on the anniversary of "occupy"...

occupyoccupy

This is only a quick foray into the backwards history of this corner of the planet. These are small portions chosen during which our Western leaders have shat on our lap — as seen by Gus Leonisky and John Richardson — in their own words or helped by borrowing the thoughts of heavy thinkers of the past few years…

 

These few chapters were picked by chance or malchance as we ebb back in time, in disorder of appearance… May be we should start by the last one picked, placed in the middle of this amusing satirical sad collection, (say a message for amerika .....) and work our way backwards. May be not… If all this make you depressed, as one cannot escape the savage gloom and persistent stupidity of the idiots in charge, gesticulating in the “national interest” — meaning lining the pockets of the rich and promoting the philosophy of cannon merchants — take time to go and smell some flowers in your own garden. 

 

As our evangelical clowning ScoMo, goes from bad to worse — like a Pinocchio on steroid regressing towards becoming a rotten woody stump — we can only despair at the other half of this fair country that keeps voting for him and for his mob of idiots, by the miracle of a sport rorts, or other undemocratic fiddles… 

 

Here we are, quietly enjoying the sun downunder, and burning a few snag for a limited barbecue-for-two (how sad) due to Covid restrictions, Scumo goes on and rattle a nuclear sabre under the nose of bigger forces than he would ever understand, with the help of a couple of other hypocrites — an old “Patriot Act” devious bent man on the way to dementia and an animated yellow-fluffed raggy scarecrow… It would make you laugh, if this was unreal.

 

If you have the time and the inclination, you can read all the stuff written and/or posted here since the beginning of time itself...
