The Iowa Caucus

Posted: December 31, 2011 in Foolishness

I usually (never, except for this time) get into political commentary on this blog.  If ya want a geezer-laden rant, go to Hansi.  But I had this old drawing, and figured “What the hay.”

This drawing reminds me of all the republican presidential wannabes trying to sell their particular brand of snake oil to the good ol’ corn-feed folk of I-O-way.

Like these good ol’ boys linin’ up  for a good schnarelling, the folks in Iowa are linin’ up to hear how this crop of hucksters wanna screw them.  Some are even particularly creative, what with their new positions for the same old thing: bend over and take it in the shorts.

This shit really pisses me off, but what can I do about it?   Well…VOTE  for one thing; maybe give someone some money [works on Wall Street].  But the best thing I can do for myself and my own sanity is back-off a bit and not follow this shit so closely.  Maybe take a longer view of things.

Obama has done pretty well considering he was handed an economy in shambles, two wars, and a congressional opposition whose sole goal is to make him a one term president no matter the cost to the economy or country.  Wall Street and the Stock Market seem to agree, despite what the right-wing nut jobs who show up on CNBC might say, and since its March 2009 low of about 650 on the Dow, has rallied to 12500 and made be readying for another leg up.  The smart money is saying ‘things ain’t so bad’…at least for some.

 

We’ll see what transpires in the new year.  My only hope is that people will wake-the-fuck-up and see what’s really going down in this country…it ain’t socialism.

    Well said, hansi. I agree – I doubt few people could handle the mess Obama was given and still retain some dignity and hope.

    I’ll be glad when the focus is off Iowa.
