The global situation waits for no one to keep it spinning. The Iraq biz of war goes on while America sleeps. Troops from all sides would like to go back to their loved ones. The Israeli-Palestinian conflicts are leaving behind the Reagan-Arafat era and a new era is pushing their own agenda. And building walls of isolation higher and higher. Africa will have a difficult summer of suffering while America prepares for their winter holidays and TV escapism programs.The hoidays might be a good time to give Haiti a chance to live for a brighter day.
Hey! Don't get me wrong. I for one miss my NFL and NBA sports living abroad. And I will have my traditional Thanksgiving dinner with an international group of friends sitting at a table. And have a toast to a long life and being thankful for what we have (I'll play the Indian handing out corn and pumpkin pie and wild rice).
In America as it was less than 50 years ago in England, the stigma against gays is highlighting a homophobia of equally creative and greater repression. No dogs, no Indians or gays allowed reads the small print in the American Constitution. Oh now, com'on, that's not what it says.
Anyway back to the biz of politics. Now, I know this won't go down so well with Michael Moore fans. But, the biz of politics was great for him. He's laughing all the way to the bank!! Mickey has to bank on another animated cutesy cartoon for Xmas. And six anti-9/11 Fahrenheit films supporting W (There are more out there disguised as Hollywood films!). Politics is good for biz. This is not even counting all the paid speaking engagements at universities made by all persuasions of political divides. Who remembers OJ at Oxford in 1996? Politics is good for biz.
Shit! Pay me $10,000-$15.000 per university visit and I'll tell you to vote for for me. A real Native American running his own country. I'd promote buffaloe pizza and huckleberry ice cream franchises as the new world order. Kick the McDos into making tufu tacos. Wait a minute. I'm starting to get some good ideas here. I have to go make a few phone calls to see if I can privatize ideas. Who said politics wasn't good for biz?
