If I don't have anything good to say then shut it, right?
Well I just hadn't woke up yet, I'll think of something good. For instance the letters yesterday were good.
It sounded like from Nell that several good phone calls came in yesterday as well. I know she was, is, in a very bad, sad place. Who wouldn't be?
I saw the news yesterday while working. I'm certain everyone saw that Obama Care is constitutional. Ever since the Supreme Court upheld that corporations are people and can give as much money to politicians as it takes to lead said politicians around by their noses (balls) I want nothing to do with any of them. I'll not vote ever again, and I will tell all my friends to not vote ever again as well. This is Brian's political contribution for the election year of 2012. Unless of course this corporatism ends and We the People have our votes mean something. This seems unlikely.
None of it probably matters anyway. The way I heard it on the news is people who can afford insurance will have to buy it. I guess Obama hasn't been listening: I'll yell it just for the Hell of it: NO ONE CAN AFFORD ANYTHING, MOTHER FUCKER!!!
Indeed, it with a cynical tone I say the insurance companies weren't satisfied with mandatory automobile insurance, now we're ordered to buy health insurance? How the Hell is this supposed to help anyone? "It helps the insurance companies," Nell said this morning. Corporations are people so… The old Monte Python skit about how to scientifically determine if a witch is really a witch:(excerpt) Witch's burn, we know this: Wood burns, therefor witches must be made of wood! Simple, just like us.
Wait, I was going to find something good to write about. Maybe this will be the straw that broke the camels back. This could be good. I mean how much more bullshit are dumb ass Americans going to take?
Apparently quite a bit more.
I can't wait for the veggies in our garden to get big enough to eat. Our debit card will only allow $200 per purchase. (this is like the witch thing again) I had to keep my food purchases at WalMart below that. Want to know how far the corporations are going to push us? Go to the grocery store. Try if you can, to remember how much an apple cost last year. Well I can tell you this much, today, all fruit costs the same, 2 for $5. I bought Nell and Danny two beef steaks, the first meat I've bought in almost a year. Anyway, all veggies, fruit, bread, coffee ice cream, pet food and juice, and it came out to $189.99. Funny, right?
WalMart's motto ought to read: Bend your dumb ass over, we're coming in for all you've got.
That ain't the way the corporations do things though is it? They are way more sneaky. Buy Green, buy American, buy all this shit, we'll all be happier.
Do people even remember where food comes from?
Last night we felt a few sprinkles. This is the teasing stage of the drought. We're watering our garden twice a day. I know most people here in the southwest can't do this because of water use restrictions. We feel guilty about it, but still we feel a food garden is survival. Also we may just die of malnutrition if we have to go back to WalMart very many more times, what with their agribusiness mass produced nutrient deficient food.
Looks aren't everything
Cynically speaking from my weary heart, "Have a good weekend."
