More political BS from yours truly [Sep. 25th, 2008|02:15 pm]

I haven't given up on this community!

I've noticed gas prices going down quite a bit recently; it seems like it was only a couple of months ago it was a dollar more. After marveling at the gas prices for a moment, I remembered something! Four years ago, would you believe THE SAME THING HAPPENED? But what was going on four years ago? The Olympics? Er... maybe, but I don't care... OH RIGHT! It was the election! I am forced to listen to Rush Limbaugh at work on occasion, and Douche Limbaugh was making a point about (mind you, this was before the big oopsie on Wall Street) Obama's claim the economy was not doing well was a load. "Look at the falling gas prices!" he shouted, no doubt spraying his microphone in a fine layer of foul smelling saliva. It was actually at that moment I remembered how during the last election gas prices fell. I think it's bribery. I think it's a way of making people think everything is okay, so they continue to vote for the same old douche bags, after all, the only time the average American will give the slightest shit about something is if it affects them directly, and what other way to do that than to lower gas prices. It's a mixture of feelings. It's great that gas prices have come down to something a bit more tolerable... but it's a bribe, and sadly, it will trick people into thinking the way things are going is just fabulous.

By the way, this 700 BILLION dollar bail out... That's going to come from tax payer money if I'm not mistaken, and while I don't know enough to take a side on the issue of the current situation, I did some quick and sloppy math and I believe that it will cost every single man, woman, and child in the United States $2334 to pay to take care of the major fuck ups that occurred within those businesses. McCain suspended his campaign, blowing off a debate, to "go work on the problem". Is John McCain incapable of subtly in his political maneuvers? He's so fucking obvious in everything he does. Also, I think it's funny how he constantly says Obama has no plan for... well... anything, and debate would certainly prove or discredit that claim to some extent... but now he's not going to be in that scheduled debate...

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that McCain (giggle... chuckle...) CUT... and... RAN from Obama.

Obama and Me

I probably heard about Barack Obama for the first time when he was running for senator of Illinois. The incumbent, Jack Ryan, had to resign because of a sex scandal of sorts. Jack Ryan is the ex-husband of Jeri Ryan, who played 7 of 9 on Star Trek Voyager. In their divorce, all this kinky shit came up, something about sex shows and swinger parties. Obama wasn't expected to win up until Jack was out of the picture. In place of Jack Ryan, the Republican party tapped Alan Keyes, which I think was the GOP going "SEE?! WE GOT A BLACK GUY, TOO! YOU CAN STILL VOTE FOR US!" Suffice to say, Obama won in a landslide.

That same year, he gave a speech at some sort of Democratic assembly for John Kerry. I heard a lot of buzz about his speech (In hind sight, I can imagine why.), but I know he had this big message about working together. He was even on a magazine and the caption was "seeing purple". This irritated me to no end and I wasn't impressed with Obama because at the time, the Republicans had control of EVERYTHING. What's the point of trying to "see purple" when everything is in a deep shade of red? See blue, dammit! That way, they can mix together and make purple, not magenta.

Fast forward to 2006, and we saw all these people lining up to be the Democratic nominee. Clinton?! Biden?! Edwards?! These people had no chance of winning me over. And then there was Obama. I wasn't really excited about him, but I decided I wanted him for the Democratic candidate for the race to the White House. In light of everything that was going on, I thought his message of hope and change were really inspiring, and he started to really grow on me. Because of the last election, I was fearing the guy I wanted to win would lose, and it was pretty close there for a while, but sure enough, Obama pulled through and went on to defeat McCain 2 to 1 in the electoral college.

So, I may not have been a fan from the start, but seeing as I live in a very conservative neighborhood, I didn't have much of a chance to just "go along with" whatever other people were saying. I saw Obama on TV and heard the things he had to say, and I liked what I heard a heck of a lot more than what was coming from the other candidates.

I think some people regard Obama as a "fad", which is really frustrating because I do see why people say that, but on the other hand, so was Ron Paul and Sarah Palin, and obviously, neither of those two are going to Washington this January. A lot of people, I believe, are tired of the way things are. McCain can call himself a maverick until he's blue in the face, but he can't deny the fact that last year, he said he voted with the President "95 percent of the time". That's not change. McCain also flat out failed to clarify to voters why he was a maverick and how he could bring change when he supports the way things are so much.

Join the Ron Paul revolution?! Are you fucking kidding me? I think people were just elated over this "revolution", but was there anything to it. Americans are way to lazy to stage a real revolution, for starters. He spoke of eliminating the income tax, which made people happy, but shouldn't people wonder where governments will get funding for roads, schools, police, firefighters, etc. etc.? The answer probably lies in a huge ass sales tax, but I can't say for sure.

Sarah Palin... Ha... See the last entry under "McCain's Choice".

I think there's substance to Obama. I believe the policies of the Bush adminstration have SERIOUSLY fucked things up. Obama right now is reviewing all of Bush's executive orders, and is probably going to undo or reverse a lot of those decisions. This includes doing damage control over this fiasco of a foreign policy that Bush will go down in history for having. "You're either with us or against us!" he declared. Now everyone hates us. One of Obama's key points was working to get our international respect back. Hopefully, the past eight years haven't done permanent damage with relations with our "close" allies. Oh, I'm certain with Obama, unlike McCain, we can avoid getting into more senseless conflicts. I can go on about why I picked Obama, but I'm not going to. I've rambled on too long anyway.
