SHIP OF STATE OR SHIP OF FOOLS
The Money Party at Work
We keep doing the same things over and over again and expect different results.
Who are the officers guiding our ship of state, steering us through the troubled waters of a failed economy and two tragic and costly wars?
Do we have bold leaders ready to move us away from the failed policies that generated a free market kleptocracy for insiders and their masters, the ultra wealthy?
Are they brilliant tacticians who can think far enough outside of the box to get us out of calamitous foreign adventures that generate nothing but death, destruction, and ill will on the part of those we seek to "help"?
At the start of President Obama's administration, it was clear that this would be a cabinet that spanned those few degrees of that mythical political spectrum called "the middle." The political middle, like the Hobbits' "middle earth," is a contrivance, although much less artful. It's where you're supposed to be if you're the president. You stand for those who count; those with the vested interests in the economy. You are that special gatekeeper at the intersection between avarice and the nation's wealth.
Will anything truly change?
We can tell by the key players in domestic and foreign policy.
