Reading Gary North this morning makes me wonder who are going to be cast as the McCarthy, the Nixon, the Hiss and the Chambers - or the Woodward, the Erlichman, the John Dean of the spectacle of imploding presidency. Can we avoid this path altogether and just hold everybody accountable for everything that they do, under the same rules as everyone plays by. With howdt the nagging nanny state.
Remember the game of LIFE with the spinners and the plastic pegs for adding kids into your six hole car. (good cereal too) With Art Linkletter's picture on the million dollar bill. If the game were reinvented to today's life, the farm (China?) would be a lot more populated than Millionaire Acres (Amerikan Dream?) Looking from the rest of the whirled perspective, i think we had best take stock of our values now and not let the entertainment of the political circus distract us from doing the things we know we have to do. If the new game rules were readily understood, people would not need to be represented in court, the would appear sui juris, since they really are themselves.
Accountability in a poker game is entirely in the hands of the dealer. If you know the dealer is crooked, why would you choose to sit at that table. If thinking people withdraw their support for the whole mess and be accountable unto themselves, we'll make it through the crises and end up mating donkeys on the other side of fiscal political meltdown insanity.
