French Roast Government

Have you ever tried French Roast coffee? It's so burned and bitter that it's undrinkable. You can add sugar, you can dump in half-and-half, you can pour in flavored sweeteners like hazelnut or vanilla, but the damn shit is still undrinkable. The problem is not the additives, it's the coffee. Our government is like French Roast coffee. Stimulus plans don't work, infrastructure spending won't work, bank bailouts sure didn't work. Our government has become burned and bitter, and there's only one thing left to do--quit trying to fix it and kick it to the curb.

  1. If your french roast coffee is bitter than you are doing something wrong. French roast ("dark roast") coffee actually is less acidic than medium roast coffee. What *is* true is that if you buy "french roast" coffee from Starbucks, what you're getting is a coffee that is overground and over-roasted to the point of being burnt. But that's a problem with Starbucks, not french roast coffee, which I drink every morning (duh, I'm from Looizianer, where we are, err, French).

    And agreed that our government is dysfunctional, but it's dysfunctional because people forgot that in a democracy government is We The People, and allowed a bunch of jerkwads and vicious cretins to take over. Every one of those bastards in Congress is there because somebody voted for him. Every single goddamned election, people go out and vote for some of the most evil sonofabitches that ever walked on this planet. This isn't a dictatorship, this is a representative democracy, and in the end, we get the government we vote for -- and deserve. Alas.
