We are up to September 25th, 2013, I had already been shown just how expendable I was to the people I did my volunteer work for, at the hand of the person whose strength I bolstered, my wife who became President of that little theater. I had spent a night on suicide watch, been arrested and thrown in jail for eight days and had my name blasted the country over for something that had YET to be proven I even did. With nowhere to go I was forced back into living with my wife. I was even prepared to give things ONE MORE CHANCE, but the law I laid down is that we be EQUAL henceforth. She would never admit to over reacting, even though she knew where I was, who I was with and that I was over fifty miles away from her by CHOICE, so there was no reason to get a damn DVP on my ass in the first place and even less reason to say that it was for MY OWN GOOD. It was around this time that I started half-joking that I was going to come out the other side of this whole ordeal a new Slim Shady. The following was written with a practical point of view in mind. There are roughly to date an estimated 137,838 educational facilities operating in the U.S. and I do not even know for certain if that number includes anything like vocational schools. Those numbers come from the National Center for Education Statistics. Now between 1980 and 2012 there had been roughly 137 INCIDENTS where there were fatal school shootings with a death toll equaling 297. That is what? I’m not good at math like one percent of the total number of facilities in the U.S. over a course of 32 years? I’m not down playing the tragedy when shit like this happens, I wished to God it didn’t, but to throw every little thing in the face of the people until, every Goddamn parent in America is afraid to send their kids to school, and the mere use of red flag words NOT to make a THREAT but a POINT aimed at getting people to take a little deeper look into a POSSIBLE root of the problem is FUCKING RIDICULOUS. The media would have us seeing threats around every corner, not because they GIVE A FUCK about protecting us through informing the people but rather in jarring us so we’ll watch even more of the shit they spew.
From Sept. 25th, 2013.
I love you mamma, but you and Mr. Rogers was wrong. When I was kid and I wanted to fly like Superman, you told me it was make believe. Now I’m 34 and I have learned a terrible truth. You should have told me that it was fiction, because make believe is what happens when people twist what you see in reality itself. Like when we turn the person who died in a car wreck on I-64 from being the person that would have been remembered fondly by 30 or 40 people as a friend or family member in to the person that is remembered by 5 to 10,000 readers/viewers as the poor bastard who got smeared on the side of the road on I-64. You know when it didn’t change a traffic law in that area,when it didn’t lead to stiffer penalties for reckless driving, and when it did nothing for the people working the graveyard shift who would pass that same area…oh 5 hours after it was already cleaned up. You know when there was nothing that could really constitute it as “News” everyone is destined to draw the short straw sooner or later that’s not news, that’s life, and no cause to be so disrespectful to the victims memory, just because you know deep down that you can’t stand up to the competition in places where really real shit happens. Well shit if that’s worth hearing about, how about the 20,000 plus cars that went by that same spot before, during and after the accident that absolutely nothing happened to? More good shit happens than anything that gets shoved in our faces under the guise of what really is, and we wonder why there are so many assholes in our society. You’ve had your turn blaming our movies,our music, our video games. Ever think that the real fucking problem is what you try to convince people is real?
You sound like a bitch.
…. 😀 Give me a second, I’m too busy laughing….. One more…. (Ahem) I’m sorry was it the words or the figures that was too damn big for you grasp. I say what I say, I even have a Picture cause I don’t give a fuck who knows it. Common sense dictates that I while I may sound like a bitch, the only one visible is the FACELESS LITTLE PUSSY SPRAYING SHIT AT RANDOM CAUSE YOU’RE BORED JACKIN OFF TO PICTURES OF GIRLS TOO HOT FOR YOU TO HANG WITH. If that tired ass “you sound like a bitch.” line is the best you can muster, suck it up princess, buy you another box of tissues, and go back to gawking at girls faking orgasms.
Bravo, Bravo! A most brilliant comeback Mr. Workman. I must say I have rather enjoyed your humorous, brash yet classy response. It is amusing to say the very least. While it is sad to think that it is the truth. One would believe that you (Shayne Workman) know this piece of sub-human slim, excuse me Jesse personally? I do feel for you if that is the case. I myself know of these ignorant species of people all to well. In closing I must say I have rather enjoyed your postings and I will be looking forward to more of your musings in the future, as well as your stories and humorous responses. Until next time my friend.
Thank you Ms. Absinthium, I just went through some of your posts on your blog. 😀 It seems we’re of the same rare breed of human, I appreciate that, it’s always good to know there are people out there that actually GET IT. I probably don’t know this Jesse, you see the HALF-JOKE I was referring to in this post, ended up not being a joke at all, most anyone who knows me, who would have pulled a stunt like this, has already had their asses handed to them in a manner that made them run back under their little rocks, that’s a future story itself, and a good one too I might add. People like Jesse here annoy the fuck out of me, I’m a philosopher THINK if you’re going to hate on me, it’ll earn them more respect and I might even learn something from it. In closing it seems we both have new fans of each others work. See ya around.
