It’s coming. I can feel it in my bones, I can scent it on the air. The psychological graffiti is all over the walls. Something is going to happen this year, and it’s not going to be pretty. Keep in mind that the 10th anniversary of 9-11 is this year, and we all know how big on date and anniversary significance the extremists are. I’d put good money on them doing something VERY heinous this year.
Ill will is all over the place. All you have to do is look at the front page of your newspaper, watch the 10 or 11 o’clock news or log into FoxNews or CNN on the web. Anyone can see that there’s blood on the waters, and the sharks are circling in ever greater numbers. From Egypt to Tunisia, from here in the U.S. to every other point on the globe, someone is seriously fu&^ing with someone. Agitation is the “soup du jour” that everyone is being treated to a bowlful of these days.
Just short of ten years ago, we had one of our darkest days. In the hours and days that followed, the whole WORLD, save for a few morons in the middle east, pulled together. We had the good will of the global community. Our country stood united in both its anguish, and its resolve. Neighbors were helping neighbors again. People were talking instead of arguing. For just a few minutes there, we WERE the UNITED States of America.
Now ten years later, we have a president without much of a clue, we have a crappy economy in full recession, moms and dads murdering their kids for back-talking or mispronouncing words, young adults taking shots at politicians, more selfishness than there ever was before 9-11, and a world that’s being Fed-Ex’ed to hell in a rusty handcart. NO ONE learned from tragedy. No lessons were taken away from it. All we did was get meaner.
This storm WILL happen, folks. Anyone who simply won’t or can’t see the signs is just willfully ignorant. Ignorance will NOT be bliss. The worst part about this is that it could have been prevented. If we could have worked through our differences, been a bit more mature and started caring more about our world and what really matters than who wins the next fracking American Idol, maybe we’d be in a better place right now. But no, that didn’t happen, and the world will continue spinning out of control. When the stormfront hits it will take everyone by surprise, and that’s the saddest part. We will look up to the sky and ask God “WHY!?”, because we’re too dumbed down to realize that we did it to ourselves.
