We won't get fooled again
Nothing big, nothing specific..... just hacking at the tropical rhubarb of anxiety that is growing in the head, whacking at the emotional banana plants, stumbling over the rotting stumps of past bad decisions, plus... I was accused, (slightly, perhaps in jest), of being a bigot.
So, here's the deal... the political thing has boiled itself down to a joke. It just boggles me. The rhetoric is so banal and insensate that it makes me gag just thinking about it. Who are these people....? ... and I just do not mean the politicians... all the commentary about them, and then the commentary about the commentary. I won't comment about that.
I made contact, or rather he made contact with me, with someone from high school (screwy FB) who now sends me notes about people who have died in my old home town, religious tracts he thinks are relevant and republican-ish thoughts.
I can't begin to comment.
I think someone called me a bigot... I think... 'cause I looked through the comments and I didn't see a comment that anyone could have misunderstood.... but then, snark can cloud things. At first I was a little upset, and even a little mad.... and then I just let it go. There are roads to walk today, and I am all out of peanut butter.. and mad just isn't working today.
That's my only comment.
So, no one has died... the politics suck, I am not a bigot... and if I have any prejudices isn't just that my chemicals get jostled around sometimes.... it's like getting gas... and it goes away.
the thing of it is.... from the radio to the TV, from FB to Blogger... it just seems that everyone is apt to be telling me what to believe... and I don't believe me
all that much, so why should I believe them?
"Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain."
.... cause he ain't no wizard, and there ain't no yellow brick road.... and Dorothy never really left Kansas ...
and it ain't no deal.
leave a comment, eh!
