Absurd!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have too much respect for the idea of God to make it responsible for such an absurd world. – Georges Duhamel

The world is indeed an absurd place.  What else can explain George W. Bush and Dick Cheney?  We are fighting a preemptive war based on lies in Iraq which posed about as much a threat to the United States as those jihadist’s penguins in the South Pole.  We are spending ten billion dollars a month to support that war while we have a homeless problem and people going to sleep at night while hungry.  We have bridges falling into rivers and children falling into the abyss of despair and hopelessness.  There are people killing themselves and their families with guns that are easy to purchase as candy.  God bless the United States of America.

In the name of Allah, young men at the behest of old men strap on bombs and blow themselves up to go meet him, not giving a shit how many others he takes with him.  Why do the young always die at the hands of the old?  Jew’s hate Muslims. Muslim’s hate Jews.  Christian’s hate Muslims.  Muslim’s hate Christians.  And to think that love was the core of all religions.

There is genocide going on in Darfur and no one really cares.  In Zimbabwe, people are starving to death in a country that was once considered to be the bread basket of Africa.  The country of Iceland is bankrupt.  Great Britain is bailing out its banks to the tune of 87.2 billion dollars on the heels of our 1 trillion dollar bailout.  AIG executives spent $440,000 on a retreat after that company was bailed out.

Vanderbilt is 5-0 in football.  Kimbo Slice was served his bread on Saturday.  FAMU plays in a nationally televised game on Thursday that is not available in Tallahassee.  The Tampa Bay Rays are one series away from playing in the World Series.  I am up at 3:00 a.m. typing, smoking, and drinking coffee.  These times are indeed absurd…
