Radical my black ass…
Give Theo the sorta-beagle a nice belly rub.
A bitch is radical...or so I've been told (wink).
Obviously…since I’m an activist…I’d like to see the world reset itself so that my values aren’t so damn radical and my ass doesn’t have to get militant on shit.
But, at present, a bitch is what I am and the world is mostly fubar.
A lot of folks on the right and some Stupakian motherfuckers who have been allowed to pitch tents on the edge of the left (Gawd forbid the move all the way in) have been making noise about how radical President Obama is…how he’s a militant and a Socialist and blah followed by blah followed by another fucking blah.
Yeah right…I wish!
I wish Obama had pushed through single payer health care reform.
I wish the masses had demanded that shit instead of embracing fear despite the realities on the ground then bitching about the moderate as hell reforms that Obama managed to push through.
I wish the wars were over and our troops were home. And I sure as hell wish the masses demanded that shit.
I wish the masses would get their rally on to protest religious leaders writing federal legislation, lobbying against birth control and generally working their religious asses off to turn dogma into law.
I wish CNN had the opportunity to show hour after hour of video of anti-poverty marchers descending on D.C. and speaking truth to power.
I wish anchors on CNN called bullshit on homophobic freaks masquerading as experts who preach that gay is a disease and they’ve got the cure rather than provide a platform for that shit.
I wish there was a whole lot more radical out there…so much radical that radical was mainstream and this bitch could spend time working to keep shit that way.
But that is not the case anymore than Obama is a radical.
Give Theo the sorta-beagle another belly rub.
Do you know how conservative your ass has to be to even think Obama is radical?
Yeah…uh huh…your ass has to be so far to the right that you can see folks on the left out your damn window!
