I’m wondering . . . have we become a nation of two dimensional people attempting to live in a three dimensional world?
I think so . . . when I see these committees . . . the press . . . local people I run into everyday, it seems to me that I am living in a cartoon that has been crafted by a really bad cartoonist.
I see one sided reporters, questioners, and character assassinaters everywhere . . . especially while watching this current congressional circus concerning the judge.
These (leaders?) are so obviously two dimensional that it scares me to believe we the people have given them reign over us . . . unless, of course we are just like them. Sad to think that, but I believe we are.
Maybe we have become what happens to people when they lay critical thinking aside to join the ranks of perceived truth . . . whether believer or disbeliever doesn’t seem to matter either.
Critical thinking is a gift, but it demands we see both sides of every argument, especially when it comes to innocent vs guilty. . . especially when demanding a man’s head on a plate for something he has been accused of doing thirty five years ago and has no track record of ever doing it again.
Today? There is no way to believe anything that’s being said from anybody in this matter and if truth be known it probably lies somewhere in the middle.
BUT as the Left continues the march along their self righteous path . . . and the Right hang in opposition . . . they also have gone three dimensional behind our backs and without a whimper (I have heard) just approved a multi trillion dollar tax break for the corporation.
Now whether that is a good thing or not, it should be up and open for discussion and a whole lot of critical thinking from both the left and the right side of the issue. . . . This has (seemingly) been bypassed behind the smoke cloud of accusation and denial taking place before us.
So when you loose your VA benefits . . . your Medicare/Medicaid. When our social security and the rest of our social help programs gets cut and your car gets crushed in a bridge collapse for lack of maintenance. When all that happens think back to this current side show and remember the fun you had watching the cartoon.
