exceptional??

the period of atonement is over. it's not that i've finished atoning, it's that i never should have started atoning in the first place. i didn't sign up for that supersticion.

to be exceptional or not to be exceptional, that is the question. obama says america is exceptional whilst putin says nyet, america is not exceptional.

of course America is exceptional, any idiot should be able to figure this out. but is America exceptionally benevolent? is america exceptionally peace loving? is america exceptionally free of corruption? of course America is NOT exceptionally benevolent, peace loving or free from corruption. but in america's defense, i can't think of any countries that do possess these attributes.

this raises the question; in what area is america exceptional? i have no clue and furthermore have no interest in defining what makes america exceptional. i do have one observation to make about america:

america is exceptionally polarized. the right blames the left and the left blames the right. the poor blame the rich and rich blame the poor. in my travels through cyber space i stop by several left leaning blogs opining that obama walks on water and his shit don’t stink and of course the right leaning blogs are opining that obama is satan incarnate. these people bicker back and forth and there is absolutely no way that one side is going to change the views of the other side. they just become more entrenched in their views and also become more and more polarized in their views of the state of the union. the states are not united.

if an american was to call me exceptionally ignorant of what is transpiring in america, he or she may be absolutely correct. shit, i’m exceptionally ignorant of many things going on in canada. i don’t give a shit about most things over which canadians incessantly argue. i really couldn’t give a shit if we have a liberal or conservative government. they’ll both tax the shit out me then tell me that i shouldn't do most of the stuff i enjoy.

as far as the public relations skirmish between obama and putin goes, put me in putin’s camp. obama does not have the god given right to bomb a sovereign country.

i heard this song on cbc radio and it made me real verklempt. in the past i had an exceptionally ignorant view of the cbc, canadian broadcasting corporation. i still think don cherry and hockey night in Canada suck farts out of dead horses but i love cbc radio.

mazel tov, i love you sons of bitches.

in what area is america exceptional?

Being fucking full of themselves and minding everyone's fucking business.

billy pilgrim said...

excellent point king, canadians are also full of themselves. in fact we're so busy being full of ourselves that we don't have time to try and mind other people's business.

After doing a little painting on Sally's new shed this afternoon I stopped into the bar for two beers and KD was in there, she owns a book keeping business in Victoria and is a member there of a club of something she calls DRUNKS WITHOUT GUILT.

I really like KD, and she really likes me, but Cindy is coming up fast on the home stretch. It's hard to call it when cocksuckers get in a race.

Leslie said...

Keep dreaming, BBC.

BBC said...

Dreams give a man something to muse about. It beats the fuck out of picking the door Leslie would be behind, no man wants to see that.

Galt-in-Da-Box said...

Isn't it great when the one-worlder, Establishment politicians, who spend most their time - and our money - trying to make US like everyone else, take a break to lecture sovereign citizens on "American exceptionalism"?
FUCK that conceited Kenyan prick!

BBC said...

I'm disappointed in Obama also, and I'm pretty sure we will really hate the next preznut.

BBC said...

A lot of people keep calling Obama a muslim, I don’t know where they get that idea from, I just think he is the worst kind of a christian.

Gorilla Bananas said...

America is politically polarized compared with its own recent history, but not compared with countries like Egypt and Syria. Putin is just protecting his buddy Asad - there's a difference between attacking a sovereign country and hated regime, as Gaddafi found out.

harry said...

Levon Helm - EXCEPTIONAL.

billy pilgrim said...

a hated regime within a sovereign country that was created by western powers that installed a minority regime with the express purpose making it dependent on foreign power for survival. but darn it, those naughty syrians in power decided to seek military aid from those nogoodnik russians rather than the benevolent western countries?

do you think america hasn't been looking for an excuse to lay a little beating on syria?

is it just a coincidence that syria has shown up on the radar screen after the military has drastically scaled back on the afghan adventure which in turn was started after the military scaled back on the iraqi adventure.

and of course israel doesn't factor in this at all.

billy pilgrim said...

oh yes, what is my level of confidence on my analysis?

extremely low.

this is purely for entertainment purposes and all world powers are encouraged to seek independent advice before shifting their foreign policies.

BBC said...

I done went and used up all of Sally’s paint this morning, shortly after that it started raining, I hope it didn’t wash much of it off, fucking rain...

billy pilgrim said...

you take sally, i'll take sue
there ain't no difference between the two.

BBC said...

Damn right you can take Sue, he hated his father for years for giving him that name.

Leslie said...

So looking forward to the old hypocrite's DC Navy Yard commentary.

Leslie said...

And Pilgrim, you keep mentioning your dental work but BBC has yet to call you a shithead for wasting your jars of pennies on useless things like teeth.

BBC said...

You stupid bitch, why should I care if he spends his money on his teeth?

I did for many years myself until I got tired of trying to save the fuckers because they were shit from the beginning.

Why don't you just shut the fuck up and go suck on a cock?

Leslie said...

The Tater and Omar want to know why you are living vicariously through Sonny, like all underachieving loser parents do when their filthy crotch fruit sort-of succeed for a short time before they, too, crash ad burn. And are you at all concerned that with Sonny up there in the Yukon, billing up to 16 hours a day, he might partake of the local Native Canadian whores who frequent these mining camps and come home one day with a mixed Inuit/Viking grandchild? Will your sense of caucasoid superiority be able to cope with the shame of it all?

U mad bro?

Leslie said...

BBC, for the same reason you care if I spend my money on manicures! Go fuck yourself! Everything about you was "shit from the beginning"!

Leslie said...

BLAHAHAHAHAAA! I know a Rob when I see one! That dude RULES!

BBC said...

Manicures for a manatee is a fucking waste of money, a vain waste, but I've never bitched about you putting silicone in your tits.

Leslie said...

C'mon BBC you fucking dolt, let's have it. Dead Syrians are hilarious and a fire at the Jersey Hore gives you a boner, but ya got nothing for the shoot 'em up in DC? Don't want to bite the hand that feeds you? Loser!

Leslie said...

Sorry...

*gives you a boner* was not meant literally. I know those days are over for you.

BBC said...

Correction, you couldn't give me a boner.....

Leslie said...

Neither could your crucifixion!

BBC said...

What is that washed up cocksucker babbling about now?

Hahahahahahahaha

It is a good thing BBC is stupid, he'd really get mad at you Leslie!

billy pilgrim said...

leslie - you are an exceptionally bitter woman looking for a spat. there is a reason i rarely answer your comments. you do not interest me in the least.

Bob Harrison said...

An exceptional raft of commentary.

BBC said...

Are you ever going to do a post on your other blog again?

Discovered what is eating at my tomatoes, little slugs. I'm thinking I should sprinkle salt around.

Charlie said...

America did go the moon, but then they stopped, they lost the dream then... and being exceptional

Farmer Giles said...

Billy, mate, just for the record, I think Barak Obama's the best president America's had since Ronald Reagan. I also think that America's the most secular and dangerous nation on this planet.

So, what the fuck does this/that mean? Not a lot, really, it's just an exchange of opinions, with not much attention being paid to the point of topic of interest, i.e. the content of your blog being discussed.

Now, listen-up motherfuckers, stop pissing around in the school playground with childish, bawdy, infantile banter and talk some serious fuckin' shit, or sadly, I'll have to come down on certain unnamed people and assert the powers invested/inserted in me as a moderator to sadly and unfortunately take the appropriate action that I see/deem to be necessary. :-P

To You & Yours, I Wish You a Happy & Peaceful Night!

Take Care & Stay Lucky!

Peace,

Steve...

PS Long Live The Mighty Boosh!

PPS BBC, you've been clocked, my son, and as such, are under my hawk-like watchful eye & gaze! :-P

BBC said...

I've been clocked? Was I exceeding the speed limit?

Farmer Giles said...

Bill, no you daft cunt, you've been 'breaking the rules', my son. This is your first, unofficial warning, please heed it!

You've been annoying and upsetting the 'Board of Directors!

Take Care & Stay Lucky!

Peace,

Steve...

Farmer Giles said...

OK, Bill, before you even fuckin' come out with it, let's nip this in the fuckin' well bud now, matey. This is your first official warning. I'm sorry, mate, but as much as I hate following rules, just like yourself, in doing the job that I'm doing, rules are rules and I have a duty to enforce them! Shit's shit, and it's just hit your fan.

Official Obscenity & General Annoyance Warning Issued By Farmer Giles, Tues, 17/09/13 to BBC.

Take Care & Stay Lucky.

Peace,

Steve...

Farmer Giles said...

Billy, who's the silly cunt who said that America went to the moon?

Take Care & Stay Lucky!

Peace,

Steve...

Farmer Giles said...

Billy, please refrain from having a go at, or persecuting Leslie. Thank you, mate. No warning, just a personal comment! :-P

Take Care & Stay Lucky!

Peace,

Steve...

BBC said...

What in the hell is Farmer Giles smoking?

billy pilgrim said...

charlie - have we met?

farmer - there's just something about the boosh that can bring a smile to my face. i'm even delaying deadwood to savor the boosh.

yes, i often poke fun at obama but i don't think anyone could do a better job. it's quite the tightrope he walks on a daily basis.

king - i don't like being on the clock.

Farmer Giles said...

Bill, John Player's Gold Leaf smoking tobacco, mate.

Take Care & Stay Very Fuckin' Lucky! Please don't cross swords with this moderator! :-P

Come on, mate, let's hear it, "Big bad Bill Is Sweet William, Now". :-P

Peace,

Steve...

Farmer Giles said...

Billy, The Mighty Boosh, my friend, should help see anyone through the darkest of hours, mate. Keep watching, enjoy, laugh & be happy. Did you ever see the cult, anarchic, early 80's Brit comedy, The Young Ones? The Boosh, in my opinion, takes this kind of humour into a different dimension.

To You & Yours, I Wish You a Happy & Peaceful Night!

Take Care & Stay Lucky!

Peace,

Steve...

billy pilgrim said...

the young ones? not that i remember but it's now on my list.

sweet william? the king is a lot of things but i've never thought of him as being sweet.

i think of him more as bill the impaler.

Farmer Giles said...

Billy, 'Big Bad Bill Is Sweet William, Now' is a cover version of a track written and performed by Milton Ager & Jack Yellon back in 1924. And no, I haven't just looked that up on the 'Net'. :-P The original's excellent and you can hear it on YouTube.

Just for the sake of intellectual interest, Billy, my friend, it was performed by Van Halen on the album, Diver Down, in the early 80's, I think. I was into Van Halen in my late teens [and thought, and believed, that I was going to become a guitar God when I learnt to play part of 'Eruption', by Eddie Van Halen [[who at the time, was deemed to be the 'man of the moment']], and probably quite rightly was] and early 20's, & a few of us met up with the band whilst having a few pints before a gig @ The Manchester Apollo, where, I think they were supporting possibly Judas Priest or some other pretentious rock band. What was funny was that, Dave Lee Roth [Van Halen's vocalist] said to us, "So, you're some of these English street punks, huh?". Anyway, one of my mates, a bloke called Micker [Mike] McCormick, who was hard as fuck, and as pissed-up-as-fuck, almost decked him. Their bouncers and roadies intervened when Micker threw a punch and pissed due to being so pissed. To their credit, they were amazing and blew Judas Priest or whoever the fuck it was they were supporting, off the stage. Happy memories! And Billy, my friend, I bet that you're as 'happy as a clam' that I shared that priceless piece of information with you! :-P


To You & Yours, I Wish You a Happy & Peaceful Night!

I think several lives could have been saved if this didn't happen:
One of the first teams of heavily armed police to respond to Monday's shooting in Washington DC was ordered to stand down by superiors, the BBC can reveal.
