Sigh. A Few Thoughts for Today

This is gonna be short. Whatever it is that I've been suffering is still very much with me and the antibiotics didn't work and, if anything, I'm getting worse. There's also a lot of other stuff that isn't helping and I'm getting seriously depressed.

I don't think I need to tell you how disappointed I am in Obama and since others, more gifted than I in such analysis, have weighed in loudly and clearly. That said, my "audacity of hope" has left the building and my president has abandoned me. I shouldn't be surprised. I honestly can't remember the last time I truly had confidence and trust in my government. Any hope -- and there wasn't a lot -- for the future of myself and other elders' who aren't rich -- is gone. And that, my friends, is the bottom line. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont is one of my heroes and he really lays it on the line here:



I did, however, find this video by Tom Chapin and friends that gave me a giggle and I think is a suggestion that's long overdue:



Here are the lyrics:

GO AWAY, SARAH PALIN, GO AWAY
YOUVE HAD MORE AIR TIME THAN BRITTANY OR O.J.
YOUR IDEAS WERE UNSPECIFIC,
BUT YOUR OUTFITS WERE TERRIFIC
GO AWAY, SARAH PALIN, GO AWAY

GO AWAY, SARAH PALIN, PASS THE TORCH
GO ON BACK TO WATCHING RUSSIA FROM YOUR PORCH
YOU HELPED OUT WITH THE ELECTION
THANKS, McCAIN, FOR YOUR SELECTION
GO AWAY, SARAH PALIN, GO AWAY

GO AWAY, SARAH PALIN, IT'S GOOD-BYE
YOU SAID ANY OPEN DOOR WAS WORTH A TRY
WELL, HERE'S YOUR OPEN DOOR
LET ME SHOW YOU WHAT IT'S FOR
GO AWAY, SARAH PALIN, GO AWAY

GO AWAY, SARAH PALIN, CUT IT LOOSE
GO ON BACK TO HUNTING WOLVES AND DRESSING MOOSE
AND WE HOPE THAT WHEN YOU GO THERE,
IT'S YOUR FINAL BRIDGE TO NOWHERE
GO AWAY, SARAH PALIN, GO AWAY

WE'VE STILL GOT TINA FEY
SHE WAS BETTER, ANYWAY
GO AWAY, SARAH PALIN, GO AWAY

With that, I'm outta here!!!

Hope y'all are having a great day!!!!!

Happy Blogging!!!!!!

  1. I share your sentiments, only I very much want Sarah Palin to stay around and run for president because who better to energize the Democrats and Independents than she? Since we have no hope of a Democrat with any guts ever running, we seriously need the Republicans to do something stupid.

  2. LOL.... I don't recall laughing that hard before 6:00 am in many a year. Loved the video!!!

    Certainly hope you get to feeling better and as to the tax issue, it seems obvious, at least to me, that he is already starting his run for re-election and like most politicians, will take whatever path is required to accomplish that goal.

  3. Kay, why don't you see a different doctor and get a 2nd opinion? What have you got to lose?

    As for Obama, I still like him and intend to vote for him again.

  4. This was such a fantastic video about Sarah Palin. I wish, wish, wish she would go away. Granted she might make it easier for Democrats but there are a significant amount of uneducated Americans who will vote for her. Sigh...

  5. seems to me that Obama has adopted Sarah's "any open door" idea

    what we need now is a true progressive democrat to step in and start running against him -- NOW!

    I'd find a way to help someone that does

    as for trusting my government? well, that sort of died when I was about 13 -- in Dallas -- Nov 1963

  6. OH MY GOD...I have a brand new favorite song Kay. I've said the same thing so many times; but hearing it put to music....funny...and devine. If only she would just 'go away.'

  7. Snow: Excellent point! The only Democrat with any cojones or sense is Marcy Kaptur! And Independent Bernie Sanders would be a great president but I doubt he he is that crazy. And I think the GOP just did something stupid -- Mr. ManTan (Boehner) is gonna be House Speaker.

    Alan: Thanks!!!!!! I thought it fun!!!! I'll be okay once they figure out what's wrong.

    gigi: It's not her fault the antibiotics didn't work. When a president has no concern for the little people, I want his head. Maybe you're rich and don't care.
    I live on a very tight budget and can't afford everything going up except my income.

    Kay: The polls show that people are getting fed up with her antics. And her lies are catching up with her.

    Bev: I hear you loud and clear.
    I hope Bernie filibusters.

  8. I was in agreement with you regarding Obama, feeling very disillusioned. Until I read this blog post, "Shads of Grey".

    I am withholding judgment on the president for the time being. Do read the post, it would be interesting to hear what you think.

  9. I'm hanging in there with Obama, but I think he needs to tell the Democrats in the House and Senate "how the cow ate the cabbage" in no uncertain terms. Many of them have fought him as hard as the Republicans, and have made it very difficult for him to get a lot of what he wanted. They have only themselves to blame.

  10. well i hope you went back into see her and have your lungs checked to be sure you don't have viral pneumonia. Sometimes hospitalization is required to get over such things. There is also a thing that my husband had which was chronic bronchitis and that's not a virus or a bacterial thing but there is a treatment for it; so go in and see your doctor or doctors if required.

  11. I think it's unrealistic to expect someone to come in and make things right after their being wrong for so long. I've seen really good people who were finally getting their feet on solid ground defeated by the mess their predecessor left---wouldn't it be nice if after there'd been a leader of conspicuous stupidity or evil, the next leader would have at least as much time to fight the results.

  12. Well at least Sara isn't too hard on the eyes . Here in good ol Canada we have a Prime Minister wannabe the grandson of a Russian Count that has a hard time controlling the perpetual sneer on his face.
