CaCa-Cau-Cau

Some nice folks in Iowa are going to get together tonight, football permitting, and stand around a bunch of signs, trying to decide which candidates suck less.

I have zero interest in our political system anymore since it clearly consists, on both sides of the aisle, of a bunch of sellouts, ass-kissers, people-pleasers and outright pandering liars who will say anything (and do nothing) in order to get elected (and re-elected and re-elected and re-elected).

My rather meager set of minority creds has gotten me thrown under the bus more times than I'd care to mention over the last 4 decades.

I've been promised the sun, the moon and the stars. I've gotten shit, more shit and piled higher and deeper shit.

I wouldn't believe a politician if he (or she) was standing in a witness box with their hand on a stack of Guttenberg bibles 10 feet tall, swearing to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

The "truth" is that most politicans wouldn't know the "truth" if it came up and bit them on the ass.

I am a tradeable commodity, like baseball cards. My party, the Democrats, happily trades my security and happiness, time and again, in order to get some other sweetheart deal from the mortal enemy, the Republicans. If the Republicans are willing to cut a deal on some pork barrel project that'll guarantee the Democrat re-election, watch how fast they sell out Trannies (this years fashionable focus of political disdain).

And they wonder why people like me don't give a rat's ass about America anymore.

I'm not saying that I haven't gotten a lot out of living here. But I will say that it's cost me plenty in terms of self-esteem and feelings of self-worth.

Just sayin'.

Hey Sis, you speak Portuguese, don't you?

Any idea what my friend here is saying?

Just saying basically that he likes this entry and your blog in general and will come back again and that he would like you to visit his and hope that you like it.

(I could actually understand it! I haven't forgotten yet!)

wow, Bev. Impressed. A lot of the bloggers I hang out with are talking about emigrating should Hillary get the nod (even Ron has been sounding out New Zealand friends about the requirements to be admitted there).

I, on the other hand am totally obsessed with my latest project-- teaming up with a (hopelessly het by oh so Hot biker type) buddy to create what we are intending to be The social networking site for bloggers. My adventure continues....
