Like it or not, life goes on after the farce ended the way it did on Tuesday night

Sap flowing through the trunk heels the wounds
of a tree to help its healthy growth
Termites infesting a big tree eventually uproot
it over a long period of time

I call it a farce, but not because Obama, Romney and/or Paul are clowns.

When will ordinary Americans ever learn that they are the clowns? It's solely their fault that things unfolded the way they did in the last four years and beyond.

Throughout the duration of the farce, the mainstream Americans were attributing things that went wrong to their opponents.

Other people were essentially no different. Not a few on the fringe were self-righteously saying a "huge awakening" was going on on the part of the general population and that an American Revolution was on its way. But a huge awakening from what? Actually it was nothing but a delusion on the delusion.

These sick people are unaware that they are just projecting to the other side the problem they can't solve themselves. After the election results came out, these good guys are still insisting the revolution was aborted because bad guys in the media prevented people from fully awakening.

Now the farce is over, but practically all Americans still make believe others should change before they do themselves. Isn't it about time to have dropped all these jokes? Such an alibi exercise hasn't worked before, and will never in the future.

Don't take me wrong, however. I'm not instigating these chicken-hearted people to kill the most unscrupulous one of the three, the Kenyan monkey perhaps, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination. Time and again it's been proved they have no guts needed for such a bold move, and they have too many excuses for their inaction. As I kept saying since 2008, what they need to do, instead, is a serious soul-searching to know exactly who they are. But beware, you can never define what you really are by a half-baked ideology you support or oppose, or religious values you believe or disbelieve in.

Until they define themselves in the right way, they can never internalize any issue facing them. Neither can they emancipate themselves from the delusive idea that the problem always lies with others, while the fact of the matter remains they are the problem themselves.

Only through a serious effort for self-examination, they can find a life-size view of things surrounding them. Then they will stop talking big while actually acting very small.

It's also important to know there's nothing wrong with acting small if they base their plans on a down-to-earth vision about the future, i.e. what nation should emerge in the North American continent after the inevitable collapse of the American Empire overseas and the likely implosion of homeland U.S. It's far better than just grumbling about their fellow countrymen who are in a hypnotic state while doing absolutely nothing with them. Hopefully they will define their role as that of sap, or termites.

Some may want to change their country just like drops of sap help the tree grow over a long period of time by constantly transporting nutrients through its trunk. Some others may choose to be termites infesting the heartwood of a tree or wooden structure and eventually cause it to break down.

Whichever approach they take to make a difference to their country, these processes may progress at a glacial pace. But I hope the Internet will help expedite them if they know how to leverage the worldwide web which was originally meant to be an enabler of change as is true with any "disruptive" technology. It's a different story, however, if they still do not realize "alternative media" and "social media" are, more often than not, a change-disabler.

Or.....if they can't tell the difference between web-search and soul-search, they might as well join these Japanese macaques who are conditioned to instantly jump at anything given to them.

Life goes on even after the farce ended the way it did on Tuesday

A couple of years ago, I read a botanist's report on why the boreal forests in Northern Canada were dying. His study concluded that it has to do with the aluminum oxide being sprayed by chemtrail jets. Apparently, the aluminum is ingested by the trees, weakening them, then the pine bark beetle senses the trees are in a weakened state, and they go in for the kill.

One could draw an analogy between the premeditated spraying of toxic chemicals and American's love of distractions being sprayed on them from: television; computer screens; ipods; ipads; the latest cell phone gadget; food (look at how grossly fat Americans are--they're mostly pigs waiting to be rendered by Captain Ahab's whaling boat. Moby Dick wasn't a white whale, it was a white American slob, so fat that they have to ride around in grocery stores in those electric carts because otherwise they will lose their breath. "Whew!"); and living or dying in a world of powdered dreams via legal and illegal drugs--escape is the new definition of bravery for these un-patriots, these cowards that mouth the national anthem that they don't reflect: "Land of the free and home of the brave" Ha! Where are these free people? Where are these braves? Intoxicated in some crack house, or in their own houses, or at work, or glued to a computer screen or ipod/ipad, or television game show, or afternoon soap opera, or Voice, X-Factor, Dancing with the Stars. All meaningless nonsense that keeps reality away from the doorstep.

It's only a matter of time before the entire production comes to and end. The parasite will have drained the host to the last drop of life energy. We're in the midst of the final curtain call. In fact, this next couple of years, if life doesn't end with a sudden bang, will surely be the most dangerous in history. The masters of us all, the ones that these intoxicated fatsos actively refuse to see, plan on eliminating 95% of human beings, which absolutely includes these whales with arms and legs. Where is the resistance? We're on a trajectory of self-imposed suicide--death by submission to a strangle hold from which one can easily escape, but there won't be even a thought of such heresy.

Orwells' 1984 is here. This is where we stand,,,or stoop, depending on who's looking at whom.

Winston Smith pondered it:

"Rebellion meant a look in the eyes, an inflection of the voice; at the most, an occasional whispered word. But the proles, if only they could somehow become conscious of their own strength, would have no need to conspire. They needed only to rise up and shake themselves like a horse shaking off flies. If they chose they could blow the Party to pieces tomorrow morning. Surely sooner or later it must occur to them to do it? And yet--!"

And yet...and yet...there will be no rising up;there will be no shaking themselves like a horse. We're Elliot's "Hollow Men."

"We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats' feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar"

"This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper."

I share a very similar sentiment with you. For instance I sometimes hope from the bottom of my heart that the seismologists are right when they say the probability of a huge earthquake hitting Japan's metropolitan area in the next 4 years is 70%. The problem is that if this should happen, it's not the end of the world. The word "equality" is not in God's dictionary. I think China, for example, will outlast Japan and the U.S.

Equally important the probability that a good part of the Japanese archipelago sinks into the bottom of the sea by the next week is very close to zero. So the hardest decision I have to take is how to kill time until the doomsday. Should I go fasting until I starve to death? Should I stop the dose of the anti-hypertensive drugs right away? Or better yet, should I kill myself tonight?

Now I came to the conclusion that I should make believe life will go on at least for a while. That's why I spend everyday doing what the sap does to a young tree or a termite does to a dying one. I don't know I'm doing the best thing I can. But that doesn't really matter.

I suppose we should take your textual beating and not complain. Your language is harsh but we deserve your disdain. Now that you have addressed us so squarely, please tell us just what to do. This nation is untethered and at a loss.

I have long wanted to go to Paraguay because I could start a manufacturing firm there and give jobs to Paraguayans. I imagine that people there would be happy to earn wages and participate in something that would last long after my death.

I cannot do that now because I stayed home too long and spent all my savings to survive. There is no money to travel or to buy supplies or to rent land. I am frail and tired.

My eldest son and his children actually thought that Obama would be appropriate for a second term as President. They want him have a second chance to get it right. Even at this minute there is more trouble than before.

The United States will soon be too overpopulated, too small and too weak to be of value to other nations.


With our failure to win the election, a feeling of doom pervades the air. Perhaps the Japanese and the Germans will invade to save us. The Russians and Chinese seem not to be getting along well enough to do it.

Doom is in the air.

I don't think I can tell you what to do. How can I do that when I don't know what to do myself?

The good news for you is that if you feel you failed to "win the election," you still have hope that the Republican Party may regain power 4 years from now.

Another thing that will please you is that Japan will never invade America because it's already dead, or at least dying now.
