A nation in crisis

Whether you see it as a Constitutional crisis or as the many individual scandals the current Oval Occupant has, one thing is clear we are a nation in crisis.

Scandals now too numerous to list: a border being trampled on, our laws being selectively enforced or ignored, accountability at an all time low, and a WH resident that many see as impossible to impeach. It’s like one of those steamy soap operas that ‘has it all’.

This twisted scenario plays out while the national press, media plays Tiddlywinks. TiddlywinksIf they need a story, which can occasionally happen, they can just ask someone in the administration or their shadow press relations for a recommendation. So much of their coverage could be programmed by the administration. What’s the problem with that?

As the nation is mired in one scandal after another, it is strange how the narrative becomes about those “nuts” talking about so-called “phony scandals”. It’s a surreal place even Orson Wells couldn’t have imagined. Equality is a euphemism for get your share, and some will naturally be more equal than others. Everyone demands their share except on accountability.

We go from one election to the next, with a pause for intermission between where nothing can be done because this or that is reserved for the next election. Can’t get ahead of ourselves. And “we the people” are always trying to keep up but predictably wind up a few steps behind. Nothing is what you see in front of you, and there is always a plausible explanation — okay, not so plausible.

For their part, the elite ruling are always running to try to stay far ahead of us, or our wrath…whichever seems the greater threat at the moment. We are asked to participate in the election process but cannot be expected to understand the issues correctly. That’s why we need their interpretation for us. We could not get the proper perspective without their enlightenment. It’s all very complex, you see.

If we are as dumb as they think, then it is an indictment on electing them. It’s a double-edged sword. “We the people” get lectured about accountability and tolerance, while their ruling class has neither. Sound sort of depressing? Well, welcome to 2014, and the long range forecast is no better, since things do not change. Maybe the cast of characters is altered from time to time but the script remains the same.
