Chris Hedges: The Election March of the Trolls

I saw Chris Hedges this morning on Book TV and when he was asked if he was following the election coverage in Iowa, he said no. He said he didn't want to fill his head with such bullshit, well not in so many words but that's the gist of it. He called it "The Election March of the Trolls." An apt name for it methinks.

This is pretty much the conclusion that I came to a while ago. It's all bullshit, every friggin' bit of it. I think that's a reason why so many people whose blogs I used to read have stopped blogging. It's why I barely bother to write about any of this crap any more. It's all nonsense. Nothing important is said, and when something important is said, it's obfuscated by a bunch of other bullshit.

Hey kids, make sure you strap yourselves in, keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times. The road to tyranny is a bit bumpy. Let's hope someone decides on a detour before it's too late. I don't like that particular vacation destination. I prefer the French Pyrenees by far.

  1. Greetings, my friend; nice to hear from you again. And it's nice to see that you have survived in Texas which is a world just a bit madder than any other world!

    Dontcha just love that guv of yours? He shore knows what he's doing. Why in just a couple of days now he's said again that Obama is a socialist and is involved in a war against religion (er, Christianity). What a smart feller is the Rev. Mr. Perry.

    I'd say pray he'd go away but damn, prayer doesn't work!

    Good luck! My son lives in Texas still (we got out 25 years ago) and I'm afraid the nutcases are messing with his head..

  2. Thank you :)

    Did you know that Texas was a blue state before the Republicans redistricted it? Did you know that Perry himself was a democrat? He's nothing more than a pandering career politician who will cater to whoever or whatever he thinks will get him into power. I don't believe that he believes anything he says. It's a good thing the real power here in Texas is the Railroad Commission and not the governor.

    That's the problem with our system of government. There are no term limits. Career politicians will wreck a system, no matter how good it is, no matter what checks and balances there are. Career politicians attract corruption like deer guts attract wild pigs.

    I actually like living in Texas, but then we live out in the country and at least one of our neighbors are liberal progressives. We're thinking of getting some chickens, maybe a cow, and telling the rest of the world to go to hell. Or letting it go to hell, whatever comes first.
