My Mother used to say that C-town (Columbus - meaning Ohio the capital of Nowhere USA) was a sort of test market city for new products and for the mental pulse of the Nation. I suppose that would explain all the fast food merchants and fast food drive thru style aluminum shed building churches of the Heinz 57 varieties of Christendom. If mother was right then look at these photos. What does this say about the future - are we all soon to be Oakies struggling with our own tiny lives and similar Grapes of Wrath difficulties? Angry Oakies who gather hungry in the many Wal-Mart parkinglots in search of food with no money in our pockets, no food in our stomachs and no gas in our cars fuel tanks. Where will we go? To Wal-Mart I suppose because there are no town centers now, no town halls, no seats of Governance that are actually inhabited.
Actually this house is beautiful - the undulating foundation and facades a living example that is a current living example to the way the late and forgotten Ohio painter Charles Burchfield viewed Ohio and the idea of the North around him - an idea which he painted onto his canvass like some time capsule message to viewers in subsequent generations.
This photo looks like places I saw alongside the carcass of the old Mother Road in the springtime in Oklahoma - Route 66 - whom Ronald Reagan ironically killed off like the last of the great American dinosaurs - much like himself. Oklahoma is sublimely beautiful in the spring wildflower season. I travelled a good portion of that historical American highway after it was decommissioned (as if you can put a road and history like that out to pasture like a discarded former President and his wife). I think I got my kicks on Route 66 in 2003. So goes Route sixty-six so goes the Nation. So goes Columbus so goes the future....
At which point when everything you shop for, work for and ultimately live for materially speaking are made in a foreign country - just one other foreign country - namely China - do you yourself wake up and think - Do I live in a foreign country?
Speaking of foreign countries and foreigners - the good, the bad and the ugly - When the German Pope paid us here in North America a visit - and this so feels like an entry in a twenty-first century Poor Richard Almanack Benjamin Franklin of a blog to comment on this - but honestly... How can the German Pope travel around the world and talk of Christendom while Israel has systematically and effectively driven out almost all indigenous Christians from the land of Palestine - namely from good old Palestinian towns the likes of which Jesus Christ himself hailed from - Bethlehem or places like Hebron and all that - I mean what kind of German leader in such a high held and gilded throne dare travel around on behalf of Christendom and ignore even discussing the fact that Christians indigenous to Palestinian Christian heritage sites have been culturally and ethnically cleansed? I'm talking about the very descendents of this worlds first Christians and first Churches. What kind of Zion is that? The seat of the Holy Roman Empire in the form of the Catholic church has always throughout it's history sided with those in power. At one time the Vatican sided with the Germans and the Zionists of the latter half of the twentieth century will not let us forget that. And now a German Pope is siding with the international Zionist Oligarchs and their multi-national corporate will and saying nothing - NOTHING - about the cultural and ethnic cleansing of indigenous Christians trapped from within or driven out of Palestine (To say nothing of all those pesky Muslims who just wont go away as easily). This is as unforgivable as the Zionist war machinations that ruthlessly proclaimed and chanted in May of 1948 about a land without a people for a people without a land. Except there were Christians and Muslims and Jews living side by side in peace more often than not in that land supposeably without a people for a people supposeably without a land. What do you do when recorded history was recorded as a blantant and bold face lie? You go shop at Wal-mart with someone elses money and forget being told as fast possible - that is until finding out that a typically American made invention that your grandfather once had is now proudly made in China. Help me Lord to accept the things that I cannot change.
Today I met and I really have to write this - I had to meet with some officer or agent of sorts regarding my Blogger profile. I was pleased to do so. I wrote that Blogger profile as an excersize in free speech and stand behind every word of it. The fact that I am being tracked down - as if I were in hiding to give an account in person regarding all that is interesting. I felt like I was simultaneously in both the Matrix and the Fight Club. The interviewing officer was charming and very skilled - beautiful and built like an angel or some super human. If only I myself were. At the end of our interview of sorts I said I had hoped I was being contacted for a job - one that would get me out of the endless cycle of financial disillusionment of being trapped on the very short leash of working poor Cheney/Bush II il capitalismo. I should have just offered to trade sexual favors for cash instead. Still I feel like Allen Ginsberg would be proud of me following his example - that he who dies with the fattest FBI file wins - well that's my paraphrase anyway. The interviewing officer suggested I write a book - well I have - I wanted to tell him that the publishing industry IS the Zionist ministry of Propaganda and that I had no chance in getting published for money given what I know about the other history of Palestine that has been erased, erradicated and driven out. I wanted to tell this fine young man of this great nation - the US of A - that the US is only involved in Iraq to contain and redistribute Blowback the US has earned to another part of the world - to a land the Zionists of the Middle East see as the grass being greener than in their own stolen back yards. Or in this case the Oil being blacker and the dollar being bigger greener and fatter in their bank accounts.
Meanwhile the US still pays Is-royale (Zions Israel) 22 million dollars a day and meanwhile Ghettoville, USA gets poorer, sicker, stupider, fatter, angrier, rustier and more dissatisfied with the dirty and discarded empty pie pan they were left with. When will the New Romans turn in disgust and just walk away from New Judea? Obama-nation - Clinton-nation - POW Repuglican McCain and Able nation no matter what little vote you do or don't cast nothing will change the matrix of lies we are fed intravenously.
When I met with those agents I almost expected them to offer me a Red or Blue pill - with me wondering if it was available as a suppository. Either that or I half expected my mouth to disappear and while I was literally bugged via my navel like Neo. Except life is never that interesting even though the truth is always stranger than fiction. The truth doesn't sell and isn't convincing anyway. And who is to say that Osama bin Hidin' won't actually go down in history at some point as some sort of new Paul Revere? Meanwhile I'll be writing the coffeetable book/illustrated Biography of Bin Laden for Children. Now if I could just find a publisher for that one....
DISCLAIMER (as if I really needed to write this) Jews aren't the problem neither is Israel - Christians aren't the problem, Muslims and Arabs aren't the problem - neither is secularism or Atheism - The problem is ZIONISM and only Zionism. History has shown Jews, Christians and Muslims have lived in centuries of peace of prosperity rather than in hatred and suffering. The Islamic nations never drove the Israelites into the sea - But the AIPAC political Matrix of control needs to be turned down if not altogether stopped for enabling Zionisms atrocities to continue.
