1) People who say that if your vegan business doesn’t flaunt your veganism you’re “hiding” it. No, idiotvegan, it’s not that I’m “hiding it.” It’s simply that I am smarter than you, and have a better, and more successful, business plan.
2) THIS INSANE COUNTRY!
WHAT! IS! HAPPENING!! PEOPLE!
Driving home from work tonight, all the TVs along my street were tuned to the debate (why do so many people in this town lack/not know how to close curtains? I wonder this every night.). On Facebook everyone was talking about the debate. Suddenly something hit me:
PEOPLE ACTUALLY THINK THIS ELECTION MATTERS.
It knocked me sideways.
There are real differences between these two corporatist dudely candidates, and I’m the first to admit this. Let us run them down, quick-like.
- One won’t take away your right to own your own body quite as muchly
- One prob (BUT DEF NOT DEF) won’t bomb and murder quite as many people in other countries quite so quickly or as muchly
- One is like a teeeensely bit less pwned by our corporatist overlords.
- One won’t take away your kid’s recess quite so quickly (he’ll wait until things get just a bit worse).
- There’s some tax stuff too, and stuff with the deficit (I am a girl, and know not of these matters).
- One says prettier things, whilst painfully fucking us over a teeensey bit more gently, with perhaps a bit more, ah, lubrication, that of tasty words and beautiful wifely arms.
Also, one doesn’t instantly and deeply want to make you want to blow your brains out in horror for what a human being can be.
That is, indeed, something.
Also, if you, as I do, believe white assfuck douche fratboys have fucked this fair country over for years and years and we should take power from them as deeply as possible as quickly as possible in order to let those of other pigmentations and genital types fuck us over for a bit, one of these candidates is of other pigmentations, which matters, still, to me.
BUT NOT ENOUGH TO VOTE FOR HIM OR ANYTHING!
I’M NOT AN IDIOT.
And I don’t live in a swing state, so I don’t have to swallow any lesser of two evils pills, THANK JESUS.
But here’s my point: does anyone care about revolution any more? Does anyone still believe that, I can’t even BELIEVE I’m about to say such a simplistic and stupid phrase, but here we go: ummmmmmm…. does anyone still believe (and teach their kids) that it’s the system that’s broken?
Like, remember that whole thing?
Actually though, I don’t believe it’s the system that’s broken.
I mean, I do, but only because the people running the system are just awful. The system *could* work, we just won’t let it! I’ll get to that in a minute.
Ugh. Maybe people on the left still believe that there are fundamental issues behind the, you know, operation of the machine and all that, that, if remedied, could change a whole lot more than a change in administration from blue to red and back again forever and ever amen could change things but my guess is they’re so damn beaten down by everyday life and how deeply the current system is fucking them that it’s hard to care any more. So they vote for the lesser of two awful people who CAN NOT have our interests at heart, BECAUSE OF HOW IT WORKS, and they go on about their day trying to scrape by and trying to sleep at night.
I can’t blame that, can I?
FUCK YES I CAN.
UGH. Never in our history have the working classes and middle classes been so stupid, so complacent, so happily lied to. Never in our history have we had more information so close at hand.
WE ARE THE ONES FUCKING OURSELVES OVER, AND I BLAME US.
And by “us” I mean, and let me be very precise about this: I blame my friends who are voting for Obama.
I will take nothing less than this: immediate cessation of participation in this idiotic system. Immediate and peaceful changing of the guard, by voting in (yes! I believe things can be accomplished this way!) actual people who actually will do things to BENEFIT US. It could happen! THIS WHOLE ENTIRE P.O.S. COUNTRY COULD CHANGE OVERNIGHT! I’m not in favor of coming to your house with guns and forcing you out of your home and into some hippie yurt where we’ll all make yogurt or something (you think hippies don’t have guns?). I’m just in favor of VOTING FOR ACTUAL HUMAN BEINGS. And thus changing the entire course of this whole country, radically and instantly, through legislation and the already agreed-upon channels of democracy that aren’t too bad, they’re just so badly misused. In short:
THROW THE BUMS OUT!
But we won’t, because we are idiots.
Here’s my take on it:
You vote for Romney, you’re so stupid I won’t deign to even discuss it.
You vote for Obama and think you’re actually doing something decent for this country,
I BLAME YOU FOR EVERYTHING.
