You may have noticed that I havenâ€™t posted anything for eleven days, as what I write here makes any difference in the big picture, or even the smallest of pictures, for that matter. The reason is that I was and still am in a state of mourning over the November 6th beginning of the end of the Republic. I admit that I was profoundly wrong about how the election would turn out. The polls be damned: I was convinced that the electorate has not become so screwed up that it would give another four years to a guy whose record, by any reasonable measure, has been one of colossal failure.
Yes, I was indeed wrong. I never thought that Americans would vote for this country to become a European-style socialist/welfare state, but thatâ€™s exactly what happened. Hell, today I read that, according to some damned exit poll, that, four years into the Obama administration, voters still blamed George Bush for the lousy economy (Well played, Barry), and, even worse, â€œyoung peopleâ€ preferred socialism over capitalism, demonstrating that they could use a bit more time in the library (Well played, public education system).
To those who voted for the end of the Republic, please do me a favor. When you see businesses shrink or close and the economy crater under the weight of a gargantuan federal government spending truckloads of money it doesnâ€™t have on
â€œinvestmentsâ€ bullshit programs to buy votes, when you see just how expensive â€œfreeâ€ healthcare is, or when The One bypasses Congress and issues Executive Orders you may not like, donâ€™t complain to me. If you do, I will tell you to talk to the hand. Or, maybe talk to the middle finger.
As for the future of this blog, I havenâ€™t decided. There are already numerous blogs that tackle politics, and they do it better than I can. Besides, I am fresh out of patience for maroons who would eventually show up in comments screaming â€œHater! Racist!â€ Maybe some political satire? Truth is, I donâ€™t find anything about the current state of affairs to be even remotely funny.
Hey, maybe Iâ€™ll post pictures of my cats, except that I donâ€™t have any cats.
Iâ€™ll have to think on it all.
