Money, money, money . . .oink! (San Antonio Express-News) is reporting on the vast sums of money being poured into the race for the presiden....governorship of the Republic of Texas.  His majesty and chief executioner, Rick Perry collected some $8 million dollars for this general election.  Tthe report indicates that a Texas home builder gave Perry $600,000, more, while a Toyota dealer pumped in an additional quarter million dollars.   Perry's Democratic opponent has collected about half the amount.

In the meantime, back in the United States, it looks like forever-orange Cincinnati-area businessman and Tobacco waterboy, John Boehner is on a well-greased track to become the Speaker of the House.  If you got so far in your exploration of things that may or may not matter in politics or current events, that you took time to read the Bad Lawyer rant--you know all of this.  Much wiser commentators that the Bad Lawyer, bemoan this sort of wholesale purchase of power, so I suggest reading those writers.

My Hope

For my part, I hope that every Tea-Party wacko, Chamber of Commerce, and NRA-approved extremist Republican-backed greed-dog running for office wins.  Ultimately, I hope that after a complete spasm of bizzaro world-alternate universe governance, America will return to sanity, dignity, and decency.  Maybe it's the limitation of my education, but it sure seems to me that we are collectively in thrall to morons, demagogues, and crooks;  and, unless we call their bluff--give them power--language, logic, and democracy will lose all power to signify the ideals that I thought we were all about. 

An Orwellian animal farm collective is coming to power near you.  Hold onto your hats.


  1. I hope they all win, but I don't think for the same reasons you have. Democrats are out of control; Republicans are too. Both need to be kicked up the backside to remember why they're being elected. It is not to grow government; it is not to see who can spend money the fastest.

    The politics of the Democratic Party turn my stomach, as do the social policies of the Republican Party. I want minimal government that will spend tax dollars on important things, like infrastructure, not lining pockets or assuring re-election of incumbents. It seems as though it's going to take a third party, one that will sink one of the two major parties and move the other off its spendthrift ways and moral imperatives.
