Me, during my early, Nation of Islam phase.
For the convenience of you the customer, here is main reason that political discourse in America is completely fucked up
condensed into one, helpful graph.
The Centrism of "Both Sides Do It!" is the spider hole into which the Pig People scuttle every time another tenet of their loathsome ideology blows up in their face.
Of course, if you are still a Conservative in the Year of Our Lord 2012, I expect nothing better. Your are a cultural dead-loss and beyond redemption and while the rest of us may be required to share a country with you, we are under no obligation to treat you with anything other than contempt.
But the Pig People would be nothing but a minor nuisance -- a boil on the ass of democracy -- without their Centrists who keep the "Both Sides Do It" spider hole well-furnished and open for business. Pound for pound, Centrism is the biggest and most debilitating lie in American politics bar none. It is the Big Lie that makes all the little lies possible, which is why I focus so hard on those who traffic in it. They are the ones most vulnerable to and terrified of being called out in public. They are the ones we must run out of the media on a rail.
More on why I picked 1972 next time.
For now -- now that the errands are run, the cat has been to the vet (busted molar, minor surgery Monday), the lad has gotten his hair cut, the laundry is done (OK, it's never done-done, but the mountain has been molehilled), bills (mostly) paid, necessity-shopping completed, and everyone is fed -- I'm off to spend the remains of the day splashing around in a pool with the family.
Unemployed or not, the fact that I am one lucky SOB does manage to penetrate my thick Irish skull every now and then :-)
