Maybe I’m selfish, but I worry about things in a certain order.
My home, my family, my town, and on outward from there.
I think most of us work that way, protecting our homes and wives and men and children and our health first, and then moving on outward from there.
Animals do it, yes? They look to what they can eat and gather for food, they look to find safe shelter, they look to mate and multiply and be able to take care of their own.
That’s not selfish, then, is it? It’s just actually common nature. Natural.
It’s common sense. Common. Yes?
Play along with me, I’m on a roll. I’m going to break this down into a political spiel.
Even if it takes me all week.
I have a point to make, and it’s this: Rhinos and polar bears and rain forests are important to me, yes, but not as important to me as my home and health and family.
If I was to believe every drop of literature that hits my mail box and email I would just give up living due to crying my brains out over the pain and humility and fear that some species of bat suffers in one single county in Texas due to the over abundance of big box store parking lot lighting.
I would have given every cent to Beto O’Rourke even though I live in Pennsylvania.
I would have dropped everything to march to DC wearing a pink knitted hat that represents the Pussy Cat Dolls and vaginas and feminism all in one, somehow, without irony, hear me roar.
Come on, already. Stop expecting people like me to just drop everything and give a flying fuck about your latest outrage or grievance or political manipulation of the week.
Regular folks just want to do their jobs and take care of their homes and families.
God please just let us live our lives and let others live theirs.
Does that make me a white supremist??
