Idiot America


"Many of you have offered help. There is little that we can do but pray for those who are struggling," wrote astronaut Mark Kelly, husband of U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Arizona.

"The doctors are pretty clear that we just have to wait and see," Mike McNulty said. But he added, "I can only think that God has more important things planned for her in the future."

As everyone already knows, a deranged subhuman destroyed some people's lives in Arizona recently (6 dead and 14 wounded). This is a good reason to put idiots in asylums before it's too late. But this tragedy and how it could have been prevented is not what this post is about.

What bugs me about this disaster and every other disaster that gets reported in Idiot America is somebody always has to stick their Magic Man into it. Americans never miss an opportunity to show off how superstitious they are. Americans are well known for their stupidity and they are proud of it.

All we can do is pray? As if talking to yourself is going to accomplish anything.

God has more important things planned for her in the future? Mr. McNulty, what does your god fairy have to do with anything? Do you seriously think your imaginary Master of the Universe would get involved with one human ape's life on this tiny planet in the middle of nowhere?

Grow up Americans. Stop being superstitious morons.

I'm going to hope for Ms. Giffords recovery but I'm not going to talk to myself for her.

  2. I have to say, though, that the Hindu custom of sprinkling colored chalk dust around cracks me up more than Americans thinking they can influence a medical outcome with prayer.

    Still... if prayer is so effective then why did Judge Roll die right after Mass?

  3. I wonder if you managed to watch the Wednesday night gathering at the Univ of Arizona.. the readings from Old Testament etc by Janet N, Eric Holder, and then the Presidential address. I had to bail out real quick. :-)

    Lady Atheist,
    I am an ex-Hindu living in the US now. Wait till you learn and see more of Hindu customs. You will understand why I have gone nuts :-)
