Sitting.... thinking a thought.

I have been writing papers every week for 5 weeks....officially this class blows! But the bitch of it...I have learned so much...:) Researching what I want my thesis to be in each case. So I don't like it, but it is what I am doing, and the end justifies the means. So why write my drivel, because something is stuck in my craw! I am nothing, if not predictable. I was sitting, first, thinking how many people say the f-word, immediately upon the conclusion of filling their gas tank. I stopped to get gas on my way home and I heard it 4 times in the lot, ok, once by me!
Well, then I start thinking about what a bill of goods the voting, taxpaying American public has been fed over the years. I know I am always getting a ration of shit about remembering my past, but I do not live in the past. I remember my past, I remember what about it was good and what about it sucked. Why doesn't this country? I remember people who supported me and most definitely the ones who didn't.
Does anyone remember the Alaskan pipeline? When our country convinced us that the construction of this pipeline would decrease our dependence on foreign oil and keep the supply and demand in check. Can ANYONE tell me where this failed? Is It still working? lol
I can only imagine that even Thomas Jefferson, the Republican gentleman from Virginia, is doing loopdy loos in his coffin.
Jefferson’s quote, "I hope we shall crush ... in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country" is often attributed to being a strong warning against corporations and their function in American government and society.
Hello Oil cartel. Some three hundred years later, I have come to view this man as a visionary of epic proportions. I have felt that this country is like a runaway train on a collision course with something. Any one else feeling the same way? We can only hope that this election yields something that gets America back on it path. Ok, I'm finished yapping.....
