Happy Mother’s Day for the mothers out there.
Sorry to say I was awoken 0100 and it continued all night by cats fighting…it went on for hours….so I am not in the best mood to start my day.
First let me say that I am just thinking out loud.
I am tired! And I am old!
The news seems to be on an endless loop or Covid, the Trial of the century, an the selling of war…..and some dude in Russia. When we should be laser focused on the attempts to suppress voters in all forms……the MSM should spend as much time on the suppression as they spend on the jabs…and then there is the analysis of the Chauvin trial…..glad he got what he deserved the verdict will change little….there are about 18,000 police departments and all play their different game….there is NO standardization anywhere…..talk will not change the culture.
Things are slow here on IST…..seems no one gives a sh*t about the world around them….which is why we find ourselves knee deep in manure.
The lack of knowledge/interest in Civics is killing this country…few seem to actually care about the nation and its direction….lots of bitching and moaning but that is as far as it goes….words.
It seems that few care.
I blame the media for they pick what they want as news and feed the viewer mundane, mind numbing manure….nothing that would help solve the culture of ignorance.
Since things are so slow I decided to slow myself down as well.
First my recent poetry posts prove that no one cares about those thoughts from me….they failed before and it failed once again….so that shall be the last attempt I will make to try and find something other than the crappy news.
I have come to the point where it is difficult to write observations of this country.
All the silliness of the culture war….the abortion, bathrooms, party stupidity, the Senate, the shootings, the idiocy of insurrection, guns and the lot.
While Americans are going hungry and homeless and health issues, etc…..instead of caring about our fellow Americans people we are laser focused of voter suppression and division.
Instead of caring about the direction of this country……we are laser focused on pimple popping doctors and fashion tips and photos and those damn food blogs…..and you wonder why this country is going to a manure pile….this should be your first clue.
Mind numbing and dumbing down the populace.
I wish I could say ‘this too will pass’….but I am not so sure that is accurate in my lifetime.
Party politics have become the norm and while that stupidity plays out Americans are losing their homes, their children are hungry and dying from health issues….when did this country become so unfeeling?
For me it started with the election of Ronnie in 1980 and it has progressively gotten worse and that brings us to today…..an unfeeling lump of manure.
I wrote and lectured through the 70s, 80s and into the early 90s….and there were deaf ears all around….so I decided in 1994 to give up trying to educate and inform the people of this country….I became disgusted and it was all too depressing.
I stepped back from all this political nonsense…that is until 2006 while recovering from a badly broken leg thanx in part of Hurricane Katrina and while rehab I decided to try once again to help people grasp the country and its direction and once again I get more response from my canine companion MoMo….at least she shows some form of interest…..while the country at large could care f*cking less.
NO I am not giving up the work….just that the American people need to wake up and smell the manure all around them.
There are times that I feel as useful as an ashtray on a motor bike.
But sadly Americans do not give a sh*t.
They had prefer the mind numbing BS of bathroom usage and trying to push an agenda that means nothing to move this country forward….and the American people suck up the manure with glee.
I wish I could be more optimistic….but the trend does not lead me in that direction.
I will continue my efforts but it gets harder and harder by the day…..as old age takes control I feel that one day I will just throw my hands up and yell”F*ck it!” Why bother?
My grandfather use to say….”when you teach pigs to sing two things will happen…..you waste your time and piss off the pig”.
This is not about stats…..more about public apathy…..I always knew that I was not writing for everyone so I never expected 50 readers a day….so far I am not disappointed.
Since I do not write about rainbows and unicorns or post an endless array of food photos or write fiction….I have decided that there are books to read, time with my better half, my best friend MoMo and a garden that needs attention I will limit my posts until such time as some modicum of interest returns.
It’s All Too Damn Depressing!
After years of trying to moderate my political thinking all this apathy has made me return to the Hard Left thinking that I held in my youth.
To all those that take the time to visit IST…I cannot thank you enough….please know that you are appreciated and you have helped me through retirement and old age….and of course I will still visit the sites of friends…I am just stepping back nor leaving.
I am sorry if I offended anyone that is not my intention…..I am very happy for anyone that is successful and I wish you continued success.
Frustrated and just thinking out loud.
Be Well…..Be Safe…..Smile
