"There are two kinds of fools: those who can't change their opinions and those who won't." - Josh Billings
It's a Monday and I've got fools on my mind. Might as well, I'll encounter at least one today. They're multiplying....increasing their ranks and
their staying power.
Have you ever seen "Invasion of the Body Snatchers?", you know with the pod people. Great movie, very campy. Anyway, there's a place, somewhere today, that the pod fools are springing from and their mission is to take over the world.
"Foolproof systems do no take into account the ingenuity of fools." - Gene Brown
Judging by the looks of things, I can't make up my mind if the first point of attack is Hollywood or Washington. Personally, I think Hollywood is their Mecca and Washington their dream home.
What really scares me is the fact that some of the biggest pod fools are heralded as okay
by the masses, looked up to even. Whereas, by contrast, an intellectual/normal person comes along and they act like he has two heads.
I'm still amazed that Kerry came anywhere close to the White House. I'm even more amazed that there are people who are still driving around with his name on their bumper. (To have put it there in the first place didn't show good sense, to leave it there indicates a cry for help.)
"Every fool will find a greater one to admire them." - Bioleau
Look at some of the most searched-out, talked about celebs. Not a functioning brain cell in the group. Yet, they have more money than they could ever spend - while the educators of our world make so little it boggles the mind and turns the stomach.
What's most bothersome is that our young people are emulating and admiring some total and complete fools. They're cloning themselves to look like
and be like
them and they're doing an amazing job. They should be buying into their own identity, not renting someone else's.
They say that people make a statement with what they're wearing, and how they do their hair. True. A lot of our young, and not so young people are screaming, "I'm a fool and I like it!
" Sometimes I'll see a Wally Cleaver look-alike screaming this very thing and I just want to scream back at him, "I know!
". Darling boy, what looks like a million bucks on Nelly looks like counterfeit crap on you. Give him his look back, people are looking, and worse they're laughing.
And young girls, darling baby divas - Paris and the Olson twins are little wisps of girls. Clothes they wear fit them, they don't fit the rest of us. Think about it, the smaller the clothes - the more that shows, through the material as well as around it. If you don't fit what Paris wears, don't wear what Paris fits.
Wear what fits you - accentuate the positive curves and hide what you really don't want sticking out from under your top. For the love of God and decency, this goes for all of us, the seasoned divas as well as the baby divas.
It's true enough that you can't judge a book by it's cover, but you can always estimate it's value. Cheap, worn cover. Probably not worth much.
I'm an optimist, so I'm holding out for all the non-fools of the world to unite and force the fools back into their place. They'll never see it coming. They're fools.
Happy Memorial Day!
Thank you to all of the brave men and women who have served or are serving the greatest country in the world,
