The Windy City and Assholes
Hey it's Monday "Yeah"! Anyways I don't know if anyone has been tracking or have heard anything about Chicago and it's new laws they passed or trying to pass but I have been listening long enough about it and I have a comment about this lil gem ready.... Here it goes. Ok the City of Chicago is passing some laws that seem weird to me here are some examples of these said laws. "No smoking in public places that children can be in" I'm assuming restaurants and the like. "No smoking in YOUR car if children are present". That's kinda a no brainier. "No eating duck and/or goose liver within the city limits". Now that one kinda made me chuckle but you know whatever. I mean what do you expect from a city that invented prohibition. I really don't think that fowl liver "Speakeasys" will start to "pop" up around the greater Chicago area but I'm just sayin'. And the peoples and MSMs reaction to this is that the local government is "parenting" it's citizens. AMERICA! HEY!..Listen you DO want the government to "parent" you! When a video game that comes out and it's the new "hotness" that's obviously full of violence and crime you don't take it from your kid and say "Damn I need to pay attention to what the hell my kids are buying/playing on this here idiot box". Oh no you blame the gamemaker and make the "Government" threaten gamemakers with fines and such then have the government make a rating system for such games. Which in turn gamemakers comply and then due to the rating system make even more violent adult games. Why because there rated "M" for mature. Or how about when children go on shooting spree killing a dozen kids then themselves. America blames the music they listened to and once again the video games that they played plus we blamed some comic books that were found at the houses. Then we ask for more bans and 18+ purchasing of explicit lyric music. And then our friend Michael Moore blames K-Mart for selling the bullets to the youngsters so they can kill other young people. That's right Michael the Columbine Trenchcoat Mafia walked up to the clerk at the outdoors section of K-mart and asked "Do you have any bullets that we can use for a High School shooting spree where planning?" And clerk answered "Why sure we've got a 2 for 1 sale going on for death and destruction". I got an idea how about we look into asking the parents how many times they asked there kids what the HELL there doing with this many guns or say "Hey your wearing really dark clothes and look scary are you ok?" and just get involved. Or here's another one ask the school why these two kids killed only the youngsters that were the "pricks" of school. I know that sounded harsh but it's the damn truth. The majority of the kids targeted where the ones that made these troubled youths life hell. And you don't think that school counselors/teachers know what the hell goes on in the halls and such. Of course they do but why bring in one of the popular rich kids and run the risk of pissing off there equally rich and "asshole" parents. "Fuck it" these counselors say "I get my summers off". America doesn't want to take responsibility for anything if it means that Americans have to look at themselves and say "Oh crap my bad ..I screwed up". We can't do that because it makes us feel weird inside and ...and ...makes us feel BAD! But take away my right to smoke and eat partially raw goose liver and it's "DAMN THE MAN!" "Whadda mean I can't smoke in my car with my six bastards in the car!....I mean I got the window cracked..Sheesh!" Look I don't give a monkeys uncle if you smoke it's not my thing but I got plenty of other things that can kill me as well so who am I to judge right. I dunno this rant kinda went "Dennis Leary" so with that I leave you with this wonderful little ditty from one of the best Irish poets and storytellers of our time. Enjoy your Monday people.
