No “Obsession” today – just a simple statement

You know, I should be as happy as a clam today about the Republicans gaining control of both Houses.

I’m white and American due to a happy accident of birth, and white people are now free from oppression.

I’m not a woman, and won’t need an abortion ever, unlike the terrified-of-telling-her-parents 16-year-old who has as much business having a child as I do having an aircraft carrier.

I’m retired, so I don’t have to worry about the system being gamed for big business and against people who work for a living.

I have insurance, so I don’t have to worry about going into bankruptcy to pay for a hospital stay.

I have a nice 401K, and the stock market is booming.

I’m a man, so I also don’t have to worry about being paid less for my work, or treated like a second-class citizen and being told to go make someone a sammich.

I’m not gay, so I don’t have to worry about being told who I can love and marry, and who I can’t.

I’ve got it pretty good.

One would think I would be a Republican, if I was only in it for myself.
But I’m not.

I’m in it for all the non-white, female, working stiff, uninsurable, living paycheck-to-paycheck, LGBT, stabbed in the back by “Right To Work” people in this country.

And I don’t feel like I have to get mine by stepping on the backs of others to get it.

 

See you good people next Monday.

  1. we just have to wait for the next census for the democrats NOT to completely lie down to gerrymandering. the democrats are still playing bean bag.

  2. Thanks, people – I felt a bit like Charles Foster Kane issuing his “Declaration Of Principles”, but it needed to be said.

    When I posted this last week on Facebook, I was immediately jumped by a Republican who yelped like a kicked dog complaining I was trying to say that I was more moral than him.

    I answered “If the foo shits…..”
