Fallen Curtains

Total Eclipse’s Total Eclipse

`

It was within this past Sunday evening’s waning hours when our Universal Overseer aligned, to perfection, our inner solar system’s essential spheres; namely, the Sun, Earth and Moon; thereby (at least in theory) presenting astronomers (accomplished and amateur, alike), one of the few, awe inspiring delights still remaining in modern life.

Alas (as usual), all did not go well for all of us Michiganders. At the most inopportune moment, storm clouds rolled in, start to finish, to totally eclipse this total lunar eclipse.

In other words… the literal clouds; the metaphorical “fallen curtains” had overruled; ruined all our fun.

While most dedicated sky watchers are left little choice but to take, in stride, such dismal celestial washouts, it’s my contention that Great Lakes Staters, such as moi, have been forced to weather far more than our share of the absolutely, disproportionate levels of disappointment.

Such is our sorry “lot” in life (both in the cartographical / geographical and metaphorical sense).

The grand scheme’s far less stellar elements can and do come into play, too; e.g., lifelong occupational and financial disadvantages that still continue to bog down my homeland’s and home state’s citizenry; this all piling on additional disproportionate levels of our shared disappointment. Once again, fallen curtains syndrome.

Yet another relevant to this discourse aspect revolves around one’s relative position on life’s road; in my own case, the nearly seventy Earth orbits behind me along with the expectant, tagging along, alarmingly fewer “laps” before me. Yep, once we reach the onset of “aging out” within society, an entirely unique, awareness heightening perspective kicks in; summed up best as yet, another example of our bearing witness to the fallen curtains.

Consider, too, the looming, far deeper levels of disproportionate disappointment, which our dystopian “leaders” are ignorantly and/or intentionally leaving unchallenged and unchecked.

As I type and you read these very words, these autocrats are allowing humankind’s Final Act to practically author itself. It’s tough NOT to view our collective presence upon the world stage as all but over; such an ill-fate seemingly, already hammered and chiseled into our communal tombstone; all but awaiting those final fallen curtains.

The detailed rundown to The End…

Fragile Earth moldering diurnally; environmentally
Untold (f)lawmakers legislating; unconstitutionally
Coronavirus variants sickening slaying; microbially
Killer sociopath Putin dying to blow up; atomically
Expletive laced acrostic spelling our fate; vertically
Downward fallen curtains; End of Earth; eventually

Yра? Yippee?

`

So, on this very day, Russians are “painting the town red”; in more ways (and nations) than one.

Why?

May 9th is their national holiday known as Victory Day.

What’s it all about?

“The day celebrates the Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany in World War II. It includes military parades in Moscow and more than two dozen Russian cities.

So far, so good… YET… that fails to tell the whole story / expose the…

Glaring Hypocrisy:

While Russians correctly cry out “Yра!” (translation: Yippee) re the downfall of Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich, due to their being heavily under the influence of agitatsiya propaganda (agitprop) they also, hypocritically echo that “Yра!” (as a show of support for their resident psycho misleader; Vladimir Putin; aka the Hitler wannabe, who’s been rolling out his attempted (so far, fortunately failed) Nazi-esque, unwarranted invasion, occupation and domination of Ukraine.

Tragic Reality:

On this May 9th (and ever since 24 February 2022) whenever Ukrainians cry out, this, typically, is to express their outrage and heartbreak over Putin deploying his marauding, maiming and murdering troops to repurpose hemoglobin; as a means to paint Ukraine’s towns blood red.

Moral to the Worldwide Masses:

People who utilize their noggins, regularly, respectably and constructively never take the plunge into propagandists’ puddles of anti-democracy diarrhea; the type of $#!+ that’s ceaselessly aired and streamed by Stateside networks such as Fox News, OAN, Newsmax, et al.

Definition of Character:

Propagandist: (improper noun) (humorous?) An anatomical mutant over-endowed with intracranial extra-large intestines; that alimentary canal’s exit orifice located beneath the nose.

Five Points of No Return?

PREFACE: It’s not just mindless flag waving when my words stress the significance of America’s role on the world stage. I merely mention it because the collapse of any Democracy can only destabilize, perhaps even destroy, said world.

`

`
The commonly held belief is that we humans tend to obsess over worst case scenarios that rarely, if ever, actually reach the absolute point of no return. Let’s keep a good thought that such wisdom is fully applicable to the following (worst of the worst) situations. In a sense, these could all, someday soon, easily, wind up as news headlines…

  • Failure to promptly curb climate change to hasten humanity’s extinction
  • Russia’s backfired Ukraine occupation triggers nuclear WW-III escalation
  • Coronavirus whack-a-mole variants flat-out defy containment/eradication
  • Americans’ incivility/hyperpartisanship spurs Civil War-II factionalization
  • Fascism/Theocracy trumps Democracy/Liberty; spawns U.S.A. obliteration

Regarding that last on the list item… I’d like to point out that, in the weeks prior to Donald J. Trump’s January 6th, barked out, storm the U.S. Capitol command to his MAGA maniacs, it’d been the most unlikely person within Trump’s entire retrograde / renegade régime, one Vice President Mike Pence, who, for a fleeting moment, had managed to un-sell his soul. Indeed, when push had come to shove, for perhaps the very first time in that Republican miscreant’s entire deplorable political career, he had opted to do the honorable thing; i.e., certify then President-Elect Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory; i.e., gallantly come to Lady Liberty’s rescue.

Alas (Part 1): Seeing how the still seething with fury, vengeance seeking, big lie promoter, little snowflake Trump has yet to get his 14th Amendment stipulated comeuppance, and in all likelihood NEVER will, it’s still totally legal for him to seek reelection as early as 2024.

And, win or lose, that insurrectionist bastard could still do his damnedest to suffocate American freedom / burn down Democracy. He still has his entire entourage of low friends in high places (U.S. “legislators” / SCOTUS “justices”) and low friends in low places (his sycophantic Klansmen / Nazis / Proud Boys / media propagandists et al), who ALL have his six.

SIDEBAR: To flesh out the 14th Amendment, in essence, any elected official found guilty of fomenting insurrection against the United States of America shall forever be banned from ever, again, seeking high elective office.

Alas (Part 2): Seeing how Trump has already totally nixed the notion of Pence ever, again, being his running mate, his next VP choice will, little doubt, be someone certifiable / bat crap crazy; the sort of creature who’d slither out from under his/her rock and, no questions asked, hiss out “YESSIR!” and or rattle out, “ON IT!” to whatever that orange, fascistic freak commanded.

Let’s keep a good thought… that there’s still a goodly amount of good people, who can be counted on to know when they must say NO to malefactors (especially of the Trumpian variety).

Before it’s too late… humankind must conquer all five of those above bullet pointed issues; before such woes conquer us all.

Fascist Freak

`

Onto each rally stage, the Fascist Freak ambles
With his one scant brain cell, reality scrambles
He ceaselessly lies; boasts, babbles ‘n’ rambles
Barfs misogyny ’n’ bigotry; prickly as brambles
Badmouths Democracy; bulldozes to shambles
With Humankind’s fate; compulsively gambles

Paying Attention To Detail

`

I’m not here to bog you down with yet another detailed rundown of the ecological, ideological and virological crises that stubbornly continue to confront contemporary society. Suffice to say, the feverish, triple comorbidities of man-made climate change, invading incendiary Vlad, and the still “hot on the trail” coronavirus / variants amply speak for themselves.

Rather than rehashing any of THAT I’ve opted to discuss one particular, deleterious side effect, which this triple whammy has been having on me; perhaps you too?

I’m referring to how unproductively worrying about all that crap can easily plunge our biorhythms into a state of utter chaos; in particular, the sleep cycle; thereby plunging us into a rundown condition.

More to the point… we all must be on the lookout for the telltale symptoms; in particular…

Not Paying Attention To Detail

That I have such a prob does go way beyond my yawning a lot. That became all the more evident upon reviewing my April, WP posted content. To my astonishment (and mild embarrassment) I discovered word usage anomalies, sloppy syntax, spelling errors, typos etc.

To e.g. just one of my blunders… the usage of “chose” when I had intended “choose”.

Granted, within the blogging world, this tends to sound trifling, however, what happens when sleep deprivation fogs over the real world?

To e.g. that… consider the quality (or lack thereof) of tasks being carried out by the surgeon, commercial airline pilot and air traffic controller; hell, even the rush hour motorist? What of the nuclear power plant technician? The general keeping a watchful (bleary?) eye on the radar screens ISO (Vlad’s) nuclear missile launches?

Best advice, as each day draws to an end, we must all…

  • shut up all who air and stream bad news
  • shut down our device’s bright screens
  • shut our eyelids
  • shut off our minds and bodies
  • secure 8hrs of shut-eye (same time each day*)

* preferably night

Who knows? During our REM phase, we might even wind up dreaming up ways to shut down that ecological, ideological and virological mess we’re in.

At the very least… the odds of our working toward society’s betterment can only get better when we’re fully rested and…

Oh Shiitake!

`

Propagandist’s profession; spew fake news; mind pollute
Owned by Big Biz / Big Gov pimps; he’s their prostitute
Akin to an anthropomorphous, vending machine
Dispensing shoddy commodities; wholly obscene
With plinked coin / pushed button, the truth he shall trample
Disinformation, diseased, disseminates; for example:

`

Climate change twisters spin out, as balmy spring breezes
Covid-19 downplayed, to mere sniffles and sneezes
Trump’s Jan 6th insurrection, just pranksters, uh, playing
Kneeling playmates / porn stars; in cathedral pews praying
Question Stormy’s “short” story, for X-prez sports yuge penis
Vlad’s threat to “serve” mushrooms, just Shiitake genus

Evaluation of Vlad (Quick Limerick)

Mental illness can be so subliminal
Heads of State shun Headshrinkers’ regiminal
For instance, Vlad’s addled brain
Drives him to ravage Ukraine
Join the ranks of rank, savage War Criminal

What Future?

A wise and witty WP blogger concluded his most recent post in the form of a question…

“Have you ever experienced a future so unlike anything you’d expected that you simply had no basis for knowing what to do next?”

Blogger M.T. 04/02/22

My short answer… YES!
My somewhat longer reply:

Are not all of us, who harbor, hone, honor and hold dear our critical thinking skills, already experiencing such a “future”? One that, indeed, is so unlike anything, even in our worst recalled nightmares, that there’s no way in hell that we could’ve ever envisioned and expected it.

Let’s take a closer look at this (far from complete) list of wide-awake, real world nightmares.

  • War criminal / occupier Putin’s nuclear saber rattling
  • The climate change crisis that may prove irreversible
  • The global coronavirus pandemic’s untold fatalities*
  • A looming insurrection that could trump January 6th

* 6 Million+ (worldwide) / 1 Million+ (stateside); and still counting!

Upon factoring in corporately owned and operated, know nothing / do-nothing obstructionist (f)lawmakers and their unconstitutional voter suppression (f)laws, how can we begin to formulate even a rudimentary what to do next game plan?

While what follows is tongue in cheek, this pretty much does sum up my exasperation; my evaluation re just how screwed over humanity really is…

Hey Klaatu! Hey Gort! Hey any learned, kindhearted ETs out there… way out there!

Where the hell are you when we really need you?
