So I can often be wicked negative. And honestly, our site’s stats go up the more negative I am in my posts (and I get a few more fractions of cents from Google ads the higher our stats go, so,”¦), but often, I’m all like, “yeah, things are bad, but, blah, blah, blah.”
However this 38 Studios stuff I just can’t. This is a whole bunch of holy shit, this state sucks-ness.
I have this idea about Rhode Island that I put out there when I have a gin and tonic or two which I kind of think is funny ha ha, but also I think, I don’t really need the gin and tonics to promote.
In 1663 King Charles II of England gave us a charter for our colony. So, my gin soaked theory is that the current Queen of England could maybe just revoke that charter.
Make us a subject of the crown. It might be nice, we’d get double decker buses and those cool red phone booths. Maybe Pippa Middleton or Ricky Gervais would be appointed as our Governor-General, and the crown would protect us from ourselves giving blood-soaked soxed baseball people loads of cash with no concept that they had any idea what to do with it. Our Economic Development Corporation would be based at Canary Wharf. Sure we’d have a crazy tea tax, but we’d also get BBC shows as they aired, not a season later on BBC America.
So, go ahead. Let’s all have our catharsis and talk about how totally fucked up this whole situation is. But, then let us also realize, the Queen is not revoking our charter. And maybe we all want to up and leave, but how do we take this set back and continue on our path of making Rhode Island great?
Let’s be negative and and get me a few more fractions of cents from my Google ads, but let us also try to figure out how we can persevere and get through this.
