Waving the flag of greed and fear, they get a fun, all-expenses paid vacation while regular people teeter on the brink of financial calamity until they decide they have appeased their sugar-daddies. Then they'll act like they begrudgingly compromised with the other super-rich white people in different colored ties and spin their last-ditch hissy-fit into something that makes everyone look crappy.
You may not believe this, Lil' Cobbler (it's a cute pet name I've given her), but here, our officials are elected by popular vote...sort of...sometimes. How they get voted in is by holding elections then counting the votes by district. When elected officials see that the scary colored people are turning out to vote, they re-draw the election districts to disenfranchise minority voters and ensure the people/parties in power remain in power interminably. This is done by both parties so they never have to face the threat of a true election. That's called "gerrymandering" named after famous map drawer and Congressman, Gerry Mander, who shot any woman or black person who got near a polling place. (What, I give a little, I get a little, okay?)
When you aren't worried about being murdered every day by pre-teens with machine guns, you have the luxury of reflecting on how staggeringly greedy the ruling class...It's me, okay. I am the personification of cynicism. Don't you have any up-beat questions!?!
Sexy Halloween Costumes
We live in a sexually-repressed society so this is this holiday has become the one time each year where people get to celebrate their sexuality openly in public. It's like a pansexual Gay Pride Parade.
|Yes, that is a "Sexy Oscar the Grouch costume. I look forward to the search terms that will lead people to this.|
Man, kids are so nosey. Didn't we invent the internet so we don't have to teach or talk to our kids anymore?
