WHEN THIS WORLD CATCHES FIRE
BOOK THREE: SAVAGE NOXTOWN
CHAPTER TEN: PART THIRTY-SIX: KINGDOM COME

The three women left the Seven Stars bar en masse, and Count Victor Justin lost some of his sly look as he he drunkenly held forth to Pappy O’Day and Tipsy Smith. “Ye damn well better listen and listen good, ” said he. “I’m buyin’.”
Indeed, Pappy O’Day, old as the the ball-headed rascal was, looked remarkably invigorated as the schooners of beer kept rolling across the scarred wooden surface of the bar.

“Feed the sick,” said the Count, “clothe the hungry, comfort the naked. That’s my motto. And that there’s my religion, too. I’ll admit that maybe I got it mixed up backwards. But don’t never say I ever say my prayers backwards.That’s how you summon the Evil One. You know what I mean. 

“Some say the that money is the root of all evil. I wouldn’t go that far. But what is life? In this country it’s all about John Davis. Jack. Gelt. Moolah. The devil’s dung. I’ll admit; when I had it, I spent it. I was never selfish. Pewter is made to be spent, if not outright squandered. Otherwise, it sticks to your soul the most. Like a wart. Who wants that? 
“I knew a man–a mingy old miser–he died broke. Got caught up in a stock market swindle. Sometimes it’s the greediest duffers who suffer the most. God almighty catches up to ’em. And sometimes it’s the blameless. The guilty must suffer. And it’s all a crapshoot. The innocent must suffer too. Love is Ready John and Ready John is love. Spread your dimmock wherever you go, and you’re sure to be remembered when you die. Like a squirrel and his nuts. Don’t laugh. Up at the park one time I seen a baby squirrel go toe to toe with a bulldog to protect his acorns. Bulldog got the worst of it. The furry little critter wouldn’t quit.  
“What wouldn’t  a man do for money? Climb the highest mountain, swim the deepest river? Only a chump gives it away for free. Honesty? Tell me, then, who is honest? Only the drunk. Too foozled to lie, and he doesn’t want to anyway. That’s why if you’re going to gamble in card games, you need to know how to hold your liquor. Even the most cunning drunks will tell the truth, but everybody else will lie when it suits them. Oh, they’ll refer to it as prevarication…or they’ll tell you that you needn’t worry, it’s only a white lie, but the truth is a scarce commodity anywhere you go. The only people who tell the truth are the people you don’t listen to. The crazy ones. I read a fairy story about that, once, somewhere. 
“Why do they tell you to save for a rainy day? It’s always raining somewhere. I say let us buy the things that money can buy, and let the goo-goos worry about the rest. I’ll take it one step further. I say, why not worship posh? Cash Money Down is the best way to fully experience life. Wooing women without having palm oil to spread around is like wooing an old maid who’s no beauty. There’s no future in it. None. And it’s easier to make friends with brass. Lots and lots of it. How else are you going to stand for drinks withouten you have the ooftish? Eh, Tipsy? 
“Money–worthless? No, my friend, it isn’t so, and please note that the poets who tell you that the hard stuff has no worth are always the first in line when the free drinks are being handed out. Because people with no chips may be pure at heart, though I doubt it, but one thing’s for sure–they have no pride. Give them diamonds, furs and gold–and see how quickly they give them up. 
“Your noble poverty is cold comfort indeed, you lilies of the field! The idea of happiness without hay is a cruel joke. Only the most insolent whippersnapper would even countenance the idea. You can be sure that the man who says he hates money also hates America, and our American way of life. And is a sucker, to boot. Just waiting for a chance to show how greedy he can be. 
“You may note that I say “he”–no woman has ever been known to preach such twaddle, Women, for all their monstrous traits, are wise–and they know better. They know about the inner calm a fat bankroll can bring. Why else do they always chatter ceaselessly about “pin money” and the like? Behind every rich man is likely a good woman who pushed him along and socked away the ducats one at a time.
“Most fellers would rather snooze and fish. Believe me; I know. But there’s nothing else like having chinkers. Ochre is like a magic wand–wave it around, and good things start to happen. 
“Even better than having your own Yaller Boys to spend is having the use of someone else’s. But here’s the downside–there’s no challenges left once you’re sitting on a huge pile of muck. That’s why you have to spend it all–so that you’re forced to go out and make more. That’s why some people never stop trying to get one over–on you and everyone else–they’re scared to death that if they stop moving, they will die. 
“Even God is not immune to the lure of Shiners. Has He ever said so? I don’t know about it. “Of what use is money in the hand of a fool, since he has no desire to get wisdom?” Haww…. 
“That is why I have no compunction whatsoever about swindling some sucker out of his bankroll. Chances are, he got his pelf through some crooked means. The man who earns his stumpy honest-like ain’t so quick to wager it on a fool’s errand. There is, I’ll warrant, a kind of fool that’s sloppy with his wad no matter how it was earned. Because it takes all kinds.  
“I find that most honest folk are different, but every single dishonest man is exactly the same. The experienced practitioner need only look to the gleam in a rogue’s eye. Take his tin away from him and you plunge a knife through his heart, but it’s all for the good. He learns a valuable lesson. At least, it is to be hoped. A lesson worth every bit of the lost coppers! 
“I believe in charity. To a point. Mostly for Yours Truly. Some say you should put your money where your mouth is. I say you should make sure you have enough of the actual to begin with–before you even open your gob.”

CONTROVERSIES IN POPULAR CULTURE.
813. BEN CARSON’S GREATEST HITS

Carson has been relatively obscure – so here are a few of his best hits:
 
1) On wheth­er be­ing gay is a choice: “Be­cause a lot of people who go in­to pris­on go in­to pris­on straight” and when they come out, they’re gay. So, did something hap­pen while they were in there? Ask your­self that ques­tion.”
 
2) On polit­ic­al cor­rect­ness: “I mean, [our so­ci­ety is] very much like Nazi Ger­many. And I know you’re not sup­posed to say ‘Nazi Ger­many,’ but I don’t care about polit­ic­al cor­rect­ness. You know, you had a gov­ern­ment us­ing its tools to in­tim­id­ate the pop­u­la­tion. We now live in a so­ci­ety where people are afraid to say what they ac­tu­ally be­lieve.”
 
3) On the IRS: “You know, we live in a Gestapo age, people don’t real­ize it.”
 
4) On Ad­vanced Place­ment his­tory class: “I think most people, when they fin­ish that course, they’d be ready to go sign up for IS­IS.”
 
5) On vet­er­ans dy­ing wait­ing for med­ic­al care from the De­part­ment of Vet­er­ans Af­fairs: “I think what’s hap­pen­ing with the vet­er­ans is a gift from God to show us what hap­pens when you take lay­ers and lay­ers of bur­eau­cracy and place them between the pa­tients and the health care pro­vider. And if we can’t get it right, with the re­l­at­ively small num­ber of vet­er­ans, how in the world are you go­ing to do it with the en­tire pop­u­la­tion?”
 
6) On Obama­care: “You know, Obama­care is really, I think, the worst thing that has happened in this na­tion since slavery. And it is, in a way, it is slavery in a way be­cause it is mak­ing all of us sub­ser­vi­ent to the gov­ern­ment.”
 
7) On Obama’s ap­pear­ance: When a col­league said the pres­id­ent “looks clean. Shirt’s white. The tie. He looks el­eg­ant,” Car­son re­spon­ded: “Like most psy­cho­paths. That’s why they’re suc­cess­ful. That’s the way they look. They all look great.” He later said: “But he knows he’s telling a lie! He’s try­ing to sell what he thinks is not true! He’s sit­ting there say­ing, ‘These Amer­ic­ans are so stu­pid I can tell them any­thing.’”
 
8) On sim­il­ar­it­ies between the Found­ing Fath­ers, who were “will­ing to die for what they be­lieved,” and IS­IS: “They’ve [IS­IS] got the wrong philo­sophy, but they’re will­ing to die for what they be­lieve, while we’re busily giv­ing away every value and every be­lief for the sake of polit­ic­al cor­rect­ness.”
 
9) On the im­port­ance of the GOP win­ning the Sen­ate in 2014: In Au­gust, Car­son said he couldn’t be sure “there will even be an elec­tion in 2016” if Re­pub­lic­ans didn’t go on to win that fall. (His wife also said they were keep­ing their son’s Aus­trali­an pass­port handy if the elec­tion didn’t go their way.)
 
That’s right. That’s the guy who just tied Donald Trump in the poll. The GOP just confirmed that bat-shit crazy is the now officially the way forward in their party.
