The news is awash with the story of some elected official who just got busted for sleeping with his extra marital honey in Argentina. I don't know his name, it's not even worth looking up.
When this non-story came up as news yesterday it irritated me. I didn't read it, because I couldn't care less. When it came up on Democracy Now today, I shut off the TV.
The "news" clip showed this silly man standing behind a podium, with a microphone, in front of the whole world, apologizing for having sex with somebody besides his wife.
That's when I reached over and shut it off.
That's not news. Why is it being sprayed all over people when it's not even news? Could there be a less newsworthy item in the country than this guy's personal problem? Who cares? I don't care. I don't know the guy. Why would I care?
What does this guy's personal sex life have to do with anyone besides this guy?
Does anyone think that an elected official getting some extracurricular nookie is going to have a negative effect on this country? Does anyone really believe that what this guy does with his Mr. Happy would have any effect on this country at all? You have to know these things are not related. There's no way this matters. AT ALL.
Oh I know what some folks are saying, they're saying that it does matter because it's a character issue. If he lies to his wife then he would lie to us, and we just can't tolerate that. It means he's a bad man.
I'm sorry for this, but I am too tired to be diplomatic right now. Here goes.
Anybody who claims to be worried about any of our dearly elected politicians character... their morality... their honesty ... is a big fat liar. You don't care about the character of the people you elect. You don't care when they lie to you. You don't give a rat's ass about their morality. What are you going on about?
If you actually cared about the character or morality or honesty of American politicians, pathetic weasel crud like that guy would never get into office. If this guy's personal sex antics get you so upset, then why doesn't the whole filthy, corrupt, lying, murdering game show bother you? Do you honestly believe that this guy cheating on his wife is the worst thing your dearly elected are up to? Are you really that naive?
If you cared about this character stuff, you might have blown a gasket over the filthy lies coming out of the mouths of every president that's been in office during your personal lifetime. You'd be livid over the millions of dead people over seas that never did anything to deserve to die at the hands of some bullshit Western coalition mass murder spree over some impossible war on terror that doesn't exist, never existed and never will exist. You should have been all kinds of offended by that. Because that actually matters. AND it pertains to you, unlike Mr. Whoopie and what he's doing in his spare time.
If it really bothered you when elected officials lie, you would be bothered out of your mind right now. You would be looking at these people and listening to them and knowing every word out of their mouths is a lie. You would know that like you know your own street address.
But you don't want to know that. You want to play "holier than thou" games and pretend it's shocking and unbelievable for a grown man to have extra marital sex instead of noticing how many of these respectable characters are getting their jollies on little kids. You would be demanding prison sentences for the protected child sex slave rackets being run all over this country and not just this country. You wouldn't be wasting your time on things that don't concern you, that aren't any of your business, and that don't fricken matter to anyone at all except whoever's personal business it is.
Don't turn your head you coward. That's reality. And that's nothing, NOTHING compared to who and what these people all are and what they do every single day they show up for "work". Why don't you get real and look at the truth? Every last one of them is screwing YOU right now. And they won't stop till they're done and there's nobody left to screw. Why don't you know that by now? What does it take to get you clued in? Oh that's right. Soap opera style dirty laundry.
You chicken shit.
My God, are people really that inane? Yes, they are. They really are. It's unbelievable.
This lot makes me want to hurl.
All the same, I don't really think there are that many Americans that give a crap about this guy and his affair.
I think it has a whole lot more to do with the disgusting scum bag whore morality of the new American mainstream "media" and what they themselves get titillated by. They are the ones who are the horses ass gossips, and the flesh obsessed meat vultures. They are the ones who waste everyone's time and energy hystericizing and nit picking over athletes taking dope while officials condone torture and military political zealots blow away one of their own, and their extreme better at that, just because he gets it and doesn't stand for lies and war crimes. Nobody cares who's poking who, or what Hollywood phonies are up to, or any other manner of completely irrelevant, idiotic, stupid stuff about people's personal lives that have nothing to do with any other human being in this country at all. The world is going up in flames, the country's morality itself has been shot in the head and left for dead, while the country is being gang banged and cleaned out by a global criminal syndicate that's murdering the future of 350 million Americans; and you give a shit about some guy having an affair?
You are vile and filthy whores. That's it. That's the highest compliment you deserve. Your own debauched, trivia obsessed management is the reason big media has tanked. You've got nothing worth having and next to nothing anyone needs. It's simple cause and effect. Because you're inane, dishonest, cowardly, shallow twits, that fail utterly at your supposed purpose, Informing The People, the effect is nobody likes you anymore. We want real information. Go figure.
End of rant.
All better now.
Just fyi, the aforementioned two new pieces will probably take another week or so to complete. I'm sure everyone's lives are as busy and as overpopulated with distractions and challenges as mine is. It's like that right now kind of more than usual. Nothing I can't handle, it just makes it impossible to spend time doing what I want to do. I've easily got half a dozen pieces in various stages of completion and will eventually be able to put them up when time and energy allows. I hope.
In any case, all my best to you. And by the way, thank you sincerely for being there and for all of your good will and support. I really do appreciate it.
