"...it's not the training to be mean but the training to be kind that is used to keep us leashed best." ~ Black Dog Red

"In case you haven't recognized the trend: it proceeds action, dissent, speech." ~ davidly, on how wars get done

"...What sort of meager, unerotic existence must a man live to find himself moved to such ecstatic heights by the mundane sniping of a congressional budget fight. The fate of human existence does not hang in the balance. The gods are not arrayed on either side. Poseiden, earth-shaker, has regrettably set his sights on the poor fishermen of northern Japan and not on Washington, D.C. where his ire might do some good--I can think of no better spot for a little wetland reclamation project, if you know what I mean. The fight is neither revolution nor apocalypse; it is hardly even a fight. A lot of apparatchiks are moving a lot of phony numbers with more zeros than a century of soccer scores around, weaving a brittle chrysalis around a gross worm that, some time hence, will emerge, untransformed, still a worm." ~ IOZ

Obliged

Those of us lucky enough to have our births recorded within the borders of the US, France, Germany, Britain and the various bourse capitols of the Western world have an obligation, I think.

A compelling one.

In the same way that Obama can declare that "these terms are not negotiable...and will be enforced," we ought to do the same.

We ought to make our various homelands fucking ungovernable. And then declare all of our terms and demands non-negotiable. All. Of. The.

We are obliged to do so. People are dying in our names. And, listening to Barack fucking Pendragon Obama, right now, the Western powers have decided to cozy up to their Arab League despot clients, and kill thousands more.

Obama is a sadistic bastard. I love the selective humanitarin aspect of all this. Oils well that ends well I always say.

You watch that speech, Rob?

rob payne said...

Hi Jack, no I didn't. I can't watch Obama, I can barely stand to read his speeches which I do with one eye so I don't go cross-eyed and get stuck there.

I did see the part you quoted in an article, that was sickening enough. Arrogant, completely.

Jack Crow said...

Objectively, he's good at what he does. Pursed lips, hand gestures. Somber tones.

Resolve sewn into his annunciation.

A right bastard.

Oh, he's good in his way, Obama is the Smooth One. It's only when you forget the delivery and look at the content or lack of it...

I like that, "A right bastard"

You have nice a way with words.
