You Would Think...

You would think...that in a country where diabetes is an epidemic, there would be a major initiative to reduce it.

You would think...that in a country with little knowledge of the world, there would be a rising tide of voices to combat "belly button vision".

You would think...that in a country where less than half the adults are working, there would be a push to community service.

You would think...that in a country with the murder rate at 19 killed a week, there would would be a concerted effort to reduce the carnage.

You would think...that in a country where politicians are brazenly stealing Our taxes, at least one of the 19 killed last week would be an elected thief.

You would think...that in a country where taxes are lotteries that have 75% of the winnings unclaimed, there would be a strong movement to reduce the tax itself.

You would think...that in a country where the electrical system is held together by spit and tape--and overtime to under-qualified baboons--there would be a true plan for restructuring.

You would think...that in a country where the water system leaks like a ragged sock and cannot provide 100% service ever, there would be a focused re-engineering development already in place.

You would think...that in a country where the national debt has surpassed national revenue, there would be a mass of people--say, voters--ready to drop the hammer on the unethical and disgusting vermin who perpetrated the damage.

You would think...any of this was on the verge of happening. You would think.

And that's all you would do.


The Jenius Has Spoken.

You would think that people vote for progress. Then you'd think that what we have is democracy and not a simple choice between the foremen offered by those who really have control. And no, I'm no conspiracy/truther nut. Elections remind me of a comedy hit of the 90's, Dumb and Dumber.

Elections have become the business of manipulation, from the messages sent between voting periods to the voting process itself. I'm still on the side of "ballots before bullets," but barely. Oftentimes, those in power, the bullies who think they can get away with anything, need to be hurt--badly--before they give up their abuses. I'll make it clear: I want to hurt them badly.
