Today’s post is going to be smaller than the normal monster posts you’re used to, but that’s just because I had to write this up and get it up now. Sometimes something is too important to bury it amongst a bunch of other stuff.
I’m usually a pretty calm guy. Most people who know me know this. But there are rare cases where I get legitimately mad, and no I don’t mean when a League of Legends match is going poorly (my exclamations there are just to blow off steam). The situations I’m talking about are those when injustice, ignorance and ignoble acts of disseminating misleading information are perpetrated to the detriment of the innocent.
And I’m mad as hell right now.
The source of my anger stems directly from the two clips at this link and I do not provide these links lightly. Please, please watch them. I know they are meant to be humorous, and they are. Humor is a fantastic way of piercing through the facade of the monstrous. The reality of the situation behind these funny videos is what appalls me.
And to all the Class Warfare stuff? It’s like a guy pulling the trigger on an AK-47 into a crowd going, “What do you mean war?” More like Class Massacre. Yeah, it could be worse, but it damn well should be better.
I am not poor. Well, I am, but I don’t fit the definition of the poorest of the poor that inhabit the lowest 50%. I feel like I will have a hard time making ends meet in my life but… damn. I don’t have HALF the problem that half of Americans do. What the hell is wrong with this country? Fifty percent of our population is living in near third world conditions. OMG 99% of the poor have a refrigerator THOSE FAT CATS! Good GOD! (and yes, I am appealing to God here) How dare they get a free ride, eh? How dare they feed their children unspoiled food that they can barely afford.
This blows my mind. I really don’t have anything to say. I’m not even putting up a poll for this shit. I am done here. If you feel like the 50% of Americans who hold a whopping 2.5% of America’s total wealth are getting a “free ride” so that they, I don’t know, don’t starve to death, then I don’t want to hear from you. Your ability to show compassion is so minimal it’s inhuman. Get off my site.
What I will post a poll about is this little article I found about seven ways Rick Perry wants to change the constitution. There are all sorts of topics I could talk about here. From his hypocrisy about the Constitution being a near-holy document that is wrong to change, and then he is okay with all of this, to the hypocrisy about big government in some areas (abortion, gay marriage) and eviscerated government in others (healthcare), to his strides to eliminate checks and balances in Washington and other problems I have with just about all of these, but I’ll leave that alone for now. I want to hear what you think.
That’s my rant for today folks. If this has made you at least half as mad as it made me, remember this come time to vote. Good-bye for now!
