   All these distinguished guests.

   Not one of them can match my simple, dearly beloved late aunt Bess"s phrasing, when she frequently intoned: "Oh, I'm all right. The world's all wrong!"

   Distortion aplenty on the political scene abounds, and just doesn't stand up to scrutiny.   There's a lot amiss with the national political picture, and no one seems to know how to set things to right.

   Yet, each of the distinguished guests on news talk shows comes back to central points:

   - We as a nation cannot seem to arrive at consensus.

   - Everything is caught in quagmire of fast setting congressional cement.

   - Members of Congress vote nay on measures they themselves have collaborated in writing.

   - Elections have devolved into, as phrased by House Speaker Pelosi: "government by the money" whereas it should be "government by the many."

   - And now purgation of voters and effectively blocking turns our democratic republic into a revolving door of incessant bureaucratic travesty!

   Where lays any sense at all in this state of affairs?

   And where, pray tell, can one find any centrist or moderate politicians to broker sensible legislation in this trying era of decrepit polarization?

   So now the gap between rich and poor, working class and corporate voters widens more and more.   What Reagan, turncoat Democrat, initiated, successive Bushes's have turned into concrete set hard, imprisoning the endangered middle class behind zoo bars.

   Mind you, that's constructor's jargon for the hideous financial capitalization and stratification of our laws and society. It's a culture in which labor cannot compete with the glut of highly paid lobbyists from multi-national corporations, mega-corporate banks, pharmaceutical companies, powerful legal firms, and other thinly masked evil villains.

   In all of this the tiresome reference to health care reform as "Obama Care" turns my stomach.   Images of Social Security being dubbed crippled and portrayed in a wheelchair as "FDR-Care" come sickeningly to mind .

   We've at last at least settled upon the notion that -- of course -- a tax is a tax and not anything but such.   Why, but why, oh why, did we ever need   the Supreme Court of our nation to tell us that?!

   A rose is a rose by whatever color. And FDIC remains stably, of course, an essential working tax to Social Security and the later added Medicare by LBJ.
