If one was well enough to do everything that one needed to do to get the relief that one needed, then one wouldn’t need the help that one was attempting to get in the first place, would he?
Life is a Catch 22 of the universe.
He said, “I don’t understand why you keep on helping him.”
“I want to,” I said, “It’s a feeling I have to want to. What difference does it make to you?”
Meanwhile we waste time on bullshit. Suddenly it hits me how controlled our lives are. What served as warnings years ago has now come into play. We ignored the critics of our forefathers back in the day.
We’re tracked by GPS. Our cell phones and our credit cards are tracked. Their usage tallied and compiled daily. We’re forced to pay more than our share of taxes while the Masonry lead our government, their symbols lurking everywhere. Taxes were never meant for the small working class man like you and me, yet we pay our taxes every day, day after day.
Some refuse to see the small insidious ways we’re controlled by society and our jobs our families, our conscience which finally takes their place.
Now even Facebook and MySpace take charge and overwhelm me with enough rules to spin my head. Either I add too many or too little friends. They have trouble deciding. I’d think that adding friends would be a boon but Facebook and MySpace employees become dictators in another virtual reality.
It becomes more and more difficult to understand the world I’m living in.


  1. What? Facebook can do that? What?

    Catch 22. You slave all your life to be comfortable in your old age when you're too infirm to trip the light fastastic down every lane in Vienna.

  2. I have seen documentary movies detailing your speculations. Dunno how much is correct and how much fiction. I don't think anyone would be comfortable being monitored. Don't think it would be good.

  3. Life certainly sucks, but I still prefer it to the alternative. I agree with you, though. Did you ever hear an election manifesto where the politicians promised to make life more awkward than ever? But that's what they seem to spend their entire time doing. I keep wondering when the good stuff is going to materialise, like freedom, for example.

  4. Joy,thank you so much for dropping by my place.

  5. Great write Joy. During the campaign people were afraid of Obama socializing government. So untrue. What people should worry about is the far right and religious right creating a police state in the name of protecting us from terrorism. Our rights as Americans are slowly being usurped. One day we may wake up and discover our government owns us. Wait, that day is already here. :) jdr
