One Of My Greatest Struggles

Republican Shit Head Of The Day Inhofe
Despite my greatest efforts to be a reasoned and insightful guy I am daily pushed further down the path towards the simple belief that conservatives are by and large bad people and liberals are generally better.

It just seems like poor conservatives are stupid and rich ones are patently unable to do anything but lie and make other people's lives worse to their own enrichment.

The lot of them seem to exist for not much reason that I can ascertain. In 1999 I'd just avoid detailed conversations with them. In this day and age I have to remind myself that everything exists in degrees and to come across a more classic variety of conservative is an almost nostalgic experience. These guys I could hang with. Certainly not to th' polling place but far enough to break bread, you know?

What we've suffered from in this country since 2001 is sort of a cult of non-personality. I mean, our leaders seem like such a cabal of pudgy, bland, beset-with-the-complaints-of-late-old-age corporateers that it's almost impossible to conceive that they're as flat-out evil and repugnant and stupid as they are.

I'm really tired of watching them destroy families and get people killed by the hundreds of thousands. Also, I'm tired of being considered a coward because I have a problem with sending the cherished children of complete strangers off to die for nothing. Would giving that the thumbs-up constitute bravery? Explain.

Also, explain why we should be suspicious about a regime that would consider using tax revenues for providing social benefits to poor Americans and not be suspicious of a regime that considers it a higher good to use the public moneys to kill brown folk by the hundreds of thousands. I'm fucking waiting. The hypocrisy and evil fuckin' rebounds on itself until it's like you're playing raquetball with a big steel pellet in a 4X4 rubber room.

I'm looking forward to the next several months. At best it will do for modern conservatism and neoconservatism and the implied credo of Money-Over-Everything what the collapse of the Soviet Union did for communism. Maybe it'll just be something we had to go through for the greater good.

And let's remember- LET'S REMEMBER WITH GREAT PREJUDICE that this whole shitwave rolled in on a tide of "Moral Valyooz".

It's one of my greatest struggles. And it comes at a time of great upheaval and crisis for me. And I sort of don't fucking appreciate that. This is th' time when I'm supposed to be getting my ducks in a row for th' back forty and instead I'm struttin' and screechin' from one booze-soaked juke joint to another because the THOUGHT OF PARTICIPATING IN THE WHOLE THING makes me want to eat some delicious glass. I can't picture being th' fuck in it, man. I know, I KNOW I'll pay but maybe there's a way without being IN IT. IN IT.

I quit playing so I could be a responsible adult. I tried for a long time to get IN IT. But I just made myself miserable, and for what? A nice retirement? Nothing's nice when you're miserable.

I'm goin' back someday.

I hear you. I so fucking hear you.
I left off corporate cocksucking in 93 to go freelance and swore I'd never go back. Then I did, in order to come to California and live the good life. But now somehow I've got stuck in this work-to-pay-the-rent-so-you-can-live-here-to-work shit. How in the hell did that happen?
One thing's looking certain, which is that it won't last, and that worries me. The back 40 worries me too. Tell you what: when we're old, should we survive that long, if you'll guard my shopping cart while I sleep, I'll return the favour.
