fairlane’s Sunday Morning Sermon- Praise Jesus!
TomCat at Politics Plus is Sponsoring a Blogswarm on March 19. If you have yet to sign up, and volunteer your prodigious skills, do so after you finish reading this post (Like you’d skip out on one of my Rants). For more info on the Blogswarm, the picture below will conveniently lead you to where you need to go.
So, lately there’s been a great deal of Lecturing going on in Liberal Blogdom.
People whining about “Negativity,” being “Fair,” “Embracing Hope” and other such Blather.
You know, the kind of Bullshit 21 year old Sociology Majors talk about after reading a couple of passages from some Dimestore Edition of Karl Marx’s Writings.
It never ceases to amaze me how seriously People take Blogging, and more importantly, how Seriously They Take Themselves.
Sure, what’s going on in this country, and the world, is incredibly Important, and possibly our Collective Futures are at stake.
But let’s get a Fucking Grip.
Writing about “Hope,” and a World Filled with Rainbows may make you feel better (Even Superior), but it’s not going to change Jack Shit.
Although I am definitely a Romantic at Heart, I am also a Realist, and the one thing I know for Certain is that Humans don’t do Shangri-La.
(Marx had capitalism Dead to Rights, but he Missed Human Nature by a good Country Mile).
We just don’t do Shangri-La.
Humans are simply Too Selfish.
I’ll be the first to admit, I Am Selfish!
When I was in the Hospital last year, there came a point where I seriously thought I might Die.
My first surgery went off without a Hitch, and I was feeling Great considering the situation. In fact, when the Nurse asked me if I needed anything, I said, “Yes, I need Pizza.”
But that all changed very quickly.
Ten hours after my surgery I started puking every 20 minutes, and I mean like Fucking Clockwork.
“What the Fuck?”
Next thing I know, I’m headed for another CT Scan (Nothing quite like being Injected with Barium Sulfate. That shit made my teeth warm).
After she finished looking at Muh Innards, the Technician wheels me into a waiting room where I continue to Puke off the side of the Stretcher into a Garbage Can.
At this point, my memory (Not unlike my Intestines) is Murky, and all I remember are a few Nurses standing around me trying to help, an Indian guy lowering a Mask over my face telling my to “Breathe Deep,” and this Voice in my head-
“Don’t let me Fucking Die.”
Not once did I think about the War in Iraq, Chimpy, Pickles, Dennis Kucinich, Chuck Norris, Wayne Gretsky, Steroids in Baseball or even the Poor Starving Babies in Biafra.
“Fuck That Stupid Shit, Don’t Let Me Die!”
I know, I’m a Horrible Person, and I’m sure a “Good Liberal” would continue to Pray for World Peace, an End to Global Warming, and for all the Homeless to have a Nice Hot Bowl of Soup for Dinner.
Fuck Them too!
Here’s from where I think the Problem Stems; People believe that by Admitting They are Selfish, they are somehow saying, “I don’t care.”
Idiotic, pure and simple.
So we plaster our blogs with Pictures of Fuzzy Animals, and Picturesque Landscapes singing the Praises of “Bliss on Earth,” and “Goodwill to all of Humankind.”
Maybe I’m deranged, but “Humankind” Pisses Me Off, and I find far too many people to be Boring, and Redundant.
I was watching a Comedian last night, and the only part of his routine that was Funny was when he was talking about how we have an Overabundance of Mediocre People.
He was talking about the Guy in Line Asking Insipid Questions, Holding Everyone Else Captive, as he attempts to sort through the Complexities of Making a Simple Fucking Decision.
“Stop making that Guy!,” was the Comedian’s Solution.
What, you don’t think the Same Thing when you’re out, and about among your Brothers, and Sisters?
You never think, “Jesus Fucking Christ, how can a person be so Damn Stupid? Did their mother Nurse them from a Paint Can?”
Sure, sure, I bet you’ve never thought such things.
“fairlane, I’m a Good Person, and I’d never Judge one of my Fellow Human Beings. After all, we’re all just trying to make it through this world one day at a time.”
You know? People like that are Fucking Mentally Ill.
Seriously, They are Mentally Fucking Ill.
And They, Ironically, are part of the reason Shangri-La is Impossible.
What, how can that be? How can Peace Loving, Rainbow Humping People be the reason the Human Race cannot live in Eternal Bliss?
Simple, they’re lying, and they’re attempting to Suck You into the Fantasy World They Created For Themselves.
A few weeks ago I was reading a comment on another blog where the Commenter was Chastising people for “Name Calling.” According to them it was “Damaging” our message of “Unity,” and what not.
So, being the Curious Sort, I followed them back to their blog, and Lo and Fucking Behold in one of their posts they refer to our Chimperor as “Chimpy.”
I guess what’s good for the Goose ain’t good for the Gander, huh?
But that’s not really a Proper Example because there are plenty of Chameleons who are far more Adept at Concealing Their Disorders.
Here’s the Facts Folks-
We are all Damaged in one way or another. Life Hurts, and “No Gets Out Alive.”
All we have that’s for Certain is “Me, Myself, and I.”
You want to control me? You want to Control your neighbor, girlfriend, boyfriend, your Congressman?
Good Fucking Luck with that, and See You in the Loony Bin.
Can’t you understand that the “Let’s All Hold Hands” People are really Appeasers/Control Freaks? They’re the Dogs who lick at your heels, as they Secretly Plot your Death.
Appeasers are not trying to “Save the World,” they’re trying to Save Themselves at the World’s Expense.
“If people would just stop killing innocent baby Seals, I could finally Live in Happiness. I have to stop them from killing the Baby Seals, No Matter What!”
Now before Jenny Puddingpainties gets herself all Twisted in a Knot, I’m not saying we should be Killing the Baby Seals or act Indifferently to their Plight.
Of course we should care, but get some perspective.
Imagine if people spent as much time working to Save Themselves (Honestly, not vicariously through a “Cause” or “Other People”) how much different this World Would Be.
What if instead of Heading down to the Court House to Protest Chimpy’s Presence or Chaining Themselves to a Tree, People spent 30 minutes a day Honestly Talking to Themselves or Writing Down their Thoughts (No Matter How Heinous) in a Journal or on a Blog?
If People were more Aware of Themselves, about 90% of the World’s Problems would simply Disappear into Oblivion.
True Rebellion has nothing to do with Large Crowds or Chanting Slogans or Holding Signs, True Rebellion is Embracing your Own Humanity in a World where Humanity is Going Extinct.
You, me, Chimpy, are all Flawed, and We Will Never Be Perfect. We will never Agree 100%, and We Will Never Reach a Point Where We All Walk Off into the Sunset Together.
Quit Trying. Leave People Alone. Check Yourself, and Stop Worrying About what I’m Doing.
The “Distraction” we all Bitch about has Nothing to Do With Not Paying Attention to the People Who Are Fucking Us.
We all Know Who’s Fucking Us.
We Just Don’t Want to Admit It.
