What Future?

A wise and witty WP blogger concluded his most recent post in the form of a question…

“Have you ever experienced a future so unlike anything you’d expected that you simply had no basis for knowing what to do next?”

My short answer… YES!
My somewhat longer reply:

Are not all of us, who harbor, hone, honor and hold dear our critical thinking skills, already experiencing such a “future”? One that, indeed, is so unlike anything, even in our worst recalled nightmares, that there’s no way in hell that we could’ve ever envisioned and expected it.

Let’s take a closer look at this (far from complete) list of wide-awake, real world nightmares.

  • War criminal / occupier Putin’s nuclear saber rattling
  • The climate change crisis that may prove irreversible
  • The global coronavirus pandemic’s untold fatalities*
  • A looming insurrection that could trump January 6th

* 6 Million+ (worldwide) / 1 Million+ (stateside); and still counting!

Upon factoring in corporately owned and operated, know nothing / do-nothing obstructionist (f)lawmakers and their unconstitutional voter suppression (f)laws, how can we begin to formulate even a rudimentary what to do next game plan?

While what follows is tongue in cheek, this pretty much does sum up my exasperation; my evaluation re just how screwed over humanity really is…

Hey Klaatu! Hey Gort! Hey any learned, kindhearted ETs out there… way out there!

Where the hell are you when we really need you?

It’s a damned shame that spacefarers Klaatu and Gort (his take
no crap from nobody robot) are just fictitious characters. Now,
more than ever, we, the defenders of equality, diversity, civility,
tranquility and liberty, need alien allies to help us realign all of
the “almighty” autocrats’ alleged minds to conform to our own!







Robotics vs. Psychotics (One Quick Limerick #030)


The so-called-prez, Kim Jong-Un, strut and snort,

Rattle their nukes and our nerves just for sport,

Will their demeanor, psychotic,

Prompt intervention, robotic?

Will Earth be visited by Klaatu’s Gort?


If you’ve never seen the classic, 1951 Sci-Fi cinematic gem, which inspired the above limerick, you can read all about it over at Wikipedia and/or watch the entire film over at YouTube (regrettably, the images are not centered properly but it’s the only free of charge clip I could locate).
