Of Course, We Knew This Was Coming

BERN, Switzerland (AP) - The Swiss could soon be voting on whether lawyers should be allowed to defend animals in court.

Look, none of us condones animal abuse. However, that doesn't then logically mean we think that animals have the right or ability to hire lawyers to defend them in court. It is one thing to watch and enjoy a movie, such as Ratatouille. It is quite another thing to believe that rats are little people. C'mon folks, even as a little kid, I knew the difference between a real rabbit and Bugs Bunny.

When did we let the wackos start to run our lives? When we lost our way. When we decided to start attacking and tearing down the foundations of our society.

When things were tough, such as during the Great Depression and WW II, our nation honed what was to be called The Greatest Generation. Family, thrift, hard work, faith and a belief in our nation's founders saw them through. Today, we are overfed and underchallenged, so we have time to think up these ridiculous and self destructive concepts. No wonder the headlines are all about Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and the Olsen twins. We don't hear much about Lincoln, Jefferson, Washington, or Franklin. Same thing with our sick sister, Europe. They have lost their way. Demoralized. No longer believing in themselves as nations, having purged their values and dispensed with their heroes.

So, we get this kind of foolishness. Garbage in, garbage out.

Idle hands are the Devil's playground.
