Just Let Me -- G -- Indoctrinate You!

Dear America,

"And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful Wife
And you may ask yourself-well...how did I get here?
Letting the days go by/let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by/water flowing underground
Into the blue again/after the money?s gone
Once in a lifetime/water flowing underground.

And you may ask yourself
How do I work this?
And you may ask yourself
Where is that large automobile?
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful house!
And you may tell yourself
This is not my beautiful wife!

Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...
Same as it ever was...same as it ever was..."

Thank you, Talking Heads.

How did we get here?

Same as it ever was...same as it ever was...same as it ever was...

I heard just yesterday on Fox News that the President has made 38 speeches on Health Care in the last 52 weeks; I could have sworn it was more than that.  But even then, our Commander in Chief Speak Easy is not going down quietly, is he; even when HE KNOWS that We the People don't want what he's hawking, whether it's being done behind closed doors or paraded down main street as if it's something really good for us -- we want nothing to do with it in it's current condition.

Then there is Nancy.
"We have to pass the bill so you can find out what's in it, away from the fog and controversy."
The quintessential dash board bobble-head, that she is; she will tell you anything you want to hear and more.

How did we get here?

Now, for point of reference and geographical accuracy, she should know a lot about fog, coming from the city by the bay in which on any given day, it's people awake to a blanket of it at their feet.  But if things were so clear, wouldn't this legislation have passed by now -- I mean, your party has had the majority all along.  It doesn't take one republican, for or against, to not make this thing happen overnight, now does it?

Seems to me, Nancy's party has done a pretty good job blowing in their own fog; meteorologically speaking, that's what happens when a lot of hot air meets a cold ocean of discontent.

But then there is the mess of Massa -- Eric Massa, the gentleman from New York; now, talk about talking heads, talking out of both sides of the mouth, talking in circles, taking up an hour of Glenn Beck's time -- talking in freak speak at lightning speed... oh     ma   gaaawd

How did we get here?

Glenn actually said to us at the very end of the hour, "America, I think I wasted your time." 

Of course, he feared that possibility coming to light from the first few minutes of his show...asking us to pay attention, look for the new information, that he doesn't know anymore than you and me as far as what this guy, Massa, could say or not say -- adding that he doesn't agree with Massa on most levels, (if not all, after yesterday's performance).

For Glenn, it was a crap shoot really; and in a word, yesterday, the crap won (but not really).

You could just feel Glenn's frustration; it was as if he wanted to reach over across the desk and strangle the rampant idiocy streaming live into the nation's living rooms violating his own brand name; while he tried to control it, back it into a corner, coax it into places he didn't want to go, and for the better part of hour, hold back his (cough) bullsh** outbursts -- pure, unadulterated crap spewed for 60 minutes.

How did we get here?

Have you ever watched fog roll in?

It's slow.  Methodical. Creeping in from the shore and meandering it's way into every nook and cranny, enveloping an entire town and countryside, eventually touching everything in it's path with it's graceful theatrics; all the world is a stage under the dewy, narcissistic games she plays.  Only with street lights does it really show it's face; otherwise, it is dark, mysterious and leaves much to the imagination, and at times, may very well scare the living daylights out of us.

And then the next minute,
it could be all gone.

And just like that, the veil has been lifted and the light of a new day dawns.

What Nancy and Massa seem to miss is that America is awake now; what we thought was our beautiful house, is not.  Between the fog rolling over the countryside; between the wanton disrespect of the people's seat; between representatives speaking cheap and easy from both ends; between a nation on the verge of fundamentally transforming everything under the sun...

the people have spoken; we will no longer tolerate fog politics.

To be sure, it is hardly a question as to How did we get here anymore, as we know better;
now, it is more a concern as to how we find our way through the fog and never go back.

Make it a Good Day, G

"I believe there are more instances
of the abridgement of freedom of the people
by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power
than by violent
and sudden
