My last post was entitled, “Trashing Government” where I pointed out that YOU are the government because we are a nation of free people and we have the vote. That means that at the end of the day, the government is us and we are responsible. Here is another point to ponder.

Our Government, with a capital G, has been doing a pretty damn fine job against overwhelming odds. Why, you will ask? Listen up then.

The so-called Sexual Revolution of the sixties was entirely a broadcast media creation. Children have been going through puberty ever since people inhabited this planet — nothing new there. With the advent of television however, this process was packaged and sold to that generation as something new and strange which could be overcome by free love and public protest. It made for great press. The NEW generation with all the unassailable righteousness of raging hormones, was going to fix the injustice of the corrupt “Older” generation. They did this by holding sit-ins where they invaded a public office, sat on their a…s, chanted bad names at people, and refused to leave when they were told too. This adolescent silliness was never outgrown and this generation was afflicted with arrested intellectual development which they took with them into the voting booths (witness the last presidential election). And this, my children, is where the current blizzard of Snowflakes came from.

That generation of voters emerged into young adulthood thoroughly convinced of their own intellectual superiority because they had discovered that the world was not perfect. They were as loud then as they are now about what they labeled “The Establishment”  ergo, any responsible adult who has been down life’s road ahead of them and will say plainly that there is no quick, easy fix for the world.

For the past 50 years our government has been having to deal with these self-righteous imbeciles and their useless fault-finding. Their political obtuseness has led directly to a large National debt, financially bankrupt cities and towns and an emotionally bankrupt generation of children — their own. Yet we are still here. America is still a valid idea and this is due entirely to the thinking people in our governments who did not give up, who did not let the ignorant screeching deafen them to the words of our constitution, and who have endured and will continue to outlast the vilification heaped upon “The Government” by the vicious and the indolent among us.

We have a President who is getting things done. Do they like him? They do not. Several of this silly generation wriggled their way into government agencies like the FBI and the DOJ and are currently making spectacles of themselves by ignoring every law they don’t like and then blaming the POTUS and administration for anything and everything. I am just reminding you that this is typical of them. It is time here to do what was done then. Pick these idiots up bodily and remove them from the offices whose proper functioning they are obstructing. Our government agencies have more good people than bad in them or we would not still be here. They have stuck it out under miserable conditions because they are part of us just as we are part of them. We are all America. We are all “The Government.” We can prevail. And we will.
