From an observer’s point of view, it looks pretty good

I have to say that over the past few weeks I have been silently observing through the news wires, watching in not-so-subtle interest as the States appears to be righting (no pun intended) itself. Allow me to list some of the points that I have been following:
1. Apparently there was some crazy earthquake activity down in the Carribean recently that took a country that was as corrupt as the day is long, or much like here in Nigeria, and basically wiped out civilization as they knew it, and Obama has fucked himself sideways in the way that he has handled the aid action. Yeah, a shitload of people died (notable fact: more died in the Tsunami of 2004. Just thought you would like to know that) but the eyes are on a certain President and his direction when it comes to aiding these people. A couple of articles, one from Slate even!, had the audacity of hope to rake how the operations down there are being handled. I would have said “co-ordinated”, but that would be a bold faced lie to call it such.
From what can be gathered on the actions of the military forces down there the situation is being treated much like some of the operations in Iraq and not like some of the various other ones we have performed in supplying aid (notable fact: whereas Obama has pledged 100 mil for this assist move, Bush pledged 350 mil for the tsunami aid and was referred to as being “miserly”)… and Obama is being raked through the COALS over this. No blame to the military, no blame to the evil mind-controlling conservatives…. the target has been painted solely on Teh One.
This leads into my next point….
2. In one of the bluest states in the Union a conservative was elected by a pretty decent margin to Congress. I mean come on, this is one of those states that you just immediately assume is so dyed-in-the-wool blue that it is almost black in color. They have universal health care and an enormous tax burden on the upper middle class for Christ’s sake!!! You had a Dem Attorney General that was running who had the support of the Kennedys, the DNC, and even the fucking President, and they STILL could not pull off a win for themselves!!! Also, when beaten by to be honest a pretty likable guy that had my support from the word “vet”, all they can do is blame the campaign and NOT that they have so completely blown it with their base that they couldn’t even win Kennedy’s old seat! What the fuck is next, Chicago going to elect a white mayor?!?!?!?
-Cats and dogs, living together… MASS HYSTERIA.
Oh, and can’t forget…
3. The death throes of the Universal Health Bill can be heard all the way to fucking MARS, and the Martians are trying to get some sleep so KILL IT WITH FIRE ALREADY AND GET IT OVER WITH. Out of all of the data that I have viewed on the recent opinions on this bill is that even the dems are saying that it was too far-reaching in what they were attempting to do, and that through the very act of trying to ram this floating pile whale feces into law was GASP! not actually a good idea! Who’d of thunk it?
Oh, wait, EVERY SINGLE POLL THAT WAS EVER TAKEN REGARDING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE’S OPINION OF IT.
-Apparently the enlightened few dems who actually are paying attention to their constituents are also realizing that oh shit, this year is an election year and that they might actually not be re-elected due to their support of a bill that even a dog would piss on. I was always under the impression that representatives did just that, represent their specific electorate, but who am I to assume some simple shit like that? Hopefully the Mass. election was a strong wake-up call for these people to actually start doing the job that they were elected to do…. Wait. No, I actually hope that these numpties don’t listen and self-destruct. I hope that they actually are elected out of office by such a large margin that they are embarrassed to even call themselves politicians, have to go into protective custody and disappear off of the face of the planet.
In short…. This is a good time to be an American, because the people are speaking loud and clear and the politicians that don’t listen are going to take it in the ass.
-With a cactus dick.
-And no lube this time.
