Run, Hillary, Run: Tales of the Undead in Gotham City

Scarier than any Stephen King novel, scarier than the latest economic forecasts, scarier even than the prospect of another Obama term (well, almost), comes the latest news from my spies in Gotham City.

My spies, you say? Yes, it has been known for well more than a century that Alligators live in the sewers and tunnels of New York. In fact, many of them walk upright in business suits on Wall Street and Madison Avenue. But that's another story. Point being that I have reliable information about one of the most incredible occurrences in its nascent stage. Such a happening will confound most of the scientific community: the Arising of the Undead in Gotham City (aka the Big Apple).

This story revolves about an...well, let me give you the antecedents first. And a definition: Undead = a living being killed in front of your eyes, who then arises taking on new life. One of the the theories to explain this is that the Undead person sucks life out of a living being, killing it while preserving itself. The Undead Hillary has sucked the life out of hundreds of thousands, so she'll be around for centuries--ugh, maybe millennia.

Present circumstances in Gotham City, a metropolis in decay, sinking into pot holes and portions of the East River. Mayor Bumbling DiBlasio seems to have been promoted above his level of competence a la Peter Principle. Some may argue that he ever had a level of competence. Councilman and Senator Chuckles Schemer has been preparing the way for the emergence of the Undead (many of whom are known as persons in the Democratic Party). He, with the help Mr. Danger (aka Anthony, long dog Weiner) have cleared away many obstacles by massive deflection.

It may not be realized by many of you, yet, that Hillary Clinton is undead. First, many saw her die at the 9/11 ceremony in Gotham City. There is proof (something which so far have evaded detection by our feared 17 intelligence agencies.*

*Some of you handy with ability to count will find the listing only contains 16 agencies but that is because one is SO Secret, none of the other agencies know about it--but Obama does.

The other deadly event in the Undead Hillary's career that surely would have killed off a mere mortal was being crushed by a yellow-haired orangutang on November 8, 2016. In fact there are literally millions of witnesses to that seemingly mortal event.

Suddenly, the ground trembles as Hillary applies a fresh layer of makeup to hide her zombie pallor and she has her track shoes on. Hillary is going to run for Mayor of Gotham City!

But you say, she's a billion dollar loser ($1.2 B actually). Why would anybody want to bet on that nag? Hillary will make a donation to her efforts from the CGI (Clinton Gouging Initiative) to her favorite charity: herself. Do you think she'll let her ego get in the way. Her lust for power is inversely proportional to her morality (which means...well, you figure it out).

I was shocked. But having seen Medusa arise once from the dead on 9/11, I cannot say it was a total surprise.

All of this brings me back to my childhood, with tales of Edgar Allen Poe, Mary Shelley, Batman and Robin. No, even earlier than that. Remember the book used for many of us in learning to read? You know the one with Dick, Jane, and Spot? Yes, that's the one. I will now end this essay with an appropriate quotation from that book, which remarkably well expresses the feelings of many.

Dick: "Run, Hillary, run! Look, Jane, look. See Hillary run!:

Jane: "Don't be a Dick!"

Is that she just can't stop? Can she not refuse the flattery? Commander of Gotham City!

or-- is it that she'd better find some office quick smart to occupy or she won't have any clout to barter with on behalf of her precious Clinton Foundation: Providing aid for the retired (her husband) and embattled grifters across the globe?

I will stay tuned, sir, for upcoming developments. Who will be Commissioner? My knuckles are turning white.

The current working assumption appears to be that our Shroedinger's Cat system is still alive. But what if we all suspect it's not, and the real problem is we just can't bring ourselves to open the box?

While I was looking up 'what is CP time', a possible meaning belatedly occurred to me, and this both turned out to be true and my stomach, as well. How are people like that allowed anywhere NEAR public office in what's labeled as a democracy?

Psychopathy is not a political position, whether labeled 'conservatism', 'centrism' or 'left'.

A tin labeled 'coffee' may be a can of worms or pathology identified by a lack of empathy/willingness to harm others to achieve personal desires.

did she get on deBlasio's bad side? He's the consummate clinton lackey. She better not make me vote for him again just to stop her. I had decided that deB would never get another vote from me after supporting clinton this last go-round.

This is how the two-party 'lesser evil' two-party/offering system works for those who control them. This is why multiple parties are so essential to have even any pretense of democracy, to provide actual choice to citizens, and the same holds for other public offices as well. Perhaps some of the better-informed people in NY should start identifying, crowd-funding and promoting a suitable Mayor actually 'of, by and for the people' about now-ish? Not forgetting bullet-proof protection against 'suicide shots' to the back of the candidate's head. (Possibly snarking, but sometimes not all that sure...)

the machine is so strong in NYC it's very difficult to get around it. I was hoping that Teachout might run against deB, but not after her attempt at congress. I'd still support her, but she'd have to change address again and that will start to look bad in the general public's eye, I would think. There was a lot of energy around Sanders in NYC (not surprisingly), so hopefully that will convert into some new activism. I haven't really seen it yet, but we're still getting over the election.

That was kabuki. I am certain. DeBlasio owes his career to the Clintons and he's loyal to them. His holding back was a shtick to make his endorsement seem that much more important once he conferred it. IE: the uber progressive [sic] deBlasio finally supports clinon because she has convinced him she's committed to the progressive agenda. Snort. However, the Sanders surge short-circuited that plan and deBlasio came out quickly for clinton. You will note that nothing transpired between his seeming reticence and then full-trhoated support (except the rise of Sanders). deBlasio is a company man, an empty suit who talks a good game, but whose career is attributable mostly to his postmodern family.

I don't think anyone who knows NY politics ever thought that deBlasio would endorse Bernie Sanders.

turned out relatively well in the end.

I think he was more worried about some of the dubious characters in '30's Tirana wanting to knock him off the throne during the public events surrounding the wedding. He didn't spend a lot of time outside the palace compound. Chainsmoking and wearing lots of orders was more his cup of tea. Or coffee in his case.

The two regions need targeting, they are same: http://www.marketswiki.com/wiki/Pacific_Stock_Exchange

On September 27, 2005, the Pacific Exchange was bought by the owner of the ArcaEx, Archipelago Holdings, which in turn was bought by the New York Stock Exchange in 2006. The New York Stock Exchange Group, Inc., now NYSE Euronext, conducts no business operations under the name Pacific Exchange, essentially ending its separate identity.

Wall Street West, Wall Street East, Main Street reamed down middle. Flip those districts, build homes and schools, raise wages, that's what I think. Until then all is kabuki intended to distract from the ongoing pillage.

would make me happy. And I think a clinton run would follow the quinn model (just as the clinton presidential run did)- lots of backing from the monied, the media, the establishment, the cogniscenti[sic]- in short, "everyone who matters." But the people...ah, the people...wanted nothing to do with Christine Quinn. When she started popping up on CNN during the campaign, I thought, fuck no, please don't tell me christine quinn is going to get some kind of appointment from clinton. Fortunately not. For her and the scores of other scumbags feeding at the trough.

I wonder if I could get bojo'd in absentia.

Some there do seem to like to report at TOP regarding what members/ex-members have posted elsewhere and with which they disagree. On the other hand, knocking us all off likely brings official TOP membership numbers down considerably, perhaps to a relative few, which might indeed be revealing.

Well, she's currently been stopped from gaining any current public position where she can actively participate in dispossessing, maiming, utterly fracking poisoning or otherwise killing any women or children at home and around the world, so I suppose that'd be her personal - if unwilling - contribution to making their lives better?
