Half-heartedly, half-attentively, I watched the jerk off on Capital Hill last night. I spelled Capital correctly, as that was the topic of the jerk off. I did not hear any mention of cutting spending in the military-war slice of the $ pie, which is one-half of the pie. What a joke. What a tragedy. What an indictment.
Here are three links that I found in my in-box this morning, which express views of people not brainwashed stupid by political parties.
On this one today, I’m an old person. I cuss aplenty. I am irreverent. I can’t stand flag wavers or Bible thumpers. I especially can’t stand people who support America at war but they didn’t go over there and lead the charge. When I say the Pledge of Allegiance, I do not say “under God,” because I learned the pledge without it being there and I remember it was inserted when I attended Ramsay, as I recall, by anti-communists, perhaps by people influenced by Joseph McCarthy. I recall from the Gospels that Jesus had no respect for anyone, including old people, including his own mother, whom he did not feel were doing the will of God. He spoke roughly to his mother and about her. And yes, old people do seem to have different manners and ways from young people, even though I remember old people speaking of uppity niggers and putting them back in their places.
If you want to relate to me, do so as a person, not as a poster child for other people’s crusades. Not as a male chauvinistic pig, which you did with the forward yesterday. Not as a war monger, which you have not yet done. Not as a racist, not as a Republican and not as a Democrat. If you bash President Obama, I expect to see you also bash ex-President Bush and the Republicans in Congress. If you bash Muslims, I expect to see you also bash Christians who trample Jesus and crucify him ongoing. I think you get my drift. Thank you.
