My Plastic Penis

by : Daveparts
Tuesday January 5, 2010 - 02:30

By David Glenn Cox

I spent the New Year’s weekend apartment sitting. Ahh, hot showers and central heat. All the comforts of home, except for a computer. Well, it is only forty-eight hours; I can take it. The two dogs in the apartment, a Chihuahua and a Chihuahua mix, viewed me with great suspicion. They are one-person dogs and I wasn’t him, so they stayed in the bedroom and I in the living room.

My one source of entertainment was a television with plenty of college football. I like college football but dislike football color men, explaining to me what I just watched as if I didn’t just watch it. One bowl game was raising money for wounded servicemen, which is a noble cause. Not as noble, of course, as the stopping of the wars which are wounding them in the first place. No mention was made of that; this was about football and how much corporate America loves this country, and how rich people really are wonderful.

Citi, Capital One, AT&T, God bless us every one. Each bowl game was filled with its sponsor’s advertisements and only channel surfing could save me from brain fatigue. As I surfed the other channels I found that there were game shows offering to give expensive prizes to poor people, or non-rich people. Or I could watch Maury, where teenage daughters were breaking their single mothers’ hearts by having sex and doing drugs. Poor people really are screwed up. So I switched to Jerry Springer, and well, poor people really are screwed up, aren’t they?

I had read about MTV’s “Jersey Shore” stereotyping Italian Americans. I found it doesn’t say much about men in general, other than they are narcissistic with self-inflated egos. These guys are people who somehow don’t work but have incomes and live the good life at the beach in a nice home. Their sole goal in life is to find as many stupid women as they can to have sex with, because, of course, they were the catch of the day. Women just can’t get enough of shallow, self-absorbed, totally non-intellectual men, men who don’t own a book or a condom. "Jersey Shore" does for the image of New Jersey what Dudley Do-Right did for the image of Canadians.

It was ironic that Turner Classic Movies was playing "Farenheight 451." Oh so appropriate for a man trapped in an apartment without Internet access, because as I watched the film for probably the twentieth time I realized that we are there. “Isn’t that right, Linda?” Big screen, flat panel, high definition televisions on which to watch subliminal social narratives with such a small amount of quality as to put the expenditure of electricity in question. Dog beds, exercise equipment, neck enhancers, and of course your own personal, plastic penis.

My brain started to reel watching commercial after commercial extolling the features of your personal, plastic penis. Why, you can go online and watch TV. Look up restaurants, play video games, or if you tire of all the other features you can call your friends to see what they are doing with their plastic penis. “Isn’t that right, Linda?”

“Where you going, little Buddy?”

“I’m going to the potty.”

“Do you need help?” Dad asks.

“No,” the toddler answers and proceeds to close the door and pull out his own personal, pocket-sized TV. I realize that TV commercials aren’t meant to make sense but to make the sale, but you’ve just got to ask yourself what sort of mind envisions a toddler who feels the need to isolate himself to watch TV. “Don’t you agree, Linda?”

When the movie was over I switched to C-Span, a feature provided free of charge by America’s cable and satellite industry, God bless corporate America. The guest was a pompous douche from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace taking questions about Yemen. It was important, he explained, that we help Yemen to be a successful country and already the US has doubled its aid package from $70 million. He was skating on new blades until he took a question from someone who had actually lived in Yemen. The caller explained that Yemen has 13,000 villages and water has to be trucked in and the water is running out. The caller explained that the average Yemeni citizen lives on $750 a year.

Well, the douche’s pompous façade was broken on the hard rocks of reality. The caller had worked in Yemen for two years after the civil war. Gosh, this guy had been on for twenty minutes and forgot to mention the civil war. Kind of like an expert on Iraq that forgets to mention the US invasion. A bitter civil war had been fought between a Muslim Marxist state in the north and a puppet Saudi state in the south, but he forgot to mention that, Linda. He began to back pedal from making Yemen a success to preventing Yemen from failing. He also forgot to mention that the Saudis built a wall along their border to keep the Yemenis out.

Most damning was the admission that Yemen is not an economically viable state. With near zero water resources, declining oil revenue, and only natural gas to plug the gap, they can’t generate enough revenue to keep the country afloat much longer. It is a country situated in a stinking desert, the most God-awful stinking desert you have ever seen. It makes Afghanistan look like a garden spot. I’m not going to fix it and you’re not going to fix it. It is country whose future depends entirely on foreign aid.

The President says we must go after Al-Qaeda with drone missile attacks even if they are only two miles from an Yemeni military base. You understand that, don’t you, Linda?

YEMEN TIMES SANA’A, Dec. 30 — A Member of the Yemeni parliament Shawqi Al-Qadhi warned the U.S. on Tuesday against sending its troops to Yemen to fight Al-Qaeda, describing such action as “a disaster by all means.” The warning comes while some senators argue that “Yemen will be tomorrow’s war” for the US.

“If the US insists on sending its troops to Yemen, the whole Yemeni people will turn to the Al-Qaeda,” said Al-Qadhi, who represents the opposition party, the JMP.

But that means more foreign aid, doesn’t it, Linda? It’s no wonder Shawqi Al-Qadhi is in the opposition party. He doesn’t know a good thing when he sees it.

Yemen has two radical groups operating inside its borders. The Houthis, a Zaidi Shia sect supported by Iran, claim the government is corrupt but also want to carve the country up into a Shia enclave. This group represents a threat to Saudi Arabia and the Saudis have used their own military to attack them.

“Iran supports the Houthis primarily because the Houthis belong to the Shiite sect and it has remained an unstated policy of Tehran to help, support and unite the Shias all over the region. Furthermore, supporting the Houthis in the backyard of Saudi Arabia would give Tehran a geo-strategic advantage vis a vis that country with whom it has a longstanding regional rivalry. This has heightened Saudi fear about the possibility of an increased Iranian influence over the Houthis.

“Saudi Arabia is concerned about the intrusion of Houthis into its territory and that increased activities by the Houthis may spill over to its territory and inflame its Shia population which has, in the past, triggered several violent uprisings. That apart, Saudi Arabia is worried that Al Qaeda terrorists from Yemen and elsewhere may seize the opportunity to enter the Kingdom using the porous Saudi-Yemeni border for their operations.

“To Saudi Arabia’s disbelief, Houthi rebels attacked Saudi border security guards and infiltrated the Kingdom’s territory. For their part, Saudis launched heavy military operations including aerial bombardment to push the Houthis back to their territory. Heavy confrontation was reported from areas like al-Khuba and Jabal al-Dukhan in the Jaizan region bordering Yemen which has led to several deaths on both sides. Saudi Arabia also imposed a naval blockade on the Red Sea coast of northern Yemen to check the flow of weapons to the Houthis.” (Institute for Defense Studies &Analysis)

The government is fighting a Southern movement as well, so Al-Qaeda comes in a distant third on their threat list. They knew where the Al-Qaeda camp was. It wasn’t a secret, but they chose instead a predator drone attack because that gets headlines, Linda, and more money to fight the two dozen or so rag tag, so-called Al-Qaeda. This is about a regional influence battle between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Or is this about a guy with firecrackers in his shorts? “What do you think, Linda?”

Coming up next on C-Span, a forum hosted by “The Economist” magazine, followed by three hours with noted author Michelle Malkin.

"God created war so that Americans would learn geography." (Mark Twain)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
