Playing Games Of Awareness

I guess I just wonder most of the time, are people really that stupid* or are they just afraid of what others may do to them if others thought they were smarter than the other? Or, maybe, they are not afraid at all, they KNOW they will get fired and choose to not bother being smart in public to their own harm?

Or maybe they think that what they think is something they should keep to themselves?  Then I wonder why they do not choose to share them?  And then I wonder why I wonder WHY anyone else makes the choices they make?  *tangent*

Or, maybe, smart people keep their smart thoughts to themselves because they think they can leverage them later for a paycheck or something?  that money thing always seems to be a powerful organizer of thoughts here on planet earth, i wonder what would happen if everyone shared their thoughts just because it was what it took to save the planet?

*I KNOW.  I know “stupid” is not “A Nice Word” (as in “use your nice words to say hard things”); yet, sometimes, ‘stupid is as stupid does’ is just the plain truth that deserves no trimmings.

 Writing on the Wall

Mumia Abu-Jamal’s essential perspectives on black experience, race relations, freedom, justice, social change, and the future of American society.

“Revolutionary love, revolutionary memory and revolutionary analysis are at work in every page written by Mumia Abu-Jamal … His writings are a wake-up call. He is a voice from our prophetic tradition, speaking to us here, now, lovingly, urgently. Black man, old-school jazz man, freedom fighter, revolutionary—his presence, his voice, his words are the writing on the wall.”––Cornel West, from the foreword

“Greatness meets us in this book, and not just in Mumia’s personal courage and character. It’s in the writing. This is art with political power, challenging institutional injustice in the U.S. while catalyzing our understanding, memory and solidarities for liberation and love. Writing on the Wall can set the nation aflame—yes, for creating new possible worlds.”—Mark Lewis Taylor, Princeton Theological Seminary

Nikohl Vandel:

and with #JadeHelm15 we are well on our way to training our own military to view us citizens as enemy combatants …. hmmmm, sounds like another piece of our past coming back: Germany circa 1925. Seriously, how DO you get your neighbors and friends to bring you into a furnace to burn you alive?!

Boeing FA18 Super HornetThis week, the second-quarter earnings parade starts to really get rolling, and all the top Wall Street firms that we cover are starting to handicap who they think will do well and who they think are at risk. In a new report from Cowen, the firm’s Aerospace and Defense team likes four stocks into the second-quarter earnings prints.

With the economy both in the United States and around the world slowly but surely picking up, the Cowen team is focused on four companies that they feel can not only top current estimates, but that have solid business traction for the remainder of 2015. All four companies are rated Outperform, and they are the top commercial picks.


The Cowen analysts are well ahead of other Wall Street estimates for second-quarter earnings. Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) has been on a downward trend since February and may be offering investors a very…

why people choose to remain unaware, i have no clue. its nice to think that they don’t know how rather than its a conscious choice to remain unaware of all that they could potentially accomplish and be — if they were just aware of their enormous potential even a glimmer of awareness can bring them — i see it in them, i guess that’s what makes this reality so not right for me.

God, I hate to ask this of You

But I have to ask anyway

I need an erection

Give me an erection

An erection as hard as the Kwahu Mountains

To gain the attention of all domineering

To call them to order



I need to replace this flat land

With a gargantuan erection

I need the change like a he-goat on heat needs ‘you know what…’

So give me an erection

An erection to deeply thrust all forms of suppressions

And cause their deaths on minds of demi-gods and goddesses


A voice like mine in flat is boring

A gigantic erection will suit me well

I don’t want to be an a ‘aboduaba’ or ‘akuaba’ any more

Give me that huge erection

To gain the mandate;

And flog disrespect

Jail irresponsibility

Cage abusers

Castrate he-goats who defile hymens

Ooooh Father! Give me that erection
