Letterman’s TOP-10 Reasons he votes Democrat

Dem_01

#10.  I vote Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I’ve decided to marry my German Shepherd.

#9.  I vote Democrat because I believe oil companies’ profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon at 15% isn’t.

#8.  I vote Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

#7.  I vote Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

#6.  I vote Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.  I am also thankful that we have a 911 service that gets police to your home in order to identify your body after a home invasion.

#5.  I vote Democrat because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive and comfy.

#4.  I vote Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away Social Security from those who paid into it.

#3. I vote Democrat because I believe that businesses should not be allowed to make profits for themselves .  They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrat Party sees fit.

#2.  I vote Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

… And, the #1 reason I vote Democrat is because I think it’s better to pay $billions$ for oil to people who hate us , but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher, or fish here in America.  We don’t care about the beetles, gophers, or fish in those other countries.

JUST THINKIN’ #4 Political Conventions

We’re all just Sheep to the Politicians

I was just Thinkin’ about this flood of Jaded Journalistic interest thrust on the TWO Party Political Conventions.

I live in Florida, near Tampa, and the RNC was essentially a week of self-congratulatory BS.

And, the tight Bastards didn’t even spend very much money at the local establishments. It seems that everyone attending were tightly controlled when not at the convention site itself.

Otherwise, they were transported to pre-reserved parties and such where the glad-handing was tightly managed and the drive for more contributions approached the High-pressure level.

On the other hand, the Journalists, and I use that term loosely, any more, now that they admit to their being whores to the purchasers of the most commercial time. spent their time sitting, in full makeup, repeating the same tired statements until you fall asleep.

The best thing that I can say about the RNC in Tampa, is; THE DAMNED THING IS OVER and NOW the STREETS WILL BE REOPENED for the PUBLIC to USE!

Sitting here, watching the windup for the DNC I will tell you that the Best thing I can say about the DNC in Charlotte is; THE DNC is in CHARLOTTE and NOT IN TAMPA!

Sure, OK, there may be someone who delivers the speech of the Century, but honestly?  I doubt hearing anything of substance,only more ADs that both parties admit are based on LIES!

Am I JADED?

Well my question is; What ever happened to “Liberal Republicans” and “Conservative Democrats”?

Is there a large Gulag out there in Middle America that they were all taken to and imprisoned so as to not get in the way of the evangelistic extremists?

Politicians are polishing their Rocks

Hail to the Thief

Yep! It’s relatively quiet on the “Who is blaming Who” front at the moment.

We are finally down to one Democrat candidate and one Republican candidate. So, it no longer matters if we like the choices or not, they are who they are.

And, both of them, are sitting back and polishing their Rocks for future use.

Remember when you were a Kid and you would search around for a nice rock with a smooth flat surface to toss across the Pond.  Your whole purpose was to get the perfect rock that would SKIP the most times on the surface of the Pond and travel the furthest before it finally sank into the depths of the cold dark Pond.

Well, I see our politicians as doing the same thing, today.
Their Rocks are potential issues that will make them more popular than their opponent, for a longer period of time, and thus will help raise their visibility with the voting public.

They really don’t care what the issue is, as long as it doesn’t hurt their standings and has the potential to damage their opponents in some way.

So, what do we do?
We, the voting public?
We just sit back and watch the Clowns dance their Fool’s Dance and occasionally pull out another rock and see of it will SKIP well.

Thanks for all the Fish!

A Sunset on the planet called Earth before it was destroyed.

I don’t know if you are my age or not, but back in the Sixties, there was a great, camp, book that everyone, who considered themselves Cool, had to read. It was originally a radio show, but quickly turned into a book called “The HitchHikers Guide to the Galaxy”.

Even though it was a purely comedic work, I, along with so many others my age, read it, related to so much from it, and had many discussions on it’s “hidden” meanings, how it applied to our world then, and even more. It was a Camp hit of that time.

And, if you haven’t read it, it is still entertaining, even today.

Because I had read it so many times, and it was so entrenched into my mind, throughout my adult life, I would, occasionally, throw out one of the many ambiguous quotes from the book, in meetings, and such, just to see how many people caught what I had said.

Often, my comments would be met with laughs or at least a smile, and a few times, even a few responding comments, that only a fellow 60’s “Hippie” type person would understand.

Of course, over time, as we aged, and our working peers became younger, the responses and finally even the smiles disappeared, all to be replaced with questioning looks.

But, I really didn’t care, and with my particular and often peculiar personality (or so I have been told), I continued, at the appropriate moment, of course, to sling one of my generational lines into conversations, Just for the Hell of it usually.
Anyway, one of my favorites was. “Good Bye and thanks for the Fish!”

I won’t go into a lot of details about it here.

Leave MY Fish Alone!

Suffice it to say that it was a critical line from one of the most important characters in the book, and from the story itself, it was an important statement to all of the people of Earth.

If you don’t understand, but I have piqued your interest, then read the book.

If you were able to pull the statement from the cobwebs of your mind, and are sitting there, smiling, then maybe there is hope for us Retirees, yet.

Hope that we can wake up and see the changes being wrought in our world, and try to stop or at least change it for the better and for us as Baby Boomers, before it is too late.

You, and I, need to recognize the two-faced guys for who they are and we need to burst from our lethargic positions, remove their crowns and reject the insanity that we have allowed them to spout.

And, if nothing else, we need to see that our own, personal, “Boomer” insanity is made a higher priority in the order of the cosmos that we presently live in.

We can find the great computer “Deep Thought” quite easily. I mean, it’s just sitting there, in plain sight, so that is no longer the problem.

With access and a little control over Deep Thought, we, the Seniors of the world, can band together and present a unified front to the wicked Mouse distorted chaos that reigns as truth, in government, and especially, in DC, today.

I have found MY Towel!

As long as we make sure that we have our towels with us, we can march together, even if only via email and phone calls, and scare the President of the Galaxy into a new consideration of the real “Question”.

That is, once we have explained to him and his fellow Mice in Washington that even though the answer is 42, he needs to understand the real question, and not some nonsensical financial suppositions that are touted by mere power hungry Congressmen.

So, Retirees, Seniors, Baby Boomers, old Hippies, and all of the concerned people of the world, lets unite, and pose the real and honest great question to the Cosmos.

We need to ask them; “Why are you eating All of Our Fish?”.

IF we can get them to leave out Fish alone, then maybe we can find a way to grow our Fish, and have not only, enough for ourselves, but maybe, if we use our towels of truth effectively, we can even generate more to share with others like the X-Gens, and Y-Gens, etc.

But, we do need to move now, and tell them; “You can Keep Your Thanks, and we will Keep our Fish!”
Along with; “And, if you don’t listen to us, we will have your own, personal little secret planet of corruption and self-involvement ……….. destroyed!” We know who to call, and the price is relatively cheap, considering all else in the Cosmos!

As an aged, silver haired Boomer, who has found his towel in my old attic chest that I call memories, I am now awake to these happenings, and you need to join me as I say;

I want my Fish left alone!?
