Is this Your Politician?
Rob has an excellent post that will make you think of the world in which we live in. WE TRULY ARE ALL ASSHOLES. Even you dear reader. Governments... bloggers... everyone.
It made me think of who represented the greatest of the assholes, and I came to the realization that it is our politicians. The wires in my brain went haywire as I typed the longest comment I would have ever posted on anyone's blog. When I realized I had my very own blog post, I decided to put my original comment here:
I have to say that it pretty much sucks to be an American this decade. We have caused the loss of so much innocent life in Iraq. As a country, we have forever lost any moral high ground for that invasion and the misery we inflicted on the people of Iraq.
I have been so disenfranchised with the Democrats since they have gained majority control of Congress. I bought into the idea that Pelosi would lead the charge to impeach Bush and Cheney. It never happened. We were told, "Well... they are on their way out come election time anyway." Okay... we have passive aggressive Democrats in charge.
Now it just seems that the Democrats are in bed with the Republicans. Only when we have a Congress controlled by Democrats and a Democrat as President will people see the truth of our "democracy". Nothing will change.
And do you know why? It's because lobbyists run the show. They own and rule our politicians, who are nothing more than whores. When you see a politician, throw them a chapstick and ask them how many lobbyists they had to blow today!
