Reflections: The Thorn in Hillary's Side

 Slick Willie could pass himself off as a "good ol' boy" and connect with the masses. But Hillary just can't convince anybody that she is essentially anything other than an elite, Seven Sisters, Establishment team player. And that tune is just not playing on the people's jukebox any longer.

Rants: Hillary-Billary-Bop

 Hillary is so high above me on the ladder of class privilege that I could see up her skirt...if she weren't wearing pants.

Hillary is about as progressive as a gold-laden Brinks truck on a wet dirt road.

Trump is finished (yay)
and Bernie ain't gonna make it (aw):
The Oligarchs win again. 
The American't Sheeple shuffle
on to the slaughter house:
the Shirts and the Skins,
both sides wearing
tri-color buttons
and shit-eating grins.

Rodak's Writings: R.I.P David Bowie

Dark Dawn: 1/11/16

There had been signs and portents for a week.
Then the news rolled in all the way from 1947
like a glaze of ice on the rotation of the cybersphere,
like the Alberta Clipper that raged on the day
I was born in frozen Michigan:  Winter 2016
finally speaking in its natural tongue.

And now January, its white ribs exposed
as bitter, calcified truth, points an icy bone
and rattles off a merciless axiom:

As David Bowie can suddenly die, so too can you

Rants: Why Trump Will Win

The average American does not really believe that the government is "of the people, by the people, for the people." Neither, though self-identifying as "Christian," does he believe that Jesus is God, or that there actually is a personal God. The average American is, in truth, a nihilistic wanker, whose main interests are, in order of priority, a bellyful of sugary, salty "food" and a head full of phantasmagorical, Hollywood-produced garbage and intoxicants. Trump has got it made.

Reflections: Good-bye, 2015

If I were going to make a New Year's Resolution, it would be to revive this blog and spend less time on Facebook.

But I'm not going to make a New Year's Resolution.

Fuck it.

Happy New Year, nobody.

Rodak's Writings: The Hunger - a poem

The Hunger

Absolutely everything
is significant.
Absolutely nothing
is intrinsically meaningful.

Mind solders the connections
to make constructions
agreed upon as Real.

Existence is art:
the antidote, 
the alternative 
to nothingness.

But art is not Being
and the Universe
pays nothing for the work.

Be Real:
take an artist to lunch.

Reflections: The First GOP Debate

This is how my friend, Robert A George, ranked the opponents after last night's debate:
 1. Kasich
 2. Christie
 3. Rubio
 4. Paul
 5. Bush
 6. Trump
 7. Walker
 8. Carson
 9. Cruz
10. Huckabee

I think this is a pretty good take. I, however, was not as impressed with Rand Paul as Robert apparently was. I thought he came off looking like a prematurely aged, spoiled adolescent. I'd put Trump where Paul is, and rank Walker and Paul at 9 and 10 respectively. I think Carson at 8 is spot-on. I expected him to be better; he was lame. Ditto, Cruz--but I'd move him and Huckabee up by virtue of ranking Walker and Paul beneath them. Kasich is probably charismaticly challenged, but overall he was the least scary of the group. A Kasich-Fiorino ticket would be the one that I believe would draw the least scorn from the rest of the world. Perhaps it will emerge that Fiorino belongs on the top of that ticket.
