Corporate Candidates, Consumer Walkaway

It's less than 2 weeks until the election. Americans are being asked to choose between the worst of both worlds. Corporations and their lobbies dictate our choices whether they are for candidates or consumption. They are consuming the American people and the country. Native Americans protest because their land been taken away, after being given to them in a treaty. We are all being cannibalized by elected officials who are owned by a shadow government beholden to none.
It is a Donner Party we allow ourselves to be party to.
Not anymore.
I have turned my back on consuming and corporations. The less I buy from corporations, the medical industry, the cable companies, the more freedom I have.
I make my own toothpaste from coconut oil, baking soda and peppermint essential oil. Without the dangerous fluoride waste added to every commercial brand. F-Colgate.
I make my own deodorant that my family and friends rave about because it smells better and it's less toxic than the aluminum loaded "choice" we are being
I make my own soaps and perfume, without any additives-no need to waste time going P.I. reading poisonous ingredients on a label.
There's a reason they call it "cancer on a shelf" Stop buying it!
There is a tiny house movement of people who have no desire for McMansions and want to live life off the grid.
People are foraging more now and herbalism has become an answer for many who have been poisoned by doctors pills,
Nature gives us plenty of remedies, if we just pay attention and get to know the land.
You don't have to live an expensive consumer lifestyle to have quality products you can make in your own home, with a little know how and creativity.
This is how I choose to spend my time now.
There isn't one political candidate who has improved the quality of my life since I started voting, way back in 1976. I choose to improve my own life, That won't happen wasting time in a voting booth.
We are on our own, That's not necessarily a bad thing.
We need to use the power of our purse to shut down the corporate monster that drives American culture and gives nothing back to the people. So stay tuned and I will show you how I live, it's easy! You can do it too! Power to the people!

American Horror Story

 I guess we're all going to be kept in "suspense" for a while longer. Why not? It's almost Halloween!
It's an American Horror Story!
Since when have election results been unacceptable?
Like, maybe the 2000 election with Bush and Gore and hanging chads?
I guess we can just deal with this horror of an election, it's the right time of year for it.
In the span of a week Julian Assange has had his wifi shut down. Obama told Trump to "stop whining" Michael Moore, who was all in with Bernie, sold out to Hillary with a movie about how "progressive" she is, called "Trumpland" Maybe next to Trump she is, but she's no where near Bernie Sanders, We all know how the election was rigged against him. If Trump says the election is rigged I mean why not? The whole thing is a joke.
For the life of me, I just have no where left to go from here. From Donald Trump saying he just grabs woman, and quite a few saying he did, to Bill Clinton's womanizing, the Podesta Files and Hillary's Goldman-Sachs speechifying. I can't wait for it to be over.
I mean then what's going to happen? Nothing is going to change with either of these New York players in office.
So here's what I do instead of watching politicians lie; I work on an Autumn drawing
I make my own soap, I made this batch for Halloween;

I've been a whole lot more creative this election season. It's way more productive and satisfying!

Hey, it's Columbus Day! I guess maybe there are still people out there who don't know that Columbus had no idea where he was, almost 400 years ago. He raped and pillaged his way around the new continent. He wasn't the first one here. But this country's so dysfunctional, "we can't go back" and correct the lies and propaganda that have gone on for almost 400 years. There's no damn reason to keep going on with this con of Columbus and how courageous or whatever he was supposed to be, He took slaves, he murdered, he was looking for gold. But hey, there's a Columbus Day sale and "a sucker born every minute."
This country was born on a con. We conned the Native Americans out of their land and we still do it today. Slave owners conned a country into a Declaration of Independence where, "all men are created equal" We still have made no reparations to the people we enslaved, we just move onto the next con job.
It took over two hundred more years for a Civil Rights Act to be made into law.
Is it any surprise, that we have one of the biggest con men of all time, Trump, trumping us all?
 I was thinking, what is it about the collective conscious of some Americans that identifies with him so much? One of the archetypes I thought about was this guy; Henry the VIII
Grab thee a Tic-Tac?
The only reason Trump hasn't chopped off someone's head, is
it's against the law, but there doesn't seem to be any laws for Donald Trump. I bet if he could, a couple of his wives might be headless, instead of mindless.
Trump told Hillary "You would be in jail"
Kind of like off with your head!
So who is Hillary? She's no Elizabeth the 1st, Maybe we need to go further back to the Greeks; perhaps Persephone. I think maybe, she's closer to Margaret Thatcher. Truly frightening, Trump  and Hillary, I would never wan't to be near either of them. They are people I feel deeply uncomfortable with. How comfortable was anyone with last night's debate?
 It was just another con job,
There are so many aspects of America, that just aren't working at all. People know this on an instinctual level. I believe this is why many people, look at Trump as some kind of messiah figure. It's all surface. The people who will vote for Trump, don't care that he's got a supply of Tic-Tacs, in case he see's a woman he wants to grab.
Since the Bernie-backdown, others are left with Hillary, so it's a choice of yet another dynastic Presidency. That is some choice.
It seems appropriate that yesterday, on a Sunday, a Federal Court came out with a decision that the Dakota Access pipeline will continue. So the corporate control of this country will continue, we will continue to abuse Native Americans, like we always have. Like Columbus did when he "discovered" America.
The narrative in the mainstream media is will you vote for Trump or Hillary? Email dumps or #Trumptape? I don't hear any reporting on the people who refuse to watch this spectacle and call it a "choice." Only 9% of Americans chose Trump and Clinton. 88 million Americans don't vote at all.
57.5% of Americans voted in the last presidential election.
If I actually voted, I feel like I would be voting for the Dakota Access Pipeline or voting for Trump to continue not paying taxes, even though I pay.
 Clinton will continue on with a Syrian War and droning other countries, maybe even a war with Russia. You might as well vote for the Pentagon. We know the government is way beyond giving a damn about Americans, let alone act like a functional government. I am not consenting to the American governments actions and that's why I am not voting, there's millions more like me who want nothing to do with accepting the unacceptable. It's a con.

Accidentally At War?

Two people, Hillary and Trump.
We are actually supposed to believe that is what this so-called election is about? Hillary's deleted emails and Trump's misogynist tape?
 Not even close.
Here's the set-up; on Friday, (why is it always on a Friday?) three things happened. First, was an email dump, then almost simultaneously, President Obama comes out with a seriously weird accusation against Russia, notice the details, he didn't name Putin, it's just "Russian officials". Then we have a #Trumptape, the media has known about for over a decade, this is released on Friday too.
Are we really supposed to believe this is random?
Because it's not.
The scariest thing isn't that moronic Trumptape, because anyone who didn't seriously know how Trump behaves is probably an entitled white male who thinks abusing women is a game. I've spent my entire life fighting off these clowns, it's nothing new. Another thing that's not new?
How about a war with Russia?
Like I have been predicting for years now, war is on the horizon, I don't need a magic 8 ball to tell me that either. If you are a defense contractor, or you own shares in Raytheon, Boeing, Blackwater, Lockheed, Northrup, Booze-Allen, you are part of the problem.
We have surrounded Russia with troops and arms and Georgia will be next, come winter. You have to ask the question, who profits from this? How many people have to die?
Clapper off!
First, lets take on Mr. Clapper, who is the fallguy for this Russian accusation. He is a known liar and told the Senate that the NSA did not collect information on millions of Americans, he committed
perjury and of course, was never prosecuted. On his say so, we aren't even supposed to question if
Clapper is lying about this 'Russian intelligence" accusation. How stupid do they think we are?
The irony of the NSA spying on people and leaders worldwide, then, Obama gets pissed off because someone might be doing it to us? Hey, here's an idea; let's mind our own business in America and none of this would be happening. It's ludicrous and insulting. Hillary Clinton carries water for Obama, this Russian b.s. won't stop once she gets into office.
Then there's Secretary of State, John Kerry, it boggles the mind what he says about Russia;"Russia and Syria Must Face War Crimes Investigations" Who is he kidding? Has he heard about the WMD lies that we told to invade Iraq, not to mention the U.S torture, flouting the Geneva Convention? We don't have a leg to stand on accusing any country of war crimes. So why do you think he's doing it? Another reason to go to war with Russia no matter how flimsy it is.
Why? Why now?
Could it be that the fear of having Trump in office during a time of war might scare people off Trump? Suddenly, there's a sexist tape released that could have been shown at any time, but yesterday, when those emails of Hillary's came out all of this sh*tstorm came about like some kind of cosmic accident. The oligarchy wants Hillary, they want a war, they don't care how they get it. Even if Trump got in there, he'd have to tow the line like Obama did when he got elected in 2008 and reneged on every promise he ever made. I bet that if things look bleak for Hillary, a very  disliked candidate, Obama will push the war button, it's been building up since the U.S. failed Ukraine coup.
None of this is an accident.
Hillary's emails and Donalds #Trumptape, it's a distraction, that's all. It's bread and circuses. But war with Russia is no joke. We are poking a bear. It's all the proof we need to know that the Oligarchy and the Pentagon are charging down a dangerous road no one in this country want's to go down. China will have Russia's back in this. The forces running this country don't care. We will be the one's caught in the cross hairs of this exercise in futility. But hey, if war is your thing, vote, then see what happens.

Kardashians and Clowns

Just Like the NSA
I can't be sure, but I think maybe people are catching up and catching on.
For a long time now, I have been blogging about a world at odds with itself. Mainly, my world in the United States.
I am trying to understand how we got to a place where clowns cause panic and Kim Kartrashian the icon of foolishness, is a clown people can't stop looking at.
 Kim Kartrashian gets robbed and it's a major headline. She plasters her selfies with millions of dollars in jewelry all over & shocker! She's robbed. It's front page news!
We have clowns, dangerous clowns, luring children God knows where, it's eerily familiar since we  had a serial killer in a clown costume, years ago. The mainstream media  is an epic fail reporting on trivia and abdicating their positions to investigate anything worth noticing because they have been bought and sold by corporations. So we get Kartrashians and clowns.
 Instead of Kartrashians and clowns, some people are taking a serious look at what's happening with the US election and how it devolved into the farce it is. There was an article in the Guardian (read here) that basically said what I have been saying for years. He writes that you can't rely on Hillary Clinton for fixing this country's problems, when President Obama has done nothing about the very things Hillary says she will fix. Furthermore, he takes away the tired old trope that Obama's got a belligerent congress-because he didn't at the start. He had a mandate from the American people to take us on a different course. What did we get? More of the same.
President Obama has done nothing to take on the bankers and is determined to ram the TPP deal down the throats of Americans. Then there's the truly awful Obamacare gift to the health insurance industry. We have a war of drones and a proxy war with Russia in Syria that looks to be getting weirder everyday. Why are we over there? What business is it of ours? Defense contractors.
 If President Obama has so much power and made so many promises, why didn't he follow through?
Politicians lie all the time and it's a given, what's weird is we take it for granted that they are liars and we still vote for these creatures. We act like there's some kind of choice. When you are presented with an entrenched politician like Hillary Clinton who is campaigning on some of the very things that Obama promised and never did and the other choice is a sexist blowhard, who's clearly unhinged. How is that a choice? It's like voting for Kim Kartrashian or a creepy psychopath clown.
The Pentagon paid a PR firm $540 million to produce propaganda for the Iraq War, that's just one instance we know about. Then we are nickeled and dimed over food stamps or Social Security we have paid into, but there's no problem spending money on endless war. We don't get a say in and we certainly don't vote for it.
Go ahead and keep voting. The clowns running for president get their marching orders from someone other than the American people. The Senate and Congress and corporations are in lockstep and voting won't change that. Michael Moore had an excellent explanation for the rise of Donald Trump. He said the American people want to use Donald Trump like a Molotov Cocktail and they are hoping he's going to blow up the government. But he won't. He won't be able too.
All we need is for the 100th monkey to figure out what's going on. If we can just get people to wake up and realize they are caught up in a system of propaganda, voting for hope and change, make America great again or we are stronger together with Hillary, is futile.
Wake up. People have to stop voting for some kind of messiah. Stop voting altogether. Stop being part of a system that is false. Why waste your energy? Driving from your stressful job, racing to take care of your family and pay your bills and you are supposed to find time to vote for liars? What if there's a hanging chad? What if your machine is rigged or hijacked by software? Seriously, hanging on to this civic duty of voting, while no politician feels any civic duty towards the people. I seriously can't believe how concerned people are about this election. Get real, be the 100th monkey and walk away. Then they will be out of a job and nothing they say or do will matter because no one will care. There will be no more Fox news or CIA/CNN, the war on "terror" will vanish, politicians are the actual terrorists, causing mayhem wherever they go.
No one we vote for is going to save us, we have to save ourselves.
