I want to pretend!

I don't remember Bush running for president, much less him winning. I had never given a damn about politics; that is until 2008 when I actually went and cast my vote for the very first time in my life. I didn’t know much about politics then, and I still don’t know much about politics now. The only thing I learned along the way was that most politicians no matter if they’re at city level or all the way at the top; don’t have an ounce of scruples or integrity. Most and truly don’t give a damn about you, me, or this country. The only thing they care about is to gain fame and fortune; so much so that I’m positive most have sold America and their soul to the devil. I don’t think I’ll be voting this year. How can my miserable little vote stand a chance with the mega millionaire$$$ and billionaire$$$! I’m so disillusioned and dismayed!

How I wish I had never become interested in politics, because that’s when I started changing. I’m pretty sure that those of you, who have known me since way back, have noticed the drastic change, also. I use to be so happy go lucky, silly and sometime pretty obnoxiously naughty. I want to do all the fun things I use to do; stuff like inviting my friends over for my famously delicious chili con queso dip and Margaritas. I want to play Monopoly with them again. I want to sing again to them,

“I love myself, I think I’m grand, I go to the movies and hold my hand.
I put my hand upon my knee! If I get fresh I slap my face!”
How I miss ME!

I don’t want to try and learn anymore. I want to PRETEND that is country is a democratic country run by people who are intelligent, truthful and caring. I want to PRETEND that our vote matters more than all the money in the world. I just want to remain stupid! I want to be happy again! I want to start sharing with you the sometimes insane things that happen in my life. I want to share Grandpa, my animals, how this bitch of a neighbor hates me. How I’m sure she and I will someday get into some serious cat fight! Can hardly wait! Heh heh I want to share some new experiences with my shadow people. No! I'm not crazy! Ask [info]fourcorners who happens to be an expert at ghosts and shadow people!

I’ve always had problems sleeping. It’s gotten worse. The night before last, I didn’t sleep at all. Last night I slept for only a couple of hours. I’m having
sad and strange dreams which I can’t recall at all when I wake up. I just know I carry a strange feeling from them the whole day through.

I still love President Obama and I always will.
I still despise the GOP and I always will.

By and by, El Paso, Texas has reached the brim of the cesspool when it comes to corruption. I am so disgusted!

Texas is a basket case to begin with. Half of it is redneck East Texas, an old style southern state. The other liberal/toney West Texas, almost the old west the gate way to libertarianism. Every 4-8 years it swings one way or another. It's a wonder the entire population has it's head screwed on. Nothing is going to change, because economically, Texas is always doing well because of oil. I think most of the people in Texas feel the same way. So as long as the oil money comes in, it's just find to fume about everything and keep it the way it is. The bottom line is money. People want money to come in their state, because that causes jobs and happiness. So they keep electing the same people. So our country is still democratic, it's just the people preventing it from happening.

Its a corrupt country. You should see what Maryland is like our governor is one of the slimiest well connect toads on the planet.

On the other hand I'm glad that you are starting to see that its not all black and white. The best way to keep the corruption down is to only let any jerk stay in office one term. Party doesn't really matter.

This is where I find myself now, too. It just doesn't seem to make a difference whether I vote or not so there's no point. I'd rather find something more productive to do - like put up a "Free Hugs" stand at a mall...

Try this to have better dreams at night and gain some protection from the shadow men: which are not good ghost at all. Before going to bed speak out for what ever spirit is there to leave you alone tonight and not to enter your dreams or otherwise disturb your dreams. Spirits can enter your dreams to screw with you. Making you tired and lose sleep is how they begin a series of attacks on you.

I know it is hard to stay posative when you first start seeing things as they really are in the world. Try not to let it get you down my friend. Roughly 40% of America always vote for Republicans and 40% always vote Democrate. Doesn't matter if they run a shoe for president... that shoe will get 40% of the vote. It's the remaining 20% that decides who gets elected. That is how we can limit the amount of corruption. It takes epic screw up to get things changed for the good... like a depression.

Have you considered checking to see if you are suffering from depression? Sounds like restless anxiety to me. As for politics I'm less concerned with personalities than issues.

Surprise... Im still around
Have you even considered that your Love for the Liar in Chief and the fact that you may actually be hearing the truth about what he is doing to our country, is creating the imbalance in your life and preventing you from sleeping soundly?

ubet_cha is so very right in the statement about term limits. as well as about Partys not really mattering. There are corrupt democrats and republicans as well as independents. I have always voted for the PERSON not the party. Anyone who knows the history of our country knows that George Washington in his farewell address to the country warned us about political partys and how they would destroy that which they fought to give us. Its the same that Benjamin Franklin said to the woman who inquired to him, "Mr Franklin, what have you given us?" His reply was "A Republic Madam, If you can keep it"

Their words have never been so true as they are today.

As for sleeping, may I suggest that a bottle of Merlot, and a good book before bedtime might induce a restful night. Good Luck little one...

Somehow, I missed this and thought you'd dropped off the face of the earth. Well done, gravity, playgirl's still here.

EDIT: And who does your photos?
