I’m just listening to this as I’m browsing my regular websites, a friend posted it on Facebook. Louis CK is a pretty funny dude. A very good friend of mine, Jeff Edwards, likes to joke about the so-called lizard people.
Listen to it, don’t, I don’t give a fuck. Just telling you what I’m doing.
Well, as I’ve said before, I’m switching to left-hand mousing, and that’s working out OK, did it all day at work today and it didn’t really slow me down at all. However, my right arm is feeling even more irritated than ever. Geez Louise, what’s a homeboy to do?
Is it typing? I’m writing a lot lately, but not more than usual. I just don’t get it.
Anyway, what with getting the basically “employee of the month” award, I got a gift card and my first purchase with said gift card … Johnny Walker Black and a pack of Winston Lights, hello! Still, even though it’s more expensive and, er, premiumer, I like the red better.
I reckon I’ll have to go to the doctor about my arm. And, I’m pretty sure I know what they’re going to say:
“Yes, you have blah diddee blah, and there’s nothing that can be done about it. We can give you something. If you want.”
And then I’ll say to myself, as I’ve tentatively said already, “I guess it’s just another thing to get used to.” Which is to say, what the fuck ever.
Anyway, back to lizards. The idea behind the lizard people is that there is a cabal, c’mon, you’ve heard this before, that controls this that and the other thing. And listening to Mr. Rumsfeld and his story about his age and how long he’s been in government, you might think, “that motherfucker is some kind of lizard!”
He’s been in the government since god damned Eisenhower, and when I say that, I don’t mean to damn Eisenhower, he’s the most sensible Republican we’ve had since Lincoln, as far as I can tell, but Rummy’s 78 years old and he sounds vital as ever. Now, I understand the so-called complications of government and foreign relations that he speaks about, to a degree, and American involvement and participation in such, however, here he is, hawking a book (great to use hawking when talking about Rummy, right?) at 78 and he’s still on. I gotta tell you, like the title of his book, something to do with known knowns and all that shit, when he had that speech about “known knowns” I thought it was political genius. Whether I agree about what he said he knew or didn’t know or what and what for.
Anyway, because of such things, accomplishments and such, years in service, etc. the man’s labelled a lizard, like everyone else in power, beholden to mysterious behind the scene powers. Which I think is malarky. Dude was into getting into government at a young age, most that are recognize the inherent opportunism that you have to embrace to have a career in such and go on doing their own thing, ideologically only to a degree, but also go on in such fashion as was started from the person who held office before them. Particularly in presidential politics that is a prominent feature.
If you look at it, that’s what happens, presidents start something that is inherently carried on with the next president. I don’t know exactly what that’s all about but it has helped color and define our foreign and domestic policy time and time again.
Shit, I know what its about. But it ain’t no cabal, lizard, ethnic or otherwise.
You know, Jim Morrison was the lizard king, right?
