SYCOPHANTISM'S GRAND PARADE?

Okay. So it's not the last thing I want to do. Endlessly harp on  
George W. Bush's martyrdom on our behalves. Claiming God told him to continue the cycle of revenge you should apologize for, sir. Yes sir. I'm repeating myself and there's no reason you'd listen. However. In light of recent torture revelations, you visited the 9/11 Memorial Sunday evening, December 14th, around 6:30 PM for an hour on a low key basis according to the next morning's radio news. The 9/11 tragedy is everyone's grief whether they believe it or not. While we, humanity are smarter than this. The idea people hate each other so much they won't stop at anything, does not excuse crossing an objective line and insinuating any holy war mattered more than any other. Poppycock
People are wrong blaming anything about this on God. Unless these hatreds are solved perverse cycles of revenge won't be. You, George W. Bush have to apologize because everyone needs to get a grip. Oooo, Isis formed. No kidding. Even NBC's Meet The Press traced Dick Cheney's warning of ramifications on C-Span to 1994. 
The strategy of overwhelming the public with pragmatic patriotism was never a secret. The cat was never in the bag. Yes sir. Essentially invading the Middle East was another flaw in the cycle of revenge. Not right for them or us either. Pride shouldn't doom us to this paraphrasing of Samuel Johnson's warning - PATRIOTISM IS THE REFUGE OF THE SCOUNDREL 
Now. It's foolish contradicting someone elected twice. Also the United States tried running the fairest war the world has ever seen, despite discrepancies, including billions of dollars flowing for capital means if the money only learned to land. The yang, of course, corruption. So what. It's offensive but how money flows till fluid while even America's revenue streams have eccentric patterns. The point is, the reality of this nonsense was resentment wasn't altered. Hatred that hadn't changed for centuries you jumped in feet first. This quicksand of animosity. Just more "hate you to kingdom come" ridiculousness from the dark ages. Everything about terrorism is offensive. The battle shouldn't include any of us. Yet you went ahead and essentially said, jihad for everybody. When its hardly anyone's right to claim stupid prejudice is God's reality. Defending America? None of this Terror War nonsense even defends Allah. None.  

Our martyrdom is more sacred than yours is the cycle of revenge tragedy that caused September Eleventh. Misguided reactionaries? Ring a bell, sir? Xenophobia? Have you ever at least heard that word describe nationalism's flaw? Or has your life been so politically carvedthe absurdity of the cycle of revenge wasn't enough for you to have restraint. 
For God? When we are God's suffering and smarter than this. Apologize. You did it, sir, and you keep doing it. No matter what imagery your people sell you, we're living with something else. People blinded by smite. An apology from you would really go a long way toward solving this. What's this? An unconscionable, soulless, bigotry. Visiting our shrine to a crime in a solemn hour and only shaking hands with a few on-duty security people may be an act of noble humility. Still, apologies' missing. 
I know. In this instance I should show more deference to a President of the United States. More grief in light of 9/11's tragedy. Or outrage for the victims? STOP THE HYSTERIA! Its impossible all this was ever Allah's/God's wish. For Pete's sake

C'mon dude. Preferring non-partisanship I'm writing this against the grain in this way because this out of proportion anti-Americanism issue must be addressed. What'dya say Mr. President? Iron out the façade? Please, Mr. Bush, sir. Life can be seen with brighter eyes. Please?

Here. Watch this. 

The Time of Your Life, 1948 - JAMES CAGNEY 

H.C. Potter | William Saroyan

Take a break. Don't be anyone's sycophant. How much more possibly outlandish an eccentric rant could this become, anyway? The film deals with life under the surface and how grace, tolerance and understanding plus spine combine organically, from the roots, building a better world. Stage Play takes place entirely in a bar.
DON'T BE ANYONE'S SYCOPHANT
 The Presidency's Honor Requires An Apology, Sir? Mr. President.

INVESTIGATIONS IN PROGRESS

Yurmony's response to the file included "Chatter doesn't matter" and uncrossing a leg to recross the other. And his agreement, "When people have the end of the line drawn for them, you can stretch it however you want. But ultimately? Citizens don't care." Then his right eyebrow rose questioning whether I understood normal is following the rest in line with the façade?

So I pointed out for the lawyer that, "Ruthless jargon rules the world. Mere layers of more nonsense. Everything's just Goofy ruled by subterfuge and espionage. If evil's the problem? Stop raising it. Except for the various conspiracies of individuals' benefit, bitter rivalry hasn't been the solution for countless generations. Prosperity and patriotism shouldn't just be signaled by the ability to make and threaten war. Because as things cluelessly stand, we've proven to have not advanced past the Medieval Age. The future's here and we're a shameful lotCrying shame. But, suitingly, look darn good on the business page." 
Imagine lawyers getting digitally shortchanged but for a minute? Lighting out of there. Running away. Getting lost. Were my best options to elude repercussions. If there were any? While Yurmony's look just meant this should cost me. So he smirked, "Goofy's all you are," and waited a response. 

Squirm my eye. 

He sighed shutting off his screen. Then inserted finality in his voice, pausing after, "Well. It'll go this way." 

But I interrupted, "Sure it does. But by always going that way. Things can be turned a bit. Or there's no point. Unless it's the conspiracy that manipulates most has all the power. Where's the consent of the governed in that?" 

The attitude was all there in his answering me. The grinning self-assured mockery. Accusingly asking, "And you call others' jargon?" 

So I gave him his shrug back. 

He smiled, "Uh huh. Be realistic. Management is controlling people. Not what dissent fabricates and convolutes to mean tyranny."

"Ditto," I said because whatever he meant was questionable too. Power running roughshod.

"Uh huh," Yurmony pretended to have heard what I thought. "Individuals aren't successes by themselves."

"Why everything's a conspiracy." 

"Except for nothings." 

"Ah. You mean it's fruitless encouraging voters not to be sycophants?" 

He said, "I'm telling you. Twisting logic doesn't make you correct. Makes you a muddler." 

Nice to hear at least. 

But he continued. "To the point. Since this makes no difference. Why bother? It's impossible to be in everyone's corner disagreeing with both sides. Look"

"Look? Lawyers profit defending everyone. Even pro bono's good for business. Plus I don't advocate poaching. Tolerance doesn't mean tolerating crime. Our problems are deeper than the rule of law. Cultural and perhaps chemical, the way people, beneath the skin, always bother each other."

"O-kay. Let's stick to not making a case of this."

"There's no case," I replied. 

While Yurmony'd moved on and smiling, waved me through the Sliding Glass Door onto the balcony. Even designating a lounge chair, opposite him, where I sat on the edge. 

Grinning he, started a cigar and, waving it around, asked if I knew, "why people confer with lawyers?" 

"Paid to keep their mouths shut."

"Besides that, cynic. People need someone doubting them on their side to come to grips with the truth."

"You're psychiatrists?"

"Dude. The law supervises people's shortcomings in dealing with others."

"Noble calling. But The Fine Society? Culture by punishment. Crime should end because it's really not polite. There are solutions for problem people. Among which is releasing them from the internal cages their anger's in. 

"I can't help feeling one thing could help with disharmony. Start at the top and see how it trickles down. George W. Bush should apologize for opening the floodgates on aggression and prejudice. More permission to go off the deep end. 

"It was just bullcrap blaming God for any facet of our endless cycles of revenge. Revenge, the attitude that raises every generation's criminality in the first place. No one can actually pay for crime and we live with that result every day. Viciously recycling The Criminal Enterprise System's Criminal Industrial Complex. Supporting this cockamamy idea that not only fools go to war. Civilization's not war."

"Okay there," he said. "There you go. Whether you are or not. You're a hard case. Anyway. You can't land or shed light on anything critically when you sporadically, but consistently, use, but never criticize, The New York Times."

Theodore Roosevelt
"That's not sarcasm? You mean never bring up something like the May 23rd essay in The New York TimesThe Making of a Great Ex-President? Where the author, Boise State University's Justin S. Vaughn, slipped in a humble reference to Ronald Reagan's consideration among the near-great presidents. Presidents are important. 

"Yesterday even, David Leonhardt's A Ruling Even Reagan Could Embrace began a paragraph with - Reagan, whose political instincts were generally fabulous, understood this point. To, maybe lighten the blow for a paragraph later lead with - What Reagan got wrong, however, was the definition of socialism.

"Capitalism is socialism is the truth. And it would be nice if people weren't so numb to the meaning of ideology they're hoodwinked by the catchphrase, 'socialism doesn't work.' Private companies are social cells. The Fire Department is socialist. Reagan rode bandwagon contraption that defined political debate as narrowly as possible. A game of ping-pong really. This idea of conservatism vs. liberalism. Caging each others' ideals in warped senses of righteousness. Intellectually lazy and not at all what the public could understand. But what's simple to sell. There's really no freedom from the slant.

"Basically all of history's notorious ride their era's crest. Ivan The Terrible rode the military state that held off the Mongol Horde and made Moscow king. President Reagan kept intolerance profitable while Californians re-wired the world. Cut. 

"I'm past hoping it helps America to understand its' political veneers perpetuate simplistic façades. A joy ride of hype in a propaganda store. Meaning nothing's getting us through this obstinacy power has towards being influenced by substance of depth. 

"What history keeps repeating at a poundingly numb rate is, we're so far, far advanced and happy that, for the most part, things falling apart's profit and loss too. Because there's already tickets to the moon and beyond for anyone feeling threatened enough to get away from any deep thinking going on about planet Earth. No matter anyone's status. We're all a bunch of losers when it comes to handling money. Everyone working their hearts out for something worth less every day. End inflation or the madness never will. Because otherwise pretending to catch up seems to have irrevocably damaged us forever already."

"Listen," he said.

So I retraced, saying, "This is that Justin S. Vaughn quote. 'Favorites like Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy died as presidents, and others, including near-greats Woodrow Wilson, Ronald Reagan and Lyndon B. Johnson, suffered health problems that severely constrained their post-presidential activities.'  

"Heavier than sound-bytes. The consolidating appraisal's meant to leave marks. Everything matters. But it's beginning to look a lot like history's become the number of times it's published you're an idiot." 

Yurmony grinned like I wouldn't shut up.

So I said, "What about Theodore Roosevelt's picture in that Professor Vaughn piece?" I threw up my hands. "He didn't like that name Teddy they used for the caption. Yet there the name sat under his picture in The Times. Naming him exactly against what he'd wish. Characterized. A small isolated incident. Yet there it was in The New York Times. A fact. In effigy over the Manifest Destiny attitude toward life and war that he hadn't created but built 19th Century America that raised him. Plus he even came to regret that warrior mentality after his son, Quentin died a WWI hero. But to conquer a nation you have to break a few heads and have no room for shame on the mantelpiece? That's what our world's been taught their elites thrive on for victory. Why I'm willing to lose repeating don't be anyone's sycophant.

"Meaning where there's a bandwagon? I prefer getting off. George W. Bush Should Apologize. Our American military has an obligation to go to war only as last resort. What's at question from my point of view is God was blamed for deciding this holy war nonsense could handle escalation. Beaten to submission never works except for those without a conscience. George W. Bush Should Apologize

"I can accept Reagan was an adequate president. But not when it comes to pinning responsibility for the forward progress many are responsible for achieving. Near-great denies the obvious. Permission for the hard____s to persecute life-style choices is on Reagan's mantelpiece and to take it off is lying. Exploiting America's flaws is not a sign of greatness but the petty opportunism all America hopes and wishes were out of the boardrooms and our lives. Tough enough to thrive has been made a joke when political identity's proven a comedy. Saying we're lost without presidents is like claiming William Henry Harrison contributed much more meaning than symbolizing a military general's reward coming late in public life." 

Yurmony was stupefied

SMOOTH MOVE SHERLOCK?

The best mysteries are Holmesian I thought reaching the top of the stairs when the strangely painted door opened I entered anyway. Intrigued by what the letter said to "be on time and enter anyway." As with most things if it wasn't about money why bother. Lawyers and all that. But for money you bug yourself. 

I'd ridden the thirty miles from the airport arriving two hours after sunriseThen walked around this side of the lake. The same story all over the country. Hometown downtowns shrunk or dissolved. Essentially unable to access the successful gravy train known as the "local mall" that's become dislodged by delivery folks who'll soon enough be outbid by drones. Just when society figured out more ways to get at least this close to paying ourselves, the rug's still technically, officially, completely pulled out from under the rest of us? Mortgage sabotage framed large the story and excuse. While nothing's ever on the shelves that's not already accounted for. Hooray. 

Not an actual office, the room felt suspicious. The lawyer's name "Yurmony" sounding like one to believe. He said, "Watching earlier confirmed" I was "still just 'day dreaming.'" 

Useless aside, "This isn't an office," I said, "What's going on?"

Yurmony? "Yeah. Going on. About that."

Hardly good. A lawyer hedging. Prepping. Warming both of us up. The legal process feeling ruthlessly cold again and not the guardian of liberty hoped of her. The law. If there were anything better the goal of the law is to become that. How could I be in trouble for pointing out the obvious? Nicknaming aspects of the legal apparatus the Criminal Enterprise System isn't seditious. In fact patriotic Americans voice unpopular expressions especially when emphasis on that particular point changes the dynamics and lethargy that dominate the ideal of what the police mean in the United States. How come they see themselves as separate from other Americans? An occupying force? When we all need the Criminal Enterprise System reformed that's in the hands of the people's legislatures bless their souls. 

The lawyer stared at me with that where's your mind at look, focus on him. Except he hadn't said anything while I'd at least rehearsed defending speech. 

Finally Yurmony said, "Investigations turn up ghosts."  

"Yeah?" I said, "History's how none of us are saints. Did you catch The New York Times essay Our Vietnam War Never Ended by USC professor Viet Thanh Nguyen? An objective America would want all points of view understood without all the reactionary jingoism that's given symbolic American license to overzealous nationalistic exploitation all over the world."

"See," Yurmony said. "Cryptic. The picture's complicated and people don't understand your meaning so you're just a trouble-maker. Not even soapbox tool." 

"Patently absurd," I responded.

"But not far-fetched" he gleamed. Squeaking, "The satire's clues. PatternsRepetitions. IncitementsMmm. Wonder how much different opinion of you is than yours of yourself?" 

"Submit my file." ...

Well honky dory. Not that news wasn't always advertising. But there was some discomfort with the façade. 
While people are told aliens are from other countries when The Soapbox View wonders how do so many aliens get to the planet? The Soapbox View is that the traditions treating others as alien are unnecessary tradition. Unethically opposed to the sanctity of God's singular existence as everything. The Soapbox View recommends Lawyers For Everybody! Considering as The Soapbox View does how so many aliens have gotten on the planet? The Soapbox View is Advertising For Everybody! No wait. Not for the not wanted people? National sovereignty is one thing. Jingoism another.

The Soapbox View Someone gets to live there? I thought only Rupert Murdoch could afford the property taxes it takes to live so valuably?

The Soapbox View Chasing inflation never solved increasing inflation. Why aren’t economists smarter than this relentless make-believe-game of catch-up? Remember the deceased name in America, Woolworth's? The Five and Dime. New York City’s Woolworth Building on Broadway was built by the public's nickels and dimes commemorating capitalism's strengths. Then civilization gradually woke up to every child’s only seeing the value of paper money and everything went digitally berserk. Why not $15? Evidence is it won’t work any better than $5 or $10 ever did. Trouble is we built paradise without figuring out how to fit everyone in because blaming the economists was and still is such a lucrative political sport?
The Soapbox View Obviously the money's not circulating satisfactorily enough.

The Soapbox View Expendable pawns useless to the machine. Not what we've become but always were. Capitalism functioning properly would have no problem applying socialism where warranted. End The Hypocrisy! In the broader picture? Chasing inflation never solved increasing inflation. Why aren’t economists smarter than this relentless make-believe-game of catch-up? Remember the deceased name in America, Woolworth's? The Five and Dime. New York City’s Woolworth Building on Broadway was built by the public's nickels and dimes commemorating capitalism's strengths. Then civilization gradually woke up to every child’s only seeing the value of paper money and everything went digitally berserk. Why not a $15 minimum wage and more? Evidence is it won’t work any better than $5 or $10 ever did. End inflation or the madness never will.
The Soapbox View THE ENTERTAINING POLITICS OF FOLLOWING THE MONEY! Who isn't a Rudy Giuliani fan? In the grip of money? Make it work. Sweat it out.

However money circulates should be just as fascinating. The Soapbox View is we built paradise without figuring out how to fit everyone in because blaming the economists was and still is such a lucrative political sport? The Soapbox View Maybe due to inflation's inevitability doesn't make a hill of beans difference? The Soapbox View People want money. People have the freedom not to give it to them. The tragedy is inevitably the characters in Times Square will become professional, corporatized polished lily-white once the effects of alienating these independent contractors from the public is complete. To be honest. I saw them as a nuisance from the beginning but if everything were judged on its value as a nuisance - none of us would be anywhere.

Time for waking up from The Criminal Enterprise System to becoming a real civilization? Back in February Rolling Stone also had an essay conjecturing on some foresight necessary for dismantling the Criminal Enterprise System?

We need to correct the distorted mindsets that create tragedy. Hatred's a dangerous thing. Harry Anslinger’s Dependence?

Stop defending how things are against how they should be and tackle the Criminal Enterprise System. When our protection requires such worked up frenzy it appears perhaps nothing will ever be solved unless we wake up from this nightmare? Hatred's a dangerous thing.

TO CUBA - My response to objections to US-Cuban Relations? Idiots created this archaic political imagery and opportunists allow(ed) it to persist. Americans deserve better than simplistic, exploitive demonstrations of patriotism. We should want Cuba's evolution as well as our own. I distrust all leaders' compromises. Just as all Bolsheviks had the potential to act as tyrannically as Stalin did, Castro's bubble wasn't created by himself all alone. Development will win and if there's enough money left from organized corruption Cuba will either be the most completely asphalted island in the world or transportation paradise. Right. They don't have the money. It's all what we decide. Would fly from Orlando if los Castro asked me to tea.

What about BURY ALL THESE DAMNED HATCHETS FAST - END THE SLAUGHTER that at their base are just petty skirmishes and the valor anointed our separate causes just not equal to everlasting peace, no?
The Soapbox View Little patience with "people of faith" as jargon especially when ALLAH/GOD is scapegoated THROUGHOUT the world. The Soapbox View Let the cycle of revenge madness go. The Soapbox View Dissecting tragedy is the only way out. The Soapbox View Humanity could use better examples. 
The Soapbox View is in this mass hysteria cycle of revenge, everyone's wrong. And whoever believes in their complete innocence is fooled thinking they're the center of the earth. When that's clearly Allah/God. Come on folks. We are smart enough for civilization to have matured well past what are essentially territorial feuds infinitely beneath our Creator's dignity.  END THE SLAUGHTER It's called war/jihad. But at its' base? Just petty skirmishes and the valor anointed our separates causes just not equal to everlasting peace, no? 
Religion is not a place for spite and some of this world's people are terribly mistaken about what it means to praise our Creator. PEACE NOW
Knights being pawns is chess and terrifying how the world's leaders get bug-eyed defending their constituencies' whose involvements are debatable. Why patriotism has to symbolize a level of viscousness in order to be sufficiently loyal. Where's that road taken us before? We are smart enough for civilization to have matured well past what are essentially territorial feuds infinitely beneath our Creator's dignity. 
Introduction of Fifth, Park and Madison 
A Kaleidoscopic Cold War View 
Calvin Kenetic shares ISD
The Soapbox View The government shouldn't be our keeper yet it is. The gun-control industry is more prosperous than a resolution.
Hardball with Chris Matthews - I like that, "tells donors.”
The Medical Industrial Complex should have been solved DECADES BEFORE we were locked into the spiraling cost of supporting a labyrinth with not all that much to do with how well your doctor(S) really knows you. According to a Dr. Who?
The Soapbox View 1. Doctor Patient Relationship. 
Charles M. Fraser Business. Not even little h ealthcare. 1. Doctor Patient Relationship. - The Medical Industrial Complex should have been solved DECADES BEFORE we were locked into the spiraling cost of supporting a labyrinth with not all that much to do with how well your doctor(S) really knows you. According to a Dr. Who? From which Unit? 
The Soapbox View Can't fix what choked off the doctor patient relationship. Now you're going to press for this expanded socialism while the majority pretends capitalism preserves their wealth when social expansion ensured their success. It's always all been capitalism and America home to a charadé as has the rest of the world. CAPITALISM FOR EVERYBODY!
One thing about history is there's always tomorrow. In a world of denial Turkey's hardly the leader of the pack. Time civilization grew up. No Señor?
Please handle the hurdle and rise above history's tragedies.
Integrity
C'mon? People didn't already intuitively realize? "That's America for you." History having to attack its' own "whitewashing." Having been reduced to just excuses to cry over spilt milk. WAKE UP AMERICA The nonsense driving yesterday's prejudices are on your watch.
Integrity For Sale? How were people to learn this ruthless world any different?
News was always advertising. Where’s the discomfort with the façade? What I think is everyone's gonna need a lawyer.
The Soapbox View Enjoyed the episode as usual. A tough Anton. The Saint twist exceptional. Good television.
Problems With The Military Industrial Complex?
Nationalism
 Ruling the world is unethical. People need to get a grip. Perspective.
The Soapbox View Oh please. If rhetoric were a pool you'd be drowning. When's this clown show wrap up and the ventriloquists free the American people? 
George W. Bush Reeks of the common touch, no? Middle-America auditorium. Scrunched up with the people. No One's An Alien, You Canadian! The Soapbox ViewCandidates should be cuddly? What a business.
The Soapbox View Sometimes justice is gift wrapped and other times just revenge. We'd be better off being better people, huh? Everybody works at something even if it's no good. The Soapbox View Everyone's personal relationship with the police isn't the same. The Soapbox View "Welcome My Friends To The Show That Never Ends?" Party Till We Drop? The Soapbox View Click Your Heels Dorothy? The Soapbox View Can't even buy an Olympics for that? How're gonna throw a party everyone can attend?
The Soapbox View What good's life if people can't grumble about the inconvenience of a major Hollywood film set in their paths? Geez. There's an abandoned production center peacefully set in a corner of an area of Astoria planned for cementing to the stars. Maybe some day we'll all live in humongous mansions that we never leave blue-screening our interactions because everyone just got tired of walking around with their phones. Now that's a Hollywood ending.
The Soapbox View VACATIONS FOR EVERYBODY! 
Of course capitalism works. People don't. The labor's done by drones. Human history to this point? Have a nice slurpee.
Unless Sun Rail reaches THE MAIN STREET. Laurels will have been sat on. Opportunities missed. Possibilities squandered. Excuses treasured. Disney's Monorail should have reached more than one downtown by now. Ya lazy bunch a hustlers they used to call it. We all love Disney World so this situation needs to get fixed before our smart cars deliver us from parking lot to parking lot with no other scenery in between other than the signs telling us where to share our money. + Is there really a master plan to asphalt the whole state so it might float just in case the ocean consumes too much Real Estate? and DON'T LITTER ++ TOURISM FOR EVERYBODY!
The Soapbox View If cyclists on trails works as a direct route? Absolutely, as a cyclist I think that's right. But bikes go where they need to go and not where they're told. Whenever the issue is bikes are in the way the issue is molded to reflect the automobile's primacy which is the very reason it's such a b____ when the infrastructure needs fixed. It may not appear so, drivers being told to slow and give up space, but when it's all figured out, what's better for bikes benefits everyone. Look where we are with the results of frustrated drivers.
The Soapbox View Come on. Divvy up the money through solar paneled roofs without all this nonsense of some financial trust or another getting screwed, other than just the rest of us. The Soapbox View However money circulates should be just as fascinating. The Soapbox View is we built paradise without figuring out how to fit everyone in because blaming the economists was and still is such a lucrative political sport? 
FEEDER LIGHT-RAIL LINES. Due to this blind need to asphaltically expand across Florida destroying the very reason it's a nice place to live, criticizing SunRail's lack of success when it's clearly not expansive enough to serve its' purpose is mere subjective forecasting and why this undertaking began decades late in the first place.
Close your eyes. Isn't that how the problem went away the last thirty-five years?
Miami Herald The Soapbox View Work up a sweat.
Moral Totems Should Be Risen To, Not Fallen From? Ya know throwing the book at them was supposed to have ended centuries ago? Everyone hope for the best and resolution of Harry Anslinger’s Dependence? 
THE PATRONAGE SYSTEM?
In this mass hysteria cycle of revenge, everyone's wrong and whoever believes in their complete innocence is fooled thinking they're the center of the earth when that's clearly Allah/God. Come on folks. We are smart enough for civilization to have matured well past what are at their base, just petty skirmishes and the valor anointed our separate causes just not equal to everlasting peace, no? 
Life's one big PERRY MASON episode. All about money.

The Soapbox View People need to stop looking for Oz. 
THE POLITICAL EVENT
Political Momentum
A game of ping-pong really this idea of conservatism vs. liberalism. Caging the other in a narrowly defined warped sense of righteousness. Intellectually lazy and not at all what the public could understand but what's simple to sell.
The Soapbox View of the Mount Everest of Elections?
Too soon to create a tide of running-mate hysteria? Not that news wasn't always advertising. But  there was some discomfort with the façade. 
Those stunned by this exposé are expected in Room 604 for assignment.
Can't believe the election hasn't spun a run on bobbleheads.
Trump hasn't disrupted the narrative at all. Either played like a harp or a banged on banjo, jingoism's tune's still sung by entire choirs. 

DON’T BE ANYONE’S SYCOPHANT
The machine runs on hype. 
Who doesn't stand a chance? Any new names now will at least get looks under the hood.
The Soapbox View Yes politics can all seem so terribly vulgar. Power a heady experience. Hard to get around anywhere self-interest lies? POLITICAL MOMENTUM
The Soapbox View Ooo. Pandering to the jingoistically centered Political Consciousness? Tis The Political Season
The Soapbox View Probably? Who's comfortable dealing with the government all the time? People, even mayors, just want to be left alone. Isn't that always the case? The politics of dancing on incredulity? Politics is a sniping craft and we get what we deserve. You know what this text business is, don't you? Another job for the lawyers.
Rhetoric Bandwagons never unless curious to see what a candidate eventually does.
And now the violins. That's violins. Nothing noteworthy comes till ya hear the drums.
I see sitcom.
It's as if there really is no such thing as the individual in politics.
Could any candidate of real celebrity possibly say "leisure career" and mean it. When the word work is the scapegoat itself, it should matter a lot more that messages the American public receives are packaged burdened with the same damn incredulities for generations. The Soviet Union was told to praise their socialism when it was just a more severe version of slave capitalism. Socialism for the rich protected the doctors from what? Don't Be Anyone's Sycophant.
The Soapbox View We're not destined to see the day rhetoric's gutted? The Soapbox View I like that "tells donors."
Wasn't announcing an announcement the announcement? Especially since what's official is made such a mockery?
Fascinating how everyone seemed ahead on this story? The Soapbox View is the more the merrier.
Too soon to create a tide of running-mate hysteria?
On the surface contentious and one would suppose a valid argument throughout history. While supposedly as many generations as possible working on anything might have more value. But then again everything is statistically hit or miss in American Politics?
Who's ready for a mature civilizationThe politics of dancing on incredulity? The Soapbox View Life has no business sucking.
Makes a good source of speculation. 
Cameras and scaling back the Criminal Enterprise SystemThe dog and pony show must go on. 
Regrettably the major media would have probably not felt compelled to focus on this specific tragedy. No kidding. SPEECHES FOR EVERYBODY!
And the satisfaction and dissatisfaction with the new era's Digital Front Porch Campaign begins? The successful presidential campaigns of James A. Garfield in 1880, Benjamin Harrison in 1888 and William McKinley in 1896 are perhaps the best-known front porch campaigns. The business of political campaigning can absorb another voice aiming for a sliver of political edge?
The deeper we go in the future the more tragic prejudices become. 
The Soapbox View People shouldn't bother people.
RACIST DENIAL IS WORSE THAN RACISM
To Ms. Nelle Harper Lee and Zora Neale Hurston. 
Passage Removed From 
THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE Belongs Back In 
If slavery is not a part of Honoring The Confederate States by flying that flag, then flaunting the reality the two can't be separated is revengefully insulting and perhaps right that that flag flies so everyone knows where patriotism’s perverted following something that's disgusting to believe. Racist arrogance was always wrong. Elitist-ism was and always will be wrong. Honor humanity lowering that flag. 
Pride in the flag might also mean not letting it be divisive. Since racism hasn't ended over centuries this isn’t just about that dag gum Civil War or flag. DENIAL'S AS DAMAGING AS RACISM
Until whites see the struggle of blacks as their own humanity remains a battle never won.
I write my signature next to a copy of my signature and when I was once asked for ID I was indignant. This idea of enforcing purity? Wasn't it once shown to perpetuate hatred? 
To The Victor Goes Being Spoiled?
No such thing as bad publicity. Gettin' it's a _itch.
The Soapbox View Restaurants are capitalism's backbone.
Grand Re-Opening Of Theodore Roosevelt Memorial
Russia RUBLES FOR EVERYBODY RT
President Putin is not being ousted. Paranoid balderdash.
Victory Parades For Everybody!
The Soapbox View Definitely. Now is the time FOR A LOT MORE chest swaggering. When the whole world needs to mature from historically aggressive examples George W. Bush followed. Big gestures design history and it was NO POLITICIAN'S PLACE to wear the 9/11 tragedy on their sleeves. Russians seethe? If they're politicians they're posturing for their constituency. The modern world is smarter than all this BS and that's what the future will say about President Putin coasting on this upholding Russian nationalism image. That with so much possibility President Putin lived out the fantasy of playing with toy soldiers like Catherine the Great's husband Peter the Third. You need to separate yourself from the line of monarchs and get more of the details of a great life available to everyone right. Like a really good capitalist and not just a czar. Sir. 
The Soapbox View is BLINIS FOR EVERBODY! What a bunch of morons. At the critical juncture where everyone should be off their asses? Permission to live comes from the conglomeratized destruction of the great grassroots home-grown tradition of restaurants? WHERE IS THIS GENERATION'S SHAME?
Nothing about this world is shocking anymore? Charles M. Fraser Accuracy for the love of history. The Soapbox View One would have thought we were becoming smarter than this? Shrink The Industrial War Complex Who doesn't want money?
"Give me liberty or give me death." It's all hip. In the end we may all go gently walking off into the good night following our clichés' datedness. Victimized by nostalgia known for generations to have corrupted our complete integrity.  One would have thought we were becoming smarter than this?
School needs to be school period. Not what sometimes seems a paranoid experiment on kids' heads about money? Cameras For Everybody! School doesn't really feel like a classroom anymore? Best things I ever learned were in a classroom. And on another note? Private education is a myth. You run a school you're at least a pseudo-government institution no matter how the dollars are sliced.
Chris Matthews' Facebook page said Senator Rubio announced to his donors. Is there really no way of getting all this nonsense straight, Mr. Hannity? War sucks, huh? It's all rhetoric, ain't it Sean?
Stir up the smoke and mirrors why don't you?

Smoking
The Soapbox View Not smoking in public spaces is something smokers should have promoted themselves out of politeness a long time before the situation required treating them as criminals.

(Robert) Moses' Legacy Requires Serious Touching Up
A few people live in the resplendent suburbs of Detroit and people feel the car did more for us than it took away. The asphalt transportation system was subsidized. Can Anyone Buy A Clue?
The entire system should have been properly upgraded and subsidized as was the traffic system which always claims to have ACCIDENTS every day. ALL THESE TRAGEDIES ARE MISTAKES. Not accidents. We need to get out of this financial insurance juggernaut that continues life as a series of gambles WHEN WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE SMARTER THAN THIS.
TRAFFIC Condolences. In the broader picture people take too much for granted and go too fast accepting a certain level of risk that stretches what's cautionary leading to what's called accidents but are really mistakes. 
The Soapbox View is we built paradise without figuring out how to fit everyone in because blaming the economists was and still is such a lucrative political sport?
The Soapbox View Except for three weeks in Florida twenty-four years ago, I haven't pumped my own gas in thirty-four years. Pity apparently bicyclists aren't eligible to be presidents of the United States? Yet people wonder why? Why doesn't the biggest industry in the world participate in the future of energy, piddling around disputing with this concept that maybe the earth's not been destroyed enough? So the petal to the metal means where a candidate sits in relation to keeping American minds on the steering wheel? Presumably?
The Soapbox View In Detroit's Memory.
If cyclists on trails works as a direct route? Absolutely, as a cyclist I think that's right. But bikes go where they need to go and not where they're told. Whenever the issue is bikes are in the way the issue is molded to reflect the automobile's primacy which is the very reason it's such a b____ when the infrastructure needs fixed. It may not appear so, drivers being told to slow and give up space, but when it's all figured out, what 's better for bikes benefits everyone. Look where we are with the results of frustrated drivers.
The entire system should have been properly upgraded and subsidized as was the traffic system which always claims to have ACCIDENTS every day. ALL THESE TRAGEDIES ARE MISTAKES. Not accidents. We need to get out of this financial insurance juggernaut that continues life as a series of gambles WHEN WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE SMARTER THAN THIS. 
The Soapbox View To the Train.  We're either proving we're smarter than what's not functioned properly or we aren't. TRANSITION WHO CAN'T AFFORD? Transportation molded to reflect the automobile's primacy is the very reason the infrastructure needs fixing. Traffic lanes up the ying-yang incessantly clogged. Why doesn't the biggest industry in the world participate in the future of energy? Piddling around disputing with this concept that maybe the earth's not been damaged enough? While being realistic is keeping the public's minds and consciousnesses on the steering wheel? So, in conclusion:
Those Star Trek transporter gizmos can't get here fast enough, huh? While William Shatner trying the first would prove how smart we are. The advancement of the Transportation Enterprise System wouldn't prove anything? ECONOMISTS' BOXES FOR EVERYONE! Corruption's as legal as it needs to be. Perfect time to not beat around the bush anymore. Expendable pawns useless to the machine. Not what we've become but always were. Capitalism functioning properly would have no problem applying socialism where warranted. End The Hypocrisy! In the broader picture? Chasing inflation never solved increasing inflation. Why aren’t economists smarter than this relentless make-believe-game of catch-up? Remember the deceased name in America, Woolworth's? The Five and Dime. New York City’s Woolworth Building on Broadway was built by the public's nickels and dimes commemorating capitalism's strengths.
Then civilization gradually woke up to every child’s only seeing the value of paper money and everything went digitally berserk. Why not a $15 minimum wage and more? Evidence is it won’t work any better than $5 or $10 ever did. End inflation or the madness never will.
Road Blocks For Everybody?
Driving is too hazardous in general. Habitual tail gaiting at every speed. Liberty is taken advantage until "oops" a mistake. Condolences. Since the question is can? The answer is undoubtedly. Could undoubtedly. Will? Requires a prediction and political involvement The Soapbox View does not want to take. Rent the chair out where it sits. Evenings on a schedule when the executive isn't working? You can see how finding a market for this hot chair was a predicament for the thieves. If people could afford to be honest all the time, would they be?

Ditto. Surely there's a wider-angled shot of this work of ART? And time for waking up from The Criminal Enterprise System to becoming a real civilization?
One thing about history is there's always tomorrow. In a world of denial Turkey's hardly the leader of the pack. Time civilization grew up. No Señor? 
Please Turkey handle the hurdle and rise above history's tragedies as all should.
Like saying there'll be earthquakes. Bunch of nutjobs encouraging themselves to explode. So heave more kindling on the fire? Maybe what calls itself The Press should ask better questions? The Soapbox View If relations with Ukraine prosper? If ruthlessness isn't the only barometer.
Truth is only true through enough money? Humanity has technically not advanced one iota.
May war die.
Imagine war rendered fruitful or just oxymoronic.
Dissecting tragedy is the only way out. 
Has society become friendlier than ever thought possible? Or somewhere behind all this effervescent happiness lies a façade. CEASE FIRE FOREVER! The Soapbox View May innocence rise from the treacherous madness of modern war. That war is this hideous is still not a surprise.
The Soapbox View is it shouldn't matter what Tony Blair possesses. Maybe the only way there'll be real financial progress, is the actually stopping of inflation's diddling with what little everyone else has. Just can't seem to manufacture make believe money fast enough to satisfy every shark? We're this smart and not enough money to go around. This is a land of confusion. Heard that before.
Sharing the military wealth is more to the point. GIVE PEACE A CHANCE
“It’s a suicide trap.”
Well here are once again. Russia a generation removed from war and America on an almost auto-pilot where it's not patriotic to oppose anymore. China a powerful responsibility. So without history's rhetorical generation removed from catastrophic war, The Chesters Are At It Again. TESTING THE TOYS. Quoting Russian and Soviet Historian,
