The Good, The Bad, and the Completely Insane People of the United States

A really good friend of mine was telling me that he was afraid the world was going to end. I told him that I thought he was crazy. I told him that the earth has been here for a long time and would probably be around for a while longer.

He said that he wasn't talking about the planet, that he was talking about our way of life. Something like, "corporate totalitarianism...", I said, "like, oh my god, what's that?"

No, I didn't. I said, "I hope so. I'd like to have a better life someday".

He said that my life won't be better. I think he said something about the wild west. Now, I've seen a lot of wild west movies and they're pretty cool. You can carry a gun, you don't have to bathe, and you can hit your kids. You can also drink things called, "hooch". I mean, hooch. That sounds like something you would drink if you were a real man.

I don't think I'm much of a real man though.

He laughed. Said I was a "hopeless romantic."

I can see that.

So the world is going to end. At least life as we know it. I told him I still don't see how that is bad. Right now we live in a world that is run by rich people. Poor people don't have a voice. Now, I'm not really a fan of rich people or poor people. Both groups smell bad.

I don't care if your'e rich or poor, I just care how you smell. I once got sick sitting next to a homeless guy in church. I didn't care that he was homeless, but he smelled really bad and I got a cold from him.The rich guy from the pulpit told me I should give him my money so he could give it to the homeless guy. So I stopped going to church.

Other than that, yeah, I told him he's probably right.
