GOSH they’re such NICE guys n gals they get STOMPED ON left n right.
Mostly right.
I think if OBAMA had not been swayed by trying so hard to stay the course his advisers suggested, we’d be:
In less debt
Winning hearts and minds in Afghanistan
Calling a Loya Jurga for all Muslims to confront worldwide opinion against radicalism
Working a Peace Corps angle for American youth.

Seems almost every single security/military type is a holdover.
The photo op with
Republican Presidents Bush 43 and Clinton
(you read that right) over Haiti was sickening.
The man who allowed the fiasco after Katrina should not share a photo op at the White House he helped trash.
He should fade into ignominy.
SO NOW the majority is lost in the Senate, even though it barely matters as the Dems let the Healthcare reform bill whittle away to the size of a small band-aid™.
Maybe we need a Teddy ROOSEVELT, not an FDR.
I don’t have the answer, and apparently no one else does either.
I have laughed at Becknpalin et al for months now, but it seems this lunatic fringe of a marginalized party is not causing mass defections after all. PROOF that a bevy of self-centered non-compassionate users run the ‘Pubs and have since my birth, at least.

A Low From Leno

Here’s a response to the sad letter being attributed to Jay Leno, I hope erroneously.


Jay Leno

“The other day I was reading Newsweek magazine
and came across some poll data I found rather hard to believe. It must
be true, given the source, right?

The Newsweek poll alleges that 67 percent of
Americans are unhappy with the direction the country is headed, and 69
percent of the country is unhappy with the performance of the President.
In essence, 2/3’s of the citizenry just ain’t happy and want a change.

So being the knuckle dragger I am, I started
thinking, ”What are we so unhappy about?” Is it that we have
electricity and running water 24 hours a day, 7 days a week?

-how about the collapsing power grid that plunged the northeast into darkness
and decayed infrastructure destroying our bridges and roads?

Is our unhappiness the result of having air
conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter?

-Air Conditioning? You’re kidding, that’s a priority? YOU are the spoiled brat.
(Or you like in Central Florida!)

Could it be that 95.4 percent of these unhappy
folks have a job?

–Most paying five bucks an hour!

Maybe it is the ability to walk into a grocery
store at any time, and see more food in moments than Darfur has seen in
the last year?

–We work harder for our money than any nation on earth!

Maybe it is the ability to drive from the
Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean without having to present
identification papers as we move through each state? –What?

Or possibly the hundreds of clean and safe
motels we would find along the way that can provide temporary shelter?

-That’s right, Europe has no hotels and inns, I forgot.

I guess having thousands of restaurants with
varying cuisine from around the world is just not good enough.

-…or restaurants!

Or could it be that when we wreck our car,
emergency workers show up and provide services to help all, and even
send a helicopter to take you to the hospital.

-That, sir, is why I pay my taxes!

Perhaps you are one of the 70 percent of
Americans who own a home. You may be upset with knowing that in the
unfortunate case of a fire, a group of trained firefighters will appear
in moments and use top notch equipment to extinguish the flames thus
saving you, your family and your belongings.

–Jay, did you NOT READ
about the mortgage crisis!!?!

Or if, while at home watching one of your many
flat screen TVs, a burglar or prowler intrudes, an officer equipped with
a gun and a bullet-proof vest will come to defend you and your family
against attack or loss.

–Uh, yeah, I don’t live in Baghdad, ya know!

This all in the backdrop of a neighborhood free
of bombs or militias raping and pillaging the residents. Neighborhoods
where 90 percent of teenagers own cell phones and computers.
–Take a trip to Pico Union one day!

–we don’t all live in Toluca Lake.

How about the complete religious, social and
political freedoms we enjoy that are the envy of everyone in the world?

-Oh, you mean like the fact I can’t marry someone I truly love?

Maybe that is what has 67 percent of you folks unhappy. –Damn right!

Fact is we are the largest group of ungrateful,
spoiled brats the world has ever seen. No wonder the world loves the
U.S., yet has a great disdain for its citizens. They see us for what we
are. The most blessed people in the world who do nothing but complain
about what we don’t have, and what we hate about the country instead of
thanking the good Lord we live here.

I know, I know. What about the President who
took us into war and has no plan to get us out? The President who has a
measly 31 percent approval rating? Is this the same President who guided
the nation in the dark days after 9/11?

-Hear, hear, thanks for proving my point.

The President that cut taxes to bring an economy
out of recession? Could this be the same guy who has been called every
name in the book for succeeding in keeping all the spoiled ungrateful
brats safe from terrorist attacks?

-We are not out of the woods yet-Bush has created a million more terrorists!

The Commander-In Chief of an all-volunteer army
that is out there defending you and me? Did you hear how bad the
President is on the news or talk show? Did this news affect you so much,
make you so unhappy you couldn’t take a look around for yourself and see
all the good things and be glad?

-What a propagandist!! Is this Moscow circa 1959?

Think about it…are you upset at the President
because he actually caused you personal pain OR is it because the
“Media” told you he was failing to kiss your sorry ungrateful behind
every day.

-Jay, if you don’t like it here ‘cause we’re ungrateful, MOVE ON OVER TO IRAQ!

Make no mistake about it. The troops in Iraq and
Afghanistan have volunteered to serve, and in many cases may have died
for your freedom. There is currently no draft in this country They
didn’t have to go.
-Afghanistan=Just War Iraq=War Crime

They are able to refuse to go and end up with
either a ”general” discharge, an ”other than honorable” discharge
or, worst case scenario, a ”dishonorable” discharge after a few days
in the brig.

So why then the flat-out discontentment in the
minds of 69 percent of Americans? Say what you want, but I blame it on
the media. If it bleeds, it leads; and they specialize in bad news.
Everybody will watch a car crash with blood and guts. How many will
watch kids selling lemonade at the corner? The media knows this and
media outlets are for-profit corporations. They offer what sells, and
when criticized, try to defend their actions by “justifying” them in one
way or another. Just ask why they tried to allow a murderer like O.J.
Simpson to write a book about “how he didn’t kill his wife, but if he
did he would have done it this way”…Insane!

-If you read it, they will print it.

Stop buying the negativism you are fed everyday
by the media. Shut off the TV, burn Newsweek, and use the New York Times
for the bottom of your bird cage. Then start being grateful for all we
have as a country. There is exponentially more good than bad.

-Let’s skip through a field of fluffy bunnies and yellow daisies as our troops die.

We are among the most blessed people on Earth,
and should thank God several times a day or at least be thankful and

-Erm, I don’t believe in G-D, and that’s my right, bucko!

“With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of
control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the
country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and
terrorist attacks, “Are we sure this is a good time to take God out of
the Pledge of Allegiance?”

-The vengeful GOD of the Old Testament? All yours. Have a nice day.
