god smote me down

i have a bit of an idea of how job felt- minus the boils.... i have been absolutely miserable for the last few days with post nasal drip, sore throat, cough, and swollen glands the size of bull testicles... sigh... i have a feeling that god must be angry with me- i mean how else to explain it other than 'an act of god?' i must admit i have skewered the right quite a bit for their hypocritical, single minded, bigoted, terroristic, dog like devotion to fascist ideology...

oh. shit. i'm not going to get better any time soon am i?

i suppose god is sore at me for skewering the left- that paragon of acquiescing to all things right while embracing the power sucking abilities left behind by their right wing predecessors.....

oh. shit. i'm not going to get better any time soon am i?

america has been america for oh, about 234 years or so- in fact, her 'birthday' is coming up this weekend. it's the holiday where americans can celebrate their independence from british petrolueum- um, i mean the british east india company- um i mean the british empire.... and bask in the knowledge that because a small group of upper middle class merchants didn't want to pay their taxes anymore, they hatched a carefully planned, spontaneous plot dressed as the evil red terrorist hordes to dump a whole boatload of tea out of hundreds- into boston harbor under cover of darkness....

yep. i'm not going to get better any time soon am i?

some of those upper middle class, landowning, slave owning, white guys decided to pen these immortal words to get the whole ball of wax rolling:

'when in the course of human events, it becomes necessary to seize control of your government so that you can assume 100% of the profits from taxing the 'little people', you should do so but only by using ill trained, expendable citizen soldiers to fight for that in your stead.'

or something like that. good to see not much has changed in the last 234 years....

since i know i am not going to get better any time soon, i guess i had better go make some hot..... tea.

My friend, I read about how you are suffering with the summer cold or whatever virus you have taken on. I went through it and it took a few weeks in the desert to sort me out.
But I ain't blaming the big guy. I think he threw up his arms in disgust a long time ago. Hell, not even the right wing christian nuts can be happy about all that is happening, they just think they are because they get all euphoric with group prayer. The others do it in the bar. Same crap, same results, different vehicle.
Folks like you and me that don't drink and don't pray have it tough. But the guessing game as to where we will spend eternity is the same: "No one really knows"
Just take care of yourself and hold out for the end times. I get the feeling that how we think it's gonna be is what we'll find out it is.

Peace.
