Lost

Aimlessly stumble
The walls crumble
Unstable direction
Blurred reflection

Unity gone
Darkness dawns
Humanity fades
Corrupt parades

Soul-less leaders
Tomorrow's breeders
Elite rule
The working tool

Financial gain
Wrought with pain
Dividing class
Come to pass

Destruction nears
The puppeteers
Pull their strings
Useless things

Transparency reveals
Shady deals
Stealing rights
Promoting fright

Lead with fear
Ignorant cheer
False flag
Loaded mag

Gold's gleam
False dream
Misguided need
Fed by greed

Soldier down
Wear the crown
Lead the blind
Leave behind

All is lost
Pay the cost
For what it's worth
Bleeding Earth

Divided We Fall...

...And this country couldn't be more divided than what it is today. You see it everywhere everyday, whether on the news, your social media, websites, blogs, it is there, staring you in the face. People viciously attacking people, man against man, brother against brother. Blame gets passed around like a joint at a Grateful Dead concert. Go spend some time in the comments section of any political article an Yahoo! and see for yourself. Tens of thousands of commenters spitting vile filth at each other, spreading so much hate that would embarrass Satan himself. Hell, they even have it out with each other on articles that have nothing to do with politics. They come fully armed with their sack full of insults and fling their hate-filled bombs at anyone who dares give them a thumbs down.

Silly sheeple.

But why? Why so much hate? Why are we so divided? Somewhere along the lines, patriotism has died. We have forgotten the fact that we the people are all in this together. Aren't we supposed to be one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty, and justice for all? Nowadays you can't even say those words in our schools. And when you can't even recite the founding words of this once great country in our classrooms then you know all hope is lost.

So where did we go wrong? In the beginning, that's where. The blame lies partly on the formation and influence of political parties. George Washington, our country's first president, was the only president elected who had no party affiliation. John Tyler was the only other independent to serve as president. He was vice president to William Henry Harrison, a member of the Whig party, who died after only 32 days in office. George Washington had given a stern warning during his farewell speech about the destruction these political parties would bring to this country. We didn't listen.

So how does political parties destroy a country? Simple. They divide. They are designed to distract the public, as Washington so eloquently puts. They pit us against each other, forcing us to fight amongst ourselves, rather than fight those who mean to rule us. And while we are busy fighting amongst ourselves, they are silently passing laws through congress that strip us of our liberties. It's all a dog and pony act. You got these politicians, each representing their respective party, who stand before the public and convince them to believe one thing or another. Factor in multiple parties to generate a conflict of interest. Distract. Divide. Conquer.

These parties even have names for each other because, you know, name calling is completely mature and professional. I think it's a fair assumption that name calling makes up about 68% of all politics. When something isn't working just pass the blame blunt to the other party or the previous administration. That's what Obama supporters do best. Obama didn't wreck this country, it was all Bush's fault.
Liberals.
Conservatives.
Left wingers.
Right wingers.
The GOP (grand old party- aka republican)
The list goes on and on and there are far more insulting examples than what's provided here. But this post isn't about educating you on the childish political jargon. My children are more well behaved than all the fools that occupy our government today. These parties spend more time coming up with witty or catchy insults to make their opponents look bad than they do actually performing the job they were elected to do. It's all just an act, designed to give you the impression that they are hard at work. And to divide us all.

There are many things that would contribute to all this division and anger. The economy certainly plays a major role. The rich just keeping richer, the poor keep getting poorer and the middle class is nearly extinct. This fact of life has America in an uproar. On one hand you have the poor attacking the rich, wondering why they need so much money. The rich retaliate with "If you work hard enough you can have this much money", which is true, but only to a certain extent. Millions of Americans go to college, earn a degree, put in the hard work and still come up empty. And the middle class, what's left of it anyways, is asking why their wages remain stagnant while the cost of living is on the rise.

Then there's social media. Through social media, people are finding a voice who otherwise might not be heard without the use of social media. And of course everyone has a different opinion. People can flap their jaws with no consequence. And the vile hatred they pop off is out of control. Before the internet we all seemed to be on more common ground. Human interaction has changed since the internet. We've forgotten how to work together as a society, how to treat each other. Social media has destroyed society. Not so social now, is it?

And of course there's the banks. The banks own us all, and the politicians. Many of the these new laws passing through congress aren't even written by legislators. The bankers are writing these laws and are giving them to our representatives, accompanied by a big fat check of course. Obviously the beneficiaries of these bills are not We the People, but the bankers behind them. You have to be a billionaire to have any kind of influence in our political system. The problem with that is that all the wrong people are influencing our politicians. The average American citizen simply doesn't have a voice unless they got the money to back it. We don't have any money so there you go.

The bottom line is this...The division and inequality in America is taking us down a dark and dangerous path. Tune in next time when we discuss where that path might lead us.


Thank you and vote wisely, my friends!

Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled eggs, traditionally known as a popular breakfast item served in kitchens all across the globe. It is a simple yet tasty recipe of eggs and what the fuck ever you choose to mix in with it to create the right kind of scramble that is appealing to your taste buds. Some people use butter, others may use milk. Hell, there are even the most daring egg connoisseures who would go so far as to use butter-milk.

You can picture it now, can't you? A big steamy pile of fluffy goodness, perhaps even topped with some cheese, or even a splash of hot sauce, staring you in the face, begging to be eaten. Perhaps you even like to infuse bacon into your scrambled eggs, achieving maximum flavor and completing that perfect breakfast harmony that only bacon and eggs can provide.



Hungry yet? Good. Because this post has nothing to do with breakfast. No, I'm talking about a different kind of scrambled eggs....the mind. Notice how I said the mind and not my mind. I believe that if your mind doesn't feel like scrambled eggs than you're not using it properly. I am confident that most of my readers are scrambled, some of you extra fluffy even, and that's a good thing. A scrambled mind is a sure sign of intelligence.

Or a scrambled mind can fuck your whole world up, which unfortunately is more often the case. I'm always searching for answers about myself, what makes me tick, what is the driving force behind certain behaviors, what changes me. Recently, I've been searching for answers as to why I have more or less given up on this blog. Why did I walk away when I was starting to get good? I've read through my history and I could see how my writing and creativity was improving with every post. So why? Why walk away?

The only logical answer I could come up with is scrambled eggs. My mind is so scrambled from all the information coming in from all different directions. Bottom line, the world is just so fucked up. From the the products we consume to the monetary system. It is fucked up from top to bottom. There is shit happening in the world that just blows your mind and leaves you wondering "How in the fuck is this even allowed to happen?"

I don't even know where I'm going with this. All I know is that it's fucked all to hell and that something needs to be said about it. But when you have scrambled eggs for a brain you're lucky to even form a coherent sentence. When there is so much madness in the world it's hard to even maintain a single thought before your mind leads you to yet another thing that is....well, fucked up.

And this would explain how I've lost interest in writing. Too much information, not enough keystrokes in me to process it. I could pick just one particular thing and write about that. But what if my message was about the endless list of all things fucked up? I don't know, somehow I've let the world get me down. There is so much to say and not enough of me to say it. So much that needs done and so little means of doing it.

I guess my problem is that I want to share my knowledge all at once to quickly get everyone on the same page. That would be impossible, however, and so I suppose I must be more realistic. I should just do what normal, non-scrambled eggs people do and share bits and pieces of information at a time.

And speaking of getting everyone on the same page...that is where I will begin. Tune in next week when I tackle the issue of division among the citizens of the USA in the upcoming post titled Divided We Fall. 




"It serves always to distract the public councils, and enfeeble the public administration. It agitates the community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one part against another; foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passion. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another."

-George Washington- farewell address, warning of the danger of political parties

How do you like your eggs?
