The world seems to be in its standard operating mode of self-destruction –>
*The UN is its usual befuddled self patting itself on the back over its perpetual incontinence.
*The middle-east and North Korea seems hell-bent intent on keeping the world on the fast track towards WW3.
*World-Wide radical factions of Islam seem to think they can suicide-bomb the rest of the world into religious conversion.
*Mexico and much of South America is busy protecting their governments from hostile takeovers by drug cartels.
*Hugo Chavez is still busy trying to spread his silencer-equipped government of undemocracy.
*Russia seems to be snorting Viagra as it continues to unzip its pants hoping to flash the world with renewed manhood.
*The US and Europe seem focused on bankrupting the nations of democracy.
*China is laughing all the way to the bank as it creates an economic juggernaut on the back of slave labor and world wide insatiability for the inexpensive goods slave labor offers.
*The rest of world is probably watching Dr. Strangelove and busy building bomb shelters as they are caught somewhere between a rock and a hard place awaiting for a final click of the Doomsday clock.
Meanwhile here in the US –>
*US Democrat and Republican politicians are all working hard to make personal and political gains off the BP oil spill instead of working hard to help solve the problem for now and future events.
*Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is back in the spotlight as he takes his Big-Top Circus to the courts.
*The Obama Faux-Hope and Change- Government Team continues to prove – once a Chicago politician always a Chicago politician.
*Our very own 17th district of Illinois Representative, Stupid is as Stupid does-Phil Hare tries to prove his equal to Chicago Politicians as he sought to go all 1984-ballistic on a voter that had the audacity to question Philoblusters pomposity.
*Unions at the National and local levels pretend the self-destruction of the Greek economy is a fairy tale, instead of a lesson to be learned, as they seek to extract more blood from a bloodless embalmed corpse of a US economy.
*And even worse than all of the above, the Cubs are not even playing .500 baseball this season and seem intent on returning to days of the old Cubby Blue June Swoon!
I am sure there is more doom and gloom I could link to and talk about, but the gnats and mosquitoes are biting and I am in a cantankerous mood and wondering on the best place to build a bomb shelter. Or maybe I should just pig out on a chocolate-peanut butter milkshake, some sausage/bell pepper/onion pizza and follow it up with some fried okra, a bowl of beans, cornbread and pickled peppers and tune in Comcast/WGN to see if the Cubs come out of their funk. Sigh – I am sure all the worlds evils would be cured if only the Cubs could win the MLB World Series.
