Not as jaded as I feared, because when confronted by the introduction of a  blatant authoritarian kleptocracy, I do feel quite disappointed in many of my fellow Americans. More than likely we'll survive this final kick from the dying horse of amoral capitalism.


President Carnage.         The hypnotist's spinning wheel.        What the hell is going on?          


Alternative facts and fake news.          The Bully (thanks Masha Geseen). 


 A warning has been issued.             Ay.                         


Narcissistic personality disorder.                      The use of vagueness.       


Illusion.          Punish the powerless.    


Bomb and ban policy.            Charlie the Plumber.         Power.       


Let common-sense talk on the phone.               Take heart and look to the sun.


Thanks to ABC and NPR for the audio clips.


Help Me

During times of stress, there's a natural inclination to turn to God, religion, a higher power. I found Pastor John. Working on this did make me feel a little better. Praise him.




Pastor John Kilpatrick.            Glossolalia.           Revival, come to America.           Shabababababbah.


Hey!         We are protected.             Yahyahyahyahyahya.        Help me.


Closing out on a low note. A look a the new reality confronting us in the upcoming year.



Too heavy and too disgusting.          Denial of facts.        A lack of information literacy.          Gimme a Little Spray.    


Reason doesn't mean quite enough.       The post-logical era.         The lowest form of argument wins.          


A new technique.           Trust in ego?    


I said no Trump talk until after the the election and I honored that. Now, however, I might have something to say.


Trump supporters yelling from the side of the road.     Drain The Swamp.    


President-elect Trump's supporters and appointees.      Feeling sullied and dejected.    


Alternate choices: an anti-vaxxr or an idiot?       St. Pete Protesters (thanks to Sean Kinane- WMNF)


Crush your voice.     Outgoing Obama and his misinformation.       They are our country.    


Kiss my ass.         Potential disaster.           I am your voice.          There will be no message.                        


I am too old.       I get what I want.        Hail victory!           


Thanks for snippets of sound and ideas fron Dan Carlin (Common Sense podcast)  WBUR On Point w/ Tom Ashbrook , WMNF's Sean Kinane





A Foundscape with a point or two to make.

Communicator notification.       Try your call later.       Police lives matter.     Police helicopters matter.     Our party.

Emergency message.       Remove yourself.     Help!        Incredibly excited.        End my father.      Undecided.

Help the wealthiest.      Someone's trying to legalize pot in Florida.      Photo-ops with the governor.      Stop it.


Camping in North Florida this weekend provided an abundance of material. I use it in roughly chronological order and end with a collage of some of the more interesting sounds.

Way down upon the Ichetucknee river.         Hermine kindling.         Forest bath interrupted by an armadillo.        

How do they shoot up all those road signs in Gun Country?           There will be beans.             Birds, kids, dogs and gunshots.

Sounds of cooperation.          Closing collage.


After this episode, I'm swearing off Trump as source material until after the election. Too easy and too disturbing.  I do get to talk about truth and bullshit, quote H.L. Mencken and explore man's contribution to climate change.

Don't want to talk about Trump.      Some in the media care about truth.           My personal Trump history.           The Gullibles.   

Simple Americans.           President Moron.     Trump truths.     The liar and the bullshitter.        Democracy is broken.         

Climate change and murder.       Understanding Trump supporters,         Racist, sexist, homophobic.         Down the drain.


I am a registered Republican and, this being primary season, I've been inundated by political phone calls.  I decided to take stuff that could have been annoying and turned it into a podcast.

Scandal/Lie/Scandal.     Gary Democrat.     Help.     How stupid.     Rachel the Republican.     Didn't leave the right number.

Sorry I'm not Nokia.      Tatyana.      Making a better zero.      Republicans For Property.       Vote for me.

Stay Republican and cause difficulties voting.      Congressman Grayson: What America needs right now.     Gary Property Appraiser.

Fight.     Michelle the Republican.     Goodbye.


The Democratic National Convention gets run through the mind thing and comes out sounding quite similar to the Republican convention. Featuring John Allen, Hillary Clinton and Barack "Democrat" Obama.

You will fear us.             President ISIS.              Unruly together we can all crash.             She knows criminals: Donald Trump.

America has lost.          Fear Clinton's election.             Fight people.               Gary Democrat soundscape.

Thanks to the STA Network for the clips.


Reality denied at the Circle K.         Baseball bat deaths.           People kill people.           Suicide.         Fracking earthquakes (facts don’t matter).

Denial of causation.         What ever happened to pollution?             Trump supporters true motivation.          

 Andrew Sullivan from New York Times interview July 29, 2016
