Thanks Obama, I’m an idiot, Obamacare?

f 017

My students like to say this thing all the time, “Thanks Obama, I didn’t get up this morning on time.” Or they say, “Thanks Obama, I can’t afford tuititon.” They keep going.

Thanks Obama, I’ve had a shitty education; public schools are falling apart and now I’m an idiot.

Thanks Obama, but I can’t afford to go to school because even with financial aid, I’m still living in my car.

Thanks Obama, but the electricity is out at my house.

Thanks Obama, but my mother’s still sick from a staff infection that she picked up at County hospital.

It’s a fact that the country is going down the tubes. The gap between education in private schools and public schools is enormous. The fact that anyone can graduate from public schools knowing anything about geography, science, math or how to read and write, is a miracle. Many students simply don’t have those skills when they finish high school. And those are the lucky ones who actually finish high school. Millions more don’t.

I’m not sure all this is Obama’s fault though. This country was going down the tubes when he came along and I’m not sure it’s true to say that has sped it up. We are the only first world country which still supports the death penalty, doesn’t have gay marriage, doesn’t have health care and believes on simply preying on other nations that never attacked us. I hate to think what we would do to a country which actually attacked us. If Mexico has any thoughts about that, they should think again. We have bombs, man; we have drones and cluster bombs; we’ve got enough ordnance to blow up the planet many times. And even if you didn’t provoke us, Afghanistan, you’re over there near the oil that we would like to control.

I don’t thank Obama for much. I’m a fan of Obama Care because my kids are covered by it. Many of my friends don’t like Obama. The left wingers don’t like him because Obama’s like Iron Man when it comes to drone warfare. He just can’t wait to fly more drones over villages and bomb people who may or may not be bad guys. Plus he didn’t close down the rendition programs. I think torture is just too exciting to American intelligence, we can’t give it up. I can’t see the point because if I were being tortured, I would say anything. But what do I know? Then my right wing friends think he’s spending too much money. What money is being spent on this country? We’ve spent 4-6 trillion on the wars and this country is falling apart.

So if you’ve got investments in Raytheon, Boeing or any of the other companies invested in military development or the private military companies like Blackwater which had a bad rep and has now changed its name to Whitewater!, kidding, to XE. Seriously, why not AB? Or OG? Or OMG? So if you have those defense investments you can say, Thank you, Obama, and mean it. Say it, “Thank you, Obama, my huge investments in the defense industry continue to pay off.” And this country is going down the tubes in a big hurry.

If I feel gratitude, it’s to my friends and family. They’ve got my back.
