The title of this page is a nice Horticultural "Green" introduction to the otherwise current political wilderness the public is being forced to once again endure with yet another 'fixed' Presidential election by way of the non-democratic Electoral College nonsense. One of these candidates, whose slow announcement of being a Presidential candidate affords him the opportunity of collecting campaign funds without having to divulge them, is Jeb Bush... yet another member of the infamous Bush- whacking clan. Fortunately, it is of great relief to find that not everyone is remaining silent. A College student with the name of Ivy Ziedrich confronted this particular nemesis of the public, though there are a slew of them all bidding to don the same authoritative skull cap; because the public will not be getting the leadership it needs to unequivocally promote a Cenocracy with a Cenocratic "Peoples Legislative Branch" formula that others have been arguing for from their own perspectives with the generality called 'actual Democracy'. The expression "Actual Democracy" is a generality if it does not attempt to describe the schematics of a plausible formulalization.
A 19-year-old college student told Jeb Bush that “your brother created ISIS” at an event in Florida. Prior to making the statement, the student identified herself as Ivy Ziedrich, a political science student at the University of Nevada.
During the tense exchange, the New York Times reports that Ziedrich began the exchange by saying “Governor Bush, would you take a student question?” When Bush said he would, Ziedrich identified herself and said she was a democrat. She made references to Bush’s earlier claims that President Obama created ISIS thanks to a hastened pull-out from Iraq by the U.S. military. She told the possible presidential candidate “It was when 30,000 individuals who were part of the Iraqi military were forced out — they had no employment, they had no income, and they were left with access to all of the same arms and weapons…Your brother created ISIS.” He responded “All right. Is that a question?” Ziedrich snapped back “You don’t need to be pedantic to me, sir.” She asked again:
Why are you saying that ISIS was created by us not having a presence in the Middle East when it’s pointless wars where we send young American men to die for the idea of American exceptionalism? Why are you spouting nationalist rhetoric to get us involved in more wars?
But the governor went for jugular:
We respectfully disagree. We have a disagreement. When we left Iraq, security had been arranged, Al Qaeda had been taken out. There was a fragile system that could have been brought up to eliminate the sectarian violence.
And we had an agreement that the president could have signed that would have kept 10,000 troops, less than we have in Korea, could have created the stability that would have allowed for Iraq to progress. The result was the opposite occurred. Immediately, that void was filled.
Look, you can rewrite history all you want. But the simple fact is that we are in a much more unstable place because American pulled back.
The Times piece ends with “Mr. Bush turned away. The conversation was over.”
Ivy was indeed poisonous to Bush... though he was at a clear disadvantage since she obviously has about 10,000 IQ points on him. In this respect, she should be a bit ashamed for disarming him so easily by not even having to draw her dagger or rapier from their respective scabbards. No doubt those in his corner will try to school him with the necessary techniques to look intellectually victorious in staged bouts in the future. He, like his clansmen are not noted for having any intellectual acumen beyond that of an Australopithecine and are thus defenseless when faced with someone who can honestly debate, instead of those who are provided to the public during a simplistic Presidential show-and-tell carnival exchange. Displaying the verbal antics of monkeys with the same level of ignorance and calling it a "debate", is laughably ludicrous. It is easy to hide ignorance behind suits and a bought-and-paid-for authoritative title which, for example, enabled the Florida State Police to provide a plausible reason for having lost numerous voting tallies when Jeb's brother was running for President. Jeb wanted to ensure his brother would come out ahead now matter how much he had to lie and cheat the public. His position as governor enabled him to do just this.
And yet, where were all the Political Science and Sociology Students attending schools in Florida? Surely they don't accept the Bush, and now Rubio justifications for entering into the never-ending Middle eastern embattlements that provide the U.S. military a staging ground for testing new materials, manpower, strategies and the like... for which they would be deeply saddened if such conflicts didn't exist and must therefore ensure some measure of continuance thereof... someplace, with someone, aided by the antics of the CIA.
Sweet Poison Ivy, though she was well-equipped to speak on her own, she should have been supported by other students. Three cheers for the banner waving Ivy!!!
Heaven forbid if we have another Bush, or a Clinton or now a Bush/Cheney-war-supporting Rubio in the White House. The world has suffered enough of such nonsense. American politics, along with the politics in other countries, is in the sewer and its stench is suffocating the entire planet. It's no wonder that wearing a surgical mask is becoming a fashionable political statement about the cultural environment the people are neck deep in.
The rationale being used to justify entering into a war is a pretentious form of would-be logic and has no bearing on the reality of the context that the people are going to be subjected to the same sort of political mentality which has, nonetheless, contributed to so many more social problems at home and abroad. The American Republican Party must surely be hard up if it has no better candidate than Jebby boy. Bush, Clinton and now Rubio, all have the same underlying mental identity... no matter how they may label their perspectives to give the impression of originality in an attempt to conceal status quo mediocrity— such as the late Bush referring to himself as a "War President" as if it were a red badge of courage instead of the despicability for which it actually is. Each of them has a status quo focus because they will perpetuate the same ridiculous formula of pretended democracy. They don't know how to think in terms of identifying with an Actual Democracy. They wouldn't know how to socially maneuver themselves into a favored self-entitlement system that disregards the majority, because they are used to living in the cesspool where it is required to apply the same strategies involving deception, manipulation, obfuscation, threat mongering, conflict instigation, civil rights violations, deleting e-mails, making under-handed deals, favoring campaign contributors, etc., etc., etc...
Plain and simple, We The People need a Cenocracy.
