The Fuse is Burning

So, I woke up to the horrible news of a massive fire in a London apartment complex. That was terrible. I felt so bad for those people. On top of everything else London has been through that was just awful. So far it looks like an ‘accidental cause’ and not ‘terrorism’, which is good…sorta.

Then I finished my coffee, kissed my hubby good-bye for the day and went to work. I started doing my thing at the Hall. I popped Yahoo! News and got the news about the “DC Shooter”.

I nearly choked on my coffee.

Hey, I’m big enough to admit it! I’m also big enough to admit that my very first thought was; About fucking time!

Second thought: What took so fucking long?

No, seriously, if you couldn’t see that coming from miles away you need to have your eyes and your brain examined. You do. So get to that pronto.

I read about ‘the incident’ with those same two thoughts rolling around in my head.

I would like to say I was ‘shocked’, I would like to say I was ‘saddened’, I would like to say I was ‘outraged’ but, since I’m not a hypocrite, my feelings were nothing more than; Meh, another day in the USA.

That could be because I was already on ‘overload’ reading about the upcoming Megyn Kelly/Alex Jones interview. Could be. Not sure. Please, don’t forget that I live in CT so Sandy Hook (and it’s retarded deniers) hit real close to home and stick deep in my craw. I even had to fight with my own daughter over it when it happened because she was brainwashed by InfoWars. Finally, sanity prevailed, and Mom was able to get through when I told her that a Union Member was directly effected by the tragedy. Chances are I will never forget that day, it’s right up there with 9/11. I was sitting in the office, doing my thing (much like today) when the Yahoo! News started telling me about it and everything…I mean EVERYTHING in the office stopped. We turned on the TV. We stood there together in utter silence watching the events unfold. If you, yes YOU, reading here right now think it didn’t happen you can feel free to pucker up and kiss my fine white ass.

Any-hoo….

Yahoo! wouldn’t stop with the news and I quickly became addicted to the Comments Sections of the articles running. At first they were full of the same bullshit; it was some illegal, it was some terrorist, it was some ‘fucking Muslim’, the shooter is black!, the shooter is Mexican, the shooter is some ‘trumptard’, the shooter is some ‘libitard’ and blah blah blah. Really, the Comments Section of any article on Yahoo! are not for the faint of heart or anyone with a functioning brain for that matter.

Then it came out that the shooter was actually was 66 year-old WHITE AMERICAN citizen from Illinois.

Oh bummer.

First reports said the shooter had been ‘taken into custody’. Then Trump announced the shooter was dead and had died from his wounds.

Huh?

Hey! Alex Jones! Why don’t you investigate THAT?

Then it came out that the DC Shooter supported Bernie Sanders and everyone jumped on poor Bernie as though he’d done the shooting himself. I was a Bernie Sanders supporter and many times I’ve thought about shooting someone but since I don’t own a gun…..

So the Comments Sections absolutely exploded! Not with anything intelligent, mind you, just with vitriol. Just a bunch of people squawking to hear themselves squawk. No thought. No reason. Just ‘progressive’ this and ‘progressive’ that and ‘libitard’ this and ‘libitard’ that. My favorite of which is ‘liberalism is a mental disease’. Sadly, that’s nothing new. The comment, I mean. It runs RAMPID through the Comments Section on anything and everything, which causes me to believe–based on the number of posts–whoever actually thinks that has multiple Yahoo! accounts. Well, ya know, them and their 10 buddies. If you pay close attention to the Comments Sections on Yahoo! it’s pretty easy to see there is a small group of people who probably have at least 5 Yahoo! accounts each. Yahoo! accounts are really easy to get. Personally, I actually have 3 of them. I only use 1 (for work) but I have access to at least 2 others that I’ve created over the 23 years I’ve been on Ye Olde Internet. Total number on Yahoo! accounts I’ve had in that time; 7. Two were yanked from me when Yahoo! was still associated with GeoCities and those 2 GeoCities websites of mine were besieged by bitches who caused them to crash and caused GeoCities to kill my sites and Yahoo! to yank the email addresses associated with them.

Yeah, I’ve been here a long fucking time. I’ve seen it all and I’ve done it all. Trust me when I tell you there’s a mere handful of troublemakers on Yahoo! with multiple accounts. All you have to do is pay attention to the language and the words used to know that. They post–multiple times on multiple sock puppet accounts–and spew every vile thing you can possibly think of. Every so often they go in and change their screen names but if you click their links you can see the truth.

That’s why I laugh at them! I often wonder if they even have a job because, unlike me who looks at Yahoo! only during very fixed hours of the day and only ever 5 days a week…they do it nearly 24/7. That means they have no life and under other circumstances I might actually pity them but…no, sorry can’t muster it up for you while your benefits are being cut by the very person you voted for and you keep championing dead causes like coal.

So, in regards to the DC Shooter and coming from me a mentally diseased libitard, progressive, who doesn’t own a gun because she never has nor will she ever feel a need for one; hahahhahaha.

Despite what the Washington Post’s motto says, Democracy is NOT Dying in Darkness…it is gasping for breath in the full light of day and…no one gives a shit! They only care about themselves and how ‘intelligent’ (cough choke) they think they sound in the Comments Section of Yahoo!

The DC Shooting happened because it was a long time coming.

Congress hasn’t acted in the Best Interest of the People since Obama was elected. Some tried, that’s true, but they were stonewalled by the ‘obstructionist’ ideals people like me are now accused of having.

Many voters and many Congress People made their bloody beds and now they have to lie in them.

Bummer.

Sucks to be them.

And, if you look back at History, every now and then there’s a great shake up. Today is nothing new. In fact according to the Declaration of Independence (written by a bunch of rebellious mentally ill libitard bastards!)

<em>That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.</em>

 

So viva la revolucion

 

 

 

 

Wonder Woman

Hubby and I went to see “Wonder Woman” over the weekend. I’m not a comic book fan, I think I’ve always been fairly clear on that whenever I talk about superhero movies. I did love watching the “Wonder Woman” TV show with Lynda Carter when I was much younger than today. I also liked watching “Super Friends” on Saturday mornings. That’s the extent of my prior knowledge of this character.

Since I knew we would be seeing this movie in the theater, I stayed away from reading anything about it and stuck only to the few trailers that I saw. I always do that, I don’t want anything spoiled for me before I go and see it for myself.

That, for me, may have been a mistake.

First off, it was a good movie, the best DC has offered up in since “The Dark Knight”. Gal Gadot is awesome, I always love Chris Pine, and it all comes together rather nicely. I enjoyed it very much with the exception of a few sticking points that I’m going to discuss now. If you haven’t seen it yet you might not want to read further.

They get the Greek Mythology wrong. Every single movie and TV show seems to do that. I shouldn’t have been surprised, really I wasn’t, I was just disappointed. For the record the Amazons are Daughters of Ares. Yes, they are. They weren’t created by Zeus or by a group of the Gods. Aphrodite didn’t spring them to life. They are literal Daughters of Ares. Now, I know no one but me likes Ares, it seems no one but me actually “gets” Ares but…well…when someone comes along and makes him the Bad Guy to his own Daughters who are no longer his Daughters it kinda puts a big kink in my ability to suspend disbelief. Not to mention when one packages him in such an inferior ‘meat suit’ it really grates on my nerves.

Truly. It does.

Unfortunately, it kept me from enjoying a good deal of the flick. If you don’t mind such things and you like superhero movies I’m sure it won’t bother you at all.

However, on the way home, I realized I’d just found out where my Muse has been for so long and we had a discussion about it that started off with him complaining.

You must redeem me!

Oh? Must I?

You saw what they did to me!

Yes, I did. I also know you haven’t been around and now that you want something from me…

I haven’t been around because I was summoned THERE!

What are you? A Cross Roads demon? You can be so easily summoned these days? Show me the spell, I want to use it.

I’ve been whispering in your ear you haven’t been listening.

Yes, now I see why you’ve been whispering in my ear. They really fucked you over, didn’t they?

YES! Now, please, write the story I’ve been whispering about and redeem me. They were horrible to work for. They didn’t listen to me at all. They just wanted to use me. They’re not like you.

Yes, well, no one’s like me when it comes to you. But, I see you did get a few lines in of your own.

Which he did, right there around the end, there are a couple of sentences that come directly from the Big Guy himself. They were easy for me to spot even though they were delivered so poorly.

Yes, but I had to threatened the writer to do it and did you see who they had portray me? Did you see!

I imagine that threat was no where near as playful as the ones he sometimes delivers to me. I imagine their collaboration had none of our witty banter and one-ups-manship. In fact, I imagine that for The Big Guy it was a lot like being jammed into the Chains of Hephaestus and whipped into submission. Something he’s definitely no accustomed to.

Yes, I saw and I think I know how you feel, you should be upset about that. He’s definitely not up to par when it comes to you.

I started feeling sorry for him. I couldn’t help it. Poor guy. The least they could have done was found some gorgeous hunk to play him on screen. But…no. No, not by a long shot. In fact, the actor who portrays him is so incredibly unbelievable that even if you don’t know Ares you might be very disappointed.

Well?

I’ll see what I can do. No promises but…I’ll see. But you have to die. You have to be in Dis for a good part of the story.

With Zeus, I know. With Raven lording over me, I know. I’ll do it. I won’t put up much of a fight over it.

That’ll be a first.

So perhaps going to see “Wonder Woman” was just the unexpected kick in the pants that I needed. The Big Guy too, because ya know, not everyone is like me when it comes to him. Perhaps there’s a small chance he’s realized that fact. Just a tiny one.
