Tired Is No Longer Merely a Physical State
It's a Religion

Tired is no longer a physical or mental state. It is a religion. Being weary doesn’t come from merely physical labor or the mental work of balancing a checkbook…or deciding who lives or dies.

Tired is a silent surrender, the tender whisper of the Cosmos telling you that enough is enough; what’s done is done.

The religion of Tired does not believe that the world, as we were sold it, is manageable…like syphilis. In truth, it is controlled by old blood and old money. And all of the bookkeeping, explaining the endless numerical calculations that result in the expenditure of Giving a Damn, and the conceit that you can do something about the state of things, means absolutely nothing...but the lie of power; something a bullet could take away.

Give some thought, for a moment, the concept of Smoke and Mirrors. And, similarly, think about those who need the concept for any reason.

Wonder, for just an afternoon, who really cares about the state of their world beyond going to work and providing for their families. They can hold up as many signs as they want, and hang out at as many rallies as they wish, but the truth is they need to go home, get up, and provide for their puppies.

This, then, is the way the Elite see us, the Tired. Allow me to spell it out:

The Tired believe that:

•Anyone who achieves or seeks power in this world has no conscience.

•No form of existing mind games (read: processes) will accomplish anything but regulated control of what the masses are doing.

•That the media, entertainment and information venues that are currently branded as “legitimate” are controlled by a small minority with agendas that are, for lack of a better term, interesting.

Interesting is the base word for a famous Chinese proverb, in which we are living, and, amazingly enough, heralds the fact that the Chinese will control the world economy, if not more.

•Absolutely no one will do anything about this. No matter how many pick-up trucks you own, you won’t do anything. But it’s fun to bitch, ain’t it?

•Maybe the Chinese should control the world economy, because we have done nothing but been laid back as we screw everyone in our path. And we leave it to CNN, MSNBC and the major news media to tell us what we think. And they go home with multi-million dollar salaries, yet rail against capitalism. Much like Michael Moore.

•That we were meant to live in a world of honor, not being the sheep pen for the rich and the privileged nutjobs that really elect our presidents.

•That only REAL and TRUE change will come with pitchforks and torches, not the freakin' electronic voting booth controlled from Washington.

But, no one really cares. People love to be offended because they don’t really have to do anything about it. They can just bitch. Glenn Beck is a moron, Rush Limbaugh is a moron, and especially the ultimately uneducated Sean Hannity is a moron. You get ratings. You got this government elected just for your ratings. Drop your multi-million dollar salaries and DO something. But you won’t. You are the Jeremiah Wrights of the so called “Right”. You don’t really believe. But you’ll do anything to keep the cash rolling in. All this as you stab in the back people in your field that are actually fighting for principles, like Michael Savage in his battle with being banned from Britain. But because these “Special Education” boys don’t like an educated outsider, they ignore the reality of the principle: Freedom of Speech, the very corner stone of civilization.

But we are, on all fronts, the voluntary victims of liars.

You are liars. And you are nothing but puppets of The Way It’s Supposed To Be. At least take us out to dinner before your screw us?
