A bitch is annoyed.
Maybe it’s because politicians are only talking about international shit.
That does not mean that I do not care about the world…but I stay here in St. Louis Missouri. So, I want to hear presidential candidates talk about more than just international issues. The truth is, I judge President Bush a failure domestically and internationally (shudder).
I need someone to prove they have the experience to address domestic drama…that they look around this nation and see the policy failures here too…and that they can balance our domestic needs with all that other stuff.
No, I’m not an isolationist.
I’m just a bitch who lives in St. Louis Missouri and is more than a little freaked out by the “but of course I’ll handle healthcare, education, our aging infrastructure and our inability to handle natural disasters too” dismissive posture I’m seeing from folks running for office.
Trust a bitch, the Bush administration has fucked up shit at home…big time.
Or do these presidential hopefuls assume he only shoveled shit in one direction?
It’s going to take some serious policy, dedication and motherfucking focus to change course. To see that all I have to do is look around where I stay.
The state of Missouri has taken over the St. Louis city public school system, the city has crime-based drama and North City rarely sees a trickle of whatever prosperity befalls the region.
36 percent of Missouri college freshmen require remedial classes to learn the basic shit they should have learned in high school.
800 thousand Missourians do not have healthcare. That’s a damn wicked shame…but it’s the truth.
Nearly 800 thousand Missourians participate in the food stamp program and that number does not include the thousands who receive assistance because their household is not food secure.
While anti-choice folks pontificate, a bitch has witnessed the wounds left by the battles against comprehensive sex education. St. Louis city is in the middle of a Chlamydia outbreak which joins the syphilis outbreak already in play. You do the math… Chlamydia cases in St. Louis city jumped from 3,200+ in 2002 to more than 4,500 in 2006.
I’ll say it again…this bitch needs to hear some domestic policy talk and I need to hear it now. Candidates need to understand that they must achieve my vote to receive it.
Shit, we need a “New Way Forward” too and the motherfucking leadership to accomplish the mission.
But you have to acknowledge what is broken before you can strategize about how to fix it…that logic works for Iraq and for Missouri.
No…I’m not an isolationist.
I’m just a bitch living in the real world waiting to hear what I need to hear and see what I need to see.
