Dodged Bullets

Greetings good citizen,

It’s almost a week since Verizon promised me a new router and it still hasn’t arrived. Well, after nudging my favorite source of inspiration to come out of seclusion I decided I shouldn’t play the ‘waiting for parts’ card any longer either.

(Although I truly do not like the keyboard on my wife’s computer! My fat fingers are wearing out the backspace key…)

Worse, I suspect my problem is the Ethernet cable and the router is working just fine. So I’m really dogging it.

Um, here in the ‘afterglow’ of the election I can say I am not displeased with being ‘wrong’. I didn’t want to cope with the changes a Romney victory would have held.

That said the, er, (fucking) >One Percent still ‘won’ as their boy Obama is still licking their boots.

And what is the FIRST THING stupid did?

Why he ‘reached out’ to his Republican cohorts…like that has ever worked in the past.

But that is neither here nor there, the next four years he is free to do his masters bidding without fear of reprisal from the voting public.

Which leaves us the question of why did the, er, ‘democrats’ not challenge the incumbent, especially considering how unhappy a majority of the public has been with his, er, ‘performance?’

Oh, he got re-elected all right…because the alternative was too ugly to contemplate!

Which is to point to the exact same thing all of the other political pundits are saying, that the electoral process is broken.

Oh, just for full disclosure, I DID NOT vote for the incumbent…I voted for those who were jailed for protesting their exclusion from the presidential debates!

And I’m no Greenie.

How curious is it that under anarchy there are no ‘candidates’? (You vote directly on the laws!)

It is what Anarchy is all about, ‘rules WITHOUT RULERS!’

But that is not what I want to focus on.
Tonight, after nearly a week of silence, I want to direct your attention to the rail car you’ve been chained to.

Let’s start with the Republicans sudden craving for ‘introspection’…what went wrong and how can we fix it?

Well, I’ll tell you what I think ‘went wrong’.

They somehow sensed that people weren’t buying their horseshit anymore…and if they stole another election that they would risk a violent revolt the likes of which haven’t been seen in over two hundred years!

So they ‘engineered’ the lesser of two evils instead. They got their lapdog re-elected so they can ram their unpopular policies down the public’s throat while the ‘Democrats’ held power…like the NAFTA fuck job, passed by the first Republican controlled congress in nearly a hundred years! With a (so-called) Democrat in the White House.

Well, what happens next is going to make that look like a Sunday Picnic.

Which is to point out that the bullet we thought we dodged is still racing towards out heart. The animals who fired it are still in charge and they can take us out any time they want to.

When it hits it will literally knock the stuffing right out of us…and there won’t be a thing we can do about it.

Short of track down and execute the bastards responsible.

But it’s tough to remember when you’re up to your ass in alligators that your original intent was to drain the swamp…

And that’s right where we’re going to find ourselves…just as we will be able to find them; herding the alligators in our direction.

I admit to being wrong about another stolen election…but I suspect the ONLY reason it didn’t happen is because the perps realized (maybe at the last minute) that it hasn’t been ‘morning in America’ for almost thirty years.

In fact, I suspect the Republicans woke up and suddenly realized that their Reaganite followers are either dead or dying…and their numbers were shrinking instead of swelling.

You’d think the 25,000 or so Tea Partiers (almost all ‘older than dirt’) that showed up at that rally in DC last year showed them where the bear shit.

So the pricks have all of the money…they DON’T have a large enough of a following to convince anyone they are capable of a legitimate political victory.

Sure, they’ve got the Religious Right and other ‘End Timers’ on their side…which is yet another scary reminder of what happens when you try to mix religion with politics…

But it is important that you, the regular citizen, not lose sight of what’s important and that would be removing thee criminals from power BEFORE they loot the planet and throw civilization onto its own cesspool to cover their crime.


Will YOU hold the incumbent’s feet to the fire and MAKE HIM PROSECUTE the criminals who let Wall Street ruin the pensions of millions of workers while the banks get a free ride on the public’s purse?

Not having that conversation…WHY?

We have to return to the business of caring for our growing population, and we must do it RESPONSIBLY! (WE ALSO HAVE TO DO IT NOW!)

Um, thanks for letting me inside your head,

Glad to be back!
