Writing it off as 'Lost in Space robot' is pretty fucken shy of the mark I'm aiming for.
Why is there so much daylight between what these public officials profess to believe, and how they act?
Like Obama, Copps can make such a compelling argument in favour of a worthy stance that it's hard to believe he wouldn't want to walk the talk; if you can argue convincingly in favour of self-evident principles, how can you possibly be disingenuous?
So how is this possible? You might have to put on your tinfoil to get to the bottom of it... what are the odds that at some point in Obama's ascendancy, he had to lock away his balls after an unfriendly reminder of JFK's fate, or something like that?
I'm not sure how many would still scoff at such a notion, but to those who would, have you been paying attention? The world is clearly ruled by an opaque oligarchy with no accountability whatsoever, and politicians are ever more plainly puppets, along with most of what remains of the fourth estate... and as each decade goes by these scumbags get more blatant as our disenfranchisement grows.
It was almost certainly ever thus to some extent, but particularly these days, politics is virtually devoid of the management of civic affairs, and is instead just a place where big fish hang out to gobble up up little fish. During the cold war, folks believed their own propaganda and seemed to have a bit more respect for the foundations of liberal democracy, but now it's a fucking free-for-all; a race to see who can grab the biggest slice of the pie before it all falls over in a heap. This is plain for anyone to observe; if anybody disagrees, I'm sure others will back me up.
But anyway, I digress. We should be rioting in the steets until these scumbags are explaining their backflips under oath and leading us to the vile banksters et al.
The elite is lawless, and we're all living in a police state - fuck that noise.
