Holy Fuck! We're Wholly FUCKED!

So who are you gonna believe, the President of the United States, or your own lyin' eyes?

Why do I ask?

Well, during the SoTU speech on Wednesday, Prez. Shamwow said he wanted to hear from people on a better approach to health care reform that will
"bring down premiums, bring down the deficit, cover the uninsured, strengthen Medicare for seniors and stop insurance company abuses."
Guess what? There is a way of covering every single individual in the whole country that is
1) much less expensive, 2) deficit-friendlier, 3) more expansive and inclusive, 4) strengthens existing programs, and 5) reins in corpoRat abuse
And all of you already know the name of this wondrous panacea. Spell it with me, now:

S I N G L E P A Y E R!

Which, for some utterly incomprehensible reason has not only been taken off the table, but the remains of which seem to have been incinerated with the trash.

And now the President's 'security' forces are arresting the more vocal advocates who want to exercise the constitutional right to seek relief from their grievance...

No, really!

I'm stoned a lot, so somebody remind me if I'm making this up, but I could have SWORN that during the campaign, "thePrez" as candidate PROMISED to restore the Constitution, to overturn the pernicious precedents of the Busheviks restraining public remonstrances to the Oligarchs.

Did I make that up out of wish and anticipation?

  1. We're in for a ride that will make Russia's 40 years of Stalin look like a cakewalk. At least most Russians figured out you couldn't depend on the Government to do more than fuck you over, thoroughly. The regular folk learned pretty quick that they had to stick together, and help each other out. The embedded apparatchiks would rat them out in a second, so they had to get to really know their friends and neighbors to establish a "Circle of Trust". There are still people who are saying 'Give Obama A Chance, He's Just Starting His Term...', and other idiots that think the Republicans can 'make it all better' with more Kops and a sprinkle of Voodoo Economics (with nary a Haitian in sight). I wish that all the 'Talking Head' reporters, bureaucrats, and politicians had to wear "Sponsor's" patches like race car drivers, and maybe we could finally get enough people to see what a tragic farce this has become.
