A Timely Observation, or Ultimate Proof of Stupidity Through the Voting Booth and Even After

July 30, 2017 at 9:27 pm Leave a comment

There is an immediate, immortal and inescapable result (or conclusion) about the last presidential election and who won.

 

First of all, like it or not, half of the nation is complete idiots.  The other half is trying as hard as they can to emulate that ‘first’ half.   I found neither candidate actually credible but I voted for one.

 

When the politicians are talking about their constituents it seems I’m never one of them.  That’s also true of many other people I know…well, mostly have known.  It seems likely that the politicians in their junior or senior year of college or whatever it is that they attend begins to construct their ‘story’–basically, their own mental imagery of the typical voter (perhaps if he’s exceptionally inventive he might consider the youths growing to be voters) and thus what needs to be done to and for her/him.  Abortion and birth prevention encourage loose living and so do prophylactics for that matter…but unwed mothers should of course receive no help at all from the state…

 

Yes, I actually did read that somewhere.  The man was very self-righteous.  I was an illegitimate child.  Still am for that matter although records were carefully edited subsequent to my adoption by my mother’s sister.  Not supposed to be here, which was more or less the reaction of my (bio) father’s children.  At best an embarrassment and more likely something both horrible and horribly contagious, a veritable cauldron of seething juices whose merest touch would damn one forever.  Yep, that’s me.

 

The point here is twofold.  We have adopted various beliefs in lieu of formalized religions.  I have encountered those who are so absolutely enthralled as to interpret each event as apocalypse or salvation.  They derive their own meaning(s) from the misreported shenanigans of “their” politicians; in many respects the political arena is a bit less meaningful than analysis of the “meaning” of a football game.  I doubt many would disagree with me when I say that “It may be true in sports but it certainly isn’t in politics, ‘It ain’t whether you win or lose, son, it’s how you play the game.’  In politics winning is all that matters, even if you have to allow an opponent to stick on a rider for a multi-million dollar bridge that goes from nowhere to nowhere.”  ****Yes, that happened.****  The ‘religion’ that is outlined here then bears a distinct resemblance to that which was devoted to Ba’al.  For that matter in many respects our society could be aptly characterized as Babylon, with the Internet the Tower.  [Surely the nearly exact analogy has occurred to many, not just me.]

 

Secondly, we have absolutely demonstrated our absolute lack of actual social behavior.  We’re getting to where we can’t stand each other.  The road rage at a particular incident isn’t singular, it’s part of an ongoing, agonizing, repetitive session of our lives that we hate more every day, sort of like a dentist’s appointment that will last for years.  We push and shove in the market.  We cut the other driver off and then flip her off because we have the bigger truck or car or it’s faster or it’s more expensive or…we just must be entitled, right?  And, being ugly  Americans, we put a nice hairy set of  balls on the trailer hitch of our Suburban that damned well better not get muddy since it cost over $50,000! [Yeah, it’s an old one.]  No, I do not have anything of the sort on my trailer hitch, thank you.  Lol.  How many of us could deny that was Trump’s attraction?  He was going to be the bull in the china closet and get things done.

 

He has that.  It’s Obama’s fault…
