Blame It On The Internet

Posted in 1 by activecitizen54 on October 1, 2009

Blame it on the internet.

We have polls on-line now asking if we should: “Kill the President” and Congressmen calling for “Military Coups.”

What is wrong with America?

From several sources the excuses I’ve heard are:

  • “The Internet has de-civilized society by removing personal responsibility for words.”
  • “The wacko and crazies have a unrestraind bully pulpit of the Internet.” or
  • “It’s racism and hate-mongering from the poor losers in the last election, a Right Wing conspiracy to de-legitimize this President.”

All respect to those of us who recognize what is honest debate, real issues and have the intelligence to recognize bullshit and avoid it but, the reality is that we who are in support of this President are silent and perhaps too civil to the Bi-polar Right, the drug addicted Right and the Religion addicted Right.

Gore Vidal said today: “Remember the coup d’etat of 2000 when the Supreme Court fixed the selection, not election, of the stupidest man in the country, Mr Bush.”

Mr Gore Vidal also observed:

“Today religious mania has infected the political bloodstream and America has become corrosively isolationist, he says. “Ask an American what they know about Sweden and they’d say ‘They live well but they’re all alcoholics’. In fact a Scandinavian system could have benefited us many times over.” Instead, America has “no intellectual class” and is “rotting away at a funereal pace. We’ll have a military dictatorship fairly soon, on the basis that nobody else can hold everything together. Obama would have been better off focusing on educating the American people. His problem is being over-educated. He doesn’t realise how dim-witted and ignorant his audience is. Benjamin Franklin said that the system would fail because of the corruption of the people and that happened under Bush.”

Vidal adds menacingly: “Don’t ever make the mistake with people like me thinking we are looking for heroes. There aren’t any and if there were, they would be killed immediately. I’m never surprised by bad behaviour. I expect it.”

I knew there was a reason I loved this man long ago and he gets better as he gets crochettier with age.

Congressman FranKKKs declares “Obama is an enemy of humanity.”  This KooKK is a representative of the people and if I were one of those people I would have his job replacement close at hand rapidly.  Mount a recall, charge the man with treason.  Elections are coming and this man will be unemployed where he deserves to be.

Allen Grayson D-FL explained the Republicans Health Care Plan.

Don’t get sick.

And if you do get sick…


He apologized to the 45,000 dead & their families because they don’t have insurance that we haven’t voted sooner to end this holocaust in America.

Today’s events are very much like Nero and Vespasian in Rome.  Bush, like Nero, was a self-indulgent ignorant fool who, instead of burning Rome while fiddling, ran 3 businesses and this country into bankruptcy.  Obama, like Vespasian, moves to build a monument for the people in Health Care what Vespasian built in the Colosseum.  Obama has taken a monument to priviledge and self-indulgent greed and wealth and is working to transform it into something for the people’s good.
