The Washington Post says so.
I just went back in time and checked, and I’m pretty sure this is what I’ve been saying for the last four and a half years, give or take a day or so.
Don’t believe me?
December 13, 2012: Just when you thought you understood, someone explained it better…
October 8, 2013: It all comes down to this…
December 16, 2015: Ignoring the man behind the curtain…
January 16, 2016: The Big Social Security Lie…
It’s like all of a sudden people are finally catching up with what I’ve been saying since the 2012 election. I wonder why it took so long for them to buy in?
Perhaps it was because nobody could conceive that Trump might win.
Maybe it was because people couldn’t imagine the greatest nation in the world suffering from immolation.
Or it could be hubris.
Wait. What’s that?
Hubris (/ˈhjuːbrɪs/, also hybris, from ancient Greek ὕβρις) describes a personality quality of extreme or foolish pride or dangerous overconfidence. In its ancient Greek context, it typically describes behavior that defies the norms of behavior or challenges the gods, and which in turn brings about the downfall, or nemesis, of the perpetrator of hubris.
It’s when the winning candidate uses a term like “draining the swamp” and people fail to understand exactly what he means by the phrase.
What better way to “Drain the Swamp” than to simply let the clock run out.
No budget. No bills to pay. No people to pay.
Seriously. Do you really think all those people who clamor for smaller government have any idea what that will mean to the DelMarVa region?
What about all those towns that support what’s left of the military bases across the country?
How about those companies building military infrastructure?
Who’s gonna shore them up? The Koch brothers? Mercer?
You want to see what happens when you open holes in a damn that holds back the flood? Just wait until we go over the Fiscal Cliff.
Just remember: There aren’t enough Democrats to stop the process this time. They won’t be obstructing anything. They’ll holler but they won’t be able to fix the problem and the GOP are too damn busy trying to put out the coal seam fire that is the Trump Russia disaster.
We are 78 days and counting to the end of FY2017. There is no budget. There’s only a fanciful laundry list of wants thrown down from the mount by the illegitimate Russian shill who portrays himself as President.
Think I’m kidding?
