Let’s be clear! This forum is specifically designed to blow off the angst of its author, first and foremost. Having said that, the bitch of the day concerns a curious phenomena that has come down of late of moderating bad headlines with the all too convenient death of a media personality. Today, it is the (supposedly) much beloved Robin Williams. A good bed sheet to divert attention from the obvious J-media blackout of the killing fields of Gaza and Iraq. And don’t forget the Ukraine, our untended border and of course the official shipping of the Ebola virus back to these shores. Then of course it would be inappropriate that our most celebratory black ‘Nero” is out on another vacation binge at tax payers expense. The list grows along with the posthumous profits [MJ, HL, WH, PSH, RW, etc., etc., etc.].
“What a great racket, right?”
Vacuum the wealth out of those who were the backbone of the nation, set all manner of chronically incurable plagues loose and deplete the available stock of the best and the brightest of American manpower by sending them to far off shores to provide debt collection for the sixteen largest too big to fail banks in the world. I don’t think that the ruling cult of Moses-ites could have done any better trimming the wings of Pharaoh in myth and in legend. Joseph and Esther would be proud of their modern generation of Hollywood based charlatans, if they ever existed at all. Which brings me back to the concept of kill a star, create a crisis, take advantage of the emotional lull.
If you haven’t figured it out, the most insidious and powerful opiate of them all involves a mix of fame, money and the illusion of power. All these are wrapped up in the mystique known as Hollywood stardom. The cult of martyrs from the playbook roster of all those who have come with meteoric success to the insider’s game known as Hollywood and gone out on a slab as of recently are legend. A phenomena almost as curious as the every omnipotent ‘lone gunman’ and the takeover of four jets with box cutters that conveniently defy the laws of physics.
It is always much easier to go along to get along so ‘THEY’ say between every commercial break on TV and the movies, and of course the Internet. But what is it getting you but a slow form of genocide by incremental diminished. Consider yourself alone and without help, the loudspeakers blare within your implant consciousness. Amazing how disease stricken aliens with good drug cartel connections have become the latest poster children while those paying the bills have been demeaned to tacit barely tolerated insignificance?
The whole situation is just begging for the proverbial, “enough is finally enough” and a rapid unscheduled trip to the temple with sleeves rolled up to toss the moneychangers out on their ear. Take a tip from that old now forgotten prophet, and his now out of vogue, “old timey religion” who can’t find a house on his birthday to inhabit anymore.
“Lends at interest, and takes profit; shall he then live? He shall not live. He has done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon himself.” – Ezekiel 18:13
-and that other marvelous little diddy –
“And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables.” – John 2:15
