Literate Readers and Cunning Linguists,
Having just overheard a version of the evening news we report about the lack of change in Congress as regards all thing screwed up in this country (USA). That’s what they said on TV so it has to be true, unless the internet says it is not. A lot of people have been coming to read the blog on “What Would Allen Ginsberg Do…” so we suppose they may be gearing up.
We thank the anonymous but googlable Ms. Buckly of the Parkridge, NJ, school district for raising the question by instructing people to read about Ginsberg and Occupiers. We welcome the opinions of all readers. Even Chris Christie.
It is enough to make a person say fuck!!!
The F-word used to be considered the second most foul word in our insult slang and that of other nations. However, this view is skewed. We see the word fuck all over the place. It is on walls. It is in books. It is in the movies and sometimes slips onto network television. This being no outlaw word, we have adopted it as a national treasure.
LOBBYIST, on the other hand, fails to appear scrawled in paint under bridges and on railroad cars, carved into K-12 school desks when they were made of wood or on daring tattoos.
Lobbyist is fuck times ten. It requires a lobbyist to truly fuck us all. They pay our elected officials on both sides of the aisles…the cash concerns do not have party lines. Money crosses every line. Money redraws lines (see US Constitution).
Oddly, but concidence is oft the case in these things, the word ‘lobbyist’ has the same amount of letters as the word ‘occupier’. Not getting many dispatches from Occupiers lately, but admittedly ignoring mainstream news, we reckon they recline and plot while waiting for the next Presidential election. They regard linguistics lightly, obviously, since they do not see the difference between ‘fuck’ and ‘lobbyist.’
Maybe they do – but if so, they stand guilty for not encouraging their mates to REGISTER TO VOTE AND VOTE OUT EVERY INCUMBENT CANDIDATE ON THE TICKET EVERY TIME.
DO NOT VOTE ‘FOR’…VOTE ‘AGAINST’…THIS IS WAR!
It may not seem like a big thing. Votes have been rigged like the Bush family did in Florida. It is easy to rig a vote in a state where many residents are retirees, minorities and indigents. It is a whole different thing to have a groundswell of votes come in where even missing chats are not enough to argue over.
USE YOUR VOTE ALREADY!!!
The vote is the big lie. Nobody profiting from it wants their constituents to know how much they stole from them over the years. Some old members of Congress need to be wheelchaired in and shaken awake to vote. The dubious question of whether they even know which Bill the are voting on scares us.
This way the lobbyists lose the longtime good old boy connections which are treasonous, really. We pay taxes which pay elected officials in Congress and the House of Representatives. They pledge to serve us. Then they pocket a wad from an old pal and sell us down the river to buy a new boat for themselves.
We do not mean to disparage the Occupiers. We may have in the past but in recently speaking with activists like Paul Krassner and the late Amiri Baraka, both of whom said the group had good intentions if nothing else, we reformed but still wish for an organized front that will properly plan and target the bad guys in the only way that cannot be disputed en masse.
Go for it!!!

Gentle Readers and Reasonable Minded Thinkers,
We see here a photo of Allen Ginsberg, taken by Jerry Aronson, maker of The Life and Times of Allen Ginsberg, which is reviewed (with four more exclusive photos) in Beatdom Issue 9. It was taken at Grant Park, Chicago, in 1968 during the infamous riots at the Democratic National Convention.
Ginsberg chanted to distract the protestors from marching because he did not want them becoming active due to his presence and ending up with their blood on his hands because he incited them to challenge armed police.
Allen Ginsberg is universally-known as a good and kind man. In Aronson’s film, a comment is made by counterculture icon Ed Sanders about how to decide if a course of action is right or wrong. He offers that the best choice is to ask ourselves, ‘What would Allen do?’
Today, someone took umbrage to the fact…

I have a busy day and so, no writing for me. Here is one you can figure out for yourself while you screw around at your desk, waiting for five o’clock.
Follow the headlines and info below and create your own rant. It starts with a whale and ends with one, if you include the pic of Governor Cartman, er Christie.
We have a morally corrupt Constitution-breaking governor-elect headed for Harrisburg and his role model is a boorish fool who denies global warming and says there is no evidence while the scientists keep piling it up.
Readers in Pennsylvania, are we not, in the vernacular, fucked?

Dearest Readers and Beloved Enemies, Our buddy Gil, the director of the Office of National Drug Policy, tells us he is disappointed that illegal drug use in America had risen nine percent in 2009.
Gil says that 21,800,000 americans abused illegal drugs in 2009. That accounts for 8.7% of the population 12 years old and older. We at CFYSA would like to take the time to thanks all you newcomers for showing support! Old Gil is not proud of you but his pay will probably go up nine per cent as he hopelessly looks for a solution to your actions. If he ever finds a solution, his job will be terminated.
When the ranks of the unemployed were almost reaching 10%, a scant one per cent above our number, those lucky jobless bastards got all sorts of attention from Obama, Wall Street and, last but never least, the…

This is a short one but we did want you to skip back here a few blogs and remember the warning we gave about flagrant fatso Gov. Chris Cartman Christie putting former Newark Mayor Corey Booker in a NJ senator slot after the death of another old cheat. Just skip back about five or six posts and look for the fat guy.
We could not help but notice the cutesy-ootsey bald head getting off a plane with our Manchurian President, Baccarat Obama, a week ago or so.
Do remember that the basic cause for all this concern is what the late but great Amiri Baraka told us about Booker wanting to sell Newark’s water and water rights to a corporate entity and other devious reason Booker is not a good man.
We wondered why he was on the plane with the Chief but we did a quick search to see the once close friends have had a rift between them. In fact, one thing we found was a Huffington Post report noting that Booker spelled Obama’s name wrong on a list of NJ delegates. The two are at odds but how did the city mayor get to be at odds with the Prez so fast?
Do you wonder why?
Just remember that we warned you first when looking for guidance in the future…

Red Beans and Weiss…new LP by Chuck E. Weiss
take a deep trek through american roots music, knuckleheads, pee pee houses, nazi death camps, buddhist teachings and more!!!
sample it and see!!!!!!!!! forget about Tom Waits and Johnny Depp being on the project – Chuck is the Man!
i heard this online before it was released and ordered it. it is almost like a companion to ‘Extremely Cool’…maybe better…
this is such a fantastic record, you don’t know what to be most fascinated by next.
some songs are searing R&R and some, like ‘Shushie’…would be a wonderful soft song for just about anybody to cover…others just blow you away, like ‘Bomb the Tracks,’ which comes on like an all out rock and roller and addresses cultural issues like why we didn’t bomb the tracks the trains used to take Jews to concentration camps in WW2 (which IS a good question)…the lyrics here are unreal…he sums up the basic tenets of Buddhism in two lines of lyrics in ‘Knucklehead Stuff’ …’Kokamo’ comes on so slick and smooth it takes several hearings before you realize it starts out with an oral ‘dismembering’ (my word not his) on Lovers Lane…or how about Stalin drawing futuristic pictures of Huckleberry Hound while Winston Churchill befalls an ill fate???…yep, not only is it all here…it’s all here and more – rocking to the hilt and is an excellent choice for Best Record of 2014 in all classes!!!!!
