Well, that was a fun filled week. I had the pleasure of driving to and fro the ends of the earth, all for the sake of some scenic rocks and shrubs. I did, however, get to meet some good friends up in Newport, RI, where we cavorted amongst fellow racist white people — who seem to hog all of the money in that part of town.
My vacation, more or less, was chauffeuring around the family, eating lobster rolls. I had an opportunity to frequent several antique shops and add to my ancient book collection. It is one of my favorite past times, that and collecting old newspapers.
Did you know back in the early civil war days soldiers were ‘paroled’ instead of imprisoned when captured? The way it worked was, if you got caught your info was taken and you abided by an honor system to go home and wait to be exchanged for someone of similar rank, and then go back into the war to fight and die. When the north finally started to realize this was prolonging the war, this practice was suspended and then horrible things happened as total war descended upon the south — including the atrocities by the south at Andersonville.
While some out there carelessly discuss civil war and how it is needed to ‘fix things,’ I don’t think you realize what you’re asking for. Extremes on both sides are stupid and get in the way of progress. Sometimes I just feel like walking away from it all, running freely, naked, in the green fields of Ireland — amidst my ancient brethren.
America sucks, truth be told. The culture is a hamburger and milkshake and its people are boring and violent. Because we’re all so greedy, the country is constantly trying to fuck everyone over, including its own people. The money supply is a laughing stock and the financial system, as a whole, is built to collapse. I suppose it’s the best worst system, aside form Switzerland. But they won’t let any of you losers there, unless you have something to offer.
For now, enjoy your polarized nation, bereft of healthcare and dignity, warring across the globe for the benefit of people you’ll never meet or see in your entire lives.

Ciao and yes I’m still a vegetarian, with an occasional feast of lobster.
