Thoughts on the Edge of Madness
Waiting for the government shutdown . . . if I had a Biblical super power, I’d like to be able to cause tongues to cleave to the roofs of certain mouths. A rain of frogs and serpents in the House might be a nice diversion too
A Facebook ‘friend’ was fulminating about the current administration ‘telling us what we can and can’t eat and forcing us to buy insurance while all the time we the taxpayers are buying the food Obama’s kids eat as well as paying for the blond highlights in Michelle Obama’s hair.’
The frothing-at-the-mouth hurts. I really wanted to defriend this woman but first I wanted to ask if she’d gotten her panties in a bunch over the bill for President Reagan’s Grecian Formula. Or begrudged the Bush twins the food in their mouths.
I didn’t do either. I've tried to adhere to a policy of not defriending people just because I disagree with them. In fact, I think that the only person I’ve defriended on FB was a high school friend with whom I’d had some heated but polite exchanges. Then he sent me a racist joke. It wasn’t even funny. That did it.
Still waiting… expecting that at any moment, Ted Cruz will hold up a fluffy kitten, put a gun to its head, and say, “Defund Obamacare or the Kitten gets it
Send in the frogs and serpents – the clowns are already there.
