Dear Google, Please don't Censor the Enigma,because of the Art or the Ladies...



( In the Title I said the Art, but I guess I could also be Censored for heatedass subjects like Katrina&Bushwacking or some of my foul language...god forbid.. hide the children...)

So over the weekend I told a friend of a friend to go to Watergate Summer, told them to check the Google Results for some old features ( ie.Red Trucks & Watery Lies, Miracles in the Deep End, Gifts From Iraq: Walking Wounded and Road Kill). I told them that they just had to hit "Google" and then check the Results, that there were about 14 pages of them, enjoy. Well, at the time I was very much mistakened.

When they would google Watergate Summer, ALL that they found was one lonely title and one sample page, with a disclaimer on it saying google did not support or represent the work therein. HUH? WHAT the? ( I saved all of these pages obviously). So the friend let me know these"results", and How ALL Result pages were gone...So I followed up on this Missing Page Mystery, and it was indeed true. So I wrote to Google, in no Uncertain Terms I let them KNOW that I was Not Happy being CENSORED . I let them know I blog for FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND EXPRESSION. I Blog because I am an American Woman and WE still have a CONSTITUTION and this is still OUR Country.

PINUP GIRLS ARE PATRIOTIC.....

Now I also let them know that I think I might have been Censored by them because I post WOMEN, Lush Sensual Powerful Paintings of beautiful Women ( mostly Redheads) by Alberto Vargas, (Varga Girls) and also Lord Leighton. These men appreciated Beautiful Women, even the redheads. ( and yes, as a Redhead I am indeed grateful to these men for seeing us, as luscious). Now I have One Reason WHY I post These Women. When Ashcroft came to DC and Covered the Breasts of the Sisters of Justice, I made a commitment to always have Women on my blog that represented What he hated and feared most. Raw Real and Powerful. You won't find women on this blog Ever in starched collared shirts baking cakes and scrubbing toilets. NO. And Why? because that is what this Regime wants, women cleaning and cooking and SILENT and OBEDIENT to men and NOT reading or talking about WHAT matters.So on my Desktop I have a File called AssCroft's Nightmare, and I have been collecting beautiful women, solely for Watergate Summer. And yes, they do indeed grace the Blog-alot. I am proud of these women. In Spirit I am one of them.

NOW Reason Two, why I post these Women. The Pinup Girls have a Very patriotic history dating back to WWII. There were many Great Pinup artists (Armstrong,Runci, and more), but Vargas is indeed my favorite. Alberto Vargas painted most of these women in the 1940's he painted them to remember WHO the Real Women were, and he created them for Esquire magazine, they were called the Varga Girls.They became calendar girls and legends. The redhead Jeanne was one of his favorite models, and he painted her quite a bit.( Anna Mae his wife may have been a model too). Now the men and boys were overseas, and the Varga Girls became a Wonderful source of Inspiration and Morale. ( you can Google Varga or Vargas girls- they were listed as both). They became favored Pinup Girls, next to pictures of mom and girlfriends, it was not uncommon to find them in barrack walls or fighter planes. They also became favorites at Home where Women were fighting , by working the Men jobs at home and manning the shifts at factories. Vargas wanted people to see their Beauty and their Power. And yes, his vision of Women did indeed inspire our fighting men so much they are in the War Archives and military annals. Now I also have to admit that since I have a number of male readers and VETS I think that I am doing the right thing remembering Morale. Maybe that is Lovemongering of me, but so be it.( Better than the hatemongering,fearmongering, and terramongering crapola we are fed daily from all sides). I want Men and Women to feel good about themselves again and about their sensual sides, no more of this religous puritian crap. I want them to remember to feel Powerful in WHO they are, man or woman.

ENIGMA's EPILOGUE TO THE GOOGLE SAGA & The "Results":
So I wrote to Google and I also wrote to Keith Olbermann, and I sent both copies of letters I had sent the others about my feelings on Censorship and WHY I thought I was being censored. And 30 hours later Voila, MOST of the RESULT pages had been returned ( almost all) and Number 2 for Google results was my post "THANK YOU KEITH OLBERMANN". ( I am sure That is just Some Kind Fateful Coincidence.)So I am very very grateful to Google for repairing the ERROR and I guess maybe again for some reason I am ever grateful to Keith Olbermann.Keith Dinner is on me if you ever come to Cleveland.

This is what you do Enigma!

enigma4ever said...

Larry you made me do a double take...thanks_ I understood what you meant...

Granny: actually GOOD FOR US-ALL of us, well, esp women...

Peacechick...yup...

Okay my EX has wisely pointed out that it might not be the Lovelies...it might be the NAME of my blog that is a TOTAL problem- cuz Watergate and mere mention of it probally is causing these folks to stock up on mylanta....hmmm, never thought of that ...

betmo said...

activism at its finest.

Enigma:

I had to look twice at that quote also before I copied it.

It was worth the second look.

enigma4ever said...

Larry: for a minute there I thought you meant that I was someone who accepted evil...gave me a small stroke...but then I reread it and I assumed you meant that I was not THAT.....

Enigma4Ever you said
"These men appreciated Beautiful Women, even the redheads. ( and yes, as a Redhead I am indeed grateful to these men for seeing us, as luscious)."


I, too, am one of those individuals who appreciates (<--this is the most perfect choice of words) the beauty, the flavor, the “Raw, real and powerful”ness and, indeed, the quality of being (again, this is the most perfect choice of words-->) luscious. I have a feeling that Beautiful Redheads and their ability to “indeed inspire ... fighting men so much” goes waaay back...


You also say “I am proud of these women. In Spirit I am one of them.”


I say that you are, in Truth, so Much more than merely in Spirit, one of them... you are a flesh and blood real Muse*... an inspiration for our journey and trials, and activism far beyond your modesty's allowances.

Oh my ....I am indeed a blushing Enigma now...Ball of Light you have outdone yourself....my oh my...

( hmmm, apparently I just need to find a beautiful Horse at this point???....yup the Steed she rode in on.....and here I sit on my porch in pj's eating ice cream....very undignified...)

whlep I was just trying to explain a little patriotic moment and well...now...sheeesh...

thank you again...ball of light.

aballoflight said...

lol... you are welcome you ice cream bhodisattva


hehehe... outdone myself? nah, i've hardly gotten started ;)

i got to thinking about the year of the Watergate summer (73) and the horse we used to have before our last move... His name was "Image of a Legend", a beautiful thorobred whom we got after he'd run his last track race and had been penned up for three years.

It took us another two years of gentleness and love and patience before he got over his distrust of people and resocialized with our other two horses to the point that he was a joy to ride... oh, and he was a descendant of Secretariat...

Since you're eating ice cream in yer pj's, I didn't think cinnamon buns would go well & UPS said they don't deliver live animals, much less horses & i couldn't remember the name of the other outfit... but i did pick a couple of winners that would be just PERFECT for you...

& something nice to listen to while riding...


Namaste

I hope it's kinda like what Mark Twain said when Huckleberry fin was banned:
"that should increase sales by 25%."

Hope you get more traffic.

No said...

Oh, Enigma, I hope you don't mind, but I would love to put up this pic on my blog....is it your own pice of artwork, you Goddess?

enigma4ever said...

NO...you are welcome to the painting- this is by Alberto Vargas, it is on the web in different sizes, and is one of the ones from WWII, and this is Jeane- his favorite redhead, used in many paintings and calendars....she usually has her face covered- this is one of the few that you see her face. ( she is also down below from last week's post).

Aaron: Thanks, I hope it does help people find their way here...

Balloflight: wow..more goodies our way. Horses...I know a little about horses, a while ago I used to work at a Stable cleaning stalls, feeding and general care and doing Tellington Touch on stressed horses, so that my son could learn how to ride....Thank you for reminding me of a story for the blog...and for remembering Horses....they are incredible beings....wise, intuitive and beautiful.
Legend of an Image is beautiful name, but I bet you gave the beauty another name...You have beautiful taste in art...thank you for sharing...and music....

enigma4ever said...

BTW Enigma Cafe folks....up above Ball of Light posted some beautiful art...some is from a wonderful gallery- Heinzel Gallery, google it- is really a wonderful gallery....heaven.

eProf2 said...

Your fighting spirit is an inspiration to many. The battle with Google, who today hired one of the neo-cons for publicity, is a great story, one that I would hope KO would feature as one of his worst persons (corporations) nominees.

aballoflight said...

Thank you Enigma4Ever, for your kind words to me... and for all the rest of the amazing words from your heart... they make a profound impact!

& no, we usually just called him Image. or bigguy or buddy. What ever came to mind, depending on the speed we were travelling. This is a dog, a horse & a cowboy: Shakti & Image & aBallofLight"

If you can't go for a horse ride, go for an old ('49), blue car ride! This may be the one you were remembering hearing...

In fact, take a drive on this road: Lake Shore Drive...

Namaste

enigma4ever said...

Ball of Light: well...here you are again....with horse and dog ( is this really you ? ) ...Shakti is indeed a very beautiful name for a horse....( Dog is ? )....okay so you are Western Man, a Cowboy? who has been to Scotland, who knows art and music, wow, you are full of mysteries.....you can stay as long as you want at the Enigma Cafe ( I have to say that the Gustav Klimt painting does not resemble me at all ( I hope)...she is a little scary...intimidating for sure ?) and you found the 49' mercury song that has been banging about in my head...now if we can just find the bluesy guitar version....cuz I KNOW it is out there..somewhere...and you even brought the Lake Shore Drive song- I will show to Diva ( it is one of her favs..)Thanks for bringing such goodies and wonders...Namaste to you ....

Prof: and yup today the Keith Story has been pulled from the no2 position...who knows...thanks for your kind words...I really appreciate it...

Namaste

enigma4ever said...
