Politics as usual

This just in.

First comment: 20%? Aww, poor babies. Welcome to the real world.

Second comment: What many are saying: What? You mean he’s going to cut taxes for businesses and pass the cost on to the middle class? You’re kidding! That’s outrageous!!! Let’s go protest and get arrested like we wish we had in the 70s but were too young or well-behaved. What the rest of us say: Well, duh? You’re surprised? You voted for him, what did you expect exactly? Then we shrug our shoulders and go about our insanely-overscheduled lives trying to keep our financial heads above water.

Is it actually possible that they didn’t see it coming?

I know, I know. Of course they didn’t. Alas, the average American just can’t pay attention long enough to make such predictions.

I’m so tired and disillusioned by this, and so many other things, I can think of nothing better to do than to go to bed and hide my head under my pillow.

Maybe by tomorrow it will all go away.

At least we’re not victims of a recent earthquake/tsunami/nuclear disaster.

That makes it seem so much better.

p.s. What’s the difference between “As if?” and “Who knew?” I think I’ve inadvertently created a redundancy.

    I copied and pasted because the link didn’t link, or whatever.

    I’m not sure what I think about all the facts in the article. But I do know that I’ve been wanting to get under my covers and hide since I saw “Gasland.” Any world where the government says it’s okay for your tap water to ignite and make you sick, so a corporation can flourish, has already prepared me for the “20 per cents” and the handouts to the rich.

    Gee, Republicans taxing the middle class and passing on the $$ to the rich? Who’d a thunk?
