Good God, America is tiresome. We aren’t a country, we’re a blaring, nonstop infomercial for brutality. This awful government is staffed almost exclusively by unqualified, unfit, self-serving zealots who care nothing about humanity.
Sideshow Don blusters and threatens and lies, his GOP handlers pretend he’s rational, the Democrats sputter and wave toothless subpoenas, and the electorate — that’s you and I — can’t be bothered to care. We yawn and look away from the horror show along the border, ignore the powder keg that is Iran, shrug off the glaring corruption and intolerance, the allegations and deceit and towering ignorance.
And, yippee, here comes the Fourth of July. Let’s all gather to celebrate what? The loss of American decency? Welcome to the smoking crater, y’all. This train wreck is our America now. We own it.
