Neo-Pagan Modern Thoughts On Society

Hey, whiney little residents of Ranch Palos Verdes, here’s a thought: If you don’t like the native animals of your residency why don’t you just move? I am sure you can afford it, unlike many other residents of some international impoverished villages.

There are many things in life that we can complain about. We can complain about smog, traffic, shopping hassles, road rage, walking rage, Venus Williams sparkly creeping outfits, nutty preachers who want to burn other faith based manuscripts, not getting the job we always wanted, another Bush as president, something dopey that Sarah Palin said again, the faltering economy, or countless other things in our lives. But peacocks?

Several residents in the posh (no relation to the skinny Spice Girl) community of Ranch Palos Verdes in SoCal are complaining about the over population of peacocks in their million dollar neighborhood. Never mind the fact that the peacocks were there first! Never mind the fact that peacocks are excellent guardians and there is no need for a neighborhood watch program with peacocks present. Never mind the fact that they can put their crummy little electronic alarm clocks away and depend on a natural alarm clock, much like your ancestors used to do with roosters crowing, the sun rising and other natural phenomena.  Winey residents complain about the loud thump on their roof as the peacocks land there, or the loud noise that the peacocks make through the day and especially in the early morning.

Hey, whiney little residents of Ranch Palos Verdes, here’s a thought: If you don’t like the native animals of your residency why don’t you just move? I am sure you can afford it, unlike many other residents of some international impoverished villages.

Or how about this, how about we switch homes. You can have mine and I get yours. Here is a list of what you will get compared to what you are losing:

  1. You will get the chucka-chucka-boom-boom musical melody of passing low riders in place of the often considered serene sound of a peacock’s call.
  2. You will get the occasional bang-bang from a gang shooting going on a few blocks away in place of the same serene peacock call as above.
  3. You will get the wake up call of a loud, ear splitting gas propelled leaf blower in place of the early morning wakeup call of a peacock call.
  4. You will get sound of fire engines, ambulances and police sirens as they speed to the sight of a gang fight in place of the evening call of your friendly peacocks.
  5. You will get the knowledge that your house may never sell for the same amount you paid for it for the lovely distinction of knowing that your house is probably double what you paid for it even in a faltering economy.

Wow, sounds like a great deal to me! ANY TAKERS?
