It is true, that while in the midst of eliminating toxic waste from my body for six days, the mind tends to dive deep into a primitive place of hiding, trying to avoid the pain, still a few tidbits of actual worldly news managed to work its way into my cerebrum.
Actually, during times of low level misery, one can focus quite clearly on minutia and solve major life issues. Let me give an example. I have a fitted sheet that was manufactured incorrectly. Just a tad so, so that it slipped through “inspector 39’s” no doubt otherwise capable hands, and landed in some store where from it was purchased by moi some years ago.
The problem with said sheet is that it just about an inch or two too tight, and it is a war indeed to get the last corner over the mattress. I have grown to hate this sheet. One might simply say, well, throw the thing away, or use it for rags and get another, but that would not be frugal, since there is otherwise nothing at all wrong with said piece of linen.
As I laid upon said sheet one day during my recent illness, glad that when I changed the sheet, I had the nice easy one to replace it with, I was suddenly inspired in my hazy thinking to realize that the solution was quite simple. Slitting the seam of the lower corners would of course not suffice, since the opening would only grow bigger and finally encompass the main sheet itself. But, my new found focus found an answer, quite simple in fact. Slit the seam, sew down the cuts and across the seam at the top, and connect the now two pieces with a bit of elastic, enlarging the circumference by the required extra inch or so. Simple!
I relate this bit of trivia only to alert you that my mind is functioning quite nicely and you may rely on my usual remarks as before, as coming from a sound and lively working cerebral environment. Let us begin with more urgent business!
There are not a lot of people who make my blood boil. Dick Cheney is one of them. More so than Bush for sure. Bush is doltish and not a critical thinker. Cheney is smart as a viper and twice as deadly.
Worse, he has developed an insane world view, shared by about six others on the planet. These few have determined that they are correct and billions wrong and nothing can dissuade them. Their arrogance is beyond measurement. They cannot be shamed, bullied, or logically argued with. People like Cheney you see, barely register our existence. We are but the fodder for their world machinations, the great unwashed hordes who carry out their pronouncements. We are on a lower evolutionary scale than they. We can never learn, so we may be dismissed.
We have heard this all before of course. When asked that perhaps the Iraq war was a mistake since a clear and serious majority of Americans had so concluded, he replied with the two words heard round the world, “So what?”
It should come as no surprise then, that little Adolph Cheney, in one of his farewell “interviews” with Fox Noise Chris Wallace yesterday, showed his utter contempt for most of humanity yet once again. Cheney was of course pontificating on how his new SCOTUS was not serving him so well when it came to Gitmo and the continued holding of tens of hundreds or thousands without benefit of lawyer or trial or any of the stuff we have become accustomed to in the US of A.
The darn court was actually finding that humans, by mere fact that they were HUMAN had certain rights. Cheney of course argued that some humans were not human enough to be bothered with. Wallace pointed out, that in some cases at least, where the court had stepped in and granted legal counsel and actual hearings of sorts, the Government case had collapsed and been shown to be worthless. He pondered,” does this not mean that at least in some cases the government has been shown to be wrong, Mr. Cheney? ”
“So what?” quacked Dick Fudd. You see, that doesn’t mean anything to the likes of intellectual geniuses such as Mr. Fudd. All those little ants running around acting like they know a thing. Why, it’s pure nonsense. One of Dickie’s favorite remarks is simply, “they don’t know what they are talking about!” End of discussion.
Cheney doesn’t believe in democracy of course, nor federalism, nor any of it. He believes that a small band of select individuals, such as himself should rule the world, for they have been gifted by God ( not any God you or I understand mind you, but they use God a lot) with the talent to be the deciders. All means are okay to achieve the end they desire. They are right, even if 10,000 nuns and 5 million angels tell them they are wrong. That is the truth.
Cheney is a good advertisement for stopping the advancement of medical research into heart therapy. Had all this happened fifty years ago, it wouldn’t have happened. His sixth or seventh heart attack would have long happened and we would have been saved from eight years of pretentious authoritative arrogance skillfully used to make the puppet Bush dance. Instead, we got stuck with a megalomaniac of the greatest proportion since Genghis Khan or Adolph himself. Bad luck I guess.
As I said, there is nothing to be done with said genetic misfits. They cannot be reasoned with. We can only await their deaths and let God sort it all out in his infinite wisdom. If Karma is real, Cheney will be spending more lifetimes than I can count atoning for his sins. I’m just glad he will soon be out of the focus once again.
Next we find ourselves at the extreme other end of the spectrum. Sarah Palin would be the antithesis of Dickie in so many ways. (One would give just oodles of money to hear Cheney in private speak about the qualifications of said Palin.)
Sarah is like a pinball that keeps bouncing around, and hitting the bells and we look up momentarily to see what silly fix MooseMama has gotten herself into this time. Then, thankfully we can return to life, and try again to forget that several million people with actual brains who eat and sleep and produce children, God forbid, actually voted for her!
It seems that Bristol’s boyfriend/husband to be (maybe, unless some better solution can be found), has a mom who has made the news of late. Said Mom/almost-in-law, has been arrested in Wasilla on various drug charges, some including manufacture with intent to deliver. We know not what, but they don’t call Wasilla the Meth capital for nothin’ I’m thinking.
While many drugs are bad, some are downright killers, and meth is one of them. Like I said, we aren’t sure what kind of drugs are involved, though it may be making the rounds of the news outlets by now, but in any event, we wonder this: Does this mean Sarah has been palling around with drug dealers? I mean it seems to fit her definition of association all right.You betcha!
Sarah your last two media hits have been rather nasty wouldn’t you say? Front for a turkey killing machine and now palling around with a drug dealer? Tsk, tsk, this is not the way to prime yourself for that run in 2012 ya know.
I’m not sure I am ready to return to the world of the living if this is what is in store. Maybe I should get the flu again!
