Wake Up From the Dream

“America is not a young land: it is old and dirty and evil before the settlers, before the Indians. The evil is there waiting.”

William S. Burroughs

Reading this stopped me dead in my tracks, cold. For I have felt this way too...about this spit of land that I live on now. You can feel it rumbling under the sun and beach and ice cream children. It is there. Energy from the past lingers. And I do believe this was the place of the first encounter between the people living here and the arriving settlers. The energy is here.

Hopeless

I am your mother

I am your mother

Spiritual Intuition

I've seen it in a young woman-- walking zombie-like across the street at 5:00 am, thinking she is either drugged out or under some kind of mind-control. I've seen it in the harsh treatment of the summer help by the locals. I've seen it in the little blue pin-wheels blowing in the wind on the lawn of a local bank, representing children who have been abused. I've seen it in the number of homeless on the streets, and how they are shuffled along so as not to bother the tourist. And I've seen it in the cavalier treatment of justice in a murder trial.

I also happen to know a woman who's sister was murdered....her body buried in the woods here....one of many. And the odd thing, is, she's friends with relatives of the man who killed her sister. Small place.

So, you can feel it in the air if you are attuned to that kind of thing...and many here are. It's an artistic community and also one of alternative life-styles. Mixed in with some very conservative retired people and some of great wealth.

American Dream?

I am your neighbor

I am your neighbor

Confederacy Never Died

It has been compared to the south, in that only a relatively small number of families settled here and they intermarried. So, you will see the same names on buildings, roads, etc. And you will often see the same name as both the defendant and judge in a trial! And actually, that trial I spoke of has been compared to the books Twelve Angry Men, and To Kill a Mockingbird.

The Reckoning

What is my point in this essay? I don't know. Burroughs words just struck me and compelled me to write. And at the same time, conjured up a poem by Jim Morrison called L'America....My America! The place I love/hate all at the same time! The place where I stood at the top of the Statue of Liberty and had the strong urge to jump! It's our destiny to be here at this time...L'America has something to do with the recompense. For it has evil in it. In the ground. In the buildings. In the old broken down brick factories that sit vacant and stare out with empty- eyed windows into the night. One can imagine all the dark and dirty secrets that roam those city streets. The long ago past and the not so distant. And it has drifted down here too. The palpable something...ready to pounce. Ready to rumble up. Ready to tell its tale. I have a feeling it will come as no surprise to many.

Give Me Your Poor

Poetry Reveals

The last lines from L'America, byJim Morrison:

doomed from the start

l'america

"That's how I met her,

l'america

lonely & frozen

l'america

& sullen, yes

l'america right from the start"

Then stop.

Go.

The wilderness between.

Go round the march.

Dream Big

In Parting

Sweet Land of Liberty....may we continue to work towards living up to those high ideals.

“Idaho man threatened to shoot nurse if she didn't treat his son-in-law's COVID-19 infection with ivermectin”

Enough of this insanity, enough. Get Fox off the air. It’s an enemy agent, and we’re at war.

I’m really curious….what do anti vaxxers attribute all these deaths to?

You don’t believe the doctors and nurses….that is odd.

You think you want to live? Wait til you find out you are dying.

And your crowd is furthering death. For what?

The crowd that believes women don’t have the right to remove a fertilized egg from their bodies is not serious about freedom.

And, your freedom ends at my nose. You want to gamble with Covid, stay away from others. You are not free to spread a deadly disease. That is called murder.

Period!

DO I NEED TO EXPLAIN IT TO YOU????

How many have died unnecessarily of Covid? Every single day.

DO YOU CARE?

Where is the thread with picture of Covid dead? Gunshot dead?

Oh…..those people aren’t politically useful. Those people are throwaways.

Cause, after all, you have to have your guns, and you have to have your freedom from vaxxing and masking….so…….

Let’s go after Biden and the military, because we don’t want to look in the mirror.

We were given a cure. Simple and easy.

Wear a mask. Get vaxxed.

You couldn’t do it. Too tyrannical for you. As you defend cops killing black men for nothing. Defend trump’s brutal treatment of BLM. Defend building a godam wall, when desperate people, like YOUR ancestors needed a place to go.

Oh I can’t wear a mask…..my freedom. But that raped girl will have that baby, because the tyranny of religion.

That innocent black man will spend life behind bars to protect White killers, because the tyranny of racism.

You want to talk tyranny?

A mask is tyranny?

Never will I get you. Ever. Nor do I want to. It’s time you get us. We’ve kissed your butts far too long.

God, I miss balanced forums. It’s all Trumpees now, in one form or another.

And 71% of this country approves of Biden’s job.

Why is hubpages so slanted and biased? And why does it represent the 18% trump fascists? Why?

Boy, I remember when Hillary was talking about free public college, refinancing student loans, creating new jobs with clean energy, common sense gun laws.......

All the “elite”, criminal stuff, you know?

Was it just cause it came out of a woman’s mouth that it was ignored? Do we still need a hero man?

“American history is breathtakingly violent, along stark lines of race. That’s just a fact (indigenous depopulation, slavery and its aftermath, halving Mexico, “manifest destiny” etc.) The question is will we face it and if so what will we do about it? That’s it.”

Boy, if you don’t like the idea of a Covid passport......try applying for long term healthcare insurance!

Massive questions....your whole health history, access to all you medical records.

And then, you have to take a cognitive test over the phone.

Or, how about applying for just an ID? Holy cow, the things my grandson had to go through....it was unbelievable!

Then, of course, when my license expired, they don’t accept original birth certificates anymore. You need the one from the town or city you were born in. That took forever, and of course, cost money.

Then the Real ID.....extra money. Wont be able to fly or enter gvt buildings without one.....

But I don’t hear any gripes about this stuff.....only Covid passports....almost as if someone told you to be upset....got you all riled up, as they went and got their shots.

Since you’re upset already.....google these:

Koch industries

Netanyahu and Trump

Republican Attorneys General Association

Council for National Policy

Federalist Society

Opus Dei

Oh, they don’t bother you? Only Gates and Soros do? Are you all anti semites?

“In early March, a group of five scientists reportedly warned Indian officials that a more contagious variant was on the rise. But the gov didn't listen. Instead, PM Narendra Modi and opposition lawmakers held large political rallies with millions of unmasked supporters.

“The summer is here and people are outside and nobody seems like they’re dying every day,” explains Yahoo News Medical Contributor Dr. Kavita Patel, a Brookings Institution health scholar and former Obama administration official. “People think, ‘Right. I’m done. I don’t need to get vaccinated.’ So we’re probably going to hit 60 to 65 percent [vaccinated] and have to get used to a couple hundred COVID deaths a day. That’s the price we’re going to have to pay.”

How long do we have to keep appeasing them? Forever?

Another bill banning transgender children from participating in sports.”

Did you hear the one where schools can investigate your kids genitals?

These people are out of control. They want to bind us so tight we can’t breathe.

It’s cruelty on display. Simply because they are losing ground. Drifting away as sifting sand........Dust in the wind.

The more they try to hold on, the more we oppose it.

All of your Gods are outdated. You made them in your image, and it turns us OFF.

YOU are not god. Will you ever get that?

Just heard this on the radio:

“People ages 30-39 have 3 times more chance of dying in America than Europe. Why?

1. Opioid abuse

2. Gun violence

3. Lack of healthcare
