What tower?

Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font

I am surprised no one has noticed the new building in our nation’s capital. It has been built while you were watching. Look how high our capital building has been raised. What, you haven’t noticed?

When you watch your duly elected representatives speak, look at the dazed, blank looks, from fellow legislators.

When you listen, you don’t understand what is being said, but notice others in the room have no clue either.

They are just waiting for their turn to speak; these learned legislators, these worldly, wordy, slingers of violent verbosity, haven’t a clue of what is being said.

They only wait for their turn to add to the noise.

Yes, we got trouble in River City, brothers and sisters!

Like most children, when I listened to bible stories, in church, I really thought they were just stories, to explain how we should live, not real things, that had happened!

Did you know almost all forms of religion

Have a story of the flood engulfing the earth. Can you believe the earth will be destroyed by fire?

How bout the part about there will always be wars and rumors of war?

No, we outgrew all those worries, when we became adults.

Well, wake up! Look at our nation’s capital. The bible has struck again.

It has grown so tall it has become a Tower Of Babel.

Let me ask you, do you understand what these people are talking about?

The only time I can make out for sure what they are saying is when the Texas delegations says "we are taking time off for a giant BAR-B Q!"

Well, at least it is happening to the right people! The press and TV are too busy re-interpting what our darlings on the left have stepped in. well, ‘ol abominable, stepped on his preacher’s toes, and this old gentleman won’t go away or shut up!!

Like an old friend and mentor, he is still trying to straighten his friend out. HA!

Poor little wicked witch of the east. Old Bill not content with blowing a cool sax starts his speech telling how good she is, then starts blowing his own horn, and talking with the other side of his face.

If you listen carefully, you won’t understand a thing, except what he will do if they get into the white house. The only thing I under stand is the music!!

Don’t laugh too hard, these are your elected representatives!

Tell me, when was the last time you understood over two sentences of a two minute sound byte?

Have you heard any thing lately, come out of the Capital that made sense?

Yes, the words are in our language, so why can’t they understand each other? While we slept, our diligent, doers of Democracy, our wonderful slingers of valiant verbiage, have made a bible story come true! They have, before your eyes built a Tower Of Babel.

I am trying not to remember how this story came out.

Now I am not the sharpest stick in this forest, but my acorns still run down hill. If some one doesn’t come save us maybe the rest of the story will come true.

I hope some one reads this story, and will let me know how it ends.

This is JOHN’S VU!!
