I was always told a gentleman should steer away from vile subjects such as politics. Lucky I am no gentleman.

 

Doesn’t matter how much you will try to stop us, we will find a way to have fun. Some of it might even be legal. You can ban dancing but you can't put us in jail for tapping our foot with the rhythm.

 

 

You cant sell news stories that have data and cautious predictions. Where is the panic? Where is the impending doom? C'mon people , give me something to work with here…

Seven Truths You Don't want them to know.

OK, before you read this you have to promise you will not tell anyone what you read here. Ok? I don’t want to get into trouble. You know they are listening. And for the sake of this article, and this article alone, "they" are politicians. I just prefer using "they" as the word politician gives me an automatic gag reflex and I really try to avoid using it if I can.

  • We don’t really care
    The only reason politicians make huge campaigns and go around the country in silly painted busses giving speeches and kissing babies, is that very little sane people will actually go seek a politician. We don’t care who you are, we don’t care where you've been or what you claim you did, do, and will do.

    If it wasn’t for you leaking your dirty laundry to the media, we wouldn’t even care about it. (although today things are a bit different as politicians and the media have the same handlers so it might seem we do care, well, if "we" means network executives , then yes "we" care.)


  • You ARE going to legalize it in the end
    This is what keeps us sane, the fact in the end even politicians can't stop the inevitable, they are just speed bumps. (Now THAT is a visual image that makes me really smile) it doesn’t matter if it is cannabis, gay marriage, immigration laws, regulation… in the end things work out somehow.

    At least until the pendulum of stupidity starts moving in the opposite direction as part of her natural course.


  • We will have fun
    Doesn’t matter how much you will try to stop us, we will find a way to have fun. Some of it might even be legal. You can ban dancing but you can't put us in jail for tapping our foot with the rhythm.

    We don’t need to overcome, we don’t need to protest or even to rebel to have fun. And if I look at the world, I see that the places that are most poor and most beaten have the best folk festivals, weddings, music, dancing, the loudest cries of ecstatic sex and pure unadulterated life.

  • We know
    You are not fooling anyone. Well, you are , but these are morons and we don’t like them anyway. You think we don’t see, you think we are naïve. We know. We have always known. We are just lazy.

    There is a big difference. Yes, I saw, but I am not really going to do anything about it. The new Spiderman is opening tonight. and that fact gives me hope, because when we WILL decide to do something about it, it is not going to be in a vacuum and the learning curve will be a fast one. Because we already know.


  • We know you are gay
    Lets face it. I have not met a homophobe in my life that that wasn’t gay. It just comes together. People who are not gay usually don’t really care. Be gay, don’t be gay. We do need interior designers and what you do in your bedroom is not really that intereting. As a gay married guy once said, when asked what do they do in the bedroom – we talk a little about the day, we sleep and we complain we never have sex anymore, just like every other couple.

    So just to let you know that if you have a family-life anti-gay coalition? You are gay. If you have a Christian re-education youth camp to 'reform' gays? You are gay. If you are a head of a tribe that beheads gays? You are gay. Why are these people so afraid of gays? Because it is a threat on their "straightness". They know they want a nice member of parliament to sit on, and they are afraid they are going to like it, so they have to destroy all the evidence.

    They know they are miserable in the lie they live and seeing gay people in the open rubs salt on their wounds. Basically, whenever I see any of these people talk into a microphone I can already imagine them taking the mic in their mouths while moaning. We know.


  • We didn’t really expect to find WMD anywhere
    But we can't resist a good war. And it is so easy to flow with the urine stream of patriotism that goes up and up to our heads. We have to admit. War is fun. Not here of course.

    But on TV it is a great show. And patriotism goes well with bbq and rock music, so it is really a big festival. Burn baby burn.


  • we ARE coming
    And sooner than later.
