Well, another Superbowl has come and gone. and the New England Patriots win another one. You can't blame them,they played a better game then the Los Angeles Rams. And maybe if the refs got the call correct in the NFC Championship game it might have been the New Orleans Saints and they might have given the Patriots a better game. But that is not the jist of this essay.

Its just the constant bullshit that i see around me. Some people say that i think to much, that i have a look on me that i'm always thinking. Well,that is the way i am. Let me just give some examples that i have seen.

The rapper Cardi B stated that she would not perform at the halftime show at the SuperBowl because for her stance in support ofColin Kapernick. cool, good cause. But,then when you go to a pre superbowl party on the day before the  game that is sponsered by the NFL and Pepsi,holding a can of sugar poison,(soda),having pictures taken of you, and i'm sure you were paid a nice price for your services,it kinda  makes it out to be bullshit. If you truly believe in your ideas,you would have not bothered showing up at that party,and stand your ground. Maybe throw your own party without the hoopla and papparazzi. Then maybe the money you got for your showing up, maybe you will donate that money to some good causes. Don't hold your breath on that. Bullshit!

As for the artists who preformed at the halftime show,it was all about the money and self promotion. and it was a shitty halftime show to begin with from what i read and saw abit on the news.I was washing the dishes as that was on, so i guess that was my protest. I didn't take a knee,i washed the dinner plates and pots and pans. Maybe i would give Cardi B more credit if she helped me.

Then,there was a commerical for Budweiser,(or as i call it Barfweiser) that was using Bob Dylans  song "Blowin in the wind". A song about social change and justice,a song about hope of a better world. Making a better world out of pushing Budweiser on us isn't going to happen. Watered down piss. Bullshit! I seem to be bashing the Superbowl here, don't worry,i got others,things to call out on.

Well, i could talk about the current government that we have in the United States,but that would be to easy. Whoever is reading this can come up with their own things that they feel about what is bullshit in the government. But,what about this talk of Howard Schultz running as an independent for the presidency in 2020.

The bullshit part is, that its not the fact that this guy,one of the founders of Starbucks might give it a try to run for the White House. The bullshit part is when you have these talking heads on the television,or on youtube and other streaming services, as well as those in the Democratic Party, not so much from the Republicans, not yet anyway, who say that this guy shouldn't run because he will take votes away from the Democrats and help Trump win. Bullshit. When is it written in stone that you are only allowed to have two people running for office. This is to be a democracy. Any number can come and play, can't they? 

When you are running for office, it is up to each candiate,no matter if you have two three or more running for that office,the way you are going to lose is that you didn't get your message out to the voters. Its not because there are more than two people running. Get you ideas out better then the others, thats how you win. Let me use some baseball here. Can the NY Mets blame the Phillies,Marlins,and the Nationals for not playing better against the Atlanta Braves,thats why the Braves won the NL East,or maybe it was just that the NY Mets didn't play better baseball to win the division themselves. Its the same in politics, but there are those who will spew this bullshit and have people believe that a "third party or candiate" will be a spoiler. Bullshit! How come we don't call the Democratic Party the second party when a Republican is in the White House, and visa versa.

There is so much more bullshit out there people.Maybe some of you might think this essay is bullshit,but at least you gave me a chance to let my article be read and that i thank you. Freedom of thought, and freedom of speech is NOT BULLSHIT! So just have a shovel with you when you have to deal with all the bullshit that is thrown upon us.
