The Passport


And so this seems to be yet another one of those recycle this blog posts that I find myself posting on this blog every so often these days…
For what reason is the number of that passport immigration law that prohibits freedom of travel amongst humanity anywhere on planet earth, and that Section 666 Social Security Act, cashless society, national I.D., the number of your name to receive any state services and everything else in between thing, 666? Is this that save no man that he may buy or sell except that he have the mark of the beast thing in the book of Revelations. Is this written in prophecy somewhere. Did George Orwell or Nostradamus predict this? Is that a coincidence or on purpose that this law has the same number of that beast thing. And who or what is the beast, and what is that mark on ones right hand or forehead. What does that mark represent or mean, if anything. And what’s up with that UPC bar code photo that I placed in this blog entry. And for what reason do all universal product codes contain this number. What the heck does that mean? Is that the number of the beast, the number of man? And what’s that New World Order, Verichip and RFID tag thing all about. Big Brother, Brave New World and technology are here and that’s a whole another blog posting. And I have heard so many green card immigration nightmare stories about green card marriages, lotteries and green card everything else in between. Of people leaving a country and not being able to return for whatever reason. And the stories of loss of life while crossing a border, whether by land or sea. And for what reason are there boarders, divisions, restrictions, barriers and territories of land in this world. And for what reason are people not free to travel anywhere in the world without the permission of someone else. Who invented this concept. Is it possible to undo this passport, visa, citizenship, where are your papers to come here law so that everyone can be free to travel anywhere in this world. For what reason does this concept exist. And who is a foreigner. Aren’t we all strangers in this land. Is another world possible. No one is free when others are oppressed. It is Sunday today, day of God, a day of rest. Or is that Saturday, the Sabbath, Sabado. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?

A HONK! Festival 2010 Van Ride

And so it could have been a scene straight out out National Lampoon’s Vacation, that funny travel vacation movie that maybe isn’t so funny when it finds itself in real life, as I found myself with The Himalayas, that marching band group marching its way to the HONK! Festival 2010, that fifth annual festival of activist street bands that converged in Harvard and Davis Square in Somerville and Cambridge, Massachusetts, near Boston on October 8-10, 2010 the other day. And so again I found myself with the Himalayas at one of those All Car Rent A Car Brooklyn Car Rental places somewhere in the middle of Brooklyn to be found in that city of New York that is to be found in that country of America that is to be found in this world somewhere, waiting to take that rent a van to the HONK! Festival. And so I found myself waiting, and waiting, and waiting, and waiting, and waiting and waiting, and waiting, at that rent a van place that took an hour to open that took another hour for that van to be cleaned out, that took all of that rent a van payers money to fill up that empty tank of gas it came with that gave no discount or acknowledgement of the inconvenience of leaving two hours later than planned. And I guess it’s a good thing there were no planes to catch and only a gig to possibly miss from that rent a van that had some of those door latches missing and one of its wheels misaligned to where it became a shaking vibrationmobile whenever its wheels went over 60 miles per hour giving one images of ones life flashing before their very eyes the whole trip there and back, maybe. And I heard it said all because some other NYC car rental place was overbooked for the holidays. And so back to that Honk festival. And some of this years marching bands from around the country included AfroBrazil, AMP Radical Marching Band, Bahamas Junkanoo Jumpers, Barrage Band Orchestra, Black Bear Combo, Brass Liberation Orchestra, Bread and Puppet Circus Band, Detroit Party Marching Band, Dirty Water Brass Band, DJA-Rara, Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching Band, Environmental Encroachment, Expandable Brass Band, Extraordinary Rendition Band, Factory Seconds, Himalayas, Leftist Marching Band, Minor Mishap Marching Band, Rude Mechanical Orchestra, Second Line Social Aid & Pleasure Society Brass Band, Seed and Feed Marching Abominables, Springville All Star Marching Band, Veveritse, and What Cheer? Brigade and more. And that Honk Festival with the Himalayas and more rocked as in that YouTube video above. Have a great HONK Festival day.

Go Greyhound

Hey bloggers, or whoever could be reading this blog. “Go Greyhound and leave the driving to us”. Or something like that I think their motto goes. And from what I recall throughout my travels here on planet earth is that people sometimes take that Greyhound bus to that destination in somewhere North America and leave the driving to them. And those sides of those buses seem to have a photo of a hound dog going somewhere on them I guess. And so what’s that greyhound bus ride all about when one goes cross country in that country of North America, as it seems as if one has to be up to some serious adventure between sleeping sitting up for days at a time, trying not to sit near the bathroom seat if possible, getting off those buses at all hours of the day and night to transfer to another bus on one of those buses, trying not to get left behind at the rest stop or stranded at the side of the road kind of bus rides, reading one of those novels and books non stop even if it isn’t even interesting kind of rides to ride one of those buses and wondering whether to sit near the front or back of the bus kind of Greyhound bus rides. And that ride sometimes seems to be a ride of hard knock stories. And if one can get two seats to themselves to sit and sleep in on that Greyhound bus ride, wow! What’s that Greyhound bus ride all about.

An Arizona California May Day


And so looking at that Gregorian calendar on the wall, that holiday or workers of the world unite day of a May 1st day to be observed seems to be tomorrow. And so in other thoughts, that topic about an Arizona law and a California immigration debate seems to be in the news a lot lately. So much that it seems to be the headline of the day. And it seems to have something to do with people being able to travel freely, populations and an illegal immigrant law in Arizona or California. And shouldn’t people be able to travel freely in the world anywhere? And so I came across this event as one of those facebook events in my facebookaholicness where part of it reads something like a rally as follows:

“Do I Look “Illegal” Day

Location: everywhere

In defiance of the new bill in Arizona and in support of the Arizona citizens who will face harassment every time they step out their doors, the call is out for everyone to ask the question: “Do I look “illegal?” during the week of May 1st to May 8th. The focus is on raising awareness on the day of May 1st but by the overwhelming response, putting out this message is extending for the rest of the week.

Post the question as your status on Facebook. Throughout the day, send the question out on Twitter. Ask one another the question, “Do I look illegal?” Hopefully, this will get all of us thinking and discussing what exactly does “illegal” look like..

Finally, wear shirts, buttons or hold signs saying, “Do I look ‘illegal’?” and take pictures to either send the Governor of Arizona and/or post them here..

NEW INFO: If you’re in SF, there will be the usual May Day March supporting immigrant workers. This year the protest will take place on Saturday, May 1, 2010, assembling at noon at 24th and Mission streets in San Francisco, joining other May Day protests in New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, and many other cities. Show up, wear your Do I Look ‘Illegal?’ shirts, buttons etc..

This idea was initially from my roommate over a conversation the other night. Then I saw that a t-shirt was being sold that had the same message. So it made sense to take it a next step and share the idea of a “Do I Look ‘Illegal?'” Day with my FB family and friends..

And this facebook event has 77,153 confirmed guests and a host of comments to go along with it.. Wow! Is that a record for a facebook event invite? And so I thought to repost the following posts that I have posted on this blog before some time a while ago that have something to do with humanity travelling freely.

The Passport

For what reason is the number of that passport immigration law that prohibits freedom of travel amongst humanity anywhere on planet earth, and that Section 666 Social Security Act, cashless society, national I.D., the number of your name to receive any state services and everything else in between thing, 666?

And who or what is the beast, and what is that mark on ones right hand or forehead. What does that mark represent or mean, if anything.

Is that the number of the beast, the number of man? And what’s that New World Order, Verichip and RFID tag thing all about.

Or is that Saturday, the Sabbath, Sabado. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?

and then this one also….

Immigration

And on this day is Sunday, that sabbath day of rest, or is that Saturday. And yet I find myself blah blogging away for some reason on this blog. And for some reason that verse from the bible comes to mind, “Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head”. And that other verse, “A brother is born for adversity”. And a friend mentions to me that war is a business. Is war a business? And is it George Orwell’s statement from that nineteen eighty four movie, the war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. And another friends mentions that another friend has been denied entry to that country of the United States, or deported from a country for various reasons. And what does that word immigration mean, to migrate, to travel? Does that internet bible dictionary Wikipedia have an entry for that. And I have heard horror stories of whole families being separated, destroyed and torn apart from this idea of Immigration And Naturalization Services, INS company that seems to be some form of modern day slavery to me. And what about those visas, green cards, forms, applications, petitions, employment, interviews, Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, residence alien from outer space, illegal aliens, refugee, asylee, settlement, immigrant, nonimmigrant, genealogy, nationality, naturalization things. What does this all mean. Are we all not foreigners and strangers in this land. The whole idea that one can prevent another from travelling freely from one place to another on this planet of earth I can not comprehend. And has humanity become slave to computers, that modern invention of technology, to where one is no longer a human, but becomes a robot to technology, a machine, some sort of beast like thing. No one is free when others are oppressed. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?

Backpacking

Traveling and the backpacker. And I must say, I have always thought of the image of that backpacker backpacking it in their travels and sometimes even hitch hiking it across the country in their travels and adventures as a cool idea, as I think more of this type of travel was done by people decades ago during those more free spirit of a times. And I think there are London hotels where there is still backpacking to be found. And I would imagine that there must be a whole science and technique to the art of backing around town and beyond, maybe. And that if one could not figure out how to go about this that there must be lots of information, tips and travel guides to be found online as far as how to backpack. And I always think of the image of backpacking as traveling with as little personal belongings as possible, maybe. And I have heard many a story and tales of peoples travels throughout London and Europe and staying at various places throughout their travels. And those are always usually stories of freedom to explore to me. So whether the campground, backyard or hostel, have a great travel day.

Born Into Restriction


A friend was telling me abut the situation in that is it a city, continent or country of Cuba? And that friend was saying something about how one does not have the freedom to travel freely outside of Cuba. Once born into Cuba and not having the freedom to travel nowhere else outside of Cuba. How is that possible. And this friend went on to say something about the United States, the states that are united I guess, have placed some sort of embargo, or is that a restriction against Cuba for some reason or another from years and decades ago to where only people with money can leave the country or something like that. And then there are banana boats, crossing the border, coyote slave houses, illegal immigrants and all of the perils of risking ones life to travel freely. And this all reminds me of that photo above, the upc bar code and 666, save no man that he may buy or sell except he have the mark of the beast. No one is free when others are oppressed. And the following are some of those blah blog posts that I have blaghed about regarding this subject in times past.:
