While I respect those whose involvement in politics is more than merely voting and/or slapping a sticker on their car, sometimes you just have to sit back and marvel at those who truly believe the only stupid question is the one not asked.
As the picture shows, in late July I was approached by a pro-Trump PAC called Will of the People to come on board as a social media ambassador.
Pretty fancy name for somebody tweeting and retweeting the word about a candidate. I know he simply looked at my page, saw the 85k+ followers, and after the pants tent went away, he made his pitch. Perhaps if he had read my Twitter feed while the blood was rushing downstairs, he would have seen there was absolutely no way in this or any other kind of hell that was ever going to happen. Because while the offer was appreciated, ultimately that offer was a pretty stupid fucking question.
This is not your father's version of bonding...a father and son were treated at the scene for heroin overdoses after the Ohio Highway Patrol received reports of an erratic vehicle on I-75 North in West Chester Township. While both men were treated, and are expected to recover, the father was charged with OVI and possession of drug paraphernalia.
In light of increasing numbers of heroin overdoses, the CDC is reportedly urging friends and family members of users to carry Narcan (Naloxone) with them, in case an emergency arises.
Ain't that some shit? I wonder how much the price of Narcan is going to explode through the roof, if the CDC's advice is taken in large measure. We have seen the tendency of drug companies to take the yard once they get an inch, so how long before some other dipshit drug company CEO is dodging questions or smirking in a chair playing 5th Amendment tag in a congressional hearing? People cannot afford to carry an EpiPen to treat a peanut allergy, but they should stock up on Narcan, just in case? What a load of utter crap.
It occurred to me that it had been quite a while since I had posted anything, about anything, on the blog. That got me to thinking it was time to refresh a bit, especially after running through everything on here and realizing there was half-edited shit up on a couple of pages. Unfortunately, since there is no stud farm for me to retire old blogs to, a name change (or would it be a rebranding?) was in the works.
I mean, I guess I had an excuse in there somewhere, seeing as how I am currently:
Not that I haven't lamented the cornucopia of material to cover, with the two absolute staggering dipshits that have inexplicably made it to mainstream nominee status. I have not been totally silent, as my Twitter account will attest, but I found myself falling into the occasional ruts that accompany the 140 character limit, such as engaging trolls and idiots, and trying to cram too much thought into too little a space. Given the logic presented to me by Hillary and Donald's sheeple, it can be like selling Eskimos on the notion of a volcano god.
I still plan on writing about politics, although I am probably going to trend a bit closer to state and local issues affecting people here in Indiana. It is becoming an interesting time to be a Libertarian, and the effects are just as noticeable here as they are starting to become on a national level, and we still have a lot of work to do here. I'll save my national analysis for when somebody political says or does something stupid or really questionable. Hell, maybe I will have some good news to post come November.
I'll still snark at celebrities when they say or do something either stupid or really questionable, and will still not care when people start pissing and whining about my being "mean." Whenever a news story comes along that looks like the drunken offspring of truth and fiction, I will no doubt poke fun at it or drown it in a tub of sarcasm. In other words, nothing much has changed, rather than the name.
