HAS OBAMA ALREADY FAILED US? [Nov. 10th, 2008|11:19 am]
The American Caliban
[Tags|]
[Current Mood |frustrated]

We're hardly into the new era, and already the honeymoon is over. Broken promises, failed reforms, and betrayals of principle have crushed my dreams of this so-called "change." To summarize:
  • Plastic clamshell packaging has not yet been banned.

  • I and several other friends have dry, painful skin and a recurring cough.

  • Nothing, not even a plan, to replace our nation's dilapidated traffic cones.

  • Open punditry is still tolerated and even encouraged.

  • The President-Elect cannot cure the King's Evil by touch, nor has he called his men to horse against the Dragon, as it was foretold in olden times.

  • Just like his predecessor, he has not protected us from the Manimals. I am already on record here and here and yet I hear nothing from Mr. Obama.
Welcome to another eight years of tyranny and incompetence. WON'T GET FOOLED AGAIN!

I was personally promised a small increase in my number of friendly waves from neighbors of varying ethnicities, and I was told that the sun would shine more brightly and breezes could be timed properly? ALSO please remember that he has to groom the polar bears. He said.

This whole "...Barack ran so we could fly" needs to stop. At least until he, y'know, is president.

2 of my friends recently broke up. Obama has yet to show up to offer couples counseling to get them back together.

when I clicked on the dow jones industrial average, my cubicle was not flooded with golden light. My parents were right - I should have voted for McCain.
