Respect Is Earned. Not Guaranteed.

You know why so many people (mainly ASSHOLE supporters) are in a tizzy over Stephen Colbert referring to ASSHOLE as Putin’s “cock-holster”?  It’s not so much that they dislike what was said.  It’s that they’re upset, even shocked, that someone FINALLY had the balls to say something derogatory against ASSHOLE.  I think more people in the media, whether it be nighttime talk show hosts, daytime talk show hosts or journalists should speak out more.  ASSHOLE deserves to be talked back to.  It’s one thing he’s not expecting.  All his life he’s believed he can say and do what he wants and get away with it. Colbert basically said “no more”.  It’s been a long time coming.

Then there are the ASSHOLE supporters who cry “show some respect”.  Respect for what?  Why should anyone respect this ASSHOLE with all the bullshit he lays on us every day?  Because of his “job” as “president”?  There are many who have “jobs” as “CEO’s” but if they’re an asshole, they won’t be respected either.  Respect is earned.  Not guaranteed.

Why should anyone feel it’s okay to respect an ASSHOLE who mocks a disabled reporter?  Why should anyone feel it’s okay to respect an ASSHOLE who says he grabs women by the pussy?  Why should anyone feel it’s okay to respect an ASSHOLE who calls one of his senators “Pocahontas” because he doesn’t believe her nationality?  Why should anyone feel it’s okay to respect ASSHOLE when he calls another senator “Little Marco” because of his height? Why should anyone feel it’s okay to respect ASSHOLE for calling a political opponent “crooked”, especially when HE’S the one who is crooked?  Why should anyone feel it’s okay to respect ASSHOLE for banning people of one religion from our country, simply because he doesn’t like that religion?  Why should anyone feel it’s okay to respect ASSHOLE for banning immigrants from our country, especially since the majority of us, including ASSHOLE himself, wouldn’t even BE here if not for immigration?  Why should anyone feel it’s okay to respect ASSHOLE for allowing alleged Christian businesses to discriminate against someone who is LGBTQ?  Why should anyone feel it’s okay to respect ASSHOLE for taking away our healthcare coverage? Why should anyone feel it’s okay to respect ASSHOLE for referring to any negative news about himself (which is most of the news) as “fake”, especially when we know it’s not?  Why would anyone feel it’s okay to respect ASSHOLE for going on a national TV show for an interview, mock the title of the show, then abruptly end the interview because he didn’t like the way the interview was going? Why?  Why WOULD anyone respect ASSHOLE or ANY of these things that he’s done?  Why would anyone feel it’s okay?  If you do feel it’s okay for ASSHOLE to do all this stuff, if you respect all this shit, then you’re just as bad as ASSHOLE.

Yet everyone in a tizzy feels it’s NOT okay for what Colbert said.  What’s good for the goose is good for the gander, folks.  If ASSHOLE can dish it out but can’t take it, then he shouldn’t play the game.  Besides, with all the shit that spews from ASSSHOLE’S pie hole, using it as Putin’s cock-holster would be a step up.

I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!

Tell me what you think!
