When I was in junior high, suddenly, card games were all the rage. I have never been good at games. It was a hard time for me to get into poker, blackjack, and, especially, bullsh*t.
For those unfamiliar with the game, here is wikipedia's explanation:
A comment posted recently at Cleveland.com on the sudden departure of Sabra Scott Pierce, brought this game suddenly to mind. As her colleagues lauded her, my reptilian mind kicked in and I wanted to shout out "Bullsh*t." Fortunately, a commenter framed the circumstances in a more eloquent fashion by calling our council reps out on their "lovefest" and our local tendency to embrace mediocrity from our leaders.
Sadly, this charade never ends and we get set up over and over, again, for the same pitiful representation as the scrub team prepares to elect cleansed felon Jeff Johnson to her vacated position. Enough is enough. I want accountability for my tax dollar invested in my home, my neighborhood and my city. I am tired of games and I am tired of the bullshit.
