I used to care. Some time ago I’d have my empathy saying “Those folks are hurting, I’m concerned about why”. Somewhere over the last few years, that’s “left the building”.
It’s like when you have a new kid, and the first year you are jumping up and just MUST find out why they are crying and “fix it”. Then, somewhere between 2 and 3 years old (parents will remember the “Terrible Twos” stories) there’s that point where they start doing Tantrum Display For Effect and your emotional engagement drops to near zero. Limited almost entirely to irritation at needing to choose between a good spanking, and just carting them off to their room and closing the door with them on the other side. (When “out”, one of us would just cart the kid out of the restaurant to The Car, where they could wail away without bothering anyone and without any positive reinforcement).
I’m in the Grumpy Parent mode now, with respect to DNC / Soros / GEB funded Street Theatre Tantrums by the Rage Machine Useful Idiots. I no longer care. They just need a good spanking and putting to bed.
Sadly, we’re the “Out Of Town” spouse and the one “at home” just wants to coddle them and complain on social media (metaphor for Soros’ Bought DAs doing “catch and release”, Cowed Police doing “watchful waiting” (for end of shift), and the Lying Propaganda Machine Media saying that a spanking would be child abuse…)
So the DNC / Soros / GEBs have tuned up their Crying Machine along with their Break & Burn Machine and turned them loose on the streets. I don’t care anymore. Don’t even watch any of it on the s”news”. My only concern about it is assuring my weaponry is in good condition and I’m alert to any road rats in front of me when driving. But then that’s now a habit anyway, what with 3 years or so of BLM Riots, Antifa Attacks on the innocent, and Asymmetric Legal Abuse by the fraudulent non-Justice Departments.
I know I’m on my own when out and about. I’m prepared for it, and have been long enough to no longer need to think about it. I’ve relocated to The Free State Of Florida, so I’m isolated from 99.99% of it anyway (presently residing in a tourist area where the only “action” is folks deciding what entertainment to drop $100 / head on today) I could have gotten a CCW on arrival, but haven’t even cared enough to do that. I’m in a county where the Sheriff has said he likes it when his citizens “blow you back out the door” if invading a home, so it isn’t like I’m all that likely to be bothered anyway.
But the surprise for me was that complete lack of ANY interest in the Street Riot Theatre anymore. Not even morbid curiosity. “Just Another un-Reality Show”. All fake rage and all idiots on parade. I’d rather watch Rediculousness for that kind of idiots on parade show. I already know the Street Theatre plot (the GEB Puppeteers haven’t changed it in years). The character development is near zero with a mix of Cry Actors, Rage Screamers, and a mob of mopey Placard Zombies staggering in the background. The Show is lacking any show quality anymore.
So I just “click on” when it shows up in the channel surfing. Rather like the 6-Jan Congressional Lie-Fest Show. I already know the plot and characters (the re-runs of the Impeachment Show Trial already burned any novelty in them) and the Fake Drama is just too painful to watch.
“New Evidence!” and “Subpoenaed Witnesses!!” Just ZZZzzzz fodder. They have no evidence as nothing happened ( I was there and saw nothing happen as the Trump Supporters were still listening to Trump Speak when the False Flag Entrapment Event was already underway 1.8 miles away. We were “exhorted” to “walk peacefully down Pennsylvania Avenue” and to “ask our Congress to do the right thing“. (Yeah, hard to get excited about “do the right thing” as cause for pre-election Impeachment III, The Rage Machine Rises!…) We stopped at the car about 300 yards from the Capital grounds and it was already on the radio as having been underway for a good long while. We were not at the rear of the crowd. The Trump Supporters were not near the Capitol when the FBI / Antifa et. al. launched their entrapment & false flag event. (No less than 3 of them tried to get me to go “into the building” or “up on the steps”, and moved on to try to entrap another guy when I said “No, that’s not a good idea.”)
So knowing all that, the Kangaroo Kourt Kongress Show is just stoopid and stays on the screen about 1/10 of a second as the “skip” button gets pressed. Ditto the BLM Bawlers and the Antifa Ass-Hats and the Kongress Klowns. Just no “there there” worth a moment’s thought. Metaphorically, I’m out of town and the D.A.-Spouse is not willing to spank, so “Oh, look at the time, got a big meeting tomorrow, gotta go dear…” and then watch the hockey game (so far Hockey has stuck to sports, not politics ;-) Sorry Tampa Bay lost, but happy the Colorado Avalanche coach is now the 1st Ever to get all three trophy’s from the 2 minor leagues and the Stanley Cup. Way to go Coach!)
So what is more interesting than the Rage Machine Show today? Going to the pool for an hour. Deciding what is for lunch. Looking at houses. Bought some dip to go with the chips. You know, really important stuff…
Maybe it’s a Florida Thing. There’s just a whole lot of “Don’t Give A Damn” and “Don’t bother me, I’m on vacation” going on here. I’m very very happy with that. You see someone in a store with a Covidian Mask on, and you think: “Oh, a tourist from Up North” or for employees “Oh, you work for one of those Asshole Companies, my condolences”.
IF I’m very lucky, I’ll get to The Boat tonight or tomorrow. Then my biggest concerns will be “Do we need to do a booze run for the boat?” and “Are we sleeping in, or going sailing tomorrow? Anyone check the weather?”
Pretty hard to give a damn about some Grass Fed Karens and Soy Boy Kens having a cry in the street in some Ass-Hat run DNC Ruined City “up north” given my priorities and choices down here in The Free State Of Florida.
With that, I gotta go. Have to pack, plan the run, and make sure I get pool time in before the afternoon rain shows up. Oh, and check the beer & wine inventory… Priorities, a man has got to know his priorities….
