I remember once, oh 35 years ago or so, some clueless talking head on the evening news said that apples were… toxic. Apples!
And while you don’t hear that so much anymore, what’s popular now is that the ice caps are melting, meaning we near the annihilation of the human race. I’m figuring we only got another 100,000 years.
And US politicians claim we’re in a great mess because of our debt and immigration and race issues and foreign affairs and Social Security and super-sized sodas and welfare programs and skin heads and police brutality.
And Muslim cutting the heads off the people over there.
And then men who call themselves my friends send me photos of crazy people dressed in pink tutus at the local Wal-Mart.
Plus there’s mad cow disease… commodes that don’t flush good… air bags don’t work… Flint water’s bad.
And my taxes are goin’ up. And there are virus carrying mosquitos that screw with nature’s master designs.
And… and… now 20 times every week-end we are encouraged on TV to buy this particular medicine to help prevent streptococcus pneumonia.
I listen in awe. It’s like they’ve gone out and invented a disease that they can cure. One I personally haven’t heard of in the first 73 years of my life.
And it’s like we should believe them…. After also hearing 20 times a week-end about some medicine that’ll do you some good… but has all these enormously bad side effects… like “suicide thoughts or tendencies.”
Listen to me friends, don’t take any medicine that might make you think about killing yourself. It may get rid of that headache, sure, but you’ll be dead.
I can just imagine in the year 2200, or however they will measure time then, something that replaces the human race will be saying the American society was getting by when all of a sudden in 2016 the streptococcus epidemic struck, the ice caps melted and all the air bags deployed and humans disappeared. Just like the dinosaurs, only different.
Streptococcus ! You can’t pronounce it either can you? And like me you have no idea what it is?
We’re lost in a world we don’t understand and live in fear of disease-words we can’t pronounce.
Now on another front:
Another Famous American Converts to Islam
It’s becoming a very scary world out there…
It was announced today that Buckwheat, of Our Gang fame, has converted to the Muslim faith and changed his name to ‘Kareem of Wheat’.
Let’s just hope he doesn’t become a cereal killer…
And this final thought to this pouty posting… Chezy does a TV commercial where this fellow touts Chezy winning the “JD Powers Initial Quality Award” since forever, and like a magician with some misdirection action, there’s a clanging of metal on metal and years and years of Chezy cars are presented – also as winners of the “JD Poers Initial Quality Award.”
Yea? Well who ‘da hell is JD Powers, and what exactly is Initial Quality?
Let me address the last part of this first. Initial Quality. Sounds like, what’s the best looking new car rolling off car lots nowsaday? Not what the best car a year from purchase, but what’s the best quality car when you buy it. And what does quality mean here in this context? Seems suspiciously vague.
So OK who is JD Powers? That’s undoubtedly James David Powers III, who started up a global marketing firm in 1968 to help promote different products. His company was bought out first by McGraw Hill Financial and then by some mysterious “XIO group” in 2016… the time these Chevy commercials started coming about the “JD Powers initial quality award.”
You can read anything into that that you want.
I’m just saying.
