Going through the motions

Why bother or fuss, the result of US elections is a forgone conclusion, it’s “back to the future” with the plutocrat’s choice, Murdoch anointed, Hillary Clinton! Does anyone really have any doubts? The status quo is safeguarded with a change of face. Hillary’s foreign policy is indistinguishable from the neo-con's. It’s a “Bilderberg” (by invitation only) world -- the name under which today’s plutocrats determine the destiny of their shaky world!

Not again!
Not again!

Have we forgotten so soon that it was Bill Clinton who bombed former allies in Eastern Europe and initiated the ‘war on terror’ by bombing aspirin factories in Africa? It was Bill, under orders from the real rulers, who shakily set the scene for Bush and his neo-cons to pursue -- Afghanistan, Iraq and ‘Iran.’ Bill constantly reminds us of that fact in his interviews and lectures – but no one is listening so it’s the missus and perhaps a ‘male intern’ if it doesn’t work out!

Should we expect greater things from a nation so thoroughly ill that Britney Spears’ shaven twat attracted over 3.6 million search requests on google? A nation with Bible in one hand and lubricant in the other – ‘get a grip’ you mindless morons.

Was it Abraham Lincoln who made the shrewd political observation that “a drop of nectar is worth a gallon of bile?” Well, fuck that! I prefer the truth, warts and all – it is sweet lies that got all us dumb fucks in the predicament we’re in today (and the same to your grandmother too!)

The natural environment has entered terminal stage but our leaders continue to haggle over emission targets and commitments. The Bali conference is clear proof that non-representative government is dysfunctional and INEFFECTIVE.

Global problems require global solutions and the first expression of that is MARCHING ON OUR RESPECTIVE CAPITALS AND MAKING DEMANDS OR THROWING THE BASTARDS OUT OF OFFICE – we are the sheeple! (I bet that put the fear of God into them!)

I was gonna continue but decided that none of you are worth a pinch of shit, so go and get yourselves fucked! A task at which you all excel … “and I said to myself, what a ‘wonderful’ world!” (spew!)

Bob Dylan -- It’s alright Ma (I’m only Bleeding)

Darkness at the break of noon
Shadows even the silver spoon
The handmade blade, the child's balloon
Eclipses both the sun and moon
To understand you know too soon
There is no sense in trying.

Pointed threats, they bluff with scorn
Suicide remarks are torn
From the fools gold mouth
The hollow horn
Plays wasted words
That prove to warn
That he not busy being born
Is busy dying.

Temptation's page flies out the door
You follow, find yourself at war
Watch waterfalls of pity roar
You feel to moan but unlike before
You discover that
You'd just be one more person crying.

So don't fear if you hear
A foreign sound to you ear
It's alright, Ma, I'm only sighing.

"It doesn't really matter, it doesn't really matter at all" -- Queen
