Mother Nature Assumes Charge;

Well, fellow humans, we had a million + children out in the streets, calling out to our so-called Leaders; The World is Burning, do something! Ho Hum, business as usual, get your young asses back in brainwashing school, brats…..So we, as usual, refused to listen to our “Beloved Children”…..Merrily, Merrily, we roll along, ripping up our one and only home for Profit, the future be damned…..The Earth looks now like a Giant Trash Can, so what? The bucks keep rolling into our coffers…………………….~~~~~Well, says Mother Earth, if the humans will not live up to their responsibilities, I will have to teach them a lesson…..So out of nothing she fabricates a tiny little virus, invisible to the naked eye, and says: “Sic em, boy!” And thus she accomplishes what years of futile protests failed to accomplish, and the World eating machine begins to falter, and then to shut down…..The Airplanes are parked in row upon row, the Cruise Ships are tied up at the piers, the cars stay in the garage, and The Air is once again almost Breathable! That over-inflated Stock Market watch’s their trillions of imaginary dollars evaporate into thin air…..Humans are confined to quarters, forced, maybe, to begin to talk to one another……………………………………………………………………………Or Not, perhaps they have lost the fine old art of discourse, lost forever in endless trivia on those “Magic” little screens; “Whas, up,Bro?” “Hey man, same ole, same ole.” To quote Kurt Vonnegut; “And so it goes.” And our brave Leaders say; “Those Consumers are not Consuming, something must be done, we cannot have the rich becoming less rich.” “Oh! we will just bail them out, after all we will all be dead before the bill for this comes due.” For example, remember G.W. Bush after 9/11? “Just get out there and shop folks.” While he proceeded to launch us into a ‘Forever War’……Trillions of our national treasure spent, millions of lives lost, but the Military/Industrial complex was in seventh heaven………………………………………………..~~~~~People huddling in their homes, scared to death by the powers that be, and a little tiny virus, that so far has not even come close to causing as many deaths as Malaria & the Flu…..This makes me laugh & laugh; “Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people.” H. L. Mencken………………………………………………………………………………..~~~~~Perhaps, just perhaps this is the time to rethink our priorities in life, like pay off that debt load, stop being a “Good Consumer” Start thinking for yourselves, and begin to realize how good ‘The Simple Life’ can be…..Think about it!
