One With Friday the 13th
We're a superstitious lot, aren't we?
If we really want some things to be afraid of this Friday the 13th, here is a list.
1. Stupid legislation coming from underneath the methane gas filled dome. Representative Sally Kern (R- Ridiculous) pulled her frighteningly unconstitutional bills, but sure enough, the douchebaggery continued and someone else authored similar bills. When we don't conquer our fears, they begin to own us. That's exactly what's happening with this new breed of moral police. Their mindset is such that they believe theirs is the most important mission on earth and if you disagree, may you be anathema! That's the kind of stuff Jim Jones and David Koresh were made of. THAT should scare the hell out of you.
3. Health care. It's expensive, owned and operated by insurance and pharmaceutical companies and there is no relief in sight. The poor and working poor are largely screwed by the current system and that's just the way it's going to be.
4. Islamic terror. I don't care if you get offended or not, I'm here to tell you that Islamic terrorism is real and it is a real threat to the world. If you don't believe that, do us all a favor and don't breed. As a matter of fact, get a vasectomy or hysterectomy to make sure that your gene pool stays shallow. Whether you watch the Fox News Channel or PBS, terrorism is a serious threat.
6. Teen suicide. Bullies are everywhere and our kids will experience bullying not only school, but in adulthood as well. We have to prepare our children more effectively, helping to fully comprehend that they have value and a voice. We have to toughen them up a little to deal with the asshat bullies. On the other hands, the parents of bullies who allow it to happen should be dealt with quickly and severely. No more children should die needlessly under our watch.
There are just a few things that truly should scare the shit out of us. We can become one with Friday the 13th, just like every other day and make it subject to us. We are not slaves to time and space, but rather we use it to fulfill ours and others' lives.
Of course, I could be wrong, but I seriously doubt it.
