Journal Profane MuthaFucka's Journal: Time magazine 16

Time mag wrote that the '00's were the worst decade EVAR! I can't deny that, but they ain't seen nothing yet.

Folks, you are going to be in pain. Pain Pain Pain. How can I say it? You're going to be hurting.

I can see it, and so can most of you. Hell, I'll skin a kitten just for fun, but the pain you all are going to be in actually brings a tear to my eye.

You may as well get a head start on everyone else. Start thinking about what it really means to be an American. Start thinking about what it really means to be a human being. Start realizing that you have a choice. You can't be both.

We're going to discover that it's becoming physically impossible to be an American. The laws of thermodynamics prevent it. Or maybe it's karma. Or maybe we'll just be the first empire in history destroyed by stupidity.

So I would recommend that you choose to be a human being. Being an American isn't going to be very easy in the next decade.

Happy New Year, a little early.

  • Whew. That was great. Thanks for that.

    What you really need is a sense of perspective. Maybe an all expenses paid tour of Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Tibet, Somalia, Colombia, etc., etc.

    Ha. Ha. Gasp, gasp. Whew.

    • Did I say this would be painful for Somalians? No. It's pain for Americans.

      • How could the next decade be any worse? The last decade had 8 years of Bush/Cheney.

        Unless you think the whining will hurt even more.

        There, you would have me.

        • That was just the warmup.

          The next decade will require every American to first realize that the Empire is finished, making their own idea of what being an American entails completely contrary to reality.

          The second phase is that Americans will be required to invent a brand new idea of what it means to be American.

          This will be absolutely hilarious to watch, trust me.

          The third phase will be a collective shock as our complete lack of imagination is apparent.

          The fourth phase involves a lot of praying, tithing to
