Dems, Republicans, god, and grownups


So .. the Republicans (in the person of token mainstream Christian Paul Ryan) twitted the Democrats about — horrors! — their failure to put the word “god” in their party platform. Never mind that party platforms are, at best, a pack of damnable irrelevancies and never mind that god is imaginary.

The Dems — brave, independent thinkers that they are! — immediately added “god back in.

Where, oh where, oh where are the grownups in this world? The rational adults who don’t need invisible friends? Where on earth have they gone?

Where are the people who understand that the world is in deep, deep shit and “god” — let alone the mere word “god” — isn’t going to fix what needs fixing?

Has the entire world gone mad? Or is it just me?

    Yeah, the world is mad, but it isn’t a new development at all. Otherwise we wouldn’t be seeing things of this sort now.
