Fighting all the time explains the brain damage. The wise pugilist hopes fists get sore before the jaw. The only thing harder than the physical ailments is mentally justifying constant brawling as rugged. It’s easy to hit anyone who comes within arm length. Windmilling limbs nonstop leaves little time to come up with policies if you’re wondering why we still have Obamacare and stupid taxes.
Justify haymakers. The Donald Trump presidency is the lamest Fight Club remake possible. If we’re going back to the most irritating things about the ’90s, a relevant Trump is just another example of nihilism we should’ve left behind. Random seething rage is really healthy for both humans and the country. You may have noticed it doesn’t get much done.
There should be motivation for informing someone from the other faction about their questionable ancestry. Jerry Seinfeld noted boxers should get in a car crash first to get angry at each other with purpose, and we should listen considering our country is presently about nothing. Short of arranging fender benders, look for those with whom you disagree. Screaming at anyone who’s been green-lit is not sufficing. The fact both parties want more control over your decisions hasn’t convinced them to seek common ground.
Contemporary debate consists of a sibling in the back seat deciding whatever the other says is stupid. Letting a foe define you is fine if you’re eight. But the double-digit ages are a time when you should develop your own personality. By contrast, our 71-year-old kid president shows how strong his ego is by deciding he is who hates him. The free agent despises everyone wearing a different-colored jersey even if he has to look down to remember which one he donned. At least the NFL features collisions for the time being.
Think of a reason. Knowing just why you hate the other party is why you need an ideology. Try endorsing the notion that the government is to life what Hillary Clinton is to accepting responsibility. It would’ve been nice if the president had a belief system. I guess thinking he’s the best counts.
Why are we yelling? Arguers should probably start with principles before defending them. I hate to tell the president how to do his job, but it’s good if you don’t have to be informed by an aide why you despise whoever’s facing you. It wouldn’t be such a problem if he could stop being so amateur. I know it’s his greatest virtue, but it’s about time to go pro. He ends up hollering at the woman he beat and the cable networks that gave him endless free hours to compensate.
Call me a pacifist, but we shouldn’t want to pummel everyone. Maybe aim some vitriol for Iran instead of preening reporters. The only thing lamer than journalists is fighting with them. Shrugging at a mendacious media before doing what’s right would be the true victory. Instead, the president punches down out of habit.
I wonder if the president is overcompensating with his boasting. Am I this cynical? Such insolence will get me on Sean Hannity’s list of disloyal Americans, which I’ve been waiting for since the election. Being more obnoxious about purportedly brawling is only refreshing for five minutes. If voters were seething before, wait until they note what hasn’t changed under Trump. It’s no wonder he always seems so petulant. His core fans follow his cues as very strong individuals.
Imagine taking on enemies with a purpose. Disagreeing with them doesn’t count unless there’s a better reason than having been assigned teams during gym class. Anger is pointless without cause. I know that bar fights with angry dolts seem entertaining, but the fun of waking up with teeth on the pillow wears off after a few years.
Randomly lashing out at everyone isn’t as tough as advertised. A good shooter should at least know where the barrel’s aiming. The same applies for furled hands. It turns out much of the electorate doesn’t care about properly limiting government: they only want the perception of brawling. I know just the loudmouth.
The White House Boxing Gym doesn’t spar for anything of value, which is why all the ruinous liberal junk remains in place. You’d think those who disregard contact restrictions would get more victories. Supposed nonstop belligerents ignore both the Constitution and Marquess of Queensberry Rules yet still haven’t won rounds since the qualifying bout. Hitting is lame unless there’s a good reason. Nobody at the White House has thought of one.
