NOW You Get Mad?!?!

I'm not sure who first first wrote this. A friend forwarded it to me in an email. A search only showed that it's been around for a while but failed to turn up the original author. Still, with the election coming up in just two days, it seems timely.

We had eight years of Bush and Cheney, now you get mad!?!?
You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.
You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy.
You didn't get mad when a covert CIA operative got ousted.
You didn't get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.
You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.
You didn't get mad when we spent over 600 billion(and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq .
You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people.
You didn't get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.
You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden.
You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.
You didn't get mad when we let a major US city drown.
You didn't get mad when we gave a 900 billion tax break to the rich.
You didn't get mad when, using reconciliation; a trillion dollars of our tax dollars were redirected to insurance companies for Medicare Advantage which cost over 20 percent more for basically the same services that Medicare provides.
You didn't get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark, and our total national debt hit the thirteen trillion dollar mark.

You FINALLY got mad when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are perfectly fine with you, but helping your fellow American citizens live healthier lives.... That's where you draw the line.

The Upside to Being a Tea Partier

I take a certain perverse comfort in knowing that if humanity is ever overrun by zombies hungry for brains, at least members of the tea party will be safe.

Beaver Shots

It's wildly ironic (in an Alanis Morissette sort of way) that Barbara Billingsley and Bob Guccione died in the same week.

One starred on a show called 'Leave It to Beaver.' The other took photos of them.
