I'm sure everyone is familiar with the feeling of time dragging on forever when you're doing something really boring or unpleasant. This often occurs when you're getting a root canal, waiting at the DMV or picking up the new Britney Spears album because your niece has to have that for Christmas. This effect has been constant for me lately and it's getting stronger.
Today it's twice as bad as yesterday. It's not a mystery why this effect is happening, but its growing intensity was. That is until I realized it stemmed from this gem: Obama Spokesman Says 'Obama Ready to RULE on Day 1'.
Her saying that wasn't a slip of the tongue, it may have been an accident, but the sentiment was true. The aristocrats with their golden calf god finally have (almost) total power in the US. They won't be benevolent, despite their propaganda claiming they're for the people, no, they will be typical despots and dictators. They're already planning on crushing any dissent in Congress and planning on crushing any dissent through free speech. They'll soon crush parts of the Constitution, the first, second, thirteenth and, most likely, the twenty-second amendment. Crushing everyday people won't be off limits, heck it won't even be a challenge for them. The media wing of the Democratic party will make any such events look justified.
Since last Tuesday it's felt like months have crept by, slow painful massive chunks of time. Today it's much worse, who knows what tomorrow will bring. Obama hasn't even been inaugurated yet, only six days have passed since he won the election. This makes me long for a root canal instead - at least a root canal is over within two days. Today it feels like a year has passed since last Tuesday and I have four more actual years minimum of this to look forward to.
His reign will feel virtually like forever, I'll be immortal. Time to buy a sword and start practicing, there can be only one after all.
