These are the words found at the end of my instructions to my sister, to be used when I’m at the end of my rope (literally).
Having watched my mother’s dragging along for several months caught up in the end stages of Altzheimer’s, I wanted it known beyond a doubt exactly what I want to have happen to me in the event I ever end up in that or a similar situation, for any reason.
The complete quote?
“Bring me a constant flow of tasty alcoholic drinks, and keep giving them to me until I’m no longer able to keep my eyes open and I enter REM state (or perhaps I should say RUM state). Anyway, after a few minutes have gone by, take a large soft pillow and press it down tightly over my face and hold it there until I stop kicking. And then, keep the pressure on for at least five more minutes to be sure it’s done. Finally, wait for a few hours to go by before calling the paramedics and reporting that you just came over to visit and found that I’m not breathing.
Not much room for ex-post-facto after thoughts on this, as they say in those old shoe ads, “Just do it”.
Swoosh!, and I’ve left the planet…..
It’s called Back Peddling!
Now, we can watch in total wonder as the Republicans, who have
long called the Democrats the party of tax-and-spend economics,
now have to “Back-Peddle” after the announcement that the national
debt being left by their GOP’s (some say the world’s) low expectations
leader was announced as nearing a half a trillion dollars.
Using the words Olympics and Bush in the same post? He’s a sports
whiz? Who knew? And, can Dead-Eye Dick Cheney be far behind,
competing in the “Marksman” category?
Here’s another Bush surprise, it looks like he’s a pitcher, not a catcher!

Name these once popular songs from just a few of their words, and then figure out their relationship to a previous posting of mine:
1. …. be jubilant my feet
2. …. and the fog was lifting, and the voice was chanting
3. …. Till all success be nobleness, and every gain devine
Double Bonus Points for naming the writer of #2
You’re back on a track (no pun intended) to regain the country we used to have not so long ago.
If you figured this out, feel free to send in some of your own, there’s a ton of them out there……..
If not, consider taking a night school class in American History, or Civics 101
…… ‘Cause I’m kissing you goodbye, democrats, republicans, and all you other lost sheeple.
Get back, keep your distance, I’m still morphing and I really don’t know where all of this is going to end up..
I’m now caught up in the middle of a revelation that is changing me down to my basic roots. I’ve long believed that my only option in politics was to choose between a democrat and a republican.
To me, this always seemed similar to being required to choose between being thrown into a cage filled with Tigers or one filled with Lions (Being from Detroit, the humor in this is hard to pass up, even to a non-sports person like myself.), but what are we to do since we’re locked into this deal.
In either case, you’re just a steaming pile of feline poop.
Since watching the film, I’ve taken a hard look into the world filled with people that I used to think ran around in tin foil hats and spoke in tongues, but now I’m not so sure. This all started with a gift of a DVD produced by Aaron Russo, who sadly died last year of cancer.
The film is called “Freedom To Fascism“ .
It was given to me by an audience member at a seminar that I audio recorded in Los Angeles for a motivational type speaker, not related to politics at all.
I took the disc because (honest disclosure here) she was a very pretty younger woman and I’m a lifelong heterosexual male, even though there was no plan for any future moves as I’m married and live in a community property state. Don’t mention that to my wife, but a guy can still dream, eh?
Well, that DVD sat on my desk for a few weeks, and then during some down time created by an oncoming S.A.G. strike work slow down, I popped it in the powerbook and watched it. Mr. Russo was the producer of some fairly large films, and he started this project as his own personal look at economical issues involving the ghost like organization that’s called the Federal Reserve, which is kinda / sorta a corporation but yet even with the federal part in the name, not exactly part of the government. Vague enough so far?
By the way, check on the ‘net to see what that “C” in FDIC stands for.
After an informational but for me not all that interesting look into money (when you don’t have it, it’s an issue for someone else), he veered into the rapid fading away of our personal rights in America, privacy being first among them. He covered a lot of ground in this, and then the tipping point for me came when he got into the RFID chips issue, something that I’ve known about for some time and have written about on the 3rd of last April, here.
I’m not ready to jump in and support Ron Paul just yet, but after watching and listening to Alex Jones, and a few others, who knows where all this will lead to?
This change for me is still going on, and I’ll be updating and correcting the links and my beliefs as it continues on this page soon, stop back when you can and watch it (and me) evolve.
Maybe I’ll even include some funny cat pictures and photos of Jim Morrison and the Doors, as for some unknown reason these topics seem to be drawing a lot of hits lately.

WTF Nancy, why’s Bush off the table?
Dear Ms. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi,
Do you keep track of exactly how many Americans have died or been injured since you first said “Impeachment is off the table”? Just asking……
A drop in the bucket since Bush declared Mission Accomplished?
How many drops of blood are there in a barrel of oil?
BatEman is here as (sort of) props to the work of Jason Bateman in “Hancock”, who also was in one of the funniest sitcoms I ever worked on when he was a kid called “It’s Your Move”. I can’t omit a brief mention his sister Justine Bateman, who probably was responsible for the sales of more boxes of Kleenex products to young men than anyone when the show “Family Ties” was on tv. I had the pleasure of working with her a few monts ago on a new project from Illiana Douglas, we shot at an Ikea store in Burbank, and I was so glad to get a chance to see that she’s still very attractive, and as it turns out, she’s a very good actress with the chops needed when one is not just the next pretty young thing.
Anyway, it’s almost spellled the same as “Batman”, as in “The Dark Knight”, which leads to……
No spoilers here, it you for some reason haven’t seen it, this is safe to read. But, if you really haven’t seen the film yet, get up off your ass and deal with the lines, it’s a picture that really calls for the “Big Screen” viewing. And I’m not talking about a large screen LCD or any type screen that can be measured in inches.
I saw “The Dark Knight” earlier today, and it’s just possibly the best film I’ve seen in many many years. I didn’t work on it, so this is not a hype statement, just a thank you for an excellent job from the cinematographer on down on the crew end, and actors that deserve the great reviews that they will get for this.
I’ve never seen Heath Ledger act in anything before (save the sermons please, it’s just something that happened) but now I understand all of the Oscar buzz about him, a young Jack Nicholson comes to mind. Same quality review for Aaron Eckhart, just an outstanding performance on his part (and killer special effects make up work as well).
I was a little shocked to see Michael Caine in what at first seemed to be a bit part, but he nuanced the living crap out of it, he’s a true Actor with a capital “A”, I’d pay to watch him read a phone book.
Christian Bale, as to be expected, was very good, matching his earlier work in the character. I was happy to see great work by Eric Roberts, who I had worked with on a piece of crap film a few months ago, that one P.O.C. that I got ripped off for two weeks pay and one weeks equipment rental, but that’s a story for another time….. and shouldn’t be taken as a reflection on Eric.
I’ll most likely add to this, but the whole thing is still sort of sinking in and being evaluated on some levels….. More to follow.
Oh yeah, bonus points to whoever can figure out how the power was delivered to the ground on the, um, I guess it’s called a batscycle?
Pandering as always to the right of the religious right, it would seem that the Bush administration and its subsequent republican followers hope to be able to define several widely used contraception methods as abortion.
Which begs the question, do men who masturbate thereby become (so to speak) known as mass murderers by default?
It seems like only a little while ago you could hear people humming “Every sperm is sacred” from the excellent ’80′s Monty Python film “The Meaning Of Life”, the song says it all, give it a listen here:
Can anyone explain why that street dance number didn’t get at least a “best choreography” Oscar?
But, I digress……..
It’s possible that under the even more asinine than usual Bush plan, you could be arrested as a felon for singing that song, but I suppose that humming it would only be a misdemeanor, more reason than ever to get a hum job? And as for the actual act of “Punishing the Pope”, certainly you’d be booked as conspiring to kill all of those innocent pre-born children?
Use caution, if you listen to it twice, you may have to do some time on your knees!

It seems that Mr. Bush is having a problem getting his erection monument up, his legacy as it were, on the campus of SMU. Some of the ingrate Methodists feel his way of seeing things is alien to them.
This is the welcoming party in that Bush-friendly country, the one that’s already agreed not to allow any extradition from their country of war criminals in the future, no need to name them. As of this date, they haven’t been asked about providing a haven for international war criminals, but just wait and see! You may notice that he men have no eyes, but that’s a fair representation of blind justice, and their (lack of) vision matches that of Bush.
In this shot, they’ve using a Syrian plane to make sure that there’s room for Air Force One to park. Actually, George W. Bush will be moving there with a much shorter and yellow airbus that was especially created for his presidency, so there will be more than enough space at the airport.
Here we see the head of the Abu Dhabi Department of Water and Power at a meeting of OPEC, where they will trade their oil for food, as their country is not able to produce that which is not already underground.
This photo is added to this post as a public service, lest someone, somehow forget………
With a little basic web research, I found this link:
Well, all I have to say is………
On the site, it’s explained that the “New and Reduced” bottles (and believe it or not, cans) of Pepsi products are the result of trying to use 20% less plastic, go green, save the environment, protect the future, etc….
So, it has nothing to do with protecting their profits or cutting their losses as Pepsi has to deal with the new economy that causes companies to pay more for the base elements used in producing their products.
In a most amazing revelation last week, doctors say that a health check up shows that Big Dick Cheney has a healthy heart.
Me, I’m just amazed that they found a heart in that walking bag of crap.
Wonder who he ripped it off from?
Or perhaps that should be, who he ripped it out of?
