We’ve got ourselves a situation here. First, we have a football blog with no football to discuss. Second, we have a football blog with no football to discuss. And thirdly, there’s no football to discuss.
We could discuss world events, but they’re even more depressing than a non-existent football universe. Japan, for instance, seems headed toward being officially declared as the world’s first toxic waste site land mass. An entire culture of people might be on the verge of extinction. Radioactive fumes from that area are now wafting over the western United States and sprinkling down upon the land and citizens residing there. Which is most of us. Whether this will destroy the agricultural industry in California and to what extent it will poison the citizens and the land irreparably has yet to be determined. And you can be sure the government will not tell us the truth about it, either. Not good, folks.
Denial is usually not a healthy mentality, but when there’s nothing you can do about something, denial becomes a sedative. That’s how we generally spend our lives dealing with the ultimate owie — death. We deny it’s nearness, it’s eventuality. We hand its portrayal off to movie stars and video games, dulling ourselves to its reality.
At any rate, this site normally leaves the depressing news to other sites and other media. With no football to discuss, however, maybe it’s okay to depart from form for a day and open the floor to anybody who has two cents to offer about world events. Hopefully, the discussion won’t turn into a Republicans vs Democrats, or Conservatives vs Liberals wrangle, but an educative effort at understanding the mess going on and where it’s all headed or just what we all feel about it.
My own two cents is that it is far less important who is doing things so much as what is being done. World wide conspiracy theories are encouraged. Go ahead, let out the Bilderberger/Masons/Illuminati harbored deep in your private think tank. Personally, this H.A.A.R.P. enterprise is very ominous, and so is the collection and storing of the world’s food seeds by Bill Gates and friends. Toss in the vast bunkers in India at the base of the Himalayas where the Rockefellers go for vacations and you can see that no cockeyed theory is too dangerous to admit to now. I won’t even get into the 25 levels of Top Secret above the admitted Top Secret. The Cosmos Level boys. Don’t even tempt me.
Or maybe there’s just nobody left out there who is logging onto a football blog where there isn’t any football news. In which case, the comment section will be pretty much empty today, just like yesterday. And tomorrow we’ll resume discussion of “Dez Bryant: Super Star Mall Rat.”
Have at it, Outsiders. Try to keep the cussing tasteful and the thoughts informative. We’re all in this stew together.
