Ron is a good guy...though he doesnīt say so. Heīs a good surgeon, which he does say. And Iīm sure he is. Heīs also incredibly smug and self-satisfied, and given his limitations, he can honestly believe he is. He also was willing to take a chance back when...he was one of the amazing three who gave thousands of dollars before even knowing what a sculpture would look like...those were our brief glory days.
I still owe him a sculpture, and heīll get it. He has a few already. It isnīt his fault he believes in lobbying Congress...seems to work for others, why not us? The problem is what we can afford...the little we can hope to get in return for the little we give. Assyrians, especially fat-headed ones, are very easy to flatter. Let them into a Congressmanīs office and they fairly glow. To us $100,000 is BIG BUCKS. To a politician itīs pocket change, theyīll accept it gladly because aside from reaching out to take the envelope...across the desk in their office where we were allowed in to make the delivery...they donīt have to do much else. Just getting in there was enough for us.
Most politicians are whores...they have to be the way system is set up...just as millions of women have to sell themselves because thatīs the way THAT system is. While twenty bucks will get us a blow job...it wont get us love or a country. Some of us just canīt manage to get blown upon too often...so a twenty dollar politician will have to do.
Those of us fortunate enough to be in love donīt pay for it...and donīt need a country either. All the worldīs the backseat of a 49 Chevy to us.
