Why Aren't People Rebelling?

I recently had someone wonder out loud why people aren't "rebelling" over high gas prices. I could have responded that White Americans no longer rebel over anything, and they will take whatever ZOG decides to jam down their throat and grin while they swallow it, and that would have been true as far as it went. But there's a little more to it than that.

Americans long ago twigged to the fact that Jug-Ears is hopeless and Cheney is evil, and they have developed a habit of blaming everything bad that goes on in the world on Jug and his little Jewish friends. In this they are, of course, mostly correct. A great deal of what is wrong in the world is in fact the fault of Jug-Ears and his little Jewish friends, but it's a little more complicated than that.

People have the idea that all this crap we're living with today is in some way temporary, an aberration born solely of Jug-Ears' incompetence. It isn't. People have convinced themselves that once Jug-Ears leaves next January (if he leaves) and we get a new President installed, be it Mr. Potato Head or the Sea Hag or BO, then somehow everything will be different and rapidly return back to normal, however one defines normal.

This simply isn't true. America's chickens are coming home to roost, and home they are staying. The penny hasn't dropped yet, but these horrible things like crushing fuel prices and food rationing are not going to go away. They are going to be part of our lives and our childrens' lives for many decades to come. Already some of our "bi-coastal" types are never going to see the other coast again because of the crushing price of fuel and such a thing as beans and rice and a can of creamed corn will become luxury foods. None of this has penetrated the great thick American skull yet.

I personally have been wondering for some time just why any of these three morons would want to be President of the United States in 2009, given the massive and irreparable problems that the country will be facing, and the virtual certainty that our new President, whoever he or she may be, will be (correctly) carrying the can for those problems.

People really do have the idea that all this crap we're living with today is in some way temporary, just as you say. However, I still run across many right-wingers who still hold out a desperate hope that Bush can still pull off a miracle, which is either insane or (probably) stupid or both.

fight fire with fire. our system affords us the opportunity to participate in this even with a few hundred dollars. I bought Exxon Mobil call options 6 months ago and made 500%. A 30% move in a stock can more than make up for the difference at the pump.
