33 Years Late

Published:

Last Edited: August 15, 2017, 3:32 pm

2017 - 1984 = 33

Later than Orwell predicted, but Big Brother has come of age.

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.”

  - George Orwell, 1984

A absolutely perfect prediction, Mike; I would double down on that quote

"People could be in a state whereas they would love their servitude."
~A. Huxley , Brave New World

Who knew when we read that book in school we were reading the future of our country?

I know, right? I never dreamed we'd be morphing into what Orwell envisioned. I figured it would be more along the lines of flying cars and a robot in every house.

I bet you are still having problems with Goodnight Moon and Dick and Jane. You   sure didn't read either 1984 or Brave New World when you were that age. I read In Cold Blood, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and any Heinlein novel I could lay hands on when I was in the fourth grade.   You were probably just graduating to reading the back of cereal boxes by then.

Grow up? You should try it sometime; you know, not make fun of how your scum daddy trained his dog to pee on people's legs. He was a S.O.B. and so are you.

Obviously you never had a doberman. He was a legend still revered in some 'unknown' places if you catch my drift. Palms facing out if ya know what I mean. People still put license plates on his grave 20 years later. Lol. Obviously you don't have a clue about what I'm saying. But I really just don't like you. It's a good thing free speech protects what I say and yeah 1984 was assigned reading to me in my school. Sorry if you find that hard to believe. Alduous Huxley , well any good school would never assign that crap. Lol

Maybe that Dobe was your brother?

Now your story keeps changing and trying to insinuate your scum father was a hit man or something. What a liar you are. License plates on his grave? Was he a car thief? No, sorry, I don't know what that means b/c unlike you, I wasn't raised in a family of crooks and thugs.

There's never been a school in history that assigned 1984 in the 4th grade. One more lie I caught you in.

I despise you, whoreson and don't give a crap what you think about me.

Ok makes no difference to me. I've always been able to get under people's skin. It's just fun to see how easy it is to do to you. No not a hitman not even close. That's a good one. I'm 'untouchable'. Believe whatever you want to.

You flatter yourself; my exchanges w/ you are akin to pulling wings off of flies. It's cruel how I best you all the time, not only in facts, but in insults.   You're PR scum, lonely girl.

That's right, Tenaj. Who would have ever known that would be an allegory for today's leftists and Democrat party?
