“Illusions” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, first things first ….

The Don gets off !

No impeachment, so, once again it’s, off to the Whitehouse races, for one of the most, polarising leaders of modern history.

Well, as per previous posts, i’m not surprised, due to the fact that, in my view, it’s an illusion to believe that any part of the legal system is truly what it claims to be.

So, this leads me to the rise in right wing movements in Europe, and clearly beyond, in terms of Trumps America !!!

Immigration restrictions increased to limit, Nigerian, Eritrean, Sudanese and Tanzanian Nationals from entering America.

Thus, it’s no surprise that parties like the AfD in Germany, Vox in Spain, and The League in Italy, are making strides towards increasing their followings !

The illusion of separation between parties, has also been exposed in recent years, especially with these, so called liberals.

So, it’s again, no surprise to find that, this week in Germany, Thomas Kemmerich, an apparently Liberal politician, has been found to be benefitting from alliances with right wing groups to gain a share of power, which is no different to the recent coalition between the Liberals and Conservatives in the UK, in recent times, and so on !

So, quickly over to South Africa, to the disturbing news of illegal minors being killed and left in the street, which isn’t so uncommon, as the reports suggest that 60 die EVERY DAY in South Africa, so it’s a big illusion that the new, Post Apartheid South Africa, is really, that much better than the old !

We’re in a time where Democratic Politicians, who apparently, can claim to be the, middle of the road thinkers, are no longer approved of, by their die hard followers, from Corbyn in the UK, to the Democrats in America.

So, there are quite a few illusions in society that are being exposed for what they truly are, like the Phillip Schofield confession to actually being gay, even though building the facade of being a family man with a wife and children, over many years, which just goes to show that, living a lie, isn’t alien to famous people, and the dangerous part of such deceptions, is that when it comes to legal proceedings that involve, royalty, or these incredibly wealthy guys, there are numerous falsehoods and illusions that surround them ….

So, this weeks piece looks into some of these …..

” The System Really Is ” … Written & Performed by Big Virge

Well, after all the pomp and ceremony of the last Royal Wedding, look at where it’s now heading … ?!?

AWAY from the family, off to Canada, and essentially, OUT of the Royal Family !!!

When they say things move fast these days, they really AREN’T Kidding folks, it’s just CRAZY !!!

So, with all due respect, what does Madame Markle have between her legs, that has got poor Harrys head so wrapped up in it, that he’s prepared to denounce his title !!!

Just WOW … !!!!!

Well, at least it looks as though Canada’s costs for keeping them, may have just been resolved, pay for em’ yourselves, would appear to be how things should now go, but only time will tell.

So, swiftly moving on, what a story Dark Water tells folks, it’s my movie recommendation for anyone, who can deal with true stories, that expose the levels of corporate corruption, that affect peoples health and consequently, their lives !!!

It is a movie that opens eyes and minds to the horrific usage of PFAS drugs, one of which is known as PFOA, otherwise known as C8, or what are known as Forever Chemicals, of which it is said that there are OVER 4000 different types !

Dupont, being the company that discovered Teflon,

By Lab ACCIDENT … !!!!!

…. have kept secret, the dangers of chemical compounds used, that were evidently, then dumped into peoples water, in this case, in West Virginia.

However, it has subsequently been found to be contaminating the water in America, and international water supplies, as well as products from clothing, to numerous products that people either place on their skin, or in their bodies.

This is a film about corporate crime, at it’s most deceitful and destructive, all for, what ….

You guessed it ….

MONEY … What a surprise …

NOT !!!!!!!

In these days and times, as people continue to do their do, one has to wonder, how many truly realise the levels of system driven abuses, from those spoke about in my last post, where police are letting children be abused, and then refusing to open up, about their failings, to these incredibly corrupt companies !

DuPont and 3M, being just two, who have knowingly, released poisons into the environment, regardless of the human cost !

Toxins and poisons, that have now been proven to blacken and essentially, rot teeth, to those that cause various cancers that kill human beings !

Livestock deaths, due to the toxins from the waste, being ingested by these animals, and the blatant usage of the leverage of employment, to try to stop communities who have been, and still are victims, from trying to bring these companies to courtrooms, and inevitably, to some degree of justice and punishment.

Their own company, in the case of Dupont especially, has also suffered staff illnesses and deaths, which are of course, allegations they are still trying to deny, even though the lawyer who took up the case, Rob Bilott, is still here today, to tell people his version of the truth, which is indeed, a very dark and disturbing tale of corporate and government deceptions, that have gone on for well over 50 years now, if not longer.

This is an incredible story, and one that may just cause the type of movements, that could cause corporate businesses a lot of problems, if they’ don’t clean up their act, because peoples children and families, are being treated as being expendable, in the pursuit of corporate power !

Rob Bilott has fought Dupont, for over twenty years, and as he says, still hasn’t won, in terms of stopping the usage of these forever chemicals, in basic things that most people use.

Mark Ruffalo and Nathaniel Rich deserve mentions here, firstly Rich, who wrote the article,

“The Lawyer Who Became Dupont’s Worst Nightmare”,

An article which inspired Ruffalo to want to find out more and inevitably, bring the story to screen !

Based on what is exposed in the movie, it’s a must watch for people who give a damn about, more than making money.

Indeed, Mr. Bilott’s book about this is called, ” Exposure “, which would appear to be one, worth a read !

Thus, this weeks piece speaks on the bigger issue here, which is how the system, as it were, really works, or DOESN’T, in this particular case, for the benefit of the masses.

It speaks on how systemic agendas, hang the poorer, average folks, out to DIE, when it fills their pockets, and how people, really are seen as commodities that can be abused, and used, as long as they satisfy their needs !

Corporate bosses, lobbyists, and people deemed to work for the peoples interest, at health organisations, and scientific research groups, who, as Bilott suggests, are all in it together, no matter the weather, or problems they create.

Thus, in broadening the scope of what the system really is ….

This weeks piece speaks on exactly that ….

What EXACTLY,

“Gifted” … Written and Performed by Big Virge

So folks, as the season of gift giving, and good will, is the flavour still …..

Here’s a lil’ lyrical gift for the season from Big Virge

” What Does It REALLY, Mean To You … ?!? ” Written & Performed by Big Virge

So, what does one write about in this world currently eh people ???

Well of course, the political realm has an abundance of disturbing movements, that have quite a few people getting, well …..

…. as irate as people get these days, in some online petition, or in some public display of disrespect, for those who are supposedly, representing their best interests.

Not so much huh folks …..

Donald continues to wage war with himself presumably, which then funnels it’s way down to his minions, and they in turn are turning against the very man who, when they were being paid by and kept in his fold, didn’t seem to have a negative word to say about their President …..

Hmmm, let me move on …………

So of course, here in Bim’, people are awaiting the election that many seem to hope, will remove Good old Freundel, for what, sorry, who … ???

…. who knows …. ???

…. but the corruption discussion never seems to be too far away from Bajan Lips, which leads me those, sinking ships ….

or boats, like The Windrush ….

Uh Hmmm …. Excuse me ….

EMPIRE Windrush’ … !!!!!

…. whose occupants on that famed day of June 22nd, 1948, seem to have been treated as, hmmm, how does the saying go, ” less than being human “, by the Home Office, under Theresa May’s guidance !!!

Now this evening, I heard some interesting rhetoric, via The Beeb’, that showed how mistakes were made, even in the accusations being levelled.

Ol’ JC …. Mr. Corbyn, for those who don’t know, attacked The Prime Minister for being involved in the decision to basically discard the papers of those who needed them, to verify their legitimacy of becoming a fully fledged, British Citizen !!!!

SHOCK HORROR !!!!

The British treating black people like the dirt of the shoes, that they’ve been wearing, as they tread through shit ….. !!!!!

Never …. ???

” No Blacks, No Irish, No Dogs “, signs ….

…. being just one of the things these same migrants, (plus a few stowaways) from the Caribbean, had to face, upon arriving in the, let’s not forget, ” Motherland “, that was to show appreciation for Caribbean Peoples’ loyalty to Her Majesty, etcetera etcetera …

Blah Blah Blah ….

So now people are getting on poor ol’ Theresas’, Bruk’ Down back, give the woman a break, because the apparent truth is that the decision to do this heinous thing, was actually taken under the Labour Government that preceded the Tories …. ???

Huh .. rewind … !!!!!

The Labour, Leftist, Socialist, equality for all, supporters, would sanction such an act ???

NEVER …. !?!

Could this possibly mean that an actual change of national leadership ….

DOESN’T … actually represent change …. ?!?

I hate to say it, but didn’t Donald say something similar in regards to Hilary getting into power …..

One thing people have to admit is that President Trump, has certainly done things differently, even to The Bushes, who lost one of theirs this month.

Well, we live, we die, it is what it is, but I was thinking she deserves some thanks for giving us Jeb and GW, I mean hey, at least she didn’t give us Donald eh ???

It’s just madness, plain and simple, but at the end of this, there are people who have lost jobs, people who are being denied health care in their old age, people being separated from their families, the threat of deportation for others, which has of course, resulted in an apology coming from the beleaguered PM, to Caribbean Leaders.

One of whom being, Jamaica PM, Andrew Holness, who basically, immediately accepted her apology on behalf of Jamaica, saying that he believes, ” The Right Thing is being done at this time ! “.

The less said about that response, the better for me I guess, but it’s all good again, now the mistake … I Repeat …. MISTAKE ….. has been acknowledged, and will be rectified.

I mean, how do you do that though, really ???

Well, i’ll leave you to ponder that …..

Finally, leading to the piece attached to this post, Cuba has finally removed the Castro name from it’s offices of power, well, pushed it to the side, whilst new leader, Miguel Diaz Canel takes charge.

So, what does this mean for Cuba, and in particular it’s US Relations, well, it’s clear that the tight strings that were in place, have already been loosened somewhat by Raul, his predecessor.

However, President Trump is hardly likely to build on what B.O. O’Boomer, started, but who knows ?

He seems very changeable currently, from North Korea to Russia, but the Russia / Syria madness, has brought the old Trumpster’, out to play, along with Theresa May, The French, and anyone else who cares to wage war on Mr. Putin, President Assad, and chemical warfare that has been killing volumes in Syria ….

So ….

Who gave the initial order to use these weapons ?

Are there even, chemical weapons in Syria ? (Humour Me …)

Did The Syrians engineer them ?

Did Russia ?

Should anyone else interfere … ???
… and therein lies the BIG QUESTION ???

This seems to be a civil war, and a revolt against Assad, who seems have to earned the ire of The Brits, which in turn, leads to Trump etcetera etcetera, you get where it’s going ….

Well if you don’t, don’t worry, I think most people who, at least have, a sense of the woes of the world, have just about had their fill of it, and are just focussing on their lives and their loved ones.

Fair enough ….

However, turning a blind eye to these things is unwise in my opinion, because, small as they may be for most, revolutions of all kinds are occurring, just look at Starbucks and Applebies, for ridiculous examples …..

Hardly the type of revolution, that I think the world needs, but hey, it’s a start, so as I finish this post, i’ll leave with this question, as you click play and take a listen ….. think on this ……

In a world so CLEARLY, Corrupted and filled with injustices …..
If you had to start one …..

What Does It REALLY, mean to you ?

Too-ings and Goings …. written by Big Virge 13/02/2017

Yes Yes people ……

So, as I sit here watching horses frolicking with each other, here in Barbados, much has been going on over the last couple of months ….

Well, first and foremostly, my debut album has finally dropped, production from Strat Carter & Anthony Lowhar, and that heavy, vocal lyricism, that is synonymous with the name Big Virge ….

The album is called VIRGES’ WORLD … and is available on an adundance of online platforms, but CD Baby is where it was released first ……

Hip Hop styled, but do not confuse what you hear as being that, nope, this is a SPOKEN WORD Album, just with different paces of speech, it’s Poetry.

So, don’t be dismissing, try and give the ish’ a listen, you might be surprised by what you find resides in this poets mind …..

Fresh, Real, Raw …. and built from my core values of honesty, straight talk, Phat beats, and yes, some offensive lyrics, to those who cannot work with Real Talk…..

….. which leads me to Brexit’ and The Trumpster’……

Well, having just returned from a London trip, I can safely say that Brexit has enforced the British drive to create themselves, a breed of Modern Slave, who clearly are only brave, behind polling cards, that define what resides in their hearts, which would seem to be to conform and follow the political whatevers…. ??? …. who seem to be doing, quite nicely thank you, regardless of what Brexit’ has done to the UK’s economy, and the general way that the country runs.

Movements towards a cashless society, less general dealings with people, and more with computers, and systems driven by technology ……

However, with all this tech, to drive in London, has become the complete opposite of what it once was …. Now you have cameras tracking your every move, 20 mile an hour speed limits, in areas once free for the brave to drive at speed, for fun, or simply to get where you needed to, if your were running a little late ….

Work home work, for most …. chasing that pound, even though it doesn’t get you far, unless you’ve got plenty of them, right about now !!!!!

In the space of a few months, the country has changed dramatically, and as a friend suggested to me, in basically 5 years, the populous of London alone, would seem to have doubled !!!!!

Parking is a complete nightmare, and costs an arm and a leg, with restrictions in place, here, there and everywhere ….. !!!!!

It’s pretty crazy, and looks like being a rough old ride, until this Brexit situation gets resolved !

Mainly because of the apparent cost of being the first to start, what may be a trend of countries exiting, what many claim to be a bureaucratic nightmare, being the EU, and it’s money train of freeloading MP’s & MEP’s, who apparently, have been getting fed like fat cats, for quite some time now !!!!

Figures in the Billions, being thrown around, possibly up to 600 Billion, being touted as the cost for Britain’s departure from the EU !!!

Well, who knows, or really cares …. Brexit’ voters ….. ???

Well, i’d say not, when looking at the basic costs of living in the UK right about now !!!!!

Anyways, it is what it is, but America, well, Donald has started as he suggested he would, creating mayhem, executive orders, that are being revoked by the legal system, and just like England, creating difficulties and concerns for companies, whose employees now, are not sure whether they are coming or going, it’s all good fun ….

Well, maybe not fun, but it certainly is a time of much change and as a friend said to me recently, there is a DISTINCT, change in the wind, and time will definitively tell, where it is, the world is now heading, and if the new US Presidents’ initial movements are anything to go by, the blasé attitudes that many have chosen to exhibit, and live by in recent times, are about to be turned upside down …… or are they ???

Well, Mr. Trump has already seen that he can be stumped by those who surround him, as in, congress, the senate, and the same people who seemed to have given him the job, who, when they rally together, are a force that even he, has to respect and bow to, well so far at least …..

This is all, simple proof of the fact that these Presidents are merely puppets for the world to focus on, while the agendas that have long since been discussed as the next wave of change, are being initiated and mobilised …..

Brexit’ and Trump, are diversions for bigger things to be put into place, in my opinion, like the rise of nationalism, from Europe to the US, and the NOT SO, United, United Kingdom … LMAOL

….. and as I read yesterday, South Africas’ ANC, and rival political factions, like the EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters), are far from finding ways to agree to disagree. There was fighting in the room, as Jacob Zuma attempted to give his, ” State of The Nation ” speech.

Well, how appropriate a title, the, ” State of affairs “, over there, may well be a pre-cursor for much that will occur over the next 18 months or so !!!

Let’s hope not, but hope, like Mr. Obamas … ” Change ” … would seem to have been a ruse, to make people believe that the Political Process, could actually step away from scandal, corruption and war …. and work for the benefit of the masses ….

If Obama did that for you, well, I think you need to wash the sleep out of your eyes and recognise that, as much as we have a larger number of people who are perhaps, less uncomfortable with integration and the rising of one nation, the nationalists like Mr. Trump, and his friends, like Theresa May from the UK, are not about to let that become a trend that will work for Twitter or any other media platform that feeds the masses …..

So indeed, it shall be an interesting 2017, with a great many more ……

Too-ing’s & Goings …….
