Wednesday: The Dollar Store is selling STUPID
Have you ever shopped at a Dollar Store ? They are located all over Montreal. There is one around the corner from home, another in the mall up the street, and what ever neighborhood you are in, it is a forgone conclusion, that YES, there will be a Dollar Store in your neighborhood.
Now, If you are familiar with a Dollar Store, most everything in the store costs a Dollar. Except those items with Two Dollar Stickers on them.
But let’s go with the Dollar, its cheaper.
I have an observation to make …
They are selling STUPID at the Dollar Store. And if we are honest, STUPID rules the day, and it’s all over the web. It makes the News, It makes You Tube, and it makes the National News at night.
I don’t know about you but, Stupid is all over the place. Especially if you live in the United States, and you are stuck watching the Greek Tragedy, that is the U.S. Government and its STUPID leader … (Read: He who should not be named).
The RICH want to get richer, off the backs, health and well being of those who are NOT RICH. We’ll give tax breaks to the rich and jam a Healthcare Bill through that takes millions of people OFF healthcare, just for shits and giggles.
I watched a You Tube video today about a young couple, expecting a baby. They have a channel they wanted to PIMP OUT and get more views. The boyfriend grabbed an encyclopedia and she grabbed the most powerful semi automatic hand gun that is on the market. A .50-calibre Desert Eagle handgun
He believed that the encyclopedia would STOP that Semi Automatic Bullet from tearing apart the book he was holding.
From One Foot away, she fired said gun, the bullet went into motion, traveled through the book, and killed him. She is facing charges of second degree manslaughter.
If you have a Twitter Account, Face Book, Snap Chat, or any other Social Media Account, it is probably true that at least one person, or maybe more, has Stupid as their Default mode of communication.
This past weekend. I went on a HUGE un-follow spree. I culled my Face Book, and destroyed my Twitter page. Because let’s face it …
Social Media = STOOPID !!!
It just astounds me the level of Stupid that is playing out today. I think people have just lost their frigging minds.
I’ve always been told that I should engage my brain before I open my mouth. And as a writer, we are supposed to TASTE our words before we spit them out.
And finally, if you don’t have something NICE to say, Come sit by me …
10 points for the reference …
Better not to say anything at all, if you have nothing nice to say.
The U.S. President watches Fox News. And he Tweets at 5 o’clock in the morning.
You’d of thought with Melania and Baron residing within the walls of the White House, that the President would mellow and calm down. I at least offered that observation on the day they moved into said house.
Stupid still exists.
I am an 80’s kid. I had a car. I had a dial phone in my bedroom. We had a dial phone in the kitchen. And a cordless phone in the family room.
If we wanted to talk, we’d get on the phone. For me, if I wanted to talk, I visited my friends houses and did things outside.
WITHOUT the addiction of a Smart Phone.
Even if they did exist back then, I’m sure we would have stuck with the old faithful getting together at a pizza resto or other food establishment, because of the resident PIN BALL or PAC MAN or ASTEROIDS game.
There is a PAC MAN game in the Forum, right up the street. You can play for a quarter.
Stupid is as Stupid does.
Right now, there is too much stupid in the world.
And we need to call it out and take stupid out of the conversation, before more stupid does any more damage to the already stupid shit that had transpired recently.
