something to honk about
I’m feeling pretty frickin’ irritated with everyone on fUbook (facebook) right now. Ever since the election, people be like “ahhhh!!!” Chickens with their heads cut off. The sky is falling. All because Donald Trump was elected President. And the DNC messed with the primaries and cock-blocked Bernie Sanders and forced the public to date Hillary Clinton. And Russia and Putin just may have thrown some weight in Trumps favor.
You’d think by the way people are reacting to this turn of events that we all lived in Utopia of Equality and Splendor up until this moment. And then one day they all woke up in the Reality Land of Disinformation and Squalor.
Really people? Donald Trump is the epitome of everything the United States stands for. He is the Great White Hype. Condescending, ignorant, and wildly successful if you define success=money. Which, last I checked, is exactly the way America, it’s media, and it’s fawning public define success. And now the people that stood by watching this culture develop, the same people that acquiesced and got along to go along, are going to now act shocked and horrified?
Man, I coulda told ya. Why didn’t you just ask?
I never wanted anything to do with all that popular mainstream American dream. Before I even became an adult, I knew it was a sham. I never bought in. It seemed pretty obvious to me.
Those of us who resisted have always been a tiny minority. We have been shamed for not fitting in. We have been shamed for our poverty, for our lack of materialistic ideals.
We are perhaps a growing tiny minority. Still, most people have wool over their eyes. They think we can maintain the ideals of the American Dream and just add more equality for races and genders. But it won’t work. It’s counterfeit to the core. The power elite have sold them an image, smoke and mirrors. It’s not real. It never existed. It never will. It’s just a tool to take the resources of the populace and turn it into wealth for a very few. It has always been that way.
That’s why I can’t stand to scroll through fakebook (facebook) and see more posts of news stories and petitions to sign. It is such a massive waste of time and energy, accomplishing nothing. At least here on WordPress people are putting real energy into writing, creating, and conversing.
Thanks y’all. For being awesome. For being present. For thinking and speaking and writing your truth.
Is Facebook really that awful? Is WordPress really that great? Is the sky actually falling? What do you think?
