The day of wreckoning (yes, sic) grows near [Oct. 26th, 2010|09:53 pm]

So we get closer to election day and we will see which way the country turns. It's interesting to watch the GOPers and Tea Baggers whinging about deadlock and how Obama can't do anything when these fuckers block everything he tries to do.

There's a helluva lot of difference between principled opposition and acting like a child and sticking your fingers in your ears and screaming 'no no no no no". It's been particularly amusing watching the GOP doing this on things they claim they're for, like tax breaks for small businesses. The only thing they're for is giving the rick tax breaks, once gain presenting the amusing spectacle of them bending over backwards to lick their own assholes by way of resolving their hawkishness on the deficit while at the same time adding over $1 trillion to it.

And if they overturn the provisions of Obama-care, they fucking well better have something in its place, rather than tired hackneyed old positions like limiting malpractice suits because that's not going to do shit for anyone who's sick or has a sick kid and has to choose between financial destruction or their health/the health of their family.

But the GOP says this is the American way. If you get sick, fuck you.

It's one thing if the GOP or the Tea Baggers offered.... some kind of solid proposals, rather than mushy feel-good catch-phrases. And the candidates- my gawd. Where did they dig up the O'Donnell character? Anyone who votes for such a clueless fucktard who doesn't even know the First Amendment should be ashamed of themselves. Could you imagine if this dizzy cunt got elected?

The fact that such a thing is even remotely possible should scare the piss out of us. Yeah, the economy is still a huge goddamn mess, but it took WWII to pull us out of the last depression- we're talking between 10 and 15 years and the destruction of all our economic competitors. Yet Obama's getting slammed for not pulling us out of this mess in under 2 years? Goddamn- where did people learn their history to expect the economy to recover from such a huge meltdown in 2 years- especially when the GOP has continued to block and obstruct?

At least Obama stopped the bleeding and things are slowly improving. But what does the GOP and Tea Party want to do? They want to deregulate the very industries that caused this mess. Apparently, the ass-fucking they gave the economy and all of us before wasn't sufficient for the gimps and shitheads of the GOP. They want the job finished and under their weepy "we love America"-isms, they instead want to commit economic terrorism against the country they profess to love.

Stop the bullshit. These fuckers are profiteers, willing to suck the dick of Big Finance and Big Industry and fuck America and fuck each and every one of us. We're expendable. All of these 'populists' will sell us all down the river as soon as they get their lips on the sugar tit.

Don't worry; they can try to overturn Obama's health care plan all they want, but he's still the President, he's got the veto.

And I can't wait. I really can't. Either some grownups will take control (which is not outside the realm of possibility) and we'll see reasonable compromise...or they'll stick to this Groundhog Day track they've been on, try to shut down the government, and get clowned.

Taking the pessimistic view that the GOP prevails, we would see them passing all sorts of measures, Obama would veto him, and we'd hear the GOP whinging about how the majority is having its will thwarted by the minority and the followers of Beck/Limbaugh/Hannity nodding their heads like this is something brand new.

An interesting aside- I'm reading a book on the history and collapse of the Soviet Union and a large part of the Soviet control rested upon a control of current events and history by the Communist Party. We see a twisted version here in the US- people are only too eager to gobble up the mush offered to them and don't even trust their own memories or take a moment to do a bit of research. If Beck/Hannity/Limbaugh say it is or was, so be it.

And a second interesting aside- while the GOP obstructs and fucks up the recovery efforts, big story on yahoo.com about China's booming economy and all the huge projects coming on line that will allow them to expand even more. I take a certain sad pride in having said, going back to the Reign of the Prodigal Idiot Son President, that in the future we will be a slave state to China, thanks to the policies of the GOP. That day might be closer than we think.

Sure, they'll whine, but it won't sell. They tried that during the Clinton administration, and it ended horribly for them. Obama's also already fired a few warning shots across the bow.

Besides, most projections show them having, at best, a twenty seat advantage in the House and not winning the Senate. That means all they really have to do is keep alienating their moderates and soon the elected leadership will have a real leadership to deal with.
