Professional, Polite, Prepared to Kill

The lights are out… Commentary by JD Pendry

“I have always loved longitude. “I love latitude; it’s in the stars. But longitude, it’s about time. … Time and clocks and all the rest of that have always been a fascination for me.”

“I’m trying to save the planet; I’m trying to save the planet.” – Speaker of the People’s House, Nancy Pelosi

When the Speaker speaks, lights out is one descriptive thought that comes to mind. I also see hair filled with daisies and butterflies and chirping birds merrily circling her botoxed head. Occasionally a sharp tongue zots out and an unsuspecting and cheerfully circling blue dog bird is returned to the flock, wings bobbed and featherless. The hapless butterflies continue to flutter by focusing on matters critically important to the people of the serfdom like legalizing pot. Such is life in the enchanted kingdom where the problems are always caused by others, but never solved by anyone.

Out in the serfdom, visions of striding over rainbows have been replaced by the less lofty vision of mere survival. The serfs work hard to meet their tax obligations to the kingdom, the agents of the Imperial Revenue Service ensuring that every copper penny owed is collected. The serfs spend their spare time scouring the imperial woods for twigs to heat their homes as winter approaches. Mansions in the enchanted kingdom, where all is well, are warm and comfy. Children in the serfdom fall asleep at night with visions of life in Castle Algore. The cost of fuel is of no consequence to royalty. They cannot focus on such frivolous matters. What is important is that the knaves must be saved from themselves. They must be told what to eat, what mode of transport to use and how many twigs they may put into their fireplaces. The speaker of the enchanted kingdom reminds us, it’s in the stars. I’m trying to save the planet.  More from
