Dystopia

So a bunch of gun toting idiots stormed the Capitol building in MI today. Maybe it was peaceful, but the state senators didn’t feel that way.

It doesn’t really help that our fearless leader, the Mango Mussolini, has encouraged it with his tweet about liberating states with a Democratic governor.

If you don’t like what’s being done, put down the frelling gun and vote. If you’re outnumbered, deal with it.

Just because some idiot’s wet dream idea of the end of the world involves shooting their neighbor does not make it legal or right. They should be frelling arrested. What they did was legal, but was morally wrong.

What’s worse, it’s all white guys who are doing this crap. The ones having the most health problems with this virus have a darker skin pigment. They’re the ones who will suffer and die just because people want pedicures and haircuts.

Then I see an even stupider post on Facebook about how the ‘blue’ states shouldn’t get more money just because they don’t know how to budget. I had to snooze that person because I almost started to comment. Most of the states needing help right now are ones with a higher population, that were harder hit by the virus. That the federal government made bid against each other for PPE and ventilators.

Most red states take more than they pay in taxes, and most blue states give more than they take. Oklahoma has only had a balanced budget because they’ve slashed school teachers salaries and all things they deem nonessential – like public television and charities. So much for a Christian state.

That’s just a generalization, but look at this chart and tell me what’s wrong with this picture.

Anyway, I’m done for the night. It’s been a long week, and I have 1 more day of work to get through.

Laterness and g’nite

**Update: After reading more this morning, the situation in Michigan is more nuanced than I realized last night. Does that mean they were correct in storming the capitol with guns? Not really, no. However, if the partisan politics of the state senate and the governor really needs to go by the wayside. It’s ridiculous that they weren’t able to work some sort of deal.

I’ve gotten very fed up with so many of these that don’t think they should compromise. That’s the point of politics. Find mutual ground so that though everyone doesn’t get everything they want, they can all be happy that they got part of it. This whole screw the other guy (and I see a lot of it on Facebook) is just another example of how we’re slipping into dystopia. Which is discouraging, considering a lot of the ones saying it are also saying they’re Christian.
