I have to tell you, I’m feeling a wee bit cranky today. Maybe I need to stop paying attention to the news. It could be a result of the relentless heat here in Bucks County. Or, maybe I just feel like being cranky. You tell me.
What is it with people who feel the need to post private thoughts and information on Facebook? Things like:
- My (insert relative) is having prostate surgery in the morning.
- Feeling worthless today.
- I might have just broken my (insert bone here).
- I think I might have really screwed up this time.
- You won’t believe how drunk I got last night.
I could go on but I’ll spare you. I thought maybe this kind of behavior was only from the young’uns who seem to have a constant craving for attention. But, no, the behavior doesn’t seem age specific.
Here’s an idea. If you really need this much attention then go buy a bunch of mirrors and hang them where you’ll always have one handy. Hopefully, that will solve your craving for attention.
We are a bunch of fools being misdirected by the politicians from the things they don’t want us to think about. Things like wars, torture, unemployment, cost of food, health care, social security, and the number one priority in the hearts and minds of all politicians – getting reelected.
Don’t you just love clicking on a website only to have an advertisement complete with blaring sound automatically start playing? Ad agencies and companies creating these stupid autos just don’t get how offended people feel when this happens. They click off the site. Immediately.
But, here is what I wonder. Do the morons who convince companies that this is good advertising count that momentary visit as a “view?” I bet they do while hiding just how fast we all disappear from the person paying the freight.
If there is a heaven then there is a very special place reserved for people who rescue and work with the homeless. Here is one way you can help.
I couldn’t help but think of the challenges people face living on the street as I heard all the reasons why the Republicans find the idea of a tax increase (at least for the wealthy) an anathema. It brought to mind the words of our last president spoken at a dinner for his supporters.
“This is an impressive crowd — the haves and the have-mores.”
And, Jim, before you go sending me another flaming email about my concern for the needy; you need to think about this. Plenty in that crowd of “haves and have-mores” didn’t do a damn thing to deserve their status, wealth, and power other than preserving what was bequeathed to them.
And, many of the homeless on the streets didn’t do anything to deserve their fate either.
Told you I was feeling cranky today.
