American Freak Show

Brat Pukecannon is no longer the big star of the four star general morning java show.

The American Freak Show stars Blind Willie McTell, Jo Jo, Meeker, and The Barn Oracle.

That show is a "Brand" of Momma Freak, who always aims to turn your lights on or put them out, cause she don't mind, she don't mind, she don't mind, cocaine.

This post will get into the details of the show a bit more in a minute.

But before getting into that, lets focus on what a real journalist says about the show:
Seen the arrow on the doorpost
Saying, “This land is condemned
All the way from New Orleans
To Jerusalem”
I travelled through East Texas
Where many martyrs fell
And I know no one can sing the blues
Like Blind Willie McTell
(Blind Willie McTell, Bob Dylan). The Dylan Meister had an eye, a pen, and a penchant for crystal clear reality concerning the show:
You hand in your ticket
And you go watch the geek
Who immediately walks up to you
When he hears you speak
And says, “How does it feel
To be such a freak?”
And you say, “Impossible”
As he hands you a bone

Because something is happening here
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones?
(Ballad of a Thin Man, Bob Dylan). Blind Willie McTell does not know that The Freak in Chief controls the High Priest In Chief, who makes the puppets for the American Freak Show to shoot down as cover.

Some other journalists from the land of the down unders (where you don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows) were also very well aware of the show:
Jo Jo was a man who thought he was a loner
But he knew it couldn't last
Jo Jo left his home in south Pensacola
For some Barn Oracle grass

Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged

Sweet Meeker now thought she was a woman
But she was another Blind Willie McTell
All the girls around her say she's got it coming
But she gets it while she can

Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, Freak Show
Go home

Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged

Oooh ... Yeah ...
(Freak Lyrics). Now that journalism has morphed into pabulum entertainment, no one can sing the red, white, and blues for the American Freak Show like Blind Willie McTell.


  1. Some might wonder how Bob Dylan could be considered a "journalist". But a journal is just a record, and a journalist is the one that notes & writes that record.

    Can anyone doubt that Masters of War is a journal much like the journal that James Madison wrote down?

  2. Randy,

    Maybe the connection isn't made because some news is the type that lasts a century, that is, it is still valid after a long period of time.

    Madison writes, in his journal that you linked to, that war is such corruption that it is the enemy of liberty, even to the point of destroying freedom if it persists.

    That is as true today as it was then, so it is the big news.

    Frivolous journalism, "The American Freak Show" is what my post was about.

    The main stream media (including MSNBC) majors in the minors and becomes the babysitter rather than doing its job of making a journal of the loss of liberty as a result of endless war.

    The more dangerous political freaks are those already in power for years, the masters of war, whom the main stream media supports.

    That they do not support idiotic candidates who can't get elected anyway is frivolous journalism posing as the real thing baby.

  3. Concerning 9/11 and the proper use of available materials by libraries, the Journal Information For Social Change has a report showing how the U.S. media has failed at journalism, but how a lot of the rest of the world's media has not.

  4. On Wednesday the show was falsely arguing that contributions years before the Citizens United v FEC case was the same as the wealthy 2% giving millions surreptitiously to republican campaigns, as if that case did not change 100 years of political contribution law.

    Surely they know now is not then so they are deceiving on purpose.

    When is Blind Willie McTell going to cover the onslaught of foreign money to his MOMCOM's coffers?
