We're getting political and will be spanked.
But, as in most elections: it don't mean shit. Other than to say that the elected officials kind of forgot they were representing people and not a particular line that a party wanted to press. And the people were like, um hold on a hot second there buckos.
Getting any pro gun type legislation past this governor is a non starter from where I sit. I think it did make a powerful statement (as far as that goes in getting shit done
) to legislators in a state where two of the most heinous massacres (columbine and aurora) have occurred that the people don't feel like blaming the tool used. Well-intentioned people who think they know what's best for everyone very often should shut the fuck up. The term is pyrrhic victory.
It seems pretty ridiculous to me to blame some very obvious mental deficiencies (freaking megalomaniac in aurora, sandy hook kid with well publicized illness)on what the idjets used to stomp their feet and cry for attention. For fucks sakes, their professional counselors documented their problems and warning signs of violence. What. the. Fuck. eh?
We all recoil from the ability that these fuckers have to end innocent lives, terrorize, and then sit in court with a smile or just off themselves by cop or otherwise (which they could have just done quietly at home without being a bitch about it and ruining society). I truly don't get why the mental aspect of this is taking a back seat.
And since I'm laying it all out there, may as go for the time out
What bothers me is that I am for some social programs and I am for civil rights for everybody. Unfortunately the party pushing gun rights doesn't believe in either of those things (because they think their old ass voters don't) and is an embarrassment to me with their fuck tard opinions on gay rights for example. I fear moderate (like, you know, most people) middle of the road types like me who are pretty pissed on the gun thing are going to tolerate some hate just to get our constitutional rights protected. And I don't thing the 'liberal' (hate labeling) people realize that they are also potentially losing things that are way more important to them that have been accomplished lately.
Bottom line to me is that I'm saddened by every 'representative' I've seen in pretty much every aspect of their jobs. I don't feel represented. I vote for the one who appears least maniacal. I don't like the fact we have career politicians. Things that seem common sense to me appear to be foreign to the public at large and to the turkeys governing us. I can't tell if I'm watching the Kardashians or the nightly news. We let representatives show their dicks to a bunch of ladies they work with, fuck half of them, go to court over that, and then we still let them use a microphone, AND HAVE A JOB? And people listen to them. Children see this shit. Children are learning that this is normal.
So to sum up, Mods & everyone who read this and comes here specifically not to read this sort of thing, I apologize. I know the rules. I know there are plenty of other places on the internet to discuss these things including PMs. It's the anniversary of a notorious day and I spent it watching a bunch of people be horrible to each other. Every now and then the sickness of our species bothers me to the point of incredulity. But, the sun will come up tomorrow and I have a nice safe place at home with a nice girl to help me remember good things.
