The Road to Hell

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.  The road to nowhere that would connect to the bridge to nowhere is paved with earmarks and our tax dollars.  Thanks, Sarah.  I thought you and Johnny said you didn’t do stuff like that, you reformer you.

As I said before, the focus really needs to be placed back on McCain, since he is actually the Republican presidential candidate, as much as we now think it is Palin.  But as each new scandal and lie reveals itself, we must look at her as an outgrowth of McCain, since he is the one (we think) who picked her as his running mate.  It absolutely speaks to his character and decision making ability.  

Point one, she is now shunning an investigation that she, like the good hunting Alaskan cowgirl she is, basically said “bring it on” to.  Where is the “I didn’t do anything wrong, so I welcome this investigation” attitude?  Ohh… the investigation has now become a Democratic witch hunt… even though it is both parties calling for it.  I get it… it’s the Democrats.  

Point two, the LA Times is reporting this morning that not only did she support the “Bridge to Nowhere,” which we all know she did, but she has taken $26 million dollars and spent in on the road that will lead to the bridge, AFTER the bridge project was killed off.  

Does this sound like a reformist?  Does this sound like a maverick who will not waste government funding?  Does this sound like someone who will come in and clean up Washington?

To me, Sarah Palin sounds like a liar, liar, pants on fire.  And the McCain campaign lies right along with her.  Are we that stupid?  All we have to do is watch video tapes of her on the campaign trail when she was running for Governor.  The words fall right out of her own mouth.

On a day when the main front page story is how the government is moving full time into the bailout business, an absolute disgusting indictment of our times and the greed and influence big business supposedly does not have on our current administration… we also have another front page story.  That of Ms. Palin wasting 26 million dollars to build a “dead end” road.

Economic and financial responsibility will be a cornerstone to this election.  Yes, it is a dangerous world.  Yes, we need to have strong security and a strong military, as these terrorists do seek to kill us.  We Democrats are not that naive.  While education and tolerance and dialogue is essential to a long term solution, things that the Bush presidency as all but ignored, we do have to be prepared to kick some ass.  Unfortunately, a lot of these fundamentalists are also fundamental in the brain, and conversation does not make as much of an impression as a bullet.  But fighting the right enemy is also a huge responsibility.  

We are at war against greed.  We are at war against corporations reckless behavior.  We are at war against a world who is surpassing us financially and in innovation and development.  We are at war in the world markets.  But this war must be fought with intellect, invention and inspiration.  America is the greatest country in the world, but we must fight to regain that truth, for it has been lost.  We must fight to give people health care and a good, solid education.  We must fight to keep people safe from a physical enemy and a financial one.  Some people wish to kill us outright.  Some wish to steal our life savings.  Some live abroad, some live right in our backyard.  

We have lost our way.  We have lost our spirit.  We have lost what makes America great.  It has all been paved under by W’s road to hell.

  1. Today, the giant turd that has stained the white house (Dubya) announced that “hundreds of billions” are going to be spent to bail out what he has so single handedly fucked up. To correct his error and to allegedly put the country back on track, they’re spending kajillions (that we do not have) to bail out the failing banks. Nice one.

    Meanwhile, the already strapped citizens, many, many, many of whom VOTED for this dripping, putrid bag of vomit, who can NOT pay their mortgages, who can not afford gas for the car, have no insurance and five kids, who won’t be able to heat their houses in another month, who send their kids to poorly run and over-worked schools with outdated materials and no PE class are about to pay through the ass for something this so-called president (small P, just like HIS) has created. Read:

    “President Bush, flanked by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, acknowledged that the program will put a “significant amount of taxpayers’ money on the line.”

    “The administration is asking Congress to give it sweeping new powers to execute the plan. Paulson said it “needs to be big enough to make a real difference and get to the heart of the problem.”

    Hey! Wonderful, George! Sounds good to me! Put my money on the line. I don’t need it.

    And then… you get the people who WON’T vote for Obama because they don’t want taxes raised. It’s not about money. It’s not about spending and it’s not about tax. It’s about the WORD “Taxes.” The connotation it has established over the years, that creates fear and nervousness in the stomach of every american is second only to, maybe IRS. People hear the word and freeze. And so, there’s John McCan’t and Sarah Palincomparison using that as their cornerstone wherever they speak.

    Why do even the stupidest red-necks believe that tripe? It’s beyond me. Now, we’re digging ourselves (not we. THEY’RE doing it for us) into an even bigger hole. One of two things. The Repugnicans will win, and it will be more of the same. If nothing else, McCan’t is very well equipped to keep things running as they are, no matter HOW much he says he wants to distance himself from Bush. It’s obvious by now, that THAT is pretty much who is running his whole, well (?) crafted campaign and helping to strategize just which buzz words to use to fool america into voting their way…OR…Obama will get elected, and it will be so difficult to dig out of this swamp we’re in, that the whole first 4 years, they will all be saying, “See? He’s not so great.” And using everything that the current resident of the white house has done as leverage for the NEXT election, which will be a wrestling match.

    Speaking of which, let’s stop this nonsense. Let’s stop spending, stop campaigning, and just shoot baskets for the presidency. Best two out of three. Free throws. From anywhere on the court. There. We’ll make it fair. I mean, the elections have been demeaned and cheapened to such a point, that why the hell not. What do we have to lose? McCan’t with his bad arm won’t be able to even LIFT the ball, but Obama is a slam dunk.

    There was a poll somewhere I read on Yahoo that something like 70 per cent of americans would rather have Obama to watch sports on TV with. Wonder why? And THAT, my friends, is the strategy to win the election. Every time.

    I don’t mean to offend anyone with my “bottom line” approach. You may think me crass, rude, outspoken, whatever. I don’t care. I don’t even know you. But everyone should adopt this way of thinking. Cut to the chase. We’re wasting a lot of valuable time here talking and not doing. We need to move. We need to vote for Barack Obama.
