As a country, we are (borderline) bipolar!
And like a pendulum, we swing back and forth getting nowhere and driving the rest of the world crazy.
Can’t we actually move forward without the perennial one step forward, one step back nauseating dance we keep doing.
Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran are moving forward and they are not waiting for us to figure out what we actually want and get our national act together to move decisively and definitively forward. 😉
