There was weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth;
There was panic in the hen house;
The dogs were all howling and the children were crying;
As the Democrats went to bed.
The Republicans are now running the country.
As I have said before, we get the government we deserve and we deserve the government we get. (Even though that it circular - it sounds good.)
The inmates have truly taken over the asylum, so now that crazy uncle can sit at the head of the Thanksgiving table and hold fourth.
We do live in a democracy and election results reflect the will of the majority. Election results also reflect the actual state of the nation itself.
We liberals don’t like to admit it, but this is the America we now live in: a Christian America of gun violence, racism, Tea Party radicalism, militias, out of control police; a country with a higher prison population than collage attendance; a nation that holds prisoners without trial – a nation that executes its prisoners; a nation that is more concerned with its military than with its poor.
Europeans have known our true nature for a long time.
Today we can use the excuse that Democrats are apathetic and stayed home; that Democratic representatives took noncontroversial stands in order to maintain a low profile to secure their own jobs in the future; but this is who Democrats are.
We are a Tea Party nation.
Texans don’t need to secede –we are all Texans now.
I’ll be going down to get my concealed carry ID right after I build a fence to keep non-whites out of my yard while I wait on the Rapture.
Naaaa, I will just probably watch movies on NETFLIX, read, drink wine, make love with my wife and occasionally blog.
