Shiva is not welcome at weddings

McJ's picture

This is the latest post from Les Visible. It was so good I decided to post the whole thing here. I think Les Visible is one of those very few bloggers ( like our WP smiling )who is sincerely after the truth and not afraid to tell it like he sees it. I also really like his style. If you haven't read him, I recommend you check out some of his posts at Smoking Mirrors. This post is about truth, and who's telling it, and who's not and why it's important. Truth telling is something we don't see very often and something we never see from our politicians.

He notes that the Hindu God Shiva is often not invited to weddings because he's considered bad luck. Turns out that's because he is the Destroyer (of things that are not real).
It's a good thing for Shiva he is not invited to them Afghani weddings.

The Obama Drama, Osama and Al Qaeda Marching Band.

I want to give Obama a chance. I really do but then he put that Mossad Capo with short man’s disease in charge of who sees Obama and what Obama hears …and now comes another curious thing which actually should be put in the “None of Obama’s Business File” and I’m starting to think that Ozzy Osborne may be singing “Chosen One.” to the tune of “Fortunate Son.” at the inaugural ball.

Look, the truth is that Lieberman is a neo-con who puts Israel first before the interests of the United States. That is a given. He should be stripped of his committee chairmanships at the very least because he is a traitor to the party he is supposed to serve. I don’t want to hear about how he is now an Independent. He promised certain things and then didn’t do them. He’s a weasel. If he isn’t punished for what he’s done then it’s just one more example of who controls America and one more example of why America is going down the tubes. It’s none of Obama’s business what Congress does in its internal workings. I seem to remember that that was why they separated the branches of government and we’ve seen what has happened over the last eight years when those lines were muddied to the point of no longer being visible at all.

From what I can see so far… it’s business as usual. Everything that the founders argued and warned about has come to pass and you don’t need a map to see where that road leads.

Now we’re getting those boogeyman alerts again. Not a day goes by that someone doesn’t make some comment about activity from Osama or Al Qaeda. It seems that no matter how many times it gets said or how many ways it gets said, that there is no Al Qaeda, we’re still hearing about Al Qaeda. People in the know; know who Al Qaeda really is. Al Qaeda is a complete fabrication and the CIA admits it.

Then there is Osama Bin Laden. Here is a fascinating take on Bin Laden and Al Qaeda. Once again you see the same players and the same scenarios. Bin Laden is dead. There’s no Bin Laden and there is no Al Qaeda and, people… you are being played. You seem to want to be played.

I’ll tell you this about President Obama. If he doesn’t call for a new and thorough investigation into 9/11 then he’s a puppet on a string. Do yourself a favor and read these links. Go to the search engine of your choice and insert the relevant words and look at the sheer weight of argument and evidence. For 9/11 you can start here. I’ve given you plenty to read and there is more than you can ever absorb out there. Yes, some of it is wack and some of it is intentional disinfo masquerading as truther-speak but around six million tons of it is from legitimate sources who, more often than not, come to the same conclusions when they’re not too chickenshit to stand for or reveal the truth.

Now there are a lot of so-called liberal sites out there like Huffington Post and Daily Kos and there are a lot of so called, courageous deep thinkers and journalists who are disinfo tools like Noam Chomsky and Greg Palast who damn well know what the truth is and slither all around it like horny centipedes and who do tell the truth about a lot of other things so as to make you think they’re telling the truth about everything… which they are not. These sites and personas are just another part of the scam that utilizes confusion and misdirection as instruments of control.

There are some really fine bloggers out there and some of them are more gifted and articulate than anyone writing in the Main Stream Media; more in possession of the facts and much more interesting to read than the ranks of paid whores who write drivel with all the romantic passion and capacity of an old drunk on a park bench trying to chat up an invisible bag lady. You don’t see these bloggers anywhere near the high traffic zones. You see and hear people telling the truth about as often as you see a corporation play by the rules. This seems to de-legitimize the truth as if its lack of presence and popularity were the result of the truth being undesirable or lacking enough interest to entertain the common mind.

The truth doesn’t have pricey press agents or deep pocket sponsors. The truth doesn’t have conventions and corporate retreats. The truth doesn’t have a babe on each arm and a limousine at the curb, therefore the truth isn’t successful and heeled and so there must be something wrong with the truth because it doesn’t seem to have many powerful friends and hasn’t been on Larry King or Leno lately.

In the Hindu tradition, Lord Shiva represents the truth. Very often Shiva is not invited to weddings and celebrations because he’s considered bad luck. Shiva is also known as The Destroyer (of what is not real). The truth is death on illusion and because people prefer illusion to the truth, the truth is not welcome. Well, sooner or later the truth shows up whether it is welcome or not and that’s no fun at all. It’s much better to keep the truth close and to run after the truth and constantly alter your course to follow the truth than to tell yourself the good times are never going to end.

I realize that saying things like this makes people’s eyes cross or gives them an itch in the back or one in the crotch while they’re standing in line at the supermarket checkout. I realize that when you mention the truth, fundie antennas go up and you get a lot of people yelling that Jesus, or Mohamed or Ron Hubbard is the truth. I realize when you talk about the truth the first thing people do is to seek to accommodate the truth to their own self-interest. I realize this and it could well seem that the truth is a sucker’s game and a waste of time and a magnet for bad vibrations. I guess some of us are just made different. I would feel so uneasy buying into a lie that I wouldn’t be able to eat or sleep.

From my point of view, you might as well kill yourself now if the truth is an inconvenience because you have already killed everything that made you valuable and life meaningful when you turned your back on what was real in the service of your ambitions and your appetites. The world of material excess is just the place for you but I will tell you this. It’s a cruel world. It is a very cruel world and there is no hiding place. No matter where you go and no matter what you do and no matter how alone you think you are or how little evidence of your actions and presence may remain, the truth is, you were always there. You witnessed it even if no one else did.

What goes around comes around. What you do and what you are comes back on you and defines you. It’s some mysterious law of Nature or something. You may not understand how and why electricity works but you can see that it does. Everyone’s face becomes a road map for where they’ve been and what they’ve done. For some reason, people believe that if they don’t cut and hack their way through the jungle of each other that they won’t survive or that they will miss out on the good things in life. It never occurs to them that when they behave like a beast they become a beast and are in no position to enjoy the good things in life or even to know what they are.

Bin Laden is DEAD! There IS NO Al Qaeda as you understand it. There is no mysterious Spectre organization of Arab terrorists with a cutting edge communications network with centers in every city in the world. There is no organization like that. The organizations that are like that should be self-evident. Think about who has the means and the motive. Think about who benefits. Open your eyes or continue to victimize yourself with your refusal to see what is right in front of you. As Sherlock said, “When you have eliminated the impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.”


good post

thanks for posting it here Wink

Well it felt kinda appropriate - wish I could write like that. smiling

There seems to be some mysterious reason why musicians make really good bloggers.
It's something I always wonder about. puzzled

"These sites and personas are just another part of the scam that utilizes confusion and misdirection as instruments of control."

Part of the scam ? I've read what Chomsky said on the conspiracy and it's bullshit. Am I gonna say he is part of a scam ? No. Some people just aren't able to believe. They can't believe it could happen. It's too crazy for them. Chomsky can't, obviously, because his arguments are weak and don't hold water. But the point is, his criticism is not necessarily part of a freaking scam.

This explanation seems a lot more natural than Chomsky, the guy who did Manufacturing Consent, trying to control us. Now that would be the apex of irony.

I am not sure what exactly Les Visible means by 'scam' but I don't buy that Chomsky just can't bring himself to believe 911 could have been perpetrated by the government. That it's too crazy a theory for him. What's crazy to me is Chomsky not believing it. How can you be as smart as he is and come up with the conclusion that the 'official story' is true and just evidence of some kind of blowback. He even says it doesn't matter if it is true. It's the worse kind on disinformation IMO because of the weight and authority his words carry. Whether he is part of a 'scam' that supports the official story or whether he is a 'chickenshit' that is afraid to reveal the truth; it doesn't really make any differenc, it's the same result.

Chomsky has ALWAYS been part of the scam, in my opinion.

I've been sniped at a few times elsewhere for saying this, but I don't really care. I've thought this for a long time and I am not in the mood for mincing words, so:

How in the hell could the country's most dissident dissident be comfortable at MIT? That should be your number one red flag right there.

His books are incredibly shallow, and yet they're praised as works of genius -- by whom? By people who don't want you to know anything!

His disregard for the hard facts, the nuts and bolts of what was done and who did it, is enormous. He doesn't think it matters who did 9/11. He doesn't think it matters who killed JFK. As far as Chomsky is concerned, everything in "institutional" and nobody is to blame for any of the outrageous criminal acts that these monsters perpetrate as a matter of policy.

They're his monsters. He's their protector. He's the King of the Gatekeepers.

I think it's kind of funny to watch guys like Alex Cockburn and Greg Palast jockey for his job. Who will be the next King of the Gatekeepers? Stay tuned!

"How can you be as smart as

"How can you be as smart as he is and come up with the conclusion that the 'official story' is true and just evidence of some kind of blowback."

You can be the smartest guy in the world and still refuse to believe in certain things. In fact, the smarter you are, the better you are at creating arguments to justify your disbelief. Intellect is double-edged. The way to the truth is through patience, courage, and honesty; not through a great intelligence, which only determines the time required to reach a certain conclusion.

If you don't even try, no matter how smart, fast, and efficient you are, you are bound to fail. Chomsky doesn't want to acknowledge the possibility that the official story might be wrong. He starts from the premise that it is right, in the same way the guys from NIST built their model to exclude certain possibilities.

don't assume he's honest

there's no evidence to support such a conclusion

Chomsky knows

"Chomsky doesn't want to acknowledge the possibility that the official story might be wrong."

Below is part 1 of the interview that was posted in the comment above (which was part 2).
Chomsky spends the better part of 3 minutes explaining how governments all over the world are exploiting 911 to control their populations and how it gives oligarchies an excuse to commit even more atrocities. How it was all so easily predictable, how he had predicated it, and how they do this all the time. Then immediately after, when he is asked if he thinks the Bush Government could have orchestrated 911 he says it's crazy to think they would have done that (followed by the standard list of talking points for debunking 911.) I can only speculate as to his motives but I think he's a lying. If he is swimming in 'de-river of de-Nile' he's in serious danger of drowning.

I agree that smart guys can be really good at justifying their disbelief I don't think this is the case where Chomsky is concerned.
Just my opinion, however. smiling

WP's comment at 13:05 says

WP's comment at 13:05 says everything I'd say about Chomsky, and I'd find Howard Zinn to be pretty close to Chomsky when it comes time to identify sycophants for a corrupt system. Zinn showed his colors recently with his fawning praise of Obama and his post-election cries for national unity to support Obama. This says Zinn thinks Obama's funding sources, strategy, voting record and advisory team members are acceptable and worthy of everyone's support.

How can someone think that, and pretend to be critical of Imperialism? How can someone think that, and pretend to be for levelling the playing field, for restoring civil rights, for reversing the disparities in America?

Thank you for that. I know

Thank you for that. I know this writer and he provides some of the best writing I've seen in ages. I went to the site after and he's written some kind of dispatch from Armageddon. Brilliant! As for Chomsky, Palast and a major crowd of rogered ho's of both sexes, they know, they fukin well know.

Yo Chomsky

It has also bothered me for years that Chomsky is apparently comfortably ensconced at MIT. Added to that, how could a man who has described the US Govt as the largest terrorist organisation on Earth not accept that this same organisation could be involved (at least) in the 911 thang?
