A Bum Rap...

Some women’s bums are standard size,
while others’ are humungous,
and some are daintier than pies
of mushroom-flavored fungus.
Some are shaped like pigskin balls
while others are much rounder,
some are high as prison walls,
and flatter than a flounder.
They sometimes don’t match either tit,
and may be callipygian
although the bosom’s not a hit,
and breast is linked to pigeon.
Some, like men’s moustaches, droop,
while other are far firmer
than Chinese tourists in a group
from whom you’ll hear no murmur
because they are polite. I’m not.
When I catch any glimpse
of bums of someone who is hot,
without a man who crimps
my style by seeming to possess her,
I raise my hand like Moses
against Amalek, be they lesser
or greater than their noses,
for natural these assets are,
and therefore must be treasured
by hands as well as eyes afar
that help them to be measured.

Greece is lost. Total defeat, even worse than I expected.

I hope the Germans understand they’re not immune to the pyramid scheme.

How much worse does it get before the populace wakes up?

As Zizek has said, Democracy isn't the solution. its the problem. Even when the people "choose" the proper path, the "leaders" surrender. After all, thats what they get paid to do. Serve the establishment's monied interests.

I think you're giving me the bum's rush, FT.

Syriza stood alone, Thersites. Its only 'allies' were the weaker economies.

Right now it looks like resistance to the Neoliberal Behemoth is futile. Someone tell me that ain't true, please? I haven't felt so pessimistic in a long time.

Greek parliament just voted in austerity ('structural reforms' cough), minutes ago.

Let the jumble sale begin. Got a few $m to spare? There's some really nice islands going under the hammer soon!

the merry go round is eternal

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy” - Alexandrr Fraser Tytler
