Is she fucking kidding?

Every morning when I get up, I turn on the local news to see if it’s going to rain or not.  And lately I’ve been flipping over to CNN, just to make sure we’re not under attack – and every morning since I got back from Italy, there’s that woman again…  Every morning, she’s blathering the same crap about “Joe the Plumber” and “now is not the time to experiment with socialism” – all while surrounded by Joe-and-Jane-Six-Packs, each of whom would benefit from Obama’s tax plan, predictably booing and hissing on cue….

Obama wants to “spread the wealth”! Oh my fucking stars – he’s a Marxist!  No, you dimwits – he believes in progressive taxation, i.e. the more you make, the more you can afford to pay…  You know, the system we’ve had in place for nearly a hundred years?

I mean, Jesus H. Christ on the cross, I wish people actually understood some of the tenets of Marxism – maybe then we could get some class consciousness going in this country and people might finally realize that they’re not ever going to make $250K annually (despite having read and re-read and followed all the instructions in “The Secret”…)

And that all the hooping and hollering and fulminating against a 3% tax increase for the riches is maybe not the in their own best interest today…  and is unlikely to ever be in their interest, since they’ll likely remain essentially in the same class stratus forever…

That really is my biggest hope – that if Obama is elected, he can start to undo the last 30 years of Republican propaganda which has convinced many Americans that paying taxes is the same as having money stolen from you.  Where do they think the money for bridges, highways, electricity-generating dams, airlifting your ass off the top of your house after the next hurricane or loans to pay for all that fancy book learnin’ they offer in colleges?

I’m not even suggesting that we adopt socialism (well, OK, maybe I am – not that it would ever happen – oh, unless of course you’re a giant investment bank that needs bailing out…) – but paying more taxes means the government can provide more services… like health care…  or retirement benefits… or child care…  or ensuring that bridges and highways that are not on the verge of crumbling…  or a public transit system that is speedy, efficient and pleasant…  or a college education.

Sigh…  Anyhow, please just all vote for Obama so I don’t have to see that woman on CNN anymore, spouting  the same ridiculous lies every morning…  And don’t forget to Vote No on 8 for all us gays .  Thanks!

  1. oh Friend, you say it better than I ever could. We rant about this all the time in our house i.e. how (as usual) the idiots of this country will continue to cut off their noses etc. etc. and don’t they see that they will be the recipients of an Obama tax plan. That and the whole bogus argument about ” socialization” of health care will mean you’ll never get a medical appointment again! 3 days to go thank God

  2. I like your style….so many of us Down Under here in Australia are in suspense over this election…and hoping Obama will win.
    We had an amazing change of Government recently which marked the end of a dark era- and voting is compulsory in this country…kinda makes sense, then.

    good luck !

  3. McCain or Obama do you really think either of those dipshits cares about YOU, do you REALLY believe that? Tax this tax that shut the fucking hell up, nobody cares about he american PEOPLE not even the americans all we the dipshits of america care about is OUR bottom line.

  4. you remember the last election, do you remember who CHOSE the president. I will give you one guess. It wasn’t you the pissant voter, it was the SUPREME COURT, they installed George.
