a friend’s three year old boy mispronounced politics as plototics today……out of the mouths of babes.
Kim Williams on Politics; from her Book Of Uncommon Sense:
from the chapter entitled: The People Have To Do It-
“Nobody is going to do it but us.
You can’t wait for the government,
the system, our leaders.
It comes down to very ordinary people-
you and me.”- Kim Williams
blogging is to real writing
as foam is to beer.
poem by charles bukowski from The Flash of Lightening Behind the Mountain
the road to hell
if only there were more magic people
to help us get through
this strange life.
surpisingly there are a few.
the problem being that often
their magic doesn’t hold up
because they begin to
think it’s because
they are special
it’s almost an off-hand thing
like some damned crazy unearned
and when the magic people
begin to misuse their
begin to use it
in the wrong ways
and it’s one of the most
of the gods and the
and there is
than the once-gifted ones
still trying to work their
which never offers,
don’t worry- W and his crack team are on it. while henry paulson continues to try to prime the pump into operating again with our trillion, W is going to fix everything on Nov 15 by hosting a world leader summit in Washington. Maybe the europeans will have another idea that George and Henry can copy.
of course, by then most of us will be unemployed and too broke to care anymore. it just makes us all feel better to see that W is on the job. are you sure we can’t just hire colin powell to take over as a temp for a few months until Obama can get his bearings? and i’m pretty sure warren buffet can spare a few months to take over for henry at treasury- not that we’re losing confidence or anything….wait just a goldanged minute there, did i just hear the freight cars filled with nitroglycerin come uncoupled from the engine of our economy…and it it’s rolling downhill toward a sewer septic plant. uh oh this could be bad….meanwhile back at the ranch in sedona a seance is being held to summon the gipper from his tennis match with gorbachav in hell, but the devil won’t take a collect call and poor pretty palin is running out of clothes.
you can stick a fork in the GOP and McCain/Palin now. they are definitely done. when you combine Colin Powell’s endorsement along with Warren Buffet’s that is what is called running the table on the two greatest minds to tackle our two biggest problems- war and economy.
and for the love of god – will someone please have the decency to fill out a prescription for some lithium for this guy before he embarrasses himself in public again! and those eyes of his. is it my imagination or does he blink like the bug that will smith chased down in the original Men In Black?
