You Say You Want a Revolution

I have really been remiss at making a reply to comments on my blog space. When I post a new Battle of the Bands, I intentionally don’t reply to comments, because I’m a blabber mouth, and I really don’t want to tip my hand regarding my favorite, before you all have a chance to vote. But, on some of my other thought provoking posts (Ha!) I have had replies formed in my mind, but life keeps me from making a timely comment.

Anyway…I want to use this post to reply to some things from the last post. Did that make sense? Probably not, but then ‘you know me’.

FIRST, to Alex and D.G. regarding the Battle of the Bands and any kind of list or links. I’m delighted that so many of you have decided to join in and post your own ‘Battles’. I’ve enjoyed reading them and voted at your spaces. This was not set up to be a blog hop and there never was any kind of linky list. Stephen T. McCarthy, Arlee Bird and I are hosting a contest (see the guidelines at the end of each of our BOTB posts), I haven’t linked to anyone outside of the contest because I didn’t want to cause any confusion or hurt feelings at the contest end with the possible winners. BUT, each of us has invited those of you who want to participate to leave a comment that warns tells everyone that you have also posted a Battle. I would suggest the same for the results, especially since some of you have posted your results on days other than the ones we have chosen.

I really have no intention to exclude anyone, just trying to keep it fair for those who have participated from the beginning and are going for the prize. Having said all of that I do hope those of you who have posted in the past, as well as anyone new who wants to, will leave a comment and display you musical knowledge and talents by hosting your very own Battle of the Bands. It might be a good idea to leave a comment at all three sites, so the word really gets around.

SECOND, for anyone who hasn’t gone over to Monkey Throw Dart and read the post titled ‘Operation Syria: Rescuing the Petrodollar’ of September 4, 2013, and viewed the video ‘The Petrodollar Explained’, do yourself a favor and go right now. Well, finish reading my post here first, but then hurry over.

I think this is an excellent explanation of why the US is so anxious to be involved in Middle Eastern Wars Conflicts. I was a tad disappointed that the video ended with talk of revolution. It seems that’s what some people will simply zero in on and not the real ‘meat’ of the information.

To Disc Connected and Arlee, I would say personally, I don’t believe there will be revolution in the US. Not when the masses have been so effectively bought off with a handful of food stamps, cell phones, and shortly, the long awaited illustrious universal health care (can you her me laughing). Most of the folks are happy as clams, buried in the sand. After all, the conditioning has been going on for a long time, and it isn’t about to stop any time soon. At one time people were promised a chicken in every pot, today they are getting pot in every chicken. What could be better than that? Most will gladly turn over their guns when the time comes, and vote to save the world from some global crisis by banning together into that infamous One World Government. All you really need to do, is sit back and ‘wait for it’… or not. The choice may still be yours.


  1. I'm still laughing about the universal health care.
    Crap, what day are we supposed to post Battle of the band results? I think I did mine the following Monday...

  2. I don't know why anyone would complain about free healthcare. I mean, it's free... isn't it?

    The problem is that the vast, Vast, VAST majority of Americans still haven't even yet identified who their real enemy is. How can you have a "revolution" if you don't know who and what you are revolting against?

  3. head in the sand, a bunch of fluoride heads, dumbed down and believing all the crap they are spoon fed. I think it will go that way too, people fear opening their eyes

  4. I liked the end of the video. First step is a contagion of an idea. That shows how important it is to be talking about what is going on so that people understand it. I think that is why Stephen continues to post this stuff on his blog. He is spreading the knowledge so that more people understand what is actually going on. If enough people are educated, there will be a tipping point that requires action. (Not necessarily revolution, but ACTION.) If it reaches the second step, then peaceful disobedience is required. That has worked in the past and could work again. It is only if people remain uneducated and continue to go along to get along, that the last hope is physical confrontation in terms of Revolution as we know it.

    I think that the guy on the video is right... the only people who will even make that stand are the ones who have been trying to spread the word and practicing peaceful disobedience. Everyone else will do like you suggested: give up their guns and vote for a One World Government. They are so stupid that they don't even know what it will mean. Well, they will find out, but it will be too late.

    I am echoing Alex's question... when are we supposed to post the results? I gave people a week to vote before posting mine....

  5. Love your new header. People get involved, wake up and pay attention, when they get angry.

  6. I live my life with reckless abandon now, knowing that free healthcare is just around the corner. Stay tuned for next week's blog entry when we reenact every Jackass stunt ever performed. Don't worry, Obamacare's totally got our back.

    Happy as a clam pretty much sums it up. It's like the idea of cows in a pen. None of them fear the slaughter because they have this illusion that they're well fed, taken care of, and happy. Why rock the boat when everything's "fine"? That pen, if anything, is keeping them safer!

  7. Alex - apparently, you have the same sick sense of humor as me, or good common sense. I'm still not sure which it might be.

    BOTB - Post your Battles on the 1st and 15th of each month. Results and your vote on the 7th and 21st. If you don't want to post on those dates, because of your regular blogging schedule, that's OK, but leave a comment as to what date you will or did post, so people can find it.

    STMc - Hey Baby, there ain't no such thing as a 'free lunch'.

    AND sadly most won't ever recognize the real enemy.

    Pat - Most people have been governed by fear for such a long time, they don't even see it anymore.

    Robin - I hope I answered your questions above

    Holy Ghost Writer - True.

    Donna - Thanks. I think you're right. I do wish people would take the time to educate themselves and think about these things rationally.

    Beer Boys – Ha, ha, ha. Can’t wait for that post. Sounds like a real ‘here, hold my beer’, kind of thing. I hope you tie in EXACTLY how Obamacare is gonna take care of us all. Cows in a pen, I like that analogy. Unfortunately, it’s very close to the truth of the not too distant future. Oh well, I’m sure the people will quite LITERALLY ‘just keep mooing’.

  8. Surrounded by morons and cowards. Not many people are brave enough to follow their own path, let a lone lead an army down one.

  9. I would say your last paragraph hit ye olde nail on the head. The United States are virtually only united in the ability to shrug one's shoulders.

  10. Luckymama - You sound like you were raised by a revolutionary.

    CW - I can picture that collective shrug.

  11. Thank you for posting this about BOTB. You gave a great answer. Commenting on all three sites with a note that one is participating with their own Battle is a very good idea.

    I agree with you about the revolution under the conditions you describe. I don't know if we'd ever see an organized revolution if those things started getting taken away, if certain segments of society felt overly repressed, or if people just started going crazy, but I think chaos like we've seen in Syria is a possibility. I believe a temporary peace will be coming as foretold in Revelations, but that will be short-lived until the true peace on Earth arrives.

    A Faraway View

  12. I am tired of all of this criticism of our Kenyan President!

    All you naysayers should be ashamed!

    I am sure ObamaCare will be EVER BIT AS EFFECTIVE as the bank bailouts, cash for clunkers, and our military efforts to date in the Middle East.

    And I am sure that Obama will be just as forthcoming on Syria as he has been on the matter of his birth certificate, and just as consistent on the issue as he has been on matters such as gay marriage, abortion and US involvement in foreign affairs.

    What's that?

    He waffles more on issues than an IHOP and produced poorly forged birth certificates?

    Oh well, I guess the US is up the creek without a paddle!

    Keep posting the truth-if even one person a day wakes up to it, it is worth the effort.


  13. Wow. Looks like I've been missing out on a lot over here!
