It’s fucking Friday!
This means that if I drink tonight it’s not really apart of my “problem” it’s part of my “solution” for surviving another boring week of days that are 24 hours and are just lame. How lame are Tuesdays? Right?! Fuck Tuesday. And Wednesday? Hump day? More like boring as fuck day. So, it’s Friday and I’ll have a scotch or 8 when I watch The Ultimate Fighter tonight. Wooo!
What else is going on?
Well, Destiny Newton’s man erupted on the Chicago Bears last night with the help of some of his friends like Clay Matthews, Charles Woodson, and Tramon Williams.
There’s also this thing going on in the Middle East where everyone is losing their fucking minds and attacking embassies for no fucking reason whatsoever. That’s happening. A fucking gang committing gang violence is a fucking gang. A bunch of young dudes with nothing else to do and access to weapons and no care about human life. That’s a gang. Try to philosophize the situation all you want, it’s a gang and gangs push violence as their agenda. Whether it is in the Southside of Chicago or the streets of Yemen – disaffected youth with guns and no future will lash out at anything. Fuck all of them.
Thankfully, I am thousands of miles away from that and it really doesn’t directly affect me and I’m sorry for those that it does. I wish people didn’t incite violence, but they do. It’s disgusting that there are people who specifically do that because that’s how they believe the world should be. They are horrible people. And with that, the people who then take that opportunity to do violence because they feel like doing it – those people are horrible and disgusting people as well.
I live just South of Asbury Park, New Jersey. The latest data I can find is from 2010. But in 2010, there were over 1100 violent crimes committed in Asbury Park. A thousand. That’s a potpourri of assaults, rapes, murders et cetera. That was an average year for Asbury Park over the past decade. Was it fueled by religion? Does it matter? What does it matter in the grand scheme of things what it is fueled by? People have access to weapons. People have little regard for others. People have nothing, but the violence they can commit on others. Looking at the Asbury numbers versus the national averages makes me absolutely sick. It’s disgusting that a town less than a mile from me is filled to the brim horribleness and at the same time – it’s a normal fucking town. It’s pretty normal all things considered.
Asbury is on the higher end of violent crime in New Jersey, but it’s not the worst. And the worst in New Jersey isn’t the worst in the US. And the worst in the US? I don’t know. Is it worse than places where what’s happening to these embassies are happening? Day in and day out, I would say yes. And at the same time, there are people there trying to live normal lives amongst this fucking filth. It’s filth who commit these crimes. It’s filth who continue to push others to commit others crimes in the future.
I wasn’t planning on writing any of that, but whatever.
It’s fucking bullshit what is going on over in the Middle East is happening. It’s fucking bullshit that there are on average well over 50 REPORTED rapes a year in the town next to me. On average, a rape a week? That’s fucking debilitating sad.
I watched this video yesterday and I have no idea what any of it means, but I found it fucking hysterical.
Sorry for bumming you out.
I hope you have a great weekend.
