Carter was the worst president in modern American history.
At least he didn't appease terrorists...
actually... what he did do was attempt to initiate visionary policies that
created short-term pain in favour of long-term gain... but... the ADD types
who are so addicted to their luxurious pampering are still too blind and
ignorant to realize that many of today's problems surrounding energy would
not now have such a dire impact on the standard of living they still don't
realize they're failingly fighting to preserve without realizing their
approach is akin to this following joke:
(it's an oldie, so... with it are the requisite stereotypes)
a bum feels an intense need to take a crap but sees nowhere to relieve
himself and so, drops his duty on the street... in an attempt to hide the
result of his action, he places his hat over it when a friend approaches him
and says, "what's that under yer hat?"
embarrassed, he stammers a bit and spurts out, "it's a fast".
"oh?" his friend looks on quizzically, "what's a fast?"
committed to his story, the bum quickly invents an explanation, "oh... uh...
it's just... fast. it's just soooo fast that the only way to stop it from
getting away is to totally cover it'.
his friend becomes even more intrigued, "what does it look like?"
he shot back, "nobody knows, ya idjit! it's faaast! so fast nobody's ever
his friend's eyes light up, "I wanna see it!"
paralyzed by fear at the thought of his actions being discovered he pleaded,
"yew can't! it's too fast!"
his friend's eyes narrowed and gleamed with an idea, "tell you what... I'll
hold my hands around the hat so it can't go anywhere while you lift it!"
he realized he had no choice but to agree while his friend cupped his hands
steadily around the hat and so, he slowly began lifting it. his friend
quickly reached in and grabbed the still steaming pile of moist refuse and
as he squeezed, his eyes popped with amazement. "it sure is fast! I can feel
it slipping through my fingers!"
and so... some might ask the point of this joke... others might understand
exactly how it represents the reichtoid idiotology... whoever reads this can
easily identify and choose their affiliation by the sort of mindset is
represented within it... and how one deals with the consequences of their
carter was only the "worst" from the perspective of those who still fail to
see that his energy policies would have avoided what will be an increasingly
more painful transition away from our fossil-teats and his mid-east policies
would have avoided the mega-trillions being dumped into killing the people
today who have become mindlessly enraged by the inept meddling of
foreigners... had both of his visions been followed in these two areas
alone, this world would have been in a FAR better place than it is today...
and all that was required back then was a little "belt-tightening"... and
ultimately, far less "belt-tightening" than will be required for future if
the regressive, albatross-like reichtoids of today have their way... ;-)
