    How high's the water, mama?



    Five Feet High and Rising
    - Johnny Cash


    My mama always taught me that good things come from adversity if we put our faith in the Lord.
    We couldn't see much good in the flood waters when they
    were causing us to have to leave home,
    But when the water went down, we found that it had washed a load of rich black bottom dirt across our land. The following year we had the best cotton crop we'd ever had.


    I remember hearing:


    How high's the water, mama?
    Two feet high and risin'
    How high's the water, papa?
    Two feet high and risin'


    We can make it to the road in a homemade boat
    That's the only thing we got left that'll float
    It's already over all the wheat and the oats,
    Two feet high and risin'


    How high's the water, mama?
    Three feet high and risin'
    How high's the water, papa?
    Three feet high and risin'


    Well, the hives are gone,
    I've lost my bees
    The chickens are sleepin'
    In the willow trees
    Cow's in water up past her knees,
    Three feet high and risin'


    How high's the water, mama?
    Four feet high and risin'
    How high's the water, papa?
    Four feet high and risin'


    Hey, come look through the window pane,
    The bus is comin', gonna take us to the train
    Looks like we'll be blessed with a little more rain,
    4 feet high and risin'


    How high's the water, mama?
    Five feet high and risin'
    How high's the water, papa?
    Five feet high and risin'


    Well, the rails are washed out north of town
    We gotta head for higher ground
    We can't come back till the water comes down,
    Five feet high and risin'


    Well, it's five feet high and risin'

    started a topic Yup, we're screwed

    Yup, we're screwed

    There's a big march coming up this weekend to "stop global warming". Everyone involved is feeling cumbia, we are the world, peace and love, etc. Many 1st world folks will fly to their marches to save the world. Chase Utley is a multi-millionaire baseball player who travels by air 100 times a year but he's..."marching because I know how important it is for all of us to face the reality of global warming.". This is how the 1% of the 1% see the world. This guy is financially 2 orders of magnitude away from most folks and thinks he's helping make a change. We're not Utley but most of us are an order of magnitude from this issue so no one here really cares if the world is heating up as long as Starbucks and Whole Foods is open.

    I'm sure Chase is a nice millionaire with his heart in the right place but like all of us, he's the problem...and he's doubled down to get 100X the money and with it, the security that most people will never have. I was watching the Alibaba IPO today, observing what a decent person Jack Ma appears to be and wondering who the humans will be that survive this experiment where we continue to turn up the heat. It probably won't be an issue for the Utley or Ma family but do you think your family will make the cut?
