The Emerald City’s Lord Mayor Daddy Warbucks declared all subway rides free for the duration of the Apocalypse. …oops, check that. Free for three days then a fare increase. He really did this. Oh, and wasn’t the Marathon fun?!
Btw this is our first day back in our building. The East River invaded to the second floor. Our gleeful radio station wbai.org is still digging out of the mud. We're putting new lines to the transmitter at the Empire State Building up. Takes time this sort’a
thing. Still it’s good to be back in our
familiar digs again.
All of Wall street, and the general lower Manhattan area is a
wreck. Everything covered in grime, mud, and that mysterious stuff from
the bottom of the river. Comrades we were actually under water for a
time around here.
The surge plus tide put the neighborhood under 20 feet of
toxic semi-sentient water. It took out the lower levels of all the
iconic skyscrapers in the area.
Splattered piles of trash most buildings still dark because
of salt water in the vitals. There’s giant light, and heat generators
parked everywhere. It was near freezing, and below in parts of town
these few daze. This after a sudden warm up to about 70f which let loose
a wildfire of mold, and other fun stuff.
The whole shebang stinks of rot.
Truly this reminds me of the awful smell after 9/11. A
frightful mixture of burnt plastic, and rotten meat. It lasted till
spring as I imagine this will as well.
Speaking of which the consensus of the proles is that this
was worse than 9/11, and will last much longer. I have to agree. Thank
the G-ddess not nearly the body count because of the storm warnings.
Also the memory of Katrina helped many not do anything too stupid.
However it was still a Giant Muth’a Bleeper that kicked the living crap out of this town!
As for myself I’m fine.
Compared with what happened to hundreds of thousands I came off with hardly a scratch. Just lost power for a time. It’d go intermittent then off for
a time. It stabilized after a few days. Also I live on one of the few
hills in the area so no real flooding. The drinking water stayed good in
my area, and just a quarter of the trees down.
That, and rats.
Yeah nobody thought about that one. The damned City was
sinking, and guess what these little bastards do when that happens. Yeah
they made for the dry high ground. So now we all have new pets.
Yes Obama will get the second part of his eight years.
He ain’t the guy I thought he was, but he beats the conga line of nut
jobs that tried for the job this time ‘round.
Hell he might even earn that “Peace Prize” he was prematurely awarded a few years back.
Also as I posted about a year or so ago. The American
Culture Wars are actually over. The Nazi end of it is rapidly aging
away. The Demographic equation of our swell land of da free has tipped.
It’s been tipping for decades like global warming, and like
global warming there’s now no going back. The angry old white guy vote
is now outnumbered by everybody else. Women young folks the educated,
and what we used to call racial minorities.
Here’s a fun fact. In the year of our G-ddess 2012 more non-white babies were born in the U.S.of A. than white ones. So if was any doubt about the viability of the old Southern
Strategy, using fear/hate of the un-white the un-straight the un-male
etc., etc., to get elected that clinched it.
That evil 20th century Nixon designed plan is now as dead as a
bag of rusty nails in a grave yard on a cold night during a grave
diggers strike. The Republican leadership, with the exception of Karl
Rove knows it.
Using code words for Nigger Bitch Spic Fag etc. to get
elected is not operative on the National political scene anymore. Two
Presidential losses by those extremists who used them prove this.
To get the White House back the right wing has to find a
reactionary Black Latino Lesbian Sioux Rhodes Scholar Trans-sexual that
likes to off shore jobs is against education infrastructure new energy
has secret Swiss bank accounts, and wants to start wars w/Iran Russia,
and New Zealand.
Find this person, and they might have a slim chance.
Well a chance if everybody that’s going to vote first drinks a
gallon of LSD tokes up on that legal pot from out west, and is
hypnotized by multilayer political ads. With all that, and bribes of a
million bucks each, in gold,..yeah they ‘might’ have a very slim chance.
More later I'm having an attack of the vapors at the moment.
