Holy shit. You’re totally right; fixed it. Thanks for pointing that out.
Subconscious altintolerant bullshit biting me in the ass. Automatically put gun after don’t.
Hell of a comment. Write that shit up and publish on your own profile!
Fuck you. Beers. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think that was a main criteria to become precedent at some smoky point in my late childhood...
Personally, I would have had a beer with either Bush or Kerry.
The former to regale me with family lore about banking for the nazis, enabling the political existence of that fucking creature Nixon, covering up dad and grandpa’s lifelong covert CIA careers and the assassination of JFK, and what it was like to snort cocaine off hookers with thousand dollar bills instead of lose your legs to some spiked, vietcong bullshit in Nam.
The latter to fill in the Nam gaps left by the former. And blow my mind with eyewitness firsthand accounts of acid throes, fever dreams, the antiwar movement, and the counterculture.
And I don’t know how I feel about guns making us equal. I see what you’re saying. But I work hard to stay in shape and find that conceit of the firearm-leveled playing field deeply unsettling.
Fucking bullshit that unarmed I can’t do anything if some guy with a gun jeopardizes my family. Just because he’s strapped.
But then again, just because someone’s born big and violent also doesn’t seem fair. Ancient warfare was probably even more terrifying than today’s distant, impersonal combat because of that very fact.
Anyway, thanks for writing man:) Love your stuff.
