If Mencken is correct, and I fear he is, we deserve what we have, and we are reaping exactly what we have sown. If the fear, hatred, bitterness, open racism, greed and corruption now on display by the lying pig in the White House truly represents this great country’s “inner soul” then may God have mercy on us all.
It goes without saying that most good people don’t have a dozens of sexual assault claims against them, or over 2,500 lawsuits, or even a single accusation of rape of a minor. But then, most good human beings are not self-avowed sexual predators or pathological liars, either.
I served 4 years (1966-1970) in the Marine Corps. While in the Marines I learned a phrase that has stuck with me. Actually, I think all veterans are familiar with it as the phrase is common in all branches of the military.
The phrase is SNAFU. It is an acronym for Situation Normal All F&%#ed Up.
This is where our nation is headed under the #BLOTUS. We are heading for a huge and historically ugly SNAFU. And I, for one, don’t want this period to be normal for the United States. I don’t want my country to be characterized by the arrogance, greed, and pathological lying of one man.
We cannot allow this administration to be normalized. It isn’t who we are. And I hope it isn’t who we want to become.
Not everyone likes the truth. And not everyone will admit that documented facts are real. And there are some among us who refuse to acknowledge reality, even as they are stepping in a big pile of it.
Having traveled to, and having worked in over 100 countries, many of them dictatorships, I know what dictators look like. I know how dictators act. I know how they speak. That is why I fear this new US administration.
This is not about Democrat vs. Republican or red vs. blue. This is about the future of our country. I am not calling #BLOTUS a dictator. But, I am begging everyone to open their eyes and look at reality.
If it looks like a duck, if it walks like a duck, if it quacks like a duck, there’s a better than average chance it’s not a kitten.
