The Ugliest Thing on This Planet
And sometimes the most beautiful.
The human being.
10,000 people are dead and their relatives don’t even know who they are.
A quarter-million people are displaced from their homes.
A unique piece of America is destroyed, probably forever.
Environmental damages are inestimable.
Gasoline prices are beyond comprehension.
This disaster is not about the President of the United States.
The President of the US didn’t cause this, but it also didn’t happen to him. None of those floating corpses are his relatives. The White House is intact. His limousines and helicopters are tanked up with plenty of fuel and future tanks won’t come out of his wallet.
The President handled it no better, no worse than all the other wannabe presidents, than any other president in history would have handled it. This was a human failure. Not a political one.
But the political opportunists, the king worshipers the media parasites, the latter-day Joseph Goebbels devote their energies to attacking and defending the President.
This damned country is in trouble.
The President didn’t get us there and he probably can’t get us out of it. We’ve got an immediate problem of refugees and the aftermath of the storm, and we’ve got another immediate problem of the price of fuel.
Neither of these giants can be better brought down from the beanstalk by anyone spending another sentence attacking and defending the President.
Let’s give it a break. For once, lets nail the mouths shut on the demagogues, the opportunists, king worshipers, and devote our energies to the future. It’s time we tried to think of ways to get ourselves out of this mess we’ve gotten ourselves into.
Kings can’t do it for us, and wormtongue wannabes can’t do it for us.
Americans are going to have to figure this one out for themselves and demand real solutions from the imbeciles we’ve elected to public office and their spiritual brethren character assassins who’d profit by our turning our attentions to them, rather than to the problems at hand.
Let’s give it a break
