Greetings America and welcome to Dark House....again. I'll be honest with all of you, I never wanted to be here again. I had every intention of leaving this shit behind. There was an epiphany, if you will, that yours truly experienced some time ago. A realization that all of this hatred, angst, and general malcontent I feel towards the world in general was, not only unhealthy, unproductive, and pointless, but immature as well. So I decided to let it all go.
I settled down and married the love of my life. I gave a shot a religion; tried to be a Buddhist until I found out they are more depressing and self deprecating than Christians, so I settled on Taoism....it’s just easier. Became an avid pot smoker in an attempt to cease grinding my teeth in my sleep and nullify my compulsion to choke the shit out of complete idiots. In a nut shell, transformed myself from an angry, raving, psychotic (yet strikingly handsome) potential terrorist into a peace and love preaching (still strikingly handsome) hippie.
Despite the uncountable naysayers and critics to this approach, things were proceeding swimmingly. Then today, December 14, 2012 happened.....and now here we are......so here we go.
Fuck all of you.
Fuck this country.
Fuck this society.
Fuck all these ridiculous, self serving, vapid trends all of you Fucks subscribe to.
Fuck Pinterest (still have no idea what that is).
And, fuck all your opinions.
Fuck all you ignorant, under-educated, self-righteous, self-appointed activists.
And fuck your easy access to social media.
Fuck the Mayans, and fuck their chronology
. Fuck our president.
Fuck our congress.
Fuck our judges.
Fuck the police.
But, right back again; Fuck you America.
Today 6 innocent, hard working, responsible adults and 20 tender, young, precious children were brutally slain with no rhyme nor reason.
I've lived through tragedy. I've seen death. I've seen atrocities committed by men. But, this is too much.
We've finally seen the worst we can do, anything past this will just be some jackass trying to one-up what has already been done.
Now, to all of you who are focused solely on the tragedy of this day, holding your children tight, knowing how fragile and precious this life is, I mean no offense.
However, to the rest of you; the know-it-alls, the I-told-you-so’s, the Right/Left finger pointing Talking Heads, the agenda pouncing vultures and self-serving sycophants broadcasting your ideologies hypocritically standing proud in the face of opposition all the while pleading for validation from your fellow misinformed, ignorant colleagues....pray to whatever fictional deity you choose because you have completely dissolved any merit for your existence in this world.
People....babies died today.....horribly. I can't remember the last time I've felt tears in my eyes, but be assured, they flow as I write this.
Tell you what, America, I'll make a deal with you. I'll forgive, accept, and even heed any opinion or rant you choose to spew about this situation so long as you fill these requirements:
- You are a parent of a child. I don't care if you are a full-time, part-time, adopted, seasonal parent. So long as you are a parent.
- You have ever been a teacher. I tend to be a little harsh on teachers. Having been one myself, I find them pretentious and self-glorifying. However, I also know that they get to experience, every day, that joy in watching a child understand a foreign concept that they personally led them through. It's a connection that cannot be expressed in words, a connection that few people ever get to experience.
If you do not fall into either of these categories; please shut the fuck up. I don't care what experience you have in whatever field, personal or professional, shut the fuck up. You haven't earned the right to play with the rest of us.
Well, that's it for this preaching from the Dark House. Obviously, I can't leave you people to your own devices so be assured, there will be more to come.
