This is just a personal opinion, a sort of peeve of mine, if you will… but it is my belief that ALL career politicians are lying, thieving, evil, soulless, moronically corrupt dirtbags. Now I really don’t give a damn what party they are affiliated with – because if living their life as a full time political figure is their vocation, then they are nothing more than filthy, conniving, manipulative viscous scum that lies dormant within the reservoir tip of a used prophylactic…
I have often wondered what possess a person to become a lifelong politician. I would imagine that most start out with noble intentions, making a difference, changing the world, yada, yada, yada. But somewhere between the yadas, they find out that politics is indeed a dirty business, a place where corruption and avarice are a part of the rules, and once you are in, getting out is never a consideration. The thrill, the power and the glory becomes the drug of choice, while the back room deals, kick backs, and special interest hob-knobbing remains the fix that no junkie can live without.
Okay, you forced it out of me… no more waffling, I admit it… I don’t really care for career politicians a whole lot.
The political climate in Washington, DC is a grandiose clusterf@ck, the kind that no one has ever seen the likes of since the birth of our nation. Partisan politics has never been more of a hindrance as our antiquated two-party system drags us deeper into the muck, as the two sides continue to fight and name call like the self serving brats that they are.
And explain to me this… our political system is filled with supposed scholars and great thinkers who hail from lauded institutions like Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth and Princeton, yet when they make it to the senate or congress they morph into blithering morons and dumb-asses right before our eyes. They don’t know how to balance a budget and seemingly mismanage everything they attempt to govern. For the first time since 1917 the U.S. government’s credit rating was lowered. The present administration handed Solyndra Corporation 535 million dollars in stimulus money, only to see the solar energy company file for bankruptcy a short time after. Our Social Security system has been pillaged and sodomized to the point of insolvency. And worst of all, our freedoms and personal rights are being stripped away on a daily basis by these people who care more about reelection and personal gain, than the welfare of the people who appointed them in office.
Holy shit, I think I just popped a blood vessel in my skull. I think it’s time for a nice belt of scotch while I fire up a premium hand rolled cigar – but now the FDA is trying to regulate the cigar industry, and if that happens, the passion and past time many of us love will be lowered to the brink of extinction. (Funny how almost all politicians smoke cigars but are no where to be found when defending our right to smoke.)
Okay you guys… before you go all Patrick Swayze Red Dawn on me – picking up some AK 47′s on Craigslist and forming a local militia in your neighborhood (Wolverines!), we have to remember that there are a hell of a lot more of us than there are of them. We the People still have the power to JUST SAY NO. We still have the right to speak up and tell these incompetent jackholes what’s on our minds. In last year’s November elections, incumbent fossils of four and five decades were sent home packing, sending a strong message to the politico world that “We’re not going to take your status quo, tax and spend, pandering to special interest group bull shit any more! If you f@#k up, you’re out. THAT is the only kind of kick in the jimmies that they seem to understand.
And, hey… just for shits n’ giggles, I’ll throw this little thought out for y’all… How about TERM LIMITS, huh?! Nuff said…
All right, break it up, I’m done with the blood bath here, nothing left to see, go home and pour yourself a stiff belt… good God, I’m exhausted after writing this.
So now it’s time to hear YOUR comments. Instead of blaming either of the political parties, (who I’m sure we agree are both responsible for this mess), how about some REAL thoughts about some REAL SOLUTIONS. Whatta ya got for me… let’s here it in the comments section, below!
Til next time, like always, I’m Keepin’ It Real,
