I didn't watch last night's debate.
could be disingenuous and fake it by, in Romney-style, retroactively
watching video, read the summaries in the media, on Twitter and
elsewhere and pretend I was there the whole time as if I was an NBC
sportscaster doing canned commentary during the Olympics. But I've tried
to be honest with my readers even if it embarrasses me. After all, with
no journalistic credentials, my word and my reader's sense of trust in
me is all I have. So I'll just start this post right now with an
admission that I wasn't interested in last night's debate and didn't
watch it, not even on video.
So what was this
otherwise politically-engaged wonk doing while Obama was doing the
Hulk-Against-Loki thing in Hempstead, NY, my old stomping grounds? On
Youtube watching videos of Bob Dean, former Command Master Sergeant,
talk about a world that we don't even know exists, a world in which each
year a trillion and a half dollars of our treasure is going into a
black budget to fund reverse-engineered extraterrestrial technologies,
programs and organizations that Obama's government won't even hint at,
they despise our opinion, and us, so much.
But that's grist for another mill.
didn't watch the debate last night because #1 a blind man could see
that Romney was going to come prepared with another pack of lies and #2,
Obama, knowing he'd fucked up the first time, was going to come out
swinging against Romney and make it personal.
words, it promised a long time ago to be a stereotypical political
debate complete with the mud-slinging and dead-catting that Ambrose
Bierce wrote about a century ago in The Devil's Dictionary
. And, as with so many other people, I'm sick and tired of it.
today I've been getting a slight bulge in traffic from people from all
over the world looking for information on Romney and Google and other
search engines are sending them here. And all they have to read are now
non-topical posts I'd previously written. Plus, I'm sure a few of my
readers, maybe more, are curious about what my take is on last night's
debate. So here they are.
My choice for President, the
person I'll still likely vote for, Dr. Jill Stein, got arrested along
with her running mate last night in Hempstead for having the temerity
for trying to crash the party and the Powers That Be just couldn't have
that. So, my pick for President was sitting in a jail cell last night
while the two assholes going at each like the two rats in Winston
Smith's face cage deserved to be in prison.
Romney's a tax dodger who took full advantage of that tax amnesty from
three years ago and Obama is a war criminal. That's all there is to
know. That's all there is to see. You can talk until your face is a
right proper shade of Democrat blue about Obama's endless tepid reforms
and it still doesn't justify murdering scores, if not hundreds, of
innocent women and children in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and God
knows where else. If you vote for Obama, you're doing so with blinders
on. You'll be supporting a current war criminal over a future war
criminal. Blinders vs binders.
However, it's important
enough to know, and one needn't have seen the Pier 6 brawl in Hempstead
last night in real time to know that Mitt Romney is a lying piece of
shit who'd actually referred to women being in binders. If there's a
corporate gene in the human genome that makes carbon-based humanoid life
forms heartlessly corporate and with all the sociopathy that goes with
it, then Willard Romney is a guy who'd gotten a double dose. I've been
saying for four years now that if Romney ever gets elected, he'll be the
first chief executive to deliver his inaugural address as a Powerpoint
presentation and fax his State of the Union Addresses to Congress.
lied about his tax plan, he lied about the president's remarks on Libya
on September 12th (after he himself had fucked up everything in his
bumbling attempt to capitalize on the deaths of four Americans), and,
with the sense of emperious entitlement that, from his birth, has been
part and parcel to what passes for his character, he interrupted the
moderator Candy Crowley on many, many occasions because no one who's
worth less than a quarter of a billion dollars should interrupt someone
Obama had every right to attack Romney for his
vulture capital past and for shipping jobs to China. But Obama was
merely telling us things we either know or should
Romney. And he dead-catted Romney without once mentioning Bainport or
the Sensata workers who are even as I write this getting arrested by the
Freeport police just as Jill Stein got arrested last night in
Hempstead. Sensata is a third rail for both parties and both candidates
and, as usual, the working man gets the shaft.
watch the debate last night and opted for truth, forbidden fruit that
either man would deny us, forbidden knowledge that even a temporary
leader in office for 4-8 years would be denied by captains of industry
and the Joint Chiefs. I'm tired of this election cycle, tired of how
they've extended it so that the incumbent has to spend the last two
years of his first term running for office again, tired of the endless
debates, pushed-up primaries and caucuses of the challenging party and
tired of listening to corporately-owned MSM talking heads telling us
about body language and what Romney had for dinner before each debate.
The important takeaway
from this is that Bainport is radioactive and neither man has the
stomach nor the heart to fight for these people because the populist
surge they'd get even just for mentioning them isn't worth enough to
risk going after.
