A Mischief Of Magpies

If the Sun were the size of a beach ball then Jupiter would be the size of a golf ball and a Mischief of Magpies would be as small as a pea.

WWW 3 is a new reality TV show. It's being pushed by that Survivor show guy Mark Burnett and I even think that they will get Jeff Probst to host. The way it breaks down is this. Instead of involving armies of innocent, programmed, sheeple, teenagers and civilians sending high speed projectiles through each other for, whatever the reason of the day is. The leading politicians from the main branch of government would meet in neutral territory on an island in the south pacific. The politicians can bring whatever they want with them to the island as long as CBS can strap a camera to it. Only the few thousand politicians and their families are allowed to go. No armies, no lackeys or yes men, only those who make the decision to go to war.

The previews are a riot.

On game day tensions are high Bush is pissing his pants in a tree stand begging the camera for someone to come and help him, while mortars are detonating around him. Cheney long ago, ran and hid in an oil barrel after witnessing scooter Libby getting scalped by some shrapnel. The Bush twins would surprise everyone at their ability to take care of the wounded and defend themselves with 9mm handguns and grenades. We watch the money worshipping sons of Mammon go stand on the front line and catch bullets in their chest while we watch them at home on CNN.

Lots of the politicians screamed when the rules were announced " we served our country all ready, it's our turn to lead ( see: maim, kill, march these kids into death )" Well, two wrongs don't make right, so grab your M-16 and get back in the foxhole mother fucker, because your enemies are ready to rumble. We are going to change the paradigm. If you want to make the decision to go to war, go fight. Every member of the senate, congress and federal government and their immediate family that gets behind the war gets shipped to the island, after basic training of course, to fight what they believe in.

The winners get to have a prearranged purse for victory; including but not limited to their personal freedom, sovrenoengty, and various resource rights.

The ratings would be out of this world. Considering the vast gifts and prizes at stake for the winners, I assume that people would like to watch the ultra-rich personally battle for ultra-gifts and prizes. Voting for a candidate would now have to take in to consideration whether or not he could kick some ass.

Look for it next year on Fox.
