    Default You know the world has gone mad, when.......

    Reading the news and seeing how the world is going insane, you think you have seen it all, but then a new story hits you and you can't do anything else than to say to yourself the world has gone mad. So this is the thread where you can all post the small and big things that are happening that makes you utter those words.

    I'll start.

    You know the world has gone mad, when there is soon no male politician left, because they have all been removed due to the #metoo campaign
    Brrrr! Humbug!

    Make the world happy, play the bassoon.

    No worries. The world will still be mad when you wake up.

    You know the world has gone mad when Chelsea Manning files to run for US Senate.

    When you see a Star Wars sticker on your banana. Really? Star Wars and Dole partnership to advertise a movie on a banana?

    It had a picture of those porgs on it, the creatures Disney invented mostly so they could sell a lot of toys. I just stared at it for a minute in disbelief.

    When EVERYTHING is considered racist
    If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

    When people take NO responsibility at all for their wrong doings and ALWAYS turn themselves into the victim in EVERY situation and turn everyone else into the bad guy.

    When presenting anything related to Christianity, the media asks the opinions of liberal Christians and Catholics, but when presenting anything related to Islam, it asks the opinions of "moderate" Moslems.

    When you can’t even say hello or good morning to a stranger without them giving you a dirty look, along with no response, and treating you like you have some kind of an angle and are plotting on them.

    ***Caution. Adult Dialogue. Viewer discretion advised***


    I'm driving thru a parking lot when this guy (late 20's, early 30's) comes barreling in the driveway, dang near hits me, then flips me off as he drives by. Having long since gotten tired of this prevalent behavior, I watch him park and then pull into the spot next to him. Keeping the car in gear in case a hasty exit is needed, I roll down the window and, in a very cordial, conversational tone, ask "what he heck was that all about?".

    He doesn't recognize me, and asks, "what was what all about?"

    "You came racing in the driveway, dang near hit me, then to top it off -you- flipped -me- off."

    "so?"

    "So explain it to me, what the thinking there, what's the reasoning behind something like that?"

    "I have places to go and things to do."

    "But we all have places to go and things to do. So, for no other reason than we both had to go the same place and do the same thing, you tell me to go eff myself?"

    Still maintaining that cordial, conversational tone, he chuckles and says "yeah ... go eff yourself."

    I shake my head. "Man, I feel sorry for you and your generation. You know, karma's a b-, and that attitude will come back around some day to haunt you."

    "I really don't give a f-".

    "Really? So you honestly don't care if people think your an a-, or that someday you're going to flip off the wrong person and they're going to beat the living crap out of you?"

    "No man, I really don't give a s-".

    "Wow ... If that's the world you really want to live in, I wish you luck with that. You're going to need it. Someday that's gong to bite you in the a- and when it does I hope you remember this conversation"

    "Like I said, man, I really don't give a f-".

    "Again, I wish you luck with that. But that's definitely not a world I care to live in"

    I then drove away.

    The entire exchange was actually quite cordial, and not a word was spoken in anger or passion. It surprised me that, absent any malice, this guy could still think and talk like that. Shows how deeply ingrained this mentality has become.

    So yeah, the human race has gone insane and love has grown cold. All one can do now to escape it is to leave it.

    Truth is available only to those who have the courage to question whatever they think they know.

    It's hard to learn anything when you always feel the need to be the expert.

    Police are treated like criminals for doing their jobs (I don't mean crooked ones) and criminals are treated like victims.

    I don't let my kids take the bus because kids these days are crazy and have no home training, not because of wolves.
