Spin, Baby Spin

Why don't they ever ask me?  While I believe in the right to bear arms, I don't believe in the right to own assault weapons and I also believe that gun owners should have background checks and a psychological evaluation.  Guns don't kill people, people do and guns make it easier.  Or has everyone missed all the multiple shootings lately?  How many people need to be outfitted like Michael Gross and Reba McIntyre in Tremors?

You know what's impractical?  Having health insurance when one doesn't have a job and it doesn't look like one will be appearing any time in the near future.  I just love how the powers that be in Washington think that a single payer system isn't viable while they benefit from having government paid healthcare.  That we the taxpayers provide.

Four months into his presidency and Obama is revealing his true colors, pretty much like I warned before he was elected.  Like every other career politician all he's interested in is protecting the status quo, in other words he got elected and is now reneging on almost every campaign promise lie.  Guantanamo is still open and doesn't look like it is going to close anytime soon, afraid to release the torture photos that everyone including the terrorists knows exist, not willing to investigate or prosecute anyone involved in authorizing or committing torture, caving on health care, etc.  He's Bush 2.0, the dark version.

I made a comment last week on Big Brass Blog that one of the upsides of being financially destitute was that I no longer received credit card offers.  And ever since I've been receiving at least two a day through email.  First Premier sent me one a few minutes ago titled "Giving me a second chance at the credit card I've been waiting for."  I'm not waiting for a credit card, I'm looking for a job.  One that will let me pay my bills, such as the cell phone that is temporarily disconnected.  Which is making it really hard to find a job since I can only be reached by email.  Now I have to hope that I don't need to call an ambulance for mom.

I don't believe Pelosi any more than I do Cheney.  These guys really do believe that Americans are stupid and will say anything to stay in power.  Anything.  Spin, baby spin.

    Wish I could say that I'm surprised, but I'm really not.
