A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Public Service Announcement


14 April 2014

Visible is moving home April 15th 2014.

At the same time, all his blogs - including this one, will be relocating, too; this means that soon this page will disappear - as will all other pages on Vis' sites. The move (the blogs' move that is, not lord Visible's) is expected to take somewhere between 3 and 8 Earth days so should complete some time between 18 and 25 April 2014.

The blogs will remain accessible however, on their old blogspot.com URLS, and here is where you are going to find them - so please bookmark the following links!


Reflections in a Petri Dish
Smoking Mirrors
Visible Origami


Please also be aware that although all the existing blogs' content will remain accessible, many image links and other bits and pieces may look a bit tatty for the duration of the move (not that anyone visits Vis blogs for pretty pictures anyway, but it's just polite to let you know)



Thank you for bearing with us during the move!

The Rise of the Stupids and the Fall of Rome

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

I saw where someone referred to Kayne West as a genius. This sort of half excused him for his public embarrassment of saying that certain musical judges had picked the wrong bimbo to be awarded one of those Cracker Jack prizes in the tits and ass ensemble of modern culture. We know all about ‘cultures’ here at the Petri Dish. We’ve got thousands of glass slides with things growing on them and as much dry ice as you’ll find at any of the major concerts.

I tried to listen to some Kayne West so that I could catch some of his genius but I was compelled to turn it off before the genius part appeared. I did search engine his lyrics and here’s an example of what I got at random. I scanned a few more but I’ll spare you that. You can find more on your own time.

I can’t go to the S&MSM without coming across the name, ‘Gosselin’. It’s there every day. Every day, there are details about this train wreck that includes a brace of sextuplets. They were, or are or maybe they will be again, the biggest reality show going. Someone is making this an ‘in your face’ situation. Someone is behind the scenes pumping this excrescence into the collective mind’s water supply.

Someone made Kayne West famous and I suspect it was not his genius. Someone is searching the landscape high and low for new possibilities, day after day for another bad light to present you, the human race, in. I haven’t seen any network TV in many years. I watched the 2000 election on CNN... then there was another long dry spell on the other side. I don’t think I have to watch any of this to get the sense of what it is. Evidence of the impact of culture on the conditions of life is evident everywhere. There is cause, motivation and intent.

A decade or so ago, Disney hooked up with Tavistock and MKUltra on a little genetic experiment. They’d seen what happened with The Spice Girls and they wanted to expand on that concept, so the lab techs cooked up some polystyrene Mouseketeers and groomed them for the celebrity chute. Out came a Spears and a Timberlake and an Aguilera too. N’Sync and other permutations followed. There was an interesting contrast between white bread polysaccharides and gangsta-rapping, Hilfiger jacket wearing, expletive artistes.

In a time of war and plunder, stupidity is a rampaging nation’s greatest asset. If you don’t plan ahead you have to fly by the seat of your pants. This isn’t all that hard either given the location of the brain at the time.

It seems to me they stuck their toe in the water with that MTV show, Real World. It’s as real as you want it to be baby.

It is interesting... or it will be interesting to future archaeologists to explore the myriad similarities of the time. No doubt they will come across scientific papers that detailed the isolation of the Agent Stupid gene. Maybe it will turn out that it was a laboratory product that was added afterwards. It doesn’t matter if it was always a part of the human organism or if they created it. What happened ...happened.

In entirely different laboratories they were working on soft drink cultures and they found that aspartame and other chemicals most definitely made you fat. Fat and stupid are a formidable combination. On the social end there appeared the psych workers whose job was to legitimize every excess as another painful road to general acceptance. As the all embracing arms of the modern world were extended to clasp every emerging perversion to her perfumed breast, the fisters and pain freaks; the pedophiles and animal amorists, the pierced and the bound brought forth the new vision of the returning Jesus, morphing into Ashtaroth rising from The Pit.

In the middle of this unbridled excess there came the Speech Police who monitored every word and phrase for bias against the engines of decadence as rapture. On the one hand, freedom was license. On the other hand, objection was crime, as was accurate definition. Definition of anything was an illegal restriction, unless the definition coincided with the intent of those creating the conditions.

Madonna became a mystical cabbalist and if one looked closely they could see the flaming Hebrew letters dancing up her inner thighs to what is purported to be The Promised Land. Here the Roman armies had trekked a time or two before. It was the Lincoln Tunnel at rush hour, transmogrified into the gates of St. Peter.

In the times before the times that awakening crashed down upon the malls and media, hypocrisy became the most celebrated performance of the day. Powerful leaders could wax eloquently about peace, while murdering shepherds and farmers for the fuel that lay beneath their fields and gardens.

As the job opportunities were erased, the military opened their gates to the ranks and rows of canon fodder, which moved in slipstreams from the unemployment benefits lines to the enlistment lines. The survival and self interest centers of the human herd were amplified and intensified by invisible beams from cell phone towers. The effluvium from pharmaceutical factories was discharged into the water supplies; they had to stone the village in order to save it. Men grew breasts and women turned into hydras. We entered through the rear end into the Land of Myth and Legend.

They electrified the fantasies of children with tales of super heroes, bound in service to the very forces that created the mayhem in the first place. The state became the First Temple of Unholy Prostitutes that worked for the Mac-Daddy Pimp corporations.

It did not matter as one new absurdity followed the other. Nothing real remained to compare it against. The unreal had become real. The prophet had been sent packing and humanity itself was just another commodity on the endless rows of shelves that curved away into unimaginable distances. Somewhere, impossibly far ahead, was the checkout counter.

Somewhere, far, far back in an unremembered past, it had all begun. Was it the result of conditions imposed or was it written into the genetic code? Somehow the abusers always had a great deal more cachet than the saviors. Was it before or after Esau?

There appears to be no limit to how insane it might become. Whatever it is it will seem normal and woe betide the unaware who question its presence. The impressive and indomitable force of stupid, reigns supreme over the land. Stupid is genius. Stupid is God. Stupid is as stupid does and stupid does what it pleases. Stupid will kill itself before you day after day and then rise from the dead to lead the legions of stupid to the place where stupid rests.

They have not yet opened the gates of the chittering worlds that wait behind them, in the coliseums where you have been marched, at the behest of Stupid. There is still a semblance of order and the highways of hope are constructed by the hour and woven out of the words of the liars who have led you to this place. The true beauty of Stupid is that it will never occur to Stupid what it cost and what was lost. Perhaps Stupid is indestructible and is the heir to a kingdom that only he can see. Some certain and profound confidence motivates Stupid and only Stupid knows what that is.

Sometimes you just run out of things to say and... this is one of those times.

Hi Les, best.

One of the most telling ways in which stupid is enthroned is in the lack of "public" acknowlegement of it's opposite.

Thank you Les for pointing out an unfortunate truth.

What I truly cannot understand is when the truth is made available to the general public that it is literally shunned.

Are we not all naturally programmed to make sense out of problems we incur in life? Why are the truths of the problem actively shunned by the masses both on a collective and individual level?

MSM assists in collective ignorance but just how does one explain the amount of "stupid" also occuring at an individual level?

If you or I or any reader at this post politely informed John and/or Jane Q Citizen about the honest truths behind our present domestic and foreign problems - those truths would be shunned.

I do not understand where this "stupid" is comming from.

There is no logical or evolutionary advantage to it and unless you attribute the kind of reason ascribed to lemmings jumping over a cliff to their death, there is none.

How can anybody possibly add to this? Maybe mention lady gaga and her blood sacrifice dance or quote Forest Gump, "stupid is as stupid does."

All we need is a Nero to break out the fiddle and set the house on fire. I have looked for ways to sum up what modern art is all about from time to time. I can't get planet of the apes out of my mind. Charleston Heston I feel your pain.

Entertainers are like coked up hyenas. The Osmonds were sending a message with the song Disney after Dark but most people didn't get it. Underground Disney they say is strange after dark. Old Walt was a satanist and he was definitely wishing upon a star, the angel of darkness, Lucifer.

Yep like Dumya says the angel still rides in the whirlwind.

You might ask how stupid was enthroned over us all.

The smart people who own everything cannot trust smart people, so they hire and promote stupid people whose major 'virtue' is that they obey whatever orders to do evil things they are given. It appears to be better to have a stupid world owned by smart evil people than a smart world run by good people who would dispose of the evil people who own everything. It's just a matter of surviival for the evil rich. That's why the world looks the way it does now.

Aahhh stupid. How can you run out of things to say about stupid. Something so prevalent, so pervasive, so pugnacious knows no bounds in today's world.

It has been cultivated and manufactured, honed to near perfection and packaged for mass consumption. As such, in the hands of those who have done the cultivating and manufacturing, it has become as dangerous an entity as has ever been created.

Stupid has always been around, and may have been the original intent of the builders, or should I say alterers of the human being, but I don't think it has ever been organized, maximized and controlled to such a high degree.

It is fed and perpetuated on every public level, and at this point, those who are not afflicted by the condition are being vilified by the cultivators and painted as the enemy.

The signs are and have been there for quite some time. My dad saw them, which may explain his retreat within himself, and his reluctance to deal with the general public. It may also serve to explain his warming to me in his later years, as he realized that he had passed on to me, whatever it was that immunizes one against the condition. I miss my dad, but that's a lamentation for another day.

Yes, stupid. It is not only a massively consuming blight on planet earth, but is the single worst thing I have to deal with on a daily basis. It is that stone in my shoe that always seems to bring out the worst in me. People that are likable enough, but encased in an impenetrable armor of elective ignorance, that makes you want to choke their face off.

I always thought that learning some fundamental truths and becoming aware would be a wonderful thing, but to wake up and find yourself immersed in a boiling, bubbling, seething cauldron of stupidity is truly disheartening. To find that we have, as a species, gone from Mozart to screaming inarticulate rage is almost enough to make you welcome the next life.

Thankfully there are oasis's in the huge desert of stupid, like here, where we can come to vent, and enjoy the thoughts and feeling of others not afflicted with "the condition". Among other things, Les has provided a clinic for the maintenance of sanity, and a welcome rest stop.

Well, time to jump back into the cauldron and go to work. Yes, after being laid off for 10 months, I am once again employed, and although it puts me in the belly of the beast, it does pay the mortgage, and puts my wife's fears to rest. Til later, peace to all.

A common question is How does stupid reproduce? Scientists specializing in stupid studies agree stupid reproduces through auto-exponential cross-fertilization. In layman's language, this means one stupid has the ability to multiply into unlimited chains of stupid simply through its existence. Remarkable clinical trials are Anna Nicole Smith's Last Days on pedialyte sucked from a baby bottle, the drunken, jealous astronaut in diapers speeding towards a non-event, a world renowned filmmaker ignoring bailouts inhaled by Swiss bankers or the popular reality show starring puking Balloon Boy - each instance exceeding the next in reactive consequence. The key to stupid cellular crossing lies in the eyes and ears of the beholder. Reproductive linking occurs at warp speed within the receiving matrix. Starved receptors in the area of the human brain where serotonin uptake is inhibited depopulates entire stations of logic and reason. A vacancy results producing a chain of naturally occurring infinite stupid expansion overlaying existing chains of stupid, finally manifesting in a wandering explosive stupid informally known among professionals as the stupid spaghetti highway effect.

Stupidity stems from the well of reservation. When one sets out to quest(ion)- one must place nothing outside the reach of those questions. It's truly sad how many "truth seekers" can question their government or their religion but never both. Hoka hey...

I stand corrected I guess you can almost add to stupid forever. I predict this will be the longest thread in zippity doo dah history. My psychic powers are awakening! LOL

Obviously stupid is not moving fast enough but will be receiving some help. Aspartame and fluoride help to calcify the pineal gland. Gotcha!

Someone mentioned Mark Twain. I believe he said we all can't be heroes. Some of us need to sit on the curb and clap as they go by. Think entertainers.

Bob Hope was always happy to slide out those bimbos (think orgone accumulators). He loved him some mind control. Thanks for the memories I believe was his anthem!

This site stands out above all others in that you don't have to explain things to people or give them that all important LINK! They already know!

While visiting a young couple recently, I had the misfortune of catching an episode of some kind of intervention reality show. The intravenous speed freak was filmed close-up shooting up on three occasions during the course of the show.

Then I stopped by the auto parts store where a CNN road crew was dogging the bad gosslin on a screen above the associate's head.

Yikes.

Hi Les, best

Thinking about Stupid a bit and it came-
Stupid is linked to Lazy and also to Fear.
Looking at all the folk who don't Notice the slavish servility towards Israel, the ADL and Zionism espoused and set up as an ideal by the putrid MSM, I asked myself, what makes those who notice such servility, different?
Well, maybe we have enough energy expressing as curiosity to Look Things Up, to do research, to question.
And maybe we don't Fear being labeled, or criticized or being subjected to that which others might view as, say, uncomfortable?
There's a difference between being slow on the uptake and being what Orwell called a "goodthinker" (orthodox type person) engaging in
crimestop" (stopping oneself from pursuing a train of thought)

“I saw where someone referred to Kayne West as a genius… I tried to listen to some Kayne West so that I could catch some of his genius but I was compelled to turn it off before the genius part appeared… Someone made Kayne West famous and I suspect it was not his genius.”

Trust me, except for maybe one song, you’re not missing anything. Kanye is signed to Jay Z’s label called ‘Roc-a-fella Records’. You can Google ‘Roc-a-fella Records’ and see for yourself.

Think that’s a coincindence? Think Jay Z, arguably the least talented popular rapper in history, could get to be worth hundreds of millions of dollars without an official stamp of approval and a serious push from the people who call the shots?

The race who invented rock ‘n roll and brought you all of those timeless artists and classics from the Motown era haven’t forgotten how to make great music. They’re still doing it today but the powers-that-be are still fully invested in their divide and conquer strategy which includes showing and promoting the worst of the black community.

Kanye West, Jay Z, Lil Wayne and most of the other mainstream rappers & hip hop artists are talentless hacks compared to the underground stuff that you rarely hear on the radio.

Anyone who thinks that all rap and hip hop sucks should listen to Guns Are Drawn by The Roots. Both the beat and the words are great.

When was the last time that your favorite artist had the balls to write about the patriot act?:

Yeah it would be cool it could be too
Stop Running round in circles off of what we fuel
Living a lie eventually believing it's true
A lot of people here for us one could be you
It's outrageous and they just ain't nothing
But save us an ocean of brown fists in various flavors
A favor for a favor man, this is the majors
Tell me what you would do with no phone or pagers
No Kinko's, no Fed Ex and no ATM's
What you gone do when the police state begin
Well it already began but I guess it depends on what's really going on
what's happening, huh
Military target practicing
They finna write another patriot act again
The days is short the nights is long
The fight goes on
The pistol and the pipes are drawn…

Hi Les,

I find your blogs stimulating and like to ponder your meanings...I agree with some and find fear mongering in others. In balance I enjoy your writings.

An aside...if posting about stupidity, check your spelling. You blew it on Kanye West. I wondered who Kayne West was until it dawned on me who you were writing about. BTW...I do enjoy much of Kanye West's music. It's just a matter of personal taste and not a global judgment call.

Thanks,

Your appreciation for Kayne West says it all more clearly than anything else, even the obvious lie that you didn't know who I was talking about.

I'm glad you live in a world where the things I mention aren't happening Give it time.

Stupid has nothing to do with occasional spelling mistakes, especially in the case of names. However I won't be correcting this one because I want my respect for the man to be noted.
