The whole of humanity, every single one of us, is a fuck-up.   You and every person you know have fucked something up.  If this is not evident to you, or you doubt it, I refer you to Saint Paul in Romans 3:10…paraphrasing here:  nobody gets it right every single fucking time, nobody.  

There are two groups of fuck-ups.  The first group recognize when they fuck-up.  They have an ability to look at their actions and say “whoa man, that is fucked-up”.  Then they go about correcting their fuck-up, or getting somebody who knows what the fuck they are doing to fix it, or praying to God to protect others from their fuck-up.  After all fuck-ups, like elections, have consequences.

The second group is oblivious to their fuck-ups.  Even when you point it out to them, they don’t see it.  They usually start saying some really fucked-up words in defense of their fucked-up actions.  We call these people conservatives.

The Nixon, Reagan, and both Bush administrations are strong examples of this fuck-up and defend your fuck-up behavior.

But, I want to offer a disgusting example to really bring my point home that some people just can’t recognize how fucked-up their actions are.

George Zimmerman fucked-up.  He killed Trayvon Martin.  Whether it was murder or manslaughter or even self-defense is beside the point.  If Zimmerman hadn’t taken some fucked-up actions, Martin would still be alive.  I think everybody can agree killing Martin was fucked-up and shouldn't be celebrated.

Unfortunately, people are celebrating it.   Here is an article telling us that Zimmerman was at an Orlando gun shop signing autographs.  Celebrating a man whose only notoriety is doing a fucked-up thing is beyond fucked-up.     I don’t know what more to say.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
