It's time to sh-t or get off the pot
I watched some of the Democratic Debates last night, and I did not come away with a good feeling. I have posted about this before, but how many times can these two candidates debate about the same shit? If a person does not know by now who their candidate is, they are either slow, or they don't plan on voting. So what is the point of all these damn debates?
Has any of the issues that are affecting the average American changed?
Uhhh.. Let me see....
Gas Prices... Still threw the roof.... And Rising to the Moon.
Soldiers are still dying in Iraq.
People are still faced with the choice of getting their medications or food.
People are still getting kicked out of their homes.
Young Black men are still killing young Black men.
CEO'S of major corporations are still getting 7 and 8 figure bonuses while their companies are sending jobs to India and China.
Teens in High School are still dropping out of school at an alarming rate. ( I saw on the local news last night that DISD, Dallas Independent School District, is MISSING $52,000,000 from it's annual budget. They are reporting that some teachers will not get paid. How the hell can $52,000,000 come up missing?)
Do I need to continue?
But instead of using the hour that was slotted for this bullshit-ass mud slinging contest to address the above mentioned problems, one of the two leading candidates (Hill-Billy) spent 45 minutes last night throwing dirt on her opponent. While the other candidate (Big O) spent 45 minutes trying to wipe the dirt out of his eyes, nose and mouth.
Nothing of any substance was talked about until the last 20 or 30 minutes of the damn debate.
Do you really care what Big O said about rural America?
What about.. Are you sick and tired of hearing about Reverend Wright?
What is more important to you... A candidate (Big O) telling the truth about how people are feeling in places where jobs have disappeared and the cost of living has risen, or a candidate lying about her experience? And then when said candidate (Hill-Billy) gets fronted about her lie, all she can say is "I MIS-SPOKE"? What the hell is "MIS-SPOKE"? Is that even a damn word?
Naaa Bitch, you LIED!! What else have you lied about,huh, Mrs. "I MIS-SPOKE"?
I understand that politics is not a game for the weak hearted, but damn, since when did it become fashionable to publicly tell a bold-faced lie, get caught and then say fuck-it, either you like me or you don't?
And there are people who still support this woman? This is definitely a thing that makes you go HMMMM.
So in my opinion, if a person has not made up their mind by now on which Presidential candidate to support....
Last night's "debate" (I use that word loosely) probably did not make them get off the fence they are straddling.
Hill-Billy.... A proven Liar and a Power Freak.
Or Big O.... A breath of fresh air.. (once you filter out all the smoke and mirrors.)
Who will you choose?
