Sorry I haven’t been around much lately my friends, but between the heat, my continuing PC woes, and the horrible backache I’ve been suffering from for over a week (I suspect these three things are most definitely connected), I really haven’t felt much like blogging. I am feeling a little better today though, and my area is experiencing the second day in a row that’s cool enough for me to go without that damned arthritis aggravating air conditioning. So, assuming my electronic hunk-o-junk will cooperate, I’ll now attempt to resume exposing the online world to my particular form of insanity by following up on my Pay No Attention To That Man Behind The Curtain! post.
Despite the fact that the big Texas “prayer event” fell somewhat short of the Big Ass Party To Celebrate The Establishment Of Hell On Earth I suspect they were hoping for, these folks have by no means given up. Oh no, definitely not! And, as our friend Rachel Maddow’s latest report makes very clear, these “Christian Soldiers” seem more intent than ever to “march on” into history:
Oh yeah, you should STILL be Very Afraid!
It’s funny how, with all that “God uses nature to punish the sinners” stuff, it doesn’t seemed to have occurred to them that perhaps it’s their own “sins” – or maybe those of their hard-right, ultra-conservative, messiah, Rick Perry – that’s caused Texas to suffer through a near-record number of days with temperatures over one hundred degrees. But hey, I’m the crazy one here. They’re probably out dancing in the streets like water droplets on a hot griddle over Perry’s decision to run for president!
Now I admit that my having been raised in an atmosphere filled with crazy superstitions, in combination with a strongly developed bias against all things religious despite a persistent fascination with epic “end of the world” scenarios like these:
have left me somewhat… um… “shell-shocked” on the subject…
But, dammit, these New Apostolic Reformation people scare the pants off of me!
On the other hand, I don’t want to leave you all with the impression that I’m not just as capable as the next guy of closing my eyes and pretending it’ll all “just go away” if I ignore it. So, to that end, I’ll conclude with a little more of the “distracting noise” this real-world “Army of Darkness” is counting on to mask what they’re up to:
Wow, I got that done with a minimum of back pain and just 3 PC freeze-ups! 🙄
I want ice water.
