what is so tiring to me about political coverage is the the bloated rhetorical nothingness of the candidates’ speeches. the speech writers work in collusion with the networks to deliver content that can be controlled. this candidate isn’t biblical, this candidate isn’t conservative, this one cant be trusted, this one doesn’t know how to create jobs, this one is a Washington insider, this one will self implode… it is like watching the fucking gong show. will someone please ring the goddamn bell already?!
120 seconds of advertising and we are back.
this political entertainment sporting event, well, sneering at it is also a game. it, too, can get troublesome. so in seeking some polarity, i, too, get caught up in the political slogans of the day, the rhetoric, how it is ascertained and misascertained. And while i am listening to the radio wondering who the heck is reaching out(“it’s always something”"You give without grumbling for return? i dint think so. so shut the fuck up”) to the 28 percent of adults who live alone and have no kids or dependents….that 28 percent of all Americans? no candidate sounds like he is reaching out to me when they talk about family values, because what they have in mind for family values is judgmental towards those who live a solitary lifestyle . well, the event coordinators, the networks, speech writers, power players seem to forget the apostle paul’s admonition to remain single, but marry if you must. on the other hand, their rejoinder would be that they are fully accepting.
and therein lies the problem. THEY are accepting. Uh, waitaminnit chief, since this is my life, my world, i say that it is YOU who must be as accepting of MY ways as I am of YOURS. only then are we on an equal footing. but we are in a Puritan class struggle that has always existed in America. Puritan ideology has been taken for granted as American ideology. But like most countries, the more educated one becomes, the less inclined one is to believe in fables, though he still may maintain a spirituality, a connection that he sometimes can and sometimes can’t explain to the satisfaction of himself or others.
A sense of harmony exists among us, it just takes a lot of time because there are always new ideas, new paradigmatic shifts. the new is constantly supplanting the old. identities, personas, the moods and emotions that you have always known, have felt alone and in kindred spirit if you are lucky…
well as of today. march 1, 2012 Google has legally begun collecting more and more of all the different moods and emotions you have on display via all of your personas. yes, you are a statistical fountain of marketing psychology. Google wants to know you. google nice guy. just wants to buy you a cup of coffee and make you a little unpleasant with his company, but more amiable than Facebook or Apple. Honestly, Apple, how are you looking after shareholders with your predatory tactics and 100 billion in cash, of which you refuse to divvy even a tiny fraction thereof, to shareholders? Dirty tactics alienate everyone. and one day the snake is going to take back his Apple.
