A Day In New York-15th April 2013 by The Eyes Of New York

'We love this work- to show the things the way they are'
K. Marx, F. Engels

' Average man is a coward'
Mark Twain

I hope this lovely girl on the photo plays Beethoven.  There is a song of his about a traveling musician who asks for bread.  You ask fro bread these days and you receive a DRONE.

1. Obama  had invented a new kind of Bills- the ones of good intentions but no teeth, all hat and no cattle. The Healthcare  Law without a universal  health insurance became what it was intentione- a horrible bureaucracy burden and a tool to dismantle the Medicare. The so - called Gun Bill was  sooooo protective  of the 'innocent'  gun - owners that it lost its meaning and was rightfully defeated  as useless.  If Bush called himself a compassionate conservative, Obama can be called  a conservative liberal, who does one step forward and two steps backwards.

2. US had coerced Israel to bomb Syria- that was apparently the result of the Obama's visit to Israel.  Syrian scenario is the final destruction of the socialist - based  structures in Balkans and Middle- East; that is the only goal and it is directed by the Saudis who use the US and others to reign supreme over the religious groups in their  domain.  US and others are the patsies of the Saudis, so become Israelis but  blind hate towards anything socialist   dictates  what happens. Obviously, Obama is showing to the world  the Droneface of his. The Spanish Civil War scenario unravels on the Syrian soil and we watch the same once again.

3. In the US there is no left and right. The so- called liberals and so- called conservatives ( none of them really exist as movements of any kind) are  married by the US MSM  into a lesbian marriage, the purpose of which (per media intent) is the perpetual talk and  petty bickering. The couple is a sort of  TV- couple- they are allowed to  bicker about anything  but things important and  they are strictly controlled  so that they both should never  admit that they are both screwed. They are perpetually happy in  exercising their  right  to feel good about themselves.

4. Speak for yourself is a motto of the days.  As soon as no citizen is allowed to say ' we' but only 'I' then the  MSM dictates who  the 'American people' are. That simple.

5. Gore Vidal said that Americans  were not stupid but ignorant beyond belief. In the country  where  the word ' library' is  associated with GW, where a person who kills 400 birds in one day becomes a VP, where another person who seemingly has mental problems   becomes a VP candidate and gets a standing ovation at the NRA gathering, where DRONES are 'debated' instead of being destroyed, where  before any trial people are proclaimed as guilty, where a former  Chief Money officer says that 'his world model was wrong' and gets away with it- in such country why are we surprised that we get madmen killing kids?

6. The faces of our politicians had never been  shiny with intelligence but now they  can scare a Little Red Hood. Every time I see those faces  (not only US but  English, German, French, Russian, etc.)- I feel as if I am in the Hotel Transylvania.

7. Americans are obese not because they eat wrong food. They eat bad food.  The food in the US due to the way it is stored is never fresh.  It is dead on arrival. It does not have any of those nutrients announced. That is why people usually eat more. Also they  have a very bad way of life- full of cars and sedentary activities for which they compensate by hysterics of fitness.  Most of the Americans  are in a state  perpetual anxiety and that results in consumption. No, we here are not obsessed- we are possessed by those who want money and the only way to make money from people is to make them squeal.

8. More and more people are in fact  dependent because  there is less and less meaningful work. Men are hurt especially - they degrade, become  nuts, go berserk.  In the eyes of men I meet desperation  is the primary message. Most of them are not that bright and they are  not  very good people either. But they were willing to have something  meaningful. Instead they are offered hysteria, bad beer and guns. Good luck in that department.

9. American educational system  cannot be repaired for the simple reason- Americans  do not want that. The system produces imbeciles in enormous quantities but that is a criteria  for  the  success now. The simple solution- make all public schools centralized- will never be implemented because our school boards  will never let it happen.

10. Our government  has lost any ability to do good. It can only do harm.  So does Congress.  We though resemble more and more the cattle herd which just  awaits for a new crack of a whip to moo and rush  in the direction ordered. There is no water and not much food and the slaughterhouse is quite nearby. Who really cares how the cowboys look like?
