The Ridiculousness Of It All

(**Disclaimer** I rarely if ever discuss politics. I simply don't know enough to intelligently speak on most topics regarding politics. I certainly don't claim any premeditated knowledge here, only gut basic reaction.)

As a common everyday American, I have to say it's an interesting time. And by interesting I mean downright farking INSANE. I mean seriously, WTF is going on?!?

Quite frankly, I'm aghast at the situation we're in. We, the common everyday Americans have been asleep at the wheel far too long. While we were so cozily napping amidst dreams of sugar plum fairies and immortally burgeoning stock markets, we've steadily and hungrily accepted the steaming piles of bullshit the financial community and our politicians have fed us.

People that we elected, and trusted, to have our best interests at heart have shown otherwise. They have instead lined their own pockets, and padding their bank accounts--and at the expense of you and me.

And to you, Corporate America, and Mr. & Mrs. Politician, I hear you getting worked up in righteous indignation and limbering up your "I didn't do it, I'm part of the solution not the problem" rubber pointing fingers. And if you would, ever so kindly, shut the FUCK up!

I am tired of the excuses. I am tired of the posturing. I am tired of the measures. I am tired of speeches. I am tired of the pathologically rich and greedy deciding what happens to the rest of us.

I want some action. Real, credible, thought-out, hard-work, roll-up-our-sleeves and FIX THIS ACTION.

Because so help me GOD, I, and all the other common everyday Americans you have systematically and smilingly DICKED over, will vote your sorry asses out of office.

I've read several articles and blog posts about Main Street backlash to what's been happening on Wall Street. Let me just say, back lash doesn't even approach the anger I'm feeling.

I am seriously fed up.

And I don't think I'm alone.


  1. I have to say i agree with everything you said. great post.

  2. You are right on target...I am sick of all the crap too!

  3. AMEN! Preach it! I'm with you all the way.

    If we as Americans would seriously get off our butts and hold the "powers that be" accountable...we would be dangerous.

    And perhaps, things would get better...otherwise, its our own fault for being too lazy to insight change.

  4. For those of you outraged by our ridiculous politicians.
