Dominance Games: The long knives

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 abuser of the minds of men

As a good little arbitrator of the useful abuse of the minds of men,  as a good little speaker of wisdom and truth on the national stage are you a fine and dandy little advocate for the mind numbing densities of thrill seeking undulating, rapacious, leer loving, visceral thought?

As a good little arbitrator of the useful abuse of the minds of men,  heathen caressing bravado, simulating insouciant stature, hubris without bare naked warning, bearing without down seeking insight, degenerate pablum without the skills to identify food … As a good little arbitrator of the useful abuse of the minds of men are the lover?

As a good little arbitrator of the useful abuse of the minds of men, as a good little transparent mocking bird of  scavenging and bottom feeding …do you  lay claim to the ideas that you are not a rats thrilling dream sucked into a slimy worm hole of grime by an appetite for cheap tawdry thrills provided you by any cheep tawdry fondlers who can play your tune or work your predilections?

As a good little arbitrator of the useful abuse of the minds of men are you the demon demon sublimely enraptured with the prospect of the eviscerate splendor that comes from begging, pleading,wheedling, sighing, yelping, barking,  moaning, panting at the thought of being the open empty void of an open empty cypher that can be filled with screams, insatiable want, tears?

Are you as a good little arbitrator of the useful abuse of the minds of men adept at begging to be used by failed beggars who could not perform well enough to garner the rewards of the heightened and sexual satisfaction that comes with the sell out of the soul.

Are you as a good little arbitrator of the useful abuse of the minds of men a scrap heap of ill will?  Is opening your mouth to speak the act by which you can redeem all of the lost lusts of begging, longing, hot and humid silent, lonely midnights past?

Are you as a good little arbitrator of the useful abuse of the minds of men a lame little caricature of rancid whose only stabilizing thrills are those of smug hyperventilation?

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?

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.

Dominance Games: Good little law maker

As a good little law maker in these United States do you have respect for the institutions of government and any idea of consensus or do you find it desirable to game the system to benefit your positions?

As a good little office holder in these United States do you feel that the intent of our institutions is to find broad based coalitions or actions or is it to honor the winners at any cost?

As a good little member of the ruling class in these United States do you believe in the ideas of balance of powers or do you believe in the idea of maximizing gain in order to force your whims on all opposition?

As a good little member of the ruling class in these United States doyou give lip service to the ideals of “Democracy” or do you see “Democracy” as a form of government that can lead to the implementation of one party rule if that party is smart enough.

As a true little person of honor worthy of holding office in these United States do you find it arrogant to set different standards for the behavior of your allies as opposed to that of your adversaries?

As a true little person of honor worthy of holding office in these United States do you find hypocrisy to be an admirable trait?  Do you find it a glowing tool in the tool box of political gain?

Are you a person of worthy respect for the content of your character and the standards of your words and behavior.  Are you a bore?

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

Posted in Commentary,, current events, gerrymandering, journalism, media, News, opinion, partsanship, political satire, political science, Politics, satire, Uncategorized, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 3, 2011 by B Schiff

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: 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

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.

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.
