The year 3000:

"But, Professor, why didn't they just inflict stricter gun laws in 2015 when all this was happening?"

"Well, Billy, the republican party had merged with the NRA, religious organizations, etc, and held a lot of power over the media. While they were certainly slowly losing that power thanks largely to the rise of the internet and global communication, they had many convinced that any attempt at regulating gun control was regulation over freedom itself."

"Yeah, but weren't those same people trying to regulate the freedoms of homosexuals?"

"Yes. Yes, they were. Double standards were rampant in this era. Gun lovers argued that guns were protected by the Constitution, and while that was correct, they may have become guilty of forgetting to compare the different eras and guns' roles in each."

"Wait? The Constitution? The Constitution says religion and government were to remain separate! How come they were mad about guns, but not mad that the Constitution had been ignored on the religion topic? How come they weren't mad that their party had aligned with one specific religion?"

"Now you're getting it. The Constitution angle was simply rhetoric designed to keep their followers obedient and afraid. By keeping them convinced their freedom was constantly under attack, the party leaders were able to create a false history where America had been created as a Christian country where Jesus was a white, American advocate for capitalism, wars and torture, where guns and gun sales were the only way toward a safer tomorrow, where beer was a great (profitable) American tradition while all other substances were dangerous drugs, and where the only real evils in the world were whatever the church said they were. Victimless crimes like blasphemy, homosexuality, or being of another religion really rubbed these people the wrong way, but being pro-torture was okay."

"...................."

"Is something wrong, Billy?"

"No, Professor. It's just that... I'm so glad that's over. Those people sound like major assholes."

When Donald Trump was called out for calling women pigs and slobs, and he grinned and said "Only Rosie O'Donnell!", the place erupted in laughter and applause. He dodged the question, dodged accountability, and gained even more momentum. Keep in mind, that's the self-proclaimed "values" party. Fox News is right to be worried. They're losing control, not just over Trump but over young people and even over their own usual die-hards. The GOP doesn't even know what it stands for anymore. They lost on the gay rights front. They lost on the healthcare front. They're going to keep losing and they don't know why. (Hint: Because they're on the wrong side of history). It's a confused machine that is completely at war with itself. Hard to play the "We're persecuted by bullies!" card while having a laugh alongside a billionaire at how fun it is to be a bully. Strange times. Young conservatives, the future is on you. Clean that mess up and build a stronger, more honest vessel. On the other side, young liberals are doubting Hillary's safe-bet rhetoric and making noise for Bernie instead. These are all growing pains, I think. We have to learn that we can't keep blaming politicians for everything. We can't keep creating anti-christs and saviors (Obama, Reagan, Bush, etc). We've got to hold ourselves accountable as voters, too. Facts matter. Other peoples' lives matter, even if you can't relate to them. Biases and favoritism toward certain groups, ethnicities, genders, religions, etc have no place in politics. They rot everything from within and corrupt it. I'm being super dramatic, probably. Just thinking too much as usual. I don't mind people disagreeing and I apologize if what I'm saying offends anyone. But yeah, I do hope our generation and the next ones do a better job at keeping this politics thing sane and dignified. If we learn from our mistakes, we can and will. Happy Saturday, nerds

If you've been told all muslims should be killed, but that we shouldn't judge all cops by the actions of a few, or that getting offended by a flag is ridiculous, but that anybody stomping on the United States flag should be kicked out of the country, and you haven't jumped off a bridge, yet, I salute you. You're not alone. We're in this together.

I drifted away from Game of Thrones after season 2 and just never came back. I meant to. It just didn't happen. I watched an episode for the first time with Jen a week or two ago (where Sansa gets... ya know) and I wasn't impressed. I thought it was boring and that it felt just like an episode of season 2 but with the pieces all rearranged. Same beats. I wasn't in a hurry, despite all the great stuff I'd heard about seasons 3 and 4. Now, though, you all have got my interest back. Ha, my best friend Clint George sent me a text - "They finally got the Walkers, dude." Everyone's saying the latest episode is one of the best things ever on TV. Damn TV shows for this, ha. Long stretches of talking and stalling, complimented by occasional beats of greatness (I also understand why they have to do this). My interest is rekindled. Eager to get back into it.

If you make it through today without antagonizing others, without telling people who don't love God to "get the hell out", and without blowing your hand off or scaring pets or veterans, then you're cool by me. The rest is fair game. Keep it kind and keep it safe. Happy 4th, amigos.

I refuse to watch any movies that are just propaganda designed to make me see something from a different point of view, possibly admit I was wrong, or care more about something or someone. Not no way, not no how! Ya ain't gettin' me, liberals!

People who say you should leave the country if you don't like the way things work around here should stand up, walk toward a mirror, stare at their reflection, and say it again and again and again until they finally understand how full of shit they are.
