What to do?

Greetings good citizen,

Most of you should be convinced by now that the current administration is nothing more than a pale imitation of the previous administration…not nearly as reckless as their predecessors but not even slightly interested in altering the disastrous course the ‘oligarchs’ have set the nation upon.

If you have ever wondered, no matter how fleetingly, what a ‘captive government’ would look like here in the (former) land of the free, you need look no further than the current administration for, were such a text to exist, a ‘textbook example’.

If you needed convincing that your vote was ‘worthless’, look at the current White House and see the ‘fruit’ of your choice in action. Look at the results and ask yourself just how different the promise was from the actual result.

Worse, there is nothing we can do about this, er, ‘treason’ until 2012…and then it is (unless somebody grows a gonad) very likely we’ll be saddled with this, er ‘disappointment’ in what will prove to be a very ‘critical’ election. (This is all predicated on the fact that the Republicans refrain from shutting down the government in a fit of pique sometime before summer arrives.) (I am still of a mind that this is how our 230 year old nation will meet its end, in the ‘abdication’ of legal power due to the failure to bring ANY of them to justice.

A Justice that nobody in Washington is particularly interested in seeing.

Being a ‘cracker’ I have to be careful how I criticize the current administration or risk having my critical comments dismissed as being ‘racially motivated’

However, one of my favorite columnists is not similarly ‘handicapped’ and here’s what he had to say:

Nearly 44 million people were living in poverty in 2009, which was more than 14 percent of the American population and a jump of four million from the previous year. Anyone who thinks things are much better now is delirious. More than 15 million children are poor — one of every five kids in the United States. More than a quarter of all blacks and a similar percentage of Hispanics are poor.

Are we doing anything about this? No. Our government officials, from the president on down, are too busy kissing the bejeweled fingers of the megarich. [snip]

[It gets better]

Welfare, even for the poorest of the poor, is not much help. More than 17 million people may be living in extreme poverty, but welfare, for most of the people who need it, was “reformed” right out of existence. [Thanks, Bill Clinton!] TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families), which is what welfare is called now, helps far fewer people than welfare used to, even though the poor have been laid low by the worst economy since the Depression.

Hardly anyone cares. Hardly anyone even notices.

With the tax cuts for the rich saved and William Daley coming on board, the atmosphere is being readied for Obama & Co. to tap the fat cats for the zillions necessary for next year’s re-election run. And that, of course, is the only thing that really matters.

This, naturally, leads us to wonder just what we are going to do when 2012 arrives…should we all be rooting for the Mayan curse? Will civilization as we have come to know it already be ‘circling the drain’ come the elections?

What’s interesting this time around is how quiet it has been since the ‘mid-terms’. The media isn’t promoting ‘their’ candidates two full years ahead of time like they did for the 2008 election. Hell, the conservative gasbag-o-sphere was already clamoring for a ‘Hillary vs. McCain matchup all the way back to 2004!

The ‘damning’ part about that particular ‘out loud wish’ was, push come to shove, Hillary was probably the ONLY candidate McCain could have beaten.

Like his predecessor, the ‘Great Communicator’, the Great Triangulator wasn’t nearly as popular as the (CO) media would like you to believe.

If we were to ask if Obama could beat Sarah Palin, would the answer be, what difference would it make?

We’re already looking at what the Palin presidency would look like. It would be both tone deaf and completely out of touch with reality, just like the current administration.

Sadly good citizen, this isn’t going to end well.

There will be blood and there will be war…and many millions (if not billions) will die.

All so a few can be rich.

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
