October 2011


Our small production company is one of the small voices in the vast sea of far right conservatives in what has to be the reddest state in the union and a virtual theocratic republic with a one party political apparatus.

We just recorded a local band that has written a great song that explains the Occupy Wall Street movement and anger felt by the 99% of Americans.

The Ego of Economics or Ice Cream for Breakfast

So I had this thought today. Large corporations are basically a person that has a well defined Id and in some cases Ego but no Super Ego.

Many people argue that corporations act only to make profit. Therefore they aren't evil just neutral. They say we shouldn't expect them to do anything altruistic and we can't blame them too much when they do something wrong.

Using classical Freudian theory that is a very well developed Id. If you replace the pleasure principle with profit motive it matches perfectly.

The Planet is Warming at an alarming rate, NOTHING can justify Obama's Keystone Pipeline.

Obama's approval of the Keystone Pipeline is a mortal blow to the planet and a hideous miscarriage of the public interest regardless of the justification.

The Koch Brothers thank you President Obama.

Paulsons 5 billion

I could be mistaken, have been before, but on todays show I thought I heard you speak of Hank Paulson making 5 billion last year. Should I have heard John Paulson.

Brown Man in a Yellow Tie

Herman Cain wears the greatest color combinations. He is not only snazzy, but hilarious! One thing we can use is dashing tailoring and humor in the Whitehouse.

Maybe we should stop calling it "The Whitehouse" anyway with all its off-color history- wasn't that just a slap in the face to the red man and the black man to begin with? Whitehouse, Whitehall, White Castle Burgers. It's all the same intent.

nobody's talking about phase I or phase III any more. So enjoy the ?Super Bowl...Until Phase V

It must be pretty obvious to those in the 'Occupy everything movement' that Fox has been a master at manipulating the "distracted, ignorant masses"! Through its "News", sports talk, and entertainment channel. Our friends at Fox have done a great job at lowering the standards of decency in terms of how "you's people" treat each other. But that's the plan. Like the sports talk morons who call everyone "retard" and publicly humiliates anyone who objects to our process of desensitizing "you's people" ("angry white cane guy")...and it works-

A Very Scary Halloween 2011

{{{I wanted to blog something REALLY scary and frightening this year for Halloween. I thought of the usual icons of Halloween: Frankenstein, Ghosts, or perhaps Freddie Cruger of ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ fame but when I saw the article 'Various '7 billionth' babies celebrated worldwide' I thought... 'THERE AIN'T NUTTIN SCARIER THAN THAT"!


A wiser one man than me once said that ppportunities are what you make of them. Another wise fellow also said "where there is chaos there is opporunity" - or was that just in some fil? Regardless the world is showing a distinct lack of vision and clearly fails to see the bigger picture. We are giving in to a hierarchical system when this should be seen for what it is -the illusion of the grand wizard of Oz and his phoney-ass system.

Would a Democratic President Wield Power as Ruthlessly as Trump?

Thom plus logo Interestingly, the current divide in the Senate gives us an insight into how powerful a genuinely progressive Democratic president could be, and how much he or she could get done. As we saw yesterday, the Republicans voted repeatedly to participate in a cover-up of Donald Trump's crimes.
