Except I will because I have no choice because no one cares what I think. Someone in my friends group says the ‘chess instead of checkers’ phrase ad nauseam and I could point out that saying that doesn’t make you cool if you don’t actually know how to play, but no one will care because he makes a lot of money and could help them get a job and I can’t. Ditto the guys who wish violence on every prominent Republican, as though their policy views alone set them apart from the Maga trash storming the Capitol right now. Or the maga trash wearing their stupid red hats at the grocery store instead of a mask more than a year after covid started. My God this country is so broken. We are all fucked if there’s ever another world war or an invasion or anything that requires Americans to sacrifice for the greater good cuz millions of people won’t even put a fucking mask on or wash their hands like youve got a constitutional right to be a disgusting germ factory. Hillary was absolutely right with her ‘deplorables’ comment, but she was also right about going high when they go low, which is pretty much paraphrasing the Bible. But integrity? Morals? No one gives a shit. I don’t understand how even before 2016 one couldn’t look at Trump and his complete absence of character and know what a disaster it would be if he was ever given real power. But I’ve had to sit by and watch pretty much everyone I care about getting sucked into q anon and tucker Carlson and covid hoaxes and guns and ‘all lives matter’ bullshit because it has so many YouTube views or tv ratings or abortion non sequiturs or just because it’s how they were raised and they don’t have the fortitude to formulate their own beliefs. But what do I know? I don’t have a fancy job or a German luxury car or even a real girlfriend, why should anyone listen to me? I guess that’s why I write here because all this anger needs to go somewhere or I’ll explode. Rant over. Y’all can go back to pretending like you care about things until it personally affects you.
