Post-Election Chitchat

Romney was roundly mocked when he insulted 47% of the country, yet that didn’t stop Bill O’Reilly from saying that half the country voted for Obama because they wanted stuff and things. Perhaps it’s time O’Reilly directed his crusade against laziness toward his own intellect.

    I keep checking the front porch to see if my free stuff has arrived, but not yet. Not even one of those boxes of condoms. Maybe it’s because I’m a white male military veteran of advanced years who voted for the guy who is working to fix our country?

    Seriously, I guess people who think everybody is for sale, and that you just need to name a price, see the world that way.

    Romney’s now blaming “stuff’ given to immigrants and minorities as reason for his defeat. The likeability of GOP stalwarts, from Gingrich to McCain, is nil. They’d better run Scrooge McDuck or that tophat guy Mr, Peanut. GOP message of rich privileges and tax breaks doesn’t ressonate with 99% of Americans, especially not 5 million unemployed or 47% looking for relief in an economic wastescape created by Reaganomics. If anything, America is about FAIRNESS. It’s about time someone began to deliver balanced policies based on this simple principle.

    Yeah, great. The GOP is still clueless. Now if we can just get the democrats to do something, anything really, there will be no need to form a new party. For starters, Obama and his congressional troupe of clowns might actually make brief mention in passing of, say, fuel depletion, global warming, excessive defense spending, counterproductive military operations, torture, denial of habeas corpus, hand gun proliferation, Wall Street corruption, regulatory incompetence, undemocratic senate filibuster rules, congressional dysfunction, voter restrictions, infrastructure deterioration, insufficient fiscal spending, cutbacks in vital programs, a partisan supreme court, secret campaign contributions, and a catastrophic shift of the nation’s resources to a tiny minority with inconceivable wealth.
