Words With Adversaries

Yesterday, a thought: I’m a college-educated, middle-class white American male with a loving family—how sad can my universe be? Yes, I have an illness, but it’s not who I am. It’s time to get my head out of my ass—even if it’s just a slow, calculated maneuver. Listing people who piss me off is a good start:

  1. Trump Supporters. Go ahead and vote for the Donald. He’ll make America great again—for rich white assholes looking to make billions on the backs of the weak and exploited.
  2. Frat Boy Alpha Males. We get it—you’ve got a big dick. Stop posturing—you’re just as small in the grand scheme of things as everyone else you put down.
  3. Militant Pro-Lifers. Murdering innocent people sounds more like you’re anti-life.
  4. Obama Haters. We get it—you don’t like black people. Or Mexicans. Or adults who can read beyond a fourth-grade level.
  5. The National Rifle Association. Protecting the rights of domestic terrorists across the USA.
  6. Religious Fanatics. No, you don’t know God’s will. Stop enumerating my sins while discounting your own.
  7. Ted Cruz. We get it—you don’t like black people. Or Mexicans. Or adults who can read beyond a fourth-grade level.
  8. People Who Love Their Smartphones More Than Human Beings.

    This just about sums up the ugly world we live in. What happened to the “good ole days”? Also, not sure if these are in “ranking” order, but if they are I would swap #8 for #2 and move up #5. Anyway you look at it they are all equal on the “ridiculous” scale. My opinion of course! Surprisingly, I was out with 8 women coworkers/friends and no one was immersed in their smart phones. Everyone was engaged in conversation and laughs.

      Yeah, they’re not ranked in any way. Should have mentioned that in post. Glad you got to spend quality time with friends. Our phones can wait. Sometimes!
