Let's just eliminate all the bullshit, shall we?

'Mental Illness,' the passionately memorable
and oft-used boogeyman of The Powers That Be,
is being resurrected once more in the wake of
YET ANOTHER mass shooting.

Once more, as guns have been used to randomly
murder people going about their day, idiots with
microphones wish to focus solely on the shooter
(and their limited, subjective view of his 'profile.')

We're still not talking about a pervasive gun culture.

We're not talking about desensitization to gun use
through the indoctrination process of video games.

We're not speaking about accessibility on a wide scale.

We're not addressing gun laws--or the lack thereof.
(WHOOPSIE! Texas just made a liar out of me! Wait,
what?!?! Are you kidding me? Passage of a law
ALLOWING open gun carry?!? Man, you can't make
this shit up.)

But no...we need a talking point--a singular focus.
A patsy.
An easy target.
A red herring, more palatable to the folks who should really
be on the firing line.

Like 'Commies,' 'The Blacks,' 'Pushy Dykes,'
'Reefer-Madness Kids,' and of course, D. Trump's fave,
'The Illegals' before us, the 'Mentally Ill' are set to be America's newest on-paper Plight.

Get us catalogued.
Get us branded.
Put the WANTED posters plastered on every corner.

The 'Unstable' are coming for you and your kids...
even as gun aficionados and those deemed fit by the
state's less-than-rigorous background checks are actually
doing the damage. (Not to mention the government
sanctioned 'protectors and servers.')

Too bad there's nothing that could be done to reasonably
and responsibly prevent such potential problems with folks
with chemical imbalances or personality disorders....you
know, like, I dunno... easily accessible mental health services,
assistance with meds, availability of counselors, teaching
understanding of mental illness to the public at large, and
eliminating the stigma and misinformation around mental
health issues.

You know....Preventative care, up front, instead of good ol'
American Hindsight and clean-up.

But, you know...I guess that's just Crazy Talk.

Undercover cop needs gun to fend off
unarmed protesters who are filming his act of brutality.
Accountability NOW.
Restraint NOW.
Reform NOW.


     "My country, 'tis of thee,
      sweet land of (promised) liberty,
my hands I wring.
Land where the churches side
with white men full of pride,
every blockhead needs a bride;
Bend over and SING!"

"Guys with camera phones are the worst kind of terrorists.
Better train my assault weapon on him!
Because why act rationally? It's not like I'll face any consequences!"

Another TEX-ASS sized shit-storm is abrew. Ha-ha.

Here it is--in case you forgot.
I know I try and block it out all the time.
Would we really miss it?!

Ah, Texas. Reliable like Napalm, whiskey, and rat poison for 'getting the job done.'

What are they on about this week, you ask?

Check out the New York Times article on how badly they want to be 'let out
of' the Union (such as it is, to be fair.) 
Secession ahoy! (No, wait--we were just pretending all this time!)

Whether it's screwed-up text books for indoctrinating school kids, or being
on the back end of the 1950s for every matter spanning immigration to women's
rights, Texas is what we in the South refer to as 'a Real Problem.'

(Cue dramatic music and a sideways glance indicating 'someone' ought to
do something about said problem!)

Lo and behold, Tex-ass seems inclined to do it for us. I say "Let 'er rip!"

Redesign the U.S. borders, withdraw all federal funding, remove all National
Guardsmen, uproot anything of actual cultural significance (awesome bistros,
art galleries, and blues houses) and tell the rest of these knuckle-heads to
get out! DEPORTED! (as it were.)

What are there, like, fifty cool people in the damned state? Grant those poor
bastards asylum and pay to relocate them. Ya can't be blamed for geographically

rolling craps. Grab Wendy Davis, explain you can't make something delectable
out of shit, and put her to use in a real state.

With Tex-ass gone, the cumulative IQ of the Southern states may actually have
a shot at increasing. The reach of the South will not be as pervasive in cubic feet,
and then we can put enticing fact on all our travel commercials to other countries!
People headed out West from the lower southern quadrant need not fear dealing
with ass-hat Texas law enforcement.

We won't have to deal with as much ludicrous proposals and legislation and
decrees from the Quagmire State. Oh-My-Goodness...wait! Could we actually
make Bushie's "pResidency" null and void? (Unfortunately, there's no time
travel yet, but...fingers crossed.) Crud...never mind...Herbert and Prescott weren't
born in Texas. Drat.

As 'real, proud 'mericans' are wont to say,
"If you don't like it here, Get the FUCK out!"

It's Not 'Political Correctness' We're Worried About

This man is not an important person.
He is, however, an influential person
(and our society has vast difficulty in
differentiating the two.)
His thoughts and opinions of homosexuals are
inspired by laziness, personal bias, clutching
onto ignorance, misinformation, and a man-made
book that has been used to perpetrate the evils
of man for centuries.
Here's why it matters what was said;
       This is the body of a gay man lynched and
burned to death in Uganda. It happened because these people
had similar thoughts and opinions to those of Phil Robertson
and his cronies.
Thinking someone is 'not as moral as' you are leads to
(false) superior thinking. Looking down on others allows
there to be less compassion for them. It sets up a slippery
slope; just look at how extensive the propagandist campaign
against the Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, and others Hitler
raged against. He and his man Goebbels used the repetition
of lies and use of fear to pit public opinion against those
groups long before he tried to physically harm them.
Brain washing.
Spreading misinformation and scapegoating people
leads to actions like this; action brought about by the
rhetoric, money, and teachings of AMERICAN
evangelical pastors and churches, who believe in an support
the idea of gay men and women as 'something less than'
and who see us as acceptable targets.
This is why words matter.
This is why political stances are significant.
These are the realities behind 'beliefs.'
Our lives trump your ill-gotten religious notions.

Forget outrage...
Forget disbelief...
Forget withholding their monies
or even firing these worthless, selfish
cluster fuck asses who have ILLEGALLY

Throw their self-righteous hides
for treason
and attacking the American people's
way of life.

Why are they enjoying the benefits
of a lop-sided double standard
running in their favor?

It's all good--keep it going.
This may be the final straw that
bridges the gulf between the American
public and incites violent action.

It's time.

True Colors: "You know how THEY is!"

So, the big news for the week in DEVLlle (depending on
who you are, naturally,) was that ol' Daniel went and sold
his Sunoco franchise to a new owner.

And when the fact that the new owner is an Indian gentleman
(as in overseas, the Republic of India, South Asia locale) Indian
descent, not Native Peoples--since that was always an offensive
name anyway) became known, THAT was the part that got
everyone all bent out of shape!

Comments from every breed and age about how 'they' act and
how 'they' are taking over. Bits like "You know how they are"
and gloomy catastrophizing about the future of the store, the
quality of the gas, whether the fried chicken would stay, and
what the fate of the current store employees would be.

But all of it through that none-too-subtle veil of disgust and
stereotype-based contempt.

I really try and give people the benefit of the doubt, but when
grown folks act like they've never left kindergarten or experienced
the world in any significant way, it's tiresome. And sad.

But mostly I just can't wait to liberate myself from the cultural
deathtrap and regressive nature of DEVILle.
Here's to goals.
Educating people is no longer on that list.
