Ever find yourself wondering what Hunter S. Thompson, were he still alive, might say about Obama in his own eloquent way? Perhaps this: (HINT, not very flattering)

Time to release our Activists From Jail, The "Left" that supported the administration has now gotten angry.

Good read, Roxy . . . and yes, even us liberal Leftists are becoming increasingly more and more disgusted with this fascism/corporatizing/elitism.

A cleaner, wilder, more harmonious world, Rox - This is what i've sought for so long, and what I shared with the old Wolf and the bears sitting on the hillsides eating, unconscious of the glory of their being.

The tangled cruelty and corruption accepted by men is now so profound that it cannot stand.

Do live in beauty - from this place is the only good response to this mess.

Most of us here voted Green if we voted.

The Doors of Its Mouth, The Lamps of Its Eyes:

“Can you pull in Leviathan with a fishhook
or tie down its tongue with a rope?
2 Can you put a cord through its nose
or pierce its jaw with a hook?
3 Will it keep begging you for mercy?
Will it speak soft words to you?
4 Will it make an agreement with you
for you to take it as your slave for life?
5 Can you make a pet of it like a bird
or put it on a leash for the young women in your house?
6 Will traders barter for it?
Will they divide it up among the merchants?
7 Can you fill its hide with harpoons
or its head with fishing spears?
8 If you lay a hand on it,
you will remember the struggle and never do it again!
9 Any hope of subduing it is false;
the mere sight of it is overpowering.
10 No one is fierce enough to rouse it.
Who then is able to stand against me?
11 Who has a claim against me that I must pay?
Everything under heaven belongs to me.
12 “I will not fail to speak of Leviathan’s limbs,
its strength and its graceful form.
13 Who can strip off its outer coat?
Who can penetrate its double coat of armor[b]?
14 Who dares open the doors of its mouth,
ringed about with fearsome teeth?
15 Its back has rows of shields
tightly sealed together;
16 each is so close to the next
that no air can pass between.
17 They are joined fast to one another;
they cling together and cannot be parted.
18 Its snorting throws out flashes of light;
its eyes are like the rays of dawn.
19 Flames stream from its mouth;
sparks of fire shoot out.
20 Smoke pours from its nostrils
as from a boiling pot over burning reeds.
21 Its breath sets coals ablaze,
and flames dart from its mouth.
22 Strength resides in its neck;
dismay goes before it.
23 The folds of its flesh are tightly joined;
they are firm and immovable.
24 Its chest is hard as rock,
hard as a lower millstone.
25 When it rises up, the mighty are terrified;
they retreat before its thrashing.
26 The sword that reaches it has no effect,
nor does the spear or the dart or the javelin.
27 Iron it treats like straw
and bronze like rotten wood.
28 Arrows do not make it flee;
slingstones are like chaff to it.
29 A club seems to it but a piece of straw;
it laughs at the rattling of the lance.
30 Its undersides are jagged potsherds,
leaving a trail in the mud like a threshing sledge.
31 It makes the depths churn like a boiling caldron
and stirs up the sea like a pot of ointment.
32 It leaves a glistening wake behind it;
one would think the deep had white hair.
33 Nothing on earth is its equal—
a creature without fear.
34 It looks down on all that are haughty;
it is king over all that are proud.”

The fire god spoke to the oppressed man, we are told, Of beings that will not submit, but finally will send a message to men of the hollowness of their pride..

The cruel may do these things written to one and another, but persistence is spirit. There is a spirit that lives within a wolf, and a like one that lives in every individual.
Kill, imprison; Those who do so are feeding this spirit, and its kin, whether Ojibwa or another, my love. That is Leviathan.
