- NEWS I FIND INTERESTING
Prior to 2015 there were a number of people who we would just write off as just plain ignorant, stupid, and had no business being allowed to speak to the public at large because you just knew they were going to say something stupid. Like Todd Akins, for example, saying that women had a special way of preventing a pregnancy when she was raped. When I heard him say that it was like Tom in a Tom and Jerry cartoon when he was running 90 miles an hour a suddenly ran in a frying pan or another massively staunch object which froze him instantly in his tracks. Boing!
What the f*ck? No, he did not just say what I think he just said. Impossible, No one in their right mind would openly say something that stupid. But, yeah, he kinda did say that, in public, where millions of people would know he said that. Well, we will get over that in time, hopefully. But will we? I mean we still had to contend with Christine O’Donnell and her confused mind about whether or not she was a witch or not, her satanic picnics, and her facts that masturbation was the same as committing adultery.
It just seemed that someone had opened the nut closet and they all just came rolling out. We thought that if we can weather this storm we can handle anything. How wrong can a bunch of common sense thinking bunch people be all at the same time? It is like we all woke up from the same bad dream into a worse nightmare. My head has exploded so many times that there is little brain power left. It is as if my brain had become so diffused it is like a BB rolling around in an empty boxcar.
How did we get from where we were, which was bad enough, down to the depths that we now find ourselves. Is it true that we now have a president who acknowledged sexually assaulting women, and has exhibited racist behavior? Is it true that instead of having a thoughtful person leading our nation we have a person who uses Twitter to announce policies for the country and to antagonize nut jobs like the leader of North Korea? Our president no longer abides by the laws and customs of our country. One that is trying to turn America into a country modeled after Russia in how we carry out our business.
What happened to our divisions of power so our democracy, or republic, cannot run amok and smash things like an angry bull in a room with red walls? Is this truly a nightmare that will see the end of America that once was a somewhat proud nation that could not be dominated by any other nation on earth. My God! My longtime favorite cartoon character Pogo was right: we have met the enemy and he is us!!!
