Morons of the Month - March 2016

This is starting to get repetitive.   How many of these monthly moronic tributes have been devoted to...well...us?

You heard it all again last Tuesday when a gaggle of primaries practically anointed Donald Trump as the Presidential candidate on the Republican side.   One more time, you got to listen as one American after another vowed to move to Canada. As a matter of fact, the Canadian Government's website allegedly crashed on Super Tuesday from all the Americans clicking in to see about moving to the North.

Um, so go already.   I mean, we hear this on both sides of the aisle.   How many times did we hear about Alec Baldwin leaving the country during the George W. Bush years?  How many times has one radio host or another vowed to leave the United States during the Obama years?  

Like any of this makes a difference.

Take it from me, a guy who hates both parties and a person whose views have never ever been represented in government, we are doing this to ourselves.

Let's face it.   The list of Presidential hopefuls in 2016 is depressing.   Donald Trump is a game show host.  Ted Cruz looks like Eddie Munster.  Marco Rubio reminds me of a kid you beat up on the playground.  Hillary Clinton is a felon. Bernie Sanders is clinically insane.

But yet, as the primaries roll out, there are folks out there casting ballots for these losers.   As I have written before, the number of young adults stumping for Bernie is immensely depressing and a total validation that our school systems are broken.  

If you want to look at the bright side of all of this, you can say that democracy is working because the people are letting their voices be heard.   But, still, look at what the choices are.   Our country is officially in a major decline from which it will never return. 

We are doing this to ourselves.   By continuing to embrace this ultra-polarized nation, we are condemning future generations to their most certain early deaths.  

Where are the sensible folks clamoring for a real and viable and reasonable alternative to all of the above?   I don't hear them. Do you?

I'm telling you.  The only thing missing from America these days is a band playing "Nearer My God To Thee."

Dinner last night:  Leftover roast chicken.
