You'll Get Over It

We've seen the above phrase over and over again in the comment section of this blog. We didn't really care that someone has the lack of originality to post such an apathetic sentiment - at least at first.

Unfortunately, we're concerned that the poster or posters that are repeatedly inserting their apathy into sometimes thoughtful and sometimes nonsensical discussions really do represent a danger that is far more significant than we first believed. The attitude revealed in those four little words could describe what's really wrong with our city, our state, and even our country.

We all expect to "get over it." No matter how many laws are broken or how many freedoms are usurped, we'll "get over it." That's what those who would steal our freedoms count upon - our apathy and our basic unwillingness to do anything about it.

That simple sentiment shows a willingness to accept mediocrity and to eschew achievement. For those who strive to achieve, the acceptance of the mediocre or the resignation to a fate that is not within their control is unacceptable. Those who believe in accomplishment cannot and will not simply "get over it." Those who can "get over it" are condemned to a fate far worse than failure - a fate of never having set a goal, a fate of never reaching that goal, and a fate of never having truly lived to achieve their dreams.

So go ahead and continue to post your apathy and your acceptance of the mundane. You will never rise above your current position of your own accord and by your own merit. You may get bigger more powerful titles and you may even make more money... But you will never truly be in charge of your own destiny because there will always be someone else to which you are in debt - not a debt of honor but a debt of servitude. The good news is that despite the shackles that bind you and the acceptance of your own servitude... you'll get over it.

You are the one or ones that cant get over it. That is why you relish in this trash. You got your feelings hurt somewhere along the line and I suspect it has something to do with what you felt you were owed. You didnt get it and now you "Blog" to attack what YOU feel is wrong. What a cop out.

Great blog in addressing the person who has no ambition, no drive,no self respect and no ethics or morals. This person I suspect is on the city payroll and was given yet another 80k a year job, in exchange for the 'yes man'
shackles. He/she ( I suspect she, nutless)accepts that they cannot achieve anything on their own and choose the cowards way out by being bought and paid for like a little whore for Marty & company, even if they don't internally beleive who they represent or what they're doing, all for the sake of money and job security.
What a pathetic individual.

Get over it was first spoken by Republicans when Democrats continuously brought up the conclusion of the 2000 presidential election. The race was handed to Bush by 5 Republican appointed judges with 2 Democrats and 2 Republican judges in opposition. GET OVER IT was the only reply by the Republicans who supported the taking of our most fundamental right, voting.

When a Democrat tells a Republican to get over it, they are only repeating the words of the group that stood solidly behind an administration that destroyed the Republican Party. They lied their way into a war that made Iran more powerful.

Sidebar: read any number of authors inside the administration who tell us this is true. The most recent is Scott McClellannbut do not forget O’Neal and Clarke.

We should also not forget Katrina, the deficit, gas prices, Enron, the mortgage crisis (this one is not a crisis according to you), outing CIA agents, no bid contracts, torture, the US Attorney scandal, the economy, Pat Tillman, the VA hospitals, vetoing the new GI bill, and the list could continue.

When a Democrat and Independents say get over it, look at the list above and see everything the rest of the country has had to get over because of the inept policies of this administration. Those of your ilk first uttered this phrase, and I am positive you said nothing about your fellow Republicans.

Bottom line is those that have all the gold rule. Well, we have the most gold, so we rule. Follow OUR rules and if you don't like it, get out! Our rules our game. Basically, we will do what ever we want to whom ever and no one can do anything about it. We contol everything.

So, get over it!

Officer Hamby, where is all the money from the ballon pins?

As an occasional poster to this blog, and having had a couple of my postings dismissed by the "you'll get over it" taunt, I'm pleased that The Eye has now commented. Since The Eye has now (rightfully I believe) decided to examine the posts prior to posting, and since a comment limited to those four words connot possibly contribute anything of value to the discussion, I hope The Eye will electronically "round-file" all such postings.

The deeper problem of apathy amongst the populace is a harder nut to crack. If Albuquerque's collective political sensibilities were even one-tenth that of this country's Founding Fathers, the RLC's would have been pulled up by their roots and stacked ion a pile on Civic Plaza, surrounded by thousands of people lightin' up their Lucky's, talking to their friends crusing around the block on cellphones. And Marty would never have even gotten his first term, or at least after the Airport Observation deck debacle, his second and third.

So with much sadness I must "get over" the fact that the city I
loved growing up in, and returned to 15 years ago is on a rocket-sled to ruination because the collective wisdom of the voting population of ABQ is roughly akin to that of the village idiot's.

"Enron was Clinton buddy" The meth is really kicking in...I guess Ken Lay had nothing to do with crafting the energy policy when he had his secret meeting with Cheney. Gold known no party lines and the more bankruptcy is universal...

Above comment; "population of ABQ is roughly akin to that of the village idiot's"
Perfect !!
Nail squarly on the head.
The citizenry and voting public are too dumb to see through this administration's bullshit and corruption.
In other words, their just too damn dumb to live.
That's why the corrupt prick that has a job with this administration and is the beneficiary of immoral, theft, and corruption and has little regard for tax payers money and has absolutly no moral compass can easliy spout, "Get over it"
Two words for you, you spinless , no ethic prick; 'fuck yourself' PC.

Have you seen Hamby's new house, way too expensive for a cop's salary. I wonder where she got ALL the money to build such a large home. I would say it's about a 750k home. How does a cop afford that!

To: "Those with gold rule."

Wow, you said it all, with that statement. You proved what the eye & posters have been posting the past several years.

You have the gold so you rule, you don't have to be educated, you don't care about anything or anyone, but the money.

But it will catch up to you and this cancerous administration. Your destiny will seize you and soon you'll be a nobody without Marty. What goes around comes around. So be prepared for a future of tragedy for you and your family. But, "you'll get over it"

ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
