Schadenfreude ? Or Gotterdammerung ?

Whirling around in this ancient brain-pan is a huge question that readers of this corner might want to ponder also.

IF...Obamacare passees and gets signed into law and the Dow and NASDAQ tank back to 5,000 and 500 respectively, what will the reaction of the clueless megalomaniacs be ?

? Or, Gotterdammerung ?

Will the conspirers and liars dance jigs and do intricate gavottes over the prostrate Wall Street entrepreneurs and lowly 401K holders ?

Or will they shrug their collective arrogant shoulders with hollow chortles and sink ,or SLINK, (more slowly) into the Autumn ooze of Western civilization ".

I can hear Robinson Jeffers singing his litany to the Big Sur cypress survivors in the subtle hypocrisy of a Pacific Dawn:

"...Be in nothing so moderate as in thy love of "man", clever servant and insufferable Master.... THERE is the trap that catches noblest Spirits !That caught, and killled, they say, God when He walked the earth...."

Scary and Deplorable

If I may, with humility, allow me to just parse this for you. It took me 36 hours to cool off after the first shock.

The AssPress carried a story Saturday out of Teheran, Iran allegedly written by someone whose name translates into "Allah is Great" in English averring that the USA "official VERSION" of Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center is "a fabrication and a lie".


That, notwithstanding the fact that CNN showed the second plane hitting the second tower for millions (billions ?) of world TV watchers.

The authority for that statement, quoted by the AssPress, which emphasized the words "U.S. official version" was of course, Moomoo Imadinnerjacket, the lunatic Persian president.

Then on Sunday, another International News Media Giant, Al Jazeera, in reporting that Iraq citizens dismissed Baathist terrorist bombings that killed 38 to vote freely and innumerably are now "CONDEMNED to Democracy...."

(My capitals for emphasis added in both cases.)

Here we can isolate the situation that obtains on our little blue marble of a planet.

Two tyrannical news-gathering organizations are spewing toxic nonsense and spurning a responsible analytical report to kiss political arse.

And, no matter whether you live in Doha,Qatar or Denver / Kansas City, it's deplorable...and scary.
