A Summer Cauldron; The Gifts Donald Brings

trump

Heat indexes throughout the U.S. continue to rise. A sweltering summer to say the least. My dope smoking, whiskey drinking binge is more for pleasure than frustration this July; a seemingly endless supply of hard liquor drinking bouts with friends, one evening after another, people drawn from heat and inebriation to shed their clothes and dance together in their underwear. Included with my summer festivities I’ve been keeping an eye on the 2016 campaign hopefuls as the list thins a bit. This is the point where a lot of egos get in the way of presidential wanna-bes; too fearful to back out now because for one brief, shining moment they had the fever and actually thought they could win.

The rise in popularity of Donald Trump among Republicans and Tea Party members had me blind sided and I even spouted off in an earlier post about the absurdity of Trump being considered a viable candidate, yet here he is leading the way in numbers among conservatives in popularity. He lapped Jeb Bush and left that guy in the dust, so now Democrats are crossing their fingers, hoping the tycoon stays in for the long haul. If Trump falters in polls among Republicans he vows to take it on as an Independent (possibly), or, if his popularity continues to rise he may very well become the GOP choice.

The summer heat drives some to terrible lengths, brings out the true monsters inside them. The Time of the Season for the 2000 Teens is scarred with daily mass shootings, racial injustice rising in the air, people wanting to rid the old laws of marijuana (cannabis) and more….but we all need to try and enjoy the summer as I see it and here’s why. In spite of how ridiculous Donald Trump looks, we know from past experience that ‘ridiculous’ can sway elections. Look back at old YouTube video of Ross Perot. That cantakerous fuck put a spin on the election and took a huge chunk of voters with him. Same with Ralph Nader, another extreme piece of nature. Clandestine Republican election committees are sweating bullets about the numbers Trump pulls in thinking he may just pull in enough to make a Republican lose 2016, especially when weighed against the Democrat’s choice of Bernie Sanders. Sander’s voodoo has the GOP worried; the Good Old Boy network is getting a bit itchy wondering why the old ways are not working.

Donald Trump continues to display himself as a loudmouth cock of the walk and perhaps that’s what appeals to some. He treats campaign questions on foreign policy like a hostile takeover bid, pure tycoon bullshit, but he sounds confident. Confidence in front of the camera won Kenndey the election in the eyes of the people eons ago when Nixon sweat bullets on camera. This triumph of appearing confident (by Trump), even when caught in a bald faced lie on air is unprecedented by comparison to the other candidates. He’ll sit and deny claims and the Republican election committees are perplexed. They can see how the other guys appear as the old hat approach. These committees know no one wants to live under a Cruz presidency, Christie is falling fast and the lineup looks bleak after that folks. The Republicans got to put someone in there but they too have a secret weapon to thwart the Democrats; Denying Clinton her shot at it. It’s a delicate balance trying to ward off Clinton and Sanders but they know if given the choice between those two, they would rather take Hillary down and out of it. To see Hillary win the nomination for the Democratic vote would send some living in this hot, blistering cauldron of summer, over the fucking edge.

Cannabis laws all over America must and will change. The word’s out on pot and everyone is saying ‘yes, please’. I recently went to a Dave Matthews concert just outside Indianapolis, a speculative area some might think would crack down hard on dope smoking but apparently as long as there is no big hassle from the band, they unofficially try to let things go as unnoticed…or at least unconcerned. Everywhere you could see people vaping hash oil or smoking blunts. The concert was a great summer affair and everyone had a good time. Small towns on the outskirts of the Circle City harbor farm boys and girls hitting on THC and drinking PBR. Not speculation; I was out there hitting dope with them. Pot is becoming a crop in this country once again and things can’t be stopped.

So sit back and watch the political circus friends, Trump and Sanders appear in my eye to be the leaders at this point-in media interest if nothing else. It’s too fucking hot to get worked up about the foreplay of the election; enjoy your summer and come Fall, we can all dig into the last lag of this true, extreme ether known as the American Day of Voting.

Roboticism: The Looming Pleasure Toaster

robotica

There are changes
Lyin’ ahead in every road
And there are new thoughts
Ready and waiting to explode
When tomorrow is today
The bells may toll for some
But nothing can change the shape of things to come

Max Frost/Troopers

 As most of us with internet access will do, I stumbled down a rabbit hole of videos and audio interviews that started from a recent reporting from Japan. Japan plans to open a hotel to be run by robots. The video showed two front desk clerks and a mobile luggage, all of them full blown fucking robots. Naturally that story was connected to key word subject matter the internet pulled up for me, key words like ‘Japan and “robots” and if you’ve spent any time on the internet you’ll be pushed down that rabbit hole….into the madness.

 Next to the hotel video were related Japanese robot videos and one screamed a title at me, touting a giant Japanese stripper robot. I am all for keeping up to speed on the most recent developments with robotics and after witnessing the footage of that hulking fembot, I couldn’t stop. I trailed on to the website TrueCompanion.com where they promote a full sized female doll that weighs approximately 60 lbs, with lifelike eyes and hair. Nine hundred ninety five and some change will buy you RoxxxyPillow (or Rockey, the male counterpart). Some may not believe there is a pleasure robot industry out there but believe me, there are places continuing to perfect the functioning fuckbot. Advancements in robotics are climbing over barriers which prevented them from making more realistic dolls in previous years. Granted they still look like dolls but I give the manufacturers and developers credit; they’re getting better. They’ve added more realistic movement as well. There’s footage of Roxxxy simulating fellatio and anyone seeing it would have to admit that the scientists got that one down pretty good. Other beta pleasure dolls look more anime-like with engorged breasts and unnatural colored hair and skin. Audio response built into the machines will simulate intelligence with more and more variables in response. If cultivated just right they will eventually make the ultimate in pleasure droids that talk to you, screw you and feed your ego in a custom built arrangement suited to your personal wants…that should be interesting.

 There are cases shown online of a guy married to a doll. People in similar relationships with huge nonmoveable representations of humans that they consider their life partner. Our societies march on and develop new standards, new ideas. Relationships are broadening and the acceptable norms of yesteryear advance with our technology. We move closer toward a merger with technology-transhumanism on the march. I see the benefits and some downfalls in the cultural march into a Brave New World. Robots to fuck sounds like it could cure a lot of problems for people. Until we humans build enough artificial intelligence inside one of these creatures and they tell us to stop fucking them, we’ll probably continue to do it. Now if Jeff (apologies to anyone named Jeff-just a random name I pulled out there) wants to live with a robot, I’m totally down with that and wish Jeff and his Pleasure Toaster a happy life. An increase in roboticism is certain to take place as the developers of dolls like RoxxyPillow make them more and more realistic, more humanlike. The dark side to this whole scenario is the lack of limits it puts on a person’s behavior toward a robot. I can forsee hardcore action dolls for the most borderline-and across the borderline-sexual behavior and fetishes. Can this be considered abusive? Will pleasure robots eventually have rights? Will sex with a robot, no matter how twisted you want it to get, be considered consensual? These are questions I wait to see how they fall into place.

 Roboticism may help a lot of people tolerate their surroundings a bit better. They may also very well create a new tribe of inhabitants on the Big Blue Marble. A minority of people who choose to live their life out with a Pleasure Toaster-hell, I may even some day offend people by referring to them as Pleasure Toasters. Whatever happens, I do feel that robotic engineering and creating a crossover, a merge, between human and machine is inevitable.

 Welcome to the Church.

Bernie Sanders: Fast Horse on the Outside Track

sanders

Here in the summer of 2015 the Presidential steeplechase races on toward the third turn. Only those of us with a self abusing love of the sport have kept our eyes glued to the Presidential wanna-bes, their hapless speeches and sideshow antics. While the two major parties have kept pace with one another, trying not to burn out too fast in the public eye, a new horse has emerged on the track who is making great headway; Bernie Sanders.

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt) announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination which caught a large swatch of voters off guard. Many had assumed that Hillary Clinton would go on from this point pretty much unopposed and that’s where all eyes have been focused up to this point. The Sanders campaign continues to grow and the Clinton election posse is now taking notice. HIllary’s Communications Director, Jennifer Palmieri, stated “we (Clinton Campaign headquarters) are worried about him for sure. He will be a serious force for the campaign, and I don’t think that will diminish”.

Over in the other camp the Republicans have yet to unleash any sizable attack against Sanders. They all came equipped with artillery for HIllary, grenades filled with Benghazi accusations and clandestine money funneling by her and her husband. More pressing though is their need to knock fellow Republicans out of the race to take top seat for the conservative voter. Donald Trump was throwing haymakers in Iowa against Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney to a crowd of Tea Party enthusiasts. That mixed bag of xenophobes suckled on the casual problem solving Trump promised like a tent full of
crippled souls at a Baptist revival. His idea of relating to the common person was to make an analogy of Romney’s failed Presidential campaign last election to a golfer missing a three foot putt. I’m sure those criminal rapist Latino voters in our country had no fucking idea what the hell you were talking about, Don.

While the crowd of candidates continued to bark out the name God in a crowded theater and place our country’s ill suffered fate on the shoulders of our current President, or China and the secret organization of Zionist welfare recipients this country harbors, Sanders puts the blame on the uber-wealthy Americans that have all but eliminated our Middle Class.

“In the year 2015, the U.S. has, by far, the most unequal distribution of wealth and income of any major developed country on Earth, and this inequality is worse today than in any time since 1928.”

Another example of Sanders approach to resolving some of the issues we have in America:
“Taking care of our veterans is a cost of war. If you can spend six trillion dollars sending people to war, you can spend a few billion dollars taking care of them when they come home.”

Politicians and every swinging Dick (and vagina) in America can identify the problems in our nation but what to do about them is another story. Sanders approach tends to lean toward building the infrastructure to strengthen our economy and create more job growth, stopping the transfer of wealth from the middle class to the millionaires and billionaires of the U.S. and to introduce a stance associated with the Socialist standings of European countries like Scandinavia. A big scary troll hops out when those dead set on Capitalist standards hear the word ‘socialist’ and that may work against him further into the campaign but if people listen to his words rather than to the mud slinging titles opponents want to throw at him, perhaps they will understand the man a little better. Perhaps not. Time will tell. The horses approach the third turn.
