I am outraged! No, more than that. I am livid! I am furious!
Actually, I’m not, but it’s election season and every ad I see wants me to be mad as a hatter at somebody running for office, and I’m just trying to stay current.
Let’s start with Obama’s”latte salute.” How DARE he show such disrespect to our men in uniform when they are fighting and dying for this country!
And then there’s Fox News. I’m so irritated with their relentless assault on the president I could scream! Hello? There actually are other things going on in the world. IS 24-7 coverage of the latte salute really the most important thing on your plate?
And I can barely restrain my fury at Cory Gardner. The guy who relentlessly pushed the personhood amendment, which would have jailed women who sought legal abortions, now wants the pill available over the counter. Can you spell hypocrite?
And that weasel Mark Udall, who is trampling–yes, TRAMPLING! on hunter’s rights by supporting people not killing each other with guns. Get him outta there before we lose all our freedoms!
I’m so angry with Governor Hickenlooper the spittle flies from my mouth when I utter his name! The wuss can’t even bring himself to pull the switch on a convicted murderer like Nathan Dunlap. What will he be unable to do when he has to make a REAL decision?
Not that I’m not just as incensed by Bob Beauprez, whose bank was at the heart of the sleazy loan business that damn nearly bankrupted the country.
And don’t get me started on the morons, miscreants, numbskulls, sleazes, and windbags currently running for or hanging on to their seats in Congress.
More than anything, I’m angry with myself, because I’ve been rendered so completely and hopelessly cynical by the relentless attempts of the political/lobbying/electioneering establishment and the moneyed interests behind them to stoke my anger.
What I should be doing is taking to the streets to demand an end to the sham we’ve made of our democracy, but that would take a belief that we can still actually take back the country, that it’s not already way too late. It would take REAL anger, not the simulated rage the campaigns whip up.
I’m working on it.
