Reflection from March 16th, 2015 @ Age 33
Haven’t heard Morrissey—nearly, since law school! And, yet, here I am again! ‘Cept, this time ;0)
@ Snowbird Cafe in San Fran(cisco, California) ;0P
It’s j.u.s.t. so badass —> of ME, n’all!
That took about 2 hours of wake up/prep time, but THEN, the magic—DID come out to play, and, LIKE the moth to its hunk’a hunk’a burnin’ flame a’love, butta course ;0)
I followed it!
I can’t hardly—believe..,
Heaven on Earth—actually EXISTS ;0)
At the Beachside Cafe, just down Judah Street, here—getting a burger, doin’ my life’s research…
Pure goodness, and joy—with clear skies to Heaven, o’er here in this girl’s mind.
Ohh! How could I forget?!!
On the long walk down here, to the beach—my 1st stop, was for my 2nd morning latte today. And, at that shop, I was explaining to the cashier guy—that I’m in town visiting, trying to find my way to something cool without getting lost in the process. The guy kinda looked at me funny, and then said some words—whilst I was realizing the key he was handing me, in the psychological processes. The key is to get lost..,
After all ;0)
First. The powers of governing still remaining in the hands of the [male, white-skinned supremacist], he will have a negative over the whole legislation of the continent. And as he hath shown himself such an inveterate enemy to liberty, and discovered such a thirst for arbitrary power, is he, or is he not, a proper person to say to these [United States of America], “You shall make no laws but what I please.” And is there any inhabitant in America so ignorant as not to know, that I, according to what is called the [former] constitution, this continent can make no laws but what the [male, white-skinned supremacist] gives leave to; and is there any man so unwise as not to see, that (considering what has happened) he will suffer no law to be made here, but such as suits his purpose? We may be as effectually enslaved by the want of laws in America, as by submitting to laws made for us in [the male, white-skinned supremacist’s la la land]. After matters are made up (as it is called) can there be any doubt but the whole power of the [male, white-skinned supremacist] will be exerted, to keep this continent as low and humble as possible? Instead of going forward we shall go backward, or be perpetually quarreling, or ridiculously petitioning.—We are already greater than the [male, white-skinned supremacist] wishes us to be, and will he not hereafter endeavor to make us less? To bring the matter to one point, Is the power who is jealous of [The United States of America’s] prosperity a proper power to govern us? Whoever says No to this question, is an independent, for independency means no more than this, whether we shall make our own laws, or whether the [male, white-skinned supremacist], the greatest enemy which this continent hath or can have, shall tell us, “there shall be no laws but such as I like.”
But the [male, white-skinned supremacist], you will say, has negative in [male, white-skinned supremacist la la land]; the people there can make no laws without his consent. In point of right and good order, there is something very ridiculous, that a youth of twenty-one (which hath often happened) shall say to several millions of people, older and wiser than himself, I forbid this or that act of yours to be law. But in this place I decline this sort of reply, though I will never cease to expose the absurdity of it; and only answer, that [male, white-skinned supremacist la la land] being the [male, white-skinned supremacist’s] residence and [The United States of] America not, makes quite another case. The [male, white-skinned supremacist’s] negative here is ten times more dangerous and fatal than it can be in [male, white-skinned supremacist la la land], for there he will scarcely refuse his consent to a bill for putting [male, white-skinned supremacist la la land] into as strong a state of defence as possible, and in [The United States of] America he would never suffer such a bill to be passed.
[The United States of] America is only a secondary object in the system of [male, white-skinned supremacist] politics— [the male, white-skinned supremacist] consults the good of this country no further than it answers [his] own purpose. Wherefore, [the male, white-skinned supremacist’s] own interest leads [him] to suppress the growth of [The United States of America] in every case which doth not promote [the male, white-skinned supremacist’s] advantage, or in the least interferes with it. A pretty state we should soon be in under such a second-hand government, considering what has happened! [Nazis] do not change from enemies to friends by the alteration of a name; and in order to show that reconciliation now is a dangerous doctrine, I affirm, that it would be policy in the [male, white-skinned supremacist] at this time, to repeal the [humanitarian achievements of the Obama Administration], for the sake of reinstating [the male, white-skinned supremacist] in the government of [T]he [United States of America]; in order that [THE MALE, WHITE-SKINNED SUPREMACIST] MAY [AGAIN] ACCOMPLISH BY CRAFT AND SUBTLETY, IN THE LONG RUN, WHAT HE CANNOT DO BY FORCE AND VIOLENCE IN THE SHORT ONE. Reconciliation and ruin are nearly related.
