Greetings from Calico Blackie!
The Government shutdown is looming.
Sometimes I wish I was a good cartoonist. In this case, I would draw Obama and Boehner dressed as terrorists pointing their guns at the American People while both are simultaneously saying:
“If my demands aren’t met, the hostages get it”.
Makes me sick.
Can we just start dragging them out in the streets and proceed to lay a beating on them? Then, we can turn them loose with the promise that if they once again do the will of Wall Street instead of doing the will of the people, another beating will ensue.
But, that will never happen.
So, we go on about our lives.
This shutdown bullshit has everybody talking and it kinda makes me wonder what other shady deals are going on behind the scenes while we’re being smokescreened by the shutdown.
The illustrious police department in Yreka (population 10,000) which is the nearest “big city” to me just got their very own armored vehicle. YAY!
They don’t need it, but since they have it, you know they’ll use it. If they’ve reached the point where they feel they need to defend against mines, IEDs, and the citizenry they’ve sworn to protect, then they should stop calling themselves a “police force” and choose a more appropriate description/name.
But, we’ll all be SAFER!
It’s getting so that soon we’ll have more to fear from the police than we will from criminals. All in the name of “freedom” and “patriotism”.
Nothing to see here, citizen. Move on.
It seems as if we’ve all died of apathy and are now just plodding forward to our graves secure in the notion that we can’t do a damn thing about anything.
A lot of my fellow bloggers have stopped updating their blogs.
Is it because of apathy?
Is it because they’ve finally been run over and beaten down by the steamroller?
Is it because they just finally gave up when it all just seemed hopeless/pointless?
Did they sell out?
Did they get arrested?
Did they give up for their own mental well-being?
In particular, I think about this one:
She was always guilty of giving a damn.
What will it take?
Where will “the single spark that ignites the prairie fire” come from?
THAT remains to be seen.
Maybe I’m dreaming too much.
Maybe I’m expecting too much from the American People.
