29 August 2011. Here’s Something that’s Going the Rounds… “Electile Dysfunction”… NOT What You Think It Is…

Electile Dysfunction:

The inability to become aroused over any of the choices for President put forth by either party in the 2012 election year.

******

Americans aren’t convinced by either side of the duopoly this time around… they don’t like the Democrats, they don’t like the Republicans, but there’s no one else to vote for. Read this:

No one’s happy with the choices given them… and all the media hype and all the political showmanship isn’t helping one little bit. Reflect on this, the average spending on healthcare in the EU is 8 percent, to cover everyone… the USA spends 17 percent for patchy coverage (mostly, enriching pro-GOP HMOs), with HMO death panels refusing care so that HMO execs can whoop it up in Palm Beach at your expense. Also, the USA refuses to enact tort reform… leading to massive spending on “defensive medicine” and settlements (mostly, enriching pro-Dem lawyers). Neither side of the duopoly has incentive to reform the system… neither side really wants to cut into greedy HMO middlemen or rapacious ambulance-chasing lawyers (that would cut into contributions, dontcha know).

That’s only ONE of the reasons why Americans are apathetic over the duopoly’s shell game. Give us a Jack Layton… now, THAT would be a choice…

29 August 2011. Bachmann Said that God Sent Irene to Shake Us Up… How More Blasphemous Can She Get?

Note this:

“I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said, ‘Are you going to start listening to me here?’”

Is this gal serious? I doubt that she was joking… no one “jokes” about storms that kill dozens of people. Furthermore, to claim that it was just a jest when she said that God was trying to get people’s attention by using natural disasters… THAT was blasphemous in the extreme. Russians (and other Orthodox and Catholic peoples) are earthy in the extreme; they’re not shrinkin’ violets when it comes to calling shit “shit”. There are things beyond the pale; all Orthodox and Catholic cultures agree that being earthy and pungent is no sin, but profaning holy things IS a sin. That is, “merde” (shit)… no biggie… “sacrament”… you’re in BIG trouble, Jacques. That is, plain language… no problem… messin’ with the holy… no way, José. By this standard, Michele Bachmann threw a fresh malodorous cow pie in the faces of all real believers. She doesn’t hold God’s holiness in high esteem… she’s nothing but a posturing phoney.

You know whom NOT to vote for, don’t you?
