When I read The US is Coming Apart at the Seams in Bloomberg the other day, I thought no we’re not! We’re Being Taken Apart at the Seams!
The Bloomberg piece reads as if all of our troubles came out of nowhere…as if we just started to fall apart one day. Don’t societies naturally grow old and die just like people do? Except we were demographically young and healthy…a vibrant world power! The “falling apart” people experience usually comes about gradually with age, with the inevitable failure of our immune system’s ability to fight disease that kills most of us in the end. A few exceptions would be depression, drug addiction and suicide…which some might point to as prime suspects of our societal demise. Getting warmer…
Many people have been amazed at my pace of recovery from total bi-lateral hip surgery. I am 90% fully recovered in less than one month. This is my third week back to work. The people closest to me credit my “attitude” which is a word that suggests a very high morale. In fact, I would credit the surgeon…but he knows from performing 4-500 of these every year…replacing the parts are almost insignificant to the power of the Faith that nourishes the morale to energize every cell and accelerate the healing process!
That’s why I look at today’s headlines, take a step back and realize our “falling apart” is far from natural, it is 100% man-made!
“A Military Times survey of 2,300 active-duty troops found morale indicators on the decline in nearly every aspect of military life. Troops report significantly lower overall job satisfaction, diminished respect for their superiors, and a declining interest in re-enlistment now compared to just five years ago.”
I read this quote from an article in Military Times and I thought about the heroic struggle of a one-man-army named Montel Williams who spent a year fighting for the release of one of our marines left rotting in a Mexican jail, and the quality healthcare our veterans deserve from a corrupt VA Health System nearly as bad as the Mexican jail!
When you consider this in addition to the enormous purge of flag officers, Benghazi, the outing and subsequent assassination of Seal Team 6, the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the surrender of Iraq to ISIS, you realize that our own military is being systemically demoralized by design from within!
Add to that scenario the unfolding events here at home, orchestrated by the very same administration! The only politician in American History who needed a distraction from his own failure more desperately than Barack Obama, is Anthony “I’ll show you mine” Weiner! If Obama’s weiner were a metaphor for his performance on the economic and foreign policy stage, it would be perfectly characterized in the famous Seinfeld “I was in the pool, I was in the pool” shrinkage scene. Could there be a better way to distract Americans from their President’s shrinkage problem than to enlist the Cream of the Hollywood and Media Elites to produce the perfect emotion-packed and “deeply-rooted” Malignancy-of-racism narrative? They’ve even got the NFL on board! Where’s Tiger? As the Obama-Holder-Sharpton Gang rides again!
The mayoral face of our leadership dysfunction belongs to New York’s Bill de Blasio. That which Obama and Holder are busy “taking apart” on the national stage; the man Charlie Gasparino referred to as “dangerous” seems hell-bent on tearing asunder here in New York City! Dangerous is a very good word to describe a New York City Mayor who publically declares the police a greater threat to his family than the criminals, and then inspires the criminals to RESIST ARREST…and a whole new species of criminal that call themselves the Black Guerrilla Family to hunt cops!
Is there a more appropriate metaphor for the immune system of society than the very military and law enforcement organizations that defend and protect that society? All it would take now is a match!
…and it’s best administered before the match is struck. Barack Obama, Eric Holder and every government and private individual complicit in the usurpation of this Republic must be removed from office and brought to justice. This would include most of the current Washington Establishment and Media Executives.
Think of it as a very aggressive new “Counter-Revolutionary/Constitutional-Chemotherapy” form of medicine administered by our own Faith and delivered by the very same Angel in the Whirlwind who helped to resuscitate our forefathers! 🙂
