Blue Turtle Shell Syndrome.


You will see when you watch the Republican Primary and when you play Mario Kart the key similarity is that if you get too far ahead then all the other players behind you will gang up on you and you will be destroyed thus being drawn pack into the pack. The key weapons against the leader is the blue turtle shell. The Blue turtle shell when fired by anyone from the rear of the pack will, invariably and without deviation seek out the leader and crush him or her. They will fly into the air unable to race as they watch the other players zoom below thus taking from them the one thing that they want, the victory of a three lap race. The hideous lapping of the Republican Primary goes on forever and ever and ever, probably, but it has much, in this instance, in common with the day glo excitement of Mario. Probably. My advice to candidates is to Beware the Blue Turtle Shell. My advice to players of Mario Kart is to vote.

10 reasons why politicians are like crack addicts.


It is true that Politicians want votes and Crack Addicts want crack yet there the differences seem to end:

  1. They will say anything to get what they want. 
  2. They will do anything to get what they want. 
  3. Once they have what they want from you they will ignore you. 
  4. Their facial expressions stay too long in one position. 
  5. They have a very loose relationship with reality. 
  6. After they have got what they want they will have feelings of euphoria, supreme confidence and a craving for more. 
  7. If they don’t get what they want they will devolve into a pit of self-destructive paranoia. 
  8. You don’t want to go round to their house. 
  9. You don’t want them in your house.
  10. You check all your pockets once they have left the room.

Lessons from the past #23


(I stole this thought from another blog that I barely use)

As I happened to be reading Democracy in America by Alexis de Tocqueville, this Sunday morning, I came across a passage that resonated as regards the current and approaching Circus. Here I share it with you now:

For a long while before the appointed time is at hand the election becomes the most important and the all-engrossing topic of discussion. The ardor of faction is redoubled; and all the artificial passions which the imagination can create in the bosom of a happy and peaceful land are agitated and brought to light. The President, on the other hand, is absorbed by the cares of self-defence. He no longer governs for the interest of the State, but for that of his re-election; he does homage to the majority, and instead of checking its passions, as his duty commands him to do, he frequently courts its worst caprices. As the election draws near, the activity of intrigue and the agitation of the populace increase; the citizens are divided into hostile camps, each of which assumes the name of its favorite candidate; the whole nation glows with feverish excitement; the election is the daily theme of the public papers, the subject of private conversation, the end of every thought and every action , the sole interest of the present. As soon as the choice is determined, this ardor is dispelled; and as a calmer season returns, the current of the State, which had nearly broken its banks, sinks to its usual level: but who can refrain from astonishment at the causes of the storm.

Thus do we continue to return to the thing that we try to escape from.
