Waco: A New Revelation [Video]

Filed under: Media, Politics, Principles, Viewing — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 3:09 AM (03:09)

On Monday, 19 April 1993, the federal government of the United States sanctioned and executed the murder of 86 people, including 27 children, by CS gas asphyxiation, automatic weapons fire and incineration, all to get at three adults who were wanted on nonsensical tax and paperwork charges related to firearms and explosives.

Requiring the Callow Performance

Filed under: Dark Side, Humor, Media, Politics, Principles, Viewing — mikewb1971 @ 11:58 PM (23:58)

I would have posted this for publication last week, but Sunday was, well, April Fools Day, and this is serious subject matter to be considered here.

Politicians need to learn their place, and stick to it.

Too often, they see themselves as “shepherds” of the general population, and that same population as “sheep” to be herded, fattened up, slaughtered and sheared as the “shepherds” see fit.

And so we have modern political campaigns, as various factions of “shepherds” compete for the favor and attention of the “flock.”

Thus, my proposal is as follows —

Anyone newly elected or appointed to public office should be required to first complete a performance akin to that of the fictional British Prime Minister Michael Callow in the Black Mirror episode “The National Anthem”.

Specifically — they should be required to have sexual intercourse with a livestock animal on live television before taking office.

Political Classholes of the Muslim and Jewish persuasions should be required to do the deed with pigs, just as Hindu applicants should be required to get their groove on with a bull or cow.

Don’t like it, Classholes?

Fine, then — walk away and decline to be seated as a public official.

Otherwise, if you want a “career path” of screwing over the Great Unwashed, it seems only fair and proper that you should get a taste of what it’s like before you’re enthroned in public office.

ALWAYS remember Lord Acton’s postulate from 1887. NO ONE, regardless of partisan affiliation, professed beliefs, office held, whatever, is immune to this —

I cannot accept your canon that we are to judge Pope and King unlike other men, with a favorable presumption that they did no wrong. If there is any presumption it is the other way against holders of power, increasing as the power increases. Historic responsibility has to make up for the want of legal responsibility. Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority: still more when you superadd the tendency or the certainty of corruption by authority. There is no worse heresy than that the office sanctifies the holder of it. That is the point at which the negation of Catholicism and the negation of Liberalism meet and keep high festival, and the end learns to justify the means.

John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton, 1st Baron Acton, Letter to Mandell Creighton (5 April 1887)

Parts in BOLD type are as found in the Wikiquote article

And who knows? Maybe the Political Classwipes might actually enjoy this particular prerequisite to taking office?

The Orville — “Majority Rule”

Filed under: Viewing — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 11:57 PM (23:57)

Tonight’s episode of The Orville, titled “Majority Rule,” wasn’t really original, more of a a combination of “Nosedive” from Black Mirror, and “First Contact” (perhaps bits of “Who Watches the Watchers”, too?) from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Still, it was entertaining, which is what TV is really supposed to be. Especially when the content is in the “fiction” category.

I didn’t think that I would like The Orville, as I wasn’t a fan of Seth McFarlane at all before tuning in — Family Guy and American Dad are thirty-minute snack and bathroom breaks, as far as I’m concerned.

That being said, I wasn’t a follower of Keanu Reeves until I saw the first Matrix flick.

Helloween – I Want Out

Filed under: Listening, Viewing — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 2:01 AM (02:01)

From our lives’ beginning on
We are pushed in little forms
No one asks us how we like to be
In school they teach you what to think
But everyone says different things
But they’re all convinced that
They’re the ones to see

[Bridge:]
So they keep talking and they never stop
And at a certain point you give it up
So the only thing that’s left to think is this

[Chorus:]
I want out — to live my life alone
I want out — leave me be
I want out — to do things on my own
I want out — to live my life and to be free

People tell me A and B
They tell me how I have to see
Things that I have seen already clear
So they push me then from side to side
They’re pushing me from black to white
They’re pushing ’til there’s nothing more to hear

[Bridge:]
But don’t push me to the maximum
Shut your mouth and take it home
‘Cause I decide the way things gonna be

[Chorus:]
I want out — to live my life alone
I want out — leave me be
I want out — to do things on my own
I want out — to live my life and to be free

There’s a million ways to see the things in life
A million ways to be the fool
In the end of it, none of us is right
Sometimes we need to be alone

[Solo: Kai/Both]

No no no, leave me alone

[Chorus:]
I want out — to live my life alone
I want out — leave me be
I want out — to do things on my own
I want out — to live my life and to be free

Monkeys Humping Sporting Goods

Filed under: Dark Side, Fun, Humor, Politics, Viewing — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 9:32 PM (21:32)

Over on Facebook, the proverbial football-humping monkey was invoked —

Just for grins and giggles, I ran a YouTube search for monkeys fucking footballs . . .

. . . but all I found was a monkey humping a basketball

. . . and another monkey humping a bowling ball.
