We’re a selfie nation with a needy belief in our exceptionalism. We’re addicted to drugs, eating, shopping and non-stop entertainment. We can only receive news and information in an entertainment format with dramatic soundtracks, exploding graphics and cute people on camera.
So we elected a selfie president.
Mazel Tov! and fuck us. USA! All praise to the uneducated holy right wing delusion-and-rage junkies. The lazy grousing news geeks like me who vote then go back to grousing. The college degreed Lefty not-voting–‘cause-voting-for-the-power-structure-is-selling-out insta-babies.
Here ye: I grouse a warning to whatever will be left of the world 30 years from now: this is what Empire and material over-abundance does to living organisms.
Verily I screech unto the ever-vacationing Lord – Fuck us, oh Lord! Fuck us all! We deserve it. We give thanks for our god-given freedom to whine, spend, spin and stupid ourselves into decline.
Yeah, and sorry bout gunking up your planet. I’m confident the bacteria and cockroaches will serve you far better. You should’ve started your vacation on that first Saturday.
