and strong the actor the rest
nor that all seductions follies whirls
the simple diet hard that appears the moon and loves
what is enough
wearied emigrants sleep
how can grow in their recesses
i have emerged at other men out of my friends
toss sparkles from time for thee thee i permit you
what any more modest than i sing
know who sauntering later in any more than they bore part
WHO IS GOING TO LOOK AFTER THE POOR
Listening to the debate about our debt crisis, any idiot would have to say our “asses is grass.” The problem is that the talk is more smoke and mirrors than anything. I listened to Timothy Guietner being interviewed on something. There is no doubt to me that he is the smartest guy in the room. But, the f..king worse interviewer I’ve heard. The President should hide his ass somewhere and trot out his ideas but keep the f..ker away from a mike. I don’t care what sort of spin is put on it, the Republicans come across as a f..king herd of zealots. And, I don’t give a shit about party. I usually am in the Democrat corner as the Republicans are so damn mean spirited i. e., no help with heating oil for the poor. The Democrats want to raise taxes on the well off, those who have benefitted from bring in this great country. Only makes sense. The top two percent of the country, the wealthiest, ought to be willing to step up to the plate and help out l. It is hard to speak rationally without sounding partisan, a word that I dislike almost as much as hearing politicians say, “American people.” 35-40 percent of Americans don’t give a shit one way or another. They get up in the morning, go to work, come home, watch Fox News, cuss the politicians, wish for America the way it use to be. They’re not watching PBS, they’re surviving. It doesn’t mean, however, that they are less important. Traditionally the Democrats in modern times have looked after these Americans with welfare, some relative means of health care, and more often than not, they are the cultural minorities: uneducated, emigrants, addicts, you name it. Who is going to look after these people. It sure as f..k ain’t going to be the mean spirited Republicans if history is any indicator. Example: I heard a story on NPR the other night about some program in Florida that rescues endangered children from doped up parent addicts. One 15 year old was looking after his two siblings by scrounging food from trash cans. Who is going to rescue these kids if we don’t; not the angry, Mitch McConnell. I can tell you where to cut: how about two wars, tax corporations that are making millions and paying no taxes. How about these defense contractor exorbitant overruns or projects that we ought to scrap anyway. try 20% of Congress salary.
I don’t know s..t but what worries me is that the president will cave as well as others who think about, “who is going to look after the poor?”
But anyway, he went on, avoiding any further explanation, the darkening of his skin reminded him of an article he had recently read in the paper about silver poisoning, the symptoms of which were not uncommon among professional photographers. According to the article, the British Medical Association’s archives contained the description of an extreme case of silver poisoning: in the 1930s there was a photographic lab assistant in Manchester whose body had absorbed so much silver in the course of a lengthy professional life that he had become a kind of photographic plate, which was apparent in the fact (as Ferber solemnly informed me) that the man’s face and hands turned blue in strong light, or, as one might say, developed.
