“Cynicism is an unpleasant way of telling the truth”
“Ancient Rome declined because it had a Senate, now what’s going to happen with both a House and Senate?”
Obama really missed the boat when he didn’t get the USA involved in the revolution in Iran. Most of his decisions have naysayers using this unimportant tidbit to avoid the real problems they have no answers to in their own country. Great intellects like Mc Cain and his puppets treat him as a mental midget. Mc Cain graduated near the bottom of the class at the Naval Academy and became an authority on foreign policy while a POW for five years and now gives advice to a man with about 40 IQ points above his. This also goes for many other Macho members of congress who displayed their machismo by getting us into culture wars with Iraq and Afghanistan while cream puff Obama opposed it.
My confidence in Obama originated when he sank a 3 point basketball shot with one try while in his street clothes. My confidence solidified when he killed a fly on his arm in one try. I went out on my deck and spent over an hour trying to duplicate his feat and was a total failure. I doubt if Mc Cain or any of Obama’s naysayer could match his power of concentration. Most of them couldn’t make a basket from the free throw area or kill a fly in one try with a flyswatter.
This may seem like a superficial reason for electing a President or congressman/women, but could be a required test. Watching the minority party’s stupid rejections of everything the new administration proposes this requirement of candidates may improve the quality of our politicians. Requiring a history test, testosterone test for men, a hormone test and chastity belt for women would improve the intelligence and moral quality of our government representatives. Neither of the last few male/female encounters weren’t rape as it takes two to Tango. Women may be a little more sinful as the only sex advice given me by my father was that an erect penis has no brains, which men have no control over. The attire of many women today is the cause of this phenomenon. Burkas would be a great help in the sexual harassment area. Men would then fantasize about what is under the Burka; just like opening a Christmas present.
During my youth I was an idealist and each year became more cynical. I’m now a seasoned cynic. At my age the actions of the government have little or no effect on my life, but now find the government and the public amusing. The two party system has proved to be a failure and now believe that Karl Marx and Fredrich Engels were right when they predicted the capitalist system would destroy itself. It is presently moving in that direction and with our present culture of a two party system that has the minority party watering down any programs suggested by the elected party in their quest for reelection. Bipartisan cooperation is a dream that never has or will be possible; therefore our economy will continue to crumble. “About all I can say for the United States Senate is that it opens with a prayer and closes with an investigation.”
Obama is using many of the options Roosevelt used during the 1930s, but big money has a tighter hold on government now. The Health bill may be passed, but the insurance monopolies and Drug Lobbyists will have the bill so watered down that little change will occur. The energy and other bills will have the same fate.
Instead of giving money to found colleges to promote learning, why don’t they pass a constitutional amendment prohibiting anybody from learning anything? If it works as good as the Prohibition one did, why, in five years we would have the smartest race of people on earth. Will Rogers
