Sick. Of. It.

I’m sorry, but I’ve gotten so effin tired of Democrats and Republicans bickering over differences in opinions at the cost of the average citizen.

Both sides need to sit down and shut the hell up. Thanks to Republicans, the US is now running a record DEFICIT with no end in sight, and personal liberties are being eroded faster than New Orleans flooded, all in the name of “the war on terror.”

Listen up. The war on terror is like the war on drugs. We can’t win it because not everyone is in agreement; plus, like it or not, someone is finding a buck to be made off it. This bullshit of passing a resolution condemning a news outlet for telling the truth (something the current administration obviously is unable to do, even after 6 years of spin control) is legislation run VERY amuck. There is separation of powers for a reason; Washington, for the most part, has forgotten why the founding fathers made three different branches.

Democrats are no better because all they’re doing is running around, pointing their stubby little fingers going “ooh! You’re naughty!” Whatever gonads they once had they’ve forgotten how to use.

The important thing isn’t some bickering over gay marriage, estate taxes, or even the “War on Terror.”

The important thing is that we, as a people, have forgotten that honesty and truthfulness are important values that should be placed above all. Catering to some religious nut buckets (either here, or abroad; Christian, or otherwise) only helps divide the country.

Which is precisely what lunatics like Osama are wanting. He knows he need not attack America again. What Washington is doing is far more effective to destroy the U.S. — after all, if the disease is on the inside, eating away, it’s less visible.

The same problem is happening in almost every state that I read news from, including Virginia’s. The problem is that people have degenerated down the point of name calling, special interest groups, and trying to place the blame on someone else that we, as a country, have lost quality, qualified leaders.

It’s time for pork-barrel spending to cease. It’s time to quit making enemies faster than we can kill them (to borrow from a bumper sticker I saw this morning). It’s time to either finish the damn job and to hell with the consequences, or sit down and sensibly find a way to solve problems, across the board. It’s time to quit catering to special interest groups, be they gay marriage advocates, opponents, Christians, Muslims, men, women — it’s all come down to people think they’re OWED stuff. Just for existing. Sorry, folks, I work hard for the stuff I have. Just because you’re a minority owned company doesn’t mean you deserve my money any more than a non-minority owned company, if both of you have the same product, and theirs is cheaper. Telling me I must purchase from you, a minority, at a higher cost, to ensure diversity and equal opportunity runs afoul in the face of capitalism.

The problem is that with the currently elected officials, with their hands in so many pots, it will never happen.

May the powers that be have mercy on us all. We’re in a hand basket, headed straight into the fire.

    “If you tell a lie broad enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    — Joseph Goebbels

    “Moral principles have lost their distinctiveness. For modern man, absolute right and absolute wrong are a matter of what the majority is doing.”
