We are not experiencing the world as we know it due to inept politicians. It is by intent that the world is falling off the cliff. Whether one considers our financial plight, moral decline, dumb graduates, apostasy in the church, a totally corrupt media and the rule of law being a thing of the past, it is all quite transparent in it's intentionality. The truth must be exposed to the people. We need a leader within the media to be screaming at the mountain top. Please cut to the chase Mr. Sowell

Random thoughts on the passing scene:

Many people may have voted for Barack Obama in 2008 because of his charisma. But anyone familiar with the disastrous track record of charismatic political leaders around the world in the 20th century should have run for the hills when they encountered a politician with charisma.

What is scarier than any particular political policy or issue is the widespread tendency to treat political issues as personal contests in talking points -- competitive skill in fencing with words -- rather than as serious attempts to find out what the facts are and what the options are.
