No More Politics!

Don't give a shit about politics.
Religion is where it's at, but not
some religion stained by politics.
No! I mean a religion of no religion,
the kind Jesus was thinking about;
no left-right-left, marching as to war.
No more bombing to get more riches.
No more billions trying to buy our brains.
No more I say! No more! Running, running,
always running around like headless chickens,
after more, more! more shit and more POWER!
running for reelection from the second you get in.
No more of the greatness of greed and hate.
No more of the Great Pander and Plunder.
It's done. We're shutting it down.

I think he would vote for Totenkoph.
Whatever happened to him.?

give me that old time religion that Nietzsche wrote about
all about tribes and family and friends for me
Jesus is just alright with me, he towers over the men of the Old Testament.

No way Totenkopf, are you kidding me?
Though he was smart and necessarily nasty.
A Chess master. What is it about chess?

He seemed to be a troll. Hell I'm a troll depending on what you believe, but none of that has to do with the state of politics, which seems almost beyond repair.

I only mentioned him because you also mentioned no more religion.
. He was a theologian. or so he seemed to me. So religion has nothing to do with the state of our politics? Religion has plenty to do with it.

beyond repair
beyond despair
I don't know
Decadence, live it or live with it.

sorry I am wandering because I don't know what you are saying about no more religion no more politics, it seems vague but interesting —someone back in the sixties commenting on Steven Hawkins' work.

Yeah, I'm kinda all over the map there. Mainly the religion (and "holy wars") of this never-ending Talking Head- generated Left Versus Right (Donkey Versus Elephant) bullshit... as WE ALL get plundered (and incited)-- both "Left" and "Right" dittoheads across this great land. It's time to boycott that bastard! excuse my French. Just say NO. Loudly. (And even that rings hollow-- as if we could actually get a majority to snap out of their collective stupor and vote against BOTH major parties, even though that's what is badly needed.) People, the system is broken, okay? And don't get so twisted and wound up in its bullshit...

UNIMPRESSED with PELOSI. WITH THE TRUMP MOB. WITH HILLARY (seriously?) WITH "LET'S JUST DRONE BOMB 'EM" OBAMA. WITH THE MEGAMONEY PERPETUAL RUNNING FOR OFFICE FROM THE SECOND YOU GET IN... No, just say NO!

The origin of the word “politics” comes from Greek, and means “affairs of the city".

To "do away" with politics is a desirable goal, "it ain't gonna happen" is the fact. As long as there are people who gather into a neighborhood, a town, a city, a state or nation there will forever be "politics" and those who would love to be a part of it.

Of course, you know this as well as any reader knows it. That said, we needn't take part in politics and as good as that sometime sounds, the people will speak up and speak out for that which they approve of or disapprove of... every time. Hence politics remains part and parcel of an society, including a religious society. Even "saying no!" is a political action.

yawn... back to sleep now. we all need at times a retreat from people. :lol:

Perhaps "politics" wasn't the right word. Maybe "never-ending toxic sludge fight" would have been a better choice of words...

It's dead. There is no representative government. Of the people. Maybe there never was.

Then again, if you believe in a sellout to corporate interests (in our best interests), then maybe this is the best "representative government" we could hope for! After all, corporations are just people, right?

ps, did any of you happen to catch a recent article on the Net about how Homeland Security could use Eminent Domain to seize private land along the border for The Wall? (Because it's an Emergency of course...)
