Politics - August, 2002 - Terry Jumps on
You can tell Terry's American. We love our
1.Democratic Attorney, Julian Epstein.
Wow!!! This guy is on. Catch him on CNN, and
marvel at the communicative skills of a rational man. "Julian
Epstein, you make me want to be a better man!"
2.Actors and celebrities who back politicians.
Hi, yes, um. Put your money where your mouth
is and give something back to all of the poor people who spend their
last dollars to see your movies. Bald Republican actor guy, I really
want to like you except you are becoming more of a facist every
day. Stick to the day job. We don't need another former actor for
President unless it's Clint Eastwood or Jon Stewart.
3.NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg. OK,
people. I lived in NYC during the Giuliani years and he is no hero.
Mike Bloomberg however, has really garnered my attention and respect.
This man is much too human to be that wealthy. His appearance on
"The Daily Show" made me an instant fan and his attitude
on education proved he is the man for the job, post 9/11. Living
proof, the rich can do some good.
4.CNN's Crossfire. The
most entertaining show on television. One only need to watch the
political feathers fly between Republicans and Democrats to learn
why nothing gets done in congress - no one listens to anyone, let
alone try to understand their point of view.
5.The war on porn and drugs. America
has bigger problems than these non-issues. It is time to get religion
out of government and start focusing on the real emergencies in
this country. The naked human body is not dirty and drug abuse isn't
going to go away if drug abusers are treated like criminals.
6.Common sense and rational behavior.
We all need more, but they especially need it
in our government.
7.Environmental Issues. If
you are not concerned about the environment even a little bit, you
haven't left the house in a while. Ignorance isn't bliss, it's death.
Conserve and preserve.
8.Political parties. I
don't care if you are a Republican or a Democrat, help people and
stop helping yourself!!!
9.John Kerry and John McCain. Rumor
has it this dynamic duo might run together for Presidential office
in 2004. We need a Democratic President and a Republican Vice-President.
This pairing quite honestly gives me shivers of arousal. I will
give up a year of my life to support this campaign. Kerry is one
of the few Democrats willing to publicly question Bush and his aggressive
10.Post 9/11 patriotism!!! Nothing
beats being cut off in traffic by little old ladies with "Remember
the Twin Towers" bumper stickers or "Firemen Are the Real
Heroes." It is dangerous to question our government since 9/11
and considered anti-American by many to criticize the United States.
Well, I love America but we are not perfect and under the current
administration, we have a lot to answer for, especially when it
comes to environmental policies. I don't dislike our President,
picking on him is like teasing a retarded child, I don't like how
cozy everyone is with corporations and how the people who put Bush
in office are pulling his strings. Let's not be a nation of sheep.
I am happy to examine whether I am wrong or not, but the smugness
coming from our government leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I unlike
a lot of people, actually lived in the neighborhood surrounding
the World Trade Center only two months before 9/11, so hearing people
lecture me about 9/11 who didn't live in the affected areas is like
listening to a white person explain the perils of African Americans.
Everyone needs to relax!!!
