Journal Entry # 44
April 24th, 2010
Day to day we try to make sense of the world around us. Most things we see we just shake our head a bit and move on or we see most things as normal which is exactly what the parts of the world want you to do. Then there are those times when you just can’t make sense of it no matter how you twist and turn it. The other day I was watching a spot of TV with my lovely wife when on came this commercial for KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken for those who do not know, maybe you live in a country where you eat healthy foods), They were advertising their new Pink Bucket of chicken where they will donate .50 for every purchase. So you buy the bucket of death, food that just begs to be eaten so you can get fatter and fatter and become obese and when you’re done you can feel great because you just helped KFC conquer breast cancer. Now if you’re eating this bucket of unhealthy shit you’re probably going to light up a cigarette after your meal to relax but remember as you slowly enjoy each inhale of that beautiful cancer causing smoke that you just saved someone’s tits. Good for you. Now remember the cigarette companies will now donate .25 for every pack you buy to helping deal with obesity. So when you get sick either way your covered.
The bucket that saves
Another thing that makes no sense to me is this. Everywhere you look you can see advertisements for beer, liquor and wine but advertising for cigarette companies banned from TV and other spots. We don’t want our youth smoking but they need to get all liquored up. What the hell is the difference? Are they both not legal? So what group of idiots decided that one was OK and the other dangerous? There both dangerous you idiots. They both should be banned from advertising. Although they are legal the list of problems they and other drugs cause is enormous. Show me one example of long term drug use that has turned out for the best. How much money as a society do we spend trying to address the problems? Still with 0% positive outcome people still do drugs and we allow certain ones to be advertised as though it is the greatest thing in the world to do. This makes no sense to me. Buck up the suds because apparently it’s Ok according to someone in the government. There is nothing like hockey and beer to make for a great evening of fighting.
One more thing that makes no sense to me for this post. To be honest the list is very long but whose isn’t? I really get sick of this political battle in the USA between the Democrats and the Republican. The old 2 party system. Why not take the best of both parties and make a new party? Now you don’t have to deal with hardcore fringe from both sides. Don’t most Americans sit somewhere in the middle anyway? If both the parties lost an election at the same time it might force them to really examine what they need to change. Instead of this back and forth election wins thing that they have being doing for about 200 and something years maybe they need a real change. You can call the party The Responsible Government Party who has Taken an Oath not to Lie and Serve the People According to The Laws Of the Land. That might be something unique. Hell it might even work. What ideas do you have for a new party name and a Logo? How about a party that also has nothing to do with any religion?
There time is over. It’s not working.
As long as we continue to do stupid things we will get stupid results. Maybe it’s time to look at scaling back on fast food restaurants and smoking and anything else that causes damage. One day America is going to wake up while being attacked and not be able to do nothing about it because there too fat or too sick. I am sure that other countries are actually planning this.
Seek the truth always
