Words will not be minced. The vote is in. The shame is apparent for those who voted (those who actually lifted their asses off the couch and voted) and voted blue. While the GOP laughs its own ass off at the expense of an America I used to know, we need to accept that people of both parties blew it off. Some of us displayed their colors – loud and true but anyone who whines needs to shut up. The Democrats royally, bluely screwed up. But I suspect they tried hard to win. Just not hard enough.
The voting majority population of America has revealed themselves to be basically bigots over the last two terms of the Obama presidency. These folks who cling to GOP antiquated platforms and policy; who cannot seem to get their mouths around the word oligarchy (but apparently embrace it with gusto), are complicit in the worst bigotry I have witnessed in my voting life. Forget policy, decisions, progress, lack of it, programs, innovations, missteps from the Oval Office. Forget all that. We have had many worse jerks sitting there and we all know who they have been. So jerkishness is not the issue. Lack of education and integrity isn’t the issue, golf isn’t the issue, sex, drugs and rock and roll isn’t the issue. Barack Obama’s only shortcoming – right in the door, was being Black. If anyone wants to pretend it isn’t true, then go for it but it is the unvarnished truth and it has been the real issue driving the GOP since the 2008 Election. (that, and the pre-oath Nobel Prize, didn’t help either). The votes came in and they were counted and Mr. Obama won the election. Which was such a stunning blow to our aryan nation and other small-minded, pistol packing populace, they spent their holidays trying to figure out how to undo this hideous wrong. And it wasn’t just Obama, but his Black wife, two Black children and his Black mother-in-law. And oh the places they went. That toke, that mosque, that trip to Nairobi, the Hawaiian press, the Halls of Records and eventually the courts. All that effort wasted on lies and conspiracy theory because no one could say, dared say, would say: “Well, the main issue is that he’s Black”. So add in hypocrisy to the mix. Because, to my mind, that has always been the one and only issue. He wakes up in the White House Black, he gives speeches, Black, he is Commander-in-Chief, Black. (what about that stank salute?) How could this have happened and how can it be stopped? If the election of Barack Obama told Black Americans one thing, it said, loud and clear – “you do not belong in the White House”. What should have been inspirational, uplifting and encouraging to this built on slavery nation, should have been the achievement of this election. Wrong. What it said in fact was: “watch us make him dance Jim Crow.” We will screw him in the Congress, will mock him on the golf course, ruin his vacations, whisper about his daughters’ private parts; we will undermine his decisions, we will schlep repeatedly to the Supreme Court and we will have interstellar media to broadcast loud and clear. Entrance and exit polls, Silver and Gold to show the United States what a huge mistake they made. And aren’t they glad that now have a Congress that will do all they can to right this grave wrong. And watch as we acquire huge amounts of money from corporations who can only benefit from a juicy free market economy government. Occupy? They occupy. They occupy Wall Street, some of the Supreme Court and the economy. They are the minions; Kochs, the Adelsons (bad for the Jews especially), the Walmarts, the Ailes, the Murdochs, Big Tobacco, Big Pharma and so many others that lurk in plain view.
Who remembers JFK? Well, I do and I remember how the nation cringed at the idea that a Roman Catholic was going to run for the Presidency. Oh damn. Here comes the Pope, the ornate censers, the holy water fonts and we cannot allow that. Those things never happened, but by God, it was still stopped short. JFK may have died from lack of electronic media. The poor man was a physical wreck, he was heavily medicated and a skirt chaser. But it wasn’t “known or shown” due to the lack of technology. I remember seeing the picture of Lee Harvey Oswald shot by Jack Ruby on the front page, for heaven’s sake! Who ever thought of that happening. In public. Those days are gone.
So now for the last two years of this beleaguered man’s administration, the gloating GOP; drunk, sober, felonious, old, male, mostly white and misogynistic will roll like dogs in shit and howl at the moon as they are allowed by popular vote, to carry on their malfeasance. How much better can it get until 2016.*
I simply hope that when Mr. Obama leaves the White House – in these lame duck sessions of Congress, he will go out quacking loud and strong.
*(Hint to Democrats: Do not nominate anyone who absolutely cannot or will not win due to gender, age, color, creed or decent morality. Just don’t do it.).
Cross Your Fingers and Repeat After Me: “I Am Not A Bigot”. January 28, 2010Posted by voolavex in despicable, Politics & Religion.

I would be stunned and relieved if even one of the loyal opposition to our current administration – instead of vehemently protesting “I am not a bigot” (sounding like you know who, who was “not a crook”) would say something like this: “Well, I can’t say that I’m completely comfortable with having a black man as president. I never thought it would happen in my time and it is such a new concept to me that it may be pushing buttons I thought I had overcome”. Wouldn’t that be refreshing and honest? Wouldn’t it help to explain why this president has been lambasted with some of the nastiest, vilest and unnecessary comments I have ever heard in my life about a sitting president. For all the names I called Bush – and I did, I never imagined some of the things Mr. Obama has been accused of. How does the GOP and its Republican zealots get anything else done? Granted the arrival of Facebook and Twitter has brought us all to a new and possibly dangerous place in society. And I suppose if we had these networks four years ago the fur would have flown then – but the people who actively hate our president are vitriolic and relentless. If I had ever imagined Obama’s presidency was going to be a battleground of dirty fighting I might have continued my move toward Canada and said goodbye to Hollywood.

Taking stock of Stockholm and Copenhagen in the last week has led me to some conclusions that may not sound very patriotic, but honesty should not be usurped by mislaid love of country. You can love your country without loving some of what is done in its name. The same goes for your neighbor.
Copenhagen. In order to speed greed you have to be able to use every tool you have to get there. Greed is a global goal. Or the spoils of greed. And why not – I think we have reached a tipping point (thank you MG) where all the fingers in all the dikes are not going to make enough of an impact to save much of anything. Sounds hopeless but it may be more truth than anyone can bear to utter. I was green in the 70’s – what fun being laughed out of conversations about destroying the planet and the small steps that could be taken to slow this down. And if that wasn’t annoying enough – being green was expensive (as it is now) and impeded by the newest in living better through chemistry. No one cared about Three Mile Island or Union Carbide or the Woburn Cancer Cluster. A few (hundred thousand) souls were a small sacrifice for Big Biz to absorb in the pursuit of money. Collateral damage without even a war. That was 40 years ago.
We have made huge strides in our pursuit of the Money and the Brand. As Pogo said “We have met the enemy and he is us”. He is. No one wants to lower emissions by charter. If they sign up then they have to be responsible and we cannot have that and corporate sovereignty. Copenhagen was not quite what we had in mind. So while the planet slimes and slurps and melts and freezes and generally goes the way of a Styrofoam cup – there is good news too – we have found water on the Moon. Get ready to play the collectible, limited edition of Lunar Monopoly.
Stockholm. White tie is never unpleasant to see. And President Obama looked wonderful and a little confused in his as he accepted the Nobel Prize.
But the point is this: Any president in 2009 has inherited 8 years of a war without a point. Obama is doing what Sadam-obsessed W should have continued to do when he deployed Oct 7 2001. Instead he drained our country of soldier’s blood to get an imaginary enemy. We are now back to square one/Oct 7 2001 when the target was Al Qaeda in Afghani/Pakistan. He is merely doing – and not something I like either – what W should have done and won.
I am not sure Mr. Obama should have won the Nobel Peace Prize. I doubt he thinks so either. And as he sends troops into no-win Afghanistan it is an even harder accolade to accept or deserve. Ah well. Unfortunately they do not yet have a Nobel War Prize. Or a Nobel Door Prize.
