The End Is Near
While I expected the national patience for being locked down to end about …now… I never expected that decision to be framed the way it is.
It’s now being presented as my patriotic duty to be willing to die from the coronavirus to preserve the American economy and our way of life.
Patriotism has never been my strong suit, but I understand the sentiment.
At the same time, we’re being introduced to new sets of numbers to try to discern what an “acceptable” number of deaths will be to get people back to work.
Is it a quarter million or half a million?
As many as it takes as long as it’s no one I care about?
Some folks have got their stimulus checks, others have not…the IRS website is useless.
Some have filed for unemployment…minimum wage earners who have are now making twice as much from that as they did when they were working.
Others have been unable to file at all as the technology and government labor force have been blasted into chaos and they teeter on the edge of financial destruction.
Small business loans have already run out of money, the usual beneficiaries never do.
There are no experts, everyone’s an expert.
You’re an expert? Just understand that my opinion is as valid as your expertise because that’s the way it works, buddy.
Many take the cryptic words of an imaginary seer named “Q” as Gospel…I laugh and wish they wore t-shirts with a “Q” on them so I could know who to run from.
You would think that in a country with this much expertise from every living creature on every subject that we would always prosper in every way.
Alas, the “deep state” has rendered us impotent…
What I have now decided to call the “civic church”, that is the public face of American Christianity… is more interested in being the bastion of political liberty (as they define it) than the source of enduring faith.
Love of God, country, and especially money…a red, white, and blue ribbon for your bible with any donation.
You must make a confession of party and a confession of faith…
Online streaming numbers are the new measure that has replaced the counting of arses in the pews.
Production values are key…those who bought HD cameras when they could shall prosper.
I do not recognize this “church”, but it doesn’t recognize me either…
Bill Gates is the anti-Christ because he wants to develop a vaccine against the plague…be aware that I will be the first in line to take the mark of the weak eyed beast.
Relationships that survived the strain of our other divisions are being broken by this new source of strife.
You must hate who I hate or I hate you….and all the Lord’s children said…amen.
Leadership on every level is just another set of clowns getting off the bus at different stops.
Yes, the end is near.
Did I mention the drought?
If the end is not near, then ends are.
Those things that are ending will make us pine for the end of it all.
Come quickly, Lord Jesus…before the rest of our idols fail…
