Ignorance is bliss

until you die from it, or you kill others because of it.

Every one of the past 59 days reveal a dissection of the American mindset that expands further with each new proclamation of 45 and his S.S. Two Stephens (Bannon and Miller) both present cruel and devious minds that seek to shock American liberalism into oblivion. The child king gleefully enriches himself and his children while signing executive orders drawn up by his white supremacist, nationalist S.S.

While the majority of us suffer from daily fits of rage coupled with a tightened stomach filled with distress, there exist a minority who swoon at his every action seeing only a protector in him. Even when they hear the words that will destroy what they have, they cannot comprehend any true meaning, but rather blurt out repeated right-wing marketing memes from Sean Hannity, Alex Jones, Rush Limbaugh, Breitbart News, and Infowars. Just take a look at the hyperlinked infowars site. I could only stomach summoning one for your displeasure. Look at the headlines and see what the people who are cloaked in their incomprehensible bliss take for real news while deluding themselves that mainstream journalism and science is fake.

This type of disdain for reality will not sustain itself, but by the time those who need the hand of government the most wake up from their hallucinations, everything will be gone. We take for granted the clean air that we breathe that just a few decades ago before the EPA started to regulate industrial expulsions caused a brown, toxic haze in many of our cities. Besides the poor residents of Flint, Michigan, most of us have access to unpolluted water that feeds the food we grow and quenches our thirst. This is because it has been at the forefront of regulatory action by the EPA since 1972 when the Clean Water Act became law.

“As amended in 1972, the law became commonly known as the Clean Water Act (CWA). The 1972 amendments: Established the basic structure for regulating pollutant discharges into the waters of the United States. Gave EPA the authority to implement pollution control programs such as setting wastewater standards for industry.”

This is America of the 1970’s.    1970's Toxic America

Are we going to sit and watch while the ignorant who blissfully reject this abject truth allow it come to pass? This is insanity multiplied by the power of 10. As long as the brand name associated with 45 continues in global promotion, he nor his family give a damn about the toxic mess they will leave behind. With the S.S. in the Whitehouse, we cannot wait for 2018 with the hope that democracy prevails.
