Sigh. After reading about federally-funded “pregnancy centers” lying to women about abortion risks and a deranged GOP senator comparing stem cell research to murdering children, I’m having a moment of…powerlessness. You know, one of those nasty moments where there doesn’t seem to be any point in being outraged, speaking out, voting, or giving a shit about any of this stuff, because evil has won. One of those moments when it seems that this country is damaged beyond all repair, hopelessly lost to politically powerful religious pigfuckers and Big Bizness cocksuckers who have turned us into a nation of glassy-eyed consumer slugs.
Again and again I see these evil fucks winning elections (legally or otherwise) and creating more laws to restrict and control and invade and eavesdrop. (Yes, Democrats can be just as dangerous.) We seem to be circling the drain faster and faster and these fucking nutballs are paddling in the wrong direction as hard as they can. Of course, many Americans are actually voting for this stuff, putting these people into power. Can’t they see where it’s all headed? Are they really that dumb? It’s madness, and I sometimes feel like all we can do is treat it as entertainment, watching the whole sick thing unfold.
There, I feel a little better now. 🙂 Hmmm, maybe I’m just having a bad day?
(And for any snickering anonymous commenters who are going to suggest that I move to another country, let’s just say that while it’s not on my agenda, the idea isn’t as ridiculous to me as it used to be.)
