Merlin 3:28 “Blood and Thunder”

Merlin 3:28 “Blood and Thunder”
~ @mjbanks

To the lowlands a full moon rises above linden trees, the blue-sky night menacing void lingers on the rampant doom, brazen is their power, emblazoned is the hour, flaming are the towers, a war of worth has come. Addressing chaos with retaliation ten wizards, eleven warlocks, twelve warlords, and thirteen warriors, brawling within the confines of the outer wall, balancing tomes of acrimony against the werewolves of Lilith and Fenrir, address their fates. Many more farmers and common ilk battle in the serfdom fields with even less luck, rising with farming tools abound aloud and screaming as they are tossed aside more like nuisance than nemeses. Outlandishly and in unnatural pestilence, the lupine beasts taking no pain from their injuries as their sinews and synapses both pull straining discord as hellion bone and blood that heal slowly and surely in the blatant moonlight.

Penances to claws and clashes in summary conflict, magicians being their hated and hunted prey any victory resides solely with concerted efforts the result of anger, magic to slow and any weapon to dismember and wroth to cease mutts from mutilating them, and yet still not a true death or solution. Unless to leap from while slashing or onto while crashing the berserkers, man wolf more dangerous than bear, are formidable in their least.

Within the militarized circle, Sino has not escaped the carnage, taunting between fighting measures, across the battle of bloodshed in abundance and brutal blasts, two wizards similar each wading the war with powers dark and light, come tête-à-tête, thrashing any foe dare nears.

Merlin: “The war source is your certainty and mirrored dream.”
Sino: “My goal is to spread lies about myself, just like all good men.”
Merlin: “Renowned purity will end the war.”
Sino: “Where evil hides, without conscriptions of the able?”
Merlin: “There is obeisance, and there is askance.”

Merlin’s fingers electrify, a wolf leaps to him, but Merlin steps aside growing electricity that consumes the werewolf, which collides with the collapse of an already crumbling wall, a man almost, flies from roof with spear impaling it.

Sino: “Without leadership, there will be endless war.”
Merlin: “Perceiving all conflict a reflection, meets many a hunter, and never to kill.”

Eyes set to kill, watching from the darkness staring atop shadowy wall, rising silhouette of muscular beast, Sino having been watching the darkness rise, a smile and narrowing eyes he digs his foot as if ready to point fire at Merlin, lurking menace deciding which magic blood to taste.

Sino: “Wrong again.”

The fangs of a veracious appetite, content to carve and tear and drain with misdemeanor and puerile volatility, temperately offensive, distinguishment worthy of a wolf and its midsummer-night dream. The spear-driving battler of oft bloodshed leaps thru one of the last intact windows without simple fracture, rolling to his feet with sword in hand and sinister clouded eyes, staring madly at Sino.

The dust disheveled beneath Sino’s feet rolls as he runs into the shadowed stricture between two abodes. Merlin turns looks and leans after him, the man from thru the window kneeling in exhaustion, as the werewolf leaps, certain to spearhead Merlin’s glowing hands as he leans the direction he flies, gliding over his feet brighter his palms glowing and smoky-blue, rushing to a lamppost with the hound on his heels. As he reaches the lantern built sturdy for storm  Merlin snaps it by wherewithal norms, breaking it like a dry corn stalk, grimacing fangs of wolf fur-covered grimace are here batted with a turn and mighty smash, he tosses the heavy steel baton on the beast and torching creature ignited and ignored.

Half the fighters are dying loudly or silently bloodily dead, warriors and some wizards, three other wolves on the encircling roof, watching their pack mate burn and stand, with fiery wounds of flesh burning and healing simultaneously as they tower at their leaping points, intent to reconcile flesh as food to reproach their palates with tithe bound of deathly clutch.

Merlin abounds transfixing his focus of direction, but in an instant turns and slogs with a club at the beast and again until it rests. A cringing toil another beast leaps thrice, twice of two walls, crashing thru weapons cases and runs aloft smoldering once ignited by fire of Merlin’s hex of white sparks, a younger werewolfling chased with one of the spilled weapons from an otherwise locked armory box by the daring acrobat master bred and born of the warrior city. A nameless assassin, who will live to write his name in the blood of his next self-assigned targets, oft as many ravaging stampeding teams trace the bloody grounds, other warriors launching fatal unsporting cross-bolts from fortified places and makeshift defilade, trapped within castle made of only walls fabricated to keep the plentiful game of the dark forest at bay.

...until Obama is OUT OF OFFICE


empty date, user name unallocated/assigned (I'm not famous but you could've at least put my name in it), health services attained by The Great Void, thanks me for making changes on my first submission; it's like a pseudo-intellectual liberal joke about the private-sector marketplace they think isn't real, for $600+ million.

[4:32:26 pm]: Thanks for contacting Health Insurance Marketplace Live Chat. Please wait while we connect you to someone who can help.

[4:32:29 pm]: Please be patient while we're helping other people.

How may I help you?

[4:33:34 pm]: Matthew
I'm at the "View Eligibility Result" page, i viewed the PDF and it doesn't say if I qualify, or what to do next.

Big blank space, overbuffered text

[4:34:40 pm]: Melissa
I apologize for the inconvenience.

[4:34:44 pm]: Melissa
Is the page blank?

[4:35:50 pm]: Matthew
No, but several sections are. The "What should I do next?" section is blank. Please explain.

[4:36:17 pm]: Melissa
Sometimes the pop-up blocking software that is installed on your computer can cause you difficulty in viewing certain information on the Internet. Turning off your pop-up blocker may allow you to see the information you are having trouble accessing.

[4:36:58 pm]: Matthew
That's nice, the pdf is missing sections. Can you tell me what the next step for me to acquire the insurance is?

[4:37:46 pm]: Melissa
Unfortunately, I am unable to answer your question. However, you can reach us toll free at 1-800-318-2596.

[4:38:14 pm]: Matthew
So i just game [sic, oops] my personal information and time for nothing?

[4:38:56 pm]: Matthew
How about this.

[4:39:05 pm]: Melissa
No, of course not. All your information will be saved so next time you log in, you will not have to input it again.

[4:39:18 pm]: Matthew
What would be the typical next step for someone who is trying to get insurance via the site?

Please contact the following numbers that are not following.
[4:40:47 pm]: Melissa
After you submitted your application, we will send you your results via mail.

[4:42:09 pm]: Matthew
Should the same result occur, I'll go to the 'welfare' office and apply for the insurance that i can't afford and didn't want and couldn't get on a $635 million website for the tech support that told me a popup blocker blanked a pdf space.

[4:43:27 pm]: Melissa
I apologize for the inconvenience.

[4:43:32 pm]: Melissa
Do you have any other questions that I can help you with?

[4:45:32 pm]: Matthew
The form says I can access my HIP information via this website, how do I do that?

[4:47:06 pm]: Melissa
Do you mean the health insurance plans?

[4:49:03 pm]: Matthew

[4:49:55 pm]: Matthew
the pdf says to access "HealthCare.gov/marketplace" but that page doesn't exist.


[4:50:16 pm]: Matthew
$635 million dollars, and the page doesn't exist.

the (at the time) dead link, and; the repeating glitch referring me to another agency?, wtf
[4:50:41 pm]: Melissa
We have a lot of visitors trying to use our website. This is causing some glitches for some people trying to create accounts or log in. There is no estimated resolution time. We thank you for your patience and ask you to try again. Meanwhile, I can send you a link that you may use to get estimated pricing.

[4:50:51 pm]: Melissa
Let me send you the link.

[4:51:01 pm]: Melissa

[4:51:50 pm]: Melissa
Do you have any other questions that I can help you with?

[4:53:23 pm]: Matthew
good think [sic, oops] I wasn't trying to do those things. I am not searching for premiums, I have no income, and I only am applying because it is now the law. Where, perhaps, would that page be? 

[4:56:11 pm]: Melissa
You may find a lot of useful information on healthcare.gov about exemptions being that you stated you currently have no income.

[4:56:43 pm]: Matthew
and yet I didn't and am asking tech support.

[4:57:06 pm]: Melissa
You may qualify for an exemption if you are not required to file a tax return because your income is too low, or you can't afford coverage because the minimum amount you must pay for the premiums is more than a specified percentage of your household income.

It should be called --> AffluentHealthINSURANCECustomersOnly.COM ; people aren't signing up b/c it's not what the 30million new "welfare" dole patients, are to use

[4:57:41 pm]: Matthew
you're giving me the runaround, I'm just going to find a local federal office and try there.

You have 10 days to request the thing you thought the $600 million (taxpayer funded) website was supposed to do, or.... big ass blank space.

[4:58:11 pm]: Matthew
This website looks like a way for gov't to squirm into the Health Insurance market, if I wanted cheap insurance I'd use State Farm, or something, in my humble opinion. I'm sorry, I thought this website was for those who could not afford insurance, apparently for millions of dollars no one can afford to tell me that.

[4:59:10 pm]: Melissa
Thank you for your patience. I am still researching that information.
[5:00:41 pm]: Melissa
Thank you for your patience. I am still researching that information.
[5:04:01 pm]: Melissa
Do you have any other questions that I can help you with?
[5:05:12 pm]: Matthew
for your help - I had to signin to the link you sent, when i did it took me to my "profile" or "account info" or something, and it says the status of my application is "in progress" so I assume some annoying telemarketer will be harassing me soon to buy a 'very special plan' or some commercial BS, you were more help then I leadon, the PDF still had/has blank sections, overlapping text, redundant typo/text, and after "Dear:" it doesn't have my name, thank you for YOUR patience. I have to blog this rigamarole now.

The last text overlay, I'm calling the "Heal Glitch" because as you can see, the word "Heal" just erroneously is stamped on the line, kind of cerebral/meta. it's the last glitch in the PDF, the remaining five (of nine total) pages are errorless and read like a brochure, with disclaimers, then the cost analysis that you can hear anytime being screamed by any liberal screaming from the caves of mainstream-media, including medicaid (dole) information (un)liability disclaimers, how to use the dole in fifteen (15) other languages. "Heal," as if to say, 'try to get better'.

[5:05:54 pm]: Melissa
I apologize for the inconvenience.
[5:06:01 pm]: Melissa
Do you have any other questions that I can help you with?
[5:07:56 pm]: Melissa
Thank you for contacting Health Insurance Marketplace Live Chat. We are here to help you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
[5:08:03 pm]: 'Melissa' has left the chat session.

/§/ Do you have to keep ending sentences with 'with'?
Try, "Do you have any other questions that I can help you?"

So it may be nice for the people's republic of socialism to be able to vote on how coverage goes, i remember they/we wanted exemption/protection from preexisting conditions excluding people from coverage, but that was removed by potus, there was an 'employer mandate' that would've included those mega corporations that potus derides so much, but that was removed by potus. So, today I've learned that if I qualify for the exemption to the tax I didn't want, I can't learn them on the one $600M site rumored to do so. Also, this in no way makes healthcare cheaper, I saw the rates, better to go to the private sector, tho neither option adds doctors or guarantees service. Let's not forget, doctors in the healthcare exchange (HEX) will get federal rebates for quicker service in a cave than the doctor who takes time to heal the patient. It's a rewards program, the rewards of hell, but a program.

GDP to population ratio, very low, government solutions to IQ scores, even lower. Yes, some people are recorded as utilizing Unemployment Benefits, quit forgetting to add the people on EBT, who receive said funds because they're not working also. The workers are doing more for less, while the political class and the obedient classless are doing less for more.

Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there, while govt is looking into the problem indefinitely for way too much money, and if you don't like it pay a fine. Cuba does it this way, free healthcare, but there aren't enough doctors and are shortages of medicine. This madness is called serfdom in the dictionary, where the fuck is the media?

Big Quote Time. /§/

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people yourself is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered. If we're compassionate, we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint.

"People try to argue that government isn't really force. You believe that? Try not paying your taxes. (This is only a thought experiment -- suggesting on CNN.com that someone not pay his or her taxes is probably a federal offense, and I'm a nut, but I'm not crazy.). When they come to get you for not paying your taxes, try not going to court. Guns will be drawn. Government is force -- literally, not figuratively.

"I don't believe the majority always knows what's best for everyone. The fact that the majority thinks they have a way to get something good does not give them the right to use force on the minority that don't want to pay for it. If you have to use a gun, I don't believe you really know jack. Democracy without respect for individual rights sucks. It's just ganging up against the weird kid, and I'm always the weird kid." ~ Penn Jillette

/§/ Speaking of govt force, this week DC riot police clashed with amputee octogenarian Vietnam War vets. These hippies hate the military so much they became the jackbooted thugs they claim to hate, just to prove the tragically and sadly ironic point, and so the circle continues. /§/

I need to close this with info from today, you can't make this shit up, I've tried, read the caption.

There's a debate in DC, o'notreagan wants to extend, in ultimatum, the debt looming over the future, others and I for one don't, the twitter pic today of Potus D'Totus says "END THIS NOW" - it's a picture of a famous DC building, are we supposed to end government buildings when the leftist typically and deeply despises anti-collectivism?  - for those of you who haven't noticed yet, it is a picture of the fucking Library of Congress. Are we supposed to end the dangers of libraries or is the left pitifully afraid of people who can read? I fear this is another closely-dystopian Fahrenheit 451 moment.
