Sick of it all

I’m sick of the whiny liberals. I’m sick of the fascist conservatives. I’m sick of the administrative assholes and I’m sick of the bureaucratic bamboozlers.

I’m really tired of people who complain about Wal-Mart but still shop at Wal-Mart.

I’m fatigued by ideological reactionaries, who believe only what their Idols tell them and refuse to consider anything else.

I’m incensed at hypocrites residing in places of prestige and honor, sipping champagne in palaces of power behind windows, walls and gates which separate them from the cries of the governed.

I’ve had enough of ignorant fools and ungrateful allies.

I’m bored with pointing fingers.

I fear the fear of others.

I’m disillusioned with illusionary news.

I abhor this adolescent argument masquerading as debate.

I dismay the disgrace of my nation’s ideals.

I bemoan the bequest of mine and my children’s future to further enrich the filthy rich.

I regret religious fundamentalism.

I despair dreams of destruction.

I despise demolishing beauty and uniqueness in favor of standardization and compatibility.

I’m enraged at irresponsibility.

I'm angry at arrogance.

I'm repulsed by relentless irrelevance.



I’m grappling with hopelessness.

I decline to give in.

I dislike deception.

I hate liars.

I believe things can be better.

I hope I’m right.


Maybe I’m just crying over spilt milk.

But I’m just so sick of it all.


To turn it around, since it’s Thanksgiving and all, I’ll just say that I'm thankful for many things.

Most of all, I’m thankful this is still a country where I can speak my mind freely in forums like this without being arrested or killed.

Yet.

Unfortunately, things don't seem to be going in favor of the Patriots these days. The water hasn't sunk the Titanic yet, but the lifeboats are filling and the band is warming up.

But you’re probably sick of hearing about that kind of truth. I know I am.
