You should offer that as merchandise.
That wasn’t a banana peel, that was the sound of that whole thing zooming right over my head…
Well, what did they expect? After all, they have made us a banana republic.
The most common end for those in power in a Banana Republic is a wall.
Well that should save us some rope.
The sooner the better.
The best punishment for some of these would be to locked in a cell with others of their own ilk.
For others it would be complete isolation from media, si that they have no audience.
With nothing to steal or scam for, their antics would be hilarious!
Hardly. Their mutual backbiting and accusing each other of being the reason for their downfall would quickly descend into violence.
As Dinesh d’Souza wrote, the major difference between a professional criminal and a professional politician is that the latter generally inherited enough money to afford an Ivy League diploma.
Professional criminals regard politicians as being just like them, except insofar as they had better luck. Criminals, like politicians, do not believe in the virtues of hard work, etc.- that’s strictly for the peasants they prey upon.
Professional journalists are in roughly the same category.
The major difference between the three is that in stir, criminals establish a hierarchy that more-or-less keeps the peace. Politicians are incapable of doing so; their egos get in the way.
As for journalists, they are like deep-ecology and other sorts of “social justice warrior”- type activists.
As Heinlein observed in The Number of the Beast (1980), their commissariat would quickly degenerate to the Kilkenny Cats level.
I’ve often thought that the methods that establish an heirarchy “in stir” should be applied to all politicians in getting and keeping a seat…
Kind of like Elon and Suckerberg plan to do; a fight to the death…or at least to the loss of their platform, or in the politicians’ case, loss of their comfy gig.
Plus, talk about fun! Can you imagine the pairings and how they are chosen? FIght to the finish, blood and guts, all on live PPV!
Fatal flaw to that little plan, and to eon’s timeline as they turn on each other, I don’t think a damn one of them have the guttural instinct and raw power to actually use physical force without having their minions do it all for them.
“… their commissariat would quickly degenerate to the Kilkenny Cats level.”
You say that as though it was a bad thing.
The thing about corruption at that level is that once you have undeniable proof against one, or they think you do, then they’ll turn on the others in an eyeblink for a deal like the resident’s kid was supposed to get and you’ll learn things you never even suspected.
Their motto is “All for one !! as long as it’s me”
The Xi Bai Den Imperium in action. Some times they actually shout out load rather than just plan “Off With Their Heads!”
I would label it a dictatorship with a Cesar, but it is far more of a Kleptocracy. I think Idiocracy is more accurate.
banana republic: noun
A small country that is economically dependent on a single export commodity, such as bananas, and is typically governed by a dictator or the armed forces.
Speaking of pay per view- – – – -how about a cage match between “Doctor” Jill and Camel Toe- – – – -the loser has to fellate Pedo Joe! That would be a sneaky way to pay off the national debt!
