Yesterday night at the “Vada Pitiya” programme on TV Derana, a caller asked the Hela Urumaya parliamentarian whether they had killed their conscience before voting in favour of the 18th Amendment. The parliamentarian, whose name escapes me, answered skillfully.

The caller should have known that no matter what you can say about the said political party, you can’t say they have killed their conscience. On the contrary, they are the only party that haven’t done so during the last few years. They, not only have always believed that the LTTE should be defeated militarily, but also have always supported the powerful executive presidency. 224 MPs supported the 17th Amendment, one didn’t, and it was the Hela Urumaya MP.

But it is a padatthara party, formed by, run by, and voted for, padattharayas. The reason is this. Hela Urumaya believes that all Sri Lankan adults (people over 18, who can vote, marry, and run for office) are dumbf**ks, who don’t know right from wrong, and can’t decide what’s best for them.

Therefore, Hela Urumaya thinks that it is their duty to decide what’s best for us. So they try to ban cigarettes, alcohol, movies with adult themes etc. They believe we can’t decide. They believe they must guide us dumb idiots to enlightenment, or rather, force us towards enlightenment.

Padattharayas!

I woke up this morning and the first thing that came across my mind was ELECTRA. No, it had nothing to do with Freud the Pervert or those perverted greek tragedies. No, I remembered Electra the blogger, whose blog is titled “Portrait.” I’m not a big fan of her. Damn, she’s smart. But I’m not, so I don’t understand 3/4 of what she writes. She can write. Her prose is elegant and poetic (and also a little pretentious)…. Anyway I read her blog this morning and realised I was right to not be a big fan of her. You just don’t write long, elegant and poetic essays about these things. You just write “Dear Sri Lankan people. Your President, and your representatives at the parliament have fu*ked you in the ass. Pull your pants down, take pictures of your asses, and send them to me. I’ll post them on my blog.” I would’ve sent her a photo of my ass if sittingnut doesn’t read her blog…… Speaking of the Nut, where is he? He hasn’t published anything lately. I haven’t either, but that’s because my nuts have been more active than my brain. Well, I guess Sittingnut (or Sleepingnut) has deactivated his nuts, just like you would deactivate a Facebook account. How can he live with himself? His boss is ruining the country, and is killing whatever that was left of democracy. How can he live with himself, the self-proclaimed libertarian? What did you do to our asses you asshole?
