Every time I visit a right wing website or look at certain editorials in some mainstream newspapers I see much the same old song and dance about how The Republican Party (GOP-ers) is the only chance America has of correcting the “Disasters” they feel President Obama has “Inflicted” on These United States.
It appears to me that some of the “Righties” are either totally bereft of any kind of reasoning power, memory, comprehension or common sense and it certainly appears that a lot of them have either selective memory or no memory at all or they are still thinking that the “Disasters” visited on this nation during the administration of George W. Bush were not disasters at all but were some kind of success story that set the country on track to enjoy the greatest period of peace and economic boom in the history of Mankind . . . or some such crap as all that . . . which everybody knows would be the grossest kind of misinterpretation and delusion.
I have to ask some right wingers who worshipped at the foot of the altar of modern American conservatism from 2000 to 2008, “How’s those wars in Iraq and Afghanistan working out for you? Has peace been restored in those areas after the “Righties” wasted more than 4,000 American Lives and God only knows how many millions, billions, trillions of dollars firing missiles into the desert sands and chasing the ghosts of weapons of mass destruction?
The Righties will tell us, “But we got rid of “The Tyrant” in Iraq and the world is a better place because of it.”
My reply to that is, “We toppled one tyrant and got another in his place and there are more tyrants waiting in the wings so what is your point?”
There is no end to tyrants!
There will always be tyrants!
There will seemingly always be other wars somewhere on the planet that the Righties can get us into so their vast Industrial-Military Complex can increase its bottom line and so the big oil barons can swim in ever greater masses of cash and luxury.
Somebody is going to have to explain to me one more time how some of the wars we have been engaged in during the time since 1945 do a damned thing to protect American Freedom. I want someone who knows about these things to tell me which of the little nobody kingdoms and countries that we have sent our military might into to engage in hostile actions in the years since The Second World War have done a damned thing to stop any of those from sending their military forces to invade The United States of America?
I know what some underwear-chewing, cigar-chomping Right-Nosed asshole will say to me over that last question. He, she or it as the case may be will probably say some shit like, “But they COULD have invaded us or they MIGHT have invaded us.” ( Or some other such inane and unthinking crap as that.). That is how some of the mindless on the right and the radical right deal with most such questions. They pull the great “Could Have” – “Might Have” routine and then go on their way knowing nothing more than they ever knew in the first place which is nothing at all if you ask me. (But who ever asks me anything?).
In my opinion nothing the American Right Wing does can ever lead America into a period of growth, prosperity, peace or opportunity for any living, breathing soul except . . . perhaps . . . for the rich, the super rich and the obscenely rich. There certainly does not appear a damned thing in any right wing agenda that I have ever heard of to benefit the “Common” citizen ” (The working class, the student class,the low-wage earning class, senior citizens, the sick, the halt, the lame, the disadvantaged and underprivileged, children in school, people caught in the awful web of right wing-caused poverty . . . none of those!).
On the reverse side of that coin there is usually more than an abundance of attempts to undermine the folks I have just mentioned in most of the right wing agenda items that I have had a chance to hear about and to think about. It seems to me the right wing must lose control of its collective bowels over the perverse joy they must feel in “socking it to” those who can least help themselves in our society.
Don’t ever try to sell me on the idea the right wing cares a god damned for anybody but clones of themselves.
When that idiot-ology runs out of Liberals to attack it turns on its own kind and starts to devour itself as anyone can see from the many fractures and rifts and divisions that has plagued that archaic and out of touch ideology for quite a few months now.
That old horse is suffering some really spectacular symptoms right now and I can’t wait for the day when it actually burns out like some fragmented cinder of some stinking asteroid or when it fades into the sewer gas that spawned it in the first place and disappears like a bad dream.
The problem as I see it is that “It” might get out the old jackboots and the torch lights and start goose stepping to a new wave of propaganda-enforced populism and if that happens we are all in for a ride on the manure wagon in a big way. I think some of that kind of garbage got a foothold in the elections of 2010 but I also think Americans have now becoming pretty well rankled and saturated with buyer remorse at what they did to themselves and are looking for a way out now. That is a good thing if the vote suppressors allow changes to be made in 2014 and 2016.
