I get at least thirty emails a day demanding I be outraged over something outrageous. They ask for money or that I call my Congressman or the President.
Bloggers blog on millions of outrages every day.
My man Les of Rational Nation is outraged that a white guy was beaten up by black guys cause he was white. Les is outraged that we're not as outraged at this as we were over the Treyvon Martin killing.
I'd love to have the passionate outrage I once had. I had so much damn outrage I could do a credible post every day and visit two dozen other blogs expressing my outrage at the things my fellow bloggers were outraged over.
I had a couple posts lifted almost verbatim by a guy who was a contributor to Huffington Post. Had other posts and stuff lifted from the comment section used as original material by other major leaguers as well.
I was outraged at the time but truth is, I'm tired of being outraged. It's like my old buddy John said to me a long time ago. He was getting screwed by everyone. No matter what he did, he was getting fucked to death. I asked him how he dealt with getting fucked all the time. John said "you get used to it."
I guess I'm just so used to being outraged I don't even feel it anymore.
