Edgar Poe and the 'infantine imbecility' of American society
04.12.2012
By Nicolas Bonnal

Some writers and bright minds that happen to criticize a little the great character of American civilization are brutally sentenced to silence and thus ignored by media conspiracies. Others, like Tocqueville, discover that America is a champion in the art of ignoring the critical mind: No writer, whatever be his eminence, can escape from this tribute of adulation.

Of course, many American geniuses, before this term was spoiled par mass culture and modern media, already had a very bad perception of their country. But it was far ago... The first great American writer, who was also a great reporter, is, of course, Edgar Allan Poe, always marginalized by Yankee school subculture (and you will soon understand why), who was deified by French writers like Mallarmé and his well-known translator Baudelaire, one of the inventors of modern poetry.
...
As later would write the great Lovecraft, Poe denounces the risks of this modernity intertwined with pollution and ugliness, both being the results of scientific knowledge. In a somewhat pompous and ironic style, Edgar Poe writes so:

Yet this evil sprang necessarily from the leading evil, Knowledge. Man could not both know and succumb. Meantime huge smoking cities arose, innumerable. Green leaves shrank before the hot breath of furnaces. The fair face of Nature was deformed as with the ravages of some loathsome disease.

The physical destruction of the world through the forces of capitalism and technical progress, the industrialization too of education, leads to the worst of horrors: the loss of taste.

But now it appears that we had worked out our own destruction in the perversion of our taste, or rather in the blind neglect of its culture in the schools.

This was for Monos and Una. But let's talk with the mummy!
...
Of course, like many great reactionary minds of his romantic and passionate time, Edgar Poe is fully opposed to any improvement, believing in more royal or medieval times. In this aspect he looks like Pushkin or Gogol, not to mention Hugo and less famous French authors. I humbly confess that sometimes the progress gets on my nerves, thanks to the greenhouse effects, airport's boutiques, fake elections and universal dumbness. Of course a gentleman must adapt his soul and manners to such miserable time (the American one). In conclusion, I think that nobody ever had better words about the progress than the count:

The Count merely said that Great Movements were awfully common things in his day, and as for Progress, it was at one time quite a nuisance, but it never progressed.

That's the point, dear reader: progress never progresses. Progress can't!

Nobody in charge at office that inspected Benghazi security

The State Department has gone without an inspector general for four years, raising concerns that the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Libya could have been averted or, at least, more thoroughly investigated if President Barack Obama had filled the post during his first term.

The last head of the Office of the Inspector General of the Department of State was Howard Krongard, who retired in January 2008.

Since Krongard’s departure, the critical role of overseeing an office charged with investigating instances of fraud, waste and mismanagement in the State Department has gone unfilled.
...
According to the OIG’s website, a key duty of the inspector general is to ensure the safety of State Department facilities:“OIG performs specialized security inspections and audits in support of the Department’s mission to provide effective protection to our personnel, facilities, and sensitive information.”

“The sheriff is out of town,” John Malcolm, senior legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Now "gzeena"... Jack hasn't SPOKE yet! Not ONE word yet!
I will though via several questions UNRELATED..."what is going on with Benghazi?"
What is really going on with this OVER spending of money we do not have, while making policy to SPEND more? How does that get this country on track to success as for debt control? How will all the entitlements be paid for when the dollar is worth nothing-as it is on that track at a fast pace?
Benghazi appears to be a small thorn in Obama's side. He'll sweep it under the rug and eventually most people will forget about it and those who demand answers will be hopelessly convinced that justice is a thing of the past. Obama is not man enough to man up and tell the families of the deceased and the public that his administration failed miserably. The father of one of the SEALS said Obama wouldn't look him in the eye or offer him sincere condolences and that Obama's handshake was like that of a dead fish but hey, on the brighter side, he got four more years!

I'm sorry but no one needs a trillion plus dollars a year. Did you ever see "High Plains Drifter"? Clint Eastwood's nameless character wrecked a town, turned it's people against each other and had the town's people paint their own town red, "Especially the church" literally. In the end, the town named Lago was appropriately renamed HELL. Obama is doing the same thing to this country but this is no movie.

This country will be going farther off the track while our economy goes over "the cliff" because Obama has everything to gain. He "needs" a trillion a year. If he doesn't get it, it will be the Republicans fault. The tax on the rich will prove to be a tax on everyone except the broke. Raising everyone's taxes will do nothing to lower "the debt" but the Obama administration will have more disposable cash. The answer to your second question, it won't.

It's been said well, "Socialism is great until you run out of someone else's money".

Al-Qaeda helps USA solve its problems
06.12.2012
Washington has recently stated the intention to finish "the war on terrorism". The activities of Al-Qaeda should be controlled by special services and the police. These are significant statements and good intentions, aren't they? But why were they made now? Did the Americans stop being afraid of the "ghost of terrorism" that frequents their country?
Increasingly more experts recently shared the opinion that the American struggle against "Al-Qaeda" was of a selective nature and in some cases turned into a collaboration for the sake of achieving common goals. According to a Turkish Admiral Türker Ertyurka, Syria is filled with terrorists of all stripes, but "Al-Qaeda" that committed a number of large acts of terrorism in this country is supported by the USA. This was also stated by a columnist of The Daily Telegraph Peter Oborne. He reported that recently the UK and U.S. have been secretly cooperating with "Al-Qaeda" and led a joint struggle against the Syrian authorities.
A year earlier in the course of the campaign to overthrow Gaddafi in Libya, the United Kingdom and the U.S. supported the Libyan Islamic combat group that is a branch of "Al-Qaeda." As discovered later from the reports of American diplomats published by WikiLeaks, militants of LIFG took part in combat actions in Iraq and Afghanistan.
It should be noted that the cooperation between "Al-Qaeda" and the U.S. has a long history. After introduction of the USSR troops to Afghanistan, the USA, hiding behind the struggle for the independence of Afghanistan, began using Saudi Arabia Islamists as a shock force against the USSR. "Al-Qaeda" became a militant force with the U.S. assistance. American transnational corporations and Islamists have one common enemy - independent countries, and they are fighting with them together.

Benghazi was a Republican smear campaign on Obama that failed. Better luck next time.

So let me get this straight, there's nothing wrong with someone using the handle "Iraq Vet" or " Army infantry" etc, and posting political opinions but a picture of a person in their uniform is off limits?
You got it. I oould claim to be a nuclear physicist and baffle you with bull$hit, but I cannot post my photo in uniform on here. PS- you don't need to "be sure" of this for it to be true. It's true, regardless.
