I've got it narrowed down. I've done too much LSD, I've lost my mind,

Last edited Wed May 16, 2018, 03:42 AM - Edit history (1)

or I'm living in a goddamned George Orwell novel!

Every goddamned day, i wake up, light up a Marlboro ultra light and peruse the news. What......a fuckin trip man. Is this shit real? Can't be. But the walls don't seem to be breathing. I got no tracers. My face isn't melting in the mirror. What the fuck is going on, right?

Case in point. We have a presidunce who's base includes the fucking "moral majority" (and might I digress to add fuck them). And it's now common, pretty undisputed fact that he he was fucking a porn star while the birther FLOTUS was recovering from childbirth. In fact, $130 grand was paid out to keep her quiet. And where's the "moral majority"? Fucking crickets man. Fucking crickets. These are the same people that were soooooo offended that a Democratic President got him some head from an intern. Don't get me wrong. I'm not exactly cool with that... But I'm a realist. Hell, the French newspapers have been known to post pics of their President on a yacht with his mistress. That's what men in power do. They get some strange. Been that way since we learned to walk upright. Hopefully, the metoo movement might make some strides in changing that shit, but i doubt it. Testosterone is a powerful drug. Mark my words, if Trump is removed from office, Pence will be dipping his wick. Although, I'm inclined to believe it will be with a 20 something young man. Way to much homophobic smoke for there not to be a fire there.... But I digress. How in thee fuck are these people not outraged? Maybe I'm just tripping balls, but I don't have that twitchy feeling so i'm guessing not.

And then there's the almost weekly verbal fellating of Putin by Komrad Kombover. What the actual fuck? All I heard while we had a real leader was how soft he was on the Russians. Now we got a dude (i refuse to denigrate the office by referring to him as anything but dude) who refuses to enforce sanctions and who is constantly verbally licking the balls of his favorite oligarch. He might as well show up in the oval office when the Russians visit in a ball gag and a gimp suit. But hey, as long as he goes on twitter and announces,"NO one has been tougher on Russia than Donald J. Trump," his sycophants believe this shit. It's unbelievable! I'm looking for the eye in George Harrison's hand to blink (20 points if you get the reference). Ain't happening. Okay. Fine. I'm not tripping.

This motherfucker is ass deep in emoluments clause violations (a mouthful, but I'm a liberal, so i actually know what it means unlike my knuckle dragging, FOX news watching peers). But what do I hear daily? Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton, Hillary fucking Clinton. And the Clinton foundation. Did our allies and enemies donate to that motherfucker. Yes. Were the Clinton's raking in the cash from it? Fuck no. A resounding, unapologetic, screaming from the goddamned rooftops FUCK NO! It's a triple A rated charity. Let me repeat that shit. A TRIPLE A RATED CHARITY. Once more for effect, yeah? A TRIPLE A RATED FUCKING CHARITY. Meanwhile, the Trump foundation has been shut down for fraud, he's bilking the taxpayers millions of dollars every time he goes to Tack-istan (otherwise known as Mar A Lago) by charging the taxpayer for rooms for the secret service, meals, even fucking greens fees and golf cart rental. And this is the asshole who had soooo much more stamina than Hillary. What the fuck do you need a golf cart for? In fact, he was the healthiest person to ever run for President. And then we find out that was written not by his doctor but dictated to his doctor by himself, Jesusfuckingchrist. And while I'm on the subject, didn't Obama golf too much? Didn't the Archie Bunker Billionaire declare on twitter that if he was President, he wouldn't have time to golf? Because he'd be too busy doing the peoples' business. Yeah. Okay. Well, I'm not hearing voices. And I'm not drooling. I don't seem to be without my mental faculties, obscenities aside.

And then I wonder if in fact, I'm living in a George Orwell novel. I mean, really that's the only other explanation there could be. The GOP, who insisted that no President is above the law when Clinton was getting his rocks off (as if I give two shits. See paragraph 2), is now tripping over each other to commit obstruction of justice to show fealty to a person (and I use that term oh so fucking lightly) that had he not been born into money, would make a living mopping out the stalls at the adult bookstore. Seriously. Un-fucking-believable. And if that's not enough, these "law-and-order" motherfuckers are actually going after the FBI to protect the aforementioned jism-mopper. The conspiracy theories that are borne to protect this asshole would normally get you locked up and injected with enough lithium to produce a worldwide battery shortage. But not today! Not fucking today. Anything. Fucking anything that can explain away every hypocrisy, corrupt act, or moral failure by this orange douche bag is not only accepted, but embraced! Even if you'd have to huff gasoline for twenty years to be mentally "fit" enough to accept it. It's all good now.

I guess that's it then. We're all living in a George Orwell novel. Up is down. Ignorance is strength. Black is white. Would somebody do me a favor and turn the fucking page?

Last few trips I had weren't great. Not bad, per se. But second to last had to much strychnine. Spent most of the trip on the toilet with stomach cramps. Thank god there was cool wallpaper. And the last I just never got off... Been years since. Pretty much gave up and just try to score mushrooms when the mood takes me.

I wouldn't be the first to think that the pharma-induced drug overdoses aren't part of a scheme to weed out the lesser people.

The russians have long experimented with fentanyl and even more powerful derivatives. Of course vodka was a poison of choice but it took years to kill.

I'm of mixed feeling on that. Yes I'd have preferred Hill, but at the same time, i feel as if this last election put nitrous oxide behind the pendulum swing. Dont't get me wrong, I want this fucker out asap. But would we be seeing the blue wave we're anticipating now if it had gone the other way? Would we have thousands of females running for office? Just trying to see a silver lining.

38. I agree with you Chief

Now I could only read the first half of your post. With me being legally blind and all it gets difficult after awhile. These Moral Majority jerks have a double standard. From what I have seen the last forty years has been one long tirade of their diatribe. They get moral on Democrats but when Repukelican do something they look the other way. I see it time and time again. I am really sick of it.

The one weapon I got against this is my vote this November. The rest of the stuff between now and then will give me an ulcer.

41. At least I know you really did acid.

You accurately describe the intense effects, unlike poseurs who misunderstand the meaning of halucination.

I used to sell it in my youth. Every couple months my friends and I made the trek across state to Ann Arbor where we scored the best from a kid with a really weird name. Blue Owsley, Sunshine, Windowpane, and even nostalgic Sugar Cubes once, we had the real stuff in those days before weak ass blotter became the norm (it's like a "body high" ). I finally had to quit when it seemed bad things would often happen while I was peaking on a double dose. Things like arriving at a gas station shooting, a night club raid by the Feds, and even a bloody riot once. I tried it one more time later, but the fact my life was more ponderable with a wife & children convinced me my astral elevations were a thing of my carefree years past.

Having said that, I often wonder as you do if I'm losing my mind or if we're living a new normal where the Bizzaro World abuts neatly the realities I once knew. Old friends who protested along side me now cheering war, demanding the exodus of all people of color, and encouraging Right To Work laws makes me question why I haven't changed along with them. The fact that they insist I changed and not them perplexes me to no end. Maybe I did too much.

The Beatles never warned us of this future.

we'd be if Trump had done ANY.

But LSD has brought so many humans to consciousness, including me, that I find it un-fucking believable that we now suffer from all the law and order motherfuckers who didn't.

And yeah, we might be living in a George Orwell novel, but I will fucking never believe there's ever enough MORAL acceptance to embrace what is wrong about corporate values over human values. There are too many grounded humane globalists who won't let that happen. Chomsky doesn't agree with me.

I feel you. But I still think there's plenty of reality left to rewrite the ending.

Thanks for your post.

Have been wondering for some time when it would cross the threshold and the repukes would speak out. But now it's crystal clear there is no threshold - they're all in, regardless of how corrupt and incompetent the presidunce. Who'd have guessed this is how our country would go down the tubes? For that's exactly what is happening. Might continue to be a slow motion trainwreck for a while, but we're in the beginning of the end of this country as an open, quasi-free republic.
