A SHINY OBJECT TO KEEP YOU OCCUPIED: THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

"BLUE" JIMMY:  POLITICAL ANALYST

BLIND DOG OZZY:  NEUROTIC CHIHUAHUA


"BLUE" JIMMY:  So much conflict, so much agression, protests, riots, accusations, people with bloody faces on the evening news ... are we talking about the civil war in Syria?

BLIND DOG OZZY:  No, the 2016 Presidential Election!!!
2016 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN PROTEST



"BLUE" JIMMY:  We started out with a diverse bunch:  Men; women; minorities; non-politicians; relatives of former presidents; TV celebrities ...

BLIND DOG OZZY:  The Usual Suspects! 

"BLUE"  JIMMY:  I've written about the subject of the false nature of U.S. Presidential Elections in the past (see my blog "Making You Feel Important:  The 2012 Presidential Election") and have been very critical of all the candidates.  What sparked this blog was seeing thousands of people clashing outside of Republican front-runner Donald Trump's speaking appearances across the country.  I see so much passion from supporters and protesters.  Supporters believe that he will somehow "turn this country around" and make it great again while protesters believe that if they hold up signs and shout slogans, they can save this country from the embarrassment of having Trump as the Leader Of The Free World.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Yeah, none of that is gonna happen.

"BLUE" JIMMY:  We have five candidates left, three Republican and two Democrat, and I could have narrowed it down to those five two years ago.  John Kasich can never win because he's a middle-of-the-road politician from a Midwestern state with all the charisma and leadership abilities of a middle school principal.  Bernie Sanders can never win because he's less U.S. President and more loud, annoying, irritable old guy who does your taxes every year.  Ted Cruz can never win because a Latino will never be elected President unless George Lopez decides to run for office.  Donald Trump, despite his popularity, can never win because well, he's Donald Trump and if Presidents were elected according to sheer popularity polls, Kim Kardashian could be our next President.  People who think Trump can win don't understand the complexities of the electoral process which to tell you the truth, I don't even fully understand.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Don't look at me!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  My deep and sinister journalistic sources informed me long ago that Hillary Clinton will be "placed" as the next President Of  The United States Of America due to her significant family and political ties and the strategic importance of her being the first woman President.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  There you have it!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Mind you, I don't support Clinton or any of the other candidates, I just know what the score is.  I've made it a reoccuring theme in my political writings that the American People should quit looking for a Messiah Candidate who will "make America great again."  

BLIND DOG OZZY:  F**k the candidates!!!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  There are more than 300 million people in this country and there's only one President.  We should determine the quality of our lives and not some figurehead.  America does not need to be made great again ...

BLIND DOG OZZY:  ... America has always been great!!!


"BLUE" JIMMY:  Sake's Alive!


BLIND DOG OZZY:  Wow!  Wow!

CITIZEN FOUR: THE STRANGE CASE OF EDWARD SNOWDEN

"BLUE" JIMMY:  RIGHT-TO-PRIVACY ADVOCATE

BLIND DOG OZZY:  NEUROTIC CHIHUAHUA

"A child born today will have no conception of privacy at all. They'll never know what it means to have a private moment to themselves an unrecorded, unanalyzed thought.  And that's a problem because privacy matters; privacy is what allows us to determine who we are and who we want to be." -- Edward Snowden

"BLUE" JIMMY:  I rarely do DVD reviews, but I found an exception in the documentary, "CitizenFour" first aired on HBO in 2014  and then released on DVD last year, about the Edward Snowden case and subsequent, worldwide explosion on right-to-privacy issues.  I had followed the Edward Snowden case with some interest ... 

BLIND DOG OZZY: LUST! ...

"BLUE" JIMMY:  ... Some investigative journalist curiosity ...

BLIND DOG OZZY:  ... FILTHY LUST!! ... 

"BLUE" JIMMY:  ... Ok, "motivated fascination" ... 

BLIND DOG OZZY:  F**KING LUST!!! 

"BLUE" JIMMY:  This is the story millions of journalists of my generation anticipated for decades!  If you were a journalism student  like me in the 70's and 80's, you were no doubt, inspired -- scratch that -- moved to action, by the 1976 film, "All The President's Men" starring Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman which was based on the non-fiction book by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein.  The book, written by these two Washington Post reporters, blows the lid off the complex web of lies, deceit, corruption and criminal acts committed mostly during the Nixon Administration which culminated in the burglary of Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate Hotel.  Washington Post reporters Woodward and Bernstein (jointly referred to as "WoodStein" by their editor-in-chief), conducted an investigation which was much more like a police investigation than one typically done by a newspaper.  Putting their weiners on the chopping block and relying on mostly anonymous sources (something taboo in journalism), they got the scoop on The Story Of The Century and became legendary in the field of investigative journalism.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  And probably got laid on a regular basis!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  When the Edward Snowden case came to light, I was thrown back many decades and was envious of the journalists involved in this case.  Basically, the documentary "Citizen Four" shows how documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras and Glenn Greenwald of the British newspaper The Guardian were sucked into this case by a stranger on the internet who sent them encrypted emails under the screen name "Citizen Four" and gave them information on grossly illegal surveillance practices by the National Security Agency and other government offices all done ostensibly, to fight the War On Terror.  In the documentary, Poitras and Greenwald travel to Hong Kong where "Citizen Four" is hiding out in a hotel room.  "Citizen Four" reveals himself to be American citizen, former CIA employee and NSA contractor, Edward Snowden.  Unlike NSA whistleblower William Binney, who resigned from the NSA in 2001 and alleged unconstitutional violations of privacy by his former employers, Mr. Snowden brought the goods.  He provided thousands and thousands of stolen documents that showed that the NSA and other agencies have illegally collected massive amounts of digital data on American and foreign citizens and even friendly, foreign government officials.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Oh, B**ch!!!  As if America didn't have enough enemies already!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Although missing all the car chases and explosions and Kung Fu fighting, the documentary has the feel of a spy movie.  And Snowden, looking pale and nerdy and living off of room service, looks less James Bond and more "Big Bang Theory."  But patient, determined, meticulous and displaying a big set o' brass cannon balls, he starts spewing out information that he knows will ruin his comfortable life and change the course of history.

BLIND DOG OZZY: Bam!!!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  With his permission, his identity is revealed to The World, his information gets published and the media blitz is on.  Reporters start making phone calls to his room, he changes rooms as an evasion tactic but realizes that the U.S. government will soon ask that he be extradited to face criminal charges.  It becomes obvious to Snowden that he will have to leave Hong Kong and with the help of various human rights crusaders and even Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, he heads for South America but becomes stranded in Russia.  Those involved in his case are either harassed, followed or feel threatened and have to sever direct contact with him.  

BLIND DOG OZZY:  They felt they might get "taken out!"

"BLUE" JIMMY:  That's what adds an element of suspense to the documentary.  Despite the sensitive and classified nature of the information being handled here,  there is a rush to get it the f**k out!  Snowden and the journalists he's chosen to share this information with, are the hub of this information which can be conveniently made to "disappear" by sinister government authorities if this story is not published on a wide scale and given to the public.  Once the information is published, most of the threat to their lives is removed.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  You can't put the genie back in the bottle!


"BLUE" JIMMY:  In the aftermath, Snowden is stuck in Russia, not because he is a Russian spy as some have alleged, but because his passport has been revoked and he cannot travel to South America where he had originally planned to ask for asylum.  Eventually, he was granted a three-year stay in Russia and has applied for political asylum in countless countries but they have all bowed to the pressure of the Obama administration's "requests" that they not grant him asylum.  

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Even countries that were outraged over the NSA spying such as Germany, have acted like total pussies and refused asylum for Snowden on technical grounds!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Ultimately, Snowden is better off for now, in Russia.  Being a former CIA employee, he has pointed out that the CIA has a strong presence in South America and he could easily be snatched off the street and taken back to the U.S. to face charges.  The U. S. government can't lean on the Russians the way it does with everyone else.  

BLIND DOG OZZY:  I never thought in my lifetime, I would see Russia aiding and abetting a champion of right-to-privacy and free speech while the United States persecuted that same person ... WTF!!!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  President Obama maintains that Snowden is a criminal and that before Snowden's revelations came about, he ordered an investigation of NSA practices.  Yet, the Obama administration revealed nothing about NSA spying and violations of The Constitution. Every discussion of the Snowden case by the U. S. government revolves around the legal aspects of his copying of classified documents and completely ignores the fact that he caught the government in the act of creating an Orwellian, "Big Brother" society.  This is a much bigger deal than many people think.  Many think that a society like this is inevitable and that we should just bow down and accept it.  Snowden unexpectedly, threw a big monkey wrench into the "1984" machinery and may have bought us years of time to "Kick Out The Jams Motherf**ker!" as the rock band The MC5,  so directly put it.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  So why should anyone see this documentary?

"BLUE" JIMMY:  The FBI, CIA, NSA, the DOD and many other acronyms claim that we as citizens, have the luxury of not seeing all the dirty deeds that they do to keep us a free society.  "Citizen Four" shows an American Citizen in real time, committing one of these dirty deeds to do exactly the same thing and not once did he ever deny it.  As Henry David Thoreau said in an essay on civil disobedience, "The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation ... "  "Citizen Four" shows a man refusing to lead a life of quiet desperation and in step by step fashion, we see a man ruining his life to preserve the freedom of  others.  You're a goddamned, thieving criminal Mr. Snowden! ... So why don't I hate you?

BLIND DOG OZZY:  I can't ...


"BLUE" JIMMY:  Sake's Alive!

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Wow!  Wow!

THE FAILED WAR ON TERROR: YOU CAN'T FIGHT A PHILOSOPHY

"BLUE" JIMMY:  NEWS ANALYST:

BLIND DOG OZZY:  NEUROTIC CHIHUAHUA

"BLUE" JIMMY:  The War On Terrorism failed the moment it began.  

BLIND DOG OZZY:  First of all, terrorism isn't a person, place or thing that you can drop bombs on and eliminate!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  The American legal system, various governments around the world and even the United Nations have not been able to come up with a single, legally binding definition of terrorism.  In a very general, oversimplified way, you could say that terrorism is violence perpetrated by a group of people (although sometimes individuals) against noncombatants designed to have far-reaching effects that go beyond the actual act of terror.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Look at the s**t storm of wide-sweeping measures taken by the U.S. government after Sept. 11, 2001 -- try walking through airport security with your pants on!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  In light of those attacks and some more recent ones that made the headlines, there has been much anti-Muslim sentiment in the U.S.  This has resulted in hate crimes against Muslims and Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, who is no stranger to brain-dead public comments, expressing a desire to ban non-citizen Muslims from entering the country.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  How about pseudo-politicians below a certain I.Q. from entering the country!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  What would surprise many people however, is to know that most terrorist acts in the U.S. for about the last 30 years, were not carried out by Muslims of any kind.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Dun, Dun, Dun!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  That ain't my opinion, people!  According to an annual report by the FBI entitled, "Terrorism In The United States" ...

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Catchy title! ...

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Most terrorism in the U.S. is committed by non-Muslim f**kwads, many who have originated within the U.S.  This list includes:  Ejercito Popular Boricua Macheteros (a Puerto Rican separatist group); Left Wing and Right Wing extemist groups; Neo Nazi skinheads; anti-abortion activists; environmental activists; animal rights crusaders and Jewish extremist organizations such as the Jewish Defense League.  

BLIND DOG OZZY:  According to the FBI stats, more terrorism is done in the U.S. by Jewish extremist groups than any Muslim terrorists!  Is anyone calling for a ban on Jews entering the country?

"BLUE" JIMMY:  The big, annoying, loudmouth bitch of a point we're trying to make is that terrorism is a tactic, used by desperate people with nothing to lose, who cling to the philosophy that blowing up a classroom full of children is justified if it brings about a greater good and advances their cause.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  How do you handcuff and imprison that?

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Terrorism is not something you can defeat with military force and bomb out of existence.  The U.S. has meddled in the affairs of too many countries and now the chickens have come home to roost.  I had a neighbor on my street who liked to get s**tfaced, gossip, snitch and get into everybody's business.  Yet he wanted everybody to "get off my goddamned lawn and leave me the hell alone!"

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Yeah, things don't work that way!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  There's never a good excuse for terrorism, but when it rears its ugly head in your country you can't just rattle your saber and send in the cavalry and single out certain people.  You got to get to the root causes -- and that takes a quiet mouth, a strong mind and much effort ...

BLIND DOG OZZY:  ... Concepts that baffle politicians!!!


"BLUE" JIMMY:  Sake's Alive!

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Wow!  Wow!

MASS DEPORTATION? ... TRUMP PROVES HIS CANDIDACY A PUBLICITY STUNT!!!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  POLITICAL PUNDIT

BLIND DOG OZZY:  NEUROTIC CHIHUAHUA
MASS DEPORTATION OF MEXICANS 1930's

"BLUE" JIMMY:  In recent debates and interviews, GOP political candidate Donald Trump, has lost whatever credibility he had left by pushing the idea of a mass deportation of Mexican immigrants if he is elected president.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  I knew sooner or later, he would not only stick his foot in his mouth, but step in s**t first and then stick it in!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Evidence of this, is the input of none other than conservative commentator Bill O' Reilly, ( a man who proposed a Berlin Wall on the U.S. / Mexican border! ) who confronted Trump and criticized the feasibility of his plan.  Both referenced a shameful episode in U.S. history known as Operation Wetback, in which President Eisenhower in the 1950's, authorized the deportation of more than a million "perceived" Mexicans, many of whom were actually U.S. citizens.  Trump seems to think that this was a good, precise, efficient plan to get rid of unwanted Mexicans while O'Reilly reminded him that this was a "brutal" plan that resulted in many tragedies.  

BLIND DOG OZZY:  My uncle Chalio from East L.A. ended up in Uruguay!!!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  This was not the first deportation of Mexicans across the border in the mistaken belief that they were somehow "ruining" the American way of life.   Back in the 1930's during the Great Depression, millions of Mexicans and Mexican/American citizens were also coerced, intimidated and forced (deported) back to Mexico, tearing apart families and lives in the process.  Many never saw mothers, fathers and children again.  

BLIND DOG OZZY:  People suffered the most f**ked up abuses while being arrested and detained and like Nazi concentration camp survivors, there are only a few people left alive who can give first - hand accounts of this catastrophe!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  For Trump to propose a redo of this s**t stain in American history which would  damage and deeply offend millions of Americans, shows that his candidacy has always been a half -assed publicity stunt to grab attention -- much like the nomination in 1968, of an actual pig (Pigasus) for president by the Yippie Party!

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Except the pig turned out to be a better candidate than the eventual winner (Richard Nixon)!!!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Sake's Alive!

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Wow!  Wow!

WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE THE POPE ON THE END OF A ROPE?

"BLUE" JIMMY:  HERETIC
PAPAL DECADENCE

BLIND DOG OZZY:  NEUROTIC CHIHUAHUA
THE POPE'S "HOLY" THRONE

"Would you like to see The Pope on the end of a rope - do you think he's a fool? " -- Black Sabbath



"BLUE" JIMMY:  Pope Francis recently made his "royal address " to the United Nations and has made frequent speaking appearances all over the world in which he has spoken candidly about many subjects.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Some have even gone so far as to call him the "People's Pope."    

"BLUE" JIMMY:  But for him to scold The World like a mean-ass nun in catechism class who caught you chewing gum is hypocrisy up the ass!!!  In short order, he criticized The World for oh, I don't know, things like:  Corporate greed; neglect of the poor; drug trafficking; human trafficking & sexual exploitation; warmongering; destruction of the environment and religious intolerance!!!

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Oh, b**ch!!!  This, coming from a religious leader who lives in Caligula-like, decadent luxury who represents a Church which has supported and received countless millions from fascist governments, ( e.g. Mussolini, Nazi Party),  has owned stock in a weapons manufacturing corporation (Beretta),  has done business with companies which harm the environment and goes against Church teachings (such as a pharmaceutical company which produces birth control products), has practiced aggressive and institutionalized pedophilia for centuries, has systematically destroyed indigenous cultures, documents and teachings so as to be lost forever, imprisoned, tortured and burned "non - believers" for questioning the slightest aspects of Church dogma ( e.g. Is the communion wafer the actual "Body of Christ" or just symbolic? ) and has historical treasures, material wealth and financial holdings which are incalculable due to its tax - exempt status and ability to circumvent financial reporting practices.  

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Dude!!!  You gave them both barrels!  The fact is that The Church has a lot of 'splaining to do about its own activities before it can start bitch slapping World Leaders and Nations.  Even if you wanted to overlook its medieval past, The Church has been involved in contemporary scandals that involve the Mafia, money laundering at the Vatican Bank, pedophile rings and the suspicious resignation of Pope Benedict  for "health reasons."  

BLIND DOG OZZY:  The Vatican was cleaning house and he had to go!!!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  There's a lot of good people in The Catholic Church who have dedicated their lives to humanitarian aid and spiritual guidance but the lowdown is, The Vatican has been a corrupt and perverse institution since its inception and the historical documentation is overwhelming!  I don't often quote the bible, but here's a gem:  "Thou hypocrite, first cast the beame out of  thine owne eye:  and then shalt thy see clearly to cast the mote out of thy brother's eye." -- Matthew 7:5.  Which in vulgar, corrupted, American English is:  "You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you can see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye -- asshole!"

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Dude, you're quoting "The Bible" ... What a fag!!!  Here's a riddle -- Why are nuns called nuns? ... 'Cause they never get none!  Ohhhh!!!


"BLUE" JIMMY:  Sake's Alive!

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Wow!  Wow!

YOU GAVE UP YOUR FREEDOM ... FOR WHAT?!



"I want freedom, the kind that they promised me ... just for living in this country!  
I want freedom, the kind that makes me feel strong,
but let me tell you, something is wrong!" -- Grand Funk Railroad

"BLUE" JIMMY: FREEDOM ADVOCATE

BLIND DOG OZZY:  NEUROTIC CHIHUAHUA

"BLUE" JIMMY:  OK, so I bin wantin' to write this blog since the story broke but since I ain't a news reporter but an investigative journalist, I was waiting for the "aftermath" so I could go off on the subject of the 2015 Clinton Correctional Facility Escape as it will be known in coming years and when the major motion picture comes to theaters near you!

BLIND DOG OZZY:  I'll watch it!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  As I sit here in the public library writing this, there is black plastic surveillance bubble right over my head.  I have to cover my tablet at times to protect my passwords and other sensitive information.  I have written before about the Big Brother, "Fahrenheit 451" and "Brave New World" aspects of our society.  The other day, I read an article about an electronic device that allows police departments to see through the walls of your house and monitor your movements inside your home without a search warrant!  Weak-minded people have told me, "well, if you're not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about!" 


BLIND DOG OZZY:  Yeah, that's what the filthy f***king Nazis and Soviets used to tell their citizens before kicking down their doors and hauling their asses off to prison for "suspicious" behaviour -- Bastards!!!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  And the Draconian Patriot Act, which you or I had no say in passing, allows violations of freedom not seen since the days of the Spanish Inquisition.  

BLIND DOG OZZY:  And don't even try to take a tube of Preparation H through airport security!  And hey, I bet you enjoy some sweaty NSA worker putting their grimy hands down your child's pants!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  So I want to know how a couple of barely educated, small-town, f**k ups and convicted murderers named Richard Matt and David Sweat, using Neanderthal tools and a little inside help were able to escape from a maximum security prison and evade capture for close to a month with literally hundreds of law enforcement personnel, with every high-tech resource, looking for them?  Apparently, this real -life Thelma & Louise could have taken out The White House, The Pentagon and NORAD with a little more planning and elbow grease!

BLIND DOG OZZY:  I can't even walk out of Walmart without showing the necessary documentation (sales receipt) -- how does this happen?

"BLUE" JIMMY:  The point I'm trying to make is that since the enactment of the Patriot Act and all other post 911 hysteria, we are no safer or protected than before but living in a Big Brother society where all your freedoms are taken away "for your own good."  

BLIND DOG OZZY:  When you were in school, you thought it was bulls**t when the teacher would punish the whole class when one idiot was caught chewing gum!  Why does the entire country have to be punished when a few psychotic assholes go off on a terror binge?


"BLUE" JIMMY:  Now, as I'm in the middle of this blog, a breaking news story is that Mexican drug lord, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman escaped from a "maximum security" prison in Mexico and is on the loose.  This guy was one of the most watched criminals in the world!

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Then he escapes through a mile-long tunnel in his shower -- and no one saw anything ... nice!!!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  It doesn't matter when they catch him or how high they hang him, the fact is that all the electronic surveillance in the world couldn't stop one of the most wanted criminals on the planet from escaping.  The truth is that Big Brother surveillance and invasions of our privacy are no match for diligent law enforcement and alert citizens when it comes to catching criminals.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  And we don't have to have microscopes up our asses to do that!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  It's been said before before but I'll say it again, a government that fears the actions and movements of its own people is no government at all and I don't need to be doing anything wrong to enjoy my right to privacy.  Your ancestors, like mine, lived good, honest lives, worked hard, fought in World Wars and gave their lives for your freedom.  You deserve better than a paranoid, suspicious government that monitors your every move -- you have earned it!  Do you want government-installed surveillance inside your home?  That could be next!

BLIND DOG OZZY:  I don't know, I don't mind if some government official watches me take a
s**t!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Sake's Alive!

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Wow!  Wow!

FORBIDDEN NEWS YOU AREN'T ALLOWED TO KNOW: WHAT'S GOIN' ON?

"BLUE" JIMMY:  FORBIDDEN NEWS CORRESPONDENT


BLIND DOG OZZY:  NEUROTIC CHIHUAHUA

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Alright, what's been in the news lately?

BLIND DOG OZZY:  A b**ch  of an earthquake hit Nepal, President Obama is trying to improve relations with Cuba, ISIS is still committing a s**tload of mayhem, a Bush and a Clinton are planning to run for President, another police shooting of a civilian and another pro athlete gets busted.

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Oh, man!  I could read that news anywhere.  I'm talking about the lowdown stuff you ain't gonna see and hear on CNN or USA Today -- The censored and forbidden stuff.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  DUN DUN DUN!  Tell 'em all about it Jimmy!


"BLUE" JIMMY:  There's different theories as to why certain news is censored and forbidden.  Some people say it's because media outlets are afraid to offend their mildly educated readers.  Others say they are afraid that sponsors will pull their advertising, which makes good economic but not good journalistic sense or that government officials put pressure on them not to report certain stories.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  It's probably all of that s**t!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  To mention all the stories that are not being covered by the mainstream media would take a whole book so, we're just going to throw a handful of topics out there to get people thinking.  There's an incredible amount of information out there in books from small, independent publishers, underground publications, radio and of course, The Vast Internet if you know how to navigate it properly.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Yeah, so put that video game down and do some research!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Forbidden Story #1:  We keep hearing about all these police shootings of unarmed civilians so the Feds must be keeping track of all these deaths, right?  Wrong.  Even though the FBI keeps track of every police officer killed in the line of duty, it keeps no statistics of police shootings of civilians and local police departments are not even required to supply those records to them.  Fortunately, some civilian organizations are keeping computer databases of these shootings and are encouraging information from anyone who has it.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Forbidden Story #2:  Hundreds of women and girls in the city of Juarez, Mexico are being murdered and mutilated and no one seems to be doing anything about it.  The women and girls are not mostly prostitutes or border jumpers as they had previously been characterized, but rather, young females on their way home from factory jobs who are found raped, murdered and missing body parts like someone was killing them for sport.  Law enforcement in the U.S. says it's not their problem (even though Juarez is on the Texas/Mexico border) and Mexican law enforcement is too incompetent to do anything about it.  Some journalists and activists claim to know the identities of the leaders of this thrill kill cult but still, no one is arrested and the killings continue -- goddamn!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Forbidden story #3:  We often hear that in unstable countries, people who speak out against the government get put on some kind of government s**t list and are harassed mercilessly.  Well, it happens here too.  People are reporting that members of American protest or activist organizations such as the Occupy movement are being put under FBI or NSA surveillance, followed and harassed with the justification that they are a potential "terrorist" threat.  But according to the mainstream media, this only happens in other countries.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Forbidden Story #4:  Overwhelming evidence has been compiled showing that GMOs (genetically modified foods), aspartame (NutraSweet), fluoride and most vaccines are extremely bad for you.  Most agencies who say these substances are safe have some sort of financial or political stake in them (such as the FDA and the WHO) while the independent researchers who have found these things toxic stand to gain nothing.  Yet, their findings consistently go unpublished by the mainstream media.

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Forbidden Story #5:  Many reliable sources are accusing the U.S. military of engaging in the indiscriminate use of "chaptering out" whereby, wounded soldiers are brought up on weak or false violations and then they are dishonorably discharged and stripped of all their government benefits including health care.  The military then has room to bring in young, healthy recruits who can go into combat and face the same thing if they are unfortunate enough to get wounded.  The military, of course, denies that this takes place but many insiders say that this happens all the time to good men who risked their lives for their country -- and no one's reporting it.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Forbidden Story #6:  The top recipients of U.S. foreign aid all practice torture and human rights abuses on a regular basis according to Amnesty International and other human rights organizations.  Most U.S. foreign aid goes to African and Middle Eastern countries with the top prize going to Israel which receives more than three billion dollars a year.  It's a well known fact that Israel invented the torture techniques which other countries put into use -- Thanks, Israel.  By the way, you won't hear this in the news.

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Forbidden Story #7:  The war in Iraq has left Iraqi citizens with an extremely high birth defect and miscarriage rate due to the American military's use of toxic chemicals like lead, mercury and depleted uranium.  Of course, the military denies any connection but then hey, they also said Agent Orange was harmless.  The birth defects in children are so horrifying, no American media outlet will show the photos -- but it still happens.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Forbidden Story #8:  The Federal Reserve Bank, which controls most of the money in this country, is not a government agency.  Conspiracy theorists have blamed the Federal Reserve for everything from World Wars to the Great Depression to the assassination of JFK (who took steps to diminish the power of the Federal Reserve) to the financial meltdown of 2008.  The fact is, the Federal Reserve is a government-sanctioned, privately-owned cartel which apparently produces money out of thin air and has a monopoly on credit and currency which has produced a debt that the United States government can never repay.  I never learned this in school -- did you?  

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Forbidden Story #9:  The educational system in the United States is designed to produce worker drones and not intellectuals.  John D. Rockefeller Sr. was often quoted as saying, "I don't want a nation of thinkers, I want a nation of workers."  His Rockefeller Foundation, along with the "charitable" works of many other big-money families, have directed the course of education at all levels in this country for countless decades.  Critical thinking is discouraged and instead, students are encouraged to learn skills which will set them up for a lifetime of wage slavery.  Every article I've ever read about the U.S. educational system deals with behavior (e.g. sex scandals) and security issues -- never what kids actually learn in the classroom.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Forbidden Story #10:  What's with the underground cities?  No longer in the realm of zany conspiracy theories, it is a proven fact that the United States has been building massive underground installations since the 1940's.  These underground bases are said to be built by nuclear tunneling equipment which can bore through solid rock at a rate of miles-per-day and are located under every major American city.  Some contain many different levels, are interconnected by high speed trains, contain medical facilities, shopping malls and every major convenience and are described as being large enough to house countless thousands of people.  What are they for?

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Here's where we stumble back into the area of conspiracy theory.  Some say the bases are just military bases indicative of how the U.S. military utilizes overkill in everything they do.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Some say they're in preparation for some massive civil unrest where government officials and prim and proper folks will have to take refuge underground -- Zombie Attack!!!

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Here's a good one!  Some say it's in preparation for the return of the planet Nibiru, a celestial body which rotates near the Earth every 3,000 years or so and its approach is supposed to trigger cataclysmic events which will make the surface of the Earth inhospitable and will force what is left of the world's population to take refuge underground.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  OH, B**CH!!!  

"BLUE" JIMMY:  Whatever these installations are for, they are real and you won't hear about them or any of these other stories unless you forget about the mainstream media and read and do research and frequent bookstores and websites that feature um, exotic content.

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Like old issues of Gent Magazine!     

"BLUE" JIMMY:  That's all the time we have!

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Vintage Porn!

"BLUE" JIMMY: Stay vigilant and remember the words of brother Marvin Gaye when he said, "What's Goin' On?"      

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Baboom, Baboom!


"BLUE" JIMMY:  Sake's Alive!

BLIND DOG OZZY:  Wow!  Wow!
