I hope it ain't too late.

So Monday (8/2) was my birthday. It was alright. My birthday doesn't have nearly the bang that it used to have, in terms of significance for me. I used to want to party til the sun came up and I would party for days in celebration of the one day that I could call my day. Over the last few years however my attitude has changed drastically, partly because I'm married now and who wants to party with their wife? I kid, I kid...uh not really. Also as I get older and I listen to the talking heads on the idiot box I become more and more depressed. Example one, the jerk-offs who oppose a mosque being built near the hole that used to be the WTC, First of all the site is a few blocks away from the debacle that they still haven't built. Secondly, (actually first of all I just numbered it wrong) these folks have been there for almost thirty years!! Well before these ass-holes packed up their cars and moved to NYC and started to make it suck for everybody. Apparently the argument is that it is a divisive issue and would further open wounds suffered from the tragedy of 9/11.
To that, I would say, why aren't those people angry at the city, state and the Bush White House for not having something built in place of the Twin Towers already?

Which is more of an insult to the nation? The fact that admittedly welcomed neighbors, who have been there longer than some of the residents want to add onto their mosque?
To that I can only say that as a witness to what happened that day I do not take anyone's pain lightly, I embraced total strangers that day and felt their pain, fear and anxiety. However those that oppose this mosque being built, are the ones causing the divisiveness and rubbing the salt in the wounds by prying into an issue that truly only concerns the residents in the area and NY'ers.
Now I don't know when Mrs. Moose killa jumped on this issue but since when did she give a flying fuck about us liberal media lovin' elitists? It seems to me that she, like many other pundits who love to hear themselves speak will use any issue at all to throw shit at the fan and watch it fly and hit everybody.
She is very chimp like in her ability to mimic and parrot and entertain with out really knowing people. I have a new theory by the way about why Alaska and her part of it specifically had the highest concentration of meth labs in the country...she was getting a cut!!! How else do you explain where the money comes from? Not to mention her sick human-less politics. I'm so tired..and scared. Big business backs all these jackwads. They are "THEM" and believe me, it is, us versus "THEM". Those of us who work for a living versus those of "THEM" who steal for a living because they're stealing from us!!!
Well dammit, get your hand out of my pocket!!!

The reason the priorities of The Supreme Court, The Senate, Congress and the Mayor are skewed to benefit big business and not the workers is because THEY ARE big business!!! But you twinkie heads voted Bloomberg into office...twice...and then you let him run for a third term...which he fucking opposed!! Sorry...sorry...I just get a little riled up at what appears to be a less than a give a shit attitude we all have these days. I guess I can only hope that it ain't too late, that perhaps my little boy grows into manhood during the greatest time in humanity. The time when we achieved a great evolution of the mind and spirit and ridiculed *"the time of The Daft" I have even written it in the past tense because I have so much faith and trust in you all that it will will happen so assuredly that it has already happened....
pffft!!!! Yeah right! My son will probably grow into manhood during more idiocy, more derision, more hypocrisy and ignolerance..(which I just made up and is a combo of the words ignorance and intolerance) and the fact that you probably think I just made up a cool new Ebonics word is exactly yih8uuu...

Peace, keep spreadin' that love

So disappointed in you.

(Written on June 16th)
Got a check today for a gig that I did on the 26th of May. I had to go get the check from the office of the catering company that I did the gig for. The fact that I had to wait this long to get it isn't what bothers me. What bothers me is the fact that they lied to me about the check "being in the mail", when clearly someone either forgot to drop it in the mailbox or just didn't want to drop it in the mailbox. But they could have said that to me and just been honest. Why is it that when I spoke to these lying b!^(#@$ they told me on Thursday that I should wait another day and that the check should arrive by then. When Saturday came and went I couldn't wait to scream on somebody at the office but I resisted...besides, there was nobody at the office also for the sake of peace in my own household, my wife and I are expecting so the less stress the better.
Monday was a busy day for me, I had to teach a barista basics class and then there was the committee meeting so there was enough to keep my mind off strangling one of these beyatches, any one of them because I still don't know who it was that actually lied to me on the phone. Tuesday was also busy, the meeting with the councilwoman was the topper of a busy day and it went well, so thoughts of bursting into the catering company office and breaking my foot off in an ass, at the ankle dissolved. Which brings us to today. Again a surprisingly busy day for a n!&&@ with no job but busy indeed and I am doing good work, so perhaps my dream of becoming a misanthropic philanthropist are coming to fruition...aah, they are. Excuse me, I went away for a second. Allow me to get back on track by taking a small detour, the "scenic route" if you will. Here we go.
While I rode the train on my way uptown I took the 2 to the shuttle then the shuttle to the 6.
I noticed a man walking rather quickly, I couldn't help but notice him because he practically knocked me down, I, as usual, stage whispered the word "Jackass" and that made me think of how much I am beginning to strongly dislike my hometown. What made it worse was seeing this industrial sized douche get his perv on...clearing my throat...moving on, I began my ascent into the city streets, with a revelation. I couldn't say a word to these women about how absolutely ticked off I was at the fact that I had to come into the office to get this check. This check that I was told was going to be mailed last Wednesday afternoon. A check that should have been mailed on the 28th of May!!! I could not say a word because if I began to do that, I feared that everything that had ticked me off during this week would come out, that I would say things that I would regret and possibly end up in silver imagine how hard it was for me to not explode when I saw that someone had removed the stamp?!!!!
I left the office as soon as I saw the traces of the stamp...I left immediately, thankfully the elevator was still on the floor because I was close, so very close to going back inside the office..what could have happened...thankfully we'll never know.
Why does it have to come to this? Why can't businesses treat the employees with respect? How can a man's life be in the hands of people who so obviously don't care how their decisions affect others. How come we haven't learned this yet? The concept of spreading good vibes. Not just to yourself or the people that you care about but to all of us. Why be a douche bag, why be agnorant, which a combination of arrogant and ignorant. Don't take pride in being wrong. Don't be proud to be a f@%ing oblivious to others around you moron. It's not right. And it's not American either. You might think it is but it ain't. So what if we have the highest rate of obesity in the world. Not to mention education...absolutely do not mention education, seriously don't mention education. No child left behind...nah, let's just pass them. Never mind.
In the book I talk about "the spiritual evolution of humanity" because there seems to be some kind of devolution taking place and I'm not feeling it at all.
People suck. More and more.
It's not just government, as much as it is to blame, it is not the totality of the problem...we are. Is it me or are there more out of towners moving here in droves? Newby, hipster college kids and princesses. The type to tell you how to live in New York even though you're born and raised here and they just moved here from Connecticut. The type to walk with their heads down, texting, while walking down the street against the flow of pedestrian traffic, then get an attitude when you yell "Boo!" What? We're supposed to move out of your way all the time? No. Not gonna happen. You will learn. Oh you gon' learn.
I should not have to deal with this, none of us should have to deal with this but we do. Well I'm not going to take it anymore. Speaking my mind is just the first step. Soon I will drop the seed of common sense and it will grow and you will soon see the light and the err of your ways. Dumb stuff will never go unchecked and unremedied. Because if we continue to let companies and talentless, trustafarian, spoiled mindless, mindless pricks and princesses treat us like shite, like we don't even exist other than to move out of the way, then it will continue with unlimited degradation. Can we stand that?
Some of you might disagree which is absolutely your prerogative, you have every right to your opinion as do I and since I'm the one writing then go f%$#---ondle your self. Look I am by far no good Samaritan but this idea that has prevailed for quite sometime that we should just mind our business and look the other way has got to stop. I am not suggesting that we become a bunch of snitches and tattle tells (is that even the right expression?) but when one of us is doing something really annoying and or negatively dumb and harmful shit to someone else and or that persons psyche, I feel we have the right to speak on that...immediately. And from now on I am...I WILL. The thing is and I know this is true, some one will inevitably look at me as if I am the douche for mentioning their asshead behavior. Am I alone here? It definitely feels like I am. And the fact that the rest of you pretend not to notice makes me intensely ill and hurt inside, perhaps it is a reverse psychological defense mechanism but this is yih8uuu.

keep spreadin that love
