A little more insight into what drives my horrific rage at this system.
Obama just proved another traitor to truth, oulawing the ability of people to sue the government. Basically, they can squash any suit and keep it quite, if it is based on national security secrets. Well, I am one big fucking national secret. Everyone who is silent about this is part of the problem, in my mind. Sure changed my perception of a lot of people, including jessie jackson... I like him, and am puzzled as to why even people like that play along with this travesty? Am I really so dangerous? Would I have been had you not treated me like scum, beating me like you do your dam dogs and kids and the minds of your constituents?
What the hell are you doing Obama? Are you only there to further destroy people's dreams for this country? Were they all just pipedreams of peace all along? I have lived in the mind-set where politics is a very deadly joke. They pretended to do one thing, did another. A huge shell game where the huge corporations did what they wanted, and got laws passed to protect their predatory rights. Bill Gates destroyed people all the way to the top. That is wrong. No one stopped him... wow, a monopoly on software, perhaps the most lucrative new product to come along in our life times. That will go away, but still... talk about stacking the cards in the favor of the house.
You have already shown us that you can compromise -- well how about leading, instead of following? Play hardball. Take the Democratic Parties support away from the Blue Dogs, instead of giving them the power to push through the insurance compainies last gasps. Playing the noble little loser on health care is not going to work this time around. Without results, your best intentions are meaningless. I could have laid around and hoped you would become president, instead of risking my life to help. You know the powers of my influence on that election, and it is only going to grow in the next one, despite your best efforts. Watch and see.
God is at work here.
Oh, Christ... I get so pissed off as I watch how politics works. It really is the last free range for the criminals. Paid PR people for the status quo.
From a pit of cynicism, I call out for the dawn of a new day...
