Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

shadowy groups known as, THEY, GOVERNMENT and WALL STREET

March20

have you paused when someone invokes the amorphous “they” in a conversation, or lecture? as in, “you know what they say”.

they are insidious. the word, the interlopers, it’s pervasive nature unto itself…

consider these other musings, of my own…

the-truth2that smoking Rabbit again

dire Warnings, indeed

the secret series: in pursuit of They

that word is broadly used around almost anything uncertain, sort of like almost any reference to government and Wall Street.

it’s probably worse with government, especially when it’s invoked as, “the government”. such bodies are meant to be form or function, not an end-all reference as if it’s the best or only example.

here is how we can tie it all together to make you feel really uncomfortable:

“they say the government controls Wall Street”.

or,

“they say the government is a helpless pawn of Wall Street”.

so… can you name the dude, bloke, puppet-master that actually runs the government? whom is actually in-charge of Wall Street? how is the ultimate decision made? is it all in the hands or at the feet of a shadowy group of old men, or smoking rabbits? or, is it really about a black pipe-smoking dog?  where do they get their training? are they actually Muslim youth Soccer coaches? don’t they actually have the most influence? what if Atlas really is shrugging?

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

rumors of the conspiracy to hide the truth are to be ignored

December3

Rumors concerning any conspiracy to hide the truth from you are lies and should be ignored.

Does that news offer you comfort?

So… Were I to inform you that I’m the un-noted head of an, otherwise, secret society of skeptics who seek to disprove the foolish beliefs of conspiracy theorists and paranormal enthusiasts (carefully referred to as: Skeptics of Conspiracy and the Paranormal), would you believe me?

How about the media is your friend, and the internet purveys all things factual and truthful?

Or, would you think we, that collective “we”, that might in fact be those insidious “they” often whispered about with uncertainly, were foisting yet another conspiracy to throw you off our tracks?

Take comfort in the simple fact that you know all that you are allowed to.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

Antonio Vivaldi 4/12 – Summer, Allegro Non Molto

February26

Let’s go with: Antonio Vivaldi 4/12 – Summer, Allegro Non Molto.

The story is always about a tree. There must certainly be a tree in it.

And, a smoking rabbit – and, possibly a grim dog (likely in the possession of a pipe).

Yes, certainly that. Damn them.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

…Right then.

I’ve organized the rebellion.

Let’s saddle up.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
