Recently, I watched a group of local Air America listeners hold a meeting, and it was obvious that they couldn't organize their way out of a wet paper bag; they are no threat to the highly efficient CFRP*, and to suggest otherwise is to live in FantasyLand (no disrespect to Disneyland's section bearing the same name).
* Christian Fascist Republican PartyOne of the people attending the meeting was backing a Democrat for a statewide office, and wanted me to sign her petition. Since I didn't know anything about the candidate, I declined, but did say I'd nose around his website and start watching his campaign. That appeared to shock the petitioneer; after all, this was an AirAmerica meeting, and we should be expected to latch onto anything that doesn't have a CFRP Label, right? Uh, wrong. That kind of attitude is what got us in the mess we're in now. I've said it before, but
when Gene-Bob becomes King, the first thing he'll do is ban all political parties. Those (very few) voters who remain will be forced to listen to what a candidate says, versus what party label is attached at the moment.I guess I shouldn't have been surprised, since the Bell curve shows that 49% of the population is below average in intelligence. (insert 15 second delay here, so the gravity of that statistic has a chance to seep in). If the country continues on this Radical Right Death Spiral, we should ask Disneyland to rebuild TomorrowLand into a place where only straight white Fristians exist. All others should just Leave Now.
This should have the effect of giving us better representation, since the people who vote will have had to investigate the issues (well, at least more than they do now).
