“In light of new massacres we’ll say, ‘Our thoughts and prayers go out,’ and get more creative in spinning our involvement to stay profitable.”. —Official of the Gun Lobby



Weightless

Thoughts and prayers are easy. They’re weightless. You never have to break into a sweat to use them. They’re so diaphanous they require no effort to handle, but unfortunately, for that very reason, they’re useless in getting anything done. That’s why and how they’re thrown around so effortlessly. They require nothing of the prayers and throwers out of thoughts. They’re perfect for the effete and feckless, the weapon of choice for the hypocritical.

War Genie

February 10, 2018

The Big Vacancy does so love the trappings of war and power, although he himself avoided its brutality in his “own Vietnam” (as he once quipped). So, instead, he said, he had put himself in harm’s way during those bloody years heroically avoiding deadly STDs trolling female waters in calm seas suffering bone spurs.
.
By all means give him his war-toy parade, a moment to satisfy his imagination, a road crewchance to see himself an Alexander, a Napoleon, his  troops passing, honoring him with salutes, his missiles partially erect rolling by on caissons, his tanks chewing up pavement, inevitable road crews behind, covering his damage …his base applauding, applauding, applauding.
.
Trump is not the first Un Delirio to bask in visions of grandeur with a following:

……. history has seen at least one fool uncork a bottle thinking 
……. he could tame a genie only to end up shooting himself
……. in the head in a bunker after having created a losing proposition
……. producing 1. his corpse and 2. a continental Armageddon
