Gone Fishing

And I am gone fishing, or at least going fishing on a mission to that place in America called Kansas City, Missouri in middle america where seemingly lots of american flags are waved. And from what I hear, that inner City of Kansas City Missouri and Kansas is still reeling in the midst of a crack epidemic, and crime and gun violence are running rampant. And who invented that drug crack anyway, the State? And who is the state? And that drug crack and guns are the worst invention of a death industry ever, and it seems to be the Iron age and Kali Yuga and what seems like the beginning of the end of the world and the deterioration of humanity in these days and times. And there is a blight in this City I hear, so much that the only businesses open in the inner city are the churches and liquor stores. And schools are closing from segregation and desegregation as people move further and further out to the suburbs to avoid the inner city and its changing population and times. And has the face and population of the suburbs changed in time also? And I plan to be another one of those travelling travailling tourists again who attempt to blah blog their travelling travels I guess of whatever the tourists sites there are that that city has to offer. And from what I read, Kansas City Missouri is mostly known for Charlie Parker, that great jazz musician, and bar b que. And some tourists sites there to visit are places like Arthur Bryant BBQ, 18th and Vine, a historical jazz district which is located at the former railroad tracks and border of what was once the street where african americans could not travel past or move beyond in downtown Kansas City Missouri. And decades later, times seem to have changed indeed. And there is also the Negro Baseball Museum located there, The American Jazz Museum, The Black Archives of Mid America and a few other tourists sites I imagine. And I am not sure how my blogahohlicness and trying to find one of those computers to blog my blogaholicness may hold up during these times. And however these days and times may go have a great travelling and blogging day.

Travelling Times




And so again, I take this blog post as a great excuse to post more photos of that travail travelling time that I have been taking photos of the past few days. And those travail travelling times are a great excuse for me to take the camera out of the closet, whose only purpose seems to collect dust these days. And even in the midst of daily attrocities that seem never ending in these days and times with Yahoo headlines that read “Car bomb kills more than 50 at Baghdad market”, and is that a holy war? and another Yahoo homepage headline news story that reads “Probe: Officials warned about harsh interrogation”, another seemingly never ending atrocity article that is something about prisoners and detainees that are being tortured with dogs and other torture techniques and devices by militant armies simply because they are held captive for some reason. And yet the news headlines say the floods are flooding, the earthquakes are here on earth, the price of a barrel of oil is going through the roof, the cost of food is increasing, the rice, wheat and now the corn are disappearing, the war is never ending, Antartica is disappearing, the national debt is going through the roof, the United States Dollar and Uncle Sam are going broke with the European union Euro and the earth is ever changing, and the only thing constant is change. And I wonder if the bees, bats, frogs and fish are still dying and disappearing, and if this is all the beginning of an ecosystem food chain collapse and the beginning of the end of planet mother earth or something else or not. And yet still I find myself blah blogging away for some reason. And those photos above are of more bicycles on the streets of Munich, as Munich is the most bike friendly city I have ever seen with it’s many bike paths and trails, a stark contrast to the mean streets of New York City that is not bike friendly at all and built only for cars and pedestrians and bicyclists in that town can become disposable road kill as drivers are not even penalized unless they happen to be drunk or intoxicated when there is a pedestrian or bicyclist death in that town. And what would that bicycle advocacy group Transportation Alternatives have to say about this. And that other photo above that I posted in this blog entry is of some giant recycling bins that are to be found on the streets of Munich, Germany. And where their recycled trash goes from there, I am not sure, but those big glass and paper recycling bins look sort of environmentally cool and interesting. And then there is that photo of a McDonalds with its big golden American and world wide fast food nation arches. And somehow it seems as if I could have travelled halfway around the world just to go to McDonalds in Germany for some reason I am not sure of. And there is that Kaufinger Strasse near that Marienplatz Glockenspiel Clock building with a pedestrian plaza that is all shopping all the time and seems to be a sensory overload with its shopping houses and stores that is sort of beyond Times Square 42nd street in New York City with its tourists. And there could be more photos that I would like to post of these travails and they are passing me now. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.

These Travails






And I am still finding myself blah blogging somehow in these travails of Germany. And it seems as if I do not blagh my usual news and social events of the commentary of the day as I usually do for some reason in my blogaholicness. And so there is more photos of my travails and travels throughout this town that I would like to post to whoever if anyone other than myself may be readng this blog. And those are a few photos above of that Chinese Beerhouse that is to be found in the English Garden of Munich, Germany and of the inside of Adolf Hitler’s office where the Nazi extermination all started, that is now turned into a music conservatory with no sign of Hitlers past and Germanys grim, dark history, and from the platfrom of that Felderhalle at Königsplatz or is it the Odeonsplatz again that has a putsch memorial to fallen putsch soldiers that people passing by were once required to give one of those Adolf Hitler gruß, Hitler greetings zeig heils to, and where Hitler’s mass rallies took place. And I would hope to post a photo of al the bicycles that are to be found here in Munich, as Munich is the most bike friendly place I have ever came across with its many bike trails, lanes and paths throughout this city. There are almost as more bikes on the streets as there are cars on the streets. There is even a bike symbol posted on the stop signs, a far contrast to the mean streets of New York City that is not bike friendly at all and that seems to be built for cars only where one risks their life to ride a bike down its streets where every street seems to be a highway with literally no bike paths to be found anywhere and where one can possibly become disposable road kill in one of the many pedestrian and bicyclists deaths that take place there each year, month and day, and where drivers are not even penalized or even given a traffic ticket. And what would that bicycle advocacy organization Transportation Alternatives have to say about this. And another one of those photos above with the red and white flags everywhere is of the Turkish Fußball, football soccer team celebrating their win against was it Austria?, in one of those Euro 2008 soccer games that seem to have taken over this City of Munich at the moment with Euro soccer fever. And daily and nightly there are soccer matches between European countries like Germany, Italy, Turkey, Spain, France, Croatia and other European countries I cannot think of at the moment. And everyone on the streets seem to disappear to the bars and home televisions during soccer game time like clockwork each day. And watching these games on television or bars each night seems like watching one big advertisement, as those blatent advertisements from advertisers like Nutella, McDonalds, JVC, Canon, Coca Cola, Castrol, Adidas, MasterCard, Carlberg and other advertisers that surround the soccer field are what catches my eye the most more than the soccer game itself. And this game of soccer seems to be a war and division of nationalities and nations against each other to me for some reason. And again, there are maybe more photos of this City of Munich that I would like to post and they could be passing me now. Have a great blogging day.

Die Freies Musikzentrum München Konzerte






Hey Bloggers, and somehow in the midst of world attrocities taking place daily with headlines that read “Süudafrika: Das Protokoll einer Menschenverbrennung, Ernestos tödlicher Irrtum, Er kam aus Mosambik, war 35 Jahre alt und glaubte, im Nachbarland ein besseres Leben zu finden – doch dann brauchte ein entfesselter mob ein Opfer”, some article in the Süddeutsche Zeitung German newspaper, with a photo of a man being burned at the stake by a mob, and another photo of a man in military gear with a gun that has something to do with african against african hatred against foreigners in South Africa, so much that even they are killing each other, and I can not really understand the language as it is written in German. And this concept I cannot understand, the idea that human man could possibly be inheriently violent against his brother. And maybe this concept could have something to do with Cain and Abel in the bible, as the descendants of man may have inherited this trait that man could be against man and brother against brother and a mans enemies shall be those of his own household. And even on the other side of the world I see guns as the worst invention ever and wonder if it is possible to abolish guns from every human being on the face of planet earth, and to abolish the images of guns from every form of advertising and marketing campaigns on planet earth. Does not advertising influence society. And even on the other side of the world, there are guns and the images of guns in the magazines and pop culture of Munich Germany such as the Filmfest Müunchen 2008 Offizielle Filmfestmagazin programm, there are photos of people holding guns on the pages of this magazne in film advertisements as if to look cool. Has this form of violence in advertising been since the beginning of time and will it be until the end of time, if ever. And is another world possible to be free from violence in advertising and marketing. And finally todays Yahoo headline reads “Gun rights is biggest issue for courts to decide.” And in other random thoughts, I somehow found myself at the Freies Musikzentrum München Konzerte, the Free Music Center in Munich that has jazz, klassik and worldmusic. And the photo of that concert I placed in this blog entry. And that performance featured the Improv Now music of Carsten Radtke, Gitarre, Jürgen Schneider, perkussin, Leonhard Schilde, Piano, and Welf Dorr with this really trippy electronica sounding sound effect delay. And that music rocked. And I thought to post more photos of my travail travel photos in this blog entry because I am still attempting to blog this travel vacation as I see all of those other bloggers do of their vacations out there in bloggerland. And that other photo above is of the Siegestor. And even though I am not really sure what that door gates historical signaficance could mean, I thought it looked really cool at night. And there is another photo of that third reich walking tour from the other day of the Feldherhalle on the Odeonplatz, or is it the Königplatz Führerbau place, some buildings and plazas having to do with Hitler, the Nazis and Germanys grim dark history. And then there is that photo of one of those smart cars, some car that seems to be half the size of those big Amerikan cars and uses half the gasoline. And smart cars they seem to be indeed compared to the gas guzzling hughe suv’s that are to be found in America contributing to the oil overconsumption and waste overglobalism crisis of the world. And again there are more photos and blah blogs of my blogaholicness travail travels that I would like to post in this blog post, and they are passig me now. Have a great travelling blogging day.

A Third Reich Tour






Hey Bloggers, and so I am still finding myself in this City of Munich wondering whether to blog or not to blog and attempting to blah blog my travails and travels throughout this city. And these travels are giving me a great excuse to use that camera whose only purpose seems to be to collect dust these days and take those tourist photos that I usually see other blogggers do out there in bloggerland. And those photos that are posted in this blog have been sitting around for a while now as I have been waiting to attempt to post them at random in my blogaholicness. And I took one of those Munich Third Reich Walking tours to visit the old haunts of Adolf Hitler and his swastika hakenkreuz Deutsche Arbeiter parti, Nazi party the other day to the places of the Braune Hause Führerbau, Hitlers powerbase and office building, which is now a music conservatory, the Königsplatz where those Hitler mass rallies used to take place, and the Feldherrnhalle, some big plaza outside on the Odeonplatz, where even more Hitler rallies took place that has a big statue of lions on it that reminds me of those lions at the New York Public Library in New York City. And there is what is a called a nazi putsch memorial there where people were required to salute with a Hitler Gruß, Hitler greeting zieg heils when one passed by. And then there is the big huge Hofbräuhaus beer hall where Hitler used to have his attempt to take over the world meetings there. And Munich seems to be the beer capital of the world. And I did not know Munich was the birth place and the capital of Nazism. And there are no signs of Hitler and his war to be found here on the streets anymore except in museums hidden away from a grim and dark time for Germany and its history. And then there was this party the other day at der Akademie der Bilden Künste Müchen zu ihrem 200 jährigen Jubiläum, some big party for Das Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin wird 18 und präsentiert das Heft über das 850 jährige München in der 200 jahrigen Akademie: Grund genug für ein großes Geburtstagfest. Some big birthday party for Munich, the Academy Art School and the Dutch Times Magazine. And what an event and a cultural world away it can be for me to see. And those photos above are of the Olympiapark Stadium Olympic Tower, this really big park that was built for the 1970 Olympic games where Palestinan terrorists took the Israeli team hostage during the Olympic games, a grim day for Munich. And that other photo above is of the BMW Welt, the BMW World buildng next to the Olymic Tower. And that BMW Welt building is a design and work of art in itself that seems to be over the top with its beautiful architektonisches, and that beautiful building seems as if it just reeks of geld and money. And those other photos are of that seemingly main central tourist destination of the Marienplatz square Mariensäule column of the virgin and its Glockenspiel Clock in the centre of Munich. And I am not sure if that building is one of the many buildings built by the King Ludwigs and his castles that are to be found everywhere throughout this city of Munich. And then there is the photo of the U Bahn und die S Bahn Müchen Innerraumnetz Tram, the subway train stations for Munich whose system management seem to be run by the MVG. And their train system seems different from that police state of a train system in New York City known as the NYC MTA Metropolitan Transit Authority Metropolitan Terrorize its riders system, as it seems as if one an actually ride the MVG tram for free in Munich and that die fahrkarte, fare card tcket is not even needed, though random checks are done by the ticket control polizei. And there seems to be no polizei police to be found in this Munich subway system of Munich, a stark contrast to the millions and billions of subway police that are to be found as part of the NYCMTA subway and transit system. And a sense of freedom and humaness from oppression it can be to ride the MVG MünchenTram in Munich, maybe. And there are more pohots that I would like to blah blog in my bloaholicness of this city, a world and cultural difference away from that city of New York that I usually reside in. And those words and photos to blag more about are passing me now and I can only blog have a great travelling day. And what, if anything does this have to do with a No Police State?

Von München Bayern




And this is another one of those posts I am attempting to blah blog with a bunch of photos to go along with it from that place I am finding myself in at the moment, München Bayern, according to that postcard I am looking at at the moment. And I guess that would be Munich, Germany in English. And those photos that are placed in this entry from above are of the Englischer Garten, some really big park in the middle of Munich. And that garden seems as if it can be sorme sort of paradise on earth with people swimming without clothes in its streams, that man above sheparding his sheep, that King Ludwig tombstone placard above, some Chinese looking temple Chinesischer Turm beerhouse,and beer gartens and beer houses of what seems like every other single step along the way of this gardens path, as I guess this place of Munich is known for its beer. And I guess there is more I could blah blog about of Munchen on this day and those words could be passing me at this moment. And whatever else it is I could think to blahg about on this day I could only think have a great blogging day.

Grüße aus Munich

And somehow I have found myself on the other side of the world this day from that City of New York that I usually dwell in, to the city of München, Munich, Germany on one of those travail vacations that I usually blah blog about. And I thought to attempt to blahg my vacation travail travels as I usually see those other bloggers do out there in bloggerland. And everything seems different over here in Munichland. And it is the language that I do not really understand, and even the computer that I am blogging on in my blogaholicness seems different with keys, symbols and letters placed everywhere different on the keyboard that I am not used to viewing on my usual computer that I use in my blogaholicness. And so I thought to post a photo of my travels throughout this foreign land to me. And that photo above is of the polizei in Munich. And how funny it is to me as one of those wayfaring travelling tourists to ask the polizei if they could take a photo for my camera. And they did, and how amazing to me. And in New york I am not sure if I think of the police as officer friendlies. And here as a tourist, they could seem officer friendly, and I am not sure as they carry guns all the same. And the polizei police seem to be way more fewer and far between in Munich than in New york, where the police seem to be located every other step and a bazillion police for every civilian. And as in Munchen it seems as if I could go a whole day outside without seeing one polizei, unheard of in that police state of New York where one sees a police every single step outside it seems. And what freedom could feel like if there were no polizei at all on planet earth at all, or at least no guns on planet earth. And this photo was taken at the Streetlife festival 2008, Corso Leopold, Ludwig und Leopoldstrasße, on Leopald Street as I would say in engish, whatever that phrase could mean. Die längste autofreie Flaniermeile der Stadt mit Schwabings Kunstboulevard, whatever the phrase cuold mean in English also. And that festival was really cool to see, of more photos I would like to post of it. And I am not really sure what else I can blah blog about in this post except to write have a great travelling day wherever one may be on planet earth and also, and what does this have to do with a No Police State?

Gone Fishin

Hey Bloggers, and in the midst of wondering about how the economy… a word that seems to have the letters money in it, the recession, the depression, the free, the not so free, the oppressed, the rich, the poor, the bad, the good, the evil, the blessed, the cursed, the wicked, the righteous, the strangers, the weak, the strong, the wise, the foolish, the living, the dead, the bureaucracies, and everyone else in between of the world are doing, I am off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of oz, or gone fishin, on a mission, or at least going fishing out of town from this town of New York City that I usually reside and dwell in. And I may become one of those travellers wandering around being the tourist that I sometimes find myself blah blogging about. And I have no idea of how my blogaholicness may be during this time of travail. And what if I suffer blogaholicness withdrawal if I am unable to find one of those computer inventions to blog my web 2.0 user generated content social media blogholicness, who knows. And what was life like before the age of the internet and blogging anyway. And I would like to attempt to be one of those bloggers who blog their vacations bloggers, as I sometimes find myself reading about their vacations out there in bloggerland. And how do those other bloggers, a million and seemingly bazillion other bloggers blog their travels and vacations all the time is new to me. I could maybe use one of those internet gurus and online how to blog your vacation tutorials to figure it out maybe. And however this time may be, have a great gone fishin, travail travelling vacation day.

A Trip


And I received another one of those Todd Eaton emails the other day. And those emails are a protest calendar and seem to be all protest, all the time, and can be great for someone who wishes to become a full time protester, organizer or participant of some sort to change the world to save planet mother earth. And somehow I wound up on this mailing list and I am not sure how. And I usually look at the titles of their emails of which some read this week: “4/6 SUN: Rev. Billy and the Stop Eviction Gospel Choir‏”, “NYC Solidarity Without Borders calendar!” and “4/2 WED: stop Amtrak and Greyhound immigrant raids”. Now that last email sounds interesting and I thought to repost that it along with a passport posting I blah blogged about a while ago. And what does this have to do with a No Police State? ‏

According to organizers the below action is on Wednesday April 2.

Tell Amtrak and Greyhound to respect immigrant rights. Amtrak and Greyhound: Your Ticket to Deportation. Did you know that you will be inspected by immigration if you travel by Amtrak or Greyhound? Amtrak and Greyhound take immigrants money and sell them out to immigration officials who routinely raid trains and buses traveling from NYC to Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and other upstate locations… Without any warning! Come rally to demand Amtrak and Greyhound publicly apologize, give refunds to families that were detained while using their services, warn people that they will face an immigration inspection when using their services. Wednesday April 2, 2008 at Penn Station, moving on to Port Authority, Greyhound Bus Terminal. For more information, visit Families For Freedom.

And the following is a blog entry I posted a while ago about the passport and immigration laws, as the two seem related somehow:

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 social security act law #666 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 yet again, twice in the same week. Are people now products to be scanned? 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. And now that passage from revelations comes to mind, ” And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Revelations 13.
” First they came for the immigrants and I did not speak out because I was not an immigrant. Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.” Pastor Martin Niemöller. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?

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? 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.

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?
