Saturday and Sunday – Listen to them whine. Watch them posture. Anger. Resentment. Righteous indignity. Blame. It’s all part of the script! C’mon! Whom among us still can not see through this Machiavellian charade? Whom among us remains so impenetrably ignorant so as to believe that the false opposition now being performed by America’s elected officeholders is anything less than that: a performance. In this performance, the stage is shared equally by two bellowing prima donnas. Stage Left: the Democrats, and written into the script as being intellectual, kind, generous and social-minded, but beneath the surface, loathers of liberty, peace and prosperity. This character, the Democrats, is motivated by the desire for power and authority, manifested through the implementation of a ‘kinder, gentler form of human slavery’. Stage Right: the Republicans, and written into the script as being religious, the nation’s moral compass, austere and upholders of the law, but beneath the surface, backsliding sinners, embezzlers and gluttons of wealth and every indulgence. This character, the Republicans, is motivated by the desire for power and authority, manifested through the implementation of a ‘militaristic, religious, global empire’. And make no mistake about it, neither character feels any shame over their consistently miserable and unbelievable performances, because they regard their audience – that is us – We the People – as fools. Government shut-down? Just another act in their play. And a good play, or at the least, a memorable play, will keep the audience on an emotional roller-coaster from curtain to curtain. Here’s a metaphor: while America is watching these clowns perform, every automobile in the theater’s parking lot is being broken into and looted. Whether it is team Red or Blue (or the Right Buttock, or the Left Buttock, of the dirty DC bum) every time one of these hack performers is on mic and mentions something about ‘principals’ or ‘the public interest’, the corporate news should edit in a laugh track. Despite anything said to the contrary, what is actually happening now during these budget negotiations is that the majority of the members of the two predominant political parties, each supposedly representing the interests of slightly less than fifty-percent of the US population, are busily representing their own self-interests. But remember, while these two bellowing prima donnas are following the same script, they do not share the stage well, and each will by vying for position and greater acclaim. Thus, the stabs they take at one another are likely to be real. (That’s the part of the performance that I enjoy.)
During this all, and astrologically speaking, I have a much greater concern than whatever graft may be grabbed by either the Left or the Right, or having to listen to the noise being made by those whose only means of sustenance requires their lips to be firmly fitted around the public tit. (And, damn! Can they suck?) My great concern is that, those who operate while hiding in the shadows (a.k.a., those men and women who feign loyalty to America, but who work from below the line of visibility to actually undermine (or sabotage) the USA) will use this ‘government shutdown’ as an opportunity to strike at the core of America’s financial system, the ‘government shutdown’ either providing cover while they act, or, at a later date, perhaps when some sort of a financial catastrophe has already occurred, an implausible excuse for the financial catastrophe – an implausible excuse that the corporate media will repeat to the American public until, in the minds of the public, it has become a plausible excuse. Astrologically speaking, I believe that, if the looters and the saboteurs have not already acted against America’s financial system, they are within days of doing so. (Though it may be 3-4 weeks before the effect of the strike becomes apparent.) Indeed, the coming weeks should be very telling.
Through the weekend, as the transiting Sun conjoins, and then separates from, America’s natal Saturn, austerity will be enforced, and America’s political divisions will widen. (Truly a blessing for party-line politics!) Meanwhile, an arrogant, boastful, war-mongering man from somewhere within the US government, prepares to pick a fight with one of America’s foreign neighbors.
The only way to beat them at their game is to first recognize that their game is wholly corrupt, and then to refuse to play their game.
