‘Unsustainable’

[Sung to the tune of  ‘Unforgettable’ by Nat King Cole]

Unsustainable, that’s what you are.

Unsustainable, though near or far.

That’s why darling, it not obtainable,

For everything is unsustainable,

And now this blog is unsustainable, too.

Nope, not ending the blog.  Just got busy with the end of school and having children at home.  But suddenly, everything is ‘unsustainable.’

Have you noticed?  I mean, I wish I had a dollar for every time they said it on the news, or every time I read it in the paper.  As usual, I’ve composed a list.   Here are all the references just in the last week or so:

The Debt is Unsustainable- Bernacke

Gaza Flotilla Crisis Unsustainable- Obama

University Funding Unsustainable

Middle East Status Quo Unsustainable- Biden

Meat Eating Unsustainable – Really, I kid you not.

State Entitlement Programs

England’s Soccer Team Payroll Unsustainable

Organization of American States on Unsustainable Path – Hillary Clinton

Dependence on Oil

Wheat’s Decline

Immigration Charitable, but Unsustainable

Global Population Growth

The list goes on and on.  Honestly, this is just what I found in a matter of twenty minutes. Do these people not have a thesaurus?  Aren’t there other ways to say it?  ‘We are unable to maintain…’  ‘We can no longer afford to continue…’ ‘ We can no longer uphold…’

NEWS FLASH:  THE OVERUSE OF THE WORD UNSUSTAINABLE

IS NO LONGER SUSTAINABLE.
