Hey friends and neighbors, I'm just sitting here in my truck waiting on my slot in a tanker wash and looking over the news over at the Drudge Report. Damned scary time we live in. Damned scary time to have the weakest presidency in my memory "leading" the free world right now. Just looking at the news there are continuing problems in Egypt, China, Morrocco, Bahrain, Algiers, Yemen, and Tunisia.
Last year, rioters tried to burn Greece to the ground and a general state of unrest was felt through all of the EU. This year, North Africa and the middle east is burning and the contagion seems to be trying to gain a foot hold here in the U.S.
All of this unrest and chaos begs a very simple question of me: "What the HELL is going on?"
We've got the most self destructive administration in history fiddling while the world burns. Meanwhile, the First Lady tells everyone what they can and can't eat while stuffing her face with a meal that would feed a third world family for a week. Our nation is fighting itself while the world collapses and I am trying to understand why we can't seem to get our house in order. If we do not face the coming fire storm with a united front, we will not survive the conflagration. We'll burn the same as the other nations are.
On the other hand, those that survive will be those most suited to survive, so maybe that's not such a bad way to go. At some point every great forest has to burn to get rid of the dead wood and underbrush that chokes out productive growth. Perhaps it's time for that kind of cleansing here. To remove the chaff, so to speak.
