The Sorry State of the Union

One sign held by an audience member at the John Edwards rally in Springfield yesterday summed it up beautifully – “We know the State of the Union. That’s why we’re here.”

W didn’t get far with anyone last night in his attempt to paint roses on the pile of manure he’s created in America over the past seven years. The line that got to me the most was his admonition about how this year’s work of the Congress would affect the future of America.

If the baby born last night while W was stating his idea of the state of things lives to be 100, he will still be paying for the mess Bush created the day he dies. That’s the state of the union Mr. Bush, and it’s the sorriest state it has ever been in thanks not to the Congress -- although they share the blame for not jerking a knot in your tail long ago -- but to you, little dick, and all the neo-cons who backed the cheating, lying, vote defying effort that got you into office.

As a result of your shenanigans we will once again have a Democratic president next year, and, once again, thanks to those “fiscally conservative” actions the Republicans have taken every time they’ve been in power since Eisenhower left office, the Democrats will have to turn around an economy that is far to deep in debt and mired in the muck that’s always left behind when the nation’s wealth is diverted from the workers who create it to the Harvard MBAs who rake it in.

Next week Missouri will hold its primary elections. I will tell you now that my vote will go to John Edwards. I don’t suppose he can win because the press never tells you what the candidates plan to do once elected, but if that was all they could tell you (which is the way it ought to be), I have no doubt that he would win. The Hillary/Obama shouting match will continue to get the ink, and one of them will be our next president, but next week I will vote as close to my conscience as American candidacy will allow. I hope all my readers will do the same. The big day is February 5. Plan to be there. Plan to vote. It’s the closest thing to an exercise of power that we are allowed to do!

Be the change you wish to see in the world. -- M. K. Gandhi
