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.


when the test itself is biased... the result is biased.

White Firefighters in Connecunt are acting like they have just won a major battle for people everywhere who just want to be treated fairly. The results of a biased test had been thrown out by a lower court, and the white firefighters who protested the results, have been told that they were the victims of prejudice..... They have not won some battle for freedom. They have done just the opposite. You could tell this easily if you deconstruct the situation using the proper tools, like Wittgenstein's truth statements, stand-point theory, Black Power philosophical principles, as well as Mar... this is not something that most people can do, unfortunately. . Unfortunately, I am dealing with a society that takes most of their philosophy from pop stars (it is true -- a lot of them have read the classics, and they filter this down in their songs to the uneducated intellessi--and if you think this does not exist, then you are a snob with a mind too closed to find true wisdom on this planet).

Okay... for hundreds of years, white, western culture, has imposed their values on others. Some of those values I impose on people to this day -- individual and religious freedom. Others are just plain ignorant. The tests for a firefighter look for someone who excelled in academics, which is quite different than excelling in life -- let alone like a no brainer like Fire Fighting. It does not take a rocket scientist to aim a damn hose, though it does a certain heroic, self-less bravado to walk into a burning house to save someone. This is not something that can be tested. There are no questions about where to aim a hose either, making the test worthless for finding out if someone can handled being a fireman. I have a dear uncles who was a firefighter, and him and his wife are no jems, believe me -- they are simply people who learned to play the capitalist game, and looked down on anyone else who did not.

Blacks test lower than whites. The tests are unfair. Period. Blacks often speak in Ebonics, a legitimate language that has arisen from English -- remember, you would not be able to talk English to someone five hundred years ago without a lot of translation, because language changes all the time with new philosophical thought, technology, and general knowledge. People literally walk into new rooms in their mind when they learn something significant. I had this kind of experience when I studied why we have laws that stop whites from discriminating against blacks through the use of race biased tests. Blacks are not dummer than whites. How long will it take these ignoramus whites to figure out that there is No Smoking Bell Jar. This is all about the tests, language, cultural dynamics, and, more than anything else, the kind of parents a child had, and their teachers. A lot of people are let down by both when it comes to growing academically. We cannot allow testing to keep these people from participating in jobs like being a fireman, or we will end up with great testers in the fire department, not great Firemen (why is there no gender neutral word for Firemen in general use, is another interesting question, but gender of the fire-persons is still assumed to be female, and will remain so as long as we assume Firemen are guys -- by merely stopping the assumption that jobs were for men alone, the feminist movement was able to gain the finances, and support, that they needed to grow. Without money and funding,things die in America. This was well known to the men who wanted to stop the women's movement in Texas.
A few women with abusive husbands decided that they would leave their husbands and band together. Others were women who stayed with their husbands, and made simple demands like getting to set up businesses to sell eggs. This alone was so revolutionary, that the men who supported this movement were hunted down and shot. The women were reviled as a revolution against the bible's dictate that men should rule over women like cattle. It says it, whether the people of the book do so or not -- I have only to look at the middle-east to be sickened by how women are treated. Not everyone, because there are enlightened people everywhere, but they are not doing their job on earth very well if their culture remains absurdly brain washed into following cultural patterns sheerly out of habit, rather than any knowledge of actual science, and modern theories about humans, how we shape reality, and how we gain freedom of mind and body. This is what this is about, Freedom. That is what getting a job offers you in America -- without money, you are a slave to a welfare system that keeps you half starved and desperate (for those ann rand fucks out there, YOU GO LIVE ON WELFARE FOR A YEAR, AND SEE IF IT IS THE WONDERFUL VACATION INTO MORAL DECAY THAT THIS BITCH DREAMED UP IN HER PETTY, CLUNKILY WRITTEN, ELITIST BOOK... THE NEO-CONS WHO WORSHIP THIS BOOK HAVE A FORM OF THOUGHT BRAIN CANCER THAT EATS AWAY AT THE EMPHATHETIC PORTIONS OF THEIR PERSONALITIES).

The Decision by Sotomeyer to say that the tests had to be voided, was more than sound. When she once said that a hispanic woman could probably relate better on the podium than the usual white, pampered, rich jewish guy... she was right (I add Jew because it is true, not damning... Jews are great, but they don't always know shit about living in a ghetto, and they are very much told that their are a lot of losers in this world, and their parents will die if they become one -- this is a horrible way to look at the world, and dangerous in a judge; different people are offered various challanges in their lives, and some are damn hard, even impossible, to overcome. Just because they were dealt bad cards or genes does not mean that they should be punished for what they are not in control of..,. and they are -- the poor black man goes to jail, and the rich white guy bails out, then gets some lawyers who talk his way out of his troubles... the poor man gets a lawyer from the court who does not give a shit and has no time for them (When I had my problems for trashing an emergency room doctor who I would have killed and still would if I could get away with it. my lawyer sent me a letter telling me when to show up in court -- 3o days too late, and the judge threw me in jail because I had a warrant that I did know existed. The lawyer and I both pointed out that the letter from her said this, but it pissed off the fat, old, white, rich lawyer on the Big Podium... so he threw me into a jail that denies you medication for the first week, even though he knew I am crippled up and dependent on medication to function.

He did not care. I had long hair and was skinny and was scum to him -- though I have never been arrested before been convicted of a crime before... in 45 years.

The people who believe their should be no racial quota's look at life like this judge did -- like everyone comes from a level playing field, and should have learned how to test. This is not the world that we live in. Many, many, intelligent, capable, personable people do not test well. They would make great firemen, by the way, where after that one test they would be through with academics and learning the actual skills they will use in their job.

Want to have a fair test for firemen? Do a personality profile to make sure they can handle the stress and have the heart of a hero, then train them to use their equipment and how to fight fires, then test them with actual shit they will have to do... not some test that says nothing about their ability.

I get so pissed off over this issue. I worked at places that simply did not hire blacks, by the way... and without quotas, they will never get jobs in places like that, and there are a lot more than you think -- ask a black person if I am right, and if you are white you will probably be surprised by their answer, though you more than likely will act like you are not to be polite.

I hate to mess with people who do heroic acts, but we have to remember that heroics are wondrous acts in otherwise flawed, normal people. No one is perfect. Our jobs do not make us immune to criticism, anymore than our race does.

All good people have to unite under a flag that is beyond race, a symbol takes into account what I like to call 'Cultural Sanity,' which means that when the tests have been shown, over and over, to be biased when trying to determine if someone should get a job or a promotion, we have to face this fact and try to do the best we can with it... in our quest for a fair, and just society.

The US system has within it the mechanism to change things like this, and we MUST NOT ALLOW THE SUPREME COURT TO TEAR APART THIS VITAL LEGISLATION, TO APPEASE A BUNCH OF OFFENDED FIREMEN. I know not giving them raises and promotions that they seemed to earn with the test was seemingly unfair, but if the test was unfair... then the results were unfair.

Face it -- whites are not smarter than blacks. This is the assumption that underlies this ruling. They do not test as well, and a brief examination of what is going on in some of their communities explains why -- here in this city, they have to go the worst schools in the nations. How can they then be expected to test into jobs on the same level as someone who attended a much better school? I got two F's in English and math in high school... b's and c's in most else, except writing and art, where I ace'd. In college, I had an entirely different attitude than the one that was fostered in my home environment, because I had been through intense work on myself after 7 years in AA and various forms of therapy, and I got A's. I did not have to take the SAT because I was older, but if I had taken it, I might have scored low because I did not care about learning when I was going to high school -- like a lot of kids,

I had bigger concerns in my life than what was happening at school; I envy people who don't, but they cannot imagine what it is like to have dysfunctional home life and try to go to high school and take your education seriously. My parents were terrible about monitoring our grades, because they knew from IQ tests that we were what they call gifted... and it was assumed by my mother that brains alone would get us through. My half-siblings were not so blessed, and she gave them 5 bucks for A's,but told us that we should get A's with our brains, so we got nothing. If it were not for my self-parenting skills learned in AA, I would never have even learned how to study. I did not do homework in high school after learning I could get away with it and still pass the classes.

So... stay away from those racial quota's, you so called Supreme Court.. you are not the supreme court by the way -- that is God's domain, and you should tread very lightly when throwing the stones required to judge another.

Yes, I don't care much for certain types of lawyers. Others I have loved for what they do... the law is like a gun, it can be used however you want. And yes, someone does have to judge. They should at least be humble enough to realize that God, in his infinite wisdom, decided not to make all people the same. This gives us a great wealth in the states of different cultures, and I would hate to see that lost because people want to act 'more white.'

In some schools, black children who engage in their classes are ridiculed by their classmates for 'acting white.' This kind of madness exists, and stops some of them from learning to test. We should not blame kids for falling under the spell of peer pressure, because that is how adolescents and children learn what is right, as well as what is wrong, with the various choices we make in our life.

Once again, our society is trying to BLAME THE CHILD FOR THE SINS OF THE FATHER. Our schools are a mess in the inner-city -- nearly 50 percent of the students drop out of some schools... that says there is a problem with the schools, not the students. Lack of funds for intervention into academically troubled students is no reason to stop people from being employed by cities as Firemen, or whatever....

Come to your senses, white boys, before the time comes to gun down the racists... the white race is going to lose its dominance in this society because of sheer population growth and inner-breeding; hopefully, we will be educated enough to join in that society, and not a small, angry population of Rush Limbaugh listeners.
