I didn't get it until I got to the end, "Blood turns to wine when I leak for police", then I went back and saw that it seems to all be about the recent police violence scandals and "Black Lives Matter" . . .

"buttery gold, jittery zeitgeist . . . Eye for an eye" = the police's badges, as symbols of righteous authority and protection, seem to melt away quickly these days. Instead, we seem to see panicky, primitive, reactions to an over-generalized perception of threat from the community.

"The mouths water . . . Blood turns to wine . . . that's not a riot, it's a feast . . ." = Like bloodthirsty savages, they seem to seek out and relish any opportunity to justify violence

Nice to meet you. I work in the health care industry, there are groups at my company that have been focused on the ramifications of the ACA since it was passed, and our general consensus is that it's entirely manageable. The only fear, uncertainty, or doubt that I see is coming from the tragically misinformed, and those with an underhaded agenda!

How about we let individuals and businesses decide where they're going to put their R&D money, not some ivory-tower bureaucrats who are firmly removed from reality?


Well, "individuals and business" seem to think that Baconnaise and Chocolate Chip Pancakes & Sausage on a Stick are the best way to spend R&D money, so . . . no.
