Why Politics Piss Us Off.

19 07 2009

Politics. When people hear that word they might as well have heard the air raid sirens because everyone seems to always run away in fear that the non-exsisten radiation from the topic will seep into the their skins and morph them into a monster, or worse–a politician. It’s a sad fact to be honest seeing as how its oh I don’t know, the thing that allows us to live in a “stable” society (and I used the word “stable” loosly). With the past election of Obama and the current situation with the New York State Senate, politicis have been the topic of discussion more now than ever. I was in a Barns and Noble rcently and I over heard of some people talking about obama, I recall one women saying that, and I quote “Obama would have all the ‘little guys’ cutting their wrists” over how he was going to handle small businesses. I’m gonna go out on a limb hear guess her vote didn’t go to the Big “O”, but hey everyone is intitled to their opinion. My neighbor had told me that she had heard that if obama got elected presiden that “We wouldn’t have freedom of speech” which she claims to have heard on the radio, which I can only assume is somewhere in one of the many rooms her very expensive custom designed house has, that her husband (an architect) designed for them, and their large annual salery to relax in. If may have hit you that I’m on the liberal/democratic side of things but ya know what I like to look at both sides, I don’t side with one party because of a name or color. The whole deal with the NY Senate is pissing me off. It’s a waste of time, and I honestly have no idea what’s going on. Not even the Media seems to know what’s goin on. All I hear is “power struggle” and “coup'”. What the hell is this the french revolution!? Like seriously it’s only a ‘coup’ if you have radical extreamist beating the crap out of each other with what ever they can get their hands on. And as for power struggle, oh please these people are just pissed off because they’re party isn’t in power anymore, but ya know what, there’s something I just learned about that’s supposed to stop things like this from ever happening. IT’S CALLED TEAM WORK!!!!! another word might be COMPROMISE!!! Good god seriously I will never understand the art/science behind how a politician works. I mean anyone can sit back and make other peoples lives difficult while accepting gifts from lobbyiests. Psh I can do that. But ya know what in all honesty If I was a politician I would not take a bribe from a lobbiyest from the tabacco companies who tries to get me to vote against a bill that will keep kids away from smoking. Not even just smoking companies but any bribes. I say bribes and not gifts because they arent gifts. A gift is when someone goes out of their way to get you something. A bribe is when someone gives you something so that you do/or dont do something. I think Obama is one of the first politicians who I can remember that is trying to get done what he’s said he’d get done. I don’t expect the economy to be fixed over night, or affordable health care to spring up like weeds (though if it did that would be good) but at least he’s trying. He’s trying to plan for the future instead of living in the moment which I think is good. Though some people still don’t seem to understand his job is hard. They say he’s not trying hard enough. I’d like to see anyone else try his job—except Sarah Plain. He is trying, the peopel who aren’t trying are the politicians in congress and the house who constantly bicker over every small detail. I recently spoke to a friend of mine who told me he and his wife don’t have health care. I pray nothing happens to them because if something does and he doesn’t have any, well then I hope that every politician out there, democrat and republican alike who has done one thing or another that has caused the delay of affordable health care feels responsible. While you people are flying your private jets to meetings when you could be flying economy or while your at one of your multiple houses relaxing knowing you and your family are prepared for the worst, millions out there have nothing but hope that nothing happens to them. God forbid they should get ill and loose their job. Right now a job is one of the American citizen’s most vauable things. If I was obama or the president in general, I would walk up into the NY State Senate and be frank with them. I’d walk into the house and congress as well and say it like it is. “Look you guys are being complete and total idiots. I bet if you guys tried you couldn’t get along well or let alone get something done. Dems, your living up to the reason your symbol is a donkey, and repubs, no wonder your symbol is the elephant, your egos and ideas of yourselves are the size of one.” Screw being politically correct, why does it matter if it gets stuff done!? Look at countries around the world they’re political systems are not as “correct” as ours but hell they get stuff done. Look at france. Their president just openly assulted the idea of middle eastern women wearing burkas, but they have free health care!!! Something just doesn’t add up there. *SIGH* I ‘ve written 959 words as of now and i still feel like I’m getting no where. If I could have one super power right now it would be to be able to walk thru walls so I could by pass security at the NY state assembly and say it like it is to those politcians. Only problem is no would be there and secuirty would probably let me in so that way they’d at least have someone in their assembly room.

Obama’s first 100 Days! (^_^)

4 05 2009
Yahoo! We made it! We still have 1360 more days until his re-election!

Yahoo! We made it! We still have 1360 more days until his re-election!

Well we’ve finally made it. Obama’s first 100 days. As my friendput it to me in a text message this weekend, “50 years ago they said  black man would be president when pigs fly–and look 100 days later swine flu!!!”. Now of course my friend was just kidding as we’re both liberals (and proud of it!). I would have to say for the most part I think Obama’s doing a pretty good job. He’s really showing that he means to get down to business. He’s been making it known that he wants to get America back on track and put aside the past conflicts and move to a brighter future. Now there are some things that I don’t totally agree on, such as the giant economic packages he’s passing–though I mean I’m not completely against it. I think we’ll need money to jump start our economy but I don’t think we should throw out hundreds of billions. Though I think with him we have a good chance at seeing free health care and other perks that much of the majors nations in our world have. I recently sent a letter to the white house because Obama’s on my list of people to meet in my life. Hopefully I’ll get a response, and if I don’t I’ll just send another letter (^_^). Well I wanna know what you all think of Obama’s first 100 days. Remember keep it clean!

Well, well, well number five in out series of brawl look-a-likes. I seriously didn’t expect to get this far. For number five, we feel it’s Mike Huckabee’s turn. Though Huckabee bears no real physical resemblance or similarities with the Pokemon Trainer, there is one big thing they have in common; the devotion of their followers. By followers I don’t mean voters or supporters. I’ll give you a simple analogy to show what I mean

Squirtle, Ivysaure, and Charzard are to Pokemon Trainer as Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, and Conan O’Brien are to Mike Hucabee. I mean seriously, if you watched The Daily Show, Colbert Report, or Conan O’Brien you would have noticed that they were “devoted” to Hucabee. They even had fights over who “created” him. I think it was a Jon Stewart Stephen Colbert combination (^_^)

I Choose You! Jon Stewart!

Wow! I actually made it to number four in our series of look-a-likes…never the less time to see whose turn it is to be in the hot seat. How about someone whose an expert when it comes to being in the hot seat? I think it’s our presidents turn don’t you think? It’s so sad that he has that title, Bush probably can’t even spell it. And with intellect such as that (or lack there of) I think I found the perfect character to compare Bush to. Yes that’s right, King Dedede. Similarities include intellect level, style of ruling their respective lands. For those of you who don’t know, King Dedede rules Dreamland in the Kirby series, while Bush rules America, a once Dreamland…Also they both have that same weird goofy smile on their face. The face that a child who just used the potty for the first time gets. Also if watch the show “Kirby Right Back at Ya” you’ll know Dedede’s temper and how he has tendency to take action into his own hands with his mallet. Now bush on the other hand is the complete opposite. The last time that man took action on his own was 5 years ago, and look at where we are now. While that may not be a similarity, it’s something Bush could learn to do. It would be right on his level, watching cartoons and learning! Though he might have difficulty with the second part we’ll try…

All in favor of having a mindless duck with a mallet rule your land say I--oh wait our's already is...

Republicans Support Obama!

13 08 2008

No it’s no joke. 3 Republicans are now endorsing Obama for president. The 3 Republicans are James Leach, a former U.S. representative from Iowa, and Lincoln Chafee, a former U.S. senator from Rhode Island — along with Rita Hauser, a prominent fund-raiser for President George W. Leach said that, “Thousands of other Republicans are going to be picking country over party in this election”. And that makes sense. If you’ve been picking who you vote for by simply flipping a coin, or if they wear or don’t wear an American flag pin on their lapel, you need to wake up and smell the Co2–even if it has no smell. This is a very crucial time in our Nations history. We have wars going on, pollution, global warming, melting of the polar ice caps, an addiction to oil thats as bad as an addiction to crack, not to mention probably the world’s most incompetent leader, and so many more problems that just thinking about make my pessimistic views more than I can bear! Now some of you “true Republicans”, yes you know who you are, might still be shocked that Republicans are actually supporting Obama. Don’t worry it doesn’t make that much of a difference. Instead of McCain loosing the presidency by 1000 votes, he’ll now loose by 1003. Not that much of a difference.

Second in our series of Brawl character look-a-likes is a man (just barely) I’m sure you all know and love. I’ll give you a few hints. He’s old, he’s had 4 heat attacks, he’s pure evil, he shot his friend in the face. Yep that’s right its none other than…Dick Cheney! We here at the Daily Pessimist think that our good ol’ pal Dick most resembles the evil Bowser! Similarities include face as well as goals. Bowser’s always trying to thwart Mario and capture Princess Peach. Dick on the other hand wants to stop the Democrats (Mario) and take over America (Princess Peach). One other major similarity is they Both breath fire…wait no sorry Cheney just has a bad case of Heartburn. Seriously aside all funny business if you can’t see the similarities you’re either blind or Dick Cheney.

The idea just came to me a few minutes ago. I have decided to do a short series of post comparing Politicians to Super Smash Bros Brawl Characters. Each day I will talk about one candidate and how they are similar to the character. If you have any suggestion for comparisons let me know!

First up is Hilliary Clinton. Oh please, you knew it was comin’. With her emotions high and tears building up, she was able to show us her soft-human side. But when it came time to campaign and show whose the boss she certainly did. With the ability to flip-flop personalities in an instant we think Hilliary Clinton is most like…

A beautiful normal women by day...A dark shadowy ninja at night. Which do you want to answer the phone at 3 am?

Zelda: A beautiful, soft normal women by day. Sheik: A dark shadowy ninja at night. Which do you want to answer the white house phone at 3 am?
