“They [11 September 2001 hijackers] were targeting those people I refer to as ‘little Eichmanns’ who were making the world economic system hum to the service of the United States. The upper floors of those buildings were occupied by [Cantor Fitzgerald], the bond-trading firm. It took out one-third of its overall personel. These people had 20-30 years invested at being the most competent people in the world.

[“How about if they set off a pipe bomb south of 14th street {as an alternative to hijacking planes and flying them into the World Trade Center towers}?”]

How about we make all those starving babies symbolic? Then we can respond symbolically. OK?

That’s American exceptionalism: You impose real terms and real suffering on people and you want symbolic responses exclusively. The action was correct given the circumstances created here; both by the elites who inflict the pain and the by the purported opposition who really do nothing tangibly to end it.  Except in the process of its ritual form [of failing to end terrorism] separate itself in it’s own mind from those who comprise the elites and feel better about themselves. Well, that’s taking people who are beneficiaries of the holocaustal process and making them even more comfortable within their own terms—terms they devise for themselves.  I’m not sure if they’re entitled to that comfort.

But that’s kind of what I meant about, ‘Hey, let’s feel good and have a party—after we win’. And we’re not going to win by symbolic exercise.”

Nellie Mckay // Waiter

the scuds drop down like butterflies
they’re loved and round and very wise
they’re just like you and me as they tend
their incandescent need for a friend

where are they now?
where are they headed?
do they see the little ones?
and do they flee?
or do they run?

and do they feel proud, as they are embedded?
do they ask or do they tell?
to mask the fact they’re going to hell

Oh, how your bubble’s gonna burst 
When you meet another nurse 
She’ll be driving in a hearse 

You’re gonna need a heap of glue 
When they all catch up with you 
And they cut you up in two

Asshole // Rilo Kiley


You woke up an asshole
I couldn’t believe my eyes
When you get serious about security, and some aspects of it are security, you think that’s going to work against people who are embittered and hate you for the very good reason you’re butchering their children at your presumed impunity? Ask the Israelis. They’ve got the most highly perfected, developed security state on the planet, and you get 14-year-old kids walking in there with bundles of dynamite blowing them right out of cafés. You want to put your well being and that of your children on a system and a structure and a set of priorities like that? Go ahead; but count me and mine out. Ward Churchill
