We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It's really easiest to ignore Mr. Obama's rapidly changing flights of fancy if you don't watch or listen. You're not nearly as apt to have a myocardial infarct. We tuned in to two old episodes of 'Frazier.' and enjoyed the wittiness of the shows. There are so few scriptwriters now who can write comedy.
I work with a lib who told me all the great points he made in his speech. As if any of it is real. Taking every point as fact, and ignoring all the broken promises of the past. Unable to see the difference through her myopia. He's still a young cool dude with the balls to set everything straight.
Folks these days are on the bread and circus dole and the adoration of this man reminds me only of Mussolini, a lot like his sneer and raised nose does.
Be very afraid folks. Many, if not most Americans have no ability to sort any of this out. Fear, greed, and ignorance will trump logic every time. Minding other people's business is not just fun, but essential to the mask that these empty people wear over their shallow lives. To my friend at work, you have yet to get what you deserve. The camps will be a welcome sight, should they ever materialize, and dammit, why haven't they?
And I have yet to hear anyone call this Obama's last SOTU.
