So, I think I’ve finally figured out why I’ve been absent of late. It took Kevin Baker’s “Last Uberpost” for me to figure it out.
But first, a little side step:
Near the end of the Avenger’s movie, Bruce Banner quickly explains how he found he could control his alter-ego. Basically, he stays angry all the time so that when the anger arrives he has some control over the change.
Alternately, I get pissed off every day, and therefore can’t get pissed off enough to write anything.
I’m regularly in a constant state of irk, so much so that when I see a headline like “Federal Judge lowers the boom on Department of Justice after ‘Bad Faith’ misrepresentations” on my lunch at work, I’ll save it on my tablet, but by the time I get home, I’ve seen a different headline of “State Department misleads Congress on Extent of Anti-Israel bias at United Nations” and now I’m doubly pissed off. Then, when I’m looking these two headlines up, I’ll find one where Candidate Sanders says something completely nonsensical in the economic spectrum (this is a daily happening), and that’s it.
I’m done for the day. I’m seeing the RCOB and my brain just wants to type curses. And I’m pretty sure you don’t need that. Partly because I believe most of you are already seeing the RCOB yourselves and I don’t want to be the one that helps push you over the edge, and partly because I don’t like spreading bad news.
Sorry, y’all. But I’m contemplating turning off the lights here. The optimist in me says to keep them on. But, damn he is being beaten over the head daily. Like Kevin, I may just start posting cat memes. And music.
Stay tuned for a bit. I’m trying to arm the optimist with at least a bat or something.
