House of Mirrors Hell

I have come to the conclusion that our country has entered the door of the house of mirrors.

Some lunatic on TV, Glenn Beck, raises so much hell about one of the President’s advisors that he, Van Jones, has to give up his job.

The President of the United States wants to speak to school kids about how they should work hard and complete their years of education. In our country at this time, kids have to get permission from their parents to hear the speech. How did it come to this?

There is an insurance bill in the making that could greatly benefit a whole lot of people in this country who are not covered by any sort of medical , yet the republican party opposes it. I don’t think they are so much opposed to the bill as they are opposed to it getting passed by this President.

Just like in a house of mirrors, at this time in our country, things look contorted, ugly and frightening. Where is the door and how do we get the hell out of here?

It's scary, all right, PoP.

Still, there's this possibility of a little bit of hope:
Remember back in the mid 1970's when the country had tilted way, way to the left? A lot of people [on the right] were absolutely sure we were on the wrong track. And they got busy. They started pushing the country to the right.

Well, this is the logical outcome of that scenario. The country has tilted so far right it's scary not just to the libs but to the middle-of-the-roaders, too. And people to the left of the wackos [and that's most of em] are starting to get busy.

So --just maybe-- we'll start pushing back. It's taken us long enough.

As a cynic, I feel, short of real political cataclysm (revolution, Force-10 scandal), the best we can ever hope for is legislative gridlock.

you summarized it perfectly. it is a crazy, loony bin at this point. A few, like Bill Moyers, are pointing the way to rationality. but i'm afraid not many are listening.....
