The corridors of Partisan-Zombieland are dark and fraught with obfuscation, but any who offers the key to truth and decent governance, does so at his peril.
"If you're not a Democrat, then you must be a Republican. Unless you're a Communist, or maybe an Atheist." (from: Every Patriot's Guide to Politics)
"Look! The President's naked!" (from: The President's New Suit)
It's been quite a while now that I've realized that partisan politics in America have become a delusion of the electorate and a facade for the elected, that the people we vote for serve interests other than those of the electorate, interests to the disadvantage of the citizen-voters if not of humanity.
I've always referred to these real but shadowy uncertified masters of the world's once oldest democracy as the "powers." But now a rare intelligent friend has sent me a clip that refers to these superiors of our elected government -- and in turn of us -- as the "owners." And that simple title explains the ominous power and the reality of the current plight far more appropriately than any other label heretofore conceived or to be imagined.
I decided to take this revelation to an audience of both Democrats and Republicans. This was a mistake, as I describe in the letter that follows to that rare intelligent friend of mine.
Hey, my friend -- re your clip -- I tried to explain the "owners" to the Republicans, and their response was that "our owners are better than
their owners." Then I tried to explain it to the Democrats, and their response was that "our owners are lesser evil
than their owners." Then I tried to explain that they were both the same owners
, and now each side accuses me of working for the other side's owners.
Then -- EUREKA ! -- it came to me. Not only does each party work for the same owners and both drinking the same kool aid, but one group the cherry kool aid of Republican partisan-zombie flavor, and the other the blueberry kool aid of Democrat partisan-zombie flavor -- but here's the important point: Neither side of Zombieland comprehends that their different flavors come from one and the same pot, in alternate flavor batches brewed by the very same owner-braumeisters.
Now I'm apparently the enemy of both persuasions of zombies working for the same owners, bad trouble from both zombie sides, that is actually only from the one and only real side, if you know what I'm saying.
I have always respected the wisdom that "the truth will set you free," but now I've become aware of new wisdom, that "you speak the truth at your peril in Partisan-Zombieland."
I do appreciate your clip, but admit to hesitate in passing it further in fear of being attacked by one persuasion of zombies or the other, programmed by the very same master-owners.
...Ducking away...Rafe, now more a Pilgrim than I ever imagined
Leaving behind a treacherous government now addicted to perpetual war, its limitlessly greedy and power-lusting masters, as well as the retarded albeit smirky Republicans and their evermore clonish Democrat colleagues, a braindead electorate (more...
