I was back at work today and had less time to think about how screwed up our society is so yeah, it’s good to be distracted!
What all is screwed up?
How about people protesting hospitals about vaccines, which makes no sense when the hospital is the place that will try to save your life if you get COVID and are not vaccinated?
How about another stupid rally in Washington D.C. this Saturday to celebrate the stupid rally which led to an act of domestic terrorism back in January? How does Trump get away with everything he gets away with? Oh, yeah – he told us he would back in 2016 when he said this on the campaign trail in Iowa:
“I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters, OK?” Trump remarked at a campaign stop at Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa. “It’s, like, incredible.”https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/01/23/464129029/donald-trump-i-could-shoot-somebody-and-i-wouldnt-lose-any-voters
Ah. Hmm. Yeah.
And the craziness continues to build because A) more people are joining the crazies and B) the crazies are getting louder and seemingly more powerful.
If we shut all of this out by watching the correct newscasts and muting out a lot of people on social media, we can get a false sense that everything is fine and it’s quite dangerous to be looking the other way.
Why? Here’s one example of why we need to pay attention –
What censorship? Is that a feature I can turn on? Sadly, every one of your insane messages makes it through just fine. I just follow along for a little warning in case you somehow trigger WWIII or try to outlaw common sense. https://t.co/0J7rbsmqGS— The Anger Core (@theangercore) September 13, 2021
