Part 1: America is Melting, Faster than Ice at the Poles

I am an American.

I was born in Virginia to generations of proud Virginians on my mother’s side and on my father’s side to his eager parents who immigrated from Scotland to Canada, where my father was born, and then to California where my father was raised. Both sides of my family love this country, it has been good to us and we have been good to it, to America. Now, my country, the one I inherited from my people, is consuming itself like a flesh eating disease and I am sickened and saddened and furious about the reality show that has become our government.

It is not funny. The pundits all seem to think it is because it is reality television at its most dispiriting. It is all about the ratings.

Who is winning, they smirk? Who is losing, they opine?

For God’s sake.

The losers are the American people, our way of life, our existence.

Who is winning? Every nation who hates us, every individual enemy we have around the globe. They are winning.

Don’t think so? Hide and watch.

The Tea Party believes, as does our Supreme Court, that corporations are people. I can tell you this, not one of these petty Tea Party obstructionists would last a day if they were employed by “anyone” else than the government, the government they are destroying.
