OR ... MAY YOU CULPA?
Note To All
Every once in a while I must knock myself down a peg or two - ergo, I apologize for my BIG MOUTH!
Considering: the state of the Economy, the World at-large, the mis-treatment of VETERANS, the Crookedness of Politics, the Lying of Officials, the Corruption of Corporations and Congress, the slaughter of God’s innocent Creatures, the Greed of Warmongers, the Stupidity of the Gulf Disaster, the Assininity of War, the Skewing of Truth by the Media, the weakness and Apathy of Americans, and a myriad of other things that ‘go bump in the night’ - I get EXASPERATED - PISSED OFF - FLABBER-GASTED ... and I just have to BLOW OFF STEAM!
While this does not excuse my screaming at the top of my lungs with CAPS - so to speak, it may help to explain my Humanity?
I have been guilty many times in the past of using nasty split-infinitives to describe various and sundry politicians, so-called representatives, and other government officials, like: RAT-BASTARDS - SONS-A-BITCHES - and ARSE-HOLES ... and being fully cognizant of my limited vocabulary, will probably continue to do so in the future. “If the shoe fits - wear it!”
As of this writing, there are approximately 165 days left before the General Elections here in the Good Ole U.S. of A. - to this end, I would be remiss if I did not include herein a friendly reminder ...
VOTE OUT ALL INCUMBENTS !!!
The ‘Two-Party’ System has taken us down the ‘Primrose Path’ for far too long now. America needs some ‘New Blood’ in every level of government - Local, State, National, Inter-National - Doctors, Dentists, Teachers, Electricians, Carpenters, Plumbers, Computer Nerds, Bus Drivers, Semi-Drivers, Firemen, Policemen, Veterans, Retirees, Indian Chiefs - in short, a cross-section of the ‘Common Man’ - hard-working, caring, empathetic individuals that will simply do a good, simple, honest Job for ONE TERM -
And then, return to their ‘normal lives.’
You may have noticed the absence of Lawyers in the above ‘litany’ - that, my Dear Friends, is by Choice! Enough is Enough! Over a Century of Legal Jargonese, or ‘GOBBLE-DE-GOOK’ - is quite sufficient. Imagine new, simple laws, ordinances, rules, whatever - expressed in Simple English - understandable, practical, and not intentionally confusing, nor self-serving!
Patriots, Citizens, Common Folk - with one solitary Goal - to Improve America, by Up-Holding The Constitution, and actually Obeying their Oaths of Office. How Novel! How Basic! How Sensible!
Another Author here at Authors Den, John V. Martin, in a separate communiqué to me personally suggested a Term that I particularly like:
The FREE AMERICAN PARTY.
Does that not have a nice Ring to it?
Granted, the current move under way for some time now, is The TEA PARTY - while this is quite a ‘catchy’ phrase, reminding us of our History in the Port of Boston, many years ago - and the concept of Rebellion against Tyranny, and “Taxation Without Representation” - I honestly fear that many, many opportunists are ‘Jumping on the Band-Wagon’ - like ‘rats running from a sinking ship’ -
Citations from Encarta World English Dictionary:
Equus Asinus - Donkey - a small domesticated member of the horse family with a gray or brown coat, long ears, and a LARGE HEAD - somebody thought of as lacking intelligence (informal insult).
Loxodonta Africana - Loxodonta Cyclotis - Elephas Maximus - Elephant -
A large gray or grayish-brown animal with a long flexible trunk, prominent ears, thick legs, and pointed tusks - somebody or something that is extremely large or much larger than average.
Leucocephalus - Bald Eagle - a large North American eagle found mainly near lakes and rivers, the adult of which has a white head and tail.
SO - instead of an ASS, or a LUMMOX - how about a Logo or Emblem for a New Party that is truly representative of America, as One United Nation? The American Eagle!
Finally, in closing, I look at the current OIL CASTROPHE in the Gulf of Mexico, wonder about the repercussions yet to come, far into the future, and a vivid motion picture comes immediately to mind. In the final closing scene of the old movie ‘Planet of The Apes” - as Charlton Heston rides his trusty steed along the sandy shoreline, out in the distance we realize the absolute, poignant theme of the entire movie ...
There in the background, barely extending above the waterline, at a dangerous tilt, sadly exposed is just the Tip of the Torch, and part of the Head of ...
THE STATUE OF LIBERTY!
The crash-landed astronauts were actually back where they started -
ON PLANET EARTH!
DEVASTATED BY MANKIND!
