OBLIVION THIS WAY COMES

“I don’t have a dog in this fight.” This is really a great phrase. It says it all. My Dad died at 56 of a heart attack, so I never thought I’d make it to even 65. And yet I sit here at age 72. By my math I figure I’m on borrowed time.
But as I consider you ‘youngsters’ out there I must ask, “How stupid can you be?” If you have doubted in the least that the swamp President Trump talked about actually exists, just look at what happened last night. Republicans and Democrats got together and agreed on a budget which is going to do nothing less than push us closer to the brink of oblivion.
Do any of you remember what happened in Greece? They were pushed over the brink screaming and squealing for the government handouts that sent them over that brink. Greece was fortunate; their economy was small enough to be saved by their European neighbors. When we go over the edge there will be only oblivion because we are too big to save.
Can it be that you all are too stupid to see that ‘brink’ toward which we are rushing? Are you saying, “Oh, he doesn’t know what he’s talking about? It’s not that big of a problem. We’ve got plenty of time.” I have no grandchildren and my time is limited. But if you have grandchildren or you are young with children you will be responsible for their doom if you do not take a stand against this continuing deficit spending. YOU! Not Chuck Schumer or Paul Ryan. YOU! They will only do what you allow them to do. They are the swamp. And you are their enablers.
The thought does cross my mind, “Why did I just waste 20 minutes composing this rant, this screed – I don’t have a dog in this fight?” How about you?
