The Momento Mori of a Pimp Fiction]

A diatribe found on the subway by the editor of The Commentarian Blog in the form of a spiral notebook entry printed in pencil, not HB, but much much darker, and I mean printed, not cursively written. It was dated the fiftieth anniversary of JFK’s assassination, “a day that should be commemorated by every lover of liberty, but not for the reasons you might imagine,” our anonymous polemicist said. The piece herein is presented in its facsimile form, photo copied and scanned and then uploaded here in The Commentarian’s Blog . . . we do wonder if this was written non the day it is purported to have been written, by the date line at the top of the page, or if it were written at another time, perhaps even as a fictional account, re-presentation, what else could we have in words to say what it would if this man were writing this as a fictional diatribe . . . we do not know.

Herein lies the piece as found by the Editor/Blogger-in-Chief of The Commentarian:

The fiftieth anniversary of JFK’s death should also cause us to remember that his “Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country” was a death knell for democracy in America. But being the boobs we are, that one goes over most heads. Try it. Ask if that does not sound like what we now have with government, Republican or Democrat doing little to nothing more for any of us, the People?

JFK was no old New Dealer with a conscience for service, no. His Presidency  marked the beginning of the end of government doing anything for the people, marked the beginning of the end of the People being central to what government is entrusted to do. This has been increasing over the last five decades until we have reached the moment in our history where government barely does anything at all for the Public who are the People in complete service of the State, let alone the People, who must remain separate from their role as a Public in order to remain the counterweight for the State.

This is what Kennedy meant by his “Ask not”; he wanted a State that controlled over the People . . . and fuck most of the scum-bag charlatans (andI did have a woman once ask me if it were appropriate to use scum bag as a term of derision for a woman; can a woman be a scum bag; thus, can a man be a bitch; both can be bastards [I have dispensed with the italicizing . . .]). So, what have I said, Hilary Clinton cannot be a scum bag? Donald Trump is certainly bitchy if he is not or cannot in fact be a bitch. No sense of service, no dedication to Truth, only corruption and not even a remote idea of what it would mean to do anything for The People–John F. Kennedy; the grand pimp of the White House.

Do we have a sense of what We the People even means? I doubt it. To commemorate his death as if a great champion of freedom had died is a travesty of Democracy, it is an absurdity paramount . . . John Kennedy had no moral center and no desire to serve the People. He had contempt for the people; the truly first Media President molded in the image of the image mongers, hawking the wares of their degraded ideas. I had a friend whose father recalled that the first words that passed his lips when he had heard that JFK was dead was “Good!”

Your conclusions are your responsibility; they are of your own consequence.

Help! Help! Help! {Flash Fiction}

A comment to an entry in a blog of a website dedicated to political commentary.

Why we continue to hope against hope, judging black men by a different set of standards than we do others . . . one extreme to another. Obama has proven no less corrupt than any other white politician has been. The time of equality has arrived?

A diatribe written as a comment to a blog entry criticizing the President for what people usually criticize presidents for, only without the balanced rhetoric that might make it closer to what is true, rather than what rings true for one person in his vehement dislike for the President–something I could not myself muster, have not been able to no matter how much like every other president I have disliked he has been–and which president I have liked these last forty years I cannot say, would not be able to say because he does not exist–and this is the point. If we are going to say that Obama has not been any less corrupt than any white president, then perhaps we need to say as well that he has not been any more corrupt. But then this jumps the gun, does it not, saying ahead of time what has been said, and I now have no idea why anyone would even read what I have included here. Unless, of course, I put it after the entry, which I now have [I purposely left this entry worded as I had worded it before I shifted the position of the blog-comment quote], and so now you can disregard what I have written about this being ahead of what was written, or what I have herein quoted from a comment posted to a blog entry that criticizes the President heavily and that means heavy handedly. The comment herein attached can only be found on cached pages as the website for which this comment was a reply to, the blog of this website, does not exist any longer. What more can I say on this?
