We’re making progress. We’ve now gone from basic incompetence to unseeing.
One of the scariest things that can happen is when you’re driving down the highway at 60-70 mph and a newspaper blows across the road ahead of you. It rears up and wraps around your windscreen, momentarily rendering you blind. You don’t know whether to jam on the brakes or keep moving. You do both as your bowels empty.
This, of course, as opposed to aiming your vehicle straight at a bridge abutment and giving gas. In the first instance you are a card carrying member of the human race having come face to face with mortality; in the second, you are a suicide.
Someone once said that a man without history has no future. As a narcissist, Obama’s history began on the day he was born. As a racialist, Obama’s history is full of deep-seated resentment. He is not aimless. He has his sights trained like a laser on the bridge abutment. The sooner we learn this, the sooner we may be able to do something about it.
As for the up tick in this year’s Christmas shopping, remember that last year wasn’t so hot either. It may just be that we’ve decided to spend that dollar while it’s still worth 70 cents.
