code orange

It's been a long time, but I just had to get a dose of the national news this evening to see which hurricane is gonna take us out this time.  What I saw, instead, was a video of some religious fanatic wanting to burn some Korans two days after my birthday.  Next was graphic footage of all them in Mexico killin' each other because marijuana  is illegal in the US they need more money to kill some people who are trying to get to what used to a great country.  Today?  Not so much.  No wonder I watch two and a half men.  It's all a part of a grander plan to provide retirement bucks for the DEA.  How many federal employees do you reckon will be able to enjoy their golden years on what our government gives them?  Do the math, ya'll.

I had to wonder to myself who in their right mind would want to be mayor of Chicago these days but I reckon he'll get by on his good looks and the grace of God.  BG has this theory that we're all in the Left Behind series, which I failed to read past volume I.  I'd rather read me some southern fiction or Stephanie and Lula.  It's much more fun than getting snatched out an airplane or off a four-wheeler to face judgement, Revelations style.  One of my favorite books EVER is Clyde Edgerton's "Walking Across Egypt".  Back when I had an upright piano, I could play and sing every note of that tune..

Every act of violence against one another makes Big Ernie weep over what we have become.  It doesn't matter who is president or who's in Congress because none of them ever agree because of opportunites to make money off of lobbyists  party lines.  Wonder if any of them ever ever consider we the people. If I were a bettin' gal, I'd say just a handfull.

Yep...I'm in a mood.  Ya'll got a problem with that?
