Warning: Post Easter Rant Dead Ahead

I need to report that Earth Day was a giant step forward for no one. My theory is that people will act in their best interests at all costs. It's strange because just common sense would allow you to look at Los Angeles traffic and see it's completely out of control but the right wing pundits see it as evidence that all is humming along, industry is providing for us all. Fighting in Lybia has nothing to do with us. Right?

So, the question is this: Have we no limits in our quest for comfort? Is our comfort more important than the comfort of a dolphin or a kid in Uzbekistan?

My answer is Yes and No.
No, we have no limits in our quest for comfort...but
Yes, if we actually knew what was going on we would suddenly have limits based on whatever shred of humanity that Walmart has not taken from us in exchange for Hannah Montana accessories. BUT, because of the culture of isolation that dominates in America, it is better not to ask and not to tell but to go about your daily selfish and specialized business. Eat your mashed peas. Drink your soda pop. Watch your sitcom. SCRATCH YOUR FUCKING ASS!

This is one of my arguments against the "efficiency method" of specialized tasks. We all specialize in a single task, we get good at it, we excel and we never turn our heads, we never see the big picture. Ask me what has ruled my life and I'll tell you it's my attempt to see the big picture. Ask me what pisses me off the most and it is a specialized ignorant fuckwad who hasn't left his little bubble of commercialized protective womb, and who has answered phones for 15 years and driven the same five miles to work, SPEAKING TO ME LIKE HE HAS ANY IDEA ABOUT THE WORLD BECAUSE HE READS THE NEWSPAPER. You want to talk about tornados? Then come live in the midwest for a few months. THEN talk to me about tornados.

This has been the common trait I've noticed in my travels...people who have no idea what their neighbors do, let alone what it means to mine coal from Appalachia. Anyone else out there march for a winter in the Kentucky coal country planting trees? Well, I did and I'm thinking what I saw is not common knowledge. I thought people understood what coal mining meant to the land and the people. I mean, we can't just be ignorantly turning on light bulbs can we? There can't be a massive holocaust in West Virginia and Tennessee where the poor are being poisoned and killed so their land can be bombarded. Right? You'd hear about something like that on the news...right after Jersey Shore.

Raise your hand if you've spent some time in the Cumberland Gap. Of course if you actually saw the poverty and cultural violation of Appalachian families who were sold out by their governor and then fucked in the ass by you and me, then maybe you'd be living in your van too. But for fuck's sake don't ask questions about the smokestacks that stink of dead flesh. Just go about your business. DON'T DO ANYTHING ABNORMAL! DON'T GET INVOLVED! KEEP FEEDING YOUR FACE! Do your one specific job and obey the traffic signs. There's some award for obedience given to you at your funeral. Sure. NIXON AND ELVIS WILL BE HANDING THEM OUT.

Go fuck yourself and read up on what your heroes want you to do....

LIMBAUGH: By the way, this is Earth day, ladies and gentlemen. Well, what am I going to do for Earth Day? I'm going to have every one of my cars driven as much as possible today; I've got my airplane flying to Los Angeles and back; let's see, all the lights are going to be on, the air conditioning down to 68 degrees in all, well, four out of the five houses. The property manager likes it at 65. Let's see, we're going to have all kinds of beef. I'm fixing Allen Brothers all weekend long. I personally am going to see to it that we lose two acres of rainforest. [Premiere Radio Networks, The Rush Limbaugh Show, 4/22/09]tweet

...Or D) educate yourself so you are no longer a consumer drone.

Ohhhhh, I can't even contain my hatred for this cunt cocksucking Liddy. What a fucking Nixon pawn. What a Republican rube with hollowed eyes and soulless belly. May his hell be filled with hungry polar bears. FUCK HIM! Lord, how did our school systems produce this monster? I swear a country that could enable him to commit crime to keep Nixon in office, go to jail for five years and then speak to others and be respected is beyond salvation. Liddy is dirt, scum, trash to be thrown into the ocean where sharks can tear him to shreds. RUN OVER HIPPIES>? IN A HUMMER???
