The 2nd Great Debate went down and now I have everyone explaining it to me as if they didn’t do enough of that last night?
Another taste of the “dumbing down of America” courtesy of CBS, ABC and NBC.
We may soon be losing “Biggy Rat & Itchy Brother” and the replacements, don’t seem to be that outstanding or remarkable to the average voter
(Or as Yummy Mummy calls him … Six Pack Joe).
Other than “ABC’s Dancin’ With The Stars” (please shoot me!) the fare was rather limited. But that is nothing new for television, America’s vast wasteland of entertainment. So I watched the sorry mess last night, and it was not with great anticipation, just out of routine and morbid curiosity you might say.
No new revelations … Kind of like Chinese Food, it is okay while you have it, but later on, you are going to be hungry for something else.
So everything is cool, the “Street” is under control (for the remainder of this year anyway or until the check bounces), we are friends with the Russians (sort of) but they are rattling the swords again. Not like the old days, when they took all of their dangerous stuff and dismantled it.
We then in turn, did the American thing, gave them billions of dollars in cash to spend.
Our biggest trading partner China, which bought up most of our debt in the past, suddenly isn’t anywhere to be found. We bought all of their junk, and as an added bonus, gave them most of our nuclear secrets and technology. They recently launched astronauts into space so they studied well. Bush I understand asked them “if they could see the red states changing color while they were up there?”
So, nothing to worry about.
Now, all the little kiddies that had to duck and cover, hide under their desk in grade school for an Atom Bomb drill, are safe, and they don’t have to worry about their grandchildren either. The economy and oil companies are eating our lunch a little bit slower now (kind of like being snake bit, taking ‘em awhile to kill us all off). We don’t have to worry about “The Big Red Button” and the dog eaters north of the fortieth parallel and we can trust that they will not be tempted to play with their nuclear toys during the upcoming holidays.
Please do not forget … We now have The Alaskan Moose Gooser Yummy Mummy … And she is watching them from her front porch.
About the only disarmament debate that will be important is the short walk to your car after the movies. And perhaps, who is waiting in the parking lot for you and your purse and/or wallet. Lot of folks walking around with no pocket money, hungry kids at home, and no job. Did you notice that McSame neglected the word “Middle Class” last night, just as he did in the debates/convention before.
The Little People no longer count for anything in America. Sorry.
Get back in line and shaddup.
I guess the only thing we have to worry about (other than flat out starving too death) is people joyously shooting off firearms into the air at New Years, catching a random slug of lead dropping from the atmosphere. The country, according to those who are supposed to be in the know, seems to be just hunky-dory.
I know it so … they were on every channel last night … Brokaw said it was so.
So that means you will never have to worry about paying $10 for a movie that is so bad, that you get up and leave, half-way thru it. You don’t have to worry about Poison Ivy or Lime Disease on your next trip to the seashore. Things are so good, you don’t even have to worry about taking the trash out, until you hear the truck comin’ down the street.
Things have improved so much, gas is down around $2.60 a gallon (what a bargain that is, eh?) and you no longer have to worry about the character of Hillary, Bill or The Pope. Electricity have gotten so high, I can no longer afford to leave the lights on in the garage, when I drive north to Ponca City to take pictures of a “Real Honest to goodness Oil Refinery” that my nephew in Nashville, Tennessee has never seen.
I am now reassured that I will never have to call a plumber to fix anything, will not gain anymore weight, pay more than $40,000 for a car that gets lousy mileage while hauling six full grown adults. Things have gotten so good, that I am fairly sure that I will never have to stand behind anyone at China-Mart with coupons in their hand. Realize that the best things in life are free … but they are still expensive as hell … when they are not on back order.
That’s what they’re telling me.
As the hole in the ozone depletes and gets much, much bigger, all of this might be our ultimate destiny and we may see it a lot sooner thanks to Cheney & Bush. I don’t even believe the inventor of the Internet, Albert Gore, has the answer anymore.
So now all we have to worry about is whether any of these bozo’s have a grasp of world affairs (highly unlikely), people who seem to completely ignore what Ronald Reagan proved a decade ago. That we as American’s need to be more tolerant of folks who require neither intellect nor knowledge in our elected leaders. A winning smile, a cheerful disposition and a little self-deprecating humor will go a long ways, this little thing if done correctly, will do just fine for us.
The down home Town Meeting is over, and I am reassured.
What did I learn? More good-guy opportunists, more bad guy opportunists, more average-guy opportunists, will apply for the lucrative benefits of EVEN MORE government soon.
More greed and a continued lack of compassion for our less-privileged brothers and sisters will prevail.
Science, in the third millennium since Christ, will continue to expand while we continue to remain as we are, predatory beasts with opposing thumbs.
All you have left to do is vote for your favorite American hero on November 4th.
