Two wars in which not only we already lost but also it is just a matter of time until we have a horrible casualty score.

Paralysis of law- SCOTUS leads the effort to make our country fully lawless. With the last decision about indefinite administrative detainment upon suspicion of being a "sexual danger' the line was crossed- we do have lawlessness and it is official.

Paralysis of effort- our government is incapable to protect our country from the Gulf Oil disaster- they just cannot do ANYTHING decisive.

Paralysis of values- if Sarah Palin is considered a Values Person, the Arizona abomination is considered a law and the label 'Tea candidate' is now a positive advantage for a politician- that means we all are getting nuts in exponential rate.

Paralysis of economy- war had paralyzed our economy and only thieves thrive.

Paralysis of society- 90% of the social definitions we use ( liberal, conservative, responsible, civil service, government, education, etc) are either used wrongly or abused deliberately. Ignorance had taken over and the MSM deliberately promotes it.

Paralysis of the Professional Work- we had effectively destroyed the professional work by outsourcing, lies, greed and intellectual dishonesty. THERE ARE NO GOOD CIVIL SERVANTS IN ALL THE BRANCHES OF OUR GOVERNMENT.

And last but not least- it is a cult, folks. US Christianity, the supermarket of Jesus, the Market Guy had created a multiheaded monster. One of those heads is Sarah Palin. Another is Rand Paul. There are many others, all bad, all 666 of them. They all are doing their utmost for the Highest. It is the matter of who the Highest is, don't you think?

Ah, thinking, it is so worrisome.
