This illustration works in a couple different ways. How stupid the “natural immunity” crowd is, proving that Dr. Toupée Paul went into politics in Kentucky because he is a shitty doctor. He makes Dr. Nicke Riviera a Nobel winner. The other…how the MAGAts excel at making their Bully Culture grievances seem real, as if they’re on par with those who fought for the Civil Rights Movement.
I’m really saddened by this number. I was hoping it would be higher, maybe closer to 60, 50 at worse. I should’ve remembered the old adage, never underestimate the power of stupid people in great numbers. With the addition of, spread out across the vast amount of real estate stoked by Republican assholes who’ve profited off of them for decades.
Having lived in rural North Dakota, I had a front-row seat to this culture of willful ignorance during my last year of high school. All these peers who figured…after they graduated, they’ll be on easy street in which they can stay up, drink, get high and screw all they wanted without consequences. Until the money ran out and they had to get an actual 40-hour-a-week job or join the military. There was a minority who felt differently, and they were the invaders like me. They studied. They applied to universities. They moved the hell out of North Dakota. In time, the minority became the deflation of a balloon on the state’s overall population. The same is happening to the residents of rural Texas. They’re leaving the boonies for DFW, Houston, San Antonio and (sadly) Austin. I only hope I live long enough to see this place turn Blue enough to throw off the Republican, Dixiecrat and NeoConfederate intellectual shackles these older Texans willful permit.
