Black is White and Up is Now Down

The whole damn world has gone nuts. Things that I thought were accepted principles have been thrown out the window. These fundamental changes in belief systems and accepted principles seem to have been triggered by the current Corona Virus pandemic that is sweeping the world. As always when something strange occurs, I do not sit idly by, and instead feel an urge to spring into action. I have found that whenever one thinks to themselves “Hmmm, that is strange”, it inevitably is a sign that the game is afoot. Every effect has a cause, and so it goes today.

“What is this imbecile talking about?”, you innocently wonder. Suddenly the liberals are the keepers of fiscal conservation and the conservatives are handing out Benjamins like it is International Workers’ Day. What could elicit such behavior? The world has gone and turned itself upside down. I provide a snippet of condensed Ghostbusters dialog to illuminate my feelings on our current situation

This city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions. Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, real wrath of God type stuff. Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes… The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!

These dudes are obviously shaken up. And when I say shaken up, I mean they feel threatened. Threatened with what? Why, loss of power of course. As the Oracle says “What do all men with power want? More power.” My question is, when handing out Benjamins has set the stage for the current sack of shit that we find ourselves in, why would handing out more Benjamins fix it? Has it ever worked? These dumb sombitches think that if we throw enough money at a problem, a perfect plan will magically appear, be staffed with competent wonder workers, and be executed flawlessly. Yuh, that always works.

It may be that Trumpy is accidentally correct. Taking the completely cynical view, it may be that we just need fewer old bastards in this country. So open the damn economic doors, forget about social distancing, resume business as usual, and we’ll have more apartments condos, houses, Social Security and Medicare available for the youth of America. America’s future is now secure.

As my long dead father in law used to say – “When ya hit 62, you should get a lead aspirin”. There, problem solved.

This is Red Neckerson – Good Day!
