While We Get Ready For the Superbowl Our Fortunes, Opportunities, and Liberty Slip Slowly Away On the Tide

Sessions faces a Congressional  “grilling” says the news this morning. That conjures images of poor old Jacques DeMolay the Templar being roasted alive in Paris in 1292,  but the press throws hyperbole and metaphor around the way monkeys fling dung at the zoo; only less accurately.

Does anyone think Trump won’t get away with absolutely everything he wants,  or that the Cable News Nitwits won’t present a panel of apologists to tell us it’s all pretty normal and this is just another president like all the others and we have to let him do his job like good little patriotic Americans do?

There are scales describing the strength of hurricanes and tornadoes and earthquakes. There should be one for hypocrisy.  Call it the Trump scale, although it would have to be logarithmic as the Trumpist junta has long surpassed anything we’ve seen in American politics.

More conflicts of interest, financial and patriotic than you can shake your pitchfork at; more uncaring and arrogant condescension than any French aristocrat from the 1780’s.

An administration organized completely around cronyism and nepotism and personal gain and he’s going to get away with it while Congress goes through the motions, nodding together like serious statesmen deliberating reasonable decisions — while Kellyanne the harpy and the vituperating vermin at Fox explain our horror as just more Liberal propaganda: while we get ready for the Superbowl and our fortunes, our opportunities and our liberty slip slowly away on the tide.

    Your last line is riveting. I can’t stop thinking about it as our liberty slips slowly away on the tide….

    You sire and one fine scribe, as your words ring true in every respect. We, I’m afraid, may well be doomed.

    I read this several times and I have no idea what point you’re trying to make. I have to conclude that there is none and these are the words of an idiot; sound, fury and all. But it’s always amusing and it’s frequent to be called an idiot by someone with half your IQ and I’m sure Obama is used to it.

    If, as it appears, you’re still trying to graduate the first grade and haven’t learned to compose a coherent sentence or to use punctuation I would cut you some slack, but I suspect you’re older and should be ashamed of not knowing a damned thing about the events of the last decade and ashamed of thinking you can post something here for people who can read to see. Trump can barely speak English, nor can you and the world would be better off without either
    of you.
