ENTRY 0004, OCTOBER 8, 2003

Aw, Fuck!

I can't believe that the "people have spoken" and we get another moron in office.  Haven't we learned our lesson?   Apparently not.  We (I am speaking as the "average american") do not put a whole lot of effort or thought into a lot of what we do.  We don't want to take the time to actually do the research needed to make a truly informed vote.  Instead, the A.A. has decided to listen to 10-second soundbites and vote for popularity.  This might be okay for the average highschool, but when it comes to anything that really matters, like local, state or federal level, we need to have a teeny bit more. 

Arnold was elected simply because he is well known, and was able to manipulate the people, with the complicity of the media.  He never said anything of substance, never revealed anything  close to a plan, like real candidates should do.  Instead he gave us platitudes and said things like "It's time to clean house!" as he grabbed a broom, or "I'll say 'Hasta la vista, baby!' to the deficit."  So, that's what the people voted for.  That's what they wanted.  And that's what they got.  The next three years will be interesting.

As the Chinese proverb goes, "May you live in interesting times."  We are so there...

Want to learn what is actually going on, and what the far right is up to?  So do I.  I don't know for sure.  But I can tell they are lying to us.  If you want to find out more, I suggest you check out this book:
