The Last Breath Before The Crash
It’s time to call Bullshit.
It’s the last breath before the crash bang boom! You can feel it…. the lunge that money is making to hold on to power… the final dive upwards before life turns for the darker side of the moon. The peaking of life on earth, before growth can no longer hang on.
And for so long now, the US economy has been the leader of life… the most growth, the fastest and most tippity top of earth’s capacity to hold on. All has been swell for a long time, Beave! And now, we start the slide downward. Now it gets dangerous and ugly. But there is always hope for humanity. It will come when money is abolished and we all conserve and share energy and water while we quickly figure out how to get along.
But that won’t happen without violence from someone. I just can’t help feeling that enough humans are humbled yet… someone has to die first, according to the macho men running the world. That’s why this week Republicans are trying a blitz, making 4 major plays at once, and not all of them are working. They are starting to lose, realy, really bad and are getting frustrated.
“Let’s take a look at the scoreboard, Pat.” Since coming back from halftime, Democrats have taken the lead from republicans, and are leading with a good spread of 1 female speaker of the house and a 1 black guy with potential (NOTE: This is only cynicism. I do not profess sexism or racism). The Democratic combination plays have Republican Coach Dick Cheney and his star QB George Bush pretty rattled. Add in the fact the Democratic defense just sacked Bush this week with the Scooter Libby trial, and you can see why the Repubs have turned up the heat.
Well, what we have here John is a blitz run by the Republicans against democracy by simultaneously attacking National Public Radio, and Speaker of the House Nanci Pelosi, and a changing out of their offensive lineup.
You’re sure right Bob. Just looking at this offense shows how determined the Repubs are right now. Add in that their defensive tackles just blocked the Iraq War debate and we start to understand why all these hit pieces and aggressive moves are being made. Add in that we know the playbook and have a sneak peak of their upcoming big move, and you understand just how tight this game is.
“Pat, you know, these is still just the final game between our home teams, don’t forget the world chanpionships are going on at the same time and China, Russia and Iran are all formidable opponents. And no one knows just what the Wildcard team is planning over in Israel.”
All I can say this this point is that humanity had better wake up to the danger we are all in. We can handle global warming and prevent massive starvation, famine, and war. All we need to do is put down the guns and work together. If not, someone is going to die soon, if not all of us.
That’s why I’m going to go turn on some music. If aramageddon is what happens every time a society crashes, this sucker looks to be the biggest one our civilization has ever faced. You never know when it’s your last day to dance!
Today’s Idea: Introduce legislation into Congress to force credit card manufacturers to use something other than plastic. The energy we are depleting from making all the plastic used in Credit Cards is leading us to war, therefore for our own national security we should ban the use of plastic in the credit system.
