On Foolish Kings, Lavish Queens, Brave Emperors, Sad Prime Ministers and Presidents

This is the night before Election Day here in Grizzly country. I have so many thoughts racing through my head … are we finally going to get rid of rotten-Harper (our useless, spineless Prime Minister). I would probably wipe the floor with him if we were face to face – that is really how I feel.

He’s scum, a maggot and there is no simpler way to explain it. When people are lacking jobs, kids lack public school buildings (see my Attawapiskat blogs) and many people live on the street (see my “Poor People” blog), our Prime Minister was prepared to pay over thirty billion dollars on fighter jets from some U.S. company. He wanted to build super-prisons like they have down south (United States). Sure, that is exactly what we need to do now: copy the war-like attitude of the U.S. government … like that will help the public here in any way. Don’t invest in our children, not like they are the future or anything.

The royal wedding that just took place in Great Britain last week also made me think of our leaders. They are such wastes of skin and flesh. Tough words? Sure … it’s a tough world we live in but I do not think we need useless leaders.

The Wall St. Journal mentioned that the royal wedding might have cost around fifty billion (http://blogs.wsj.com/numbersguy/how-much-did-royal-wedding-cost-britain-1055/). Others have put the price at ten billion (http://www.presstv.ir/detail/176986.html). One million would have been too much in my opinion. Either way, this happened when most people in the world live for fewer than two dollars per day. I cannot help to think how many schools, hospitals or such could have been built with that money.

Enjoy your lavish future, Mrs. Kate (I think that’s your name …)

I keep thinking of my late Dacian King, Decebal. He fought tirelessly to uphold the freedom of his people in the face of the Great Roman Empire and when our capital at Sarmisegetuza (in the Carpathian Mountains) was overwhelmed by Emperor Traian, he sliced his own throat so he would not be made prisoner/slave. That’s honor! Something our leaders have never heard of. His Spirit lives through Me.

I will never forget what Bill Maher said after 9/11:

“We have been the … [ones] lobbying cruise missiles from 2000 miles away. That’s cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building, say what you want about it, it’s not cowardly” (Eisman, 65)

I have much respect for Ghengis Khan, for Napoleon for Vlad Tepes (Vlad the Impaler). These were leaders that marched ahead of their armies. Leaders who put their life in danger; they fought with their people, they were true warriors in all senses of the word.

Vlad Tepes (1431–1476), like many other Dacian/Romanian princes and kings, used to disguise himself and walk around his kingdom in order to talk to regular people on the street. Meanwhile Prince Charles was attacked by a mob while driving around the streets of London in his multi-million dollar Phantom. I would have asked Mother Earth to open-up and swallow me if I were in his shoes. How bloody shameful …

I do often think of Princes Diana. She used to disguise herself and sneak-out of the palace a few times a week. She would go out on the streets of London and bring food; clothing … whatever she could for those homeless and unfortunate souls. That is how a Queen should act. Not like most pompous, egocentric Queens of our days. Most of them are only good for the wooden-spiked pole. Vlad Tepes knows what I am speaking of.

Obama stood in the White House not even an hour ago talking about how America killed Osama bin Laden. The fool shouldn’t even talk about it. He should just go back to the front of the mirror and practice his waving which most leaders are great at doing from their motorcades. He sits comfortably; pointing fingers, giving orders, answering a phone call or two … that is a leader? Blahh …. That is a secretary in my world.

And I am done; feeling nauseous. I am ashamed for our human species that I even had to write this.

Thank you for your words Mr. BBnix. I am more than disgusted with the fact that I go and vote tomorrow (actually today since it's three am now) knowing very well that my vote doesn't count much because the Liberal candidate in this riding has a tremendously strong foothold. We don't have proportional representation here in Canada so, my vote will be a protest vote going for the Green Party, I think. I'm not even sure to tell you the truth. It's a sad state of affairs.

You said it brother! Many were disgusted completely with this wedding. I was hoping a demonstration would upset it, but no luck; they had half of Britains; police force on the streets. This ass-sucking establishment, headed by the drone-in-chief, will not give up one iota of its power and influence. We need the young out with the cobble-stones and machetes, but they have no guts here...Bob

Yes, I felt President Obama was all about tooting his own horn on the killing of Osama Bin Laden. Already gearing up for the elections in 2012 here. I wrote a poem, Mr. Happy, about the "Event of the Century" called "What would Bukowski Do". Nausea seems to be going around these days. Honest, sad commentary on the state of the world today...

Hi Mr Happy Now tell me how you really feel (just kidding) I love the way you tell things the way they really are and speak your peace without withholding. You have honor and care for those that need it most which is a quality far to many lack, especially politicians and leaders. Thanks for a great hub and I couldn't agree more! 10 billion WOW How many mouths would that feed?

"The world's fate rests with the Congressional snakes" - Vinnie Paz - I can't just stand and watch.

Thank you for your comment Mr. Diogenes - the temperature is rising so, once in a while I have to let-off some steam.

Mrs. Amy - I will check-out your poem soon. Thank you for your time.

Mrs. Lynda ... You know how I feel. Thank you for stopping by.

Mr. Charlu, let me tell you how I really feel then: you see ... lol Thanks for the laugh.

Mr. John, I do think that if we did not have the Conservatives in power, Mark would not have been extradited. It's all garbage ... and ya, let's see what we pull out of the hat after tonight. Cheers!
