The U.S. unravelling like big ball of yarn

 

“Like tiny gods, all that we say and do holds a power so great that any one of us in any given moment can be responsible for the birth of a new civilization or the collapse of our own.” A.J. Darkholme, Rise of the Morningstar

As the Trump presidency begins its 101st day of operations we should be focusing on the next 265 which will have more significance. So far he has converted the most powerful country in the world into a Third World Banana Republic which is divided amongst itself. Sporadic marching in the street, signals of alienation and misdirection from the commander-in-chief and a sense of hopelessness has enveloped a once proud nation.  His marching orders should be issued: “You’re fired!” — gc

  1. Well said Gerry. What are they waiting for? I thought he’d be long gone by now, one way or another!

    • Many of his “staunch” Republican supporters are waiting for him to take the country to hell in a push cart which he will do if not moderated. A real shame Susan.

  2. Sigh. Yes, he has not only made significant progress in destroying the humanity and environment of our own nation, but has also, in just 3 short months, destroyed our credibility with our allies and undone the good reputation we once had in the world.

    A reputation that we have spent more than two centuries earning. How long, once he is but a bad memory, will it take us to re-build that reputation? Decades, at least.

    He has turned the White House and the Capitol into a three-ring circus.

    I am so ashamed of my country right now. 😥

    • I think the country still symbolizes truth, justice and a way of life people from around the world want to become a part of.

      The dastardly parts are the men and women in political office who have in effect become Benedict Arnolds blatantly betraying their country to petty whims of leadership, delusions of grandeur from inexperienced statesmen and lacking the spine to confront the greed and corruption blatantly destroying the United States of America.

      All we can really do is pray and hope that common sense will replace the chaotic disarray rampant in the Oval Office.

      • I think most of us in this country still symbolize truth, justice, etc., but I do not think our leaders necessarily do. There is evidence that many of our allies no longer believe they can count on us, and these are alliances we have spent decades building. It takes so long to build a good reputation, and yet it can be destroyed almost in the blink of an eye.

        I don’t look for common sense to come out of the current administration, as I believe their goals are not aligned with those of people like you and me. My greatest hope right now is that the current administration, both Trump and Pence, leave office.

        I still have faith that the Russian investigations are going to prove treason, at least for Trump and a number of his minions. It needs to happen before he destroys what we have spent more than two centuries building! Sigh.

      • The word “treason” is the ony one that can reasonably desribe the mockery the current administraion is perpetrating on the AMerican public. Two hundred years of decency lost in a few months of hypocriy. Pray and hope Jill. Allwe can really do. 🙂

      • I certainly do those, but I also speak out, loud and clear, as do you, my friend! We must keep speaking as long as we have a voice with which to do so. 🙂

      • I agree with you 100 per cent. These days there is no longer a place for the “silent majority”. Hang in there and so will I. 🙂
