This is the World That We Live In

I was thinking today about how events and elections rule our lives. Most of us can’t do anything about the bad decisions that people in power make that affect our lives so profoundly. Bad decisions being made in Austin, in Madison, Wisconsin, and in Washington, DC.

Bad decisions because of an election that was bought and paid for through Citizens United, and driven by the wizards of Republican spin that made the last recession all about Obamacare.

How do you do that, I ask? And the answer comes back you do this by relying on the American people’s catastrophic lack of any memory at all. You take advantage of the fact that Americans are increasingly unable to process information.

Someone reminded me today that this has already been discussed.

The Killers.
