In the first post of this series we pointed out how major political figures at times are oblivious even to the obvious.
Dredd Blog has also mentioned in various posts from time to time how this dumbs down our national debate to the point where the obvious is becoming our "wisdom".
How is it that our leaders are "wise" if they see the obvious and proclaim the obvious, but are only "in a bubble" if they fail to see the obvious?
That is tragic indeed, because the truly wise people see not only in the bright light of day, but they can also see in the dark, having a form of vision known as wisdom.
It is obvious that the USA is morphing away from a kinder and gentler nation into a meaner, more brutal, and heartless nation.
Our wars are becoming endless, and now our debates are becoming about how much money we are going to take away from the elderly, after they have paid their whole life into Social Security, upon the promise of having it for their retirement.
What about that "full faith and credit" of the government thingy?
Not only that, the American Dream is being taken from them and other feeble folk to give to the military so the endless wars can become even more endless.
Yes, the American Nightmare looms on the horizon.
The obvious is that we are slipping into a slide zone, stumbling in the darkness, and becoming what we always decried as being "unAmerican" (cold, heartless, warmongers).
