I have herewith decided that my politically motivated posts will be totally derivative of the outstanding political posts gleaned in my masochistic mastication of information from the front lines of the war between the mass media and my Political Animals blogroll to see who can lay it down clearly enough to get sleeping dogs on their hind legs. I have back-researched posts by most of the authors contributing to each of these blogs and have found sufficient integrity in their dealing with the facts for me to retire from the headache of back checking them further when I refer to a recent eloquent, relevant, poignant, important post whose consideration could benefit everyone … maybe.
That said, I must remark that in a survey of both the mainstream and intertube inputs, we are seeing a reenactment of the Pharisees and the Prophet in watching the Jabbalike establishment making massively clumsy, obviously defensive moves against this Jesuslike rabble rousing upstart who has dared to talk about possibilities outside the invisible prison and dared people to change themselves rather than remain addicted to the status quo being pushed by an exploitive system. Obama's biggest flaws, like his foreign policy advisers, his lack of protest during the marginalization of the candidates during the debates, his lack of speaking about the most immanent threat for anyone; the environmental crises — these I am almost willing to grant him in the spirit of playing the game just to get in the door. Anyway, where would one find a foreign policy adviser who hasn't been part of a bully regime? They all have been!
