The State of The Onion Script - 2

The bad Shakespearean play which the fifth graders in Congress and the White House have been putting on is a waste of the air waves.

It is difficult to tell whether they are trying to sell Pepto Bismol or make utter fools of themselves, because their pseudo polemics are much like the sign to the upper left.

Since they are the only ones that won't understand that their ongoing pseudo polemics are utterly useless and deceptive, here is a clue for Boehner, Pelosi, Reid, and Obama: no sign = no sharp edges (so lose the sign of the times).

Current toxic, pseudo polemics are deceptive like the sign is, in the sense that if a transportation authority was to put up such a sign, the authoritarian followers among us would fill in the blanks for that authority, presuming the sign must have some legitimate purpose.

But those of us who do not blindly follow authority would read it and conclude that the sign is a pork barrel "Sign To Nowhere", perhaps a symbolic representation of this bad Shakespearean play acting itself out, or perhaps a piece of art that is symbolic of current political propaganda (the number one product of MOMCOM).

In the first post of this series, just before the last "presidential" speech (a speech to placate with pabulum) to the nation, Dredd Blog opined:
The Script Of The Union, or SOTU, is going to once again try to pat little R and D on the head for doing such a good job this past decade of imperialism induced economic calamity.

But of course "the condition our condition is in" will not be called the era of criminal insanity, the era of no-accountability, the era of too big to jail, the era of federal, state, and local government insolvency, the age of homelessness, 10-25% unemployment, the age of ultimate environmental pollution, nor will it be called what it is: more propaganda of denial.
(The State of The Onion Script). Dylan Ratigan picked up on the saran wrap of the bad script in this bad play, pointing out:
President Obama is going to give a speech on reducing the deficit. And I hope he lays out specifics instead of working with the Republicans to spring a secret deal on the public at the last minute. We need a debate on debt and what it means.

We heard last week about the brinksmanship of the Democrats and Republicans, how they almost shut the government down due to partisan disagreements. But as with so much in Washington, the real story is one of insiders colluding against us, the public. Here's Assistant Leader Democrat Jim Clyburn on my show last Friday, after I asked him where that $40B in cuts was coming from:
"Speaker Boehner is a consummate legislator and he knows full well if he starts identifying the cuts those special interests out there who may feel threatened by them will rev up their friends here in the body and may cause him some pain and suffering. So I think he's right not to identify those cuts and just deal with the topline number. So I'd have to defend him on that."
Now that's the real story. Neither Democrats nor Republicans would let anyone know what the cuts were until the decision had been made. And why? Because if people had a chance to see what was on the chopping block, they might not like it. Clyburn pretended like it was only those mean special interests who would oppose cuts. But come on. We know the lobbyists made sure their favorite programs were preserved. They managed to sneak into the budget funding for a failed DC voucher program, funding for a private and public audit of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau at the behest of the banks.

It's only we the people who weren't at the table.
(Dylan Ratigan). The purpose for the mealy mouthed speech of the president is to present a phony cover up of the reality that these bad actors have increased the war machine budget that is bankrupting the country; to cover up the reality that they have cut funds for the aged, the poor, and those who need help; and to cover up the reality that MOMCOM is responsible for all the economic wrongs.

The purpose of the MOMCOM media is to amplify MOMCOM's pseudo polemics as well as to give those toxic polemics a patina of credibility.

The media of MOMCOM will try to sell to the populace ideas the populace turned off long ago.

By and large the political figures and the media of the nation have lost their soul, their humanity, but they keep moving their lips to produce empty words as if the people have not noticed their infidelity.

What has been ignored by MOMCOM is that for almost a decade the large majority have told these creepy, criminally insane inhumane droids that we are going in the wrong direction.

These media droids (who have a built in boom box puking out these pseudo, toxic polemics) simply refuse to listen to the people because they think the people are ignorant.

They have misinformed the public on purpose to feed MOMCOM's own pseudo intellect and to make MOMCOM, the deceiver, feel superior to the people.
