Rollin' Like Sisyphus

All That’s Left

Posted in A Chronicle Of Decline by Huckleberry on August 11, 2015

I suppose this is a trend of people approaching near-panic about saving the city/state/country/world will grow only more frequent as the lug nuts come loose from the wheels of this dundle-cart to oblivion, one by one, everything inside gettin’ nice and wobbly.
It seems I’m going to have to keep saying it, then:
There is no saving it.
None.
It’s over.
It’s all over.
Your anger will not bring restitution; your compromise will not bring resolution; your votes will not bring restoration; the process will not bring you relief.
Dissent is only an act of defiance if it takes place outside of the system. Otherwise, it’s an ingredient for which the bakers have already accounted; it’s baked in and ready to be cooked out before the timer goes off.
The next election is meaningless. Your vote therein is impotent. The ship is taking on water, the crew is punching holes in the hull from the inside-out, the rudder fell off and the passengers are bickering over who the next captain should be. For all the points on the bridge’s compass, there’s but one direction, and the captain has nothing to do with it anymore.
Save the rage. Save the admonitions and recriminations. We had our chance for that decades ago when it might have mattered.
Let it sink.
Let it go.
Let this folly be our lesson to posterity.

    Oh, for what it is worth, absolutely!

    The thing is, when the Titanic (not cart) goes down, do you want a psychopath at the wheel (Biden and ilk), or do you want someone who actually will put women and children first, on the life boats? Someone who will even considering attempting to employ the lifeboats. Zero and company want all hands to go down, and passengers. Especially those white ones. Biden isn’t any different. Haters hate.

    Go ahead. Vote for Biden. Or, heck, push for another term for Zero. Go ahead. You will be a party to what happens from that. Which, as I have suggested, is why, if you must resist, than do so by not voting. Don’t even buy into it. Which is what I am going to do.

      That’s the punchline. They’re all psychopaths, indistinguishable from each other.
      Show me the one who’ll do that, instead of cut the lifeboats away out of spite or some misguided attempt to appear non-racist?
      Show me that man, so that I may actually consider casting a vote.
      And even if there were such a person, not one of the crew, nor most of the passengers, would heed any sensible orders given.

      Zero and company want all hands to go down, and passengers

      Yes.
      The twist comes when you realize they all belong to the same company.

      Vote for Biden

      Oh come now. We’ve been over this. I don’t vote, generally, for people. Not anymore.
      But finding the silver lining in the slim chance that the President Sheriff actually wins is worth more than you think.
      They call it gallows humor for a reason.

        Believe as you wish. But if what you are saying is correct, then involving yourself with it, at all, including voting, makes you a party to it. Here’s your sign.
