orthrian politics
the two party system exposed

call me orthrus:

i'm a dog with two heads
one left and one right

seperate and
but both attached
  to a single  body
    and reflecting the  conflicting moods
                             of  a single  soul

among other nice features
of  working thru  two heads

i obviously

have at all times
   two mugs to work with

two expressions to make
two mouths to speak

one mug can be  clean

while the other's dirty

one indignant while the other's  defiant

u get my gimmick

mix in the k street project


           my soul can dirempt over this

and run against itself
and drive itself from power

and and and .... 

i orthrus you know 
   was geryon's two headed dog



  in antiquity a  three headed three torsoed 
     six armed titan cowherd bully boy
             assassinated  by  the arch rectifier
                                      of those days

by    dante's time
       geryon   has morphed  into  the emblem of fraud
a huge half-man
half-snake winged critter

he gives dante and virgil
a lift down into malebolge
leaving the sins of violence
      behind for the really dire scenes
that flatterers, simoniacs,
  hypocrites etc can expect 

  fraudsters in other words

they get the rivers of shit and boiling
   pitch etc

between then and  today geryon morphed again
into the emblem
all  limited liability corporations

What i don't understood is in truth how you're no longer really much more smartly-favored than you may be now. You are very intelligent. You know therefore considerably in relation to this topic, made me personally believe it from numerous numerous angles. Its like women and men are not involved unless it's something to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your individual stuffs excellent. All the time take care of it up!


LimitedLiabilityCorporations” .....and too, those recently re: inforced/vigorated ‘MomPopChilluns’nNeighbors!’ Sub[terranean] S Corporations ...... ‘they’ are always one step ahead of the game, until we all finally refuse to play anymore.
