My previous post... SATIRE

JUST IN CASE you've never heard of satire... my previous post would be an example.

So, to clarify... there is NO RIGHT WING NEO-CON AGENDA (TM), I support the War on Terror, and I think the freedoms that the war are trying to protect are much abused here in the West.

Freedom has a price. If you think the price is too high and you don't want to pay for it, try moving to some repressive regime, and try to live your life the way you want to, and always have... see how long that works for ya. Send us a postcard and let us know.

In the meantime, those of us who don't agree with you will keep trying to protect your way of life.

    "Freedom has a price"

    Of course, it's "eternal vigilance" as Thomas Jefferson told us. What it isn't necessarily is attacking and invading other countries that had nothing to do with the attacks here in North America in a so-called "War on Terror" which can never actually be won, at least not the way we've been fighting it. Perhaps if we could eliminate religion from the world altogether we could win the war, but until then there will always be religious terror out there, both physical and psychological, from both threats of bombs and threats of hell. hmmm... maybe God is even a bigger terrorist than the Muslim extremists are. All they can do is kill the body, but God is apparently going to keep us alive eternally so we can continue to feel the terror and pain even long after the bombs themselves are gone (yes, that's tongue-in-cheek, as I don't believe for a second that God is evil enough to do such a thing, but most Christians and Muslims sure seem to think He is).

    First sign of poor satire? "My previous post... SATIRE"

    I include a disclaimer on mine, too, but that's just to prevent wingnuts from suing me for roasting them.

    World Applauds Canada Christian Conservative For His Recent Satirical Writing

    The entire world today celebrated a two-hour period of rejoicing today as Canada Christian Conservative released his latest attempts at satirical writing.

    "It's definitely welcome around here," said Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert. "Our region has seen the first peace in years, thanks to the release of Canada Christian Conservative's recent satirical effort. Look all around us: Arabs and Jews hugging, kissing, dancing, and drinking together, like old friends; mixed racial soccer teams playing against each other in friendly impromptu matches; Rabbis and Imams talking studiously and harmoniously together, learning from each other in a spirit of understanding and acceptance. All because of the long-awaited release of Canada Christian Conservative's attempts at writing satire."

    Croatian Minister of the Interior Ivica Kirin also reported similar events. "Bosians, Serbs, Croats of all different religious affiliations celebrated alongside each other, in mutual delight that Canada Christian Conservative took his hard-hitting social commentary and humour public," he said. "We were worried about the economic difficulties that would come from basically what amounts to an unplanned public holiday, but we think the goodwill and camraderie that will spill off from this will definitely more than pay for all the work time missed."

    On the local scene, local hospitals reported drastically reduced emergency calls, and in one case, a man coming back from the dead, just after the satirical article went live.

    "Scared the hell right out of the nursing staff," chuckled Dr. Antonia Debarras, of K-W General Hospital. "He had just been pronounced dead moments before, and then all of a sudden his eyes went wide open and he yelled. But not an afraid yell, more like a triumphant bellow. Then he got up and danced and celebrated how good it was to be alive in a time when Canada Christian Conservative was producing satire. We all felt good, frankly, but he took it up a notch, and we really appreciate him doing that. It totally has me pumped to be alive, mostly because I'm thinking maybe tomorrow Canada Christian Conservative might publish another satirical work."

    Literature professors around the world are working furiously around the clock to get the recent offing translated into as many languages as possible, and also to produce analytical recounts in the world's top literary journals, many of whom are planning on releasing a mid-month special edition devoted entirely to this latest article.







    (Now that's satire. ;) )

    You see this little stick I'm holding in my hand? The one with this nice white cloth attached to the end?

    How can I compete with that? An entire article written in mockery of me, and I'm smiling the entire time I'm reading it!

    Now that's a schooling. ;-)
