Into the Land of Bones

( – promoted by buhdydharma )

One change makes you larger,

And one change makes you small,

And the ones Obama gives you, don’t do anything at all.

Go ask Geithner, when he’s ten feet tall.

Bring a shovel with you, he’s WAY down in that 10 trillion dollar rabbit hole no Obamabots want to talk about, he’s down there with the Mad Hatters of Wall Street and the Cheshire Cats of the Fed, he’s down there high-fiving his Goldman Sachs pals, they’re on a roll, they’ve been raking in market bubble billions and cashing in when those bubbles have exploded ever since the 1920’s.                

Mad Hatters, Cheshire Cats, whacko wingnuts and Goldman Sachs.

Are we having fun yet?

Speaking of rabbit holes, Afghanistan’s is a prize winner.  That one’s as deep as it gets, it’s been swallowing up armies since Alexander the Great.  Armies go into that land of bones, but they don’t come out.  It’s where empires go to die.  Someone should tell Obama that.    

And if you go chasing rabbits,

And you know you’re going to fall,

Tell ’em some hookah-smoking bloggers have given you the call,

To call bullshit, when change is just small.

When the men on that chessboard . . .

Get up and tell you where to go,

And you’re lost in all those dimensions,

And your mind is moving low,

Go ask Alice, I think she’ll know.

What will she tell you?  “This is getting curiouser and curiouser!”  That’s what she’ll tell you.  

When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead,

And the White Knight is talking backwards . . .

Remember what the dormouse said,

Feed your head.  Feed your head.

Feed it some reality, Obamabots.  Feed it some logic, feed it some proportion, feed it some truth. Here’s some truth for you: this economy’s a land of bones, it’s been a land of bones ever since Reagan and his RePugs handed it over to those fucking vultures on Wall Street.  They led us into this land of bones, but we don’t have to stay here.  

We aren’t going to get meaningful change

unless we generate maximum pressure from the left.

On Obama.  On Democrats in Congress.  

It has to be unrelenting.

Unrelenting.

    I’ve turned into a mullein smoking blogger.  Its what I’ve been cutting my tobacco with to make it go farther.

    Things just seem to keep getting curiouser and curiouser, don’t they?

  1. It’s off to Traverse City I go. (It’s the place where all the jobs are for my kind.) Only they are not paying for lodging, food, nor transportation. And if we don’t go, we will not get any jobs for 90 days.

  2. you couldn’t be more right, I don’t think!

    I think you know who Gore Vidal is — probably, the foremost American historian in existence today.  Check this out!

    He’s perfectly logical — I don’t think he’s wrong!  Unless there is some dramatic change in our direction — ha, ha, like that’s a REAL possibility!

  3. Loved your post. The music of truth!

    It is long past time for a PROGRESSIVE agenda.

    The Conservative / Corporate philosophy has been shown to be an utter & complete FAILURE, with three decades of ironclad, undisputed FAILURE, that is unless you are a Corporation or the super RICH & only care about GREED & the nightmare of EMPIRE!

    Conservatives conserve “their” power.

    Progressives progress “our” power.

    President Obama, “bipartisanship” is only another Conservative / Corporate LIE.

    Be PROGRESSIVE. Lets switch the rules of the game, lets progress “our” power, “We the People”, at the expense of the Corporations & the RICH, lets CHANGE the rules to benefit “us” over “them”, look at what the message of HOPE did, presidency, house & senate, just think what the “commitment” to & the “implementation” of AUDACITY will do!

    We need PROGRESS & that can only be achieved with PROGRESSIVE ideas & PROGRESSIVE leadership.

    The Conservative ship of ideas, based on PROFIT, WAR & the Supremacy of the Wealthy has hit the ideological iceberg of their own creation, their Captains – Gingrich, Ensign, Jindal, Sanford, Giuliani, Palin, etc. are all calling down to the engine room, barking orders, “More of the same, ignore that ripping sound in the hull, FULL SPEED AHEAD!”

    But fear not, we have a new Captain, we can now give new orders, we can finally CHANGE course, we can “reach the promised land”, we can CHANGE “our” country from the land of “me” to the land of “we”, we can do ALL of this by being PROGRESSIVE!
