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

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

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

Posted in Commentary,, current events, journalism, media, News, opinion, partsanship, political analysis, political satire, political science, Politics, satire, Uncategorized, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 29, 2011 by B Schiff

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.

Dominance Games: Truth, justice, traps

Posted in Commentary,, current events, Education, journalism, media, News, opinion, political analysis, political satire, political science, Politics, satire, Uncategorized, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 27, 2011 by B Schiff

Names and things.  People, places, names and things.  There is a reluctance in this retched little corner of the world to discuss the myriad depths of political, power, activity in terms of specific people, false front mimicking cyphers, the  almost real imitations of almost real cardboard cutouts, sickly fire hydrants and immature fires in terms that give credence to the indoctrinal facts of their fretful being.

The talk of personality is often unsettling as the true nature of the public characters is a non important thing as the presence of substance is just usually an illusory waste of time and the absence of same is that that is simply taken for granted.

The acts of the recognition of the pseudo packaged, over glossed lolly pops that pass for burlesque entertainers in today’s constant marketplace of farce is little more than bowing to the inevitable let down that generally comes when the reality of the rancid circus hits home and the flock and the sounds and the dances performed we see is our reward for being good little girls and boys.

The disgust here is not with the obvious disgust engendered by those who do disgust for a living but with the failure of any effort what so ever to slap silly all of the over aged adolescents and to make them act old enough to take out the car for a plea their first junior prom.

It seems more worthwhile to try to game the game playing, sucker the sukerdom, flake off those upon whose acceptance our very grand inanities play out, bow down and worship the self satisfied smug wisdom of all of those who pat themselves on the back with the knowing manner of the acceptance of politics as the mind numbing bottom feeding race to the bottom.

Stand with strength for truth, justice, the American way without falling into the traps set by those who would yap at the feet, nip at the ankles and call anything non ideological weak and pseudo intellectual and be a comic book imitation of a comic book imitation.  There’s money, power, fun and sexual gratification there for the yappers, the nippers……sick stomachs there for the rest of us.

Dominance Games: Flak takes on the world and its gold

Posted in Commentary,, current events, Education, journalism, media, News, opinion, partsanship, political analysis, political satire, political science, Politics, satire, Uncategorized, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 27, 2011 by B Schiff

So we get beaten over the head every day with the mad wonks and spry slippers of politic land telling us sincerely that they are aware of and involved in dealing with the main important issues of the day.

They tell us true what today’s truths are…what tomorrows truths should be and what yesterdays parades of truths really were.  In  grand currant luminous wisdom they  impart to us the multileveled discount price of only having to listen.

Misery indexes, talking points, power presentations …..the real , the unreal, the imagined…what the hell… there can be a damned good story to sell, a damned good angle to use…a damned good lot of fool listeners to play with.   Slogans, baked truths, dilemmas, slithering vixens… the truth shall conquer all.  The game is on and the truth shall conquer all.   Sit and listen and care really.  Realities and complexities of any blow back…. the tricks of the trade

Hard edged eager takes on the world and its gold.   Renounce political advertising.  Renounce political posturing.  Renounce as obnoxious bores the players and our buddies, our friends and icons who try to game the game, the arguments, the funnies of our thought.  Make em work for their money…..Right and Santa gives mothers day eggs on Halloween and the fourth of never.
