🔴 Tom & the “Risk-Taking” Gene

 

🔴 Tom Keen and the “Risk-Taking” Gene

 
March 14, 2015
 
There is a genomic marker (SNP) sometimes called “the love gene” (GG variant for SNP rs53576) http://bit.ly/1wniMDR About 40% of Westerners have this variant. When combined with another gene (AA or AG for rs2254298) http://bit.ly/18nPCKM, what results, for males who grew up in non-nurturing early childhood environments, is a higher likelihood that a person will develop psychiatric disorders AND/OR that he will be a risk-taker. Both “genes” or SNPs are located on the Oxytocin molecule. The psychiatric disorders include depression, borderline personality, sociopathy and psychopathy.

🔴 Season Two Review

 

🔴 Review: Season Two of The Blacklist is even

¤ better than Season One

 
March 10, 2015
 
The glue that holds this show together is the mysterious relationship between Elizabeth “Liz” Keen and the enigmatic, irreverent Raymond, “Red” Reddington. The second season is better in many ways than the first. The bad guys are more realistic and the plot lines explore the realm of international politics and important domestic issues. The research into the background of the procedural aspects of the show holds up well, making it “educational TV” for an America naive about matters like neurobiological research, human trafficking, the “down” side of capitalism and the dangers of secret international agendas (electronic surveillance, the various threats to national sovereignty and insidious threats to security) that threaten democracy. Red’s values come into better focus as matters from his past turn out to have national and international implications.

🔴 James Spader as Outsider

 

🔴 James Spader as Outsider

–– Boston Legal to The Blacklist

 
Jan 7, 2015
 
In Boston Legal (ABC, 2004-2008), James Spader played Alan Shore, an often politically incorrect advocate in many cases involving “lost causes” (most of which, in the make-believe world of the Crane, Poole & Schmidt law firm, he actually won). His penchant for clarity and honesty was his weakness & his strength. In perhaps the most memorable episode, he even told “The Court Supreme” exactly what they needed to hear about the death penalty. Even his sexism was funny & endearing because it was – hey! – sincere. During the Bush years, Alan Shore’s truth-telling buoyed many a despondent liberal in the face of what Stephen Colbert dubbed “Truthiness”.

🔴 Forget Bloodlines

 

🔴 ‘Conspiracies’? Okay – But Forget Bloodlines

 
Dec 8, 2014
 
As far as I know there is no national board or government agency tasked with deciding what is or is not a “conspiracy theory,” and since this blog is about The Blacklist, not Frontline, ideas are considered “on the merits.” Stupid stuff is thrown out, the rest posted for comment. I note that I’ve been called a conspiracy theorist for 1) saying state capitalism – as in Russia & China – does not welcome the open Internet, and 2) that the TPP trade deal is corporate-friendly and could weaken state sovereignty (companies can sue countries). So, I have a soft spot for people accused of harboring non-MSM views.

However, the one “conspiracy theory” I oppose is the notion of “bloodlines.” It makes me want to tear my hair out. There is no such thing as a bloodline that gets passed along through generations of kingship or kinship. This is nothing but the genomic version of primogeniture.

[Hiatus:] PPP’s 2013 Poll on Conspiracy Theories [12/2/2014]

Public Policy Polling published its Conspiracy Theory Poll Results on April 2, 2013 http://bit.ly/1tyyXrR. They found that “28% of voters believe [a] secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian world government, or New World Order. A plurality of Romney voters (38%) believe in the New World Order compared to 35% who don’t.” Looks like The Blacklist has plenty of room for its fanbase to grow!

2:8 Decembrist: State Capitalism & the Internet (11/25/2014)

I rewrote this idea & submitted it to The Blacklist Exposed:
http://www.goldenspiralmedia.com/feedback
They are soliciting ideas on where The Blacklist should go. You may have read an earlier version (detail is at the links). I saw the “spoiler” link – it just says they are looking for someone to play one of the alliance guys Fitch mentioned before he exploded. So, this is a bit of a promo, I guess.

FULCRUM: State Capitalism vs the Internet (2)

Link to Part 1: State Capitalism vs the Internet
 
The Fulcrum (possibly an acronym) could involve a Master Plan for world domination, already in play, including a list of people embedded at high levels in national governments (like Fitch). It could spoil the plan if revealed. (Maybe Hillary Clinton is behind it – lol!)⋙ The theory is based on the fact that the World Wide Web went live on December 25, 1990 [the day after Reddington disappeared].Earlier in 1990, the Internet was put into the public sphere by the Defense Department, which had developed it. There must have been grumbling about this.
