Fight for your Country!

Even Corporate Bigshots have finally had enough of these total fkn idiots who are running our country.

EXCERPT:

Had Enough?
Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where the hell is our outrage? We should be screaming bloody murder. We've got a gang of clueless bozos steering our ship of state right over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can't even clean up after a hurricane much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, "Stay the course."


Stay the course? You've got to be kidding. This is America, not the damned Titanic. I'll give you a sound bite: Throw the bums out!

You might think I'm getting senile, that I've gone off my rocker, and maybe I have. But someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize this country anymore. The President of the United States is given a free pass to ignore the Constitution, tap our phones, and lead us to war on a pack of lies. Congress responds to record deficits by passing a huge tax cut for the wealthy (thanks, but I don't need it). The most famous business leaders are not the innovators but the guys in handcuffs. While we're fiddling in Iraq, the Middle East is burning and nobody seems to know what to do. And the press is waving pom-poms instead of asking hard questions. That's not the promise of America my parents and yours traveled across the ocean for. I've had enough. How about you?

I'll go a step further. You can't call yourself a patriot if you're not outraged. This is a fight I'm ready and willing to have.


My friends tell me to calm down. They say, "Lee, you're eighty-two years old. Leave the rage to the young people." I'd love to—as soon as I can pry them away from their iPods for five seconds and get them to pay attention. I'm going to speak up because it's my patriotic duty. I think people will listen to me. They say I have a reputation as a straight shooter. So I'll tell you how I see it, and it's not pretty, but at least it's real. I'm hoping to strike a nerve in those young folks who say they don't vote because they don't trust politicians to represent their interests. Hey, America, wake up. These guys work for us.

Stay the course on the Titanic= OR throw these goddamn bums out! You decide. If you sit on your ass, then your COUNTRY is worth exactly nothing to you. Thanks for nothing. Get out and do something. Sitting on your hands and saying "Uh..Democrats are just as bad" is total and complete bullshit!

These guys have sold out America. Are you going to sit there watching American Idol and pretend that NOTHING Is WRONG?

If you do, you aren't much of an American, now are you?

THIS Is the Darkest time in American history in MY LIFETIME. I'll be damned if I'm not trying to save our country from these fanatics and snake oil salesmen!

Curtis- Glenn Beck? I think he's just another tabloid entertainment bobblehead. The equivalent of a radio shock jock which caters to people like certain of my family members: People that like their opinions cut and dried, with sweeping generalizations and not a lot of thinking involved. They are the people who say they hate all politics and don't take time to really get to know an issue well, but are never shy of venting their opinion in absolute terms, regardless of how little they actually know the issue.
