A state of exhaustion

I'm tired.

I'm so tired that I've found it difficult to write for a few days.

But my exhaustion isn't physical. No, I'm psychologically fried - I'm tired of the lunacy that seems to guide our world in the early part of the 21st century. A lunacy that promotes narrowmindedness, celebrates self-centeredness, refutes reason, insults intelligence and breeds contempt for everyone and everything that isn't me or done my way.

It's the lunacy that believes "having an election" equates to democracy and that this democracy is a cure-all for every nation's civil ills.

It's the lunacy that votes terrorists, the murderers of women and children, into power in the name of freedom.

It's the lunacy that calls for the public defiling of the "infidel" nations and their religions, and then also allows rioting and acts of violent vengeance over satirical cartoons - thereby in some almost comical, yet very sad, way validating the entire point of the publication of the cartoons (ie. if you don't want to be considered barbaric, unintelligent, unreasoning, unthinking, fanatical and uncivilized, then don't act that way).

It's the lunacy that makes nations act like delinquent school children when negotiating nuclear proliferation. "Will so, will not, will so, will not, WILL SO, WILL NOT, GO AHEAD AND TRY IT, OKAY I WILL! ..."

It's the lunacy that still claims Iraq was involved in 9/11 and that a desire to bring our troops safely home is akin to being a traitor.

It's the lunacy that listens time and time again, with unfailing loyalty, to the words of a deceiver and believes every word of it without any regard to the deeds being done and actions taking place before their eyes.

It's the lunacy that still believes this administration supports the sick, the homeless, the elderly, the poor, the learning disadvantaged, the disabled, the middle class, the little guy, the veteran... the common American.

I'm tired.

How many times can a person smack themselves in the head and say "My God! Can't they see..."

Yes, I'm tired...

And my head hurts.
