I’m currently ignoring the Presidential Address.

I’m currently ignoring a lot of things, really. But that one is the most recent.

I’m tired of hearing how President Obama isn’t doing enough in terms of the Gulf Coast oil catastrophe (I’m tired of hearing “spill”)? So what precisely should he be doing differently? What would solve this faster? Anyone?

I don’t know either, which is why I think he’s doing just fine as is. He’s not magic. He can’t remedy the entire situation with a snap of his fingers. Where’s the EPA? What is the Senate doing? Congress? Is anyone complaining about their response?

Actually I’m sure plenty of people are complaining. It seems to be all we’re good at lately.  Hell, it was my minor in college. And it’s so frustrating just hearing all the complaints and no answers.

I’m a pretty simple soul when it comes to politics. Cynical, sarcastic and jaded—but in a simple way. Everyone’s the same in my book: Republicans, Democrats, Green, Independents, Mad Hatters. They’re all politicians. They all operate within the same set of parameters.

And anyone that’s deluded enough to think that their party is above politics or their candidate is better than those pesky “Washington Insiders” is stupid. And I don’t mean that as some sort of insult. I mean it literally—they’re clearly not very bright.

Politics is politics is a sharp stick in the eye. I just keep sending my money to the IRS (which I did, incidentally, today) and assume 95% of that money is going into the pockets of the 2% of the population that really doesn’t need any more money. And meanwhile the people who genuinely need the help and need the money are consistently stepped on and screwed over.

What kind of fucked up world is that?
