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.


a tea bagger talking about taking up guns against liberals and non producers

That is some scary shit.  I just read a speech by one of these goof balls calling for civil war.  I guess they forget that they are firmly in the minority, and would get their asses handed to them.  I would laugh my ass off, from my liberal fiefdom in Chicago, if the right wingers suddenly tried to pull a revolution and everyone of sane mind just got their guns out and killed them off.  Bam.  Problems solved.  Sad.  This speech laid out the classic guerrilla scenario of spontaneous combustions of revolt breaking out all over.

The guys use of the term 'non-producers' is interesting too.  He wants to kill them off, along with the liberals.  Makes me think of death camps.  I forget there are actually people out there who advocate such things.  They do not get a lot of press, or they are hidden behind polite masks from most society, but there are a lot of people out there who are ready to Pogrom another. I once heard an otherwise nice 'seeming' girl say, "My mother, the social worker, says we need to kill an entire generation of blacks off."  She said it with firm conviction in her voice.

My experience with blacks is a lot of different than most white people,  I got over the us and them thing very young, and never had much of it anyways.  If anything, I was more prone toward thinking people are better than they are, not less...  The us vs them is the danger.  The taste of blood that sets off the lust of the shark.

I see these tea baggers and others as deluded into the idea that their revolution is noble.  I believe this about mine, at least some of the time.  I remember stumbling across the idea of the final solution, in my rambling dialog with myself and the word, and wondering what would I do, if the only solution to a horrendous problem, was to have a group of people killed?   I would never put such a dangerous pondering into actual practice, except as a comedic daydream venting my frustrations in my three stooges with guns fantasies.

I want to laugh this guy off.  I want to, but...  something has been festering out there in the minds of some, a diseased way of thinking that demonizes all government, and tries to give something like The Church all power.  The will of the people is what a democracy follows.  If the will of the people is to have health insurance, that hardly means they are socialist.  This issue, in my mind, requires no party affiliation.  Everyone wants health care.

The corporations and lobbies that fund these over-wrought, hateful types, use them as puppets in a show meant to convince others of their narrative.  NOT OF ANY TRUTH.  Of an entire story.  They take whatever fact they want demonized, and put it in that story.  They do not want prescription drugs to have to stand up to scrutiny about how well they work compared to cheaper drugs, so they buy a commercial to display the right-wingers who echo their message, though for entirely different reasons.  You think the right wing cares about pharmeceutical profits?  No, they are worried about birth certificates, Waco, and That Obama Character -- you know, the black one??  They say they should not be accused of being racist, but they act racist, expouse racists doctrine, and advocate a policy  that is going to have a very, very direct impact on the black community.  Blacks have much higher rates if no insurance than whites.  This has even led to some of these boofs to say this  a form or Reperation?  Forty acres and a mule, condensed down into a medicaid card.

Not that this is a race based issue.  This is a humanitarian issue.  I am merely pointing this out, because in case these red necks ever want to come to Chicago to make trouble, they should know that the blacks here are as armed as any peckerwood from out west/down south/up north....  Just kidding.  This is not a challange to my right wing, peckerwood audience.  You guys are okay, just keep watching the Care Bears and we'll up your education from there when you are ready.

I read about these guys and figure, the FBI is reading this, and more.  They must have this guy on the GPS, or they secretly approve of his actions.  You never know.  The different political parties play out there, too, I imagine.  I would think the FBI would keep watch on these types.  The ones we have to worry about are the ones that no one knows about.... but that is the thing about people who are this radical, there are some signs. You do not wake up one day and decide that stopping national healthcare is a good reason for a revolution.  This is fairly delusional to most of the free world, where they have nationalized health care.

People... I saw Obama talking about how he was trying to get people to be civil.  That was a refreshing moment for me.   Civil.  I loved the cab rides where everyone just acted civil.  Where the differences were with the facts, not the people.  Civil.  Where the messenger is never blamed.  Civil.  He went on to say the shrill voices get heard, and the civil toned is drowned out.  Yes...  this has been a problem with democrats forever, the republicans commanded the drunken passion, while we knew better.  Still, that drunken passion is powerful stuff, addictive, and it motivates people.
