"Hurray for Washington!"

Hurray for Washington! by By Mary Theroux

Go to the link above and read it, and then consider...
Has politics ever been anything but a puppet show?  Ignore that fact that you may have liked some of the shows more than the current one.  It's all smoke and mirrors and you are forced to "enjoy the show" at the point of a gun.  Well, how often are you really forced to participate?  Sure, you may know that certain silly individuals wearing the ill-fitting hat of government demand you sit up and pay attention, but how often do you actually get grabbed if you ignore them?  I'm finding it harder and harder to care what those pathetic control freaks shriek about.

Yeah, more people are beginning to figure it out, but politics is always about celebrating something largely imaginary and silly.

Hollywood and DC: a perfect fit.

  1. Politics may be silly to you and me, but the power mongers in Washington take it dead seriously. Remember, a fascist police state is not brought about by a violent revolution. It's brought into being by one law at a time, for the common good, of course. Rather like putting the proverbial frog in a pan a cold water and turning the heat up slowly untill it's cooked. As to popularity, Mussolini was very popular with the Italian people at the beginning of his fascist regime.
