Angry? No, I Just Want A Change!

smelly-diapers1I’m tired of being called “angry” by the media, the liberals, and the wannabe Republican presidential candidates.

I’m not angry.  When a baby has a full diaper, is Mom angry?  Is the baby angry?  Is everybody around the baby angry?  No, they just want a change.  They can’t stand the smell anymore.  They are uncomfortable with the way things are.  It is obvious that things can’t stay the way they are.  They all require a change and they demand it.  I’m not angry.  I just can’t stand the smell any more.  I’m motivated for a change.

I’m also tired of being called a racist.

I’m not a racist.  Just because I think Americans who were born here, who cut out Washington and Lincoln silhouettes in grade school, who still get teary-eyed when somebody sings a heartfelt rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, should not lose their precious jobs to foreigners who don’t even want to learn our language, let alone become Americans – that does not make me a “racist.”

And I’m tired of being called “stupid”.

I’m not stupid.  No, I don’t believe for a second that our cars and washing machines and toasters are destroying the earth that God created and has kept spinning for the last 5 billion years or so.  NASA says it’s not true31,000 scientists say global warming is a hoax, and the data “proving” man’s inhumanity to Earth has been manipulated and contrived for nothing more than personal profit.  Carbon emissions and greenhouse gases have been around forever – forest fires, volcanoes and sun spots cause way more crap in the atmosphere than man could ever aspire to.  So stop calling me a “science denier” and “stupid”.

One more thing – I’m tired of waiting for the people who are supposed to be on my side to stop calling me names that were once only found in the liberals’ playbook.   I never thought I would hear Republicans calling me – a long-time advocate and supporter of conservative principles – angry and racist and stupid.

Rockin' On the Right Side

I was a lonely soul
I had nobody till I met you
But you keep a-me waiting
All of the time
What can I do?

Tired of Waiting For You – the Kinks

Here’s a cool old clip of brothers Ray and Dave Davies and the Kinks.  They impressed the hell out of me when I was in junior high and still top the list of all-time great garage bands.  The Davies brothers are famous for their epic sibling battles – fortunately, they haven’t killed each other yet, and still put out some great music.
