no jubilations on my side
How I hate my internet.
There are no words to explain how truly deeply I loathe it sometimes.
No other words but Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s
“How do I loathe thee? Let me count the ways”
I loathe thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach…”
I loathe Egbert (my pc), I loathe my anti virus software, I loathe my mouse, I loathe my keyboard, I loathe my speakers which are so ancient they don’t even have an earphone socket…
I HATE them all.
And yet, the sadness, I cannot live without them.
I’m getting to the point where the only thing I can truly live without is my country.
I’ve mentioned before somewhere that not having cable is a blessing in some ways. This opinion of mine has gotten stronger nowadays because it gives me and my fiancé something to talk about. He tells me all the shenanigans of the press and politicians for the day and I laugh at them. It sure beats discussing finance. He knows nothing about art and design, and doesn’t seem interested in learning, and I don’t know crap about financing- but that doesn’t stop him from explaining it to me. Haye the difference between men and women…
Thing is though, these politician joke gets old. There’s only a short time you can keep laughing. At some point, you realize that it’s stopped being funny and started becoming repetitious. I’m tired of watching the same comedy routine for the 22 years I’ve been alive. I’m tired of watching “Democracy’s greatest victory” every few years, knowing how little it’ll matter in the future. It doesn’t matter who wins when both the contestants are swine.
So no, I won’t celebrate the CJ’s reinstatement. I don’t think the lawyers have done a great job. Anyone whose case has been in court for the last two years would know what a pain in the ass they’ve been to the ordinary people they’re supposed to be representing right now. The Supreme Court will not become honest and dedicated to the people, and the Chief Justice will not- and please let me underline this- NOT be the savior that this country is looking for.
