Ever have one of those weeks that makes you want to just rant?
Warning: The content of this post may be offensive to some….so if you get offended by language please pass this one by……..
A shitty start to 2022…..my car blew up and had to spend money on anew one…..my family situation is getting worse too much more from this person and the legal system will be used…..I am sick of my generosity being mistaken for stupidity.
Then there is my country…..
A new year and a new week and with all the stupidity flowing through our society I fell a rant is due.
For about six months I have noticed that this country has fallen into a sense of complacence….in other words few seem to give a screaming shit on what is happening and has happened to this country.
Congress is the same….Progressives demand and demand….corporate Dems finds ways to crap on any progress….the GOP is batcrap crazy….Covid is running rough-shod over the globe….and everyone seems to be preparing for war with someone….and Reality TV is at at an all-time high.
Instead of being concerned for this society they, the population, spends time worrying about the dress some skinny celeb wore to some silly gala or the newest flavored drink like Coca-Cola with coffee (yes, you read that right)….they bitch about the climate and yet spend all their cash on food in some sort of goddamn plastic because they are too goddam busy playing some moronic video game to learn to cook their own damn food. Hell they are so damn lazy that they pay overpriced food from these goddamn waste of money food plans.
I am fucking sick of the whining with no one with enough balls to step forward to do something.
Yes I am an old fart and yes I was a radical many years ago (well I still am) and the years have caught with me the only action I can take is through my boring writings….at least I fucking try….I wish I could say that about the younger generation.
Do not get me wrong….there are some great people, young people, trying to make a difference….sadly for every one of these there are fucking thousands that sit and do absolutely nothing….with exception of bitching….and staring at some screen of some sorts.
These do-nothing assholes remind me of our Congress….lots of talk and bitching but when it comes time to step up they are they are nowhere fucking where to be found.
Again I wish I could see some tsunami of change coming but if I did I would be a goddamn liar…I will not lie to expand my on-line popularity and for that ‘failing’ I am about as goddamn popular as a turd in the punch bowl.
I could just do what so many have done just pack up my ass and move on…..I could but that is not my fucking style.
I would just like to see some interest from the American people for the direction of this country but instead I get word that people are more worried about the smell of their bathroom after a shit than they are worried about the rancid putrid smell that come from our Congress.
All this makes me think of a chorus from John Lennon’s Working Class Hero….
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you’re so clever and classless and free
But you’re still fucking peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be
It is a new year and I just had to unload because just could not get up the energy to write anymore….a cleansing of my meager mind….my grandfather use to say when ‘you teach pigs to sing you waste your time and piss of the pig’….these days you cannot motivate the pigs to do anything but whine.
I weep for our society and future generations.
I leave you with thoughts from Lewis Black…..
“lego ergo scribo”

Don’t hold back, old buddy.. let it out. 🙂
Look, if you’re anything like me you can heap onto all that misery you’ve outlined here the fact that we are getting older by the minute, this is the first time because we’ve never been this old before and we aren’t sure how to handle it.. and we have no idea our place in the world. Irrelevance is a bitch to be sure. One of the most disconcerting things for me, having been a movie and TV buff most my life, is seeing all my fave actors/actresses getting old with me.. some looking pretty bad as they age… some having died off younger than me.
As I write this it’s 4am here because these days I can’t seem to get past 4-5 hours sleep a night. What the hell is that all about?
I live in California’s high desert so I don’t have to go far to get surrounded by a measure of nature’s beauty among the Joshua Trees and the surrounding mountain views.. and some relatively clean air. Maybe you need to get away from that Gulfport/Biloxi/Pascagoula area for a while and head out to some nature where there’s few people.
One of the things I want to do this year is go back and visit D.C. one last time. Last time for me was with the family back in 1992. Maybe head over the the Capitol and take 5 minutes to stand watch to make sure those cocksuckers don’t try doing anything again on my 5 minute watch. If I’m lucky I’ll die in the unlikely event should anything happen. What more can an old fart wish for than to die for a purpose greater than self. Better than sitting home and watching fentanyl and mental health aberrations kill off the young… and the same old politics kill off the world.
On the other hand…………… I can wallow in my all alone in my pity party till the end…. or… (we each can fill in the blank here.)
I would love to get away but I do not trust anyone alone with my house…..getting old sucks and the old saying about family and fish is damn true…..I would be afraid of DC these days….the stupid bug is running rampant…..have a good day….be well…..chuq
Love Lewis Black for the humor. Sometimes you have to find the humor. No need to be sorry about your rant.
THanx….and Black has a way to saying what I am thinking……be well chuq
A rant I could easily have ranted myself, save for the new car, and the fact you live in America, not England.
Always good to get it out of your mind, and on the page.
Best wishes, Pete.
Pete I felt so much better when it was posted…..I can understand why so people ‘go postal’…….LOL chuq
My dearest friend … I may be the female version of your ‘old fart’ thing! I wasn’t really into politics but, boy, 2015-2016 have woken me up!! So much so that I have to turn it off once in a while! It’s too much and my current concern is that NO ONE seems to be doing anything about it.
I often wonder, am I, the ‘newbie’, the only one that sees this? Then I find a post like this one … and it ‘validates’ what I see!
The best come back I have is that I’ve come to realize that I am the age I am – and I find myself on the on the ‘coming down’ side of the mountain, my life … that gives me a miniscule sense of contentment … then the old rebel in me says “you can’t do that”!! But what the hell can a soon to be 72y/o, retired woman do at this stage of the game?
My personal answer … sit back and watch, try to stay informed and hide away when it gets to me too much – just like now!!
Your rant was very well received!! That reference to Lennon’s song was amazing!! Tight hugs ….
I have been warning people for 40 years….no one cared and look at us now…..I cannot stop it is too important…..Thanx for the kind words….hugz back be well chuq
