Blindly we borrow, seeking climax in the afterglow of a fantasized future. Thus discriminating, we shell game a cashless culture, averting our eyes from a self-gratifying Norquist nodule ringing cash-flow from cash only Americans — increasingly addicted to the erection of what’s in our wallet, instead of carding political hacks to determine whether hero or Opioid dealers.
Echoing the intimidation of invading European immigrants, we rough-ride wave wielding paleface artifice — preserving the right to squander what Teddy and Barack reserved — diminishing Utah monumental heritage by a Corporatism addict compensating for his inadequacies, abusing the good laid bare before him, while endorsing, for minors, sexual assault to garner votes for GOP tax plan raping We the People.
Lacking the desire to define from within, we forfeit our 1776 investment, risking moral bankruptcy, by choosing self-righteous hypocrites, over Good Samaritans, enabling off-shore deposits, post drilling, instead of wedding us vs. them into The Common Good.
Failing to heed history’s lessons of the rise and fall of empires, we invite national suicide. Forgetting over-taxing technology does not embellish our enlightenment, nor connect us to our Indivisible potential, we ignore, Rome was not build in a day, omits its better half: America will not fall to foreign invasion, but from the Neros we elect as sea to shining sea gatekeepers.
After ingesting Trump’s Britain First Video retweet and dining on an over-abundance of angry, fear mongering sloppy seconds from phony patriots projecting Fake News, as prophylactic against catching the increasingly unbiased evolution of our U. S. Constitution – are male Supremes blowing in The Right wind?
Have redundant talking points from corporate puppets mesmerized us with streaming oblivion? Have we become too acclimated to the loss of truth, being taken for a ride on, A Streetcar Named Desire, conducted by a groper-in-Chief cuckolded by his own inspirations: the South Shall Rise Again aspirants?
Rushing to acquit miniscule tax brackets of Holy Grail donations from super wealthy, are Chuck Grassley, Lindsay Graham, Orrin Hatch, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan’s House of ill repute, gambling that all Americans are like 71% of Alabama Republicans?
Let’s not excuse Trump’s angry, compulsive and seemingly irrational behavior with an escape jail insanity clause. Self-delusion, lack of empathy and a superiority complex, are insufferable but neither illegal nor impeachable.
Trump may indeed be infected with self-serving delusions of saintly grandeur, but he is still a self-possessed, self-promoted and self-confessed sexual predator, and those who support his reign over truth, propagate one party rule that anchors Checks and Balances, to the greater of two evils.
Indeed, there is tyranny, as much within as without our borders: traitors wearing stars with red ties to blue suits giving a wink and a nod to Tiki-torch bearers, committing assault and battery, wreaking havoc and vehicular murder.
However, we set the trap which most endangers our Democratic Republic, by abandoning pro-action and increasingly indulging in political reaction – like a schizophrenic pendulum swinging uncontrollably, between holier than thou hypocrisy and Corporatism’s immorality.
Mueller’s, In Like Flynn, trumps Pence, giving us time to put away treasonous things and with the courage of an Alabamian teen, exercise our legal right to expose the blatant shame of deplorable hot pursuit of self-aggrandizement, by the Don Family Sham.
However, doing good often ignites a resurgent evil, fighting back to regain lost power. Remembering for every action there is a reaction let us prepare for probable backlash against allegations of sexual misconduct ignoring our 6th Amendment, by standing tall for a woman’s right to enjoy the same privileges of any swinging male appendage.
Yes, once again America slows at a dangerous intersection. Bearing Right, bodes incalculable harassment from collusion between Wall Street and Capitol Hill, camouflaging Red Mapping by mortally wounding our 2020 census — to forever white wash Gerrymandering.
To be certain, our American Dream has been molested by trumped men and women, but raising the equity bar for all women, races and creeds, we remove the anti-American fingerprints with which trumped Republicans have profaned our Statue of Liberty promise — holding the watchfire torch, warning, he who is without honor cannot preserve, protect nor define, American character.
Awaiting our courage to catch up to our outrage, revelation is, we are in a great uncivil war with the failures of unfettered male power being increasingly exposed, revealing that our holier than thou, international superiority complex, having always been founded on the sands of time, has been slowly washing away — even as we granted women the right to elect misogynistic, we built that, men, without granting full constitutional citizenship — and bestowed the façade of racial equality without a decent minimum wage or gender income parity.
The more our fantastical leaders of politics, finance, religion and Fourth Estate, fascinate us with hyperbole, platitudes and the hubris of sensationalism, the more we allow our American Dream to be submerged into a culture of might makes right, faking stability under an umbrella of, alternative-facts.
Suddenly a bucket of ice on our culture of, not my problem acceptance of the domestic violence of pharmaceutical opioid pushers, man-handled girls, predatorial career harassment, onslaught of male imposed assault, rape by both military and civilian family and friends — has stopped the presses.
Truth be told, such headlines have been hiding in plain sight, within the lies we’ve told ourselves. Now, summoning the honesty to pull back the veil of secrecy cloaking our averted eyes, we may find redemption.
If, despite media’s overkilling of our need to know, transforming newsworthy, into recall of over the backyard fence gossip — diminishing with each retelling the essential focus — lubricating us from outrage to numbness, there is, nonetheless, more to immorality than declassifying America’s secret sexual societies: sinners, cheaters, anti-gays in precarious fantasies and fetishes.
Still mired in sexual struggle between what constitutes our wistful national character and moral fiber, versus the reality of objectifying girls and women, while lusting for short-term gratification — our hearts and minds remain as MIA as the October 2016 exposure of Donald Trump’s 2005 bus conversation with Billy Bush.
Sex is not the most important issue in our struggle to be of good character until, pontificating a pompous public love of God and Country as shield from the discovery of our power-lust for carnal dexterity — while wallowing in sanctimonious deceit, failing to practice what we preach. Must we bequeath the lie that sex is about provocative fashion, but not, 7th Avenue enslaving the image of women, marketing it as accessories for male prowess?
From Cosby and Columbine, to Sandy Hook, if The Pulse of America is a Las Vegas massacre, then we doom ourselves believing that it’s more important to protect the life of the unborn, than honor the virtue of teenagers, safety of college co-eds and security of female staffers.
When there’s a cross between what sex we preach and teach and the sex we practice in bathroom stalls, as church and community leaders, preying with, the laying on of hands to comfort women, we’re self-crucified.
This is our story and if, of thee I sing, is to be resurrected with any credibility, we need to realign our vision with a renewal of justice and equality for all – protecting accuser with our empathetic trust, and the accused with the right to remain silent, even if not innocent, until proven guilty. The integrity of Exceptionalism lies beyond ratings craving myopic media and mob rule rush to judgement — to cleansing ourselves of the stains of Congress, casting calls, Main Street schools, churches and community centers, as well as K & Wall Street suites.
Sadly, our current uncivil struggle is reminiscent of the national chasm thrust upon Abraham Lincoln – worst still, some young Americans are now possessed with the madness of hate.
Our nation is being raped by self-inflicted domestic terrorism, and to the extent we grant permission to invade our civilian government with Generals, an AG who can’t remember anything and the normalization of neoNazis and constituents sympathizing with child-molesters — the insulting culture of second-class citizenship, is the wall behind which we hide our feminine side.
