Whew, okay sorry for the ventabulousness of the post yesterday. It just hit a little close to home and I took it personally.I get kind of rabidly protective of people I know and like and, as mentioned, some of them were in attendance Friday. But I’ve regained my sense of humor about the whole thing, not in small part due to something my dad said about the situation when I asked him what he thought of people drawing comparisons between the Tea Party and the Occupy Wall Street Movement as populist gatherings. “I don’t blame those kids [in OWS] protesting in the streets. They’re useful idiots; they’re being used and they don’t know it. But to the best of my knowledge, no one in the Tea Party groups ever shit in the street.” And, that pretty much closes the book on what I think about it. Thanks Pops.
And, just as the exclamation point, there’s this. Stephen Colbert, we shall meet one day. And we will share a laugh over the absurdity of it all. And I will tell you at that time that I think you inadvertently make my job a lot easier. But I dig you sir because at least you can find the ridiculousness in all this. Bless you for that. This piece is good and funny.
Oh, and if you’re wondering who is actually handling their money, meet The Alliance for Global Justice. Do they match up with your system of beliefs? Something to think about.
