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.


can anyone explain to me why they are mandating that people buy HEALTH insurance?

I hear different answers and have not settled on one myself.  I hear the Democrat's saying that the Insurance Companies are so powerful, that this is the best that they can do in the face of such overwhelming wealth, and then I hear the Republican's saying that they do not want mandated insurance because ... well, it is wrong.  Since I know the slash and burn policy that they have on this issue, trying every tactic in the book to derail and delay anything which might effect the drug and health industries profits, I know that they do not actually think it is a bad idea to give this BOON over to the insurance companies.  So, I guess the Elephants are more than likely full of shit.

It breaks my heart that Democrat's are going to be the ones who pass a bill with this in it, but if the rest of the bill would not exist at all without this provision, what hope do the Dem's have?  Doing something, or nothing?  Something is what anyone would choose.  So, I understand this.

Problem is, we need another election, and a larger leftest block, to actually pass the kind of health care package that most non-partisans agree upon.  If this is the case, and the best we can get is what we got, well than that is a problem of the system itself, not any individual politician.  Unless this system becomes so Democrat that sweeping reforms can be passed, we are simply doomed to stay in this netherworld where honest to God health care reform remains just out of our reach, because that is more profitable to the vested interests involved, who give a lot of money to politicians.

Like I said at the beginning of this pile of words, I honestly do not know.  I get more disgusted with politics because I am more focused on it than ever before.  My buddy Chris, one of the funniest writers I know, and a person of true depth in most respects, stays out of politics, creates his little garden, and thanks God for the time he gets to spend surfing.  One of the smartest roommates I have had, and I had some smart ones, was a classical guitarist who turned me on to the Nation, though he pretty much had quit reading any newspapers or watching tv news years before.  He finally even gave up the Nation, after declaring that it seemed like all of his years he was reading the same news day after day and all of it was depressing.

I used to avoid any writing that had current, cultural trends.  I wanted my work to be like Shirley Jackson's The Lottery, utterly timeless.   I had been advised at the time that all the great writer's considered this matter, and I was a fairly earnest student and I bought it hook line and sinker.  I used my political opinions in advanced classes in school, exposing my far-left bent where it was nurtured, rather than ridiculed or misunderstood or both, of course.  Everywhere else, they seemed fairly worthless.  The country was run by the right wing and god knows who in the shadows?  What would that ever have to do with me?  My dreams were of art, not politics.  I wanted, like all artists want, to please people with my work, in the same way my mother once was when I took her my first drawings as a toddler.  From something that simple all else seems to come to pass.

I have been well insured, un-insured, and insured by a government program, medicaid.  I can tell you for sure that the first was best, the second sucked, and the latter is just fine.  I can also tell you that if the government tried to get me to buy health insurance at different points in my life, I would have said Fuck You, I need that money to pay my bills and make some fun out of this life.  I did the same thing with car insurance.  I got rid of my car over this, actually.  I am too old not to know that shit like car accidents are going to happen, and I do not want any trouble with the law.  I always felt better, too, when I was fully insured... but there were times.
And I am a fairly  responsible human being in most respects.  Other people run from the cops over not having insurance, or cripple someone drunk and have no insurance, etc... the horror stories are too obvious for anyone except me to even repeat.

Looking at the world is like seeing a fractal constantly showing another pattern the closer you look. I suppose we will all have to wait and see.  At least they are addressing this issue, which Bush did not even have on his

I love this picture.  Something about having the red elves attic over it looked Christmas like for a blog opening. The day after I put this up, I happened across that she had just been interviewed and said that monogamy was not essential to a relationship, raising the collective hopes of males the planet over who never even would have bothered trying to compete with a millionaire movie star stud-winkle like Brad Pitt.
