Dreamers dream of philosopher-kings

Or a knight who will slay all their dragons

While the dark side dabbles in dullards and dolts

And the paranoid circle the wagons

The shining knight failed to live up to the hype

And wandered too close to the middle

So dreamers decry that he didn’t even try

That Rome burned, while he played the fiddle

Meanwhile, the dark side devolves to the depths

Fills the air with their ignorant prattle

Waving the false-flag of free-marketeers

They follow like fools into battle

Dreamers decide they will sit this one out

And wait for their sinless messiah

While savages pillage the village and shout

Heed not this false Jeremiah

Maui   Well, I certainly cop to a perverse sense of humor, but that's better that not having one at all

How perverse is calling oneself's self Little Voltaire  ?

Great White Hope is what they wanted.

Great White Dope is what they got.

Ron- you are absolutely right, 53% of USA Whites voted for a Confederate Yankee because he told them he would fight for what is White. Well, he is no John Boehner and certainly no John Birch, he is a phony, a fraud, as Sen. Romney, no stranger to identity politics, but who at least had a father who was a fine man and not a KKK member, called him ... and who would know better?

It is good and well perfectly.
Or is it love and affection?

Maui  Perverse,, but not nearly so perverse as saying  "I could shoot somebody on Fifth Avenue, and my people would still love me" or "I alone can save you" or "I'm smarter than all my generals" or "I deserve the Nobel Peace Prize ... well, I think you get the idea

Ron  Methinks this might turn out to be a case of giving a dope enough rope, to hang himslef – or at least that's what I hope

Maui  Did you see where Boner is now pushing weed? Hypocrisy knows no bounds with these assholes. I'd bet a chunk of change Boner's been smoking dope for years, all the while raling against it.

JP Hart   I thought I was wrong once, but I was mistaken. Sound like something that might be said by this perfectly awful president

Yeah, saw that, the ultimate sell-out. Boehner grew up in a bar, if you are trying to tell me no one ever slipped outside to burn one while leaving the napkins on top of their drinks I do have a bridge to sell ... one thing, he did know how to run a political ship, and he sure knew when to bail overboard. He's still a total dick, don't get me wrong, just could have taught that pee-wee numskull Ann Randian elitist punk ass bitch "Speaker" Paul 'lyin' Ryan a thing or two before he left, though I'm glad he didn't and instead we saw the emperor and his hand maiden, both with no clothes for two years. Pelosi is both giving these two credulous fools lessons while mopping the House Floor with them both .... herstory will NOT be kind.
