Your Disgruntled Old Coot has not always lived in a shanty… a humble hovel mid-continent atop the cultural backwater of southern Missouri.
Hey!!! At least it is relatively cheap living here. It has to be; the wages are abominable.
Abominable is a high-falutin’ city-slicker way of saying “crappy.”
Missouri. A state. One of 50. 21 out of 50 in physical size. Highest point; Taum Sauk Mountain- 1,772 feet above sea level. If sea levels rise due to glaciers and ice-packs melting then the mountain will get shorter… technically. But bypassing clouds and birds will not notice any difference. Relativity at work.
For your viewing pleasure I now present you, with the able assistance of Wikipedia, the Missouri flag:
18th most populous of the 50 United States. According to US Census Bureau estimates the 2011 population is a little bit more than 6,000,000. Around a months income for some of our elite-class ruling masters.
Oh, wait. That 6-million figure is people counting, not dollar counting, but the thought conveyed is legitimate.
“The mean center of United States population as of the 2010 Census is at the town of Plato in Texas County, Missouri.”
Thanks again to the wonderful folks at Wikipedia.
Ponder that fact above, folks. If We, the People could coordinate our efforts we could get the folks to the east to jump up while the folks to the west are landing after jumping up.
Do that enough and maybe we could make the continent rock back and forth and those of us in the middle could watch stuff roll back and forth!!!! Wheeeee!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe the “continental tilt theory” could become a fact!!!
The continental tilt theory states that the North American continent tilts to the west with the fruits and nuts rolling along to fill California.
But with the continent rising and falling at both ends the fruits and nuts would meet in the middle of the continent; where Missouri is located!!!
NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We already have far more than our fair share of nutty, screwy and generally undesirable, anti-social and uncivil humanoids.
Well, it WAS a good idea… for a very brief time until I pondered a bit.
Something I fear very few Missouri politicians do. Proper pondering requires mental faculties I fear are rare among the emotion-laden illogical tripe-spewing politicians of Missouri and every nook and cranny within the USA.
The federal-level politicos are as bad if not worse than local or state government-level spewing political candidates.
Luckily for We, the People not ALL politicians are lackey figureheads of the elite-class and/or corporate USA and special-interest groups.
But too many are!!!
One of the reasons I am Disgruntled.
There are many types of disgruntlement. Around these here parts, y’all, I have been surprised at how many other ex-Californians I meet. Talking with them I ask why they left California. I was not surprised that there were often 2 or 3 reasons given and one of those commonly stated was to escape the many horrors in California caused by the HUGE influx of illegal aliens from the south and the bizarre antics of USA citizens who actively support the invaders.
Another instance of ethnicity overwhelming any attachment to the USA or the rules that supposedly guide We, the People that are intended to “grease the skids of society.” In other words; rules to assist in folks getting along with each other and to generally maximize personal freedom for the population as a whole.
Females are approximately 51.4 percent of the population, according to Wikipedia. That is a good figure but it needs to rise. A female population portion would be better at 75 percent or more. That preferred figure may assist in diminishing Disgruntledness in the Old Coot.
Poking through Wiki some more I read: As of May 2012, the state’s unemployment rate is 7.3%, while the nation overall is 8.2%.
Balderdash!!!! Propaganda from the ruling masters!!!
Wiki is not to be blamed for conveying facts and figures foisted upon the masses to assist in preserving the status quo so economically beneficial to a few while masses of USA citizens perform their proper roles as servants and serfs of the masters.
Oh sure, as I have babbled before, individual exceptions exist but I generally write of generalities.
Do a Web search about economic factors to realize reality, not the propaganda tossed to We, the People akin to a bone tossed to the dogs under the king’s table.
An image search using various economic terms reveals many graphs and charts that show me that most of us ARE peons with too many greedy vermin atop the socio-economic hierarchy skimming the wealth we create using a multitude of wealth-skimming methods.
Another thing to consider is the quality of jobs of those employed.
A job is not just a job… there are things to consider such as pay level, benefits offered, if any and is the job full- or part-time?
My observations indicate that there are many low-paid folks hereabout barely scraping by.
And the state and local (county, city, etc.) politicians and candidates continue spewing their idiocy.
To assist in keeping this discussion ‘clear’ when I write about the flood of political advertisements appearing on TV, radio, print media, etc. a politician who is up for re-election is a candidate, as is a spewing droid wanting to be a politician is a candidate.
Do not be confused by my writing, if such is possible.
Politicians in office mainly spew idiotic BS even if not involved with begging We, the People for a vote.
The most disgusting piffle usually occurs during the begging for votes period.
“Hey, Coot, why are you griping about those political ads AGAIN???!!!”
Why not? Putrid spewing candidates disgruntle the Disgruntled One immensely.
There has been some new inane idiotic babbling and spewing on the latest batch of TV ads.
One ad is aimed at a competing candidate declaring he is unworthy of a vote because he is TOO conservative!!!
And that “too conservative” idiotic spewing lies within a horde of other ads by MOST of the candidates that constantly spew conservative this and conservative that and how ALL Missourians MUST vote for conservatism.
It is a shame the babbling, idiotic, disgusting, near-brain-dead buffoons running for political office do not concern themselves with CONSERVATION!!!
A female candidate is begging for votes and has the Sarah Palin ex-politician urging folks to vote for the local politico babe.
Poor thing!!! Does she have a bug or something in her eye?
Maybe she bit down on a potato chip and the sharp edge was lodged between a tooth and her gums. Ouch!!!
I hope she obtained appropriate medical care.
Oh yeah, that TV ad.
Sarah Palin appears in the latest ad for the local female candidate exhorting the huge portion of the herd whose decision-making abilities relies upon emotions and emotion-based appeals.
Palin self-labels herself as governor of Alaska in the ad; likely to give credence to her begging voters to vote for the dame she is speaking well of.
Whoopie…. an ex-governor. She doesn’t say “ex-governor” in the ad but when using emotional appeals, as all vote beggars do, logic, rationality and educated thinking is avoided.
Quite logical, really, since studies and experience from past campaigns and awareness of human nature and reality demands the use of emotional appeals since so few voters operate at a level above and beyond an emotional level.
Thinking can be painful for many citizen-sheep!!!
Let’s read some more about Sarah Palin on her Wikipedia page;
“…received her bachelor’s degree in communications with an emphasis in journalism in 1987″
No mention of her GPA (grade point average).
Sarah and I have something in common.
Yes!!! We are both cute!!! Well, I am in a rough and gruff manly way and Sarah in a girly way but that is natural and normal.
And we both have a BS in Communications but I also had a minor in military science. I also have several journalism courses under my belt and learned how deceptive reporting can be and how it can be used by the mass media and its elite-class owners to brainwash the masses.
Even the seemingly simple act of omitting (leaving out) one or more facts in a news story can be an effective indoctrination act.
One act of omitting that grates upon me is when so OFTEN news stories purposely omit that a crime suspect or convicted criminal is an illegal alien.
If EVERY crime report inside the USA mentioned an illegal alien was involved when such an event occurred I believe the USA public would be appalled, aghast, madder than heck and not just demand but force the politician lackey figureheads to do their jobs and enforce existing laws that are too often ignored.
But, the USA public is powerless, especially at the federal level. The ruling elite-class masters, corporate USA, etc. own and control the majority of federal level
scum vermin filth putrid politicians and bureaucrats.
(Poll results above are common. The politicians ignore our wants.)
Too bad Sarah Palin is married. If she wasn’t I would allow her to drop by the shanty and take me out to a real nice place where high-falutin’ folks go to eat. Heck, I would even shine my shoes and wear a tuck-in shirt!!!
That vote beggar whose TV ad Palin appears on is also cute.
Since it generally doesn’t matter much who becomes or stays a politician since the system designed from the start by the Founders, the federal-level government, is intended to be owned and operated by an elite class (but not the HUGE wealthy and powerful corporate system of today) I have decided to vote for the cutest babe begging for votes or if only males are vote begging I will vote for the one most likely to piss off the general public.
I want to hear (read) the bleating citizen-sheep spewing THEIR emotion-laden tripe about a politician that did not or would not (very rare) appeal to their base uneducated emotions.
At the state level the vote beggars do not seem to be owned by elites and corporations quite as much as the federal
vile, scum, putrid, vermin politicians.
Local-level politicians are still often owned, at least in part, by local elites and businesses and special-interest groups but since local voters are often able to vote on specific local issues and are not solely dependent upon representative politics as at the federal level of political idiocy and rule by the masters, the vote beggars are not the incredibly vile vermin so typical of the federal figureheads.
Here is something to consider.
The mass media has enormous influence regarding who achieves the ability to have a reasonable chance of obtaining a federal political position or who is appointed to a bureaucratic position.
The elite-owned mass media does not have to lie about a vote beggar they do not want in office.
Just emphasize the truth or what is close to the truth. Perhaps an opinion of the vote beggar by a source acceptable to the citizen-sheep that puts the candidate in a bad light.
Or, another very effective method is little to no media coverage of the vote beggar not acceptable to the ruling masters, corporate USA, etc.
Without ample constant mass media coverage a vote beggar for a federal position is doomed to defeat.
For those wanting information about voting in general or seeking local information about your vote beggars try the League of Women Voters. I often rant negatives about what I perceive to be the typical USA female but I regularly declare in those rants that not ALL USA females are brain-dead buffoons awash in illogic and irrationality and emotion-laden bizarre thinking patterns and incredibly materialistic.
My decades of non-fiction reading and an inner drive to understand life around me has led to my negative opinions and conclusions about females in general… But not ALL females!!!
I have encountered females with ample logic and self-awareness and far-removed from the typical female idiocy surrounding me akin to a pack of rabid hungry jackals intent upon consuming me.
The gals involved with the League of Women Voters are performing a useful service to We, the People of the USA so give them a visit and see if they can assist you in deciding which vote beggar gets your vote.
For those using my method of vote giving the choices are much simpler.
Back to the spewing Missouri vote beggars at the state and local levels.
Shut Up You Slimy Scurvy Dogs!!!
You babbling fools have angered the Disgruntled Old Coot with your constant declaring that YOU are the conservative candidate.
Piss on you idiotic BEGGARS of votes!!!
Your emotional appeals to the Missouri horde of hicks is based upon human psychology but do ANY of you BEGGARS have ANY pride in your self?
In India there are reports of people maiming themselves, sometimes severely, so they can more effectively beg for alms (as I will likely have to if Social Security declares I am unable to prove the several rather sever physical ailments I have been confronting).
Similar appeals to emotions are used by our mentally-crippled vote beggars.
And if “conservative” as an emotional appeal appears to not be as effective as it was in prior vote begging alter it a bit and declare than an opponent is TOO conservative!!!
I would laugh if I was not so disgusted.
Disgusted to the point that my Disgruntlement level compels me to write this essay or whatever it can be labeled.
I am going to end this latest diatribe and wish every lucky, unlucky, confused, addled or perplexed visitor a wonderful week and may whatever makes you happy descend upon you in huge heaping scoops.
