What’s the biggest news in politics? It’s not the debate over who want’s to be the next U.S. President and inherit the worst economy in the last 100 years. It’s not arguments with who thinks who is right and wrong. It’s the high and mighty in Washington D.C. who represent the rest of the country and unknowingly or unconcernedly the rest of the world. The last bit of political nose punching came over the summer when Republicans and Democrats couldn’t step over their money piles long enough to come to an agreement that could keep the U.S. Economy for collapse. Sure, it may have been an arbitrary number and a fictitious collapse date, but so what! The fact remains that the whole problem only led to more contentious bickering and hair pulling. Never-mind that the world was watching and praying that the once leader of the world economy could pull the struggling and fragile economies from the depths of despair. Never-mind that it could have been as easy as signing your name. But no. The mudslinging, name calling, hard nosed, self serving politicians who (in all fairness) did win their elected positions by begging for money and support catered to those who could feed the most contributions into their re-election campaign.
Now we’re at it again and the world is watching. Not only are they watching but they have taken lessons from the Fat Cats in Washington and began to pull the same hardline tactics that would scare the most ruthless businessman. Governments around the globe are taking notes on round two of the U.S. Economic showdown on budget cuts, expenditures and pork-belly earmarks that only benefit the politicians and their constituents. One side pushes cuts, wants to cut environmental programs and social programs that actually benefit people and the world. The other side is willing to cut but not from the programs that help the average ‘guy on the street’. Neither can seem to agree on anything other than that they don’t agree and are intent on bashing heads until one or the other is dead.
So what to do? The Disaster Recovery Fund is nearing empty and FEMA wants more money, but they need a billion dollars and the government says they don’t have it. The new Gang of 12 is set to debate on how to raise the debt ceiling without plummeting further down the slide of disparity. Nations around the world are on the verge of collapse and teetering with just letting it happen and no one wants to admit that the U.S. never really pulled out of a recession and that an actual depression is not too far fetched. But it doesn’t affect anyone enough to make them revolt in the good ole USA. Arabs have been grabbing guns and rallying to overthrow corrupt and unjust dictators all over the Middle East, but it doesn’t seem to matter to Americans – unless you’re drinking the Tea Party tea (it’s not Koolade anymore). Will this nation revolt? Probably not. The most concerned in this country are the aging hippies who realized saving the planet couldn’t be done in their lifetime so they became Democratic Politicians. The American youth is to hopped up on energy drinks and video games to think about going outside and experiencing the ‘real world’ – especially when they can just sit inside and watch it on television.
It get’s us really wondering if the Mayan calendar and the whole “end of days’ proficiencies isn’t about the giant asteroid hitting the earth or the planets aligning and sucking everyone off the surface of the earth – it’s about our own stubborn stupidity and arrogance that brings our own end. Again, you heard it here first. it’s too late becasue the damage has been done and the wold is listening. If we are willing to let the thought of our own design collapse before our eyes becasue of the unwillingness and elitist arrogance, then we deserve to get what is coming… and what is coming is just more of the same… only worse. So much for the doom and gloomers trying to be positive. The sky is falling and everything sucks – we’re all gonna die!
Well, finally after over 2 years of bending over and kissing the (uh-huh) toes of everyone around him, beloved (and hated) U.S. President Barack Obama got some gonads and is demanding that the Senate pass his jobs plan… or else. Well, or else he’s gonna be a little more forceful than he was the last time he bent over backward for the opposition. Next time is the next time – and I mean it. So how many times can you cry wolf before someone says you’re crying wolf? Our guess is about a hundred billion if you’re the leader of the free world. The Euro-Crisis doesn’t matter becasue they won’t listen and we said months ago that the pissing match over the budget set the bar for just how far you can push someone who is ready to rumble without actually kicking (kissing) ass. Why should the Europeans feel any different than the movers and shakers in Washington? Hold out until someone caves in and if you’re just lucky enough, you’ll get your way eventually. It’s like going home before the game’s over without knowing if your favorite time came back from behind to win the game – chances are probably not, but it’s easier to give up that easy and miss all of the traffic. WUSS!
So now what? The ‘bigger ball’ syndrome works with all male counterparts and some of the female ones too. Does it make a difference or does it just piss off more people and stir the stinking piles of crap that finally started to decay and smell just a bit less revolting? It just makes the stink stink even more! So when the teat party patriots claim victory in the name of God, morality and the “American People” we know they’re only talking about ‘their’ people and not them black folks or chinee or spicks – we’re talkin’ gun toting, monster truck lovin’, Sunday go to meetin’ suit ‘cuz it’s my marryin’ and burryin’ clothes type of redneck mountaineer southern hillbillies. If you think we’re crazy or racist, you must be crazy or racist yourself because it’s true – they just won’t tell you that’s how they really feel. WE haven’t gotten started with the crazy religious bigots who condemn everyone to hell who is against their beliefs – and they sometimes belong to that same redneck mountaineer southern hillbilly mentality. Get yer guns and stock up on the ammo cause if you’re not for us you’re one of them and we don’t like them… them’s them people and we don’t like them – y’all aint from round here is ya?
Alright, we know it isn’t all about the debt ceiling debockle but it has a lot to do with a lot of things. All of the heavyweight players defended the arguing in Washington had nothing to do with he credit rating downgrade from AAA to +, but who cares? The collapse and impending doom of Spain and Italy defaulting on their Euoro counterparts just seems even more likely and the US banks who paid outrageous bonuses just a few short months ago are still holding large amounts of foreclosure notices that they have not delivered. So where do we go from here?
If you listed to either American side of the political isle, each has the uncanny ability to blame the other side for all of the world problems. Neither wants to take the blame for or have the balls to admit they ‘might’ have been the problem. It’s worse than little kids blaming the other for breaking the vase. You know somebody did it, but you can’t pinpoint which of the kids did it so you have to punish both. This seems to be the same thing going on with the economy. No one wants to step up and take responsibility. President Obama claims he didn’t get us into this mess, yet as President, shouldn’t he be the one to say ‘the buck stops here’ and he is the one to make the “Change”? His whole campaign was about change – not it is not about change today or change tomorrow but about change we can have down the road – for the children. STOP! Stop bringing in the children and the bleeding hearts pulling at the stings of emotion. Just Fix the problems and then you won’t have to worry about the children – they can deal with it much easier when they are old enough to deal with it – and if they can’t, how is that our fault other than they are a bunch of idiots what we raised who couldn’t fix their own problems… sound familiar?
So today the world waits to see where the stock market will go and what the world is going to do. We have a suggestion. Sell all of your stocks before they are worth less than a leaf on a tree and take the money and go out and buy stuff. Buy stuff you don’t need, buy stuff you don’t want and buy stuff you’ve always wanted. Take a vacation and get away from it all. Spend the retirement is Las Vegas on a long shot just to see if you can win. If it is that bad, then spending a little (or a Lot) can only do good for the economy. Forget about retirement – you might as well face it now you’re going to have to work until you die of old age or whatever disease you contracted at work – so just get over it. Spend your money now and start enjoying life. If you don’t, there might not be much left for you to enjoy.
It’s all getting pretty crazy. President Obama is calling the flashing yellow light on the debt ceiling to be heeded and to get ready for the red light. WHAT? Michelle Bachmann says all she needs to know she learned in Iowa – she left when she was 12 – what does that say about the presidential hopeful? It seems the rest of the Republican primary hopefuls are laying low (probably on purpose) just to wait and see who sticks their proverbial foot (or other body part) into the mouth of the public first. Just wait… it is coming and if you can’t see it, you’ve got your own head up some other part of the body that rarely gets sunshine.
Let’s face it people: If you learned everything you need to know by the age of 12 – YOU”RE AN IDIOT…
But what about Blogo? Let’s not forget the recent verdict for Rod Blagojevich – possibly 15 years in federal prison (or day camp for the elite). Illinois can’t be left out of the loop. The great state was the ‘selected’ home of our current president (he didn’t thing Hawaii was a good state to declare he was from). Corruption is everywhere – not just in Washington.
Who’s left? Ron Paul? Newt Gingrich? Herman Cain? Jon Huntsman? Maybe some other unknown, undeclared and morally upright citizen? Probably not. Let’s face it, the gene pool of politicians has been scraping the bottom for some time – probably because no one in their right mind would want to be President unless they has alternate (and hidden) motives. We’re not saying that people deep down aren’t really good (they’re not) but it is insane to believe that hash slinging and mud hurling political wordplay isn’t part of a blind sided opinionated arrogance that would lead anyone to ‘serve the people”.
