Apparently the President was on TV tonight delivering some big address. Wanna see how many fucks I give?
None. Because I don’t need to watch it to know exactly how it went down.
Obama repeats often-repeated lies about “budget cuts” (which are not in-fact “cuts”), brags about creating jobs (except he didn’t) and/or promises to create more jobs (even though he can’t), says something patriotic about supporting the troops (‘Merica, fuck yeah!), alludes to his and/or legislator’s oaths to their constituents (all-the-while knowing that those oaths are given to the motherfucking wind), promises not to raise taxes (even though he has already, and his policies will continue to raise taxes), says something bad about the Republicans to stir up the crowd (even though he’s continued to expand on many of the controversial programs that Bush the Younger began), says something nice about bi-partisanship so as not to look like a total dick (even though the “Left” and the “Right” are batting for the same team), and generally spews a bunch of horseshit that means: more favors for the multi-national corporations on Wall Street, and less freedom, peace, and prosperity for the rest of us.
Government ain’t broken. It is doing exactly what it is designed to do. Now the sooner you get that through your skull the sooner we can start putting the pieces back together and building something better for the future.
But as long as you continue to believe that government was meant to serve you and me, well, keep dreaming.
