As most here, I read lots more then I post. And you ……… in the back.
I heard you say that!
But I’ve been really surprised. Like blown away.
One string’s about how 80% of the world’s history professors, or something like that, were polled and say GW’s like the internet Google search
results of his name says it is: A Miserable failure!
Well, we know what to expect from a finding like that………
The mild ones take the form “What poll? No one ever asked me!” and then escalate from there.
Well as I read through the reactions to the findings of this most important, front page news story, NOT I was struck with just how mild the replies
“Odd!” I mused. “
Just who posts to this BBS?” I thought.
When I had completed reading all the posts I realized that not one person (Bush supporters) disputed or vigorously challenged the polls findings. The
Bush folks made technical arguments ie sample size, question formation, what phase the moon was in……
I mean really even to argue about a poll that has as much merit as looking the results of the question posted to 50 of the world’s most prominent
Proctologists, “What do you see?” Really now!
I posted an observation to that effect and moseyed on down the line so to speak….. And forgot all about this anomaly.
But today, I was blown away (really this time) as I was zipping through a sting -looking for something- when my eye caught glimpse of something really
I took my finger off the mouse key a scrolled back and sure there it was………
Folks arguing Bush-Kerry pro-con, who of the two could ruin this country faster?
Friends, there’s something wrong with this picture here. I don’t ever remember things being so screwed up, with folks tearing at one another, and
acting so poorly. And doing so like they had god on their side and they had some holy duty to maim one’s brother.
Folk have gone plumb crazy. We got the Democrats and the Republicans; the liberals and the Conservatives (And now the neo-cons, god help us); the
Blues and the Reds………… when did we all stop being just plain Americans? And where did all this finger pointing and hate come from? I must not have
been paying attention, ‘cause one day I woke up and everyone hated each other. Or the TV told me they did.
I got a bit hopeful after 9/11. Sure that was terrible, but folks were civil, cared for one another and did good things for each other. The good
people, who we really are, shined. We were all just Americans. We were one people once again. Boy was that a great feeling. Remember?
Well I must of went to sleep again. Woke up and things are no better then before. What the hell happened? Please - tell me? It’s back to the
SOS-different day thing again. I don’t understand it! And it makes no good sense no matter how I look at it. But now it’s a little different………..
Now we don’t just hate each other. That’s not good enough. We hate the whole damn world; and they hate us. And please don’t mention those Arab
folks…………. We have some of us talking about what form of genocide would be more appropriate; which method would be more cost effective.
We get in a damned war where are reasons are de jure! Which one is it today?
And they tell us we’re there so the terrorists attack us not here. And say we should be happy with our leadership because we haven’t (implied they
stopped) had any attacks since 9/11 here.
Well, with the terrorist so damned busy killing our boys in Iraq maybe they’ve been just too busy. Anybody think of that.
But rest easy our President has told us if he knew 9/11 was going to happen; he sure would have done something to have stopped it. Be assured, the
“brightest bulb” of our leadership’s got the problem of a future attack under control. Be assured, if he knows its coming he’ll sure do something. Bet
ya Clinton don’t think like that!
Ahhhhhhh……. It don’t matter. Mounts to just a hill of beans.
We don’t count. We just work our butt of to make a buck and worry. Worry about the wife being so tired; it the school’s doing right by the kids; and
where we’ll get the money for the VISA bill……… and from time to time the terrorists.
We’re just the no-count ‘little people’ who pay the bills and are told how them others are so bad and we have to hate and fight them before they.(Fill
in The Blank) reason. Hell no we ain’t American no more: we’re liberals or conservatives; Dems of ‘pubes: Blues or Reds; fly-overs or coasters.
Have we all gone crazy? What happened? Where did America and its people go? I’m too damn tired to figure it out.
