November 9, 2016: The one in which I have the least politically correct rant on political incorrectness…
Sickness has been brewing in me the past week. It started with a few trifling sniffles. That became a sore throat. That became a vicious migraine. That became a fever. I should note I rarely ever get sick. If I do, it’s provoked by one of two things: anxiety or lactose intolerance.
Upon waking up, I became aware of the collective failure of my Southern neighbors and my stomach was engulfed by a wave of discomfort.
It’s the morning after America screwed itself over and my numbing cold is at it’s worst.** What was supposed to be a one-night stand turned into a four-year fuck and America (somewhat) willingly opened its legs to be grabbed by the pussy.
It started with a few trifling claims. That became a sore battle. That became a vicious nightmare. That became a burning reality. And it’s all our fault. If the power is to the people and the people is to the power, we have a civil war on our bloody hands. And like Axl said, what’s so civil bout war anyways?
The thing about people is that we make a lot of noise that attracts attention, regardless of whether we notice or want said attention. All this noise makes being aware difficult; too often we are passive in an active world. We get distracted by other people starting shit and involve ourselves. Start shit, light things on fire, get lost, but not just for the sake of it all. Expand your horizons. The thing about humanity is that we have limits and breaking points and levels of tolerance. Every year, instead of expanding our minds, we expand these levels of limitations and keep taking more and more shit. Remember, our tongue is our strongest weapon. It’s also a double-edged sword. How long will it take until we see we’re grasping the dagger between our ribs?
While everyone was so busy being “politically correct”, a concept that has recently changed its definition, we forgot what it is to be right. 20 Score, 11 years, 4 days ago, Guy Fawkes died for our sins. (YACKKKK AT THE IRONNNNY!!!!)
This is just more noise to distract us. More importantly to scare us. History only repeats itself, right? And every few years something happens to turn our necks to the left so we don’t see what’s happening on the right. This could all just be a bluff to push us to the precipice of fear. And some invisible hand (not the laissez-faire kind) will pull us back into the comfort of our couches to point out how once again we have been saved from who-knows-what and poison us with a genetically modified love potion.
**sidenote: maybe my body was foreshadowing all of this. Maybe the world is telling me something. What if my body is manifesting some sort of message? And if I, arbitrary human, am a representation of the body politic and its condition, then the disease is not just in my physical respiratory system, but also in the lungs of America. Even further, if today I’m at my worst, then tomorrow will be a better day (?). lol i’m kidding.
P.S. I hope this was rigged.
P.P.S. Please note: I do not have much knowledge or interest in politics – this a just another mere reaction in the wave of history.
