secret-societiesSo I decided to look a little longer look at the original Knights Templar and another group named the Cathars. The Templar’s were soldiers of the church until the end of the Crusades and the loss of the Holy Land. It was at that time that the French king Phillip IV who was deeply in Debt to the Templar’s decided to discredit them and then after threatening Pope Clement with his army got him to dissolve the Templar’s. There is no evidence of them being involved in witch craft or having possessed the Holy Grail. The same situation revolved around the Cathars with the church responsible for several massacres of them. There is some credence to the story of the Templar’s having religious artifacts such as the Shroud of Turin. But when the Shroud was last Carbon dated it seemed to disprove this. It is known that both the groups did amass great wealth a large part of which has not been recovered. The Holy Grail largely reported to be the Chalice that Jesus drank from at his last supper has never been confirmed to have existed by the Catholic Church. There are however some who believe that the Grail is not an artifact but rather a source of knowledge either of the human mind or perhaps the secrets of Alchemy. Either way movies have been made stories told expedition launched all in search of the mystical Grail. This Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin,Colombia.

secret-societiesAnother Monday is upon us and Fats has been reading mysteries involving the occult and the premise of a government within a government. Now that might sound a little farfetched but think about it. Look at all the secret societies that have been around for hundreds of years. For instance Skull and Bones the famous Yale university society that little George Bush belonged to. It might explain how someone who had failed at just about everything he did, got to be President of the US. Then we have the Free Masons who have been linked to governments since the 1700’s. The Illuminati whose symbol the pyramid appears on our money tis is one group that doesn’t believe in any supreme being. We know about the Knights Templar but the modern version but have no tie to the past and are more involved in Lutheranism then Catholicism. The last one I have for today are the Jesuits of which the current Pope is the first to be elected to that office they are sometimes referred to as Gods soldiers and the Popes Secret Service. They are considered by some because of their locations all over the world to be the greatest intelligence agency in the world. The Masons and others have long been accused of having undue influence in our government. Some believe this is why Goldman Sachs is considered to have more control of the government than the people who elected it. OH and Goldman Sachs were around when this country was formed. Don’t you just love the way I start of the week? Just look at it this way it could get better (LOL). This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin Colombia

140913185502-henning-isis-large-169Well it’s another Monday and the bat shit crazy group of radicals called ISIS killed 25 Egyptians and now most of the Arab world is bombing the shit out of these people. And then you got a couple of Taliban wackos shooting up a Masque in Pakistan. I guess they thought it would be a good idea to piss off some more people. I have a lot of trouble with people that think the way to get people on your side is to go around and kill a few. That hasn’t worked in any decade that I’ve looked at. All it does is piss people who might have been on the fence about you into deciding you got to go. I understand the subjugating people by force meaning like how the old communist regimes use to suppress free speech and opposition with force. But even they didn’t go around and do mass beheadings of innocent people even though there are stories about people disappearing and never being heard from again. But that shit still comes back to haunt you as is evidenced by the fall of communism. I just don’t know where these wacko groups get their volunteers from unless there are a lot of closet mass murders hanging around out there. Well that was a depressing start to the week and now I’m going go back to bed and have nightmares. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

rWell fats finally finished his fourth book the second in the Samuel S. Sampson thriller series and got it to amazon. It’s now available for purchase along with his other titles. It took him longer than usual to get this book done. I asked him about it and he said, well there was vacation and some other things that popped up that slowed the process. Well you know I wasn’t going to let him get away with just saying other things. He finally relented and told me he had gotten some criticism that made him think he was just wasting his time but after he came back from his vacation he just said fuck it he didn’t care writing made him happy so he was going to keep going. I have to say I’m glad because having him sit around and do nothing is a real drag. I mean I have to try and entertain him during my siesta time. Anyhow the book is out there it deals with a missing child and some crazy rich people it’s titled A CHILD GONE MISSING. You can get it as an E book for Kindle or if you don’t have a Kindle you can get a free app from Amazon. It’s also out there on and in print at and If you get a copy he would like you to review it at amazon you don’t have to write a great one it’s just to show amazon that there’s some interest in the book. Well that’s all I got today so this is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

logoYou know those of you that have followed this blog that I believe in the death penalty as punishment that befits the crime. That is very apparent lately especially down here in Colombia where there is no jury trials and no death penalty. You might say that having no death penalty without jury trails is a good thing. Well maybe not judges are a lot easier to bribe then juries. I’ve seen murder suspects go into court smiling and get 25 years for killing someone during a crime. Just recently a famous member of Pablo Escobar’s Medellin Cartel was released from prison he had made deals here and the US his nick name was Popeye and is believed to be personally responsible for as many as hundreds of deaths. In the US if you convict someone and condemn them to death they get to sit in a cell watch TV be fed etc for up to 16 years while they appeal. Now an average criminal casts the taxpayers around 138,000 dollars a year to keep in prison. They sometimes end up living better than their victims. Why have I brought this up again well there are two case down here that in my opinion warrant torture as punishment. First we have the case of four kids shot to death in order to force the family off their farm and unfortunately the parents and family have abandoned the farm. So it would appear that the kids died for nothing. Now I believe that when these killers are caught they should get to live that rest of their lives in a jail that the people of Colombia have to pay for. Instead I am in favor of a slow painful death for these people as a punishment befitting the crime. The next case is the discovery of a dismembered child again jail is not a befitting punishment for these criminals. Now I know you’re going to say that there’s always a chance the person is innocent. Well I’m willing to take that chance in both of these cases. The moral activists out there that say jail is the only way should look at the percentage of repeat offenders in jail. It doesn’t work and either does butting a serial killer in a mental institution. Now I know this will star some nasty debates and I hope just like I hope a good cop will find the killers down here and make sure they get what they deserve.

GoodOldDaysHere’s one for you I’m 69 years old that’s the age where we start to talk about the good old days. So I started thinking are they good old days? Well something’s were better than and something’s are the same now. I think the fact that my didn’t have to work and was there every day after school for me is a better thing. I think that my father not having to work late or Saturdays was a good thing. I’m no t a fan of the cell phone now a day’s too many parents use it as a form of babysitting. I decided to look at kid then and now. When I was a kid rock and roll music was just beginning and my parents hated it and we hated there big band music. Today some like our old rock and roll just like some of us liked our parent’s music as well as our rock and roll. I’m really not of rap at least not when it’s performed, some of it reads good though. It was nice back then to able to walk your girl to the movie without worrying about getting mugged or shot and when you wanted to talk to somebody you did it face to face. You didn’t have to worry about being out on a date and have somebody call you about work or something dumb. I don’t think everything back then was better and I know kids today won’t think so (you had to live it) but we did seem to care more about each other back then.

images This post deal with a recent Rolling stone article about the politicians that plan on undoing all the President has done. I’m going to start with a democrat because I don’t want my Republican friends to stop reading after the first line or so. His name is Joe Manchin he comes from West Virginia support the Keystone Pipeline and anything that will reduce restrictions on the use of coal. Some people believe his motivation is be governor of West Virginia again. Now we get to the Republicans first up is Paul Ryan. Now he wants to screw with Social Security which you know is pissing me off he wants to turn Medicare into a voucher program degrease corporate taxes and roll back cost of living increases in Social Security well the last increase amounted to 22 dollars and change and was used up by increases in ATM fees down here in Colombia. I guess if your 70 years old and not a politician and you rely on SS for your income you better start reading the classifieds. Of course politicians don’t have to worry about that. Tom Price is another one who wants to cut SS and it’s believed that the President will go along with this shit. Jeb Hensarling is another gem. He want to remove all the consumer protection the administration placed on the too big to fail banks. He’ll use riders on bills that have to be passed. This is a common practice of both parties when they want to look like they’re doing something good while the stick it up your ass. Next we Steve King he the immigration guy want to real or block all of Obama’s immigration reforms. And then there’s Andy Harris he want to recriminalize pot again using riders he must have a way of making money off Jail or organized crime doesn’t want pot legal. Now this guy is a real beauty James Inhofe this guy wrote a book in 2012 entitled The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future. Now just about every scientist in the world will tell you the Climate is screwed up and we better do something about it soon. But this guy, with his head in the sand says Bull Shit and wants to repeal most of the environmental laws on the books. Last but not least John McCain he wants ground troops back in Iraq and the Far East to fight ISIS. First he should study history those asshole over there have been fighting each other and anybody else they can find since before Jesus. Well if you want some indigestion read the Rolling Stone article if you’re a diehard republican with a closed mind don’t bother you’ll just think it’s a pile of lies. But if you’re an American worried about your future and the future of your country I highly recommend it. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
