I came across this article today and it expresses my frustration with STUPID PEOPLE. Let’s put it in perspective for the umpteenth time. There is this very small country. It got hit by a very big earthquake. The government and everything anyone counted on as normal got decimated in a few seconds. Think about what the teabaggers would do if this happened in your small part of the world.
Why the term looters is used so casually. Someone find me a reference where whites — no I’ll take it further — non BLACKS were ever accused of LOOTING.
I want my News Hour back. Tonight was disgusting.
And now just about anyone with the bucks can buy themselves an election here in the good ole U S of A and people like Chris Baker — who has a radio show and thinks one day he could be king — is all for it. Does he not know that foreign corporations are here in the U.S.? Would he welcome this decision if he knew anything about the decision he praised? He clearly doesn’t have the foggiest about what the ramifications are, but because it is a REPUBLICAN win, he’s all for it. And the clown will deny he is a republican, just like he denies living in another city. LIAR LIES. Big news.
So much for the small contributors. Like me. I’m not really inclined to donate to anyone at this point. Just let the corporations do it. I will limit my life to stay out of their way. Here in Texas, it is almost scary to think about. Living in an old neighborhood makes it somewhat easier to take, but the Teabaggers are taking over the suburbs and we will have a Haiti or Somalia before you know it. Every man for himself!!!! Here’s Michael Berry almost crying over a Joe Horn autograph (!) for good measure.
Just let me do my job and take care of my house and pets. I so desperately want this to be a better country, but that doesn’t seem possible now. Too many people are just out for themselves. I will take care of myself and my neighbor. I will try to portray this as a good country to my students, but that will conflict with what they experience outside of class.
And on a night like this — mild weather (no screaming about GLOBAL WARMING today, though it is January and the temps are around 70 F) — I can see living out my years here at this house with a garden in back and in front, with the pups and kittens. That’s all that really matters, no?
Politics has become absurd today. I will take a bow out.
