Some general observations made by Ginger Marin on a variety of topics.
“There must be a reason.”: Not necessarily.
“God has his reasons.”: There is no God.
“Who are we to question God?”: Who do I have to be?
“It can’t get any worse.”: Of course it can.
It’s always colder than you think.
The surest way to have an accident is to rush.
Just when you think coffee is good for you another study comes out saying it’s not.
Contrary to what you may think, it is NOT raining on YOUR parade. It’s raining on everyone else’s too.
“God works in mysterious ways.”: Aside from the fact that there is no God, if there were one, I’d have to say that those “mysterious” ways always manage to fall in the same category: bad, stupid, nasty, unnecessary, mean-spirited.
“You make your own luck.”: Really? Please tell me how I can win the next $100-million lottery.
Who told Hillary Clinton that she looks good wearing light blue or mustard colored suits?
If they can make textiles out of marijuana/hemp, how come they can’t make similarly safe, useful products out of tobacco instead of those lousy cancer sticks?
When things go wrong in your life, do you often wonder “why me”? Answer: It’s because God hates you. Yes, the very same God who does not exist. It’s a pickle, that’s for sure.
Being positive doesn’t work. Save yourself a lifetime of disappointment, be negative instead.
“It’s the Law.”: What law? Whose law? What gives you the right to make that law? Is the law ethical? What if my ‘laws’ are more ethical than yours? Does the law make sense? Is the law outdated? Does the law do more harm than good? Are the persons, who are making the law, infallible?
Everything man touches, he destroys: bees, butterflies, every other species on the planet, the land, the oceans, the air and if that weren’t enough, he ventures into space and fills that too with his junk.
