I stopped the useless and time-wasting practice of comparing turds, it was just eating up too much of my day. A professional politician is a turd,
slimey, nutty, better left in the dark to dissolve rather than shoved into the American living room by other, more clandestine turds who happen to own
broadcast and print media outlets.
You say Reagan, I think Anti-Christ, but that fact doesn't immediately throw me into Jimmy's corner by default.
A Turd is a turd is a turd, and when a professional politician supports a dictator who slaughtered millions, he's not just a turd, he's a
mass-murdering turd. Maybe he didn't want to do, but did anyway. Sensible folks know that's no kind of excuse, you can't even justify minor lies
with that logic, nevermind the murder of millions!
Sure, Carter wasn't out in the countryside executing children with his own hands, but he WAS backing the man responsible for the atrocities.
I'm glad he builds houses for people, that's cool. I wish I had the fame and money and resources to direct public attention towards the causes I
think are imporant. But the thing is, I wouldn't last five minutes in politics because of one simple fact. If Kissinger or some other turd told me
to look the other way while a foreign dictator slaughtered millions, and in fact counseled me to support the mass murder financially, idealogically,
and politically on the international stage, well, I wouldn't go around pretending to be Mr. Nice Guy after that.
If Carter was in agreement with the policies, he's a psychotic turd. If he was acquiescent to the bullies and their blackmail, he's a spineless
turd. If he was unaware of the entire affair, he was a stupid turd.
I happen to agree with you that he's the best of the recent presidents. Then again I cemented that opinion back in the day when I was still in the
habit of comparing turds...
What is such a damn shame is that in a few hundred years nobody will remember the people who suffered and died at the hands of the Khmer Rouge, people
probably won't even remember the Khmer Rouge itself, what will they remember? Jimmy Carter smiling a goofy smile, holding up a hammer next to some
nervous nuclear family.
Your politicians love you. See? Your politicians help you. See? This is the image being piped into the minds of the next generation, despite all
the howling from the right regarding this mythical liberal media. We're being indoctrinated into the cult of selective memory my friend, the entire
country is feeling the crunch.
And if one thing is true in my experience it is this: Short Memory = Repeated Mistakes.
You can see the effects already, the youth of today channel their rebellion, for the most part, into self destruction, corruption, and deception
rather than political activism, and it gets worse every generation.
So the ultimate irony to me is that Jimmy is right! Americans are being misled! By people like Jimmy!
