1. Police kill THOUSANDS every year in America.
Cube – Good Cop Bad Cop
chart below comparing the total number of police killings in the U.S. with 9 other wealthy nations. U.S. police killed 1,099 people in 2019, while none of the other 9 countries compared had more than 36 police killings in the most recent year with data
2. I have never had a flu shot or the flu.
HOWLIN’ WOLF -DUST MY BROOM – LIVE 1966
Flu killed 75 million from 1918-1919 (37 million per year)
Howlin’ Wolf & Eric Clapton ~”Goin’ Down Slow” &”I Want To Have A Word With You”1970
Covid-19 ostensibly killed <4 million 2019-2021 (1.3 million per year)
Jeff Beck -Truth(1968)
masks were not required in 1918, nor are they needed today.
Derek and the Dominos – Tell the Truth
Mainstream media is the virus. War is the real issue.
Arthur Big Boy Crudup -Who’s Been Foolin’ You
Peace, universal health care and education are the cures.

75 million is not 4 million

“In all societies, public rhetoric involves some measure of lying, and history — political history and art history — is made when someone effectively confronts the lie. But in really scary societies all public conversation is an exercise in using words to mean their opposites — in describing the brave as traitorous, the weak as frightening, and the good as bad — and confronting these lies is the most scary and lonely thing a person can do.”
― Masha Gessen…
3. In the short or long run, isms isn’t the point. Revolution is the cure…
Albert King, Stevie Ray Vaughan – Born Under a Bad Sign
All of us are more than fed up with mediocrity, hypocrisy, lesser-evil, trickle-down, less-than-perfect settling for spending trillions and killing millions for munitions firms and billionaires who pay no taxes and steal what we pay.
This is more than “less than perfect.” This shakedown is organized crime, committed in our names and on our dime because we let it happen and it comes from both sides of the corporate aisles.
Nina Simone: Revolution
“The revolution has always been in the hands of the young. The young always inherit the revolution.”
What is most terrifying… is the American people have surrendered to this betrayal and treason. Too many have been lied to for so long that truth seems stranger than fiction. But with innocents executed at home and abroad… everyday people are under attack and we must stand up and fight back: no fear, no compromise and no surrender. The revolution has begun.
Marvin Gaye – Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)
“If I can’t dance to it, it’s not my revolution.”― Emma Goldman
Ray Charles- Say No More
Remember this: We be many and they be few. They need us more than we need them. Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”
― Arundhati Roy, War Talk
HOWLIN’ WOLF -DOWN IN THE BOTTOM – LIVE 1966
4. The CIA was supposed to be a temporary agency.
Time to pull the plug. The U.S. is using Incerlik to support the Kurds, but Turkey is using the exact same air base to bomb the Kurds. In addition, the U.S. is supporting Shia Muslims in Iraq …but supporting their arch-enemy – Sunnis Muslims – in neighboring Syria. And the U.S. claims to be fighting the war on terror against the exact same groups –ISIS and Al Qaeda – that our closest allies support.
Absolutely insane …Unless the U.S. is really pursuing an agenda in which chaos is the goal.
CIA mercenaries fight Pentagon contractors in unending wars enforcing corporate extraction.
5. Too many are simply mistaken about the Covid fiasco. We can educate ourselves.
DNA Vaccines: Scientific and Ethical Barriers to the Vaccines of the Future
“there is limited knowledge of the effects of these DNA vaccines on humans, since most tests have only been conducted on lab animals. Potential side effects could include chronic inflammation, because the vaccine continuously stimulates the immune system to produce antibodies. Other concerns include the possible integration of plasmid DNA into the body’s host genome, resulting in mutations, problems with DNA replication, triggering of autoimmune responses, and activation of cancer-causing genes.”
The Emerging Role of DNA Vaccines
Pink Panther’s Big Chill
Problems with DNA Vaccines
”There are many potential problems and unanswered questions concerning the use of DNA vaccines. The possibility of insertional mutagenesis is a concern that needs to be more rigorously tested. While there is no evidence that the introduced DNA integrates into the host genome, if it were to occur, it would raise the specter of carcinogenesis; oncongenes may be turned on or tumor suppressor genes inhibited. What if DNA circulated throughout the body after injection and integrated into germ cells? Might subsequent generations express the antigen from birth and develop tolerance, instead of immunity, to the pathogen? Anti-DNA antibody formation and the possibility of autoimmune diseases is another concern. Developing vaccines against COVID-19 requires further studies on gene mutations and how to avoid vaccine failure because of them.“
These are important issues because unlike other forms of gene therapy, which target very ill patients, DNA vaccines are targeted at the young and the healthy. If host cells express antigen for a prolonged period, what effect would that have on the immune response? Could it lead to host tolerance or an exaggerated, damaging attack on tissues expressing antigen? What is the exact nature of the gene transfer and antigen processing? While injections are given intramuscularly it may not be myocytes that are actually presenting antigens to T cells. What cells are taking up the gene? Initially it was thought that myocytes were expressing the DNA product and stimulating a cellular response, but further work indicates that dendritic cells found throughout the body (except in the brain) may be the antigen presenting cells. Because there is a brisk humoral response, it seems that some vaccine product is being delivered to B cells, macrophages or other MHC class II cells.
DNA vaccines against COVID-19: Perspectives and challenges
“developing vaccines against COVID-19 require further studies on gene mutations and how to avoid vaccine failure because of them.”
The U. S. Government IS the CIA, FBI, BIA, Homeland Security, The Pentagon and 16 additional intelligence agencies, services, contractors and mercenaries who enforce illegal extraction, exploitation and extortion… on our dime and with our lives.
Nina Simone Live, 1961-1962
“I’m trying to get people to see that we are our brother’s keeper. Red, white, black, brown or yellow, rich or poor, we all have the blues.”
B.B. King (1925-2015) –
Perhaps blues will reconnect everyone in a place where right and left are directions, conservative and liberal are adjectives and we can join together…
Albert King – Blues Power –
Blues is my religion…. Everybody knows this is nowhere…In the midst of media mendacity and madness, we must maintain perspective… Rather than surrendering to the lowest common denominator…
