Lol, I didn't expect the president to do anything.
I'm thoroughly removed from the notion that the government is out to do well by their citizens.
Though, I must say, for someone to come out and claim responsibility for the management of a disaster and then go off and handle unrelated issues like
talking about which basketball team they believe will win ... I'unno, seems pretty iffy.
Seems like an agenda. An agenda that makes people look toward government during times of crisis, and when the government proves to be ineffective,
they make grabs for legislation that would grant them even more power. And these grabs are made with majority consent.
I'm entirely against this Capitalistic cluster**** of corporate interests.
It just seems that we, who expect them to do something, are basically clearing the path for them. We're hinting towards the need for them to have
more reach, because, they are in fact incapable with their present reach.
I think we should be shifting towards a better form of "governance". We should all be getting out of this ridiculous Red vs Blue mindset. Look where
we are now? "Damn, I picked the wrong guy. Now the Gulf is broken."
Lol, we've got presidential elections down to a Las Vegas betting table.
Am I gonna win big money? Am I gonna lose big money? Are we gonna get hit with a massive disaster and have poor response? Am I going to get better
management? Am I gonna lose more rights? Am I going to gain better treatment?
Potential candidates are basically one of the greatest examples of capitalism.
They sell themselves to you with sweet talk.
"Wanna shed those pounds?"
They butter you up, addressing your weaknesses and interests.
"Tired of being fat and lonely?"
Then they psyche you up, promising all sorts of things they don't mean.
"Well, I have the solution right here. You'll shed pounds in your sleep."
And you'll run to the ballot boxes and vote, "This guy makes a persuasive argument."
Then, once you make the purchase and get your product.
"What the ****? This is nothing but placebos and skittles!"
What? You didn't get what you asked for? Give it some time, refer to any manual or directions on the bottle.
"I assure you, sir, those are highly sophisticated medicinal agents."
Just like with anything else. You're basically gambling. They're allowed to lie to you. They're allowed to leave out important information.
They're allowed to manipulate their own value by inflating their worth with all sorts of claims.
You guys (the ones that bothered to adhere to the system and voted) made an excellent purchase.
(P.S. No refunds.)
