All of the sh*t dumped on us by Premier Bush and his cronies over the last seven+ years is kind of getting to me today. Here's an excerpt from a recent IM exchange with a friend of mine:
me: i mean, can you think of anything that would "shock" you at this point? how would we react if we found out, say, cheny organized a blackwater raid, disguised as Iranian military, to slaughter babies in a neonatal clinic? shocked? dismayed? defeated?
[friend]: nothinghonestlyi am sort of expecting to learn that the 2000 election machines were riggedsame w/ 2004 in ohionot all just enough in key placesthat he never should have been pres in the first place
me: the thing that kills me most of all is that there is SO little of meaningful RAGE out there to gel a movement around. i mean, getting obama elected is a good start but where are the mass protests? why aren't we calling for the literal head of bush and cheny, with torches and pitchforks on Pennsylvania Avenue?[friend]: because the people can handle getting fucked over and over again, as long as the govt does it sorta slowly
