To say that we are having a difficult time adjusting to our move away from Florida and back to Ohio is an understatement. We really have not found our way since moving back home and this has been going on for quite some time. Here is something that I had written in April of this year.

Waking up this morning and seeing the dusting of snow on the ground and all of the cars in our apartment complex seemed strange but oddly familiar. We had spent the past 6 years of our lives where snow was only seen when visiting family and was not something that can be seen just by waking up in the morning from our own bed. We are no strangers to this having lived in Ohio for a majority of our lives, but somehow, now it seemed foreign. It was another reminder that our lives have taken a strange turn. In our attempt to come home and find happiness, family, and familiarity we have found only awkwardness and uneasy feelings. The snow this morning represented the overall blanket of emotions that I have been feeling since moving back to Ohio.

To make matters worse the D-Team had been covering the much-anticipated opening of Toy Story Land at Walt Disney World which prompted me to delete all social media apps from my phone for a week. Enough was enough. These people are good at what they do. They are good at distracting us from more important things in life by showing us videos of Slinky Dog Roller Coasters and new food options. The issue with this audience is that I know what they are doing and let’s face it a large part of me was still missing being a part of it all. The last thing to really open was Pandora: The World of Avatar and we were able to go to the Passholder Preview and enjoy the new addition to Disney’s Animal Kingdom without all of the crowds. We are no longer locals. We are no longer special.

Now let’s cover some CI for a bit. I have explained that there are many distraction teams and that the D-Team is but one very powerful and influential team. They approach things from a fun angle, an entertaining angle if you will. This team hits people in the heart with nostalgia and family fun. Not all teams operate under this innocent umbrella as you can imagine. One such team that does not have the best reputation is the P-Team. This is the Politics Team. They will use any trick in the book to make the public change direction. They will resort to anything to pit one against another. They can tear apart families and lifelong friendships. The P-Team is able to reach into peoples emotions in a way that only one other team has come close to achieving. I will give you an example of something that I know the P-Team was responsible for just a few days ago. I almost fell victim to the lie and made a few enemies along the way.

There was a post on Facebook where a gentleman claims that a neighbor put a note on his door instructing him to take down his American Flag. He goes on with a diatribe about how American he is and has a right to fly his flag and the typical rambling. This gets the far right of this country all up at arms(which they have a right too, 2nd Ammendment and all) and they share and share and share. This video gets so much attention and makes the owner of the video and the Facebook page sharing the video a lot of attention and more than likely profits. Not only do they profit but they do what they had set out to do which was to distract us all and pit half of us against the other. Chances are that the note was written by the person doing the video. Chances are that there was no neighbor or if there was he was also in on it. Do we ever stop to think that could be a possibility? No, because they make it look so real and they hit us in the very reactionary part of our brain. The ultimate irony would be if they were liberals and they used all of the exposure and profits to fund further projects to spread their agenda on the left. I almost fell victim as I said by challenging the validity of the post on a share by a family member. All that would have done was to feed into the hysteria and started friction between me and family members that I care about and who I believe to be great people. They, in my opinion, had been misled but it was not my place to mention it and they would not have believed me. That is why I don’t have much fear in this blog being shut down. THEY know that no one will believe this nonsense that I am spewing. The lies are often times easier to believe than the truth.

I will leave you with this bit of advice. Be careful what you believe. Be careful what you react to because it get’s down to our very core to start messing with our political beliefs. We may bend on many things but not on politics. That is why the P-Team is very effective. You have to be pretty intense to be a part of that team and I just don’t have the stomach for it. My blood pressure shoots sky high and I try my best to avoid it like the plague. Next time we will cover the other team that can give the P-Team a run for their money in the reaction and distraction department. I’m pretty sure you can already guess who that may be. I will give you a hint: The R-Team.

While I am concerned about being found out, you should understand that it is not enough to keep me from trying. Plus, I have been doing what I do for quite a while and have really been pushing the boundary for a little over 3 years. It saddens me to say, but I am not very successful. Maybe it is because there is a subconscious part of me that understands that what I am doing is wrong. Maybe on some level, I am doing things to sabotage the success of my project. At any rate, I don’t think anyone will find this information and even if found, wouldn’t find it any more of a threat than a child writing nonsense in a diary.

For the past 3 years or so I have been a part of the D-Team (Distraction Team) focusing on theme parks. I am basically a wing of the specialty D-Team focusing on Walt Disney World and the Disney company as a whole. The Walt Disney Company is one of the largest and most influential divisions. It has become increasingly important as the years go by and their ability to get the job done has allowed them to take over other very important projects like Star Wars, Marvel, and most recently 21st Century Fox. These acquisitions gave the appearance of buyouts but in all actuality, the PTB (Powers that Be) had lost confidence in the individuals in charge of running these projects. I had researched for years which project I would like to undergo and I knew that covering such an important project in the overall plan would more than likely mean job security.

It has been a rough road because I was certainly not the only one to choose this path. The competition is fierce in the Disney branch of the D-Team. It is completely saturated! Everyone with a smartphone and a YouTube account is out there trying to do the same thing. Many times I have had to seek out part-time jobs to help supplement what I receive from this project. As I am writing this I see notifications from people who are succeeding in their projects. They have found a way to succeed and for that success are rewarded by The Disney Company and the PTB. They are given special passes to events, preferential treatment, and a heads up on any upcoming news. This is a huge advantage in our business. It is frustrating for those starting off like myself but we also understand that they have earned it.

A little about my little project. It is called Theme Park Brothers and consists of a YouTube Channel and website as well as the necessary social media pages and accounts through Facebook, Twitter, etc. It began as a way to contribute to The Plan by documenting our journeys (my wife and two boys) as we lived our life in Central Florida. I figured that we could have these memories later in life and that maybe people would enjoy watching them to the point that my project would be a success. We have grown slowly, and I have learned how to make the episodes more watchable. I still have a long way to go and we are still trying to find a way to connect with our audience. It has been a lot of fun doing the channel but also has been extremely frustrating. We will have plenty of time to get into these specifics.

I know that today seemed a little light. Not much in the overall dangerous conspiracy side of things but this is the way it needs to be. We need to build the foundation. We need to get your overall knowledge up to where many of the more nefarious deeds are more easily grasped and understood. This foundation will be the key to our success.

 

What I Learned from Cornbread

0

I want to tell you a story about cornbread. I know what you are all thinking, “not another story about cornbread?!” The other day I receive a text from my wife asking if we were out of eggs. I knew this was somewhat of a rhetorical question as she was at home in front of the refrigerator and I was not. I turned to my oldest son, who typically uses the last of something without letting anyone know, and asked if we were out of eggs. He answered in the affirmative. I then let my wife know an answer to the question that she already knew. She had begun to prepare cornbread and had poured the mixture into the bowl only to find out that there were no eggs. She then simply leaves the bowl and goes about a quest for something else for dinner. I know this story is not very exciting, but I swear there is a point.

The next day I went to the grocery store and while there I picked up some eggs thinking that I would go ahead and fix the cornbread to go alongside the chili I was preparing for dinner. What a fantastic way not to waste 62 cents. The plan was brilliant, and I was very proud of myself for thinking of it. I arrive home and put away the groceries and set out to get the cornbread into the oven. I reach for the milk and, you guessed it, there was no milk. Insert expletive here as I realize, I too, had been foiled by lack of one of the four ingredients I needed to make this cornbread. What to do? Oh, I’m making this cornbread now! I got back into the van and drove back to the store.

I need to back up a bit. When I was at the grocery store I noticed an older lady in a motorized wheelchair passing by my car with her groceries hung all around and walking with a child who may have been around eleven or twelve. I said hello and smiled, and they went on past. I assumed they were going to their vehicle. As I was returning to the grocery I passed the lady and young girl walking down the road between the grocery and our home. They had walked to the grocery store and in the time it took me to drive home, unpack the groceries, start the cornbread, realize I was missing an ingredient, get completely bent out of shape at all the bad luck that I had, drive back to the store, buy the milk, and as it turns out return home from the store, they still had not made it back to their home. Reality check number one.

When driving to get the milk I was not going to go back on the main road to the grocery store. Oh no, I had been too inconvenienced by all this nonsense and I was going to just go to the corner drugstore by our house and get the milk. It is maybe a 30 second difference in time but that is not the point. I have been inconvenienced! When I walk into the drugstore that I had no business even going to for milk I was immediately greeted by an overly friendly hello! Oh great, someone who is having a much better day than I wants to spew their happiness all over me. My initial reaction was one of contempt and wishing that there was another register open so I could go through their line. Maybe someone not so chipper. In the time it took me to get to the milk cooler and back to the checkout his enthusiasm and happiness became infectious. I heard him interact with other customers and his attitude really did start to change my mood. I asked him how he could keep up such a positive outlook on life and he began to tell me a short story about his life and previous jobs and the trauma that came with one of them. He said, “This, I could do all day long!” And I was complaining about ingredients for cornbread. Reality check number two. (There are actually so many takeaways form this interaction such as positive attitude and behavior having effect on others but we are talking about cornbread here and I am a bit longwinded as it is.)

I know that you are all wondering if this cornbread was baked. I can tell that you are at the edge of your seats. We will get to that. As I drove the few minutes back to the house after this interaction I once again pass the lady and child walking with their groceries and I lose it. I mean I broke down into tears and felt like one of the most horrible people on the face of the earth. I was complaining so much about this cornbread and my circumstances that I was having trouble seeing that there were others that had it worse. I’m not sure if you believe in God or a supreme being of some sort. Maybe just a force that guides us through this world. I am convinced that there was a force out there that was going to make sure I picked up on these lessons along the way. I pulled myself together and went back inside to prepare dinner and, yes, the cornbread. Cornbread was baked and there were no further hiccups with this 62 cent box of cornbread. I know, a little anticlimactic huh?

The Lessons

Sometimes we get so frustrated about the issues that we are facing in life that we don’t stop to think that others may have it way worse. We were lacking ingredients to make cornbread. Big deal, at least we had the ability to quickly run to the store to grab what we needed and problem solved. Some would have had to take a few hours out of their day to make that happen. Some would not have had the money to go buy the milk. A lot of times I hear extremely wealthy people get upset about someone taking an extra $10,000 in taxes from their millions of dollars and they act like it is the end of the world. They blame lower income people for their lot in life and refuse to appreciate what they have and understand that there may be people who would laugh at their “problem” as I’m sure people would laugh at my cornbread issue. Perspective may be the key here. No problem being upset about an issue that faces us but maybe have a little bit of perspective.

The situation that the gentleman at the drug store explained to me is one that no one should have to experience and live with the rest of their lives. I’m not sure how he would not be cynical and upset and bitter for the rest of his life. He had made an effort to move on and see the blessings that he now has. He remembers his struggles to help him appreciate what he has, but does not focus and dwell on them to the point that they negatively affect his life.

The last lesson I learned was how much effort, emotion, time, and focus can be wasted on something as simple as cornbread. Think about everything that was a result of preparing this cornbread. The amount of frustration, texts, driving, cursing, and epiphanies that came from overcoming the obstacles that lead to the preparation of the cornbread. I feel that it is a metaphor for life. This cornbread represented what we all go through in life. We try so hard to accomplish a goal and it seems obstacles are always in our way. We become hyper focused at accomplishing the goal at all costs. We persevere and we do what is necessary and finally we hit the summit and the goal is accomplished. So, keep fighting, keep learning lessons along the way. Keep baking that cornbread because the lessons learned through the cornbread will be there the next time there is something much more important.

Another lesson was learned days later when only one piece of this cornbread was enjoyed by the family. As I scraped most of the cornbread out of the pan and into the trash I chuckled to myself and wondered if it was even worth all of the effort. The answer was yes! That cornbread taught me so much.

I shouldn’t be writing this. My nerves are shot. This is a very dangerous idea but seems like a necessity as I break things down in my mind. What if they find out? Well, that would be the end for sure. Not quite able to fathom the things that could happen. I have a difficult time digesting the things I have seen, the hinting of the things that I have not seen. My mind tries to wrap around the information that is constantly fed into it with very little luck. I feel that I must get down everything I can while it is still somewhat fresh in my mind. The people we are dealing with here seem to have a way to “fix” everything. I already feel some of my memory fading, as if slowly being wiped from the hard drive. I can almost see the green progress bar going across the screen of my mind. This scares me. It scares me because even deeper than the fear of being found out is the fear that this behavior will continue. The fear that without these notes the very projects that I have been asked to be a part, the selfish and evil plots that have been contrived in closed-door meetings, the underhanded downright sinister outline that is being followed will continue unquestioned.

Questions? I’m sure you are full of them at this point. I will do my best to explain everything but understand that even though I know too much and almost enough, there are still many gaps that need to be filled. Hopefully though this journal I will be able to capture the memory of events that have not been excavated and wiped from my brain. The still very vivid memory of my life for the past 20 years. Getting all of this down can serve us moving forward as more questions get answered. Why are they doing this? Who are they? Who does it effect? I can answer the last question simply, it affects everyone! There is not an individual on this planet that this scheme, this ongoing series of events does not affect. That means you…interested now?

My writing may seem strange at times, even a little all over the place. Understand that I am fighting years of regret at the things I have already been a part of while dealing with the fact that my work is still going as I try to understand the inner workings and how it may all be brought to an end. That is a lot for the mind to take. I still believe that they are on to me and that slowly my brain is not completely my own. Do I think they have the ability to control my thoughts? No, well I don’t think so. I wouldn’t put it past them but for now, I think it is about slowly erasing my thoughts. It is about doing so systematically so that it appears to be a naturally occurring event. You know what I am talking about. It has been happening for years and we are made to blame our age or some degenerative disease. We simply think it is part of growing older. What if I told you that I have seen the science that showed proof that the brain functions the same no matter the age unless acted upon by outside forces, THEM?

One goes through life gaining knowledge. They see things, they hear things, they don’t always understand what they are hearing or seeing but the brain works behind the scenes to piece things together. We are often very close to uncovering things. Things that I am trying to explain, things that we would be better off not piecing together but mankind needs us to uncover. The more knowledge that we feed our brain the closer we are to figuring things out. Now they have not figured out a way to manipulate the brain, that I know of, but they have figured out a way to erase crucial information so that solving the puzzle becomes more difficult, if not impossible. That’s why some lose their memories sooner than others. They have gained more information (intelligence), or at least more crucial intelligence. Once someone’s CI (crucial intelligence) level reaches a certain point it must be lowered. We see it as simple memory loss and try to combat it with herbs and supplements, which again feeds into the overall project. In severe cases where CI is rising quickly, we see it as diseases and we call it dementia or Alzheimer’s.

That might be enough information for today as we do not want a noticeable spike in your CI. Can you believe that it is someone’s job to monitor this? If we do not move slowly they will be notified and I will, most definitely be eliminated, and you will lose memory of this and possibly memories that you would like to keep. The memory targeting program is not always as accurate as it should be. Try to take in what has been mentioned today. Process it and move about your life. Don’t give it a huge priority because memories and thoughts are prioritized and this prioritization can also lead to higher than usual CI levels. You are just going to have to trust me. While we are in a race against time we must make sure that we do not tip our hand. I understand completely anyone who would choose to stop reading at this point. You will be completely safe with the information that I have given you. It is nowhere near enough. If you do decide to continue with me I will be careful to only give just enough information each time to keep us off the radar. Goodbye to some and for the rest of you, hold on it’s definitely going to be an interesting journey.

Sorry to seem vague but it is for the best. Answers will come.

The secret of patience is to do something else in the meantime.

100 Metallica Song Title Free Verse Poem

0

Just for fun, I thought I would take 100 Metallica song titles and try to organize them in a way that somewhat made sense to me and create a free verse poem.

I had fun creating it and look forward to doing more. If you have any suggestions for bands or artists that I should try, let me know in the comments below. Thanks for Watching!
