Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – no matter if I have said it! – except it agree with your own reason and your own common sense.” – Siddhartha Gautama, a.k.a. the Buddha

the palpable angst

The last week has been strange, at least in what I am observing.   IMO, I am finally starting to see the disconnect from the EneMedia taking place.   I have caught some small pieces in passing from the EneMedia while going about actually living a life instead the usual ‘react to the next horror’,,,    and it seems like there are more and more people realizing that they need to do the same.   Gas prices are high, we know who the culprits are on that, and we know that the only way to remove them is going to require bloodshed.   Alternative move?   IGNORE THE FUCKERS,,,,    Seems like most everyone I met over the last 96 hours of runnin’playin’floatin’ and enjoying being alive has that attitude.    

Laugh in their faces, ignore the hell out of them, stop showing up for the beating, and if you have to, toss the keys in the mailbox and WALK AWAY.

I can’t do that last, since I have anchored myself to my Da for the remainder of his days.   My choice, and with reason.   If he were to want a move, I would jump through hoops to make the move as seamless as possible, but he chooses to remain where he is.   That limits the places I can earn those ducats that make getting along a little smoother.   As discussed over weekend at B’s; when the fuel costs go through the ceiling, a commute kills the benefits.   I could make ‘a bit’ more further out, but would take home a ton less, only actual benefit would be ‘steady hours’ and with the world doing what it is, Not sure I could count on that either.   Hard to justify paying a crew 40 hr/week when you can only get 15 hours worth of material in.   At some point, you can bite the bullet so hard it blows your head off, and I think this country is getting very close to that point.   The anger is palpable, and where two years ago, it was exhibited in backlash at other people nearby, this year it seems like the turbulence just below the surface of a volcano. 

Will it blow?   or will we slide right on through with Guffaws and Great Displays of Apathy.   The Ultimate answer TO kings: A belly Laugh.  They hate that.

SO,,,,,   Laugh at the fuckers even when your wallet is aching.   Let them know that they mean nothing to our worlds.   Maybe then they will react TO us, instead of trying to make us react to THEM.   Call me a racist?  A giggle and a Thank You are in order.  Call me homophobic?  ‘I like vaginas/penis’ ‘ (depending on your ACTUAL sex,,,)  etc etc.   Fuck the ‘Tards that think they know how the world ‘should’ work.    Let them move to the ME and see what happens when you start spewing that shit…

More later, early take off at the J.O.B. today, outta town client.

  1. Yeah, “they” really don’t like being ridiculed… Just last week, dealing with a city bureaucrat, she was spewing some nonsense edict that she claims was “required”. I asked why? She stared at me, mouth agape at the audacity of my daring to question her, then said it was part of the city code. Well, says I, I’ve read the code. Twice. And it DOESN’T say what you’re saying anywhere. And even if it did, this is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard, it makes NO sense. The mouth agape stare turned into a pursed lip glare, and silence for a couple beats… “I’ll have to consult with my supervisor and get back to you.” Thus far, nothing but crickets from the city. When you stand up to these imbeciles and ask them WHY? it short circuits their tiny little brains. I enjoyed it so much, I wish I could turn it into a full time job!
