The American people have spoken and the only thing I can say about that is “They like to reward bullies”.
Over the past two (2) years we have witnessed the worst “do nothing” congress in the history of our country. For the four years prior to that we saw the “I’d rather see America FAIL than allow Obama any victories” group assail the very basics of our Democracy with their “my way or the highway” attitude. This entire shenanigan has been orchestrated by the right wing republicans and the tea-partiers and their money grubbing backers. The cats in the cradle with a silver spoon and the wrich (wealthy-rich) have run away with the moon.
And so, the American people, frustrated by the lack of any compromise, civility, integrity or decency by the right-wingers, have seen, in their ultimate wisdom, to reward the bullies with control of two thirds (2/3) of the US government.
I can’ t even find any “blond” logic in that one.
The sad part about this is that WE, the DEMOCRATS, have failed the American people. Yet, in our frustration we say that they deserve what they are about to get? No they don’t and neither do I.
We, the Democrats, deserve a good spanking for our failure to get the voters to see the reality of the right and then get the voters out to vote in their interests and not the interests of the wrich. The American people deserve better from us “good guys”.
Until we, the Democratic leaders, learn how to get the Democratic voters out of their apathetic cloud, off their butts and into the action (voting), the bad guys, right wing republicans and tea-partiers will continue to win the elections and eventually our wonderful country will fall into an oligarchy run by the wrich and finally an empire run by a right wing dictator. The fact that most of us will NOT enjoy that sort of society is irrelevant because it will come unless we stop it! History doesn’t lie. Right now we, the people, still have the power of “one person, one vote”, but even that is being eroded in several states with their voter suppression laws. It won’t be long before it’s gone altogether.
We have two years to act and the clock is ticking. After that, its all over except the whining of the looser which is perhaps better described as “The Silence of the Lambs”.
This is a work in progress but we certainly hope you will like and enjoy our efforts here. After all, this is really for your edification and illumination about who we are, where we are and what we do.
We really hope that we can motivate you to come to one of our monthly meetings – no obligation whatsoever but of course we will try to interest you in our club membership. Its only $15.00 per year and we have a lot of fun while we educate and inform the citizens of the CSU area of Fresno. No, you do not have to live here in order to join.
