Bush used us, screwed us, and was then reelected in 2004! That kind of ignorance from Americans is hard to forgive or forget, considering that Americans lack no resource to educate and inform ourselves.
Obama’s a good man and he may be a great president. Do Americans deserve him? Likely that Obama is another valuable resource the gluttonous Americans will waste mindlessly.
After the honeymoon, Obama will call for changes Americans are too lazy and selfish to make.
I wish it could be different.
I wrote this as a comment on Obama’s Youtube page.
I thought it quickly expressed my sentiment and bitterness of the past 8 years of lies, deception, corruption and betrayal.
I’m not going to apologize for yesterday’s blog because I feel better having said it.
I’m not sorry, I’m happy to speak directly for once and not paint an ugly picture pretty.
But I’ve decided not to let my bitterness and disgust get the best of me.
Instead, I want that negative energy to fuel my future efforts for peace, mutual prosperity and cooperation in the U.S. and the world, and that’s thanks to my Dad.
It was my Dad who inspired me to redirect the anger and frustration I expressed yesterday and renew my sense of hope for the future, not because my Dad and I agree, but because Dad’s political opinion is 180 degrees opposite mine.
Dad’s a hard-core Republican and Bush supporter.
Talking to my Father tonight, Dad mentioned the “mob” outside the Whitehouse on the evening of 4 November. Dad thought it was the end of the world, that the “mob” was the sign of a disastrous future and the impending doom foretold in the Christian Bible.
Of course I immediately searched the web and found this video of the Whitehouse “mob.”
According to my Father, a peaceful assembly of people who are actually only happy and hopeful about the positive potential of the future is a “mob.”
That’s not a “mob,” it’s actually a U.S. Constitutional right that police must defend, not suppress, and personally I thought it was really great to see because it wasn’t a violent “mob” at all. It was just a peaceful assembly raising a joyful noise and expressing their relief at the end of a government that has caused death, destruction, and despair in the U.S. and the world.
I didn’t tell Dad but these kinds of spontaneous, happy gatherings of people happened all across America, like my hometown of Atlanta. It wasn’t just the people outside the Whitehouse who were once again hopeful for the future of the United States. They were happy
in New York
in Los Angeles
I didn’t tell my Dad, but I was happy my father spoke so sorrowfully about the end of the Bush administration. Talking to my Father helped me out of my emotional despair and I realized how much I would have enjoyed being in that assembly outside the Whitehouse, or better still in Atlanta, sending a clear and legal message to George Bush: Bye Bye asshole!
I would have enjoyed singing the song that the crowd was singing in that group outside the Whitehouse. How about we make our own party and sing it now?
It’s an old song from the 1960s I think. We can sing it together if you like, but sing loudly because we want them to hear us at the Whitehouse.
Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye!
