The Mistrial

The Mistrial


Waves in the pool
Placated by lawyers
Warriors and all is cool
Still the poet needs
Love and affection
In the real sense
No heckling and mocking
No spitting and biting
No beaten purple
Not raped by half of
The county gone mad

The Curse on D.C. ...

The Curse on D.C. ...


Dionysian devoted Gods may have put a curse on D.C. as the 100% natural way of defense of Dionysus non-participatory Vs ill wishers & doers

Dionysus came down from the mountains into Georgetown leaving the wild mountain nymphs - who then spied on him for his own goodness & caught

Caught those who looked like catalogue counterpoints of stalking the rugged looking beautiful radiant Dionysus with ill intent


P.S.


No one in D.C. bathtub bubble saw Donald J. Trump coming, huh?! ??? ...Who saw it

We people watch either FoxNews go after H. & O. or MSNBC crucifying Trump & Co. = but nothing! And then out of the gate with all the horrific violence & opioid deaths & corruption and what's Jeff Sessions priority = crackdown on nonviolent marijuana users (e.g. DeadHeads)

Instead of waging a war on "all snakes" which is ecologically disastrous why not educate people on poisonous (dangerous & deadly) snakes Vs. garter snakes (non dangerous)?!?

DHS's Kelly joins Sessions in signaling a hard line on legalized marijuana


White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer caused a stir in February when he implied that the Justice Department might begin to crack down on recreational marijuana use in states that have already legalized it, and seeming to connect it to the opioid crisis.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has decried pot use and has advocated a crackdown. In a speech last month, Sessions said marijuana was only "slightly less awful" than heroin, and he declared at a Senate hearing last year that "good people don't smoke marijuana."
(If lynching was still a law = Jeff Sessions would defend enforcement of it by saying what he always says, "it's on the books - we're just enforcing what's law on the books!" --yet it defies Trump's cries to load his Administration with "the best & brightest" for We The People)



Seventy-one percent of voters say the government should not enforce federal marijuana laws in states that have legalized medical or recreational marijuana use, according to a recent Quinnipiac University Poll. Fifty-nine percent support legalizing recreational marijuana, while 93 percent of Americans support the use 
However an elected congress and senate does nothing to stop this tax payer charade and change the Nixon agenda driven law "Pot as a Schedule One Drug" unlike Canada who actually governs for its people instead of supporting an economy on the backs of those who can't afford to win enough in the stock market to have attorneys fight for their rights 


What's the BIGDeal?! (2)
Oppo media coverage- Biased media reporting 
Either FoxNews is after H. & O. or MSNBC crucifying Trump & Co. = but nothing! And Sessions priority?

Here are 2 things that Happened live on TV during media broadcasts ...  current events ... 
However how have they been reacted to in the ripple effect ???? 

In muted agony, tune out the noise, and then only look at the optics here ... the big picture without sound 

WARNING! There is no winner or loser. ..but one priority bigger than the other to focus on with a magnify glass, unlimited tax payer money and unlimited power (all which may be exposed in sunlight so chose carefully because your investigation and your intent behind your decision making may be on every front page of every newspaper in print & online)


Google the gist of these 2 current events that happened only within the past couple days.
(Reality check today is July 29, 2017):

1. Trump encourages police brutality 
2. Nicole Wallace admits smoking marijuana at Berkeley before working in WhiteHouse

What's the BIGdeal???

The Ghost of Richard Nixon _ new July poem 2017


The Ghost of Richard Nixon

There's a ghost at the White House residency 
Stumbling footsteps with hollow idol eyes
Does the presidency make the man or the man make the presidency 
What are we going to do with all these leaks and all these lies
What is it that makes the presidency so admired and yet so despised 
How are they going to remember me and judge me in history
The legacy of the presidency is at stake 
That's why the president is still awake 
He can't sleep
The ghost of Richard Nixon
Is again ready to meet
Meet and discuss
There's no rush 
The White House Club
The White House Club
Is forever 
My eyes still desire 
We need your help
The others conspire 
We must protect ourself
The presidency is at stake
Its's 3:30am in D.C.
The president is wide awake 
Talking to Richard Nixon

"Sister Grace Marie" _ new June 2017 poem

"Sister Grace Marie" _ new June 2017 poem


Our library at Mt. Gallitzin Academy

Had a door of wood and glass

With a screen door too

The smell of the air with the class

When we sat on the outside chairs

Books containing great stories

People & places & their histories

School friends maybe I dared 

Learning the card catalogues 

A system I still use to this day

Gratefully organizing memories

Muted Sunlight _ new June poem 2017

"Muted Sunlight"


Muted sun at dawn

A bird chirping 

Diesel engine running 

Two sounds trying

Accents from hissing

Car tires and rain

Rolling by moving on

Inside the town

We walk around

Listening to sounds

Washing away the dirty

Remnants of a hurricane 

Who killed a 10 yr old 

In Alabama - Cindy

Lordy it was windy

In water muted sunlight 

Colored bulbs on display 

Inside a store window

Witness to misty rain

And outlines of hills

Clock tower in fog

Recalling he was once

A favored court jester to

The king until he died 

Then he realized he 

Was alone among spies

Feeling so alone and 

Looking for a home 

Every place he roamed 

The time was so real

Nothing sugar coated 

But a paid for trip

And the family seal 

Securing the deal

St. Stephen on stand by

In the garden with a rose

By the muted sun he goes

We Need the Truth & Nothing But the Truth from Jeff Sessions: How Did We Get Here


Dear @SenKamalaHarris @SenAngusKing @SenatorBurr:
respectively please ask AG Sessions if other than term "snake" are  rattlers & garters the same?

A top level law enforcement position as AG Sessions holds to keep US citizens safe must require capacity to distinguish a rattler Vs garter!

Our safety relies on specific classification such as "poisonous" & "nonpoisonous" to protect & prevent people from illness, injury, death!

So, if given the awesome responsibility of protecting people from snakes that can make folks ill & die, why bother w/non-poisonous garters?!

Stop Denying Veterans Medical Marijuana: _ the real intent?

Dear House Republicans and Democrats (@HouseGOP @HouseDemocrats on Twitter):

Fact: 

1). a V.A. medical doctor can not even discuss medical marijuana as an option with veterans.

2). marijuana is considered illegal under federal law for allegedly  having no medical merits.

3). marijuana is proven to have medicinal properties that are beneficial to one's physical, mental and spiritual well being.

4). there have been 0 deaths from merely ingesting marijuana - as compared to heroin, opiods and alcohol

5). marijauna and medical marijuana is now currently legal at the state level in several states

6). herion and opiod deaths from overdose are out of control all over america and in every state in america

7). he U.S. population polled is in favor (well over 50% and well over 60%) of legalizing marijuana and, especially, medical marijuana

8). many veterans are prescribed an unnecessary and even dangerous amount of opioids by V.A. medical doctors

9). many veterans overdose every single day from opioids and heroin

10). Donald J. Trump now President of the United States of America and House Republicans and Democrats (@HouseGOP @HouseDemocrats on Twitter) have the power to propose that marijuana no longer be illegal under federal law

11). a garter snake is non aggressive and non-poisonous

12). a garter snake is a snake but it is classified properly as a non-poisonous snake

13).  rattle snake is aggressive and poisonous

14).  rattle snake is a snake and is classified properly as a poisonous (lethal and deadly) snake

15). If one cannot tell the difference between a garter snake and a rattle snake it could prove to be dangerous, unsafe and deadly -- resulting in death for that incompetent "naive" person and other people being led by that person. Moreover, if one believes garter snakes as dangerous as rattle snakes and wage a war on all snakes giving garter snakes the same "high priority value" and classification as rattle snakes, one is wasting valuable time and resources that could be allocated to the actual threat and real danger risking illness and death

16). Jeff Sessios and Chris Christie vehemently oppose marijuana

"marijuana is only slightly less awful than heroin" - A.G. Jeff Sessions

"good people don't use marijuana" - Jeff Sessions

"I thought the Ku Klux Klan were okay people until I realized they use marijuana" - Jeff Sessions

"crazy liberals are trying to poison our kids with medical marijuana" - Gov of N.J. Chris Christie

"I'm hearing great things about medical marijuana but I don't know about recreational marijuana. Private prisons are good." - Donald J. Trump

17).  in 2018 the Canadian Government will legalize marijuana in the country of Canada for citizens 18 years of age and older (Canada is a legitimate country and recognized as such around the world - including the USA)


Questions:

what's the intent behind this?

1). what's the incentives are there for Donald J. Trump now President of the United States of America and House Republicans and Democrats (@HouseGOP @HouseDemocrats on Twitter) to continue to keep marijuana a schedule one drug?


2). what allows for-profit-prisons to provide incentives for politicians and law enforcement to continue to keep marijuana as a schedule one drug under federal law classifying it with heroin (thus declaring  marijuana as deadly, as dangerous and as unsafe as heroin and other like opioids)?

3). why doesn't Donald J. Trump now President of the United States of America and House Republicans and Democrats (@HouseGOP @HouseDemocrats on Twitter) legalize it and quit deceiving the american public and taking away the rights of citizens who use marijuana wasting precious resources and tax payer dollars?!

Conclusion:

Almost all Republicans in the GOP @GOP hold misguided beliefs like Jeff Sessions and Gov Christie based on politics and not reality thus deliberately denying our veterans medical marijuana

Plan of Action. Simple Steps You Can Take to Change Things Like Law and Policy

Tweet at Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump President of the United States of America and House Republicans and Democrats @HouseGOP @HouseDemocrats on Twitter and demand they stop denying our veterans medical marijuana immediately!

"Life's Blood" _ a new song (lyrics) 5/4/17

I sing a song 
For when I fell in love
I sing a song
For when I made it through
I sing a song
For when I came home

And I pray
For an olive leaf & its dove
I pray 
For how I'm glad i met you
And I pray 
Any of us won't die alone 

How I sing
I sing it for me
Singing for you
I realize it can be
Listening to you
I now can see 
What's really true

take me 
To where the sun goes down
I'll take you
Where I like hanging around
We're gonna do
What doesn't bring us down

High above
The big picture 
Shows the way out
Yes my love
It was worth it
Yeah I have no doubt 

Yeah I have no doubt 
Now what it's all about
Yeah I have no doubt 
Now what it's all about
Yeah I have no doubt 
Now what it's all about
Yeah I have no doubt 
Now what it's all about

Conservative Incompetence Classification Scandal: HUGE Mistake


Conservative Incompetence Classification Scandal: HUGE Mistake

No matter Republican or Democrat! Ask the question, is a gardener snake "slightly less awful" than a rattlesnake? (Then if earnestly trying to eradicate deaths from poisonous rattle snakes why you go into the gardener snake killing business classifying them the same when one is clearly non-poisonous & a non-threat?)

In summation, if one is earnestly trying to eradicate poisonous snakes, why would one waste resources eradicating non-poisonous snakes?! Why

Call your congressman! Jeff Sessions is inadequately inept to serve & protect the people from the real dangers based in reality & not politics and Congress is turning a blind eye!
"Stop wasting our hard earned resources funded by tax payer dollars on non-threats!"

Conservatives rule the House, Senate, Executive Branch & Judiciary so Washington DC can
Fix this classification scandal:)

Poisonous Snakes And Non-Poisonous Snakes Must Be Different And Not The Same Classification 

(You would think our elected leaders and government officials, lawyers, judges from middle America and the south could distinguish the difference in Classification when it comes to a poisonous snake like a rattlesnake Vs. a non poisonous snake like a common garter snake when it comes to the real threats & dangers of each)

The New Media Landscape _ new poem April 2017

The New Media Landscape

Ones and zeroes 
Raining down on me
April showers of spring
Refreshing rebirth they bring
Reminding me of the mountain
Snow and ice melting away 
Rushing down the mountain
The creek full and swollen
Vibrantly offering baptism 
I lovingly entered and swam in
Connected, tuned-in, plugged-in
Walking down back into town
Now being able to see things
To see things the same differently
The outline of Whispering Angels
In the ones and zeroes so alive
First I thought they were pictures 
Yet defiantly opening the doors
Reading me the poetry of the divine
Leading me to sift thru truth and lies
Through tears running from my eyes
Leaving me with a spent lover's smile
Whispering Angels will be back for more
Out of town and in cities guided by ley-lines

Question Regarding American Backdoors?

Question Regarding American Backdoors?


So if there's surveillance run regularly on American citizens wether incidental or targeting for political purposes with all the tactics employed for seamless cover-up including smear & destroy credibility, blame on rogue agents, typos, spying (but only because of the heart strings being pulled by love that jealously drove good actors bad because they had to know everything & everyone in their lover's orbit) etc ...
So our own law enforcement legit and special rogue ops and all have been using sting ray, name checking, turning the switch on, tumbling D.I.C.E.
What makes you think that a Snow'd-in event hadn't captured all of this activity electronically?
Moreover what makes you think that Russian spies aren't also targeting the targets our own law enforcement (and or WH & Media & Private Dicks for Senate & House & lobbyists) is targeting legitimately or illegitimately? ... and why? Is it only to influence votes? ... or is it to influence policy? .... who wins & loses in business, politics, film like a Mephitic playbook?

And, thank you for those who truly protect and serve us, we the people, the everyday Americans trying to be Americans today, everyday!!! You rock and or roll :) keep on keeping on!!!

How to Dismantle Citizens' Rights?

Funny, Natural American Spirit rolling tobacco that provides American Spirit rolling papers when rolled and smoked could somehow through the lens of an observer smell like weed!

As Chris Hayes stated on Morning Joe in closing about his new book when citing a Ferguson police officer which only illuminated by an Obama Admin DOJ intercession "criminals are not to feel like citizens" ...

How to Dismantle a Citizen's Right?!

"I smell weed! ... who is this person? ... the law is the law and weed is illegal. And I smell weed." .. and the camera lens smells weed when the living theatre experiment was actually using Natural American Spirit rolling tobacco with American Spirit rolling papers.

"How one turns a glass of ice water
Like an idea
Of generosity
Until it all seems
Possible"

Loss Prevention _ new February poem 2017

Waking up wanting to sleep more
A predawn stir my dog sniffing at the door
Inside-Outside he sits and sniffs the change
It"s black morning and there's heavy rain
My memory receives electricity to roam
Back to my father at the dinning room table
Working on an opening argument, summation
Closing argument; analyzing the New York Times
How open our California ranch was in the woods
And yet how protected its landscape and gates by design
An occupational medicine department where i was hired at
An independent hospital to work as its only outside salesman
IKEA was one of the companies I was to get back as a client
I had a history with a track record for opening and closing deals
The Coca-Cola Company, Liz Claiborne, HallMark, Baxter Intl.
The list went on my father's Health & Wellness he did on the side
Of his law practice with algorithms in the HRA from Stanford Uni
I tested the online software application that was massive and flirting
Working with a Robotics spinoff company with Artificial Intelligence
Then I moved on to the hospital outside of my father's companies and
New accounts I opened, closed and worked at to retain all in the same
Bayer Corporation president of North America to the Mom & Pop I
Sat down with at the kitchen table and had a beer or two after 5 o'clock
The one thing that loss prevention doesn't address is that of human pain
When someone close to you dies and others you know go too its no game
From my neighbor friend's grandmother from my grandmother's village
To getting the news in a far away city while all alone a long way home
About your own grandmother, your own titan father or the Chief of Police
Living next-door at the time he had to call and say "your nephew is gone
He's missing in the Ohio River it was an accident listen I'm truly sorry John"
Later taking me for a ride in his convertible Thunderbird after he retired and
He passed on too and the funeral home was crowded for Chief Jim Creese ...
I found my way with Business of Poetry and self taught: you can't prevent loss

"You Get What You Deserve."

"You Get What You Deserve."

Rushing waters jettisoned time
Coming up on him frothing & foaming
His toes, feet, legs, sex organ, torso
Arms, neck, shoulders, head & hair water
Surrounding him at Zuma where he lie
Receding with a powerful Malibu tide
Exfoliating his skin while sand dragged back
Into the parade of Pacific aquatic pageantry
All the labels cast upon him dissipated with
Each rough yet gentle wave directed by Moon
He had been drinking on Sunset since Noon
If it wasn't for his tolerance he might die high on
Champagne, Bloody Mary's, banana margaritas
Labels cast to set him in a net by the starving
Unsatisfied appetite of ignorance and hatred
His wanted demise currency like Pieces of Eight
The currents kept taking it away and depositing
Out there in the middle of a dark deep ocean
As the salt sea air tickled his nostrils memories
He could be anywhere and felt that unaware
And so surprised to awake at home so alive
Shifting sands of time took placed labels & traps
Inside a reality called now rendered meaningless
Spanning time from midnight to dawn's highway
In the course of over thousands of rugged years
Kind of a thing designed by Business of Poetry

Bernie Sanders Lives On Via Paris Fashion Week for Men

 Bernie Sanders Lives On Via Paris Fashion Week for Men 

Bernie really did break-on-through but too bad he was targeted & mislabeled & held back by a diabolical systemic ruling class who plays by an alternative reality (if there wasn't such diabolical play in HRC's behalf - see email scandal story & watch & read media reports on H. vs. Bernie - Bernie would have beaten Trump. Do you get it?! Bernie would've beaten Trump).

Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner bigTime: during Paris fashion week, designer Demna Gvasalia drew inspiration from an unlikely source: U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders.

The Obama - Trump Cycle Irony

The Obama - Trump Cycle Irony


Trump's public persona and manipulation of the traditional media via new media is easily labeled with the value = black & white (law & order)
However if anyone sees gray matter it's Donald J. Trump

On the other hand, Obama's professorial philosophical authority positioned him to be the rhyme, reason and rational of the way the world works and exists in gray matter - however - he clearly not only saw the world as black & white he unfortunately projected that on our nation and our world.

BTW, this friend of my father who was around my world when I was formulating my young mind as a poet lawyer marketer forbidden rockstar had a big influence on me:
Nov 16, 1999 - PITTSBURGH, Nov. 17 -- After 32 years at the University of Pittsburgh, Theodore O. Windt, professor and chair of the Department of Communication and preeminent scholar on the American presidency, will retire in April, 2000. ... Windt developed the first presidential rhetoric ...

Psychic Sir Turmeric Mustardseed _ new poem January 2017

Psychic Sir Turmeric Mustardseed

If StoneHedge Would Sway
Alien eyed energy formations
Besides the roots of chords
The alert forewarned physics
Lap rat cooked by psychic energy 
In the cartoon book of calculus 
What form will energy take here 
Alien, human, demon, X-factor 
Cheers to all those benefactors 
Piercing fear with Arthur's sword
Practiced poetry of Merlin's alchemy
