Looks Funny

Looks FunnyLooks funny?

Sometimes your inner voice says that something looks funny…

I didn’t say smells… just looks funny.

It’s the first warning that something isn’t right.

You keep it to yourself, but you keep thinking about it. Is it a danger or a lie? Something doesn’t add up. Maybe a bigger war is brewing in the Middle-East….? Maybe there is too much agitation in the streets? Or maybe a friend said something that was not fair or maybe half true. Nothing to laugh at.

Something is funny in our nation. Good people are hesitant or afraid to say what they really feel. Their values are being trodden upon. They remain quiet as they fear being criticized.

Is this not a preface to a war? A war within nation and self…. It is about good versus evil. We don’t want to fight with words… the easy way is with bombs. But this is within our borders. Through our silence we have allowed the noise of the “liberated” to drown out common sense.

Religions have retreated from politics. Maybe it is time to rethink this paradigm?

Media is discrediting itself by not honoring the core values of our nation. The media has become their own pulpit while demanding the church’s silence… Upside down?? Looks funny. Now you can laugh.

Let’s have congress wear red wigs and blue wigs whenever they talk…

Now that would look funny! LOL

What should reporters wear?
