wednesdays rant: idiots

i had the greatest of intentions.
really i did.
i sat down hoping that despite the news
some touchy ~ feely ~
life is beautiful ~granola crunchy prose
was going to salsa dance off my fingers and onto the screen.

as it turns out
my mind had other things...on it's mind. 




i mean....really people
must we go through this again?
and if we have to suffer birds drenched in gobs of oozy oil
and beaches slick with gunk
should the captain really be released on bail???

and what about all this greed?
for a significant chunk of the american population,
life is not getting better and hasn't been for a long time.
the economic crisis is even crushing the hopes of the younger generation.
astonishingly, people in their early twenties
face an unemployment rate similar to high-school dropouts.
and salaries...best to not even start ...

and it just keeps rolling downhill

i have been fighting to hang on to
any shread of sanity about your party.
i have listened to your debates.
i have been open minded.
i have even at times, defended you.
but it seems you are going to great lengths
to make it impossible for any rational person to find 
positive in your defense.

i mean first of all
there's palin and bachmann
no to the jobs bill?
no to soldiers who want to give their life for this country?
no to normal and reasonable taxes on millionaires?

and my personal favorite
rep. ritch workman (r) of fl who has decided that
the best use of his time is to not working with homeless
or helping create jobs in his community
but throwing his time, effort and resources into repealing

we definitely have an existential country wide
question on our hands....
it's time to figure out who do we want to be
what are we going to do about
all the idiots?

 and she's off
her soapbox that is
