If You Don't Stop It, You'll Go Blind

Or, wait. . . um, you'll go mad. Mad, I mean. Something. So, stop it right now. You know what you're doing and you need to STOP IT!

You're thinking, aren't you?

Thinking, considering, positing, pondering (thanks for the lovely card, Jean!), and cogitating.

Stop it, for now. Relax. Enjoy what you have and then, on December 26th, you'd best get your butt in gear and seriously consider whether or not being forced to buy health insurance will effectively put your tight budget in the negative and wonder whether the Poverty Level will have to be raised by at least $600 per month, just to catch all the borderline week-to-week poor that will never be able to afford it and maintain their eked out, but still independent, existence.

Huh. Just think about it, later, --not now, after Christmas-- but consider that some things will possibly become necessary: Welfare will have to be defined up, not down; what a legacy for Obama! I can't wait for those hockey-stick graphs that show the number of people on Welfare skyrocketing, thus cascading the crises into a hell-with-it exasperation at the sheer tangle of need and greed and well, shoot up here amongst us, cuz one of us needs relief.

Speaking of shooting: at least we can shoot the stupid greedy fuckers that break into our home to steal from us. Congressmen? Not so much. More's the pity.

Why not? I'm ready to give a medal to the person who takes out a Congressweasel that voted for this piece of shit. I can guarantee that no jury will ever convict them.

Open season, just two or three days a year, is all I ask. Until then the first Tuesday in November will have to do.

Not so fast on the burglar-shooting. It depends on what state you're in (I think).

Massachussetts: If you don't kill him, he'll put in for worker's comp and sue your whatever.

Texas: Open season.

A few other places: just drag the body inside before the police get there.

England: You have to serve him tea and cookies, otherwise he'll file a complaint.

Here's the thing: if there's anything left of this country by the next election, we just might have a chance. If there isn't, or if we miss that chance, forget it. Forget it all. Start taking Marx pills and memorizing Das Kapital. And think of "money" as someone else's.
