We can best be protected from extreme evil in the political sphere by spreading around power as much as possible.  The philosopher king or the wise council of elders may be, in their pure forms, the most admirable and efficient forms of governance.  They may bring the best of virtue, vision, majesty, bearing and trust.  These forms may be the abject model of all seekers of wisdom and truth, all seekers of greater, better existence for greater, better political entities, systems, states, facts.  Wisdom and virtue flow undiluted, unfragmented from implementer.  Implementation is a dream..

Virtues  in these epochs of rule are great but as it is with all such things the templates always seem to have equal and opposite flip sides.  The greater good is matched by the greater evil and in real terms governance is best served when as a staunch representative of protection from harm.  The positive is as a bonus…an unexpected bonus of maturity and purpose, reflection and wisdom…that which when it comes… survives…leaves hope.

This is as close to safety we can come to in a world dependent upon the rational and irrational hates and passions of the bubbling classes.  Passion has its virtues…and its price.

In these aspects and respects…we crave our loved version of mass influence…our republic…our democracy.  All done well, good may prosper, right may flourish, balance may be achieved.  All done not so well…most of the mob survives the long knives, the hounds, the wolves, the cuts and the destruction.

Politics is kick ass and dangerous, armed and dangerous, dangerous and dangerous.  Grateful we are for what we see as the limits to the mass dangers we face, in the forms of the base outcomes we can endure.  We bless the phlegmatic, the powerless, the resigned and the the facts of livable survival.  Seeking the better and the good is always the fools errand of the naive known to the knowing and the wise.

Dominance Games: Good little delineator of cultural fact

As a hero god before us.

As a true little delineator of cultural, scientific and historical fact are you glad to let the world know of lies, damn lies, statistics, half truths, ill found premise, incomprehensible conclusions?

As a true little delineator of cultural, scientific and historical fact are you sure that you are the true one, the one and only one and only, who truly knows their own chimeras images, their own natural habitat, their own generally accepted incendiary real and observable blasphemous worlds.

As a true little delineator of cultural, scientific and historical fact are you sure  that you  get the gist of these terms as you see them, are you sure that you roam freely as a mutant creatures in backwater rubbish factories masquerading as toxic waste?  Are you sure that you are from  places that produce  pink and floaty flotsam and factoids and that the blue and mundane jetsam, trash and reasoning from the school of “because I said so” languishes so nicely on your lips?

The  slush heaps of dead pools and and dried brain cells of life are not your only true mantra and they thank you for it.

As a true little delineator  of cultural, scientific and historical fact are you quite sure that you can see past the void, the divine propaganda proliferated by fallow ingrates who have agendas of scholarship?  The radical politics of scientific method is opposed to the shining facts of those of pure heart and tender mercies.  Education produces those of false opinion and learning can only be achieved by the indoctrination of a bias towards evil.

As a true little delineator of cultural, scientific and historical fact are you  the withering questioner of those who know nothing and embrace the depths of rot?

As a good and true little political actor in these United States are you sure that you have the stature worthy of an even a mediocre character by an even mediocre writer of even mediocre political fiction?

As a good and true little political actor in these United States do you have even the stature of an even mediocre farce of an even mediocre play of an even mediocre burn in an even mediocre hell?

As a good and true little political actor in these United States would you even be imbued by same to be a character deemed worthy of some sort of an even mediocre imitation of mediocre respect?

As a good and true little political actor in these United States are you in your mediocre way standing in the shadow of the grand boots of any of the strong and noble, mature and thoughtful well remembered giants of American political life?  Overwhelming and beyond the pale, that you would have knowledge of such things. … All a bit out of touch with the hollow of your heart?

As a political actor in these United States do you ever feel that you are extremely worthy of being a middle school dropout but much out of your league when it comes to being able to handle the intricacies of the high school prom committee?

As a good and true little political actor in these United Statesare you sure that stature is a word in your dictionary and are you sure that dictionary is a word in your dictionary?

As a good and true little political actor in these United States are you worthy of being looked up to from a position of down or is down too far above your head?

As a good and true little political actor in these United States are you the untouched witches brew of dignity, purity, slovenliness, gluttony, avarice, meanness and void as in cypher?  Are you lovely?

Are you a good little political operative who is happy with the structural flaws in our political system that makes it your job to revel in and celebrate all of the ways the system and its people can be gamed, used, laughed at?

Are you a good little political operative who is that true cynical wonder who will exploit ignorance where he finds it, exploit foolishness where it can be nourished, exploit dimness and self delusion as it it dances around its merry way?

Are you a good little political operative who is wise to the ways of the mechanics of system and and the pressure points and disingenuous levers of power so that you can work wonders with the right amounts of willingness to debase.

Are you a good little political operative who is proud to mock those open to mocking, those being  schoolyard dumb and open to such things? Does rational discourse threaten your soul, your fun, the level of ability of your candidate?

Are you a good little political operative who cares for the honor in your profession and the true stature of your candidate?  the nature of your candidate?  Are you a political operative who with honor true character unimpeachable and of the type and stripe that is immune to personal corruption?

Are you a good little political operative who knows that a knife fight goes to the mean crazy eyed bastard, goes to the junk yard dog?

Are you a good little political operative who knows that protection in a knife fight goes to certain preparedness…. and that once you got the tools to maim…maim……

The good little folk all over wouldn’t have it any other way.

As a good little wonder who imputes the motives of 40% of the population do you impute the motives of the 40% plus of the population who differ with you politically?

As a good little wonder who imputes the motives of 40% of the population do they have any thought processes that are worthy of any kind of respect?

As a good little wonder who imputes the motives of 40% of the population … Are they to be considered good Americans?

As a good little wonder who imputes the motives of 40% of the population … If you win are they worthy of you consideration?

As a good little wonder who imputes the motives of 40% of the population …. If you consider their motives impure or their thinking ignorant why should they support the American presidency if it has not respect for them?

As a good little wonder who imputes the motives of 40% of the population … If you think that these others have impure ideas or are not of good conscience why do you wish to be their president, their representative.

As a good little wonder who imputes the motives of 40% of the population …. Are differing views and  hard thought ideas worthy of respect amongst people of good will?

As a good little wonder who imputes the motives of 40% of the population…. Why  demonize fellow citizens?

As a good little wonder who imputes the motives of 40% of the population …  If broad opposition differs in opinion from you are the holders of these opinions worthy of having these opinions given respect?

As a good little wonder who imputes the motives of 40% of the population …. Are the only good Americans your good Americans?

Are you a saint?

Dominance Games: Blowing the gig America

Skunk that skunk.  Maim those weak.  Fry order.  Dump decency.  Right  worth.  To elect is to be  right as rain.  Fair fights  and demon idiots win in the world of dreams.  In the world of wants.  In the world of how does it feel to want.  Competition flourishes  and you win a Buick.  Games on games.  Wheels on wheels.  Naked whimsies of naked riders riding naked on horseback….. nakedly.  The fantasies and virtues of  fantasies of virtue are long and luminous.

When there has to be a vote…make it crooked.  Where there has to be an electorate fix it.  Where there has to be a district game it.  Where there has to be a show….dance.  Politics is for suckers.  Might is for pros.

Common Suckers.

Lift that bail.  Tote that barge.  Skunk that skunk.  Hammer that nail.  Moral dignity and severe belonging.  Group buzz and kumbayah.  From the bottom up comes the power to change, to be wise.  From the bottom up comes the holy hell of the saintly pedestals upon which the bottom feeders and the  mighty pigs rest and lord.  From the bottom up.

Grand stability and surely supporters.  Roving marauding monsters cover great wide swaths of devouring nightmares devouring all before them as inebriated locusts in eternal heat swallow any governance and replace work with battle.  From the bottom up dreams come true.  From the bottom up America works.  So it goes.

From the bottom up comes the power,the virtue, the massive movements  hard knocks,  hard pain, sharp elbows, hurting places.  From the bottom up comes ribald thuggery and haunting bleeding.  Grab assed grab ass…. from the bottom up.

The base up.  The foundation up.  Many times, many ways the power in government and life comes from the base up, the foundation up.
Building blocks supreme support edifices and efforts of grand public pooh baas, void doers, do gooders and all serious scholars.  Mountains of sadistic gain are built lovingly and to the credit of justice from the bottom up.  When it does its good work and is in good grace.

From the bottom up.  Many times, many ways the shining power in government and life comes from the bottom up.  Many times many ways.

America, America……home home on the range

East side west side…… Johnny comes marching home

Oh say can we see…..the grand old flag

Look away, look away …the midnight ride of Paul Revere

Lizzy Bordon took an ax

This land is your land…  Georgia on my mind

The summer soldier and the winter patriot

The issues are complex

The issue dealers are power junkies

The system stays gamed

Day after day

What’s a citizen to do

Cry in his ineffective beer

Vote the system

Play holy and be the gamed happy gamer forever and a day

Cry and whine

Bitch and moan

Sweetly make no wily intrepid political tripes pay any price what so ever for blowing the gig America

Dominance Games: Our grand national dream

Posted in Commentary,, current events, gerrymandering, journalism, media, News, opinion, partsanship, political analysis, political satire, political science, Politics, satire, Uncategorized, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 1, 2011 by B Schiff

Its time to be patriotic and to happily celebrate the American Political system and its much noted capacity for being skewed towards the rancid partisanship of an elementary school shouting match complete with argument and truths always derived backwards from conclusion to premise to the optimum powers going to the optimum bullies.

We will celebrate our proud heritage of freedom and liberty by redefining the words to mean, as always, freedom from all views with which we disagree and liberty to call all adversaries evil and unpatriotic……. if history can be written by the winners than the definition of true Americanism can be coined by the speakers, the spinners, the propagandists.

In this season of our grand national dream we have set the table for a winner take all, no holds barred, totally gamed and cynical system of representation where the most ideological and least pragmatic, responsible, mature, understanding among us get to work their personal hates and dislikes to the detriment of all else.

Politics is not at all the profession of governance…it is the profession of in your face meanness and close minded self righteous bores.

They have won the system and they wish to be the best gamers of same.  There is no practical incentive for any real change.  The criers who bemoan the power of the wings and come out in favor of promoting voice foe the possibly responsible middle disappear when they may have the actual ability to act as they too seem to just wish their enemies no good.  They, too, talk good, act not at all.

The electorate does not give a damn about the machinations of the political and is ignorant of how they are gamed.  they think the system is some approximation of responsible democracy.

As always in celebration of independence….Welcome to freedom.

Dominance Games: Hate works

What checks do unfettered capitalists see as valid checks upon unfettered capitalists?  What state intrusions upon functioning businesses are seen as too much state intrusions upon functioning businesses by the standard bearers of state protection?  Protect the individual from the all encompassing state, protect the individual from the strangling tentacles of self serving business?  Of the partisans, hear no evil…see no evil….the magic mirrors of the faithful reflect only beauty.  All trust is true trust.

People wonder.  Support those who work against their own interests?  Threats to Labor’s  protection see it melting away with the toxic wastes of the viral abusers.  The dictation of policy and rules and turning employers and managers into employees comes hard charging and virulent.   Freedom to prosper as one wishes brings the need for paid help and competition sets the rate for needed good help.   Do good… need and must pay for good….unless it don’t.  Work hard and contribute skills and energies  upon which talents and work ethic rest and be not valued but seen as a replicable, replaceable  commodity…an undesirable temporarily necessary business evil, expense.   Rules from the top down.  Rules from the bottom up.

Oligarchies stand in place as they do.  They can enforce their positions, as they can.  They can convince the mass to let current order work its way through to happy glitzy outcomes for all.  Set the message.  Sell the message.  Indulge the fear.  Demonize alternatives.  Oligarchies of wealth and power are fun.  Oligarchies of power and influence, of dictation and thought, they are fun.  The dictation of standards, the dictation of living standards, hates and demons are strong.   Alternative views are for limp wristed thinkers.   are worse.  Hates are strong, give muscle, breeding, force, power.  They give the most pleasure, the fun of all.  Virulent hate of virulent enemies keeps our games going and our turkeys screeching.  Hate is the mustard on the hot dog of hate..

Dominance Games: Private truths. Private realities

Private prisons.  Private vouchers for private medicare given over to responsible private insurers.  Private militias roaming streets enforcing private laws and random definitions of order.   Self regulating private financial institutions privately looking out for nothing but their own private welfare.  Private armies fighting private wars answerable to private profit and private force.  Private rules and private laws taken over and enacted by private powers who have not to listen to checks or balances upon their private powers other than the threats of other private warriors warring better.

Private truths and private realities made privately secure by dint of private means of privately accessing the private levers of holy power.  Private distribution of private information, thrilling propaganda, base demeaning of those not strong enough to challenge and be crushed.

Private ownerships of private governments made safe for the private use of those who back the privileged and void the standing of eternal diminutive loser cyphers.

Private education for private thought spewed out by private teachers who are privately held accountable to the private standards of those wallowing with private leers and private agendas.

Private profits made by private profiteers who need workers only well off enough to stand up  and produce.

Private ownership of private privacy.

Private is what private does.

Dominance Games: Debase debase debase. With sincerity

Yes.  Yes.  And yes again.  Political season is here.  Talk is the talk.  Money money money is the talk talk talk.  As always, forever and a day…. as in dreams exciting or dull, slick or empty, hot or embarrassing….. time for seasons of uplift and truth.  Money money money.  Talk talk talk.  Debase debase debase.  With sincerity.

Forever and a day…  Today.  Tomorrow.  Forever and a day….. political speech is lying speech.   Political advertising is lying advertising.  Suckers ripe , the targets ripe are always ripe.   The suckers ripe, the targets ripe are always ripe… always ripe, always eternal all day suckers.

The tipping point is coming.  The tipping point is coming.  That dazzling moment  when an aware electorate sees that only fools handle the rot gut stuff of the cheap thrills and heightened addictions of the message makers and tramps.  The average clown takes these things as virile no more.

Money money money.  Talk. Talk.  Talk.  Spent on wicked acts, brazen words, mean flights of fancy.   Talk talk talk.  Money money money….. welfare then for cash strapped media…  welfare then for detoxing polemicists in love with self immolation.

Rock a bye baby on the tree top

Let it wallow in the breeze

Send it no silence

Send it no peace

Let it linger and die

As in song and story….. all good things come to an end…..

Listen to the truth….. It is everywhere.

Dominance Games: Idiots survive in public life because of such things

Posted in Commentary,, current events, journalism, media, News, opinion, political satire, Politics, satire, Uncategorized, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 28, 2011 by B Schiff

Many times in the histories of culture and civilizations there has been little shrift and less respect given those who sought the acquisition of knowledge, understanding, insight into moral issues; understandings of the basic mechanisms of the world.

Many times in the histories of cultures and civilizations those who aspired to these things were of a curiosity but not of a value as such a person was not a worthy citizen or a true patriot.

Many times in the histories of cultures and civilizations the pursuit of knowledge was that left to those who would have little stake in the real and active worlds of the salt of the earth folk making up the base forces and strong backbones of  the strong hard charging harmonious populations of regions, states, habitats, jungles.

Many times in the histories of culture and civilizations respect freely given those who would know better than to challenge myth and myth making, challenge the safe, the secure, the backbones of respect and decency… Many times in the histories of culture and civilizations these icons could offer only the daunting challenges of the  rigorous twisting of interpretations of sacred song and story.

Grand honor arrived at in the rejections of the  pox of devilish inquiry or in a rejoinder to satisfying ignorance and limited communion with the primitive gods of the seven deadly sins was an honor chastened by the embrace of the seven virtues.

The calls of the sinful sirens who wished to  leave these heavens vulnerable to the threatening schisms and mockers of the eternal could ever void the spread of the happy bliss of good folk.  Idiots survive in public life because of such things.
