When fields have been hit by heavy rain or water damage
your sometimes forced to play in the mud. Playing in these conditions can be challenging, fun
Now while I have, out of necessity to clear my name, done some mud-slinging in the real world, I truly hate the practice. Mud-slinging is ugly, shallow and nowhere is it more prevalent than in politics. You see in modern politics it seems the goal is to constantly find ways to smear the opposition and because both sides do it to one another, it is considered to be fair play. The truth is it is foul and you don't need white lines on a diamond to see that it is way foul.
Democrats mud sling on Romney "Show me your tax returns".
while Republicans mud sling on Obama by calling him "a liar". The "ads" highlight the other candidates' mistakes and vulnerabilities, and are paid for by campaign teams and their supporters. I don't know about you but I am sick and tired of all this negative, nasty, passive aggressive, mean-spirited and only partially at best bullshit.
Yet it's all about the mud smear and it's at the the center-piece of modern US elections. Sad.
I deplore these tactics as America is facing unprecedented challenges. Our economy doesn't work the way it once did. It is broken. It is not creating jobs as it has. it has taken me four long hard fucking years to get a second chance. Four years. Damn.
We have more important issues to deal with like :
- Rethinking our tax structure
- Fixing our broken fiscal system
- Gun Control
- Understanding the difference between spending and investing.
- Remaking our infrastructure
The assholes that run the candidates' campaign staff think that by throwing mud and unsubstantiated claims that "we the people" will get bogged down in distractions and it will tip the scales in their favor. That's really makes me mad because it insults our intelligence.
All this mud-sling has to stop and it has to start with each and everyone of us. Look beyond the mud and see the big problems, care about them, or at least understand them. Take it personally. Every time you hear a politician sling mud at an opponent rather than addressing a real issue, recognize that you're the one being dissed. Then do us all a favor and vote your anger.
I mean would you continue to play on a muddy field even though their has been no rain? Then why should you listen to unimportant mud slinging?
You Deserve it.
