The Lame Duck, Wolf Pack, Bestiary Ball is Here. Meet the Guests.

Washington DC Politics

Bestiary Ball 

Concepts 
.
Lame Duck.  That is the limited time between old elections, and when the newly elected take office down the road.  The phrase stems, according to the BBC, from the English idea of one who cannot pay his debts merely waddling off; or Abraham Lincoln who is said to have said (to be vetted) that a lame duck is one that simply has to be provided for.  See http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-11739875/

With the new Congress made up of largely members of the Wolf Pack, see KNGDV. Tainted Founts. Dominion: Worst Concept in the World,
how will they celebrate?  

Wolf Pack.  This is the Wolf Totem Pack, those who follow the behavior of the chosen Totem.  See the belief system (and that includes ours traditionally, see FN 1) that ascribes traits to animals, and sees the animal world as here to instruct us, we learn from them, they are not just to be exploited and a source of profits. See FN 1.  What happens, then, when the Wolf becomes the Totem animal or spiritual guide of the political group in power? The Wolf Totem Pack goes to Washington! 

 Bestiary. No, not bestial.  Bestiary.  This is the medieval collection of illustrations of animals in their teaching role, setting examples, having messages for us. Some are fanciful, others are represented naturally. See FN 3. 

And Have a Ball

The House of Representatives opened its doors to fete the outgoing and incoming members of Congress; and the other members of the Executive and Judicial branches of government.  With the Wolf Pack in charge, with its legendary attributes, how will the totem tote?

The House of Representatives looks especially nice these days.  


Crazy House, Sopot, Poland *


There were pat-downs at the door. Of course, all the bad stuff was already in the kitchen cupboards, nobody brings bad stuff in as invitees any more, but it takes time to stay current. It took ages just to put this in place, and look at what it cost, and now they say nobody will make it necessary.  Go, mailman!



Pat-downs are hazardous duty. Note the fellow, foreground center, with one hand, and the line is still long. Men in skirts were encouraged to attend.

Detention centers?

.
This is from the last time.  Now:  the guests --
.
.
Mr. Boehner picks a spot and won't budge.
.
Round barns as inspiration.
.
.
The reporters all face in to the same provided chow bin, no further investigation of choices, no choices,eat of it what they like, and then it all comes out the other end in their reported journals and tweets. They eat what they are given.  Note, no windows for independent investigation. Nobody bothers anyway.  News is just entertainment anyway.
.
.
Business on Hold.
.
What happens to the Country's business during Lame Duck. Thinking people would prefer that any outstanding arms treaties be ratified and signed fast. The recalcitrant resident Bear says no way if credit goes to the other party for acting in the nation's interest.
.
And these are from our old stuff. Prints of people.

.
A master of non-plussery, is our President. And we are pleased.  Can't change Washington in 2 years.  Shall we say, another 100 is more reasonable?  Or that it won't change for anybody, anytime, anywhere, because -- oh, think of the cash gone by....
.
.
Nancy is light on her feet, or heavy when she needs to, and knows how to get the job done.  Harry is deceptively quiet-spoken, and weights options with care.  Both aimed right for each other for this one opening number. The majority Wolf Totem watched.  They should be nervous, right? Here are Omegas who aren't going to stay there.  Says Nancy, says Harry, we have our Eyes on the Alphas, even the Betas! Nobody gets to be an Omega! See http://www.manataka.org/page291.html ; and http://www.manataka.org/page236.html#WOLF  *
.
Now, for fear.
.
"Oh, what is to become of us?" cried the busloads inculcated by Armey.  "These people look different! They will take away our toys that we got with our inheritances!"  Wake up, said another voice. That is all a figment. Just a figment.  Now, get real.  

Weck up to thees! said another voice, outside the bus, gone before identified but the computers all went down.... (http://www.epinions.com/review/Gates_of_Fire_by_Steven_Pressfield/content_36435103364)
.
snuffle snuffle
.

Is that what I hear? In essence, sure.  But what if you let me in, and said it was ok by paying me, and giving me a place to stay while I was picking the crops for you?

Hang 'em high! came the response from Arizona and its minions. 



He likes to let his little light shine. He likes people doing as they are told. He likes to buy: things like ads for what he wants to have happen, and people who buy into them.  Then, he buys the people.

.
Who let them in?  Oh, they own the place? They own the people?  They own the people who write about their people? 
.
.
Not an original analytical thought among them. Is that so?  But ooh, the clothes. Now to the content: http://www.mediamatters.org/research/201006160017


But marriage only became a sacrament in the 1200's. And that was only to control the harpies. Update http://www.nytimes.com/2012/01/13/opinion/for-priests-wives-a-word-of-caution.html?_r=1&scp=1&sq=priests%20wives%20catholic&st=Search  What's the deal?  Do we have it right? Look it up. S-a-c-r-a-m-ent... oh, you know.  These folks aren't happy looking, are they.
.
.
His wife likes phoning.
.

That is a smile? If so, we are grateful for it. Not for much else, say folks who wonder why ideology is more important than sustenance for those who didn't get big inheritances. Why don't we take away that "entitlement" -- people get so dependent on those inheritances.  Takes away their drive to produce on their own, is that so?  Inheritances breed dependence.  Stop inheritances! What, says Mitch?  I said that?




Beware the bigos there.  Get your bigos earlier in the tapas hour.




Some folks just have to tell other folks what to do. 

Others just have to follow.


Then, again, they knew they were getting freebies, and how can you look ungrateful, and it does soften the brain for the ideology bit and the placards, also for free. 




And only one way to get there.  Ours.  Stay in line or else. 




.



And, our fave.  Among the guests is:


Always another opportunity to take advantage of. Money to be made! Nobody will complain if they get some of it. 

Take aim, Dick.  Good aim.




This playground area may be an adjunct to The Family, with favorable rents, ask Jeff Sharlett, but the paperwork is too hard to follow. Who makes the playgrounds possible?





Ow-w-w-ooOHHHHOOOoooo.  The Wolf Pack howls again.




Ha. Take that. No jobs is no excuse. Nine million jobs lost in the last decade before the New Regime, and you complain? Do we have it right, or was it 8,000,000? see ://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-jobs-lost-in-the-bush-and-obama-administration-2010-2


And perhaps content. Perhaps not. Watch the talk shows.




 No sharin' anything with that one. 






And that's the way the power shifts. Changes, changes. Wolf Pack in Washington.  Again.

Another day, more silliness.


Who is more pro-life than this?  Yup.

FN 1.  The medieval Bestiary and traditional Christianity 
.
A bestiary, in the middle ages sense, was a collection of illustrations, of animals displaying their traits, and in roles in secular and religious tales.
.
Christianity -- instruction, models.  Animals do that.  Job 12:7-10. See The Medieval Bestiary, at ://bestiary.ca/intro.htm (translations vary):
"But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of all these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind."
This puts Job in line with Native American spiritualism and other belief systems that value 1) unity of life forms, mutual benefit and restraint, and see 2) each form of life acceptable in a total ecological-creational systems, as strengthening and proper. See the KNGDV Tainted Founts, Dominion, site below.
.
FN 2.  Wolf Pack.   The Danger of One in Dominion. 
.
What to expect?  Look to the totem.Those belief systems also see dominion of one life form over another so as to exploit, as weakening and wrong. Dominion instead means, guide the creation as the god, dominus, domine, domina, would. See KNGDV. Tainted Founts. Dominion: Worst Concept in the World.  Instead, reject all that. Do what you want when you want without repercussion or responsibility to others. Run, prey, run. The Wolf Pack is back.  Bring on the profits, Job, with a long "o" or no Job, whatever makes a buck, people or animals -- you pick.
.
Still, there are vestiges of a more perfect world.

* The Crazy House, Sopot, Poland. We were there when the leaves were out, hiding its wonders behind foliage and more foliage. No photo for us. Just a laugh. Then this leaves-are-down view came by email viral photo, to us among thousands perhaps, not even identified as to photographer or the subject itself.  This is indeed the Sopot Crazy House we saw.
