Another Ghost of Blogging Past
Since I decided that it was time to climb up on my soapbox again I thought that I might as well include another past piece the full text is in blockquotes.
More On Bush
Some of you will like the title because it makes it sound like I said Moron Bush, like some of the infantile behavior going around. I hadn’t planned on writing any more about this, but I am truly disappointed in the behavior I am witnessing.
I am a registered Democrat, but I really consider myself an independent with moderate leanings between the parties. But I am just disgusted by some of the leftist garbage I have read or seen. Suck it up boys and girls. You cannot spend all day saying that the country is populated by idiots who are sheep.
It is just as offensive watching Republicans banter about the liberal lemmings who cannot think for themselves and need fat bastards like Michael Moore to make their points for them. The game is over, Kerry lost. And he lost big.
He rode the wave to the anybody but Bush crowd. He survived on the anger people feel towards Bush. That is not an endorsement of him, it is an indictment. I have encountered very few people who said that they thought that he would be substantially better than Bush. Most people told me that he was the lesser of two evils.
Now maybe there are millions of Kerry supporters out there who disagree and think that he would have been much better, but my experience thus far is that they are few and far between.
The whining that some people are doing gives the false appearance that we are living in a police state in which we have no rights and are incapable of doing anything to help ourselves. I find that to be offensive in it’s simplistic attitude and approach.
Suck it up, your team lost and now you have four years in which you can do things to make the US and the world a better place. You can become an activist within your community and lobby congress for better environmental laws. You can become an activist within your community and work on communal recycling efforts.
You can help to lobby for a real alternative sources of energy. Find something to replace oil and you are on to something big. When the justices are nominated let your Senator know what you think.
You can work on education by volunteering your time. You can be part of grassroots efforts to provide a positive influence. But please, please, please shut up with the whining. It just makes you look bad.
Take action and make good things happen. Negativity just hurts all of us, attitude is everything. Really.
P.S. I voted for Kerry.
The reason for bringing these up again is that I have seen little to no evidence of any effort by the left to do anything other than complain, and I have seen many things that made me wonder if there are not elements who want to see more bloodshed in Iraq and elsewhere.
There is every reason for you people to want to be proven wrong about him. In the meantime how about doing more than blowing raspberries every time the Republicans speak.

Unless they get so bogged down in partisan ideology that they refuse to see what is in everyone’s best interests… which is what happens very often, unfortunately…

Actually politicians are exactly the people who can make a difference here. They can introduce legislation to provide tax incentives for purchasing environmentally friendly vehicles, grants for research etc.

Probably finding alternative sources of energy should be left up to scientists, etc. rather than politicians…
