First of all, I am not dead. I am just fine and ornery as ever. I just pretend to be nice by using good manners and being polite. So even though I try to be polite and mannerly, in the past few days I have taken secret photos of a neighbor’s house and yelled at two Jehovah’s Witnesses.
These two events could be signs that we are on the Road to Ruin! Four years of Obama have really taken its toll on all of us. We are broke and grouchy. At least I am.
The other day I secretly took pictures of my neighbor’s house after a struggle to find a parking place on street sweeping day. I live close to the beach and most people live in small houses or garage apartments, so parking is tough and it’s extra hard to find parking on Mondays and Wednesdays when the street sweeper comes.
Last Tuesday night when we went to park the car the night before street sweeping, we thought we’d really lucked out when we spotted a parking spot on the correct side of the street at the end of our alley. If we were quick and got that parking place, we wouldn’t have to move the car in the morning and we wouldn’t have to worry about getting a $50 dollar ticket if we couldn’t find a non street sweeping parking spot and forgot to move the car. . . but when we pulled up to the cherished parking spot, the only one available, we saw this:
We didn’t want to park where we weren’t wanted. They could be mean people who would key our car!! After we hiked back from where we parked the car, way up the block and across the street, I stealthily maneuvered down the alley and took pictures.
The next day was Halloween. That evening I got a phone call from a friend of mine and her 10 year old daughter who was afraid to trick or treat at the “Democrat Parking Only” house. I reassured the little girl and finally convinced her to take their candy. I told her to take as much candy as she could.
“Smile and look cute,” I said, “See how much candy you can get out of them. And remember, none of that redistribution stuff, kiddo. Keep it all for yourself!!
She used her charm on them and got lots of candy but then, in her triumph, confessed that their candy wasn’t very good and tried to redistribute it to her mom, who wouldn’t eat any of it.
Now, on weekends here by the beach there are lots of people who come down on weekends. The weather was hot last weekend so people were looking for cool ocean breezes at the beach, a nice lunch and perhaps, a little walk around town. A nice relaxing day.
I was in the backyard sprawled out on a patio chair when the doorbell rang, dogs barked and everybody in the house became discombobulated. Yikes! Somebody is at the door!!
I saw a guy about thirty and a gal in her twenties on the front porch, so I opened the door only to notice a Watchtower magazine the gal was holding up to her breast. Jehovah’s Witnesses!!
“Hey, I’ll talk to them.” I thought, “I’ll see what they have to say.”
They both said hello. Then the guy asked, “Do you think the millions of people throughout the world, who are suffering through no fault of their own, should be helped?” he said, “And do you think a Global government that would give from the better off people to the poor would benefit them? ”
“I think people should be responsible for what they do, for their own lives.” I lamely replied . I was astounded. One world government Jehovah’s Witnesses! Redistribution of wealth. Who Knew? I was holding back my feelings. Maybe I misunderstood?
He went on, “Do you know the prayer, the Our Father?” he asked.
“Do you mean the Lord’s Prayer? What do you think I am , a Catholic? It suddenly dawned on me that they had probably been Catholics before becoming Jehovah’s Witnesses. Oops.
He went on, “The Lord’s Prayer talks about a Global Government.”
“I thought it talked about God’s Kingdom,” I replied.
“No, it talks about a Global government here on earth.”
“What Bible are you reading, anyway?” My voice was rising, but I still felt in control.
He squinted his eyes, pursed his lips, looked at me and said, “The Bible says there will be a Global Government here on earth.”
“What ARE you anyway, a couple of COMMUNISTS!!”
I slammed the door in their faces. The girl’s mouth dropped open and her eyes got big. She looked like she was about to cry. The guy stood behind her, pushed his lips into a tight sneer and his eyes into thin slits of hate while he stood his ground before finally steering the girl away from my front door, across the lawn and away.
We are farther along that Road To Ruin than I ever dreamed. I never knew there were One World Global Government Jehovah’s Witnesses. Did You?
