Tito and Tarantula

Although well known for his soundtrack work for Robert Rodriguez in his "Mariachi Trilogy"; El Mariachi, Desperado and Once Upon a Time in Mexico as well as Rodriguez and Quentin Tarrantino's After Dark, Tito Larriva and his band Tarantula have unfortunately never sold all that well in the States.

Europe is another story, as they have consistantly filled concert venues all across the continent for going on twenty years now with loyal fans of their unique blend of Blues, Goth, Tejano, ... Surf maybe ... some other stuff.

I dunno, this band is a little tough to catagorize.

That's a good thing.

Among the several versions of Tito and Tarantula that have gone out on the road, this is my favorite as I am crazy about Caroline Rippy despite my suspicion that she would likely kick my ass in a fair fight. 

This is Tito Larriva on vocals and guitar.  That master of feedback, Steven Hufsteter playing lead guitar. The lovely and talented, Caroline "Lucy LaLoca" Rippy on the bass and Alfredo Ortiz playing drums.

Tito and Tarantula.

Hombre Secreto.

 

The Strange Face of Love.

 

 

And, After Dark.

 

 

Go see em if they come to town, you won't be disappointed.

Handsome group.

Central Banking

Submitted by Roanman on Wed, 08/28/2013 - 10:02

 

In the year of 2000 there were seven countries whose economies operated without a privately owned central bank, they were:

Afghanistan

Iraq

Sudan

Libya

Iran

Generally accepted "terrorist" hotbeds all.

Cuba

North Korea

Those well known human rights abusers.

 

Today, thanks to the yoeman efforts of both the Bush and the Obama administrations on behalf of the world's central bankers, only three remain:

Cuba

North Korea

Iran

 

It doesn't take much reading up on this stuff before pretty quick you come across the Rothschilds, Khazarian vs. Abrahamic Jews, Synagogue of Satan stuff, the Rockefellers, Trilateral Commission, the Bank for International Settlements, Bilderbergs and The Council on Foreign Relations etc., all of which completely saturates this conversation.

And, all of which, while fun and most likely mostly true, completely misses the point.

That point being, why on earth would any nation put it's national bank and thus it's supply of money in the hands of privately held interests rather than in the hands of a democratically elected or governmentally appointed body, and thus provide public oversight of the peoples money?

The reason is obvious, ... at least to us ... a privately held central bank enriches banks and bankers, or in other words, the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, denizens of The Council on Foreign Relation, Trilateral Commission, Bilderbergs, Bank for International Settlements, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and the other Primary Dealers, all at the expense of ordinary citizens. 

You can think and think and think and think and think and think and think and think and you will not come up with a system for funding your government that is more damaging to the average citizen.

I don't care what it is that you care about when it comes to politics, whether you are of the right or the left, liberal, conservative, socialist, communist, libertarian, anarchist, ambivalent or just plain disgusted, there is absolutely no possibility of achieving anything of your dreams for your nation until the money supply is ripped from the hands of the privately owned central bankers and vested with your nation's citizenry.

Where it obviously, will undoubtedy, absolutely and damn near immediately go FUBAR ......... but FUBAR in most of the world's economies lately, rates as a significant improvement. 

Until people seize control of the supply of their money, it ain't their country.

They are simply tenants or indentured servants or in the term of the day, "debt slaves".

Because ..... If it ain't your money, it ain't your country.

“Conscience -- the inner voice that warns us somebody may be looking.”

“Self-respect--the secure feeling that no one, as yet, is suspicious.”

“We must respect the other fellow's religion but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.”

“The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naïve and usually idiotic. He is, more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair.”

“Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under.”

“Equality before the law is probably forever unattainable. It is a noble ideal, but it can never be realized, for what men value in this world is not rights but privileges.”

“The plain fact is that education is itself a form of propaganda - a deliberate scheme to outfit the pupil, not with the capacity to weigh ideas, but with a simple appetite for gulping ideas ready-made. The aim is to make 'good' citizens, which is to say, docile and uninquisitive citizens.”

“The older I get the more I admire and crave competence, just simple competence, in any field from adultery to zoology.”

“No matter how happily a woman may be married, it always pleases her to discover that there is a nice man who wishes that she were not.”

“It is hard to believe that a man is telling the truth when you know that you would lie if you were in his place.”

“The men the American people admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars; the men they detest most violently are those who try to tell them the truth.”

“The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it.”

“The kind of man who demands that government enforce his ideas is always the kind whose ideas are idiotic.”

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”

“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

“When somebody says it’s not about the money, it’s about the money.”

“The average man does not want to be free, he simply wants to be safe.”

“It is the dull man who is always sure, and the sure man who is always dull.”

“The trouble with Communism is the Communists, just as the trouble with Christianity is the Christians.”

“The essence of science is that it is always willing to abandon a given idea for a better one; the essence of theology is that it holds its truths to be eternal and immutable.”

“Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy.”

“The objection to Puritans is not that they try to make us think as they do, but that they try to make us do as they think.”

“The great artists of the world are never Puritans, and seldom even ordinarily respectable.”

“I believe in only one thing: liberty; but I do not believe in liberty enough to want to force it upon anyone.”

“Government today is growing too strong to be safe. There are no longer any citizens in the world there are only subjects. They work day in and day out for their masters they are bound to die for their masters at call. Out of this working and dying they tend to get less and less.”

“Genius: the ability to prolong one's childhood.”

“Love is like war: easy to begin but very hard to stop.”

This is old news about now, but we think it needs to stay out there as long as possible, as it speaks volumes of the quality of individual holding important positions within the mainstream media.

 

 

 

 

 

"Takes out" of course being a euphemism for murders.

 

The State of Wisconsin just murdered this fawn ..... it's the law.

Meet Giggles. she never got much older than she was when this picture was taken. 

The State of Wisconsin in it's wisdom, just raided with heavily armed Sheriffs and DNR officers the animal shelter where she had been taken in order to euthanize this healthy orphaned fawn, because in Wisconsin it is illegal to possess "wildlife".

 

 

Meet Jennifer Niemeyer spokesperson for the Wisconsin DNR.

 

 

Ms. Niemeyer explains the necessity tor an armed raid on an animal shelter,  

"IF A SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT IS GOING IN TO DO A SEARCH WARRANT ON A DRUG BUST, THEY DON'T CALL THEM AND ASK THEM TO VOLUNTARILY SURRENDER THEIR MARIJUANA OR WHATEVER DRUG THAT THEY HAVE.

Regarding having euthanized the orphaned fawn, Ms Niemeyer offers the following, 

THE LAW REQUIRES THE DNR AGENTS TO EUTHANIZE ANIMALS LIKE GIGGLES BECAUSE OF THE POTENTIAL FOR DISEASE ... AND DANGER TO HUMANS.

It is our strongly held opinion that it is only in Government that individuals this callous, thoughtless and devoid of reason could ever hope to attain a position of authority.

Shame on the entirety of the State of Wisconsin, it's DNR and Ms. Niemeyer.

When confronted with another example of the wholesale and blatant stupidity foisted on the citizens of this and pretty much every nation of the world by their smug but stupid supposed "public servants" we always think of Banksy.

 

 

And

 

 

And of course, Forest.

 

 

And then the morons wonder why all over the country, people are arming themselves.
