The only thing the candidates agree on is that we are the 99% and they would prefer that we stay there. In that sense, you are all my people,
some of you are just smarter than the others...
You know, I feel much the same. You and I don't always agree, hell; I'd say there are a great number of us who don't agree. There are some occasions
when I fantasize about snatching people through the screen and throttling the stupid out of them, I'm not gonna lie. But I still try to get through to
them anyway because, at the end of the day; when all this stupid sh!t is over with...we're all going to be left with the same old problems, the same
old unresolved issues that we've always had.
Only this time around, this
crank of another wheel in the Machine...we're going to be facing it badly divided. We have not just been played. We
have been weakened as a nation. They know that in the phrase 'United We Stand, Divided We Fall' are powerful words of truth. So they've infected us
with virulent hatred, with paranoia and fear, to make us weak and scattered.
And while it's all too easy to blame people for being in denial, many of them (not all, let me be clear, some people really just are
stupid) are grasping for any shred of a possibility that they have not been swindled into reacting emotionally and abandoning rationality to put into
motion something that is diametrically opposed to everything they truly care about regarding the future of this nation. It's too late to change the
outcome; if more people had seen it sooner I'm not sure it would have mattered, but if we don't find a way to pull together, we will all lose. We will
lose our freedom, what's left of our dignity, and; if the alarming situation with Russia continues to escalate, which I fully believe is a looming
possibility, even our lives.
I didn't mean to turn this into a rant, and I apologize, but goddammit...we are all
going to lose here if we don't get our collective ass in
gear and start paying attention to the things that actually do matter here. I don't give a damn about Hillary and her diapers or whose p*ssy Donald
may or may not be groping.
He's a miserable piece of washed up, overblown sh!t, and she's the f*cking Antichrist, and they're probably drinking goblets of infant blood while
playing a hearty game of demonic Wack-a-Mole with baby seals and a croquet mallet on the White House lawn with G.W. and Obama right now, laughing at
all of the people who actually thought this ridiculous farce of an election actually mattered. All is as planned.
Something very unpleasant is on the horizon, and it'll be the 99% who will feel its impact. But just like any crisis or threat, if we start working
together, I believe we can lessen that impact. I can look past the stupidity and the unbelievable naivety...even though sometimes it makes me roll my
eyes so hard I can practically check out my own ass...because I am, frankly, frightened at the prospect of a world in which they no longer have the
right to believe and say whatever ridiculous nonsense they please. And from where I'm sitting, that is looking more and more possible every minute.
Anyway...I guess I really needed to get that off my chest, haha. But I mean it. I have a very bad feeling that I cannot shake. I hope I'm wrong. I
hope you all get to make many jokes at my expense and that of others who have tried to get people to see what we see. But in case everything goes
completely sideways in the immediate future, I'm still going to hang in to the bitter end with the rest of the 99%.
I would like to throw a disclaimer out there though; for the perpetually, pathologically stupid...those who refuse to see because they're more
interested in keeping score, I'll pity them. But that's all. I'm done wasting my time.
