I mean really, what's the point? We are about to lose Social Security, any government involvement in medical care, along with the insurance of 20 million people, the minimum wage, environmental protection, equality for all Americans, even in theory, the rest of the middle class, free speech and even the notion that there is a difference between true and false. And what difference did the four thousand posts I have written make? What difference did the tens of thousands of people like me make? Nothing. No difference at all. The Koch Brothers and their rich psycho killer friends have won.
Every time I sit down to try to write a meaningful post, I just give up after a couple of paragraphs, because, why waste my time? Let the whole damned United States go down the drain that it has been circling for the last few decades. Let the bad guys win. Because, what can we do about it?
Face it; we have been lying to ourselves when we told ourselves that there were enough people in this God-forsaken, hate and greed filled country who cared about right and wrong, true and false, to stop the juggernaut which is now about to submerge us all in a miserable existence not one scrap better than the worst third world countries. The rich of this country have determined that they want to live as the overlords of a nation in which everyone else is a starving peon, and the white, ignorant dumb fucks have decided that hating on black people and Muslims and Hispanics and Jews really offers them a more pleasant life than a decent job and hope for the future. So they went along with it, and now we will find out how far it is possible for an industrial, first world country to devolve before it degenerates into an anarchic, violent failed state. Any bets? Twenty years? Ten? Two? Well, we will see, because it's coming, ready or not.
