Found this on reddit and it made me sick

Visually stunning. Loved it. Then started lokking at it closer, and got depressed. Then literally, I started to feel ill. Like I was going to throw up, looking at it.

I am thinking (hoping)

that whoever created that was being sarcastic.


It may be more like revealing!

My eyes are not the best. At first glance, without clicking on

the link, I thought I was looking at the official symbols for each state and wondered why it would make you sick. Then I clicked on the link and my stomach turned.

That picture sums it all up in an interesting work of art. What can I say, Michael, except, thanks for making me feel sick, too?

“An Honest Man’s Pillow is his Peace of Mind”

Every one of those patches represents not only the enormous state the government has become but it also represents the avenues of graft and corruption. I am convinced that EVERY government program is corrupt to its core and the payoffs reach into every tentacle of private public business and it will only change once the collapse in the dollar occurs.

A perfect example of this is a book “Fooling Some of the People all of the Time” It is the story of a hedge fund manager that dared to question the valuation of a publically traded company (Allied Capital)who primary business was to facilitate loans through the Small Business Association.

Like mama told me when I was young…..be a simple kind of man


Happy 4th?

Man there are actually 50 emblems on there! anyone able to identify them all? there are bunch I don't recognize

I tried. I blew it up and

I tried. I blew it up and squinted my eyes trying to read them, but then got dizzy and felt ill like Michael. Didn't make it. I bailed. Went for solace in Eminem... :D

my odd reaction

The image immediately made me think of this...


Michael's comment then reminded me to say this...
[to the tune and tempo of Eminem's "Mosh" :D]

Lord, make me a channel of thy peace;

that where there is hatred, I may bring love;

that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness;

that where there is discord, I may bring harmony;

that where there is error, I may bring truth;

that where there is doubt, I may bring faith;

that where there is despair, I may bring hope;

that where there are shadows, I may bring light;

that where there is sadness, I may bring joy.

Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted;

to understand, than to be understood;

to love, than to be loved.

For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.

It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.

It is by dying that one awakens to eternal life.

Of course, then I had to listen to this...

Eminem: Lose Yourself


Listen to the stress inherent in the song. "You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow, cuz opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo."

And that heavy beat.

Contrast that to ten years later, in 2013

here's one for 2023...


I saw a glint of gold on a well worn road
I saw a twisted back bent beneath a heavy load
Throw all your diamonds away, they won't mean a thing
When the angels lift our eyelids in the morning

Tonight might be the worst for the freezing birds
Waiting for the sun to come and warm the icy earth
They'll take their weary heads out from underneath their wings
When the angels lift our eyelids in the morning

The hunchbacks in their lonely towers
Toll the bells at the witches hours
And watch orange eyes ablaze
Vanish into the alleyways

The snowstorms in our tv sets
The black forests beneath our beds
They sit and wait where no one hears
To play the drums down inside our ears

When the bottoms of the clouds all start turning red
There's a bird upon the branch swaying wildly in my head
Just waiting for the sun and for another chance to sing
When the angels lift our eyelids in the morning...
