Well, here it is four weeks till Christmas, and I have no Holiday Spirit!
It took me all of ten minutes to read todays New York Times! Not that it lacked for news. It was simply, that I didn't want to read any of it. It was simply too depressing!
The Republicans evidently got their way. The Dems caved in, and agreed to extend the tax cuts, for the repugs billionaire buddies. So they would agree to extend benefits to the poor slobs who are on unemployment. While they bathe in the pleasure of their evil deed. Everyone else, is crying out for the demise of WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange. What did he do that was so bad? He simply leaked government documents that show just exactly how low our government has sunk! From badmouthing our allies to spying on them. I see him as a hero, for revealing what hypocrites we have become.
Strange timing don't you think. He is accused of rape, just when WikiLeaks releases it's latest embarassment to the United States. I would wager that these women were put up to this, by none other than our friends at the CIA. Yeah I know, I'm a sucker for conspiracy theories, that involve the CIA. But, I can't help but see the timing as a bit too convenient.Oh yes, let's not forget about the supposed source of these leaks. That would appear to be pfc. Bradley Manning. Of course we then have to claim the poor sap is Gay! Yeah, find an low ranking innocent sap who may or may not be Gay and say he's the source, case closed! Now we don't have to investigate further, and we can blame the Gays in the military. Killing two birds with one stone. Now McCain and his bigot friends in the Marine Corps, can add this to their case, as to why Gays should not be allowed in the military. More pure bullshit from the right!
While the United States government is revealed for how low it has sunk, our friends in Congress screw their own citizens. The rich will only get richer, and the poor --- oh well, who gives a damn about them. This is America, the land of plenty for those who take it! Time to do away with government handouts, earmarks and such! What is there to be happy about? The Evil Empire has finally taken over ( read Republicans ). We are being dragged down into a new Dark Age! Only the wealthy will survive. Hell, isn't that what Capitalism is about, the survival of the fittest. You know the one with the most toys, wins! Can't afford health insurance, that's your problem. To hell with rights, to hell with entitlements, to hell with those who don't have the means to survive! This is the world of Ayn Rand, and the Tea Party.
I could suggest some very nasty things for these bastards, but then I could end up on a no fly list, or something worse. So I will simply say, that all the torture of Hell itself is not enough for these bastards! TheApocalypse is finally upon us, and it is the voting public who have brought it on. Oh well!
