Potempkin Washington

As I was awatching of the reinauguration of the chief executive yesterday, all I could think of, aside from absolutely horrible singing, was how could we waste so much money on a meaningless show.

That’s all it was. A Potempkin facade. The actual oath taking occurred in residence earlier. And great cash was expended on exhibiting the social engineering aristocracy, the hated but perhaps loyal opposition, all suitably muzzled, and those who worship at the font of racism. A circus. But with bread only for the aristocracy.

How much better could that money have done either going to NASA or feeding homeless? Or even incarcerating bankers? About all we got from that was another demonstration of how democracy is near death in this country.
