As I'm sitting here contemplating one of the topics on a nearby forum, It dawned on me... Reality is just too damn confusing. People are confusing.
Why is there so little consistency in the world, in what we say and do? Confused? Join the club.
Just 16 years ago, people stood on two different sides of the political fence, just as they do today, based on their supposed ideals and upbringings.
At that same time, half of the country and possibly half of the world believed that the masters of the 'other side' were responsible for atrocities,
totally ignoring any details of the lost lives that came from it. We ignored the people that died and only turned our focus on the murder itself and
pointed finger after finger of blame.
In that day... Republicans were guilty and the Democrats were there to make sure they knew about it. After all, it was the Republicans that pulled us
into war over some "wag the dog" scenario, when really the whole issue from the start was an "inside job".
Republicans were war mongers. They hated everything around them. How DARE they go to war without the consent of the people and for total BS reasons
with no proof at all!!! The criminals MUST be brought to justice. When this wasn't done, they were with fierce anger. Criminals! All of them
Criminals! ...and they were free to do what they wanted. The republican people wouldn't hold them accountable and there was hatred and anger and
much sadness... Oh, but not such anger and hatred as today...
Fast forward (or snap to) the present and look around and you see the same thing... Corruption, lies, and pardoned criminal activity abound! Leaders
not following the rules and making them up as they go, criminal activities going unpunished as though they were immune from law and order, the same
laws imposed on the people but not for the powerful.
Once again, we focus on the wrong and we point the finger from one end to the other but we forgot all of those who were harmed. Hell... we didn't
even care. We just knew that people were affected by it all, yet we didn't give a damn of who... unless it affected us and our own family, of
But... The confusing... The oddity of it all is... It's all the same people but we all simply just walked to the other side. We didn't switch
sides, we simply changed out minds to the other side... all of us.
Today it's the same as 16 years ago. The only things is... Democrats aren't protesting wars... They're begging for one. Democrats aren't trying
to stand against corruption and illegal activity, they're trying to pardon the guilty for it and ignore the issues.
Republicans are pointing the finger of blame.... Can't anyone see how the roles totally reversed here in only 16 years? Everything said then is
said now but by the other side. Everything done then is done now... except by the other side. The only difference this time around...
The hatred is SO MUCH MORE! We're hating long time friends for their side in this presidency. We're unfriending long time friends for posts
displayed against their own candicate or for the opposition. It's sad! But the Hippocrates! Man... The madness of it all.
Am I the only one seeing this? Why do I feel that so many people are blind to their own BS? It feels like people are against a person because of a
person and not for the purpose or ideals of that person. There is no sharing. No one remembers why democracy is the way it is or why it functions
the way it does. Now it's all about "My person didn't win so the system is broken... SCRAP THE SYSTEM!".
...and yet, I think the worst of it all is that so many people are ok with cheating so long as their side wins! We're so ok with corruption because
it's not the other guy and our person can do no wrong, yet still, we'll just go ahead and say something against the other person that applies to our
own candidate even more so than the one we're tossing the crap at.
Some days I look around and say to myself... "People just can't be this damn stupid and childish"!
...or am I just that bloody confused?
