The soul has greater need of the ideal than the real for it is by the real that we exist, it is by the ideal that we live

It's fixin' to come a goodun'

Pardon me while I steal a Matt Damon line from that Billy bob Thornton atrocity "All the Pretty Horses." Great book, what Thornton did to it was just a shame.

But it IS fixin' to come a goodun'. The very very rich are rousing their armies of the stupid, which are in no short supply here in America, and our fearless leader is playing it safe. That way we get more bad shit and he can say, "Oh, well, I tried."

But he didn't, not really. Desperate times call for desperate measures. No I'm not studying Latin, it's just working out that way recently. Latin is a dead language, and the U.S. is a dead country perhaps that symmetry is what's bringing all this Latin into the blog.

Measures must be taken before the elections to, at least, attempt to forestall the takeover of at least one house of congress by the GOP. If that happens we're really in for it. The GOP has proven time and again they have no interest in helping the people and that they will block ANY effort to do so unless it's accompanied by a measure to help big business finish off the country. And right now it's being run by people whose interest is not with the people. It's with the ignorant,with those who think it's 1955 and only white christian hetero people are important.

Barack Obama, the guy who has ignored all the warning signs that this is going actually happen will be the guy who rightfully is to blame when we find ourselves unable to escape the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. There are no jobs to be had. I find that my hours at the grocery are going to be reduced and I doubt at my age with my lilly white skin that I'll even be able to secure a job at McDonald's to help make ends meet. So it's time to batten down the hatches. No bills beyond the basic necessities will get paid if the hours are reduced.

I am certain I am not alone in this dilemma. This type of action, though I find it deplorable is unavoidable. I don't live like a king, I don't spend a great deal, and now with my newfound inability to remain solvent I'm sure I'll see that there are many others in the same boat.

This maters not to Tea-Partiers. In fact I present for your perusal typical Tea-Partiers at last weekends Beckoning:

Please Gods forgive these ignorant fat white people because they truly know not what they're talking about. It's all fear and hate and "Why can't they go back where they came from..." It's pathetic that this is what the Beckoning was all about.

This is the embodiment of what's wrong with America, of what's about to happen come November. The tragedy is that they have no idea the problem is them.

And so it goes:
