Okay- so I've kind of taken it easy on the old blog since the election- seemed liked things were good, we got a bunch of people in office, including the big one on Pennsylvania Ave.- what could possibly go wrong?
Ah, yes. I forgot. As Stephen King once wrote, there are a lot of assholes out there, and they travel in packs.
Let me put it another way:
The Right Wing sucks donkeys.
Seriously. The entire right wing sucks donkey dongs.
I don't know why this upsets me- it's been this way pretty much my entire life. But still, I get angry.
To speak to one facet of my dismay, let's talk about health care, or the lack thereof for most Americans. It's absurd. We have the most expensive health care system in the world, but not the most affective or available. Aren't we supposed to be The USA, the country that people are proud to be from? So, Obama et al try to get something going, get something passed that will help the average citizen- and the right wing goes whacko- I mean like Michael Jackson Whacko Jacko. There is a whole set out there trying to convince our seniors that the plan Obama is pushing will basically encourage euthanasia of the elderly. Isn't that nice? The politics of fear is alive and well and lives in the heart of all those cheating, lying, creepy old white men who are the GOP.
But then, this is not news, is it? We all know that the GOP, and to a lesser extent some in the Democratice party, suck at the teat of the great Corporate Cow who rules over us all, the Great Bovine of the Military Industrial Complex.
What to do?
I think, first off- I'm calling my senators and congress person and telling them to get with the program or I will do as much as I can to make sure they don't keep their office.
Next, I am going to pray to every God I can think of to either curse those bastards, or make the scales fall from their eyes.
Then I'm going to listen to some really good music- maybe Arcade Fire or the Shins or the D'Haene or Robbie Gil.
And then I'll watch the Daily Show and the Colbert Report to keep my sense of humor.
And God bless Conan for having Shatner do Palin. Whoopee.
