…on “And At Long Last, Shit That Pisses Me Off”

I’m in line at a local grocer’s when I overhear a man bitching about how this country is headed for a socialist government. He also bitches about taxes. Then he proceeds to pay for his purchases with a FUCKING EBT CARD!

Look dude, I can not take your political views seriously if you do all that shit without any sense of irony. You’re really going to bitch about socialism while benefiting from a fucking socialist program? And it dawns on me. My view, politically, philosophically, religiously and socially will never jibe with everybody because the biggest tenet I try to uphold is – slowly and loudly for the people in back – DON’T BE A FUCKIN’ HYPOCRITE.

If you are on welfare – or have ever been on welfare – you can’t bitch about socialism. Because I know nobody has told you this before but….you’re soaking in it asshole. If you receive disability or social security or any other government run program of that sort….guess what you don’t get to bitch about.

If you are an atheist or neopagan or satanist or or what-the-fuck-ever….you don’t get to preach to me about how religion is ruining shit because believe it or not, your little rant is just as dogmatic as the “christian persecution” you would like to think you’re under.

If you don’t like all these taxes, I would like you to write down your name. That way, I will have a list of people who should in no way want to benefit from the shit that taxes pay for like police, fire, emergency, etc. Because I really want nice things and I only feel it fair that if you hate paying taxes and shit then I should just be able to rob you and have your nice things. Oh, and before you point out how that shit is covered by state and county tax blah, blah, blah and you’re bitching about federal tax. Yeah, remember that military you like to bring up as “defending the freedoms that this government is stealing away from you everyday”. Well, hate to rain on your liberties parade but that shit don’t pay for itself sunshine. Maybe we should start corporatizing those things. Let’s see if that jibes with your “Oh my god, don’t socialize medicine” rant.

Most of this shit really seems to be coming from the libertarian side. This may come as a surprise but there are some things that they say that I can get behind. But do you honestly think you could last in a place that was completely run that way. Lord knows I don’t want to. It reminds me to much of anarchy and I’m the first to admit that I like owning things and don’t want some asshole up and snatching my shit because it’s his “liberty” to do so. And before you get your panties in a twist, yes I get it. Libertarianism is about personal responsibility. But let’s face it, we can be a bit dickish about our shit when we think it’s our “right”. Hell, there are days that I just want to drive down the road like I’m Michael Schumacher but we have rules and shit for reasons. It’s because a lot of us are nowhere near grown enough to be deciding this shit for ourselves (Myself included.)

We are all entitled to our opinions. And it’s cool if you want to voice yours. I do constantly on this here little blog and to my friends.  But sometimes, just sometimes, you people really abuse the fucking privilege. And with absolutely no sense of mother fucking irony.
