This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Light Ahead

I used to be pretty reserved when it came to confronting Bush Republicans in real life. But these days I feel less inclined to be so nice. I mean, sheesh, its such an easier thing to do now than it was a few years ago when they could count on people's paranoia to at least give their reactionary idealogy some play. But now, there's a nice clean record to refer to. The tired ol' republican game of blaming the democrats for everything seems, well, absurd (more absurd?) now that they've held all three branches of government for a fairly decent chunk of time. The republican political apparatus, while very effective at winning elections and driving debates, cannot govern worth a hoot.

The problem, from my point of view, is that competant people are being shut out of the game by both parties. The republicans are deliberately trying to forsake practical solutions in its bid to become the party of the idealogically blinded, while the democrats are acutely aware that they will never be allowed to govern unless they appease the corporate money-givers. The democrats will find this hard to do if they ever try to fix what is so horribly wrong with our foreign and domestic policy, namely that we are driven by corporate special interests to pursue bad long term policy decisions.

Hence the republican's winning strategy, to pander to people's fear, bigotry and sense of tribal superiority while giving the powerful what they want.

I feel I shouldn't have to mention that this is ultimately really really bad for us as a nation. Posted by Picasa
