I Don't Know Anything

Another pertinent email that seems to capture allot of what I have been feeling since the election, I still have trouble believing that we have nobama for 4 more years as our leader.   Seeing that others feel the same way that I do, seems to help, a little bit.  I don't think that I have even watched the news very often since election day - I just can't seem to care anymore.  Jewelry is still a good thing to raise spirits with - so - come to my shop and buy some little goodie to make yourself and me happy :)

Well, It's now official; I don't know anything.
    I thought for sure that given such a clear choice, Americans would
    vote for
    love of country over self-gratification.

    I was wrong.

    I thought, that just as every presidential election in my lifetime,
    the bad
    economy would be hung around the incumbent's neck, sinking him.

    I was wrong.

    I thought that even those few Americans who were fortunate enough to
    still be
    fully employed (not counting those leeching off the public system)
    would be
    cognizant of how much pain their neighbors were in and elect someone
    who would
    at least try to make improvements.

    I was wrong.

    I thought that now that FINALLY some of the disturbing truths about
    our first
    black president had come to light, voters would reject a man so
    dangerously at
    odds with the American experience.

    I was wrong.

    I thought the 2010 elections and the Tea Party meant something.
    I thought the enthusiasm on display at Romney/Ryan events,
    contrasted with the
    lack of same at Obama/Biden events meant something.
    I thought Americans would never sell their liberty for the sake of
    trinkets like

    cell phones or even big shiny lies like 'free health care'.

    I was wrong.

    Never in a million years would I have supposed that America would
    support a
    president who left his (our) people to die at the hands of our
    enemies overseas
    without lifting a hand to help, then lie about what he watched in
    /real time/ for over two weeks,

    then lie about the lie for another month.

    I was wrong.

    I thought Americans could tell a hawk from a handsaw.

    I was wrong.

    We were offered the clearest choice we've has since 1980, where we
    had malaise
    and a misery index on one hand and a shining city on a hill on the
    Back then, we chose the city on the hill. This time the choice was
    between a man who says 7.9% unemployment and $4.00 gas is the new
    normal and a
    guy whose entire career has been about fixing broken entities.

    We chose to stay broken.  And Broke.

    Maybe I'm wrong about the ramifications of this choice.  Maybe
    windmills will actually

    turn out to be a viable energy source. Maybe an America diminished
    will be loved overseas.

    Maybe a nuclear Iran won't be a threat. Maybe Israel is over
    reacting. Maybe western

    civilization was always over rated. Maybe life under sharia is fun.

    Maybe when the rest of the world realizes that we have no intention
    of ever paying back

    that $16,000,000,000,000.00 (and counting) that we've borrowed from
    them, they won't

    devalue the dollar, causing hyper inflation here at home.  Maybe
     China will just keep on

    giving us money and not demand our hearts, souls, national monuments
    and marriageable
    daughters as payment.

    I've watched my candidate lose elections before but I've never felt
    the way I
    did election night when this one was called for Obama.
    It wasn't bitterness or sadness or even disappointment.  It took me a
    while to figure out what it was.  Then it hit me; it was horror.

    Pure, unadulterated horror.

    *Not because of Obama, but because of what it says about
    us, the American people, that we chose amorality, dishonor and self
    before posterity.*

    It shouldn't have even been close. Faced with the choice between taking
    charge of our destiny and tackling our financial problems, we opted
    to get high
    and have sex. We reelected a guy who doesn't understand that a
    growing economy
    creates more tax payers that will bring in more revenue than higher
    taxes ever will.  A Commander in Chief who doesn't know our military
    still uses
    bayonets. A man who wants to control the economywithout even knowing
    the difference between bankruptcy and liquidation.  It was one thing
    to elect a

    person without qualifications and buying into his line of 'Hope and

    *but it's something else to deliberately choose his failed policies
    over someone who *

    *has actually achieved success in life.**  I never dreamed America
    would do that.*

    Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, Hello Idiocracy!

    Goodbye, economic recovery.

    Goodbye, energy independence.

    Goodbye, religious liberty.

    Goodbye, liberty and justice for all.

    Goodbye, America dream.

    It profits a man nothing to lose his soul, even for the whole world,
    but we threw our souls away for cell phones and birth control pills.

    In the twentieth century (the American Century), we stepped up to
    the plate
    three times and saved the rest of the world from fascism, nazism and
    communism.  We were the cavalry, always riding to the rescue.

    Now, we've gotten rid of our horses, spent all our money on windmills,
    alienated our allies, bowed to our enemies, cut ourselves off from
    our own
    natural resources,thrown away our children's birthright and spent
    their inheritance.

    And we did it on purpose.

    When the wolf is at the door (and he's coming, yelling 'Allahu
    Akbar') we're
    going to find out that there is no one out there to come to our rescue.

    On the bright side, maybe it'll all turn out great.  After all, I don't
    know anything.
