California dreaming becomes California nightmare

first we became broke
& now
we are on fire

is this the end of the Golden State?
glad i've enjoyed for almost 10 years now
living here
'cause the dream is coming close to an end
it's more like a nightmare everyday

and then again
when i see how wasteful American people have become
claiming expensive technology to survive
that we cannot afford, use cell phones and flat screen TVs
but not for productivity but for "fun"
& then eating all the crap we can and see around
and driving over-sized cars in the freeways
living in houses full of empty luxury but lacking
education and morals... men caring about having money
but not on how it is obtained...
women with fake nails, and over-colored hair
and stupid men falling for them, and their boobs that
are huge, but fake...
as all seems to be in the US these days
even if one is not so religious
one feels compelled to think
is this some sort of ala Sodoma-Gomorrah punishment?
since most of the people are now lacking some
goddamn common sense!!!
maybe we are getting what we deserve...
or as Ignatius J. Reilly would say in one of my favorite
American novels of all times, people seem to be
lacking "theology" and "geometry"

read the excerpt:
Several of the outfits, Ignatius noticed, were new enough and expensive enough to be properly considered offenses against taste and decency. Possession of anything new or expensive only reflected a person's lack of theology and geometry; it could even cast doubts upon one's soul.'
~A Confederacy of Dunces, John Kennedy Toole

not sure, but hey! hope you've enjoy the fun
and wasting while it lasted you, 'cause now
we are as screwed (or worse) than any 3rd world country

and it's useless to blame the government, or the institutions
or the weather, or anybody else...
at the end, the only ones responsible for all this are
ourselves!!! (this stupid thumb-opposable human race)
which seems never to learn from its mistakes
A Confederacy of Dunces we indeed have been
when i read about assholes such as the idiot of
Kim Jong Il (should be Ill)
and other members of this race, i look at my cats
and apologize to them for being another human
oh if i had feathers or fur, probably i would be
more natural and healthy/helpful to this Earth...
and i wonder
why Dinosaurs became extinct? with their big bodies
and small brains they seemed to handle much better
this wonderful planet Earth than we do now-a-days
i say, let the roaches or the ants, or the bees
we are killing, rule this world!
they do know organization and hard work much better
than most people walking on the streets these days
and are much more considerate too!

anyhow, the scenes from Los Angeles on fire
are devastatingly sad, hoping that we Californians
can rescue the little that is left...

downtown Los Angeles and its cloud of smoke from the surrounding fires
