Won't Get Fooled Again Cuz Now I'm Too Dumb To Realize The Joke's On Me

The Republican Revolution of 1994 brought them more power than they had since the early 1950s. What did that power buy them? Deregulation of big business. Tax breaks for the rich. George Bush as President for two terms. The longest, most expensive war in American history and nobody knows what it's about.

Are the Republicans, with their Tea Party Express and Barrel O' Palins on the road to a new Revolution? Who the fuck knows? It's America. Anything is possible.

You gotta ask yourself, if they do come back, what do they really want? They say that fiscally responsible government is the goal. I may not know much but I know enough not to believe that will ever happen short of a complete breakdown of government, not merely reform. Many seem to yearn for some kind of "Painter of Light", country cottage filled fantasy America that inhabits their dreams as they lounge, under employed and proudly ignorant, in their dingy trailer homes, cramped yards littered with dog shit and empty aluminum cans that once contained the thin, sour, over carbonated beer that is their staff of life.

They don't know what they want. I'm no better. I don't either. Just happy to see another beautiful SoCal Sunrise.

At least they won't be sending their spoiled spouses on glorious vacations along with 40 friends on the taxpayer's dole. That's my latest blog, and it pisses me off that during our financial crises she gets away with this crap.
