911: Barracuda, The Four Horseman of The Apocalypse

“Never tell God you don’t like one of his creations.”—Anonymous

So, they call Sarah Palin the “Barracuda”, or at least they play that song by Heart, against Heart’s will, to describe the potential VP.  Do you know how big the brain of a Barracuda is?  Not very big.  Vicious, not smart.

As we near 911/08, California’s unemployment rate has hit 7.3%.  Last July the unemployment rate in Cal was 5.4%.  Bush’s policies at work.  A war economy.  The Four Horseman, Conquest, War, Famine, & Death are riding high.

Children are having nightmares about Global Warming.  That’s the world they will inherit and they know it.  The children watch TV.

They see tsunamis drown families in Indonesia.  Classrooms fall and bury students in China.  Levees collapse and a major United States city, New Orleans, is staggering on its last legs.  First Hurricane Kristina, then Gustave.  TV news shows roads filled with refugees.  In the U.S.A.

Chaos theory prevails.

Ride your bicycle instead of driving your car.  Bring a cup to Dunkin Donuts instead of taking a new styrofoam cup every time.  Think about it.  How many styrofoam cups does Dunkin Donuts use in a day.  Visualize the pile if they were all stacked together.  Just one day and it’s tough to conceive the size of it.

Visualize a pitbull with lipstick on.  Hey, Palin said it; what do you think it would look like?

I’m going to vote for Barack Obama and hope for the best.  If McCain wins we’ll all have to go out into the streets and cut our throats and watch the blood of America run into the sewers.

Barracuda.

“From the oyster to the eagle, from the swine to the tiger, all animals are to be found in men and each of them exists in some man, sometimes several a the same time.  Animals are nothing but the portrayal of our virtues and vices made manifest to our eyes, the visible reflections of our souls.  God displays them to us to give us food for thought.”—–Victor Hugo, Les Miserables, 1862.

Sarah Palin.  BARRACUDA! ! !
