Just like that, it’s over. Amazing outcome, eh? Everyone I talk to here can’t believe how braindead Americans have become over the years. People look at me incredulously, asking things like, “Do they have different news there or something?” and “What, are they just incredibly stupid?”
Four years of watching George Bush heartily shout FUCK YOU to the world community, the environment, half of America, and they still want more. Boggles the mind, it does. I can’t wait for the book burnings and re-education camps, er, retreats to begin.
Thank god the Faithful have finally wrested power from the Liberal Elite, those power brokers pulling the strings behind the scenes in America and pushing their sinister agenda of gay marriage, compulsory abortion, and “higher” education. Finally power is in the hands of The People! (”Damn, now who’s gonna hold the remote control?”)
I, for one, feel much safer knowing that we’re building a safer, well-armed and incarceration-loving society. Because you know what? It all comes down to this: who do you trust? Y’know? It’s about who ya trust. And while Dubya may not be smart, or eloquent, or literate, or diplomatic, or capable, or rational, or competent, or possess leadership qualities or, well, ANYTHING we thought Presidents should up until now, I think he’ll do just what he says. Or tries to say. He’s a good ol’ boy, you see, and, well, I trust him.
Chin up, people, and get busy.
Congratulations on finding my personal blog. It's been around in various incarnations since 1997, which is before blogs were called "blogs." See if you can top that.
My name is michael, and denbushi (電武士) is the now-dorky-seeming online name I made up back when I thought (ever so presciently) that some kind of unique nickname for the interwebs might be handy. Just for the record, it IS unique (even today!) except for this jujitsu variant/dojo in Puerto Rico which co-opted it without even asking me. If I had to cage-fight them for exclusive use of "denbushi" chances are good they'd win. But I'd still do it.
These days I live in Tokyo and mostly use my real name. A few years ago I founded a design and marketing agency called netwise. We do web and internet stuff. We're pretty good at it.
