Slack jawed and drooling

As a progressive Liberal in the 21st century, I am by necessity, maybe by gravity, a cynic.  Still, since this story broke, my jaw has been glued, nailed, to the floor.  The audacity, the profane vanity.  The shallow disfigured grotesquerie.

Found this post on facebook last night.

She writes:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             “please remember that there’s a nationwide public broadcast from Barry on Tuesday morning in our children’s schools!!!!! I am sending a note to school saying that I don’t trust what might come out of his mouth. My children don’t want to be exposed to socialist indoctrination.  My kids know how important it is to make money and be able to keep it for their own wants and needs.”

 I write:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       “Please delete me. “My children don’t want to be exposed to socialist indoctrination.”???

I’ve so had it with you ignorant asstards. You have just uttered the stupidest most underinformed crap that can possibly be typed. By all means keep your little neocons out of school so that they miss the message to stay in school, work hard and succeed and believe in the American dream.

Please, if your chronic malaise is genetic, we right thinking people hope you’ll ignorantly withhold any advantage they may benefit from.

You people kill me! Willful ignorance. Code speak for fear of a progressive black Democrat.
Yep, racism.

What I’m trying to say is piss up a rope you stupid ignorant bitch.

Delete me or I will be here to call you on every intellectually irresponsible thing you say from now on.

YOU ARE THE PROBLEM.”

See what I’m saying?

Insulting someone personally is not something I usually stoop to unless they’ve done as much on my own territory, you know, like on my blog.  Of course, I take great delight in it at that point.  It’s just that I’m so completely frustrated with the underinformed, the great unwashed who don’t read or research or bother to pay at least a modicum of attention, but instead, shout from the couch in an intellectually lazy stupor having just watched Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity or listened to the Human Shitsmear on the drive to Wal Mart.

I fucking hate it.  And I loathe those who would  absentmindedly propagate it.  The bacteria, the cancer advanced by slow eyed fish wandering our sidewalks, malls and supermarkets.  Brainless zombies.

I’m in my hometown of Carson City Nevada on business and it’s surreal.  Today I bought the Sunday edition of the Nevada Appeal.  On the opinion page I discovered the following in a sidebar entitled “Your View”.

QUESTION: Would you let [sic] your child watch President Obama’s back-to-school address to children?

“Absolutely not because no other president has ever done it and there’s no reason for him to do it either.”  -Elaine Torres, 54

Nevermind that the George Bush Sr. did it, as did president Reagan and he used it as a vehicle to promote tax cuts for the wealthy as part of his trickle down economic folly, to America’s children.

The overall poll ended up at 50.79 percent being against Carson City’s school children being allowed to hear The President of America’s address.  I’m guessing they fear that socialist indoctrination thing.  Whatever that is.

How the fuck did we get here?  What the hell is going on?  Is fear of a half African American Democratic President of the United States of America that visceral to the stupid and racist?

Um, yeah, it’s socialism.  Like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.  Forgive me,  we all forgot about those hallmarks of American life and the evil they represent.

The explosion of ignorance leaves me dismayed and disgusted.  Each action has an equal and opposite reaction.  Still, I am in awe.  Reckless hyperbole runs rampant while Obama maintains, clings even, to decorum.  Polite and deferential while the minority rips his administration apart.  Apologizing for Van Jones instead of rising to his defense while he steps down.  Praising assholes like Grassley and defending noodle dicked, ineffectual Democrats like Baucus.  Enough really is enough.

This is bullshit.

These are important times.  Events are severe, conspicuous and exigent.

This has really been allowed to be way too fucked up.  I for one have had it.  Full speed ahead and damn the torpedoes.

All eyes on his speech Wednesday before both houses.  A time to define all things I hope.  I want to know where Our Man is at.  I need to know.  It’s evolution into a circus maximus of  clusterfuck is madness.  If he’s going to be bold, this is literally, his last chance.

Those of us who elected you are not here to fuck around.  Bring it or be Jimmy Carter, despite a majority in the House and Senate.  We want you to throw down even if you lose.  If they don’t have your back, it will be their peril.  Let us take care of that.  Fight.  You know why you’re there.  Carpe diem.  Now.

Waffle on a public option and you lose us.

NOW DAMNIT.  NOW.

Drinks for my friends.

    Ain’t that the truth!

    I sometimes wish the these people would be forced to live under socialism, communism, fasism…and then let’s hear them bitch about Obama!

    Yup. Thanks for playing.

  • Temy:

    “explosion of ignorance”, indeed. But… has it been there all along? Did we simply whitewash our own minds with the notion that in general people are good and smart? That eugenics is not a good idea, lol?

    Man, you said it. These cretins cannot even enjoy normal conversation with anyone, always looking to pontificate on the latest blatherings of the human shitsmear, Bill Orally or even that psycho, Beck. They cannot do it. Too bad, too. They’re fodder now for the great hate machine, which is the repugnant party. I avoid them as much as possible. Let them fester in their own stew, of their own creation, of their own little closed minds. God Bless America.

    Thanks for wading in.

    Keeping ones’ kids home from school is sad but babysitters probably need the cash. A speech? You would think it was birth control! Did the Prez slide a condom over a cucumber? Mr Grange did and I grew from it. Seriously, they should have never shown us Animal Farm, either. Comrade Bacon

    Yep, well said. I refer you to the title of this piece.
