ACHING TO MAKE PEOPLE DESPISE ME MORE, I GUESS...for speaking my mind
and the truth (as only I see it, I'm sure; me a demon among angels, as
usual)––always a bad thing, it seems. :) Hmmmm, yes...
a shame about California, isn't it? :( But oh soooo true. I know, I
lived there from 1995 to 2016––so I doubt anyone will be able to
convince me otherwise. What saddens me most is that some great people I
know are among the fray. But to each his/her own, for I know they would
never leave. As the TALKING HEAD's David Byrne sings: "Home, is where I
want to be, But I guess I'm already there." And I am home now too. Thank
the powers that be for that. No state income tax, low gas prices, easy
to deal with the DMV (unlike CA), truly a far more relaxed feeling here
in TX; mostly peaceful and quiet and people get along––except for the
typical individual killings that are plaguing the nation over all.
people have learned that there is no debating with others and reasoning
with logic––because very few are logical nowadays (but were they
ever?). The only way you change someone's mind is to kill them. Welcome
to the cancer of the world growing in leaps and bounds. And I really
don't think it will ever stop––gun control won't fix it––it's just too
easy to kill someone, if you simply, wholeheartedly want to (a kitchen
knife or a hammer will always suffice). And all of this is generally the
result of a planet with too many people all wanting too much and
wanting it yesterday all the time. This is the legacy of the human
race, which, in all truth, has been unfolding endlessly since the
beginning of the species.
however, there is a slight, yet alarming, difference: the deafening
cries of the few––special interests and the media––far outweigh the
needs of the many, who must hold their tongue. At least until they
pop...explode. And this "popping" or "exploding" will continue
indefinitely, because people are fed up. The usually calm and sensible
crowd are all fed up with a world going terribly out of focus––forced
out of focus by the "victims", the special interests, and the media.
Thus, most people are now "mass" victims of the minority of "victims".
Reminds me of lyrics I wrote for an ≈9x song 30 years ago, called "Get
Me Off This Planet":
"Looky, there's a pimple on the planet
"Looky, the pimple is a man
"Looky, the man is going to explode
"With everything I cannot stand --"
sure many will disagree with what I'm saying. But they are the squeaky
wheel singular "victims"...and worst of all, the "pedantic": the
overripe, self-righteous, devil-in-the-details, know-all geeks who
believe their way is the only way––because they're "smart", they are the
"media". They are the most dangerous ones forcing the world out of
focus, because they go out of their way to control even the singular
"victims". And possibly irreparably so. A world war is on the brink.
But this world war will be fought on every continent and in every
person's yard. The days of the caveman approach steadily. Seems the
troglodyte is unconquerable.
the more that things change, the more they stay the same. I hope time
will prove me wrong about a new World War, but only time can do that.
We are all sitting on the beach of Uhgggg and the high tide of calamity
is rolling in. Have a nice day Humans, on this ever bloody planet
