One Picture Is Worth.....etcetera and so forth



Above is a photo I stared at and thought about for almost a full minute; deep in contemplation; awash in gradual enlightenment; and not enlightenment of an enlightening kind. The kind of enlightenment that makes you ask the cosmic and all important question that all men eventually ask if they have any awareness of life at all and that would be the question wtf? Yes, what the fuck; the question a wise man asks after becoming enlightened. the wtf-moment i am referring to right now, in this case, involves the photo above. Do you know where this is? No, it is not Mexico in the heart of the Yaqui homeland of anemic corn plants, scrawny chickens and 300 naked children hanging on to fat mommy's raggy dress. No, it is the border of Israel and Palestine. Wherever Palestine is. Apparently the border of Israel and Palestine changes every week depending on what the UN decides and what Israel counter decides. At any rate it is a border crossing between the two nations that have the whole entire rest of the planet in a fury and an uproar as to what do do about them. Americans are under constant threat of death, a ten year war has been engaged, 3,000 people and two skyscrapers on American land have been killed and destroyed, Europe is under threat of Muslim overthrow, most of Persia is in riot stage and all focus planetwide among nations with atomic warfare capabilities is honed-in at this spot in the picture: the Israel and Palestine border. And what do you see in the middle of the picture and the center attraction: that is right, a burro. A fucking goddamn prehistoric stone age covered-in-bundles-of-sticks burro. And is that asphalt and highway Macadam you see there underfoot of senyore burrow and his two mexican-like Chicklet-chewing bastard street urchins slash purse snatchers? No. It is dirt. Third world, fresh from the ground, never been not there...dirt. The whole world is focused and dying and living in tense fear and unquiet nervousness over two countries with a burro economy and a dirt foundation. You have to ask yourself how is this possible? And there are only two possible answers and only one of them can be right: because human societies are totally retarded and God is making a pretty apparent comedy show for the intelligent bystanders out of it. Or else it's simply because human societies are totally retarded and god is not involved, we are managing all this stupidity on our own.
