Greeting to all. Yes, it has been a long time since my last post here at the old soap box. Sorry about that, I just haven’t felt I had much to say recently. So many others seem to say much of what I want to say and they all do it much better. Also, with all the damn fool wars of choice raging across the planet, thanks mostly to (not so very) old ‘Merikkka I just got tired of bitching about all the negativity.
Well, today I read of two, yes, count them up, TWO bits of honest to goodness good news. As I said in the title of this post, finally!
Number one, and this is a big one in my opinion.The agreement between Iran and the P5+1 was finally signed! Hooray! And a huge, what the hell took you morons so damn long? I AM asking YOU leaders of ‘Merikkka, in particular our igNobel piece prizident for one. Of course the good news is tempered a bit. Naturally, look who the Iranians were negotiating with. Yep, ‘Merikkka. The sanctions will not be fully lifted until January 2016. Well, crap, but, wait, it is going to take a few months to get all the supposed minor details in place for this new agreement. Still, the Iranian people were overjoyed at this news. Hell, the entire world ought to be I think.
Now it is only natural, and it does follow that Bibi Nutty-assed Yahoo says that he and the zionist entity are NOT beholden to this agreement. Well sure. I mean, when has the entity ever obeyed international law? About the only times I can recall is when it suits them and/or is in their favor. Any other time, they just do as they want so why would they do any different now? That idiot gang who run the entity are just further isolating themselves and their absurd little apartheid regime. One can almost see the day when no decent, humane country will allow any of their leaders into their countries for any reason. You want to act like a nasty, foul mouthed, spoiled brat, we all should treat you like one and sit you in a corner and ignore you until you can act like a decent human being.
The other good news, the New Horizons space craft has made it to Pluto and is sending back photos and more data than even the entire team who worked on this neat space mission could ever have hoped for. Last I heard from that group was it is going to take years to analysis all the data they will get. It is going to be months just for all the photos to be sent from the craft and downloaded. There are some great web sites about this mission. The official NASA web site has much of it. Just type New Horizons into your favorite search engine and off you go to see a planet, OK, ok, dwarf planet, for the very first time ever! Now, there you go, new information. More cool things we never knew before. That in my personal opinion is damn good news. More knowledge, more interesting discoveries.
OK, here it comes. Yeah, I have to throw in some of my old downer crap. Hey, what can I say, I’m 67 and and too bloody old to change now. My downer is this, with all this good news, no US/EU/NATO war against Iran, thanks to cool heads finally staying cool for a change. Many thanks to Russia and China for this as well. May the cosmos bless them, for now at least. Also, all the new information we are getting and will still get in the next months from and about Pluto; why in bloody goddamn hell are we still running around this planet killing each other just because we do not all believe the same damn old fairy tale about some mythical sky doG? I swear, it is more than enough to make this old combat vet sick as hell and that would be so even IF I didn’t have my current medical problems. Of course the greed of Wally Street/City of London and the international banksters and the military contractors, weapons makers/sellers and the damn fool mercenaries are all part of this horse shit mess and should be shut down yesterday, better yet, last decade. Hell, last century.
Science gain us new knowledge, and still some of our fellow humans are killing each other over some damn fool bullshit ancient myths. Get over it you morons.
I’ll leave you with an oldie from my high school days. There is still, I think they still make it, a dog food named Ken-L-Ration. The jingle for the TV ad went like this’ “My dog is better than your dog. My dog eats Ken-L-Ration”. Well, my best friends and I, we were nearly booted out of the Lutheran church for asking bad questions. (We were nearly excommunicated. When Dad told me about it, I said let them, I’ll wear that as a badge of honor. He knew I would have and said I never had to attend church or Sunday school again. Dad was my first hero and that day guaranteed that status for him.) Our version went like this; “My god’s better than your god. My god eats Ken-L-Ration”. There is some version of a bit about a dyslexic atheist who couldn’t figure why he had to walk the god, but I can’t remember it all. If any of you know it, send it here and I’ll approve it in the comments section.
Until next time, keep learning, about everything/anything. Oh, and as always, be nice to each other. We’ll all be better off for it.
