Random Barking


Mongo Went Forward Into The Future, Filled With Teh Hope™,
But Ended Up Experiencing Politics As Usual, Again

Wouldn't it be funny if the Rethugs block every attempt by the Democrats to do anything to solve our economic crisis (if such a thing is even possible), so that people will become more frightened -- and scared people vote more conservatively?

Then, after those scared people vote more Rethugs in this November, and we have a Congress controlled again by the party of More and Jesus™ -- those same Rethugs pass some of the same legislation the Democrats proposed... only, the Right will trumpet through its media that these are new ideas, and that they saved the day?

Only, a lot of people are going to get hurt in the year or so before that happens. And, when the Thugs go after Social Security and the Health Care Bill, and the NEA and NEH and Public Television as all too immoral and expensive, more of us will get hurt.

And then President Terry will get to pick another few Supreme Court toadies and reverse Roe v. Wade; President Mitchell will make sure the DOMA is enshrined as a Constitutional Amendment; and President Gingrich will raise money -- some of which will even go towards building a shrine to Ronald Reagan in his beloved California hills. Oh, and we'll bomb Iran, too.

In 2008, I thought we'd gotten rid of these abschaum-saugen Schweinehunde for a while (Perhaps this is what they mean by Karmic Redemption). Well; you get the government you deserve after exporting death and greed to the rest of the planet vote for, I guess.

But, all these are just random thoughts. President Barbour and President Boner say they're really good people, and that of course they care, so there you go.
