Sparks (or not)
Emitted from the fire, their tiny illumination endures for the briefest of moments…then, they are gone

It’s a Mad (mentally unstable) World…

The ad pleads:

“Try Lunesta for sleep problems…”(accompanied by soothing music and a flitting butterfly)

“But be aware Lunesta may also cause swelling of the tongue and throat, which may lead to death. It may also cause irritability, anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts, and it has occasionally been known to produce  periods of memory loss…and has been known to be habit-forming” (paraphrased from TV ad).

I’m afraid I’d lie wide awake all night long for fear of the possible side effects.

o-o-o-o-o-o

“Due to the proliferation of guns and violence, we must confiscate from the general populace all firearms and make their possession from this point forward illegal.”

The implied twisted reasoning (which of course is not voiced) behind such statements is as follows:

“The criminals will strictly adhere to such regulation for fear of punishment” and “authorities in power will never succumb to the darker side of human nature and resort to tyranny. Trust us“.

o-o-o-o-o-o

“Let’s not keep score. Little Johnny’s tender feelings must never know the agony of defeat. Bring the achievers, who’ve unfairly tasted the thrill of victory, down to Johnny’s level so all may experience  the boredom of mediocrity”. (sarcasm is mine)

When little Johnny moves beyond the world of fun and games, will his atrophied self esteem not guarantee failure in the real world?

As it is said, “iron sharpens iron”.

o-o-o-o-o-o

Think of a two-lane highway, separated in the middle by a painted line. Picture in your mind cars passing in opposite directions at speeds of 60 mph, only inches apart. Is that not mad…?

Considering this happens millions of times per day, involving the mentally unstable masses I’ve heretofore described, it is madness indeed.

o-o-o-o-o-o

When the Westboro Baptist Church teaches its children to dance on the graves of those who died for their freedom to do so…

…and to do this in the name of Christ, who uttered these words:
“Greater love hath no man than this, that he should lay down his life for his friends”…

Yes, it truly is a mad world we live in.
