I get out of bed some mornings and wonder, “Why the Hell even bother writing a blog post today? Who really cares about anything that I might have to say? Then I remember I do seem to have a few friends on the Internet – - friends who always seem to encourage me.
But the fact is that all I ever write is my own opinion about things – - most of the time – - giving Hell to the Right Wing Radicals – - and everybody has opinions so what do I think I am accomplishing? I still haven’t figured that one out.
I have never read a political opinion piece yet that isn’t somebody’s opinion. So what is it that attracts other people to read opinions about politics anyway since everybody has an opinion – - or just plain don’t give a damn – - which is what I think is a lot of what’s wrong with American Politics anyway – - a lot of people seem to cast their votes based on the last thing they heard on TV or from some of their companions at the local bar - – so what is it all about anyway?
People should have learned by now that if they vote for the right wing they are going to end up getting screwed one way or another and if they vote for Democrats or Libs they are going to end up getting screwed one way or another because (1) Most politicians are more concerned with keeping their jobs than in serving the needs of a constituency – - Getting into the statehouse or going to Washington does change a person, I believe – - -(2) Most Liberals are too willing to “work across the aisles” with a bunch of assholes who don’t know the first thing about “cooperation” and could care less – - so the Libs let the voter get screwed by allowing the right wing to do the actual governing through the process of obstructionism – - so again I ask, WTF?”
What’s it all about?
Why do bloggers bother to blog?
