America...the country of assumptions. Assuming this...assuming that. Are our charitable ways coming back to haunt us? One thing is certain, we are exsanguiating. financially, morally, physically and literally. As addicts of assumption, let's test these scenarios on our aloof perceptions.
As cities scramble to survive financial woes, what will become of all those rogue infidels tucked away in our prisons? Most who received a slap on the wrist for violating the sanctity of our laws, lives and limb. Will we have volunteers do their care taking? Perhaps, those of you who frown upon punishment will house them in your safe little abodes? China spends a bullet (and bills the family) on these scumbags, and we pamper and coddle them. Gang bangers of every denomination, infiltrating our military and our neighborhoods. Not good.
Ah...and China, with a population exploding at the seams, and an army ten million strong. Thirsting for new land masses to pollute and exploit. Islamic militants baptized right out of the womb. Russia and its missile shield phobia. Populations exploding everywhere. Throw away children even in our midst. Global food shortages. Death and disease as common as your last cold. Not good.
America is bleeding out, folks. The vultures of the world are watching with hungry and delighted anticipation. They know how lax and ridiculously preoccupied we are, with more pressing matters like a Barbie for our little girls, or play stations for our little boys. Who, incidentally, are becoming seasoned slouches. Then we have the older and wiser generation, so wrapped up in who is getting laid on "Greys Anatomy", they haven't a clue of just how dysfunctional the nation is. Any bit of fleeting excitement is all the fix they need. Case in point, the recent election which merely elected two men who will occupy a house made of glass. Not good.
Now, I know, you brilliant intellectuals, will have a clever rebuttal for this post. I also know, the idiots in our midst, will chalk it up to just another diabolical plot to throw them off their "I know it all" game. Those who genuinely reflect, will read the writing on the walls and prepare for the absolute worst. Not cower or hide, from these imminent realities, but face them with calculated resolve. To those of you who see the patterns of history unfolding yet again, I swear my allegiance. Even if the outcome is "peachy", we can say we never let our guard down. Right now, the only ones watching the gates, are nuclear warheads. If not for them, this country would have been overrun decades ago. We may still be the home of the free, but there is a dangerous shortage of the brave. Not good.
In parting...if you are delusional enough to think the men and women we put in office are the only salvation we have...you have issues. Remember, these are the same people who can't seem to navigate a single aisle. They are the ones who think their appointments come directly from god. Honestly, would you buy a used car from any of them? Probably. Not good...not good at all.
