Roxanne Tellier – Don’t Be Drunk Uncle

Posted in Opinion with tags , , , , , , , on March 13, 2017 by segarini

Everyone has one – that opinionated, though largely under informed, relative, friend, or acquaintance, that  we dread having a conversation with. Our kinder, gentler side tells us we need to play nice with the crazy person, after all, who else will put up with them? And so, inevitably, an occasion arises where Drunk Uncle is pity invited to join the family to dine, and somehow and inevitably, ends up commanding the room.

We have swallowed the Kool-Aid, jumped the shark, and lifted the horse’s tail.

…and in so doing, created a world imagined by Phillip K. Dick, Hunter Thompson, Mike Judge, and Stephen King.  Curated by Gary Larson, Louie CK, and Rod Serling…and now occupied by even our Brightest Lights, who have been sucked into this Black Hole along with the rest of us. That annoying sound you hear are millions of knuckles, dragging across the Linoleum Floor of Destiny…and the wailing of the still upright Brain Trust that allowed this to happen….

Segarini – Teamwork 2

Last night I watched the Director’s cut of a film called “Cowboys and Aliens”, and the first Part of Ken Burns’ epic history of America’s National Parks. In both of these disparate entertainments, the wisdom and spirituality of the American Indian brings calm and understanding, and makes sense of the importance of the wealth of our surroundings, of the beauty of nature, that we have all but destroyed in the pursuit of money, control over others, and intolerance. We need to unite and embrace a lot of what the Indigenous peoples of this continent have believed for centuries, and face off with those whose obsession with the accumulation of wealth and power over others. I want Gene Rodenberry’s future, not George Miller’s. It’s time we stopped whining and yelling and arguing…and DID something about our problems.

Bob explains The Cheeto-Stained Ferret-Wearing Shitgibbon and the Hordes of Darkness

Bob and the Shitgibbon

The Shitgibbon is not The problem. The Hordes of Darkness are The Problem.

It just took them this long to find someone as incompetent, ill-informed, addle-brained, self absorbed, graceless, clueless, and morally corrupt as they are, who is willing to lead them in their war against common sense, reason, tolerance, progress, and humanity.

…and by “lead”, I mean “used” to further the insanity the Hordes of Darkness have embraced.

If only Orkin had a spray for these pests….
