It's Not Apathy

In an interview, meanwhile, Obama admonished Democratic voters, saying it would be "inexcusable" and "irresponsible" for unenthusiastic Democrats to sit out the midterm elections because the consequences could be a squandered agenda for years.

"People need to shake off this lethargy. People need to buck up," Obama told Rolling Stone magazine in an interview being published Friday. Making change happen is hard, he said, and "if people now want to take their ball and go home, that tells me folks weren't serious in the first place."

Ok... so it's that woman who's sick of defending you's fault for not continuing to give you the right to continue to give us the things we voted against - i guess this would be the audacity of hope...

How laughable that you'd accuse me of not being that serious about change.

How to treat your friends

I mean - it's not like our support for them over the years has anything to do with our current situation in the world, right?

I should make a FFFFUUUU comic of this...

but i'll use my words instead.

Tonight, Christine O'donnell won the republican nomination for Joe Biden's senate seat. This is a teaparty candidate, backed by Nutbag in Chief Palin, who has stated that masturbation is on par with adultery. I wont try to get into the rest of her platform - economics? social issues? what possible logical common ground could she share with me given her stance on masturbation.

What does it mean when someone like her can win - against the republican machine? Well, we've seen some of it with McCains campaign for his senate seat. All those moderate stances on things like the border or immigration or the economy? out the window... he had to move waaaaaay off to the right to fend off the nutters.

So not only do the pubs move right, but sometimes they still lose.

This encourages them to go way over the deep end to the right - they cant really go wrong politically with this behavior, since they can label anyone opposing them a hitler-loving communist... *cue Beck's tears*...
Seriously - every election cycle is one where the pubs move substantially right, and the dems are dragged 3/4 of the same distance the same direction.

The democratic party, as it stands today as embodied by our current president dick, is further right than the policies of GHW Bush. You expect me to vote for that? Why. Why should I. Sure - the Death Party loves it... but they love the Booze for Coats homeless program. This is a president that wanted to allow Whale harvesting. Imagine G HW Bush trying to float that one for a moment...

So whereas some look up and see the pubs being self-destructive by electing people who're deranged... i see it as more of a national problem.

On Aug 29th

I called the president a dick.

Good thing I have my passport -- he's much worse than a dick.

Really? A teenager calls the president a prick by email and that results in an official visit from agents of authority and a ban on international travel? 70% of Europe thought Bush was a dick - can we ban them too?

It's ok to call him kenyan, to compare him to hitler, to paint him up as the joker and swing knotted ropes at rallies in front of the whitehouse... but you better not mention the president's penis.

I wonder if he's got 'issues' there...

Since it's 9/12

In the mean time... "The terrorist threat that led to the declaration on September 14, 2001, of a national emergency continues. For this reason, I have determined that it is necessary to continue in effect after September 14, 2010, the national emergency with respect to the terrorist threat."

We will always be at war with east asia wont we...

Today In The Garden

I found a pretty garden spider.

My mother is not amused.

Wednesday, September 01, 2010


my mother is a reader...
she reads and reads and reads...
brought boxes of books to read while she's stuck in my forest

sticking out the top of one box was a book
that brought a flashback
and before i could consciously stop myself i found myself wailing in horror and disgust.

"He moved forward delicately, his right hand outstretched. The crucible began to settle - collapse, the silver was running over the top of the furnace like spilled milk. Johnny jumped toward it, his right hand still outstretched. Something happened, he never knew exactly what. His feet went out from under him. His hand came down on the top of the furnace."

When Glenn starts the book burning - this better be at the top of the list.
