Hold up! Double dribble! Time out! Flag on the play! Personal foul! Let's all agree that Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sarah Palin belong to that self-righteous, hypocritical and outright lying sack a -ish political party and move on. While these two have certainly opened their mouths a few times too many, I say they can't help it. I'm not defending them, I'm just saying, when you live a sheltered life, you tend to think inside the proverbial box. We shouldn't expect them to up and all of a sudden open up their minds and abandon their beliefs just because they are wrong. OK, yes we can. In the event that the GOP wins the White House, ya'll do realize they're taking it all back, right? When I say all, I mean all. There won't be anymore right to choose whether or not you want to have an abortion. They're going to start teaching creationism in the schools. Everybody is going to have a gun. There won't be any jobs. On top of that, there won't be any sort of "assistance" in the form of Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, Food Stamps - none of that. Granted, it will take some doing to get rid of all of that, but you think they're not going to try? We live in a capitalist society which means that there are the buyers and the sellers. Sadly, the sellers have basically got the buyers on a hook, forever. Forever ever, Forever eva! Now, with that said, buyers and sellers are the only two classes that exist under a Republican regime. Who of the two have the most money? Sellers. Why? Because they've got all your money. So, the question now is, what do you do when you've got ungodly amounts of money and you want to keep buying shit and dodging the taxes? You make sure politicians are in your pocket. See, politicians don't make any money. In fact, they don't make nearly enough for the crap they go through. That is precisely why they take money, trips and whatever other perks they can to take care of their wealthy friends because their wealthy friends take care of them. And, I even know a way to tell them from us. They all look alike - well, almost all of them. There's always an exception to the rule. Whether they are black, white, Asian, Hispanic or whatever, they all look the same. Think I'm lying, go to YouTube and pull up some clips form their convention. Everybody there wore the same blue, black, gray and pinstriped suit. They almost always wore a red or re and blue tie with a flag lapel pin. There was no diversity and when they did show people of color, it was the same 30 - 10 blacks, 10 Asians and 10 Hispanics. As a party, they lack diversity and depth. Think about, a group's representative, i.e. the candidate, reflects the party. Why wouldn't it be safe to assume that the whole of the GOP isn't a split group of honary, old people who growl when they talk who want to go to war with the world and a arrogant, self-righteous, allegedly racist overly religious nuts with annoying voices? I know, it's not right to box all Republicans into one group because of their political party but until they prove their diversity to me, I will continue to chant my late grandmother's mantra, "people judge you by the company you keep." So true, so true!
