I just gotta be me….no matter who it bothers…even if it’s Colonel Sanders

I really do love religion….and not because I believe in it…but because of how it has convinced so many people that “Doing Right” is just a part of being religious and since we opted in at the top of the food chain and morality chain…by definition it gives us a right over just about anything we want to be in charge of….not to mention in the midst of a war…God is on “Our” side…not theirs…even though they think God is on “their” side… what are they thinking…

though if God is on both sides….doesn’t that seem like overusing the word “Check”….

for as “smart” as we are and for as much that has been used and implemented in the name of religion…regardless of the religion…we are not very forgiving…nor are we accepting…understanding…empathetic…compassionate…loving…caring…or anything that even remotely resembles the concept of…LOVE…which call me crazy…but I think religion is brewed in that ideology…sort of…

Some people believe that the earth and all of it’s creatures were given to us by God for our use…to do with what we want and to exploit it to the point of no return…which is where we sit today…this is one of the bumper stickers on my truck:

I mean really…what if Jesus really does show up and is just nothing here but a smoldering heap of what used to be the planet….there’s nobody to save…this is surely a WTF moment….

Global warming…no global warming…GMO’s no GMO’s…God…Allah….A bucket of Original KFC….all of these are just the distractions…Bob Dylan said….not necessarily with regard to the actual weather….”You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows”…and in this case he’s correct..eat a tomato from Walmart….looks like a tomato….red…crunchy…tasteless…and less of a tomato than a tomato should really be….the food we eat is not what it really is described as….the west coast has been polluted by the Fukashima disaster…and it ain’t going away…Cattle are the new canary in the mine….so to speak….take a gander …..if it looks scary….it’s because it is….and Point of No Return…. means just that…adios…hasta la vista….bien camino….

really….take a deep breath of the air around where you live…have a few glasses of water direct from the tap….maybe some fast food…get a blood panel….cheat on your spouse a little more….squeeze as much money as you can from everything you touch…buy more shit…lie more about who you are not what you do to prove who you really are….pretend help is a few cans in a bag at Thanksgiving….keep thinking…”Get a job” to the guy on the corner asking for money….and realize you…me…all of us have played a huge part in making the landscape….look like this….really…just take a look at which way the wind blows…the smoke from the tower….should tell you something…

Our blue recycled container arrived today….I’m quivering with anticipation….and loathing that I am going to fill it up with useless packaging that was designed so I’d buy the product…via visual appeal…and it doesn’t really have to be that way…so my goal is not to fill it…which means I have to continually buy products that don’t rely on how they want me to see it….

We are in a bit of a fix….I like the bumper sticker I’ve seen on a few cars… “Jesus Saves”….well now more than ever is the time for a little bit more than a little bit of saving to happen…

Clearly if people will just open their eyes…get rid of the need to be right bullshit… the sanctimonious attitude….and the idea that someday things are going to be fine….because it said so somewhere….here is the truth…..Colonel Sanders just might be one of the living dead…

so pray hard my little pretties…and hope you are here for the show down…and if not…have coke and a smile….

  1. Henny, pretty funny! All of what you said is so true. I kind of like to think that most of the warriors etc. would be praying for safe return to their families rather than victory, but probably not,,,,,, Tomatoes from wally world are tasteless!!!!! xoxoxox Ellen
