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

Goal. Take the corporate funding out of campaign financing.

When Karl Rove’s group [Crossroads GPS] spends $600,000 on TV advertisements that removes democracy from the election process. Take a moment to join the discussion on their facebook page. Explain WHY the occupy movement is a good idea. http://www.facebook.com/CrossroadsGPS
We ought to have majority rule in the USA. Sadly, when corporations fund the election process… this is lost. Many people still watch TV and their minds have been brainwashed. More pictures of #occupyEurekaCA  click here

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.

WordPress delivers higher ranking on Google Image Search

It seems to me that images published HERE show up more than any other free webpage.

Thanks,  Wordpress. I’m promoting my webstore. http://www.zazzle.com/gregvan* 

I figure with the TINY sales actually made on my zazzle webstore, advertising for pay is out of the question. I tried the $75 free Google adwords and have received many visitors… If I was actually paying for that service I would be taking a loss on my store everyday… While I recommend the free trial, be sure to cancel before they start charging you real money.

Yes, I had a fun evening playing with my image manipulation program… I could have wasted my life with a video game but it has been delivering error messages instead of fun. One fact of life to consider, If you do “cloud computing” all your work has to travel thru the internet to the server where your program resides. If you use WHAT’S INSIDE THE BOX, you do not need to wait for all that communications software to perform. Often, the internet is simply broken here in Eureka, CA due to the fact that there is ONE fiber optic cable connecting us to the world. Conclusion: Think  Inside the BOX. Do your work on your own machine, save it on your own hard disk and then later… PUBLISH.

Avoid computing “FADS” and do what works best. Sure, I appreciate the fact that other people will give me disk space for free. Thanks. That way I have a safety backup if my machine fails. No, not IF… When. It is a certainty that my machine will fail so it makes sense to store your stuff “in the cloud” in many places…  Picassaweb, Office Live, Yahoo… Remember, if you just store it in one place, they can delete your files at any time. For example: GeoCities… So make multiple copies and store in many places… GEE, that sounds like the Human Brain and Holographic Memory.

Federal Police Attack the Weak Intentionally

May 1, 2011

With CRAZYLAWS[tm] we have the Federal Government arresting Medical Marijuana Patients. Amazingly, they feel that attacking the weak is a good idea… I can see their point, what’s someone who is dying of cancer going to DO when the Police break down their door in the middle of the night… They certainly can’t fight back. It’s a low-risk law enforcement task… If the police tried to arrest Murders, that’s dangerous… so they enforce laws where the victims are defenseless. Hauling bedridden grandmothers off to jail… What a bunch of D.E.A.th Freaks.

Schedule #1 Drugs Have No Medicinal Value. That's a False classification for Hemp.

Cut Defense Spending by 400 Billion Dollars

May 1, 2011

I applaud President Obama’s Idea of de-funding the DoD. Many of the proposed projects are total wastes of our taxpayer’s dollars. For Example: Buying new aircraft carriers. Gee, don’t we have ENOUGH obsolete hardware already? We should refund the money to the taxpayers and we promise to spend it feeding our families, paying rent and putting gas in the car so we can get to our jobs… THAT would get the economy moving… We would spend it on useful things, or useless stuff, but we would employ clerks in stores and farmers…

Send President Obama a message: Cut spending at DoD and DEA. Do it for the KIDS!

We also could employ Americans growing Industrial Hemp. NO ONE can give a valid reason for Industrial hemp being illegal. I challenge ANYONE to tell me a reason. gregvan@yahoo.com

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.

Earthquakes and global warming: Linked?

February 7, 2010

Is there a cause and effect between the two? anyone know?
Write to me at: gregvan[at]yahoo[dot]com

Let’s suppose you take a balloon with two parallel lines on it. If you inflate the balloon the lines become farther apart. Now, suppose the lines are fault lines and the balloon is planet eARTh. If the fault lines move farther apart would we not get more slipping? more eARThquakes?

This question does not involve any discussion on causes of global warming… As we all know, The GLOBAL WARMING ON MARS is not due to air pollution… or greenhouse gasses.. or Driving cars… We have photographic Proof that MARS is heating up and the ice caps are shrinking… What we really need to do is start building THE SPACE PARASOL.
It’s cooler in the shade…
