How Do I Know We’re Screwed?

I’m thinking of starting a regular piece called “How I Know The End Is Nigh   Do I Know We’re Screwed?”. It would highlight one ridiculous story and point to others which show the absurd, shameful/shameless nature of the society we live in. It would probably look a little something like this:

A madwoman last night pushed a stranger onto subway tracks in Queens, where he was killed by a train, police and witnesses said.

It was the second such nightmare in less than a month.

The unsuspecting victim was waiting at the elevated 40th Street station of the 7 line in Sunnyside at 8 p.m.

“This lady, she just pushed the guy on the tracks. Then she ran away. I was screaming and closing my eyes,” said witness Tenzing Tegeng, 21, one of five people on the platform[…]

The assailant said nothing as she pushed the man to his doom, a law-enforcement source said, adding, “He didn’t even know she was there.”

Any thoughts? Is it a decent idea or just too much BS to keep piling on people?

    How about ‘nbc now reporting that no ‘assault rifle’ was used at Sandy Hook’.

    There’s still a few days to up the Chicago count. Wait a minute, you’re not supposed to have a gun in Chicago, so how can it happen. I know,assault weapons,just jump out and kill with no one around.

    Which end, Nota? If you are talking about economic collapse or the end of our republic that’s one thing. If you’re talking about four horsemen and rapture that’s another.

    I am not at all convinced that we are yet ready for what the book of Revelations has predicted. The occurrences you mention have been going on for a very long time.

    Is it possible that you and I are feeling the same thing that RD is feeling – fatigue?

    The instant communications we live with, compounded by the fascination that drives people like us to be cob-loggers, puts us in continuous contact with bad news. Couple that with a natural fear that our wonderful republic is being subverted and one can certainly become fatigued.

      Nah Jim, the title was just a lark. When I went to MEPS in Milwaukee, there was this old black guy with a sandwich board that said stuff about getting right with God, “The End Is Nigh Upon Us”.

      I just threw it in there. It could be changed. I’ve been trying not to cuss much since I asked the Lord to forgive me. My initial thought was “How Do I Know We’re F….d?”

      I think I’ll change it, just so folks don’t get confused with my intent.

    Obviously we need to ban subways.
