Our National Nightmare

I hate talking about this.

I feel like a whiner.

I must be naive because I keep thinking that I am going to wake up and find out that our national nightmare is just that, a real nightmare that one experiences while sleeping.

Whether we like it or not, whether it is legal or not, we have almost had a year from hell with a government that is not meeting our needs, never has, and from my standpoint, never will.

How is it that we have a situation and a leader that are totally unlike anything we have ever seen in my lifetime and that continue to flounder and fester?

How is it that because of their being at the helm we are continuing to see outbursts of racism and violence unlike anything we have ever seen?

I always thought that progress was something that continued. Perhaps it might be slower than we would like, but at least we would experience an evolution. Now it seems that instead we have a decided regression, a definitive movement toward removing the gains we have made and across the board law removal of everything that seemed good or at least held some promise.

Day in and day out we hear of new crises and some governmental officer being replaced. Scandals appear out of nowhere and despite it all, nothing seems to change. We see childish tweeting and inappropriate behavior on the part of our leaders in both the national and international arena. We hear of Russian involvement in our election process.

To think that I thought that the Bush days were bad and embarrassing. I would welcome Bush back in a nanosecond to retake the helm. At least he had some dignity and presidential behavior.

It is going to be a long four years. I have to admit that I never thought that this régime would last but now, I seriously wonder.
