Gollum and Smeagol on the debt deal

Responding to the Mordor-inspired debt ceiling deal, I thought it was time for a Lord of the Rings post


G: We told you he would hurt us and lie to us! All nasty cuts and no nice revenue. Wicked, tricksy, false!
S: Master is our friend! He has tricked the hobbitses, the cuts are mostly in defense. No more bright sharp swords for the dark Pentagon.
G: No, he tricked us. He was always going to save the money when the armies came back from his wars
S: But the hobbitses want to keep fighting all the wars, and start new ones. Now they’ll have to make peace
G: No, they’ll find a way make his war. The last war that will cover all the world in shadow. They’ll call it foreign aid, or education. He doesn’t care if we starve
S: No. Not master!
G: They do not see what lies ahead, when Sun has faded and Moon is dead.

    Obama isn’t weak, simply unprincipled. He has his eye on his own ring (no, not that one), re-election. When the goal is simply and little more than election and re-election, what is the point? But, for the professional politician there isn’t any other point. Election, re-election, in the world of professional politics is there anything else? And is there any price to high to pay for that goal? No. Not for a professional. If it were sport they would all be on steroids.

  2. Freelander, I always thought Obama was a Trojan Horse after the republicans threw the ’08 Presidential election. You know, McCain feigning dementia, nominating Palin etc. Then when Obama gave the nod to ultra-Zionist Rahm Emanuel as his enforcer, it all became crystal clear. Not long thereafter I read a rather triumphalist piece from the Chicago Jewish News of October 24, 2008, entitled ‘Obama and the Jews’ where Obama’s history as a product spotted at college, employed, promoted and financed by mega-rich Chicago Zionists was outlined, and which included the observation by some worthy that Obama was, in fact, the ‘first Jewish President’ of the USA. The rest is, as they say, history.
    Obama was intended, I believe, not just to sell out the ‘Hopey Dopey’ suckers and deliver the goods, every time, to his rich patrons (the story that Obama was financed by myriad small contributions is a Big Lie), but also to so disillusion the suckers that they would not vote again, possibly ever. That worked beautifully in November 2010, and, given the degree of long overdue rage on the Democratic side over his serial betrayals, looked set to be crowned by Obama going down to defeat in 2012 and delivering the White House and Congress back to the Mad Hatters.
    However I now wonder whether the plutocrat rulers of the USA might not have come to see Obama as just too good to replace. After all, as long as he is there, burnishing his CV for employment at Goldman Sachs upon retirement by delivering the country to the richest 1%, why bother with a Republican? After all the poverty of the Republican field so far when Obama is DOA is somewhat suspicious. If the delightful Governor Perry of Texas, about to address a conference of Christian ‘Dominionists’ throws his hat into the ring, I’d say Obama is for the high jump. Perry looks like George Bush the Lesser on steroids, an enthusiast for legalised killing and other variants of the US national sport of lynching. Any way you look at it, the decaying ‘Real Evil Empire’ is just about as dangerous a threat to humanity as any it has ever faced.

    Yes. No one seems to have recognised the even more disturbing that Obama is the US’s first ‘Hawaiian’ President! I suppose that news will be released at the right time next year to derail his re-election.

    I think the above paranoid, anti-semitic conspiracy theory is an objectionable rant in violation of John Quiggin’s anti-racist comment policies. This site is not the place to host successors to “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.” Try Stormfront.

    Yes, it’s surprising how few of even our foremost conspiracy theorists recognise the magnitude of the Polynesian threat. I mean, they have a virtual stranglehold on the global coir and pineapple trade!!!1!!1! An alliance between the Judaio-Kenyan Muslimo-atheist communo-fascist Obama and the sinister cabal of Polynesian pineapple banking cartels is the true threat to our freedom. Guns, my brothers. GUNS!!!1!!!1!

  6. I’m calling a halt to this line of discussion (anti-semitism etc) – it inevitably leads to derailment and never to enlightenment: JQ

  7. I think it quite inappropriate to allow Sam, with his ‘Stormfront’ smear. to be granted the last word, but it’s your blog.
