And recently with the topic of the latest mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School shooting and the Parkland school shooting that’s been in the news a lot lately, I have been coming across references that JROTC students were slain in Florida high school shooting.  And then the thought occurs to me, has anyone ever addressed the topic of JROTC being instituted in the USA nations schools, that the idea that one is trained to dress up in army outfits, stand in line and use guns as kids in schools across the nation may not be a good thing, that children are being recruited into this Junior Reserve Officer’s Training Corps army thing simply because it may be a class in school that one may be required to take. And as far as I know, this JROTC school army drills recruiting thing has existed in schools since the beginning of time and seemingly for generations to come. And I have blaghed about the topic of  gun control and gun violence on this blagh many times before in times past and I think what makes this school shooting different is that the student survivors of the Parkland school shooting decided to speak out against gun control and start a movement to end gun violence with National School Walkoutscalling out lawmakers in NRA styled ads and organizing March for our Lives events. And according to one of those photos that finds itself posted above, mass shootings have happened in malls, churches and concerts as well seemingly with no end in sight.  Is another world possible, Occupy the NRA.  And what, if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State.


A Holy War Again

Dome-of-the-Rock (1)

And so I turned on the news today and there one of the many headline news of the day read, “Israel Attacks Targets in Syria After Iranian Drone Enters Israeli Airspace and Jet Crashes“, and as usual, world war III and all of those other religious fanaticism thoughts of Israel, Jerusalem, The Middle East, the holy land, holy war, that Dome of the Rock and the Temple Mount that seems to be written in bible prophecy somewhere start coming to mind, here on planet earth, enough to make me want to sign into this blagh again in another attempt to maintain web 2.0 social media user generated content for this blog and my other blagh whenever blaghers block possible. And so I thought to post another one of those The The Prophecy of John of Jerusalem posts again, as I seemed to have posted on this blog many times in times past. Is Israel becoming a nation?  The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. – George Orwell.

The Prophecy of John of Jerusalem VIII

“When the millennium that follows this millennium ends, Men will have finally opened their eyes.
They will no longer be imprisoned in their heads and cities,
But will be able to see from one end of the Earth to another, and understand each other.
They will know what makes one suffer hurts another.
Men will form one huge body of which each will be a tiny part.
Together they will form the heart of this body.
There will be a common language spoken by everybody, and thus, finally, a glorious humanity will come into existence…
Because Woman will arrive to reign supreme;
She will govern the future and decree Her philosophy to Man.
She will be The Mother of the Millennium that follows the millennium.
She will, after the days of the devil, radiate the gentle sweetness of a mother.
She will, after the days of barbarity, embody beauty.
The Millennium that follows the millennium,
Will metamorphose into an age age of lightness:
Men will love each other, sharing everything, dream,
And dreams will turn into Reality…
Thus Man will have his second birth.
Spirit will possess the mass of men,
Who will be united in brotherhood.
So an end will be proclaimed to barbarity.
It will be an era of a new strength of belief.
The dark days at the beginning of the Millennium that follows the millennium, will be ensued by days of jubilation:
Men will once more find the righteous path of humanity,
And Earth will find harmony once more…
There will be roads that connect one end of Earth, and the sky to the other;
The woods will once more be dense, the desert will once more be irrigated, and the water will once more be pure.
The Earth will be like a garden:
Men will take care of every living thing,
And he will clean everything he dirtied,
He will understand that the whole of Earth is his home,
And he will think with wisdom of the morrow.
Man will know everything on Earth and his own body.
Diseases will be cured before they are manifested,
And everybody will cure themselves and each other.
Man will have understood that he has to help himself to stay upright;
And after the days of reticence and avarice,
Man will open his heart and his purse to the poor;
He will define himself curator of human species,
And so, finally, a New Era will begin.
When Man has learnt to give and share,
The bitter days of solitude will be at an end.
He will once more believe in the Spirit,
And barbarians will once more be unheard of…
But all this will happen after the wars and the fires.
And this will arise from the ashes of the burnt Towers of Babel.
And a strong hand will be needed to bring order to chaos, and to put Man on the right path.
Man will learn that all creatures are bringers of light, and all creatures must be respected.
Man, in his lifetime, will live more than one life,
And will learn that the Light never goes out.”

Please let us know if we can assist you in any other way.

Climate Change Is Real












And if must blogger say, I have written, or typed about the topic of the weather and climate change on this blog before. And in the midst of reading about gun violencethose St. Louis protests over police violence and other headline news of the day, I have also found myself reading about the weather gone wacky again with extreme weather and unprecedented record breaking weather events seemingly becoming the norm starting with that massive ice shelf that broke off of Antarctica a while ago like a scene from straight out of the movie The Day After Tomorrow, and all of these earthquakes, wildfires and hurricanes in that country of North America and planet earth this past month, between Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico,MexicoCalifornia.OregonMontana, Idaho and the Caribbean Islands all being affected by natural disasters of earthquakes and wildfires or from being underwater from hurricanes and tropical storms with names like Harvey, Irma, Jose, Maria and beyond this past month, and it all has me wondering all of these theories of if Jesus Christ wants to return again or if Revelations XII  is here or about to be here or something, or if the earths magnetic poles have shifted or if that planet Nibiru is headed towards or passing by planet earth, or if it is the beginning of armageddon and the apocalypse and the first five minutes of that movie The Day After Tomorrow, with I think all of these weather disasters seemingly having started after that great American solar eclipse, the first solar eclipse in 99 years, and every eye shall see him… and not to mention those 7 Theories About The World Ending On September 23, 2017 According To Astrology, Planet X Predictions, And The Bible or simply is the world ending or about to end or if the end is near as it always has been since the beginning of time I think. There are no words I can blogger think of to describe this all except to say Mother Earth is upset and climate change is real.





Hey again bloggers, or whoever could be reading this blagh. And so this post finds itself another one of those attempts to maintain web 2.0  social media user generated content for this blagh and my other blog whenever blaghers block possible. And so that topic of racism has been in the news a lot lately. So much that it has spawned a bazillion or more Facebook event invites having to do with racism, fascism and beyond. And in my own thoughts, someone said to me at Union Square Park the other day as I was vending those DecorForU #blacklivesmatter, #notmypresident, #occupywallstreet, #nopolicestate, #berniesanders, #yoga and #berooklyn necklaces, magnets, key chains and pins for $2 each with that Black Lives Matter sign that I usually display that creates dialogue and conversation, amongst the most comments being “Yes they do” or “All lives matter”.  Though again, just this past week someone, a couple of people asked me within the span of an hour the same question that sticks in my mind, “When did racism begin?”, both of these people asked. And it was sort of the same answer with both of these people. Since the beginning of time, in the bible or something, when Satan was cast out of heaven or when he betrayed Adam or Eve or something and this discrimination was passed on through Jacob or John or Abraham or one of those disciples in the bible or something throughout all his descendants and generations. And for some reason I find their theories believable. And then there is that comment again from that Black Lives Matter Art Show at Northside Festival this past season or so from another person who commented on that topic of Black Lives Matter, or I guess racism, how can something be changed that has been instilled in us, in humanity, since the beginning of time when black means bad, dark, evil and white means good, light? These questions I am unable to answer, only to say is another world possible? No one is free when others are oppressed.  And then there is this t-shirt I read somewhere with the words Black, White, Red, Yellow, Brown….. Human. And what, if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State?

Everybody wants to get on the Van Gogh boat. I think, as in that Basquiat movie quote from that Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat mural that finds itself posted above that was found on the streets around 10th and Bedford Avenue during that BLOCK PARTY at Northside Festival in New York City this past weekend.  And Northside Festival gave me the opportunity to drag that Black Lives Matter artwork out of the closet again to do another one of those Black Lives Matter Went To Northside Festival art shows, or part of it, or some version of it as I did at their festival last year and to post on this blog that Black Lives Matter Art Show went to another event, or something like that. And the rain held off and the sun felt as if it was a thousand degrees on this Northside Festival 2017 weekend in New York City.
And this years BLOCK PARTY at Northside Festival read something like as follows:
June 10 – June 11
Bedford L Stop
1PM to 6PM
Northside Block Party // Williamsburg Walks 

On June 10th-11th, Williamsburg’s main drag – Bedford Avenue will transform into a public park (from Metropolitan Avenue to N.12th Street). Temporary wall units for live painting, interactive installations and workshops, and engaging sculptures will be staggered throughout the blocks for the community to enjoy! See you at the Block Party! 

Come see the work of these talented artists and exciiting business!

And someone said to me on this day as they pondered those thoughts on Black Lives Matter, a particular thought that stuck in my mind, that “Black means evil and white means good”, and that this thought has been instilled in us since the beginning of time and can this ever be changed?
And I seemed to have taken a photo of everything but those Your Thoughts on Black Lives Matter thoughts that were written on the banners themselves on this day, though some of those thoughts in addition to other Your Thoughts on Black Lives Matter thoughts written on banners on this day if I were to read them were:
1.  We are alive
2.  Yes, Black Lives Matter, sktop the diversity chatter!
3.  life is a gift, a black person life is just as important as anyone else!!!
4.  Beyond the race on life is on life.
5.  ALL Lives MATTER!!
6.  All lives can’t possibly matter until Black Lives, animal lives are not being slaughtered every day.  Black lives, black justice are 5 times likely to a longer sentence that white & black women are in terms. Research!
7.  (In response to 6), America forgot what it stood for!  We will get this back! RESIST!
8.  It’s a shame we even have to say it!
9.  Black lives Matters isn’t just about black people. it represents every culture & every minority that is the underdog. – Vi2
10.  The Black Lives Matter Movement is the voice of the survivors – Wordsconnect

12.  Let’s all come together As All Lives Matter – Real people see all colors. Black Lives Matter….
14.  #Don’t Be Horrible Love always wins!
15.  BLACK Lives Are Sacred

19.  black people are beautiful, amazing, INCREDIBLE.  – Logic. PLD
20.  #BLM  Too much to say.  We all need to open up and create a community unafraid to face discomfort & stand up for another.
21,  Lets all come together as All Lives Matter – Real people see all colors. Black Lives Matter….
23.  Be Proud oF being BLACK – Ellie
25.  Equality by Force Dump Dump

32.  De Segregate the NYC schools Be TOGETHER! LEARN TOGETHER
33.  Black Lives Matter!
34.  Everyone deserves the same thing
36.  Everyone should be treated like human
37.  No individual can be truly, fully happy, free and at peace until every single person is.  We are all more united, more unbreakably one than cultural systems would have us believe.  Thank you, thank you for your heart – ful work, BLM, for fighting the good fight.  for not just POC, but for the soul of humanity.
39.  White people stop being afraid.  Your lives matter but you’re not getting killed because of your skin tone!  This movement is important. NEEDED
40.  White silence is violence.  Madelinefiorio
42.  ALthough racism exists, so does LOVE, HONOR, Respect and acceptance.  We need more of this to conquer hatred!  #LOVE
43,  Maylin not racist
44.  My life, your life, our life.  We share the f*cking earth.  It’s not your’s.  It’s -OURS-.
45.  Diversity is what makes the world wonderful.
46.  Close your eyes and you will see we are all humans.  One Love xx
47.  Yes!  THEY HAVE ALWAYS MATTERED (Peace, Justice, Love to all people!)
48.  Let there be peace on earth.  Let it begin with me.
49.  MISSY
And on this day finds itself as Occupy Wall Street day one thousand and something, I think.  And those global revolution Occupy Wall Street and all things police brutality and beyond Black Lives Matter movements are still moving fast, I think.  Have a great Black Lives Matter Art Show @ Northside Festival day and more.
