Politics Makes A Difference, When?

  The RT headline Medvedev calls to purge United Russia of ‘accidental’ members pictures the Russian Prime Minister, Dmitry Medvedev looking as if contemplating his next moves as head of the parliamentary majorityUnited Russia Party.
  Friday the Presidium of The Party’s General Council was expected to elect the head of the CEC by a direct and secret vote for the first time. Meeting with candidates for the head post of United Russia’s Central Executive Committee (CEC), RT states, the Prime Minister again decided to promote internal democracy and call for a major party renewal, which included purging all those who blacken its image. Which partially brings to mind, a generation back when there were attempts to relieve The Communist Party of their dead-weight.
Medvedev said, “There must be responsibility before the party and this means that there must be responsibility before the people who trust the party.” Was he born yesterday, reviving tired political rhetoric as if running for the President of the United States or something? What happened to becoming the brand new Russia? “Trust the Party?” You have a commission deal, Dimitry, to sell the Brooklyn Bridge and Kremlin wholesale? I know, maybe the Kremlin.
  “Our members and leaders are not at all without sin,” the PM added. “We must make decisions if there are problems. If a certain number of people who got into the party’s ranks by chance are behaving in a way that they blacken everything in the party structures, then we must get rid of them.”
  What? Otherwise the captain goes down with the ship? Come on. There’s no plan in motion for anything similar to a weak party giving up or sharing control, yet. It’s paramount The Party is a well oiled, efficient machine? It’s already majorly greased. You can’t have assorted voices not in complete agreement? What party politics compromising an agreement is all about?
  Is that what was wrong? The Communist Party’s private disagreements before the fatuous announcements kept them from being a smoothly-run KGB machine? So now that problem is fixed from the inside, it might as well be polished from the outside too? Will Russia’s rulers ever tire of flexed muscles in victory?
  Medvedev said the elections to the top posts were a symbol of United Russia’s renewal. Telling party activists, “I have always thought, and this is still my sincere position, that competitiveness is always better than someone’s dominance, even when we understand that the man who is taking the responsibility has good starting opportunities, respect and so on.”
  The United Russia leader also stressed party renewal was not simply to show some movement, but better adjust to the changing world. Dmitry Medvedev became a member of United Russia in May 2012, shortly after freshly-elected President Vladimir Putin appointed him prime minister. Almost immediately after joining, Medvedev was elected party leader, replacing Putin, who is not a member because of his support for the idea of a non-partisan president. What? Like a monarch or just another life-long bureaucrat running a department such as, what, sanitation, for instance, except this one the whole world knows is the kingdom of Russia? Come on Vladimir, as is usual, and always been throughout Russian History. It’s your move. You did so well this week announcing your favoring some amount of compassion from the Court for the Pussy Riot Women. There’s a lot more to do in Russia than leave a democracy, but from where you sit that’s your legacy. Whichever move you choose.

An Address The Nation Speech (1/8/2019)
  Addressing the nation is at the heart of our president's lament. That listeners' non-adherence is just a huge communication gap bridged by repetition. If this first such address weren't so importantly meaningful, the reeking from blind self-promotionalism is more than exposed enough. Maybe our president isn't just pretending our formal stances shield us from every repercussion? It makes sense enough of the country didn't understand a Teflon Don's result. Style mattered over substance after all. Our country's so great, where might brazenness get us after all? A ruthless world requires tough choices. Some down home despotry thrown into a political circus of such astronomical proportions, no satellite'll ever receive the country the complete picture anyway. No how. No way. Yee-haw!
  I wish our president's Tuesday, 9 PM EST, 1/8/2019, strategy was of more substance than just the no shame back-patting that accepts no responsibility for why so many immigrants fled collapsed social structures in the first and second places. All for the glamour of war with ourselves is the history of humankind. Even the police don't need a better run police state that's madness. Whereas only the hugest scapegoat of all is worth your majesty's attention apparently? Crime's Shrine. Amen?
  Symbolism shouldn't be over anyone's head, Mr. President. But reducing the simple to extra-ordinarily simple is too sad. Disparity ruling as, at least, half the time, it's enforced. Upward mobility is supposed to raise everyone up. Not leave the bottom the pits. The wall already up that shouldn't be. Like any other environmental tragedy, just further shame.  
  It's like we're pinching ourselves at a decade's end. Because, as time goes by, the accumulation feels more acute when one's become the next another. 
  Don't Be Anyone's Sycophant is certainly redundant on my part. Like an unswerving political message hardly anything can actually, really, be done about. As noted, in these pages, before, a difficulty in Criminal Enterprise System reform is the strong belief in adhering to an aggressively flawed enforcement strategy that real life can only accept as inevitable. But our adeptness, at financing crime, is put to shame by the result of our not solving it. 
  New York's, once, Governor Gateway, finally, January 17th, announced his legalized marijuana support. Shunting the sign that this will completely undermine the moral fabric of humankind. Of course, not yet, is this an all-out assault on ending a contrived illegal façade that's darkened cultural dignity across the world. Now fronted by the poster person for I'm so good I've never done drugs mantra. What any know-it-all doesn't know could fill the universe. In fact there's evidence the nation's #1 celebrity has never empathized well with all that much, except for the world's ripeness for exploitation? 
  Perspective, Mr. President? Minds need the world's cultures poll-vaulting past our incredible hump of scapegoating happiness, that for some is all too plainly viewed through a big screen of outright denial. Bah. Humbug. Nonsense these idealists are more patriotic than those. The public's sold political checkers, while the performance hoax pretends chess.
  What if Senator Mitch McConnell suddenly, and for a period of time, stopped explaining everything was "for the American people?" Would lives carried along considering those words stamped gospel, also suddenly be more broadly thought out concerning what's fashioned? Rest that whole if you think we represent being too American then you're not American enough attitude?   
  Collusion's beaten to the punch. War, not war, is hardly a question any longer. Too sophisticated for that. Us. The presidents. Whoever, whichever. Modern times has spawned the attitude of our being above sad, bad results. Too smart for their own britches has all of us caught by their own petards. Which includes the President of the United States too. Sir.
  Surviving getting by's pushed to the max. And as long as all the volatility's everyone else's fault, facing anything's just a backhanded slap. Ba dump bump. 
All Is Discombobulated For New Year's Day  
  Christmas has as many different meanings as there are people and interpretations. Dwarfing the martyrdomizing of the US Presidency that's put to further shame in relation to those election campaign boasts about President Obama's wasteful spending playing golf. No one before has so brazenly flaunted the perks of office? Judging by what presidents have done after their terms in office, is the actual plan symbolically representing the richest man on earth, ever? Such a sad reminder that at Christmas-time, something was amiss in River City. Perhaps the ageless musical, Pride Goeth Before A Fall
  Among things to be thankful for are reminders lying well comes with wealth, or at least outright viciousness, through laughter and smiles, or feigned serious expression, is satisfyingly refreshing? 
Happy Christmas and Merry New Year as per usual.

ARROGANCE DOES NOT BECOME US

My 2019 Suggestion For 
New York City's DeBlasio Administration
  Cut this nonsense whereby the ASPCA etc. encourages citizens in all the various neighborhoods to learn how to trap and neuter feral cats. All the while saying the rat problem will be dealt with through better poisons. There should be a city-wide program neutering these cats and providing them with sufficient housing while they perform a community service. All homelessness requires shelter. Period. And cats are good for the environment, but not as scapegoats for our self-centered preoccupations. 
  Also of note, while not perfect everywhere, there's a preponderance of metal grates and plates in the road leveled to the road surface. Well, at least more than there used to be when flat surfaces were much more rare. Some jobs require larger asphalt ridges. But generally I'm noticing more smooth surfaces when they practically didn't use to exist. And while the mayor might not be personally responsible for that specific quality improvement, I appreciate the advance. Now what about all those other rough spots?

7 Days In, New Year’s Rather Old Already
  Duh. A woman standing at a curb, on her phone, stepped right in front of moving me and sounded her "ooo" alarm as if absolutely none of the fault for the inconvenient passing were her own. Thirty-seven years of experience had me realizing the calculation to swerve was necessary a brief second before it happened. Not a dag-gum bit of evidence indicates the public-at-large is capable of realizing we're just too naive to keep dangerously going on like this where it's ok because, eventually, soon enough, someday, lights, bells and whistles will all go off if anyone's within 2 feet of any one of us. Certainly. There'll be portable ambulances everyone carries so there'll be little excuse for anyone not to fly through the streets because of the long-standing fast as possible tradition our insurance addictively finances.
PAY ATTENTION, the rewards ARE PRICELESS.

preoccupations 
  While what's happening in America's heart is messages' essences aren't really rooted out, when every calculation is outrageous myth built on pat explanations for twisting the political wheels' spokes. Drunk with power's trending and where hope's lost.

What there's little doubt about is we're where we are.
And how seeing things, one way or the other, shrouds the golden opportunity in a gloss of utterly vast showmanship. Ta da!
