It's really that some people have figured out that they can lie, steal, cheat, molest women and children, commit voter suppression, commit voter fraud, tamper with witnesses, and obstruct justice with impunity, and nothing much will happen to them. And then they win elections. Apparently because enough voters think moral character is obsolete.

So America turns into a Third World Sh*thole Country, because that's what we deserve.

That seems to be the gist of it. Think of it as a sort of Banana Republic...

"Banana Republic" - we are responsible for that too. What I have never understood is why in the world would anybody believe us and take our word? In every war we have been involved in, I have watched us abandoned our allies, and translators and, in the Vietnam thing whole tribes of people. When we go to 'help' a nation its a miracle if anybody is left! We helped Iraq, for instance and only a few hundred thousand were left dead. If I was a religious person I might think that its all coming home to roost. The embarrassing thing is that we are doing it to ourselves! We are currently making sure that we create a national Covod-19 epidemic that just may reach the flu of 1917 (or 1918 according to the Jackass).

I have told my kids about all of this and am convinced they don't believe a word of it, ie. "Dad's going off again!". One thing the Donald has done is to make the above stuff more believable. The possible interesting part is that the above is what we have done to others. The list of what we have done to ourselves is longer. I sense that the entire rest of the world is watching our behavior with amazement and wonder. We are an empire with our over 800 bases in 70 nations, other than ours. We have the greatest modern day empire the world has ever seen and our wealth staggers imagination. In spite of all of this we don't even talk about it. Its just taken for granted. I have always thought most of this stuff was a little strange. I think that is because we really don't think of that when we consider who and what we are.

Anyway............
