this stupid country...


dude...

we are the last ones... well, except for the trannys, the last persons in america to realize our constitutional rights, our civil rights, hell our basic human rights... all this bullshit hand wringing over dont ask dont tell, gay marriage, the employment non-discrimination act, the gay agenda.... none of this would be happening if we were talking about the denial of any of these god given rights under law because of race, gender, religion, national origins, skin color, age, disability, or even criminal records... and its hush hush if tweens n teens get bullied in school or on the play ground, in the locker room, in church, at home or on-line for being different, queer, moody, aspie, outcast.... its only after they take their own lives that anyone pays attention.. all this talking talking talking then shouting and shouting more louder and nothing ever changes...epic fail..


gay teens are still committing suicide and in ever greater numbers... the republican candidate for governor of new york makes disparaging [hateful] statements about gays in the midst of a national crisis maybe 1 day after prolly gay college student tyler clementi jumped off the george washington bridge because he just couldnt take it any more.. hateful hurtful remarks for political purposes.. fail..


the president of the united states decrying d.a.d.t., threatening its demise on his watch, and promptly seeks and receives injunctive relief when presented with a federal district judges ruling that ends the policy on constitutional grounds.. something this president, my president, couldnt or wouldnt do... executive order? hello.. commander-in-chief much? fail..


i am disappointed with my president.. the first word that comes to mind to sum up his first 2 years in office is... wuss... as for the majority leader in the senate... lame... duck? prolly... if not... an empty suit... looking for leadership in the senate is like running to the bridge of the andrea doria as it is capsizing looking for the captain and executive officers only to find instead the looney tunes cast... th-th-th-thats all folks!! and the madam speaker of the house of representatives.... well, it begins with a "c".... i hope mr. senate majority leader gets his ass handed to him on election day... fail...


and dont get me started on the undecided independent voters... lurching back-n-forth between dumb and dumber ever two years.... republicans!, no, democrats!, no, republicans, no democ trails off.... tax breaks for the rich, for corporations!! no new taxes - for anyone!! national health service is communism... now where the hell is my medicare? and now from fox noise.. the tea party... a political third rail or third way? more like the know nothing party of the mid-to-late 19th century... whack jobs if you ask me... then and now..

how about a tea dance instead..... im just sayin...


i blame society... and the media.. politics is show business for awkward ugly people... people that were unfortunate dorks in high school... its revenge of the nerds only now with money and power and control... and what pretends to be journalism, especially on tv and am talk radio in this the 21st century, is what happens to people whose parents didnt pay enough attention to them as children.. fail..


did i ever tell you how much i miss the cold war? idk, life was simpler then knowing we could all be vaporized at any time with as little as 20 minutes notice... hahaha!

is it weird that all too often i really hope high five kills me soon cause i can see the future and i really dont want to live in it?


sigh... it really does get better.. im just not feeling it today...


cheers... david

  1. On the bright side, Brown is governor of California. Can't guarantee that Dayton will be governor of Minnesota. Although if that were the case, it'd be awesome since A) that's somewhat historical for me and B) I sent him a friend request on Facebook.

    But don't get me started on politics. I honestly have limited hope for the future overall and I can see Minnesota easily turning into a red state. Seriously- we elected Michelle Bachmann. For a THIRD term. And I won't stop.

  2. Calm down David, it’s all a cycle. But the longer trend, the big picture, the way society walks is toward more liberalism both social n economical. You can’t rush history as much as you can’t fight against it.
    Let’s hope for the best,

  3. After the last presidential election, I pretty much gave up on politics. Not that I was particularly upset with the results, it just made me realize how full of shit people are. You know what're some fun games to play?
    Game 1 - Pick an issue that you know little about. Find someone who is "passionate" about said issue. See how well you can argue against them. It's amazing how well you can do, especially if you have google at your side.
    Game 2 - Pick an issue that you're at least moderately informed on. Start an argument with someone who is "passionate" about the issue. Argue with them using a mixture of accurate information and stuff you just make up. See if they can tell the difference.

  4. You must agree that society has become more open to gays than it has in the past though, right David?

    We have a long ways to go but we are making progress in certain areas.

    @ luke..
    i know... im just frustrated because of the waste and anger and petty bullshit that we have to wade thru before the cycle comes back around.. its particularly perilous this time as the 2010 census will redraw congressional districts and with the republicans/tea party in ascendence, it just might be a very long time before its comes back around.. fuck the world! i want to get off...

    ~ cheers...

    @ Robby... lots of kids your age and even a bit older have had enough of the corruption n bull shit that is american politics... no one really wants change, they just think they do... americans are creatures of habit and mostly terrified of the unknown... i guess real change comes when enough people have nothing left to lose and decide to risk it... we may be getting to that point sooner than later... dont give up entirely... not voting is like giving away your right to say no... win or lose, its a principles thing... prop 8 didnt just happen in a vacuum... youre too young to be so jaded...

    ~ cheers...

    @ dean...
    funny how change happens... too slowly for some, way too fast for most...
    but yeah, its prolly easier in a lot of places to be out than it was in 1985.. although, as we have witnessed recently, its just as deadly and repressive in a thousand other places, even in the usa.. no teenager should have to die for being queer or aspie or fem or just different.. whether because of hate crimes and bashing or suicide as a result of bullying.. we do have a long way to go.. we may be banishing hate from our laws, but we need to banish it from our hearts as well..

    ~ cheers...
