The Stockwell Day Effect Is Boring Me

STOCKWELL DAY EFFECT MAKING ME YAWN
I am getting very bored with the Stockwell Day effect. It's not working in Canada and it certainly isn't making much of an effect in Montreal. It's boring. It's trite. It's lame. It's tedious. I have had enough of it's 4 day old feces scent. At first, I could step step over it. Now it is piling up and getting in my way. So the next step for me is to put on my steel toed combat boots and kick the shit out of it.

Yo Blair!

Yo Blair!
You whore of Babylon
You sold out the working class
You puppet of the Nebulans
You showed the world your ass

Yo Blair!
The inventor of New Labour
Give us back Maggie Thatcher
It’s only Rupert Murdoch you favour
We could not have done worse with John Major

Yo Blair!
You cum stain of Bill Clinton
You cheap version of Brian Mulroney
Iraq’s WMD was your invention
The sexed up dossier not worth a Loonie

Yo Blair!
Why do we call you Bliar?
Have you become addicted to Bush’s dick?
Like a junkie cheater and liar
That needs to get his next fix

Yo Blair!
So you want to be a millionaire.
With your petit bourgeois wife Cherie
Planning to buy the mansion in Bel-Air
Drinking Perrier and Sherry

Yo Blair!
I know who you really are
You are The Devil Incarnate
Fucking Trent in the back of the car
The scam is exposed you are too late

FLYING TOWARDS WAR


THE SUNSET OF THE JET SET
What was clear about the terror events of September 11, 2001 was the reactionary nature of the attacks. Besides the attacks being the catalyst for another world war, it is clear that they were meant to undermine the existence of air travel.

The Vienna-New York Connection: From Christian Socialism To The New Right


-->
CHRISTIAN SOCIALISM, AUSTRO-FASCISM AND THE RISE OF NATIONAL SOCIALISM
In the last entry on this series, I discussed the rise of Karl Lueger in Vienna comparing it to the rise of Rudy Giuliani in New York one century later. In this entry, I will discard the comparisons and show the contrasts between the two cities. The main theme in this entry is centered around the petit-bourgeoisie and the rise of that class as the motor of fascism and anti-democracy. A theme of the Vienna-New York Connection series is to highlight the origins of contemporary right wing politics.

Rapid Kinetic Electric Blue Sparks

SUBWAY RIDE NEEDED
I need to take a long ride on the New York subway. Take the A train out to The Rockaways or the number 5 Bronx Thru Express. The number 7 Flushing Express out to Flushing Meadows Park would be nice as well.
I wouldn't mind going to Philadelphia taking a ride on the Market Street-Frankford El from Frankford to 69th Street or take my first ever ride on the PATCO which is a subway system linking Philadelphia with Camden, New Jersey. I could take a special trip to Chicago for the sole purpose of riding the Howard El. I would take a special holiday to ride the Berlin S-Bahn as well as the Vienna U-Bahn and streetcars.
Though I like the Green Line on the Montréal Métro, it's no substitute for the subway systems of NYC, Philly and Chicago or Berlin and Vienna.

The God Of Earth

BACKGROUND
I started The God of Earth as spoken word comedy sketch in late 1999. It started as a mock conversation that I had with God. It was a very sarcastic but funny dialogue that I would tell my friends. I had just returned from London to New York after my crash and burn. I found myself homeless. To make light of a heavy situation, I came up with an initial comedy sketch.
As my situation increasingly deteriorated I found myself couch surfing in the far-flung reaches of the city. At one point I was staying at the home of an Orthodox Jew out in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn. He had an eclectic and interesting library. One book caught my eye. It was "God and The Secular City" written by a radical theologian named Harvey Cox. It was published in 1964.
