Welcome to the Friday the 13th of March 2015 Post Game Show for Mojo Friday!
So today is Friday the 13th, hence the theme of today's Mojo Friday Diary: Triskaidekaphobia. After the adventures of the Republican Party last week, I set out to discover what the Fear of 47 might be. Boy, was that fun!
First up was a verse from the Bible ... Lamentations 3:47 captured best by the New Living Translation, I thought:
We are filled with fear, for we are trapped, devastated, and ruined.
If that doesn't describe the Republican party today, I don't know what else does. For they are clearly filled with fear ... of bloody everything as far as I can tell. They clearly feel trapped, devastated and ruined, for why else would they flail around so wildly, trying to hit and hurt everything they can. Even, seemingly, those they love?
But that wasn't all! Apparently Californian's passed Proposition #47 last fall:
The recent voter-approved ballot proposition reduces a handful of nonviolent crimes from felonies to misdemeanors, including the simple possession of most drugs for personal use and theft of items valued at less than $950.
[ref: Santa Maria Sun
] where this is just one article about law and order types having a hissy fit because their private sector prison friends won't be able to lock up and abuse people for years over small crimes.
Meanwhile, No Fear Shakespeare brings us Sonnet 47.
Betwixt mine eye and heart a league is took,
And each doth good turns now unto the other.
When that mine eye is famished for a look,
Or heart in love with sighs himself doth smother,
With my love’s picture then my eye doth feast
And to the painted banquet bids my heart.
Move on citizens, nothing to fear, nothing here!
And I found something else to not fear (indeed, to drool over), a nice Cape Fear 47 yacht! Courtesy of Yacht World!
So maybe the good in 47 outweighs the fear. What do you think? And now for the fun!
