Inherited, Inschmerited

As we all know, our Dear Leader doesn't seem to have grasped the complexities of his new job. He also doesn't seem to understand the purpose of an election campaign. Since I am a Patriotic American, I will attempt to 'splain it to him.

Now, let's say, for the sake of argument, that this is the truth:

Let's say that George W. Bush single handedly tanked the economy, destroyed every good relationship we had around the world AND is responsible for Islamic terrorism man made disasters, the illegal alien undocumented worker problem, AND the violence in Mexico. That does not then make this true:

You see, Mr. Obamuh, you did not INHERIT anything. Mr. Bush did not die and leave the Oval Office to you in his will. You actively campaigned for the job. You asked us and the MSM BEGGED us to give you the job. Well now you've got it. I'm sure that it came as a big shock to you that along with the super-cool plane, nifty windbreaker, and ya know, a free teleprompter, that the job also came with an economy, foreign policy issues, national security issues, and gift giving issues. And that you would be responsible for all of those things all at the same time. I'm sure that you were unaware that you would also have to hire a gazillion peeps to work for you. That's deal tho' bud...you asked for it, you got it, and I don't think it's asking a lot to expect you to do it. Now, I don't expect anyone to know everything about everything so I put together a list of books that might be helpful to you in these troubling times:

That should get you started Sir. Oh, and also, if you could stop spending the tax payer's your employer's money zipping around the country and doing stupid things like going on Leno and insulting special needs children...well that would be just great. And, I'm having trouble feeding my family, so if you could send some of the $100 a pound beef you're serving at your cocktail parties my way, that would be appreciated. I remember you saying something about spreading the wealth around, and I like beef.

And you should really stop screeching about using tax payer dollars to pay ridiculous amounts of money to people who suck at their jobs....because people are going to start to wonder why we are paying Congress and, well, you.

I hope that helps Mr. Obamuh. I really really do.

I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it any more!

All this talk about Rhianna and Chris Brown got me thinking about the situation the American People are in right now. I know, you're wondering how I got from domestic abuse to American Politics and I'll get there in a second. But first I want to say something to Rhianna.....Sweetie, Oprah was right, if he hit you once, he WILL hit you again.

Now on to the point.

The American people have Battered Woman Syndrome. We are being abused by those in power. They lie to us, cheat us, steal from us, bitch slap us, and then tell us that it is all our fault. We have gotten complacent and seem to have come to the conclusion, as do many battered women, that this is the best we can do, that this is the best we deserve. Oh, at the moment of the abuse...a disastrous immigration bill, or a huge mondo spending bill, we get a little angry and make some calls or throw some tea in a fountain, but in the end, we just take it.

We complain that congress as a whole is a big joke, but not our individual representatives. OUR senators or congressmen/women are real jewels...it's the REST of Washington that lost its mind. Just like battered women who will tell you "he loves me, he didn't mean to hurt me." And like battered women, we feel as if we have no recourse, this is just the way it is, and so we keep going back for more. Well, just like domestic abusers, congress takes that as a signal from us that their behavior is acceptable. So, they continue to lie to us, cheat us, steal from us, and bitch slap us.

Well, unlike battered women, our abuse is OUR fault. We CAN make it stop. We have the power to show our abusers that their behavior is NOT acceptable, that we do have some dignity and self esteem. We could, with very little effort, stop the abuse. Our founding fathers (and mothers) left us with the power to totally remake our government. But we keep electing the same group of power crazed ego maniacs who have forgotten the definition of "public service" and expecting a different result. We expect that they will suddenly "get it", that they will, finally, realize that their behavior is unacceptable and will suddenly choose to do the right thing. Not gonna happen. If they hit you once, they will hit you again. If you let them. I say NO MORE! I will not be treated as if I don't matter any longer. I will no longer vote for people who put their own interests above those of our country. I will no longer vote for people who have forgotten that they work for me, and have been working for themselves. When the midterm elections come up in 2010...I'm not voting for anyone who has been in my state legislature or the congress for more than 2 terms. It's time to get a new partner folks, the one we have is abusive, power hungry, and a control freak and does not care what happens to us or our children.

It's time to kick 'em to the curb. It's the same thing I was told when I was with an abusive partner, if you have to leave with nothing but the clothes on your back.....leave. Well, this is my house and I'm not leaving.....but I am kicking some folks to the curb in 2010 and 2012. I am asking you to stand up with me...there is strength in numbers guys, and there are way more of us than there are of them. We need to send the message that the current behavior in our government is not acceptable and that we're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore!!!
