I saw this posted at Huffington Post today. It was written by a member of that website calling himself (or herself) "mixnmatch." I was really impressed with it as a possible poem with a bit of a kick...rignt into the teeth of a rightwinger spreading hate and misinformation about the Obama administration:

YOU DIDN'T GET MAD WHEN.....

Quote:
You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.

You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy.

You didn't get mad when a covert CIA operative got outed.

You didn't get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn't get mad when we spent over 600 billion(and counting) on said illegal war.

You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq.

You didn't get mad when you saw the Abu Grahib photos.

You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn't get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden.

You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn't get mad when we let a major US city drown.

You didn't get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.

You finally got mad when.. when... wait for it... when the government decided that people in America deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all ok with you but helping other Americans... well f.u.c.k that. That about right? You know it is.

Wonderfully said. Thank you for finding that Cat.

Man does that first part ever sound like the letters to the editor in the local paper. Of course, if anyone says anything other than the approved talking points, they are accused of 'hating America'.

I don't hate America, just those Americans who talk like the first part of the above post. I don't hate them, just the willful ignorance.
