“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Kiss Your Ass Goodbye Day, It's Over, May 21 2011

It's The End of the World as we know. It's The End of  the World as we know it. I feel fine.

That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane -
Lenny Bruce is not afraid. Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn -
world serves its own needs, regardless of your own needs. Feed it up a knock,
speed, grunt no, strength no. Ladder structure clatter with fear of height,
down height. Wire in a fire, represent the seven games in a government for
hire and a combat site. Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with the furies
breathing down your neck. Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered
crop. Look at that low plane! Fine then. Uh oh, overflow, population,
common group, but it'll do. Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves its
own needs, listen to your heart bleed. Tell me with the rapture and the
reverent in the right - right. You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright
light, feeling pretty psyched.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.
Six o'clock - TV hour. Don't get caught in foreign tower. Slash and burn,
return, listen to yourself churn. Lock him in uniform and book burning,
blood letting. Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate. Light a candle,
light a motive. Step down, step down. Watch a heel crush, crush. Uh oh,
this means no fear - cavalier. Renegade and steer clear! A tournament,
a tournament, a tournament of lies. Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives
and I decline.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.
The other night I tripped a nice continental drift divide. Mount St. Edelite.
Leonard Bernstein. Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs.
Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom! You symbiotic, patriotic,
slam, but neck, right? Right.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine...fine...
(It's time I had some time alone)


  1. Now I've said too much
    I thought that I heard you laughing
    I thought that I heard you sing
    I think I thought I saw you try

    But that was just a dream
    That was just a dream

  2. Today, the war power act expired and Heir Obama has declared that he doesnt need no stinking laws...

    Obama, the new messiah...


  3. Straight from the mouth of an atheist/agnostic…

    There will be NO Judgement Day today.

    Only God knows when that is and God ain't telling. It is not in the bible and there are no numbers that can decipher this phenomenon. It's not on the advertisement boards the idiots are carrying around in the streets. It doesn't come to you in your dreams.

    Remember this is coming from someone who is graduating from one of a well known Christians schools in the country.

    So everyone have a joyous day and don't worry.

  4. Not that I thought anyone here would be worried. They're still trying to bend over to kiss their ass.

    We will be here a long time before that happens.

  5. This 5:30 bullshit is for the birds…LIterally.

    I'm gonna kill the mother fuckers if they continue to wake me up every morning at 5:30.

  6. Rapture?

    The only rapture I'm going to have is….

    Yeah! You don't need to know that.

  7. I will be driving to North Jersey today to visit family I haven't seen in 30 years. I'm so excited. The sisters and brother of my cousin I visited in Daytona in March.

    So for me, today is not the end but just a beginning.

  8. I didn't do one-second of exercise yesterday and this morning I feel like shit.

    Someone may know what I mean.

  9. We've got a beautiful morning, here, in God's country, today. A little rain last night, sun's shining, farmers working, birds are busy, and a few family concerns are, temporarily, off the radar. Pretty good Saturday, so far.

    And, that got me to thinking.

    uh, oh :)

  10. A lot of Americans will be down at the gas station this morning. 15 gallons for about $60.00

    About $40.00 of that $60.00 will go Overseas. They'll loan it back to us to pay the Unemployment on all those unemployed. Also, to pay for the food stamps, and Medicaid for them and their families.

    And, next week, we'll do it all over again.

    We got a problem developing, Bubba.

  11. Now, the only one that saw this problem coming, and did something about it was George W. Bush. Wasn't for him, we'd be sending $45.00 of that S60.00 Overseas.

    It was Dubya that got us 14 Billion gallons/yr of homegrown ethanol.

  12. Did I mention, I'm sitting here, high and dry, enjoying this wonderful day, behind a great big old levee that FDR built during our last Great Depression.

    FDR taxed the rich, and spent the money putting people to work building things that we'd use for hundreds of years.

    My Daddy told me that things were, actually, getting a bit better Before WWII came along.

  13. Imagine what we'd do if the U.S. was our own "family businesss." I believe we'd call a family meeting. And, the first words out of Poppa's mouth would be, "Folks, we got a Problem." We are, quickly, going teats up."

    Way too much "Outgo," not enough "Income." All we got left is, temporarily, pretty good credit. But, that's not going to last too much longer. We gotta get busy, "Rat Now."

    First off, we're all taking "Salary Cuts," as of 9:00 This Morning. Then, we're going to cut our other expenses, "Energy, Inventory, Waste, RAT NOW." Turn off that light back there in the storage room; no one's there. You get my drift?

  14. THEN, Yours Truly, pipes up. We produce a lot of waste. We can borrow the money to build an ethanol still to turn that waste into fuel. Also, we cat trade that gas guzzling pickup in for a more fuel efficient model.

    That means, instead of costing $0.20 mile for deliveries, we can do it for $0.10 mile. Also, we can bring Cousins Jeb, and Judy back from Unemployment, and have them build, and run the still. It won't cost much more than paying the unemployment, and benefits.

  15. Next, we gotta look at our "Trade Mission" over there in the Middle East. It ain't working out.

    Seems like no matter how many of the bastards we shoot, they still don't want to "Buy Our Product."

    Let's wrap that mess up, and save that money. Hell, that would more than pay for our ethanol still. And, if we didn't have that added boondoggle we could lower our prices a bit.

    Or, use the money improving our plant, and becoming a little more efficient.

  16. I know one thing; if some fancy-assed consultant came waltzing in, and told us our problem was Uncle Joe's medical costs when he retired 10 Years From Now, we'd kick his ass out of the meeting so fast it'd make his head swim.

  17. Man, them birds out there are "getting it." They is busy. And, they ain't lookin' fer worms, if you get my drift. ;)

  18. Doin' like there's no tomorrow.

  19. They defnitly got the "memo." :)

  20. If them birds don't get "raptured" there's sure gonna be a lot more of'em come fall.

  21. This Planet we live on is a Marvelous Thing. We'll miss it more than it'll miss us.

  22. The surging Democrat is now ahead in NY-26. Big Deal? The Dems have won there 3 times since 1857.

    The Dem is running, almost entirely, against Paul Ryan's Medicare Proposal.

    The Pubs have figured out a way to "give it back." Go Pubs. Assholes.

  23. Maybe, it really Is the "Raputure."

  24. A man walks into a psychiatrist's office wearing only underwear made of Saran Wrap.

    The psychiatrist says, ‘Well, I can clearly see your nuts.”

  25. Are we still here?

    Is that a "good" thang?

  26. Huckabee didn't make it either.

    I knew it.

  27. You think they sent the invitations by USPS?

  28. Were we supposed to get on a "mailing list," or sumpin?

  29. Well, I made it. I think. I did feel funny in my stomach at some point during the day. It could have been that I forgot my Beano at home. And then on the way home we passed through a rain shower for 30 seconds and came out on the other side all shiny and bright. I was thinking that maybe we had entered into another world.

    Either way Y'all still have to put up with me.

  30. I'm thinking all the bad people were taken and the good ones were left.

  31. I'm also thinking that in this new life I'm gonna kick some sorry ass

  32. The hell with mucho macho man. They should have left that horse on the trap wagon.

    What is all this nonsense about the rapture and the end of the world?

    Maybe I misunderstood it all, but I thought the world still exists after the rapture just with some missing really good folk, ascending unclothed.

    Say, where's my wife, why are her clothes over there by the dishwasher?

    heh, I notice we are all here.

    Thought I'd throw in an ad for my wife who picked a winner today.

    Look up a
    Gato del Sol if you like Derby horses. We made some bucks on Gato.


  33. The good news is O'f-up has lost Florida with this latest move. He needs Florida.


  34. This rapture shit gives Christianity a bad name.

    Them's the kind of preachers I agree with Rufus about.

    heh, my daughter is in an argument with Toshiba. She's giving them some hell. My unraptured aura has ruptured my laptop again.

    Glad to hear your daughter is graduating.


  35. Obammie's a weird one, fer sure. Some of the times he appears, more or less, rational. And then . . . . wham.

    Of course, in all honesty, there's a lot of that going around.

  36. I about ruptured my ribs when I fell over in Moscow from too much uroxathal at the wrong time of day:0

    Now I'm in the safe keeping of my daughter who picked two winners today at the Cd'A Casino, which has really expanded as is first class.

    She knows her horses. She was telling me they got no ball joint in their front limbs. For instance. Makes sense, I quess, they don't sit on their ass and type.
    She is packing her horse tack now.

    Wal-Mart time.

    I knew Rufus would still be around..heh

    He already died once and was rejected back to here.

    But...then...the day's not over.


  37. My invite prolly came by email. I guess I need to go check it. If I can just remember my pin.

  38. Of course, with the water bein' up, an all.

    Ah, everthing happens late in Mississippi. Any time now.

  39. I thought maybe it would something more of a three day event.

  40. You know starting with the 'A' list first.

  41. Thass proly it. I know you'll find this hard to believe but sometimes I actually don't get invited to some o them more "high-falutin'" shindigs.

  42. Deuce probably made it.

    At least we know we'll go 'fore the fuckin' pineapple-head.

  43. Whit seems to be missing. And Sam.

  44. Now, Bob, and Melody's gone. Everbody's be "Enrapturated" but me. Ain't this just a mess.

  45. Well, damn, I guess the last boat has left. I might as well go to bed. See what "The Day After the Rapture" is like.

    Wonder if it's too late to make a deal?

  46. I ain't gone just napping while waiting my turn at daughter's computer.

    Quirk I'm particularly concerned about. Didn't he say he was going on a mission?

    This can only mean one of three things
    1) They've revoked his home detention once again and he's back at Fed Med
    2)He really is on a mission, with HabuHuDat, and, given their 180 degree opposite outlooks except for a sense of humor, it will end in a mutual killing
    3)He did get raptured, only a few days early, as vanguard, guide, hope and light for us all.

    All this rapture business seems to me, seen -ah, mythically heh - as an expression of a deep denial of earth and its ways, a wearying and a longing not to deal with all this shit any longer, which longing, while understandable after 50 or 60 years of dealing with all this shit, should never be communicated to the 'kids' or shouted from the housetops, but only spoken of in hushed tones in private. And where is spiritual progress likely to go better than here on earth? As Robert Frost said, it's the place for love. But really too, we all know that from the pastor's personal point of view it was all an effort to sell some books, and what a waste of precious forest product.

    By the way, where is the pastor, the Bahamas, or Tahiti?


  47. Bob On His Way To City Council Meeting In Work Clothes

    You got your cold bloods, your warm bloods, and your hot bloods.

    Cold bloods is big draft horses and such, warm bloods can be kinda mongrel, they be medium fast, hot bloods be fast and thoroughbred like. I'm learnin' stuff.


  48. And, she gave a wonderful analogy between Arnold the Austrian and the problem of surprise pregnant mares and such, the stallions often jumpin' the fence, so's to speak, less you on your guard real good.

    She quoted a comment she picked up in one of her horse blogs about these troublesome stallions.

    Anybody notice the Iranians are looking to Venezuela for some good lease land for some missile launching sites? Got that from Pat Caddell (sp) a polling pro from back when.


  49. yawn....

    in about 3 hours our dear leader will come and talk to me and my group here in dc.

    security will be tight...

    we have been instructed not to boo.. (lol)

    I have a private breakfast briefing that will last til 9am. Then we will get a nice cut in security line to get into the meeting ahead of the other 10,000 people. (rank has it's advantages)...

    no umbrellas, laptops ipads...

    thinking about taking some mini's from the hotel's bar before I go...

    so it will be interesting...

    LAST time of great leader spoke to me was in 2008 the day AFTER he took the democrat nomination, and when he did his words "Jerusalem will never be divided" lasted about 5 hours before his press office corrected and he "reversed himself"

    So ineffect?

    when obama speaks? he lies...

  50. Should have reported that the Idaho Fish and Game Commission will be holding hearing in July to decide on the wolf seasons and terms of justified retribution and righteous slaughter.

    I thought we had declared an emergency situation, why not open up immediately. These are good guys though, one saying it's a great day for Idaho, the salmon are in the streams, the steelhead are running, the dams are full, plentiful water for irrigation, the cavalry is coming over the hill to releive the elk, and Osama bin Laden is dead.

    Sam, I have never seen the Spokane River as high as it is now. That marshland on 95 near Cougar Gultch Road north of your grandfather's is flooded deep on both sides. Quite the sight.


  51. I should have added the hunt is expected to begin "in the fall."

    No mercy to the wolves, let the two legged predators with at least some minimal respect for the elk (we feed them when they need it and we can, after all) even things back up.

    Boo, WiO, boo.

    The booing needs to now begin in earnest.
