Well, there’s a loaded question and I’m sure the neocons will come running out of the woodwork today to tell us how to create jobs, how to fix our health care system, and how to be a good citizen now that Scott Brown is walking on water as you read this sentence! Seriously, all I hear is bitching, complaining, and whining from the right wingers. Do they have any answers? Not that I can see. Let me know if you hear of one. Maybe if we all rubbed and stroked Scott Brown’s business suit the answers would come easily and our nation will be saved? Huh. Maybe.

Here’s a copy and paste that is going around Facebook that ended up on mine yesterday after a friend posted it to her Facebook page:
Shame on you America: the only country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed without eating, elderly going without needed meds, and mentally ill without treatment – yet we have a benefit for the people of Haiti on 12 TV stations. 99% of people won’t have the guts to copy and repost this
It truly pissed me off! I created two posts after I saw it…
“I laugh when I read that some are against helping the Haitians when we Americans don’t help each other out, but if you mention a public insurance option for Americans to purchase with no preexisting conditions, these same people scream “no way!”. WTH….”
“Should we care that there were 5-6,000 Americans killed in the Haitian earthquake or should we just lump them in with those “dirty Haitians” who don’t deserve our help in getting their loved ones out of the rubble and much needed water and food?”
Some Americans truly are stupid and it makes me sad that a couple of them are my friends on Facebook! *shudder* Anyway, I spent some time last night pointing out to the dummies that Haiti is extremely poor, their government is pretty much gone, and we as Americans must help them. Hell, it was the Haitian government that asked us to bring our military down there because they need us! The friend who originally posted her diatribe ended up doing a post apologizing to all she offended. Damn straight she did! I honestly don’t understand where the heart of Americans have gone. Apparently “Americans are barbarians” has stuck with them after 8 years of George Bush! Gees.
Our nation had 8 years of blatant fascism under George Bush and we’ve had a one year reprieve thanks to President Obama being in the White House, but what is most disturbing is an Animal Farm Revolution is underway again where the animals are demanding to go back to those 8 years of fascism because they believe it’s better and they’ll be happier! How many times do we have to tell the imbeciles of our country that whenever we have a republican president in the White House our nation goes into a recession, our money ends up missing in huge clumps, and we end up miserable and suffering? Huh? How many times? Give me a Democratic president who is bonking an intern in the Oval Office while creating 22 million jobs or a president who knows that one false move to the financial sector could cause Wall Street to retaliate could hurt us and that it’s going to take years to fix the messes George Bush wrought on our nation (slow progress is better than no progress!)! I’ll take those two any day of the week but one day of a fascist right wing president running our nation? No thanks!!!!!!!! A detriment to the sanctity of our nation!!!!!!
How was your weekend? We’re recovering from head colds in my house.
