Have you read the news lately?
It seems all that’s missing are the 4 Horsemen of The Apocalypse making their rounds on Leno, Oprah and The View.
Our Cappucino Commander In Chief won a Nobel Peace Prize for apparently little more than knowing how to read and being congenial enough to wear a suit, Iran has a self-hating Jewish leader who wants to blow up the world to bring his messiah and Drew Barrymore directed a movie that wasn’t completely bashed on and hated out of the starting gate. Ebert said so. I read it in a newspaper this morning.
Strangely enough, of the three options I think the Barrymore movie looks to be the least insane.
All of this mayhem makes me hunger for the down home comforts of a padded cell and all the lime jell-o I can eat in one sitting.
It’s a scary world out there, folks!
I would comment on the news but I wouldn’t know where to start. Seriously. I wouldn’t. I’ve been trying to get my brain around current events and I’m dumbfounded.
Who’d a thunk it? Y’know?
Somebody Famous Mitterand admits to being a sex tourist. But it’s “his business” and his privacy is sacrosanct in France. He promotes visiting Thailand. I don’t think he’ll be the goodwill ambassador there anytime soon.
Yay… Go France… So impressive with your tolerance and your joie de vivre bringing enlightenment and predators to children. In the secrecy of your own homes.
The Obama’s failed to impress the International Olympic Committee with the sheer force of their combined grooming, the empowerment of affirmative action, and speech reading skills. I’d mention their quantities of melanin production but that would make me a racist. Wait… You’re only a racist when you acknowledge that a human being has done something stupid and then notice that they are red/yellow/black/white. Although no one knows if they really are precious in His sight. They’d have to agree He exists.
Apparently a lengthy exposition of personal accomplishments and a crazy dose of Hope/Change sparkle couldn’t sway them. Who knew? I think the Obama’s were probably the most surprised when they didn’t make the grade. First time for everything, huh? Wonder why? Maybe that’s why he got the Consolation, er, Peace Prize.
Yep. They couldn’t get those aristocratic Europeans to go for the Ghettos of Chicago. Go figure.
I’m tired of being quiet about this.
I don’t like anyone up front in Washington. They are nothing more than a bunch of sycophants on somebody’s gravy train waiting for their next 15 minutes or big pay off.
So the 2016 Olympics will be in Rio de Janeiro. Well, at least there will be a lot of “dates” for the Olympians and plenty of that wholesome family Carnival atmosphere.
Just be careful to keep your kids on a leash, your teenage sons blindfolded and your daughters within arms reach.
And what does the Body do? The church sits around and does nothing but hide in their little holes, planning the next service, the next bulletin. How many fellowships are already having tryouts for the Christmas pageant? Because that is the Really Cool, The Really Important stuff. Keeping our eyes focused on, um…
I sat next to a girl today who told me she needed $150 so the bank wouldn’t take her car away, they were being evicted in a week, every call was collections and her marriage was hanging by a thread and a prayer. And that was just today.
I don’t think her family cares very much that our POTUS has promised everyone a pony and a piece of cake. They’d like a roof… Please. Thank you.
Every liberal out there is shouting from the rooftops that “At least he isn’t Bush!” as though that is the single greatest endorsement they can give the President.
Come to think of it, it might just be the best thing they can say.
I’m so frustrated I’d leave if I thought it would do any good. But where would we go?
These are interesting times. And if you know anything about the Word you know that they will not get better. We must be diligent, not sleepy. We must be aware, not ignorant.
But don’t worry. I’m just some tin-foil hat religious fundie on a rampage. A homeschooling, isolationist fundamentalist who refuses the swine flu vaccination and believes in absolute right and absolute wrong. Good and evil. Hope and despair.
I’m sure it’ll be all better in the morning.
As long as we all keep focusing our positive thoughts on the powers that be and I’m sure it’ll all be just fine.
