WE’RE ALL BRUCE BANNER AND IT’S TIME TO HULK OUT – TOM CURLEY

This is a blog I wrote at the beginning of this four year national nightmare. At the time all the talk was that America was really pissed off about, well basically everything Trump had done at that point. The press obsessed over “Trump fatigue.” How long can we stay mad at this shit storm? We’re tired of being angry.  Little did we know in year one of our rage just how much things were going to get worse. I re-posted it a few times over the last four years as our reasons to be enraged  grew exponentially. And now here we are, one week before election day and we are more pissed off than ever.  Our rage against this Covidiot-in-Chief is hitting new highs. Being angry has turned out not be a sprint, but a marathon.  And the finish line is a few days away.

So don’t feel tired. Stop and think about what has happened to us in the last four years.  Muslim bans. Toddlers torn from their parents and put in cages. Unbridled corruption. Depression level job loss. Failure to handle the worst pandemic in a hundred years. Over 200,000 Americans dead because our “President” just doesn’t give a shit. And the list goes on.

Think about all this and get REALLY mad. The Howard Beale kind of mad. “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” kind of mad.

Take all that anger out by standing in line as long as it takes. With a mask. And vote that sorry Orange piece of trash out. That includes all Republicans that are running for any office.

So here, hopefully for the last time is the original blog I wrote when the only thing we were mad at was a ban on Muslims. Those were such sweet innocent days.


WE’RE ALL BRUCE BANNER NOW – BY TOM CURLEY

Usually when I write one of these blogs I try to be funny.

pineterest.com

OK, maybe just humorous.

sonnyradio.com

Fine. Mildly amusing.

thedodo.com

Problem is, I can’t be funny right now because I’m angry. Really pissed off. And I’m not alone. Pretty much the whole country is really pissed off right now — but for different reasons. The media “narrative” or “explanation” or “excuse” for how SCROTUS got elected was that middle class white folks were pissed off. They wanted to give a big F-You to Washington.

And they succeeded beyond their wildest expectations. But here’s the thing. They are only about 20 to 25 percent of the population. The day after the election, a really odd thing happened. The remaining 75 percent of the population woke up REALLY PISSED! And not the grumpy old man “Hey you kids get off my lawn!” kind of pissed.

It included not only the people who didn’t vote for Trumpy McTrumpface, but everybody else. Us. We who make up the other 75 percent. This is a different level of pissed off for us. It’s “Incredible Hulk” level pissed off.

For those of you not in the Nerdverse like me, The Hulk is Bruce Banner. A nice, quiet, nerdy kind of guy. A scientist. He gets caught in a Gamma bomb blast (think Hydrogen bomb on steroids) and turns into The Incredible Hulk.

Whenever somebody pisses him off, and for some reason people are always pissing him off,  he turns green and grows to be about 15-feet tall. And starts throwing tanks and other large military objects at the people shooting at him. Usually the Army. The whole  Army. Or at least a few platoons.

When you think about it, we’re all a lot like the Hulk. We were, for the most part, going about our daily lives. Minding our own business. Many of us quiet and nerdy. Many of us are scientists, or at least we believe that science exists.  Then a huge Gamma bomb went off. Around midnight November 9th 2016. After which, we got really, seriously, pissed off.

Lately, you hear lots of people saying variations on the same theme:

“This is exhausting!”
“How much more of this can we take?”
“I can’t keep up. Something new and worse happens every day.”
“I can’t believe it’s not butter!”

Pundits warn that we will get used to the endless barrage of crap coming out of the White House swamp. That we can’t maintain this level of anger. That we’re getting worn out.

blogs.mpnews.com

blogs.mpnews.com “This is getting old”

Well, here’s the thing. The reason the Hulk always wins is because his real power is not his strength. It’s his anger. The madder he gets, the stronger he gets.

There is no upward limit on his strength because there’s
no upward limit on his rage.

theunrealtimes.com “You did not just gut the EPA”

And that’s the thing that the people shooting at the Hulk never understand. If you just stop shooting at him, he calms down. He turns back into Bruce Banner.

SCROTUS could do the same thing– more or less. You know, he could stop shooting all sorts of crap at us.

He won’t, though. It’s going to go on for a while. Years. Will we get tired?  Will we stop being pissed off? Will we give up and go home?

Nope. Because we may have drubbed him on the health bill, but while we were dealing with that, he’s destroying the water, the air, and every living creature on our continent. There are a lot of things on the block.

Stay mad! Why?

BECAUSE THE MADDER WE GET, THE STRONGER WE GET.
WE ARE ALL BRUCE BANNER NOW.

NOW, YOU CAN GET YOUR OWN SHIRT!


It’s on Custom Ink. The complexities of ordering the shirts then sending them out to each person are a bit much. But you can order directly from Custom Ink … so here’s the CustomInk link for the Bruce Banner tee.

These are pretty cool tees and if you think it sort of fits how you feel about the world and the way things are going? This is the tee that will tell your tale.

The profits from these shirts are not going to charity. To be precise, they are not going to us either. All profits go directly to CustomInk who print and deliver the shirts. You can use this design as a money raiser. If you would like to use it and change the back of the tee logo to something personal, I give you my permission to do so. If you do, please let me know what you are doing. We can do your own little feature here.

Just wanted everyone to recognize that this is not raising money for anyone other than the producing company. It got too complicated for us.

  1. I don’t really trust polls any more. The only poll you can trust is the one on election day but in this case we can’t even be sure about that one.

  2. I have a subscription to the NY Times (in addition to the Washington Post) and other miscellaneous stuff I read online from the Globe and NY Post, LA Times, and occasionally Newsweek. The polls are so confusing, I don’t know what to make of them. The general belief is that Biden is ahead in most places that should matter — but because of the Electoral College, might NOT matter nearly as much. I simply don’t know what to think, so I’m holding my breath and shooting photographs of birds.
