An open letter to Republicans. by Tom Nash

June 3, 2012

Do you miss the good old days when conservative Republican statesmen were thoughtful, considerate, kindly gentlemen like Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan? Do you yearn for a time when civility, propriety and decorum ruled the day? Are you fed up with the regressive, belligerent, obstructionist stridency of the current Republican Party?

On behalf of the Democratic Party, I am putting out the welcome mat to any patriotic Republicans who are unhappy with the decline of your party. You will find us to be a friendly, civilized party who champion the American principles of freedom, fairness, justice, tolerance, integrity and truth. We appreciate civil discourse and diverse opinion, so there’s plenty room over here for anybody who truly loves America.

You could be one of those Blue Dog Democrats. They are basically reasonable, conservative, decent Christian folks who believe that we can all work together to solve America’s problems. They would probably be Republicans if they could tolerate the smell over there. Most of them are about as conservative as President Reagan was.

Christian patriots are welcome too. All of the Democrat Presidents down through history have been good Christians. Despite what you hear on Fox News about President Obama being an Islamic terrorist, he is actually a devout Christian who practices good family values. Jimmy Carter was even a born again Southern Baptist. What would Jesus do? He was a man of peace who healed the sick and fed the poor. With values like that, he wouldn’t feel very welcome in today’s Republican Party.

So anyhow, come on over here and join with the Democrats for the betterment of America. We can all work together to undo the damage caused by that radical Republican free market agenda that concentrates all the wealth at the top. We can rebuild the middle class back to those good ole days before trickle down economics. We can create new opportunities for our children to prosper. We can rebuild our crumbling infrastructure and make our schools great again. Even rich Republicans would be wise to join with us. When the middle class is healthy again, they will spend lots of money, and you can get even richer.

Your new Democrat friend,
Tom Nash

A Science Fiction Story: Chapter Zero.

“You are under arrest” said THE MAN.

“Eat Lead, Copper.” said Merle Wayne Day.

and THE MAN did…

They were at a remote marijuana plantation in Humboldt County and Merle was not about to let Federal Law Enforcement interfere with his profit.

Too Bad, So Sad for THE MAN’s next of kin but everyone voluntarily selects their own career… It appears that  THE MAN’s choice was not the most brilliant idea.

The next puzzle was how to dispose of the body… Ecologically…

This area of the woods is home to BEARS and BIGFOOT… Someone was going to get a free lunch… and here comes one now…

“DANG” exclaimed Susan “These reality TV Shows are SOOOOO predictable… The criminal always gets caught in the end. BORINGGGGG. I’m changing channels right now. ”

CLICK.

“Whoosh” went the speaker in the TV set.

“Oh Boy, A Space Opera. ” said Susan.

“Whoosh-whoosh” went the speaker in the TV set.

“Who are you talking to?” aske Bob as he entered the room with a pizza, six pack of Sierra Nevada Beer and a big ol’ bag a weed…

“Nunya Beeswax” said Susan.

“Whoosh-whoosh-whoosh-KA BLOOOEY!” went the speaker in the TV set.

“Wow, Look at that!” said Bob.

“The SLIME from the dead alien is dripping onto the floor” said Susan.

“And it stinks” said Bob.

“That’s ABSURD. These new TV sets from [product placement] with ‘SMELL-O-VISION’ are more trouble than they are worth.”

CLICK.

TALKING HEAD: “In other news, Dr Ron Paul has accepted the Republican Party Nomination for President of the United States.  We go live to the convention floor where a riot has broken out. ”

CLICK.

“Wait a second, go back to that news report. That’s an event that DID NOT HAPPEN.”

“Oh don’t be surprised, it’s FOX news… they often write fiction and present it on the TV as news. ”

“Are you sure? They seem so sincere.” said Bob

“Yep, they have meetings, get blasted on mind altering substances and write collaborative fiction…” replied Susan

“Sounds good to me. Would you like a puff?”

“Yes. We’ve got some fiction to write ourselves… because this story is starting to drag.” Exhaled Susan

“Hey, I’ve got an idea!” Let’s watch CNN, they tell the truth…

CLICK.

“In other news, President Obama Legalized Medical Marijuana today. Stating, “I was wrong… I asked my doctor and she said there IS medicinal value to Medical Marijuana… So we have stopped the DEAth Squads… ” said the talking head.

Oh… CNN has gone NATIVE also… have we a distortion of the spacetime continuum? asked Susan.

Our Economy is starting to recover...

Civilization Coming soon.

MD: Until we put in policies that are conducive to an economic recovery, we will not have an economic recovery. Out unemployment will hover 
around the 9 to 10 % range for the forseeable future. I said this at the start of the recession, and so far I have been right. Sure, we will 
see spurts of recovery and Obama will try to make us believe there will be a recovery because of the election, but there will be no robust 
recovery needed to get this economy going.

Of Course, the obvious way to reduce unemployment is to RESET the social security retirement age to 55. Get the entire baby boom generation 
OUT of the work force. Let the NEXT generation have a chance.

OR, we could use come Comic Relief...

Thankfully, the price of a bus ticket remains the same even with the gas prices going CRAZY. It’s $2.20 round trip. This is less money than driving. Especially when you figure in the SURPRISE repair bills that come out of nowhere and whack you on the side of the head. Talk about a stressful situation… You and I have to get a high paying job to pay for the commute to our job. Circular madness… Yet, I have not found a way to earn a fortune online… My webstore has paid about $200 per YEAR. Sure, it is gratifying to sell my art at all, but it’s a long way from paying the rent and buying food.

My Invisible Friend (lyrics)

(Hay-Seuss)

I’ve got an invisible friend
and I call him Hay-seuss.
not Dr. Seuss or mother goose
but JESUS.

If you don’t believe
in Hay-seuss or mother goose
you’ll got to HELL (or Pittsburg)
and burn for eternity.

Oh, me and Jim Jones
we believe in Hay-seuss
and cyanide suicide
will get you quicker to his side.

I didn’t eat for three days
and I heard voices
God talked to me
like I was on LSD
and said you’re SATAN (or Peter Pan)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~@~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~.com
This Song was written when a friend of mine decided to find Jesus by fasting. He got real angry and became dangerous to be around… Considering that he spent time inside… I just walked the other way until he ate a big pile of spaghetti. FSM to the Rescue…
Here is some art to take your mind off troubles… Like friends acting crazy due to “Their Invisible Friend”.

Let’s suppose you wanted to distribute a secret message to your friends and family… Put your message in a Picture.  NO computer program would be able to “captcha” the secret message. It would take a HUMAN to read it… Comprende? Figure that the “Three Letter Agencies” have vast money to spend on data mining using computers but a dramatically smaller budget for employing PEOPLE to read your email. If everyone would just create messages that the computers can’t read, that would increase employment for voyeurs. The Peeping Toms that read your Facebook page are gainfully employed… Hey, it’s one way to decrease unemployment…
Hire more **@$#%#%#%%^&%^&%^&***
Of course, if you really want privacy… get the good stuff from PGP. At one point in time, it was a Federal Offense to export their data encryption programs. What a great selling point. Their programs are so good that they are ILLEGAL.

RESET SOCIAL SECURITY RETIREMENT AGE TO 55.

Like, TOTALLY Different

May 17, 2011

See, spelling is important… We kill for PROFIT, They kill for PROPHET. Like, TOTALLY Different.

That’s how you can tell the difference between “Freedom Fighters” and “Terrorists”.

Operation CYCLONE trained Afghans to fight Godless Communists… The USSR…

What IF… We ended the CRAZYWARS[tm] brought our soldiers home and hired them to teach reading, writing and arithmetic to children? We could simply “Declare Victory” and have BIG Parades.

Mathematical Proof God Exists

April 28, 2011

IF

evidence of  “he who shall not be named”=TRUE

AND

(the square root of -1) times “he who shall not be named”=God

THEN

FSM=TOTG /TMA;

Maybe I’m a little fuzzy about the Logical Proof… I did PASS Math 259 but got a “C-” grade… How about if I just show you a picture?

See, Here is a photo of "The One True God"

FYI: TMA  stands for Too Many Acronyms…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

But back to the math proof at the top of the post…

Is NOT “Demonic Possession” the only possible explanation of the behavior of Ronald Dumbsfield and Dickless Change-Thing?  We can explain the behavior of  hsuB egroeG… He is simply an MKULTRA brainwashing experiment gone wrong.

But,

THERE IS NO OTHER POSSIBLE EXPLANATION FOR THE OTHER TWO MEMBERS OF THE TRIPOD OF EVIL.

Re-set Social Security Retirement age to 55: Cure Unemployment NOW.

August 22, 2009

There are simply not enough jobs to be filled by people looking for work.

If we reduced the quantity of people looking for work by re-setting the age to 55, we would solve the unemployment “crisis”.

When I was young, everyone retired at 55. Every year the age has crept up… Now it’s 62. a few years from now it’ll probably be 64, then 66, 68, 70, 73, 78… how high can we count? It seems that retirement is always a few years away and constantly receding…

My dad pointed out that when he was working, the secretaries never got carpool-tunnel sin-drome… Why do they report it now???

Well, they typed on typewriters until their fingers wore out (at about 55) and never complained because they were retired… or never complained because they were afraid of getting fired… Lack of reporting does not mean the problem didn’t exist.

So, in order to reduce unemployment and reduce worker’s compensation claims… Set Social Security Retirement Age to 55.

If we have a trillion dollars to give away to the bankers, we can spent what’s needed to pay the people that have WORKED THEIR WHOLE LIFE.

Get the Baby Boomers out of the workforce so that the NEXT generation can thrive without unfair competition.

So, what’s it to be? Pay for Worker’s Compensation, Social Security Disability, State Disability, Welfare or do the right thing and re-set retirement age to 55.

I've been facinated by rainbow Squiralism for years. Squares rotated and resized.

In this case, I took a picture, then resized it slightly smaller and rotated it slightly. Then repeated those actions. In paint dot net it’s a ctrl+shift d z once you set up the factors… SQUIRAL… Learned the idea from a “basic” programming book designed to help TRS-80 users. I really liked basic… and made screensavers to demo the computers I sold when working at Radio Shack… One thing about the RS Computers, they really hit the nail on the head with “The Sensation”. That was the first computer for sale to the public that had a cd-rom drive in it… quite a good idea!

In the event that you are stressed out, remember to sing your rainbow songs… I heard this one at a gathering and wrote down the words. Then emailed Michael’s Cosmic Kitchen. He declined to add the extra lyrics to his page… He feels that his source of lyrics did not verify the extra words. http://www.cosmic-kitchen.com/song.php?id=rainbow.circle.songs__TheInfiniteSun

He has a great website… I have used it for lyrics for years… Two thumbs up for Michael.

Where’s Osama? Relaxing in the tropical Paradise of Islamic Indonesia?

May 11, 2009

President Barack Obama’s national security adviser says he isn’t sure if Osama bin Laden is dead or alive.
Retired Marine Gen. James Jones said Sunday that U.S. intelligence agencies are looking at data and watching for confirmed appearances by the al-Qaida leader.
Jones said, “The truth is, I don’t think anybody knows.”

You have to admire George Bush for his “Turn the other cheek” Christian response to Osama been Forgotten, a lesser man would have hunted him down and killed him but George was content to let him die of old age. Good for you, George…

Dear President Obama: Grateful Dead reunite. THANKS! You did it…

Saint Francisco CA named for Saint Francis... somehow that fits perfectly...

The Grateful Dead reunited to play a benefit concert for the Obama campaign. Now I see that the dead all got to visit the White House for a special tour. I hope they had a moment or two to discuss policy… LIKE: Tax Marijuana…Perhaps this is the time to legalize LSD for medical use. For Example, in psychotherapy it could be useful… we just do not know… there was some interesting research being done in the 1960’s but then the government FREAKED OUT and made LSD illegal.

“When in danger, when in doubt, run in circleS, scream and shout!”

and that is exactly what the US Government did by making LSD illegal… PANIC!

MKULTRA: The CIA/LSD mind control project that escaped the laboratory and got out onto the DANCE FLOOR!

April 29, 2009
Think for Yourself and Question RealityThink for Yourself and Question Reality...

Words of Wisdom... by Timothy Leary

MKULTRA: a CIA Mind Control Project in the USA during the 1950’s and 1960’s. They were looking for a way to use drugs as weapons of war. For example: LSD as a truth serum to aid in interrogation or as a way to simply get the “enemy” to lay down their arms, voluntarily… like, too stoned to fight…

The project conducted tests on college students at Stanford University. Ken Kesey and Robert Hunter both volunteered to eat LSD and other mind control drugs and report on the effects. Later, Ken started having “ACID TEST” parties where the participants took LSD and danced to the Music of the Grateful Dead. Robert Hunter wrote lyrics for the Dead.

Just co-incidence? or were “the sixties” just a giant experiment to see what would happen???

The OSS (predecessor to the CIA) agent Edward Hunter created a new word for the English Language: BRAINWASHING: to cause a person to radically change their beliefs… They wanted to test if it was possible to cause people to start believing what they were told to believe… useful for control of a nation of sheep…

We can see that many people believed the LIES told by George Bush and voluntarily supported the invasion of IRAQ… Congress funded the war and teenagers joined the ARMY because they BELIEVED THE LIES! Two people are required for LIES to be effective… The TELLER of the Lies and the BELIEVER of the Lies.  It would be a good survival strategy to become skeptical. That way, you don’t end up a gullible fool.

“Think for Yourself and Question Authority” -Timothy Leary

Would the knowledge learned by years of research be useful in our present day war in the Middle East? Could we use psychedelics to reduce the will of the enemy to fight? Change a whole culture into Pacifists?

What would happen if ten million muslims ate LSD ? Would they put down their guns and pick up a guitar? Write some POETRY? Become HIPPIES?  READ MORE at:

solar ocean water to pure water distillery

April 26, 2009
saltwater to freshwater solar powered distillery

saltwater to freshwater solar powered distillery

This design uses the power of the sun to boil water creating steam (pure h2o) then uses the steam to drive an engine that pumps ocean water into the still. The steam can be collected when it condenses and be used for drinking, watering crops or washing. The remaining salt can be sold for a profit. This machine only works during sunlight hours so it automatically cleans itself at dusk. A typical installation could be used to turn desert countries into a fertile oasis. For example: If we built one in Saudi Arabia it could flood the empty quarter radically improving the ecology of the middle east. Imagine pumping thousands of gallons of freshwater into that desert…

An alternative design could use long black pipes centered at the focal point of a mirrored “half pipe” parabolic reflector.
