THE MORNING AFTER

WE WAKE UP LATE.
WHERE ARE WE?
WHAT IS THIS PLACE?
OUR EYES ARE SWOLLEN AND OUR HAIR IS MATTED AND CRUSTY.
JUST WHAT HAPPENED LAST NIGHT?
IT’S SLOWLY COMING BACK…BUT IT’S HAZY….BLURRY.
WE REMEMBER BEING WITH WALL STREET AND THE BIG BANKS.
THERE WAS DRINKING AND PROMISES AND LOTS OF FAST TALK.
WORDS WERE WHISPERED INTO OUR EARS: DERIVATIVES, SECURITIZATION, AND CREDIT DEFAULT SWAPS.
THE PLACE WAS DIMLY LIT.
WE DON’T REMEMBER MUCH OF WHAT HAPPENED AFTER PUTTING OUR WALLET ON THE BAR AND SIPPING THAT DRINK THEY BOUGHT US.
WE CAN’T QUITE UNDERSTAND IT ALL.
MAYBE IT WAS DESIGNED SO THAT WE COULDN’T.
WE FEEL FOOLISH, AND USED.

Wow! Talk about feeling foolish and used!

ben's friend said...

I also feel used by the two latest administrations which held the guilty parties responsible by giving them tons of more money to continue to do what they previously did to get us in trouble in the first place.

LOSE THE CAPS said...

Blog looked interesting, got a headache reading all the caps, had to leave.

Wow. I felt the same when I woke up and realized that our Country had been taken over by that light skinned, well spoken, incompetent Negro,without a shot being fired.

ben's friend said...

Clearly we haven't reached the ideal of a post racial society.

PLEASE REFER TO THE MEETING
LIGHT-SKINNED NEGRO HAD WITH
MEMBERS OF THE GOP.

The Political Impaler said...

Chill out, I was just making fun of Harry Reid. As far as the meeting with the republicans and any other meeting the "President" has had I say this: LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE.

To Pol imp:
Why the " " around the word president? Is that to imply some sort of non presidency? If so, what is it about this pres that makes him illegitimate? Don't tell me you are a bither!

mad poster said...

P.S. to pol imp:

Forgive my misspelling. I meant to say, "birther."

The Political Impaler said...

No birther here. The quotes are because he is not Presidential quality. He is an idiot. He is Presidential light. He couldn't run a 711. Putting 4 sentences together is not intelligence.
This country is headed for the rocks with him at the helm. We are doomed, I feel sorry for my grandchildren.

to pol imp:
O.K. I'm a sucker. I'll ask the next question. Who, dare I ask, do you consider of "presidential quality?"

The Political Impaler said...

Mad Poster, that's a great question. I don't have an answer. I know who I don't want. I don't want a slick lawyer like John Edwards, I don't want pathological liars like the Clintons or Obama, I don't want idiots like George Bush, I don't want phonies like Joe Biden, John Kerry or John McCain. I don't want skanks like Nancy Pelosi. What I really don't want is a politician in charge. I would like to see an educated farmer or carpenter or plumber as President. I know this will never happen and that is one of the reasons I don't vote anymore.

quicksand said...

sorry about the strange ads placed about.
i'm trying to delete them.

quicksand said...

DEAR IMPALER,
YOU CAN'T NAME A LEADER THAT YOU'D SUPPORT.

FAIR ENOUGH.
INSTEAD, WHAT GOVERNMENT POLICY WOULD YOU SUPPORT?

WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE THE COUNTRY DO, OR NOT DO?
