Why the Left Will NEVER Rule

(And I mean the true left)

Tonight, I had a meeting to go to. It was for this community endeavor that I'd rather not discuss right now. Nothing illegal, it's just not important to the story. I didn't feel like going, but I dragged my ass out and went into the "big city". I was there 5 minutes early. The next person showed up 15 minutes late. Oh, wait. I'm wrong. Two new people misread the three e-mails and actually showed up an hour early, but seeing as how it's a coffee shop they hung out. But I didn't know they were there for the meeting until the late guy got there. Turns out there's just the 4 of us for the evening. Fine. Whatever. The two new people proceed to talk about everything under the sun except what were there for. They talk over each other and interrupt everyone.

Now those of you who have ever been to a meeting I've run, know I ain't having any of this. But it's not my gig so I just sit there and pretty much stare at my notepad. There was no agenda. Totaled, we discussed the reason for the meeting for about 5 minutes...maybe 7. Hardly anything was taken away in terms of "assignments" for next time.

That is one of two scenarios for lefty meetings. The other one is the opposite. Everyone is super serious, arguments break out and people storm away mad. I've been in those, too. Either way, the true left will never rule.

What about Clinton? What about Obama? Please...they're corporate shills.

Anyway, I was so pissed about that hour of my life that I'll never get back I went to the gym. Fortunately, Gruntmaster Flash and Sir Clank-A-Lot were not there, or there would've been some bloodshed.

UPDATE: I received an e-mail telling me that the meeting was a "huge success". Uh, OK.
