After Show Links & Show Notes Monday

Metaphor Monday Edition

17 April 2017

Metaphor Monday

"The basis of fairy tale is in reality. The basis of reality is fairy tales." 
-- George Baxt and Milton Subotsky 
"City of the Dead"


It's Metaphor Monday on The After Show. This is the day when we call things what they are. No Similes allowed. Not today.

Nothing says, “The Truth Has No Alternative,” than the New York Times defending the hiring of a climate change denier because “millions agree with him;” multiple state and federal judges halt Arkansas’ ‘unprecedented’ plan of eight executions in eleven days; and, DHS Secretary John Kelly says a single DUI could lead to deportation proceedings.

For The Last Halfwe report that Russia expert and daughter of Nikita Khrushchev, says Putin has something on Trump and will use it on him now that Trump is no good to him; and, the alarming worldwide alliance of parties on the far right hasn’t been seen since the 1930’s.

All that plus, the Connect! Unite! Act! Daily Kos Community Calendar and more, on The After Show with Wink & Justice.

While this America settles in the mould of its vulgarity, heavily thickening to empire, And protest, only a bubble in the molten mass, pops and sighs out, and the mass hardens,

 I sadly smiling remember that the flower fades to make fruit, the fruit rots to make earth. Out of the mother; and through the spring exultances, ripeness and decadence; and home to the mother.

 You making haste haste on decay: not blameworthy; life is good, be it stubbornly long or suddenly A mortal splendor: meteors are not needed less than mountains: shine, perishing republic. 

 But for my children, I would have them keep their distance from the thickening center; corruption Never has been compulsory, when the cities lie at the monster’s feet there are left the mountains. 

 And boys, be in nothing so moderate as in love of man, a clever servant, insufferable master. There is the trap that catches noblest spirits, that caught—they say—God, when he walked on earth. 

 -- Robinson Jeffers 
 "Shine, Perishing Republic"

Rest in Peace Aaron Swartz
