A Funny Thing Happened On The Way?

Beep. Beep. Beep. There it was. The pulsating dot over the cell phone's GPS graphic representing The United Nations. While the courier was too new to his company to turn anything down. No matter how confused the details were expected to be even before picking up. Beginning with a maze of blocked entrances at least. He tapped yes.

The messenger bag was clean so Front Gate Security passed him on. But now, rather than wait for the next line's total Front Desk supervision, he called the client, direct, who said an assistant would be there "to get you soon." While why the package wouldn't come too wasn't his place to ask. 

The hustling, but polite, assistant nodded him in. Despite its being an exception for thirty years for messengers to be past Front Desk Security. Access blocked since even before the western wall's substantial bank of telephones were removed. Getting the courier to wonder whose power made this unnecessary move possible? Although they'd probably lost other bikes that wouldn't wait, so his guess was the client was willing to pay for speed.

So. A short elevator ride and he was dropped in an elaborate Reception Area. Where, except for the far off lone male receptionist, he was left to himself, in the center, to do a 360° survey of the exquisite decorations. Seeing what the whole city, since before the Dutch, reflects, success. Then his "supervisor" popped her head out a door to say, "A few more minutes. Please." Making sure he was still there.

Then just feeling drawn to look at a different door, without intending, a contingent of suits swept him with them through a short corridor somewhere that felt like backstage. Seeing things he wasn't meant to, the courier was wide-eyed while the two uniforms assisted the group's table seating. But in an atmosphere so friendly he moseyed on over to the gap on an actual stage he was stunned wasn't television and shook at the thought.
But with no time to weigh consequences, his feet instinctively felt the opportunity carry his shy personality center stage. 
At the podium the courier reached in his messenger bag for his company's stapled instructions he hadn't memorized. Placing the sheets on the podium, and bag between his feet, maybe half the hall raised their heads wondering "what the?" While the other half, at least for a while, would have been reasonably expected to ignore Secretary General Ban Ki-moon himself.  

The courier saw a little mike and "Hello" filled the hall. Dazed, he said, "Ladies and Gentlemen," and confused by Security, yelled "End ruthless rule!" 

Under apparent arrest, carried by two officials in both ears telling him his future was ruined, was the exact ramification the messenger was responsible for preventing. Though in his case, at that moment of extreme regret, a Sri Lankan yelled, "Wait!" Stopping his handlers. She insisted, "He's spoken here. It is my right to hear him out." Then directly asked the courier, "What did you mean, sir?" 

Realizing he needed composure most. He remained silent and passive till release. Then straightening his back and shoulders slowly returned to the podium where he 
covered the mike and cleared his throat. Saying calmly, "What's wrong is ruthlessness wins. Machismo's right even when wrong. To enforce civil society, everyday simple things are oppressive. You yourselves know from not paying New York City Parking Summonses through Diplomatic Immunity, that the bottom line is money and not public safety. Only our full integrity and the weak are punished for crime and it's this incessant acceptance that the weak's status is theirs and not all of ours, that makes the necessary individualism the scapegoat for the actual complacent flaws privilege shares with poverty. Will who we are always result from pragmatic excuses?"

Then, with the entire hall, even the courier thought - what? But, noticing Security's cautious circle closing in, he scanned the audience for pause, smiling, saying anyway, "I imagine the translators are boggled. Are they working?"

"No," the Sri Lankan answered "Cut off."

"Yes," the courier grinned. "I can't afford this expensive stage. But I'll donate," he said and "cough.

"Now. The reality is to protect rights justice is a contest. A stage for acting out tragedy, courting resolution. But not solving criminality's festering all these generations with how many more to come? Is it true all our shortcomings are financial? It's a financial decision that the whole world isn't bridges and tunnels separating auto and rail transportation to protect ourselves from the inevitable inherent error when they collide. Excusing mistakes for financial reasons is not moral. 

"Justice? Justice is stretched to absurd proportions. It's impossible we'll ever be truly civilized while there's two sides to the law. In all practicality the marginal criminalization of the public makes the public enemies of the people. The police should be such good guys we're not put through the expense of citizens feeling they have to evade them. 'But hardened criminals' you ask? Not if what must be done is done educationally. Because it's not a mystery why people grow up bizarre. But what's strange is how authority handles everything militarily. Police should be everywhere with no reason to be nosy about everyone's business. 'But anyone could be a bad person,' I'm reminded. Yes and we're already dealing with that. Social imbalance must be solved from our humane core. The violent spectacle all around us is from a distorted belief in revenge when anyone's being dressed in sheep's clothing led to slaughter is wrong."

"Excuse me," a
 new official asked, swinging an arm lightly, ready to grab a hold? "Aren't you done?"

The courier said, "I would prefer not to" into the mike. And the two men looked at each other. One wondering what would move this along and the other curious to see how far it goes.

Re-addressing the UN General Assembly Hall, the courier said, "I know this is against protocol and still chose to do it. Rules are mostly broken because of opportunity. It would be nice if people who did drugs were morally corrupt and maintaining the Criminal Enterprise System the righteous thing to do. But that's not true. Get your heads out of the clouds. Not doing drugs does not make people morally superior. Whatever it is, the world has to stop being jealous of each others' adventures. A justice system would respect the public and not have opposite sides seeing each other as enemies. We're much too sophisticated and advanced for all this nonsense. Terrorists? The world stood and stands by letting wicked symbolize so much, that we're undone by our judgmental madnesses. Destroyed by everyone's superiority complexes.
"But," he said, raising his hand for pause. Perhaps pretending he was meant to say, "It's just how things are. Oh well. We just have to collectively shrug our shoulders, right? Well. The future would be right to judge us by what we haven't accomplished rather than what we have."

Then the courier nodded once to the hall and stepped back from the podium with a return motion as if Security's hands could be kept off indefinitely making him laugh, and consequently seem more suspicious. 

But who applauded first is hard to say because when the Sri Lankan raised her hands a quarter of the hall gave a light applause. And while h
e didn't get the package, he took away the valid hope someone understood. And that's that. Because, after all, how could being a publicity hazard lose his job when everyone's favorite show's As The Celebrity Turns?

Political Momentum

If I can't say what anyone might be afraid to hear. 
I have no business writing The Soapbox View.

A little tune to read to from the Jingoistic Nationalism By Every And All Means is The World's Biggest Flaw of All Catalogue. 

Well here we are as usual. Where the more stably unstable the most powerful are, the more the world is misled to believe that power in our names is pure patriotism and not really that far out of whack. The Ukraine debate has been fashioned such that 
President Putin is characterized as on the simple path of ruthless nationalism. OK, but barriers are rising to curb that goal in Ukraine so now there's this pseudo short-term appearance militarism is on hold. Except, as noted before, and William J. Broad pointed out in The New York Times, Sunday, May 18, 2014, In Taking Crimea, Putin Gains A Sea Of Fuel Reserves. Why would Russia want all of Ukraine's problems when their profit is primarily concerned with supplying the world's owners who were so darn contentedly complacent over-polluting the planet, they have held back our progress both environmentally and economic? Shareholders my ___! Bait and switch psuedo-conservative hysteria for simple-minded market-share when it's past time people woke to the mess financial circulation remains because of petty political jargon. Can't pour oil across the US from Canada? President Putin could drill tubes underground anywhere he wants so who's driving now? 

How can powerful disinterested self-interests face the truth? By everyone taking responsibility so we somehow also find how to put on hold the demonizing of this poor wealthy man, Vladimir Putin, who's just a Chester pounding his chest atop the tip of a darn cold iceberg. Soapbox View The associations of individuals (hey) conspiring to funnel the world's financial flow instead of letting it go for everyone. Getting ourselves beyond this contrived lazy worked-up nonsense of blaming a lazy economic class for not having more access to opportunity because there really is a massive cornering of wealth away from where it could more righteously flow. For example: The New York Times, Sunday May 18, 2014, by Elizabeth RosenthalMedicine's Top Earners Are Not the M.D.s examines the numbers of how the business of medicine was actually coerced from the actual practitioners in The Medical Industrial Complex. Soapbox View

As criminal as legally stealing health care and blaming the public has been, let's address the other charade - the 21St Century precedent set by former President George W. Bush inserting jingoistic self-righteousness into the cyclically misunderstood holy war of revenge over all of our one Allah/God. So of course following that Chester-ish lead, why shouldn't any nation assert sovereignty across borders? Any revolutionary carry out violence against women when power for its' own sake is the real worshipped evil. Sure. The toughest can always win but no mere mortal can just assert they're right and be correct. 
The point is critics will criticize and compliment ANY statesmanship. But where was President Putin supposed to learn civilized law and order is not a decree? From George the Grinner's post-presidential interview comfortably facing his daughter? (It's ok honey, detractors are just nobodies.)

Image makers? It's like no one has to give a da_n. Claiming to let history decide? No one besides actual terrorists deserves that. No shame? Believe me. I'd prefer to write around this opinion and not offend sycophants. But this is my country too and I feel the shame of your cohort of bandwagon jumpers' satisfaction as mere manipulators. Apologize, or whine to God. Your choice. 

If George W. Bush apologized would that get the ball rolling? Because politics shouldn't just be the art of using people. As wild as it sounds, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission is a perfect precedent for the position the whole world is in. Not just Russia, Mr. Presidents.

This History Repeated Is Unpaid Attention To News

October 2, 2012 - Prison Reform - 

Letters written by New York State prisoners sent to New York Civil Liberties Union over several months vividly detail the psychological effects of long-term solitary confinement.
As free people the worst punishment imaginable is the loss of the freedom to decide where to go. I’ve spent two separate nights in jail and know you become complacent accepting your waiting in the cell. But when you know you’re out soon, the level of hope has to be much greater than for those rotting in prison. A world away from cooling your heels for a night.
I just feel having your liberty taken away is punishment enough. How is our anger mollified if their entire lifestyle reflects our anger with them on a continuous basis? Sure bunks in a cell is efficient, but we’ve found so many ways to make that experience expensive, what’s the difference giving them a little space? I remember a European documentary describing a prison operated like a dormitory with rooms and the basic conveniences of modern life that didn’t seem so much like punishment. The person could go to work, but not where they wanted.
The New York Times reports on an aspect of how much punishment is enough, under the title Prisoners’ Letters Offer a Window Into Lives Spent Alone in Tiny Cells By MOSI SECRET. The Times describes how – The handwritten letters arrived by the dozens, from men who described in flawed but poignant language what it was like to lose their minds.
One man wrote, “I feel like I am developing some kind of skitsophrinia behaviors. I hear voices echoing as I try to fall asleep.” Another said his mind “rots” with “thoughts that are uncommon or unnatural and you wonder where the hell did that come from?”
Continuing The Times states – They are prisoners in New York’s state prison system and were convicted of a range of crimes, including selling drugs and murder. The men were ordered out of the general prison population and into solitary confinement— or, in their parlance, “the box”, where they lived in tiny, elevator-size cells cut off from almost all human contact. The reasons varied: fighting, smoking, testing positive for drugs. But often for more serious crimes, like stabbing other inmates, trying to escape or attacking guards.
The Times draws a vivid picture. – Having been held captive to their imaginations for weeks, months or, occasionally, years on end, the men, many already struggling with mental illness, brought their paranoia, rage, anxiety and hope to life on the page, with descriptions that were sometimes literary and other times nearly impossible to decipher. More than anything, they conveyed a grisly awareness that their identities were unraveling, a feeling so disconcerting for some that they tried to take their own lives.
The Times prints – The trove of letters from more than 100 inmates to the New York Civil Liberties Union, which corresponded with the men to bolster its attempts to curtail the practice of solitary confinement, gives new insight into a closed-off world usually viewed only one person at a time. The letters may add fuel to the national debate over whether holding prisoners in extreme isolation amounts to cruel and unusual punishment. Many states have recently shifted away from the practice, which was the subject of federal hearings this summer, but it remains widespread in New York.
I’d imagine anywhere two politicians could rubbed together is sufficient to go through the farce of portraying the defense of law and order, no matter how vindictive the punishment actually appears. Apparently when authority withholds wielding extreme amounts of power it can’t feel the heft of its own weight. So like corporations the Supreme Court grants individual rights, so too must we respect the right to punish to the full extent of the law whether it’s just for punishment’s sake or not. So I can assume their individual prison cells don’t lock? We control prisoners to a degree like children their supervisors are responsible for. So why not just make them stay in their rooms/cells? Miss that hour a day walk that, too a degree, is cruel and inhuman punishment too.
The Times calculates – Nearly 4,500 prisoners in the state are held in segregated housing on any given day, about half in solitary confinement and half in cells with another inmate, according to the N.Y.C.L.U., which planned to publish a 72-page report on its findings on Tuesday, a copy of which was provided in advance to The New York Times.
Sounds daunting to even crack the seam, but one can wonder how many in the prison system should have it assigned to them as required reading before they complain we don’t understand how much retribution the victims of the criminals deserve and how unworthy of our care criminals are.
Quoting – The civil liberties group – The Times – called both types of segregation “arbitrary, inhumane and unsafe,” arguing that corrections officials have too much discretion to send inmates to segregated housing for long periods, even for minor infractions.
Is it a wonder convicts, and inevitable convicts, see punishment in civilian life a reward in itself for themselves, after being molded into degenerates living out society’s extremes.
The Times says – The report does not call for abolishing solitary confinement but recommends that the state corrections department enact more restrictive regulations that reserve isolation as a punishment for the most violent offenders and that the state take a census of its cells to find out which inmates deserve to be there.
See, there goes politics. Chipping away at the status quo, prolonging just plain turning everything around.
The Times cites – A spokesman for the corrections department, Peter K. Cutler, who limited his comments in an interview on Monday because the report had not been released. Mr. Cutler said, “Disciplinary segregation is something that we take very seriously in our system.” Then The Times paraphrases, printing, – He said the factors guiding the department were inmate behavior and the safety and security of the prisons. “There is a process. It is not something that is done unilaterally.”
Sanitariums used to pick out the worst and give them lobotomies too. So?
Donn Rowe, president of the New York State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association, said, “Inmates are absolutely entitled to rights, and should never be subjected to violence. But their anonymous complaints should also be met with an appropriate amount of skepticism, and the public must be reminded that New York’s prison system houses some of the most violent and troubled individuals in this country.”
So why try to teach them compassion? They’ll never learn so why be compassionate toward the worst of us? Our only option is tearing their ill will apart when that’s what made them who they are?
Maybe The Times erred in not giving authority the last word? But prints nonetheless – In the letters, the inmates, whose real names were not released by the N.Y.C.L.U. because the organization said they might suffer retribution from corrections officials, accepted responsibility for the crimes that they had committed on the outside but questioned whether their behavior on the inside deserved such treatment. They pointed fingers at the mental health officials, nurses and guards who they said brushed off complaints.
The efficacy of being damned to mortal punishment is all that can be seen from the inside of a prison?
Wrote a man who would try to commit suicide months later, “Please, somebody help. I need HELP!!!”
But the inmates are transferred to segregated housing after breaking the rules. One said he was cited for “wreckless eyeballing and stalking” after he looked at a female prison guard’s backside as she bent over to pick up her keys.
God forbid prison be at all similar to the real world outside, huh?
Most of the men ended up at one of the two state prisons dedicated entirely to isolation cells, Upstate Correctional Facility, in the town of Malone near the Canadian border, or Southport Correctional Facility, in Pine City. Monotony was the rule for 23 hours a day. They received their food through slots in the doors. For one hour each day, they exercised in a small metal cage called the “kennel.”
Shouldn’t there be a law protecting dogs’ rights not to have words associated with them demeaned?
Yes I would expect prison officials to know anyway but The Times, as usual to look informed, tattles on the prisoners printing – The men “fished,” or passed notes, books and magazines to each other using ripped sheets weighted by toothpaste tubes. But mostly they watched the walls.
One inmate wrote, quotes The Times, “The water from the sink is a milky color. It’s not white but its definitely not clear. Our shower is extremely hot and drips even after we cut it off — nonstop. Due to the moisture from the shower and the sink, we now are beginning to notice knats, also known as ‘fruit flies.’ The walls are marked with gang signs, demonic drawings, mucus, feces and rust. We are not allowed to disinfect our cells. There is toothpaste hard and flaky on my lights, walls, bed, ceiling, doors and vents. On my shower there is numerous stickers, mildoo, soap residoo, and what appears to be little spots of dried blood.”
Really? Are our paid employees being lazy about prisoner hygiene punishment enough? Or is it true we’ve figured out how to put all our slobs away for life?
Month Day - ..., 2017

The Queen Visits Ireland

  Or at least sometimes people try very hard to make that so. So there this symbollic handshake is done unless Her Majesty is considering everyone’s hand on the island of Ireland? Then that should do it, except right, there’s ancestral aggression over a border. Dead people didn’t want compromise. But if there were ever anywhere on the face of the earth that could teach the rest of the world how to have free and open borders it should be the Irish. British or not.
  The Telegraph provides a timeline tracing conciliatory gestures back to October 1997 when Tony Blair shook Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams’ hand. While The Telegraph’s report mentions the monarch and Northern Ireland’s deputy first minister met briefly when the Queen visited a theatre in Belfast last year to view an art exhibition, this time a television cameraman and stills photographer were allowed to capture the historic moment that included no members of the public within a mile of the venue as police imposed a total exclusion zone amid fears of a terrorist attack. Starkly contrasting the cheering crowds who greeted the Queen when she visited Enniskillen yesterday, the sovereign was driven through deserted streets in a bullet-proof car for the meeting with the Sinn Fein MP.
  Mr. McGuinness, holding the monarch’s hands, spoke in Irish and told her the words meant: “Goodbye and God speed.”
  The Telegraph states sections of the nationalist community are vehemently opposed to the meeting so it’s significant. Mr. McGuinness was allegedly a senior IRA commander at the time, in 1979, the terrorist group murdered Earl Mountbatten, a cousin of the Queen and uncle of the Duke of Edinburgh (pictured above). Mr. McGuinness has said he had left the IRA by the time of Earl Mountbatten’s tragic murder.
  Not so sweet is overnight police fought running battles with more than 100 protestors in Belfast. 21 petrol bombs were tallied thrown, injuring nine officers as politicians on both sides of the political divide praised the Queen and Mr. McGuinness for their courage in going ahead with their meeting.
  Yesterday The Queen made her first visit to a Catholic church in Northern Ireland at the start of the historic two-day visit. Although the Queen has been there 19 times before, this bold itinerary includes visits unthinkable a decade ago.
  Martin McGuinness said yesterday, “In shaking the hand of Queen Elizabeth I am effectively, symbolically, shaking the hands of hundreds of thousands of unionists.”
  Peter Sheridan, chief executive of Co-operation Ireland, a charity for peace in Northern Ireland and the Republic, said the gesture would alter things irrevocably. “From my perspective it’s a huge act of reconciliation, you cannot underestimate how important this is. Whoever would have thought we would ever be in this situation – I think it says a lot about healing, human dignity and treating each other with respect. I think after today all of us will say things have changed – for me that’s the significance of it.”
  But the Republicans’ demonstration, the night before, erected an Irish flag and sign that said “Eriu is our Queen” on Black Mountain, overlooking Belfast. A goddess in Irish mythology.
  While on behalf of David Cameron, the Prime Minister’s official spokesman said, “Clearly, there was a visit by Her Majesty to the Republic of Ireland last year. That has taken relations between the two countries to a new level. We think it is right that the Queen should meet representatives from all parts of the community.”
  Huh? Never mind, his job is to not let others take credit for what he should be doing himself as the head of the government. No?
  “It’s a wonderful day for Enniskillin,” said the Very Reverend Kenneth Hall, the Dean of Clogher. “We want to prove we are one community in an atmosphere of togetherness.”
  The Queen accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, attended a service of thanksgiving for her 60-year reign at St Macartin’s Church of Ireland Cathedral, attended by both Protestants and Catholics, including the head of the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland, Cardinal Sean Brady.
  The Archbishop of Armagh, the Most Rev Alan Harper, gave a sermon in which he said the Queen’s conciliatory words and gestures in Dublin last year had allowed many to throw off the “shackles” that had been loosening since 1998′s Good Friday Agreement.
  The Queen later met survivors and relatives of the victims of the Enniskillen bombing in private, before making the short walk to St Michael’s Catholic church, which was filled with local community groups that had asked to meet her. Then went on a brief walkabout, accepting flowers from well-wishers, while some in the crowd chanted “We want the Queen!”
  Frank O’Reilly, 63, said: “We were told about two weeks ago she was coming and everybody’s been excited since then. “Given the present climate this has been a huge step forward for the Catholic and Nationalist communities.”
  But Stephen Gault, who lost his father, told Sky News: “Nobody has been brought to justice for Enniskillen so it’s very hard for the families to accept Mr. McGuinness shaking the Queen’s hand.”
  Before the meeting, Mr. McGuinness refered to a famous remark by Tony Blair before the 1998 Good Friday peace deal. “There was a lot of talk in the past about someone feeling the hand of history on his shoulder. This is about stretching out the hand of peace and reconciliation to Queen Elizabeth who represents hundreds of thousands of unionists in the north.”
  Gerry Kelly, a Sinn Fein MLA and a former IRA member, said of the meeting, “This is a huge ask for Republicans. It is symbolic in the sense that the Queen may be a grandmother who people in England and people orientated towards Britain here in Northern Ireland highly respect and love. But she is the symbol of British rule in Ireland.” However much it’s not her fault, I suppose.
  Noel Whelan, a political commentator, told the Financial Times, “This is part of Sinn Fein’s strategy to broaden its political appeal in the Republic and reach out to middle class support as it attempts to establish itself as a potential government partner in the south.”
  Let’s see what happens?

  The New York Times also reported.

The New York Times also reported.

Your Majesty?

  Yes the title's fitting for the Queen Elizabeth reign, though contrived reigns are plentiful. While the question remains, what more could the Queen do, or, for that matter, all the d___ed spoiled Kings on Earth?
  Numb, and ever skeptical, I wasn't going to watch. But the effect of a countdown tuned me to the event. Thing is while promises seem fulfilling, circumstance and power overrule even the best intentions in our shake or be shook-en world. Senator Schumer spoke. The loyal opposition. ("Great.") War story. ...  "echo through the ages" ... . If the American Presidential Inauguration were a filibuster, it couldn't be clearer a list of specific challenges would have been as poignant as memorializing sacrifice. Noble and, maybe, backing-out on a confrontation's a political statement when the President's speech was destined to consist of boasts? 

  "Now the oath." 
  May the country do well by Free Speech because time marches on people. Done deal.  
 Symbols have the better of us? That is a question.
  Taking over by imposing will paraphrases the speech's opening remarks. "Giving it back to you the people" rhetoric. Promising equitability a claim. Corners cut the president allows. Everything the president wants the people want.  Again? ...
  See the other side's Schumer should have listed a point of integrity to be held to ... .
  PBS' Brooks of The New York Times wants to marry, (embellishment), the rote-ishly recited streamlined-condensed version of the speech
 OK, "stop the carnage." 
  Except the stated solution's just the promise the Criminal Enterprise System's performance will be a better run business. As usual. The country's being sent to military school. Nation taken for Roy Cohn granted. ... . 
  Mmm. Provable I said taken for Roy Cohn granted, you'd suppose. Voted ruled from a pedestal remains one hard concept to face for a few/many Americans. 
  Yeah, hard to deny print, though as easily altered or digitally lost? Uh, huh. Facing a Cult of Personality's not just a simple label from another age. Understanding how it fits the present day means not being as hypnotized by self-righteousness as the nation seems. 
  Numb's just the iceberg's tip.  
  Boasting perfection is a performance. Solid substance a myth. Anyway, yeah. Quite the show though actually seeing utopia take shape before our eyes as promised. Yet meanwhile it's just overshot? 
  "Eradicate" means war as usual. 
  "Hour of action." 
  "Won't be ignored again." 
  Who wouldn't want in on patriotic action? 
  So however you politically associate, as either "you liberals" or "I'm conservative," it's fairly obvious, most, if not all, political symbols are rubbed raw of meaning. As sure as Politics is Theater
  Unless as the jingoist cultural phenomenon hiding behind political parties insists, it's been sufficiently demonstrated to the public there's no way the lessons of Frank Norris' 1901 The Octopus applies to the governing of business and business of governing today. Or for that matter, Eddie Murphy's The Distinguished Gentleman. Besides, it's proven the world wouldn't be better without strong corporations. Even North Korea stands by their successes. Etc. Etc. Amazing how technologically advanced the world's troubles are without everyone having a job? 
  Perhaps Boastful Speech never ends, remaining a huge impediment to humanity's evolution?  
  War Chests of America vs. War Chests of America
vs. Chesters vs. Chesters

When we went to John Steinbeck's funeral service, this is what happened...
  I also thought that Steinbeck's passing meant that so much of my early feelings about this country was dead, too, also part of my early identity, and I was living in a bright strange foreign new world all on my own without a past. Poor bastards, all of us.

An Un-passed Impasse
  Another eerie dawn reveals moralistic warriors clung to righteousness exonerating harda__flaws. None of us have real use for tyranny. Cycles of revenge should be solved. After all better war's not all that great a solution? America's on the precipice again of redeclared war on lifestyles. Compromising the police's position of the law requiring of them to be on everyone's side. The police shouldn't enforce lifestyles. END THE CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE SYSTEM, please. Shrewdness' ramifications have already done us in. Otherwise why not plans to Statuitize Harry J. Anslinger in Washington D.C. to commemorate his bigoted "swamp" career change as Prohibition evolved. Making morality a farce is the biggest shame. 
  But hey. Just another day in politics some call struggle for a reason. While others define hardship as having to use power tools. 
  An all you need is leverage attitude brought about The Teapot Dome Oil Industry Scandal of the Harding Presidency, and now vaunted New Age presentation that's pragmatic political attitude. For A Few Dollars More, huh?
