Lots of controversial stuff has been said in the New York Times this week. I don't know where to begin.
Sometimes the thinking is like some kid moving toy blocks around.
So obvious, and so obviously dopey. I'm sorry, the Republicans have it dead wrong (bass-ackwards), and the Democrats are clueless. Except Kucinich, of course. I think he's just being a Democrat to be nice to those guys. None of these guys are even close to an answer. Old news repeating itself.
Let me off this train, filled with clichés...
Why are these jokers writing opinion pieces when they haven't had a new thought since 1968?
Same old, same old. New people in the journalism jobs, but sifting and repeating the same old history.
Politics is dead.
It's the -ism of the last century.
An -ism that killed off a lot of people, in it's onerous parental form: governmentalism
With an emphasis on mental.
Those who think that a new politician (or system of government) will fix things haven't been paying attention.
It doesn't matter who you elect.
It matters who you are.
And we haven't been much, collectively, lately.
note: those who believe in Democracy have the wrong belief system. Democracy is a system, not an answer to prayer. You don't need democracy to have happy societies. You need happy people. You can't vote that in.
