I try sarcasm but I suck at it.
Intelligent? Who knows.
All I know is that this entire society of ours has a humongous problem and we're just sort of "ok" with it. We have a crappy two party system where
each side races to the finish line (aka: ignorance) and spouts off that the other side if the whole of evil! Those damn liberals are waging an
untitled race war! They want everything for nothing! They want "their version" of equality where people who "didn't work for it" gets stomped
Meanwhile, the conservatives want so badly to believe that philanthropy and voluntary trickle down with no wage minimum to work so badly that they are
willing to work hard to cut programs to people who are already destitute all along saying "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" despite that those
straps were cut in half a long time ago. They cry "war on Christianity" and ignore the war on women and LGBT and anyone else who doesn't fit the
But wait! The liberals are no better off. They think that every single person deserves a medal. Look that's great for a 5-6 year old intramural
soccer team, but the fact is competition is needed. It may not be perfect but if remove competition, then innovation goes with it. Equality means that
everyone should start on the same footing, same pedestal and with the same opportunities. But beyond that, if a person chooses to make no effort, then
why should their be a reward?
How about women's equality? I love how people laugh it off as total BS. Meanwhile women are objectified, and told that if they sleep with someone
they are a (not saying the word) and if they don't they are an ice queen. If women stay home they aren't doing enough to support the family. If they
work then they should be home with the kids. And how dare a woman try to climb a corporate ladder! They MUST have been sleeping their way to the top
But yeah....no misogyny doesn't exist. That's exactly why women can walk down the street and know that nobody will cat call, leer, made lewd
comments or...(well we all know other things that happen that make me shudder to the core)
What else? Oh yes! All Islam is evil! All Muslim is evil! Gay? You must have made that choice. Trans? You don't even exist.
Crippling economy? "My guy!" He will fix it. Yeah...just like every chance they had. Obama is the worst president ever? Yeah maybe. Are we just
going to forget Bush and his destructive spending?
Every argument is an exercise is blowing off hot air yet no matter how much it happens, here we are thinking how righteous we are. Myself included.
We live in a society where Kim Kardashian's 12 second marriage and Kylie Jenner's possibly fake breasts are more important than two wars, terrorism
and poverty. We live in a society where the few bastions of TV that taught things now have fake reality TV such as Pawn Stars and the 5 other off
shoots of that show.
We care about Tom Brady and his possibly deflated footballs more than the whole of our current political state.
But sometimes, I think the worst of all of it is this. When somebody acts rudely, offensively and in an aggressive manner, the person who calls them
out are looked at as the problem. Eric Garner is choked to death...illegally...and the guy who recorded it on his phone was indicted.
So Buzzy? I don't know if I fit the bill for who you are looking for. But this is what I see. Am I intelligent? Maybe average. But I see it out
there. Most importantly, I see my own faults and mistakes too....and there are plenty
