Okay, so here it is... Monday, my one day off. I get to work 5 more days before I have another. Shit. I've got a busy day: laundry, cardio, shoveling snow (oh, right, they're the same thing).
We did get more snow yesterday. Even though it started falling in early afternoon, the temps were too warm for it to lay. That didn't happen till around 5 (PM), so all we ended up with was around 3 more inches of the fluffy stuff that hung heavy on the branches.
A woman I've known for about 40 years posted a similar picture on Facebook praising the "Master's artistic handy work," and of course I had to respond. Knowing she was never a Dr. Who fan, I didn't make a glib comment about him and his most major adversary... The Master. Rather than that, I reminded her this was the same storm system which killed at least 23 in Alabama. One of the biggest problems with two of the major religions is their need to make believers personalize their Faith. Everything is about 'you' which is why their most favorite word has become "my." She saw the snow on her trees and thought of how beautiful it was on 'her' trees, without even attempting to reconcile that beauty with shattered lives and dead people in Alabama. To do so would have been more questions about the big picture. The don't like the big picture, they want the small, personalized picture.
And, what about the Idiot Jerk hugging the flag at CPAC? Have your every seen a more over-the-top performance. The only thing this moron is any good at is manipulation, at that he's a Master, especially in the eyes of his followers. The more overboard he goes, the happier they are. He is touching their own personalized beliefs. They hate the big picture since it presents more questions then they can answer. Their political beliefs are small and personal, like their religious beliefs. They are about the 'me' and the 'my;' 'you' are more than then can comprehend.
