It Ain't Gonna Happen

Where are we now?

Physically, I know where I am, but, truly, where are we?

First, there was one presidential candidate that wasn’t afraid to say what’s what.  John Edwards was an “ambulance chaser” during his legal career, but someone has to chase them and find out what happened to the main passengers.  He became wealthy chasing ambulances.

I wasn’t happy with any of the candidates, both on the Neanderthal side or on The Democratic Party side.

Believe it or not, I had this feeling that, although Rudy was running as a rough and tough “9/11” parrot, he may have become somewhat liberal if elected.  After all, don’t we say that Bill Clinton ran on a Progressive platform and, once elected, became the best Republican president we ever had?

McCain, too, has always been a maverick in The Neanderthal Party.  When he says “America shouldn’t torture”, he means America shouldn’t torture.  Whose to say that he won’t take a turn for the liberal if he’s elected?

I listen to a very brilliant radio host almost every day.  Thom Hartmann has taught me a great deal.  He knows history.  One of his callers said that his IQ grows 2 points every time he listens to Hartmann.  I don’t think that can happen, but I understand the statement.

Hartmann is also a very courageous radio host.  He invites conservatives to be on his show.  He debates them.  He says that they’re mostly Libertarians as Neanderthals won’t appear on his show.

Hartmann has said a few things that have upset me lately, however.

It appears that most conservative radio hosts hold that all “Republicans good, all Democrats bad” (followed by a Neanderthal grunt).

One reason I don’t like to listen to Randi Rhodes is that she takes the same approach regarding Democrats.  “All Democrats good, all Republicans bad.”  And she brings up proof of this by saying that all Neanderthals vote no on all important issues (where “yes” would be the populist vote).  I don’t hear her say that all Democrats vote yes on all important issues.  She at least goes that far.

I get tired of her Lucille Ball type of yelling about how Democrats are good and Republicans are bad.

As I’ve written previously, they all drink from the same trough. 

One example I can give about the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party is Kucinich’s support of John Kerry once Kerry became the nominee of the other leg of The Corporacracy.

If you remember, one of the first things Kerry said he would do if he became president was to immediately introduce 30,000 more troops into Iraq in order to “win the peace”.   And let us not forget the fact that Kerry is a full steam ahead “free trade” advocate.  After all, he’s part of the class that benefits from such tyranny.

Using war to win the peace!  Isn’t that what we’re supposed to be doing now?
