In the meantime my next entry in my manifesto is on the way up and I should have another entry right after that for you. I hope you get something out of it.
I'd like to thank my new 'Listeners' for joining me here -I'll be checking out your blogs and stuff and I will be sure to follow along with you too.
JBrown! Looks like you got some great info - Nice to see it and I will be looking for more. :)
Zcoda! Looks like you like to listen - I would love to see some of your thoughts and concepts. :)
To the DotConnector (My first listener) Thanks for the comment from long ago! I seemed to have missed it before. There is no way I can match your content - but I will keep my thing going to add to the voices of the many.
Thanks for the comment A. Peasant

Looking at all the information that is streaming into your brain right now - when you pick it apart and try to find out what the hell is going on, what it is that is happening to you. What bits will you find to be important? Can anything out there, in this - in their reality, be important? Can any of the images or sounds that hit your psyche everyday day, day in and day out, be all that important? If so, which ones? If not, then what is?
You are here, Now, in their reality. Or so they would have you believe - and with their reality comes caveats that you believe to be the rules of nature and the laws of man - the right things to do. For the most part you try to cope with those concepts. But what is their reality? Is it just here? Is it 'what it is'? And is that all there is? What of it? You work with their concepts, you try to get along and move forward in their reality, and you wonder; where you should you go from here? Where you will go from here? (Continued on c0mpsych.com)

While digressing from their reality of the election I managed to continue my dissertation of Living in multiple realities (the one you see and the one you feel) Here is chapter two:
c0mpsych(with a Zero)
About Managing Everyday Life The Grind - The Rat Race - Muddling through living from paycheck to paycheck. The Kids - The Car - The Job - The Boss - That aggravating coworker! All the situations that you have to cope with just to come home to try and decompress. With what? The latest episode of Survivor or The Real Life or Teen Idol - American idol - Football - Baseball - the NEWS!? And this year (I guess you can tell when I killed my T.V.) there is the ever over-present political race. Jammed right in your face! When you try to fall asleep at night you fall asleep thinking there must be something better, a better way. A way to get all those crappy things out of your life. Continued

Check out the Silence...
Jagged Little Pill (1995)
All I Really Want
Do I stress you out
My sweater is on backwards and inside out
and you say how appropriate
I don't want to dissect everything today
I don't mean to pick you apart you see
But I can't help it
There I go jumping before the gunshot has gone off
Slap me with a splintered ruler
And it would knock me to the floor if I wasn't there already
If only I could hunt the hunter
And all I really want is some patience
A way to calm the angry voice
And all I really want is deliverance
Do I wear you out
You must wonder why I'm relentless and all strung out
I'm consumed by the chill of solitary
I'm like Estella
I like to reel it in and spit it out
I'm frustrated by your apathy
And I am frightened by the corrupted ways of this land
If only I could meet the Maker
And I'm fascinated by the spiritual man
I am humbled by his humble nature
What I wouldn't give to find a soul mate
Someone else to catch this drift
And what I wouldn't give to meet a kindred
Enough about me, let's talk about you for a minute
Enough about you, let's talk about life for a while
The conflicts, the craziness and the sound of pretenses
Falling all around... all around
Why are you so petrified of silence
Here can you handle this?
Did you think about your bills, your ex, your deadlines
Or when you think you're gonna die
Or did you long for the next distraction
And all I need now is intellectual intercourse
A soul to dig the hole much deeper
And I have no concept of time other than it is flying
If only I could kill the killer
All I really want is some peace man
A place to find a common ground
And all I really want is a wavelength
All I really want is some comfort
A way to get my hands untied
And all I really want is some justice

I, along with many others, am so tired of this election crap that I do not wish to pursue it any further. With limited choices that are not terribly different from each other, I made mine (early mail in balot) and now I am going to get on with what I am going to do to survive what we have to look forward to in the future.
Check out my Site @ www.c0mpsych.com and if your interested in my comments on Obama go to www.c0mpsych.com/obama.html
Hope & Cheers, See you an the other side.

This is one of the things I really want to do:
In the car, I would like to carry my paperwork (Papers Please)
in my copy of the U.S. Constitution.
Though I fear to do this because it has been determined that those who quote or carry this fast becoming subversive document are to be considered suspect of what ever the crime of the day is, i.e. terrorist, subversive agitator, non-patriot, etc. So in addition I would most likely be wise to carry with me (In my copy of the Constitution) my Children's birth certificates and court orders of custody, along with their Social Security cards and the non-official photo Id's I have for them - which are currently in my wallet at all times anyway - just in case. As I am Also suspect because I am a single male with children.
So I bow to the propaganda of fear, to my great chagrin. I carry my Papers and not my Constitution. In case of a traffic stop, warranted or otherwise, I bite my tongue. All in hope that I can spare myself and my children the trauma of being seen as one of the ones to watch - a suspect treated in accordance with my profile - Simply because I Love my Country (Well... what's left of it) but truly fear my Government (What it has become).
Preparedness = Paranoia
Concern = Suspicion
Today I pray for:
That little rant goes pretty well with a comment I submitted to
life's journey on blogspot today...
Just for good measure here are two very useful videos in regards to police contact:
I have been noticing that random checkpoints have been on the increase in Colorado so I dug up the - The Use of Sobriety Checkpoints for Impaired Driving Enforcement (State of Colorado Manual) - to get an over view of these practices.
The big issue I have had lately was about a year ago. I happend across a donations drive by the county fire departments, where they had several firefighters standing at stopping points in intersections soliciting donations. Not that getting drunk drivers off the road and asking for support of municipal services is not a good thing but, when I came up on these guys, in uniform, I felt obliged to roll down my window and give them money for fear that if I did not at least cooperate in speaking with them and letting them lean into my car. That I would be targeted down the road for a suspicious vehicle stop.
Just recently I clipped an article from my city's News letter (See: http://c0mpsych.com/documents/police_accountability.html)in regards to the services that my local police should be providing. In my town the police and their associates have been known to go on murderous escapades complete with cover-up attempts and evidence tampering. that along with a string of police impersonations, trust is low. So in an effort to smooth over the behaviour of his force and others the Chief wrote a letter at one point stating that one of their "Key Values"... is ..."Integrity. We will scrupulously adhere to the laws of the land, the ethics of our chosen profession and the moral code of a decent human being" You can always hope but, I keep that article in my wallet - Just in case...
Remember to exercise your rights! Or through slow erosion and obedience training we will surely loose them.
