DRUNKEN POST #16

No, I’m not writing any more of these than usual–it’s just that I don’t write anything in-between, since I’m busy with this online dating thing right now.  Got my first positive response though–will be interesting to see if it amounts to anything. 

Where in the hell is everyone?  Reminds me of that B.J. Thomas song:  “Where have the people gone?  Seems like there’s no one hangin’ on.  Look through the window, the houses are empty.  Hey, everybody’s out of town.  Seems like I’m the only one around.”

I think it’s because it’s finally fall–though you can’t tell in the daytime.  There are so many things to do, places to go once the summer heat and humidity let up–though it won’t be until late this month before the weather really gets nice.  It’s always been this way, along the upper Gulf Coast–though moreso now that global warming is increasing exponentially.

I can’t get Delbert on the phone.  Nor can I get Brandon, or his mom.  And it’s too late to call my parents–they don’t like to be called after 9 pm.  Besides, if they knew I’d been driving my dad’s truck drunk…Still, I’m a much safer driver drunk, or even high on caffeine than most other people in this nowhere town.  Because I pay attention.  I don’t even play the radio when I’m driving.  Pensacola drivers were already the worst in the nation when I moved here in 1998.  But since those fucking cellphones have been legalized, they’re unbelievable.  My parents urge me to get a cellphone, for emergencies.  No way!  I’m not going to become another one of those goddamned cellphone zombies!  The cellphone is possibly the most socially destructive invention in history.  And I refuse to have any part in it.

Even tonight, at dinner with the Singletons, one of our members was fooling with a smartphone game, or texting (I don’t know which) the whole time we waited for dinner.  He didn’t even say a goddamned thing to his girlfriend–just kept playing with that stupid piece of shit!  Drivers use them.  Pedestrians use them.  And I guarantee the usage of these evil devices is responsible for far more accidents than drunk driving or speeding! 

It’s so ironic–we have more methods of communication than ever, yet we communicate less than ever.  People talk or text on their cellphones/smartstupidphones while walking or driving or just standing around–ignoring those who are there, in person, right beside them!  Am I the only person who sees a problem here?

We have gotten along without cellphones/iphones/stupidphones for tens of thousands of years just fine–and we’ve always gotten help in emergencies.  The Internet is socially destructive enough–hey, I’m hooked on the Internet, I even spend more time on it than watching television.  We’ve got to draw a line somewhere–we need to draw it with the Internet (and that doesn’t include ipads and iphones either, we shouldn’t use the Internet except when using an actual computer).

SO IF YOU HAVE A FUCKING CELLPHONE, IPHONE, STUPIDPHONE, GET RID OF THE FUCKING THING!  ERASE EVERYTHING ON IT, AND TOSS IT IN A DUMPSTER–OR JUST TAKE A SLEDGEHAMMER TO IT!  THAT DEVICE IS A BALL AND CHAIN FOR YOU, AND A DANGEROUS, DESTRUCTIVE NUISANCE TO EVERYONE ELSE.  AND YOU DON’T NEED IT TO TAKE PICTURES–YOU CAN GET A FUCKING DIGITAL CAMERA FOR THAT.  THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR YOU TO USE A CELLPHONE, IPHONE, STUPIDPHONE–GET RID OF THE GODDAMNED THING!  HANG UP, AND DRIVE/WALK/TALK WITH THOSE RIGHT NEXT TO YOU!  OUR SOCIETY IS GOING TO HELL, AND THE USAGE OF THOSE EVIL DEVICES IS ONE OF THE REASONS!

The primary reason our society is falling apart is the loss of two absolutely necessary institutions for any civilization: family and community.  We don’t care about family anymore, and we don’t even know our neighbors anymore. 

I know the “world” is not going to end on December 21 of this year, but a part of me wishes it would.  There will be no Rapture, because there is no Christ–yet I can certainly understand why Christians hope and pray for it.   This really is the worst era in human history.  Sure, our ancestors had harder lives, as far as survival.  But they had family and they had community–and we no longer do.  Pardon my language, but this world really has never been as fucked-up as it is now!

And the United States–my country by chance, not choice–has been the leading fucker-upper of the rest of the world since 1917!  And it’s still the worst influence of any country in the world!

Even my foul language in this post is, paradoxically, an indicator of how fucked-up this country is!  Our ancestors didn’t use such foul language so often as we, because they had no fucking reason to!

And it doesn’t matter how you vote either–the only thing that can save this society is a major catastrophe that would bring us to our senses.
