this is how it works…

If you start with a cage containing 5 monkeys and inside the cage hang a banana on a string and then place a set of stairs under the banana, before long a monkey will go to the stairs and climb toward the banana.

As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray all the other monkeys with cold water. After a while another monkey makes an attempt with the same result… all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put the cold water away. Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one.

The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the stairs. To his shock, all the other monkeys beat the crap out of him. After another attempt and attack, he knows if he tries to climb the stairs, he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five, replacing him with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment… with enthusiasm.

Then, replace a third monkey with a new one, followed by a fourth, then fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the stairs, he is attacked. Most of the monkeys beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs. Neither do they know why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.

Finally, having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water.Nevertheless, none of the monkeys will try to climb the stairway for the banana.

Why, you ask..  because in their minds, that is the way it has always been!

This, my friends, is how Governments operate… and, is why, from time to time, ALL THE MONKEYS NEED TO BE REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME!

obsessed

A psychiatrist was conducting a group therapy session with four young mothers and their small children.”You all have obsessions,” he observed. To the first mother, Mary, he said: “You are obsessed with eating. You’ve even named your daughter Candy”. He turned to the second Mom, Ann: “Your obsession is with money. Again, it manifests itself in your child’s name, Penny”. He turned to the third Mom, Joyce: “Your obsession is alcohol. This too shows itself in your child’s name, Brandy”. At this point, the fourth mother, Kathy, quietly got up, took her little boy by the hand, and whispered, “Come on, Willy, this guy has no idea what he’s talking about. Let’s pick up Dick from school and go get dinner”.

A modern day warrior
Mean mean stride,
Today’s Tom Sawyer
Mean mean pride.

Though his mind is not for rent
Don’t put him down as arrogant
His reserve, a quiet defense
Riding out the day’s events
The river

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the mist, catch the myth
Catch the mystery, catch the drift

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his skies are wide

Today’s Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the space he invades
He gets by on you

No his mind is not for rent
To any god or government
Always hopeful, yet discontent
He knows changes aren’t permanent
But change is

And what you say about his company
Is what you say about society
Catch the witness, catch the wit
Catch the spirit, catch the spit

The world is, the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his eyes are wide

Exit the warrior
Today’s Tom Sawyer
He gets high on you
And the energy you trade
He gets right on to the friction of the day

vremuri de rahat

tin minte cum, cind eram copil, bunica-mea imi dadea 20 lei si ma trimetea la piata, de unde ma intorceam cu 5 kile de cartofi, 2 piini, 3 sticle de lapte, juma’ de kil de brinza, 10 pliculete de ceai si 6 oua. si imi mai raminea si rest, de care imi cumparam io ce voiam. acum nu mai poti face asa ceva, au bagat astia camere de securitate peste tot.

A good impression of myself
Not much to conceal
I’m saying nothing
But I’m saying nothing revealed

I simply am not here
No way I should appear happy
Stop whining please

Because of who we are
We react in mock surprise
The curse off, there must be more
So don’t breathe here
Don’t leave your bags

I simply am not here
No way I should appear happy
Stop whining please

The dust in my soul
Makes me feel awake in my legs
My head in the clouds
And I’m zoning out

I’m watching TV
But I find it hard to stay conscious
I’m totally bored
But I can’t switch off

Only apathy from the pills in me
Its all in me, all in you
Electricity from the pills in me
Its all in me, all in you
Only eMpTV, cult philosophy

We’re lost in the mall
Shuffling through the stores like zombies
What is the point
What can money buy

My hand’s on a gun
And I find the range, God, tempt me
What did you say
Think I’m passing out

Only apathy from the pills in me
Its all in me, all in you
Electricity from the pills in me
Its all in me, all in you
Only eMpTV, cult philosophy

All the apathy from the pills in me
Its all in me, all in you
Electricity from the pills in me
Its all in me, all in you

Water so warm that day (water so warm that day)
I counted out the waves (I counted out the waves)
As they broke into

The water so warm that day
I was counting out the waves
And I followed their short life
As they broke on the shoreline
I could see you
But I couldn’t hear you

You were holding your hat in the breeze
Turning away from me in this moment
You were stolen as black across the sun

Water so warm that day (water so warm that day)
I counted out the waves (I counted out the waves)
As they broke into shore (as they broke into shore)
