The Apathy Party

I really, really just don’t care anymore. The world isn’t going to hell in a handbasket, it’s already there, burning. It becomes an uphill battle just to think that there’s any way at all to turn things around that I am past the point of worrying about it, and just want it to get over with it. Liberals, what’s the point of voting for a Democrat when he’s just going to go and get us involved in more wars in the Middle East for the same justification a “Cowboy Republican” did? Conservatives, what’s the point of voting for the latest Republican favorite when he’s just as anti-gun as any ultra-left Democrat? The news has become such an exercise in iterative finger pointing, the best evidence I can think of as to why the media institutions are failing is that the country hasn’t torn itself apart yet.

So excuse me while I don’t post a whole lot of substance over here. I’m busy trying to work as little as my boss will let me get away with and goofing off the rest of the time. If that lowers your opinion of me, well…

…why the hell do you think I care?

    You… need to read through 2 Kings again.

    I’m not saying things are better than they look, just that you might get some encouragement.

    oy gevault!
    my opinion of you has plummeted. ;)
    You, young skunk trapper,
    are a terrible liar.
    Don’t care. pshaww!
    I think a good bender to purge the frustration will fix you right up…just as soon as you get over the over-hang.
    Might throw in a little recoil therapy as well.
    you’ll be right as rain in no time.

      This may be good advice. I’ve found that “Screw it!” *dakadakadaka* can be very cathartic, and on more than one occasion has actually provided me with exactly what I needed to fix my problems.

      (me: *running out of time* “THAT’S IT! EVERYONE DIES! *attacks wantonly* *destroys something I didn’t know was destructible* *gains 15 extra seconds on the clock* “OH HEY!” *wins!*
      roommate: *laughing out loud*)
