Today I read a tweet that went something like this: pray for Somalia, Tunisia, Bahrain, Libya, London.
What a minute … London?
Then I saw another @acarvin RT that basically said, “Now that the UK regime has failed, what should we do? Bombings? Sanctions?”
I saw some further tweets from BBC 5 Live, which I discovered during the last World Cup. I tuned in via, uh, Tunein on my Captivate to the channel and heard about a shooting that occurred three days ago that was “Like a spark that has spread into a forest fire.”
Then I saw this video of a Jamaican national living in London, ranting against the rioting mutants:
MEANWHILE, Navy Seal Team Six are shot out of the sky in Afghanistan.
MEANWHILE, the U.S. government’s credit rating has been downgraded by S&P.
MEANWHILE, Obama is looking more and more like a cross between Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon.
MEANWHILE, as predicted here at the DailySkew, the dominoes continue to fall.
MEANWHILE, a bottle of Clorox wipes that used to cost $2 now costs $4.
MEANWHILE, Phil Hughes sucks [ed. note: man cannot live on misery and death alone].
MEANWHILE, gas went down $.08 after going up, like, $2.00 over the past year.
MEANWHILE, oil prices have gone down b/c even the speculators have lost faith in the economic recovery.
MEANWHILE, the illusion of stability and perpetual economic prosperity is gone for the time being.
Welcome to 21st century dystopian Earth. Enjoy your stay.
Or, to quote from Vadim G over at Yahoo Answers:
“Riots? What riots? These are celebrations of diversity your lovely government and the crooked bargainers have unleashed for you enjoyment in multiculturalism. Just sit back and enjoy the ride. Not riots at all. Parades.”
Well, that’s what I learned today. How about you?
