A Rant of Reality

Standard

Once upon a time, there was a charismatic president of the United States, and people disliked him because of his skin color and “liberal ways.” his Congress of fools voted mercilessly against his policies regardless of how good they were.

“You’re a socialist” they would exclaim. A GOP candidate even told him “No one ever died from not having healthcare.” Fortunately, I have a good insurance plan under Obamacare; if not I’d be a goner. As for Socialism, it ain’t all bad; it’s selfless nature if you ask me.
But what can we really do except sit back and watch the show. As the intensity grows we’ll just pop another bag.

A rally for “the 99%” now had a muddled message, but even when it was clear as crystal, nothing changed. S&P is down, while oil prices and corporate greed are at an all time high. A new law was passed to forgive student loans, but why don’t we just “nip the problem in the bud.” A book is more than my paycheck and I don’t even enjoy it. What can we do except watch it all fall down, keeping our heads above water trying not to drown.

If 2012 is the end, we could be better off that way. As for me, I’ll keep my bank account stocked up a bit and my credit in check. I’ll stay hopeful for “change” because it’s what we need. In a place where two of the same can’t marry and wage gaps exist, something has to be different and that’s just the gist.
But what can we really do in reality, except sit back and watch the circus. As the lions roar we’ll just pick some more cotton candy.

If wanting to help the working class makes me  a liberal (with a negative connotation), I’ll take it as a compliment. Why must we label everyone and everything? I at least hope there are peanuts in my Planter’s bag and I know not to put my hand near the blade. I know hot temperatures burn, and ashes are in an urn. I know just how much monetarily I own.
It’s not a lot but it’ll do just fine. I’ll hold on to this 169,000 mile car of mine.
What can I really do in my life, I’ll sit back and watch the festivities. Pop another bottle. Enjoy the sunshine.

About Trish Reznick

Writer. Pessimistic optimist. News junkie. I write real estate advertising pieces, but my heart's in music journalism. To make the real estate biz more exciting I put music references in to a good percentage of my writings. I guess you could call me a liberal. I have an extensive record collection and I prefer them over MP3s any day... unless that particular day I plan on leaving my apartment. Considering I'm an extrovert, that is quite frequently. I'm a scorpio...which is a nice way of saying I have intense mood swings... I thought that was just called being a chick.
