No, coronavirus wasn’t enough, now we have a full-blown race riot quickly trying to turn into a race war. You don’t know this, but the national guard is in my city. Cops are tear gassing people after making sure they have nowhere to go. They’re shooting rubber bullets, they have sonic cannons which frankly is pure BULLSHIT.
PEOPLE DON’T EVEN HAVE A GOOD IDEA ABOUT WHAT SONIC CANNONS DO TO VICTIMS and they’re using them here! On citizens who are just walking around. I mean, I know the people in my city, sometimes we’re…infuriating, but here’s the thing, we’re a lot of talk. And police, full blown police, should be trained not to fucking respond to school yard taunts. MY 7 YEAR-OLD BROTHER handles insults better than them! If my brother was insulted and started pummeling the kid in a school yard brawl he’d have been fucking expelled. But our solution here is to the give them more goddamn weapons?!
I mean, that certainly couldn’t go wrong. Not with the white nationalists roaming the streets with their AR-47’s shouting the n-word and homophobic slurs while the police don’t tear gas them!
To the few of you who read this and are like, “hey, this was a fun story about space people and a grouchy girl, and an alien, why is she talking politics?”
Well, have you listened to the fucking story? At it’s core, it’s a story about politics and how to live with a system that wasn’t designed for you. I love politics, I just don’t want to be fucking arrested because I decided to sit on my own damn porch after 6pm.
Anyway, the issue this episode was obviously focusing. My 5 second attention span, (which I can work), has become a 3 second attention span (which I cannot). I can’t tell you how many rabbit holes I ended up falling down just because I opened my computer. This shit is stressful, thank god I wrote this whole thing out before hand.
I anticipate my next problem will be the minor explosions and the louder airplanes/helicopters my mic will pick up tonight as I apparently live in a goddamn war zone.
