Ann Coulter wrote a book entitled ” DEMONIC, ” where in she labels all liberals demonic. Oh well, everybody knows she’s a whack job. Even Fox News ain’t returning her phone calls anymore. Now labelling me demonic is one thing but don’t call me a liberal Shirley. Sure I played for a benefit for Obama’s ” Get Out The Vote ” but that was only because I thought he would keep his campaign promises of hands off medical marijuana patients in states that had passed voter referendums. Now I’d play a benefit for Obama, ” Get Out the Oval Office. ” We could get Ann Coulter to host it and I’d play her all her favorite Grateful Dead songs.
People have been reading my blog and have been drawing conclusions and seeing things that just aren’t there. They label me a Liberal, a Commie Pinko, an Anarchist ( no that’s Dave, man. ) So please don’t call me a Liberal or a Democrat or a Republican for that matter. I’m more of an Independent Libertarian. They think I’m anti – this and anti – that. I’m not anti anything. For instance they say I’m anti -American!? Read my blog fool, I say repeatedly that America is the best country in the world. I encourage people to vote. I encourage them to stand up for what they believe in, to exercise their right to free speech and to take an active role in changing things…to be responsible citizens.
People say I’m anti – Capitalist, that I’m part of the Occupy Movement. I don’t know where they are getting any of that. I haven’t wrote one thing about Occupy. ( except that Ann Coulter thing and I didn’t even write it plus she’s just a bitch ) And while I agree with some of the things they are about ( i.e. Corporate Reform, Workers Rights ) actually I’m concerned about the burden they are putting on our already stressed system, the cost of which is being passed on to the American Taxpayer.
People also say I’m a Peacenik and that I’m anti –War. Hey I like blowing things up and killing people as much as the next guy. But again I’m concerned about the burden it’s putting on the American Taxpayer. Blowing things up and killing people is expensive man. Let some other country kill people for a change.
And lastly, they say I’m pro – Marijuana and I want to legalize pot. And to that I reply: no shit Sherlock.

Yes today is Black Friday, in the U.S. traditionally the day after Thanksgiving. The day after they give thanks for all they have, all the good little consumer whores go on a shopping frenzy to acquire even more stuff they neither want nor need. Like lemmings to the sea, they can’t help themselves.
Camping out all night in freezing weather to do battle in the morning over discounted electronics made in China by children who make $3 a day if their lucky.
But no that’s the Black Friday on my mind. The one I’m talking about has nothing to do with how many shopping days are left ‘til Christmas. I’m talking about the day when all the stock markets around the world crash sending the economy into another Great Depression, which might be anyday now.
” When Black Friday comes
I stand down by the door
And catch the grey men when they
Dive from the fourteenth floor
When Black Friday comes
I collect everything I’m owed
And before my friends find out
I’ll be on the road
When Black Friday falls you know it’s got to be
Don’t let it fall on me
When Black Friday comes
I fly down to Muswellbrook
Gonna strike all the big red words
From my little black book
Gonna do just what I please
Gonna wear no socks and shoes
With nothing to do but feed
All the kangaroos
When Black Friday comes I’ll be on that hill
You know I will… “
If you don’t believe me just ask Steely Dan.
They know I will.

So are you with me so far class? In prehistoric times it was share and share alike. Then with the rise of settled agricultural societies came notions of private property and keep your hands off my stack, jack. And according to the authors of “ SEX AT DAWN, the Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality,” the sharing extended to sex as well. “ A great deal of research from Primatology, Anthropology, Anatomy, and Psychology points to the same fundamental conclusions:
Human beings and our hominid ancestors have spent almost all of the past few million years or so in small, initimate bands in which most adults had several sexual relationships at any given time. This approach to sexuality probably persisted until the rise of agriculture and private property no more than 10,000 years ago. When people began living in settled agricultural communities, social reality shifted deeply and irrevocably.
Suddenly it became crucially important to know where your field ended and your neighbor’s began. Thus patriarchal notions of private property began. They go on to quote the 10th Commandment: “ Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass ( ! ) nor anything that is thy neighbor’s… “ These things were considered a man’s possessions ( got that ladies? ). And when you got stuff you have to protect it. With the increase of population and the rise of city states, the male warrior became the dominant mode. So there it is in a nutshell and that’s where we are today.
So I ask you this, to quote a fun little ditty by the Florida band, RUDY :
“ What are you going to do with all the love that you’re hiding in your underpants? “
“ …arrayed in Purple and Scarlet color, and decked with Gold and Precious Stones and Pearls, having a Golden Cup in her hand full of Abominations and the filthiness of her Fornications: and upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, MOTHER OF HARLOTS, AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH “
( Revelation 17: 1-6 )
Sounds pretty harsh to me, I don’t know what it means but reading that scared the shit out of me when I was kid. But I wasn’t referring to that. I was talking about hoarders. The Oxford Dictionary defines them as “ people who accumulate more than one’s current requirement of food, money, ( gigs ) etc. “ …and sex?
In the 2010 New York Times Best Seller “ SEX AT DAWN, the Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality, “ the authors Christopher Ryan, Ph D and Cacilda Jetha MD argue that in prehistoric times everything was shared, including sex!
“ Anthropologists have demonstrated time and time again that hunter-gatherer societies are nearly universal in their fierce egalitarianism. Sharing is not just encouraged, it’s mandatory. Hoarding or hiding food, for example, is considered deeply shameful, almost unforgivable behavior in these societies. We believe this sharing behavior extended to sex as well. “
That being said, to quote a favorite Beatles song,
“ WHY DON’T WE DO IT IN THE ROAD? “
