Cassi Creek: The government of the United States has been shut down by a gang of fools financed by corporations and robber barons and elected by intellectually deficient voters.
Anyone with at third grade education should recognize that government shutdowns invariably harm the people whom can least afford the hit. Yet, this disruption in D.C. is strangely attractive to the blue collar and former middle classes. Those who are not congenitally habitual GOP voters have been seduced into voting for GOP candidates by a carefully crafted network of propaganda featuring racism, anti-intellectualism, religious fanaticism, and pseudo-patriotism, the like of which has not been seen since 1945.
The truly frightening thing about today is the number of GOP/teavangelists who are lining up to be interviewed as if they had done something of merit, cured a viral disease, or solved the problem of world hunger. Instead, their vacuous grins are about generating a government status that is unable to fulfill its legal obligations. They are collectively village idiots who have stumbled into power they do not deserve and cannot wield well. They must be purged from the government and it must be done by the voters. 2014 is too far away now. I have never hoped for increased campaigning but that is what it will take to remove these fools from the ship of state.
On other fronts, we have closed the pool for the season and are beginning the process of external repairs needed to market this property.
