I’m Still Not Ready To Make Nice

(9PM EST – promoted by Nightprowlkitty)

Forgive, sounds good

Forget, I’m not sure I could

They say time heals everything

But I’m still waiting

I’m through with doubt

There’s nothing left for me to figure out

I’ve paid a price

And I’ll keep paying

I’m not ready to make nice

I’m not ready to back down

I’m still mad as hell and

I don’t have time to go round and round and round

It’s too late to make it right

I probably wouldn’t if I could

‘Cause I’m mad as hell

Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I know you said

Can’t you just get over it

It turned my whole world around

And I kind of like it

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby

With no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’

It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her

Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger

And how in the world can the words that I said

Send somebody so over the edge

That they’d write me a letter

Sayin’ that I better shut up and sing

Or my life will be over

I’m not ready to make nice

I’m not ready to back down

I’m still mad as hell and

I don’t have time to go round and round and round

It’s too late to make it right

I probably wouldn’t if I could

‘Cause I’m mad as hell

Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I’m not ready to make nice

I’m not ready to back down

I’m still mad as hell and

I don’t have time to go round and round and round

It’s too late to make it right

I probably wouldn’t if I could

‘Cause I’m mad as hell

Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

Forgive, sounds good

Forget, I’m not sure I could

They say time heals everything

But I’m still waiting

What she said.

Since when just being a unpaid volunteer not make you one of them?

Annabel Park Is Not an Obama Operative

Annabel Park, who created this fan page and ignited the movement, volunteered for Obama in 2008 along with millions of her fellow Americans. She and her partner, Eric Byler, created a YouTube channel for filmmakers to contribute videos supporting Obama (www.youtube.com/unitedforobama). No one got paid.

Prove that you’re progressive and left of the left other wise you are just one of the “roll over and play dead, SFTU” crowd.

    I’ll tell you what’s confusing: Having a “Coffee Party” that’s a focused, grassroots movement that recognizes what a corrupt monstrosity the federal government has become and vowing to return it to its constitutional boundaries then waking up the next day to find that the “Coffee Party” is a completely ambiguous, synthetic astroturf movement … See Morestarted by a White House/Obama insider and with its primary agenda being to lull everyone back into worshipping the federal government and even expanding it further.

    Bitterness and cynicism are the healthy, natural, and corrective responses to being royally screwed over, robbed blind, and pathologically lied too with no end in sight. Our political woes are the result of naive, unfounded optimism, not anger, resentment, and cynicism.

    People sleepin’ in their shoes

  2. …whatever, I don’t trust the Obama gang, they have given me absolutely no reason to.

  3. I had not even heard of this and went on a google trip that took two cups of coffee before I tired of it. The bots and the teabaggers are hilarious. NYT says the Democrats need a ‘Rally Monkey’ and here it is.lol. I found myself agreeing with the nasty web sites of the teabagging variety they are Obama operatives. Hilarious, whatever will the OFA lovers at dkos do with this? Obstructing progress and meeting in the middle? makes my head hurt think I’ll have some more real coffee, this tastes like coffee flavored koolaide.  

             

  4. Everybody wants to go to heaven, nobody wants to die,

    Everybody wants to know the reason without even asking Why?,

    Eveybody wants to be the one to laugh, nobody wants to cry,

    Everybody wants to hear the truth, but people keep on tellin’ lies.

    Just spent the past 20 minutes lookin’ for this damn song. sigh.

    try this I guess. (help me Mr Wizard…?!)

  5. I thought about trying to twist myself into a pretzel and maybe (along with possibly jeffroby and rossL) maybe at least check it out, bend it left, infiltrate (!) or… something. I joined the local FB group and have been conversing there. I spotted a couple of…. types already in there (TMC knows who I mean).

    They had their first start up meeting yesterday but I got too busy and didn’t go, I really debated. But I skipped it. I’ve got their meeting notes afterwards report though.

    Sigh…. then there’s that “Civility Pledge” which was pretty much the dealbreaker for me. What a fucking joke. What is this, the Boy/Girls Scouts? When do I get my Decoder Ring?

    They want everybody to sign on to this:

    As a member or supporter of the Coffee Party, I pledge to conduct myself in a way that is civil, honest, and respectful toward people with whom I disagree. I value people from different cultures, I value people with different ideas, and I value and cherish the democratic process.

    I dont think I can even SUBVERT cuz I wouldnt be able to keep a straight face.

    Might still go to meet other local lefties who chummy up with ever who else I see laughing. lol.

    I dunno, I just can’t do it. Im a lousy liar.

  6. You could play false equivalency all day.  All those nasty righties and lefties trying to take the country to places it has no business being.  You could wag your tongue and sound right and get on Hardball.

    Those were good times.  Good times.  You could be arrogant and high and mighty and just pretend that those nasty far right wingers had nothing to do with what those of your political persuasion failed to do and not even be accused of literally creating those people with a government that is all about politics and nothing about policy that gradually morphs into screwing the little people and just shove under the rug the idea that by creating hopelessness and cynicism you had your own hand in creating is creating those very people, those very know-nothing destructionists.  They’re crazy, I tell you.  Looney tunes wackadoodle terrorists!

    And those awful saboteur vampires — those lefties!  Can’t they see we’re all in this together, as long as the center makes the rules?  They rob us of our mojo, our electrolytes and our precious bodily fluids!  You cain’t hardly get nothin done with them around.  Oh, you cain’t hardly get anythin’ done without ’em around either but that ain’t the same.  They destroy the morale of our elected officials!

    Yeah the center is a great place to be — until you’re under sustained attack by the sides you fed your bitterness and glib condescension to for decades, and they start to outnumber you.

  7. What the hell is a Coffee Party?

    Isn’t coffee what you drink after the party’s over?

    That is, unless you’re a career DLC operative who’s pulled one too many all nighters trying to come up with the silliest way imaginable to distract your erstwhile supporters from understanding how badly you are playing them.

    In that case, you’ve probably also been smoking crack if you think a Coffee Party will save your sorry corporatist ass come election day.

    TheMomCat.  There are plenty of good people with good political intentions that supported Obama in 2008.  And it’s probably not a bad thing that some of them are starting to become independent of OFA (if this girl was ever even involved with OFA).

  8. I can’t recall right now what the Dixie Chicks said.  I know there was a controversy and I know I did support them.

  9. ALWAYS Vote.

    NEVER check off the name of a fascist toady,

    NEVER vote FOR fascist toadies (>95% of thug leadership these days)

    STOP checking off the names of sell outs.

    STOP voting FOR sell outs.

    Always Never Stop.

    vote for me, vote for u, vote for I welcome their hatred…
