On april 2016 a columnist wrote Trump would win because he was a reality tv star and America has a fascination with realty tv. Well he was right. The roman empire self imploded after 276 years from drinking out of lead goblets. We dont have the goblets to blame. Maybe the mid terms will bring you some relief.

Once again a great invigorating controversial subject to debate. I like your spunk, even if you see it as survival driven. It smacks of past life karmic resolution. I have spent my whole life fighting authority. I cannot watcyh the news, even though I'm kind of crushing on Rachel Maddow. I told her every so often we need time away. This is one of those times and I feel badly, almost disloyal, deleting her shows without even peeking at them. I just can't do it. AndI will tell you getting drunk does seem like a great solution. But i'm saving my money, and my mind. My father who was an authoritarian who fit perfectly with my Karmic theme, was lawyer, (even better???) used to brag that he'dforgotten more than most people will ever learn. Well, Karmicly, due to drinking eternally, he forgot all HE'D ever learned. That more of a fairly permanent solution to these horrible times we are attempting to find ways surviving in. Well written.

    Thank you for your comments. Yeah, I was really just having a social time with an old friend of mine. He and I wrote a book together more than twenty-five years ago. It was both of our first long projects (And it was really, really long). I was showing him my shit on here and we were laughing and he wrote something and I wrote this. It was halftime. He and I were getting pretty drunk.

    So you two have stayed connected that long. That's great. What fun.

Lance is just another frustrated American guy trying to squeeze past all the daily bullshit in this world. It's a matter of being truly fed up. I know that feeling. Nobody seems to give a shit and nobody does anything about the shit that needs fixing ...badly. Then one day we will get up in the morning and hear that someone has gone off the deep end and blew away one of our so-called "leaders"

Good Luck with it all, I say. Here, I am putting the toilet seat down...you flush, okay. Bob

    I don't flush. I prefer to wallow in shit. Thanks.

Well, drunken writer, I can see that you want to justify using substances... of any type.. to deaden the perception that all is lost. As politically active, you understand that when you try to manage and organize people into any type of concerted effort, it mostly ends in chaos. I liken it to herding cats. When the cats are incited to energize, you never know what you will get or where they will go. Your rant/story was interesting.

    It really wasn't a pro drinking or drug use statement. It really was written drunk at halftime of a football game. I was drinking as I wrote it. A friend of mine, another writer, was inspiring me with long ago memories. He and I wrote an incredibly long and barely comprehensible novel together over a year and a half, from the end of high school through our first year in college (we went to different schools). That book has pretty much developed both his and my styles to today. So I wrote something more like I would have written when he and I were young.

The title got my attention and the admission " I'm pretty drunk right now, as I write this" locked it in. I have a glass in front of me myself, inspired in part by having spent the day in the emergency room with my mother - at least that's today's reason for drinking - like you, the total abandonment of ethics in favor of partisanship in Washington, is the reason there will always be a reason to drink. Thanks for sharing this one.

    Well you had a shit day, sorry. I was just sitting around with my friend and son watching football and drinking. It was a nothing day and I did not even care about the games. Is your mother okay?

    I'm too mean, ultimately, to have any success in comedy. Maybe at a roast?

I am laughing here because you are not alone. With the current state of affairs here in this country, I am sure many are over imbibing. I like your analogy of politics as a blood sport, so true.
