Gloom and doom Wednesday

The End of the World as we know it, but I Feel Passable, pt 1: Max out those credit cards, no one is going to be around to collect

Listening to the yak-jocks on TV, particularly Glen Beck, reading about global warming, and watching the Discovery Channel has led me to believe that the end of the world is nigh. Yes, the four horsemen are saddlin’ up.

Glen Beck is convinced Armageddon starts on 22 Aug. Who knows, he may be right. With a zealot like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in charge of Iran and nuke capability just a country away in Pakistan (by the way, Pakistan is not your friend), anything could happen. The fact the Iranian government is openly hostile towards the US and especially Israel is no secret, ol’ Mahmoud takes every opportunity to make that clear. Couple the rise of a society of folks that think strapping yourself into a Fiat with a load of C4 will be rewarded in the great beyond, and a map of who owns the petroleum we depend on and it doesn’t take much to see we are in a tough spot.

Hugo Chavez the president of Venezula also takes every opportunity to show his animosity towards the US he gets and it wouldn’t take much for him to pinch off the oil. Maybe his hatred is justified; I have heard all Americans are assholes - that was posetd on aBlog so it must be true. Shutting the flow of oil down in concert with a large scale attack could bring our economy crashing down. Chavez paid a visit to Iran recently. Just a random fact, mind you. Remember, wildcat traders sitting around at home in their underware trading stocks govern our economy – it isn’t going to take much to make Timmy Day-trader choke.

We came close with some ex-patriot Pakistanis planning to blow up aircraft with the contents of their Big Gulp and Starbucks carry-on (Did I mention Pakistan is not your friend?). What chance do you have against some snapper-head that wants to die and take as many of the unwashed with him as possible? Most Westerners can’t even comprehend the notion. There may be an element of myth to this, however, as I don’t see Bin Laden or any of the Black Turbans behind the wheel of any of those Fiats, making it seem as though it is ok to die for your religion as long as you are just a minion and not one of the upper crust. At least Koresh went down with his ship.

To be fair, there are plenty of Christian nutters and don’t forget the various cults. Anyone whose politics and religion are the same is a danger to the rest of us – Pat Robertson, David Koresh, and Aum Shinri Kyo, (the Japanese cult that staged nerve gas attacks in the subway), are prime examples. There are also plenty of neo-nazi black panther peta kinds of loonies waiting in the wings to do some damage.

Next time: Mother Nature’s Comin’ to Town, and She’s Pissed…

Once upon a time I lived next door to a Kigndom Hall of the Jehovah's witness. Not once, but twice the fools sat up all night waiting for the end of the world based on some one's prediction. A whole hallful of sleepy witnesses filed out those two mornings. This was all pre 1980. And here we all still are...

The guys with the sandwich board signs will be calling for us all to repent until that giant comet comes and crashes into the earth leaving the penguins and polar bears to fight it out. Until then, spend wisely. The Visa bill wil be due on Sept.1.

FS: Remember the cult the committed suicide during Haley’s comet in the belief an alien race was coming to take them away? All I remember about the deal was they all had new sneaks for the trip.
JIN: Y2K!! Won’t be around in 3k when they will undoubtedly go through the same drill, that is if the world ain’t over on 22 Aug.
Keshi: Cult people and zealots of any stripe scare me.
DM: Probably be best to be up in the Swiss Alps – doesn’t your military have them riddle with secret tunnels? – you could hide out…

Becky: You could promise him a really expensive sports car for your anniversary and not have to worry about actually buying it for him!
