  •  It seems a question (0+ / 0-)
    of whether to cry into our beer that all is lost and the country's going to hell in a handbasket . . . or bust our buns, blister our feet, scream ourselves hoarse . . . and have it all go to hell in a handbasket anyway.

    Maybe you're young enough to still believe in lost causes.  I don't.  I don't mind fighting and dying for them, but I damned well DO mind spending hours and days trying to talk rational sense into pinheads with an IQ less than their chronological age.  I'm sick of American idiocy, tastelessness and vulgarity.  I'm sick of American MUSIC, let alone what passes for fashion in this day and age.  American politics and economy have been under the thumb of less than a thousand rich, white men for the last hundred years; there's hardly going to be any change in THAT.  That said, those rich, white men have grown progressively dumber, more arrogant and spiritually deadened in the last fifty years or so.  I think it's time we pulled the plug and QUIT.

    Yes, the country's going to hell -- it's been on its way in that direction for a long time.  But it ain't stopping until we stop ennabling those bloodsuckers by giving credence to the pretence that this is a nation of, by, and for the people, and that the people's votes count.  They don't.  The fix goes in a year in advance, and the Money goes where it flows, and voila! the elections turn out just like the rich, white men intended.  It's time to stop feeding the illusion, tear down the curtains hiding the puppeteers' faces, and start throwing pies.
