Why is this all unfolding now? Hubble's recent mysterious luminous apparition, Wall Street's bust, an African American rising to the presidency, Mayberry RFD revisited by Miss Mediocrity and going against it's own Saviour. All this and more as this election nears...

 

Sweet were the days when all some were concerned with was the bad blow job choice a president had made.

It proved a severe and politically effective attack seized upon by morally blind, power hungry, insecure, fear-ridden Red Collar Gang that would compromise everything. Including their own souls (whatever substance of therein) to undermine anyone else's good will and contentment. As Ochs sang in similarly turbulent times, "Ignorance is everywhere, and people have their way".

They indeed had their way, their unfettered fill. For some eight years. The recent rotten fruits of such morally blind, self-righteous, self driven are obvious now. Iraq. The World economy in collapse. Domestic and International security kaos. American culture, DEAD.

Insane as it all is, Americans still care. Some pray, but do “gloss over” the inconvenient details of moral responsibility their churches teach. They eat really bad food, suck on dead religions singing pathetic, ugly pop music excuses for transcendent liturgies that merely titilate their bad taste and have nothing to do with the Divine. Eventually it gets so bad, the lies so exposed, some rise above the squalor, have the pissed off persistence to fix some Shit and call the Assholes to task for excreting it. Independent voters in the battleground states post the Palin debate are doing just that. In a majority.

Hubble did recently pick up an unidentified light that appeared and disappeared. Was this an oracle of more terrible or wonderful days to come? An Al Quida factor as the election draws near? A rebirth of Hope and rational exuberance as Obama/Biden come to power?

The People’s Lion, Ted Kennedy, keeps watch. the falling Market struggles with its Ripcord, Mayberry looks for jus sum Gud Ole Gal for salvation. The scientists still don't say what that light was that recently mysteriously appeared in Hubble's distant view and disappeared.

This optimistic writer looks to the informed, the enlightened, the compassionate to predict that outcome. And they seem to be coming into power soon.

Astrophysicists watch, the Lion observes, the Market is stilled still, pitbull Sarah chases her tail, while her Maverick died all those years ago.

Why is this all unfolding just now, a few weeks before the American election?  

Rilke states, "Everything is gestation, then bringing forth".

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
