I could come up with no better title which would express my present deepened state of anguish. Anguish is a full bodied word that describes mourning, the rending of one’s cloths in sack cloth and ashes, the wailing of weeping women, the gashing of teeth. Misery exponentially manifested to its apex in a crescendo of unmitigated forlornness.
The tide of current events in the United States of America, my country, my nation, is to me unpalatable. It seems that we Americans have reached an unassailable chasm, a rift, a divide, that separates its citizenry. I am of a mind that most Americans have an adequate amount of common sense and practicality. A modicum of civility towards one another in that we can simply disagree without disparaging others as if they are a demonic plague infecting the common populace. I deem it not to be a plague but a pathogen that has infected Americans causing them hate and despise their fellow countrymen.
Our elite politicians in Washington DC are the instigators of this disparity. They are the American Royalty with their aloof snobbishness. They elect people among themselves and groom them to conform to their standards of decorum. To a politician it doesn’t matter if you are Democrat or Republican because you are all of their breed. Roman Patricians dictating their prerogatives with snide back room deals, scratching each other’s backs and pretending discord but with their amiable smiles and decorum. A veritable pit of vipers.
Why? Because someone, not of their ilk, their country club click, won the presidency. How dare him! A person they can’t cajole or persuade, a maverick that is coarse and rude with an unprecedented ambition to succeed and get it done on time and under budget. A rich blue collar who works for free, no salary. A man that counter punches and tweets rough and impudent insults at everyone who insults or attacks him. A brawler for sure. I do believe even I have some problems with his personality and his tweets but I wholeheartedly approve of his policies.
I am reminded of the scripture reading in my church today; Psalms 82; “God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the Gods. How long will he judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy, rid them out of the hands of the wicked.
They know not, neither will they understand: They walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. I have said “Ye are Gods; and all of you are children of the Most high. But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes. Arise O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
Please just substitute a few words and you will get the point. The congregation of the mighty (Congress) they rule among themselves (Politicians acting like Gods) How long will God accept their wicked behavior? (Congress) Be just and quit using the poor, indigent, our military veterans, LBGTQ, immigration illegals and such as your political pawns. Our politicians walk in darkness, absorbed by their own interests. All of them are egotistical self-centered bureaucrats who think of themselves as Gods. All of their smugness is vanity and they will die as normal men afflicted by their sins. Our government is broke and out of line and needs adjustment. Like the slave whispering in the Romans General’s ear as he enters Rome in Triumph, “all glory is fleeting”
Politicians! Evil Incarnate! The latest scandal is the Jeffrey Epstein debacle. The Democrats attacked Alexander Acosta, Secretary of Labor, and got another one of Trumps Cabinet members to step down. Yea for the idiots! If it hadn’t been for Mr. Acosta, Jeffrey Epstein would have done no time at all for the sex trafficking of young girls. Why was Mr. Epstein given a sweet deal? Because he was and is connected to Bill Clinton. You Americans really think we would have heard any of this if Hillary had won the presidency? Why Hell No! New York and Florida let Mr. Epstein off easy because of his connections with the Clintons and other notables. Really! Bill Clinton’s 26 trips on Mr. Epstein’s private jet without his Secret Service detail on board. Just one big orgy for good old Bill. Bill also loved those young black Haitian girls after the Haitian earthquake. Why should we care? Justine Smollett getting off because the Obama’s put their fingers on the scale. Harvey Weinstein getting sweet deals because of his Hollywood and political connections. JFK and LBJ and then Bill Clinton, all womanizers and now we have a Republican, Donald Trump. Oh the Democrats are like frenzied sharks but it’s like the fire calling the kettle black.
Does anyone in America belief any of those young girls in Jeffrey Epstein’s underage sexual trafficking network (his stable) would testify? Especially against Bill Clinton or any of the hundreds of famous notables Epstein furnished those young girls too. They will be paid off or disappear without a trace and they know it. People like Bill Clinton are untouchable even though he has a track record of having sex with any young girl, be it intern, Haitian refugee or paid prostitute furnished by Epstein. At least Trump expelled Epstein from Mara Largo for his indecency with a young girl. Powerful men are untouchable! Sad!
