Happy Mothers Day
And how better, in that terminally psychotic country across the big blue briny Great Sanity Divide, to mark the occasion with a parade, bands, happy dancing clapping crowds.... and another mass shooting.
Seems this time it was not one, not two, but THREE gun crazy psychos going bug nut crazy with the bang bangs, shooting wildly into the parade and crowd.
19 victims so far, including a few kids.
19 more to add to the butchers bill.
And the response?
Well, expect Faux to start sounding the Mooslim Terryrist Klaxon(tm), the short term headless chicken twostep to commence, CNN to run constantly corrected disinformation feeds, some fainting couches to be occupied, a few strings of pearls to be wrung, a few rounds of blame gaming and finger pointing, the usual suspect parade of false reasons for what has happened, and the NRA to scream about how this shows you need more and more guns....
.... and bugger all else solid done to prevent this continuing cycle of same old same old month after month.
And by the way...that sound of splashing water?
That's me and the rest of the sane world washing our hands of you.
You are awash in a sea of guns and death, where making money off death toys is more important than saving lives.
You are lost and damned.
Beyond all sane reasoning and redemption.
And its time to damn well wake up from the American Dream, realise its become the American Scream, and cure yourself of this psychosis.
I have none.
as the Thais say... Som Nam Na
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

Wow. Just f@cking wow.
