Once upon a time, when I was popular

 

It’s hard to believe, I know, but there were a few intermittent occasions when I was very well received by others.  Like when my boyfriend’s best friend was a dealer of the street drug we then called ecstasy.  I don’t know what they call it now.

But after a semester of that I ‘cleaned up’ and flew straight.

Anyway, it was innocent enough, and then I joined the Peace Corps, still a fresh young thing!

Oh I was so popular then!  That was long before cell phones, but if they were around then, mine would have been buzzing all day and night, woohoo!  And I probably would’ve loved it.

I imagined myself a future bonafide travel writer!

Lots of early clips I’ll someday scrapbook

There’s a lot actually, now lost to time and even cyberspace.
Like this little one giving a wee spanking to officers in Thailand.

I like being insipid and bitchy now and I feel inspired by other previously ‘harmless’ and people-pleasing types who have been donning their snark-spirit.  

From prey to threat, because, when in Rome.

But then, I dared to speak of subjects unpopular, and in a voice too unsavory.  Unsavory is the result of swallowing the bitter pill.  The obvious pleaser contract being:  Coat it in marzipan and holy water and all things ‘light’, or for heaven’s sake, at least smile!

I know how to smile; I have 1,000 of them. 

Teach me how to bristle again, like a teenage hedgehog, at least when they run me over in the night I’ll have humored us all first, authentically.

This Talk Between Aaron & Gabor Maté Is The Best Political Video I’ve Ever Seen — Caitlin Johnstone

It’s good to be disillusioned?!  If it doesn’t feel good, Americans won’t do it, not willingly anyway.

He’s putting a high degree of hope on the notion that the American people will not just exchange one illusion for another, again.

And, again.

The Grayzone‘s Aaron Maté has done an interview with his father titled “America in denial: Gabor Maté on the psychology of Russiagate”, and it is the single best and most insightful political video I’ve ever seen. In 27 minutes it essentially describes the fundamental problems of our times, not just with Russiagate but with world politics…

MMR Vaccine Approved After Only 42-Day-Trials In 1978, Per FDA FOIA Reports — Monitoring the Planned Poisoning of Humanity

“Borderline criminality” the article states, I’d say that’s very generous.  Absolutely egregious lies and manipulation that continues for decades on a docile and completely misinformed population.  What kind of society are we living in?  I’m appalled!

Prime Propaganda

Questioning vaccine safety now means the establishment considers you part of a political ‘hate group’!  Social media is censoring ‘anti-vax’ content, demonizing parents of un-vaccinated children and those who are ‘hesitant’ (meaning asking any questions of officials and not obediently following orders), and deliberately confusing average folks about the role and efficacy of ‘science’ in our society.

If the science is solid it can bare all scrutiny, that’s the point of science!  It’s not supposed to be a dogmatic religion.

So why is all the censorship necessary?  And, can we still call this ‘freedom’?  Obviously not.
