End of Days

I hate washing dishes so much I use paper plates most of the time. That’s one of the few horribly wasteful things I do that’s not good for the environment or my wallet.

I bet we all do stuff like this, and I bet if we stopped, the world would be a better place. However, when one reads terrifying things in the middle of the night due to insomnia, well, one realizes there’s not a lot the individual can do anymore to change the course of events  that is inevitably pushing us toward the abyss.

It doesn’t take a genius to know that the shit is about to hit the fan. What’s happening in the financial sector of our world is being reflected in natural resources, as well: a major correction is coming and it won’t be pretty. That’s putting it mildly, by the way. “Won’t be pretty” is a euphemism for “all hell’s gonna break loose.”

This article makes it sound as if things could be turned around if only TPTB would get their heads out of their ass and stop sucking up to the rich. They’ll never do it though, for two reasons: 1) the politicians are almost as rich as the corporations that have bought them, and 2) they don’t give a shit about the people (us) who made them wealthy. They have their hiding places and bunkers set up and ready, where they will retire until the dust settles.

It’s sad but true. We are merely chips they can throw away when things get bad, i.e., we’ll have to fend for ourselves. What will that mean? Hard times, my friends. Times so hard, many of us will not live through it.

Rather depressing news for a Saturday morning, yes? I can’t help wondering why the End of Days isn’t being talked about more in the media. Is it because they, too, feel nothing can change our course, so why panic ‘the little people?’

The government is not my parent. I don’t look to them to keep me safe, pat me on the head, or feed me fairy tales. That’s what religion does for people who don’t want to think, who want to remain children forever.

I expect our politicans–our leaders, damn it!–to deal with real problems that affect my life, and if that means we have to tighten our belts now to prevent total meltdown later, then goddamn DO IT. That’s why we elected you. That’s why you get to live a lifestyle we peons can only dream of (one I definitely wouldn’t pay for if given the choice, because what makes them so much better than us?).

What a man says and does, not how large is damn bank account is, is how I judge a man. The people currently in congress? WASTE OF SPACE! We need visionaries there now, and quickly. Vote all the dead weight out and at least try to put people there who will work to preserve as much of our society as they can.

In the meantime, pretty much knowing the same old useless dicks will keep getting voted into office and no real change will happen before it’s too late, it’s time to Party Like it’s 1999, because the end of days is almost here, my friends. Enjoy things while you can.
