Rule 1

Expect nothing.
Hope for everything.
Navigate the two.

– Smith, 5.9.2015

Trying to reboot my inner happiness factor after outliving my youthful innocence, but the Killer Klowns of the GOP — Cruz, Huckabee, Rubin, Paul, Santorum, Christie, Perry, Bachmann, Brownback, Rick Scott, Tom Scott, Scott Walker, Ben Carter, Romney, Palin, Limbaugh, Lie O’Reilly, McCain, Boehner, McConnell, Beck, Jindal, Jeb Bush, and their gang of far-right Christian fundamentalist racist sexist hatemongers — make it a hard go. Not to mention Faux News.

These people are neither moral nor honest . . . or, if they are being honest about their beliefs, then they’re extremely ignorant of both the Bible and the Constitution, or insane, or working for the dark side, possibly all three.

George W. Bush lowered the Presidential intelligence bar so far and Sarah Palin made flat-earthing so acceptable that we’ve entered a moral black hole where knowledge, competency, history, science, facts, honesty, truth, justice and the American way have become unacceptable abominations.

Don’t know if it’s the result of dumbing down due to TV viewing, chemical additions to our bodies from corporate malfeasance, or if there’s simply too many people and not enough intelligence to go around these days, but it’s hard times for those of us who believe in fairness, logic, and justice . . . the old do as you would be done.

As ultra-conservative Republican 1964 Presidential candidate Barry Goldwater said about the Christian right, “Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they’re sure trying to do so, it’s going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can’t and won’t compromise. I know, I’ve tried to deal with them.”

Time to cull such sick flux from our body politic.
