What an ugly time growing up in America — divisiveness at every corner. I joke around a lot and cast aspersions on just about anything that isn’t central to my interests. Pardon me as I ignore everything you stand for. I’ve found equanimity in not giving a fuck.
For example: an earlier version of Le Fly would’ve been OUTRAGED by the Portland folks ripping down the George Washington statue last night — draping its face with the American flag and then burning it.

Truthfully, I don’t give a shit about George Washington and certainly not his statue. If I feel that way, maybe it’s the failure of my government to instill some form of patriotism in me — or maybe I’m a lost cause. I care about the people around me, including you fuckers. I care about the god damned stock market — for I make my living trading it. Why should I care about a statue in a city I do not live inside of? That is the responsibility of Portland and government. If they cannot protect it, they’ll have one less statue.
What did those folks accomplish by ripping it down? Their lives still suck and they’re still living out of a tent with bunch of freaks, whilst I have a net worth much greater than anything they’ll ever dream of acquiring.
Why is that?
Because I care about things that work for me and my people and not about fucking statues and/or causes that do not affect me.
For all those fighting for a cause more than you’re own lives — good luck. Life is fleeting and without definition. I’d like to spend my time popping champagne corks into the faces of my friends, amongst billows of cigar smoke, and pomp, and circumstance.
