I am compelled to respond to my rare friend (we'll call him Rock) who most recently rebels with: "We don't need no stinkin' Republicans! Not with 'Liberal' NDAA Dickie Durbin running around doing their dirty work for them." -- in reference to Durbin's accommodations with Republicans to take a "realistic" approach to cutting the social safety net, including Medicare and "entitlements."
I understand Durbin, and I understand Obama and all such blatant shyster ilk. That's easy.
I even understand Republicans. All such rapaciously self-serving miscreants are clearly apparent to anyone with a scintilla of intelligence and social conscience. The Repukes don't pussyfoot around; they take honest pride however vicious in their dedication to self-aggrandizement, and boast of such. (See Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged")
But what beggars my comprehension are the Democrats who support the misrepresentation of their own best interests and the perpetration of crimes against humanity. Test it out: Look at America's rank in medical care of its own people among the family of nations (#37) and education about the same. Ask any Afghan mother whose infant has been mutilated by a Drone, or any Gazan wife whose husband has been slaughtered by an American F-16 piloted by "our closest ally" if she appreciates any difference between Obama and Bush? Check that chart of the Distribution of Wealth showing 400 American individuals with more than the total of 150 million other citizens of this once "world's oldest democracy."
And that is what constitutes the Dems' "lesser-evil" proposition. Where are the minds of the partisan zombies? Right now they're out hawking tickets to the re-election balls. After which they'll be frequenting their cozy precinct "meet-ups" telling each other how much worse everything would be had Romney won, and then in two years preparing to elect their congressman to further negotiations on "realistic reductions in the social safety net" and to support "our closest" war criminals whilst anyone with a speck of intelligence and a smidgeon of a social conscience or human decency recoils in disbelief.
But, Hey Rock: I'll stop now, with you being a rare American who already knows all this, and the grand majority of proud Democrats, Republicans and partisan zombies who really don't or who are incapable of giving a rat's ass.
...Rare regards, Rafe
Leaving behind a treacherous government now addicted to perpetual war, its limitlessly greedy and power-lusting masters, as well as the retarded albeit smirky Republicans and their evermore clonish Democrat colleagues, a braindead electorate (more...
