I was just enjoying a You Tube video clip of George Carlin explaining euphemisms. One of the ones he commented about is how people try to soften the fact someone is dead by saying, "They passed away." Noo...they DIED!
As I thought about that in light of both my parents dying in the last year and a half I thought about an idiotic comment that seems to be the fall back verbal diarrhea of the JDubs recently. No, "I am sorry for you loss." No remembrances of the dead person. Just the stupid, "They are in the SAFEST PLACE OF ALL. Jehovah's memory." So why would they want to undergo life saving surgery or treatment. Just die and get it over with. And I thought IF that is such a perfect place why the hell not have all over eight million of them commit mass suicide, say for instance all drinking a fatal sip of wine at the memorial. What better way to show their submission to the governing body and their elders even if those instructions did not seem practical from a human standpoint, and the added bonus that they would suddenly "wake up" petting a panda or lion is "paradise"?
Okay, done with my little "rant".
