So I guess I turned 21. In the words of my uncle, its just: “kinda one of those things you just have to show up for.” These wise words, coming from a coronel in the air force always rubbed off on me with a sense of bittersweet irony. The fact that he, and the NORAD base that he has most likely top secretly works for (on a pension of course) resides in Colorado has always intrigued me. It seems that such a military friendly state would not be the first one to legalize recreational cannabis.
The fact of the matter is I am drunk. And I plan on staying that way for a long time, or at least until someone cards me since I just recently lost my wallet with my id in it 2 days after my 21st birthday. I guess, even if one makes
drunkI guess the most valuable lesson I learned on my 21st birthday is that the House always wins. See I am fortunate enough to come from a middle class white family from the suburbs of Connecticut. Therefore when I turn 21, it is customary for my aging “parental units” to treat me to a night on the town at the local casino.
It was a plastic paradise erected on the meager land the white man allotted the original stewards of America after raping and purging their culture from the land they lived in relative harmony with.
If only the Columbian exchange had happened when either side of the world had matured a bit more. Instead of exchanging false ideologies, small pox, guns, gold and slaves perhaps they could have exchanged ideas.
In my humble opinion, the world is unbalanced because of this. The man with the gun (technology) has conquered the man in harmony with the animal hunted by it.
Just turn on the news for ONE DAY. All you see is crisis, a premeditated fašade promoted before your eyes that the world is about to end.
The sky is falling, or so the say, I read all about it in the ny. Times today.
And that’s how they keep u in a perpetual state of fear.
I reiterate I am extremely drunk,
But sometimes its better to dull your lense on the world then to see it clearly.
