New Years Day was a blur of wonderful fun, wonderful time with loved ones, more wonderful time with loved ones, A snowy mess of I-70 Mile markers, a Glenwood Springs nap, and a whole lot of Farmer Bros Mini-mart caffeine to grease the wheels home.
I digress; again.......
Thanks to the vigilance of groups like the NRA, the GOP, Al Quaeda, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, The Chamber of Commerce, and The Taliban -every American (whether they're a wack-job or not) has the right to as many guns as they can get their hands on. Unfortunately, firearms are now viewed more as toys than weapons that make you dead. Yesterday in a sporting goods store, I saw a pink .38 with a 6 round clip and a smiley face on the grip. I wanted to cuddle with the damn thing. (Now on sale;30 round clips at Toys-R-US? ) Delbert DumbButt, can buy an camouflageed full-on combat-ready AK-47 to take to family picnics and the mall, but kids don't have a right to trust that they will not be shot on the way to school, at school, or at home. That's flat wrong.
Have we finally eaten enough ammonia-soaked burger and trans-fat pudding and breathed enough CBCs to have make our entire nation functionally retarded? There's some evidence, (but we still got our sunny dispositions)
America is, at present, officially one of the most illiterate and under-performing countries educationally in the developed world, but we've got a mega-strong prospective employee pool for Burger-Kings worldwide to staff from.
Rich people in glass house routinely watch poor people starve beneath them and shake their heads at the callous insensitivity and obvious sloth of the impoverished. Let them eat cake? (I'll bet Marie Antoinette wished she would'a put some of that cake in her pie-hole before she shot off her mouth)
And the real kicker in 2015;
All of these things combined would normally paint a very bleak picture, but....fear not.
Enjoy you're day and don't forget to smile.
Manyana ( later today actually, I'm on a roll)
