Let’s face it, fellow progressives, we’ve been duped. But, alas, we weren’t the only ones.
All of America has suffered the indignity of having our supposedly elected representative prove to be just another tool of the real powers that be. Yes, the man ran on false promises to change the wicked status quo. And, hoping for a brave new world alternative from the previous administration, we bought his polished lie.
Now, the excrement has collided with the oscillating blade and we are covered with our putrid mistake. The raised-from-poverty black guy is no better than his privileged white guy predecessor. The costume is different, but the contents are every bit as rotten. The ways 44 is like 43 are astounding. They have now overcast the bright shining lie of their differences.
I could list all of the sins of transgression this president has committed against us, but what is the point? Anyone with the ability to keep their eyes and mind slightly open can tell how badly we’ve all been duped.
I’ll give the current administration some points for furthering gay rights. However, in just about every area other than pressing the economic and social advantages–particularly counting on continued gay financial support–of assimilating gays into the broader culture the man is a horrible failure. Two moderate liberals added to SCOTUS. The extermination of Osama Bin Laden. There must be something else important and somewhat positive I’m missing, eh?
The horrible truth is I can list a score of pure fuck-ups and intentional acts perpetrated against us. For cynics everywhere this is the resounding proof of just how Orwellian our government has become. Big Brother isn’t just watching us: He’s lyin’ ’bout the spyin’!
Remember these things because they are working against the freedom you’ve been brainwashed to believe was your right as an American:
National Security Agency
Department of Justice and Attorney General Eric Holder
The War On Terror
. . . and the list keeps growing.
Most of the above listed agencies and acts were put into place by the Bush Administration. You remember them, right? The consummate liars we believed no future administration could match for its bold chicanery and overt support of the 1% and vile corporate entities.
Ha Ha Ha, take a close look at that picture above. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss!
All the hopes and prayers sent up to the fathomless skies didn’t change a damn thing. In fact, we are even more screwed now than we have ever been. I was always willing to give the new president a reasonable doubt but, since he has managed to persuade me through his actions that he no more works for the citizens of this country than the previous incarnation of puppet president did, any good will I was able to send his way has vanished.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Sucker me.
