Interesting Times

So much unrest and uncertainty in the world.

Russia's economy is tanking due to sanctions so Putin is ripping off his shirt and channeling his inner Cossack.

Mooslims are slaughtering school children... again.

The NSA is interpreting the skidmarks on our underwear.

There's another beaner tsunami approaching our southern border.

Congress don't give a shit as they have already stolen everything that wasn't nailed down since Teddy Roosevelt was President.

Meanwhile, the idiot in the White House can't break himself away from ESPN.

Unsettled times remind me of when I was an undergrad. We didn't trust the government then and don't trust it now.

I never trusted the government even when I was the government man.

Trust? Government?

I'm with LL. The problem is, too many who said they didn't trust the government sold out. If they had just taken the work, but kept their cynicism, we wouldn't be anywhere near where we are today.

But then, many of the hippies who said they didn't trust the government were the very ones who always wished to enlarge the government to make the world a better place. Idealism and government are a murderous mix. You can't make others better, you can only make yourself better, then use that as a springboard. If you hate yourself, there is no way you are helping your fellow man, except... to that way of thinking... by pushing him into an oven. Evil starts at never starting at home.

There is a lot flying under a lot of people's radars.

With all of the things we've heard on the news lately, I'm beginning to think that maybe government isn't our friend.
