“O wad some Power the giftie gie us . . .”

HA! whaur ye gaun, ye crowlin ferlie?
Your impudence protects you sairly . . .
Robert Burns in “To a Louse”

No verbosity today, just a handful of links to what could easily be grouped into a collective website named insanity.com, or something similar if that name’s already taken. So here they are, eight of the week’s Nutcasearrhea highlights (not counting the R-Debate):

Steve Deace Links The Kim Davis Saga And Gay Marriage To 9/11

Tony Perkins: ‘Lawlessness’ Under Obama Paving The Way For The Antichrist

Tony Perkins: ‘I Fear For The Country And What May Occur’ If Congress Doesn’t Defund Planned Parenthood

Beck: America Will See Riots, Chaos And Assassinations In 2016

Linda Harvey: US Must Fight Gay Rights, Not Climate Change

Ann Corcoran: Syrian Refugees Will Establish A Muslim Caliphate In America

Michael Savage Likens Pope Francis And Bernie Sanders To Pol Pot

And finally, the week’s pinnacle of Teh Stupid:

Ted Nugent: Only Donald Trump Can Save Us!

That stuff is so completely nutso that I feel obligated to toss in some evidences of calm sanity — concepts NOT based on the Republican / Fundamentalist-Christer mantra of hate, fear, war, and greed, some more peaceful images of the real world,  that vast arena “out there” that the insane among us have completely dismissed and abandoned. Like this first one — a fly on a wildflower.

Sep 6 bug on wildflower 1806

Or how about a pair of unidentified bugs attending to their daily wildflower duties:

Sep 7 Bug on wildflower 1823Sep 6 Bug on Wildflower 1811And this, a pair of itty-bitty flies hanging onto what will likely prove to be the Last (yellow) Rose of Summer:

Sep 10 Bugs on yellow rose 1835And finally this one. A goose doing something not even Donald Trump can’t manage — taking an afternoon snooze while standing on one leg on a mostly submerged rock a hundred yards offshore!

Sep 15 Beckwith goose 1879I’d sure like to see most any one of the nutcases cited above try that!

There you have it, proof positive that wildflowers, flies, bugs, roses, geese, and even submerged rocks “out there” are superior in virtually every way to those insanity-driven human hordes “in here” that have come to haunt the planet!

Robert Burns concluded “To a Louse” with this great idea:

O wad some Power the giftie gie us
To see oursels as ithers see us!
It wad frae monie a blunder free us,
an’ foolish notion
What airs in dress an’ gait wad lea’e us,
an’ ev’n devotion!

Yep. That about sums it!
