"Dogs in Istanbul are so bored that they would welcome a heap of fleas to scratch themselves'
From the Travels in Turkey Guide, 19th Century
Let's scratch, people. The MSM had released the fleas over the bored liberal public and we all are up there in paroxysm. We feel so empowered. Congressman Todd Akin said some usual nonsense about women and our ladies- in- TV are right on target. They are mad as Hell. They demand his withdrawal from the race. The pop their eyes out and move their bared shoulders in a flirty disgust. Thus they kill two birds in with one stone because there's nothing more appealing than a woman in a sexy dress while being genuinely appalled about something. Most of those women know that the primary their quality is internal indifference, so they never miss a chance to look appalled or disgusted or even concerned. And men, they are up in arms too! They, of course, are not that stupid as that congressman; they know the drill, they have been trained quite enough to express genuine anger towards that atrocity; boy, we all are scratching ourselves.
Funny thing but we did not do that all before. Like when Congresswoman Bachmann impressed us with her eternal wisdom. Or when Hillary said that famous phrase about her coming and him dying. Or when Hillary had to apologize for expressing horror when watching on TV the killing of someone wedonotknowwho. Or when we heard of Bradley Manning and how he was treated. Or when the Dakotas so -- called laws were passed. Or when we had recently the London Olympics while Syria delivered about 1000 dead per day. Or when we heard about drones killing children and women- empowered to become drone pilots. Ah, empowerment, a really word of words. We still call "our men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan' heroes, while maybe the only thing they are together in is malicious misery. But NO, we don't scratch ourselves about that. Our rash is p*ssy Riot.
OMG! The whole Hell breaks lose. Three visibly mentally disturbed women performed a bizarre sacrilege in the primary Russian House of worship, were apprehended and tried in the open court for disturbing the peace. They were sentenced to 2 years in minimal security colony and the Church vouches for them, so they most likely will be pardoned. Yes, it was a tough court, Russian style with them in a cage with glass walls for all to see, yes, many Russian people were outraged. But here- oh boy, we howled! Firstly we called them feminists and activists. They were neither. Russian women do not consider them that way. Their nickname in Russia is "berserk pussies', which says a lot. Second, we have their speeches, prepared as if they had been PhDs- so many historical references that it was enough for three theses. Not that they were that educated before. There is even a reference to Dostoevsky, his civil death trial for apparently " just participation in some discussions.' Dostoevsky was a deeply religious man and if only he could hear who used his name in vain" Well, we here don't really care; fairly recently Laura Bush, our chief librarian had a temerity to call Dostoevsky her favorite author.
Wow, those Russians, they are really disappointing. Despite liberals in power they somehow don't care for empowerment. Now we are going to fix that- Pussies will become as popular as Beatles. Suddenly their music has flavor and all women should use them as role models. No, they should not use Anna Politkovskaya- she was too radical. They should not use women of Haiti as examples- they are too French. They should not us Lynn Stewart- she is too old. The should not use Cindy Sheehan- she is too angry. Girls, welcome Pussies as your saviors and examples for life.
Russia is not a good place, far from it. But our selectivity is stunning. Colonel Kvachkov had been accused rather clumsily of an assassination attempt at Russian oligarch. The trial was a mockery of justice and we here- not a word. Of course, colonel is a nationalist, he hates America, where women and men turn on and off their empowerment when MSM sprays them with fleas. Here we know the drill: we know when to rise up and when to lie down in total subservience. We know the game. Colonel does not know the game and that's why Pussies have our sympathy, not him.
It is very difficult to state an inconvenient truth to my fellow- liberals and progressives but sometimes tough love helps: you suck, people. Maybe it is better to state that we suck, people, because I do not distance myself- I am a part of it. While the forces of darkness are organized, ready and deadly and work in unison we here ONLY react to fleas those forces spray over us to keep us occupied. And they succeed: we adopt their way of thinking. We believe that yes, there is a war on women (in reality it is the war on independent people), that feminists are real (they are not), that women must be empowered (good people must be empowered, not just women), that those horrible dictators deserve the wars we instigate (in reality we just kill a lot of women and children and bring other dictators to power), that we here know better about freedom and democracy than others ( not at all, folks), etc., etc. When the right- wing cohorts whisper to us that we are better than others we melt from that cheap flattery and unleash our power at the direction they show us.
Shame on us, folks. We still had not organized. We still had not condemned the horrible wars. We still support Condi and Hillary. We are Ok with drones. We don't care for women, otherwise we should have come up in millions demanding universal healthcare and special package of laws protecting childhood.. We let our kids to be drugged by doctors at the very early age. We have juvenile diabetes. We send our daughters to kill people. We praise wrong qualities; an overwhelming majority of our young people, especially women are incapable of deep feelings- they are empty shells. We surrender our kids to the police even for small fights. We castrate our souls. We are cowards and we howl only when we are told to.
Folks, forget the Pussies. Forget Todd Akin. If you want real models for your daughters, take them to Salem, MA, to the memorial of Salem Witch Trial. None of those women confessed of being a witch and one of them, Martha Corey denied the very existence of witches. That was in 1692. You know, I really doubt that Martha Corey would approve a carnival show of Pussies. She was an honest person.
All of the above I wrote out of genuine concern. We live in serious times and we need serious people. You, people are the ones. Please, be serious.
