I am not one to wax very much on the political side, in fact if anything I will site ant-politics rhetoric before stating the obvious which is we as Americans are fortunate to have the freedoms we do and the thought of freedoms we actually don’t. So here we find ourselves in the dawn of the latest presidential elections and go figure the nations up in arms and finger pointing and hate, stupid shit falls all around us. This doesn’t surprise me as the Propaganda machine (news, polls,policing,etc) that is the govts feeding tube of the not capable to think for themselves, question and take proactive stances (ie the sheep) has been full throttle more so than usual since the candidate race took full swing.
I nearly posted a blog piece on this and damn now have to say again “Accountability must Be now” first as individuals and then as a social conscious aimed and demanding those appointed to serve/protect and govern this nation do so sweepingly. Thus restoring faith and credit in the system at current falling apart. So let us just hang on accountability on the social tier and in the coming paragraph find the reason we are faced with what’s to come and why the state of action by finger pointers, etc..etc is erroneously false and exactly what the system wants.
We are not in voting for President actually voting for said candidate. You may thank the electoral college which was conceived in the 1700’s to 1: make sure the incapable population didn’t muck elections via uneducated votes and 2; allow smaller states a sway against larger populated ones. Now changes have been made over time to allow modern civilization a prevalent pull yet your vote actually delegates the electoral trustees for said state to vote on it’s behalf. Many states have amended ind. Constitutions to require the “:popular” or majority vote be upheld, yet faithless ballots have been cast and again we have seen the majority lose.
Why has it lost and what’s to the “why vote it doesn’t matter” ideology. Well thats a redundancy in itself now huh?! 90 million less voters turned out this Presidential election then 2012. Larger states get more electoral votes due to appointed political representatives. So even though the democratic vote pulled more, it did no such thing in the larger states.
The short and blunt is, People have stopped giving two shits, are allowing the system as now spun by the powers that be, whom dont hold a national voice as we are to goddamn divided and indifferent to be a nation for a people by a people. Society is shattered into sects of classicism, race, sexual orientation, religion etc. etc and the man has been fueling the firs in which the blinders just feed it. You wanna take a stance you want to make a difference? Start in the mirror then start in your neighborhood, use social media for launching positive informative relations, worthy debate that has no venom but seeks to address and inform.
Humanity and civilized social growth is in our own hands, if we dont grab the reigns it will be in theirs and this world has had enough tragedy to sink a million souls ten fold..Be a part of change, solution and growth or get back in a hole and bid your time.

Crazy shit man I’m a far better, aware and calm driver when high! Some people are stupid but punish everyone? Marijuana has been egregiously slandered since the lumber company realized hemp was far more efficient, cheaper and abundant. (without damaging the environment) Then came the drug comp..etc etc,,,
Article snippets on state laws for under pot influenced driving, testing blood levels:
That makes no sense, said Mark A. R. Kleiman, a New York University professor specializing in issues involving drugs and criminal policy. “A law against driving with THC in your bloodstream is not a law you can know you are obeying except by never smoking marijuana or never driving,” he said.
Studies show that using marijuana and driving roughly doubles the risk of a crash, Kleiman said. By comparison, talking on a hands-free cellphone while driving – legal in all states – quadruples crash risk, he said. A blood alcohol content of .12, which is about the median amount in drunken driving cases, increases crash risk by about 15 times, he said.
Driving with “a noisy child in the back of the car” is about as dangerous as using marijuana and driving, Kleiman said.
I put this together months ago and not going to even read it or edit as its simple Green is go, alcohol should be illegal and smoke legal, some people shouldnt do any substance, for many its a great help….if your a dumb ass and get high and can’t drive then u go to jail or crash, hopefully not harming anyone but yourself and die(some people deserve too) or go to jail get nixed from weed and driving. It’s not rocket science its not inebriation like booze and people need to be responsible and accountable.
I do strongly agree the course at the time I saw this article states were opting is fucked and not responsible,,lead wise and the mass will follow or play along to keep the shit quelled. Plus next time I’m fiding the article on the Senators/lawmakers who are stoic in stance that Shoplifting from Wal-mart be a minor infracture, its true they are a continuing and major player in the working class being fucked in America…..Sam Walton is rolling people..

So whats new with the Spital…..you shouldn’t ask it’s not for the squeamish…
Lots of Emphatic Regressions, transgression, rise-fall and spoken Spyt!!!
New Links and friends to share..here’s the quick and lowdown:
https://plus.google.com /Sinisterspital yeah something as such
https://soundcloud.com/stream sinisterspital thats right spoken shit now going up
still on Facebook and Allpoetry, book still for sale…doing a lot of podcast reads…slowly approaching a web page and no closer to sane my work has taken on even more arduous tasking and Dribbles like molasses even more…but shits raw…pc still crap so i avoid posting much its painful…HINT send Spital old laptop 😛
for now i take leave indulge in loathsome debauchery…peace
Last week I was fortunate to have an interview with my friend and new pod-cast host
Purple Chaos of Late Night Poets radio from all poetry on my book and workings of the Dribble I create. Truly grateful for the opportunity and recognition, I must apologize for the late posting. It was a truly fun and enlightening hour in which I delved into my first book and exposed some intricacy of the motoring which fuels and made me. I will add link to show and invite all to check out the line up of Late Night Poets on blogtalkradio.com. as they have a variety of hosts and topics to indulge in.. Their link:
http://www.blogtalkradio.com/latenightpoets assembled and directed by Fillmyeyes, they can also be found on wordpress and facebook
The link to show, if checked out please let me know what you thought. I have been doing a lot of readings on podcasts and am contemplating voiced readings with each poem on the upcoming website as well as youtube or sound cloud channel.
So when relevance to existence becomes query, or defeat in integrities bosom rails..maybe loss in objective reasoning for creating your art.. whats to become?
Repetitive conundrums all face but it’s whats on my scrambled mental sequence so that’s that.
How to off-set the inevitable is simple to some and then again for those like me with bi-polar etc etc it seems to be overly systematic and dauntingly tiresome. Actually I often find it offensive that with all the tools I am equipped with that I trifle in such folly. It’s like being in the ocean and screaming because there’s waves. Fucking insane isn’t it?
So when I’m at such crossroads and the obvious fails me because I want to waller and whine like a Over-Rated Debutante or swiftly find the ends that never equal the means, I must redesign pull-through. I am unable to write out the chaos and drugs fail miserably at solace. (long ago quit drinking) What direction does this chaotic liaison embark upon?
Rediscover lost outlets! I need to draw again, exactly what my Insanities Solarium is missing. Crayons on the left meds on the right kind of expulsion of deviant meanderings better to be fed in confinement as to tame the lashings out that will follow. I’m about hell bent out lately and it’s merciless child’s play one should be ashamed to admit..It’s a stigma of mine I wear like the Scarlett letter.
I try not deny any of my quips, short falls or egregious errors as it with the good are what makes Spital so Sinister and abundantly I. So there’s a point here I get it did you? Well it’s my party but hopefully everyone always leaves with a present…Till next Dribble falls about….I’ll leave you with a poem I’ve had wrapped up…
Golden Lotus prophecies exalted,
culling the black of transistors broken.
Lost in snowing portals of diverse antennas,
eastern the sun sets void of natural rules.
Elicit good behavior from dawns derelict quarters,
crystal spheres reflecting hop-scotch containers.
Tonality regurgitates rotting appendages sutured,
poisons dyslexic conversation, resonates the ides.
Twilight illuminates ashed lumber in cannabis hues,
defecating catastrophes, orchestrated in inaugural speech.
Edified the polarized tone-deaf from political confessions,
swirling porcelain, swallowed yellow eulogies are flushed.
Relevance summons diversity in numeric quakes,
liberating panties this blood quieted and opaque.
Deafly obliterates why there’s flagrant transgressions,
forced in steamy subways depicting analytical discretion.
