Battle of the Bulge

In a driving-cold rainstorm with snow coming down in the higher elevations on the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge – or as the other side called it, Unternehmen Wacht am Rhein  (Operation Watch on the Rhine) – here I get to sit and watch “Kelley’s Heroes” on TeeVee – which begins in a driving rainstorm. More brandy please.
There are multiples of overlaps and co-incidentals, it’s a beautiful thing/movie-dream, but we will not be fighting the Wehrmacht anymore, everything will be much closer to home, and that is so worrisome.
There are People of the Socialist Bulge, right here and now among us who are ready to get something started – they are desperate to validate themselves and a proven-FAILED ideology, by starting something based on lies and emotion alone.
They are like teenagers with whiskey, matches, dynamite, and car-keys…and they are oh-so drunk. They deserve nothing, already have everything, and seriously don’t understand ONE GODDAMN SINGLE THING. They want a fight but the fight they want will not go their way – however their blood-lust must give way to something.
It’s Christmas and most people just want jobs, ways to keep their families together, and presents for their children under the tree. But these ones think that’s ALL just the Evil Ogre of Capitalism, and they infect every sloppy word they speak with politics, a skewed world-view, and their inchoate hatred of “Capitalism.” It’s really gonna be pathetic and desperate, sickening and pretty terrible – and immensely sad.
And brutish – as ISIS and Islamic Militants have already shown, the Barbarians are here NOW. They televise themselves. They exult in savage and sick and inhuman behavior. It makes them feel good – that and all the variety of drugs they take – but no Alcohol!
We should not be here at all, but the Media keeps egging it on because tragedy brings headlines and they are also on a short leash. The “Media Empire” and the ridiculously high-paying jobs for the incestuously connected Pharaohs of teleprompter regurgitation is really very fragile – and even more-so in a tumultuous and digital world where they have lost control of The Narrative and their ability to guide and shape opinion. So don’t expect much from a business that caves-in to cheap tin-pot Dictators by revealing the smelly, dark, rupture-ridden underbelly that we all already knew was there.
They sell-out themselves and each other on a regular basis, it’s part of Media Cannibalism which so many love to watch…
This really is becoming the Endarkenment.

    Dirt, you’ve stated the nascent civil war, and its cause, so succinctly.
