Don't let the winter get you down, there's good news all round.
Obama is going to spend his final years as president attacking the grumpy and sour faced republicans where it hurts most. Taxes'll zoom and the rich'll end up paying for everything and everybody. It's easy when you know how! Healthcare? Don't mention it. Just wait and see. The whole point about capitalism is to make the rich pay for the poor then everyone's more or less happy. Except for the whining rich of course, but their number is so small who cares? It's surprising nobody thought of this before?
So why didn't Obama do this earlier? That's simple. Electoral demands! First win your election - after all you cant do anything unless you're in office - then sweep into action. And as he isn't up for any more elections and has nothing to lose, and still has a reputation to make as a caring president not like Bush, so let's throw discretion to the wind and make a final splash that'll have 'em all running for umbrellas. And then there's the sly rumors around the American economy is on the mend again for a few weeks (that's a bit of luck, how did that happen? though you shouldn't believe all you read) and with additional luck there won't be anymore really noticeable wars till after Hilary gets in, so you might say everything's fine.
Obama's winning. The greatest, most peace loving president we've ever had. Didn't he close Guantanamo? Didn't he get the Peace Prize and stop the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? Hasn't he been the great hope for capitalism as a living and caring system that only wants peace, love, prosperity and health for everyone on the planet? And then there is The Planet. What about the planet? Didn't this amazing capitalist president in love with the environment like politicians everywhere, especially when it can be commoditized and sold for profit, even stop the US drilling for oil in Arctic Alaska for a couple of years, and introduce Fracking instead? What a clever Machiavellian presidential move. The devastating effects of this obnoxious Fracking technique dont show up for years and now the victorious US capitalist economy - the very basis of universal alienated freedom! - is released for ever from the slimy shackles of the Arabian mafia, typical foreigners, only out for a quick buck. Well, till the oil dries up at least. Oh yes! Another triumph for US capitalist know-how. Let the world look on and learn how to exploit and get away with it.
In fact the world does look on and it's rulers and current owners, do go on exploiting both humanity and the planet with ever intoxicated fury. Democracy continues to grind us all down, to wear us all out with lies and promises of money and a better future that constantly recedes so that the rich can go on screwing the world unfettered and for ever. Is their end not in sight yet? Or will they only end with the end of the world itself as we know it? All pollution, famine and climate catastrophes.
But, as was said at the start, don't let the winter get you down. Hasn't the mighty Cameron, UK PM, and new Obama buddy, not promised FULL EMPLOYMENT in the UK should the Tories get a majority in the next election? Wow! There's a thought! Makes you wonder why we've had under and unemployment so extensively for the last five years. Was it all just a deliberate mistake? Was it just an exercise in precarity like how to use a bomb shelter in case of war, Anyway, with a wave of his upgraded super silicone coated wifi controlled wand the new Wizard of Oz, or Wizard of Uk, with support from which ever bourgeois democratic party of slime, on left or right of capitalism, chooses to help him out, will if returned as supremo, now guarantee an underpaid, totally mind and body destroying job for everybody alive in the country. What horror. Only death offers escape! Or proletarian revolution! Ahh!
