so good to me...
it was all I hoped it would be...
but Monday Morning, Monday Morning
that Monday Evening...
you would still be here with me...
I've been stuck on the Mamas and Papas, bad; perhaps its subliminal, for I haven't chatted it up with my own in awhile; or maybe its just plum a coincidence, by accident, no rhyme or reason.
Meet the Press was amusing yesterday; oh how we love to hear the journalists banter about making heads or tails out of the life and times of the day.
The left side is still poking fun at the Tea Party enthusiasts and candidates, alike; how did Rachel, as in Maddow, put it, that basically, we all know...blah blah blah...that the Tea Party is way outside the mainstream...you know, so fringe element and all...just how could anyone take them seriously. Or something like that.
Is that the best that you've got, Rachel, still?
And then there was David Brooks, NY Times, who may have tried to sound reasonable but ending up saying basically, "no one is willing to go by way of England yet;" almost as if he were tempting -- and maybe daring -- to put the Tea Party where their mouth is.
Indeed. No Problem.
As Sarah recently gravely pointed out, if the republicans don't really get it -- if they mess this up again -- then they will find themselves on a bridge to nowhere, too...or something like that.
What Rachel doesn't understand, is now that there is a Tea Party, what the rest of us only wish we could say, only wish we could do, is being said and done; while what Rachel overlooks is the very reality of what this day before us really brings -- and that is a permanent awakening and a reckoning of our wayward, irresponsible ways; what Rachel fails to see, is that the Tea Party is just the tip of the iceberg --
you who...oh Rachel...we're down here...underwater (oh yeah, yes indeed, double your pleasure, twice the pun).
Anyone who does not recognize the Tea Party for what it really is, is sadly mistaken, misguided, having totally misunderstood the very nature of the beast. For we the people are alive! We are awake! And we want our country back -- under limited government, less taxation, not just for today, because we are "so angwy" but for everyday from here on out. While, it's not for white folk, it's for all folks -- equally, fairly, in a one for all and all for one kind of way.
What should be the real wake up call for The Left (whether journalists, elitists, mother naturists or whatever-ists) is certainly not the actions of a few Tea Party revolutionists -- but the actual, current wave of austerity raging and rioting in their favorite playground -- in Europe.
How did Cameron put it, "we're not doing this because we want to, we're doing it because we have to!" Oh bloody hell, and bullocks to the rest of you, who don't get it...
well when you put it like that, cheery-oh then...
France burning as we speak, Greece already gone, with Germany just trying to control the element of wrongful immigration policy to boot, as in Das Boot...okay, that might be a wee bit too strong an image, I take it back, but only everything after das.
What most Americans are realizing, is that the austerity measures are coming and must come, whether the left wants it, or not; our sustainability factor is simply no longer alive and well, for the integrity of our very foundation has been completely damaged.
What we see in the Tea Party candidate, is someone willing to go to Washington to make the tough calls, to hit the delete button, to repeal most things Washington has done TO us for the last hundred years; exemplifying exactly what our founders feared.
Oh, and we are not afraid, Mr. Barack "because we are not hard wired to think clearly when we're scared" Obama -- we are not sceward and vewy vewy afwaid like little babies crying foul and whining for our mama and papa; hell no.
We are simply voicing the fears that only our founders knew already -- they could see this time coming from a mile away, from a century or two away. Nobody here is surprised or fearful of what we must do -- we feel it way down deep, in the cold waters of austerity and living well within our boundaries, that only living within our means, can do.
We're not really afraid at all, Mr. President, we're just shivering;
but more important, we know that help is on the way; and better still, we know we can get through this, and be even better than we were before -- for we have every faith in the world that we can, just as we have always done it, once we put our hearts and minds together for a common good.
We don't care, really, if it takes a retired witch, warlock, or a crazy person, we seek a fundamental transformation of the highest kind; you leftists should be familiar with that, no? And, my dear Rachel, there may not be eight days in a week, but the reality is, we are eight days away from this kind of moment...can you feel me now?
Sixty percent of this country believes, way down deep in the annals of our soul, that we are currently on track for a raging disaster -- we feel it like there is something in the air, we smell it like danger is looming ever closer, we know it by what our forefathers and mothers taught us -- and by golly, we're just not going to accept it as our destiny any longer, we're not going to lay down and take it no more, no more.
Sure Monday may have come in with a song this morning, but it will leave us with no guarantee for the night that will surely come; Rachel may be dumbfounded -- but the I's and the T's, all together, have it right this time; we, the people, are prepared to do whatever it takes to turn this ship around. Mr. Brooks, we are, complete with the good Lord willin' and the creek don't rise, ready to go by way of England, just you wait... and oh... for all the irony in that little turn about is fair play.
And we will;
no matter how many election cycles it will take;
while the only time we will look back, will be for all those times we need to tell our children the truth, and teach them the principles that will withstand the feeble and corrupt law of man, and return to the Rule of Law for good, for all, for evermore, and without falter.
"A wise and frugal government,
which shall leave men free
to regulate their own pursuits
of industry and improvement,
and shall not take from the mouth of labor
the bread it has earned --
this is the sum of good government."
"Commercial shackles are generally unjust, oppressive, and impolitic."
"Do not separate text from historical background.
If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution,
which can only end in a distorted,
bastardized form of illegitimate government."
Ahh it's going to be a good day. Time for my second cup of tea.
Make it a Good Day, G
