Ah, politics

Just read where a Democratic senator said the Republicans had morphed into a ‘cult’ that only had one agenda, keeping tax cuts for themselves and their cronies. I paraphrased that a bit, but I do so think he’s right on this. My gods, this country has lost it’s collective mind.

Yesterday, my homemaker told me that she and her husband had stopped to help a man having a seizure. The man said he cannot afford his seizure medication. This is America. No, wait. This used to be America. The true measure of a society is how it cares for the least fortunate in it. Our society says, “I’ve got mine, so screw you. Oh, and if there is any of yours left, give it to me NOW!” I would emigrate, but how would I decide where to go that isn’t just as bad, and who would take me in, anyway? It’s not looking good, folks. Not even a little bit. Does anyone remember the whole fall of Rome thing? Do you see any similarities? The rich play and the rest of society suffers. That is just not sustainable for any real length of time.

Oh, I am cheery today, people. Also, I am cheery today, people. And it’s still hot and soupy outside, and going to get worse tomorrow.
