I see that I have been neglecting my blog again. Truth is, I am sort of disgusted by the same old shit from the Republicans and their blatant attempt to sabotage our economy as the 2012 election approaches. So, with that in mind, I have not paid much attention to the whole Occupy Wall Street movement and its various off shoots. Part of me wants to say, "OK, whatever." But there seems to be some real grass roots stuff happening here. There is no consistent message. There is no spokesperson. It is just a lot of people kind of tired of the Wall Street class warfare. I don't even think it is really targeted at Republicans either, although, their efforts to call our freedom to assemble "anti-American" doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. They didn't seem to mind the various Tea Party assemblies back in the day, but, oh well, just another example of Republican hypocrisy. The real target simply seems to be obscene amounts of money. Now, I don't really think they care if Banker John Doe makes a lot of money. What they are tired of is that they are resisting any and all efforts to get the economy moving again. New Flash! Trick down economics does work!
I do have one question for every OWS protester out there. Did you vote in 2010? Will you vote in 2012? Will you get your friends to vote? Your family? The Republicans have passed legislation in dozens of states to make it harder for folks like you to vote, so, pick it up, follow their idiotic rules, and get yourself registered and eligible to vote so we can wipe these misogynistic assholes out of the state legislatures and out of the House of Representatives so that we have a real chance of growing our economy again.
So, with all the blatant Republican hypocrisy, the clear attempts and avoiding any and all responsibility for governance, the obscene attempts to paint Obama as the one not willing to compromise, the massive public support of pretty much every aspect of the Obama job plan, where the hell is our liberally biased media and why aren't they saying anything about it? Yes, they are covering the story, but they aren't asking the right questions. They are simply reporting politics and not discussing facts. They seem to be so afraid of being called out as bias that they are afraid to call a spade a spade anymore.
I won't even start of the actual Republican presidential candidates. The ones currently in office are fucked up enough.
