Lord save us … from ourselves
The world today sometimes amazes even me. Politics today, however, doesn’t at all. Pretty much everything that happens is a variation on a theme – and that theme is we’re served by the worst political class in our history (I’m talking generationally here, not just the last election). And there seems to be no relief in sight. We have a scam-artist in the White House now who has, in reality, never done anything of significance in his life up till now. And now he’s significantly ruining this country.
And in the wings? Hillary Clinton? Good lord. Or Jeb Bush? Lord save me. Or this – the darling of the Left, Elizabeth Warren:
Then there is the scandal-in-waiting concerning her sleazy scholarship while a law professor. She co-authored a highly-publicized study in 2005 that claimed that 54.5 percent of all bankruptcies have “a medical cause” and that 46.2 percent have a “major medical cause,” telling interviewers that those findings demonstrated the need for national health care. In fact, the proportion of bankruptcies caused by catastrophic medical losses is more like 2 percent. Her numbers were inflated by including “uncontrolled gambling,” “alcohol or drug addiction,” “death in family,” and “birth/addition of new family member” as “a medical cause.” In addition, spending as little as $1,000 in unreimbursed medical expenses over the course of two years — hardly unusual for a family — was enough to get a bankruptcy classified as “a major medical cause” even when the debtor himself or herself did not list illness or injury as a cause of the bankruptcy. A number of scholars have criticized the study as intentionally misleading.
Just what we need … another politician who uses corrupt studies to bolster her agenda driven objective. They don’t call her Fauxahauntus only because she faked indian heritage to snag a gig at Harvard. Another “professor”/Senator who has never done anything or run anything being seriously touted for the top job? [Is any journalist out there looking deeply into this? No. Oh, sorry, they’re all worried about Scott Walker not having a degree.]
Conclusion – it’s the electorate that needs a serious overhaul. Same song, different verse – you’d think the last 6 years would have cured anyone from looking at a no-name junior senator who has never done anything of significance in her life, but not the Left. Or the yellow dogs or the low information, government dependent voters that actually think government services are “free” and it’s the “greedy rich” who are the problem.
We’ve got a mess, the tipping point seems to have been reached and the only thing that might save us is if a statesmen or woman with leadership credentials steps forward.
Meh – we’re screwed.
