A Tsunami of Bullshit(Topical Observations)

1. The Israeli invasion of Gaza is an unprecedented and illegal escalation
of Israel's continuous mistreatment of the Territories. The bombed the
power grid and have bombed buildings and manned the bulldozers.
The rationale--to rescue one soldier who was part of a violent incursion
against the Palestinians---as soon as the invasion began the Palestinians,
who have no US made tanks and missiles, kidnapped a settler too--this is
their only form of offense......No outcry from the UN...No criticism from
anyone.


2. The "Protection of the Flag" amendment thankfully was voted down. The idea
of the greedy bastards in the Senate telling us what is sacred and what isn't
galls the sensibility of any intelligent being. These people who deny minimum wage
increases and yet increase their wages at every opportunity obviously think the
flag is worth more than a US Citizen. They spend time debating this bullshit issue.
While allowing healthcare to go unheeded---Protect the Flag! Keep the Queers from
Marrying! Bullshit.


3. Cable news only presents spectacles and "threats to our lives". They also love to
to bring together opposing sides for some "heated exchanges"---all bullshit.

4. The FBI's bust of an "alleged" Al Qaeda Cell in Miami bends the credulity of even
the most suspicious. Yes, 8 poor Haitians with no money, no durable transportation,
no explosives and no true contacts with Al Qaeda other than a US Agent pretending to
be from Al Qaeda offering cash--were hell bent on taking out the US! A plot to take
down the Sears Tower(an idea offered by the Agent).....Yes folks! Thank God the
Authorities are protecting us from poor Haitians who are so poor they'll take money,
no matter the condition. This was a poor set-up---The men were patsies--and very poor
patsies at that. Their legal help will be minimal---Disgraceful Bullshit.


5. Andrea Yates is finally getting a fair trial. She should be found innocent by reason of
Insanity...And remanded to a Mental Institution. Mental Illness is a serious issue and
is not given enough respect in the United States. We fear it and wish to hide it. We see
the same crassness in the treatment of "pedophiles" who are now called "Sexual predators".
If you watch any Cable News network you'd think the streets were crawling with "Sexual
Predators"--It's reminiscent of the Red Scare--One on every street--In every school!
Keep you scared and cravenly "eat up" the Bullshit.

Milton's Nightmare

The field
To labour calls us now with sweat imposed,
Though after sleepless night.


Paradise Lost, XI, 171-3



Our brow's sweat
savors no bread

License cherished
as Liberty goes
famished

Past pillars
the Cerberan throng,
surfeit with cake,

Lack spirit and
virtuous sinews
for the Letter.


They stoop
under the yoke.

Heads drown.

Air, a trillion waves of
Principality

Truth, teardrops lost 
in a bitter ocean.
