Ezra Pound - In the Old Age of the Soul

I do not choose to dream; there cometh on me
Some strange old lust for deeds.
As to the nerveless hand of some old warrior
The sword-hilt or the war-worn wonted helmet
Brings momentary life and long-fled cunning,
So to my soul grown old - 
Grown old with many a jousting, many a foray, 
Grown old with namy a hither-coming and hence-going - 
Till now they send him dreams and no more deed;
So doth he flame again with might for action,
Forgetful of the council of elders,
Forgetful that who rules doth no more battle,
Forgetful that such might no more cleaves to him
So doth he flame again toward valiant doing.

HEROES

HEROES EXTENTIONALISM
Living heroes do not die, they just fade away. well, if not deseased, now and then one might stick around. And this is Americaís national news mediaís hang-up. This gang of anchored down pinheaded clowns, claiming to harbor a hang-up on a professional agitator, that has literally parasited off of uncle sam, from the day of birth. Oh, sure, we have a heroe among us, and well groomed for years under the Tax-payerís coat-tails. But, is this Presidential material? If hugging up on Netanyahu carries weight, it would be possible, but this pro Zionist agent ( a thorn of Zionism ), is of alien intrusion from Asia. Palistinieans deplore imported Zionism into its territory. Well, Netanyahu has his ( heroe )
fully charged in maintaining a Congressional seat. Naturally, this political prostitute would love to climb higher, however, the need is to skirt non-heroes is clear. This is one lead balloon that will not fly. America does not need another world war. Maybe this heroe should find a decent life of privacy.

NOMENCLATURE

DOUBLE DECKED BASTARDS
Politicians are very clever in concealing mental degeneration and dysfunctional disorders. In born
disturbances as hereditary thieves and lairs is an opium from the womb to the tomb. Debating this
. observation would be foolish, because it is in full clarity, whenever national conventions are held.
Whenever a barrel of these sons of bitches binds with lies, it is impossible to undo Satanic intoxication rolled into the national politically devised Electoral Voting System. a specific log-rolling senatorial scoundrel now running for president mind; however, education opens up individual perception and conception, in every direction of newly discovered pathways, to merge in the future.
Bringing up Dr. Freudís Oedipus syndrome, we must conclude that a specific and particular tribal psychoneurosis is being repressed, within the very depths of this manís [ his [ known inhibitions, of which forces having a tribal related international hysteria.
This psychoanalyst in the early twenties toured America outwardly proclaiming that all citizens in this state demands that theft through the electoral system be retained.. This bastard, and most in his parasitic notion of living in office, are professional mule-Skinner and bonafide liars.But then again, being suspicious of politicians, is a class perception. This is the lowest rung of natureís struggle. The interlocking of political infiltration and devil worship is loosened sexual deviation of neurotic impulsiveness. We must now regress to dis- intern Homo Sapiens as neanderthalís by-products. When plants produce carbohydrates oxygen is released. As a class, when oxygen is inducted through political prostitutes, a putrefaction of flaturation rebounds in gassing unsuspecting constituents. We must reach into the love affair, the fraudulent aspirations between pseudo democracy and a fraudulent republican
Is it possible that dedicated politicians are mentally unstable. We know that Dr. Sigmund Freud, just as Dr. Albert Einstein, Max Nordave, and Theodore Herzel, proponents of so-called f Zionism, have been co-collaborators, as contemporary partisans, while residing in Vienna, during the early eighteen-hundreds. Several of Freudís co-workers went their ways, because they realized that the Oedipus Complex was death to psychoanalysis. But the love feast under democracy and republicans is open rape in observation
The political Oedipus conception, phallus, or party worship, covers thousands of years from the past. And began ro resurface into political prostitute, .the nature as one being absolutely spell-bound by some sort of emotional fixation being tied to individual erotic desires. In essence, this bright man Freud , was actually using specific by-words to cover his own religion. Political bastardization is compounded religious/politics. The Electoral system is a pig in the Polk measure, to assure that gangsters will become presidents..We know that Dr. Sigmund Freud, just as Dr. Albert Einstein and Theodore Herzle, so-called founder of Zionism, have been co-collaborators, as contemporary partisans, while residing in Vienna during the early eighteen-hundreds. Several of Freudís co-workers went their ways, because they realized that Oedipus complex had rested upon sex. The late Dr. Ben Friedman declared phallus worship covers thousands of years from the past. And began to research into Freudís ancestry to discover phallus worship covers thousands of years from the past. And began to research into Freudís ancestry to discover phallus worship covers thousands of years from the past. And began to research into Freudís ancestry to discover phallus worship extends thousands in the past.










We know that Dr. Sigmund Freud, just as Dr. Albert Einstein and Theodore Herzle so-called founder of Zionism, has been co-collaborators as contemporary partisans, while residing in Vienna during the early eighteen-hundreds. Several of Freudís co-workers went their ways, because they realized that Oedipus complex
rested upon sexual intuitions.




Actually, the psychiatric world has dropped the word schizophrenic from its nomenclature, on mental instability. Decades past, a radio personality, Major Bows, came on line with the words: Ē Round and round she goes, and where she stops nobody knows.Ē Generally, this applies to our national citizens for sure, when anxiety steps forward before Congress, unannounced, in exploring the public utility of conquering mother nature. Masterful criminality washes away socially engineered bamboozle.
Yes, indeed, when an erotically inspired suppressed
individual takes a public stand in trying to shield repressed and socially unacceptable,
uncontrolled inhibitions, of personal proclivity to wander the psychoanalytic path Ē The Personality Suppression complex Syndrome.Ē This is a natural inclination for any bastard in seeking bread via political prostitution
A two-party gang- bang , political front, democrat/republican, this is a pure herd instinct, in seeking some pleasure principle, is under the spell of a Personality Suppression Complex syndrome. As a tie-in with
religious indoctrination the Oedipus stultification heads for the nearest cliff for swine diving.

t
Political contraceptives need no Viagra. This gang in office is in inhibited with repressing untruths, self-induced masochism, or the magnetic public venture of spouting the greatness of contraceptive safety,in attempting to shield suppressed erotic desires of bought into anxiety. The political rape of America is at its apex.

BACTERIA

GRUNION STEW FOR ROAMING MOBS
The study of mother nature respectively as to unpolluted water and its vital necessity in protecting the lower animal world against manís various activities, ó- lead to passing off deadly mentally cultivated bacteria via spheres contrary to healthy living must be considered. The loath some disease of political whoredomsí party augmented devised mental syphilis of organic poisoning brought on by excessive alcohol with the consumption of unregulated bacteria loaded processed foods; and most of all, struggling through life with a hoboís mentality of degradation in official prostitutional whore mongering is a direct duality between bacteria and water poisoning because bribes in all industries contributing directly in ruining the nationís pure water supply are passed onto organized thieves turning their heads in protecting public health and the lower animal order.
First hand experience with an industry in the ship-build field is the guiding light in making accusations against OSHA as one governmental orientated department supposedly having an interest in the area of any industry with ship building or repairs. Observation was that for years oil and manure was flushed into a local river in poisoning ocean life and killing wild animals and birds while heads were turned the other way. One could observe human feces and oil drifting along year after year. The most harbored and obnoxious thought against local political syphilis was to watch fish netted and put on the local market. Much bottom feeders such as mullet found their way into local tourist traps. Openly we can note the political connection between bacteria and scoundrels being bribed in high office. The saddest thing is to note as to how OSHA wore blinds! and millions that were passed to localized political whoredom through bag men or ladies.The-Red-light districts had more to offer tourism than bacteria loaded mullet; customers could enjoy river food from the local sludge flow.
Nationwide such assertions can be made. There is no confidence within many states with whom are allied with public serving rogues in feathering their own nests while helpless citizens can go straight to hell! The only answer to this whole riddle of bacteria and political whores is to go out and vote the inefficient fools back into office. By nature, humanoids are more disposed to suffer evils ( pollution ) while evils ( politicians ) are sufferable. If the national sewer of political syphilis is allowed to expand through herd-like dispositions of a mob-like cancerous expansion then America will gradually become a national disaster of wide spread bacterial implosion. Political whoredom and enhanced biological ( microcosmisms)
will be the eventual death and decline of a republican / democratic system will continue to roll over into a national metropolitan sewer in the hands of sickened political whores fastening onto the innocent hides of tax-payersí Eradicate them ! back to the rural outhouses where many leaned that mother nature cannot be aborted on either end; the master political prostitute ends up as a fish out of water which he helped to pollute!
