You will often hear pundits and politicians say that America is a country of laws. In 2021, Is it?
We live in an instant gratification society. Legislation has been compared to sausage making. Most of us love a grilled brat at a tailgating event but almost none of us either want to think about what goes into it and fewer yet want to visualize the process. If you think that opening was strange it gets stranger.
Basically 20 years after it started the American war with and occupation of Afghanistan finally ended last week. It was carried out under four presidencies, two of each political party. The blame game is on and I have to weigh in on it.
It is Friday afternoon as I pen this. I needed to disclose that on two accounts. As expected, despite Mike Lindell’s proclamations to the contrary, Donald Trump was not returned to the Oval Office on Friday morning. (Who said Friday the Thirteenth was bad?) That would have no doubt been the biggest political story of last week. The situation in Afghanistan is both dynamic and of rapidly evolving, therefore some of the information contained within may be very dated by publication time.
Today I want to talk about a bi-partisan – but heavily skewed to the Republicans – problem in America. Those who monitor rather than read me will be pleased in that I’ll actually say a few critical things about some Democrats. They deserve it and their fear of those who accept right wing mythology has everything to do with it.
