Now is the Time. The Time is Now.

The Time Times is an informal blog that will be addressing the infuriating injustices plaguing our country and the rest of the world. We at The Time Times believe we are living in a period of great change, possibly for the better and very possibly for the worse. We can no longer sit around and merely complain, our grievances falling upon deaf ears, our frustrations ignored by blind eyes, and our grim reality dismissed by censored minds. We believe we can fight this revolution with knowledge, passion, tenacity, legal direct action, open hearts and compassion. Our purpose is to create awareness and encourage active involvement in the issues that are important to you. Please join us. We must set aside our differences. Politics are a distraction, bearing no fruit for the people because it is all a lie, a sick soap opera put on by crooks, thieves, liars, manipulators, bigots, womanizers, and the heartless. Right and left is merely an illusion of choice. It is US against THEM. Here at The Time Times, we loathe all politicians equally.
Allow yourself to read, hear and see things that you will not like, things that are incredible and insane and awful and unbelievable. We have been programmed to be skeptical, a useful trait, but when the skepticism becomes so extreme that it leads to an unwillingness to look at truth, and a vile disdain for, and ridiculing of, those who dare to bring such issues to attention, it is a problem, a perversion of the healthy idea of skepticism.
We will never attempt to deceive you. Life is crazy enough; we do not need to twist the truth to create sensational blog posts. We will do our best to report only truth. If we are exploring scenarios or possible future events that cannot be proven as fact, we will always make it clear that it is personal opinion and musings. However, all such musings will be influenced by facts we have learned, and not just exciting conspiracy theories.
I remember last year having a moment of clarity, something I had realized in the past but forgotten: Those who are ‘insane” enough to question the narrative we are fed, to face the mind-blowing, often unpleasant realities of our current and future existence, are really the sane ones, the realists, the bold and courageous, the wise.
Go Insane, The Doors
Once I had a little game
I liked to crawl back in my brain
I think you know the game I mean
I mean the game called ‘go insane’
Now you should try this little game
Just close your eyes forget your name
Forget the world, forget the people
And we’ll erect a different steeple.
This little game is fun to do.
Just close your eyes, i’m going too.
And I’m right here, no way to lose
Release control, we’re breaking through
“Let people tell you what you’re gonna do.
Let people push you around.
How long do you think its gonna last?
How long are you gonna let it go on?
How long are you gonna let them push you around.
Maybe you love it.
Maybe you like being pushed around.
Maybe you love getting your face stuck in the shit…..
You’re all a bunch of slaves.
Bunch of slaves.
Letting everybody push you around.
What are you gonna do about it?
What are you gonna do about it…
What are you gonna do?!”
