Welcome to My World
I write about things that I find incredulous, that annoy or disturb rules of common sense and truth, or affront me, so much of today’s media and life is filled with lies, corruption, cheating and scamming, basically or categorically, involving Religion, Politics, the Human Interface and Sex. I call it the Trifecta of Corruption. The human interface relates to all three and when it is in conflict.
All three major topics are the things you were told not to talk about. Really? We still do, lets not kid ourselves and possibly the only way to stop talking about these things would be to remove the water cooler, coffee pots, town halls, TV's, and close all bars.
If you believe that you should not discuss any of these things then this is not the place for you. Thats why God made sand, a place to bury your head. Thats just called denial. And those who do bury their head expose another part of their anatomy for the world to see… not exactly putting your best face forward.
When you turn on the TV, pick up a paper, or cruise to the office coffee pot, thats a good part of what people talk about, sometimes thats all they talk about. I am a news junkie. I am also a researcher, slightly relentless, antagonistic, stubborn and I get to see this world very clearly and from varied viewpoints.
Thats the problem… who is delivering the news, what is the percentage of verifiable truth involved void of personal opinions, and usually with the talking heads, featuring guest paid assassins whose position is just as predictable. In Vegas thats a stacked deck. Vegas has a desert full of those who stacked the deck.
A large percentage of them simply regurgitate media drivel pushed to excess for ratings or brought live on the screen by some gal, preferably a drop dead good looking blonde with flowing fake tresses and with a dress cut barely one inch below her bikini cut, Ashley Bancroft inspired glasses, and a teleprompter.
Occasionally our man-caves, domiciles, trailers, condos, tents and lean-to’s need cleaning and for some reason I had the urge today to do the same on my website. Some stories are old news and many recent events have brought forth new ideas and new opinions, more importantly new facts and some old players posing as new, and some new players who are making headlines.
Rather than archive what was written, I have selected what the gist, or backbone of each of the following stories and have decided to lighten the load by writing each day what I see, hear believe or rack up as pure bovine excrement. I guess I’m going bloggish. The speed of news today and the shear tonnage of corruption is warranting this.
I TARGET POLITICIANS
When you are immersed in the political game carrying camera and notepad and get to meet these folks up front, backstage, off the camera, good and bad times, the light changes as we say in photography, and you make adjustments. You also get to see the real person. And I have to be honest, in the arena of the big lie, getting caught, thieving, cheating, lying and corruption, the GOP is winning hands down.
The birthers, deathers, obstructionists, prejuidistos, gerrymanderers, tea potters, statements about women causes, false statements on voter polls, anti-global warming, recent disclosures about Benghazi being a political hack job and bringing up the past are all hurting the common people, the lower and middle class, not those politicians.
Partisanship (misspelled as Partisan Shit) has created two decades of worthless Congressional effort and strife for the working class of Americans, cost us valuable prestige in the world and cultivated tremendous angst amongst our citizens. And it is going to cost us.
I TARGET TV EVANGELISTS
Thats what this section is about, exposing the second largest group of slime who seem to be slithering out of the vents just like in the movie "The Blob". Fake Politicos and Fake Religionists. Politicians are always claiming God is on their side, and the religious right is claiming they know who is the best God to lead this nation. Maybe they should read the constitution, something about Church and State. Which brings us to Religion and the era of the false prophet or is it profit?
The founding fathers came to this land because they couldn't worship the way they wanted to. Few religions are perfect. Only God is perfect, it’s man who screws things up and down through the ages. Sharia law and the Inquisition were and are equal opportunity killers and maimers. No preferences, believe as you wish but that didn’t last long…just google Witch Hunts… the Christian Church is just as guilty.
And today we have a strong right, passionate voice about this becoming the United States of Jesus. This country was based on religious freedom, not the "My God is better than your God thinking of many groups". The Horrible Fact is: "The Better God Syndrome" has resulted in the death of more people than any other man made philosophy in the world.
In national politics the winner is required to take an oath declaring to defend the constitution. Thus the order is Constitution or Country, God, Family and so forth. Somehow the Evangelical morphs this into God, then Country, Family. In a totalitarian society like the Taliban, Al Qaeda or ISIS, ISIL or Boko-Haram then it's their man-made distorted, convenient and not benevolent God, then the order is AK-47 is first and nothing else counts. Family means nothing as women have no rights anyway. Just like the way the some Republicans see things.
It's the separation of Church and State, the abortion changers, and folks like the Texas Evangelical School Board librarians that threaten the United States of America. Whether they call themselves evangelicals, patriots, Tea Pots or anything else, NO GROUP has the right to take anything away from anyone else regardless of the cause or the one they made up because of their man-made fabricated pointed hat bred spooky ritualistic religious beliefs.
I TARGET SEX OR NOT TO SEX & FOLLYWOOOD
If you try selling something today without sex in it. Good Luck. This isn't pushing GEICO, you buy GEICO because the law requires it. You buy AX to smell good because you want to copulate more often. That is the message thats sells in the products, they are called pheromone sales.
Even FOX NEWS sells sex, drop dead gorgeous women, peek-a-boo tops, the long haired tresses, short dresses, long legs and slightly short on thinking, long on tele-prompters. Few if any have degrees in Journalism, most in runway and hairstyling, stage makeup and breathing heavy.
A smaller segment is called the infidelity or Hollywood Reality section. Thats where we are compelled to hear about on at least three major channels all about who is "boffing" who! Or as in the case of Hollywood, the marriage of the week which will probably last a week, the pregnancy of the week, which will last nine months, or the ongoing Kardashian series, one who is married, another who is cohabiting on and off and Kim who is in and out of love and marriage as fast as the concubines of some fourth world countries. And the real man hero of the show winds up a changing gender type and I have to be upfront, interviewing some avid watchers honestly telling me he looks better as a woman than a man.
WHO ME? I’M JUST AN AVERAGE JOE
I graduated High School at 15 after being in the RA or rapid advance, skipping grades 2 and 8 because I’m self taught learning to read at a very early age. The main subject I got "A"s in was Truancy and Home room and with only an average education from the City College where I was challenged as the Captain of the Bad Spelling and Run-on sentence team.
I suffer from a speech defect called by many “Brought up in Brooklyn". To overcome this, I have been blessed with a good two-fingered Apple keyboard, a super loaded Mac Pro computer, a darn good spell checker most of the time accounting for a funky word inserted occasionally that I missed and a frickin morose sense of humor.
Brooklyn, N.Y. what stories as a kid...and they tell me thats how I write like a Brooklyn kid. Of the almost 6000 languages and dialects on the earth, "Brooklyn" is doing well. Expressions like "Doz Bums" and " Arrgh Jeeze" all owe their heritage to Crown Heights. Home of the Brooklyn Dodgers, Carl Furillo, Duke Snider, PeeWee Reese and their home Ebbet's field. Some were actually neighbors. I grew up on Montgomery Street, five blocks from the field and I had a five fingered pitchers glove because it was great in the outfield or just beyond the fences at Ebbet’s Field waiting for a ball which got you into a game free.
ZIP CODES, ZIP GUNS, ZIPPIDY DOO DAH
My "ALMAH MARTYR" G. W. Wingate High School, is responsible for the skills I have today which I learned from my English teacher. Her favorite paraphrase was "Jacobs to Detention”. Her hero was Shakespeare, and it did not amplify my reading skills. I always carried a good book in my schoolbag about something, airplanes, photography, chemistry and girls, I received more education reading in detention.
NOTE: George W. Wingate High School is now a defunct comprehensive high school in the Prospect - Lefferts Gardens neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. It opened in 1956 and was closed down in June 2004 due to poor academic performance. It was the first racially correct (that was the term) 50/50 black-white school in the United States.
I hated English, looking back, it was a mistake. Language skills are the carrier deck of communication and if my writing skills were equal to my thinking skills I would be flying F-18 Hornets. And had I paid attention in typing class, my two index fingers would not be a full half inch shorter than the others. Nevertheless, I made a few points in life, I got a lot of dates from the typing class, I was the envy of all the other boys who missed that opportunity.
I have learned to write in html and I can photograph in .jpg and RAW. I managed to fly as a PIC for 27 years, saved two planes while on fire, the passengers, and my buttocks on mechanical failures, and bouts with mother nature .
And after 29 years I successfully "mastered the TV remote" though I can't remember how I did that. I write five assorted blogs and created numerous websites and new words, so I wrote my own dictionaries for my new words.
You will see it here. THE JACOBS DICTIONARY
I remember the first tools I made at Wingate in the metal shop on my own and even today they still talk of the Jacobs Hubcap Remover, not sold in stores, available in Midnight Black Only.
You too can have a career in hubcap "restoration" for only $39.95. Make it back on your first job even if you only got the front ones! Comes complete with instructions for both domestic and foreign jobs.
BUT WAIT! Order now and we'll double the offer and send you my new book " Guide to the Great Bail Bondsmen of America".
THIS IS A NO BULL SH*T/NO SMOKE ZONE
I may see things differently than you, and this site is all about viewpoint, my viewpoint, I hold nothing back and owe no one. I welcome discussion, I am involved every day in think tanks with intelligent people who seek solutions. But you better have a sense of humor, as our politician do. They think everything is a joke.
I don't argue with idiotic slogans, immoral rhetoric, not the BS they taught on Fox Media by Glenn Beck (and others) on a chalkboard from a 1/2 term college dropout, former druggie, hyped with a morose sense of values with no credentials, or party lines written by morons on forums with anonymous names. If you have to hide your name and identity, how can I believe anything you say? How can you have believed Beck when he needs thirteen writers and producers to deliver that spittle. Another Morton Downey Jr. want a be.
And I like to draw comparisons. I once explained Washington as a Poker Tournament. Lots of bluffs, eye contact, playing with someone else's money and losers. Thats till you get to the final table, the cards are on the line and then you show your real hand. Yup, in Washington, in the sleeve, thats where the two aces were hidden. There are six in a deck, aren't there?
My unique logo represents No Bullsh*t/No Smoke "emblification". Go chase that word in your Funk and Wagnalls. So lets get a few things out of the way because it may take a while to get used to my sense of humor. I have no problem with communication, I speak in a very "sardastic", language. If you grew up in Brooklyn, you are both sarcastic and slightly sadistic. It's a new word, "sardastic".
The race to win the coveted Alfred E. Newman Award for Political Stupidity and Contrivance 2016 was off to a great start. It's a pre-political year! Yippee, a-holes galore warming up for the onslaught. The Alfred E. Neuman award for Political Brilliance in and out of the political arena. In the past this award has been given to such "extinguished" candidates as George W. Bush, Rush Limbaugh, Sara Palin and Glenn Beck.
There is more money in being an instigator, than in problem solving. Just ask SARAH PALIN our 2010-2011 Winner. No ideas, no answers, just complains and complains and if you jiggle the letters in the word COMPLAINS, you get PALIN MOCS.
And the LORD has been kind, we have an over abundance of underachievers many with fouled backgrounds seeking a high office with three foot ladders at best.
TRUTH SITES: SNOPES, POLITIFACT, and WIKIPEDIA
I rely heavily on some websites that uncover the distortions and lies, half-truths semi-truths, partial truths, and creative writing by those lightly equipped and underachieving with powdered brains and sensitivities. Yes, I may repeat a few lines from articles and information after I have sourced them out. Truth is truth. And Im making appoint probably shared by others.
Adding to this collection are the quotes and sometimes “ sick" thoughts of brain-farters, aka "entertainers", false assumptions, and conspiracists, those who come up with things lending comfort to other mentally deprived thinkers, truth or not. I call them gas hacks, always throwing fuel on the fire.
My three favorites check out sites are Snopes.com, Politi-facts and for general information, I reference WIKIPEDIA, the online encyclopedia.
For ten years, David and Barbara Mikkelson have devoted themselves to double-checking the cannon fodder that permeates the web. Their site www.snopes.com is one of the best on urban myths and flatus dependus moronus. For those not understanding Latin, it means "fart headed moron" which is one who suffers from cranial-rectal dyslexia.
Their site, Snopes, has grown into one of the most popular and influential fact-checking destinations on the Web. In a given week, Snopes tries to set the record straight on everything from political smears to old wives’ tales.
PolitiFact is a project of the St. Petersburg Times to help you find the truth in politics. Every day, reporters and researchers from the Times examine statements by members of Congress, the president, cabinet secretaries, lobbyists, people who testify before Congress and anyone else who speaks up in Washington. They research their statements and then rate the accuracy on their Truth-O-Meter – True, Mostly True, Half True, Barely True and False. The most ridiculous falsehoods get the lowest rating, Pants on Fire. They also rate the consistency of public officials on our Flip-O-Meter using three ratings: No Flip, Half Flip and Full Flop. A few bottom lines about urban myths. Dr. Goebbels, Glenn Becks mentor was right, tell a lie, a big one, tell it often and make it loud. Our conclusion: There are a lot of people out there posting items that have only a glancing relationship with the truth and the worst part is they themselves rarely care if it is the truth or not.
"It stopped being just a website a long time ago. For many of us, most of us, Wikipedia has become an indispensable part of our daily lives." Wikipedia is a free, web-based, collaborative, multilingual encyclopedia project supported by the non-profit Wikimedia Foundation. Its 15 million articles have been written collaboratively by volunteers around the world. and almost all of its articles can be edited by anyone with access to the site. Wikipedia was launched in 2001 by Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger and is currently the largest and most popular general reference work on the Internet.
