A headline in the news today told me our incumbent leader is heading out on his campaign trail. What about the expectation that a president should actually spend his four years focusing on and caring for the country and it's citizens - 100%. Should we expect any less? I certainly don't think so.
Every which way you look there is one and another out beating his drum, cajoling the citizens to jump on his personal bandwagon; promising us the moon, everything under the sun and even a whopping helping after sundown. BH! I am so tired of nonsense and pure 'out and out' lies.
For many months of the past year my eyes were assaulted by signs packed by the local roadsides proclaiming "The Best is Yet to Come if you vote for me" on election day. Even after the votes were all in , winners all announced with fanfare, those cluttering signs often remained for weeks longer. Maybe in hope that their name would be remembered next go-round? Probably.
Then there is today; just how long have we had to contend with political BS since the last election? Frankly, I'm worn out being assaulted constantly with politicians and their agendas, while the citizens are mired in the puddles; fed up being fed the antics of the bankers, corporations, CEOs shenanigans, and the Baloney of Bollywood - um uh, Hollywood.
Now it becomes more clear why I don't watch a television; yet the slick shysters have taken over the airways of internet. I have a feeling if this path of communication should fail, the Schools of Ventriloquism may get a rush of students, who in time learn to pitch their spiel via the birds or even clouds; heaven forbid if they learn how to throw their voices via any thunderboomers.
As it has taken long hours typing this short post, I now remember why I've been mostly silent. IE + Blogger has become a battleground and an exercise in futility for me. Excuse me now. I'm off to weed and dig a bit; to see if the earthworms and sallybugs may have some more intelligent views to impart. I bet they will.
