A Horse With No Name

Starbucks Atlantic Terminal, May 2017

May 12, 2017, 4:15pm.  It’s very festive here at Starbucks.  Club music, dance music, is playing on the sound system. It’s packed in here, almost non-stop, groups of people, mostly “the next generation”:  high school students.  (Mostly Asian high school students; in one aspect, Asian “next generation are the focus. cc all Mormon barristers)  Party time began at around 3:30pm.  When one group leaves, another group arrives.  I asked an Asian female high school student (probably Brooklyn Tech) if I could take a picture of her black cap engraved the word DOPE and she said yes however somehow or other the picture was deleted from my camera. (cc all Mormon barristers!)  The manager and two or three other baristas are each wearing “flower child/flower power” wreaths, sort of like Chiara de Blasio’s that her father gave her.


Flower power was a slogan used during the late 1960s and early 1970s as a symbol of passive resistance and non-violence ideology.[1] It is rooted in the opposition movement to the Vietnam War.[2]The expression was coined by the American beat poet Allen Ginsberg in 1965 as a means to transform war protests into peaceful affirmative spectacles.[3][4][5] Hippies embraced the symbolism by dressing in clothing with embroidered flowers and vibrant colors, wearing flowers in their hair, and distributing flowers to the public, becoming known as flower children.[6] The term later became generalized as a modern reference to the hippie movement and the so-called counterculture of drugs, psychedelic music, psychedelic art and social permissiveness.[7]

Today, Friday, May 12, 2017, three or four baristas here in Starbucks Atlantic Terminal are wearing “flower child/flower power” wreaths similar to this “flower child/flower power” wreath:

“flower of joy”
Heroin’s long journey to America’s streets begins with the planting of the seed of an opium poppy. 



“A Horse with No Name” is a song written by Dewey Bunnell, and originally recorded by the soft rock band America. It was the band’s first and most successful single, released in late-1971 in Europe and early-1972 in the US, and topped the charts in several countries.[2] It was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.[3]
Despite the song being banned by some U.S. radio stations because of supposed drug references to heroin use,[6] the song ascended to number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, and the album quickly reached platinum status. The song charted earlier in the Netherlands (reaching number 11) and the UK (reaching number 3, the band’s only Top 40 hit in the country[7]) than it did in the United States. The interpretation of the song as a drug reference comes from the fact that the word “horse” is a common slang term for heroin.

SF: San Francisco, the Mormon Church of Satan’s/CIA’s Haight/Ashbury “summer of love” experiment; probably more “pot” and LSD (Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds) than heroin.  Joseph Smith’s mother’s name: Lucy Mack.  I do not yet know what years CIA Mormon “prophet, seer, revelator” David Haight was mayor of Palo Alto.  “Diamond” by Rihanna (“We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky”) played a little after the really big crowds left.  cc all Mormon barristers

Earlier today I asked a Starbucks customer, a young black male, if I could take a picture of his t-shirt.  He was back later this afternoon during party time here at Starbucks Atlantic Terminal. He is now a plaintiff in a legal case against Berkshire Hathaway, Accenture, Bain, Citicorp, Verizon and many other corporations including and most especially the Mormon Church of Satan.  cc all Mormon barristers
