News broke this week, via a low level worker informant, that not only did Trump hide classified documents he’s stolen from the Feds, he held a rehearsal, where he acted as the impresario, to hide them! Here, using MidJourney, I’ve visualized the spectacle.

It’s Time to Go UP the MAGA Rabbit Hole!
Whoo hoo! Now that Tucker Carlson’s MAGA hate machine’s plug has been pulled by Fox with his unceremonious firing yesterday, it’s time to go UP the rabbit hole! UP before Fox replaces Tucker with someone perhaps ever worse for democracy. My money is on Fox’s smarmy bigot sexist Jessie Waters as Tuckem’s replacement.
We’ve all heard of going down the MAGA/ Q cult Russian fostered rabbit hole, but what if we flipped the script and go up the rabbit hole instead? Instead of getting lost in the fog of lies, blatant disinformation and uncertainty, let’s ascend back to the light of truth and unity.
“This is the way”as they say on THE MADALORIAN:
Step 1: Realize at last that the current MAGA belief system has been founded a pile of traitorous lies. Lies clearly shown in the Dominion/Fox lawsuit, settled last week for $787 million. A case where in discovery the world incredibly learned all the Fox evening anchors, including Tucker, were found to be lying about the so-called 2020 stolen election. All anchors. Let that sink in. Lies that killed people on the January 6, 2021 insurrection and over a million people from Covid disinformation. The gem from Dominion lawsuit is that it uncovered that Tucker texted to a co-worker that he hates Trump passionately. It can be scary to let go of Trump’s hateful myth of a stolen election propagated by Fox, but it’s a necessary first step to accept that the truth Trump lost and lost 2020 badly to an old man running his presidential campaign from his home basement during Covid.
Step 2: “Do the research” is how Trump’s and his lying allies took you down the MAGA rabbit hole. Now doing the research is your ticket up the rabbit hole back to the real world. Go beyond MAGA sources and research alternative mainstream viewpoints. Read books and articles by liberal-minded people who challenge MAGA beliefs. Listen to liberal podcasts and watch Netflix documentaries like THE FAMILY and THE GREAT HACK that offer a fresh truth based perspective. Don’t be afraid to learn from those the MAGA cult previously, and self-severingly, asked you dismiss.
Step 3: Connect with others who are also exploring exiting the MAGA rabbit hole. Find an online community of like-minded individuals who are also questioning their false MAGA beliefs. Attend conferences, workshops, and meetups where you can engage in thoughtful discussions and debates. You might even find that your beliefs shift as a result of these conversations.
Step 4: Reawaken your powers of critical thinking. Don’t blindly accept what you were force fed by the likes of Tucker, Fox, Bannon, OAN, NewsmMax QAnnon, but instead, question everything. Dare to open your mind to MSNBC! Ask for evidence and do your own research. Challenge MAGA racism and sexism that seeks to divide us.
Step 5: Embrace uncertainty of today’s politics. It can be uncomfortable to not have all the answers MAGA would give you, but uncertainty is a necessary part of growth. Be open to changing your beliefs as you learn more and experience new things.
Step 6: Take care of yourself. Meditate. Eat healthy foods. Get into sports with people that do not look like yourself. Exploring new beliefs can be emotionally taxing. Make sure you’re taking care of your mental and physical health. Practice self-care and seek out support when you need it. When you watch Fox mix it up with some MSNBC. Free your mind.
Going up the MAGA rabbit hole is not a journey for the faint of heart, but it’s a journey worth taking. Exploring new beliefs and challenging old ones, will at the very least expand your understanding of the world and yourself. Embrace the groovy unknown, question everything, and climb higher than we ever thought possible, beyond the rabbit hole. We have a country and planet to save.
Rise up. It’s time to…
Update 4/26: The UN Russian ambassador mourning Tucker’s firing, coupled with an offer from RT (Russian Television) to host, is confirmation about where Tucker’s roots are deeply woven in his deadly to democracy rabbit hole.
Black Elves and White People
We may be seeing Black elves today and Black mermaids in film these days, but Hollywood ‘s past of catering exclusively to a white American market since “Birth of a Nation” promoted the KKK, demonizing Blacks played by white actors in Black face, was just the start of shameful decades of racism fostered by tinsel town. Working in fits and starts, Hollywood has been trying to make up for its sins ever since the 60s Civil Rights Movement.
For decades, Hollywood was dominated by white heroes and heroines, with few exceptions. Whether it’s the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, the “Harry Potter” series, or “Game of Thrones”, leads were almost exclusively white, with people of color relegated to supporting or background roles. This lack of representation has had a profound impact on white culture which has become increasingly fractured and isolated as a result.
The lack of Black heroes in television and movies contributed to a fractured white culture because it has denied white viewers the opportunity to see themselves in a positive light in relation to people of color. Indeed, in the absence of positive Black role models, white viewers turned to negative stereotypes and caricatures of Black people to define themselves promoted by the white owned news agencies. This has led to a fracture in white culture increasingly defined by fear and hatred of people of color, oblivious to their own white privilege spoon fed under the guise of news on networks like Fox and their imitators. Hate and fear sell soap.
To understand how this has come about, it’s important to look at the history of film and TV. Hollywood has its roots in the mythology and folklore of ancient cultures, where heroes and heroines of all races and ethnicity were celebrated. However, as the genre evolved and became our modern Hollywood system, it became increasingly dominated by white writers and creators, who brought with them their own biases and assumptions about race and culture.
This bias is evident in the way that Black characters are portrayed in many stories. Often, they are relegated to supporting roles, or are portrayed as exotic or mystical figures, rather than as fully-realized everyday individuals with their own agency and motivations. This reinforces the idea that Black people are somehow different or other, and contributes to a culture where white people are taught to fear and mistrust people of color.
In the 50s and 60s, TV shows such as “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet,” “Leave It to Beaver,” and “The Andy Griffith Show” were extremely popular, and featured all-white casts. While some shows, such as “The Jack Benny Show” and “The Ed Sullivan Show,” did include occasional appearances by Black actors, the vast majority of the characters and story-lines revolved around white perspectives. This lack of Black representation created a gap in reality, as if Black people did not even exist in the world of these TV or film.
The scar impact of this gap in representation left on the American psyche is significant. Boomer white audiences grew up watching these shows and movies, and were taught to see the world through a white lens. Black people were often portrayed as either invisible or as one-dimensional stereotypes, reinforcing harmful and limiting racial stereotypes. This lack of representation and narrow portrayal of Black people contributed to a fractured white culture that lacked empathy and understanding for the experiences and perspectives of people of color that still plagues us today.
In order to break down the illusion of white power and privilege, it is essential that Hollywood and other media outlets prioritize stories and perspectives from people of color, sexual preference and religion no matter how much the white Christian patriarchy might complain about Black elves and mermaids. By featuring ever more diverse casts and stories that reflect the experiences of people from all backgrounds, Hollywood can help create a more equitable and just media landscape that challenges harmful stereotypes and narratives about race. Thus helping put an end the white racism Hollywood once so enthusiastically fostered for far too long.
Using The Superbowl To Understand Quantum Entanglement And A Packer Backer Meditation
Greetings fellow football and meditation fans, and welcome to Dream Shield Planetary Meditations, where we explore the infinite wonders of the universe through craeting the coolest meditation ever. Today, we delve into the mind-bending world of quantum entanglement, using the example of the 32 NFL teams and the Super Bowl.
Imagine, if you will, that you are a Green Bay Packers fan, like most of my Wisconsin family, devastated by your team’s failure to make it to the Super Bowl LVII. But what if I told you that in some alternate reality, the Packers did make it, and in fact they won the big game? That’s the magic of quantum entanglement, dear reader.
With 32 teams in the NFL, the number of possible outcomes for a single Super Bowl game is an astonishing 1,024. But in the quantum world, every single one of those outcomes exists simultaneously, each one a unique expression of the infinite possibilities of the universe. So while in this reality, your beloved Packers may have fallen short, in another reality, they emerged victorious.
As we contemplate this infinite expanse of potential, let us recognize the balance of infinite win and infinite loss that it holds. Every victory is matched by the potential for defeat, and every decision that we make holds the power to shape the universe in ways that we may never fully comprehend. But by embracing the boundless potential of the quantum world, we can tap into the power to manifest the outcomes that resonate with our deepest desires.
So let us open our hearts and minds to the infinite possibilities that surround us, embracing the balance of infinite win and infinite loss and recognizing the limitless potential that resides within us and all around us. Whether you’re a Packers fan, a Patriots fan, or just a lover of the game, let us be inspired by the boundless potential of the quantum world and empowered to create a reality that aligns with our highest aspirations. Remember, in the quantum world, anything is possible – even a Packers Super Bowl victory in some alternate reality.
So here’s a Packer Backer Meditation you do whenever the game gets you down. Change the name to your NFL team or some other aspect of life where you are invested in stressful thinking.
Begin by finding a comfortable seated position, put on a cheese hat if you have one, and take a few deep breaths, inhaling deeply and exhaling slowly. As you breathe, allow yourself to relax and release any tension of wanting outcomes in your body.
Close your eyes and imagine yourself in a state of quantum entanglement floating above the 50 yard line on Lambeau Field beside the spirit of Vince Lombardi, where all possible outcomes exist simultaneously where in every superbowl that’s ever been played for the past 57 Green Bay wins. Allow yourself to simultaneously feel the infinite potential of the quantum field, and release any attachment to a specific outcome in a quantum universe where Green Bay never won or will ever win a Superbowl.
As you continue to breathe deeply, imagine Greenbay winning and losing in one of the infinite realities. Visualize this outcome with all of your senses, feeling the joy and excitement of the freedom of letting go of outcomes.
Allow yourself to fully immerse in this reality, feeling a sense of gratitude and appreciation for the experience. Know that this outcome exists in the quantum field, and that you are entangled with this reality.
As you release the stress of worrying about winning, you open yourself up to a universe of infinite potential and possibility. Trust in the universe to manifest the best outcome for you, and allow yourself to surrender to the flow of infinite possibilities.
Take a few more deep breaths, inhaling peace and exhaling stress. When you feel ready, slowly open your eyes and carry this sense of peace and calm with you throughout your day by doing your best in all things but letting go of outcomes, particularly around sports of all kind.
Remember that as you release the stress of winning, you tap into a deeper sense of quantum peace and serenity. May you continue to bask in the infinite potential of the quantum field, and may you trust in the universe to manifest the best outcome for you. Om shanti, shanti, shanti.
Hope this wasn’t too cheesy for you:)

10 Year Anniversary of The Coolest Meditation Ever: Antarctica, 12.12.12
10 years ago I was in Antarctica for the 12.12.12 meditations, which began precisely at 12:12 PM, to perform quantum meditations. The meditations were ET inspired using my Hollywood trained imagination to gain perspective on the human race. For me channeling ET spirit guide Ohom, short for Open Heart Open Mind or One Heart One Mind or Oscar Harry Orion Max, your pick, is similar to method acting where I enjoy not worrying whether Ohom is real or not.
Healthy skepticism of my visions aside — beware of storytellers and chanellers who present spirit work too confidentially as literal fact — what I do happily know, is the clarity or some cool boon of GAIA, gained via my channeling of Ohom, brought love into my once lonely life in the form of my beautiful wife and partner in all things in, Elizabeth. You can learn more of our ET inspired love story and cool new business where we are bringing cool New Age alternate health products to the mainstream at this link
Enjoy the meditations!
Stop back because I’ll post all 24 planetary meditations and share how far I think we’ve come to their becoming real and how far we still have to go in achieving the quantum intentional shifts. Roughly 40 years if you believe what my spirit guide told me. We make these dreams real. And Ohom warned me it would not look like the meditations I did in Antarctica — and in many place like Egypt and the first Woman’s Day March in DC after the Trump Inauguration and more to come — will not look like they are working. I hope to live to 2060 to see them all come true. Ohom’s promised I will. And I’ve requested to Ohom that I be vital and young at 108. Always wise to be specific when manifesting your dreams.

Meditations on Club Q
My wife Elizabeth and I had already made reservations at our favorite hotel in Santa Fe for an intimate Thanksgiving, also our 7th anniversary as a couple, when tragic news of the Club Q shooting reached us. It was the second mass shooting that week.
Since we’d be passing Colorado Springs on our way to Santa Fe we decided to make a stop to pay our respects to Club Q’s fallen. As we left the freeway and headed up Colorado Springs’ main drag, Academy Boulevard, experiencing what has to be one of the largest run of fast food joints and strip malls in ‘Merica, I said to Elizabeth we had to be prepared for possibility of a drive-by shooter. Elizabeth agreed we should not be deterred by fear.
Soon we spotted the temporary roadside memorial that has appeared in front of the strip mall that Q is part of on its backside. After circling the block for parking we pulled into the neighboring Walgreen’s lot. Walking the 100 years to the tragic site we joined about 30 people gathered in the little slice of road space delineated by a concrete barricade. On this day before Thanksgiving sadness hung in the air like nothing we’ve ever experienced but it was balanced by a deep feeling of so much love and respect for the five young LGBTQ people whose lives were cut short by hate and gun violence.
As someone who has reached his seventies and loved life, the good with the bad, I wept at the thought of these young people’s lives snuffed out by an angry stranger drunk on MAGA lies of Q of another and far dark sort. All for what? Trump?
Despite an angry white driver revving his grotesquely oversized white Ford pickup truck noisy motor as he waited at the light in protest to the show of love for the Q fallen, I said a meditation that humanity find a way out of all this maze of unbridled hate for anyone not conforming to outmoded religious prejudices that have lost their way in modern times.
I found Elizabeth talking in the crowd to a middle aged man and a woman from the Billy Graham institute. They seemed both out of place in their mission to spread the “good word”. Despite my reservations, I hugged them as a confirmation to my meditation and Elizabeth and I continued onto Santa Fe for our Thanksgiving. A Thanksgiving the fallen in the Club Q mass shooting were tragically deprived of.
All this fresh sorrow over the Club Q mass shooting took place less thanone year after a horrific Denver mass shooting took away a family friend. Alicia was head of Denver group called Sol Tribe. She operated a tatoo parlor just one-small-storefront-away her dear friend and business neighbor of my wife’s niece, Erika Righter. Alicia was one of four people killed by another rabid White Supremacist in a case that also garnered national media attention without a change to gun laws.
Here’s Erika’s recent op-ed in Westword where she discusses why we have to be much more careful to whom we donate money to after mass shootings and other tragedy’s if we want our contributions to reach the victims and the extended circle of traumatized survivors.
Jim Carrey, Moby and Millions More Give Musk’s Twitter The Bird
Fed up with billionaire Musk’s racist hate fueled incarnation of Twitter, famed comic Jim Carrey, despite a following of millions of fans, quit the failing site November 30th. This was just two days after yours truly felt the need to walk away from 13 years of tweeting for the same exact reasons.
I mean, Musk Tweeted yesterday that he has vital info about Hunter Biden’s laptop? Seriously? I am far more interested Ivanka and Jared’s billions they made under Trump’s 4 year reign of stupidity. A reign he posted on “Truth” Social and rewteeted on Twitter yesterday that he wants to reinstate by disbanding the US Constitution!
Spare yourself, dear reader. Follow Jim Carrey’s lead and give Musk’s Twitter the bird. If you are like me you will find it easier to distance yourself from the hate on Twitter by hearing our media restate Musk’s disinfo nonsense with some editorial by the news announcer rather than getting it raw, which is far more triggering. Take my word for it, you will miss nothing without doom scrolling on Twitter except higher blood pressure.
Animator Jimmy Hayward, in collaboration with Jim Carry’s artwork of a wild Scottish lighthouse keeper, have truly made a powerful quantum intentional tool here as Carrey’s Scot calls on the angels to bring light to the darkness of Twitter.
FYI, fans of our blog have met my wild Scottish hero Angus McPherson, a time traveling Scot from the future here to help bring about a cooler tomorrow. This for me is confirmation Jim Carrey is a spirit brother who I hope to meet and meditate with some day.
Millions of people and hundred of advertisers are also giving Twitter the bird as Musk allows banded accounts from the likes of Kanye West and Donald Trump back on the site. Here is mega musical artist’s Moby’s last tweet.
Join Jim Carrey, Moby, millions of ordinary people like meand advertisers leaving Twitter in order to speed Musk’s hate-soaked version of Twitter to its 404-demise and #GiveTwitterTheBird
Giving Musk’s Twitter The Bird
Twitter was already a cesspool even before Musk overpaid $44 billion for it and took control as the Chief Twit on October 27th. But with a rapid succession of what can only be described as either sabotage of the biggest political social platform on earth or downright stupidity, and I fear the former, Musk has nearly bankrupted Twitter in less than 30 days. All made the worse by firing half of his staff, mostly women in the purge.
Hey Elon, Hate is not a commodity! It’s a time bomb! Wake up and get a new CEO and back away from the vehicle!
But unwilling to wait for such a miracle, as a Thanksgiving gift to myself, this Twitter addict officially gave Musk’s Twitter the bird and deactivated his account. The bright spot in all this, besides starting to kick a Twitter habit taking up far too much of my time and creativity, is that Musk has completed the job for us all, started by billionaire buffoon Trump, of demonstrating that ego maniac billionaires must be reigned in to put an end this modern-day gilded age.
Many people with followings far greater than my humble 8,040 and over 10 million impressions of my Tweets, garnered thanks to some viral short videos, have left Twitter too. I’m also in the company of 50% of Twitter advertisers who have left Musk’s growing ever more unsafe and chaotic Twitter universe for greener pastures. I even made a hashtag for the occasion I invite you to share #GiveTwitterTheBird.
I utilized Twitter from 2009-2022, but I really got hooked in 2015 when using Tweets to join the fight to put the brakes on Trump’s 2016 run for president. All the while my Twitter mission was to bring some perspective to fellow voters that there is a middle road between the overly bureaucratic ways of the Democrats and the “look Ma no government” approach of the Republicans.
In the end, unwittingly subject to sneaky Russian disinformation, I voted for neither Hillary or the Donald. So even this politics junkie, who produced and directed a 2000 PBS special called A KID’S VIEW OF THE US, that aired as the lead into the presidential debate, and which garnered raves from The New York Times, Educational Magazine and Reuters and who again took to the road to in 2008 for KIDS TALK POLITICS to cover Obama’s win over McCain, to produce a hit web series with over 11 million views on YouTube, was effectively neutralized as a 2016 voter.
After Trump won I naively hoped, thanks again to shitload of Russian bot fueled disinformation fostered by the GOP and a billionaire owned complicit media, which America was as yet not fully conscious of as yet, that Trump would rise to the occasion of the office the POTUS. And so I traveled from sunny Sedona Arizona with my beautiful wife Elizabeth to the gloomy Trump DC inauguration. My mission was to film a series of meditations visualizing a term that would somehow Trump would miraculously, I had no delusions about Trump’s inept brand of pettiness, serve the planet’s best interests, even if unintentionally. Yeah, we dream big at CoolestMeditationEver.com, Antarctica big But before my producing partner wife and I even packed up our cameras to exit DC, Trump showed us with his rolling over the Standing Rock tribe with DPAL, what incredible optimists we were for getting sucked into covering the start of the launch of Trump’s “American Carnage” shit show.
Thankfully, my wife and I had also come to DC to cover the very first Women’s Day March. We saw firsthand that the crowds of passionate bright women, and the men who loved them, protesting Trump’s election far outnumbered the angry Trump inauguration crowds of the day before. Yeah. You heard me, Sean Spicer.
Within the course of his first catastrophic year in office Trump’s constant pressure on the desperate for power MAGA/GOP evolved it from a party I once loved as an independent choice into an openly racist, anti-vote, anti-abortion, pro-gun, anti-LGBTQ, sausage-fest nightmare.
Flash forward to 2018 and despite the growing toxicity of Twitter, and I decide to do penance for my 2016 gullibility. As Covid ravaged the country in 2020, under Trump’s disgusting ruler-ship, I used my Twitter following to promote a dark science fiction comedy about a Trump from a parallel universe handling Covid even worse than our own Trump on this meditation blog. But the tales are so dark I’ve moved it to it’s own web page TrumpsFeverDream.com. It has 12 work in progress chapters, seven reposted so far, complete with a scratch score voiced by my talented wife and I who play all the parts. Check it out some time.
I was for Bernie as the 2020 elections got into full swing, but I stuck with Biden when he got the Blue nod. Soon I went all in for Joe’s kinder and more honest (for a politician) approach than Trump’s patented brand of rage. And so I became nearly a full time Democracy fighter on Twitter, offering up quality videos and memes for Tweeps to share as my donation to the cause for preserving democracy!
Soon after Joe won I was one of warning voices, along with my wife Elizabeth a vet 17 years, that Trump was inciting MAGA to violence on January 6th. And sure enough, when the sad day arrived, we watched in horror as our capitol was ransacked by White Supremacists, emboldened by Trump’s lies of a stolen election.
When the dust settled Twitter served a valuable purpose of banning Trump for his insurrection and spreading lies. The Trump Twitter ban showed him mortal and broke a lot of the spirit of the racists who had debased the capitol. So it’s beyond disgusting Musk has undone this ban on Trump in the false name of free speech.
Post J6 has been, and still is, a precarious time while democracy hangs in the balance. Sadly, 2021 was not a time I could walk away from Twitter. Nor is today. But it feels safe enough to shop for a new place to fight. I am exploring Mastodon and Tribel and leaning more towards just sticking to my own platforms. My handle on twitter the last year was KeepItTogetherAmerica and I have reserved that URL. Fact is, I feel so burned by all the time I put into Twitter only to have Musk pig it up so I am reluctant to invest time into any pages except my own.
But I will always be glad I was on Twitter since 2009. There, in addition to my own posts and my wife’s we joyously shared truth from great accounts like Rachel, Don Winslow, The Lincoln Project, Jo, Defiant Dad and more, spreading the word that the vote was not stolen, that masking saves lives, that supporting Ukraine is our noble task as Americans, to name but a few.
Later we shared the posts admiring the competent handling of the Covid plague that Joe was implementing through vaccines, free to all Americans. What a change from Trump who seemed to relish in the fact the virus killed more Black people than whites. And all the while I was making great video content and memes for Twitter fighters for democracy to share. This vital work carried me right through the 2022 mid-terms where I was thrilled to see my predictions of red drizzle come true. Here’s some of my favorite videos I created just for my Twitter fans below.
Critical to keeping me motivated for Twitter work, which reached 6 to 10 hours a day at its peek, was the passion to keep democracy alive for my grand-kids. My Twitter following was modest but potent. Boebert is the most recent confirmation that a little influence can go a long way after she only won another painful 2 years in Congress by a little over 500 votes. Frisch came so close that it us my hope is she’s done after 2024.
But all this Tweeting was creating 12-15 hour work days to create and spread content and still do my marketing work to earn a living. So reaching the tender age 70 this fall I was thinking of quitting time consuming toxic Twitter when Musk snapped it up with suspicious Saudi backing. In less than a month Musk’s ego tripping Right wing mismanagement and his intentional reduction of safety standards sent me packing. I’d almost be grateful but I miss the many friends I made on Twitter.
Trump has yet to tweet again as it’s a conflict with his failing Truth Social platform, but Musk is behaving as Trump’s surrogate, dragging decent, and not so decent people of the Right, deeper down the rabbit hole into becoming puppets of hate. It’s like J6 all over again and we’ve lost a valuable tool for democracy in the Musk hostile takeover.
Good news, a week into quitting Musk’s hate fest and I do not miss Twitter much more than kicking my sugary Coca-Cola addiction back in the 80s. But, LOL, did you know sugar is as addictive as heroin? Yep. I am missing Twitter’s buzz if I am honest. Rubbing shoulders with politicos and celebs is intoxicating.
Musk made a bad situation worse letting Trump, Ye and Greene back on Twitter. He did this perhaps because he thinks, as it certainly has been in past, hate can be a profit center. But my hope is Twitter’s karma lesson for Musk – one he’ll likely never learn as he’s a fish in adrift in an ocean hate flowing from the South African apartheid childhood teachings of an abusive billionaire father – will be that he learns to the tune of losing $44 billion that hate only sells when it’s not the obvious profit point. Hateful racist magicians like Musk cannot show their tricks and last very long.
Looking back on the whole fiasco, the more toxic time passed on Twitter the less I felt like a person in the middle as the right moved to Nazi levels of insanity. I am a proud independent but Twitter’s MAGA made me feel like a liberal when Blue became the only sane choice for 2022. But most of all I am glad I gave up Twitter for my wife Elizabeth sake, who worried for both my sanity and safety. Good news, Elizabeth says I am smiling a lot more since giving Musk’s Twitter the bird.
Who knows? Maybe Musk destroying Twitter at the behest of his Saudi partners could end up as a blessing and sign for all Americans to chill out on politics and religion. Trump used Twitter to drag Evangelicals into the quagmire of supporting swine as saints.
And so I invite you, dear reader, to join me, millions of good people and advertisers leaving Twitter in order to speed Musk’s hate-soaked version of Twitter to its 404-demise. I for one am happy to have more free time for fun with my wife doing yoga, tennis and meditation and more time for developing my many films, screenplays and my coolest meditation ever work, all meant to foster love and compassion for the left, right and center rather than Tweeting for king Musk’s wicked pleasure.
Above is the last video Tweet I made to Twitter to help Warnock crush hate puppet Walker.
August 2022 TIME MAGAZINE article that foresaw Musk’s fall from grace.
GET HELP IF YOU NEED IT
We are all warriors in these stressful times, one side or the other, right or left! Says this centrist ever pushed more left as I remain anchored in who I am while the right slithers further and further right. So let’s be frank.
Things got bad during Covid in early 2020. Super bad. The worst ever. Thousands dying everyday. Trump robbing America blind and making noises about never leaving office. People freaking out about wearing a simple mask. An insurrection. The loss of a great New Age friends who were for Trump. Well, to be honest, fellow warriors. I thought of suicide more than once. But fortunately I learned in 1991 that it’s OK to feel your feelings of sorrow as long as you don’t get carried away and take irreversible action or hurt loved ones sharing too much of your sorrow.
We all have limits and we’re all coping with a lot. America’s tough but nothing is not this tough. People are literally going nuts. I mean lingering Covid that could erupt again any fucking day, the GOP totally gone Nazi, and more and more. It’s lot to fucking handle. Tossing on too much to a loved one about your death fantasies could be the proverbial one straw too many.
You see, we’re kinda on our own, all of us Covid survivors of the right, left and center. And if we are honest none of is will truly ever be who we were before we all lost a million fellow Americans in about two years. It fucking hurts! We rage on Social media like twitter and telegram where it’s cool to cuss. But sometimes that’s not enough so I make a movie.
Any who, back to 1991 as I ramble like all Boomers do. BTW, Joe has made me proud to be a Boomer again. OK, OK, I ramble. Flashback to 1991: I lose it all in a real estate disaster that wrecks my business and destroys my marriage. The double whammy makes me think of suicide for the first time since I was teen, for reasons that are not important to this blog tonight.
And so I stood there on an icy Chicago pier starring into the freezing waters of Lake Michicago one January 1992 night, thinking of the long sleep. But instead of jumping to my doom I stiffened my back and shouted to the wind, “The old Ken dies here tonight! A new me, a me who does as he pleases, follows his artistic dreams is born! And the sorrow about my old life dies with the old me! I am a new Ken!”
Well, it worked for me. That and some good therapy. Dear reader, there’s no shame in getting help when you have too many suicidal thoughts and have fallen into depression. Catch it early. I did it in 91 and I am still in the great counseling I began during Covid. It’s been a life saver.
The number for the Suicide Hotline is 800-273-8255 if you’re not lucky enough to know a good shrink.
Take care, dear reader of the left or right. My fans left, who enjoy my centrist thinking and frankness, you’re important to me, fan or not. – Ken Sheetz, Filmmaker, writer, skyscraper builder, broker, artist, entrepreneur.
PS. I want to get this blog back on track for soothing meditation. My anger with Trump will dominate this blog no longer. All Trump Fever Dream posts are moving off this blog to TrumpsFeverDream.com by end of the year. I’d do it faster but I have to earn a living despite what rich assholes like Ron Johnson think they know what senior life is like for ordinary people. 5 chapters with audio plus up there already.
LIES OF THE PATRIARCHY
It’s good to repost this on the day our radical right wing Trump hangover, AKA SCOTUS, has overturned Roe.
It’s with great pleasure I present a post from a woman I am honored to call my wife and partner in all things. As a 14-year veteran of U.S. Army’s military intelligence and special operations, Elizabeth speaks out about the Russian and GOP psyop we are fighting with an authority seldom found on the web. She served during Operations Urgent Fury, the invasion of Panama, Just Cause, Uphold Democracy, Desert Storm and Desert Shield. Elizabeth also served three years as a Chaplain’s assistant to the National Guard during the war in Afghanistan, the War On Terror and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Today, Trump’s obvious lie that he knew anything about the horrific revelation about Russian bounties being placed on American soldiers in Afghanistan inspired her to share some of her hard won wisdom as a true patriot and conscious crusader. And as an attractive woman she has had to deal with…
