And every time I sit down to post, I just feel the energy sucked out of me.
And I find gems like this, that make me think that this world (and this nation in particular) is going downhill and I feel entirely helpless to stop it.
(Before you tell me to become politically active, note that I barely have the energy to fix my own life, let alone the rest of the world... and that's assuming I even know what it means to "fix" things. Maybe this is already the best it can be, and the neocons are right, and we should just buck down and shoot everyone who disagrees with us.)
Yes, I know that is a totally stupid thing to get all bent out of shape about. But it symbolizes so much -- the fact that pleasure must be considered sinful, the fact that the stupid majority can impose their irrational fears and neuroses on others, and the fact that it shouldn't fucking matter, yet the effort and time and money is being spent BY OUR FUCKING GOVERNMENT to oppress minorities. God FUCKING damnit.
