A blood soaked Arthur IS RISING

Gonzo journalism and fiction is a tricky mix.... Welcome to my razor's edge.


I am an elf in the attic making mind toys with sharp edges; an educated writer who gets good reviews, who you can read for free in the rough form of first drafts on the web, or purchase in a book form.
The best soldier does not attack. The superior fighter succeeds without violence. The greatest conqueror wins without struggle. The most successful manager leads without dictating. This is intelligent non aggressiveness. This is called the mastery of men.


Welcome to you, I am John Scott Ridgway, Novelist, Poet, Blogger, Radio and TV writer and actor... five books, also paint in oils and acrylics. I am poet warrior of sorts, a non violent radical, personally, though understanding of those who choose other paths IN THE EIGHTY PLUS COUNTRIES AT LAST COUNT THAT came in this blog ...

The predicted revolutions in the USA and around the would are going to

be violent in the next twenty years, is what the CIA says. I want them to stay peaceful, which is the only way to win this struggle between haves and have nots. They have more guns, we have more people,, and they include the mothers and sisters and brothers of the people they will ask to fight us.... I think they underestimate the police.

NEVER ACCEPT APPEASEMENT OVER JUSTICE. By any means necessary is the reality. . . the USA can be spared stupid wars, but other countries. . . need different solutions. . .

The number of Countries that have come in to have a look at this blog humbles me. Thank you very much.



PROFESSIONALS, HOPEFULLY, like the police, military, etc...

understanding that violence is sometimes needed

does not mean I like anything about the sound

of fists hitting faces

Boxing is too much for me

make me feel like I am watching

dog fights with toothless pitbulls

"I am an artist first, and a politician second," as John Lennon said.

My intentions are to stop the violence from entering into

revolutionary wars

the CIA


will break out in the next twenty years all over the

world, including here...

But Ill tell ya,

if there is not some redistribution of

wealth here there and everywhere




My intentions is to keep these protests peaceful

so we can win

without bloodshed

Total War for Total Peace

Never incites violence

or destroys property

you should be able

to go to protests with strollers and babies

parents feeling as safe as the police

Now, poetry...

I am too far out into the battlefield to retreat. This CHARGE is win or die...


A blood soaked Arthur has risen

be aware

be very aware

total war
for total peace
is being fought

THERE will be many ways to die
and only one to live
give and give and give
until the worlds downtrodden and oppressed
can begin to forgive
before things get bloody and ruthless
My Peace sign shot full of holes
and my reason ignored
drowned out by the roar of machine guns

You cannot break the golden rule
all the time and not expect
consequences from nature

we will fight for our right to thrive as well
we do not accept your sentence
to poverty so you can earn more
by shipping the factory off to China

nothing this mindgame in america can do to us
can destroy this thing inside that yearns for freedom
enough to die in the name of JUSTICE
generation after generation
from time

No more hyper-reality FOR US. We have already spent too long in an oasis of belief where nothing is wrong, folks... Now, we must face this was all a mirage... and try like hell to get out of this desert... or resolve ourself to the fact that we will leave our children to starve in the barren sands.

There are better ways to defeat an enemy than an outright fight, especially if you are vastly outnumbered, like the Elite. MSM PSY-WAR allows them to control our actions through our thoughts, and basically stop our FORCE from activating. I am not saying we should fight just because we can win, I am just saying we should fight before we lose, if no other option is left us.... because a world is at stake.

  • You are a spark in dry timber, stopped from becoming a roaring flame
    They SET UP LAWS THAT ALLOW THEM TO STEAL. MURDER. BRAINWASH THEIR CRITICS. We must begin to feel challenged now to stop them. Or WE WILL LOSE EVERYTHING. PERIOD. THE SKY, OTHER SPECIES, OUR WATER... OUR MINDS. No more hyper-reality for us... too long in that oasis where nothing is wrong folks... we must face this is all a mirage.
    • OUR LACK OF RESOLVE TO CHANGE OUR WORLD MUST PUZZLE THE GODS THEMSELVES.... how can we be this collectively dum? And if we are....then the brains will be looked to as potential saviors.... when all too often they are just psocyo-paths and stooges and scared folks under the gun who are ALLOWED to CON EVERYONE... FOR THE GOOD OF A

A cruel slap woke me to the PAIN
at the moment of birth;
My first cry was NO
buried in unintelligible screams.
I am a man now.
Now I catch your hand and break all the fingers.

the promise

You must be whoever the enemy fears the least
or fears the most.

No other position is saf

da general

Welcome to the spark that inflames TOTAL WAR FOR TOTAL PEACE.

I am too far out into the battlefield to retreat. This CHARGE is win or die...

THE ELVES ATTIC is stories, poetry, essay's, peculiar events in my life . . . oil painting, articles.

Your patience for bearing with me on my first drafts is a much appreciated kindness. Your worldwide interest is my muse . . .Lately I have been writing a book called Gangsta General x, about a revolutionary in the USA, who is fighting to keep the revolt peaceful as things spin out of control in the states after a famine gets the populace hungry enough to change their society once and for all....

HOW TO USE THIS BLOG: There is a black and white jukebox in the right column that you can shut off, or find songs on.... To listen to the COMEDY SKITS FROM THE SHOW PEACE AND PIPEDREAMS... turn off the black jukebox, and turn on the Green one. I play Moon Bong Haze and Jesus...

I have five majors, five books, two tv shows, a radio show, 76 countries at last count on this site alone, and over a million online readers to my credit. I can't thank any of you enough for all of your help and encouragement over the years; the favors and aide that has been offered me, the trust in my leadership... you are all SACRED TO ME ... even you folks I tend to hate.


Thank you.


What If Cohen Was To Do To Blacks What He is doing to gays?

Sure, I laughed at Borat... then later I felt a bit guilty; stories started coming out that he tricked the college kids in the RV into getting very drunk, and then played them into saying racist statements that were out of character. He basically took advantage of the kindness, and tolerance of a lot of people. When he pulled out a bag of shit as a gift from his country, the poor hosts tried to be nice. Americans do this. They may hate someone inside, or have all kinds of misconceptions about a race in general, and still treat that race kindly in person.

He showed that there is racism in America.... a quick Internet search would show you the same thing. It was like he pointed out the color blue was blue. Amazing antics got him there, the acting was incredible, etc... there is a lot of talent involved. They could probably make Cohen cooking an omelet into something incredible.

Now, comes Bruno. He is pointing out that there is homophobia in America. This is basically a sequel to Borat with a different figure of ridicule. Again, he is pointing out the obvious -- like when he shoved his ass in Eminems face, who is said to be homophobic; as someone on record as homophobic, it is no wonder he could go along with this joke, Cohen is said to be straight, so there was no revulsion, as would happen if he was hit on...

Remember, sociobiology has shown us that most of our behaviors are remarkably similar to animals, and when we try to make humans out to be more than we are, we run into all the problems with religions, social stigma toward minority traits, etc.... Animals, as you can read an essay about on this site, have been shown by science to be bi-sexual -- there are even two gay penguins who raised a chick in a zoo... So, whether his mid addled mind will admit it or not, Eminem is a bi-sexual animal. Animals also seek out plants that get them stoned, and that list is nearly endless as well... including a Badger I read about today that ate a bunch of cherries that had hung long enough to get all filled with liquor. Eminem would of course more readily admit that he is an animal in this regard. Try telling him that he is a bi-sexual and I'm sure he would get so mad he would attack you, which says a lot when you have body guards all around who will hold you back, protect you... Oh, well.

People who put down gays hate the part of themselves that is a bi-sexual animal. This basic self-hatred of their species makes some of them fag-bash. I lived in Grand Rapids Michigan for awhile, a small town with almost no crime, but very dominated by a fundamentalist, Dutch Something religion. And there were all kinds of attacks on Gays. A buddy of mine from AA worked in the city for ten years. A thoughtful, educated guy who actually became my sponsor, and I only chose very together, long sober, and brilliant folk for this honor. When he gave up his job as a city assessor after fifteen years, no one would come to his going away party because he was gay. Hard to imagine, but their religion made them particularly hateful of themselves. And we have two basic choices with anger, we can internalize it, which leads to suicide, or we can project it outward, which leads to violence; I mean this last sentence metaphorically and literally.

Bruno is going to embarrass people who he tricked into getting pissed at him. The gayness is not needed for this guy to get people pissed, obviously, since that is what his characters have been about since the start -- but getting these people angry at him, hardly shows they are homophobic. The scene they show over and over of him pissing off some black women for saying he traded for his baby, and named his a traditional African name, OJ, did not need a crazy gay person to make them angry.

So the people who watch this movie, are almost certainly telling their unconscious mind an old and familiar message -- Gay Is Bad and people will hate you. Look up the astonishing number of teenage gays who kill themselves, and you will get a bit of insight into how fag-bashing -- from kids who inevitably are homophobic slamming each other with this term ( unless in direct contact with Gays, and then this shit just makes them feel alienated), to the slur-use of gay on South Park.... meaning this kind of talk is downright MURDEROUS.

He is basically doing a minstrel show. I wonder what would happen if he pulled this shit in black face, going around exposing that prejudice? I have seen this done in serious reporting, and people notice the shift in societal perceptions right away. They show that there is still racism without offending blacks. Cohen going out and playing a mean, misogynist, dope dealing, pimping black guy, and going into projects to show black racism and homophobia, he would almost surely have to move to an island somewhere to avoid getting capped. His rap character by the way, seems to make fun of black culture, as handed down to white rap stars (you can make fun of these people for adopting a certain way of speech, or whatever... but they respect the black culture enough to do an honest portrait, where as Cohen makes fun of that culture).

Now, I do not think that anyone should necessarily avoid insulting people with their humor. If that criticism is valid. Strictly making fun of people for a God given attribute, that is another story.

If God was a hung up on heterosexuality, He would not have created a bi-sexual animal kingdom... unless, the hetero idea is part of our punishment for eating from the tree of knowledge?

I do not think that the people behind this movie think they are doing anything bad for the gay's... and this more or less shows their ignorance, and homophobia. Most of our thinking is done with our unconsciousness mind, in wordless parts of our mind that interpret emotions and images... this film, deconstructed ever so slightly, is gay bashing on one level.... people would see that if he put on a black face, instead of going with being an Austrian. The Austrains are sure as hell pissed.

Cohen is out to make a buck, a rep, be a star. I guess that he is trying to something real with his art means I have to give him a break.... still, I think I prefer the Jamie Kennedy school of this, where he plays with peoples perceptions by doing things like dancing with the alleged corpse of his dead wife at her funeral. Basically, he gets the same funny reactions we love, without having a hateful portrait of a minority. His white rapper moves showed a loving portrait of black culture by the way....
