On a weepy, tired Sunday with the sun in the sky and the wind at your back…..

The dreams of our forefathers brave and bold

Humble and proud

Magical and renown

Through history’s judgements

And history’s tricks

Have been left forever to a bunch of clowns…..

Listen to the mocking birds

Dominance Games: A good little staunch questioner

As a good little staunch questioner of those who are of a political bent do you seek to understand the nexus of the issue at hand and steer your subject towards elucidation or the use of rancid speech as waste of time?

As a good little staunch questioner of those who are of a political bent are you there  for the thrill of speaking to one gracious enough to recognize your presence or are you there to allow them use you like a three dollar transaction so as to spout as many vile mind numbing set pieces, non answers and talking points as inhumanly possible to any and all of what may pass for imitation of thought or caricature of  question?

As a staunch questioner of those who are of a political bent do you get thrills up and down your spine when you are used and abused as no more than a hot little megaphone for  stridently honed plays to the bottom  and wild dances of glittering rhetorical twists, turns and hedonistic auto stimulation?

As a good little staunch questioner of those who are of a political bent are you thrilled to find out that you can go through a complete interview without ever getting the slightest inkling that your subject has any nascent or sentient human qualities what so ever?

As a good little staunch questioner of those who are of a political bent do you appreciate the inability of your subjects to structure logical arguments dependent upon false conclusions being built magnificently upon false premises so that false smiles can decry feted stimulation?

As a good little staunch questioner of those who are of a political bent do you revel in being the bent over constant stooge for the searing scathing thrusting agendas of the munificent constant bores who see themselves as interesting and full of god’s bodily fluids?

As a good little staunch questioner of those who are of a political bent do you feel the warming seas of total immersion taking you over, cascading around you and massaging you with bulbous, smothering, withering, eviscerating dementia?

Dominance Games: The logical structure of idea is an academic’s fantasy.

So what?  Important metrics of behavior are all gone.  Reason is a shadow … it is now reported.  It is unused and misused anyway.  Interviewers are at the mercy of the interviewee most of the time as the power metric favors the latter when anything of worth is mentioned.  All set ups all the time.  All position jockeying all the time.  Politics is power and the business of politics is power and the business of the business of politics is power.  The back bites are always huge.

Civilized history.  Trials of insouciant thought and defining principle.  The backbone of  daunting things.  The regal.  The royal.  The sublime.   Fairness.  Temperate temperance.   Demeanor.   Cool.  Tolerance.  Tradition.  The  sullen hammer.  The respect.  The fear.  The taut and tight.   Tis fear all about.

The tacky hammers.  The gods of Olympus .  The want of a hammer.  The hammers of good avocation.    Political hammers.  The whip hand, unnerving posture and the act of being better than their lessers grinding hands  creating fairy tales.

Balance power, rough justice, principle in the winds.  In the court of courts tough bastards know rough justice, damned fools know watching, who really thinks any plays are about problems when the jokers can’t even define , label, peruse or sniff out problems or agree on a common workable definition.  The logical structure of idea is an academics fantasy.  Better just shoot and kill.

Dominance Games: An ode to the unknown communicator

Posted in current events, journalism, literature, News, opinion, political analysis, political science, Politics, Uncategorized, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 10, 2011 by B Schiff

The romantic twaddle of burnt rats and the longings and feelers and resources of the dupes of the sweet songs of love thrown to us from the pulpits of the sly.

Listen sweetly to the self loving poems and paeans of breeding, baring, privilege and wonder as he/ she puzzles over reason well for  endearing ends.  Never know things that go bump in the night.  Always fear them.  Never look, always see the little monsters outside of our rancid dreams.

Strife, petition, leering gratification.  Gentrification.  Our putrid little mirrors can reflect too much light, light that burns and singes, burns and singes in the dark corners of the constant night of holy ignorance.  Heady rewards come to those who dance with the nimble and pristine.  The precise.  Lure and aphrodisiac.  Heady rewards come to those who dance with the ones who shimmy well and perform well.

Characters and preeners.  Dancers and singers.  All manner of ribald show and tell come to us as we trundle on our merry little ways.  Dismissive arrogance, weapons of masquerading follies attract us as  cheap perfume.   Cheap perfume attracts those for whom the mawkish and the patty functions best.

Pretty pictures and fancy illusory pieces.  The flaccid aerial circuses we gawk at make us proud.  Over sized performers in the trees waiting to fall off or to be picked by the tree pickers, we feel their pain.  These trees bear strange tasty fruits,  strange tangy nectars, the taste exotic, the after taste lingering majestically.   The sirens sweep softly.

Junk yard cats and howling dogs go bay at the night, the moon.  Fairy tales and sun rays define the joys and pleasures gained and sent by the grand operas of fondled passion and inebriated score.  Contraltos serene always allay fears in holidays of dead beyond the pale of contrition.

We love the ones we love.  lust, hell, dominance and greed are trips to be taken.

Dominance Games: For the fairy tales told their lying hearts

Posted in Commentary,, current events, journalism, News, opinion, political analysis, political science, Politics, Uncategorized, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 7, 2011 by B Schiff

Sometimes you see a dance step you’ve seen a thousand times before and its just a damned dance step.  Sometimes you a dance step you’ve seen a thousand times before and its  a damned whirlwind of warped motion and preening idiocy.  Sometime thing just go bump in the night and sometimes things get so that one more dollop of the same old same old can cause one to tremble with the bends and haves seizures of anguish at the thought.

How banal is banal.  How dull is dull.  How useless is useless.  Worthless is worthless.  Simple minded is simpleminded.  The automatons conquer again and again.  The first best scourge of the weak of mind and backbone…prefabricated noxious thought that makes spectators dirty and creepy when forced to be in any close proximity…… the automatons of political sneering conquer again and again.

Can’t we ever just give a slap to the back of the head and say shut up already.  Be a sentient being.  Please, no more of sicken and be perverse.,,, no more the love of spewed garbage. The lands of dead minnows allows deader minds to prosper.

Coming and coming.  Ding and dong.  Preen and posture.  Fill the breeze with dementia, diversion, positioning and incubating viral forms of the ever continually obnoxious.

Oh, the bother to be an eternal waste of time when you’re going to be an eternal waste of time.  To lord and conquer.  Steer the ship of state as a drunken sailor. Protect and serve….  fairy tales told their lying hearts….told our sighing, dying, lying hearts.  Lord over, break down, pick up the pieces, sit on top of the rancid pile.  The future luminous and bright.

Just a gigolo and the pimp…. the princess and the madame….and all the lame damned fools who fall for them, cede to them, bow at the feet of them so damned often, so damned wisely and so damned well.

Elections are for suckers.

Dominance Games: Foreign bastards from far away places like Wisconsin, Oklahoma, San Francisco, Arizona, Chicago, Florida , Alabama

Posted in Commentary,, current events, journalism, News, opinion, political analysis, political science, Politics, Uncategorized, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 6, 2011 by B Schiff

We could always go to war with each other.  Texas could use the steel toes and hard heels of cowboy boots to kick the living daylights out of effete north easterners.    New York could buy out the supplies that keep the south alive.  California could infiltrate morality squads and bring down god fearing folk.. Massachusetts could sneer us all into oblivion.

There could be more.  Tennesseans and Kentuckians could kill possums and infiltrate the meat supply.  Kansans could pray too loudly and bring down God’s wrath.   The rust belt workers could starve to death and send their bodies to others to bury….It could get better.

Why trust foreign bastards from far away places like Wisconsin, Oklahoma, San Francisco, Arizona, Chicago, Florida , Alabama? Why not tariff goods from state to state?  Why not sneer at states that don’t run the system to protect their rights to be pure and secure?  Why not just give the whole damned thing up, pack in the tents, find friends in far away places like Uzbekistan, France, Sweden, the DAR?

Poor moribund one worlders, internationalists who see a union of states.  taking sovereignty from the endowed creatures of defines ruggedness, the core of irreducible oneness?  Damned the socialists and the soft thinkers.

Why bother with a national agenda when we can’t stand being in the same room with each other?  Why bother with national purpose when national purpose means only that they  screw you matter what?

Rank central government heels when there is healing it can do.  Rank central government intrudes when there is overriding, overreaching intruding to do.  power mad cynical entities big and small are of perversion and folly.  Too much the pull…fear and hate it.  Too little the help…need and want it.   Too dumb the gamers, run it to hell.  The United States is.  The United States are.   Smart…watch how ever it plays …

…Love the law of unintended consequence.

Dominance Games: Stupid is as stupid does and stupid does damned well thank you. Smart is for the unclean.

Posted in Commentary,, current events, journalism, News, opinion, political analysis, political science, Politics, Uncategorized, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 5, 2011 by B Schiff

Dumb as they come.  Stupid is as stupid does.  It is not good to be a dimwit.

Once upon a once dumb was done.  One and done and not to be braced again…. and again and again.  Well maybe only one again.  Nevermore.  The age of smarts is a long gone epoch, an epoch tinged in sepia, brokered with lilting memories of cultural and historical awareness, drowned in the seas of bitterness held by all who thought that thought was a cherishable thing, a useful thing, an undamning thing.

Characters for reeducation these, a harrowing threat to the valuable gene pool of the simple suckers spouting simple things in order to appeal to simple folk joyous in there simplicity, sure in their lack of logical construct, unawares of false hypothesis or grand self delusion.

Dumb is easy.  It takes only loud and force, easy targets and the echoes of fearful ardors.  Dumb is dumb.  Loud enough and it seeks to cower opposition into acceptance of legitimacy.  Soft enough and it seduces the needy and the hateful who need the experience.  Dull enough and no sense and nonsense become toys for vitriolic syntax and visceral mean.   Stupid is like that.  Often wily.  Many times strong.  Demagoguery in the tumbleweeds.  Stupid is as stupid does and stupid does damned well thank you.

Smart was a once upon a time.  Now seditious and seductive, dangerous, odious, treasonous and unpatriotic, smart.  Smart is for no one unless for the doctor that treats you…only then if under conditions that don’t undermine your belief system.  Smart…..the irrepressible poison in the drinks of the unenlightened unwilling dancers of the dumb dance.  They wave with the flag.  Smart is for demon enemies of the state and seducers of innocent girls. Smart is fever.  It is the tool of hell.  Smart is a puerile mix and a sum brew fed to innocents who are impressionable and wayward.  Smart is for the unclean.
