A Heathen's Perspective

From politics to media, from music to spiritual matters, and from obscure issues to the latest hot button topics, comes the blabber from a true heathen, without regard to the breaking wind of socially-acceptable attitudes, yet with an almost sacred devotion to humor in the face of today's polarized, shout-down-your-opponents climate of fear and intimidation.

The Meanest Generation, Part Two

Bullies Who Whine In Advance of Being Found Out

Let's see here. The ReThugs run the Executive, Legislative, and soon the Judiciary at the federal level. They also have the upper hand at most state levels. Gosh, the bullies are in charge. They've been in charge for the most part since 1994. And in complete charge since 2000. And yet they continue to whine, as if the DemoNerds are persecuting them. Bullshit.

Normally, a bully will back down once he's been dressed down in front of his gang for all to see. This time around, the bullies are whining before they've been properly dressed down. Like a kind of Bully's Preemptive Pulpit. As for the press, we have a lazy, frightened, corporate mainstream media who not only lack the backbone to demand answers to tough questions, they've failed to catch BoyGeorge one-on-one in any unscripted moments. Moments which would reveal the true idiocy of his lack of knowledge concerning both domestic and foreign affairs.

So, what to do, what to do? For all of the activist groups involved in exposing the truth I say Hats Off to all of you. To all of the protest groups I say the same. But you're factionalized. You've diluted your message to the point of being unheard above the hollering hacks. Which brings me back to my own personal opinion.

Let the Bums Dig Their Own Grave.

Promote and exploit the moderate fissure in the ReThuglican Party.

Spread the truth in concise, easy to understand terms prior to 2006.

Demand that the Democrats grow a pair between now and 2006.

Promote the growth of local and state rebellion against absurd federal laws (as in Utah and "No Child Left Behind").

In my opinion, the only nonviolent way to kick these assholes out of office is to achieve these measures, and to break the back of incumbency, whether by matching their war chests, or temporarily imposing term limits until such a time as the electorate re-engages to the point of voting once again on a regular basis, from the local to the state to the federal levels.

Finally, listing every absurd claim by this government coupled with a real solution, item by item is necessary to stop the "Party of No" claims by The Boy & The Dick. Remind us all that the Party in power introduced the first tax cut during wartime in the history of civilization. Knock down the old saw that says "Better to fight them over there than to have to fight them over here." Guess what? We've already been attacked over here. Remember? And please, please don't let these fools continue to try and tie September 11th to Iraq. Use Frontline's "The War Behind Closed Doors" with old interviews featuring Perle and others back when they were so sure of themselves. Pull no punches. If necessary, shut down the Senate until the people demand action on their behalf. Then introduce practical bills designed to promote mulitlateral cooperation between intelligence, law enforcement, interpreters, and special forces to identify and neutralize all of the various small home-grown and Al Qaeda-aligned cells across the globe.

Our diplomats and foreign service personnel must be beefed up in order to accomplish these goals. Appointing hard-nosed anti-diplomats flies directly in the face of what is practically necessary to make real, long-term progress. It should be obvious to all but The Boy's team that what he and his buddies are doing is the exact opposite of what needs to be done. So spread the word, tamp down the tricky, cart before the horse whining, and expose the bullies while presenting real, practical solutions following each lie's exposure. Do it on the floors of the House and Senate. Lord knows the media won't do it for you. And remember, 2006 is right around the corner. Moderates? Stand up to the bullies. Truth tellers? Couple solutions with the exposure of all the betrayals of the American people. Voters? Demand paper ballots...and VOTE!

great piece monk!

this is a biggie: 'Spread the truth in concise, easy to understand terms prior to 2006.'

and so is this: 'Demand paper ballots...and VOTE!'

also this: 'Demand that the Democrats grow a pair between now and 2006.'

oh hell, they're all damn good! i thought maybe if i repeated them they might sink in to all!:O)

but the greatest point is that these bullies in office are whining before they're even hit! is this a ploy they use to make the others/dems look bad, or, is it really an opportunity for us to get them when they're down?! peace, bunkie.

Demand paper ballots! Absolutely! This should be at the top of the list.

Thanks, Monk!

I think my favorite is "Demand that the Democrats grow a pair between now and 2006."

Cause without that, the rest will go begging.

Thanks, Tranny. ;-)

Since everyone is quoting their favorite lines, let me list some of mine:

'Spread the truth in concise, easy to understand terms prior to 2006.'

'Pull no punches. If necessary, shut down the Senate until the people demand action on their behalf.'

'...don't let these fools continue to try and tie September 11th to Iraq.'

Why is it that the ReThugs seem/are so much craftier than the Dems? I think it's time to go on the offensive and beat them at their own game...and we don't have to stoop to their level to do it! Great piece, Monk!

BTW, have you opened something yet?
