Crazy and Angry from the Heat…

Happy Friday readers! Did you ever wonder how the saying “Thank God It’s Friday” became so popular? Non-religious and lazy people usually just say “TGIF.” I just wonder sometimes who started saying it and how it caught on so much to the point where a restaurant chain named themselves that. I never felt comfortable saying I really enjoyed my meal at Thank God It’s Fridays.

Anyway, that’s not what this is about. I actually started to express my true feelings about Facebook and the things that people put on their Facebook pages and their status updates, but it would have been such a hateful rant that I’m saving that for stand-up :D.  All I can say is that I get annoyed every time I scroll through Facebook at what people post and it makes me really dislike people and I DO NOT need help with that. That comes very easy to me. So instead, I’ll direct my hatred toward politics.

The election is just months away and both sides are slinging shit left and right. When Bush (the second coming) was in office, I was very passionate about politics and how wrong the Republicans were, and now, through maturity, age and wisdom, I now know both parties and everyone involved in politics are fucking idiots. I’m so disgusted with where our country is with the finger pointing, the hate, the lies, the greed, the racism, the homophobia, the wars….should I go on? I don’t believe Obama, I don’t believe Romney, I don’t believe a word anyone says any more, and I can’t believe anyone else does. What made me start on this rant, ironically enough, was what my friend posted on Facebook: “House Approves $600 Billion for Defense — no hand wringing, no bitching and moaning, no one side holding the other hostage… just done and done. Incredible.” (thanks Luke)

So, they can’t agree on whether or not to make gay marriage or pot legal, but have no problem approving that kind of budget in case we need to kill people.  If that doesn’t scream moronic imperialism, I don’t know what does. Women are still battling for complete control over their uterus, they’re cutting education budgets left and right, and 1% of the population holds most of the money, but at least we have guns. Where would we be without our guns?  I’m being sarcastic for all you gun lovers. I think we should only be allowed to have BB guns and knives….and Judge Judy should be president.

This is who we need to whip this country into shape…

I’ll be honest, I’m not an idealist who thinks that our government is less corrupt than others, they just control and manipulate in a slicker way. Illegal immigration for example. It’s so easy to blame the dumb, non-English speaking immigrants who refuse to assimilate into American culture, but if you think that the government isn’t partially responsible for that, than you’re as dumb as the immigrants. If the government really wanted to stop it, they would, but they don’t. And every decision that is made, if you trace it back, usually gets back to greed or control…or worse….religion!

At the risk of sounding like a femi-nazi, I still cannot believe that abortion and a woman’s right to choose, not only is a political topic that gets everyone riled up, but it’s a political topic that is motivated by religious beliefs. How disgusting is that? Enough with the “life begins at conception” crap, that’s your BELIEF, maybe that’s not mine. I believe mothers should have the right to kill their teenagers but I’m not gonna pass a law about it. It’s my personal belief. And gay marriage should be a civil right. You’re homophobia and your stupid belief in the bible shouldn’t dictate giving gay people the same right to build up years of resentment towards someone they’re legally bound to out of choice. Why should just straight people have that right?

The focus of this shitty government should be to fix the economy. Hmmmm, big problem, what should we do??? Well, let’s start with the fact that I had to call two different banks this week and the first time I spoke to someone in India and the second time I spoke to someone in the Phillipines.


Is there anything that you wear or that you own that isn’t made in China?? Hmmmm….real head scratchers, right? We just can’t seem to figure out how to fix the economy when some of the biggest and most powerful corporations are hiring foreigners so that they can keep MORE money from the cheap labor. And the government allows this. So, do they really want to fix the economy? How about passing a law that says you can’t hire outside the US? Just an idea. I know that’s not completely realistic, but I’m just making a point. Where’s Judge Judy?

Look, part of the problem is that I’m fighting with my landlord right now because he just installed a new air conditioner in my apartment and it’s not working!  And hot weather makes me cranky and hateful. It’s literally about 100 degrees in my apartment when I get home from work and I have to direct my frustration somewhere or I’ll just start eating candy to make myself feel better.

If you got through this whole post, thank you for reading, whether you agree with me or not. I’ll be honest…I’ve kind of given up on America. I still love this country and all that patriotic crap, but I’m just focused on getting a properly working air conditioner. I hope you’re staying cool and remember….TGIF!

I just cringed a little bit as I typed that. Have a great weekend my darlings! 😀

About Death To Hollywood

My name is Celeste Donohue and I am a writer/comedian who started this blog to tell stories about my life growing up in a funeral home and my adult life which I have spent in Hollywood, California – hence the name, “Death To Hollywood”. Hopefully, you like to read those kinds of stories. If not, go read something serious and boring.....

    Heat really does get to you,doesn’t it? So many people think and feel exactly like you.Government is supposed to be for the people,by the people, and, of the people,but, a lot are on the government SOCIAL programs,that they are afraid to lose,so, unless we realize that voting is important and vote them out of office,we give up our right to complain.Hope your NEW air conditioner gets fixed.Love,Mom

    Medic! Get this girl an icepack for her head and a cool bath for her feet!

    I feel for you C, I really do because I absolutely loathe the heat. The only way I can stand it is if I know it will cool off at night like when we lived in the desert.

    As far as the government, I think you are right. Money for guns but they are cutting food stamps, medicaid, trying to de-fund Planned Parenthood, Social Security, money for returning vets even, sickening.

    Thank the stars that it still has to pass the Senate. They aren’t exactly superheroes but at least it isn’t a complete mental institution like the House.

    C, at least the heat where you are is dry heat…..(kidding). I know you’re miserable, and if I could, I’d place cool compresses under your armpits and pour tropical drinks down your gullet. Your life sounds like “Dog Day Afternoon”, and you don’t even have Sal. As for the country, yeah it’s a mess. We have immature boomers running the House, and they’re as crazy as they vote. The military budget makes up 35% of each year’s federal budget. That $600 billion dollar defense budget came only after Dick Cheyney visited The Republican caucus in the house. You know the military-industrial complex is serious when they call out crazy Dick to lobby the whackos in Congress. Six hundred Billion… We didn’t spend that much against the Soviets. Undocumented immigrants have poured into the country for 25 years because Democrats see new voters and country-club Republicans see a mass of perfectly exploitable serfs. So in reality, nobody wanted to enforce immigration laws and Congress never funded INS. As for your other complaints, they are right on. I especially believe women should be afraid that they’re reproductive rights are being actively eroded. I hope citizens understand that their family-planning rights, which have been fought for and earned, can be effectively reversed. I’m even apprehensive about the presidential election, when we’ll get to see the results of Republican state legislatures who gerrymandered congressional district lines and enacted Jim Crow-like Voter ID Laws. This election will be even more crooked than 2000. I wish I could get to Canada. Where it’s cool……..

    • Thanks for your feedback and mostly your sympathy and understanding that my life is like Dog Day Afternoon…and no Sal 😦 November is sure to be a disaster…which makes sense considering the country’s state. The problem with Canadians is that they say “ay” too much and that’s just a little too gay for me 😀
