The Rogue Speaks:
Yes, it is a REAL but obscure word. It means "governed by the worst." Now you know that I am about to launch into one of my political rants. It won't be a long one, though. The packers are coming in the morning and I have to start setting aside stuff that I will be needing over the next few days, so it doesn't get accidentally packed. I decided to put the toaster and the coffee maker in the fridge, along with all the paper plates, and plastic utensils and cups. They'll never find them there. Brilliant, yes, I know!
The Olympics are in full force, and so are the politicians. Mitt Romney has already managed to piss off Great Britain, and the Palestinians on his three-country tour. I guess the Poles got by unscathed, but probably because Mitt's handlers cut all the Polish jokes out of his speeches. This guy is dangerous! If by some awful disaster, like hanging chads, millions of voters were disenfranchised at the polls, and he was elected president, we would be more than likely to lose allies because of his political gaffs! And if he managed to seriously piss off one of our enemies, American could become toast, literally! Diplomacy! Can you spell "diplomacy," Mitt? No? I didn't think so.
Let's face it. The guy is not quick on his feet when he tries to speak extemporaneously (dog? airtight box? roof of the car?) Couple that with his mask-like, pasted-on smile and those dead-looking eyes, and you've got someone who could give America a bad name in a big hurry.
And what about all that money he has stashed away in off-shore accounts? Show us all your tax returns, Mitt! You want to be president, yet you steal from your own country by hiding assets so they cannot be taxed. There's a name for that, too--KLEPTOCRACY--and, no, I did not make that up. It means "governed by thieves." It's bad enough that there are so many of those in Congress, and we certainly don't need a thief in the Oval Office, now do we??
Remember the expression "Rome wasn't built in a day"? Well, no one could possibly clean up the ungodly mess after eight years of George W. Bush in only four years. Think about that one! The last thing we need is another conservative republican in the White House.
That's my lesson for Miss Jenny's class on Alphabe-Thursday! I can't decide now if I want to pack more stuff, or nap. Pack? Nap? Nap wins. Bye!
p.s. We are leaving Tucson on Monday, so I won't be around for a while, but check back after August 14. Hopefully, the van will arrive on time in Brunswick, and I'll be good to post!!!
