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.



And makes my arguments.  Take that Tommy Smothers, you ball sweat lapping flea.  The title of the article was something like Making War To Get Peace.  He was writing about the Congo, and the shamelessly racist nature of The United States priorities when it comes to sending in soldiers.  War is not always wrong, obviously...  however, since we inherited an Imperialistic system that then began to be propped up by  the corporate ruling class, most of our choices have been all about the almighty dollar -- the CIA has it written into their mandate that they are supposed to protect USA business interests.  Did you know that?   Yes, creating a small army for Exxon to gun down the people protesting the oil sludge they throw anywhere they fucking want in lawless countries (check how someone behaves when they think no one is looking to find out who they really are...  not that I am encouraging stalking, though normally I do).  People alone can end up with very, very strange stories they tell er doctors about how the light bulb ended up in their but.  One guy I know choked himself to death with his ex-wives panties and pictures of her all over the bed.  Erotic Asphyxiation  

The neo-cons recently booted from the White House acted like laws no longer applied to them, and look how crazy the domestic spying has gotten --20k american citizens added WEEKLY and millions of us being monitored--the sheer waste of money is mind--boggling...  can you imagine a business that was doing security for america wasting their resources on every college kid who goes to a protest, everyone who goes to Indymedia's websites (they recently tried to get them to turn over everyone who has been to the site, and they refused...  and we are talking 100k plus people -- which they probably would have added in a week...  they really do have a goal of having files on everyone who matters).  Mostly I am referring to the Iraq war.  They lied and conned and had the idea 10 or more years before they finally got a shot at the middle east.  We were already in Afghanistan kicking ass, why pass up the chance, they figured?  Why?  Perhaps because no one else in the country wanted to invade.   So they invented a nuclear threat  (something I learned from them, by the  way, for those who remember my own nuclear related poetry and the resulting mess of confusion that drove Hillary Clinton into thinking the revolutionaries rising around the country during the most active, so far, period of my campaign were from Syria.  Ho....  ).  We abandoned the conflict in Afghanistan, basically... to chase after someone, mostly, because they had tried to kill the present presidents' dad.  I heard him say this once, and about vomited...  he kept saying, The Guy Tried To Kill My Dad....  like that is reason enough to kill hundreds of thousands....  The privileged rich sure do think different.

Now, I am trying to understand the present troop surge in Afghanistan.  I really want to support Obama, to believe that he is the one who has been in intensive meetings for three months, and I have to trust that he knows more about what is going on than I do.   No one in the press seems to ever want to just say, "Well, perhaps if we knew what they do, we would feel the same way."    Let's face it, he is more aware of what is going on in the world than most people... way more than some.   And since he does not seem to really have an ideology like Trickle Down Economics or some other Voodoo Economics to drive his decisions, I would hope he would decide like I would.

IT is hard to trust someone else.   Especially politicians.  We are simply not used to it.  Everyone on the left is disappointed with Obama, but this has always been his stated position -- We need more fight in Afghanistan, and less in Iraq.  He has always supported this war.  He is doing what he thinks has to be done to protect national security.  Ossama Bin Laden recently came out and said what it would take for them to stop their war on the states, and one was that we stop supporting Israel.  Well, 40 percent of the billionaires in this country are jewish, and if you think we are going to stop supporting them, you do not understand how this country works at all.  Money not only talks, it has puppet strings leading right to your very own legs...   This means that they are at war with us whether we are there or not.

If we left and the terrorists used the country as a launching ground for a huge terrorist attack, Obama would suffer for his decision, and so would the states....  a Republican would almost certainly get in and be given a rubber stamp to kill whoever/wherever/// snatch anybody... open back up those private prisons and torture with impunity.   Yes, you can't win sometimes.  Weighing future pain against present pain is difficult for people.   Most people can't save because they do not want to scrimp, let alone eat right, etc...  if we can put off pain, like the cancer from smoking, we will do it.  That is obviously not optimum, and would be a very shitty trait in a president.

I was saddened by the faces of the soldiers in the audience for his speech.  All they were hearing was that they were going to war.  You could tell they didn't want to... who would?  Anyways...  I guess since I have always hated the Taliban, I should be more pleased than I am with this decision... after all, the Marines asked for this years ago, and on the radio show we talked about it a lot, how the Taliban was regrouping while bush went after the guy who tried to kill his dad.

I can't help but feel like shit that he went with a war, but he did what he feels he has to... I voted for him firmly believing that he was more qualified to be president than I am...  that he would make decisions that I believe are right.   So...  I guess here is to hoping he knows what he is doing.  The speech was convincing to me, and  I like that he wasn't cocky and thank god he did not talk about Winning a War... there are no winners.  He knows that.
