A yearend fiscal cliff(hanger) approaches. Around $2.2 trillion in sequestered budget cuts are scheduled. Trillions more are planned in out years. Social America is being destroyed. At issue is how much will be front or back loaded given dire economic conditions heading south.
Mum's the word from Tampa and Charlotte. Grandiosity has center stage. Pomp and circumstance substitute for responsible governance. America most often had pathetically little and none now.
Both parties believe America's future depends on greater wealth disparity, ignoring public need, waging war on humanity, silencing truth, and cracking down hard on non-believers.
Perhaps Isaac's fury signaled disapproval. Wait till Nemesis shows up. She's Greek mythology's goddess of vengeance. She also punishes hubris and arrogance.
She's here unseen. She's unforgiving. She's patiently stalking and preparing to make her presence known. She'll announce it saying "only the doomed" see her. Perhaps she has bankers, war profiteers, and corrupt politicians in mind.
She has lots on her plate to address. Fixing longstanding government of, by, and for America's privileged won't happen easily.
Conventioneers are oblivious. They're cocooned out of harm's way. They're bought and paid for to scam others. Political conventions lack legitimacy. Media scoundrels pretend otherwise. Like elections, they're theater. They're hype and pre-arranged duplicity. They mask double-dealing flim flam.
The entire political process is fraudulent. Party bosses, special interests, and media scoundrels play lead roles. Everything is pre-scripted. Secrecy and back room deals substitute for a free, fair and open process.
