America, overwhelmed by the globalization titans, forges ahead. Her citizens are lost in the daily ritual of wash, rinse, repeat. The re-spinning of Warren G. Harding’s vapid proclamation of a “return to normalcy”, thwarts the political process. Harding frequently used the term “bloviate” which is about to fall upon us again as we witness the line up of idiot Repugnicans who wish to preside over this once decent nation. Since the Bush dynasty took hold, it has become a national tragedy, in my opinion, to watch and listen to these narrow-minded, uncharitable marionettes spew the hateful verbiage of the Plutocrats. So, here we go into another election-cycle media debacle.
Some suggested reading and viewing before the false fanfare begins: Bill Moyers’ March 25, 2015 article: “Is a New Political System Emerging in This Country?” is an excellent introduction followed by a viewing of the film by the great educator and statesman Robert Reich. “Inequality For All” is now available on Netflix and is a must-see for every American. Couple that with a second feature “Citizen Koch” and your family viewing will be complete. I watched both last night. They helped to connect my personal work space issues with those of the rest of the nation. Even dyed-in-the-wool, old-school Republicans (if you watch “Citizen Koch”) believe that their party has been usurped by those empowered by “Tea”. These are the Americans who typify the zombie-like quality of a mediocre mind that can no longer distinguish personal reality from repeated words advertised to them or from bloviation from Rush Limbaugh and his media ilk. [Disheartening side note: the end of the “Citizen Koch” film credits reveal that it was originally slated for PBS but was pulled before its run due to David Koch’s affiliation with PBS.]
A predicate mediocrity overwhelms the mind, heart, and soul.
