It would appear that I have unceremoniously dumped this blog. I think I’ve posted twice this month. Nothing has gotten any better in the world-you would think that equals more to write about, and you may be right.
But I’m going through some changes. I have become a Clozapine patient.
This is supposed to help me think clearer. It has not exactly done that. It has altered my thinking, and clouded it a bit. I am struggling to get over some sort of mental hump, which my doctor says I will overcome in due time.
I started this blog in 2007, occasionally going for political laughs.
If you’ve been with me for a while circa 2011, you know I rechristened this blog as a wild-minded, delusional outburst due to my struggle with bipolar disorder. Many of you laughed while I cried out loud, and that was what I wanted.
I have recovered. In 2015, I took the blog in a new/old direction, concentrating my fire on the right wing in this country once again. Like all bloggers, I did it for myself. And if someone wanted to join me on this journey of agitation for just a couple of minutes a day, then that made me happy.
I had a good head of steam going until I quit my job to become a full time Clozapine user. My doctor has been pushing me to use it ever since I’ve been with her. The drug requires an investment. I have to get my blood tested once a week to ensure the drug isn’t causing something called agranulocytosis, which is a fancy way of saying that your white blood cell count is tanking. One in 100 Clozapine users have this issue. In case you are wondering, as of this writing I am not one of the exceptions.
It causes a laundry list of possible side effects. The two I am struggling with is drooling, and having considerable trouble going from sitting to standing. This drug is work-prohibitive in light of all the new things I am going through to be a patient.
I can manage all of this, if there is a benefit to be had. I am having some clarity, but not enough yet, not enough to balance all this new shit that I’m doing. But I’ve committed to this, and have to see if it gives me relief from my disease.
But anyway, the blog has been dead. Lord knows we live in strange times, and I should be here documenting it. I shall return, soon enough. I just wanted to explain that I’m on some new brain juice and I am not quite comfortable writing in what I think would be a new voice.
Catch you later. Something is going to irritate me to the point of distraction and I’ll need to share it.
Thank fuck that even Nevada’s Republicans have a modicum of sanity; Tits McGee is stuck on the farm team. This is a good sign; maybe the crest is breaking and these right-wing maniacs are falling into disfavor. It might be the Trump effect-no Republican is nor will be insulated from Donald Trump’s disgusting megalomania.
I’m so happy for Nevada-that you decided not to support Michelle Fiore for any higher office than that which she already has. You had a choice between boobs, guns and mental illness or something that is recognizable as a governing official.
You chose wisely.
There’s been a rash of non-rational Hollywood has-beens who desperately need attention lately. But the award for biggest dumbshit goes to Stacey Dash, who is still beefing with Barack Obama even though he’s served 7.5 of his eight years. Stacey still thinks it’s 2009:
“We are more divided now than I’ve ever seen in my lifetime,” Dash told radio host Joe Pagliarulo while discussing Obama. “Because he doesn’t like the country.”
I keep hearing this shit about being “divided”. Oh, whatever. Dash is 5 years older than I am and ought to know that we have been “divided” for a long damn time. The last time we were “united” was when someone flew planes into two of America’s most iconic towers. Even I thought it a good idea to start kicking some asses for that stunt. But we’ve been a country that is close to 50/50 leftish and rightish for a good while. But anyway, I haven’t the foggiest idea what she means…I’d be happy to hear about how he divided us and furthermore explain why we require “unity”. That smacks of fascism. Speaking of…
“He’s an Islamic fascist, I believe.”
Oh. Muh. God. Still with this? Still? What is the point of making things up at this juncture? Stacey, he’ll be gone in 5 months. Once again, I am eager to know what Obama has done to get called a fascist.What has he done to earn that label? I got it; Stacey doesn’t know what real fascism looks like from her privileged, passing perch. Moving along:
“He doesn’t like America.”
Fuck you. Barack Obama has saved millions of Americans from bankruptcy by providing affordable healthcare. Stopped the unnecessary deaths of hundreds of American soldiers in Iraq as best he could. Let immigrants come out of the shadows. Didn’t have to keep his food down after saying gay marriage is A-OK. Equal pay for women. There’s a lot more. I’d say the President is crazy about this country. Sure, there’s a list of things that I don’t like that Obama has done but it’s a mighty tiny list in comparison.
“They’ve just politicized Islam and turned it into a fascist government.”
Wow. I don’t know what that means. Very Palinesque.
“The liberal elites own Hollywood,” she said. “And Hollywood dictates the culture of the country. So, as long as they do that, they control the narrative. They control the narrative that is fed to the country. The propaganda.”
“It’s like 21st century Nazism. It’s ridiculous.”
Hollywood dictates the culture? Really? I have never been anything but entertained by Hollywood. I have never seen a movie that has made me change my attitude about “the culture”, which is another thing Stacey wouldn’t be able to define because culture differs everywhere you go in this great land…which to most, is a feature, not a bug. Again, desiring a monolithic “culture” is just a twee bit fascist. What does “the narrative” mean? More bullshit, it’s just all a bunch of made-up nonsense phrases that right wingers parrot after being taught to them by their chosen media outlets. To the best of my knowledge, I haven’t learned a single word device from MSNBC. I may have learned to call Donald Trump Fuckface Von Clownstick from the Daily Show, though.
Then she finishes her dribble by going full Godwin. Which is it, Stacey, Islamic? Fascist? Nazi? I’m surprised you left out communism and socialism because that’s what you do; you just throw around these terms that have important distinctions from each other.
Stacey Dash, while striking, has nothing upstairs. In other words, she’s the perfect “contributor” for outlets like Fox. She’s found a new gig since she’s past her sell date in acting. Eat a dick, tootsie. You are amongst the dividers.
