A running rant about bad television, crappy products, horrible service, mindless politics, corporate and government ineptitude, moronic media, marketing overload, public idiocy, stupid entertainment, etc. Here's what's annoying me today:


There they go again

It's midterm election time, there's a Republican buffoon in the White House, and the country has belately woken up to that fact. So what's a Republican to do but dust off all the old hot-button diversions like flag burning and gay marriage.

As their hero Ronnie would say "There you go again"

Give me a friggin break. With all the problems this country is facing, it would be nice to think that the electorate wasn't as stupid as they were back in '88 when Poppa Bush started all this. But that would no doubt be giving too much credit.

Lee Atwater, rot in hell.

Unless we get Bin Laden, there's no way Bush jr will bond with the public before he leaves. He has been a disappointment.

No, Bush Junior won't, but those bastards will still be able to convince the public that all Democrats are flag burners and the terrorist sympothisers. "Your either with us, or again us"

And Congress is busily whining that they may be losing their right to break the law as they see fit. Hastert and Pelosi trying to protect our noble Congressman from New Orleans. Sheesh.

I've long believed that the Democrats for the just say what they think we want to hear, and then do what they want to do. It's pretty clear that Republicans are exactly the same.

I wish they'd form a single party, because that's what we've got. One party with opposite catch-phrases on their meaningless 'important' issues.

I must apoligize for the excessively harsh Lee Atwater comment at the end of my post, but I was very cranky at the time. It is true that at the end of his life, Atwater repented, and apoligized to many of the victims of his hatchet jobs. But it was too late. His protigees, Karl Rove, and George W. Bush had already learned how well this shit works in American politics. It's even easier for Rove to do what Atwater invented, because he now has right wing talk radio and Fox News to help spread the manure.

Bah. Atwater just learned how to spin from your own Kennedy family, and we got to see it perfected in the Clinton regime. Rove is just a a poor man's copy of James Carville.

Hopefully these tricks like flag burning and gay marriage that they have brought up, surely it won't work again but.....you never nkow. By the way, who has ever in their life seen anyone burn a flag?

It continues to amaze me how people get so riled up over what I think are minor issues. Flag burning?! I think it would be more antipatriotic if they burned the constitution. Gay marriage?! Seems like the only argument they have against it is that it has always been a man and a woman so it must be right. Hell, let's bring back slavery then, it's been going on for thousands of years so it must right also?! I'm much more concerned with jobs being sent overseas and starting wars with religious zealots than flag burning or gay marriage.

Yeah! The USA is facing some big problems! Let's not resolve small ones. Just big ones! Vote for Kennedy's! They've never let us down before! I'm pretty sure that my grandfather got his liquor from the Kennedy's!

Sure, I don't really care about angry aging hippies burning flags, but at least it takes time away from Congress' trying make up new taxes on us. We've got enough laws. Let's not make new ones. This hippie-flag thing is just a means to an ends (of not creating new laws)

I'm preaching to a deaf choir here, aren't I.

Blogagog is the typical conservative: cheap bastard who pines away for the 'good old days' that never really were. Those flag burning aging hippies truely care about what it means to be American. Conservatives need to wake up and gt a clue.

If you're for flag burning, you're unamerican! If you're against the Iraq war, you're unamerican! If you don't believe in the war against terror, you're unamerican! IF you don't believe in prayer in schools, you're unamerican! If you don't believe that Islam is fascism, you're unamerican! When did these neocon bozos highjack what it means to be american from us?! They have been listening to their midwestern polls way too seriously. Of course, if you've ever been 'polled', you can imagine how painful that must be!
