Decades ago I "got in the face of" a woman I had considered to be my best friend of a lifetime who was bitching about how her taxes had gone up for the previous year and how unfair that was.   In a normal tone of voice, I said to her, " I told you before we voted that so and so didn't give a shit about you by class and income and you pooh-poohed me, and he threw you under the bus."   She got up and left the cronies' breakfast table we had sat at for years since La Madelaine in Dallas opened and never spoke to me again.  Neither did any of her friends.  I finished my half baguette, had another cup of coffee, read until it was time to drive on to work and did just that.  I am not sorry I said what I said, nor where I said it. I learned several things that day.  Most people do not want to hear the truth, and they don't want to hear it publicly.  Most people who claim to be your friends, aren't.  I continued to have breakfast and read there until a few weeks before I moved out of Texas for good.  That was 20 plus years ago.

I've since lost friends and in part was disowned by family members over politics.  No one likes to hear the truth unless it's flattery.

I can't live with applause.  I do care if I've lost a genuine heart-met person from my life.  However, I don't think that's the case.   And right now, whether you faint of heart faux progressives are having widdul emoshunul communiptions, I don't give a rip.  No more same old same old dammit. It's time to speak up again and probably die in a vacuum of hostility outside of the bell glass.  Well, the last moments are turned inward anyway.

What follows still has some capitals in it for you faint of heart.  The athritis is acting up something fierce today, along with the insomnia that comes with body aches, so I'm done editing things to keep you from throwing yourselves on your fainting couches and congratulating one another on how sensitive you are.

 I. If you never met the children who were killed in Connecticut nor their parents, nor their teachers, and you're wringing your hands and you -- a) own a gun.   b) Do not intend to spend a minimum of one hour a day until such a law is enacted working to get all but one solitary single-fire hunting rifle per person outlawed, then frack you, you paw-wringing, maudlin, smelly dog hysterics-for-show-hypopoopers.  You don't hunt, you're emotionally useless, you're spiritually fleabitten.   So, all of you there, get the frack off my porch. It's tiny, and there's no room for twits like you anyway. If I won't put up with door to door proselytizing Mor(m)ons or any other religion's idea-shills, dorks selling junk that's been outlawed by one regulatory agency or another and fools claiming to be realtors, them I have no room for you either.

 II. If you think that your brief and ineffective and unintended stay at Happy Acres where you were involuntarily committed because you were a danger to yourself, even if not to others, makes it okay for you to own a solitary single fire hunting rifle or a handgun, you're wrong and frack you, hypocrites.

III. If you think that crazy people shouldn't have handguns but it's okay for you to have them, then frack you, you paw-wringing, poop-for-cranial-stuffing, equivocating stupid smelly-dog hypopoopers.  You yipyipyappers get the frack off my porch, also.

For those of you who think it's your god-given right to own guns of all kinds, and/or to turn your "private property into an armed and booby trapped compound --

It's faux-liberally politically incorrect to tell you to frack off or to tell you to leave the country or to tell you to frack yourselves one last time and end your own and no one else's existence violently next to the graves you have thoughtfully dug for yourselves, as after all no one else should have to clean up after you ever again, so pretty please with treacle on it imagine a fitting and proper end for yourselves.

It's giving folks the vapors for me to say what I think every time I happen to mistakenly turn on the news and discover you've driven someone else to an act of mass mayhem AND enabled the poor b*stard to arm him/herself to the teeth in order to do that act of mass mayhem.  As you're set in your ways, you've become an an enemy of your species, not just of your unwilling neighbors andnot just the personally unknown fellow citizens to whom you are no more than a probable somwhen terrorist, and whom good sane folks should have the brains and the gumption to be scared shitless of you, but probably don't.  The paw-wringing fainting couch crowd are not part of that mass of normal folk. but never mind. You aren't aware in the first place.  That's the problem.

I'm so g*d damned hearbreaking tired of the continual artificial very-last-rate drama made by all of you who are hooked on creating the milieu of violence which exists in this country and is blandly ingested with every newspaper you purchase, with most of the television you view, with a lot of the most popular music you listen to, with all of the reality TV you believe is "mahvelous" and "real" and how you should think and be.

 I'm fed  up with the phony bland "normalcy" thesome of the rest of you are determined to project as if THAT were any realer or healtheir than the obverse.  It ISN'T.  Does shouting offend you?  Then get off your complacent winkled asses and stop the violence.  Don't just get rid of the handguns.  That's only the tip of the  behavioral iceberg.

While it's unfashionable of me and censorable of me to suggest to those of you in this country who are in the usual pignorant right wing denial that anything's wrong with the US's milieu of waste, violence, excess, death, guns guns guns, handwringing without change, etc. that you limit your violence to yourselves ONLY, and that before you begin your ritual of violence upon yourselves that you dig your own graves and dispose of your worldly accumulation of death porn and cheetos and whatever else you've been hoarding and ingesting in such massive quantities, and since it's a societal no-no to tell you to feed yourselves to sharks, or leap off cliffs, can't you find SOME way to remove yourselves and your hell-bent on it mayhem and destruction and sickness OFF OF this poor SUFFERING PLANET?

The people who go crazy and actually DO the violence are driven to it by you, and by your unwililngness to pay for long-term care for folks like them when they're broken and can't be fixed and have literlaly worn out and worn down those who love them and tried to care for them.  It's UNFASHIONABLE to treat or heal the most violent people, and it's a no-no to tell those of you who MAKE those poor souls crazy to do away with yourselves.

Where in hell is Jonathan Swift?

Now, seriously, please get off my porch, and if you ever gave a damn about the species you are a part of, get off the planet somehow.  Please.  Not for me.  I'm old.  For the young-uns others are going to pop out, against all reason.

Thank you.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

            It's because companies use software on their networks that block sites with certain words in their titles, causing the sites search hits to not show up for people.

            The word "fuck" is a word that gets blocked, "fu*k" does not.

      while grim things occurred, people didn't pile stuffed squshy baby toys and cheap bouquets and santeria candles in glass containers, and idiotic helium balloons everywhere something horrific had occurred.  They didn't line up out of camera range to get their 12 seconds of artful blubbering to a reporter on camera in hope that they'd be the most pathetic and not be edited out of the on-air footage, and handwring for days afterward.

      For the on-air (unpronouncable string of filthy profanity that doesn't even begin to describe television reporters), the saying "If it bleeds, it leads" doesn't even distantly approach how they make up news and force you to have whatever opinions they and their superiors have decided you will wear.  And you buy it and nothing changes, lah-di-dah.  Jesus wept, you all look ridiculous!  And you all look artificial.  And you all look as if you had the IQ's of damged rutabagas.

      The evening news actually reported world events.  World events. People in this country actually *knew what was going on in the rest of the world simply from watching the evening news.  What a frakking concept.

      I'm not in denial about these children's and adults' murders.  I'm not fed up that the event was reported when it was reported.  

      I'm not fed up that maybe this time enough people will actually get on their congresscritter's asses and stay on them that they might actually force *real, enforceable federal gun control legislation go pass in both houses.

      Also a must-include is the confiscation of current weapons caches like the monster buy-ups that occurred this past weekend in Oregon after the shootings which sickens a lot of folks
      -- finally.

      If you find this diary offensive, walk on.  However, take your piety and your self-righteousness and your projection of what is PC and shove it, bub.

      •  It doesn't sound like he's "diagnosing" anyone... (4+ / 0-)

        ...nor calling them "crazy."

        The debate over gun control aside, one of the things we're learning from Newtown and the rest of these shootings is that our society's attitudes and structures regarding mental illness are broken. Part of ending that, I think, is ending the presumption that anyone who needs to see a therapist about anything is "crazy," that suggesting that someone needs to see a therapist about mental health issues is a pejorative thing.

        If it were clear from this diary that the writer had a potential heart issue, or cancer, or something else (not sure how that would be made clear, but for the sake of argument) we likely wouldn't see it as "doing violence" to the diarist if someone suggested they go see a doctor.

        Now, I don't know your history with the above commenter so I don't know if there's something that indicates to you that he's writing in bad faith—but I find it hard to quibble with his suggestion, if it's meant in good faith.

        The diarist is telling people who disagree with him/her that society is better off without them and that they should go commit suicide. Such language is radically outside the boundaries of acceptable discourse (to say nothing of site guidelines)—and it seems to me to be an indication that at least on some level, the diarist may have some issues that a trained professional could potentially understand, diagnose, and help with.

          Wrong.  Incorrect, And this is why telling others what someone they can read for themselves said is just another version of the game of "telephone."

          What I said was that people bent on violence with guns, instead of goading others into wreaking havoc with the toys *they have purchased, should wreak havoc *solely on themselves and as soon as possible because there is no room for that kind of hate and violence in a sane society.

          And you got it backward.  You want the person who suggested they go off and be as briefly insane as possible to be removed while they remain and you get to wring your bony claws over the damage they cause.

        If you "do not see it as violence" as you said upthread the obviously violence-endorsing remarks in the diary, than surely 'you should see someone about some of this' cannot be understood as 'doing violence to that person'.

          I wrote because none of you frakking sissies has the stones to say to the gunnuts and their syncophants that it's time for them to use their hatred and their guns on themselves instead of on others.

          Until you do so, *you are complicit in paw wringing squirrelly complicity.

          Grow half a stone at least and hold the mirror up to them and tell them "use it on yourselves first when it comes to guns."

          I'd rather clean up after a series of 30 single gun suicides than after 30 gun mass murders a year.

          How about you?

          Not that no need for cleanup wouldn't be better, but that requires no guns at all in this context.

    Good rants get the message and the anger out there without fracturing the dynamics of the community, and members goading this diarist on (though it seems to be a type and split) are welcome to their opinion, but seem to be missing the big picture.
    The diary has its moments of imagery, just moves us into an area of advocacy that's inappropriate IMO especially at this raw-nerved time.

    First HR I have ever given out since joining, and I just realized I HR'd  the wrong remark.
    Nobody freak.

      that she "straightens up and flies right" in the future, which I can tell by her overall tone, she is already destined to do.

      That was my official UN translation.

      And to mother hen a little more...
      "Frick" woulda been better than frack; just because frack and the awl companies and all, I think they have a patent pending trademark on the term. It means "to remove natural gas by making small earthquakes and shit tons of money by destroying the fresh water supply and if done quick enough, no legislation will stop us because the damage will be done."
      Fuck was fine throughout the piece, except in the title because people not working at work and looking at Dkos will get blocked sometimes.

      I think the Python ensemble was completed with big rubber, galoshes.

      Not that it matters, but you remind of me someone I used to know who was also very restrained in her opinions. And also quite able to elucidate succinctly when requested. She was a transplanted Californian married to my West Texas father living in the 'burbs of Houston in the Seventies. The dynamic was interesting.
      I learned much at her knee as a teenager.
      That was long ago, she never tried to get back in the bell jar either, worked out just fine as far as I could tell.

        BattleStar Galactica, or as I've called it for 30 years "Cattlecar Galaxative".  It means "fuck" and even as it is used in the natural gas and oil industry, it still means "fuck" because frakking (no C) for petroleum products is fucking the goddamned planet and killing all living matter within miles of the site of the frakking... and those who are doing it are international criminals and should be put on trial at the Hague, gods damn them and godz damn those who justify what they're doing as "necessary".

        Getting back on subject, I still invite those who enable and incite gun violence to do violence only upon themselves and hopefully with their own special tools, rather than selling them and arming the weak-willed to do their bidding.

        And whether you HR this or not, it's a reflection on you and not on the person or diary you target, you silly person you.

        Bell Jar relates to my husband's last hour. I watched intently as "hospice" care on our insurance didn't mean "dies in a facility" it meant "you pay a tech who charges 100 a pill to administer medicine so you do *that yourself, but the tech watches you like a hawk so you don't administer overdoses" but she did help me keep moving my husband's body back up the elevated bed after he wriggled in pain because he needed the elevation for pain relief as well as to be able to breathe.

        But that last hour he turned inward before he went into a final coma and agonal breathing. He was aware I was holding his hand, but he had no thought or words for me.  the part of his brain not eaetn up with tunor was totally focused on the process his body was making of shutting down.

        That, Thousandwatts, is "the bell jar". It's a thing that seemsto slide gently over a person as they die finally after illness, or which one either pulls down over oneself at the end or one pulls over onself when one wants to die or is pushed over a person when what they say is socially really too uncomfortable for a little group of friends and cronies to bear.  It may not be a real vacuum, but they pretend it is and one is supposed to die under it. Well fvck the people who throw out the bell jar.  They're chickenshits.

        I went many years silently putting up with crap I saw and not reacting extremely to extreme events going off around me.  

        At first I painted or made prints about it.  Then I began at times to write.  I still write at times, but mostly I am publicly and acidly forthright about events as they occur. it's because I know I have little time left and as hard as I have worked in my life... as a volunteer, and hands on... from clinic escort to antiwar marches to pride parades to habitat for humanity, to weekly contact with elected representatives to "drive5" voters to the pioll, to voter registration work -- things are horrifically worse than when I started overt volunteering at age 16 and there isn't enought time.. and I'm worn out and worn down and sad that there's so little time and so little willingness to get up, get pissed off and get fucking busy..

        Oh, to hell with it all.

        But I am NOT deleting this.  THAT will have to be a site owner and paid flunkey act.,

        I fart in your general direction. Now run away before I taunt you some more

  •  Delete this. (0+ / 0-)

    Merely removing the "F-bombs" from your eliminationist hate-screed fails to address the central problem that this is an eliminationist hate-screed & does not belong here.

    Delete this now.

    You will not be here for long, I predict.

    •  your loss, not mine (0+ / 0-)

      That word is mine.  You may use it with attribution.

      Another word I created which has been in use for 20 years or more is "threadhiemers".

      Again, I tell you, your loss not mine.

      I can still read, as I've done for years.  

      However, the traffic and the comments I have will be in discussions elsewhere, the the owner won't get the traffic.

      And the assummption that all the traffic is invective is downright stupid.

      gunbums and their mass consumption ,mass murder, bigger bangs are better bangs mindset *deserve*  the profanity and the invective.  They ARE terrorists and should be eliminated from society. Instead you and others are having conniption fits over the fvcking sthyle of the fvcking eviction notice.
