The End of the World As We Know It (and I feel fine!)

The world was sure to end if ever we ended up with Commies in government. Then it happened. The world didn’t end.

The world was sure to end if black people ruled the country. Then that happened. The world didn’t end.

The world was sure to end in degeneracy and moral decay if we legalised gambling. Now there are a number of casinos around the place and we have a national lottery. The world still hasn’t ended.

The world was sure to end in hellfire and brimstone visited upon us by a wrathful god if we permitted gay sex. Then we legalised same-sex marriages. Weather forecast is for clear skies, fine conditions and a light breeze.

The world was sure to end if we allowed people to smoke dope, leading down a slippery slope to the sure and deadly enslavement of the entire population to heroin and LSD. Then cannabis got legalised. The country isn’t stoned yet.

Are we getting a message here…?
