It seems to be the word of the hour in America. We have a president who's so prideful that he can't accept that the majority of the country completely disagrees with the way he's doing his job. His administration tells us we just have to be patient and stay the course, because they know what they're doing. This is essentially a way to say "fuck you" to each and every American citizen without having to actually go up to them and do it. We have a vice president who claims he's not part of the executive branch, and has about as much contempt for the law as any gangster rapper. We have a legistlature that keeps picking the wrong battles and giving up on the important ones, also ignoring the fact that they're the least popular in decades. I know it's pretty much business as usual for the US government, but this time, on this scale, it's so grossly irresponsible and damaging that with each passing day I find myself just wanting to bang my head against a wall rather than read the news.
Something has to give. Something has to explode. There's no way things can go on forever like this. What's going to be the powderkeg...what's going to be the straw that breaks the camel's back? What's going to finally stop everyone from just pretending that everything is okay...that everything is normal? I'm actually not sure I want to know, because at this point, with things so far gone, it's not going to be pretty.
