According to Kurt Vonnegut...

Mankind is going to dissappear off the earth. Interviewed on the NOW show on PBS last evening, the old humanist (raised Catholic) says man has little chance to restore the damage he's done to the earth and now she's ready to get rid of us. When asked what he thought of President Bush, he said they had a name for his kind when he went to school: it was 'twit'.
When asked what his greatest dream was he said it had always been to see 'great schools' but it had never been realized. He also used Biblical quotes to emphasize the immorality he sees such as 'turn the other cheek', 'the meek shall inherit the earth' and such.
He also talked about how we are social people but technology (the internet) is the wrong way to go as we don't get off our butts anymore and socialize.
The problem I had was figuring out which statements were tongue-in-cheek and which he really believes...but then he's always been a hard guy to figure out.

What really cracks me up about you guys is you can't figure how to stop the blog ads!

Meanwhile, you all spend most of your time stringin' lame insults together from your limited vocabularies. Imagine what would happen if you invested some time in improving yourselves instead of carping all day at conservatives.

You might just figure out how to stop the ads!

yes, I do not know what to make of it as well.

Obviously King George failed to follow the "proffer the other cheek" idealogy.

What really cracks me up about you Espella is you can't keep a comment on your blog that proves your posting is factually incorrect. Hypocrite...just like the rest of the right wing nut jobs out there.
