the impending collapse of everything we know and love is still upon us. our new president would have us all belly up to the washington dc bar and order up a double shot of my baby’s love. no, wait that’s an old song by the mccoys. sorry. but it might not be a bad idea any the ways. at least it or that will keep you warm and distracted for a spell. something we all might need.
the latest stimulus package party is still being catered by the chinese. we are running up one hellacious bill with those folks, my friends. one needs to wonder when that bill is going to come due and just what the fuck we are going to have to do to get out from under the bill.
it’s not unlike running up a massive visa or mastercard bill then playing the slip and slide with their ‘no interest’ money to pay off one bill or a portion of the bill or another bill. all the while saying to yourself, i’ll pay them off eventually. thing is most folks never do who find themselves in that sorta trap. of course, there’s always bankruptcy. however, the way i was raised that ain’t an option. but i digress.
sure, uncle sam isn’t or can’t go insolvent and declare bankruptcy. he can just continue to print money. more money for more bailouts. hell, he can even bail himself out while sending us to the poor house with piles of useless monopoly money. yes, i’m on that riff again. maybe if i and a few others keep it up somebody will start listening and/or pay attention.
kids, the titanic is sinking. the nimrods in dc can toss all the money they want at the sinking ship of state but it ain’t gonna stop the water from rushing in and the ship from sinking.
most of the pols in washington are like the pols here in california. oh, the school system sucks. i know. let’s throw more money at it. we’ll give em bushel baskets full of cash. that will fix things. no, it hasn’t. the vast majority of kids are still morons and the fools they send the money to pour gas on it, set it on fire, then they ask for more money.
money for nothing and your chicks for free. that might as well be the new u s of a motto. because that’s what all this amounts to. no more ‘in god we trust’ or ‘e pluribus unum’ or any of the other latin phrases that appear on our monopoly money.
what follows has been around for a while. a friend sent it to me in an email. i didn’t write it and i have no idea who did. but it’s one of those things that rings of truth and pain…
Lawrence Livermore Laboratories has discovered the heaviest element
yet known to science. The new element, Governmentium (symbol=Gv), has
one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198
assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.
These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which
are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called
Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be
detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into
contact. A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that
would normally take less than a second, to take from 4 days to 4
years to complete.
Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2 to 6 years. It does not
decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of
the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact,
Governmentium’s mass will actually increase over time, since each
reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming
This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to
believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical
concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical
When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium
(symbol=Ad), an element that radiates just as much energy as
Governmentium, since it has half as many peons but twice as many
wake up, america.
