It is the time of cold. After Christmas is when the prairie becomes bitter cold. Weather where the hired man or the farm freezes to death feeding the stock. Time when the expensive electric heaters are turned on sparingly. The snow is welcome snow insulates.
There is no program for getting solar electric to the people we have plenty of sunlight but it is held back by high instillation costs. Our country banks can care less about productivity increasing out here in the big empty. The State of Colorado is always broke, the feds give only to the rich. Our ever so corrupt county government has interest in helping the big hats and keeping the lid on the schools no time for solar here. Culture is in the hands of heard hearted Baptist preachers and Denver grants mavens so the there is a wall manned by puritans around the arts and science.

A time of greed for the children and remembrance for the aging. There were times of great shared love and times of poverty with out bitterness just surviving the thirty years of child raising. There were no failures, the children all grew and became independent adults inventing themselves. Lots of bumps nicks scratches the young people are intact in place and moving though great adventures. A brigade of Siamese cats and a company of wolves, setters, Dobies and fish bark, chirp and swim on. And there is a Black Forest of memories and tales we told. The house is quite until the current Husky Kenzi comes in.

आर्ट Rap

Painting and drawing come hard to me. I did not start drawing until I was thirty five.I thought I was trapped in photography by dyslexia. Then I took some lessons from Susan Anderton and I was off. Later in Denver I spent a couple of years at the Art Students League working on life drawing which led to me discovering my painting style "busted realism." I like to simply draw or sometimes take out the water color box. Did a series of air brush portraits until the money gave out. I feel like a farmer when asked what he'd do with a million dollars "Farm until the money gives out."

Not pitching the bitch rather being a realist. Art is in a tail spin for reason's out side the artists ability to deal with the market. The corrupt grants system worked for grants writers until the gravy train was hijacked by the the banksters and now only the stars get to make a living.

What I have been discovering is the backlash to unintelligible art is burying abstract art in the mass graveyard. Some of it was good most was lousy schlock as is the current revival of "impressionist art. There is some good stuff coming out of religious art: Kata Billups, David Merick pop up and cannot be denied as with George Pratt in the comic book world, Jureck with the airbrush, Jan Sitts exploring the mind, Doug Dawson hitting the hard bricks. Tom Lunn etching. Haven't heard Kay Kutch (Kay Starr).There are many others but I live in the Sahara of Bozart in Easter Colorado. Hard to find exposure among the Southern Baptists and methheads, the air fresh between Chemtrail dustings, sort of a balance.

थे लूकिंग ग्लास इस Cracked

Yes the picture is ugly but then wars are ugly. And the people who wage them are uglier. So called warriors be they Islamic or from the west are horrid people pretending to bring liberation while chaining people to primitive belief systems far older than the current gods they fight for. Who is more prmitive the Islamic with his god of stoning and worship of the moon and the male member or the convenent Christian with his god of commodity and facist conformity.
There is a third God the dead god of Marx slain by its acolytes, the corrupt administrators, but then are not all administrators corrupt. Look at China caught in the vise of corruption. Look at the United States a newly enslaved nation of fools paying for the excess of it's ruling class. Or look at their lap dogs the Brits losing their health and education systems to pay for few bankers games.
Look at Assange jailed by a woman for not giving her the quality of orgasm she demanded. Look at the crotch sniffing Swedes arrogant in their enforcement of laws centering on personal pleasure while claiming sexual liberation. Their kingdom is a farce their laws absurd.
And the fascist empire called America looking with it's Chinese ally for any excuse to limit freedom: sexual and intellectual. The only good news is the empires crater quickly especially those dependent on thugs criminal administrators ruling with fragile technologies.

हिस्टरी इस Happening

Wikileaks has arrived big time over the last few months.It's a real life adventure complete with sex, violence, law and loads of official criminality.
The United States has gone rogue again, the last time this happened with any seriousness was nineteen seventeen when a Democratic, academic, President lost control of the country to bankers and the British Government.
Wilson set up a police state with AG Palmer and his main girlie man Hoover. They were impowered to break the back of the IWW, Industrial Workers of the World.
The IWW saw the war in Europe as a war on radical movements.
The bankers had the press under their thumb the Hurst empire hated the unions (as much as Disney ) as did the emerging later facist Ford Corperation. Hurst called for the round up of radicals and and the bankers saw that the war would execute a generation that they felt were infected with radiucal thinking. Meanwhile the masters of capitalism were financing the Klan (which ruled the western states as well as the South.) Klansmen executed union organizers and Blacks and Indians in all the Western states and continued to rule states like Colorado until the ninteen sixties.
The forces of government moved against the union and other radicals even after the war ended. America became a police state, unions broken working people robbed by the banks and the Robber Bankers were setting up the Great Depression without an organized opposition. Intellectuals fled for Europe as soon as the guns stopped firing, the country became brainless and stayed that way until the Beats appeared.
That is what is being set up now. Play boy doper president Bush gives way to an intellectual without a past who is given office by the bankers who stole three generations wealth. I think we are entering darker times that our grandparents.

स्टेप्स ओं थे रोड तो Change

I got a posting about airline addons to baggage fees and insights of the deteroration of capitalism seem to be coming true in front of my eyes
In the sixties after I left the thrall of International Socialism behind I listened to varying degrees of anarchism and allied myself with the syndicalists but left the door to a more practical approach to economics. My then wife set me looking at industrial democracy in general and after a short time I came into contact with the Internationale Situationist, I liked Debord's etal's stand and labored though their texts which were as understandable as any action filled book by George Lukas.
Where they were going was that the great powers were going destroy one another in the cold war push. I thought that capitalism might fail because of it's criminal nature. I was wrong the USSR was a more efficient kleptocracy than the West and besides by then the Chinese were beginning to throw in their expertise in banking on the capitalist side.
Capitalism survived because it absorbs corruption, Marx was a Utopian economically capitalism is utilitarian morally. There is the rub that modern day international capitalism was founded by total criminals. Meyer Landsky was a crook, the Rockefellers crooks, Bush Boys crooks and the Sherpa s: Skinner, the whole Chicago School crooks.
The last honest capitalistic thinking was done in the nineteen twenties by the scientific capitalists who were attempting to answer Marxist -Leninism and National Socialism. Since then we have stepped backwards first with objectivism (libertarian capitalism) Then with faith in giant sink holes of stolen money. We find the toll gate appearing everywhere with the thug to take the money. We find him in education, travel, work even parking the car. Crossing the street becomes a taxable event. Look at the land rush to tax smoking weed.
The socology of these events becaomes interesting. Heroes are Robin Hood, Kydd, Duritti, Sparticus followed by Ball and the Diggers. All roads lead to revolt.

मर्थ'स विनेयार्ड इन नीद ऑफ़ अ फर्स्ट Family

The Obama's are vacationing on Maratha's Vineyard, woe to my class mates from Tisbury elementary school not that many are still alive. Every time he visits the Island there are howls I hear in Eastern Colorado where I currently fester. I guess he is going to enjoy the beach while the rest of the people get enjoy his security teams turning the Island into Stalag 17, I wonder who is playing Sargent Schultz.
They have been monitoring all calls and making lists for month and this year they know how to block all the roads, run their check points and harass the children of the very rich and famous.No like the Vineyard of yore where we could make a Fascil Vega disappear along with sever Kennedy concubines.
The Islanders in those days had not totally succumbed to the real estate agents song of "just one house on the land." Now they appear to be as corrupted as Aspenites or Jackson Holers. Their gated communities in reality whore houses (see Phil Ochs Rhythms of Revolution.)
One wonders what happened to the Coast Guard boat house and dock that burned up in a lightning strike, now the government has to build a new one.I bet that project gets started before the there are people finding a solution to homelessness (no one says grab some land and build your own with your own hammer and nails.)

This is What a Police State Looks Like.

There is a disaster in the Gulf and of course the Government has privatized it. Reporters and scientists are banned from the results of the the calamity. There is prison for those who wish to learn what is really happening. Homeland Security the same Klan ridden outfit that forbids kids to read Malcolm X in school is now in-charge of America's science.
B.P. and the clowns who created the disaster of extraction has closed the site to non believers from the scientific community meanwhile there is a real good chance of there being a big bang from the gasses that are pouring out of the earth into the Gulf. All the talk of using explosives on a methane leak might well be a fitting exit for the American Era. Sort of when Stalin set off the workers Bomb, the one that only killed capitalists.
There is a logic loose on the land that at every turn attempts to solve complicated problems destruction and death. Sort of like sticking your head in an oven while looking for a gas leak with a match.
What we have here is multilevel stupidity along with a facist state called the United States of America. "White man's going to get blown to the moon cause White-man's got a God complex." to paraphrase Gil Scott Heron.

Ken Coates Marxman

I read today of the death of my friend and author of a book I helped illustrate Ken Coates. When we met I was a green young photographer who had discovered that most of what he knew was a lie.
Growing up in the fifties and early sixties in America I had become keenly aware that there were major differences between what Americans believed and what we saw in the real world.
We were told that we were educated to advance our personal standing in the world yet were some how better than Black people.
We were told that we Americans could administer the world in a much more humane way than Africans Asians and Latin Americans.
We were told that American culture was much more vital and real than the peoples of the world.
I had seen though the lies and the layers of lies that make up first American education and second the American Nightmare.
I had seen America point the rifle at the Mexican and ruin his country. I had seen the FBI set up the machinery for the drug cartels in Oaxaca and the enslavement of the peasants to to work the soil for the rest of their short lives growing drugs.
I knew the segregated South with millions tied to depleted soil their dreams subjagated by first Dixiecrat then Republican White folk.
I had worked with W.Eugene Smith as his lives was smashed by the Luce Empire of lairs Henry the First Henry the Second and Henry the third. Men who created an America of false saviours and ever more rapatious criminal leaders.
I knew the Kennedys, Bundy's, Duponts, Bushs' and Duvals knew they were lying looting a continate and leaveing the people who did the work in the dirt.
Coates intoduced me to Marx, Lenin and Trotsky also Fanon C. Wright Mills. While I worked for the Week and with the Dialectical analysis he enhanced the isometric thinking my capi6talist educators had indoctrinated me with as a student. Coates opened a confusded mind and I could see the direction of victory over the corprate state. Coates, and Trevor Griffins set the opening of my mind into high gear. Then Ray Gosling challanged me when I parroted what I was reading at the time.
I was able learn the contradictions of Marxist Leninist thought almost as I saw how these ideas worked in the world. I was horrifed by the great slaughter that great minds put together. Socialist Russsia China Germany became thrones of blood. When I read Walter Benjamin, Buckminster Fuller, Makhano, the manifesto 's of the Kronstadt, the work of Debord and the Situationists I learned there are other better ways achieve liberation from the corporate fascist state that was forming back in those days.
I thank Ken Coates for challenging the mind I arrived at his doorstep carrying like paper sack. I am proud to have known him when I read and critique Zizek, Zarzen or the primitives who offer stone tools to feed seven billion people.

Car trouble on a Lonely Road

I was out at the abandoned park, someone stole all the water from the dam so no one goes there.
I had gotten the bow out strung it and locked my keys in the car. No big deal I live a primitive existence. A few rocks and some wire from a near by fence and an hour of fishing for lever and I'mback behind the wheel. Turn the key and nothing. Try all the switches nothing. Try the flashers and something so it is a blown master fuse no big deal except I don't want to do damage by sticking a penny in the socket, or a cap over an oil spill.
No cell phone so it is walking time. Three miles to US 24 first thing though my head is the Holy Modal Rounders Long John. "It's a long road winding to the land of my dreams." This is the West where the roads are a straight as a real estate mans hand into your bank account. Got to stick to the road cause I'm wearing sandals. Next song in my head was Never Tries of the Road Andy Irvine tribute to Woody, never ran with Woody but I did with Cisco and Will. So the song sticks and the miles pass.
Come to the big road US 24 West it goes to the the Pen in Buena Vista where the school tried to imprison my kid for reading Malcolm X and bad poetry. East it becomes !-70
I's getting toward dark and there's twelve miles to go I start walking cause traffic is fast and the miles get long. A kid in a red Olds comes close to hitting me I give him the universal high sign and continue being careful on the bridges over our drought dry creeks. a White pickup does a one eight and I and the car are on our way home. It's a pals kid who has been taught mutual self aid by his ever so cool mama; no school teaches that around here.

First Day

Last night I was atttempting a work of fiction about looking for the truth. I was moving right along at about two pages an hour, better than a fathom per fortnight. It was fiction so I could have a preditory church working in consort with a predatory security firm to dominate the stupid and venal in the fictional village of Colorado Springs. When I dicided to check the e-mail and found that Indy media Colorado is attempting to fight off an attack by the FBI. So I wrote a pal inside the Beltway who wrote back that finally the hooligans were going to be stopped after their cruel attack on our brave Israeli allies. The IDF put the pistol against the head of the bad lad and shot him four times. They knew they would get away with murder.
I will say this about the leftoids they are incredibly stupid marching in lock step with the Muslman who only wants to slay the infdel and then rip his daughter's clitoris out. No the left is a ship of fools on a good day.
Remember the drive to elect their perfect Leader a man of peace and wisdom. Who put that evil creature in the White House intent on slaughtering the Afghan and impoverishing his subjects, in power?
A pal asked me the question of where is Navy in regards to the Gulf Disaster? The only experts are the ones who have opened the gate to an extinction event? There are no scientists besides the ones working for the Sisters and they are all in rectal cranial defilade?They are having the heavy thinkers in Coast Guard our sea going tax collectors and dope chasers, the most underfunded service?
I hear very little criticism of the events in the Gulf other than lamentations from the shore line accompanied by the outstretched hand.
I understand the dumbing down of education in the Crescent City is every worker in New Orleans selected for total stupidity? What happened to the crafty Cajun, the Latin Sailor, the water folk, Swamp Dwellers have they been placed in camps like the Lakota?
