Apocalypse, Charlie Brown!
George W. Bush: "All that stuff that happened
in the past eight years? Don't look at me."
Dick Cheney: "Yeah. We tortured."
I've been good for the past eight
years. In that time I didn't
invade another country, or ignore terror warnings, or let
drown. I recycled studiously and flossed every night.
I know you had at least something to do with our new president
getting elected, and I thank you for that, but I have one
more request that I hope you'll consider:
Please allow the world economic system to completely collapse.
Seriously, once money no longer has value
it'll be survival of the fittest and that means those who
know how to grow food will survive over all others. Yes,
billions will die
but those who valued money over all else will be the first
go, hopefully in a great deal of pain, and
anew as a peaceful, agrarian paradise. If we're lucky, no
will remember what a reverse naked negative mortgage swap
was for many centuries to come.
As always I'll be setting out a plate of sour cream blini's
and a hot cup of cocoa flavored with a hint of peppermint
schnapps, just the way you like it.
