~I felt like I should be speaking about my Faith and my Patience and so on…but I’m really not in the fucking mood.

I looked back under my old Live Journal tag ‘most humans are vile ignorant scum’ and found “Her Prophet Blah Blah” from Jan 18th, 2011, to wit:

~I am a venomous and hostile son-of-a-bitch and usually filled with a deep loathing and profound contempt for the vast majority of my fellow humans. Though I have asked E many times – and She has answered as many – most of the time I still find myself mystified as to why She choose me to follow this Path. On Good Days, it seems like a Redemption. On Bad Days, like a Punishment. But on the rest of the days it seems like there is precious little difference between those two conditions and all of that rather subjective.

It’s always a Lesson I suppose. *sigh* /end

These past few days is has seemed like those ‘latter days’ where there is ‘precious little difference between those two conditions’…and that has left me exhausted, sad and yet weirdly hopeful.

My Doubt and my Faith seem to be mud-wrestling, my sanity is in question and once again I am fearful that I simply do not have what it takes to 'stay the course’. But on the other hand, I am solidly into my twenty first year on this part of this Path and that should tell all of us something about my tenacity and outright fanaticism.

PS The other day, I wrote an angry note to Kat, who started me on this Path when I was seventeen and who should have become The Sisterhood’s High Priestess a half dozen years ago. But she turned out to be weak and shallow and too self-centered, so I just told her to fuck off.

~I confess that my first thought upon hearing that Santorum had suspended his campaign in the aftermath of his three year daughter having pneumonia was that her illness was a staged event designed to allow him to exit the race with sympathy and in a 'non-defeated' manner.

Though I felt slightly 'unclean' for thinking that, such is the poisoned state of politics here in The Republic that I suspect I'm not the only one who entertained such suspicions.

~Wherein the ABUSE and/or SUFFERING a person has undergone is considered by them to be so HEINOUS that this then justifies any and all behavior on their part, no matter how said behavior may hurt others, because THEIR DAMAGE has now become more important than anything or anyone else, at all times and forever.

~Oy....

I was up from 3:30am to 7pm yesterday, which is a long day for me, especially as Le-Le woke me up at that time to share this extension of the on-going clusterfuck with me. At the Sheriff's by 7am and then working the phone on and off until mid-afternoon.

A 'retaliatory visit' from Animal Control was also on the menu. [at least Le-Le was asleep for that] I explained what was going on [the AC officer knew the Deputy dealing with this..small town, ya know] and I showed her Flopsie, who is all sleek and plump, and she was like “Oh yes, they're fine” in a few seconds. We talked cats for a few minutes [she was a young 'cat lady' lol] and that was that.

Then talked with Kat for a couple of hours, which chilled me. [thanks, babe xoxox] I had talked with Ana Q yesterday, which also chilled me. [thanks to you too, doll xoxox] Overall both interfaces helped a lot. The Sisterhood, though still effectively unformed, is out there and essentially waiting for me to finish my Major Majickal Working aka The Explanation.

Anyway, I'm up for a while and will likely crap out again before dawn. Fuckin' fried.

And there ya have it...

~This is one of those days when I feel that I'd be better off if I actually was the deranged psychopathic monster that I've been accused of being. Granted, in that case there would be a minimum of two dismembered corpses buried out in the local desert 'with my name on them', but at least our bank account would be fatter.

~I was gonna rant about how most humans are either stupid or deluded. I had another bellyful of that this morning. But I'd be better off wanking to on-line porn. That at least would make me feel better for a while. *sigh*

But I'll just stick my brāne inside The Hologram instead and watch a cop show or two. Then I'll get back to work on The Explanation, which I suppose would make me an Optimist.

"The Hamlet chicken processing plant fire was an industrial fire in Hamlet, North Carolina, at the Imperial Foods chicken processing plant on September 3, 1991, due to a failure in a hydraulic line. Twenty-five were killed and 54 injured in the fire, trapped behind locked fire doors. In 11 years of operation, the plant had never received a safety inspection. Investigators believe a safety inspection might have prevented the disaster." via Wikipedia

~This example shows how Capitalism brings out the worst in human nature and ultimately sows the seeds of its own destruction.

An employer like Imperial Foods can drive out its competitors by ruthlessly undercutting them by exploiting workers in poor communities. This brings to mind Gwendally's statement about workers “not producing goods and services that are worth $10/hour to an employer.” That it is a true statement does not mitigate its basic amorality. But Capitalism places Ms Dally – and all other employers – in a situation where they must be amoral in order to survive economically.

For those who advocate Communism, all forms that I have ever seen are simply State Capitalism and only distinguished by operating more on Ideological Imperatives than on purely Economic ones. But both are amoral systems and in the end both destroy human beings with equal indifference. Capitalism is merely more effective in its methods of exploitation.

~I'm deep in one of my Most Humans Are Vile Ignorant Scum moods, which leads to Why Botherism. I'm dispirited and tired. I can't write and half the time don't care. If Le-Le didn't need me I'd likely slide into The Suicide Game. It's a game because I won't do it; I'd just pretend and that would give me a small respite.

In this place the whole idea of The Explanation seems like a nasty metaphysical joke, one designed to torment me like Sisyphus, a goal that eternally recedes toward the horizon. I feel like an idiot, like a fat old fool. My teeth hurt and I wish I could truly want to die...but I don't even have that sad desperate luxury.

Bagger Jackass: "As a far-right wing conservati­ve, I realize that there must be compromise­, and as a debt deal is reached (which it shall), the left and the right will come together to work out the *best* solution possible. Unlike most of you who are freaking out, I stand back and I thank God for the wonderful nation I live in where compromise is freedom, not Presidenti­al edict. Regardless of what they come up with, I'll support it. Compromise is the key to freedom, not one-party rule. I consider our President a Marxist, the Democratic Party Socialists­, but be that as it, we conservati­ves must meet them half way. Our party got us into two wars, Mr. Obama has gotten us into a third and now we have to work together to fix it."

Moi: "That anyone considers a Center/Rig­ht Corporatis­t like Obama - whose presidenti­al campaign got a QUARTER OF A BILLION DOLLARS from American Corporatio­ns - to be a 'Marxist', or even a Socialist, shows just how totally and utterly Mass Democracy has failed in this country. You and your ilk, sir, are The Doom of The Republic."

It's criminal the way politicians in Washington are ignoring the very real possibility that this budget deal could plunge us into another recession (just in time for Obama to lose re-election and Democrats to lose the Senate). From Bloomberg:

Congressional agreement on budget cuts could cause troubles of its own. Less spending by the Federal government would be “a real problem” for the economy, Guy LeBas, chief fixed income strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott LLC in Philadelphia, said in a July 29 interview on Bloomberg Television.

“We could see a growing risk of recession in the fourth quarter, early 2012, if in fact the federal government gets it together and makes aggressive budget cuts,” LeBas said.
Here's some pretty direct evidence that the stimulus did help the economy grow, and cut backs in federal spending helped the economy shrink (or at least grow at a smaller rate).

No one, and I mean no one, on the Hill, at the White House, anywhere is talking about what these grand bargains are going to do to the economy next year. I don't mean this as a personal shot, but it's easy to tell people to eat their spinach when you make a government guaranteed salary of $400,000 a year, or even a congressman's guaranteed salary of $174,000 a year.  It doesn't mean you don't care, but it does mean that the concern isn't personal, like it is for the rest of us.

If you're actually worried about how you're going to pay your mortgage, or feed your family, or stop your car from being repossessed, all this hysteria about cutting the deficit - and not just ignoring the economy, but actually proposing policies that may send us into another recession (a direction we're already heading) - doesn't sound all that grand at all.

Mark my words: No one, not Reid, McConnell, Boehner, Pelosi or Obama is willing to answer the simple question of what these grand bargains are going to do to the economy next year, and in the years to come.  And sadly, the media doesn't seem terribly interested either.

Moi: “It's manifesting in the global financial markets, that's for sure. As for the American People, I suspect most don't believe DC would allow a Default, that all this is 'political theater', though I think now it's starting to dawn upon many that the Baggers ARE crazy enough to force this.

I like to think that such will get them murdered at the polls next year, but the American Electorate can be pretty fucking stupid.”
