Yep, it’s that simple and there are a variety of reasons for it. Hopefully this will be a short enough post. I’m not going to go into some conspiracy theory fuelled rant; I’m simply going to give you the facts as I see them and my reasons for this bleak statement.
Ok, firstly there’s the financial situation. A lot of greedy cunts took a lot of stupid gambles and, while they retain their opulent standards, we have to pick up the bill for their utter idiocy and greed. The reason this doesn’t change is not because we must rely on people to fix the economy but because we have to rely on the same thick, arse reaming, fucking morons who broke it in the first place. Look at it this way:
You bring your car to a mechanic, citing problems with the brakes.
The mechanic gives you back your car and tells you he’s not only fixed it but he has improved the whole braking system. To be sure of this, he passed it by his boss to quality check his work and he signed it off as fucking perfect and the mechanic got a big juicy raise and a bonus for a job well done.
Later that day, you are travelling right on the speed limit when a truck jack-knifes ahead of you. You have plenty of time to stop so you apply your new improved braking system but it fails utterly and you lose an arm and a leg in the resultant crash.
Do you go back to that mechanic and ask him to fix it again or do you report him, his boss and the entire company for criminal fucking negligence?
If we follow this analogy to its conclusion, the mechanic, his boss and his company get a cash injection from the government and you get to pay back investors who gambled on the competence of the company. You also get to pay for the truck you crashed into after you’ve cleaned up the mess from the wreckage.
Are we fucked? Are you with me yet?
So, ok, that’s nothing new. We all know we’re fucked financially. We all know we’ll continue to be fucked by our leaders. But we’re fucked in a whole different way too.
If some fucking nutjob Islamic fundamentalist wants to prove a point, he will normally blow up a lot of innocent people who he considers to be infidels. Yep, you guessed it, it’s us.
If some fucking nutjob, Christian fundamentalist wants to prove a point to Islamic fundamentalists, he blows up and shoots people who he considers responsible for inviting too many cultures, including Muslims, into the west. Yep, you guessed it, it’s us again!
We can’t fucking win!
