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?

Dominance Games: Good little one who imputes motives

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: Our grand national dream

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: 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: Reap the wild dirge of rapscallion fancy

We beg the grim reaper to not waste our poor little lives.  We watch the angels as they watch over us.  The little devils…they come from there, they come from from here, they saunter about and just come from every  which where.

We have our little lusts.  They have our little lusts.  We have our little  depravities.  They have our little depravities.   We are bold in manner, strong in virtue.  They just want to know the nobility of our character.   We just want our dear little selves spread around for all to see and know.  They will love us to death.  We will give money to strangers,  our lives to the depraved.

We lust for composure in a void.  They wish us no void, tell us no tale, love the ones they are with…us …always us….always lucky little us.   They marvel at the variety and depravity of  life’s blood.  No more sneaking through sins unapplauded, unwanted.  No more lust driven fancies.  No more fun.

The pleasure of deeply held perversion is gone with the wind.  The pleasure of deeply held perversion is a spectator sport for the thought police and the enemies of my soul..Let me entertain my enemies.  Let me give my lustful fantasies to others to enjoy.  They deserve it.  They need their thrills and fancies.  I need their prurient interest.  We all need the great arena of shared experience.  The oh so recognized theater of the primed absurd.

We all can reap the wild dirge of rapscallion fancy….and be better wonders for it.  We all can  reap the wild wind together and know that it is worth the breeze in the trees. it…the pains of the gains, the crud of the stealing of us.  Cheep thrills and good shopping, the main character, the star of the constant story of our dreary little lives.  Tawdry and good and fun and done..the passing panorama.  I liked it better when there were just hidden cameras and bugs in my bedroom.  There was a nice cozy sense of security there.

Politics / Dominance Games: Revolution….The facts of livable survival. The fools errand of the naive

Posted in Commentary,, current events, News, opinion, political analysis, political science, Politics, Uncategorized, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 9, 2011 by B Schiff

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: 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: The sultry seductions of the vapors of the damned

Posted in Commentary,, current events, News, opinion, political analysis, Politics, Uncategorized, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 3, 2011 by B Schiff

Cry baby, cry.  Tears baby, tears.  Play baby, play.  Be baby, be.

Use baby, use.  Be used, babe, be used.  Worry about the bastards money coming down the pike and up the river making rich richer, making color colorful. making bright brighter for dim bulbs.   Champion aggrieved. Hedonistic moralizing.  Falling swans turn ugly ducklings over night…and the opposite.

Buy us.  Sell us.  Have us for lunch.  Have us for dinner.  Have us for play and pay, for divine indifference.  Learn the simpletons, embrace the sentence structure of those who have good talk.

Feel the heat.  Turn coy the passion.  Turn coy the scintillating seduction, the sighs, the winks, the nods, the sultry seductions of the vapors of the damned.

Cheer us on.  Break cold.  Break us down.  Tell us no tales.  Whip us no lies.  Treat us our little hearts with no tenderness or affection.

Maul us.  Devour us.  Bore us.  Sicken us.  Convince us.  Buy us.  Sell us.  Churn us up and spit us out.  Charm us freely.  Own us whole.  We have the worth.

Push and pull.  Maim and lame.  Deafen with soulful sins.

Champion us.  Chump us.  Chumped us listen.  Chumped us get rain.  Chumped us believe.  The searing truth, bought and sold, dressed up for candle light.

Buy the buy.  Spend the spend.  The scum ain’t buying nothin’foe nothin’, spending nothin’ for nothin’.  We ain’t getting nothin’ for nothin’.

Store bought wraps.   Painted woman.  Rotten candy……. Sure enough.  Tomorrow and tomorrow.  Give early and often.  Buy early and often.  Vote early and often.

Stays bought.   Gets bought.   The badge of honor.  Paid for the badge of honor.  Elections: the usual and the cheap.   The shell games and the phony fronts.  The messages suckers listen to…….Idealists be happy.

Of many

Dominance Games: Thought in the marketplace of ideas

Posted in Commentary,, current events, News, Politics, Uncategorized, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 23, 2011 by B Schiff

Always the marketplace of ideas.  Always the good, the vile, the trenchant. The ugly, the dividable, the constant.  The ill formed, the dense.  Always the right to think …uncooked, overcooked, burnt out.  Undeveloped, lacking in substance, fact or logical base.  Slick, hateful. mundane.  Self assured, self righteous.  Grounded in the name of God and the angels.

Grand traditions of thought … right; the instigation of prickly combat, the plays for hypothesis,synthesis, thesis.  Ideas flourish and blooms a thousand roses and food to feed millions.  Knowledge: study, combat, brass knuckles, rolling in dirt.  Good thought triumphs over bad, matched in the cauldron of public discourse.  This is so.

The battle of the network thoughts can be a supreme battle…. a ratings winner… the best damned scripted reality show on all media all the time, on all social media all the time, on all thug actions all the time.  Dream the dream.  Open the floor to pure imagination, examination.  Winners win.  Losers lose.  The vanquished get clobbered and virtue accedes as always to put up winners.  Grand spectacle here.  Grand spectacle there.  Grand spectacle everywhere.

Allow for the wins of the neanderthal chest thumpers.  Access to implementation of words and deeds is proof of God’s favor… the win closes off discussion…eliminates virtue in the demeaned rancid other…closes off  rematch or challenge.  The game is of but power and self protection. The game is not of the ideas of soft hearted dupes.  Staunch honorable true believers think good thoughts, demand proper interpretations of all others.  Never give a sucker an even break.  Never give a challenger a voice. …. Democracy is not for the weak.  Only for those who can game it…Here there and everywhere.   Spring, summer or fall.

Behind the sacred god of gods, the freedom to be a rotten bastard can achieve many seedy ends.  Dregs of losers get kicked around in the streets.  The exchange of thought in the marketplace of ideas gives virtue to those who wish to shut down the marketplace.

Dominance Games: A good peace

Posted in Commentary,, News, Politics, Uncategorized, writing with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 12, 2011 by B Schiff

Parity.  Fairness.  Xenophobia.  Heartfelt compassion.  Good people all with thin skins.  The world is not an easy place.  The whining of poor babies echoes loudly from here to the Martian sunrise.  The stiff cries of hold my hand are deafening…..and often time a counter weight.

Too much the demeaning, the demonizing.  Too much the self righteousness, the closed mindedness, the self importance.  Too much the liberalizing efforts of the universal comforters.  The store gets given away to those who work it not.

The fierce battles rage on.  The rights of the group and the membership therein.  Membership is a thing open to passions and reasons and fears and such.  The melting pot of old does not always melt.  It does not always blend.  It is at mercy to the ingredients in the stew and the stew often has uncooperative parts, the main ingredients rancid, the diced additives being not of a combining kind.

Staunch defenders of the faith are oftentimes intolerant.  The non narrow us is the over ripe other.

Battlegrounds.  Power is often to save face and place, often a trip for the hard relentless.  The power is not me…diffuse it, challenge it, break it.  the enemy.

Cohesion not when there are prizes to be won, sacred cows to be hidden, ridden, enemies to love to hate.  Thugs can marshal the forces of the club…bring harm and grief… trump peace and joy and love and understanding.  For a good peace the thugs have to be noble thugs.  A good peace … not often.
