Email from a friend: To call the quagmire in our government a swamp does a disservice to swamps. What we have is a cesspit of venomous vipers that are willing to take down the presidency and the country to protect their fiefdoms. These pit-dwellers are vile and bloated with power over the people of America. They tax trillions of our dollars to spend on causes that further their agendas of hate and discontent. They are winning.
President Trump is surrounded with traitorous party members that smile to his face while plotting his demise. The Progressive Socialist Party gloats and sneers at the President’s inability to hold his commitments to the people that elected him. There will be no draining of the pit. There will be no flushing of the sewage mains, and there will not be reforms. Why should there be? Why would the creatures of the swamp want to end their own circus ride? The dwellers are paid and fed, chauffeured and quaffed on our dime. They arrive penniless and leave rich. They spew their ignorance of governance with bombast and fistlets of faux rage.
I despise my government because they despise me. I curse them because they curse me. I fear them because I cannot strike back.
The ballot box did not work for us. Our votes meaningless.
What am I to do?
Email reply: Yep, I know, but you ask a tough question and I have no ready answer. Globally, we are fighting (half-assed) in a religious war on two fronts, where none of the combatants are worth a tinkers damn. This is basically a holy war that has been waging for over a millennia. At home, it’s a case of “death from a thousand cuts”: Our cops are vilified and criminals are glorified…and hows that working out? Ferguson, Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, and now Charlottesville, to name but a few and each one divides and scars us. And lets not forget San Bernadino, Boston, and that reminds me of Eric Holder with his work place violence at Ft. Hood. (Nothing to see here, move along folks!)
As strong as we may be at fighting external threats, we have a very weak, very divided society at home. Dopes and socialists want to erase our history and fundamentally transform America. Our society is getting dumber by the decade too!
How can we survive when we have too many doing only what’s good for them and not what is good for America? There’s too many takers, too many wearing blinders and too many opportunists looking to exploit whatever comes, be it Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, LaRazza, MoveOn.org, Meccha, Earth First, etc.
The pressure keeps building and building….and some day our bubble is going to burst. How could it not?
Maybe ignorance is bliss? Let’s turn off the news, have a beer and watch a ballgame while we still can.
