What’s so NEW about this New Year?
Well Cricketeers, here we are at the start of 2009. Just one short year away from the end of the first decade of the 21st century. DAGNABIT! I had in my youth hoped that we would be getting more Buck Rogers then we have. Instead we have plenty’o daddy warbucks, and too many little orphan annies!
There is a “new” congress about to be sworn in, but they don’t really represent anything new in my book. It will do us no good whatever that there will be a few more with d’s after there names then there were in the old congress. They are the same old, same old. The new congress are just as in cahoots with the thieving corpoRATe pigs as the old one is!
There’s a “new” president coming in. All I can say about presidents is:
When ronnie raygun was prez, I thought for sure that we had reached an all time low in that office. I was sure that the next prez would have to be better then raygun! Then we got pappa bush, and he was the worst prez ever. Then we got slick willy and he was the worst prez ever. Then came g’dubya. Ya think he was the worst prez ever? He will be until high noon on January 20th 2009. At that faithful time obamessiah will become THE WORST prez EVER!
How can obamessiah be worse then those who came before him? I’ll tell ya how. He has a good chunk of people CONNED that he represents “change”. He has simply not proven himself to so represent. His senate record is replete with repeated votes in favor of continuing the bloody war. He never once voted against a single military budget, said budgets always rife with waste, fraud, and abuse. He has every intention of continuing to waste our blood and treasure on the foreign policy failure called war.
SONOFABUSH! In his first big test as prez elect, his cabinet appointments have been mostly slick willy retreads. Many of these dogs were up to their necks in the failed slick willy economic policy that lead to the economic crash of the late 90’s. Now that we have an even worse economy after suffering 8 years of labushanostra failure, how is bringing back slick willies gang of corpoRATe thieves “change” or else in any way better?
What would real change look like? It would be a 50% reduction in the bloated military budget. It would be a total recall of all US troops back behind our own borders US OUT OF EVERYWHERE! It would be an end to these corpoRATe welfare giveaway packages and:
CRIMINAL PROSECUTION OF THE corpoRATe THIEVES!
The Telepathic Crickets™ on the ClapSotronics editorial board and I have been hoping for change for 50 new years eves now. We are all out of hope…
