Random Thought of the Day

We should be long past applauding politicians of any hue: they got us into this mess. The best deserve a probationary opportunity to prove themselves, the worst should be in jail. It is questionable whether the present political system can survive the coming crisis. Whatever the solution, teenage swooning sentimentality over a celebrity cult has no part in it.

I casually asked someone at work (one of the teenage-swooner types) how they were doing now that we've experienced the second coming of Christ (savior to the modern world, etc.) and you'd have thought my head was spinning while spewing filth. Geez!

It's interesting to see the mesmerized zealotry of so many otherwise non-religious people. It's officially creepy.

Its not applauding, Its "lauding" without the apples.
