USA: That's just totally Fucked Up
God I hate when you just assume something will absolutely happen and it doesn't. Like when you assume events will go into your icalendar for the right date and time, and they don't. Or you assume the person with the most talent is going to win the talent show, and they don't. And also, when you assume that a nation of purportedly mostly sane people will absolutely prevent a giant fuck-knuckle from being appointed leader of the free world...and they don't. It just seems you can't rely on anything these days.
As much as the rest of the world guffaws about 'dumb Americans' (just as they sometimes wrongly view us as backward 'colonial' Australians), there have absolutely been some brilliant inventions, initiatives and talents to come out of the United States. The NASA and it's myriad of inventions, Silicone Valley and the amazing technology we enjoy today, Britney Spears. For every redneck crazy we laugh at on our TV screens, there genuinely are modern, independent, forward thinking individuals who contribute to global society in that country. Which just makes it all the more difficult to figure out WHAT. THE. FUCK. HAS. JUST. HAPPENED.
Now, I am not a political person, at all. But I don't consider this particular clusterfuck to be political really, rather more a terribly sad indictment on society, which I AM a little more interested in. It is simultaneously unbelievable and abhorrent to me, and I assume many other right minded individuals, that a country of people who believe themselves to be at the forefront of thinking and (ahem) culture have allowed, no ENABLED a person so clearly lacking in moral fibre, integrity, intelligence and aplomb to become the LEADER OF THE GOD DAMN FREE FUCKING WORLD!!!!!
This man hates "immigrants" though has married two of them, mocks and spurns disabled people - children included - (fab!) , uses his "status" as a reality TV "star" to "grab women by the pussy" (ugh, no thank you), wants to fuck his own daughter, and has shown no regard for the laws (tax breaks anyone?) for which he is now responsible. He takes pride in ripping people off, has lied about his own wealth (or lack thereof), cannot stay on message nor curb his own petty outbursts, and has not a single detail to give on any actual policy that I know of. Yet, again, LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD.
His "plan" is to "bring back jobs" - no info as to actually how as yet (surprise) - but it is unlikely Americans are going to be keen to either work for $1.50 a day, or pay 5 times the price for their consumables, so, er yeah. He has indicated he will arbitrarily deport an entire religion's worth of innocent people which, besides being extremist, is also just plain insane (not to mention unweildy!). And really, insanity is is at the heart of this whole sick outcome. It must have overcome the entire nation like some sort of terrible noxious gas and caused people, despite all evidence that a deranged hubris filled orangutang was posing as a candidate, to just go ahead and vote him in!
I can't help but think that in voting in this sick and scary joke of a human, the land of the free and the home of the brave have finally shot themselves in the foot.
Hopefully in 4 years time they can Make America Great Again, Again. FFS.
