Blago’s makin’ illa noize
It took most of the early/mid part of the 2000’s, but Pluto eventually churned through all that it was supposed to cycle through during it’s stay in Sag. From doping scandals in football, baseball cycling and track, to betting scandals in tennis and soccer, to the death of a beloved race horse, to orthodox and fundamentalist faiths getting turned on their heads by mega-church ministers copping meth and gay sex, to rabid zionistas hijacking eight years of Bush II. Hell, even poker became viewed as a respectable career path during Pluto in Sag.
Pluto did what is was supposed to do to with the representation of the sign it touched in it’s various manifestations, and it did it within the leisure of decade. With Pluto in Capricorn, I believe that the collective time scale is shrinking and things are happening faster and faster as Pluto transforms the very nature of time. That said, one of the big areas that Pluto will illuminate is corruption in government and big business.
Ladies and gents, the next decade will be rocked by scandal after scandal and even the most optimistic among us will be challenged to not become inured by the failure of the system. We’re already seeing the early returns of corruption rearing it’s ugly head in Illinois and I have little doubt that this affair with “Blago” is just a blip on the radar. With the muck bubbling up around Obama’s Stacy Adams’ this early on, not even sworn in, this is not a bright omen for the days ahead. Here is where the transparency so alarmingly absent in Bush II would be a welcome gesture from number 44.
And then there’s Rahmbo.
While being cornered by a Sun-Times reporter, Rahm Emmanuel ducked and weaved questions like a street brawler:
Emanuel was uncharacteristically absent from Obama’s news conference this morning. He was spotted two hours later in the lobby of Chicago’s City Hall. He was there to listen to his two children performing in a concert with their school, Anshe Emet.
A Sun-Times reporter pressed him to comment about whether he was the emissary named in the criminal complaint.
“You’re wasting your time,” Emanuel said. “I’m not going to say a word to you. I’m going to do this with my children. Dont do that. I’m a father. I have two kids. I’m not going to do it.”
Asked, “Can’t you do both?” Emanuel replied, “I’m not as capable as you. I’m going to be a father. I’m allowed to be a father,” and he pushed the reporter’s digital recorder away.
Ultimately, I feel that we’re going to witness the puss filled canker of corruption, crack, and ooze across the socio-political landscape. Just like Pluto turned out all of those other activities such as sports, religion and foreign entanglements, so too will Pluto have it’s way with all things Capricornian and do it in half the time. Even Robert Rubin and his CITI pals are feeling the heat.
Watch out Wall St. Watch out Beltway. The skeletons are rattling their bones down in the basement.
