What is wrong with America?
My wife’s kin are what is wrong with America.
They support tea-party Republicans even though they’re all in lower economic brackets and get the shit kicked out of them financially every time a conservatives in the White House. They piss and moan about how crap the democrats are to the economy, then turn around and spend the EXTRA money they get FROM democrats in their disability cheques on video games, strip joints and food that would make a sumo worry about his weight.
They are born again creationist Christians. They moan and wail about how THE GAYS are a threat to the sanctity of marriage even though most of these bigots are divorcees and as such are considered adulterers in the eyes of Jeebus. They talk about how GREAT God is to them as they change their oxygen tanks and swallow fistfuls of pain-meds to counteract all those lovely ‘tests of faith’ he keeps sending their way.
Especially testing as, thanks to the folks they voted for, they can’t afford any health coverage aside from what will be given to them for free or what will place them in debt for the rest of their lives. Thanks again republicans, oh, and thanks as well for the fact that you got the large company that poisoned our ground water with 10 different cancer causing agents off the hook and out of paying for the clean-up.
When money is available and sent to them to help clear their bills, it is forgotten within a week, but when times get tough and the cheques stop coming YOU’RE the one no longer making the grade.
My wife’s parents would go months without calling and YEARS without making any attempt to visit her. Now that she’s no longer willing to be the one who makes all the effort with no return, she’s a freaking witch in their eyes and history is rewritten so that an absentee father now “treated her like a princess”.
When was this exactly, oh mighty King of Parenthood?
Maybe it was when you forgot to tell her mother that you already HAD a family and were in fact a Bigamist.
I know, maybe it was after things got tough, YOU ran away, social services took her and the STATE did the parenting FOR YOU!!!
Or maybe it was later when you refused to co-sign the loan that would have allowed her to stay in school?
Hell, the only reason she NEEDED a co-signatory was because her Mom fucked up her own credit, STOLE her teenage daughter’s Social Security Number, set up new utility accounts in her name and then didn’t fucking pay them.
You people are self pitying, self-centred, self-righteous hypocrites one and all. You are users, giving a damn only when there’s something in it for you. Now the only two decent things that came out of your family, your daughter and her daughter, are off-fucking-limits.
Deal with it.
