Peace In Our Lifetime!?

25 Nov

In 2016 President Trump said that he could solve the Israeli/Palestinian conflict in the Middle East with the help of his son-in-law, Jared Kushner (who had no diplomatic experience) by making the “Deal of the Century”! “Jared’s a very smart guy,” said President Trump and “I would love to be able to be the one that made peace with Israel and the Palestinians.”

 

This week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo  announced that the United States will no longer consider Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank as necessarily violating international law and thus reversed decades of U.S. policy in the Middle East and almost certainly (according to many Middle East observers and scholars on the subject) ensuring that there will… most likely… never be peace in the Middle East!

That’s some deal!…And after only 3 years of negotiating?

 

But fear not for I believe that President Donald Trump’s evangelical advisory team, has a very long term-plan (maybe not so long-term?) that will eventually bring peace to everyone, everywhere.

Tensions in the West Bank rise. Regional war ensues. Other countries get involved. Nuclear war follows…

Armageddon!

The world ends.

Jesus returns.

Hell for the unbelievers?

Peace on Earth!

Gee, that was easy… wasn’t it?

I could be wrong…but if I’m not…I sure hope it’s televised!

 

 

Reading Is Fundamental?

20 Nov

83% of all court cases in South Dakota have to do with Meth (methamphetamine) use. So one would have to say that meth use is pretty big in South Dakota. And as a result The Governor of South Dakota has hired a public relations firm to help bring awareness to this problem and to help reassure the citizens of South Dakota that their government is doing something about it.

So naturally the government of South Dakota awarded a 1.4 million dollar contract to a PR firm to do just that…

And here is the slogan that they have come up with:

METH. WE’RE ON IT.

Here’s the poster:

Here’s the video:

 

South Dakota and Meth. They are on it! But I think it might only be because the slogan “Be Best” was already taken!?

Doesn’t anyone proof read anymore? Or listen? Or ask for advice? Or try things out before they jump in? Or run it by their colleagues and friends to see how it flies? Ask, “Hey! How does this sound?” Or find a teacher and say, “You’re a teacher. What do you think?”

Especially if they have an important job like, say, elected government official???

And of course those responsible for this PSA, video and slogan, rather than say they are sorry, admit that they’re effort was not well planned, poorly worded, and quite frankly just plain dumb, (not to mention a waste of 1.4 million dollars) have decided that it’s just fine and exactly what they had hoped for in their concerted efforts to champion “meth prevention”??? by:

Oh I give up! Maybe you can tell me?

Get on that please… and get back to me, OK?

Thanks.
