A Brother From Another Mother
At one time I was filled with a fiery outrage at the all the incredibly stupid people in power running around determining the fate of humanity. Filled with a righteous anger I would post incredibly vicious rants attacking the idiots intent on sending us all to hell or extinction, which to me is the same thing. I was always aware that my tidbits of verbal offal were empty fits whose effects on the greater stage the human comedy was performed were sub-nanoscopic blips in a world where those with money play insane puppet-masters controlling what is said and heard.
Eventually my outrage played out leaving me to daydream of warp drive starships and extremely sudden evolutionary jumps where a new species of humans realize the games being played with our future and the planet and who send our shadowy masters to some cold and desolate asteroid. Even better a certain scene from the Batman movie "The Dark Knight" still comes to mind where the diabolical Joker breaks a pool stick in two and tells two defeated crime lords to fight it out with the winner allowed to live. For my own personal mental entertainment I often envision Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity playing the role of those defeated crime lords. Yeah, my mental state is not quite right but I have to ask the question "Why so serious?"
Be that as it may rational behavior, while being slightly boring, is my usual frame of mind no matter what my wife and certain other family members might say. Because of that and a certain exhaustion in dealing with idiots I have to search for others who still have that fire in the belly. Today as I was wasting valuable time surfing the internet I stopped to read the latest post published by my friend, Life As I Know it Now, and found a brother from another mother.
