Twittering Nabobs of Negative Twits
What happens when a quitter only has Twitter? Do quitters become winners, while the twits await the quitter to Twitter?
Yup, I’m afraid so.
For more answers to life’s complexities, try waiting on a Twitter from Ashton Kutcher. He’s busy training for the Palin Apocalypse…so don’t wait too long…but do reload.
Power does not rest with the electorate. It does not reside with either of the two major political parties. It is not represented by the press. It is not arbitrated by a judiciary that protects us from predators. Power rests with corporations. And corporations gain very lucrative profits from war, even wars we have no chance of winning. All polite appeals to the formal systems of power will not end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. We must physically obstruct the war machine or accept a role as its accomplice.
The above passage was written by Chris Hedges. For those of you still awaiting a twitter from the quitter, go reload and keep waiting. For those of you still waiting for President Obama to stop being the better Bush, go reload and await Kutcher to Twitter, because the quitter will Twitter and Obama will not.
As has been touched on here many times…it’s the wars stupid. It’s also the war crimes, the Wall Street, the K Street and whatever goddamn street brought back NKOTBSB. I’d almost rather drink a Bud Light Lime with Trig Palin, than ponder the ramifications of a world that desires more NKOTBSB.
But Chris Hedges does what I can not. He knows where a, comma, goes, and wants to attract your attention away from the Kutcher, the quitter and the Twitter. It’s the wars. It’s the Boeing. It might also be NKOTBSB.
We can wait on Twitters, quitters or President Obama’s babies suddenly realizing that Dad has been lying to them…or we can take comfort in the fact that humans have been making wine for more than 6 thousand years.
I prefer to take comfort in the fact that wine having been made by 6000 year old humans, who were not fighting off dinosaurs…makes the quitter Twitter even less.
Go read some Hedges and enjoy your Tuesday.
Trig and I will drink to that.
