We are really in a different world. The only person I know truly qualfied to write about the Obama era would be Jonathan Swift. He could create a new Travel destination for Gulliver, an exotic place where little banker gnomes spend their days soberly wheeling big platinum rounds from one room to another.

Economic collapse starts when a coin accidentally rolls off the counting table and disappears down a drainage grate.

Yes, we ARE in a different world, hence my recent tagline. I started saying a few years ago in conversations that anyone who speaks what our grandparents or great grandparents or even our parents in the case of people of my age or older used to consider plain common sense, as obvious as the sunrise, are called nutcases or extremists. In this state we are losing our great senator Jim Demint who is resigning his seat. I have had people who are supposedly very conservative, including one retired lieutenant colonel, tell me that Mr. Demint is an “extremist”. My standard reply is NO, Mr. Demint is a traditional American of the sort we used to praise highly and hold up as role models. Those who CALL him an extremist are the real extremists.

On the other hand people who spout what used to be instantly recognized as idiocy are held up as role models and elected to the highest offices, up to and including the presidency.

My tagline at one time was IDIOCRACY IS A DOCUMENTARY.

The root of our problems is the fact that our educational system was taken over decades ago by people who teach absurdity as truth and their purpose has been to destroy the USA and they have done a nearly perfect job. We now have college graduates who in many cases would have been laughed out of a public school eighth grade classroom sixty years ago.
