Revolution

I found this video on a YouTube rocommended list and have spent the  last several hours absorbing the music, poetry and story of Iyeoka Okoawo.   I am blown away by Iyeoka Okoawo and this song. 

Revolution

Written by: Iyeoka Ivie Okoawo

We play follow the leader
Were hoping to learn something we never knew
They say one 2 3 red-light 
So you stop believing the green light will come for you
So you wait and we wait for the red too...
Somehow disappear

And we stand so paralyzed by these... 
Times that predicts our greatest fears
But deep inside you know you gotta go you hear
Echoes of revolution lingering in the air
This counts for more than just being alive
More than...
Step aside, wait for the green to take you there

So rise my friends take my hand 
Lets all go to this promised land
Pick up a pen
Make your demands
Tell them how...
Freedom can reign again
Unchain your voices sing me a song
That will live on and on and on long after we're gone
songs like
la lal lalalalallala
la la la lal lalalalalalalaaaa

Then comes the rap and this woman does it like no other.  Defintely worth the six minutes.


What is rebellion?

See the previous post: Rebellion versus Revolution: A Spiritual Approach.

Question – Beloved Master, What is Rebellion? and What is the difference between reaction and the action of the rebellious man?

Osho – The first thing to be understood is the difference between rebellion and revolution. Revolution is an organized effort to change the society forcibly, violently. But the trouble is, you cannot change the society through violence, because it is violence that is the very life current of the society. That’s why all the revolutions have failed. And there is no possibility of any revolution succeeding, ever.

Rebellion is individual, nonviolent, peaceful. It is out of love. Rebellion is not against something, but for something. Revolution is against something, but not for something. Revolution is so much engaged in being against, it forgets for what all this fuss is being made. It is anger. But anger cannot create a better society. Rebellion is not oriented against the society, but is oriented towards a new man, a new humanity.

Revolution is fighting with the past.
Rebellion is meditating for the future.

I said rebellion is out of love, silence, understanding, compassion — all the qualities that make man divine. Revolution is based on all the qualities that make man again an animal. Because rebellion is individual, there is no need of any struggle, of any fight. The society will not even be bothered by one individual being different than others. But even single individuals meditating, loving, hoping for a new sunrise, can create the possibility of a new society. Their very presence will be enough to transform others. Their love cannot fail — love never fails. Their understanding, their intelligence, their compassion are bound to succeed.

But rebellion has not been tried. Revolution seems to be easier, because against such a big society you need a big organization. But the moment you become organized you become the same type of society. You become just a reflection of what you are opposing. You stand before a mirror: the reflection in the mirror is your reflection, although it is opposed to you.

So just being opposed does not mean that you are really different; the methods are the same. The old society depends on violence; the revolutionaries depend on violence. The old society depends on enslaving people; the revolutionaries depend on the same. The old society depends on beliefs; revolutionaries also depend on belief. It makes no difference whether your belief is in THE HOLY BIBLE or in DAS KAPITAL.

And one thing very significant to remember: if the revolutionaries are going to win they have to be more violent than the old society, more cunning, more clever, more political, more cruel; otherwise they cannot win. So, in fact, in the name of revolution more violence is becoming victorious, more cruelty is becoming victorious; more slavery, more submissiveness is demanded by the revolutionary party. You can see it happen in all the revolutions.

The Russian revolution has been the greatest revolution. The czars who ruled Russia were cruel, were violent — the very idea of ruling over somebody is violent. The communists dethroned the czar, but they could manage to do it only because they proved more violent. Nineteen members of the czar’s family were simply butchered, and one of the members, the youngest, was only a six-month-old child. He had not done any crime against anybody — for what was he being punished? Just because he belonged to the royal family? Was that his responsibility? They wanted to destroy the whole family so there would be no possibility of any royal blood of the czars in the future. But the people who did it certainly showed a heartlessness.

Joseph Stalin became the leader of the revolutionaries. Stalin was not his real name, “Stalin” was given to him by the people. It means “man of steel.” And certainly he proved to be a man of steel, with no heart. He killed almost one million people after the revolution. Just suspicion was enough; there was no need for any trial, for any investigation. The communist party suspects that somebody is against the revolution — there is no proof, but the man has to be immediately destroyed.

The Russian revolution has proved one thing absolutely: that czars were never so violent; they had never killed one million people. And the society was not so deeply enslaved — that’s why the communist revolution was possible. Now in Russia no revolution is possible, people are completely enslaved. Even to think against the status quo today is betraying the religion of communism. People are even afraid if they dream anything against the government. They don’t tell the dream to their wives, to their children, because nobody knows…. The system that came into force after the revolution is such that husbands are spying on their wives, wives are spying on their husbands, children are spying on their parents. Almost everybody is spying on everybody else. And these people are rewarded. If a child comes to the communist party office and informs that his parents have been saying something against the government, he is rewarded. He is sent to a better school, given a better scholarship. Of course, his parents disappear.

Now there is no possibility to revolt against the communist regime in Soviet Russia. No freedom of expression, no freedom of getting together, no freedom of thinking — is this revolution? It is going backwards. Rebellion is a spiritual phenomenon.

It is not against the society as such; it is simply the intelligence that shows that this society is dead, that this society is incapable of giving birth to a new human being, that it is spent, that it is almost on the verge of global suicide. It needs compassion; it does not need anger.

The rebel can do only one thing…. He is not going to organize, because the moment you organize you have to follow the same patterns as the society you are going to oppose; and you have to follow the same language, the same patterns, structures, that the society has practiced for so long.

There is an ancient Chinese saying: “To have a bad friend is not as bad as to have a bad enemy.” Looks strange, but it has great meaning in it — because if you have an enemy, then sooner or later you will have to follow his tactics and strategies to fight with him; there is no other way. If you want to be victorious you have to be far ahead of him in his own methods. Hence, I always say, friends you can choose without much consideration, but enemies have to be chosen with great consideration, because they are going to change your character.

The rebel has no enemy. He simply has a vision that the old is finished. It need not be fought against, it is dying itself. Fighting with it is to give it life. Just ignore it. It is already on the deathbed; it will die of its own accord. Don’t give it energy by fighting.

The rebel can do only one thing: he can transform himself into the new man, he can become his own vision. That is the only proof that his vision is not a dream. The rebel starts transforming his vision into a reality.
I want you all to be rebellious.

That’s why I don’t believe in organization. I don’t want you to be another religion, another ideology, because that will be simply a repetition of the old patterns. You can be together without any conditions, without any bondage, just out of sheer friendship; no ideology dominating you, but just pure love — because you are on the same path, discovering yourself, finding out whether the vision of a new man can become a reality or not. You can help each other, you can support each other, you can encourage each other.

There are moments when encouragement is needed, because to change — and to change totally — is not an easy job. Many times the mind wants to fall back into its old patterns, old habits; therefore, the commune. The commune is not an alternative society. It is not another organization: it is something totally new. It is a loving togetherness of fellow travelers who are all working on themselves. But five thousand people all working on themselves creates an atmosphere of great encouragement — you are not alone. And if five thousand people are trying, there is hope. You can see people ahead of you, you can see people behind you — on all the rungs of the ladder. That makes it clear that human beings just like you are carving the way, changing themselves. It becomes an individual challenge for you not to be a coward and fall back into old habits. You cannot fall back into old habits, because five thousand people are watching you and they are very optimistic about you. They have great hopes for you, they see that the sunrise is not far away.

Yes, it is very dark right now, but to find the light you need not go back. To find light you have to go forward. The darker the night, the closer is the morning; and a few have reached the morning. You can see the sunlight in their eyes, you can see the flowers of their being blossoming. You can feel the fragrance that is released. So it is only a question of a little more patience, a little more courage.

But rebellion remains individual. Rebels can live together; they can create an atmosphere, a milieu, a buddhafield where awakening becomes easier. But they are not organized, they are not bound to any belief. They are free individuals; out of their free choice they have joined these seekers of the sunrise.

You ask me, “What is the difference between reaction and action as far as the rebellious person is concerned?”
The rebellious person has no reaction; he has only action. The revolutionary has only reaction; he does not have any action. The difference is significant.

Just a few days ago I received a letter from an old woman who is the president of the Atheists’ Association of America. She must be the oldest atheist in the whole world, because I used to know in India one man, Gora, who was her follower, and he was old himself. She has opened, in many countries, associations for atheists.

On some television she must have listened to my words — that there is no God — and she was immensely happy. She wrote the letter to say, “You are certainly a man of great courage. Although I am very old, I would like to come and see you, meet you, talk to you.”

I told Hasya to write to her that she is welcome, but she must understand that I am not an atheist: “If she is coming here thinking that I am an atheist because I have declared there is no God, then she will be disillusioned. It is better to make it clear.”

To me, atheism is reaction, reaction against theism. There are people who believe in God, millions of people; a few people react to it, and they start disbelieving in God. This is a reaction. You can check it very easily by a simple method. If all the theists disappear, if there is no theism at all in the world, can atheists exist? They were secondary, they were simply a reaction. When there are no religions and nobody is saying there is God, what is the point of disbelieving in God? You will look a little silly. With the death of theism, atheism will die automatically. That means it was only a shadow, it was not a reality in itself. A reaction is a shadow.

When I say there is no God, I am not saying that I disbelieve in God; even for disbelief, God has to be. Whether you believe or disbelieve, that is your approach, but for both God is needed. For the theist he is needed, for the atheist he is needed. I am simply saying there is no God, has never been. All theists and all atheists are wrong. Those who believe are wrong, and those who disbelieve are wrong.

I don’t think that old woman will come. I would love her to come, because in her whole life she may not have met a man who is neither theist nor atheist. Because there is no God, there is no point in being either one. I think it is simply stupid: if there is no God, then a person wasting his whole life establishing atheist associations all over the world — this is sheer wastage of one’s life. If there is no God, then why bother? But no, this has become her whole life. But just denying, just disbelief cannot make anybody blissful.

And my statement that there is no God is an action, not a reaction. I am not speaking against anybody; I am simply giving expression to my own experience. I have searched for him within myself, and I have not found him.

I have found, instead, godliness.
I have found eternal consciousness.
I have found immortality.
I have found eternal light — but no God.

I don’t think this woman has ever thought of looking inwards. She is simply fighting with the theists. Those theists are idiots; in fighting with them you are bound to become an idiot. Reaction cannot take you farther than those you are reacting against.

The revolutionary is reactionary. He is against the society; he is against its economic structure, he is against its political way. He is against so many things — his whole life is negative. It depends on being against this, against that, against thousands of things — there are so many no’s in his life. But you cannot live a life of benediction, bliss, out of thousands of no’s.

A single yes is far more powerful than a thousand no’s. The no is empty. It shows your anger, it shows your violence, it shows your destructiveness, but it does not show that you have anything creative that you are going to contribute to life and existence.

Action means, something not related to anything but coming out of your own silence, out of your own spontaneity. The rebel knows no reaction, he knows action. Action means yes. The rebel creates; he gives birth to himself. He becomes a new man, he heralds a new age. He opens himself to all possibilities, he allows himself unknown dimensions. Not against anybody — it is simply a growth, just like a rosebush is growing. Do you think it is growing against the rocks? Do you think it is growing against anybody? It is growing, not as a reaction; it is growing because growth is its nature. It is growing to blossom, to bring its potential to actuality. It is a process of actualization.

Action means the process of actualization. Reaction is simply hate, anger, jealousy, violence, destructiveness. Those are not the qualities to be valued. So, in my vision, the revolutionary has no value, only the rebel. And you can see…. Socrates is not a revolutionary, he is a rebel. Gautam Buddha is not a revolutionary, he is a rebel. Heraclitus is not a revolutionary, he is a rebel. And these are the greatest heights humanity has reached.

Revolutionaries are on the same ground as those whom they are opposing. They have to be on the same ground to fight with them. The rebel is not fighting against anybody. The rebel is making himself free so that he can grow, grow to his own destiny. The rebel has a beauty; the revolutionary is a political, social criminal. The rebel is the only holy man, he is sacred.

But the moment you start organizing rebellion you change its character, it becomes revolution. It is no longer the same thing. That’s why I had to insist again and again…. The tendency to organize is very deep rooted, because it is millions of years old. And to be alone needs guts.

To be alone… but you can be together with people who are also trying to be alone. Your togetherness is just a friendship of two fellow travelers. There are no conditions. It does not make you a Christian, a Hindu, a Buddhist. You remain yourself, the other remains himself.

And this is the only respect expected of sannyasins: do not destroy the dignity of the other person. He is as valuable in existence as you are. There is no need to impose your ideas on anybody. Who are you? What authority have you got to impose your ideas on others? You can share, you can tell, you can expose your heart. And if the other feels that something falls in tune with him, and chooses it, it is his decision, not your imposition.

Revolutionaries are trying to impose their ideas on others. They are doing the same thing as the old religions have been doing. That’s why I categorize communism as one of the religions; there is no difference. It does not matter that communism does not believe in God, because there are older religions which do not believe in God: Buddhism does not believe in God, Jainism does not believe in God. So that is not a problem. A religion is something that you try to impose on others. It is an effort to convert people, it is always missionary.

A rebel is never a missionary, he is always a friend. He can invite you to his innermost being and, if you see something that suits you, that is helpful to you, that is going to nourish you, make your search easier, you can choose it. But it is out of your freedom — nobody is converting you.

That’s how it should be in the commune. Whatever I say to you, you need not believe it. You have just to be available to it, so that you can decide. The decision has to be yours. And if it suits you, suddenly if it rings a bell in your heart, then I am no longer responsible for it: the bell is ringing in your heart. But if it doesn’t suit you, my love for you remains the same, because it is not based on converting you.

And, in fact, each individual has to be unique. That is the prerogative of human beings — to be unique. And all the religions, all the political ideologies, they have all tried to destroy that privilege. I want to encourage your privilege. On no account should your individuality be interfered with. Your freedom is absolute, and the highest value.

Rebellion versus Revolution: A Spiritual Approach

I live in a country that underwent a revolution 34 years ago.  The original ideals of the revolutionaries were (mostly) pure and now that they have power, their ideals have been replaced by a lust for money and power.
 
I know that things in the US and the world will change radically in the next few months, but unless we change within, then nothing will change except the faces of those who are in power.
 
I am an an anarchist at heart, which I supppose is one of the many reasons that I can identify with Oshos's (sometimes contradictory) words.  It seems that most people do not want personal freedom, but instead a white knight to save the day.  We are looking for leaders instead of looking into our selves to solve our problems, trading one master for another.   I found this  comparison between rebellion and revolution quite fitting for our present time, even though the words are more than 30 years old.  Nothing will change unless we change.
 

Nobody Really Wants to Be Free – Because Freedom Brings Responsibility

"Everybody wants freedom as far as talking is concerned, but nobody really is free and nobody really wants to be free, because freedom brings responsibility.  It does not come alone.  And to be dependent is simple: the responsibility is not on you, the responsibility is on the person you are dependent on.

"So people have made a schizophrenic way of life.  They talk about truth, they talk about freedom, and they live in lies, they live in slaveries – slaveries of many kinds, because each slavery frees you from some responsibility.  A man who really wants to be free has to accept immense responsibilities. He cannot dump his responsibilities on anybody else. Whatever he does, whatever he is, he is responsible."  -- Osho

Power

"The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. "  - Ayn Rand

“We are in power. Nobody will deny it. By virtue of that power we shall remain in power…We have no words to waste on you. When you reach out your vaunted strong hands for our palaces and purpled ease, we will show you what strength is. In roar of shell and shrapnel and in whine of machine-guns will our answer be couched. We will grind you revolutionists down under our heel, and we shall walk upon your faces. The world is ours, we are its lords, and ours it shall remain. As for the host of labor, it has been in the dirt since history began, and I read history aright. And in the dirt it shall remain so long as I and mine and those that come after us have the power. There is the word. It is the king of words–Power. Not God, not Mammon, but Power. Pour it over your tongue till it tingles with it. Power.”  -  Mr. Wickson, The Iron Heel by Jack London (1908), chapter 4

"Poor people have access to the courts in the same sense that Christians had access to the lions."  - Justice Earl Johnson, Jr.


Absolute Tyranny: Executive Order 13603

“Where today are the Pequot? Where are the Narragansett, the Mohican, the Pokanoket, and many other once powerful tribes of our people? They have vanished before the avarice and the oppression of the White Man, as snow before a summer sun.”

“Will we let ourselves be destroyed in our turn without a struggle, give up our homes, our country bequeathed to us by the Great Spirit, the graves of our dead and everything that is dear and sacred to us? I know you will cry with me, ‘Never! Never!’”

“We gave them forest-clad mountains and valleys full of game, and in return what did they give our warriors and our women? Rum, trinkets, and a grave.”

- Tecumseh [Tecumtha] (1768?-1813),  Native American Chief of the Shawnee

“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.”

“What is human warfare but just this; an effort to make the laws of God and nature take sides with one party.”

“A common and natural result of an undue respect for law is, that you may see a file of soldiers, colonels, captains, corporals, privates, powder-monkeys, and all, marching in admirable order over hill and dale to the wars, against their wills, ay, against their common sense and consciences, which makes it very steep marching indeed, and produces a palpitation of the heart.”

“There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.”
 
- Henry David Thoreau, Philosopher and Author

 

After Obama was elected in 2008, my Democrat-affiliated friends breathed a sigh of relief.    I told them that Obama would be worse than Bush and most of them mocked my views.  Every time I have pointed out Obama's atrocious, unethical, anti-human rights, anti-Constitution, anti-liberty behavior, I am called a racist, Bush supporter, Republican, Tea Party crackpot and tin foil hatter by the same people who attended anti-war protests when Bush was gearing up for the illegal, unconstitutional war against Iraq.  

If Bush had signed this Executive Order, surely some of the people who voted for that disgusting pile of human excrement who currently resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue would have protested.  But where are their voices now?  I am sadly amused that so many people sighed a breath of relief when Mitt Romney lost the latest round of political charades.

Executive Order 13603 allows that at a time of the President's choosing, the Federal Government may take over:

  • "all forms of energy"
  • "all forms of civil transportation"
  • "all usable water from all sources"
  • "all commodities and products that are capable of being ingested by Human Beings or Animals"
  • "health resources - drugs, biological products, medical devices, materials, facilities, health supplies, services, and equipment"
  • "Induction" of Citizens into the military against their will.

Say No

Say NO by Wolfgan Borchert

This poem was written in 1947 a few days before Borchert died at the age of 26. The following is an adaptation of the German version, first prepared by youth participants at the vigil for peace and justice at the WCC Assembly in Vancouver in 1983.

Wolfgan Borchert  20 May 1921 – 20 November 1947) was a German author and playwright (Trümmerliteratur) whose work was affected by his experience of dictatorship and his service in the Wehrmacht during the Second World War. His work is among the best examples of the Trümmerliteratur movement in post-World War II Germany.

You.  Man at the machine and man in the workshop.  If tomorrow they tell you you are to make no more water-pipes and saucepans but are to make steel helmets and machine-guns, then there’s only one thing to do:

Say NO!

You.  Woman at the counter and woman in the office.  If tomorrow they tell you you are to fill shells and assemble telescopic sights for snipers’ rifles, then there’s only one thing to do:

Say NO!

You.  Research worker in the laboratory.  If tomorrow they tell you you are to invent a new death for the old life, then there’s only one thing to do:

Say NO!

You.  Priest in the pulpit.  If tomorrow they tell you you are to bless murder and declare war holy, then there’s only one thing to do:

Say NO!

You.  Pilot in your aeroplane.  If tomorrow they tell you you are to carry bombs over the cities, then there’s only one thing to do: Say NO!

You.  Man of the village and man of the town. If tomorrow they come and give you your call-up papers, then there’s only one thing to do:

Say NO!

You. Mother in Normandy and mother in the Ukraine, mother in Vancouver and in London, you on the Hwangho and on the Mississippi, you in Naples and Hamburg and Cairo and Oslo – mothers in all parts of the earth, mothers of the world, if tomorrow they tell you you are to bear new soldiers for new battles, then there’s only one thing to do:

Say NO!

For if you do not say NO – if YOU do not say no – mothers, then: then!

In the bustling hazy harbour towns the big ships will fall silent as corpses against the dead deserted quay walls, their once shimmering bodies overgrown with seaweed and barnacles, smelling of graveyards and rotten fish.

The trams will lie like senseless glass-eyed cages beside the twisted steel skeleton of wires and track.

The sunny juicy vine will rot on decaying hillsides, rice will dry in the withered earth, potatoes will freeze in the unploughed land and cows will stick their death-still legs into the air like overturned chairs.

In the fields beside rusted ploughs the corn will be flattened like a beaten army.

Then the last human creature, with mangled entrails and infected lungs, will wander around, unanswered and lonely, under the poisonous glowing sun, among the immense mass graves and devastated cities.

The last human creature, withered, mad, cursing, accusing – and the terrible accusation: WHY?

will die unheard on the plains, drift through the ruins, seep into the rubble of churches, fall into pools of blood, unheard, unanswered, 

the last animal scream of the last human animal -

All this will happen tomorrow, tomorrow, perhaps, perhaps even tonight, perhaps tonight, if – if -

You do not say NO.

2012 US Presidential Primaries and Ron Paul's Natal Chart: Very Positive Trends

From my friend Robert Hitt's website, AstroEcon.

I want you to take a look at a VERY significant astrological chart that will be "one of those days" .. so to speak

3142012trine

This chart shows a VERY exact grand trine involving 4 planets.. VERY rare that one sees an aspect pattern involving 4 planets that is SO EXACT.  The planets are Mars Pluto Venus and Jupiter. This is extraordinary positive energy.  We MUST use this as the opportunity of our lifetimes and NOT allow it to be misused for nefarious purposes by the dark side. 

To me this alignment has the potential to be a game changer..  I have had some recent discussion with my friend web bot clif about this time period..  He has told me that his data goes into release language AFTER this grand trine passes and does NOT come out of that condition for a year or more thereafter..  I can say that is not a surprise knowing what I know about what events land on the timeline around this time.. You see the republican Primaries will be in full "super" stage in this time slot so our next president is going to be determined in MARCH 2012 and not in NOVEMBER 2012.. Anyone with the exception of Ron Paul is going to ensure another 4 years of obummer 

Lets face the demons who have run the republican party into the ditch for decades and let them know IF NOT RON PAUL then the party of Lincoln should be put into the same grave as the whigs party (which the republicans replaced) in the mid 1850s.  I have a hard time watching all the road kill being thrown at the voter from the major media to keep Ron from winning.. THE TIME IS NOW to let the masters of the universe ( the 1%) know that WE THE PEOPLE are in charge of our future. This March grand trine lands EXACTLY on Ron Pauls natal chart in such a way that it makes me think he will be unstoppable. Should the republicans cheat him I suspect Ron will run as a libertarian and thus destroy the republicans for good..  And by the way IF Ron has to run as a libertarian then the ideal choice for VP is JESSE VENTURA.  And yes indeed the grand trine lands in Jesse's chart extremely well also. 

Let me explain a few things about astrology that most do not know.. The future is NOT pre determined but SHAPED.. The windows for certain types of event probabilities are set up on the timeline ahead by an astrological ORDER (astro - logic) We collectively create the specific events manifesting in the specific probability field window BY OUR THOUGHTS AND INTENTIONS IN THE PRESENT.. .  Clif tells me he is picking up a WAR manifestation during this March window and yes I do see that also........  BUT the war is ONLY a POSSIBLE then ... and NOT a reality YET until it manifests........... IF WE COLLECTIVELY ALLOW OTHERS TO DETERMINE OUR FATE
  WE THE PEOPLE CAN AND MUST CHANGE THAT OUTCOME NOW. 

 THE MAGIC OF INTENTION AND VISUALIZATION CAN AND MUST BE EMPLOYED BY THOSE OF US WHO KNOW IN ADVANCE OF THIS WINDOW WHAT IS POSSIBLE THEN.. TO DEFUSE THIS WAR AND MAKE THIS MOST IMPORTANT ASTRO OF 2012 MANIFEST AS A RON PAUL VICTORY. 

SEE HIM AS THE WINNER.. EMOTE THAT FEELING OF RELIEF AND JOY THAT WE HAVE FINALLY TAKEN OUR COUNTRY BACK FROM THE BRINK DURING THIS TIME WINDOW. 

To quote the bible.. "pray as if your prayer has already been answered"

Nothing stirs up angst and gets me in revolutionary mode like listening to the music and lyrics by Corporate Avenger, a Native American Rock/Metal/Rap band.  The lyrics are intense and the beats very catchy.  A lot of people rave about Eminem, but I think Corporate Avenger writes better lyrics and has more power.  With songs like, "Christians Murdered Indians", "Taxes Are Stealing", "I Don't Fault the Police", "FBI (got a) File (on me)", "The Bible is Bullshit" and "Jesus Christ Homosexual", their album "Freedom Is a State of Mind" ("Freedom is a state of mind.  A mind is a ste of being.  Stay the fuck out of my my mind and my being!") is definitely one of my all-time favorites.  I hope a few people are inspired to not only check out their music, but to pay them for the music.  They are an indie band making great music.  Please support them.

Here are the lyrics of a few of my favorite songs.

TAXES ARE STEALING

Listen you fuckers you screw heads here's a man that would not take it anymore a man who stood up against the scum, the cunts, the dogs, the filth, the shit here is some one who stood up.

Taxes are strong-armed robbery the collectors of taxes funnel the majority of funds to police and intuitions counter productive to spiritual advancement.

Well taxes are stealing and I get the feeling that were getting fucked in the ass

They take what they want to whenever they want to

And our needs they always come last.

They lie, they cheat, they steal from you and me.

They lie, they cheat, they steal from you and me. 

Their hands are in our pockets, they're bleeding us to death

They fucking keep on taking till there's nothing fucking left.

It's a federal invention, they set the goddamned rate

It's a little paper portrait with a legacy of hate.

They're numbing all our senses with their bullshit and their lies.

It's no goddamned secret it's done right before our eyes.

And if you don't cooperate they'll lock your ass away

With the very fucking money that they fucking took away.

Well taxes are stealing and I get the feeling that were getting fucked in the ass

They take what they want to whenever they want to

And our needs they always come last.

They lie, they cheat, they steal from you and me.

They lie, they cheat, they steal from you and me.

The IRS was not there the other day when I was unloading truck after truck into that hot fucking warehouse

The IRS was not there the other day when I was pulling weeds in the fucking hot sun

The IRS was not there when I needed money to pay my bills, but they sure as fuck were there on Friday to take almost half my pay again and again and again and again!

Your constitution, the laws that they've made say that they can tax your income so they do it every day.

The IRS policemen they take and take and take, we've got free Masonic symbols in a free Masonic state.

Lest you forget about your cozy little home, the very place were you live in but you never fucking own

It's the craft of the creator, we act out their design

A society of secrets with the television mind.

Well taxes are stealing and I get the feeling that were getting fucked in the ass

They take what they want to whenever they want to

And our needs they always come last.

They lie, they cheat, they steal from you and me

They lie, they cheat, they steal from you and me.

The IRS policemen they take and take and take, we've got free Masonic symbols in a free Masonic state.

Lest you forget about your cozy little home, the very place were you live in but you never fucking own

It's the craft of the creator, we act out their design

A society of secrets with the television mind.

Well taxes are stealing and I get the feeling that were getting fucked in the ass

They take what they want to whenever they want to

And our needs they always come last.

They lie, they cheat, they steal from you and me.

They lie, they cheat, they steal from you and me.

"We're basically existing in a fake world, 

A world which was created by man, 

The creator gave us the earth, 

Put us here in this universe, 

He gave us our minds, 

He gave us all these tools to exist and survive with. 

The war on drugs is a war on people... 

And peoples rights are being violated 

And your incarcerating and caging human beings 

Often times who are simply victims of the sickness of addiction, 

Who have become sucked up in this giant war on drugs, 

(FBI got a file on me) 

Which in fact is a crime against humanity. 

(FBI got a file on me) 

The war on drugs is a war on people. 

FBI got a file on me. 

Too many cages in the land of the free. 

Join us now as we make our plea. 

Set all drug offenders free. 

FBI got a file on you. 

Think they don't but they goddamn do. 

All seeing eye is watching you. 

Everything you say, and everything you do. 

FBI got a file on me another red man in a stolen country. 

And I gon't give a fuck about the U.S.A. 

Just give me back my tribal ways. 

FBI got a file on you. 

I don't think how they taught me to. 

They rule by fear, I'm not afraid. 

Just give me back my tribal ways. 

FBI got a file on me 

FBI got a file on me 

FBI got a file on me 

FBI got a file on me 

FBI got a file on me. 

'Cause I speak of what I see. 

Crimes against humanity. 

The drug war fought upon the free. 

FBI got a file on you. 

Had one on John Lennon too. 

And don't forget Peltier, 

Why is he not free today? 

FBI got a file on me, 

Too many cages in the land of the free, 

Join us as we make our plea, 

Set all drug offenders free. 

FBI got a file on me 

FBI got a file on me 

FBI got a file on me 

FBI got a file on me 

Set all drug offenders free! 

The war on drugs is a war on people... 

The war on drugs is a war on people... 

It's a really sad state of affairs 

When a human being's freedom is treated as 

Nothing more than an asset or liability. 

Prisons are big business in this country. 

The war on drugs is nothing more than a war on people 

...It's a bullshit war, It's a war over money! 

 FBI got a file on me, 

Too many cages in the land of the free. 

Join us now as we make our plea. 

Set all drug offenders free. 

 FBI got a file on me 

FBI got a file on me 

 FBI, CIA, IRS, DEA 

Civil rights all gone away. 

(Civil rights all gone away.) 

FBI, CIA, IRS, DEA 

Civil rights all gone away. 

(Civil rights gone away.) 

FBI got a file on me 

Set all drug offenders free. 

FBI got a file on me 

Set all drug offenders free. 

The war on drugs is a war on people." 

 

I DON'T FAULT THE POLICE

Freedom is a state of mind,

A mind is a state of being,

Stay the Fuck out of my mind and my being.

I don't fault the police

Cause the people that run got of my short leash

I don't fault the police

Cause the people that run they divide and deceive.

I don't cry when the police die cause they probably deserved to,

Run around with a badge and a gun

And they god damn fuck with everyone.

Enforce rules made by fools,

Violence and fear there tools

They dress to impress with there laws they arrest

And they leave us powerless

I don't fault the police

‘Cause the people that run got of my short leash

I don't fault the police

‘Cause the people that run they divide and deceive.

We have created a reality based on fear where a terrorist a gangster or a police can take away your freedom or your sense of security at any time.

I don't cry when a Gangster dies ‘cause he probably deserved to,

Run around with a bag and a gun

And they god damn fuck with everyone,

Enforce rules made by fools

Violence and fear there tools

They dress to impress thinking fear is respect

And they leave us powerless.

I don't fault the police

‘Cause the people that run got of my short leash

I don't fault the police

‘Cause the people that run they divide and deceive.

A society that incarcerates there own population for any minor infraction where there is 100's upon 1000's of pages and pages of laws and reason for the district attorney and the local jurisdiction and the justice system to put it's entire force to removing an individual from his family connection and make him separate from the tribal earth.

I don't cry when a terrorist dies cause he probably deserved to,

Run around with a bomb and a gun,

And they god damn fuck with every one.

Enforce rules made by fools,

Violence and fear there tools.

Bombs fall from the sky

And a mom as she cries as she watched her babies die.

I don't fault the police

Cause the people that run got of my short leash

I don't fault the police

'Cause the people that run they divide and deceive

 

THE BIBLE IS BULLSHIT

In the history of the human race

Of all the inspirations for the separation of man from his true tribal culture

Of all the inspirations for the acts of violence from one man onto another

From one nation onto another, from one oppressor onto the oppressed

There is no more guilty party and inspiration than those books known

As the Holy Bible, the Koran, and the Bagavad Gita to spread separation of mankind

The Bible is bullshit, the Koran is a lie

The Bagavad Gita did not fall from the sky

These are the books that were written by men

They've caused wars, now follow if you can

They took away our love and gave us fear

Tried to make us hate the one who put us here

Then they took our sacred songs and made them wrong

Then they took away our prayers and gave us theirs

The Bible is bullshit, the Koran is a lie

The Bagavad Gita did not fall from the sky

These are the books that are written by men

They've caused wars, now follow if you can

First they created sin so they could win

Then they built the cages they could put us in

Then they took away our tribes and gave us jail

Then they took away the Earth and gave us hell

The Bible is bullshit, the Koran is a lie

The Bagavad Gita did not fall from the sky

These are the books that are written by men

They've caused wars, now follow if you can

It's time for you to love one another

It's time for you to recognize your brother

It's time for us to stop killing our mother

It's time for us to care for each other

The Bible is bullshit 


U.S. Government Printing Office Needs 350,934 National Detainee Handbooks Printed by 29 April 2011

Just a coincidence that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Office of Detention and Removal Operations needs these in the next two weeks, right?   Maybe they plan to round up immigrants without green cards, with offers of citizenship if they go to Libya/Iran/Ivory Coast/Pakistan/Iraq/Afghanistan/Columbia to fight for oil  freedom Israel.

U.S. Government Printing Office Needs 350,934 National Detainee Handbooks Printed by 29 April 2011

April 19th, 2011

Update: U.S. Government Printing Office Deletes Solicitation Page and “Jacket Number” Specification Document

I thought that might happen, but not after just a few minutes.

So:

Here’s a screenshot of www.gpo.gov/gpo/bidopps/bidopps.action?region=chicago before it was taken down:

GPO Solicitation for Hundreds of Thousands of National Detainee Handbooks Needed by 29 April

 

 

It’s also still visible in Google cache as of this writing.

And here’s a Cryptogon mirror of the Jacket Number: 735-412/413document.

—End Update—

Ok, probably nothing, maybe something.

The U.S. Government needs 350,934 National Detainee Handbooks printed by 29 April 2011. Here’s a 2007 English version of the National Detainee Handbook. I don’t know if that’s the same document as what has been ordered below.

The GPO solicitation went out on 18 April and the handbooks must be delivered by 29 April. Is eleven days a short time for something like this? I have no idea, but clicking on “Jacket Number: 735-412/413” brings up a specification document, which states the following:

TIME CRITICAL:
Notify Ron Boyum at 312-353-3916 x 17 or at rboyum@gpo.gov of the delivery status in the morning 2 days prior to the first shipment to meet the at destination delivery date. [sic]

This is a time-critical order. For the purpose of this contract, the provision in GPO Contract Terms Pub. 310.2 (Rev. 6-01) for schedule extensions does not apply. No automatic extensions of schedules will be made. All interested contractors must commit to the original schedule. Shipments must be made by a carrier that will guarantee delivery at destination within the specified schedule. Carrier’s “targets” in lieu of “guaranteed” deliveries will not be acceptable.

They seem pretty serious about needing the handbooks by 29 April.
