Let it Go!

If You Truly Love Something
Hold on to it as Tight as you Can
Until you Smother it to Death
And then Never Let Go!

The Serpent Strikes by Brian Thomas Armstrong



The Serpent Strikes
by Brian Thomas Armstrong

A snake uncoils within my mind
It strikes my reason as it unwinds
It slithers deep inside my pain
And nests itself deeper inside my brain
When sunshine rises amidst my rain
It wiggles out from under my rocks of
stepping stones, further into my psyche
Waiting there silently in order to bite
all those who are near and dear to me
Leaving more piles of bleached dry bones
hidden somewhere in my skull

Social Hysteria: American Political Weapon of Choice!


It is the Governmental Fear Mongering and Manipulation of facts, in order to Maximize Social Hysteria as a Political Weapon of Controlling the Masses for Corporate, Political, and Federal Gain, that is what's Directly RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS! In California, and also across the entire Nation.


Don't be a Political Party Robot!

 Don't be a Political Party Robot!  - Just because like me, you are a life-long Democrat - That is the job for all the Uptight Right - Wing Republicans of this country, not true Democrats. It is Time for Blindly loyal Obamaists to regain their sight back and realize - TWO WRONG PRESIDENTS IN A ROW - DO NOT MAKE THE RIGHT PRESIDENT FOR OUR GREAT NATION.

Broken Soldier

When they finally broke me - they screwed up and broke me beyond their usefulness, and to some extent beyond my own for decades - I could not justify killing for them any longer - and I would no longer allow them to further kill my original self anymore, no matter how hard they tried - and believe me they tried hard!


American Economy 101


Vibrant economy with 10,000,000 new jobs from the private sector my ass! - 10,000,000 new low paying jobs for 18 year old's from the Rich private sector - Makes politician's bullsh*t look good on paper though!

Illegal Immigrants: Amnesty VS. Opportunity


Illegal Immigrants: Amnesty VS. Opportunity

Illegal Immigrants in America do not need amnesty – They need opportunity! Most are here in this country simply to earn money so they can send it back to their families in third world countries, in order to return home to a better life. Like most poverty stricken American citizens here at home, they resort to breaking the law out of desperation and self-survival. This capitalistic endless merry-go-round of a society based on the rich haves, feeding off the have-nots, threatens our cities streets, our population’s safety, divides our communities, and ensures a future generation of endless have-nots for the greedy to perpetually prey on. Immigration reform is a cheap political parlor trick for both Republicans and Democrats to divide and distract the population from reforming our political system, and bettering our nation’s legal citizen’s general population’s lives with real opportunity to succeed in true – Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness - Poverty is simply a lack of opportunity and governmental integrity!

Never-ending Fools with Guns = Never-ending American Gun Tragedies


Never-ending Fools with Guns = Never-ending American Gun Tragedies 
by Brian Thomas Armstrong


“In a study of 23 high-income nations, 87 percent of children under age 15 killed by guns 
lived in the United States. 
       The same study found that the gun homicide rate for teens and young adults
in the U.S. ages 15-24 was 42.7%  higher than in the other high-income countries combined.” (http://www.futureswithoutviolence.org/)

Last year in the beginning of 2013, a 3 year old boy in South Carolina got a hold of a small pink hand-gun that looked like a toy, and then accidentally and fatally shot himself in the head. The boy’s seven year old sister was also in the room with the child, luckily avoiding being shot herself while her and her brother played with the small hand gun in a bedroom unattended. The children’s grandparents where both in another room when the boy shot himself; his parents were not home. 

This year after several more well publicized mass-shootings and heated political debates on the subject of gun control, and mostly stalemate over the right to bare arms, there has not been much national progress in reducing or solving gun violence, let alone addressing public carelessness when it comes to active gun control and gun ownership.


The latest shooting range accident involving a nine year old girl at the Burgers and Bullets Range in White Hills, Arizona, highlights the reckless stupidity factor of gun nuts, when the young girl fatally shot her shooting range instructor in the head with an Uzi sub-machine-gun while being taught to fire the weapon on - FULL AUTO!


The tragedy at Burgers and Bullets was not a first national travesty of stupidity involving a young child at a firing range being given Uzi sub-machine-gun lessons. In 2008, an 8-year-old Christopher Bizilj also tragically and accidentally killed himself while shooting an Uzi at a Massachusetts gun show

A 2013 USA Today article stated that according to the New England Journal of Medicine – “Nationally, guns still kill twice as many children and young people than cancer, five times as many than heart disease, and 15 times more than infection.” That statistic is a national embarrassment to a modern American society that arrogantly prides itself at being worldly perceived as - the Greatest Nation on Earth. Our actions unfortunately tend to speak louder than our self-indulgent words when it comes to overseas perceptions of our true societal and governmental intellectual greatness.
Fools with guns cause just as much pain and tragedy as being mentally ill with a handgun. Universal background checks help, but certainly they are not a cure for a lack of common sense, sanity, or human decency in the firearm owner. What we need are good reasons for someone to have a hand gun permit in order to get a hand gun, funded safety courses that do not involve machine gun lessons, and of course thorough background checks - Then society as a whole can truly say that we are all using common sense, rationality, and human decency ourselves when it comes to real gun control and public safety in America - For All Americans.

Gun Violence & Children - http://www.futureswithoutviolence.org/
Ø  2694 children and teens died from guns in 2010. That’s a roughly equivalent to a Newtown
massacre every three days.
Ø  Between 1979 and 2010, more children and teens died from guns
(119,079) than U.S. soldiers in the wars in Vietnam, Korea, Iraq and Afghanistan combined.
Ø  In a study of 23 high-income nations, 87 percent of children under age 15 killed by guns lived in
the United States. The same study found that the gun homicide rate for teens and young adults
in the U.S. ages 15-24 was 42.7 higher than in the other high-income countries combined.
Ø  More than half of youth who commit suicide with a gun do so with one obtained from their
home—and more often than not, the gun belonged to a parent.
Ø  In 2009, more 15-19 year-olds died from gun violence than any other cause except motor
vehicles.

Ø  In 2010, 82 U.S. children under the age of five died from guns.

Obama offers us hopelessness again instead of hope & we still take it!

You know things are bad in this country when a life long Social-Democrat like myself, starts sharing and agreeing with Republican Up-Tight-Whitey Right-Wing Propaganda.      THANKS ALLOT OBAMA!

Vote for Stupid!


Start voting with your heart and conscious, rather than what material things you will gain if that person is elected - then greedy and stupid won't elect greedy and stupid. 

Public Servants or Public Tyrants?


This is how your "public servants" protect and serve themselves - Police and Politicians are only interested in what you can do for them! Otherwise you are just a cash cow to politicians, or cattle for the slaughter to an increasingly militant American police force.


- news.yahoo.com - 

A St. Louis County police officer, who was seen pushing a CNN anchor during protests in Ferguson, Mo., this week, was suspended from duty after a controversial video surfaced, in which he fashions himself as a merciless killer.

“I personally believe in Jesus Christ as my lord and savior, but I’m also a killer,” said officer Dan Page, a 35-year veteran, in the video. “I’ve killed a lot. And if I need to, I’ll kill a whole bunch more. If you don’t want to get killed, don’t show up in front of me. I have no problems with it. God did not raise me to be a coward." Page added, “I’m into diversity — I kill everybody. I don’t care."

Obama’s Endless Boehner Moves


"Every time the president unilaterally re-writes the law and ignores the Constitution, he does damage to the institutions of our democratic government, and undermines further the bonds of trust between that government and the American people." (John Boehner) - Not to mention that Obama also makes Democrats look just as crooked as Republicans every time he targets rivals and critics by illegally using government agencies as his Hench men - Uses his extensive education in constitutional law to circumvent the constitution, rather than uphold it - Chastises Congress for not working with him, then intentionally breaks the law by bi-passing Congress in order to exchange a war deserter for five Taliban terrorists so they can plot more death and destruction on Americans and others World-Wide. Obama's worst crime could be perceived as making Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, and the rest of his Up-Tight-White-Right coalition - Actually look like they were right all along about the Obama Administration, and even more damaging; the "New" Democratic parties moral political ethics in general!

Obama Israel


Social Security Disability Insurance is predicted to run out in 2016 - Do you see politicians giving a damn - They are to busy still playing "The Cold World War" to give one rat's ass about their own people here at home. Obama is not your new hope - He is just another Corporate Puppet Dope!


"Part of the U.S. offensive in Iraq involves targeting millions of dollars of its own equipment given to the Iraqi Army during the U.S. occupation and later seized by Islamic State militants after they seized two Iraqi military bases this summer. According to Reuters, some of the hardware the U.S. is attempting to destroy includes M1 Abrams tanks (about $6 million per), Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicles (about $1 million per), and 53 M198 Howitzer cannons ($527,337 per).
Reuters estimates that the U.S. spends somewhere between $84,000 and $104,000 to destroy between $1 and $12 million of its own military hardware per airstrike." By David Ludwig

The Nut Factory


The Nut Factory
by Brian Thomas Armstrong

    When I first arrived here I would sleep in the back of a truck-bed in my living room. I would wake up in the morning with nothing much to do, wondering, searching in my mind as to what I should partake in during my stay here - and then I found the factory, the old man told his visitor, with an enthused gleam in his eye.
    I started out by pulling taffy, and then tediously but joyously stretching it back and forth along the long walls of the factory’s warehouse. I then started making furniture so that I would have something to sit in while chewing on the fruits of my laborious creations. Then I started making shoes for the long walks I endured, and then grew to love, along the trail that I take to the market located in the middle of our town square in order to sell all the goods that I make, the old man said, brimming with pride.
    My success grew remarkably fast, so I then hired some of the locals that no one else would seem to hire, although they were perfectly fine men and women in my view,  and together we built the small industrial empire that you see here today, all based on candy and shoes that took the local business community around here by great surprise, creating many friends, and also a few formidable enemies if you know what I mean , he winked at his visitor looking very satisfied with himself – I am very very busy now as you can see, and I can hardly remember that dark place the state of my mind seemed to be trapped in before, when I was actively drinking that is. “I know how you feel pop, I’ve also been in that same dark place many times before,” the old man’s son told him in a somewhat solemn response. I’m very busy now as you can see, and I really must go, his father repeated once more. His son told him he wanted to come visit him again soon, and also bring some books back for him to read next time. Oh yes please do - said his father - but never mind the books, there is much for you to learn and do here, and I am in desperate need of help with my factory, as you can see I am very busy here. “I would like that allot pop,” replied his son, a sad smile was on his face as a tear started to well up in his eye. There was also a frazzled looking, somewhat confused and distracted smile on his father’s face as well, as father and son faced each other from across the long wooden table. Very fine then, said the old man, it was assuredly nice to see you again, and as I said before, I am very very busy here, and the factory needs me as you can see.  “OK pop, it was great to see you too,” he reached over and held/shook his dads hand for a brief minute, and then he stood up and left the room, forcing himself not to look back at his father as he walked away.
    The son looked back at the tall ominous brick building that housed/incarcerated his father as he often did, while walking slowly away from it towards his automobile in the always half empty dirt parking lot in front of the asylum. He was once again trying desperately to hold back the flood of welling tears that threatened to pour down the front of his youthful face. This was a sad routine he knew very well, and expected every time he left one of his few and fewer in-between visits with his disturbed father. He made another silent vow to himself that he would visit the institution more often – after all, his father certainly needed him now, more than he ever had before.

The Southern Child Exodus Problem


The Southern Child Exodus Problem
by Brian Thomas Armstrong

When President George W. Bush signed the law into effect in 2008 that guaranteed immigration hearings for most unaccompanied minors caught trying to cross the Mexican and Canadian border, there was little to no objection nor protest from society, nor the two main political factions of Republicans or Democrats that control American society, and certainly not from the religious right to which Bush was pandering to at the time, using child sex trafficking as the main justification for the enactment of the law.

The present day immigration problems and controversies brewing over these unaccompanied immigrant children, are that the law only covers children who are foreign citizens from our neighboring borders/countries of Mexico and Canada with assured lengthy and expensive due process rights once apprehended by U.S. authorities, not South American and other countries unaccompanied children. The combination of that law and Obama’s past perceived soft spot,  especially down south for immigration reform and easier pathways to citizenship have opened up the flood gates of illegal immigration crossings on our border with Mexico, especially children to overwhelming proportions. The perpetrating South American countries, their people, and their governments certainly haven’t changed in the past decade, the governments and therefore the main offending countries of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador are just as corrupt, violent, and miserable to live in if you’re not a wealthy tourist as they have always been. What has changed is that Children “refugee’s” from their nations chaos has become the highlight news story in America. A family with children, single moms with kids, and of course the lone migrant worker were easily lumped in together for deportation with-out pulling to many heart strings in the media, or of course the main staple of American social hysteria, - Republican, Democrat, and somewhere in-between factions that perpetually use crisis, any form of crisis, to their vindictive and selfish political advantages.

The cost of housing and feeding these children is not “really” the issue here. After spending billions upon billions on senseless wars that go nowhere, and then sit back and watch the places we invaded after we pull out revert back to even more chaos than when we first interjected ourselves on these countries lives, when we of course finally get tired of the enormous cost, or all of a sudden once again realize/remember the futility/folly of war - we as a people can hardly bitch about how much it will cost us to feed hungry children. This is truly a political crisis, a humanitarian crisis, a local government spending crisis along the southern border, but hardly a national crisis for American society. What this crisis is to the Average American, and should be, is a crisis of conscience. 

What should be done about this new immigration “crisis” you say – we should simply follow our laws as they stand now, follow our hearts and American sense of decency and humanity, thus redeeming ourselves in the eyes of the World, God, and most importantly Ourselves.

A Social Esteem Problem


A Social Esteem Problem
by Brian Thomas Armstrong


A glance in the mirror
A shiver of shame
Every day the mornings the same
A dread of going into school
Knowing the rule
Beauty is skin deep
And that is as far as people see
Slink down the hall
They kick my books
Go to my locker
They snicker to each other about my looks
They never care about what it’s like to be me
They don’t “feel” or “hear” me
They only see

Obama's flip/flop talk on child immigration and deportation


I know I do not seem like much of a “realist” when I say this but, when un-accompanied children escape from their F’ed up, crooked, dangerous, and incredibly violent country, especially towards vulnerable women and children; I quit waving the flag, wagging my tongue about how they are going to over-run and overwhelm us, and then I take them in, feed them, house them, and educate them, then you really have lived up to America’s lofty judgmental, self-righteous ideals, and showed the children and people of the world you can put your ideals, ethics, moral authority, and yes lots of excess money where your mouth is - instead of flip/ flop political talk that helps no one (World-Wide), including ourselves.  (BTA)
