Bush is evil and most people don’t care…

Sorry for the delay in posting, globetrotters, but I’ve been reevaluating my life, which is a good thing. I have haikus to share and also some ranting, but that’s OK. I have no fear or worry about being put on any list, like many people I know, because I am already on those lists anyway.
Here’s the rant—

I was at the gym this morning and noticed that the six TV’s on the wall were all showing some kind of news/entertainment show. Either CNN, ESPN, MSNBC, or something else. It was almost all fluff, and if they did air a relevant and somewhat important story, the next piece was invariably something distracting, either dire and horrible or cute and fuzzy. This is ‘bread and circuses’, a well known technique used to distract the masses from what is really going on in the country. If 50% of the people are busy watching the terrorist trial in D.C., or cheering George Mason University, or shaking their collective heads at the foreigness of other cultures, then this 50% are not paying attention to the ruination of this country by George W. Bush, his cronies, and their lapdogs. To be fat, happy, and distracted is all that most people want in life. A big-screen TV, swimmin’ pools, and movie stars, a few episodes of COPS, and the death sentence of a crazed religious fanatic.

Aside from a huge technological leap, nothing has changed in over 2500 years. The greedy pigs are still in it for the money and real estate, and they are willing to lie and feel superior in doing so. Money sucks. It’s dirty and corrupt, and gives birth to all the demonic forces that have plaqued the world.

Here are the haiku…

Bread and circuses
kept the Roman populace
fat, happy, and dumb.

Money causes grief
yet puts clothes on our backs
and food on our plate.

Farmers grow the food,
tailors sew the warm clothing,
money causes pain.
