    some people dont like it when i write about politics. 

    strangely it’s usually only the republicans who ask me to stop writing about how bad our president is, and how worthless our GOP-lead congress has been, and how i rarely agree with our conservative supreme court.

    it fascinates me because their only reasoning is usually, “youre a great writer, but you dont know shit about politics, so knock it off.”

    but then they give no examples.

    it makes me wonder what debate team they were on.

    heres the deal with this blog. it’s mine. i call bullshit on bullshit and i tell you why im doing it.

    if you want to call bullshit on me, tell me why im full of shit.

    start with telling me why you’re not holding our president responsible for anything. tell me why the national economy isnt his fault, and yet the california economy is gray davis’s fault.

    tell me why its ok for bush to send us into war over claims of weapons of mass destruction and nukes in africa even though there was no proof about either.

    tell me why you support a man who bombed afghanistan and iraq but not the saudi arabia over 9/11 even though bin ladin is saudi as were most of the terrorists.

    answer these questions logically and i wont even bring up the fact that your boy stole the election with help from his brother, and the supreme court, and the klan.

    maybe the klan wasnt involved, but he did steal the election and in a way thats sorta punk rock, so i’ll give you that one.

    this time.

    see, i am a reasonable person, and as an american i support the freedom of free speech and an enviornment of honest communication.

    telling me to shut up because my beliefs are contrary to yours doesnt add to the discourse.

    it sounds like something from a darker period of the human experience back in the days when the Terminator’s dad wore a swastika on his arm.

    and if you dont want to tell me about why i should think differently about the president of the united states of america and his party who hasnt really done any good for the greatest country in the world lately, tell me why i should give Arnold a break.

    even though he hasnt held a public office, or put out a good movie that wasnt riddled with extreme violence, and who drives a Hummer, and whose four books that he’s penned had nothing to do with public policy but instead how to trick your muscles into getting bigger.

    spell it out clearly and with facts and you’ll never be bothered with politics on the busblog again.

    ladies and gentlemen, that is my promise to you.
