Maggot Brain

I had a fleeting personal acquaintance with maggots in October, 2005. It happened when Dr. A and I snuck into NOLA from our Red Stick exile. I emptied our fridge and tried but failed miserably to clean it. Back to maggots, when I opened the freezer, flying maggots came zipping out. No longer larvae but living large and post-larval.

I thought of the magggot swarm (band name?) when I saw this piece at Salon:

Peter Morrison, treasurer of the Hardin County Republican Party in
Texas, suggests in his newsletter that the state should have an
“amicable divorce” from the “maggots” who re-elected Obama.

Morrison posted on his Facebook
page his post-election thoughts: “We must contest every single inch of
ground and delay the baby-murdering, tax-raising socialists at every
opportunity. But in due time, the maggots will have eaten every morsel
of flesh off of the rotting corpse of the Republic, and therein lies our
opportunity.”

“Texas
was once its own country, and many Texans already think in nationalist
terms about their state,” Morrison continued. “We need to do everything
possible to encourage a long-term shift in thinking on this issue. Why
should Vermont and Texas live under the same government? Let each go her
own way in peace, sign a free trade agreement among the states and we
can avoid this gut-wrenching spectacle every four years.”

A band of maggots, that’s what we are. I think we should celebrate our maggothood or is that maggotry? Seriously, the maggots are gonna start gnawing on the Texas body politic soon enough if the Gopers don’t start treating Latins like human beings.

As to the secessionist sentiments, rant on, dude. That issue was settled long ago and I don’t think the enlightened minority in the South deserves to be governed solely by cretins like this bozo Morrison. Secession is a flag that wingnuts like to wave to illustrate their purity. I think it merely illustrates their idiocy.

I think malaka Morrison is suffering from maggot brain. They worm their way into your cerebellum and begin living larval. Then, they force you to say stupid things on Facebook and the Tweeter Tube. In short, you should blame George Clinton:

    You should never blame George Clinton.
    Unless you invite him to your house and later find your stash missing. In that case, blame away.

    If you protest the impending war in Nam/Afghanistan/Iraq/Iran…, then you are antiAmerican.
    If your sympathies are with Occupy Wall Street (even if you never attend or support), then you are a commie Marxist pinko.
    But if you stockpile weapons because the other side won the election, then you are a true patriot.
    If you seccede from the Union, then you are a true American. (Bet SC is glad to hear this).
    Even going back to the 60s, the conservatives have done a good job of controlling the labelling of the rhetoric as well as vilifying the other side. Then in the 90’s Newt’s Conservative Lexicon managed to cement the lead.
    OTOH, perhaps it can all be explained that a political system based on a mythos doesn’t have to be consistent. But a system based on thought and logic suffers in that it has to have a logical consistency.

    Funny how it’s always politicians themselves or federal contract recipients who holler the loudest about moochers, maggots, etc.
    Projection, maybe? (Sarcasm intentional)

    I get a laugh-out-loud kick out of these secessionist bozos in Texas. I once counted the number of military installations in Texas, and the number and size of them alone is dramatic, and the figures have shown for decades that they represent a huge flood of federal dollars into the state.
    With secession, all that goes away, poof!
    Besides, doesn’t this idiot realize that Texas still has a little bit of oil, so, if Texas seceded, the U.S. government would just invade and occupy it?
