OK, it's official. They've been telling me I hate America since the mid 1960's and it's never been true, until now. I hate America but please realize that I hate only one of the two. I hate the America where people scream about Mrs. Clinton approving of ripping "babies" out of their mother's womb two days before birth. I hate the America where people howl about how "those damn liberal Democrats" have ruined everything, where Trumps "boy talk" is just boy talk. I hate that America for a thousand reasons and ten times more and if you belong there, I hate you too.
Sitting in the hospital waiting room this morning waiting for a blood test and it's always a chore, not because I'm afraid of needles but because it's largely an elderly crowd and in Florida elderly often means mean. There was no Fox news on the TV this time, but one woman in her 70s, speaking to an older male companion volunteered that it was "only boy talk." A day or two ago, before I had given up I might have replied. "are you talking about the boys in the juvenile home or the psych ward?" But I didn't. It wouldn't do any good.
"well there's nobody lower down on the moral scale than the Marines and they all talk like that" says he. "but God bless the US Marines." Sure, as long as they don't rape anyone or run for President, but what good does it do to argue people so far removed from decency, so devoid of intelligence and so damned stupid as to need me to explain it to them.
Someone on Facebook gets all kind of high fives for talking about "partial birth abortion" and Hillary Clinton. I didn't reply and for the reason, see above, but explaining to him that this was a term made up by Religio-Republican liars for Jesus, not doctors, would get nowhere with him or his crowd. Fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly and blowhards gotta blow hard.
Approximately 0.2% of abortions are the D&X type: Dilate and Extract, where instead of "ripping" the cervix is dilated. It's done not as birth control, but in cases when the foetus is dead, or has no brain or is brain dead and delivering it normally would kill it and its mother. Liars for Jesus are not approachable and particularly not with facts.
Should I go on? Why? It's hopeless. You can't fix stupid and fixing ignorant takes a willing patient. I've yet to meet one. Call it the US of idiocy, Call it Jesustan, call it what you like, it's here to stay while the other America withers away. It's too late. We could have done something, but once the brainless, the mentally unfit are born, it's too late because such people will take over and it will end badly. I hate that America and its sad, sick history of genocide and persecution and superstition and bigotry. I hate the camo commandos with their fake military weapons and pea brains, the government haters, the civilization haters, the law haters who want to live alone in the jungle like orange haired Orangutans, dreaming about rape and Donald Trump. Do I think the other half could have done better? Of course, but all the haters, baiters and masturbators with your Bibles and Trump signs can only lead us to war, famine pestilence and poverty.
