I have some questions for the cosmos.
1. Since when is Tim Tebow the only football player to go down on one knee in acknowledgement of his success coming from above? There are hundreds of sportsmen and women who in some way publicly show appreciation for the entity who they believe blessed them with the talent and abilities that they were able to call upon to succeed at their endeavor.
I grew up watching football and I know of what I speak. No one commented on this behavior. No one was offended because someone believed differently then they did. No one cast aspersion at least publicly against someone’s right to believe whatever they chose.
Since when did we became a nation of emotional basket cases, reduced to whining and carping at every little perceived slight? Could it be that there are those among us who fell guilty about their lack of morality? Who know they should believe in something but refuse to do so due to an unwillingness to admit that there is something greater and more powerful then themselves? Could it be in their heart of hearts they know that a Supreme Being exists but they are unwilling to change their destructive behavior out of hubris or pride? Could it be like children, they want what they want and no one is going to get in their way?
I don’t really know and I’m not sure how much I care. My belief system has so little to do with the people of this world as to not even be in the same phylum. The one thing that may keep me out of heaven is the almost total disgust and derision I view the human species with. Individual people I love/like, people as a group are “dumb panicky animals” as Agent K in Men in Black famously said, interested only in satisfying whatever animal urge is working on them at the time. Don’t believe me, head on out to Wal Mart this evening about 7 pm and see for yourself.
2. David Patreous was forced to resign from leading the CIA over an illicit affair? Since when is morality a prerequisite for a government job? Since when was having an affair cause for dismissal?
Oh and apparently the woman involved is not going to be charged. Not charged, for what? Illegal use of email? Bad decisions? Immorality? Seriously we have 4 dead Americans from Benghazi and nobody’s going to suffer for that except the families and friends of the deceased. The United States Justice Department has thrown out the rule of law and now only acts on whatever it is that “the Emperor” has decided is important. The protection of certain minority groups is more important than the protection of the majority of it’s citizens and now no one is willing or interested in protecting the United States from enemies foreign and domestic.
John F Kennedy was a serial philanderer as was his brother Teddy who was also a murderer. Bill Clinton was a predator who took advantage of the vulnerable and naive. John Kerry was proved a liar and a cheat. Barney Frank was incompetent and little Chucky Schummer was shown to be all three. And those are just the most egregious examples, there are hundreds nay thousands of examples on both sides of the political chasm and in all communities and ethnicities of this kind of abhorrent behavior. While Dr Seuss may have believed a person is a person no matter how small, the smallness of a persons character has a direct correlation to their humanity or lack there of.
The blanket hypocrisy rolling forth from Mt Obama and it’s high priests and sycophants is phenomenal. Makes ancient Greek mythology look like a veritable cornucopia of upstanding and moral giants by comparison.
3. Tomorrow the world is supposed to end 12-21-12 according to the Mayans. Where are the nay sayers, where are the eco-nazies, the leftist head scratchers? Why aren’t they planning a going out of business sale or some other such nonsense? Do they in their hubris not understand the possibilities, after all of the publicity, the many TV shows which show this as a backdrop? I don’t know but I can tell you this, when my Father calls me home I’m going to be ready to leave. It is only my belief in an after life that keeps me here at all.
So if tomorrow it should all go to pot I want my loved ones to know that “I will love you forever” and thats how all that needs said about that.
