Four more YEARS! FOUR MORE YEARS!!
Just some quick thoughts, as I am once again heading out the door in a few minutes. so, don't expect anything in the way of well thought out, pithy writing.
I haven't felt like this since Reagan was re-elected. That was my thought when I heard Kerry was on his way to make his concession speech.
Then, I thought about what Kerry would say. I won't bother to listen. He'll say it was a good, hard campaign, and the American people should accept the results. The democratic process worked, and the people have decided.
It's a load of crap of course. The people aren't smart enough to decide anything beyound what program they are going to watch on TV tonight. Nor do they want that level of responsibility. That's really what won it for Baby Bush - not only was he not taking responsibility for anything that occurred in his first four years, NO ONE was held responsible for anything.
What really drives me nuts, is my imagination. Consider the year 2023. Baby Bush dies of whatever - I know, a joyful day for me, but I will have to listen to the eulogizing. I will have to hear what a great president he was. How he did something. How he accomplished something. And it won't have anything to do with what he actually did, which by enlarge is nothing. He just sits back and let's the corporations loot our country, and our country will want to replace Washington's face on the one dollar bill, or at least Grant's face on the twenty with Baby Bush'. Hell, maybe all of our currencly will have his face on it. And, I'll have to hear about it.
The next four years will be interesting though. The repubs have now got a serious majority in both houses. Baby Bush will be able to stack the supreme court with, well they won't be morons, well some of them might be, but they will more likely be, I don't know, evil? Greedy, scum sucking...The worst our law schools put out? Fundamentalists, who will think civil rights, hell, all of our rights, were put into the constitution and the law by mistake? That the wealthy truly do have a right to expect a different degree of justice than the poor? I don't know.
The Chinese have a curse to the affect of "May you live in interesting times". We do and are. It will most certainly be interesting. Mayhaps, the most interesting thing will be to see how the republican party starts to splinter. How some will try to distance themselves from Baby Bush. How some might actually develop a conscience, and vote for the good of their constituents.
Having it all, doesn't necessarily mean you have it all. Now will come the infighting. The dirtiest of fights. Reminiscent of the dems' problems when they held all of the branches. I mean, short of a real putsch, I don't expect the party leadership to get the membership to toe the party line. They have acheived power; now they'll fight over it.
What will the dems do? Well, hopefully, whither away and die on the vine; making room for a party that actually tries to represent the majority of Americans' interests. In reality, suspect nothing of the sort.
ALL HAIL ! Swear alligence to EXXON, GM, Proctor-Gamble, AIG, ADM (SuperMarket to the world), or perhaps the rise of a new superbrand(!) - THE AMERICAN HOMELAND COMPANY.
Geez. I really hate being stuck with an imagination. I should go back to the basement and watch the latest installment of the World Series of Poker, or something. I should immerse myself in mindless drivel. I should quit fighting it, and just accept the ugly facts. I should just sit back, find some distraction, as my country is stolen from beneath my feet, while my fellow citizens, blissfully wrapped in their culture of myths, rar approvingly.
Or, maybe I should just accept the new world order, and figure out how to steal as much as I can. Maybe like TIME.com: Marc Rich, if I steal enough, I too will earn a presidential pardon. Maybe that's the solution - Acceptance, followed by a whole lot of wallowing in greed. I think I can do it. Must think positive. I know I can do it. I CAN DO IT! I CAN STEAL FROM MY NEIGHBORS AND FEEL REALLY GOOD ABOUT IT. I CAN DO IT!!!!
FOUR MORE YEARS!!! FOUR MORE YEARS!!!
