Failing The Friendship Litmus Test

People evolve or not, and I’ve lost zero interest in making an effort to stay in contact with those who can’t respect my individuality and support of President Trump, treating me like I’m a brainwashed lone wolf recruiters wet dream for Al-Qaeda.

These past 3 and a half years, have also me taught me how certain friends or family members don’t make the best backup group material in the world, when they refuse to concede any good generation in those you believe in. But you glaringly fail the friendship litmus test, when you actually have the gaul to decry a friend’s political beliefs as dumb, when you haven’t even uttered how ANTIFA are a bunch of vigilante Punisher wannabes in hoodies tweaked out on Crystal Meth yet.

Last, you lose all motivational zeal to pick up the phone, when your parents, siblings or old friends call you for old time sake, knowing how the past 3 and half years and counting has only reinforced your depressingly nagging suspicion about how these people who are supposed to love your own special brand individuality, never valued your intelligence or capacity for critical thought very much in the 1st place, especially when they go out of their way, to make you feel bad about yourself, for trusting your own instincts, dreaming big and for rising above their limited, cubicle contained imaginations of what you’re capable of achieving without their huffy, belabored, no longer sought after fawned over approval at all.

Indentured Servant or Homemaker Ho?

Should stay at home mom’s get paid? If you can afford to be a stay at home mom and your husband doesn’t bust your balls about it because he’s allowed to live his life to the fullest, while you don’t have to penny pinch at the Farmer’s Market, then keep your white privilege issues to yourself girlfriend.

Should stay at home mom’s get paid? But I thought woman loved the divine gift of raising superior versions of themselves planned or not, because of Do It All Dad’s molding on top. I don’t think stay at home dads should get paid, but I’m not a fake feminist either.

True Lincoln Log Story, Google It,

True, Lincoln Log story, Google it. My great, great, great grandfather, Austin Gollaher, saved his boyhood bud Abraham Lincoln from drowning, yet nobody ever heard of him and he couldn’t rub 2 pennies together before he died a broke down, never was.  Because when Abe was drowning to death in the river because he slipped on a log while crossing Knob Creek to rush back in time for supper or miss out on more Raccoon soup, a 7 year old Abe, had a vision of  liberating the black man from slavery but had his friend Austin promise to never tell anyone about him almost drowning to death because Abe couldn’t let the black man know he was a worst swimmer than they. What a gyp?  Poor Austin never got to cash in on the greatest Presidential save after JFK kept Marilyn warm for Bobby.   My great, great, great grandfather, Austin Gollaher was a man of his word and never told anyone about saving Abe’s life until after his assassination, but he had to have been tempted from time to time, especially at the local moonshine shack on a Friday night, when the circus was in town and the famous circus Elephant Old Bet got all the peanuts he can eat. Meanwhile, my great, great, great Grandfather Austin Gollaher, stares down his last sip of 200 proof White Lightning, thinking, “ Hillbilly lives don’t matter much anymore.”
