One Great Thing About Occupy Wall Street
I'm not that familiar with this Occupy Wall Street thing. It seems a tad unfocused. But what I am familiar with is the conservative's response to it, and I am enjoying that very much.
It wasn't that long ago that the conservatives had a group of rabble rousers protesting stuff, stuff that seemed a tad unfocused. And boy were they sensitive when "liberals" had the nerve to mock these true American patriots, who were doing the most American thing you can do.
Some of us were evil enough to claim that this new tea party might involve some racism. You know, cause they were suddenly so worried about the debt even though they were nowhere to be found when a white guy was President.
Well, now the shoe is on the other unwashed foot and Wall Street is occupied. So of course the Conservatives are defending the most American thing you can do, right? Uh, no.
They are saying that the protesters are Communists, Nazis, and White Supremacists.
Now, you'd think with this tea party example fresh in all of our minds, they'd be a little more open minded about the whole thing. But no, instead they went with immediate hatred and disdain, ridiculing it for pretty much all the same things you could ridicule the tea party for.
I don't understand this thinking. How do these people automatically know which side to be on? Is there a newsletter that goes out? Couldn't they have easily gone the other way, and claimed it's more evidence that Obama is fucking things up?
I've been on a quest the last couple of years to figure this all out, and I still have no answers. Basically, I don't understand why anyone would want to live their life strictly on partisan grounds. Everything we do is great! Everything they do sucks! It seems like a crazy way to think of the world.
Do they know how hypocritical it is? Do they care? Why can't they stray from their "team" and take things on a case by case basis?
Have you ever spoken to one of these conservatives? They all argue in the same exact way, and it's impenetrable. There is an army of these brainwashed sheep, and it is scary as shit. They're not terrorists, but their minds are about as open as the Taliban.
Moving on, I watched part of the debate tonight. I've seen some of the others, but for some reason this one blew my mind.
I was convinced that afterwards all of the pundits would be laughing off Rick Perry. But no, they claimed it was a "comeback performance". Comeback performance? The guy is a barely functioning adult. I can't believe he's been a Governor for 11 years. He can't speak in sentences.
Before he got into the race, I was sure he was going to be the nominee. I hadn't heard him talk before, he just looked the part and was the Governor of Texas and used to talk about seceding. People who hate black people love that.
But he is not good. And then there's Newt. If Rick Perry could say everything that Newt says in these debates, he would win easily. But sadly for Newt, he is Newt, and there's too much baggage there. And by baggage I mean affairs.
The fact that Michele Bachmann has made it this far is frightening. Herman Cain is just making stuff up. And Rick Santorum is the kind of guy who saved himself for marriage, but like all Christian virgins, didn't count the times he did anal.
There's only person on that stage who you could see as the President. And proving just how insane everyone else is, that man wears magic underwear.
Mitt has to come out of this. I don't know how anyone else could. And it's sorta sad for them, because he's clearly not a true conservative. He's the kind of guy I would think the tea party would hate. He's from the (ick) north. He's into government health care, or used to be. He showers.
I'm almost starting to believe the theory that they don't want to beat Obama. Being in power didn't work too well the last time. They've been way better off with Obama as the President. There's so much more to yell and scream about.
If they give him four more years, there's a lot better chance to sweep everywhere in 2016. But if they get in now, they'll have to actually do stuff. And that's where they get into trouble.
