Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they’re sure trying to do so, it’s going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can’t and won’t compromise. I know, I’ve tried to deal with them.
So tonight (actually yesterday, since we’re past midnight) President Obama fulfilled his constitutional obligation to inform Congress about the state of the Union. I’m boycotting the event to catch an episode of The Sopranos.
He shall from time to time give to Congress information of the State of the Union and recommend to their Consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.
— Article II, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution
There’s nothing in there that says it has to be a two-hour posturing feast for President and Congress alike. Obama could have sent an email memo to all the members of Congress, or posted a 10-minute video on YouTube and be done with it. I know what will be said; I could have written the speech myself. I know how the opposition will react, I know how the GOP presidential wannabes will spin it to make Obama look like Pol Pot and I know what the talking heads will say. It’s Washington showboating as usual. I just can’t be bothered right now.
So, tonight we find out who the next President of The United States of America will be. Buh-bye, Obama!
No? Oh, it’s the first in a series of GOP primaries to determine who Obama’s opponent will be in November.
Oh wait, it’s the latest (but, alas, not the last) act in that traveling freak show of liars, gangsters, corporate stooges and spineless fucktards who believe the world would be a better place if only he/she were in control. Never mind.
I just set up ogndy.wordpress.com as a feder blog for OGNDY.com. I thought my introductory post was funny, so I’m re-posting it here.
This is just an introductory post to let everyone know about my REAL blog, OGNDY.com – The Truth About Everything. I’ll be posting the occasional teaser post here on my WordPress blog, but the sole reason for ogndy.wordpress.com is to be a feeder for the REAL thing. So go ahead and bookmark OGNDY.com right away; you know you will sooner or later.
The following is just some random text to get the spiders started. My apologies if you feel you were lured here by false pretense. A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do. Thanks for your time.
