Proposal before the Committee: A game of Cards

I would like to propose a game. A card game. We will call it . . .

The Galted Repelican.

We begin with a deck of cards, presumably 52 but not necessarily 52, since the suit of Hearts will be absent - repelicans are after all, utterly heartless. Embossed upon the deck will be the faces of prominent repelicans.

Aye sayz the sharp ol' timer in the last row who sees exactly where we are going with this . . . card deck extravaganza . . .

4 spades

I would suggest the Koch brothers as the Queen of Clubs, depicted as a two headed queen or using two suits of clubs to make up for the absent suit of hearts.

And that Grover Norquist whose name is absent from the ranks at the Vile Plutocrat - perhaps the Jack of Spades for that vile knave . . .

The essence of the game is of course the production of accidents with reward according to card rank, ambiguity and success of design. I mean, after all,

why not?

When a railroad can experience two accidents in less than 48 hours at the same time it is engaged in negotiating an expanded corridor in the heart of Washington DC

  1. Lynchburg

  2. Bowie . . .

  3. Earlier pair of incidents

Why Not I say! Besides . . . !

Everybody's Doing It!

All that is required for this game is the ability to engage in rumor and wild speculation - principle skills among the far right crowd. That and even a single accident will inevitably produce such a frenzy of fevered speculation that the whole world will know and come to appreciate this uniquely American pass time.

The Galted Repelican

Any number can play.

Coincidence of this nature - where two train accidents occur on the cusp of negotiations over expanding its corridor hauling highly flammable bakken shale crude through the nation's capital

(Edit)

Hhmmmmmmmmmm - could it also have anything to do with wanting to expand tar-sands pipelines????????????????

Duhn duhn duhnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

Kind of makes sense as that is what is going on. No nasty train oil accidents for years - and then - whamo - a series of train oil "accidents" - huh what to do - what to do - cry for safe pipelines? - the fuckers!!!

Yep - kick all fossil fuel to the curb once and for all - but tar sands immediately if not sooner. No matter how much it is denied - There Are Viable Alternatives to fossil fuel - Available Now.

Remember the saving of the auto industry? The old car buyout? To get new cars sold? Personally I think it could have been done better. What if ( I know I Know "naysayers" - too expensive - well what cost to go on as we are? ) we were to go on a full scale program of refitting older cars as well as upgrading the new cars coming off the assembly lines. Stop throwing away ( disposable society ) and start a refit industry to instal new tech into old cars/trucks/buses etc etc. People are looking for good employment - lets really put standardization to work = standardized drive train configurations for plug and play versatility. Want all wheel drive with 50 plus miles per gallon or an electric motor? See your local credit union and get a federally financed low interest low payment purpose tied loan to upgrade your vehicle to the latest and greatest tech - so what if you will never be able to afford that brand new vehicle - millions never will be able to afford them - we could still upgrade for the same cost of buying a used vehicle - Hey?

Those obstinate assholes need to be beaten - severely.

So doable - the mating of engines to transmissions is a very basic piece of engineering as is mating the engines and transmissions to motor mounts and drive shafts. The controls the controls some have cried. To simple I say - it is all computer ( chip ) control - easy peasy - pop in the new control chip and good to go.

IDK - I mean look at all of the crap going on - from wallstreet to fracking to oil wars to poison crops and on and on and on. Some populations have woken-up ( kinda ) to protesting corrupt government - some even mentioning the wealthy living dead corp(se)oRATions and indivduals that are buying it. But where is everyone else?

This I think is the Heart of the attacks on an open internet. To put down a new form ( media ) for public organizing and open protest.
