Coming Out In April, 2023
Fess up, everyone: Who hasn't been enjoying the Chinese balloon story? All right, it's serious business, I get it: this was some kind of Chinese spy gizmo and it invaded our airspace (which is ours, not God's right?).
But, come on, people, if we're telling the truth, who didn't find the whole thing funny and whimsical? Who didn't chuckle picturing a big white Chinese balloon floating over Montana?
But the now the Chinese balloon is down and our bit of fun is over. Now we have to sit back and watch American and Chinese leaders bicker and posture and toss back and forth macho threats and hostile language and ramp up world tensions, as if things aren't already tense and bad enough, and scare us all to death. And instead of being able to enjoy the good laugh we had over the Chinese balloon, all 326.7 million Americans now have to to be enraged against all 1.393 billion Chinese and they against us. All so a few alpha males at the top can engage in a club-swinging contest.
But then, most of the world's trouble and suffering come from a few alpha males at the top who need to engage in club-swinging contests.
They sure know how to spoil our fun.
