Dream (3/21/2012)

Did you have beautiful Dreams, too?

I could tell that you did.

Dreams of beautiful things that will never happen, now. Still,

They loft me into warm air,
Into currents of joy and love,
Far above the Earth and
The mundane sorrows
To be found there.

There is no practicality, here.
No enemies,
No betrayal,
No infidelity —
Only the impossibilities that make a dream
Like some almost-heaven,

Where enemies love their foes,
And the betrayed love their betrayers,
And no one is
Lonely,
Or jealous,
Or cruel.

The calculus of Reality
Holds no sway here.

Executive Dysfunction Blues (or Inertia Blues)

MRI images of the frontal lobes of human brain with frontal lobes pointed out

I got the blues...

“Executive Dysfunction Blues” (or “Inertia Blues”)

[in the usual blues form]

………………………………

[da dun da dun]

The sink’s full ‘o dishes

[da dun da dun]

And they ain’t clean

[da da dun dun]

I must get out

[da dun da dun]

from behind this computer-machine

[da dadada…]

I got the blues
the executive dysfunction blues
Got cobwebs on my feet
Won’t be gettin’ up real soon

[da dun da dun]

Why’d I come here?
This kitchen’s a mess
I wanted something…
I’ll remember it later …maybe, I guess?

[chorus]

Like I was sayin’
…uh, what was I sayin’?
I had a point
It was probably a good one — my brain can disappoint!

[chorus]

I can’t find my kitchen
or my feet
how the heck
am I going to find somethin’ to eat?

[chrous]

Just one more click
no more research today
I’ll stop real soon
at least that’s what I’ll say…

[chorus]
[end]

Action Alert! Obama Trying to Turn Medicare into a Government-run Program

The Future of Obamerica

The Future of Obamerica

Obama is attempting to turn Medicare into a government-run program!

This is an outrage.  We must not let this happen,  it imperils us all.  Next thing,  we’ll be eating government cheese,  have no guns,   and be calling our mandatory gay spouses “comrade.”

Get your guns and go to the town hall.  And don’t be a pansy and not load your gun,  or engage the safety,  or carry on an empty chamber.   That would just be silly.  Listen to this guy,  he’s got it right:

Barak Obama Will Murder Your Grandma

And then he’s going to kill her.

Barak Obama hates the elderly, and now he is in a position to do something about it. Sarah Palin, our savior from the liberal, gay, socialistic, Nazi, fascist, communists has used her keen intellect to discern the evil plan being sold to us under the guise of “health care reform.”

No politician in history has ever before taken on the formidable over 55 voting block by trying to kill them off.  This must be the audacity he was talking about!

Ok, now the details:

The Death Panels are mandated to occur every 5 years — or less is one is elderly or ill. They will involve a panel consisting of 1) a government doctor, 2) someone to hold you down, and 3) an executioner. The “counselling” will take place at the top of a large building, yet to be constructed, called the Tower of the Sun (liberal architect Joe Teotihuacán is rumored to have been commissioned to design it).

The elderly and infirm will line up at the bottom of the steps and slowly proceed upwards, eventually to be judged worthy or not of continued life. As they ascend, rivers of blood from the unworthy will spill past on both sides in “blood channels” cut into the steps (the blood eventually drains into the reflecting pool in front of the Washington monument).

The “living will counselling” (a.k.a.  euthanasia) is performed by using a sharp rock to split open the chest cavity. Then, the still beating heart is removed and held up toward the sun, so that the president may take a bite out of it.

This is change you can believe in?

Paulson Buys Cake

(AP) Secretary of the Treasury Hank Pauson today announced his decision to spend the remaining $350 billion of the $700 billion bailout not on buying “distressed assets”, but rather on buying spongecake. When asked why Paulson responded, “’cause I feel like it. And what are you gonna do about it, loser?”
