America's F***ed Future
When you're going to be raptured, why give a flying fuck?
When considering the Future Fantasy of the Faithful
I had to ask "how many will be raptured?
" With odds this tenative one would think that stewardship of the earth we are already on would take precedence, after all, I think that was something humans were given responsibility for by the very power who would whisk them to heaven.
If I were that power, I sure as hell wouldn't want irresponsible debtors, those who would mortgage the land, air and sea of my creation, not to mention the future of their own children, coming anywhere near the heaven I created. The potential for them to fuck that up would be too great a risk for me.

"I guess after the Rapture, debts of all kinds will be forgiven. The White House is promoting a similar "What Me Worry?" attitude with our live-for-the-moment energy policy. America currently spends $13 million per hour on foreign oil — a number that will only increase as U.S. oil production peaks within the next five years just as consumption by industrializing nations doubles over the next 25 years."
When leadership lives in a fantasy world
it's time to give them a reality check
