“But you’ve got the beauty and strength of love on your side. And if we can find our sense of humor too…why, these are the weapons of the angels.” ~ A Summer Place (1959)

I raised my kids on old school punk rock. That is not the only music playing but it had the noticeable charm that was part of my life and  theirs. Very good character building.

Years after their attack on the punk rock world the Misfits first album was played in our car when the kids were young. I purchased the CD at Wal-Mart.  They laughed and danced to the humor and wildness of this original punk music. I told them my adventures with the band. I told my kids about a barefoot Glenn Danzig who was not much taller than my oldest son at 13. Maybe the thought of their long bangs hanging in their faces or their sense of humor is what made mean love the band so much back in the 1980s… The Misfits are a big wig band now. I remember when they were youths and fun as hell to be with.

My youngest refers to me as “Mommy!” His voice is deep enough now, at 16  to echo Glenn’s voice from the song, “Mommy, Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight?” The Walk Among Us album is my all-time favorite Halloween punk album… ever.

Maybe it is in bad taste to think about this song. The violence and shooting in Las Vegas is not something to belittle in any way. Humor is something contradictory to the grief and horror we share now. The early punk scene had a whole lot of humor mixed in with the bad stuff.

President Donald J. Trump Proclaims October 15 through October 21, 2017, as National Character Counts Week

This is different to the soullessness of our current President. He has the character of a consuming black hole. It seems ironical that he could even think of this month as a time of National Character.  I guess one can have anti-character. As the anti-man or doppelgänger.  The only character Trump has is the mockingly strange lies that fly around him.

The only good quality that bounces off him, what I find about the anti-man is that he makes me laugh. Maybe there is a thread in his tiny soul that we can pull on. Maybe his poor soul is in bondage to his big ego? Somehow we can tie his little meek soul to some astro zombies and pull it out of him?

There is a contradictory tweet for almost every occasion. ~

2018 GOP Budget Resolution, 50 hours of debate in the Senate. The Daily Fuck Gazette Vol. Two , Number 7

2018 GOP Budget Resolution, 50 hours of debate in the Senate

Brief and current channel 231 C SPAN 3 current debates…

This is happening now and it is fascinating to see the conflicts and how polarized our Senators are. Funny that they represent us. This is a motif of the current conversation. I found it interesting that there are 200 loopholes hidden in our Federal Taxes! What a big bipartisan issue!  Seems like a good place where our Senators should start working together. Republicans and Democrats both agree on investing in ‘start-up or new businesses.’ Maybe there are other places of interest for bipartisan engagement.

John Cornyn

R-Texas Majority Whip

  1. Defense spending should be a priority of Federal Government.
  2. We have the highest cooperate taxes in the world. We need to lower corporate tax rates.

Overseas investors keep money in other countries. We need to lower corporate taxes to bring them back.

  1. Invest in energy such as refineries and oil products, Gas and Wind.
  2. Invest in New Businesses.
  3. NAFTA build up stronger with Canada and Mexico. Update our highly-pressurized liquid fracking solution. Free trade.

Jeff Flake

R-Arizona

  1. Close 200 loopholes hidden in Federal Taxes that help corporate and lobbyists who receive 1.3 trillion in tax credits.

Martin Heinrich

D- New Mexico

The GOP Budget Resolution helps special interests and wealthy Americans with a once again ideal of the failed trickle-down economics.

Making life harder for working class families.

Taking away from:

  1. Cuts to Health, Education, and transportation.
  2. 5 trillion cuts to health care.
  3. 470 million cuts to Medicare
  4. Senior Citizens 470 million cuts close to ½ trillion to Medicare. Including Alzheimer’s Care
  5. Cuts to Drug health care.
  6. Big cuts to Medicaid.
  7. Student Education 8 million cuts towards Federal Pell Grants.
  8. Cuts money to Infrastructure
  9. No cost estimates available and the GOP are legalizing the need to do this.

Positive notes:

Let’s focus on our communities and how we can help and make them better.

  1. Tax help for Startup Businesses.
  2. Access to high-speed internet to all communities.
  3. Bipartisan communications across the line.

The Daily “FUCK” Gazette Vol. One , Number 9. Wake Up

The Daily “FUCK” Gazette Vol. One , Number 4 a

The, another, big protest is happening today. Here at the Daily “FUCK” Gazette, watchers of the absurd and asinine, Mr. Fuck has made a sign and Mr. Shit drew a little doodle for yoodle…. we are with you, the mighty “WE THE PEOPLE.”

“As we fight the corpocracy, the fuckupracy of this world… their lies, their abuses  that try to gobble us up into oblivion!!” ~Mr. Dang

corpocracy suck badly man !

Mr. Shit is pissed… a doodle by him..

 

The Daily “FUCK” Gazette Vol. One , Number 4

Is there a healthy NUT in the house??

It seems our Mr. Dang was busy enlightening himself again. He was feeling lost in the political drama of our time. He needed to find answers to many of his questions. He found these answers in a book by Mark Hyman, MD called The Blood Sugar Solution …. he found his answers indirectly via the food that he puts into his body. Mr. Dang, the doodle butt that he is, found out about the Toxic Triad! Mr Dang then advised me with these words,

“We are trapped in a crazy maze of statistics, power and money. We are their BIG COWS to milk.”

 So he bugged me with this sketch and told me,

“…that the world needed to understand his manifesto of change. HOw to break up this monster! He said A little at a time.”

SOme of the big nasty players in this sick game !! WHy healthcare is the way it is.

“Industrial processed, fast, and junk food is addictive. Processed food full of sugar, fat, and salt is neurochemically, biologically addictive in the same way cocaine, heroin, nicotine and caffeine are addictive, and it increases food and calorie consumption and obesity as a result.

Big Farming’s influence over the global increase in obesity. Agricultural practices and government subsidies promote the growing of cheap corn and soy which is turned into the sugar, fat, and processed food that drives disease and fosters the spread of this cheap, calorie-dense, nutrient-poor food across the globe.

Unethical, manipulative food marketing that drives eating habits. There is very little government control over Big Food’s marketing practices which shape behavior in insidious ways, especially in children.

Poverty’s relationship to obesity and disease. Poverty promotes obesity, diabetes, and chronic disease because processed food is cheap while being high in calories and low in nutrients.

The destruction of the family kitchen and home cooked meals. The family meal, and family and local food culture, has been replaced with convenience or fast foods. This has led to a generation of Americans who can’t recognize any vegetable or fruit in its original form and can’t cook except in a microwave.

Obesity is contagious. You are more likely to be obese if you have fat friends, than if you have fat relatives. Social norms promote weight gain.

Environmental toxins [7]. These contribute to weight gain, obesity, and diabetes. Not only do we have to worry about what we eat, but also the burden of plastics, metals, and pollutants which have been shown to poison and slow our metabolism leading to weight gain.

Important initiatives have been created by the Obama administration within the health care bill and Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move program that mark a beginning of a shift that needs to happen in our food climate, but to really change our obesogenic environment we need to create healthier default choices for citizens. We must focus on specific actions we can take personally and politically to alter our food landscape.”

Trump wants more money but no words of “OUR NATION IS AT WAR”…. nothing new in the scheme of lies told by our presidents… at least this guy, Army General Tony Thomas commander of U.S. special operation forces, has the balls to tell the truth. Last year under Obama’s eye of fine etiquette and diplomacy, he silently bombed the hell out of other countries… and Trump is lying about it still. We at Flopside COmics oppose war and bombing other countries but we love the truth when we hear it!!

It was great… DRAMATIC READINGS

Last night I went to a local event at the Commons At Calabasas. Presented at a Barnes & Noble in the San Fernando Valley!

Spotlight The Arts Foundation presents dramatic readings of Edgar Allan Poe’s works and other surprises at a free event on Sunday, October 23, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

What a wondrous event.  It was fun. It was local and I won the costume contest. (I was the only one wearing one too) I was not expecting it nor had it entered my mind to win. I was just being myself as I always am….

A happy night for us… a random thing to do with my son before Halloween… I am so glad we went. To hear dramatic readings of Edgar Allan Poe was a live treat!

I don’t travel far these days to go to shows. I feel the need to support my local community. For years I have supported a wide range of events a far. Now I tend to enjoy my hometown very near.

Near the beginning of the Los Angeles river were I use to go dancing and drinking as a teenager, I now enjoy the shadowy delights of the few days before Halloween, with my son. What a treat!!

Happy Halloween

Multideity of Philosophies

img_3275

“There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”

― William Shakespeare, Hamlet

I believe in the above quote completely. I have witnessed it in the many unexplained experiences I have had and through writers of a multideity of philosophies, as the deities of science, philosophy and psychology or things of art and religion.  These “more things” as the high ideals that we believe in; from conspiracy theory, to strange evil occult directives, or even in the loving brilliance of things viewed thought the eyes of wise clairvoyance!

Currently there is a new hurricane in Florida called Matthew, and so far, it has been blamed on president Barack Obama. Rush Limbaugh has blamed it on left-wing conspiracists. I am reading the Ascension Mysteries by David Wilcock, and I am wondering what the insider government is sharing about this storm. It could be evil extraterrestrials fighting the beneficent extraterrestrials which parallels the current politics between the evil Cabal and the compassionate Alliance. Yet today, I reflect back on a book that speaks of a hurricane in Florida from 1904.

img_3272

I took The Real World of Fairies off the bookshelf today. It is written by Dora van Gelder. She gives a remarkable firsthand account of a Hurricane in Miami, Florida. It is all included in Chapter 12 of her book. This book was originally published in 1904. Mine is a reprint from the Theosophical Publishing House. My edition is 1978. I originally read it in the mid-1980s. The book is available now at amazon.com.

Dora’s accounts in her book are based on her first person clairvoyance.  She speaks by means of telepathy with beings she calls water fairies, sea angels and angels of the hurricane. She affirms that these beings are involved in a creative work with nature to bring balance. Whether you believe in what she is saying or not, it is very imaginary, profound and poetic. She also holds true to a person concerned about the balance of nature as current scientists are about global warming and climate change.

“…Human beings will inevitable think that the water fairies, sea angles, and especially the angel of the hurricane himself are bad or evil, because to us they have been destroying life. But this is not so. They have destroyed forms, but they have not destroyed the life within the forms, for life cannot die. MOREOVER, THESE BEINGS HAVE PERFORMED THEIR FUNCTION IN ACCORDANCE WITH NATURAL LAW. Men destroy property, one another and the whole face of nature in times of war or for personal gain, and they read their own motives into nature. But nature has no personal feelings. All this destruction is accomplished impersonally, and even, strange to say, with a feeling of love, because the host of angels and fairies never wanted to kill anything and tries to save as much as possible. How different from war, where we try to destroy everything!”

As many books I have read over time with differing perspectives, Dora’s insights wake me up to the continuity, power and beauty of nature. Her small book is fun to read and I recommend it,  especial the last chapter entitled Hurricane.

The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity… and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself. ~William Blake
