A beneficial blog discovery!
Here are some political thoughts and articles from trollfighter which I can totally appreciate (although the Maine references are over my noggin) with prez campaign insights that are up my alley for the most part.
The performance aspects of Politics, like those of any field of entertainment, are what I seem to focus upon usually, for we know that what politicians Say is the truth is precisely what he wants you to accept as being true and is not necessarily ‘as advertised.’
In fact, it Is public relations in action upon the larger stage of life and it’s ego vs ego between factions and heads of factions, most of whom are representin’ for someone whose interests are being served. Luxuriously, too.
These are “our”–the “People’s”–representatives acting on others’ behalves and selling us out day by day, deal by deal.
Washington! Oh District of Columbia:
‘DC” as we called my long ago favorite stomping ground, beautiful town of embassies, built over a swamp, if that tells you anything about the city’s underlying character. Others have observed DC’s rancid, sulphuric tendencies as well, so I’m not alone in my putrid analogy.
Astrology agrees: how a thing begins is how it will end, and to me, a swamp of corruption, fraud, and blackmail makes a heady and rabid goat’s head stew for plausibly denying politicos everywhere. Croutons, Y’all?
And you, whether Mason, astrologer, or none, know what it is they say makes a real estate sweetspot reign supreme: location, location, location.
How about Campaign 2008? America is the only nag I have in any race and in spite of my lack of faith in any candidate who’s managed to get as far as McCain, Clinton, and Obama have to even be considered in the running (having been vetted by the powers-that-be and all), America still gets my vote–ignored, deleted, or misdirected as it may be.
Too bad there’s not been an American nominee in many a year who feels as I do about the old girl. It’s supposedly all about “Party”, yet our Lady Liberty’s torch must fall against many swords in these times.
And in this battle, only justice will triumph in the end.
So how about our 2008 candidates? Is there a Constitution defender in the bunch? Someone who will restore and protect our right to trial by jury?
Then stick ‘em in office, for the Transcendental Egg awaits them with its magic carpet rides and all the pretzels they can eat–any time, day or night…even at 3 AM. The staff and crew are always on duty a la Maison Blanche, destroying backup files, okaying torture, maligning book authors who spill magic beans, kickin’ the can down the November Road…running a W-H administration involves endless hard werk and balancing on a highwire strung across the world stage.
Yes, they’re always ready to rock’n'roll a la Maison Blanche…and a rather spectacular flea circus, they are, are they not? My feathers are quite sparse and snaggledy after nearly 8 years of struggling to scratch the neocon infestation out of my White House’s hair.
Neocon infestations are No Joke, People.
“In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all — security, comfort, and freedom. When…the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free.” — Sir Edward Gibbon (1737-1794)
Having just published a Page (see sidebar): ‘Wedding Day Astrology: Jenna Bush m. Henry Hager,’ I thought you might wish to casually nose under the tent flap concerning the two lovebirds bound for the altar of commitment at an evening ceremony held at the Prairie Chapel Ranch in Crawford, Texas in the Merrie Olde Monthe of May.
May 10 should be a perfect evening for a wedding!
