Sometimes (often now) I think I’m experiencing a long-term flash back from the acid tab I never dropped back in the 60s or 70s. Life simply cannot be this surreal.
College students so incensed by truth and honesty that they have to hide from the reality or see a psychologist…or the psychologist tells them to sequester themselves in a safe place until the shuddering eases. Political correctness overcomes and stifles free speech.
We now have:
A front running presidential candidate under FBI criminal investigation for top secret national security violations who continues to garner more campaign funds from foreign sources and government contractors. There is more doubt about honesty and integrity surrounding her, her husband and their family foundation than any other crime syndicate in history. However, her supporters routinely dismiss the allegations or mightily defend against her every action. The news media regularly fails any mention of her short comings.
Another presidential front runner says such outrageous things even his own mother would cringe when he speaks.
A third presidential candidate who only recently dropped out of the race garnered strong (riotously strong ) support. He openly stated that he would follow the path set forth by Alinsky, Cloward, Piven and Marx and bring to the U.S. the same failed socialist system that has produced dictators and brought down the economic systems of countries throughout history.
A president, and proclaimed Constitutional expert, who exerts more power than allowed by that very document. When the courts decide against his moves, he continues to enforce his unlawful mandates or has one of the agencies under his command “regulate” them into enforcement.
A congressional majority from the opposing party who ignores or approves the unconstitutional edicts, rules, regulations and fines imposed on the public. They continue to fund such unconstitutional mandates as imposed health insurance and relocation and Welfare benefits to illegal aliens.
A political targeting of citizens by IRS, DHS, DHHS, EPA, DOJ and other federal agencies, apparently at the behest of the White House.
An apparently politically partisan Supreme Court rather than one impartial and dedicated to upholding the Constitution.
An administration infiltrated by appointed Muslim Brotherhood members that sides with foreign terrorists over American citizens.
Today, if the LCD screen on the cash register goes out, a high school graduate cannot give you the right change for a five dollar bill when the purchase is $3.58. If the register doesn’t tell them to remit $1.42, the cashier has to call in a manager. Depending on the age of the manager, there might still be a challenge. Common core math tells them that $1.20 and $2.00 might both be right if they can verbally justify the number.
Want to have a little fun? Next time you have the opportunity, give one of these fifteen dollar an hour scholars a five dollar bill for that $3.58 purchase. Then, after he or she has entered the amount into the register, say “wait a minute” and hand over another sixty or seventy-five cents and enjoy what happens.
*CAUTION – Do not do this if there is a line behind you. It’s not fair to them.
