Dear America,

what THE HELL is wrong with your politicians? I was under the impression that politicians were supposed to be two-faced and fastidious, but not - what's the word? - ah, yes! Pure evil.

I'm having serious (and I mean <EMBOSS>serious</EMBOSS>) trouble understanding how it could possibly be possible for, what is it - 41? - Republicans (out of how many, again? 50?) to not only oppose, but vote against the 9/11 health bill on grounds of a 2-3% (it was from 37 to 39%, wasn't it?) tax increase for anyone who makes over $250K a year.

Not only that, but how the hell can a country function on the basis of "we will repeal any proposal put forth unless the richest 2% of the population can save 2% on their income in taxes"?

I'm sorry, but this simply doesn't make sense - not only the fact that such a situation can even exist, but the fact that such a stance could possibly be so unanimous. I apologize for the emphases in this post - I've been following the situation for something like a week now and dogs inheriting $12M and 37-year-old men masturbating in the back row of a Harry Potter movie aren't cutting it any more.

What is the critical piece I'm missing here? Am I just stupid? Too altruistic? Please help me.


The funniest part... Fox News, the #1 news org in the country, actually left out the part that the Republicans voted against it and actually implied that it was the Democrats who voted it down!


This is my official exit from caring about politics. This country is too stupid to deserve a good government, so I'm not going to waste any more time trying to show the ignorant how the media misleads them every step of the way into voting against their own interests.

America, you're on your own.
