INDIFFERENCE (SOS)

Tags

, ,

I HAVE NO RELICS OF WHERE I’VE BEEN

OR PEOPLE I’VE MET OR THINGS I’VE SEEN

FOR ALL THAT I HAVE SEEN I’M UNIMPRESSED WITH

AND ALL THAT I FORSEE I’M DEPRESSED WITH

WHEN I WAS BORN I SURE DID CRY

I SURE WILL LAUGH WHEN I DIE

CAUSE I’M SICK OF THE SOS

I AM WHERE I AM THROUGH CIRCUMSTANCE

IT WAS NOT PART OF A MASTER PLAN

MAKING MY WAY THROUGH THIS CRAZY WORLD

WHERE ALL THAT MATTERS IS TRIVIAL

EVERYWHERE IS THE SAME AS THIS

THERE IS’NT ANY DIFFERENCE

JUST MORE OF THE SOS

I TRAVEL ALONG NOT CARING WHAT GOES ON

OR WHO IS PULLING THE STRINGS

I DON’T DWELL IN THE PAST AND I’M UNCONCERNED

BY WHAT THE FUTURE MIGHT BRING

I’M SICK OF WORK I’M SICK OF PLAY

I’M SICK OF LIVING DAY TO DAY

I’M SICK OF THE SOS

I HAVE NO ILLUSIONS OR GRAND SCHEMES

IN A WORLD THAT DOES NOT CARE

EITHER I’M GOING TO OR COMING FROM

AS I GET FROM HERE TO THERE

LIFE IS SO FULL OF CRAP

WAITING FOR THE DAY I CAN LOOK BACK AND LAUGH

CAUSE I’M SICK OF THE SOS

MAN OF CONSTANT CONFUSION

I’M IN A STATE OF CONSTANT CONFUSION

I CAN’T MAKE UP MY MIND

THE WHOLE WORLD IS IN CHAOS

CONFUSION IS A SIGN OF OUR TIMES

FORCED TO LIVE WITH MISCONCEPTIONS

HALF TRUTHS AND OUTRIGHT LIES

WHERE NOTHING IS CLEAR

BLACK AND WHITE OR CUT AND DRY

WITH SO MUCH MISINFORMATION

I DON’T UNDERSTAND A THING

ALL THE FACTS WE’RE GIVEN

COEXISTING WITH SO MUCH SPIN

WE HAVE TO READ BETWEEN THE LINES

TO FIND OUT WHAT IT MEANS

BUT THE LINES ARE SO BLURRED

NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS

WITH OPINIONS AND POINTS OF VIEW

WE GET IT FROM ALL SIDES

SPIN DOCTORS AND PUNDITS

OH HELL, I CAN’T DECIDE

HOW DOES ANYTHING MAKE SENSE

WHEN EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE RIGHT

DO WE CONDEMN THEM OR EMBRACE THEM

OR SHOULD WE RUN AND HIDE

SHOULD WE IGNORE THE DEBATE

AND PASS ALONG THE BLAME

WE CAN’T SEPARATE FACT FROM FICTION

ARE THEY DIFFERENT OR THE SAME

WHO CAN WE TRUST

WHEN EVERYONE IS ON THE TAKE

I’M SO CONSUMED WITH APATHY

WHAT DIFFERENCE WILL IT MAKE

SOMETIMES I DON’T WANT TO KNOW

WHAT ALL THIS MUST MEAN

THE ONLY THING I’M SURE OF IS

I’M NOT SURE OF ANYTHING

Take them out and shoot them

People, who should be taken out and shot,

THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT INSIST ON HAVING A CELL PHONE, GLUED TO THEIR EAR ALL DAY LONG. AND THEY HAVE THE NASTY HABIT, OF SCREAMING THEIR CONVERSATIONS SO LOUD, THE WHOLE NEIGHBORHOOD CAN HEAR THEM. AND THEY DO THIS IN CONFINED SPACES LIKE, ELEVATORS, RESTAURANTS, BUSES, and TRAINS.

ALL I CAN SAY IS, “Take ‘em out and shoot ‘em”

Presumptions

Tags

, , , , , , ,

It is presumptuous of man, to think he can speak to god, through god, for god, or in god’s name.

It is presumptions of man to think he can make pronouncements, proclamations, or laws in gods name.

If there is a God, god is nothing like what man has imagined god to be.

God is nothing like what is written in scriptures.

God is simply man’s explanation, for everything he cannot explain.

Many people who claim to believe that the bible is the word of god, have hardly read a word of it

If the bible is the word of god, why does god’s word need so much interpretation and clarification? Does the god of the bible speak in riddles?

The Threat

Tags

, , , , , , ,

During the cold war we had, the Communist “threat”.

This kept the merchants of death fat and happy and thriving for 50 some years.

It was good times, we needed a huge military budget to offset this “threat”.

Whenever someone wanted more money for the military industrial complex, all they had to do was point out this obvious “threat”. Damn commies, gotta stop them.

If someone had the nerve to object to the great amount of money pouring into the military, they were drowned out by the loud voices that screamed, “He is soft on defense”.

This tactic always worked, because no one could afford to be “soft on defense”, and hope to be reelected. How could anyone not want to defend their country?

But then a dark cloud fell over the military industrial complex with the break up of the Soviet Union. My god, no more “threat”. What to do, better find a new one fast.

Of course they did, we had the threat of Iraq, (not once, but twice), and Yugoslavia (kind of), Afghanistan, which finally gave us the greatest threat of all, “Terrorism”. This should keep the merchants of death and the military industrial complex fat and happy for another 50 + years.

Prayers

Tags

, , , , , , ,

For thousands of years people have prayed to all sorts of gods, deities, saints etc.

They pray for the end of sickness and disease, the end of wars and suffering, etc.

Yet, all these things persist. What gives?

If a person is sick and/or near death, everyone prays for their recovery. If the person passes away, it was gods will, if they recover, god answered their prayers.

If their prayers are answered, they are reinforced with the belief in the power of prayer. Not discouraged in the thousands of times their prayers were not answered.

THERE IS ONE COMMON THREAD I HAVE FOUND IN ALL RELIGIONS, AND THAT IS “PRAYER”. EVERYONE EVERYWHERE CALLS ON GOD OR SOMETHING SIMILAR, TO INTERVENE ON THEIR BEHALF, IN THE FORM OF PRAYER.

PRAYER IS UNIVERSAL, EVEN WITH  NON BELIEVERS.

HAS IT EVER OCCURRED TO THEM, THAT WHEN YOU PRAY, YOU ARE GOING AGAINST THE WILL OF GOD?

BY PRAYING, YOU ARE CONTRADICTING GOD. YOU WANT GOD TO DO THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT HE IS DOING.

IF THERE IS A DROUGHT, YOU PRAY FOR RAIN.

DID NOT GOD ORDAIN A DROUGHT

IF THERE IS A WAR, YOU PRAY FOR PEACE

DID NOT GOD ORDAIN A WAR

SOMEONE IS SICK, YOU PRAY FOR THEM TO GET WELL

DID NOT GOD ORDAIN A SICKNESS

IF YOU ARE POOR, YOU PRAY TO BE RICH

DID NOT GOD ORDAIN POVERTY

AND MOST PRAYERS ARE SELFISH AND SELF-SERVING.

SO BY PRAYING FOR THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT GOD HAS ORDAINED, MAYBE YOU ARE ACTUALLY PISSING HIM OFF. WHO ARE YOU TO QUESTION GOD AND HIS WORKS.

Political commentary

Tags

, , , , , , ,

The members of Congress, the lawmakers, mostly lawyers, make the laws, always with enough loopholes, so that they can circumvent the law.

Ethics reform legislation is a classic example of making a law, with plenty of loopholes to do what the law says they should not do.

Then they go around bragging that they have ethics.

How can we admire and respect these people, when they so blatantly abuse their positions and power.

HOW MANY PEOPLE DOES IT TAKE TO DESTROY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES:

435 IN HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

100 IN SENATE

9 IN SUPREME COURT

1 PRESIDENT.

WHY, IT TAKES A MERE 545 PEOPLE TO UTTERLY DESTROY OUR NATION.

(How can so few, cause so much grief, for so many)

OF COURSE THEY GET HELP FROM CORPORATE AMERICA, AND THE FEDERAL RESERVE,

AND THEY ARE DOING AN EXCELLENT JOB

Crazy Talk

Tags

, , , , , , ,

We have a tendency, to label one another.

We all see and hear the same things, but interpret them differently.

We say the letter “o”, when we mean the number zero.

It is hard to judge anything, unless you detach yourself from it.

Good intentions, lead to bad decisions.

When you are young, and have your whole life in front of you, you are reckless,

when you are older, with most of your life behind you, you are cautious.

Some people are our mentors, and some people are our tormentors.

Your whole life is determined, by how much you were conditioned as a child.

Before we all become enlightened, and all knowing, we will destroy ourselves first.

We are more reactive, than proactive.

We need to be reminded, that we are open minded.

Preconceived notions, and preconceptions, lead to false assumptions.

All the food we eat, has been tampered with.

We can become immune to suffering, and pain.

Swearing and slang, has become basic American English.

Misconceptions, often become part of conventional wisdom.
