Di Fi So Dum

My letter to my pathetic Senator:

I am nearly speechless with disgust at what you have done by supporting the granting of immunity to the telcos for their apparent violations of FISA and the Constitution -- violations the Senate has not even bothered to investigate.

The fact that you have failed to live up to what I expect of a Democrat is unimportant. The fact that you have utterly abandoned the basic functions of a Senator, and extinguished the foundational elements of our of nation is unforgivable. Your fixation on "bipartisanship" is, simply, pathetic. Abrogation of the rule of law is not less an outrage because you join Republicans in accomplishing it -- your participation doubles the outrage.

Shame on you, Senator. Shame on you.

The first few months of withdrawal can be quite difficult. To help remind you of the reason for your choice:

I hereby disown, disavow and distance myself from the Democratic Party. If you catch me using the pronouns "we" or "us" when discussing the Democrats, please slap me and remind me of my vow.

I suspect the Meme will never be blue again.

Nuff said.

Feinstein is my senator in the same sense that Bush is my preznit and Ahnold is my governor. I didn't vote for DiFi last time (I voted Green in that race IIRC) and I sure as hell never voted for the Shrub or the governator, but I live in Gulliphonia, so like it or not, she's my senator, etc.

And she is doing precisely what I now expect of her gelatinous ilk, but I am not going to tell her that.

I feel sorry for you with DiFi as your senator. Please feel sorry for me, Joe Lieberman is mine!!!

I thought you understood that the rejection of the Democratic party implied the rejection of all parties and therefore (nearly) all politicians. Having expectations of those folks is just a sign of addiction. And there is no methodone for that craving. Gotta kick it (them) cold turkey. Kick hard. Real hard. Extremely hard. With extreme prejudice hard.

What? You thought it would be easy?

Vote for people, not parties.

This isn't the first time she has pissed me off. Were you here when she was mayor of SF? And I'm sure it won't be the last.

The democracy which never existed in the U.S. (remember, you live in a Republic!) is completely and irretrievably broken. The right to vote has always been restricted and considered a privilege, never a real right. The votes have always been tampered with, always, always, always.

However, if what you are concerned with is self governance and NOT politics then you gotta keep your eye on the ball, which is principles. Principles, tenets, articles of faith, whatever you like, are the tools or guides that people use to conduct their actions. You can know virtually everything you need to know about a person by applying logic to a few of their actions and statements, and then inferentially working out the behavior they will certainly display when push comes to shove, which it always does.

For the record, D.F was bad news from the time she debuted, which was a loooong time ago. Anybody that claims not to have known what her agenda was from day one, was an accomplice, because it's never been a secret. And if you weren't her accomplice, you were an incredible fool to believe anything she said. She compares well with Leona Helmsley and maybe we can even that comparison up just a bit more.

If you simply have too much time on your hands, don't play politics, join the masses and distract yourself with sports. But, if you want a chance in hell that things done in your name will be what you actually want, you gotta stop chasing that stupid rabbit around the track and find the guy working the rabbit. If he isn't working things the way you want tell him to go. If he doesn't, threaten him. If he still doesn't, force him out. If the sucker is still sitting thereā€¦. Well you know.

Think I'm suggesting the impossible to look into men's(women's) souls and get a clear picture?

If you can work out the implications of my comments, you can certainly infer what any politician is going to do next, or in any particular situation. They signal their moves with semaphore flags, marching bands and paid announcements. You seriously want anybody to think you were surprised, by any poilitician, EVER?
Maybe you just don't like looking ahead.
Or could it be that taking personal responsibility is the burr under your saddle?

Taking action, the ultimate bug-a-boo.
