I’ve been trying to figure out if I’m more pissed that Biden’s speech last night might have been factual and we are this close to the edge, or just propaganda from the left to scare complacent Democrats to vote.
I’m leaning more toward factual. I’ve been seeing this coming since the Tea Party got Palin on the presidential ticket with McCain in 2008. The Tea Party was kind of weirdly amusing, this MAGA shit is not amusing at all. I wonder sometimes do men like McConnell quietly shit themselves some nights when the come home and break out the bourbon and turn on the news?
I’ve had a nagging sense of demise about this nation for decades. Maybe as far back as St. Ronnie of San Clemente. It’s too much dirty money and too many weak men in charge of a too powerful machine.
Last night every single talking head I heard before turning off the TV noise was picking up Biden’s ball and running full tilt for the end zone. If I heard ‘Democracy on the line’ once, I heard it a hundred times. I guess I could have salved my fears by turning on Tucker and hearing about Hunter Biden’s laptop again, I chose to not do that.
I actually turned on some Marvin, listened to Inner City Blues for the ten-millionth time and wondered who and what this alleged democracy actually works for and who it manipulates and holds down.
If old Joe is lying to stir it up, that is reprehensible, if he’s not it is terrifying, at least for old white guys like me… but not everyone. There are people living within ten miles of me for whom it don’t matter one fucking way or the other what system keeps them down and hungry and oppresses them. Hungry is hungry, don’t matter who is turning the screws.
