From far away, this is how it looks: There is a country out there where tens of millions of white Christians, voting freely, select as their leader a black man of modest origin, the son of a Muslim. There is a place on Earth — call it America — where such a thing happens.
I didn’t go to work today because I like 3-day weekends and because I had shit to do. I had to go get a new driver’s license and social security card in my real name so that I can renew my passport, which is already in my real name. It was a record. I finished at the MVA and SSA in less than an hour TOTAL! I know. The heavens are smiling upon me.
I also watched about 20 minutes of the most disgusting show on cable — The Millionaire Matchmaker. It is the epitome of all things whack, shallow and moronic about this materialistic capitalist culture that’s driving me insane in America. I couldn’t take it after her tirade about straightening curly hair and getting extensions because that’s all “they” want to see; they want something they can run their hands through — no Brillo. No Brillo?!?!? And she was talking to a curly-haired white woman. So this was gold-diggers meet millionairs ISO gold-diggers. It was disgusting. But to each his own, I suppose. (That’s supposed to negate the judgment I chose to express in the previous sentence.)
So, I have a question. Do you have a passport? If so, tell me about your stamps. I have only had mine stamped in Argentina and Chile. All other countries I’ve visited didn’t require passports for US citizens. But the times they are a’changin’, so get one if you haven’t already.
Where have you traveled?
