Must be Friday
What was the tipping point? What was the final straw? For my feline friends here it was lack of cheeseburgers. In other countries it was a stolen election or an assassination or lack of jobs. Idol hands are the devils' workshop you know. Rampant greed with few getting it all and above all no compassion. Maybe it was all headed in this direction and we just didn't see it coming. There were the good years when values went to the clouds and money flowed like a wild river, but not for all. Some had to endure the whims of a dictator and watch silently as he plundered the countrys' wealth. Truth will set you free but be careful what you wish for you just might get it and not like what you see. And now that the shouting has stopped and the flames are almost out it's time to pick up the pieces and make do with what's left. Yes, I know it's not over by a long shot, but I only outline the process. It seems a part of nature as predictable as the setting sun. You could almost set your watch to it. Famine and pestilence death and destruction ignorance and greed grace the pages of history every hundred years or so. And we always fall for the lie of denial, oh that was in the dark ages we're not like that now. But are we? We think nothing of killing another on this planet after all they're a member of (..........). We kill them and cage them and wonder who's next and does it ever stop? A fool's errand would be Shakespeare's reply.
We'd love nothing more than to see life on an even keel but I know that will never happen. Maybe that's just one of the very core items of living on this planet. Call it part of the nature of man. But then how boring would that be if there were no ups or downs ever? I guess there really is a time for all things. And I know that my feline friends will eventually be let out of that cage only to start all over again.
Bank fails: There were four this week in various states.
