My thoughts on sprint

by OTIS    Jan 28, 2010, 8:41 PM

Sprint's double standards have been getting a lot of undeserved attention recently. If you disagree with my claim that people are looking for answers, not ideology, then read no further. Shame on Sprint for thinking that people like you and me are obtuse! No one is more acrimonious than Sprint. I won't dwell on that except to direct your attention to the impolitic manner in which it has been trying to popularize a genre of music whose graphic lyrics explicitly urge ruthless gadflies to overthrow the government and eliminate the money system. Sprint is the type of organization that turns up its nose at people like you and me. I guess that's because we haven't the faintest notion about the things that really matter such as why it would be good for it to dominate the whole earth and take possession of all its riches.

Sprint is addicted to the feeling of power, to the idea of controlling people. Sadly, it has no real concern for the welfare or the destiny of the people it desires to lead. I must emphasize this because in a tacit concession of defeat, Sprint is now openly calling for the abridgment of various freedoms to accomplish coercively what its lethargic insinuations have failed at. I feel that people who work with Sprint's mercenaries discredit themselves. Excuse me; that's not entirely correct. What I meant to say is that Sprint has been deluding people into believing that its den of thieves is looking out for our interests. Don't let it delude you, too.

Because Sprint wasn't listening when I said this before, I'm forced to repeat myself: Sprint maintains that our only chance of saving the planet is to accept unending regulations and straightjacket "reforms" from its functionaries. This is complete—or at least, incomplete—baloney. For instance, Sprint fails to mention that most of you reading this letter have your hearts in the right place. Now follow your hearts with actions.

It would be great if we could tend to the casualties of Sprint's war on sanity. Still, if we take a step, just a step, towards addressing the issue of vandalism, then maybe we can open people's eyes (including our own) to a vision of how to halt the adulation heaped upon blockish, stroppy mental defectives. I frequently wish to tell Sprint that it publicly disavows its ties to racism while secretly encouraging its lieutenants to fleece people out of their life's savings. But being a generally genteel person, however, I always bite my tongue. Doesn't it strike you as odd that for some strange reason, Sprint is worried it'll be disenfranchised and shunned by mean-spirited yutzes? If you're not part of the solution then you're part of the problem.

Sprint knows how to lie. It's too bad it doesn't yet understand the ramifications of lying. Sprint claims that it can achieve its goals by friendly and moral conduct. I would say that that claim is 70% folderol, 20% twaddle, and 10% another dotty attempt to encourage young people to break all the rules, cut themselves loose from their roots, and adopt an unruly, haughty lifestyle. Is Sprint a pious organization? Yes, although its "piety" unerringly leads it to whichever dogma is best for business. Speaking of which, if Fate desired that Sprint make a correct application of what it had read about quislingism it would have to indicate title and page number since the biggety, clumsy lawless-type would otherwise never in all its existence find the correct place. But since Fate does not do this, Sprint's admirers are unified under a common goal. That goal is to supply the chains that bind the individual to notions of self-loathing and unworthiness.

While others have also published information about picayunish exhibitionists, if Sprint's attempts to do everything possible to keep crude, batty popinjays misguided and unpleasant have spurred us to point out that the emperor has no clothes on, then Sprint may have accomplished a useful thing. Calling Sprint's torchbearers grumpy, corrupt lowbrows may be accurate, but Sprint claims that if it kicks us in the teeth we'll then lick its toes and beg for another kick. I assert that the absurdities within that claim speak for themselves although I should add that Sprint's goal is to clear forests, strip the topsoil, and turn a natural paradise into a dust bowl through a self-induced drought. The toll in human suffering and the loss of innocent lives that will ensue are clearly nonissues for it.

Sprint claims that it is better that a hundred thousand people should perish than that it should be even slightly inconvenienced. I, however, allege that that's a load of crud. Yes, a great many decent people are just as distressed as I am about its ruses, but conclaves of its brethren have all the dissent found in a North Korean communist party meeting. That's why no one there will ever admit that Sprint keeps trying to deceive us into thinking that public opinion is a reliable indicator of what's true and what isn't. The purpose of this deception may be to reward those who knowingly or unknowingly play along with its paroxysms while punishing those who oppose them. Or maybe the purpose is to treat traditional values as if they were villainous crimes. Oh what a tangled web Sprint weaves when first it practices to deceive.

It is disgraceful that, with a wink and a smile, Sprint has signified its approval of politically incorrect, repulsive fanatics who delegitimize our belief systems and replace them with a counter-hegemony that seeks to envelop us in a nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror. This makes me fearful that I might someday find myself in the crosshairs of Sprint's unambitious wisecracks. (To be honest, though, it wouldn't be the first time.)

The question, therefore, must not be, "Whatever happened to Sprint's sense of humanity?" but rather, "Whatever happened to community standards?". The latter question is the better one to ask because if you can make any sense out Sprint's dissolute bait-and-switch tactics then you must have gotten higher marks in school than I did.

Sprint is currently limited to shrieking and spitting when it's confronted with inconvenient facts. Before you know it, however, Sprint is likely to switch to some sort of "abandon me on a desert island" approach to draw our attention away from such facts. No doubt, it must be stated quite categorically that Sprint has no conscience and therefore no feelings of guilt for wanting to spread Comstockism all over the globe like pigeon droppings over Trafalgar Square. But instead of taking the easy path in life, the downward path, we must choose the upward path regardless of the pain, suffering, and sacrifice that this choice entails. Only then can we finally clarify and correct some of the inaccuracies present in Sprint's accusations. Yes, Sprint will try to stop us by insulting my intelligence, but its opinions were never about tolerance and equality. That was just window dressing for the "innocents". Rather, if we foreground the cognitive and emotional palette of Sprint's barbaric adages rather than their pathology we can enter vitally into its world. Why do we want to do that? Because Sprint says that it's okay to leave the educational and emotional needs of our children in the morally repugnant hands of bad-tempered pantywaists. Yet it also wants to create an ideological climate that will enable it to convince others that unbalanced demoniacs are the "chosen people" of scriptural prophecy. Am I the only one who sees the irony there? I ask because we need to condemn its hypocrisy. Why? Because of what's at stake: literally everything. To end this letter, I would like to make a bet with Sprint. I will gladly give Sprint a day's salary if it can prove that honesty and responsibility have no cash value and are therefore worthless, as it insists. If Sprint is unable to prove that, then its end of the bargain is to step aside while I hone in on its faults with laser-like precision. So, do we have a bet, Sprint?
