Trick or Treat?
It’s nearing Halloween, 2013 in the
United States of America.
I’m struck by how apt the phrase “Trick or Treat” seems amid our current
political struggles (if we’re Americans), and more broadly in the rest of the
The government was recently shutdown (hallelujah) because the president insisted
that TreasonCare® be funded or nothing- in spite of his Zeus-like bolts of
exemption from the “grace” that is his healthcare scam to any special interest
that meets his fancy. Indeed, he spent extra millions-of-our-dollars to block us
from moving freely to view the open-air memorials to those who died to make us
free from his type of shit.
If that doesn’t boil your blood, then you’re not an American.
What’s not encouraging are the two factions vying to defend “the American
people” from these leftist encroachments on our liberty.
There are the truly creepy-ass-crackers like John
“No-Wonder-He-Got-Shot-Down” McCain and his ilk, who really seem to view the
world around them as some type of political “poker”, where the game is to smile
and bluff your way into as many chips (votes) as you can. Once the election is
won, ostensibly, the victorious Republican Party would then implement its
alternative vision of democratic utopia. The best you could say for them is that
they seem to admire the crafty design and cunning of their “opponents”, and aim
to beat them at their own game.
One might like to believe that, as that’s the only barricade between them
and the charge of outright stupidity. That would still make them failures, but
at least you could entertain the idea that they may have had a plan.
