Ahh it’s morning in America. No really, it’s 9 AM and I’ve been reading my favorite online sources of opinion and commentary about the recent “wave” election. All I can say is wow, being right all the time is soooo boring. Not to mention it also infuriates everyone around me. Anyway, I knew that within 24 hours of being the winner by default, the GOP would quickly perform an about face regarding all their empty, gaseous promises of repealing Obamacare, sealing the border, stopping travel from Ebolafrica, and blah, blah, blah. As I have reported before, these bozos are not our salvation. And to top that, the GOP has misread (again) the will of the very people who put them in office. See, nobody I know voted “R” because they think the constipated-turtle Mitch McConnell or Oompa-Loompa orange Johnny Boner, I mean Boehner, were great choices based on their actions, or lack of them, in congress. They voted for the only opposition team on the field. I find myself wondering why they couldn’t at least pretend to hear what the voters were screaming.. which happened to be, “STOP!”
Because even though the American People have the memory of goldfish these days, the crap keeps pouring down so frequently that we can’t get rid of the smell. It’s one thing to have a scandal or two, an unconstitutional executive order or two, and then back to watching “The Daily Show” so we can guffaw at John Leibowitz’s contribution to our decline. The problem is that with the current administration it’s punch after punch, blow after blow (calm down Mr. Clinton), and no time to catch your breath and wipe off the blood. Everywhere I look I see not only the sad, inevitable failure of our Legislature, but also the tin-horn style dictatorship coming out of the White House. I think even the ignorant and blatantly partisan are weary of the gloom that overhangs this nation like fog on the San Francisco bay.
Iran is pretty close to a nuke. The economy is still tanking. Real unemployment, you know, the way we counted it when W was in office, is huge. Race and race politics have become disgusting and frankly tiresome. The press is a joke, nothing more than a modern day Pravda propping up its bad bet on Obama. Illegal immigration is rampant and unapologetic. What was once the mess in Iraq is now the growing caliphate. The gov’t is snooping on your phone and computer, choosing what healthcare you don’t get, and punishing anyone who brings it up. My whole life I’ve heard how bad Nixon was, but in truth, and in hindsight, the guy was a saint and protector of the republic compared to what we’ve got now.
Our wanna be Demi-God in Chief is the ultimate whiny brat. My mouth actually dropped during his press conference ( where once again he took no real questions ) when the petulant man-child said, ” Well, a lot of people didn’t vote……”, Now the guy is going to channel the will of the non-voter as well as ignore the will of the voter? Awesome. Even Bill Clinton, a veritable statesman by comparison, knew to come out and track to the center after he lost congress in the 90’s. I felt like I was watching the biggest temper tantrum ever seen by a grown man on television. Other than ignorant elitists and minorities who vote for color of skin over content of character, who is behind this buffoon? Seriously, I want to know. Because if you hated Bush then you must really hate this guy.
Add to this the disturbing two years to come. Here’s my predictions: Iran will get the nuke and either use it, or threaten to with great effect. The middle east will turn into two factions, Iran and it’s mullahs against the ISIS caliphate, competing for who can blow up the most western assets. Russia and China will throw off their shaky allegiance to the US dollar, at the same time hacking our banking and infrastructure, in effect defeating the once mighty America “without firing a shot”. Our own leadership will flood the country with the disease and ignorance of the third world and then let them vote, all the while stoking the racial divide to a boiling point. Add to that Soviet-style control of our flow of information by seizing control of the internet in the name of “fairness”.
I think, or at least I hope, that some are starting to understand what “fundamental transformation” is. It’s the startling realization that we elected someone who believes that in order to re-make us, he must break us. It’s not about arguing over the old issues anymore, because that is now a luxury we cannot afford. Without the framework of our constitution, and the unity of culture and nationality, the arguments will become infinitely more serious. You know, like how will you feed your family and survive in a world that looks nothing like the one you are accustomed to. We as a people have lazily allowed the true one percent, our Imperial Oligarchs, to take from us the control of the ship. The last election was a step towards regaining the helm, but much is yet to be done. Those who we have elected, no matter what they think, are not the Demi-gods of old…..they are just Old Demigogues.
