    US can’t even keep crime anything but orthodox
    and can’t even do that
    so yeah, it’s a choose your pill
    when you’re ripe

    so you’re one of Azrael’s eyes on some individual issue
    snake-in-the-grass semantic slithering like indivisible sovereign hypocrisy
    looking for the next syntax
    in the terminator tissue

    don’t even know what money is
    let alone what illegal money is
    what genus is

    you can’t put an objection on a shadow
    so they made up psionic capital
    and declassified psychosis

    study people playing board games
    and listen (god forbid pay attention) to all the bullshit, by any other name
    you don’t know.
    so who cares?

        i sure did :)
        i never really know if people evar katch these things
        so i appreciate when it turns out they do 😉

        if i recall correctly, Travincal was corrupted by the presence of Mephisto, Lord of Hatred, who’s aetheric spirit could not be contained so well as his physical form

          That’s fitting

    Syria is primarily the newest news story distraction
    it’s machinations are all commercial and only remotely political
    from the weapons used to the commercial news programs coverage
    Syria is a mutibillion dollar multimedia op
    The Mediums are the Massage

    I’ve been hearing that all the unrest in Syria is the result of US covert interventions. That there would be no “rebels” if the US had not created them.
    Possibly anther problem, reaction, solution scenario.

    Apparently Syria’s presence on the internet has all but disappeared recently.

    i was hesitant at first to watch the show, but actually i find almost every episode enthralling- in fact i put the mp4 tracks (of past shows) on my phone to listen to it on the subway- where she is in good company with several pacifica radio shows (notable Dem. Now) and coast to coast AM. just wanted to give abby props and a shout out.
