just another gun rant

I never cared to be told what to do.  My earliest recollections concerning authority figures was ignoring them.  As time went on, and I listened to what they were saying, my attitudes toward authority ranged from ambivalence to disobedience with healthy measures of defiance and anger.  I was the angry young man and I wore that label as a badge of honor.

As my life progressed, I learned to navigate the icy waters of modern society with tools like compromise, duty, empathy, and understanding different viewpoints.  I guess I got tired of rocking the boat and fighting over petty bullshit and settled for playing the game, no matter how stupid it was, with the knowledge that I was still right unless logic and reason changed my mind.  The dictionary term was liberal and I was that to the point of libertine.

I don't think of myself as a liberal anymore.  The people who took over that term are far from free thinkers and lovers of freedom but authority worshipers with a disdain for rational thought.  Liberal went from individual freedom for all to slavery to the nanny state.  I could never align myself with the political liberals of today anymore than I can enjoy the rest of my life in prison.  Talk to a liberal sometime.  They all follow the leader and are just as easy to control as one dog can control a herd of sheep.  Thoughtless, mindless, dumbed down zombies waiting for the mailman to bring their government checks and believe anything their puppet masters tell them without question.  The liberals who actually make money think they can solve the worlds problems by inviting starving, poor people to their table for dinner and feel satisfaction that they did something.  

Then there are conservatives.  Republicans..... I used to spot republicans on the street as easy as spotting a toupee.  They had a certain vibe about them that yelled stuffed shirt authority.  These are the guys who hold the belief that they worked hard, overcame obstacles, and made it on their own, and so should you.  No nanny state for them and they hated how their taxes went to support generations of people who refused to work.  They wore blue collars (Archie Bunker) and white collars (Donald Trump) and their stick-up-their-ass attitudes made me sick.  Conservatives encapsulated all that was wrong and boring in the world.  When I think conservative, my mind flashes pictures of Nixon.  Conservatives, after a sumptuous meal, will let a few starving, poor people finish off the table scraps... in another room.

I differ from both these groups in ways they'll never understand.  I value my freedom as equal only to my sense of self preservation.  I know true freedom is also the freedom to starve to death and I accepted that long ago.  I'd rather die a free man than to live as a slave in comfort.  I could be wrong but I tend to believe the starving poor don't want to eat at anyone's table.  I'd much rather dine at the table of the starving poor in their own home, if they don't mind me bringing dessert.  

Blue collar and white collar are the two working groups in this country, just as bogus as democrats and republicans.  It's always a choice of two opposite points of view in a constant cycle of problem-solution-resolution with just enough compromise to barely satisfy the majority.  I had no problem choosing sides and stood with my union brothers and sisters on picket lines and filed countless grievances for the company slaves.  Going toe to toe with authority, beating them into submission with the contract, and transforming their work slaves into free individuals, by showing them how to stand up and fight for their rights, was my mission.  We transformed the work place from a slave plantation to an operation full of pride, brotherhood, and a refusal to take company shit anymore.  Once the company got the message and played by the rules, business improved, profits increased, wages went up, and everyone was happy.

Unlike a union contract, which comes up for negotiation every couple of years, we have the constitution, designed as a permanent, unalterable contract between the federal government and the people, which clearly states what the government can and can't do.  It also spells out quite clearly and specifically, the rights and privileges of all men, and no government can alter these carved in stone rights.  The rights are simple.  I'll say what I want, I'll defend myself when attacked, get off my land, don't fuck with me for no reason, and the president has to be a natural born citizen.  The liberals invalidated that last one and it was around that time I started to pay attention to these walking dead, owl worshiping, pseudo-intellectual, vegan whores of stupidity. 

My skin crawls when I think of these self proclaimed authority figures telling me how to live.  They're not rich, they're not politicians, there's nothing special about them except they think their president is the reincarnation of Jesus and they're his disciples, pall parroting the chosen one, without the slightest idea what he's talking about.  Hope and change for the first time in their short, putrid lives.      

The merger of big government and big business was a match made in heaven... for them.  Big business relies on the consumer to improve their bottom line and Washington makes laws to keep it all going.  Constantly increasing taxes is nothing more than a government control game they play.  Who gets all those tax dollars is another story but it's not about getting the money as much as punishing the citizens as an ongoing exercise in control.  The big business/government merger is loaded with advantages neither had before.  Government can borrow some tricks from big business like product placement and repetition.  The lapdog liberal media does whatever it's told and, just like TV ads, bombards the masses with a never ending, programmed assault, complete with fake, bluescreen, Hollywood movie-type news feeds,and actor eyewitnesses, until the masses believe the fantasy.  Name three, never ending, noteworthy, bill passing events of 2012 and I'll bet they all feature an AR-15 "assault" rifle with a hundred round "clip" that should be banned because it scares the crap out of most liberals.  Just my opinion, but I'm pretty sure these three "mass murders" were scripted, staged events and carried out by people on the US government payroll.  The AR-15 is nothing more than the product they chose for their market research to test the waters.  How many different Sandy Hooks did you hear about last year?  Product placement... repetition... These are business strategies developed in the last century to sell cigarettes, toothpaste, and Tang.  Now, they want to sell you something else.  Gun control.  And the brain dead masses are starting to buy it with the same religious zealotry as global warming and voting for O'bummer.   
And herein lies the rub.  Convince the people to give away their rights and they will lose them forever.  No do-overs.  No government wants the citizenry to have any rights.  The only thing preventing the government from total despotism is the constitution and believing it's meaning.  That, and a nation of 300 million citizens with twice that many guns at their disposal and no way of knowing who has em.  Ask any Texan why everyone is so polite in Texas.  It's because you don't know who's packing.
As much as I despise republicans, they stick to their guns.  I don't know one republican who wants a gun ban but I know plenty of liberals who do and the words they choose are identical to the crap I hear from the liberal,  MSM, talking heads.  As if they gave up thinking for mimicking those smarter than themselves.  The reality is, they're all as dumb as a sack of hammers. 

Most liberals by now know we won't give up our guns so they came up with a compromise.  A new law (as if we don't have enough already) requiring background checks to make sure the bad guys can't buy one.  I heard a liperal on the radio today explaining how this brainstorm of a plan will work.  He said criminals won't buy one if they have to be checked so the only place they can go is the underground market and those gun prices are at least three times higher and before long, the bad guys won't have any guns because they cost too much and there won't be enough to go around.
Is that the way most liberals think?  I mean, OMFG!  I know retarded people who can punch holes in that theory, and they expect average Americans to buy this load of horse shit?  Really?  Really?  REALLY??? 

After Bush shredding the constitution, followed by O'bummer to finish us off, it seems the 2nd amendment is the only advantage we have left and the only thing keeping Uncle Sam from going postal on our asses.
So, who's pushing this anti-gun, carbon footprint, save the children, save the planet, save the oil, lunatics who can't tell the difference between freedom of choice and freedom from choice, agenda?
Do I have to say it?
I'll give you a hint.  These are the people who have been asking the same stupid question for months.  "Why would anyone need an assault rifle with a hundred round magazine?"  To which my answer is... Why does anyone want a corvette?  Why would anyone want to go out for dinner?  Why would anyone want to look at porn?  Because it's rock n roll fun, you liberal asshole!  Go listen to some folk music, hippy, and stay out of politics.

Look, I know some of you out there are liberals.  Some are republicans.  Who's kiddin who?  There's a cross section of humanity representing every race and religion on the planet reading this and I truly respect every one of you and I'll stand up and defend your right to say or do anything you want with every fiber of my being.  I may disagree with you but I'll still fight for your rights.

That said, I'll make you a deal.  I won't push for laws forcing you to unwillingly carry a gun if you don't push for laws to limit what little freedoms I have left.  Deal?

orgonite self improvement

I was talking with my neighbor about the relationship between manifestation and the alpha brain waves produced when in a meditative state.  We threw things back and forth about karmic rules and limits and the subject of self curing came up.  She believes only exercise and proper nutrition can burn fat, increase muscle tone, and cure disease, while I feel the same results can be achieved through a properly placed intent.  After all, our personal bodies are closer to home than anything else and if a simple intent can get my asshole of a boss to find another job, self improvement should be a walk in the park.

Australian Psychologist Alan Richardson made a little experiment. He took a group of basketball players, divided them in 3 groups and tested each player’s ability to make free throws.  The first group would practice 20 minutes every day.  The second would only visualize themselves making free throws, but no real practice was allowed.  The third one would not practice or visualize.
The results were astounding. There was significant improvement on the group that only visualized; they were almost as good as the guys who actually practiced.

But what about making an intent without visualization?  Could a simple request manifest reality without constant mental gymnastics to make it so?  Can a well placed intention work like switching on a program and let it run on it's own in the background?  I decided to find out.

The next day, I held my hands in Jupiter 2's orgone energy field and made the intent to lose thirty pounds and increase positive health.  I've maintained a consistent 200 lbs for the last 15 years and figured any weight loss should indicate success.  

That was two months ago and I forgot the intent as soon as I made it.  I didn't attempt to adjust any part of my lifestyle and went through life as I always had with constant snacking between semi-regular meals and a total lack of conventional exercise.  A lifetime of using my body as a tool, working with hot steel, cold concrete, and horrible outdoor weather conditions left me with a train wreck of a lower back and chiropractors as my primary physicians, with the majority of my work days spent in the vertical position.
Only when I bent over to pick up my pen did I realize I had a freedom of movement I haven't felt in years.  No pressure or back pain no matter how many times I bent at the waist.  It wasn't until I started getting compliments from acquaintances about my appearance that got me to look into this.  

It wasn't the flexibility of my lower back as much as the lack of restriction and I realized the layers of accumulated fat between my abdominal muscles and internal organs must have reduced while I wasn't looking.   Picture a bathroom door where the door knob hits the wall when you open it.  Put a basketball behind the door and it puts pressure on the hinges, just as easily as a lever can let you lift a car.  Now I know what my chiropractor meant when he suggested I lose a few pounds.  It wasn't the extra weight but the restriction it had on my lower back hinge.

I thought about this and remembered the original intent I made months ago.  I was shocked to discover I lost 20 lbs and looked at my diet for some answers.  Pizza, stromboli, calzone, BBQ ribs, Italian meats and cheese, kielbossi, cheeseburgers, ice cream, Chinese buffets, rum, fried chicken, custard pies, and the occasional cake, were all consumed in abundance with my appetites dictating the next meal.  My all day, in-between meal snacks consisted of dried Italian meats, celery, raw cabbage, olives, smoked kielbossi, ham, and just about any kind of finger food I could fit in a container with lots of sea salt.  Let's just say my appetites were in a constant state of abundant satisfaction.

The only thing different from the intent I made two months ago was the addition of two nutrients, magnesium oxide and green coffee extract, in doses too low to make this kind of impact in such a short period of time.  Even finding these nutrients and the compulsion to try them falls within the time frame of the original intent, as if being guided in that direction.  All I know is, each day I stand naked in front of the full length mirror reinforces the idea that something dramatic is going on and it's not a conscientious effort.  It's not just the loss of restrictive fat with increased mobility but a feeling of full body improvement on a daily basis.  I feel taller, quicker, and mentally sharper than before and I can't help thinking if a simple request can bring these kinds of results, how hard can it be to re-write DNA to eliminate all disease?

Can it be that simple?

absinthe experiment #1

It's one thing to theorize about how absinthe can release inhibitions and another to prove it through experimentation.  What better way than to gather a group of unsuspecting drinkers for an absinthe party and study the results?

I never intended to use this gathering of people as test subjects and I never considered studying the results, which makes this experiment all the more credible because I had no preconceived notions as to what to expect.  It was simply a party with a case of absinthe as the offered drink, followed up by inputs and observations from the people in attendance.  Not everyone was drinking absinthe, which made the absinthe abstainers serve as a base-line average to compare with those who invoked the green fairy.  The results were interesting, to say the least.

The absinthe was produced using the original Pernod recipe with the addition of a larger quantity of wormwood, giving it a higher thujone count than even Czech absinthe.  The proof was 160, reduced to 45 to 50 proof by addition of ice water, which made the alcohol content equivalent to a stiff highball.  The primary difference was the selection of herbs.
The day after, I was told there was some extremely stupid talk from the absinthe drinkers that could only come from a total lack of social filtering.  I've been to countless parties fueled by booze of every variety and found myself in situations where massive quantities of alcohol washed away all inhibitions but I've never seen a collective transformation this dramatic in such a short time.  I won't give all the details of what happened that night because there are some things best left unmentioned and I'm pretty sure I know more about what happened and everyone else just has only a few bits and pieces.  I noticed only those who drank the absinthe dropped the walls of conventionality and took all the craziness in stride.  Only the wine, whiskey, and rum drinkers, the baseline average, found offense to such extreme, unbridled openness.

This experience got me thinking about cabaret life in the good ol' absinthe days when all those uninhibited artists, writers, can-can dancers, and ordinary people got together to wallow in unrestrained freedom.  Under such conditions, everyone's true self emerged and no one cast judgement.  Social restraints were put aside and unconventionality was the norm.  No wonder the world changed.

Our politically correct 21st century has conditioned us to be something we're not.  Homemakers became domestic engineers, garbage collectors became sanitary specialists, and people with handicaps became handiable and it was all taken as a big joke.  When personnel directors became human resource managers I could see where all of this was heading.  We came to believe our made up titles that gave us a fake feeling of pride that defined us as what we do as opposed to who we are.  Individual thought is replaced by group think and speaking your mind is acceptable as long as it falls within the guidelines of PC.  We went from crime, to hate crime, to hate speech, and thought crime is in the works.  Our social PC conditioning is so successful we almost lost the capacity for rational thought and have to look over our shoulders before telling a joke that might offend someone.  Male and female co-workers are forced to treat each other as androgynous or lose their job from a mis-read compliment.  We're no longer individuals but just another resource to be replaced as easily as changing a light bulb and the threat of poverty keeps us in line.

This careful conditioning succeeded in creating in each of us a social personality acceptable to be shown in public.  A facade personality with a set of fake values and fake thought processes constructed by you with elements of your personality that falls within the strict guidelines of the newly established norms of conditioned society.  Our original personality, formed by thoughts, emotions, and experiences of our personal lives, is still there as a running program but submerged and hidden from view, like the crazy uncle you keep locked in the basement.

The PC facade personality might say, "I'm not a racist."  While the original, submerged, core personality might say, "I'll never let my daughter marry a (insert race or national origin)."  Two diametrically opposed statements, equally valid and believed as truth, from the same person.  Hmmmm.... Sounds a little like multiple personality disorder to me.  George Orwell might call it double-think.  Add some major trauma, like 911, and you could possibly compartmentalize these separate personalities to operate as master/slave hard drives on your computer.  Kinda smacks of MK ULTRA, don't it?

Anyway... It seems drinking absinthe has the unique ability to temporarily erase inhibitions, override our social programming,  release our submerged personalities, and expose our true self, free from social restraints.  Imagine a cabaret filled with artists, writers, royals, and commons swilling absinthe and partying like equals while the can-can dancers are flashing bare legs to the unbridled, cheering crowd as the band plays faster and louder.  Everyone is drinking absinthe and nothing is too bizarre for this crowd.  Sounds like some of the parties I participated in before everyone got so serious about everything.  

Keep in mind, the age of absinthe was the age of Freud and the belief that man's core personality was an irrational, violent brute bent on mob rule and self destruction and had to be controlled through psychoanalysis and conditioning.  Of course, Freud was an idiot but his ideas scared the hell out of the ruling class and absinthe was the monkey wrench in the machine and was soon outlawed.  Besides, man's nature isn't the brute Freud believed but a spiritual being with the capacity to grow, adapt, and recreate the universe at will.  It's this soul, this dormant personality that drives man to the stars.  It's also what distinguishes a free man, as opposed to a slave.

Judging from my limited observations, it appears absinthe not only lowers inhibitions but deconstructs social conditioning, eliminating guilt and its ugly handmaiden, shame.  Appropriate guilt can function as social glue, spurring one to make reparations for wrongs.  Excessive dwelling about one's failures, however, is a surefire recipe for resentment and depression.
Know anyone on meds for depression?

It's just my humble opinion, but I can't help thinking absinthe does the same as orgonite.  It wakes you up, frees your soul, and uncovers vistas you never knew existed.  Absinthe is much more than the sum of it's parts and the effect it has on human brain chemistry is nothing short of instant, fluid enlightenment.

Anyone up for a little experimentation?

going back to basics

My first attempt at making absinthe ended in putting the finish herbs of hyssop and melissa in the wrong container, resulting in a gallon of 150 proof green alcohol that tasted like fresh mowed hay.  Although I successfully created a rather fine absinthe by putting the finish herbs in the proper jar, I was still stuck with a gallon of green alcohol that was neither here nor there and not knowing what to do with it, decided to store it out if sight in quart jars and wait for inspiration.

Well, this Easter morning the inspiration struck and I decided to make a quart of cough syrup from the green fluid.  It suddenly occurred to me that before the FDA deemed natural medicines illegal, every cough syrup and cough drop contained Coltsfoot to suppress coughs.  I know where to find Coltsfoot but since it's too early in the season, I opted to use a combination of Comfrey and Yerba Santa to soak in the green, 150 proof solution for about a week.

The Yerba Santa has been used by native Americans to clear bronchial passages and to relieve asthma.  Smoking or drinking it in a tea works equally well, so infusing it in an alcohol based solution should be a no-brainer.  The Comfrey just seemed to stick to my hands as I was going through my herbs, searching for my bag of Coltsfoot.  I always knew Comfrey was good for skin problems, healing broken bones, and was primarily a topical medication but most herbalists don't recommend using it internally.   I figured Comfrey was the ingredient I needed and the fact that it stayed in my left hand while searching for something else only proved my higher self had already done my thinking for me.  Seems some research is in order.

"The FDA advises against taking Comfrey internally, due to the presence of trace amounts of pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PA's).  In contrast, data published in the journal, Science, by noted biochemist Bruce Ames, Ph.D., of U.C. Berkeley, would indicate that Comfrey taken internally is less toxic or carcinogenic than an equivalent amount of beer.  It is probably NOT wise to make Comfrey, or beer, a significant part of your regular diet for an extended period of time."

Call me a contrary, but if the FDA says the sky is blue I'll assume they're full of shit.  These are the same people who say 35mg of vitamin C is enough for a day and Prozac is harmless.  Besides, I drank enough beer in my life to send Scranton to rehab and beer isn't a significant part of my diet.  It'll take more than the opinions of a bunch of bureaucratic, big pharma whores to throw a wet blanket on my inspiration campfire.  The FDA mission statement is to ensure no natural substance shall have any credibility in the health care fields and they'd outlaw sunshine if they could get away with it.   I'll get my information from sources in the know, thank you very much.

A little more research revealed the ancient Greeks used Comfrey internally as a digestive aid and Pliny the Elder praised it's use.  At this point, I figured if a Greek can do it, I can do it.  As it turns out, the Greeks were only the first to document the medicinal qualities of this amazing plant.  Comfrey has been around for thousands of years as an internal as well as external curative and lots of guys through history, much smarter than the combined intelligence of the FDA, extolled the virtues of this marvelous plant.  If it's good enough for Culpeper, it's good enough for me.

Perhaps the reason there's such a tremendous increase of respiratory illnesses, as well as every other illness known to man, is because the only medications on the market come from a test tube as low grade poisons that only provide temporary symptom relief instead of curing the problem.

I'll perform a few clinical trials next week.

Stay tuned.
