May the Farce Be With You

Isn’t it cool to be able to toss out greenback’s that aren’t yours – a “gift” to you from hard-working taxpayers, so that you can tend to things the taxpayers need, like roads that you can travel on without breaking the “johnson rod” underneath your car, to universal, or at least affordable healthcare, like most other industrialized nations provide their citizens, or real assistance for the poverty-stricken, the sick, the elderly, the mentally handicapped – you know, those fellow earth traveler’s, who, if not by the grace of God or the committee of dolphins who started this charade you might be experiencing as well?  Not to worry, your time too will come if Washington has any say in it…and they have a say in everything.

At today’s (Monday) press conference, Trump stated:

“we must have American dominance in space. Very importantly, I am hereby directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a Space Force as the Sixth Branch of the Armed Forces.” via zerohedge.com

That’s cool, the 5 branches of the Armed Forces today, haven’t laid to waste enough countries – Washington needs a 6th branch to counter any nation, asteroid or cheese glob in the skies who doesn’t groove to Washington’s jive of hegemony.

Seeking not only to have dominance over all lives on Earth, Trump said “we must have American dominance in space”.

The_ruins_of_the_American_missile_attack_on_Syria_03That’s sure to work out well. Let’s see, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen – all have thoroughly enjoyed American dominance since 2001. Cities and towns leveled, thousand upon thousands of innocent lives ended, countries in ruins – it’s all worked out rather well for Washington’s criminals. Why not extend all of Washington’s gifts out into space? After all, Washington has their shyte together and there isn’t a need or want of their citizens left unchecked, right?

Washington has run out of places to establish military bases here on Earth. With over 800 military bases around the world, providing military assistance to 73 percent of the world’s dictatorship’s, evidently Washington needs more launch facilities for new wars, thus the need to establish American dominance in space.

But you know how it is.  Life can get a bit boring when you’re the provider of most of the horseshit heaped upon innocents, so, you need to insure that you don’t run out of places to make future deposits, thus the need for American dominance in space. We’ve f-up’d much of the earth – time to f-up space.

But who cares. With a generation of millennials who expect to be millionaires who retire in their 50’s (without starting to save until they’re 36), to 50 year old’s and beyond trying to recapture lost youth and be a part of a generation they weren’t born in, with their unwanted displays of skin, heads buried in their electronic pacifier’s, and shout-outs to their children that they too can stay out until 3 in the morning and act as their children do, it’s a circus of freaks who ignorantly accept the BS, without even a clue of being bull-shitted, nor a care of the glorious deeds of a government of nutjobs who promise nirvana and deliver Gehenna.

“Washington has become our Versailles. We are ruled, entertained, and informed by courtiers — and the media has evolved into a class of courtiers. The Democrats, like the Republicans, are mostly courtiers. Our pundits and experts, at least those with prominent public platforms, are courtiers. We are captivated by the hollow stagecraft of political theater as we are ruthlessly stripped of power. It is smoke and mirrors, tricks and con games, and the purpose behind it is deception.” – Chris Hedges
