The Poseidon Aquarium

Anything else is just a fish-tank in #SecondLife

Full Featured Aquarium at a Reasonable Price


I’d like to formally introduce you to one of the most sophisticated aquariums in Second Life. It looks like any ordinary fish-tank, but that’s the point. The Poseidon Aquarium is based off of a real life aquarium tank, right down to the most trivial of details.


This aquarium is partially made in mesh, with the back filter being entirely custom made with materials and sound (you know, that familiar sound an aquarium makes?)


Poseidon Aquarium - Materials & MeshThe surface water is animated with a subtle ripple, while even the gravel was lovingly custom made in mesh and textured with the highest quality. But we didn’t stop there…


Click the hood of the unit and you’ll be presented with a full menu of options, from pre-loaded backgrounds to a large selection of built-in gravel colors.


And yet, we weren’t finished.


Is the background not to your liking? We’ve even included the ability to use your own by selecting [Custom] from the menu, whereby you can insert the UUID of whatever background you want to have for your aquarium.


With a high attention to details, we’ve even made the light a working option with that all familiar “click” when you hit the switch. But we didn’t simply make a light that turns on and off (because that would be too easy). No, we went one further and made sure that the light in the Poseidon Aquarium actually fades the tank to dark and light when activated.


Poseidon Aquarium - Subtle CausticsOver the gravel, you may also notice built in animation for light rippling around (because that’s how light works with water) and this should give you an idea about just how focused we were in creating this aquarium.


And yet, there’s still more.


Fancy feeding those fish in your new fish tank? We’ve included that option built into the menu as an effect. Clicking the button will randomly drop fish food into the tank while you watch the flakes randomly drift into the water.


Of course, we didn’t stop there. No, when we set out to build this aquarium, our goal was simply to create something that addressed all the issues we thought all of the competition were lacking at the time.


Sure, you can spend over 1,400 L$ on a pre-made aquarium but that seems a little high priced for something you really can’t customize. Likewise, you can also spend 50L$ on other fish-tanks as well, but they aren’t as feature packed as the Poseidon Aquarium. Isn’t the fun of owning an aquarium making it your own by customizing it? From choosing the fish, to how you decorate your aquarium, we found all the other options lacking.


Even when it came down to the stand that the aquarium sits on, we custom designed it to be a perfect compliment to your Poseidon Aquarium with built in texture changer for four wood types (it’s not a flat texture like most aquariums in SL).


Poseidon Aquarium - Texture Change Stand (512)

With an easy to use interface built into the side of the stand, you can easily identify what color you’re choosing in a visual manner. With a single click, it’ll change over.


Simple as that.


And yet, we still continued to add attention to detail. For instance, the front of the tank itself has a temperature strip attached for authenticity.


The volume of the ambient sound (filter and water) can also be changed from the main menu, and even muted if you so desire.



  • 9 Built-In Backgrounds + Custom Option
  • 12 Built-in Gravel Types
  • Working Light & Ambient Sound
  • Partial Mesh
  • Volume Control
  • Fish Food Animation
  • Texture Change Stand
  • Endless combinations!


Poseidon Aquarium - DetailAbout the only thing the Poseidon Aquarium doesn’t come with are the fish and decorations. It is at this point you’re probably scratching your head and asking “Why would the aquarium that has everything not have fish and decorations?”


Well the answer is simple.


We really did think about this while it was being made, and we asked ourselves what one of the best things about owning an aquarium was? The answer is that you own an aquarium, but every aquarium is different… which is to say, aquarium owners are able to decorate it any way they want, put whatever fish they want into the tank and really make it theirs.


Maybe you want to own a Super Mario Brothers themed aquarium?



SMB Fish Tank


It’s completely doable with the Poseidon Aquarium set because we made it customizable and left the fish and decorations to you. We want to give our customers the freedom of expression while providing the most advanced aquarium that we can in the process.


Set the gravel color, use a Custom background, and make up some SMB props for your tank (which should take maybe twenty minutes if you’re in a rush). Add a few fish to your tank and viola!


Want to go into business making aquarium props for the Poseidon Aquarium set? Go right ahead! We’ll probably be releasing some sets of our own over time, but we’re more than happy if you did as well.


How about a 3D background in Mesh?



Aquarium 3D Background



Sure, why not… right?


They sky is the limit with the Poseidon Aquarium, and we look forward to seeing how you have made it your own.



What Kind of Fish Do You Own?


You’re probably wondering about this, and you have every right to. After all, most aquariums on marketplace that come with “fish” are really just a fish texture on a prim spinning in a circle or keyframe animated (or even a particle emitter). Of the sculpted and mesh fish out there, most will tell you that they swim in Linden Water. So what are you to do?


Believe it or not, we’re big fans of the *SnoWStylZ* brand of fish for the Poseidon Aquarium. They are fully sculpted, low impact, and scripted to move around like… well… fish. Chrom Snook has done a wonderful job with these (and the many other types of) fish offered via the SnoWStylZ store on Marketplace.


For a mere 80 L$, you can fill your tank with excellent looking fish.


SnoWStylZ Store:







Where Do I Find Those Books?


Another excellent question. All of the books (and more) shown in the product images on the shelf are available from our store:


The Universal Book Prop 



Nathaniel Hawthorne - The Scarlet Letter C_001Each comes with a held version and a shelf prop included, so you can use it on the go and have a copy sitting on your shelves at home.


As of this writing, we have 22 classic books available for purchase (50L$) and they are all functional props – meaning that clicking on them will allow you to rad the book online, download an epub version, and even an audiobook version if it is available.


This fully functional and highly customizable aquarium set is used in my own home in Yarnia, which is where the product pictures are taken.




Additional Details


Land Impact


Aquarium: 12
Stand: 6
Fish Food: 1


* The Poseidon Aquarium is (unfortunately) not compatible with the *SnoWStylZ* Fish feeding system, as we actually have no idea how it is implemented to talk to the fish from the creator. This is easily remedied (however) by setting your SnoWStylZ fish to “Holiday” mode so you don’t have to feed them. Maybe in the future (if Chrom Snook would allow) we can make our Aquarium Feeding effect actually feed their fish properly. This is on our list of things to look into proper in the first quarter of 2017.

Revenge of the Prosumer

Anything you can do, we can do better…






Ah, where to begin on this one?


It would seem that companies such as Nintendo haven’t learned how to deal with the prosumer culture in the post-millennium age. Of course there is the obligatory DMCA for things like Another Metroid 2 Remake (AM2R) which was/is a fan made recreation of Metroid 2 with luscious graphics (updated to a 16 bit feel), but more importantly (for this post) I’d like to touch on Nintendo’s latest prosumer blunder:


The NES Classic Edition.


A little back-story is in order here.


So essentially, Nintendo had this bright idea to make a mini version of their classic NES system pre-loaded with 20 NES games. This seemed like a great idea for nostalgia collectors the world over, except there are a few problems if you’re keen to notice.


  1. It’s essentially a customized emulator on hardware
  2. It only offers 30 games to play
  3. Nintendo completely screwed up the supply chain


What ended up happening is that Nintendo simply didn’t make the supply of these NES Classic systems high enough for the demand, and in fact had restricted the supply so much that they ended up sold out before they even went on sale to the public. Whether this is because of scalpers buying the entire supply of a store, or the store employees themselves buying them up before they went on sale, what we can say is that as a result of this extremely limited supply, the NES Classic is now showing up on eBay being resold for as much as a few hundred dollars per unit.



If we haven’t learned anything from this situation (or prior situations), then as a company you’ll just sit there with a smug smile thinking you control the entire supply and demand process, and that the peasants will take whatever you give them.


Which, we should all know is patently untrue these days.


The consumer actually has more choices than whatever Nintendo is willing to offer when it comes to this, and it is Nintendo themselves who created the situation by which the consumers would opt for those alternatives instead of paying Nintendo for a coveted NES Classic, or paying an arm and a leg on eBay for one on auction.


This is, after all, the age of the prosumer (as I’ve outlined before); Which is to say that when a company who owns intellectual property doesn’t offer what the consumers want to buy, those consumers will now go ahead and make something better themselves and ignore the company.


Case in point – Another Metroid 2 Remake and Pokemon Uranium.


A company such as Nintendo, in their archaic thinking, simply sends their lawyers out with a DMCA storm and threats of lawsuits to take down the content and kill the projects. Of course, these fan-made games comply and take down the direct links to the files being hosted. The lawyers at Nintendo pat themselves on the back and move on, thinking they’ve killed the Hydra.


Of course, we should all know better than that.


This is the Internet. So long as somebody, somewhere, has a copy of the installation and people want access to it, then that access will be made available all across the world in hundreds (or even thousands and millions) of locations and methods.


In effect, the people of the world will simply mirror the files all around the world, or they will put them up on Bittorrent sites for peer-to-peer sharing.


Companies like Nintendo are the sort that believe cutting off a single head of a Hydra is enough to have killed it, when in fact the Hydra simply grew thousands of heads and continued on whether they liked it or not.


This is historically known as “The Streisand Effect”, named after an incident where a photographer took pictures of Barbara Streisand’s house and put them online. Barbara Streisand promptly tried to file a cease and desist (DMCA) to get those pictures removed from the Internet, which the photographer complied with but then the entire Internet made the pictures available in thousands and millions of locations around the world as mirrors.




Barbara Streisand’s Estate in Malibu, California



The Streisand effect is the phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide, remove, or censor a piece of information has the unintended consequence of publicizing the information more widely, usually facilitated by the Internet. It is an example of psychological reactance, wherein once people are aware something is being kept from them, their motivation to access and spread the information is increased.


It is named after American entertainer Barbra Streisand, whose 2003 attempt to suppress photographs of her residence in Malibu, California, inadvertently drew further public attention to it. Similar attempts have been made, for example, in cease-and-desist letters to suppress numbers, files, and websites. Instead of being suppressed, the information receives extensive publicity and media extensions such as videos and spoof songs, often being widely mirrored across the Internet or distributed on file-sharing networks.



You would think that nearly 15 years later, companies would already know this and try to avoid the consequences. But alas, they continue making the same, tired, mistakes.



For example:




Another Metroid 2 Remake






Pokemon Uranium


Obvious Disclaimer is Obvious: Blah blah, not condoning piracy. Downloading these are at your own risk. Nintendo reserves the right to kick in your door and force feed you 30 year old Nintendo Cereal while holding your eyes open like in A Clockwork Orange to make you watch the Super Mario Bros Super Show on endless repeat… later beating every coin from the Mushroom Kingdom out of your mooching ass. Links listed here purely for educational purposes…


Once again, the Prosumer wins, and Nintendo spends a stupid amount of time and money trying to shut down something while only throwing fuel on the fire.


Let’s make something clear:


In the age of the prosumer, it is completely pointless to try and stop the proliferation of something. There is supply and demand – and if the companies which own these intellectual properties are not meeting that demand, then the consumers who want such things will meet the demand themselves. The prosumer isn’t going to bother asking Nintendo for permission to do something, either (let alone any other company). They are just going to do it with or without you.


I know, it sucks ass right? If you’re a company with IP, you’re likely losing sleep over all of this and slamming your fist on the table in board meetings trying to figure out how to stop this proliferation of unauthorized media.


The sooner you come to grips with the realization that you cannot control the entirety of your IP, but with some common sense, you can help guide the direction of it and reward good behavior, the easier this is going to go in the long run.


If you make any attempt to stop the proliferation of your Intellectual Property in a hyper-connected world, you will more than likely fail miserably. Of course, you also have to come to grips with the reality that “good behavior” is entirely redefined in the modern age.


The only thing you can do is see the demand and meet it with a superior product. Barring that, you need to have a plan in place which collaborates with the prosumers to create those products. You may not exercise authoritarian control over your IP in this case, but at least you get to have some manner of say in what happens, giving hard limits to the prosumer you’re working with but ultimately letting them express their creative freedom.


So, back to the NES Classic and Nintendo’s blunder (once again).


As I’ve established, it’s essentially running an emulator… and it comes with 30 NES games built in.


That is Nintendo’s first mistake. Breaking the first rule of Prosumer culture is sure to do you in -


If you are appropriating something that the prosumer community already has had access to for many years, and trying to pass it off as your own, you had better bring something to the table which is superior than what the prosumers already have or else they will.


In this case, Nintendo thought appropriating an emulator and branding it for themselves was going to win them brownie points. This falls under the thinking “We can release an emulator but you can’t because we think it’s illegal”.


Which is a total farce at best, and sleazy corporate practice. Some jack-ass in a board room somewhere thought it was a brilliant idea to grab a free emulator, throw in a few games and repackage it for sale.


It would be a good idea if it wasn’t for the fact that much more powerful emulation options exist, in the same package, for less money, on pretty much every conceivable system known to mankind.


In the case of the NES Classic, there is the RetroPie Arcade. 



RetroPie Logo



Lesson 1: Don’t try to pass off an inferior emulator when better options exist from the people who originally made the emulators and hardware.


For instance, you can simply get a Raspberry Pi 3 kit and emulate pretty much everything from NES, SNES, N64, Atari, Arcade Games, Master System, Genesis, Playstation, XBox, Gamecube, and more all on the same system.



Game Over, Nintendo…



And of course, we (as prosumers) can simply 3D Print an NES Classic shell to house it all in. But then we can go one step further (because why not?) and 3D print little NES Cartridges that actually work in the Mini NES via NFC Tags.


This is something Nintendo should have thought of, honestly… because this version of the NES Mini that somebody simply built themselves is by far superior in every conceivable manner to the official NES Classic.


With the NFC Mini NES Cartridges, Nintendo could have had a product that could expand indefinitely, and opened the door to selling the entire NES library as additional games beyond the built in 30 games.


How would that work, you may ask? Let’s take a look…



And then a prosumer blows Nintendo out of the water… surprise, surprise.



Well, since the NFC is really just telling the system what game to load from a pre-installed list, and the NES Mini (Pi3 version) has Bluetooth and Wi-Fi access built in, it could just download the game if the person doesn’t have it already.


And when the owner doesn’t have the mini-cartridge to plug in, the owner just doesn’t get to play it (I guess). But then Nintendo would be back to square one by trying to limit the options through their own channel when the prosumer can build something better that allows people play literally every classic game that exists in a single package.


To be perfectly honest, the entire NES Library itself only takes up roughly 200 MB of storage (I just checked).


Let’s say the NES Mini had a built in storage capacity of 32GB, as these flash storage mediums are pretty cheap now at the 32 GB range (about $40 retail).


Then a fully functional NES Mini can hold every NES, SNES, N64, Master System, Genesis, etc game and probably have room to spare.


Here’s the breakdown -


The entire SNES library clocks in about 1.2GB, the entire NES library clocks in about 200MB (including Famicom Disk System games), and the entire N64 library clocks in at about 7.5GB total. You could easily throw in the entire line of Gameboy games (Gameboy, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance) and still not hit the end of that storage.


So let’s say Nintendo put the entire NES through N64 library on an NES Mini… they would only be using about 10GB of that 32GB storage. Well, Nintendo can’t do this because the legal hoops they have to jump through due to all the third party publishers and their games would be ridiculous. But this highlights a major flaw in the way companies do things today concerning the usage of Intellectual Property – in that just because Nintendo can’t do it, doesn’t mean the Prosumer isn’t going to do it.


And in fact, they already have done it. Just because companies and IP owners can’t get their collective shit together and unify on the same page for the greater good doesn’t mean the prosumers aren’t going to skip them and do it without you.


So we have an NES Mini with a functional NFC reader, loaded with every game from multiple systems and built in emulators (plural) from multiple classic systems.


Well damn, son… the Prosumer kicked your ass.



Look at it like this:


Companies are like the overblown, clueless Villains and the Prosumer Culture is essentially One Punch Man. They will collectively kick your ass in a single blow, and not even be trying, while you will be throwing literally everything you’ve got at it. Just by getting into the fight, you’ve already lost and haven’t realize it yet.



Every company versus the Internet…



Your only hope is to work with them and not try to defeat them.


Rule #1: Work within the system


You may not have defined that system or the culture that resides in it, but you are ultimately subject to it whether you like it or not. The same holds true in general (The Internet) and billions of people worldwide. The times are changing, and we need to evolve to work within these new sets of rules or we will ultimately be our own undoing. (See also: Blockbuster Video)



Don’t be like Blockbuster Video…



And that’s the point of today’s post.


Nintendo (and really any company) should ask an all important question before they try to release a new product  based on their existing intellectual property, or file a DMCA notice, or incorporate some sort of DRM technology:


Is there a better option available than what we are about to do, and if so, can the consumer make it on their own? How can we work with them for the mutual benefit of everyone involved?


Then, of course, if the answer to that question is a resounding Yes, then the company should reach out to the community first and see about a collaboration to make that new thing with them.


Ironically, it is Nintendo themselves that already used this to their advantage in the creation of Super Mario Maker.






How in the hell Nintendo got it right and then promptly forgot everything they just learned is beyond me.


In the case of AM2R and Pokemon Uranium, Nintendo should have offered some sort of partnership, clearly denoting those games as Fan-made and not officially from Nintendo, but existing with the full blessing of Nintendo. The same would be true in the case of the ingenious NES Mini design… except that they could have reached out to enterprising prosumers online asking if anyone wanted to design a better version of what they were thinking about – ie: Nintendo explains the premise and what they would like it to do, and why… and then see if any prosumers (fans) can make it better. Then Nintendo would work with those fans to create the end-product that is far superior.


This is how a company should operate in the age of the prosumer culture. Because the prosumer culture is going to operate like this with or without you, and trying to cut off the head off the Hydra isn’t going to slay the beast, but instead just make it multiply.


In the Age of the Prosumer, you either have the most powerful ally in the world on your side (your biggest fans) to create amazing things, or you’re fighting the most powerful collective in the world (your biggest fans) and losing.


When in Rome, Nintendo… Do as the Romans do.

The Evolution of Virtual Worlds

A brief overview @ OSCC this Saturday


This Saturday @ 10am PST in Keynote 1
Open Simulator Community Conference





It can be said that I have a very excellent ability to see the writing on the wall and predict the trends before they happen when it comes to various things.


After all, I predicted that the Cubs would win the World Series this year (and how it would happen), I’ve predicted that real world locations would become sponsored locations for mobile gaming to entice players to visit (Pokemon GO), and even in a comprehensive report for Sears Holding Company that the future of retail is Zero Barrier (everything is tagged and automatically scanned just by walking out with it) which Amazon is now testing in live physical stores.


So you can imagine that I get asked the sixty-four thousand dollar question about the future of the Metaverse quite a lot…



SLIDE 01 - Questions



While I can't get into a comprehensive presentation or cover all the talking points in 20 minutes (because, let's face it... we've been at this for many years and still haven't hit all the bases yet), I've chosen to highlight a handful of trends that I think are important and will change the entire paradigm of interaction for the Metaverse.


I will, however, be on a later panel that same day (3pm PST) where I'm sure more will come up, and I'll be available via my booth at Expo 3 for a sit down discussion if you'd like.


I look forward to seeing you there!

Nov 9, 2016


Somebody just saved the world.


So it’s the aftermath of the 2016 elections and we’re now welcoming (begrudgingly) our new commander in chief, Donald J. Trump.


There are millions of people today pointing fingers, gnashing teeth, and highly upset that Hillary Clinton didn’t win. I’ve seen people on Twitter pointing the finger at people like me (and even directly) for not supporting Hillary Clinton to stop a Trump presidency.





I get it… I really do.


But let’s look at this reasonably for a minute.


I’d like to begin by saying that I am in no way a supporter of Clinton or Trump. You should already know that from my last post. They are both psychopaths by definition. To make matters worse, I see a nation that went from Occupy Wall Street protests, against the 1% – the culture of greed, corruption, and destruction at the expense of the “99%”, to a nation that willingly supported the literal embodiment of everything it just got done saying was the problem with this country and the world while wholly ignoring options that were exactly the thing they wanted from those protests (candidates like Jill Stein).


I’m having a bit of a hard time trying to reconcile this disconnect from common sense in our general population.


But when we look at the bigger picture, I think things start adding up a bit more.


Let’s begin by saying – Trump didn’t actually win. For all the people going on about those who didn’t support Clinton enough to stop Trump, just stop… you’re making yourselves look bad.


Hillary Rodham Clinton actually had the popular vote, and still lost. Which is to say, the public did support her in overwhelming numbers which should have been (in any other election) a guaranteed path to victory.


There was literally nothing you or I could have done to influence that further. It wasn’t the vote that counted in this election, or influenced it. It wasn’t lack of popular support at all. So please stop pointing fingers at people and trying to blame them for getting Trump elected. It’s an idiotic and tired argument.


The reason Donald J. Trump is now President of the United States of America has absolutely nothing to do with yours or my votes. He won because of the Electoral College, which is to say that the electoral college stepped in and overrode the majority vote against the will of the people.


I’m not really sure the reality of what just happened has set in with anyone. Let me spell it out a little clearer for you:


Tens of millions of popular votes definitively supporting a candidate enough to have gotten her elected as the next President of the United States were just negated against the popular will of the people.


For all of the people patting themselves on the back for voting Trump, you can stop now. Your vote had nothing to do with it. If it did, he would have lost because he didn’t have enough votes to beat Hillary legitimately. In fact, nobody’s vote actually counted except those cast by the Electoral College. People you don’t know, and who weren’t elected or selected by you, just cancelled your votes.



What the F@#K Just Happened?


As I was saying in my prior post, both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are psychopaths. Both exhibit a majority of the behaviors in the 20 point checklist to define what a psychopath is.


But only one of those two psychopaths were genuinely dangerous to the world.






The intelligence community on the whole, knew how bad Hillary Clinton actually was, and continually tried to warn the American public by leaking all of those emails to show us. It wasn’t Russia… it was our own Intelligence Community (FBI and CIA) staging a coup for the greater good.


Unfortunately, the problem is that no matter what they released – the American public simply refused to believe it, and their boss (Comey) in conjunction with the Department of Justice (Loretta Lynch) were both in the pocket of Hillary, and so no matter how bad the evidence was, no matter how blatant it was, no matter how much of a monster Clinton turned out to be – with direct evidence to prove it, Clinton was effectively shielded from repercussion all the way up to the current standing President (Barack Obama).


In the position that they were in, the corruption went all the way to the top (literally), and their hands were tied. At least, in the more obvious ways.


I don’t blame the entire FBI or CIA for being in the pocket of Clinton… just the higher ups that made the final decision. But that leaves an entire agency of intelligence community that were looking at this information and knowing full well what was going on, and having their hands tied about doing anything about it.


They were stuck sitting there watching a nightmare come true, and being made powerless to stop it. They were staring down a complete and total corporate coup against the American people.


In the bigger picture, the intelligence community was hoping it would be enough to present the blatant corruption and criminal activity to the public and have the general public change their mind. In effect, the FBI and DOJ were being held hostage by Clinton – unable to do anything because she had them by the balls (so to speak).


In a way, I would likely say that Clinton had them “under heel” because she was blackmailing them or had enough sway over key players to ruin their careers and lives. This also explains why Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren suddenly joined forces with Hillary Clinton out of left field; We’re talking about two politicians that have spent their entire career literally opposing the very corruption that Hillary Clinton represented.


Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have even (on multiple occasions) absolutely opposed Hillary Clinton and pointed out how corrupt and criminal she actually is.


That being said, the rabbit hole went a lot deeper, and I don’t think the general public really appreciates what just happened. If anything, we as a general population, should actually be thanking the FBI and CIA for overriding the popular vote and making Trump our next president.


I know… you just read that and grabbed the gasoline to burn down this blog. But hold up a minute and hear me out. I don’t support Trump (remember?).


The FBI and CIA literally just saved the world.



Whatch’a Talking ‘Bout, Will?


It is a common fact that the intelligence community knows a hell of a lot more about the real situation in the world than we, the public, likely ever do. What we think is going on is often just a fabricated story for the public while what is actually going on is kept behind closed doors (normally).


You can see this in a movie called Lord of War, which is probably the only Nicholas Cage movie I liked. Lord of War was actually based on a true story.


Allow me to show you how the world really works, sunshine.



Welcome to the real world…




Yes, this is exactly how the real world works, kids… Some of the most ridiculously over the top criminals are in a position of power whereby they simply cannot go to jail. If anything, they are routinely rewarded by the highest positions in the world to continue doing that job.


It’s not a conspiracy theory. It’s just how the real world works.


The job of the president is effectively to continue the illusion of choice, and keep people pre-occupied and divided. Throw the population a bone now and then, but behind closed doors it’s business as usual. The entire point is just to keep the citizens of the country complacent and distracted.


Of course, sometimes… you run into somebody who goes a little mad with power and jeopardizes the entire system. There is such a thing as too much corruption because if you are willing to abuse every conceivable method to take total control, and are willing to instigate going to war with Russia and China, which in turn would likely lead to our entire obliteration… well then you’ve actually gone too far.


You don’t threaten the entirety of humanity and the United States with the abuse of power, and that’s exactly what Hillary Clinton was doing.


The average citizen of the United States seems to be completely oblivious to the actual situation that unfolded in this election.


Let me spell it out:


Hillary Clinton was going to start World War III, with Russia and China.


This was actually a concerted effort starting with George W. Bush and the Iraq War after 9/11. Which again, I hate to tell you, actually was an inside job. It’s no more implausible than knowing that the United States government intentionally allowed Japan to attack Pearl Harbor and didn’t warn anybody for the sole purpose of convincing America to join the World War (which we were staunchly opposed to). This is how easily manipulated the general public actually is.


The entire path to Syria is/was premeditated.


This should be obvious if you listen to General Wesley Clark…



Premeditated War



But the reason given to General Wesley Clark was “I don’t know”.


Of course they didn’t know. Legitimately. Because they weren’t making the calls, just following the orders.


The real reason we went into Libya to assassinate Ghaddafi was simply because he was the head of the African Union and was proposing the Gold Dinar as a standard currency disconnected from the United States Dollar. Which in turn would have been the nail in he coffin for the United States, because in the Middle East, all it would take is for OPEC nations to adopt the Gold Dinar for Oil, and the Petrol Dollar collapses overnight.


This is the thing that General Wesley Clark didn’t know at the time, but he was partially correct about only being out there to secure the oil.


Who do you think was involved when Ghaddafi was assassinated?


Yep. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.


And there we have it…


Were there terrorists? Well, it depends on your perspective. The only thing Ghaddafi was guilty of was challenging the United States Dollar by being a sovereign country.


It’s easier to topple those regimes, however and that’s exactly why we chose them in the first place. It’s also the reason we don’t dare go anywhere near North Korea – because they have nukes and aren’t afraid to use them. Unfortunately our “easy” target of Syria became a problem when Syria (not being completely stupid about actual global politics and seeing what we’ve already been doing out there) invited Russia to help them out in the conflict and not the United States. The only country the United States isn’t so eager to get into a war with (aside from China)… which put the plan to go into Syria on the back burner, or should have.


If we got into a war with Russia, they would absolutely destroy us. The reason being is that they are allies with China, and the combined might of those two countries poses an actual threat to the United States.


Syria, pretty much just saved themselves from the United States bullies.


Problem is, Hillary Clinton didn’t think this was a problem at all and still insisted on getting involved with Syria (No-Fly Zone). So to her, this was business as usual, even though the intelligence community knew we needed to do a full stop to avoid total obliteration.



Common Sense


Which is to say, we might be arming the world… we might be corrupt and always at war as a business opportunity, but even the most corrupt people in the government know it’s bad for business to risk obliterating themselves and everyone on earth just to make some money. There is a common sense limit, however ridiculously corrupt that limit is – it doesn’t include mutually assured destruction. You can’t spend the money if everyone is dead.


Hillary didn’t seem to take the hint.


Absolute power had corrupted her absolutely, and she was ready to march us into total decimation.


As the General above states: instituting a No-Fly Zone wouldn’t require going to war with Russia and Syria… actually enforcing it would.


This was even relayed by Vladimir Putin himself in the World Economic Forum, in no uncertain terms:



Blatantly clear…


When Vladimir Putin himself is warning the United States, it’s time to back off and take a chill pill. But not Hillary!




But why Trump!?



Because they needed to choose a candidate that wouldn’t raise suspicion if they elevated them to win. If they went with Jill Stein, it would immediately be suspicious because she was around 5% and it wasn’t plausible for her to win, let alone the Electoral College to vote for her.



GOP 2016 Trump


So they chose Donald Trump.


At this point it’s probably not such a bad idea to be on good terms with Russia, now is it? And now that Donald Trump is President, we’re on good terms with Russia again.


World War III averted.


Thanks to a bunch of unknown FBI and CIA operatives who had the guts to cut Hillary off at the pass through the Electoral College.


That being said, I’ve used the whole “they” pronoun and alluded to the FBI and CIA the entire time, but curiously (if you were paying attention), I also began this post with a picture of Anonymous.


Well, it’s because I believe there is an obvious connection to be made.


Before the election, Anonymous on their Facebook page made it a deliberate point to start supporting Donald Trump, even though Anonymous doesn’t necessarily agree with most of what Donald Trump stands for. In all actuality, Donald Trump is pretty much the embodiment and personification of everything that was opposed during Occupy Movement, which Anonymous was very happily supporting.


If you were to look at their website you’ll notice that Anon has no love of Hillary Clinton. But that isn’t necessarily an endorsement of Trump… Remember, Anonymous was there during Occupy and so the ideal of that mentality would have been represented by Jill Stein or Bernie Sanders… So what gives?


Well, when you think of Anonymous, you probably just think of a bunch of hackers in a basement someplace – some disenfranchised millennials. But the idea of Anonymous is that it could be anyone, anywhere.


As a collective, Anonymous has been getting alarmingly more sophisticated (and seemingly precognitive) in predicting what is about to happen.


There has (also) been the inclination that maybe Anonymous had been “infiltrated” by the FBI or CIA. But what if… what if members of the CIA and FBI were actually participants of Anonymous for the greater good?


I think that would explain a hell of a lot.


See also Lord of War. Plausible deniability for doing things well outside of the law, but things that needed to happen in order to combat the corruption ongoing which had a total disregard and immunity from the very same laws.


And so, Anonymous becomes the effective go-to hive mind when shit needs to get done in the intelligence agency, and the intelligence agency feeds Anonymous with just enough information to be effective.


Therefore, you suddenly see warnings from Anonymous about WW3 on their site, youtube channel etc… and very anti-Clinton. But we know Anon aligns better with Occupy Wall Street than actually aligned with Wall Street…


So it was a strategic maneuver to elect Trump in order to effectively save the world from total annihilation at the hands of Hillary Clinton.


The up side to this is that Jill Stein did get 5% of the vote this time around, which (by election laws) means the Green Party is declared a minor party and given ten million dollars in funding to work with for the next election.


I think in the grand scheme of things, if we wanted to save the world in the long run and implement all those progressive values we were protesting for and supported wildly in Bernie Sanders… we had to make sure that there was a planet left to work with in that future.


Short term loss, long term gain.


Checkmate, Hillary Clinton.


Let’s hope Trump isn’t as much of an idiot as he makes himself out to be, or else all of this was for naught and we’ll be right back to marching down the road to oblivion again.


Now if you’ll excuse me, I feel like I need to go download those Playboy photos of our new First Lady.

1984 Was Not Supposed To Be An Instruction Manual



1984 Instruction Manual



TL;DR You should probably vote for Jill Stein. She isn’t a psychopath. Continue reading for a more comprehensive reasoning. This is worth your time to read, I promise you. A topic like this just can’t be properly vetted out in 140 characters on Twitter or via a social media post. So this is my answer to all the Hillary and Trump supporters out there.



To say that the current political climate for the United States elections is a heated situation would be a total underestimation.


The lesser of two evils no longer serves as a valid choice when those choices have reached a point of diminishing returns whereby the difference between two choices has become increasingly inconsequential, and therefore, indistinguishable from one another in effectively being a better option over the other.


What does one do when both options are equally bad?

Damned if you do, and damned if you don’t?


In the United States political system there are multiple options which can be utilized in order to break the cycle of irrational thinking. Outside of the Republican and Democratic parties, there are Third Party Candidates.


But what happens when the two major parties of a country have become so corrupted that they have absolutely no interest in losing the control and power which they have? In this instance, we see the implementation of corruption, lying, and deliberate doublethink mentality barraged upon the population who (apparently) are easily manipulated into believing it.


In this post, I will be exploring the candidates in a way that explains why they are or or not a good choice for this country. Before we do, it would serve us best to first define what our problems actually are as a country (and planet) so we can identify if these candidates are actually in a position to fix those problems.



Identifying the Problems



Climate Change


This isn’t up for debate. If you think Climate Change is some kind of hoax, then you  must know a lot more than the scientists at NOAA and NASA. Climate Change is a number one priority for the human race and this planet as a whole. By systematically ignoring the wanton damage we do to this planet, we are on a path to human extinction.


Human extinction, if the concept hasn’t sunk in, is where humanity as a whole ceases to exist forever. That’s the death of about 8 billion people or more.


In short, our own actions and inactions are going to cause the complete and total genocide of humanity, and every living thing on this planet, unless we change our ways (and quickly).


With our usage of Fossil Fuels, we continue driving our planet into oblivion. Our dependency on these fossil fuels will be our undoing. It would be safe to say, then, that we have a priority to reverse this trend to extinction and to find better alternatives to fossil fuels, and I would go so far as to say nuclear reactors. Both are a danger to the environment for the long haul.


During 2016, literally every single month was the hottest month on record. In India, a heat wave hit that was so harsh it literally melted roads.






In the worst case, temperatures hit a ridiculous 123.8 degrees Fahrenheit.


I don’t know about you, but I’d call this a priority.


Hurricane Katrina, Superstorm Sandy, and so on…


With the inclusion of Fracking into the equation, and the wastewater disposal from these sites, we’re blatantly destroying the environment with the full blessing of the agency that should be completely against it (the EPA). This cannot be explained as anything other that completely asinine.


More so when you realize that oil and gas companies refuse to disclose 10 percent of the hundreds of chemicals they use during hydraulic fracturing, according to a new analysis by the Environmental Protection Agency. The revelation comes in a major installment of the EPA's study of the potential risks of fracking on drinking water.


Let us not forget the contamination of our drinking water and flaming tap water problem in towns near fracking locations.



This is unacceptable



And while we’re on the subject of water contamination, let us not forget the story of Flint, Michigan.




Profits over people?



To make matters worse in a situation like this, Nestle was allowed to pump the clean water while the residents were left with lead poisoned brown sludge. Nestle, unsurprisingly, filtered and bottled that water and sold it back to the residents of Flint, Michigan.



Profits over people (again)



I think it’s safe to say that this sort of behavior cannot be tolerated anymore and any candidate (or constituent) that is willing to defend these behaviors should be labelled a threat to humanity.



Obvious Solution


The obvious solution to all of this environmental catastrophe we are wreaking is to make a concerted and unified effort to switch our energy to renewables and to enforce much stricter regulations on polluting entities. By incentivizing renewable energy over subsidizing Oil, Gas and Coal we create new jobs to take the place of the old jobs while eliminating our dependency on fossil fuels.


It’s good for humanity, good for the environment, and likely will put a stop to needless wars – since that’s what we’re constantly going to war over (oil).


I will side with a candidate who promotes these ideals because it’s common sense. It doesn’t require more than three seconds worth of thought to understand it is the best option.



War (What Is It Good For?)


Absolutely nothing. Say it again, now.


The United States spends 54% of it’s entire budget on the military, which is the highest in the world. So much higher is this spending that it beats the next six countries on the list and they are our allies.





But we don’t have the money to put into the actual country itself for Education, Social Security, Science, Medicare & Health, and so on?


Are you fucking kidding me?


Look at that graph. Look at it.


Over half a trillion dollars just for the military alone?


I would support a candidate that wanted peace and to effectively reduce the military requirement of this country in order to put that money toward actually making this country a better place.







Get rid of the corruption and we solve this.



It is no secret that our students are at a major disadvantage in today’s situation. Grade school through High School is continually and systematically cut in funding, while getting a College Education has left us a nation full of graduates who can never pay back the ridiculous and absolutely predatory debts required to afford attendance.



Total student loan debt in the United States has tripled over the past decade to a whopping $1.232 trillion.


If we can afford over a half a trillion dollars for our military, we sure as hell can afford to educate our kids properly (and freely).


There is no reason whatsoever (other than greed) that people must enter into crippling debt just to get an education that is required in a job market that is all but drying up to begin with.


Unless we’re counting the possibility that corporate interests want it all. So maybe we should stop those corporate interests and the representatives of that system from running the country?


Obviously, being educated is a threat to that establishment – so is it a wonder that actually getting a good education has become increasingly something that only wealthy people can afford?


We should probably put an end to that corruption and collective dumbing down of our nation.


In the bigger picture, then, it makes sense to support initiatives (and a candidate) that wants to fund public education and cancel student debts which have gotten out of control. It would make sense to support a candidate that would enact measures to ensure that undergraduate college is free to the public.


Bernie Sanders wanted to do this, but as we already know… Hillary Clinton completely and utterly screwed him out of the nomination. This isn’t even something you can debate on – it was flatly in the Wikileaks disclosure of Hillary Clinton’s and her campaign’s emails.


So, a candidate that wants to find ways to continue those policies to make America better for everyone is probably a candidate you and I should support.



Health Care


Did you know that pharmaceutical advertising to the general public is actually illegal in most of the world, except curiously the United States. In most of the developed world, they also have Single Payer Healthcare which has drastically lowered the price gouging of insurance companies and drug companies on the average citizen.


It’s a simple premise really… you pay your taxes? Congratulations, you’re fully covered. Just go to the doctor when you need to.


Why aren’t we doing this already?


Well… the answer is effectively greed. There is simply too much money being made by ripping off the American people to warrant any change. I mean, why would the crooks want to change the system that benefits them most? Why would lawmakers want to hurt the interests of their biggest supporters?


(see also: Congress, United States Government, et al)



Meanwhile in ‘Murica!


It’s not like The United States can justify the inflated and exorbitant healthcare costs with better quality of healthcare, either. As a matter of fact, while we routinely pay the most for healthcare, we actually rank last in quality.


I hate to burst your bubble, but we’re getting royally screwed.





$15 Per Hour Minimum Wage

Also: Universal Basic Income Transition


The current Federal Minimum wage in the United States is $7.25 per hour. While many sates have minimum wages that are marginally higher than this, and some states have recently enacted laws to raise their own minimum wages to $15 within the next 2-6 years, those marginal increases just aren’t enough to live on when taken into account the actual cost of living.


When we take into account the actual cost of living index per state, the minimum wage in those states is a poverty wage at best by comparison.


Include the absolutely crap-tastic jobs market where the norm seems to be part-time at minimum wage and we have a serious problem. See, “part-time” also means “under 40 hours per week” which is to say 36 hours a week is just fine. Part-time also often omits things like comprehensive healthcare coverage, so what little these people are making gets cut even further just to pay for that too.


But it gets worse – Companies like Wal-Mart intentionally pay their workers as close to minimum wage as they can get away with, thus forcing those workers to rely on government subsidies (welfare, food stamps, medicare, etc) just to make ends meet.


And since you’re working “part-time”, at near minimum wage, you have to juggle at least two part-time jobs to make ends meet. Good luck working the 80 hour work week, kids.


But that’s not even the crux of the problem.


The more we enact $15 minimum wages in the United States, the more those companies are going to get rid of those jobs as a result, either by outsourcing to a foreign country (slave labor) or by implementing various automation methods to get rid of those jobs.


So again, enjoy your $15 per hour job while you can get it. There will be less of them, and just as many people out of work as a result.


In a time when we used to employ a handful of people for the “front end” of a store (cashiers), we now have closed most of the front end and replaced those jobs with self-checkout. Where we used to have associates on the floor to help you out, companies (like Lowes, Home Depot, etc) are toying with the idea of using robots on the floor instead (Pepper, etc).


If you think this is something that’s just coming in the distant future, then think again. Lowes is already deploying these robots today.



There goes 70% of the associate jobs



So maybe the problem isn’t $15 minimum wage, though this is a short term application, but instead maybe we need to seriously start thinking about a Universal Basic Income to offset all of this automation.



Stack Up


Out of interest of brevity (because we can write on this for thousands of pages), let me just cut to the point. I’d like to first point out that the Republican and Democratic nominee are both psychopaths.


It’s a major claim, but let’s take a look at what traits a psychopath would have before we move on.




Signs and Symptoms of Psychopathy


The signs and symptoms of psychopathy are identified most commonly in scientific studies by Hare's 20-item Psychopathy Checklist-Revised. This checklist identifies the following as the symptoms and signs of psychopathy:


  1. Superficial charm and glibness
  2. Inflated sense of self-worth
  3. Constant need for stimulation
  4. Lying pathologically
  5. Conning others; being manipulative
  6. Lack of remorse or guilt
  7. Shallow emotions
  8. Callousness; lack of empathy
  9. Using others (a parasitic lifestyle)
  10. Poor control over behavior
  11. Promiscuous sexual behavior
  12. Behavioral problems early in life
  13. Lack of realistic, long-term goals
  14. Being impulsive
  15. Being irresponsible
  16. Blaming others and refusing to accept responsibility
  17. Having several marital relationships
  18. Delinquency when young
  19. Revocation of conditional release
  20. Criminal acts in several realms (criminal versatility)




Here’s the stack-up between candidates so far as I can tell.


Donald “Oompa Loompa” Trump


20140319_zaf_k03_008.jpgNarcissistic, xenophobic, pathological liar. Bigoted, racist, and the embodiment of literally everything we literally just got done saying was the problem with this country during the #Occupy Movement.


Known real estate con-man. Reality television and self-aggrandizing, self-entitled spoiled brat who lives in a fantasy world where he is the center of it. May also have very tiny hands.

And What About That Wall?


Might I remind you (Republicans) that it was Ronald Reagan himself that told Gorbachev to “Tear down this wall” in Berlin. Walls don’t work…



Tear down this wall.



There is a sense of bewilderment that in the year 2016, the Republican candidate would even suggest building a wall between our country and another, not to mention being so ego-driven that he would insist that Mexico would pay for it.


That’s not what we, as a country, are about. Have we learned nothing from the past? Japanese Internment Camps… Slavery… Genocide (Natives)… Racism… Xenophobia?


Is this what we’ve become? Count me out.


Building a wall simply wouldn’t work, and what’s worse… it would send a very bad message to the world. A message that we, ourselves, have become the very thing we opposed not so long ago.



You forgot about planes…



Aside from that… would you really trust a known real estate con-man when he tells you we should build the biggest, most expensive wall in the history of our country?



HillaryI’ll Say Anything For Your Vote” Clinton



Narcissistic, xenophobic, pathological liar. Bigoted, racist, and the embodiment of literally everything we literally just got done saying was the problem with this country during #Occupy Movement.


I’m just going to jump right into this one, because there is just way too much to cover.






  1. Superficial charm and glibness (Narcissism)
  2. Inflated sense of self-worth
  3. Constant need for stimulation
  4. Lying pathologically
  5. Conning others; being manipulative
  6. Lack of remorse or guilt
  7. Shallow emotions
  8. Callousness; lack of empathy
  9. Using others (a parasitic lifestyle)
  10. Poor control over behavior
  11. Promiscuous sexual behavior
  12. Lack of realistic, long-term goals
  13. Being impulsive
  14. Being irresponsible
  15. Blaming others and refusing to accept responsibility
  16. Having several marital relationships
  17. Criminal acts in several realms (criminal versatility)



Superficial Charm and Glibness




Promiscuous Sexual Behavior


What suddenly warranted re-opening the investigation into Hillary’s emails? Well, they found a bunch of emails that were supposedly “lost” just residing in Anthony Weiner’s possession. We’re talking about the guy who was busted for sexting a 15 year old girl. the content of those emails documented the involvement of the Clintons in what is known as the Lolita Express.



Just damn…



Callousness; lack of empathy



See Also: Benghazi Hearings





It shouldn’t be any surprise whatsoever that the Clinton Foundation is essentially a front for illegal activities. This has been effectively spelled out in the Wikileaks releases of Hillary’s emails (Podesta, etc). Coupled with Anthony Weiner’s emails implicating the Clintons as active participants on the Lolita Express and sex slavery… Jesus Christ almighty. How is anyone turning a blind eye to any of this?


The corruption and criminality is blatant



Pathological Liar




War with Russia


What kind of psychopath would intentionally want to incite a war with Syria and Russia? Hillary Clinton. Probably Trump as well, but that’s another story.


She is a proponent of instituting a No-Fly Zone over Syria, which on its own wouldn’t require going to war with Syria and Russia, but in order to actually enforce the airspace and restrictions (control the entire airspace), we would have to go to war with Syria and Russia. Probably China as well.



Enforcing it however…



One thing I want you to notice in the response is that he’s saying essentially this:


1. In order to actually enforce a no-fly zone over Syria, we’d have to go to war with Syria and Russia. That’s the only way to actually control the entire air space.


2. When asked again (the senators are splitting hairs), he goes on to say that simply enacting a No-Fly Zone wouldn’t require war with Russia and Syria.


So essentially, he’s flatly saying: Yeah, sure… you can enact a no-fly zone but if you want to actually enforce it effectively you’re going to have to go to war with Russia and Syria.


Why is this a bad idea?


Because Russia has developed a new Nuclear ICBM called the Satan 2 that can wipe out an area the size of Texas.



Put your head between your knees and kiss your ass goodbye


We all know that Hillary Clinton has already sold a war in the Middle East as (and I quote) “a business opportunity” before. So what do you think this woman is going to do with a half a trillion dollar military and an obsession with a Syria No-Fly Zone?



It’s just business as usual!



Racist? No, not Hillary!


Yep… Hillary.



Oh, but it gets much worse…



Filed Under: What the fuck?



I’m just going to stop right here because, to be honest, Hillary Clinton’s lying, corruption, racism, pandering and criminality might as well be her entire career.



Why Jill Stein?


Jill_Stein_by_Gage_SkidmoreWell, the obvious reason would be that the worst people can come up with for criticisms of Jill Stein don’t even hold a candle to the worst of Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. We’re talking the difference between two psychopaths and a peace loving, honest woman who isn’t mired in scandal.


Even in those criticisms, Hillary and Trump supporters often are citing patently false claims. For instance, Jill Stein is Anti-Vaccination. A simple search at Snopes can debunk this line.


Dr. Jill Stein is a physician. Why on earth would she be against vaccines entirely? That makes no sense at all.


How about the claim that her policies would be bad for the economy?


Well, again… I fail to actually see evidence of this from anywhere. If anything, Dr. Jill Stein has accurately explained the problem and how to go about fixing it. The only people who believe this would hurt the economy are the very people actively destroying it and benefitting at the expense of the other 90% of the country or the people who are susceptible to complete Doublethink (read: Trump and Hillary supporters).


See also: The wealthiest Americans and Corporations.



Equal time to state her case…



How about giving out “free education” and cancelling the debts of college students? Well, if you’ve seen Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, then you’ve heard just one of the ideas on the table for doing this – but that entire segment was entirely disingenuous. See, when Last Week Tonight reached out to the Jill Stein campaign to get those positions, they provided them with a larger list of possible methods to go about accomplishing this feat – only one of which was the possibility of using the Federal Reserve as a Quantitative Easing mechanism.


In a recent issue of Rolling Stone magazine, Jill Stein corrected the record calling the segment from Last Week Tonight “A deceptive attack”. Which is to say – They didn’t do their homework, or willingly omitted the facts just to slant the view in a negative manner. Which, in my book makes John Oliver a complete douchebag.


See, none of these solutions being proposed are really “whackadoodle” material. They were the same sorts of approaches that Senator Bernie Sanders proposed when he was running in the primaries.


So why is it that these same platform policies are perfectly alright and garner a massive base of support among voters when Bernie Sanders says it, but when Jill Stein says it, it’s suddenly all far fetched and impossible?


At the end of the day, I’m more concerned that a very large portion of the population of the United States of America have become so blind that they are willingly and gleefully supporting one of two psychopaths to be their leader. Your support for them says less about them and more about you.


After all, they are supposed to be representing their constituents, and possibly the majority, right?


What does it say about the majority of Americans when their leaders are exhibiting all the behaviors of a psychopath and they are outright rejecting sane and progressive options that would massively benefit the entire country (and world) in the process?


Instead of comparing Jill Stein to the psychopaths (because let’s be honest, we’d be hard pressed to match any of those traits to her in the first place), how about I just give her the space here and let her platform do the talking -


You can go here for the full rundown:



Jill Stein’s Platform
A Green New Deal:

Create millions of jobs by transitioning to 100% clean renewable energy by 2030, and investing in public transit, sustainable agriculture, and conservation.

Jobs as a Right:

Create living-wage jobs for every American who needs work, replacing unemployment offices with employment offices. Advance workers rights to form unions, achieve workplace democracy, and keep a fair share of the wealth they create.

End Poverty:

Guarantee economic human rights, including access to food, water, housing, and utilities, with effective anti-poverty programs to ensure every American a life of dignity.

Health Care as a Right:

Establish an improved “Medicare For All” single-payer public health insurance program to provide everyone with quality health care, at huge savings.

Education as a Right:

Abolish student debt to free a generation of Americans from debt servitude. Guarantee tuition-free, world-class public education from pre-school through university. End high stakes testing and public school privatization.

A Just Economy:

Set a $15/hour federal minimum wage. Break up “too-big-to-fail” banks and democratize the Federal Reserve. Reject gentrification as a model of economic development. Support development of worker and community cooperatives and small businesses. Make Wall Street, big corporations, and the rich pay their fair share of taxes. Create democratically run public banks and utilities. Replace corporate trade agreements with fair trade agreements.

Protect Mother Earth:

Lead on a global treaty to halt climate change. End destructive energy extraction: fracking, tar sands, offshore drilling, oil trains, mountaintop removal, and uranium mines. Protect our public lands, water supplies, biological diversity, parks, and pollinators. Label GMOs, and put a moratorium on GMOs and pesticides until they are proven safe. Protect the rights of future generations.

Racial Justice Now:

End police brutality and mass incarceration. Create a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to understand and eliminate the legacy of slavery that lives on as pervasive racism in the economy, education, housing and health. Ensure that communities control their police rather than police controlling our communities, by establishing police review boards and full time investigators to look in to all cases of death in police custody. Demilitarize the police.

Freedom and Equality:

Expand women’s rights, protect LGBTQIA+ people from discrimination, defend indigenous rights and lands, and create a welcoming path to citizenship for immigrants. Protect the free Internet, legalize marijuana/hemp, and treat substance abuse as a public health problem, not a criminal problem.

Justice for All:

Restore our Constitutional rights, terminate unconstitutional surveillance and unwarranted spying, end persecution of government and media whistleblowers, close Guantanamo, abolish secret kill lists, and repeal indefinite detention without charge or trial.

Peace and Human Rights:

Establish a foreign policy based on diplomacy, international law, and human rights. End the wars and drone attacks, cut military spending by at least 50% and close the 700+ foreign military bases that are turning our republic into a bankrupt empire. Stop U.S. support and arms sales to human rights abusers, and lead on global nuclear disarmament.

Empower the People:

Abolish corporate personhood. Protect voters’ rights by establishing a constitutional right to vote.  Enact electoral reforms that break the big money stranglehold and create truly representative democracy: public campaign financing, ranked-choice voting, proportional representation, and open debates.





I seriously struggle to think of the sane and rational person who can read through that platform and still manage to support Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump willingly.



“If you don’t vote for Hillary, you’re going to let Trump win!”


No, the people that voted for Trump or Hillary are the ones that elected them into office. We are responsible for the choices we make – not others. Stop trying to shame and blame third party supporters for bad choices the majority keep on making with gleeful abandon. That’s what you’re doing… like a bunch of lemmings running for the cliff.


I’ll leave you with this bit of a rant from Debbie at Sane Progressive explaining why people like us are simply done with the total clusterfuck of this Idiocracy.




Best explanation so far.



We can do better than two psychopaths for presidential candidates
