I’m not an asshole, but sometimes I can be. Don’t hate me for it… try, like me, to appreciate it. I think it’s just that sometimes I don’t suffer fools well.
As some of you know, I’ve admitted to sometimes having a somewhat ungainly habit of engaging folks who attack me (physically or ad hominem) on social media, with my own little brand of word–jujitsu… a sport which I have attained 33rd degree black belt (all without the help of the Freemason Brotherhood pulling me up by the magic word or making me suck on the Potentate’s hairpiece).
I’m good. BUT god, please… I am not bragging, jus’ sayin’.
Truth is, I’m sometimes embarrassed by it, as the nasty habit can find me sparring with people I might otherwise like and enjoy; and I’m egotistical enough to think it might be likewise. Well, I can dream. But, if not… then touché.
I selfishly believe that for the most part engagement in these insult-brawl-a-thons come as a result of someone else’s bad behavior and that I’m only righting the ship… albeit usually with a recognizable overcompensation tilt added for emphasis. I shrug that off to my hard wired ultra-competitive nature, which at my age is neither dormant, intelligent, or advisable. But, there it is.
So, if this blog is intended to offer astute psychological insight into the inner-workings of a brilliant mind like mine… with intentions of later being made into a major motion picture coming to a theater (of word-war) near you, then this stuff is REAL solid gold. But of course, its not any of that.
And so… posting these clever-spit-volleys from time-to-time might not be so instructive. Entertaining maybe? It emphasizes what NOT to say to uninformed bigots and trolls; that is unless you get off on imaginary crowds giving you imaginary high fives for your sarcastic wit bombs. Me do.
That said, I remain loyal to myself and have found no indictable offenses to charge myself with, either actuated or intended. And hey… always remember that regardless of what you’ve seen and heard, nobody in Washington, D.C. is politically biased, despite whatever diarrhea of the text message has spewed from their little Apple pie-hole.
Here’s a snippet from the last day or two…
