When we had heroes in the real world there were also superheroes on television, movies, video games, toys, and more.
But alas leadership in our times has seriously fallen short.
Who is there to really look up to as a model for us to respect and follow?
It seems like everywhere these days we are confronted by:
– Failing leadership
– Poor decision-making
– Party politics
– Fraud, waste, and abuse
– Bullying and sexual harassment
– Bribery and kleptocracy
– Big time narcissism
There are few if any heroes these days!
It’s sad for us as well as for our children.
I hope we see Batman and Superman and other superheroes again: strong in the physical sense but primarily a symbol for strength of character/integrity and for the fight of good over evil in this world.
The void is painful for our times and is going to impact our near term future as well. 😉
The new executive orders and legislations reverse the old ones.
– Keystone Pipeline
– Travel Ban from potential Terrorist Countries
– Paris Climate Accord
– Membership in World Health Organization
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. 😉
A regular coffee just won’t do it, especially with what’s going on in Washington, D.C. after the most recent chaotic events of yesterday.
Thus, this prescription coffee is a great idea to wake the masses out of their disbelieving stupor of what’s going down in this insane town.
Of course, the supposed Russian way of dealing with their opponents is said to involve perhaps more of a poison approach to handle affairs (reference Navalny), which is way scary!
And with talk of invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the President from office or of impeachment (again) less than 2 weeks from the inauguration, I’ll definitely take me some prescription coffee by the barrel. 😉
This election demonstrated one thing…that we are the 99%!
The too often proverbial suckers under the heel of the power and money elite in society.
Fed phony and biased information to try and turn us against each other and manipulate us to believe and act in ways beneficial to those who want to retain, and endlessly grow, their wealth and status.
Like good soldiers, the underclasses are the pawns in the global games of Power Chess and Monopoly.
The 99% are completely expendable.
They are blind and will follow orders.
The 1% likes them dumb and works hard to try and keep them that way!
Anything, if the rich can get richer and the powerful can get more power.
The schnooks at the bottom looking up, with begging eyes, get the scraps thrown off the table and unto the floor where they fight for a morsel, while killing each other for it.
The elite use the media, Hollywood, polls, and radicalism, so that they can sit up high and mighty and watch the rest of us with a wide smirk of disdain on their fat, arrogant faces, as we drink it all in.
How long will the 99% be fooled and played?
Exploited and even thrown under the bus by the narcissist and greedy 1%.
