RIGHT TRACK? WRONG TRACK? CHECK THIS OUT!

 88% OF VOTING REPUBLICANS THINK THE U.S. IS ON THE WRONG TRACK


What the fuck?  From the depths of the humongous world wide recession in 2008-2009, the United States unemployment rate has gone from over 10% to today’s 5.3%, the auto industry (rescued by Obama let’s remember) is having all time record sales; housing sales from less than 20 million in 2011 are up to over 40 million annually today; inflation is at all time lows at around 0.1% annually despite right wing cries of inflationary death spirals to come; interest rates for borrowing money at all time lows, the stock market at all time highs; Obamacare has actually been a roaring success despite the death panels; corporate profits through the roof; gasoline prices at 20 year lows;  yada yada yada.  

AND YET:

88% OF REPUBLICANS THINK THE U.S. IS ON THE WRONG TRACK!

WHAT THE FUCK?

Not to point out the obvious, - well okay - TO POINT OUT THE OBVIOUS, we, The People of the United States of America, have been rescued from what could have been an even deeper, bigger and longer disaster even more severe than the Great Depression of the 1930’s (viz Greece, Spain, Portugal and Italy) DESPITE EVERY REPUBLICAN, TEA PARTY, RIGHT WING EFFORT TO THWART EVERYTHING OBAMA HAS ATTEMPTED TO DO SINCE HIS ELECTION IN 2008!

So, here we are in 2015 and despite every piece of data (aka “factual information”) 88% of Republican Voters (NOTE: these are folks who HAVEN’T been disenfranchised in the 33 Red States who have enacted VOTER ID Laws - thanks ALEC - and will be able to vote in 2016’s Presidential Election) STILL believe that America is on the wrong track.   I, for one, have absolutely not a clue as to what the RIGHT TRACK would look like to these folks.  Zyklon-B gas chambers blasting away at full steam to rid the country of Blacks, Latino, gays and liberals?  Would that constitute being on the Right Track?  I guess there’s no accounting for reality, is there, among these folks. 


WHAT THE FUCK?

And it’s about to get much worse.  Why you ask?  The end of Jon Stewart who was able to break through the bullshit and propaganda that Fox News spouts like a broken sanitary sewer pipe every minute of every Breaking News day of the year.  Yeah.  That’s why.  No longer will we have anyone who’s willing to put his balls on his desk to confront Bill O’Reilly and Donald Rumsfeld and the gang of Obama Haters around the country with all the lies these folks proclaim as God’s Honest Truth.  Who will be left to tell the truth?  Where will I get my news? 

There is, however, one potential bright spot in this otherwise dismal terrain of newsworthy political discourse:  The First Republican Debate tonight on Fox.  Yes!  I’m rooting for the 12 or 15 or 17 (whatever the fucking number is today) Red candidates who will be displaying their collective knowledge, personal experience, past governance performances as well as their personal wisdom and individual brilliance for all of us to see live and unedited in the cozy confines of a Rupert Murdoch Fox network television studio.   



Let us hope that their true, ugly, natures will be revealed tonight.  And let’s hope as well that maybe the 88% of voting Republicans who believe America is on the wrong track will understand exactly why, if – as they fervently believe - we are on the wrong track,  it’s because of these fools with their brainless slogans that pass for public policy. 

It ain’t got nothin’ to do with our Kenyan-Anti-Christ-Criminal-Muslim-Black President. 

Have a good day!
