From the Merely Calamitous to the Ungraspably Nauseating

I will take a brief break from my deeply unnerving personal woes to note the Killer-in-Chief's statement about the verdict in the Zimmerman-Martin case. We thus move from the attempted personal destruction of someone most of humanity has never heard of (namely, me), to stomach-churning nausea and horror on a national scale. It's a great fucking world, innit?

Honest to Christ, contemplation of a statement from the Killer-in-Chief -- a serial murderer with a goddamned Kill List -- that extols "a nation of laws," asks " if we’re doing all we can to widen the circle of compassion and understanding in our own communities," and goes on to say, "We should ask ourselves if we’re doing all we can to stem the tide of gun violence," goes far beyond nausea and horror. If a significant number of Americans were remotely healthy, they would treat Obama as they would any monster who raises his bloody arms from the open chest of his latest victim, lifts up his hands -- which hold his victim's heart, liver and other organs -- twists himself with enormous effort into his most obviously and fundamentally false serious mien and with phonily solemn voice, as blood soaks the scene, implores us all to love one another and embrace tenderness and gentle care for each other as the greatest of virtues. Healthy people would regard such a scene with the monster as insane and horrifying. People should have the identical reaction to such statements from the fucking Killer-in-Chief. But most people assuredly do not, and I am beginning to think that is because this nation as a whole has suffered an irreparable psychotic break. I may exaggerate, but not by much. On some days, and this is one of them, I'm not even certain I'm exaggerating any longer.

I went over much of this ground in more detail in January of this year. Here's a brief excerpt:
To say the government of the United States is one of the greatest sources of violence and of violent death in the world today is not to exaggerate in even the slightest degree: it is the unvarnished, goldplated, fucking, goddamned truth.

Therefore and thusly, to believe that one of the greatest sources of violence in the world today should be trusted to solve the problem of gun violence in America is to believe in self-contradictory statements which immolate themselves on a gigantic pyre of the most ridiculous, asinine, ludicrous notions ever imagined in the malformed, grotesque, nonfunctioning brains of the dumbest animal that has ever existed. Anyone who believes that gun control -- gun control devised and implemented by a brutal, endlessly violent, systematically murderous State -- will even begin to solve the problem of violent death in and by America is a fucking idiot. Moreover, to believe that the man who has lovingly embraced the principle of mass murder, and who proudly and repeatedly declares to the world that he is a serial murderer dedicated to continuing his murders into the indefinite future, targeting an ever-increasing number of victims, is sincerely devoted to ending even a single aspect of the problem of violence is so colossally, stupendously stupid that it defies accurate description.
There's more.

And, for the moment, that is all I have to say about this hideous business. No, wait. There is one more point. If Obama possesses even the most microscopic fragment of sincerity when he proclaims his desire to "prevent future tragedies like this," he could take one immediate action. He would resign this instant, and insist that the authorities lock him up in a maximum security prison for the rest of his life. Furthermore, he should demand that every single person in the goddamned national government follow his example without delay.

I dream big. You should, too.
