I actually believed, based on the rhetoric and positions of the Republicans and Democrats in the Senate, that the Keystone XL actually had a chance of being stopped there, in the Senate. There were, from my perspective — from what I read on the variety of streams of information I receive everyday — a false sense that at least three Republican Senators, just listening to their positions on environmental issues in general, who may have opposed that idiotic pipeline (and it is, at this point, idiotic).
Then to see that there were some Democrat Senators that voted for it too … WTF?! I really didn’t see that coming at all, especially when they “KNEW” the President would veto it (if he actually does do that, and now I have to hold the jury out until it actually happens). How are we supposed to trust these people?
I know money is great and everything, yet, this is beyond any reasonable good judgment of any kind. I’m so lost and confused on this planet right now, I am having serious thoughts on why I bother to try to figure this out. Maybe I should just stop. Yet if I did that, I’d have no reason to blog and where’s the fun in a life without blogging? Maybe there is no solution.
Which leads me to this thought, the creation of a world within one’s own narration is so easy to manipulate and control now, how are we ever going to reconcile the extreme vision of the world being held by our “leaders” with the actual truth of life on earth? I can spend an entire life never knowing how stupid the world actually is, however, i think i would miss the comedy and drama of other people’s version of the script that just is so deviant from the human narration for sustainable existence on this planet. Its just when that deviance impacts something as important as the source that gives us all life: mother earth.
Bring back sanity.
