Rant Rant

That's all I can really do

I ran for public office once. It was a revealing experience, one I would not trade. Even though it cost me dearly in terms of lost-revenue and personal relationships. I got to see how things really work. And it was scary. Anyway, these pages are some of my pet peeves with "Da' Gubamint." We in The United states of America have the best deal going, but it is not written down anywhere that matters that we will be able to go on indefinately having a Great Country. The only way that will happen is if people take the time to slog through the Bull Shit that passes for Campaign Advertising and Facts About The Candidates and get down to something that everyone seems to agree on. Lots of times that's nothing. Sadly.

Politicians like to draw distinctions between themselves and their opponents. They like "wedge issues". That is, an issue that will clearly and distinctly differentiate them from the other and that voters give a rats behind about. THAT is why we seem to be so clearly Red and Blue (as contrasted to Red, White and Blue). These Sociopaths who are so focused on Money and Power that they will subject themselves to the abuse of the American Political System want you to think your neighbor is a heathen. They want you to think that he is a little nazi, or a raving liberal, or a heartless mogul, or a pagan. All depending on which party they vote for.

I know otherwise good people who think that Most Democrats Are Bad. Bleeding Heart Liberals who want nothing more than to tax the country into ruin and run up huge deficits. And I know equally good people who think that Most Republicans are Bad. Evil Businessmen who want to rape the Wealth of America, exploit helpless workers, and make America a place of gray workers marching to their factories. Oddly enough, I seem to know lots of Good People of both persuasions.

This page is dedicated to letting me rant and let off steam. If you want to email me and tell me how glad you are that I took the time to share this, feel free. If you want to email me and tell me how you disagree with me in a civil and calm tone, backed by facts and references, feel free. If you want to email me and tell me how bad some politician from the other party is because you read it in some hatchet-rag, or heard it on some f-ing Radio Talk Show don't even bother, it's a waste of your time. I think so little of most all of those Hatchet Rags and Radio Talk Shows that I pretty much distrust and am wary of anyone who I know actually thinks they are getting useful information from them. If you take the time to actually CHECK THE FACTS (if that is possible) behind what they are saying, it is my opinion that in many cases you will find that their entire rant is built on a bad assumption, or faulty facts, or similar. In other words, Politics As Usual! Ha! Since Time Immemorial!

Check out the Hatchet Job on Andrew Jackson . Worked old Andy and his wife over good.

Anyway, Like Me, Hate Me, Whatever. I don't care, I wrote this stuff for ME. ME, ME, ME, It's All about ME! Ha!

Did you know that fully 80% of the U.S. population represents themselves as Christian? And I'm sure you know the Second Greatest Commandment - "Do To Others That Which You Would Wish Done To You". So, what do you think American Politics would be like if all the Bible Thumping Politicians from boths sides of the aisle REALLY bought into the message, i.e., "Do To Others That Which You Would Wish Done To You". Well, for one thing, the Advertising Industry Executives would probably drive smaller cars and have uglier wives.

Later, I gotta' go make some money.

Our 43rd President - George W. Bush

You showed up here uninvited, or at least with just a suggestion that you visit, so if some of this stuff is total crap don't get your panties in a wad. Take some responsibility for your own actions. If everybody did that The United States of America would be a totally different country. And Lawyers would also drive smaller cars and have uglier wives.

I wrote this piece in 1992 I think (I didn't date it - why would I?), I reread it recently. Much to my dismay it is still perfectly valid, although thank goodness right at this moment (early 2007 - see, I learn, just not too quickly) the trend does seem to be toward the middle. I hope you enjoy it, but if you don't that won't bother me at all, so don't write me and tell me about it. I will just think less of you. If you have constructive suggestions, however, feel free to share them with me, or if you have reasoned and documented arguments, I'd relish that.

What is a Radical Moderate anyway?

I don't think the most important issue in the Defense of The American Way of Life is Al Qaeda. I think it is our current Head-In-The-Sand attitude regarding Immigration. Specifically, Illegal Immigration.

I've collected some other peoples thoughts on the matter, because my own thoughts contain so many foul words that I didn't want to get in trouble with my middle-class female editor - when she gets mad she uses foul language on me.

Immigration Stuff

I got the background in Dubya's link as dark as I could and still see it - that's how I see him, as dark for America.
I respect the Office of The President of The United States of America, I do not respect the current occupant thereof.
Help Me! I've fallen and I can't reach my beer!
