The Wrong Impression

The Wrong Impression

You know what my biggest fear is? I am starting to believe that instead of this period of American history going down as the most corrupt ever conceived, it will all be glossed over by none other than the folks who are bringing these atrocities into our living rooms.

That the sitting president (I refuse to capitalize this word) has committed countless felonies, is irrefutably obvious. That his henchmen who serve as our leaders are happy to comply with his agenda, is equally so. Since these predators now control the media, what is to stop them from simply rewriting what’s going on, the way it has been done in so many instances throughout our nation’s history?

The ongoing glorification of everything that is white, is sickening. The hate crime just perpetrated in Portland, defies comprehension. And yet there are millions of Americans who are cheering this white supremacist’s actions?

I saw the notification that assistance for impaired children “had quietly been withdrawn” by Congress, and I am no longer shocked. No longer do I question how these individuals can continue to lay siege to the weak and impoverished.

I got over that last January, when I saw how eager these “leaders” were to support the preposterous selections for the “president’s” Cabinet. What a joke.

Billions upon billions in tax cuts for corporations; more and more cuts in assistance for the poor. 

How do you phrase that in an eighth grader’s history book, so that students don’t get, you know, the wrong impression? I mean, on the one hand we have the Constitution guaranteeing the right to pursue happiness. 

On the other hand, our “leaders” have taken every precaution possible, to strip millions of Americans out of their last vestiges of hope.

Welcome to the Land of the Free and the Home of the One Per Cent: 1 for you-99 for me! You have to love this wonderful country in which we live.
