A Green Plastic Watering Can
Golly Gee Willickers, what an eventful beginning to April. We had death threats, rape apologists, and all around mayhem.
Just like I drew it up some months ago.
i was going to write a post about the Seminars I used to give on Rape/Sexual Assault Prevention in response to a series of comments left by the Rape Apologist, but Suzi took care of that for me (Thanks Suzi), and I don’t think he’s coming back anyway.
So, what should we do instead?
Well, while things were going apeshit over here this past weekend, I spent a little time Trolling a few Wingnut blogs.
I know, it’s wrong, and immature, but it’s also Fucking Funny, and after a few exchanges with Average Wingnut, I find myself completely stumped as to how Democrats keep losing to these people. They can’t organize a coherent sentence, much less a Voting Drive.
My favorite Wingnut Dives are those Anti-Muslim blogs.
There must be ten thousand of them, and they all say the same thing,
“I don’t know any Muslims, and I live in my Mother’s Basement, but, Trust Me on this one; They’re All out to Kill Us!!”
In a Town Full of Rubber Plans
I don’t even attempt to debate them. Nope. I get right to the Mocking.
Johnny Wingnut, and I decided that when you’re debating someone you’d more than likely hate in real life, it’s best to go straight to the “Fuck You’s,” and eliminate the Superfluous Chatter.
It at least allows me to vent a little, and to pay a few of those assholes back for their, “Fuck you Niggers,” and “Die Liberal Scum” comments they like to leave on occasion.
I think I’ve been clear that Liberals irritate me, but Goddamn, the Wingnuts seem to have a plethora of Fucking Morons in their Camp. At least the average Liberal can write a complete sentence, and/or come up with something relatively original.
The Pathological Stupidity of Average Wingnut is beyond Comprehension.
One of the guys (I’m assuming he’s a male because I don’t think women are allowed to be so Fucking Ignorant), couldn’t even come up with his own insults. Instead, he’d cut and paste mine replacing “Douche Bag,” with “Liberal.”
Yep, I was having a “I know you are, but what am I?” argument with a Grown Man.
What can I say?
In my defense, I only started haranguing the Tweezer Penis because he was Cry Babying about being “Persecuted” by one of the members of a Blog Alliance to which Jonestown belongs.
I hate it when people toss around words like “Persecuted,” “Oppressed,” etc.
Being loaded into a cattle car, and getting shipped to Dachau is “Persecution.”
Being called a Hateful Dumb Ass, is not. Especially when you are a Hateful Dumb Ass.
Dave wrote an interesting post about Dumbasses.
I Can’t Help to Feel
I’m not sure where I stand when it comes to the Apparent Epidemic of Mouth Breathing in this Country.
I guess the Father in me wants to believe people are just Worn Out, and/or Lazy because that means things can get better, and that Bella won’t have to grow up in a world surrounded by Meat Eating Dimwits.
But the doubt lingers, and I often find myself agreeing with J.W.,
“You’re right, people are just Fucking Dumb. “
My former Supervisor was a Prime Example of Stupidity Cubed.
He used to come in every single morning, and say,
“Gooood Moorrrning fairlane!”
I Shit You Not.
Every fucking day, like he was Robin Williams, and I was Forest Whitaker (Damn, Robin Williams is Bloody Irritating).
And It Wears Me Out
Wingnut for sure (My former Boss that is).
He was in the Army Reserves, and spent some time in Iraq, which is Admirable,
He worked on a base in the “Green Zone,” and never entered a Combat Area the entire time he was there. But to hear him tell it, you’d think he spent Six Months on Hamburger Hill.
Lying was something of a hobby for him.
One time he had cards printed up that said he was a “Professional Engineer,” and he’d go to job sites handing out his card to existing, and/or prospective customers.
The problem was, he didn’t have an Engineering Degree, and you can’t be a “Professional Engineer” without an Engineering Degree.
I know, who knew?
He did have an Associate’s Degree in “Construction Management” or some other made up Sounding Bullshit.
He was also a Drunk.
I know I’m supposed to have more Compassion, since I used to work as a Counselor with Alcoholics, and Drug Addicts, but-
If a person in their 50’s is still getting drunk every day, the odds are overwhelmingly against them ever stopping. Sure it happens, but it’s an Anomaly.
Ultimately, you have to take into consideration that Alcoholism, and Drug Addiction, despite Gus Rimjob’s claims, are not “Victimless Crimes.”
Addiction destroys families, and the Dumbshits kill people.
Old J-Man used to come into work Drunker than Chimpy after a visit to the Frat House.
He’d waddle in all red faced, eyes blood shot, and his nose-
A Cracked Polystyrene Man
He had one of those Big Puffy Alcoholic Noses like our friend here, Mr. Charles Bukowski (Imagine, if you will, Brian Dennehy with Bukowski’s Nose).
Did I mention he came in late too?
Yep, almost every day.
He was supposed to be in by 8:00 am, after all, he was the “Boss,” but that didn’t stop him from Meandering in at 9:00, 9:30, 10:00, hell, sometimes even 11:30.
And his lunch breaks.
“I’m going to Lunch,”
Leave time-12:00 pm.
Return time-3:30 pm. (If he returned).
“Hmmm, I wonder what J was doing?”
Whatever he was doing, didn’t pay off, and not long after I left, Old J Man had his Fat Ass Demoted.
Funny how Companies suddenly get all Conscientious, once they start Losing Money.
Speaking of Zombies-
J. Krishnamurti compared the way most people live to Teeth Brushing.
Like the Real Thing
If you’ve never read J. Krishnamurti-
He’ll piss you off, and Lower your Self-Esteem.
But his image of People Mindlessly Going Through Life is, Pretty Fucking Accurate.
Murt maintains that the Mind is a Prison-
It knows nothing other than the Already Known, and is therefore incapable of Experiencing Life in any True Sense of the Word.
Everything is Filtered Through the Past.
According to J.K., Most People spend their Entire Lives Immersed in Their Thoughts/Feelings, and because Thoughts/Feelings are Intangible, and Perpetually in Motion, they have No Solid Connections to the World, and more importantly, to Themselves.
In the Fake Plastic Earth
This is why the world is the way it Is.
I recognize that may seem Abstract. After all, our Thoughts/Feelings are what direct us, and even shape us, but you Must Look Beyond the Superficial.
For example, Our Political Leanings are not Who We Are. They are merely a Tangible Expression of Who We Are.
But many People Define themselves based on their Politics.
“I’m Pro-Choice, therefore I support, and respect Women.”
But is that Necessarily True?
Only “Pro-Life” men Rape, Kill, Neglect, Use, and Abuse Women?
Being “Pro-Choice” does not mean a person Respects Women, yet we often come to that conclusion about not only ourselves, but others as well.
We are defining Ourselves/Others based on a Thought/Feeling, but we are Far More than Thoughts/Feelings.
In fact, One could Easily Argue, and I’m One, that if we truly “Respected Women,” we’d work toward a day when Abortions were no longer Necessary/Needed/Considered.
Arguing over whether it should be Legal or Not, is Merely a Distraction, and in the end, Accomplishes Nothing.
I Could Blow Through the Ceiling
I am the Epitome of the Pathological Thinker. My mind is Forever in Motion, and I imagine if Opiates didn’t make me Nauseous, I’d be taking Vicodin by the handful to slow the Damn thing down.
But they do, so, I don’t, and it doesn’t.
I Think (See?) this is why I Was/Am drawn to Krishnamurti, and his Philosophy (He’d say it’s not a Philosophy at all. It simply, Is).
Although, I do not consider him to be my Personal Guru or necessarily Follow His Teachings, I do believe there is a Great Deal of Truth, and Logic in His Words.
My Fake Plastic Love
When you look at the World in which we all live, from the Insane to the Mundane, there is a Thread that connects the Majority of our actions.
Above all else, the Human Mind Desires the One Thing it Cannot Have-
And like a Spider, it grabs onto everything within Reach.
In Dave’s post, the discussion centered around, “Why are People the way they are? Are they Stupid? Lazy? Both?”
Personally, I believe “People are the way they are” because the Mind is intentionally Lazy, and because People are Terrified.
American Culture Avoids, in such a Profound Way, the only True Connection we all Share-
We are Petrified by the Idea of Death, and the Impermanence of Life. So much so, we are Willing, even Happy, to live our Lives Encased in Banality because it creates the Illusion of Immortality.
“I always watch such, and such at 8:oo pm, and I always will.”
Living in a world of Incessant Distraction, and Routine allows the Mind to Ignore the Fact that it is Disintegrating.
By “Brushing Our Teeth” through Life, we give ourselves Comfort that What Is, will Always Be.
Now that I think about it-
I hate that Mother Fucker J. Krishnamurti.
But Gravity Always Wins
*Trolling Update- I allowed My Gracious (Compliant) Host to have the Last Word.
His Coup de grâce?
“And that is exactly what my concern is with Rabid Marxists: to stir up trouble to get rid of blogs like ours so they can say they accomplished something!.”
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have an appointment with my Psychic.
She’s finally tracked down Chairman Mao.
