  • Yesterday in the 4th Reich

    I awoke to a loud rumbling engine blocks away in my apartment complex, and an indistinct announcement being broadcast from a bullhorn.

    Naturally I imagined there was some kind of calamity, a gas-leak maybe, or a SWAT deployment, and I went around the corner to hear the message.

    Fire truck slow-rolling, saying, "Hoagie sale. $5. Come on out to the corner of blah blah blah."

    fuckin fascist jerkoff playtime motherfuckers. I shouted BOOOOO as they finally passed with great enthusiasm, and allegations of insensitivity and rudeness (it was also kinda early on a saturday).
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    Hoagie sale? Huh. I still miss the fire truck coming around my old NJ neighborhoods at Christmas time, horns blaring, just to get the kids outside so they could throw candy to them and wish all a Merry Christmas. That doesn't happen here in Ohio outside of parade time (4th of July, and the local strawberry festival). Is your neighborhood FD that hard up for funds??

      It has to do with the cultural evolution of the municipal fire departments and their transmutation into an honor guard auxillary para-military force, whose primary function is the aggrandizement of the State and uniformed personnel, as well as moral and logistical support for the police and their Bagdhad Occuptation-style PR initiatives.

      The last few christmases, they do the Santa thing, but the truck proceeds at the pace of volunteer Hitler Youth style children who march alongside the truck. 2 Christmas parades ago, (the year "we killed bin Laden")* there was a dead arab effigy hanging from one of the trucks in the parade.

      *dismissive masturbatory gesture

      It was not about funds- it's because the fat loser repressed and captive teenagers who are drawn to municipal volunteer'ing are flag-waving, illiterate fascist war-mongers who have never experienced life as an individual with individual concerns, and are imprisoned in a cognitive matrix of bullshit patriotism and loyalty that masks their shit family lives and decaying, obsolete social structures.

          Even though this kind of incident (misappropriation of emergency vehicles and personnel for the purpose of joy-ride "advertising") has never happened in this town while I have lived here, and even though the experience itself was chilling until the message was made clear, everyone on the street is of course acting like I am the crazy one for objecting.

            haha what? This is observations behind enemy lines at the forefront of the cultural emergence of the Last Reich.

              Mr Perf, I will frankly admit that I almost always find your style of prose highly confusing (personal thing, I know, but still), but that bin Laden effigy offa' fire truck would have had me seeing red, too.

              And I think you are actually right - that fire truck should not be doing that kind of thing, ie the volunteer firefighters. (Although, our volunteer farm-boy firefighters around here do a helluva job with fewer resources and in some tough territory - rural area with little city water to tap from...)

              And it is hard when everybody around you seems to be from another ideological planet.

                    I once woke to the sound of someone speaking into a bullhorn and had a similar reaction; I thought it was some kind of an emergency. This was in Barcelona and I was awoken from a siesta, it took me a few minutes for my groggy brain to switch to Spanish and go to the window to see what was going on; it turned out someone had a bullhorn and was selling toilet paper!

                      The fire chief in my town was just named to another municipal post, making his total paid government positions = 4. He gets paid for 4 jobs from local taxes.

                        That seems a little excessive.

                          Ah, the glorious People's Socialist Republic of NJ! Where taxes are astronomical, crime is rampant in the cities, law-abiding citizens are left disarmed and vulnerable, the roads and traffic suck, and the politicians are all corrupt! It can't get any better!

                          If it weren't for my job, I wouldn't live here. I'd be in a state that respects individual rights and liberties.

                            I've never been to NJ, so I'm not sure if you're being dramatic or trying to tell me what NJ is like. (No, really)

                            Though, I do know Camden is there...Camden is bad.

                              If it weren't for New Jersey's deeply-ingrained political culture, this would be a nice place to live. The town I live in is nice and quiet. Unfortunately, decades of socialist Democrat control (and the occasional Republicans-in-name-only) have made it harder to live in this state. We pay absolutely insane property taxes. State income taxes aren't much better. We keep sinking more and more money into the public schools, and they haven't improved. The cities of Newark, Paterson, Jersey City, Camden, etc. all have serious crime problems. Law-abiding citizens who wish to own a gun have to jump through flaming hoops to get a firearms ID card. None of the gun control laws here have stopped criminals in the aforementioned cities. The roads here are among the worst in the country, despite nearly round-the-clock roadwork being done which helps contribute to our traffic problem. The political elite have nothing but contempt for the citizens of this state, and treat us like a bottomless piggy bank. It's no wonder more and more people have been leaving the state.
