Social Control…and a complete lack there-of

Okay, so the other day I ran across one of those guys who was holding forth about how Covid is a “hoax” and that masks “don’t do anything.” The mask mandates, themselves…he said…were just about “social control.”

Say what?

Dude, you're not worth the effort...

I was tempted to respond by saying something like, “Dude…you’re not rich, you’re not powerful, you’re not smart, you’re not charismatic…no one looks to you for advice, no one thinks you’re sexy…you already obediently vote the way that Fox News and rich people tell you to…

“You’re just a tubby, middle-aged guy in the suburbs with bad skin, an SUV, and an AR-15 that you don’t really know how to use and if you ever were in combat you’d be more likely to shoot yourself in the ass than the bad guys…


“Dude, face it…

“No one wants to control you.

“You’re not worth the effort.”

I thought about saying that. But, I didn’t.

He wouldn’t have believed me.

And if he did…well, I didn’t want to be responsible for that level of self-loathing.

Even if it was so very richly deserved.


Until next time…

Onward and Upward.
