We’ve entered a phase where we no longer fix problems… We pretend they’re not there. If facts are really inconvenient, we play act.
We avoid mentioning we are 18 trillion in debt. We just play like we have an excess. We even fantasize on national TV about who we might give it to. Hey… let’s make college FREE!
We measure unemployment in a way massive numbers of unemployed simply dont count.
We redefine “deportations” to pretend we fixed the border.
We declare ourselves the winner of the war on terror and strut away… Leaving a bewildered and previously beaten foe in control of a battlefield he didnt earn. A battlefield paid for in the blood of U.S. patriots.
From the wisdom of a prior era:
How many legs does a dog have if you call a tail a leg?
Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg. ~ A. Lincoln
Still true. The real state of the union? Denial.
