Yes, things look bad right now. We are on an eight lane highway to hell, though in the same old handbasket. But things have always looked bad, and stayed bad until they got better. That’s the way of it. The proper response to the question “Will this rain ever stop?” is “It always has so far.” But some people always see the worst. Take the London riots and the Philly flash mobs, burning and looting. Things look bad, yes, but they’d look a lot better if you had a gun.
Yes things are always looking bad
To those whose times are come
But then the times they always are
Not quite so bad for some
Cassandras always see the worst
They never see the sun
But Pollyannas smile because
They’re carrying a gun
