Pisces’ Tarot Card: The Moon (XVII)
The Moro massacre (1906): Mark Twain, satirist and vice president of the Anti-Imperialist League, called it:
incomparably the greatest victory that was ever achieved by the Christian soldiers of the United States.
That was sarcastic: In a day and a half the Americans under Wood’s command wiped out more than 600 people, mostly women and children stuck at the bottom of the crater of Bud Dajo. Wood had everyone killed, even babies. The Moro men faced American artillery and guns with little more than knives, clubs and some outdated guns. Only 15 Americans died.
Wood received this cablegram from the president:
Washington, March 10.
Wood, Manila: — I congratulate you and the officers and men of your command upon the brilliant feat of arms wherein you and they so well upheld the honor of the American flag.
(Signed) Theodore Roosevelt
this girl is fucking ridiculous
You get home from a long day at work and turn on the TV. It’s been a long week, so you think to yourself- maybe i’ll take the family to a movie on Saturday. Maybe we’ll even go on a vacation soon! We could visit museums and go to plays and see all sorts of fun attractions.
When you turned the TV on, nothing happened. There are no actors to entertain you.
When you went to the movie theater, nothing was showing. There were no advertisements to tell you that anything was showing, so you went to the theater to find out. Nothing playing. There is no one to film and create movies for you. Well at least your vacation will be fun, right? Not like there will be any plays to see and there won’t be anything in the art museums.
Well at least you have the shack you are living in that you made out of cardboard and sheets.
Not like you could find an architect to build you a house with all the money you’re making as an engineer.
THE FUCK DID YOU JUST SAY TO ME
THERE WOULD BE NO ROAD SIGNS OR INFORMATIONAL BROCHURES

Living with a dog is like having a furry drunk person following you around all the time.
