The Global Outrage of an Educated Man......vol.63
It's been a long time coming and for that I have no apologies. I have been dealing with the sadness and the pain of love given, love received and love lost. I have been to the top of the mountain top and seen the rubble of what was once a proud kingdom of the proof of the almighty's omnipotence. All of that could be said for the once proud and powerful Notre Dame football storied past. I have been lost and found. I have been down and out. I have said goodbye to a loved one and found the strength and the beauty in the acceptance of patience and the resilience of the splendor of new starts and new relationships. The simplicity of possibilties of the morning busride and the evening concert with someone who was once your teacher. The summer has come to an end and the falling of leaves and the sounds of football and apples rolling on the lawns and leaves being shuffled through by children on their way to school and giggling and laughing and deciding which Halloween costumes to wear can be heard from block to block and household to household. I am walking a line down which I have no idea where it will end. I am like you and that we have no answers and only questions. We only start and end and finish and begin. I feel like a politician without a microphone. A politician without the money to get his face on the nightly news. Because if you can't raise a half a billion dollars, you can't get your point across. You cannot be a man of the people, by the people and for the people. You're just another puppet for the multinationals and their ever increasing thirst for natural resources and the wars that fund them. Case in point people, our puppet will be speaking at the UN on Tuesday and will be ratcheting up the case for the ever increasing alarmist bell ringing endorsement of military force against Iran. We have to realize that we are living in a world gone mad. We are in "Network" without Peter Finch. I will play that part of screaming "I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!!" We live in a world where evangelicals want to bring about the prophecies of the book of Revelations. They want a whore of Babylon and we just may get Hillary instead. They want to bring about Armageddon in the name of Freedom for all. Bombs in the guise of free choices. I have no qualms with any of this. I just want people to realize what is happening and why. We have no control over any of this. Or so were told. We are told that this is the way it is and that this is the way it has to be. But what about hope? What about standing up to ignorance and tyranny? Because if we don't take a stand and say enough is enough, we're all going to get the chip. They already are doing it to your pets. Your children are next. And you may say I'm crazy and that may be true, but I'd rather be crazy than stupid and paranoia isn't paranoia when it's true.
Things are changing. People are changing. Times are changing. The quickening is happening and we can't get anywhere, anything or anyone fast enough. December 22nd, 2012 is just around the corner. Be prepared. The moon is waning.
Make your little one a shining star! Shine on!
