Welcome to Vermont. And that state of Vermont to be found in that continent of North America is a beautiful place. Green Mountain. A super cool place I guess. And that junkmobile of a car, complete with a motorcycle in it, to be found in those photos above, well that seems to have gotten everyone on that road trip throughout that state of Vermont and all points in between. Vermont, a place where land is measured in acres versus square feet and backyards are the side of a mountain where everyone seems to live off of in self sufficiency. A land that is farmed. The city versus the country. A place where time stands still, well sort of. And you can see the stars at night, even the milky way, without the lights of the city. And then there are no billboards in Vermont, a relief to the eyes and soul from big city advertising. And it is an oasis, some sort of a botanical garden of paradise, an orchard, an herbal pharmaceopia with just about every herb, fruit and vegetable enough grown on ones land to where one doesn't even have to go to the supermarket for food, for apple trees everywhere, for grapes, greens, tomatoes, plums, poppies, wormwood, morning glories, garlic, onion, squash, echinacea, elderberry, comfrey, milkweed, lavender, valerian, willow trees, willow bark, anise and all herbs growing in the wild, etc. And that Vermont State Fair with those farm animals posted in those photos above and local vendors, the arts and crafts as part of it, that self substaining fair, well that was even more amazing to see. And those lakes, quarries, creeks, caves and waterfalls, well they were even more awesome to see. And as the world seems as if it is crashing down all around me, I am not sure what else there is to say about that state of Vermont and those photos that find themselves posted above in my web 2.0 social media user generated content internetaholicness attempt to maintain content for this blog and my other blog whenever blaghers block possible. Except that what's up with those guns that Walmart sells in its stores there? Occupy the NRA. Have a great road trip vacation day and more.

Vanishing New Jersey

And I have heard it said that the only thing constant is change. And some stories do not end as you expect. And in between blaghing about all things #KaliefBrowder, #SandraBland, Black Lives MatterOccupy Wall Street and beyond, and with that Google page rank update still sending me in search of a fifth full time job for when that get rich internet quick does not get rich internet quick. This blog post happens to be one of those off the wall, out of the blue, from left field posts, I think, that may have nothing to do with a No Police State, or maybe it does, who knows. This is one of those posts that has to do with real estate, the economy and change, kind of like one of those Vanishing New York posts, only this one is about Things That Aren't There Anymore: Central NJ Edition, or at least things that won't be there in the coming months, Northern New Jersey Edition. And does this mean that you've become one of those New Jersey people when you start blaghing about all things New Jersey. And I have always thought that when one crosses that New York, New Jersey interstate line, that it becomes a completely different commuter world, seemingly for generations to come. And so word on the street is that Food Basics in New Jersey, and also that Chase Bank next door to it in that New Jersey Plaza are closing in the coming months. And what's up with that "For more information on A&P Stores sales and bankruptcy" statement to be found on that Food Basics website I am not exactly sure, though this impending closing news wouldn't be such news to me if I didn't find myself passing by these places every so often. And from what I hear, this Food Basics lot, used to be Two Guys Department Stores years ago. Do you remember when? And then there is that The shemittah and financial collapse article that has something to do with releasing of debts every seven years, and blood moons, that in my paranoia conspiracy theories has me wondering if this is the beginning of another economic collapse, not since that mortgage meltdown a few years ago, doomsday, the beginning of the end, again, or something like that. And when the stores all around you start to close, you start to wonder if this shemittah and financial collapse stuff is true. Are stores starting to close worldwide, nationwide? And what will become of these places when they close, another chain store, another strip mall, condos, abandoned? Are these changes reflected across the nation? Is this just another story of gentrification, white flight, no not white flight..., genocide, a war zone, blight, urban renewal? And what else is there to say about this real estate situation that has not already been said in this kind of real estate situation time. Have a great impending development, impending shemittah and changing times day.

A No Police State Song

And I have blaghed about that No Police State thing on this blagh before in times past. So much that I thought to repost that No Police State Song on this blog again. And it's that time of year again when that TOMPKINS SQUARE PARK (POLICE) RIOT 27TH ANNIVERSARY SHOWS! that I have found myself singing that No Police State song at in times past comes up again in that city of New York, in that neighborhood of the Lower East Side, now called the East Village for real estate marketing purposes, maybe. And this time this years reunion concert is to be accompanied by a Tompkins Square Park Campout - Camp New York Post, according to those Facebook events I came across in Facebookland. Squat the world. Occupy Wall Street Worldwide. No one is free when others are oppressed. Is another world possible. And what, if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State.

No Police State

The place was martiallawville two thousand and one
and everywhere I looked I saw people with guns
standing on the corner in uniforms
full of torture devices for if you stray from the norm
they'll stop you over here and they'll stop you over there 
they'll stop you anywhere and they won't even care
as they shake you down and throw you on the ground 
put their foot on you and then kick you around 
they'll punch you and they'll beat you till you're almost dead
I couldn't take it no more and so I said
No Police State. yeah, that's right, no policy state. 
I screamed No Police State. No Police State. 

And so, I left the street and then I went to the store 
but as I walked through the metal detector
I could not get through because this man at the door
in a uniform called security 
with a criminal record worser than you and me
he took my bags and my belongings too
and he said the words we are surveilling you
with plain clothes spies and close circuit cameras
inspection devices and ten way mirrors
and so I started shopping from aisle to aisle
but I could hear them all the while
they murmured, they whispered and then they said
come with us your time is at hand
to be mocked, scourged, tried, tempted and afflicted
and crucified and persecuted in this wilderness 
I said to them deliver me I did not do a thing 
they said I did and that was it and so I screamed
No Police State. yeah, that's right, no policy state
I screamed No Police State. No Police State.

And so, I went home and I felt secure
until the evil knocked at my door 
it was a legion of men it was an army 
and they called themselves the authority 
who were concerned for my safety 
so they said to me can we see some ID 
to use against you as you will see
our king he owns the land and he even owns you
so this is what we're gonna do
they trashed my place, they tore it upside down
they took everything and then they threw it around 
then they wanted to put me under their care
cause it looked like I could not take care of my affairs 
so I took no further thought for what I was gonna say
cause they were gonna search and seize me anyway
and so I screamed, No Police State yeah that's right, no policy state
I screamed No Police State. No Police State.
