Rantomatic #1: Today Jim Goad Types for Me!

In the long run, thinking about politics is a deflection from living life.

No matter what I write or how I vote, the debt is higher, there’s no wall, immigration is unchecked, I have no say in how the government spends even a dollar of the money it bleeds from me, nearly all journalists are dishonest, most people are deeply and incurably stupid, Republicans and Democrats are two arms on the same Frankenstein, the USA is culturally fractured beyond repair, the press still uses the euphemism “teens” for “black rioters,” women still make false rape claims while denying the very existence of false rape claims, white people are being systematically dehumanized by the same propagandists who scoff at the very notion that white people are being systematically dehumanized, trannies remain “the gender they were assigned at birth” no matter if they spend a million dollars to mutilate themselves, the “oppressed” would be just as rotten as the “oppressors” if only given the chance, the only truly pervasive racial hatred in public discourse these days is aimed toward white people, Americans probably haven’t fought a necessary war since 1776, the government is the biggest gang by definition, the left is constantly panicking about race and gender while the right is constantly panicking about degeneracy, feminism has been bad for both women and men, “justice” is merely a dishonest word for revenge, people who make public displays of moralism are the worst people in the world, slavery has been practiced by every race throughout history no matter what they tell you in school, white people are by far the least “racist” group in modern America, the difference between modern immigrants and immigrants of yore is that the latter sought to join the culture rather than destroy it, there is no way to objectively quantify what’ “fair” and what isn’t, you can’t have multiculturalism without cultural appropriation, human beings are innately inhumane, nearly everyone is brainwashed yet is either too stupid to realize it or too arrogant to admit it, IQ differences are real, some countries are shitholes and some aren’t, “hate” doesn’t explain anything, people are amply capable of empty moral outrage but utterly incapable of thinking, women are every bit as mendacious and vicious as men if not far more so and will attempt to destroy you if you merely point it out, no men are created equal, most people lie to themselves and others about things both great and small, things will get far worse before they ever have the faintest hope of getting better, everyone on social media suffers from Dunning-Kruger effect, and if I hear anyone else judge whether I’m not an asshole based strictly on my political opinions rather than my behavior toward them, I’ll give them a wedgie that will put them in the hospital.  Jim Goad — A Week Without Politics

    Indeed! I thought it was just me, but I guess we’re outnumbered.

    The best tools we have is our vote and our voice. Don’t give up or give in. If this isn’t solved democratically it will be solved with guns. If that comes to pass the future of America and Americans is dismal. It is rare that a revolution or civil war ends with an intact democracy. It is likely that our foreign enemies would enter the fray and destroy us. We cannot turn our backs on the few good politicians but we must get them help by replacing the bad ones. The Democrats are planning on stealing the presidential election and they will unless Trump can get 5 million or more votes than whichever nutcase they nominate to run against him.

    And yet, despite all the failures, kindness, courage, and common sense survive. And in that viral video of that baby trying to sing-a-long the Carpenter song with its Gramma, is our transcending of the trivial.

    Voltaire once wrote: “To find out who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”

    You may not be interested in politics, but those who are political are hell-bent on ruling you.

    That’s one glorious run-on-sentence.

    Great menstrual rant–that what happens when you miss a few periods.

    Regarding david ‘s “Israel is still America’s master lost me there”; That was, apparently, edited out when I read Gerald’s posting. None the less it’s a grand rant & I went over to Taki’s to read it all the way through, one doesn’t have to buy the whole cloth.

    I’ve seen a lot of similar posts in this vein. Francis Poretto talked about looking at your life and work, and gauging whether it is taking you where you want to be. A post over at WRSA reminds that being happy is the best revenge. John Prine’s song is good advice on how.

    FIFY.

    Everyone have a great week!
    Wish me luck, I’m being dragged off by my girlfriend to visit friends of hers in NY state. I’ll be under the suzerainty of the Mad Fool, His Honor Governor Cumo (perfectly cast and played on Blue Bloods, btw).
    There will be no politics because I’ve been forbidden by She Who Must Be Obeyed!

    Gee, all that…….and I want my boss to pay me twice as much for doing nothing, too!

    One giant sentence-paragraph full of crap; the time for that kind of EMO-wishing (thought-free content) went by almost 200 years ago. You can no longer pull up stakes and move to “wilderness!” If you agree with a word of that drivel, it’s merely evidence that you’re down to a half-dozen working brain synapses.

    And as was pointed out: You may not be interested in politics, but politics sure as heck, is interested in You!
