*I don’t see a dog either, Clicky…*
Howdy, Dear Reader! It’s missive time again at the LoL K Corral…
*/sniffs… Suit yourself…*
… Cade has kindly sent through a new one, packed with questions and observations on science, religion, politics and the end times…
*Or if Chauvin’s found guilty and not hung, drawn and quartered, Clicky… /lights up and smokes… We are in a fourth turning, after all…*
*Ha. I see what you did there…*
… So, not to be missed 😉
…Well, what are you waiting for?
… CAN … YOU … READ …

¿LLEW, NAC UOY?
Question is, who do they belong to?
The immediate thought is likely “her” because she is an adult and they appear to be on the adult-size type scalar plane. But there’s a disconnect there, for obvious reasons. Doesn’t make sense that they belong to either, but perhaps one makes more sense than the other.
No, that doesn't make sense either.
After that it kinda more becomes…what, are they. Then it kinda sinks in. So…where is your head? Or better yet, where was your head upon first encounter.
Now that we’ve got everything in both a chronological and logical order, where is your head now? I’d bet, you’re now wondering if Cade, the meek and timid Okie from Texas, is messing with your head.
As usual, just encountered a certain something completely by chance on my travels. I’ve actually already encountered quite a few certain somethings on my travels this Friday morning. Stuff that made me think.
Wanna come along for a bit and see what else I’ve seen?
What I have not seen, is scientists. That’s right, all through this lockdown and pandemic or whatever, I have not seen scientists rattling off about how great the actions taken by government(s) are, and now that we are into the vaccination stage, I’ve not seen popular and well known scientists all over the media blabbing about what you the uneducated and unwashed masses should do.
I see Anthony Fauci, and I see Neil deGrasse Tyson, but that's about it.
Are they holding the rest in reserve in case the front lines get shot down and they need an alternate? Probably. Anyway, lets go search Google for some of the more well knows scientific mouthpieces and see what they are up to. I’m just gonna go by names as they pop into my own head, starting with Lawrence Krauss.
Rut roh. Old news, but I guess that kinda explains that one. But wait…what’s this? Krauss’ name gets a mention here…
You ever notice that in horror movies, and especially supernatural horror and/or monster movies, no one ever believes in the entity in question, be it a ghost or god or monster or creature or alien or whatever weird entity…that is, they don’t believe, until the fucker shows up. Yeah they’ve heard this thing exists, they figure its legend, so they get the bright idea to go looking for it, and yep, sure as shit it or they or whatever…
Just wondering if all these acts of creating disbelief could in fact be engines driving a helluva lot of people right onto the pathways that will firmly put them in believers category. Getting them in line for some face-time with the Almighty, or at a minimum maybe one of their agents or some other flunky. And the best part is, that only a few lambs need to be sacrificed so that the rest of the population is kept informed that this mystical something is indeed still around, and not a good idea to fuck with it nor seek it.
I've gotten off topic.
Church numbers falling during a global pandemic and global lockdown? NO WAI!!! Let’s take a peek at Richard Dawkins and see where he comes up in the headlines.
Well fuck…that ain’t nCoV-2019 related…is it?
On a related note, and whilst we are thinking weapons and weaponization, lemme pass this along…
Yeah, doesn’t matter what it is nor what it does, everything from Tide-Pods to telekinesis can and will be weaponized. Let’s move on to someone out on the fringe, Seth Shostak.
Nothing much recent from Seth based upon a Google News search for his name. Perhaps I should add “covid” to the mix and see what that gives me.
Oh yeah, I forgot about that bit. Another distraction in the hunt for scientists who are being mouthpieces for the establishment. Lets try Michio Kaku.
Physicist Michio Kaku Believes We Will Soon Find Alien Life, But Contacting Them Would be A “Terrible Idea”
Meh. Looks like he’s got too much going on with his TV show and new book to be worried about COVID. Let’s check out Brian Cox and see what he might be saying about COVID.
Hrm…I guess maybe the core is indeed holding up the status quo whilst others are pushed forward to talk about this current pandemic. Not too smart to put all your eggs in one basket. Let us check one last dude whilst you sit there all befuddled as to why I’ve not singled out any female scientists that you’ve likely never heard of. The last dude we shall check is Jim Al-Khalili.
The week in radio and podcasts: The Life Scientific; The Listening Service; Witness History: CulturePlanB
At the bottom of that last article, The Guardian informs me that I’ve read 6 articles in the last year.
I'm being watched.
Question now is, sometime in the future, am I gonna be tested on how well I absorbed the information from those 6 Guardian articles that I (according to them) allegedly read?
Here’s the real question, cupcake…
Q: Why should I give one single shred of a fuck what some cosmologist, astronomer or physicist thinks about coronavirus/COVID-19/nCoV-2019?
A: Where are all the rock-star physicians at?
Where are all the rock star medical doctors, virologists, chemists, botanists, biologists, anthropologists, historians? Wear dey at, huh? My guess is gonna be that those who likely could be (or should be) speaking out have signed so goddamn many NDAs with so goddamn many interests that they can’t even comment on the weather without getting fired, sued and/or suicided, let alone comment on this SARS-CoV-2 virus thingie. Hundreds of trillions of dollars hang in the balance here. Don’t need some poison pill fucking up the works.
Here’s an interesting one for you to chew on…
…or at least, it’s an interesting thought to me. Wanna hear why?
OK, fine...you've talked me into it.
Supposedly, the only unforgivable sin (according to The Bible) is rejection of the Holy Spirit. One would think this means that when the Holy Spirit shows up, you do what it instructs you to do…no questions asked. Thing is tho, there appear to be all kinds of entities floating around out there in the realms of what I call “Else”. The ether or the spiritual realms or whatever. Anything that isn’t some tangible and understandable something, is “Else”, and it is supposedly brimming with entities and interests of all kinds.
But here, in our time and times, is where things get even more slippery. We, live in times when “psychic communication is almost commonplace. Satellite, radio, telephone, television, microwave/cellular, cable, Internet, cinemas, books, newspapers, magazines, flyers, mail, signs, billboards, bumper stickers, t-shirts, product packaging, not to mention all kinds of crazy stuff being worked on, in secret, by interests of all kinds, that you/I haven’t a clue about and likely never will. Hell, even things as “simple” as electricity, running water, gas and availability of products/supplies at local markets and retailers can be considered communication pathways because you are transmitted information when a something that was previously available is no longer available. All kinds of ways for ideas and information to get into your head, all kinds of ways for ideas to get into you, and ultimately these things will effect your spirit. They will affect your thinking and your feeling.
A question that I personally have wrestled with is “how would you know?” Meaning…if some spirit or entity whatever, showed up (in…person?*), and started communicating directly with me, how in the hell am I to know that they are who they say they are? How am I in any way equipped to deal with what is happening and why? I can tell you what society would say…
Society: Dude, you’re fucking crazy!
Simple. You’ve had a psychotic break, your brain is malfunctioning, and it’s just making things up.
Now, I mention this because, were I to encounter some less-than-standard type of entity, I am pretty much on my own. I cannot rely on anyone but myself. I cannot lean on anyone. I cannot tell anyone, and I mean NO ONE…because if I do, I’m instantly gonna be branded a loon, and things in my life are about to get even more complex because I’m likely gonna be thrown into “the system”. And we all know both how great that system is, and what we think of those that wind up in it. You are now branded a crazy, for life…marked. Everything you knew, is gone. And we don’t want that now do we?
Yep, yer on yer own.
Might wanna hit the public library and/or book stores and be discrete about seeking help. Just, keep in mind that agencies of all kinds from all nations are watching those publications and making note of who is reading what. Heh, heh, heh…we live in interesting times in that all kinds of folks are having all kinds of vague encounters with those seeking information, eh?
So now, we’ve decided that maybe its best to go dry. We’ll work with what we have in our own personal databanks.
Q: Who do predators seek?
A: Rut roh...
If you’ve any education of any kind, you likely know that predators seek the weak and the sick. The vulnerable and the clueless. Those who aren’t paying attention or have made some kind of mistake.
OH THE HUMANITY!!! I am completely and totally fucked!!! I’m under some kind of psychic and/or spiritual attack because I’m weak or sick or stupid or just plain ol’ wasn’t paying attention! Maybe all that!!! Wait…sanctuary. That’s what I need…I need some kind of sanctuary!!!
CHURCH!!! Get your ass to church!!! But wait…which one?!?!!?? Churches are made up of warring factions who all think that they, and only they, have all the answers!!! And what about religions?!?? Holy shit are there a shitton of them. Which one actually does have the answers I seek?!?!?!?
I’m desperate here. I don’t have time for all that. Some kind of creature from another dimension is pestering the fuck out of me and putting all kinds of weird ideas into my head, and I need help RIGHT FUCKING NOW!!!!
W: What are you on about?
Cade: Just taking another trip down the evaluation highway.
W: Don’t you mean, reevaluation highway?
Cade: Same thing. Same roadway. Just because I’ve been down the same road before, doesn’t mean the road itself is the same.
W: Trying to be clever?
Cade: No. Just pointing out that each and every pass down “the same road” isn’t the same. No telling what you might see.
W: Like re-watching a movie or rereading a book.
Cade: Or similar.
W: Similar, not same.
Cade: Or maybe even same but not similar.
W: Or maybe not similar, not same.
Cade: Could be. Books get revised, movies get edited, and same roadways change.
W: In effect making them neither similar nor same.
Cade: Correct, I too have likely changed. My environment has potentially changed.
W: New 65 inch ultra high definition television, new Blu-ray player, new ultimate-supreme collectors edition of the movie on Blu-ray Disc, 7.2 wireless surround sound audio system, new couch…
Cade: New girlfriend. New start. New, new, new. So, yeah, not similar not same.
W: Your roadway has changed. But it’s still the same movie.
Cade: Sorta. And yet not at all the same.
Kinda weird to think about the concept of “a slow poisoning of the mind”, and especially as it relates to learning and growing. In this instance, someone is putting forward that to consume anything non-scriptural is to poison oneself. In effect, one could argue that this someone is making the case for there to be but a single publication in existence…The Holy Bible. I already have a question regarding that…
Q: Which one?
I dunno how many versions of The Holy Bible there are, but there are a bunch. Getting the wrong one, or listening to someone teach from the wrong one, could doom your soul to eternal damnation. I wonder if pastors get kickbacks from the publisher for recommending their version.
Here’s a really weird kink in that paradigm from above.
Quite a few published works there, and I didn’t have to go very far at all to find some stuff that wanders off into conjecture and opinion.
What I’m wondering about here is when one makes a distinction between that which is church policy, and that which is “scriptural”, and even that which is personal opinion. What about that which is social and those things that are financial? “Pilgrim’s Progress” features heavily in that writing, and I dunno if I personally would consider anything in either of these works as “scriptural” just because a Bible verse is quoted here and there. But here’s where things get really funky. The Bible contains stories of all kinds. Historical events, tales, parables, all kinds of adventures and weird happenings.
Q: Are my own stories and adventures worthless because they are not documented in The Bible, and what exactly may have God had in mind when they stopped writing and shut the book, yet life continued?
A: I missed the show.
I was born at the wrong time. I did not walk with the prophets, hence, I guess I gotta just do my best to relive their bullshit in my own time(s) instead of living my own life and finding my own way in my own times as they did. Gotta establish my own walk with God. Find my own feet.
I'm stumbling like crazy here. This is fucking nuts to think about.
They, did not have a Bible. How in the fuck did they make it through living their lives “according to scripture” in those times when there was no scripture? Certainly not the scripture we have today.
Ah yes…reliance upon the priests. If you want your scripture, and you wanna know what is/is not scriptural, gotta go to the priests. They’re the ones with the books and the backing of the church(es).
…is that a volcano in the background I see? And is that tea, and doesn’t tea contain caffeine? I bet that photographer went through hell setting up that shot. Gotta be at the right spot, at the right time of day, and everything in your life has to run smoothly in order for that to happen. Gotta have the correct permissions to be there, gotta have the right weather, and you gotta have the right staff, gotta have the right equipment. You did remember to bring everything, right? Did I? I can’t remember.
Coffee...you need coffee. Strong coffee and lots of it.
So yeah…calm. That calm. Calm like the calm depicted in the photo. Fuck yes my mind can be that motherfucking calm! What the hell are you on about regarding calm minds looking like a caffeine factory next to a goddamn volcano?!?!?!?
btw…i 4 got to mentions
HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!!!
…we interrupt this previously joyous occasion for the M-F/9-5 working public with a special news bulletin.
Please stand by….
I wonder what the percentage of people who work Monday thru Friday and 9 AM to 5 PM actually is. Like, compared to those who work other shifts/other days. Hell, some of us are on the clock 24 hours a day, 365/366 days a year. And to think even further on the subject, the phrase “9 to 5” implies permanent, full-time employment. No afternoon shifts, no swing shifts, no graveyard shifts, is not part-time work, is not temporary work, is not seasonal work, is not occasional nor as/when needed work, no weekends, no overtime, no split days nor split days off, no rotating days, no rotating hours, off work on all holidays, just straight up 40-hour work week, 8 hours per day Monday thru Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM with likely a paid lunch and possibly two paid breaks of 1 morning and 1 afternoon, off work on Saturdays and Sundays, and a minimum of two weeks of paid vacation every year. What percentage of people in the US of A have a job like that anymore? Ya think anyone else in the world is thinking about stuff like this? If so, ya think maybe Google might could point us to some information?
Less than 2%? Answer #2 says they’ve run some numbers based upon US Census data and come up with 1.9% of Americans work 9 to 5 based upon a start-time window between 8:45 AM and 9:09 AM? Jesus that’s fucking horrifying sounding. Tell me we aren’t living in a time when the unions are dead.
Answer #5 says that 31% of Americans work a 40 hour work week, but that’s not really indicative as to when they are working those 40 hours. Working 9-5 is a helluva long way from working from 3 PM to 11 PM or working 10 PM one day to 6 AM the next day. Shifts like that don’t provide an individual with much time for doing much of anything except either preparing for, or recovering from, work. No telling what days you might have off either, and for those poor folks working the graveyard shifts, having off on a certain day doesn’t always mean you’ll actually be off on that day because YOUR days start at night.
I found that out the hard way when I worked a midnight shift for 4 months. I was off on Fridays and Saturdays, sure…but my Sunday started at 11 PM on Saturday night. In effect, I wasn’t off on Saturdays at all because I had to be rested and ready for work by 11 PM Saturday night. I basically got 1 day off per week…Friday. The rest of the time was preparing for and coping with the rigors of working all night, trying like hell to sleep during the day, and also trying to stay well, healthy and not die in the process.
(and keep my fucking job/do it well)
…no coincidence, they say. Lemme do a little copy/paste for anyone too lazy to go read the article.
Research shows the timing of these incidents isn’t likely a coincidence, Slutkin said, since the more people see violence and take it in as “normal” the more likely they are to commit violence themselves. “We know historically there is a strong copycat phenomenon with high-profile mass shootings,” Dr. Jonathan M. Metzl, Director of the Center for Medicine, Health, and Society at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, told Insider. “And so when there’s one in the news it tends to spur a number of copycat events, so people feel a contagion effect. One leads to another, leads to another.” “This is a lot of people who are on edge having the means to do something and seeing that other people are doing it,” he added.
Kinda like rushing to get “vaccines”. Or wearing masks. Or shaming others for not being part of the herd and going with the flow. Or joining TikTok or some other social media something. Or starting your own podcast. Or buying a hot stock. Or getting some hot new merch. Or watching some hot new show. Or going to a rally or protest for some hip new activist something. Or jumping on any and every new trend that may just lead to you gaining some notoriety or standing out in some way so one can feel good about themselves. Hell, is there anything at all on this planet, in our time(s), that is not driven by some kind of copycat mentality? Speaking of copycats…
I’m being a copycat right now by commenting on this. Being trendy. Being current. Being hip.
Caw Pee Cat
Cop Peek At
Cop E Cat
Cats coping with...the unknown?
Making the unknown known is…tricky. There’s a permanence to everything we do. Everything goes on your permanent record. Gotta make each and every decision count, and most importantly, we need feedback. So considering that familial, friends and work/professional peers type of support is gonna be difficult and perhaps even impossible in obtaining, how does one obtain feedback regarding the decisions that we make? Is it possible that sometimes you just gotta go public? Lemme relate a bit here for those who might be a shade lost as to what I mean.
Speaking of feedback, you know that “customer satisfaction” card that is in the packaging when you buy some new something? But the thing is, they usually want you to fill the survey out and return it within 15 to 30 days of purchase. You just bought the fucking thing, it probably works out of the box, so of course those who take the time to fill it out are likely gonna give the product some high marks.
Q: Why do companies not ask you to fill it out and send it one or two or even five or more years after you bought it?
A: Heh. Heh heh. Heh heh heh ha hee haw har har har and a tee hee hee too.
They want feedback that is gonna give them ways to get new suckers to make initial purchases, not information that is gonna create loyal customers who come back again and again because your products are great. The market(s) for most products are as such that customers don’t have much of a choice in the first place, and retailers are gonna make those choices even more thin. If you want a certain item, and the company can stay in business, they’re likely to get you again and again even if they are pumping out complete shit.
When you have a problem, to whom do you turn?
When you have a problem, why do you have to turn to anyone?
Who the fuck told you that, when you have a problem, you must turn to others?
If a carnivorous insect takes a shit on my tomato, my tomato is no longer considered vegan. Wait…what in the hell am I even talking about…insects are now vegan. It’s all about the protein…
who gives a fuck where it comes from.
I guess someone got the message that any, and I man ANY, processed food, is likely to contain insect matter of some kind. Pretty sure there are even regulations which specifically allow for a certain percentage of processed foods to contain insect and other unexpected/unintended matter. Sure, you can try and be super-accurate screening out the beetle poop, dead ants, moth eggs, mouse whiskers and pheasant feathers, but you cannot get it all. Exceptions must be made, otherwise, commerce suffers. If commerce suffers, nothing is produced, money does not change hands, people go hungry, illnesses crop up, and wars of all kinds loom large in the wings.
Are you really gonna tell me that there are people in the world who do not know what civil defense sirens going off in non-stormy conditions means? Cause if it ain’t stormy, and the sirens are going off, it means only 1 of 2 things.
1: The system is being tested;
That’s it. Civil Defense sirens only sound during storms where a funnel cloud or tornado has been sighted, when the system is being tested, or when the nukes and/or bombers are inbound.
Funny that, upon hearing the siren, they direct me to check my local media. I don’t even own a fucking television.
And so endeth another. More time wasted…another day or two or three or so, gone. Nothing learned. Nothing gained. Nothing to show for our time. Nothing at all. Although…it’s now Monday, and humans are launching UFOs on Mars.
My entire life, Martians have been slinging UFOs our way. I’ve lived long enough to see the tides turn. 19 April, 2021…humans launched a flying object on Mars. My divorce was final 4 years ago today.
Until next time, Dear Reader. Have a Song…
Dear Reader, we have received an unexpected missive from the Okie Devil of Text US. I have read it and it is somewhat controversial in nature.
Therefore may I suggest you invest 45 minutes of your precious time to listen to a recent talk from philosophy lecturer Wes Cecil before embarking on the missive, below. It is from Wes’s latest series of talks on IDENTITY, and deals with the subject of abstraction…
*Thank you, Clicky… /lights up and smokes… Cade’s picked a prickly subject for sure and I really don’t want Dear Reader to pop a blood vessel…*
How’s that 2020 US election voter fraud investigation thingie coming, eh? You still investigating? Or at least keeping up with the goings on? Still angry? You still interested in stopping the steal?
You've lost interest haven't you?
Your rage has subsided. The blood pressure has dropped. You no longer want to break shit and tear shit up because you didn’t get your way. You’ve settled back into playing the video game “Among Us” and are chasing your phantoms there. Haven’t you?….HAVEN’T YOU??!!
!!! !!! !!! !!! !!!ANSWER ME!!! !!! !!! !!! !!!
!!! I NEED ANSWERS AND I NEED THEM NOW !!!
Welp, let’s check in with some of those folks who just might not have the option to start and stop investigations based upon some passionate and potentially personal whims. That’s right, let’s check in with the folks whose job it is to actually respond to and thoroughly investigate claims/allegations of voter fraud and see these investigations all the way to their conclusion. The people whose asses are actually on the line and their livelihood and potentially even their freedom depends upon their findings. Quick question before we check tho…
Q: Is is possible, to conceal an actual fraud, by inundating and overwhelming any investigative body with spurious claims of fraud?
A: ? dumping a fuckton of chaff into the air to jam the radars whilst the raiders escape in the fog ?
Getting the official body to chase phantoms? They are out chasing shadows whilst the real culprit(s) slip right through the cracks. And there are cracks. There are always cracks. Cracks are good. Cracks allow the road to breathe, give it a little flex, not so rigid that it breaks, and they keep the highways nice, and straight, and navigable, and free of potholes, and allow you to journey carefree, clueless and in comfort on a smooth thoroughfare. You only have to worry about operating the vehicle and navigating to your destination. Your worries about the infrastructure are limited to bitching when things don’t go your way or meet your standards. You might even be one of those assholes that doesn’t slow down in construction zones because your own schedule is too important. You’ve got somewhere to be. You’ve got a something on your schedule that needs to be completed and checked off. Nevermind that, whilst blazing through this construction zone, you might just inadvertently clear the schedule of some poor road worker permanently for them.
BTW…do you know the purpose of seams? Seems not, but you should…they help prevent a something from becoming indestructible.
Interfering with an election, simply by claiming that an election has been interfered with – It’s an interesting concept. When one considers the level of bullshit that “the news media” slings out daily, tough to know who is telling the truth and who isn’t. Tough to know what their intentions are. We’re are looking for allies afterall, right?
Anyway, since I awoke wondering what’s up with the 2020 US election fraud investigation(s), let’s us go wander around and search Google News on this fine Wednesday to see what is cooking for breakfast. My money is on “dead horse” served up by the angsty and angry staff working in hell’s kitchen.
Um…right off the bat, this sounds to me like a bunch of people settling personal scores and/or eliminating potential rivals, and utilizing the US Government and its systems to do so. Moreover, the entire article is personal. Name after name of verbal fencing, sounds like some leveraging is going on, but I don’t see any reference(s) to any official investigations or their findings. Starting to get the feeling that no one gives a shit if fraud occurred or not, they just wanna see a fight. Meh, let’s keep going.
Guess I’m an idealist in thinking that no matter who is elected to an office, they will always strive to do the right thing. The partisan stuff is just personal beliefs, but truth is truth, and when truth comes knocking, Democrat, Republican or any other party affiliation goes out the fucking window, and you do the right thing…party be damned. Tough thing to do what is right by you which you also feel is right by others because it is truthful and correct under the circumstances. Got people breathing down your neck to do a something irrespective of whether it is right or wrong, and you stand your ground. You could easily wind up on the wrong side of an issue. I mean, we are talking fraud here. The fraudsters are going to seek to destroy anything or anyone in their path, and they’ll do so by any means.
Confusing. Very confusing.
I’ve heard this “MyPillow” name mentioned here and there over the past several months, but I have no idea what its all about. I never looked into it because it smelled like nothing more than advertising to me. Someone seeing an opportunity to hawk their wares because a crowd has assembled, and jumping on the opportunity. I mean, why else would they always be referring to MyPillow? That said, I’m reading about this nonsense now, and in the article, this caught my eye…
“Over the course of the next four to five weeks, I’m going to dump all this evidence for all to see every day on my new platform Frank, where the world can’t suppress it,” he said. Lindell says Frank, his proposed social media platform, will combine ideas from YouTube and Twitter, and will be able to handle half a billion users. People kicked off YouTube will be given a “bonus” if they join the service, he says.
So yeah, as I figured…advertising. Using one vaporous something (stop the steal) to advertise another vaporous but semi-tangible something (a social media platform) via some very tangible and real somethings (MyPillow, elections, this CEO dude, Trump, rallies, political parties, you, etc..) Advertising has now so wormed its way into politics and political coverage, anything and everything politics is now gonna look like every other fucking sport. From darts to billiards to poker to NASCAR to FIFA to NRL, the players, venues and fans are going to be plastered with sponsors, their logos, and the products they’re advertising. Politics has always been a commercial enterprise, but advertising has been taboo.
Ya know, because of like ethics and stuff.
People getting paid to say shit that they may or may not actually believe in. Getting paid to push products they don’t actually use. Politicians are supposed to believe in stuff, not be a face and a mouthpiece for special interests who have the cash to purchase someone’s honesty. That’s an actor’s job…right? We don’t mind actors advocating stuff because we know in our heart of hearts that actors are full of shit. They get paid, to pretend. A very clear a distinct line there. But politicians? How the fuck are we supposed to know the difference between when they are telling the truth, and when they are being paid to tell “a” truth? Guess we’ll just have to go with our gut(s), eh?
More advertising. “Stop The Steal” is a brand. A brand designed to sell hats, t-shirts, bumper stickers and other “merch”. Which…HEY! Let’s go see if there are any copyrights or trademarks that have been filed for “Stop The Steal”, and if so, who the owners are.
Rut roh…that’s result #2 on a Google Search for “stop the steal copyright” (without quotes). Looks like someone may have set up a booth, sold their wares, then skipped town. Or, am I just jumping to conclusions with no evidence to backup my claims?
I see nothing regarding any copyright, I tried searching with quotes and got zero results, so let’s us go look for “stop the steal trademark” (without quotes) and see what that gets us.
Anyone else notice anything completely and totally wrong with that URL? It says:
This is how things get sideways. Right there, in text, because of peculiarities regarding URL formatting and what is probably just some lazy-assed thinking in design, a headline goes from reading “3.5 million” to “35 million” just like that. And don’t try and tell me it doesn’t matter either…
It does. It absolutely matters.
Let’s quasi-digress from that thought tho and see if “stop the steal” has an official website or something similar.
Stone again…Roger, Stone.
Q: Do you know what “vaporware” is?
If not, let’s get you some answers.
This is a battle for hearts and minds. A battle of ideas. A battle for spirit, and ultimately a battle for souls. A battle for and over the body and all it may (or may not) contain. Abstract and non-conventional warfare using vaporous weapons designed for vaporous concepts.
Heart = abstraction
Mind = abstraction
Spirit = abstraction
Soul = abstraction
Body = abstraction
Idea = abstraction
“They” are trying to like hell to get these abstractions into manifesting into tangible things. To bring the ethereal into the real. Make fantasy a reality, if you will. One does not fight the body for the soul.
This is ideas vs ideas where “their ideas > your ideas”.
The body is simply a conduit for reaching these things they seek. Its possible that at some point you’re gonna have to stand. Or fold. Or maybe just get tossed out of the game entirely.
Reasonable. Reasonable people. lolz…”reason” suddenly appears in the big middle of discussing abstractions. Keep in mind that, upon starting this writing, I simply did a Google search for “2020 election fraud” (without quotes) and I’m simply going down the line of results. I’m not putting these together to fit some own personal narrative of mine, I’m going step by step down the search results, taking them one by one, reading some of the articles, and commenting on the whole mess as I go with no pre-planning and no forethought. Woke up this morning, wondered what was going on with the election fraud stuff, and now here we are.
So with that in mind, why don’t we think about “reason” a bit and just what it might mean. First up is that in order for someone to be considered “reasonable”, they must first find these election fraud claims “unreasonable”. Seeing is how “election fraud” itself is far from unreasonable, our search for reason and/or reasonable people is gonna be rough. But in this instance, things are even more muddy because the defendant herself and/or her defense is twisting the meaning of “reasonable” and/or “reasonable people” by stating that…
“No reasonable person would conclude that the statements were truly statements of fact.”
What makes people reasonable? What makes a person reasonable? Concessions? Conceding some point? Allowing doubt to creep into your mind?
Hrm…this is an interesting tack they’ve taken. It’s a confusing course. Like a zig or a zag a ship makes in order to avoid a torpedo. But here’s where things get even more interesting…
‘The filing Monday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia claims Powell’s statements were so absurd they couldn’t be taken seriously.’
Absurity. Is “absurdity” a fact? We are afterall doing a dance here between reason, fact, abstraction, and absurdity. Question is, who is gonna win this dance-off. Reason? Or fact. Or absurdity.
A supreme authority as to what is, and is not, as it pertains to votes and voting. “Reason” is questioning, and “reasonable” is having sound judgment.
Election auditor wrote ‘election fraud facts’ report for GOP senators who tried to overturn the 2020 election
I knew it…fucking NINJAS are involved. Ninjas are sneaky assassins. I guess Cyber Ninjas are hacker assassins who…hack and assassinate in cyberspace? There’s a word you don’t hear anymore…cyberspace. Its a very abstract concept, cyberspace is. It’s basically nothing more than electrical conduits with more specific purposes than your average power grid types of transmission lines. Electrons made of bits, and bytes and packets instead of just dumb electrons headed for your electric can-opener or the charging station for your smart-phone or smart-car or whatever.
‘In a statement provided to the Arizona Mirror by Fann after this article was first published, Logan confirmed that he’d written the document to assist U.S. senators who either wanted to object to the certification of the Electoral College or wanted to insert evidence into the official record. He said he was asked specifically to include evidence that would support the national security concerns that some senators had.’
Oh, but there’s more…
‘Logan did not say who asked him to compile the information or which senators it was for.’
This is vague as fuck. “he’d written the document to assist U.S. senators…” what? Of his own volition? He what… watched the news, heard senators complaining, made a list of what they were complaining about, then started to investigate of his own accord and document his findings? He/his firm was/were hired by the Arizona Senate President to audit the Arizona election results. So, what the fuck is involved in this auditing process anyway, and why is this Cyber Ninja writing election related shit tailored for U.S. Senators on the State of Arizona’s dime? Not only that, but how the hell is a report on the election audit being released before the audit even takes place. What am I missing here?
FUCK!!!!!!!! PAYWALL!!!!!!!! PRIVLEDGED INFORMATION!!!!!!!!!
I guess the fact that some firm that has been hired to audit election results in Arizona is headed up by someone who just may not be the most unbiased of people, and this is causing dismay amongst certain interests who themselves are very biased and would prefer that their interests are seen to.
FUCK!!!!!!!! PAYWALL!!!!!!!! PRIVLEDGED INFORMATION!!!!!!!!!
I get the feeling that anything and everything a “news organization” provides is 100% their opinion, which is why they can charge people to get at it even if it is considered to be “public information”. Hey, I’m willing to make reasonable accommodation since you’ve got all that bloated overhead and you really really need that 5th home out in Flagstaff, but allowing those 12 ads to display on your article is about all I can afford to give at this point in my life.
Promoter of false election fraud claims is raising money for Arizona Senate GOP’s election audit. Is that even legal?
Ah HA! Now we’re getting somewhere. It’s not necessarily the State of Arizona that has hired the auditors, but the GOP? And in fact, has done so via fundraising? The GOP doesn’t have $150,000 to spare, even if they honestly think that election fraud has occurred? How the hell can private interests employing partisan firms ever expect to be objective in reaching factual conclusions? Really fucking weird that all this is going on in the big middle of some supposed global pandemic. Sounds to be like the fuckers are just bored and don’t have anything better to do. Has an almost mischievous timbre to it. Idle hands.
Building an army. Great. That’s just what the world needs…another fucking “war on”. War on this, war on that, war on someotherfuckingthing, now a war on voting and voters. Hey…citizens…voting public…I think elements within the very government you vote on and for? Yeah, they just declared war on you, and they’re raising an army to fight you. Salty talk. Very salty talk.
Minorities. Prejudices. Racism. Race…ism. Race…ism…in Motor City and the Motor City State? Hrm.
Hey, I got news for you…rich people don’t like nor associate with poor people because they’re prejudiced. Unless of course it is beneficial in some way for them to do so.
Hey, I got more news for you…poor people don’t like nor associate with rich people because they’re prejudiced. Unless of course it is beneficial in some way for them to do so.
I notice “a major spike in coronavirus cases” gets a mention. Which, how’s that Legionnaires thing going? Ya’ll get that all squared away yet? That new multi-million dollar water project get all the funds distributed to the right places so people can have safe drinking water yet?
‘Despite the courts’ near-universal rejection of claims of fraud, including the Michigan Supreme Court, Ruth Johnson, a Republican state senator and former secretary of state, said there was a “lot of gaming of the system.”
‘”There was more cheating last year in an election than I’ve ever seen in Michigan,” said Ms. Johnson, who is chairwoman of the State Senate’s elections committee.’
Welp, she said it, so it must be so. Great logic in adding more variables. That is almost sure to make this shit sandwich less gamey.
Wait…these are the same fuckers who blocked me from an earlier article which could have contained factual “official” information, but now they’re giving me access to an opinion piece? Think of the children. Get them while they’re young. Educate.
I hate to tell you this, but if you have some static/concrete system for educating anyone, and especially children, you are part of the problem. You’re taking a “one-size-fits-all” approach to a very dynamic world. So with that in mind, what do you do with those who don’t fit into your cookie-cutter mold(s)? Throw them in special ed? Put them on the short bus? Hide them away? Forever label them as “this”, and that’s all their gonna be in your beautiful and perfect posthumanist world?
‘Americans remain starkly divided in their confidence in elections because of lies about voting fraud.’
I dunno how many articles you the reader have read here, but if you’ve read any of them, you’ve probably seen the word “lies” appear at least once. A trend in all of these articles is that “lies” is probably used somewhere. Some have said the election results were fraudulent, some have said they were not, you believed one side or the other, and now everything that is not within your own scope of truth, is lies. There have been many inconsistencies found, yet you dismiss them as irrelevant because the numbers were not sufficient to change the result(s).
But what about next time?
“Election fraud” has been front and center since the 2000 US elections, and it’s almost as if there is this constant probing going on. Looking for weaknesses. Looking for exploits. Question is, would anything be being done if people weren’t crying foul? Would there be active interest in ensuring that the elections and their results were fair an accurate? This piece reeks of taking advantage of the lockdown/pandemic and remote education more than an objective look at whether or not an educator wants to delve off into the particulars of election processes when teaching on the subject of government. To teach someone how to participate in a something, without first explaining to them the processes involved in why they may even want to vote at all? Tsk tsk…you’re assuming that everyone votes, and I guess suggesting that everyone should vote. If you make education about voting and voting processes mandatory, children are likely going to believe that voting and/or participating in the electoral processes are also mandatory.
‘Equally important is exposing more of the general adult population to the elections process. As the state’s only nonpartisan provider of voter education, no other entity is better suited for this than Clean Elections.’
Why is there functionality on that site to donate to political candidates in order to…what…get them on the state ballot? Is that where 100% of the money goes? Regardless, I don’t think that e-begging for money for political candidates is very “clean”. In fact, its fucking filthy. BTW, how is Phoenix doing? Still sinking? Giant cracks still forming and stuff? Yeah, our winds from the east are getting more and more prevalent, and gotta be something driving the winds to come in from the east this far north. I realize that the Rockies are sinking too, but something has triggered a change in the prevalent winds around here over the past several years. Anymore, no fucking telling which direction the wind may come from.
Just seems to me that segregating the voting process from the governmental processes us going to have the effect of creating a sect of worker bees who do nothing but vote. They don’t know who they are voting for, nor why, they just have this strange feeling of being compelled to vote, and no idea from whence these urges spring. They just…do it.
This is an advertisement. Oohm but…FREE PIZZA!!!!!!!!!!! I get the feeling that they want people to come out for an entirely other purpose. Perhaps a photo-op? Something with loads of people that can be captioned with something like “election fraud townhall meeting jammed to capacity by outraged voters looking for answers”
(and free pizza).
The “drinks” bit is kinda vague. They serving beer at this thing? Hell, open to the public with free pizza and drinks is almost certain to attract a crowd…in the middle of a pandemic…in a state who is currently undergoing a major spike in coronavirus cases. Good idea. Also a good idea to hold it in Battle Creek and not Detroit. Homeless and poor folk woulda showed up and ate all the pizza.
Russia And Iran Spread Election Fraud Conspiracies – But Didn’t Try To Alter Results – Intel Report Finds
Everything is so classified anymore that getting accurate information is gonna be rough. The very people who collect and analyse all of this information are the same people who are making it available and/or unavailable. The same people who decide what means what, what should be released, what should not, and they’re prolly the same people who are gonna redact information when you put in a FOI request. They ain’t gonna make it easy for ya. There’s probably some very real and even some very justified spite in some of these positions. Positions that exist for the sole purpose of making someone crawl through rivers of shit so that you don’t have to. They put in the hours, whilst you just wanna grab the data and run with it for your own purposes. Still, these folks do get paid. As to what belongs to them and what doesn’t? Welp, they are citizens too, so their ideas might differ from yours. Now, regarding that story? lolz…agencies, who deal in deception, are coming clean about what they did and didn’t do in the US elections? And you believe that?
Hrm…hasn’t FOX News recently undergone a paradigm shift as far as supporting/not supporting conservatives and/or Republicans? I wonder if they did this to alleviate any culpability in future lawsuits. Would be a smart move to distance themselves from any wackos that might get FOX sued, or at least give them an out when they do get sued.
“The Fox anchors were not innocent bystanders and the disinformation generated during their interviews was no accident. Prior to the interviews, the Fox anchors decided to join forces with Giuliani and Powell to disseminate disinformation about Smartmatic,” the filing states.’
From that…”…identity management systems for civil registration…”. I wonder if that includes COVID-19 vaccination passport types of stuff? Aren’t vaccinated?
Question is, does this lawsuit have merit? Is it really a good idea to silence a media outlet because they choose to give certain opinions a platform from which to speak? Seems to me that if all these election fraud people really are kooks who are singling you out and defaming you, you’d be thrilled because you can easily refute the claims. There are no jack-in-the-box types of surprises, everything is right out there in the open. Your machines operate according to specs, perform as-advertised, no glitches, no malfunctions, no tampering, here’s the proof. You do have a QA department, right? Do lots of testing? Seems like they’d be pissing their pants to address anything they or the development teams haven’t thought of as well as defend their designs. You’re a private company sure, but aren’t you under government contract(s)? Aren’t you contractually bound to disclose information when and if requested? Or did someone miss a step somewhere. Is anything of yours public record?
Yeah boy…made it through the first two pages of a Google News search for “2020 election fraud”…without quotes. Is there anyone left? Anyone hang with me through the entire ride?
Q: How am I, a lowly and below-average citizen of the United States of America and resident of the State of Texas and the Planet Earth/Terra, supposed to consume / digest / comprehend such mountains of information?
No answers, I have them. Guess I’ll have to rely upon you. Guess I’ll have to assimilate.
Mystery = SOLVED! Next?
*Are you thinking what I’m thinking, Clicky?*
Dear Reader… Have a Ted Talk… 😉
Why is it, Dear Reader, that high-profile scientists in the Mainstream Media sound more like preachers?
*Exactly, Clicky. It does my head in…*
*Why’d they do it, Clicky?*
*Ah, wealth and power and fame, of course…*
*Another Unelected Flying Official fond of preaching…*
… Cade Fon Apollyon, who is not a scientist, has never claimed to be a scientist and certainly doesn’t have any money, power or fame, but asks a ton of pertinent questions and makes astute observations, has sent through a missive for us, dealing with the subject of UFOs.
Well, hello there.
How is your world treating you? I have no idea what your answer might be, but for the sake of a happy and joyous world, let’s pretend you are doing well.
Let’s start off with some math, yeah?
5 has 7 base components, not 5.
1 1 1 1 1 = 6
The 5 individual parts, and the sum of its parts = 1.
But there’s a hidden seventh property there that most may not take into account…0.
When something is, nothing leaves.
Something, displaces, nothing.
If that nothing does not exist, neither can something. There’s nowhere for the something to go.
Q: Does this mean that there is not 1 “nowhere” or “nothing”, but 2? Maybe even 3? Maybe more?
This gets me to thinking about the concept of “possibility”, and also the concept(s) of “possibility” over time. Why a something cannot exist at one point in time, but for some reason can exist at another point in time. Or maybe why a something could exist at some point, but for some reason can no longer exist. How things line up in such a way that time either allows or prevents a something from existing. I really need to ask another question here…
Q: Is it possible that the tumblers of time turn in such a way that allows or prevents certain things from being known?
A: Pretty far out thought, eh?
Albert Einstein is famous for many things, but one of those things is said to be a statement he made whilst on a walk with a student named Esther Salaman…
“I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts, the rest are details.“
– Albert Einstein
I want to know...His...thoughts.
Welp, what if (regarding what Einstein wanted to know) God hasn’t thunk those thoughts yet? Or what if God thunk them so long ago, that even God has forgotten what in the hell they were thinking? Or at least, the thoughts are so old that it takes a bit to pull the information up in the databanks, which in “God terms” is about 538 average human lifetimes? Al may not be around long enough to get the answer(s) he seeks. Or maybe God and Al just weren’t on the same wavelengths at the same time(s). On different timelines, and as such, they just flat couldn’t understand each other.
This is where my Monday started…
After watching, I realized I’ve seen this video before, but this is prolly the best quality video I’ve seen of it. Kinda strange that the object appears black for most of the vid, but the silver can be seen on the top left of the object as the airplane moves past and the object moves out of view. Looks like a balloon to me, so, I stated as much.
More than that, I started doing some digging to see if I could see what the average high-altitude wind speeds are like down in Colombia, and I found something really REALLY interesting.
(BTW, don't you just absolutely love intensifiers? Aren't they really REALLY cool?)
In that document, I saw reference to the afforementioned “really REALLY interesting” something.
BiPAM...Biotic Pump of Atmospheric Moisture.
Now, where my mind was when watching the UFO video above was thinking about the multiple dimensions of time that exist in a high-altitude environment as the winds move, shift and shear. But what that BiPAM thing got me to thinking about was something I hadn’t given a whole lot of thought to regarding why air moves…displacement.
Moisture moves in, air moves out.
Moisture moves out, air moves in.
Typically, convective activity is thought of as being the primary driver as to why air(s) move. Warm air rises, cool air descends, and when the two tangle, there’s all kinds of eddys and other crazy movement(s) of air in the sky. But what we’re talking about here is the movement generated when one gas displaces another gas. Liquid water evaporates, and as it rises, it displaces gases in the atmosphere causing the atmosphere to move.
Something else that caught my eye in the tweet/tweet comments was the vagary of the alleged place of occurrence…Colombia. The name, Colombia, is potentially vague.
If one takes homophones into consideration, and also considers bad spelling, it gets even more muddy.
Seems nitpicky, yeah?
Welp, your opposition is gonna be nitpicky as fuck. They are gonna slice and dice and nitpick the living shit out of anything and everything, so, why are you not nitpicky on yourself? Maybe think of it like training for a marathon or something. If you are nitpicky on your own shiz, others are gonna be nitpicky for you. And you don’t want that, now do ya?
Do you have any idea what “roll-rate” is? Me either. I think it has something to do with how many doobies a fella or lady can roll in an hour. But in the event I’m wrong about that, lets see if there are any aircraft out there other than the Douglas A-4 Skyhawk, Northrop T-38 Talon, Extra 300 or Sukhoi Su-31 that can achieve a roll-rate @ or above 720° per second.
Oh, and in this video that follows, pay particular attention to the aircraft just after take-off when he starts rolling the plane. See if you can count the number of rotations whilst watching the timer on the video to see how many times he’s rolling per second.
One thousand one.
Just to give an idea of what a 720° roll-rate means, that means by the time you read that, two full revolutions occurred. That’s pretty fucking fast. Doing two complete revolutions in a single second?
I flew an aerobatic plane that had close to 360° per second when rolling in the direction of the propeller spin, and about 270° per second when rolling against the propeller spin…not as fast as the planes above, but still pretty fast. Especially when it’s your ass that is actually strapped in the plane.
I’ll not go into the dynamics of why a plane might roll faster with the prop rotation rather than against, but you are likely wondering why in the hell I’m talking about roll rate. Welp, if you just so happened to read that tweet above about the UFO sighted from the cockpit, and then you watched the video that I posted in response showing an airplane passing near a weather balloon and what the encounter looked like from the perspective of the balloon, you might just notice that the gondola thing hanging off the balloon which carries the camera, is spinning. In one shot, you see the plane approaching, the camera turns and the airplane leaves the frame as it roars the fuck by, and a few seconds elapse until the airplane comes back into frame and it is already well downrange.
The question that I asked myself is, can we interpolate as to how far the airplane is away from the balloon when we first start to hear it, and how much distance the airplane covers between the time that it leaves the view/returns to the view. At this point, you may be asking yourself a question…
Q: DUDE!!! Why in the FUCK do you care how much distance is covered by the plane when it is out of view?!?!? The fucking video has the speed of the aircraft right the hell on the video screen!!!!!
A: Oh rly?
Lemme ask you a question…
Q: Is that readout of the aircraft speed groundspeed? Airspeed? Indicated? Actual? Calibrated? True? Is it radar data? GPS data? From the aircraft? From a ground station? From some 3rd party estimation? Is it an amalgamation/average of multiple sources? If so, which?
Was the video creator able to get telemetry data from some flight following service, and if so, what does that 402kts/462mph @ 38,000 feet really mean?
Speed over the ground <> speed through the air.
Speed through the air <> actual speed through the air
140kts @ 5,000 feet MSL <> 140kts @ 35,000 feet MSL
We are afterall talking about things which are moving relative to each other. The balloon is moving between 30 and 40+ miles per hour relative to an airplane that is moving 400+ miles per hour, both objects are subject to the wind(s) but not necessarily the same exact winds, so in order to better understand how and why things move as they do, we need to at least somewhat understand these environments that they are moving in.
One last thought on that, our atmosphere is basically a planet in and of itself that is surrounding and circling another planet made of rock/dirt/water/etc.. Like water, air is a fluid, and its movement can be janky af and moving all kinds of different directions in a relatively small space. An object, subject to the wind (like a balloon) may make a sudden and erratic appearing move because of some something in the atmosphere acting upon it. An updraft, a downdraft, some swirling eddy or vortex of air where cool and warm air have suddenly met up and decided to tango, some mass of invisible moisture moving through, no telling what is actually going on in that space around our object.
Also, I think it important to point out that unless a UFO or extraterrestrial craft is somehow suspending the laws of physics at all times and at all attitudes and at all altitudes, I think it highly likely that high-altitude UFOs are likely to behave differently than low-altitude UFOs if for no other reasons than the density or the air and/or how the wind currents change as altitude changes. A craft suddenly going mach 20 at a coupla thousand feet or below is prolly gonna start generating lightning bolts, thunder, then instantly burst into flames because of the friction with the air, but at high-altitudes it might take a few before it started to glow and then eventually burst into flames.
Just some stuff to think about is all.
You will have had to have watched the preceding video in order to somewhat understand the references above.
Delta-winged aircraft notwithstanding, I’ve been under the impression for quite some time that triangle-shaped and/or “pyramid” shaped UFOs were quite commonplace. Cigar, saucer, triangle, and on very rare occasions, globular…that’s pretty much it as far as UFO shapes go. There’s that new-ish “tic tac” thing, but even that is still pretty much cigar shaped.
So yeah, new nomenclature on an existing something.
UFO sightings have jumped during the last year…probably because of the pandemic?
Um…the previous video opened with that statement, and they did so with some embedded type of knowing as if one explained the other. People don’t look up even when they are allowed to go outside. How in the hell do they figure people are now looking up when they are unlikely to even go outside or when they can’t go outside, and are especially unlikely to go outside during those times when UFOs are most likely to be seen; i.e. night.
I'm gonna be scratching my head on that one for a while.
UFO sightings have jumped during the last year, probably because of the pandemic. I honestly do not see what one has to do with the other. ‘Cept maybe people are bored at home and just making shit up since they don’t have anything better to do.
Or of course a concerted effort on the part of certain interests in order to provide a distraction or diversion from um…other stuff.
A drop of blood leaves your heart.
It then heads to your anus, circles your anus, then returns to your heart.
Your heart smells like ass.
Or, fart...your heart smells like fart.
On the upside, your downside smells like heart.
All you witchy and warlocky and other mystical types need feedback I imagine. You need to gather intelligence to ensure that your spells, hexes, curses, blessings, etc. work, right?
Is that what crystal balls, familiars and the like are for? Gathering intelligence? Or do you rely solely upon human intelligence from colleagues, customers, patrons, toadies, etc., and basically have your own spy networks. And whilst we are entertaining goofy questions, what happens in the event of a misfire, stray round, bad intelligence/coordinates or even a some defect in the payload?
You prolly have some token from the target, a book or shirt or lock of hair or used snot rag or whatever, you fire off your spell, but what if there is some unseen dynamic that causes the spell to go completely off course and nail someone unintended. Some bystander gets whacked with 7 years bad luck, or their dick falls off, get cervical cancer, go blind, hair falls out, lose their job, a piano falls on them, their plane crashes or whatever…do you just chalk it up to “well, I missed the target, but the person that got zapped was probably guilty of something, so, meh, no biggie.”?
Guessing that you now need to fire off another round since you missed the target the first time.
Ever heard of carpet bombing? Might look into that. It’s messy as fuck, unlikely you’ll actually hit the target unless you get lucky, but you’ll possibly at least take out something that was important to the target. Maybe something they cared about. The downside is tho, now you’ve got a war on your hands.
Something really weird about witchcraft is that I don’t recall ever hearing about something like “an all-hearing ear”, or “all smelling-nose” or “all-touching finger”, or even an “all-thinking brain”. Sure the “all-seeing eye” is quite famous, but why doesn’t that thing come with some headphones so ye can hear what’s being said. Or at least come with some subtitles functionality. Watching a silent movie ain’t gonna do you much good unless you’re just looking for craters in a post action photo-reconnaissance/bomb damage assessment kind of way. Prior to action, just seems like you’d want more than “sight” based things in order to more accurately carry out your mission. If you aren’t the best at lip reading, you might have a really clever target mouthing “elephant stew” over and over again to throw you off. And also, we’re currently living in a time when face-masks are all the rage, so how the hell you gonna know what your target is saying?
Another thing that I wonder is how exactly is it that “witchcraft” figures it can remain more or less neutral, as if it is somehow outside the bounds of anyone and anything else. It could be argued that witchcraft is basically the equivalent of a weapons manufacturer, you sell your shit to warring parties, they shoot the shit out of each other, and you do have at least some culpability. But in witchcraft, the practitioner takes more of an active role in the delivery of these weapons. Kinda like a weapons manufacture that is also a mercenary/soldier for hire. Sure you have no ideological attachments to this specific conflict, but you are participating in it. Which, that brings up one of another two points I just thought of.
1 – you actually do have a vested interest in the conflict. You have a vested interest in all conflicts, otherwise, you wouldn’t be practicing the arts you are. There is some reason and/or reasons as to why you are hiring out your services
2 – where is the oversight regarding your actions? Surely even the most practiced and senior of magical types, themselves, have a someone that is senior to them. I don’t give a shit if you have to stumble through the list of every angel, demon, imp, god, goddess or other deity both known and unknown …you… answer to someone. So, who is it, and how far to the allow you to stray before they give you a smack? Or I guess in some cases, the further you stray, the greater your reward might be.
Sure…I get it…your weapons have peaceful and practical applications too. Humanitarian types of stuff. Stuff that is beautiful or uplifing. I guess this is how you justify the art. You figure that you somehow remain more or less being beyond prosecution for your role(s) in conflict that results in damages/loss. Prolly why persecution of witches or practitioners of magic/magick/majick or whatever is so prevalent throughout history. Nobody likes someone else having all that power. They want it for themselves. Eliminate the middlemen / middlewomen / middlewhomever, and nothing stands in the way of your getting everything for yourself.
Q: Is this why supernatural folk or supernatural entities or whatever always seem to hang their hats way the fuck out in the fringes?
A: ó?¿? ó
Swamps, caves, gnarly parts of some gloomy forest, high places, low places, dangerous place, anything remote as fuck and/or hella difficult to get to.
Any idea why, The Pope, of all people, would be for… a totalitarian regime?
Would be for… systems, infrastructures and procedures that would lead to a one-world government?
Would be for… anything that put all power into the hands of a single entity?
Yeah, I can't figure it out either.
I’m completely baffled. Nothing at all indicating any leanings towards any such thing. I’m stumped.
Maybe you can figure it out.
You Ufologists are gonna be in deep shit when and if personal automated aerial-vehicle transport becomes a thing. Imagine a good chunk of current automotive traffic suddenly filling the skies because everyone has traded in their cars for some air-transport something.
lolz...what a mess.
You UFO chasers will never see another UFO ever again. Not a “real” one anyway.
*Gotta attract and keep a congregation, Clicky. Certainly sounds like the Media are peddling a religious cult of science to me…*
If you have any questions or astute observations to make from today’s missive, Dear Reader, please feel free to use the comment section below. We can’t promise you any answers, though you will get a reply 😉 Have a Song…
*Nice! Good choice of Song to start, Clicky…*
Dear Reader, I had a dream this week in which Cade Fon Apollyon told me something. Something important…
*Oh shit! That was the soundtrack to that dream, Clicky… /lights up and smokes… I woke up humming it…*
*Phil opines? …/taps ash… Who’da thunk it?*
… What I didn’t do at the time, something that I always do, was to visit Etymology Online to find out if ‘lucuna’ had a meaning and how its root had developed in time…
“blank or missing portion in a manuscript,” 1660s, from Latin lacuna “hole, pit,” figuratively “a gap, void, want,” diminutive of lacus “pond, lake; hollow, opening” (see lake (n.1)). The Latin plural is lacunae. The word has also been used in English from c. 1700 in the literal Latin sense in anatomy, zoology, botany. The adjectival forms have somewhat sorted themselves: Mathematics tends to use lacunary (1857), natural history lacunose (1816), and lacunar (n.) is used in architecture of paneled ceilings (1690s), so called for their sunken compartments. Leaving lacunal (1846) for the manuscript sense.
*Sign language? Interesting – I think of synchromysticism as sign language for the def…*
… Then yesterday, a new missive arrived in my inbox! No. #168, one that Cade wrote on the 13th January 2021, but only sent yesterday. He explained his reason for the delay, butt I shall not divulge it here…
*’Cos it’s no one’s fuckin’ bidness, butt his own, Clicky…*
… Four missives from the Okie Text US Devil have been posted at the LoL in meantime, however…
… Doo go take a look. Or not. As always, Dear Reader, that decision is entirely up to you. Now here is Cade’s lacuna missive.
Greetings fellow humans, humanoids, and other assorted entities residing in gravity. My name is Cade F.O.N Apollyon, and I would like to welcome you to this edition of “Missive From ‘Merica”. My co-hosts are RooBeeDoo, her assistant Clicky, and by the time you read this they have likely formatted and polished this particular writing of mine to a high shine.
You should know from the start here that I have made a decision to take the writing in a different direction today, as it would appear that some consider my writing as terse. Acerbic. Vulgar. Dirty. Offensive. Racist. Misogynistic. Disrespectful. Blasphemous. Too forward or too direct. Too cluttered, disorganized and sloppy. Too happy-go-lucky and freewheeling. Too loosey-goosey with the rules. Too non-standard, abstract and misty. Too vague. Too distant and nonsensical and even pointless. Too…
For your own personal peace of mind, I would like to remedy this. All of it.
With that in mind, I, today, shall take my first baby-steps into a new world. No longer shall I endeavor to write in such a way as to inspire you to think with your own mind and leave you with your own thoughts to make your own decisions; I shall now strive to dictate your thoughts and your thinking for you. I will strive to find all your answers for you, and then deliver them to you. I shall strive to add my own voice to that of the echo chamber. I shall join the resonant drone so as to add more power to the socially acceptable mantra(s). Perhaps my finally joining the throng will be the straw that breaks the camel’s back, and this whole mess will, finally, and completely, self-destruct.
Thank you for putting me on the path. Thank you for showing me the light. Thank you for saving me from myself for your own benefit.

Last night’s dream was terrible. I could get nothing right. Everything I did was wrong: was clumsy, was awkward, everything I touched ended in complete disaster. The worst part about the dream though? I remembered it when I awoke. I already get everything wrong in my waking life. ‘Tis a shame that I am now getting it wrong in my dreams.
No stranger to dreams here. Dreams are a regular part of my life, dreaming is a regular and frequent occurrence, and they are always strange in that they always seem to be completely detached from reality. There are very real things in them sure, but they always, I mean always, take a strange turn that is so completely unexpected that the reality within the dream is shattered.
I have been dreaming every night, without fail, ever since around July/August of 2019. The thing is, I’ve started to not remember my dreams very much, which is highly unusual for me personally.
Alas, I must bail out of this section. I must digress and write something else.
I was going to regale you, the reader, with the all of the details and specifics of last night’s dream, but I have completely lost my nerve. My shyness has kicked in, self-preservation mode has been activated, I’ve lost my train of thought, and I’m far too fearful at this point to share my dream with you for fear of being thought of as a complete freak. My courage has left me.

Should dance be considered a martial art? Strange question, but I must ask it. It would help some if you, the reader, has an understanding of what a martial art is.
Martial arts are codified systems and traditions of combat practiced for a number of reasons such as self-defense; military and law enforcement applications; competition; physical, mental, and spiritual development; entertainment; and the preservation of a nation’s intangible cultural heritage.
Disarming. Dance, dances and dancing are disarming. There are a great many people, in the world, right now, doing dances, in order to disarm people. Making an effort to get the masses to drop their guard or lower their weapons. Molding the hearts and minds of individuals, in the moment, so as to get them to behave in a way that is more conducive to that which suits the dancer’s purpose. And that is the purpose of the dance: to focus a certain specific energy in a certain specific direction.
Typically, I’d think a dancer would want anyone watching to be pleased. Sure, the dancer wants to express themselves, and dance is the art form they’ve chosen as a medium for this expression, but they are going to want others to like their efforts. They are going to want to be accepted and garner approval from others. They are going to want to know that their time in learning to dance has been well spent. The audience has fallen under your spell, and will now behave according to your wishes.
With that, I must question that which is a martial art, which is typically not considered a martial art. Question those things that allow an individual to command and control a situation. Why? I’ve began to ponder the idea that if dance can be considered a martial art, so too can theatre. So now I must question the nature of theatre. I must question my preconceived notions about what is and is not theatre.
Is a street performance to be construed as theatre? Is a public gathering to be considered a street performance?
Is a riot to be considered a street performance?
Is giving a briefing outside of 10 Downing Street to be considered a street performance?
Is “a mass shooting” to be considered a street performance?
Is a reporter reporting from the site of some event to be considered a street performance?
Is all of that theatre? Is any of it?
Is the point of theatre to titillate, excite and entertain? To rouse and/or stir emotion(s) in their audience? Furthermore, is it the point of the theatre company and players to swing these emotions for their own benefit? What does the audience get in return, and do they get their money’s worth?
Is that what this is all about? Money?
Oh my, that does not look like writing that is going to please an audience. I am putting entirely too much pressure on the reader’s shoulders. I should be giving answers instead of asking questions.
Pardon me whilst I digress to a something that maybe I can hold a thought on.

Not being fond of being told what to do, there are only two possibilities…
Uno: The person telling me what to do knows how to do what they want done, but they see the task as beneath them and they have better things to do anyway, so they farm the work out.
Dos: The person telling me what to do does not know how to do what they want done, so they farm the work out to someone else in the hopes that this other individual can figure it out.
If número uno is the case, and the person you unload the work on does not yet know how to accomplish the task, I have to consider exclusivity and mentoring factors. Does the assignor assist in the task? Or are they throwing the assignee to the wolves.
If número dos is the case, and the person you unload the work on does not yet know how to accomplish the task, you now have not one person who doesn’t know how to do a something, but two. I have to think about how many more “non knowing” individuals may be drawn into this endeavor in order to complete the task.
What I am thinking about here is the nature of enterprise. What lifts up, and what pushes down? And I must, must, consider time.
If someone assigns me the task of completing and proving the GUT (Grand Unified Theory), is it a something that can actually be done? Are we humans actually capable of both understanding and explaining the Universe in its totality?
Or is this just a time sinkhole meant to keep me occupied whilst others go off and do their own thing? A distraction in which the assignors have no real investment in the dangerous aspects seeing as how I am the one who will fail, hence all blame will rest upon my shoulders. I am inept, not the theory.
To be completely truthful, I, most of the time, do not have a problem with being told what to do. In fact, I tend to operate best in environments where I am told what to do. If I have to be self-reliant in dreaming up work for myself, I am most certainly going to be out in the fringes working on abstract things that others are likely to deem to far too distant to be relevant within the current time-frame. Leave me to my own devices, and the realms of the negligible is where you’ll find me. Splashing along the shoreline in the waters upon the far shores. The long odds. The impossible. The unknowable.
In order to be understood, I want, and perhaps need, another to tell me what to do.

We are only just now starting to see a lot of things in our world. Things that have existed for very long times, we perhaps have heard of them, but they so stretched the imagination that we could not comprehend that such things were possible. As such, we relegate these thing to the world(s) of myth and legend. Fantasy. Tall tales. Some real something that has been so embellished upon that it doesn’t actually exist, and certainly is not as advertised.
Not so anymore.
We can fire up our own personal communication devices of all kinds, and know almost instantly what is transpiring anywhere in the world. We can also know things that are happening in our solar system, in our galaxy, and even around the Universe. Perhaps not so timely with those last three, but we can certainly know more, and quicker, than at any point in our known history. We can be told, by others, what is going on, where, and maybe even why this something is happening.
I wonder sometimes how well you yourself interpolate information. Not interpret – interpolate. Although the two do share some concepts, there is a difference between the two. Alas, because of my new paradigm, I can no longer provide links to definitions for your consideration. I guess I am, again, gonna have to digress, and you’re just gonna have to do all the legwork yourself if you wanna figure out where I was going with all of this.

With everyone being sick and tired of lockdown, one thing that it has achieved, which most may not think about, is that transmission by hand has almost certainly been curtailed. And I’m not talking about transmission of disease(s) by hand either, I’m talking about the transmission of data and information by hand.
Perhaps give a few short moments to consider the last time you saw anything at all via the press about any “terrorist” anything.
This is supposedly how most terrorist groups transfer their information…by hand. Circumvents all those electronic snoopers that have gotten so damn good at monitoring anything and everything. I’d imagine that lockdown has made any “terrorist” organization(s) have to rethink their information channels and adapt. And this lockdown has likely also changed the dynamics of leakers and how they operate. You may be able to still grab sensitive or classified info, but getting the info elsewhere on some physical media just got really difficult.
I’m sure lockdown has had the effect of giving surveillance networks some really unique insight as to how data moves/is moving when they have more or less of a monopoly on the information channels.
I just started to re-read that section and have noticed that I am, yet again, slipping right back into my old writing style. Putting that comfortable clothing on. Returning to my natural ragamuffin state.
Learning to express yourself in a way that is pleasing to others is rough.

Sick … and tired … of lockdown. The cure is the sickness.
I will be seeing you around.
