Troubles


In the city that care forgot.

I

started thinking about our world. Normally, I’d like to think I’m positive in general, but not right these days. Our world is a terrible place.

There is the elephant in the room, CoVid19 which became political when it was scientific. Even though the numbers are rising at the rate of five times faster than they were last year at this time, way too many people are saying it’s just a cold. Yeah, a cold that killed one million Americans. A cold that offers lasting symptoms.

There is terrible violence throughout our country. 19 children were killed in Uvalde, Texas by a sick kid with AR15s and body armor. Since then, there have been mass killings recorded almost everyday. The Republican bought off Party wants to do nothing, citing The Second Amendment, which is pure bullshit. They seem to want to dredge up everything but the real issue. Guns. Nobody needs a semi-automatic weapon for anything. The ridiculous senator from Louisiana said that farmers needed them to shoot feral pigs. Give me a break. Do I look as stupid as he is?

Then, there is normal street violence. Normal? Well, in New Orleans it’s normal. The media reports the weekend gun violence violence like they used to during The Vietnam War. It happens in lots of other cities too. But, we lead the per capita rates. One report said that a bullet was floating through the air when it went through a wall and hit a bartender in his own business. Yeah, bullets just float around.

Lately bad guys have been coming from other states to dance on the hoods of police cars.

Of course, let’s not forget the war in Ukraine. I’m Ukrainian. How do you think I feel about that? Russians are killing my people for no reason. Well, one reason. Putin. He keeps threatening to raise the stakes because the world is against him. Uh uh.

If we don’t start really taking action it seems that the country is forgetting how we felt on January 6, 2020 when traitors attacked our capitol attempting to overturn a legally bound presidential election at the urging of the incompetent treasonous fat weasel Donald Trump. The best I can ever say about him is that he is a loser.

And so it goes.

We have to start taking action or we are going to lose the world we want to live in.

I’m starting to become extreme.

No CoVid vaccinations? You are banned from everywhere. Ban all automatic assault weapons. If you are caught with one it’s an automatic five year prison sentence. No trial needed. Street killings, no trial. Just prison. Keep threatening me and my people in Ukraine, bomb the hell out of Moscow. Convict the traitors who attacked my country. Organizers face a firing squad. Anybody else gets a five year prison term. Trump? Two choices, Treason is punishable by firing squad or into solitary confinement for the rest of his life.

Sound radically authoritarian?

Deliciously so.
