When this administration was sworn in I was comforting myself with belief that there are laws to prevent the most gross outrages. Then came GM bailout, offshore drilling ban, Obamacare pass by reconciliation. With the 2010 win of the House, I was hopeful that the spending would be slowed or stopped, and that house investigations will at least give the gangsters a pause. That worked out well, too.
They will move faster now because our side is shellshocked and completely underestimate their intentions and tactics. The sky won’t fall tomorrow but each day will be a little harder, little darker, little more hopeless. This is not to say we need to give up; just the opposite, but know this, yesterday’s rules no longer apply.
So you comforted yourself with the notion that laws would confine the lawgivers. Okay. Fool me once, shame on you. But then when they didn’t, you hoped two years later that laws would confine the other lawgivers. Because – I don’t know – they’re not quite as evil, maybe.
Oddly, they turned out just as evil. So that didn’t work. But they’re still on “our side,” so you will continue to support them.
And then you wonder why each day seems a little harder, little darker, little more hopeless.
You’ve given them permission to do whatever they want with you, Sandy, and they’re having a ball with it. That’s why.
Right wing – Left wing. Same stinking carrion bird in between.
