Coming Attractions For May 2013

And it's almost May. Wow, how time flies by, right? Okay, so here we are. What to do, what to do? Oh, May should be a good month. I don't know why, just color me optimistic. And while you're coloring, remember to stay inside the lines and check out the menu for the merry old month of May.

Oh, one more thing, have I got a surprise for all of you on May 20th.

I'm losing control and I want you to know I'm fighting fire with fire.

I won't let them take me alive! 


May 1st, 2013 - "Hate The Hate"


What the world needs now, is love, sweet love. All we are saying is "Give peace a chance". People of the world sing out and join hands, start a love train. C'mon people now, smile on your brother everybody get together, try and love one another right now. We are the world, we are the children, we are the ones who make a brighter day so let's start giving. Hey, just hate the hate. Okay? 


May 6th, 2013 - "GenX Says: Part One"


This may be the most fun I ever had putting together a post. GenX (Amanda) says a lot, and so does her bully friends, but they never seem to present anything to back it up. (Oh, except for one thing.) And what is this about lesbian pedophiles? GenX, you need to step off girlfriend.

Oh snap.

Don't miss this hilarious look at a hate blog full of lies. (And yes, I prove it right from the get go with actual screenshots.) Imagine that! LOL

It's the Bay of Pigs all over again.

I'm beginning to think that GenX and her friends have a foot fetish ... because they sure love placing theirs into their mouths. Aahahahahahahaha

Seriously though, like, check it out.


May 11th, 2013 - "Carroll Bryant - Reflection"


Guaranteed not to rip, rot, rust, bust, drip, run down your leg, and or smell bad for a period of fifty feet or five minutes. Whichever comes first.

You got my word on that!


May 13th, 2013 - "Pictures Of Carz"


Some pictures of me. Duh. LOL Because you (the people) requested it. On a good note, in this post, I prove Amanda Welling wrong yet again. (Without even trying) Ha-ha. Funny how life just works that way. Anyhow, it's about time I post some pictures of myself, right? Well, as the saying goes, "All things in time." 


May 17th, 2013 - "Secret Sauce"


This is like that time when you were sitting comfortably in your recliner chair on Thanksgiving Day after eating half a bird with all the trimmings and gravy, and two pies, one pumpkin, the other pecan. You're watching the afternoon football game and as always, Detroit is getting the crap kicked out them and you fell into a slight slumber only to be pulled out of it by a pain in your mid-region. You fear it to be a stroke coming on or a heart-attack, either way, your bird is cooked. 

You start to panic, as is the typical protocol of such indigestion and you cry out to your better half, "Martha, I got chest pains. Call the doctor. Call the hospital. Call the ambulance. Call somebody for Christs sake."

Your world starts to spin radically out of control. You are rushed through the emergency doors on a gurney when you over-hear someone say "Get him to O.R. stat!" 

You're being rolled down a hallway. The ceiling lights flip by one after the other as you lay there in some kind of hypnotic like state with an oxygen mask over your face and your life flashing by and all you can think to yourself is, "I'm gonna die. I'm a goner." 

Fortunately, someone in the crowd suggests giving you a few tests first before slicing you open. It's a good thing too because it only takes a few hours and the next thing you know, you're in and out with nothing more than knowing that all you had was a bad case of the gas. Nothing a good healthy burp or barnyard nasty toot out of the backside wouldn't cure. 

Yeah, it's kind of like that only .... without all the medical expenses.


May 20th, 2013 - "Surprise, Surprise, Surprise "


It's a surprise post, but trust me, you're not going to want to miss this.
Heads will roll (again) I tell ya!

Hey! I said it's a surprise.
No peeking.


May 25th, 2013 - "Issues And Tissues: Carroll Bryant Interviews The Bullies"


Ever wondered how an interview with the bullies would look like? Well, wonder no more. You're about to find out. Warning: Reading this could result in milk squirting from out of your nose. Provided of course, you're drinking milk while you read this.

Money Is The Maker

MONEY IS THE MAKER - Written by Carroll Bryant

Money is the maker and I am the taker

Money is the maker and I am the taker

You can have your planet because I don’t want it

You can take your government and you know where you can shove it

All of the misery that all of you bring to me

You make life so sickening because all of you are saying

That money is the maker and I am the taker

Money is the maker and I am the taker

Can’t you see what you are doing to me?

I can’t believe all the insecurity

You can buy your treason and make up your reason

You’re making it so blatant in how you make decisions

From here to eternity – trying just to buy a dream

Happiness comes for free while all of you are paying

Money is the maker and I am the taker

Money is the maker and I am the taker

Can’t you see what we really need?

I can’t believe all of the hypocrisy

So, if you want it – go ahead you can have it

Better heed the warning come one final morning

Can’t you see what it’s doing to me?

I can’t believe all the insecurity

Money is the maker and I am the taker

Money is the maker and I am the taker

Money is the maker and I am the taker

Money is the maker and I am the taker

Money is the maker and I am the taker

Jude Henderson (Elsa Hernandez) / Spike Lee

Something was recently brought to my attention. A post made by one of the hate blogs created in my honor. I am not going to name the blog because I already know the driving forces behind them. (Amanda Welling and Jude Henderson a.k.a. Elsa Hernandez)

Anyhow, this particular post on one of the blogs is titled: "Doc Dropping Is Not Cool: Part 2" and it reads as follows:

"I ran into another piece of information I wanted to share while researching another article. I've read other comments that Carroll Bryant has made in various places that he doesn't doc drop or that he believes it's wrong. As I stumble on these comments I will post them as references in this article. There is a lot of information to sift through. This comment he made on his personal blog appears to display otherwise."

Here is a screenshot of it.

Then they post this screenshot from my "Carroll Bryant Blog" where I make this comment.

 Will someone please tell me what this comment has to do with doc dropping? Or is it that Jude and Amanda think that by me potentially posting pictures of Jude, that is doc dropping?

First of all, doc dropping is the posting of personal information. NOT posting pictures that can easily be accessed from the internet and social websites. Posting pictures do not reveal ones address or phone number or social security number or anything of the sort. There is a huge difference. For example, this next screenshot from Amanda Wellings hate blog, "GenXpose".

You see, that is doc dropping. And yes, Amanda Welling practices this behavior.

However, the article about me doc dropping on this particular hate blog in my honor (run by Jude and Amanda and friends) seems to think that posting pictures is doc dropping, and they use that comment I made as their "proof" that I practice this activity and or endorse it. 

The article goes on, giving their reader(s) an update! Check it out.

The caption reads: "Update: Positive Proof." Then it shows a screenshot of one of my tweets @Spike Lee. 

Here is my tweet.

 As you can read from my tweet, I was very upset and angry at Spike Lee. But why? Well, here is the history behind that tweet. 

Remember the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin on the night of February 26th, 2012? Well, the shooter was a man by the name of George Zimmerman and this tragic shooting occurred in Sanford, Florida. It was all over the national news. 

Anyhow, the days following this shooting, someone tweeted an address that allegedly belonged to George Zimmerman. Spike Lee, the famous writer, producer, actor, saw the tweet that claimed to be George Zimmerman's address and phone number and took it upon himself to retweet it to the many millions of followers that Spike Lee has on his twitter account. 

In the days following Spike Lee retweeting that address and phone number, a few of the crazies came out of the woodwork and attacked this address by throwing bricks through the windows and calling the phone number listed and made death threats to the occupants.

Here is where the story takes shape. 

The address and phone number that was tweeted, then later retweeted by Spike Lee, did not belong to George Zimmerman. It didn't even belong to anyone in his family. (Not that it still would have been okay to tweet and retweet his address) But instead, that address and phone number belonged to an innocent elderly couple.

Do we get the picture here?

Now, back to this article posted by this hate blog in my honor.

So, this hate blog posts an article about me and doc dropping, challenging my stance on the issue to which I am absolutely against the practice, and the evidence they present to the world that I endorse doc dropping is me threatening to post publicly accessible pictures and a tweet of mine that condemns Spike Lee for retweeting an address and phone number that ultimately, placed the lives of an innocent elderly couple in danger? ........ Really?!

Is anyone as confused by this as I am?

The article concludes with the following: 

"I will state, at the time of writing, I have not found any posts of Carroll Bryant actually releasing personal information." - Then they post a link to the article on my blog that shows my comment they posted in a screenshot and a link to my Twitter account as "reference".

Here is the screenshot. 

Reference to what?!  Reference to me doc dropping? Not doc dropping? To what are they referencing? The article is about me doc dropping, which they conclude in admission that they have never found me to do. Yet they start the article out trying to make the claim that I do doc drop and or endorse it. And their "Positive Proof" evidence is my tweet to Spike Lee condemning him for retweeting an address and phone number. Wouldn't that actually prove that I really do stand against such practices?  

Is any of this making sense?

But then I sit and wonder when I see insane BS like this and ask myself: What is the aim for this post? What is the point? Then it hits me! Are they (Jude and Amanda) condemning me for condemning Spike Lee for what he did? And if so, what does that tell me about Jude and Amanda and their friends / supporters over at their hate blogs? That they support what Spike Lee did? That they have absolutely no problem with Spike Lee (or anyone) posting addresses and phone numbers that put people's lives at risk? (Like the poor innocent elderly couple that that address and phone number belonged to?)

Really? You bullies endorse the practice of doc dropping and the murder of innocent elderly couples and people in general?  Is that the message you are sending with this article? That you endorse and support hideous crimes against human beings?

Well, apparently they do. Here is "Positive Proof" that the bullies and their supporters do indeed endorse such criminal behavior. A screenshot of one of the bullies, (Mrs. Joseph) a member of the hate group "Badly Behaving Authors" on Goodreads in which Jude Henderson and Amanda Welling are members of, and Mrs. Joseph wishing me dead "Pulp Fiction Style."

Take a look. (Screenshots don't lie)

And why do I assume the bullies and their supporters approve of sick crimes against human beings? Because none of them have ever come out publicly to condemn that comment made by Mrs. Joseph. And by now, they are all more than aware of that statement. 

Silence really is golden, isn't it?

You people can take from this what you want. I know what I take from it. And these are the kinds of people STGRB and myself are fighting against. (And our supporters) 

You can clearly see that I am not "insinuating" anything. I am not foolishly rambling off at the mouth like these bullies do. I have provided you all today actual screenshots that speak for themselves. Am I entitled to my opinion about these people? (The bullies) Yes, I am! And guess what? So are you entitled to take this information and process it as you see fit and come to your own conclusion as to the mental stability and or lack of human compassion that these bullies carry inside of them and their actions. As well to their intentions not only against myself, but other authors, STGRB and anyone else they (the bullies) deem fit to be attacked, including our supporters.

And let us not forget that these are the same bullies that claim that no sexual role playing between adults and minors was ever going on over at Goodreads after I broke the story with clear cut evidence in the form of screenshots to show otherwise. Even after Goodreads community manager, Patrick Brown took evasive action to rectify the problem and "clean" it up by updating their ToS, banning all sexual role plays on Goodreads. (To which I applaud that effort) Oh no, that proves nothing to them. They (the bullies) still claim that it never happened, and that I fabricated the entire story.

So then, am I also to believe that the bullies endorse / condone sexual role playing between adults and minors as well?

It sends chills up and down my spine.

I'm Carroll Bryant .... and this is the looking Glass.

Things We Learned Today:

* Carroll does stand against doc dropping

* There is no evidence showing that Carroll doc drops

* The doc dropping post by the bullies makes absolutely no sense what-so-ever

* Carroll tweeted Spike Lee

* These bullies are UNSTABLE individuals

Obesity: Why You Are Fat

Here is a question for you: If you were trying to get your child to live healthier, would you want them to stop drinking a drink that has 39 grams of sugar per 12 ounce serving, and replace it with another drink that has 40 grams of sugar per 12 ounce serving?

Before you answer, and before I blow your mind, let’s talk about obesity.

In New York City, Mayor Michael Bloomberg is trying to push city legislation to ban 32 ounce sodas. His reasoning? To help combat obesity and diabetes. My question is – what is his motive? Trust me when I say, no politician gives a rats ass about your health, my health, or anybody’s health outside of themselves and their friends and family. So again I ask, why does he want to do this?

I think it is just another step forward for the “progressive” movement in America where the extremists of the Democratic Party (Progressives) are really trying their best to insult the intelligence of the American people and or continue their quest to take away personal choice from the American people.  (I.E. – Communism/Socialism.)

That or, Mayor Bloomberg is just plain stupid and or a liar.

Here is why:

Mayor Bloomberg and the rest of these “progressives” keep yapping about how junk-food, fast-food, greasy food, sugary drinks are all making Americans obese. These people couldn’t be any more wrong! Food is not our health problem. It is exercise.

Let me say that again – IT IS EXERCISE!

But why have Americans, adults and children alike, stop exercising? Oh, I don’t know, let’s think for a moment. Here, better yet, let me tell you a story:

When I was a kid, do you know what me and my friends did when we got home from school? We went outside and played. Not for a lousy hour like these nitwits are trying to do with these ridiculous commercials that stress “60 minutes of play”. While they have good intentions I guess, I can’t help but to shake my head and chuckle. When I was a kid, we played for hours on end outside. From 4PM to about 9PM. Every single day! And you couldn’t find me anywhere on the weekends or in the summertime.

So why aren’t our kids playing outside anymore? Why do we have to always try and trick them into it or something? Well, because it is all we can do to distract them from their X-Boxes, or their iphones, or ipads, or Kindle’s, or laptops, or desktops, or whatever latest version of technology we have to distract our kids with (and ourselves) that requires them to sit down on their ass for hours on end.

I didn’t have those things to distract me when I was growing up.

Granted, I ate just about as much junk food as kids today probably eat, the only difference is – I burned off those calories and fat grams with extended physical activities like baseball, football, basketball, hiking, or whatever with my local friends. And also, we weren’t scared into our homes by the media and government officials with the “cry wolf” syndrome known as “sexual predators will get you”. I mean, everywhere you turn the channel there seems to be some fruit cake talking about child abductions like they occur every minute of every day in every city and town.

Hey, we had our share of child abductions too when I was a kid. In fact, there was a girl who lived within a couple of blocks from me and went to my school who was abducted. Fortunately, she was released and found and the guy was caught, but nobody tried to use a scare tactic against the rest of us kids to make us scared to go out and freaking play.

Listen up folks, this may surprise you but, not every man walking the streets wants to rape your kid. Just saying. Child abductions occur to about one percent of the population – maybe! - yet if you went by the media and government officials, you would think they occur to the tune of 90 percent. My point being this – we make our homes little prisons for our kids. We give them electronics to pass the time away so they can text and what not. For the majority of the parents out there, you actually encourage your kid to get fat without maybe knowing it. So if you want to know what is making your kid fat (or yourself) then now you know it is technology.

Let me say that again. TECHNOLOGY IS CAUSING OBESITY!!!

Did you hear that Bloomberg? Progressives?

So – now that you are armed with this knowledge, then why are you attacking sodas? Why are you attacking my freaking double bacon cheeseburgers and chilli-cheese fries? Hands off you communists! Hey, I have been thin as a rail for all of my life since until my car accident when I had to take it easy for a year or so and ultimately, spent more time on the internet and my writing that I rose to about 250Lbs. but now coasting at around 230. For a six foot three inch man in his late yadda yadda’s, that aint bad. (And a head full of non-gray hair) LOL So if I decide that I want to get fat in my later years say …. In ten or 15 years perhaps, then I say that I have earned the right to get fat. So leave me alone democrats and stop trying to make personal decisions for me. My health is none of yours or anybody else’s business. And regardless of your attempts at Obamacare, it just isn’t right for you to go around insulting America’s intelligence.

You “progressives” are telling the same lies that you told back in the late 1990’s that smoking was destroying our health care system because of all the “lung cancer” cases. Of course, that ended up being proved a lie because our health care system is worse off now than ever before. The truth is; our health care system is screwed up because we allow health care providers to jack up the prices. The health care industry isn’t regulated and it needs to be. (Just like oil companies and gas prices need to be) But that is a problem caused by our career politicians who take contributions by these special interest groups to “look the other way” – and or pass laws that benefits them and sucks for the American people and screws them over. (The car insurance law was just the beginning, now it’s health care insurance and later, home insurance, renters insurance and who the hell knows what else these communists will come up with to pass into law something to make us “buy” a product from these special interest groups.)

I’m still trying to find the freedom here folks.

If you think I am blowing smoke up your ass, then consider this: These brainless toads of the democratic and republican extremists lobbied for soda machines to be removed from public schools because they have 39 grams of sugar per 12 ounce serving and they replaced them with Snapple drinks that have 40 grams of sugar per 12 ounce serving.

Are you kidding me? Don’t you people ever do your research? Are you going to spend the rest of your lives believing politicians? Hell man, it almost seems like instead of looking out for our health, they are trying to kill us. Or at least, our children. Really? Remove drinks with 39 grams of sugar and replace them with drinks that have 40 grams of sugar?

This is why I have no respect for politicians anymore. This is just utter nonsense. It goes beyond stupidity if you ask me.

With American politics and our “career politicians” – it is one lie after another. It is finger pointing. It is always the other guys fault and it is just simply put, stupid beyond comprehension. What’s next? Replacing our 100 grams of fat hamburger with a by-product replacement burger that has 101 grams of fat?

How much you want to bet that when they do, they will pass a law requiring us to “buy” that burger or else pay a lofty “tax’ penalty?

Wise up people. Stop being stupid. Stop being blind. Stop being played by politicians.


                                I’m Carroll Bryant … and this is the Looking Glass.

Things we learned today:

* Schools across the nation removed sugary soft drinks and replaced them with drinks with more sugar

* Technology (and laziness) is the biggest factor contributing to obesity

* America has to get rid of the "career politician" if it wants to survive

* NYC Mayor, Michael Bloomberg displays communistic traits

Bully Shenanigans

Hey everyone, this is a spur of the moment post. You know I do this from time to time so stop looking so surprised. LOL

Anyhow, there is a great post over at STGRB called "Nice Try, Elly" documenting a recent attempt by a bully to gain access to another recent STGRB post called "Why Do Bullies Bully?"

Here's the thing, that post "Why Do Bullies Bully?" is password protected and it's driving the bullies up a freaking wall. I can hear them whining all the way from here.

Anyhow, this person known as Elly tried to get the password from Athena by pretending to be some guy. A classic bully tactic. Kudos to Athena for being able to smell a rat.

If you haven't read this post yet on STGRB, I highly recommend that you do. 

I would leave a link but hey, don't be a bunch of lazy asses, just click on the STGRB site link to the right on my blog in the aptly titled "My Blog list". STGRB is the first site listed. No foolin!

Seriously! if you would stop reading this and click the link you would be reading that post right now. 

Go on, what are you waiting for? Go. Click the link already.

We're done here. 


 Play nice. Peace and love to all.

Democrats Versus Republicans: What Happened After Clinton?

This is a rant. It is my rant. It is my rant against our political parties in America. For the record, I am not a democrat. I am not a republican. I am not an independent

I am an American!

It is a rant to demonstrate that I have had enough of this democrat and republican stupidity that has embarrassed this country now for who knows how long. Both sides think that they are right about everything all the time and the other is wrong about everything all the time. Here is a news flash for you idiots of both parties; No one is right about everything all the time and no one is wrong about everything all the time. Both parties have brought our country into the mess that it is currently in. Both parties are destroying this country. Both parties are at fault. The two biggest idiots who have contributed the most to the decay of America is MSNBC and Fox News.

Now …. On with my rant ….

It’s the age old question: What happened since the Clinton administration? Think about it, I mean, back in the 1990’s, when Bill Clinton was elected president, we were looking for jobs in America. During Clinton’s administration, America started getting those jobs. In my lifetime, there was no more prosperous time than during the presidency of Bill Clinton in the 90’s.

During the 90’s, I had a plethora of jobs to choose from. It was an employment smorgasbord if you will. This worked out great for me. I was working through three different temp companies, getting jobs here and there that fit my schedule. I liked to travel in those days of glory so I wanted to work sparingly. A few weeks here, a few weeks there, a few months here, a few months there, and in between I would take off and travel around.

I remember going to places such as Mardi Gras in New Orleans, or take off to Cancun or Florida for spring break. If the mood struck me, I would go to California or where ever I wanted to go. I was young and free and willing to do or try just about anything. It was a wonderful life. And every time I would return from one of my crazy adventures, I would go to the temp service and they would send me out to a new job for however long I wanted and with great pay to boot. I would get to work my hours, my shifts, my days for a time period of my choosing. I was single and loving every minute of it.

It was a grand time. A time of excess. Jobs were available left and right. In fact, there were more jobs available than what could be filled. I didn’t like the thought of being tied down to one company. I didn’t like to always work overtime. Working through the temp services, I had the luxury of refusing extra hours if I had other plans. Which often times, I did have other plans.

I watched as those around me got married, had children and were working their butts off for their family. That’s what they wanted, I always assumed, so yay for them. It appeared as though everybody was winning in those days. Things were good. The democrats were looking good also. President Clinton, you did good sir. Not that the republicans weren’t trying to kill those good times. They did everything possible to try and destroy Clinton’s administration with the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Quite frankly, I couldn’t have cared less that Clinton was getting some intern tail. Our economy was clicking on all cylinders and if the trade off was that my president was getting laid in the Oval (oral) office, then fine with me. Just keep the jobs coming. The impeachment by the republicans against Clinton was a big shame of our political structure. If only it would have just stopped right there.

Then came President Bush and the republican lunacy. Everything changed. I saw the problems that were forth coming and I am half ass where politics is concerned. But if I could see the end of paradise approaching with the Bush agenda, the republican agenda, then why couldn’t they? And why couldn’t the rest of America?

Sometimes I think Americans just like the smell of their own bowels because we spend most of our time with our heads inserted in our asses. I’m just trying to figure out why that is. The next thing I know, there is a war against tobacco. The argument was that it was killing our health care system. So the communists created laws that would lead to raising sales tax on tobacco products and lawsuits were filed left and right against tobacco companies because apparently, so many “ignorant” Americans didn’t know that by putting cigarette smoke in your lungs over a long period of time would lead (or could lead, or increase the possibility of) to them getting lung cancer and or other forms of cancer. Hell, I knew this at 17 years old, the time when I actually started smoking. My first clue was the insane coughing I experienced the first time I took a puff of my first cigarette. (Keeping in mind that I started smoking cannabis long before I ever started smoking cigarettes, and it still made me cough.) But I knew it wasn’t a good thing. So why didn’t everybody else know this? Why did they need the Surgeon General to tell them this?

Common sense people - acquire it, utilize it.

I think back and believe that this was perhaps the time when Americans started their desire to be coddled by their government. To be told that they are stupid by the people they elect. Now Americans are addicted to it. They yearn to be called stupid by their elected officials and apparently, they like it.

As always, I knew this health care claim was BS. And it was later proved to be so because now, after all of these years, our health care system is worse off than ever. But if that wasn’t enough, they (republicans and democrats alike) then decided that we needed to invest billions into a sexual predator data base and make convicted sex offenders register with law enforcement in order to “protect” the children. Now, anyone who knows me knows that I am all for protecting the children, but I am not for a program that costs billions of dollars to fund and still doesn’t protect the children and quite frankly, making sex offenders register with law enforcement does not do a damn thing to protect the children. We now have over a million people registered as sexual offenders and the list continues to grow every year and keeping track of all of them is becoming close to impossible. In fact, the whole program soon got abused and every guy that looked up a girls skirt on a windy day is being slapped as a sex offender. About 20 percent of all registered sex offenders probably shouldn’t even be on the list. Then we started registering children as sexual offenders when a 17 year old has sex with a 15 year old as was a case in Georgia about 6 years ago. A program that was started to protect children from adults became an abused weapon to turn children into sex offenders for them being kids. And that is the nature of our politics in America.   

Not only did the war on tobacco cost us millions (if not billions) of dollars in lost revenue from tobacco sales tax, and jobs lost from businesses going belly-up from the ban of public smoking to boot, we increase our expenditures with this sexual predator data base system.

So I watched as restaurants and convenient stores and wholesale outlets, along with night clubs and diners and ‘mom and pop’ shops started disappearing. My neighborhood started to look like some deserted cow-town or something what with all the boarded up buildings that sprung up, and for the most part, are still boarded up to this day, and I saw the coming of the end of our paradise.

My friends were finding it harder to find and keep their jobs. All of those houses, cars and electronics they bought with credit, throwing them into a financial “dire straits”, was finally coming back home to roost. I started to take my own actions to get rid of stocks, bonds and investments. Then came 911, and with it, the war against the terrorists in Afghanistan. If that wasn’t enough, the lies from President Bush, vice-president Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld – throwing us into a war that we not only couldn’t afford, but should have never started in Iraq. All I heard was “They have weapons of mass destruction.” And all that was proven was, “There are no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.”

Thanks republicans.

Our jobs were lost, our local governments went to shit, our infrastructure went to even more shit, the unemployment level shot up like a junkie with two needles, and the war between the democrats and republicans got worse and more childish with each passing year.

Really? All of you so called “experts” and college grads, politicians and financial wizards didn’t see the writing on the wall? Really?

Please refer yourself to my earlier statement about Americans savoring the flavor of their anal passages.

Greed finally caught up with America and Americans. We are perhaps the most greedy of species and at the same time, linger in our contentment.

Fortunately, I saw it coming and took my own initiative. Meanwhile, I watched the rest of America and other countries who were (are) foolish to follow the steps of Americans begin to fall apart where their economy is concerned, and turn a blind eye to their greed and stupidity. It soon became common practice to not hold ourselves responsible for our own words or actions. But rather, point the finger at somebody else and  say that it is their fault I make stupid mistakes and we need our government to tell us what to do and how to do it.

Now look us at, America, and I mean, really take a look at ourselves. We are one sorry of an excuse, aren’t we?

So finally, the Bush disaster came to an end and the country was looking for leadership once again like they got from the Clinton administration. What else could we do but turn to the democrats again in hopes they could pull us out of this mess the republicans got us into? What other choice?

Enter Obama. That’s right, Barack Obama. Enter the promises that he made to start cutting down the deficit, create jobs and get our economy back on track. “No more politics as usual.” He said. He preached. He promised. In the process, blaming the Bush administration for everything instead of sucking it up and working for a solution. A real solution!

Barrack Obama, democrats – you fail!

I look around and still see so many out of work. I see taxes going up. I see more and more of our rights being taken away. I see the progressives (another word for communists – The republican word for communist is “Tea Party”) forcing us to buy health care insurance. And that “Obama-Care” system is going to take us down a darker path even further. Gas prices are soaring, inflation inflating, no middle class, and most certainly, no freaking answer. I see things getting worse. This is when I realized, it will only keep getting worse because our politicians are more about arguing with each other and their own party agenda that they don’t have the time to work on the problems they were elected to work on for the American people. Evidently, in order to fix this mess they have to pass more laws that takes away more of our rights and freedoms. Really? That’s your answer Dems, GOP? I look around and see our national deficit grow by three trillion dollars in the past four years under Obama. One trillion of it coming from the senseless war in Iraq. (Again, thanks republicans, even though, you weren’t totally to blame for that. Hilary Clinton also believed your lies and fake intel that Saddam was back in the business of producing and storing chemical weapons.

How is that for a kick in the ass?

I watch MSNBC and the democrats hating on republicans. I turn to Fox and watch republicans hating on democrats and then it hits me, this is our leadership. These are the ones who teach us all how to hate one another. These are the ones who teach us how to bully one another. These are the people who teach us that it is okay to point the finger of blame rather than stepping up and accepting responsibility or try and find solutions to our problems. These are the people who are teaching us how to spin every little thing, including the out-right truth, and make it look like something else entirely. These are the people who are dividing this country.

People like Rumsfeld who tweets about the ten year anniversary of “freeing the Iraqi people” makes me sick. It makes me sick because even to this day, he and the republicans continue to fail when it comes to the truth and accepting responsibility for the truth and the many lies they told the American people. The truth is; it was never about freeing the Iraqi people from Saddam. Oh, how I wish it were though. I would have accepted that. But that isn’t truth. And Rumsfeld knows this. The republicans know this. The Iraqi people know this. But do Americans know this? Or are we still enjoying the smells of our anus?

Yes, America, these are our true leaders of our country. And they all suck. They are all liars and corrupt politicians who have spent their entire political careers learning how to be corrupt and lie and swindle the American people. Not to mention, insult our intelligence.

No wonder America is screwed up.

So I ask yet again, what happened to paradise? Why did it have to end? What happened to our leaders? Where is our leadership? Why do our politicians continue to insult our intelligence? And make things worse? From both sides; democrats or republicans, we have no leadership, period!  

Detroit is just the beginning. But America, you have your choice. Remove head from sphincter or continue tasting the turkey from our last Thanksgiving dinner of the Clinton administration. We need a better class of elected officials. We deserve a better class of elected officials. But if we continue to elect idiots like Mayor Michael Bloomberg and President Obama, then we deserve every ounce of poverty and socialism we get from them. After all, if we continue to elect them, and people like them, and tolerate them, then we must want to become a communist society or, a little sister to our big brother, China.

And now we have Obama and the democrats blaming everything on the sequester. Really? Some Marines get killed in a training exercise and what do we do, blame the sequester? This is our solution? Cancel Whitehouse tours and the Easter egg hunt because of the sequester yet, we send billions of dollars to countries that wish us all dead? Really Obama? Really democrats? This is how you “lead”?

Insert shocked face here ( _______________)

Has anybody even noticed that the states and cities that have the worst problems financially or highest crime rates are primarily “Democratically” run? Places like NYC, Chicago, Detroit and California have all gone to hell in a hand-basket while Republican states like Texas seem to have their shit together…. Well, except for the executing mentally retarded people and intolerance to gay and lesbians by depriving them of their rights for them to get married like the majority of the rest of the country.

Land of the free? I think not. We always seem to be living on the edge of Eden. Right on the cusp of perfection and yet, we seem too stupid to get over the top. This is what happens when you have “career” politicians. They are always more concerned for their “job” on the short-term to get re-elected rather than the long term needs of the people they are elected to serve. This is why nothing can get accomplished in Washington. And why nothing ever will for as long as the American people allow this nonsense to continue. And trust me, if the “extremists” of both parties (Tea Party and Progressives) have their say then this nonsense will continue until “Olympus Has Fallen.” And we will fall. History proves it to be inevitable.   
However, that being said: If the democrats can’t fix it, and the republicans can’t fix it … Then who do we have left to turn to?

Democrats versus Republicans – We all lose!

Things we learned today:

* Politicians are the puppet masters and Americans are the puppets. I don't know if that's how it was meant to be in the beginning, but that is the way it is now. Or worse yet, special interest groups are the puppet masters and the politicians are the puppets and the American people are the audience with no say anymore. Just sit quiet and watch as your life goes to hell. And your country. 

Yeah, that's what we learned.
