There’s so much going on – so much evil, so much sadness and so much greed at the same time much less in one day, it seems impossible by design for the average person to comprehend the situation we as a society are in. Politically, culturally, socially, all a mess.

I was at my son’s little league game today and parents were placing bets on whom they thought the next icon would be to go which is interesting since not many cared to discuss the tragedy and pain inflicted by another mass murderer this one named Anders Behring Breivick. Jared Lee Loughner, Nidal Malik Hasan, are other mass murderers who claim political cover for their deeds.

But there was little interest in discussing the fortunate timing of this deed in Norway at such a critical time. The interest was clearly on Lindsay Lohan, who, surprisingly Lindsay Lohan, while most agreed would wind up behind bars, was not the favorite to wind up dead but….. Miley Cyrus. You mean Hannah Montana? Yes. Some thought Justin Bieber, others gave Paris Hilton a vote of confidence saying she had really “pulled her act together” and still others could not remember the name of “that girl from Sin City and 8 Mile” (Brittney Murphy). And on the news the reports talked about Amy Winehouse being in the same category as other mis-fortunate 27 year old rockers such as Jimmy Hendrix, Kurt Cobain and others.

With all due respect. As good and as soulful as Amy Winehouse’s voice was, she certainly doesn’t belong in that company.

It was all I could do to focus on my the game which is turning out to be my son’s team (The Astros) best game of the year, a shut out 3-0 – and not pass out in the Phoenix like heat and the death toll in Norway climbs. Meanwhile the Banksters (cross between Gangsters and Banks get it), have some cover while they’re putting on a show of negotiation.

You see, Amy Winehouse or 92 civilians in Norway aside, the business of the banks and debt needs to continue. Another reason why I like Life Insurance and the variety of protections it affords but that’s a discussion for another time. The fact is that Greece, Spain, Ireland, Iceland, Lithuania, Portugal, and soon other EU countries will be owned lock stock and barrel by the IMF. Oh and remember that guy Dominique Strauss Kahn – the former head of the IMF? How convenient that sex scandal.

Just goes to show how shallow the attention of the American people is. And what’s really important to all too many of them. Look at the picture of Lindsay Lohan and admire her nails and don’t think too much. Or click the image and think a little deeper about what’s going on. And more importantly where you, your family, your loved ones, and all of your individual and combined futures fit into that same frame.
