As Plato said, “only the dead have seen the end of war.” We as Americans have been recently ruled (unless you really believe the republic is not a mummified corpse) by a mass murdering Nobel Peace Prize winner, and now, it appears, by a Zionist whiz kid and the usual suspects from the neocon branch of Tel Aviv on the Potomac.

I have sniggered when the breeze changes and the delicate scent of diesel mixed with human dung titillates my olfactory sense. The wise men tell us that it is not hydrocarbon marinated turds we smell. No indeed! This is different. Do not worry America you will not be taxed to support the ‘ necessary ‘ wars now planned against the entire world by the Asylum on the Potomac. Dear fellows, fear not. We will borrow and print the required funds. You need only send us the best of your sons, and yes, we now have need of your daughters as well.

Freedom! USA! USA! USA! Ah, I feel better now.

“Of all enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germs of every other. War is the parent of armies: from these proceed debt and taxes. And armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended. Its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds are added to those of subduing the force of the people… No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare”.

– James Madison (Political Observations, Apr. 20, 1795 in: Letters and Other Writings of James Madison, vol. 4, p. 491 (1865)) (The USA has been at war for 93% of the years since 1776)

My thanks and salutation to dear friends Craig and John for seeding and watering my well composted brain. It is they who birthed the ideas that led to these expressions. Responsibility  for carrying and emptying this night soil remains the burden of the author alone.
