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

Last edited Wed May 16, 2018, 04:42 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?

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.

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.

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.

At my age I often get confused because I misunderheard someone, for example.

That's one funny fucking rant. Nowadays, we need our fury to be tempered with humor, or we're just not going to make it.

"jism-mopper" is going to enter the lexicon of derogatory humor, mark my words.

Well done, my friend. Well done.

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.

Am with ya 100%.

If this is reality, I want out.

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.

I’ve screamed and growled and snarled this same stuff for - what has it been? Almost THREE years, dating from the time the Orange Madness rode down that escalator.

One would think that what’s going on now is hallucination material but it’s too damn real.

I wind up every doggone day bewildered, thinking “this CAN’T be happening!” Wish I were merely hallucinating! This whole era is turning into a bad trip.

Not even cheap bad cuts

More like a scary twilight zone episode to me that can't be turned off

Edit to add I think this is the GH Avedon you referenced posted for others here to see and it ain't about to wink or blink this is real times ahead of us . Let's hope it's more like his tune All things must pass and soon is better with me


Now the darkness only stays at night time
In the morning it will fade away
Daylight is good
At arriving at the right time
But it's not always going
To be this grey
All things must pass
All things must pass away
All things must pass
All things must pass away

I always enjoyed my LSD trips, but I'm more a mushroom guy these days. And frankly, now that cannabis is legal, I don't really feel the need to do any illicit substances any more. I would like to try peyote some day however.

a professor i know is retooling his research lab. i was there to relocate a control panel. I've known this man for 8 years. We've greeted each thousands of times and share a lot of chit chat. today he let me know what he really thinks.. free market forces, Obama, Obama that socialist, man's fall grace, Trumps legacy (wtf?) blah blah. this all took place in matter of minutes, with several uh huhs from me (I'm in shock at this point because he's getting wound up). a good person by most measure, educated to the max in his field yet he believes this shit? I hope the novel '2018' ends in a blue wave!!
