Yesterday was a bad day. Lots of difficult things happened at work. Nothing so much bad, just tough. It carried on through today too. Just customers pecking us to death.
But back to yesterday. One of my best friends told me that his elementary school aged son asked him, are Randy Rhodes and Ozzy Osborne still friends?* Oh man, what a kick in the parenting teeth!
Just bad stuff all around. Let’s see, what other bad stuff happened?
Oh yeah, the fascist posing as the President of the United States of America stood before the entire world and said that henceforth the USA cares more about the fossil fuel industry’s profit margin THAN THE ENTIRE PLANET EARTH.
Clean air? Nope, fuck that we want more oil. Clean water? Fuck that, we want more coal. CO2 in the atmosphere? Fuck that, drill baby, drill (to quote another right wing shit for brains).
My first thought when I heard this idiocy was that the states should all sign the Paris Climate Agreement on their own. If the federal government won’t do the right thing then forget them, let the states do it. Wouldn’t you know it, today a bunch of state Governors are talking about doing exactly that. Charlie Baker, I’m looking at you. Do the right thing. Don’t be a Vichy collaborator. I don’t care which party you belong to, don’t be a friggin’ fascist piece of trash. Do the right thing.
Now a full day later the thought going through my anti-fascist head is that I seriously want to buy an electric car and put solar panels on my roof.
*Randy Rhodes died in a plane crash in 1982 at the ripe old age of 25. Are Randy and Ozzy still friends? No, because Randy died 35 years ago. Is that how you start a mortality talk with your kid? Urgh.
