Going In with TV’s, No Light Bulbs

Going In with TV’s, No Light Bulbs

            About Paki’s, light bulbs and TV’s.  I hear Pakistan’s got 40-70 nuclear devices, and two neat submarines to deliver them.

            In February 2009, at least three quarters of our televisions won’t work any more, because it has been legislated that air signals be digital.  I think this is corruption to sell more TV’s and the crooks win, and the poor person loses.  He must buy a converter or a new TV.  Maybe this makes it easier to track what you watch.

            Similar maybe is the fact that the light bulb has just been made illegal by an Act of congress.  The cheap vehicle that poor people light their worlds with is banned.  I think this is government oppression.  Lighting is going to be so expensive.  This may be about energy use but it costs the poor person and it’s not fair.  I don’t think global warming is real; it’s just an excuse to pass bad, oppressive laws.  If you take away the internal combustion engine, the economic forces MUST help the poor people first.  I think there can be controls that help alleviate hunger, disease, and homelessness.  Responsible breeding may be promoted and choice is allowed.

            Regarding Musharaf, maybe the whole country of India is mad at me because I said something good about him.  As if the US has a right to push them around, Musharaf did what they asked.  He did what they asked; he took off his uniform and scheduled elections.

            Why the change in story on how she died – bullets vs. bumping her head?

            Bhutto was pretty rough on Musharaf.  It could have been the army.  I read where Musharaf felt Bhutto double crossed him after he allowed her into the country without facing corruption charges.

            France, Britain, and the US governments have offered assistance.  Hilary said there’s no reason to trust their government, and she’s right.  I don’t know what to do because I don’t have Intelligence Advisors.  But I think we should be ready to secure their government and their nukes.

            Hardliners within the Pakistan regime are extremist.  Musharaf is trying to stay alive.  I’ve heard conflicting reports that he’s confronted the Taliban in the Northwest, and that he’s been too soft on them.

            I believe it was those hardliners who killed Bhutto, who said she’d work with just about ANYBODY to oppose Musharraf.  I ask in the context of life and death politics, did she deserve what she got?  I do know she was a very brave lady who wagered her life and lost.

            We’ve got military bases there already, but I don’t know what we can do.

            Also I’m in physical pain from sources that make me wonder how great our government is anyway.

sevnetus 2, Coin Toss Won

            So I did catch a ball game this weekend, and it ended with a blown call by a ref in black and white stripes.  This is one of the lessons kids should learn, that the officials or umpire, is very likely going to screw up the whole game.  Dan Dierdorf said, “This is not a democracy or a republic…,” speaking about replay review.  Oh, sports are fascist and gay, that’s the short version.

            It’s like a coin toss.  One team is going to win; one team is going to lose, so why subject yourself to all this intermediary aggravation?  There’s the image of two soldiers or sailors short on time and forced into a ménage a trois deciding what female body part they get with the call, head or tail.  And furthermore these types of events are gambled on to fixed results.

            Maybe I wouldn’t complain, but yes I am in pain.  And it’s the bad guys who must be combated with extraordinary means.  I’m conflicted.  Such a civil libertarian.  I think Bush was illegal when he was using telecommunications companies like ATT and AOL for information outside of FISA and outside of warrants.  Read Banned Books. But if the Mafia is running around causing havoc with their funny language, I’m good for one vote to take them on.  These are guys who impersonate religion.  One vote against Hilary who parodied the Sopranos last episode with a campaign advertisement – I don’t think its funny, I’m in pain.

            This is what Margaret Atwood meant in The Handmaid’s Tale, “Don’t let the bastards get you down.”  I’m in pain below and poisoned every day, every day a criminal assault.

            I’m speaking from a position that I’ve had a lot of crummy jobs in my life.  Now I have none.  I used to work for the government too.

            The pope wrote an encyclical about hope, and that hope dangling wrote me back is not a coincidence, it’s important.

            What happens when year after year all the money gets sent to OPEC countries for oil.  No wonder this government wants to take over a country (Iraq) for oil.  And things are not balanced.

             You writers can write, blog writers can blog and see that this essay strains at cohesiveness.  I usually pick tails.  And if I play it means I win both ways.  Because we are coming to take away the Mafia’s rights.
