that's all folksPolitics! The last few years have been consumed by politics. Recently the United States is even more consumed by politics, and the joke is it’s a joke, we are a joke. One would think we, in all our stupidity, are the laughing stock of the world.

One has to ask him/herself: what other country puts non-citizens and illegal aliens ahead of its own citizens and ahead of its own citizen taxpayers?

One has to ask him/herself: what other country allows an illegal alien to sue a city and collect a large monetary award? makes the legal taxpayers pay the award?

One has to ask him/herself: what other country even entertains a city suing the Federal Government for money when the money is attached to a bonafide law and the city is publicly violating and advocating against that law?

One has to ask him/herself: what other country spends nearly as much money per capita on education as the United States spends yet performs as poorly in worldwide standings?

One has to ask him/herself: What other country has spent the amount of money we have spent on a war against poverty and has seen no real, tangible change in the poverty rate or the demographics of the poverty?

One has to ask him/herself: what other country allows spending billions of dollars on elections when some of its people are starving?

One has to ask him/herself: what other country blames violence on handguns as opposed to the users of the handguns?

One has to ask him/herself: what other country pays for the research into a given topic and then prosecutes non-government-paid scientists whose findings do not agree with the government’s paid-for findings? Or: one has to ask him/herself: what other country allows science to be skewed and then demands its people agree with the skewed science?

One has to ask him/herself: what the hell is going on here?

 The questions above hardly scratch the surface of the idiocy in which America has become steeped.

Why?

Why have we reached a moment in America when greed and selfishness are at a height perhaps never seen before and where personal interests supersede the better interests of the country? Why have we come to this self-searching moment, a moment where all of us, collectively and individually must decide if certain political power aims and ambitions are more important than the welfare of the people who are supposed to be represented? than the welfare of the country itself?

Just a few names: Al Gore, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama.

What happened to those like Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George Bush Senior and Junior who, whether you agreed with their politics or not, did their jobs and left the government quietly to become supporters of worthy causes and advocates for the government?

The contrast of the groupings of people is representative of why we are where we are and what we have become.

Man is by nature selfish and greedy.

Over and over we are seeing this in this period of America’s limited history. If we don’t do something to curb these qualities in our leaders, in our people, it will be as Porky Pig said: Th-Th-Th-Th-That’s All Folks!
