Traffic as an indicator of fightening tidings.

Most of my friends find my driving antics to be hilarious bordering on insane. Yes; I am guilty of being the only competent fucking driver on Earth--while everybody else should be pulled out of their car, taken into a field and shot in the face with a high-caliber pistol. I'm not going to apologize for that, ladies.

What most people don't realize, mostly because I'm way too arrogant to explain my reasons for doing anything at all, is that I am barely upset about the specific nuances of your idiotic and erratic driving habits. I'm upset that you're not fucking enraged, running through the streets throwing garbage cans through windows and burning down businesses. You fucking should be, motherfuckers. YOU SHOULD BE. Let me tell you why; you smoothed-over former hunters turned helpless sheep. You idiot assholes: look at what you've been missing.

Traffic is bad, it causes many of you to sit in your car for an extra hour or two every day. That means you now have an average nine or ten hour work-day, which exacerbates the fact that you're OK with letting your wages remain flat for 40 years. That alone should fucking piss you off, but it apparently it does not. Traffic is also an indicator of another problem-cluster: wild pollution because ---> we give subsidies to failed automotive companies which gives us ---> a non-existant mass transit system so we drive to ---> suburbs basically invented by said manufacturers trying to milk every penny out of consumers causing --->consumption of oil that is rapidly disappearing (see: export land model if you feel like being scared) and creating wars in countries where nothing of any relevance has ever happened until oil leading to --->support for an apartheid state of Israel and --->hatred and attacks from a violent religion which we fight with --->wars that are designed to gather more oil but instead use FAR more oil and money but --->our military industrial complex would never allow us to stop fighting these wars until --->imperial overstretch, which happens as too many wars lead to failing infrastructure (schools, social programs, roads etc.) and lead to the downfall of Rome --->drains all the money out of public use so we have to work MORE and MORE just to drive on these awful congested roads which are falling apart due to lack of money.......

See? There is very little that each person on the road does as an individual which will upset me, but the complexity of failed systems which leads to me sitting in traffic is fucking infuriating. The previous paragraph doesn't even get into lobbying, corporations siphoning money out of the system, citizen apathy, the insanely failing economy et al. How 300 million people can be such fucking doe-eyed idiots is something which paralyzes me with confusion. I can't fathom the lack of understanding and concern which directly facilitates this system, yet if I leave the country in disgust I will have been relatively complicit.

I hope thinking about some of these things upsets you to the point of talking about it with your neighbors and co-workers....that'd be a fucking start. I can't believe we have squandered the most amazing form of government yet conceived so that we can sit in dank offices and carbon-spewing cars. You're all to blame, too.

This country is overflowing with cowards.
