Let me preface this list by saying that I am a glass half-full type of person. I’m not Lewis Black, but the comedy legend that has made a career out of rants that are so vibrant and beautiful that they’re almost soliloquies. Nope, I’m just your run-of-the-mill happy guy that happens to think that people, specifically Americans suck right now.

These are the most glaring issues as of this morning. I’ve only had one cup of coffee so far, so this could get ugly. Hold on to your hats.

  • There’s strength in mobs — I’m not even specifically talking about the actual mobs that stormed the Capitol on January 6th. From soccer moms to militias, everyone has backup these days. People feel such a need to belong that it only takes a thread of commonality and it’s time to break out the pitchforks!
  • Follow the leader is the new Russian Roulette — The infamous game that involves putting one bullet and spinning the chamber had to originate in such an unforgiving place like Russia, right? Jamaica Roulette sounds like a great party game! But I digress. The idea that you don’t have to be a leader anymore to amass millions of followers scares the shit out of me! You just need a killer body or the right last name. See Kylie Jenner.
