The Devil Doesn't Do Details

Nobody’s Opinion: Every one has heard that old saying, “The devil is in the details.” That’s the first thought I had in my mind this morning when I woke up. Flashes of just what WERE the details of anything that was happening anywhere were too much for my little nobody mind, still…the general overall feeling I had was not good.

Usually, the best advice is, go back to sleep and try again.

Most of the details of the world are hidden. Like fireflies they are elusive. You can’t catch them. Anything could be suspected. You might as well guess.

Why have there been so many fires in the last ten years? Why are there so many tornadoes? The earth’s weather hasn’t changed that much. Who’s behind this “environmental scare?”

You know how it is when you just wake up sometimes. You’re not ready to get up. You’re legs and arms feel like they are filled with clay…especially if the day ahead is filled with boring cleaning tasks.

Something about picking up a few million gumballs in my backyard did not excite me.

Just where was that wonderful dream I was having last night? The one where I had won the lottery and designed a whole house with the most wonderful mirrors and giant beds, and hundreds of rooms filled with treasures from all over the world with an indoor tropical heated pool, that lead through every room of the house…

(I’m a regular Frank Lloyd Wright in my dreams.)

Details…details…South America is being taken over by communists, and NAFTA, and CAFTA basically sold out all our jobs…still the cities have been dying for over forty years, it was just the last plug in the plan.

Jimmy Carter helped to elect Chavez---Chavez loving Castro. Are they going to stuff him and prop him up in a bed?

Jimmy Carter also is trying to destroy Israel.

And what’s with Africa? Why can’t they just come at least into the 18th century?

And why do Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton side with communists? Why do they put down the country they “served” at every opportunity? Why do we put up with them? Details….

And how come we never hear the word…communists. President Reagan said it all the time. He knew it. He talked about it. He hated it. He destroyed it.

Can you see our current President George Bush calling anyone a communist?

No. Not a good detail to think about.

I closed my eyes and had a vision of President Bush, holding a head of lettuce---smiling and posing with South American Socialists, acting just like a salesman promoting American products---no longer a commander in chief, no longer a President of a sovereign country, but a man working for…who?

Who the devil IS he working for?

Details…details…America is surrounded by trouble. Forget Iraq. That’s just one of the many. Instead of the real details about Iraq, we get “scandals.”

Scandals are our daily bread. We eat all our meals devouring the latest insidious scandal along with our Cheerio’s.

The brave American soldiers fighting daily, doing great things for people who hate them….the details…ignored.

On the other side of the ocean we have China, who bought Bill Clinton’s soul for the price of a country.

The details will never be known.

But, the price is us. China is putting all the money they earn off us into the biggest and most powerful military the world will ever witness…they will be the most powerful nation on the earth thanks to our politicians. They can wait, they think long-term.

We may not want to admit it, but the damage has already been done. All China has to do is sit back, and help Iran do the dirty work.

Do I have enough water stored?

Details…England will be taking over by the Muslims. The population of the West is dying off…the baby boomers, the Europeans, the Japanese. It is the rise of the Asian overlords. But, how did this happen? Was it just the greed of a few hundred?

What are the details?

Western religions are being demolished to make way for communism. Easy to do with Brittany Spears taking up so much time, and kids watching MTV.

The details of a woman without underwear, a baby stolen here, boys molested there…the details at six.

Details, there are no real details, as in the case of Sandy Berger.

Sandy Berger reminds me of the guy who ate hamburgers in Popeye comics…I can’t think of his name. (Was it Wimpy?) Berger of course doesn’t remember the details, only the construction yard.

Jesus…I turn over. I fluff my pillow. My mind as usual, is not listening to me.

The sixties…details: communism introduced into the universities, into the sex revolution, into the feminist revolution, into our schools. Slowly, the communist/socialist were building their foundations, handpicking their future social engineers, the Clintons, the Bushes, Albright, Kissenger, Arnold, Soros, the New York Times.

The pact with the devil will take your soul. That’s another famous saying.

Now we are seeing a woman who has no business whatsoever becoming President, almost demanding the job.

Details….President Bush has already signed us into a North American Continent Merger. All the actions of our politicians, who by the way, are all millionaires representing the rich and their own portfolios…do not care. President Bush wants this merger big time.

We are now a bi-lingual nation. Press one for English, two for Spanish. If you speak German, you're out of luck.

Whole cities are being taken over by Mexicans. We are now gringos.

Ahhhh, I have to quit taking that melatonin.

Being groggy, the second thought came, “The Devil Wears Prada.” This brought visions of Meryl Streep…not a great image to wake up to.

Life can be cruel.

Since I’ve never owned anything by anyone called Prada, there was a groan, turn over again.

Then I thought of Karellen.

Some of you are thinking…who? Karellen was the alien Overlord in Arthur C. Clarke’s 1953 classic, “Childhood’s End.”

If you have never read this little novel, you should.

In this novel the aliens (called, most appropriately, the Overlords) came down and basically take over the earth and transform the earthlings into a one world socialistic utopia.

Here’s a quote, from page 17…

There had been no warning when the great ships came pouring out of the unknown depths of space. For six days they had floated motionless above the cities…those mighty ships have come to rest so precisely over New York, London, Paris, Moscow, Rome, Cape Town, Tokyo, Canberra…(and YOU thought "Independence Day" was without a predecessor!)

Karellen was the alien point man for earth. He had horns, a long tail, was big and red, in other words…he looked just like the devil. The Overlords did not want the earthlings to see them for good reason. They knew that they would be considered…well, evil.

Karellen had fifty years to bring humanity to one boring utopia, which he did. This utopia, according to the book, was one where everyone played at sports all days and spent the rest of their time being entertained. Of course there were no more wars, but there were also no more inventions, and all creativity had stopped.

“Fifty years is ample time in which to change a world and its people almost beyond recognition. All that is required for the task are a sound knowledge of social engineering, a clear sight of the intended goal, and power.”

Well, it has been a little over fifty years, and this statement could have come out of the mouth of any one of our current politicians, even Newt.

And the devil of it is, the details of just how our “overlords” have manage to take a thriving America and basically sold it out for this utopia socialistic society, by casting it into the fire in the name of globalization…which is only good for the few as we are now seeing, will never be known. It was all done so slowly…fifty years.

Wal-Mart is supposed to be our utopia. That’s what the gracious Overlords have given us---oh and cell-phones, that they can turn on and listen to us with.

The real trouble is the details that the devils don’t want us to see. And it’s the secret details that are the real evil that even I don’t want to nightmare.

So, if the devil really is in the details, all of us are in for a big surprise when they come out.

What am I saying, of course the details will never come out.

Not on this planet.

Nobody’s Perfect: Yes! I got up! Wouldn’t you?

I couldn’t remember the entire book, it’s been some time since I read it, but here’s another quote:

Utopia was here at last; its novelty had not yet been assailed by the supreme enemy of all Utopias----boredom. Mankind had grown to trust them (the Overlords) No wonder that people are becoming passive sponges, absorbing but never creating. Did you know that the average viewing time per person (for TV) is now three hours a day?”

How many hours do YOU watch?

Kind of makes you wonder just who the devil Arthur C. Clarke was hanging around with, doesn’t it?

Nobody Knows; Personally, I think it’s pretty impressive that some guy back in 1953 could predict with such detail, the way the world would evolve.

Nobody Cares; I’m laying off the melatonin tonight.
