I tried. I really tried. I just couldn’t come up with anything flowery and reflective to say. So I guess I am back to commenting on the crashing culture that is the United States, absent prose and praise.
While I was on sabatical, the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin managed to once again prove that playing with dangerous animals is good TV and getting killed while doing it is even better TV. Seriously, how does this not rate a place on Australia’s Funniest Home Videos! Or MTV’s Dumb Ass series. The only difference is the money in the spin. If you spin it right it is socially acceptable. If you don’t it is a pariah. The other problem is that after you have bored people with tempting fate a few times, you have to up the anti to keep them watching you. Eventually you up it beyond your ablities and get the inevitable results.
Brian Williams managed to interview the President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. I have watched this interview several times and can only conclude that Williams is the mealy mouth coward he appears to be. He could not look Ahmadinejad in the eye. Half the time his eyes were at half mast. Later, on MSNBC, he called Ahmadinejad a madman, something he would not do in the interview.
Brian could have gone to the top of his profession. He was given a head start by Tom Brokaw. Unfortunately he is dumber than bat shit. So he will continue sliding toward his inevitable end at the bottom of the cesspool that is American news media. The market is always right and always corrects and fools always show themselves for what they are.
At about the same time that Williams was interviewing Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chevez was calling the president the devil on the floor of the UN. I prefer to just drop the “d” and call him evil, but devil works too. The MSM has portrayed America as outraged at this name calling session, but on the street I don’t see it. Most recognize Bush for the idiot he is. Most have realized that the wars he is waging are contrived and unnecessary. Most would like to see him gone. There are several impeachment drafts in the works, just make sure you get rid of Cheney at the same time. Then it wouldn’t be a bad idea to get rid of congress and the supreme court JustUs idiots. The people have pretty much had it with leaders using their roles in government to violate every right that a free man possesses. That’s right, it is weird word time. If you look at possesses long enough, it starts to look like something that evil king George would use. I don’t think he can spell it though. He still has a problem with “nukular”. 😉
I’ll have more views to snooze on later… I had a whole book in my head, but now I seemd to have washed it away with the vodka…
It is my firm opinion that Europe (and the United States) does not represent the spirit of God or Christianity but the spirit of Satan. And Satan’s successes are the greatest when appears with the name of God on his lips.
I consider western Christianity in its practical working a negation of Christ’s Christianity. I cannot conceive Jesus, if he was living in flesh in our midst, approving of modern Christian organizations, public worship, or ministry.
It pains me to have to say that the Christian missionaries as a body, with honorable exceptions, have actively supported a system which has impoverished, enervated and demoralized a people considered to be among the gentlest and most civilized on earth. – Mahatma K. Gandhi
