And I'm not exaggerating.
I still managed to put out another article on criminaljusticedegree.com without wilting. However, my first published draft was woo-eee and I had to rush in there and edit some things. Heat and brain work don't always mix. This time I talked about some personal commitments to make for today's police work. Seems like common sense, but yet it so easy to be complacent.
In the homeland news, the politics still seem to dominate the headlines despite the more important tragedies across the globe. I really am wary of international travel right now. Not that something might happen anywhere, but gee golly. I just want to lock myself up in a mountain cabin until it is all over and enjoy some peace. Crazy assed people. I mean people is crazy. All people. Everywhere.
And I'm not even talking about the homefront which is bonkers.
It's like America took it's head and put it so far up its own ass that we just look like new version of those teletubby freaks.
There really isn't any reliable news source out there. They are all skewed to an agenda of sorts. Bastards.
The only thing that sparked my attention this morning was on the radio when I heard Michelle Obama say something along the lines that it was hard to wake up every morning in a house that slaves built. OMFG. Seriously. We can't change history. It is where we came from and we can only change the present and sway the future, nothing in the past can be altered unless you are Marty McFly and Doc Brown.
At least appreciate the carpentry and architecture for Pete's sake. It is a beautiful building. Pet the damn thing and pray if all else fails. Fuck.
I guess I am getting sick of people living in the past and trying to knock down the truth of how America came to be and the history of it. History is good and bad, brutal and triumphant. There are victories and failures and lots of what the fucks. But fuck me in the ass...stop trying to cover it up or destroy monuments. Just because there is a statue of a dude doesn't mean we worship him. We just look at what he looked like and maybe some moment in his or her career. Martin Luther King Jr. didn't go around with all this nonsense. He trudged forward and focused on today.
I have never heard of such a thing as a monument movement to destroy historical pieces. Stupid. It's not like Gengis Khan or Hitler where they were rulers or dictators and we salute them every day. Weirdos. It's a freaking statue of a dude on a horse.
I think it feels good just to walk up to him and flip him off, saying, "Yeah, fuck you, dude. I have a lot of black friends. I even was married to one. What do you think about that?"
Oh, I forgot to tell you that I am not always politically correct.
Ok. I think I got that frustration out. Typing is so good for the soul. Emotions just spew freely and later you might have to delete everything, but right now I feel pretty solid.
