Since the inauguration I get up in the morning, make coffee and sit down. I look at the cat. The cat looks at me. Before I look at the news I ask her, “Do you think that jackass started world war three while we were sleeping?”
She meows and I start groaning. We dodged the world war bullet again last night but, Jesus– it’s like a new gut shot every morning these days. WTF? How did this happen?
Greed. Dog-eat-dog capitalism. That’s what happened. People are getting desperate and then are susceptible to the authoritarian’s con.
