We Are in So Much More Trouble Than We Think We Are

When Francine Busby lost the CA district 50 election to a cohort of Duke Cunningham’s, it just cemented my belief that the Democratic Party is in serious trouble. First, what she said about voters not needing papers to vote was totally bush league.(No pun intended.) Only a rank amateur would say something like that right before an election. Guys, this isn’t high school class president we’re talking about here. This is… Will the planet survive if we give these guys two more years?

If anyone thinks that Karl Rove, who has been freed up to do what he does best, isn’t listening to everything we say and watching everything we do, you’re sadly mistaken. And you can bet that the swift boat veterans have not taken a single day off since eleven twenty-four (11/2/4) which was as sad a day in our history as any other.

Now Robert Kennedy has taken up the fight against stolen elections in Ohio and Florida in 2000 and 2004. Bless his heart. Anyone who tried to talk about it after the election was deemed a loony conspiracy freak.

Don’t you get it? When you combine the dirtiest politics in the history of this country with the fact that private companies run by Repugs. are handling our elections, you have a recipe for hell on earth.

Was the election in CA tampered with? We won’t know unless someone goes there right now and investigates. I think it’s very possible that Francine did this to herself with careless speech and bad handlers. But if anyone thinks that the Dems have the luxury of playing namby-pamby politics with amateurish results, think again.

These guys are comparing Al Gore to Joseph Goebbels for god’s sake. And the 911 widows are enjoying their husband’s deaths????

I know I sound like a broken record but the Democrats need to get off their asses and start shouting about how this administration compares to the Nazis. If Herr Goebbels does live on, it’s in the body of Herr Karl.

We need to get John Murtha out there to teach some workshops on how to get fired up. And I never thought I’d say this but Joe Biden is one of the only other Dems. that I can see with enough backbone to get in front of the mainstream media and call these guys what they are. Liars who are destroying our country and the world.

We’re watching the greatest experiment in the history of the planet go down in flames and we have front row seats and there are so many doomsday scenarios here that it’s hard to even have any faith that we’ll survive at all.

Another terror attack/martial law.
Another terror attack/we lose NYC or DC.
Secret prisons remain/people start disappearing.

Larry King asked Jon Stewart if he was enjoying Pres. Bush’s misery because it gives him fodder for his show. Stewart looked at him and said, “Are you insane? I have children. This isn’t just bad poll numbers. It’s a Mad Max movie.”

There are so many people who don’t get what’s happening. It’s not being talked about in the media and there are zillions of voters who don’t read what’s on the Internet.

I bought a car yesterday. It’s about a 4-hour procedure so I was chatting with my salesman for hours. He was a nice man who believes that churches should take care of people needs…like food on their tables, heat in their homes and education for their children. He thinks the balance of power is working great but what he doesn’t understand is why we’re not putting more money into alternative forms of energy. (I bought a hybrid so he knew I was a tree hugger from the git.) Nice guy. I know he’ll pull the Republican lever…oops, I mean, hit the “all Republican…all the time” button in November… even though he promised he wouldn’t.

I’m asking the Dems. to be afraid…be very afraid. Because 2 more years of these guys and, god forbid, we will have invaded Iran, our military will be desecrated and nukes will be flying around like frisbees and all the Jon Stewarts, John Murthas and Al Gores of our party will have silently disappeared.

Yea. I’m a dramatic, loony, tree hugging, conspiracy freak and I think we should err on the side of, “It’s the end of the world as we know it,” as opposed to, “Oh, hey. Calm down. Don’t get your panties in a bunch. We’ll live through this like always have.” I wish I could believe that.
