To the Moon, Alice, To the Moon!


The Dissident Frogman doesn’t come online much anymore, but when he does – Pow, right in the kisser!  (Did I date myself with post’s title?  Will it make a difference to y that I only saw the Honeymooners in reruns?)  If you want to get a little prescient commentary on where the election is taking us, look no further than France.  If you are not too afraid, read the whole post.  Here’s a few salient paragraphs to whet your appetite.

“Hear ye, hear ye, Great American Tribe: thou hast lost thy ways and hast forged thyself chains of iron. Hear the Revelations of the prophet Frogman, he who wandered through the barren wasteland of Europa under a wooden yoke and witnessed the terrible plight and dreadful blight that will now descend upon thee:

TO THE GLOATERS crowing over the comments sections of every conservative and Republican websites: burn through every gallons of that sweet euphoria as quickly and fully as you can, for it will very soon become stale and leave only the putrid taste of rot in your mouth. I know you, for I’ve seen your peers and walk among them in the Land of the Frenchmen. Tomorrow, the effects of your plebiscite will pierce through the exhilaration of your victory, and they will crush you as much as they afflict those you mock today.

Just as they did in France, the policies you champion will affect everyone’s standards of living, directly and indirectly. If you are wealthy today, your wealth will dwindle tomorrow. If you are already poor or believe yourself so, you will never rise and prosper.”
