As Homeboy Sandman rapped in “America, The Beautiful”, ““We are the 99 percent locally, We are the one percent globally.” well, yeah, we have so much and they, whoever they are, its hard to keep track… Syrian orphans, teens in Bed Stuy, whatever, it’s them not us and as we go through another Thanksgiving it is worth mentioning that life fucking sucks for most people so what you have to do is cover yourself. You’re OK, you’re alright guys, it’s them instead of us. Because if you think the difference is how smart you are, I’ve got some very bad news…
Yep, you’re an overeducated fuck face and thank god you were born here, or came in, because trust me, you are a minute away from wandering around refugee camps being robbed and killed by ISIS on one hand and slaughtered by US Drones on the other hand.
So sign a check to Bob geldof except, the problem with pop music charity is neither pop nor charity but distribution of money specifically. Sending the money is easy, getting where you wnt it to go… not so fast folks.
But like Bono sang once: Thank God it’s them instead of you and what you wanna do is take pleasure in your good luck. You won the world lottery, stop whinging and get stuffed. Look at it this way: it is your responsibility to give Thanks by enjoying what you’re giving thanks for.
