I laughed yesterday…
It’s rather gratifying when something happens that more than anything I write, has a far more profound effect in the same direction.
- Either you spent a ton of your one and only life capital the last two years agitating over who was going to rule you next and after all of it, not a thing changed or,
- You got to continue to be part of the slightly bigger mob—after a similar expenditure of your life—so you can continue to dominate the slightly smaller mob. Your virtue is unbounded.
You wasted your time, monumentally so. All of you did. Hell, it wouldn’t have really mattered had Pepsi won over Coke, or if the Senate had changed hands, or the House. …At least it would have shaken the shit up a bit, leaving people to wonder.
Saw somewhere, yesterday:
I voted multiple times this morning. Jimmy Dean won. Sonic lost. Conoco won. Chevron lost. Folgers french vanilla won. Starbucks lost. All will be campaigning again tomorrow.
That’s me, too. I don’t have to worry about getting in the right line so I get to dominate others by force. I’ll buy my own phone and service plan…and, and, should I, out of some weird warp in the time-space continuum, choose Folgers, Starbucks doesn’t have to pay for it.
…For me, there’s nothing more to conclude about America than that it’s an explicitly majority socialist country, now, and that will only grow—everyone clamoring to live at the expense of everyone else. It has seen—without not 1 in 100 people having a clue as to what they were looking at—how the trillions upon trillions of dollars pumped into Western Europe from the Marshall Plan to NATO, US fighter and bomber bases, US Missile installations, massive troop numbers, etc, etc, for the general defense of Western Europe over 4 decades freed them up to build massive cradle-to-grave social systems, which they now rub in our faces. And America wants them all, but with American ingenuity. They want to be even more socialist.
Anything worth doing is worth doing right.
Yesterday convinces me that I’m right about dumping this place as soon as I can. I am embarrassed to be an American, and that’s the damn truth. While I know there are still better than 100 million people I’d love to death around here, most of them don’t vote anyway, and even if they did, there just aren’t enough good people, anymore.
I’m going to eventually move to a different form of socialism. That’s where fruit grows on trees, there’s sunshine year round, and you can spear fish right off the beach.
