This Election Like Being In Vietnam - Will We Ever Put Humpty Dumpty Back Together Again.

There is one about spending a year in Vietnam it is that you go through a kaleidoscope of emotions. You can go through periods of great hope and great despair like someone who is bipolar. This election feels that way in so many ways. It seems like the country and lives are being ripped to shred by hatred sowed and nourished by the GOP. And the outcome is truly in doubt.

I see broken and fragmented country. I see one party trying to piece it back together and I see another powerful force in the GOP doing everything in its power trying to smash the pieces to pieces. And I wonder if we can ever put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

If I could wish the GOP out of existence like a character hit by a phaser disintegrating on Star Trek I would do it in a heartbeat.

2. the real problem lies with the uber-rich.

they are the force behind all the destructive talk and legislation.
tax them to redistribute our wealth and then pass laws that keep them from ripping us off again. that is the only way to deal with the infighting created by our fighting over crumbs.
