Maybe not- I still have my machete! Twisted Evil


Yes. yes you can be delighted. It is a delightful situation. Is Obama the answer to everything? Nope. Is he light years better than George "Patriot Act" Bush? Absolutely. I'd rather the White House be told that I have misinformation on the Health Care thing than be able to demand that google tell them what I've been searching for, or how many books I take out of the library... fuck... how am I going to wirte that porn novel about Bin Laden, after all?

At least we're not "'Mericuns" anymore.
Look, there is NO utopia.
No one is ever gonna make everyone happy.
What would make me happy, would be a pittance to someone else.
So we settle for a balance, a lil' give a lil' take.
Problem is, we the public give, and all our government does is take.
We commit an insane act every four years.
We go to the polls and vote and expect something different to happen.
My money goes on "SSDD".

Ya left out the part where so-called "private" businesses are more than willing to take from the government (i.e., taxpayer).

Cool

I agree that the Democrats are certainly not perfect however their core values are a little more in line with my views than the Republitards. In my mind the Republitards are completely owned by the Corporations and while the Democrats are not without sin they at least try to pass some programs that benefit the average citizen.

The greed and incompetence of the Health Care industry borders on criminal and the Republican Party and the morons that elect them are their accomplices. While I agree that we have the best health care in the world it is really only available to the wealthy or the well connected. The average poor bastard works his/her ass off to provide for his/her family and when a family member gets seriously ill they are lucky if they get the same care that a Somali National gets while visiting with the John Birch Society.

And it is easy to sit back and say that there is no difference between the two parties. But other than moving to a cabin in Montana and isolating yourself from society while you work on your manifesto I cannot think of how that will help improve the situation.

And oh yeah by the way, fuck the blue dogs too!

Yeah the Democrats are not perfect but most of them don't make me embarrassed and ashamed to be an American. And if this seems too harsh then see: George Bush, Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh, anybody on Fox and John Boner too!

And oh yeah just in case you missed it Fuck the Blue Dogs Too!

Reading the above it sounds as if I am really angry but that is really not the case. I have a smile on my face as I write this and I think I just like saying Fuck the Blue Dogs!

Duh, the Patriot Act is still in effect. Because there are still a lot of 'tards who actually consider it patriotic. I was pointing out that Obama has not taken any government big-brotherhood to any higher level than the last administration. BUT... the majority of citizens up-in-arms over the item in the original post (the white house asking for sources of misinformation re: health care) are a-ok with the Patriot Act. Asswipes.

And what was worse under Dubya? The fact that he sounded like an uneducated fool 95% of the time. Wanted to stab my eardrums with a screwdriver every time he had something to say. Obama may speak way too slowly for my tastes, but at least he sounds erudite. Ergo... light years better than W.

But will the dog feel better? Politicians of ANY party are suspect. Because of their chosen line of work. Red, blue, pink or polka-dot.... all of 'em are suspect.

And democrats are owned by unions. Both parties are twisting hard from their respective ends and the middle ends up getting screwed.

Don't worry if it keeps going the way it is there won't be a middle. The middle class is getting squeezed out. A just say no party that won't spare a penny to fight unnecessary wars but will fight like a hungry dog to keep the average citizen's health care on par with a third world country.

I like unions. They gave us weekends off and safety standards in the workplace. I know that to the Limbaugh lovers these are anti-American ideals but they appeal to my inner Socialist.

Now if you'll excuse me I have to get back to my day job of keeping Obama's real Birth Certificate a secret.

Off to the Kremlin ta-ta.

Obama's "Death Panel" holds lightning round to decide the fate of the Palin children.

Trig - Death
Piper - Death
Willow - Saved
Bristol - Death


Sorry, Sarah. Hope you only loved 25% of your children.

Obama does not have to kill them. They are Sarah Palin's children, natural selection is bound to catch up with them sooner or later!

Does anyone have a circa 1960 IBM Selectric font?
