This oil spill is giving me lots of anal statements….it is the best subject so far this year…..much has been said by right wing wackos, Dems, Repubs, everybody has something to say just too damn bad they are just way too anal.
One of the best statements on the oil spill has come form Texas’ governor…you know the guy who keep spouting about session….but he has a unique take on the cause of the oil fire and then the spill….
“Nobody knows what happened, and I said that in my remarks, that there was a lot of speculation. It could have been an act of God, it could have been, you know, who knows?”
If true, why does God hate the Gulf Coast? I mean it is homophobic, has bunches of guns, a right to work state, low abortion, ultra-conservative, etc…..so why would God hate the Gulf Coast enough to give it Katrina and now a massive oil spill?
I wish to thank all those with a motor mouth….they help make it all too easy…..
I for one have been a bit of a critic of the whole Tea Party movement….not because of their agenda but rather some of their tactics…..to me, lies are just that LIES…it is not a political tactic….why?…if they lie about one thing, how can they be trusted to be truthful about the whole thing?
I recently observed a Tea Party thing on Tax Day…..if you have never been to one of these I suggest you give them a try……if for no other reason than the amusement……
I observed that their were two types or camps, if you will within the Tea Party movement……one part is the ones carry signs and spouting mottoes, like Don’t tread on me or no taxation without representation or….well you have heard them as well…..the other “camp” is the ones that are truly fed up and are approaching it in an intellectual and logical way….these want limited government, end the Fed, etc……I guess if you subscribe to the “camp” theory then there is the Palin camp and the Paul camp……
Palin-ites are the neocons that embrace emotional issues like abortion, pray in school, morality, so forth, what has been called “traditional values”……Paul-ites are the ones that think government is doing too much, responsibility, limited taxation, and does not embrace a rigid set of social morals…..
The one common belief or issue or whatever you would like to call it is…ANGER! Each faction expresses their anger differently……..but make no mistake…the American people are angry….but the question should be…how angry are they? If you watch FOX news then you would be more likely to believe that they, the people, are close to storming the castle gates with pitch forks and torches…..personally, I do not think they are that angry, at least not at this time……the media, all the media, is covering the Hell out of anything the Tea Party does…….not because it is such a dynamic movement, but rather because they missed the boat a year ago when the protests first started…..they are trying to make up for their past oversight to the point that they are making the movement more important than it really is…
The best analysis of the Tea Party movement will come in the mid-term election this year….we will then see just how angry the American people are….we are told that the people have little faith in Washington and that the Congress sucks and the two parties have little confidence….if all that is true then the Tea Party should make a difference in the upcoming elections….personally, I think the American people will revert back to the old reliable, Dems and Repubs…….Why? Because they ARE angry just not with their politician……it is always the other guy that is at fault…..
