The Democrats' cup runneth over... with corruption.
Every day, new revelations come out about the scummy Democrat operatives who will cheat, lie and slander to advance their crooked, mendacious candidate and their toxic, destructive agenda.
For some reason, the 1989 Stevie Winwood tune "Freedom Overspill" was going through my head the other day. I am not quite sure what the lyrics mean -- perhaps that freedom can be a frightening and confusing thing to people who have little direction, yet more options than they know how to handle. It can lead to confusion, anxiety and uncertainty. Often, drugs, alcohol and promiscuous sex are certain to follow.
The first verse of the song almost strikes me as a montage of Clintonísta behavior melded with the angst and sleepless nights of voters arguing with their family, friends -- and, indeed -- their own consciences -- about what the hell is going on, and where do we go from here:
Keep on talking all you want
Well you don't waste a minute of time
Who cares, who knows, what's true
Coffee and tears, the whole night through
Burning up on midnight oil
And it's come right back on you
(Maybe substitute booze for "coffee", but the tears are definitely a part of the equation -- whether they're literal or emotional.)
In recent weeks, I have pretty much stopped watching the chattering classes on TV. I am sleeping better, and have more peace of mind. Even Fox News has become contaminated with diarrhea-of-the-mouth and mindless sensationalism. The cacophony can drive one crazy after a while, and the one-sided piling on of the media simply underscores the once respected (or more respectable) Fourth Estate as thoroughly corrupt and worthless.
Hey, we've known for decades that the Clintons and Democrats were crooks and liars. That they have disdain and contempt for conservatives and traditional values. We've long been aware that the media leans left and is often unfair toward Republicans and conservatives -- not so much in how they write or cover stories, but rather, in which stories they elect to report, and which ones they totally ignore. But now, we have incontrovertible truth that the media has abandoned all pretense of objectivity, is waving the pom-poms for Hillary and firing the heavy artillery at Donald Trump, 24/7.
The media's disgraceful performance comes amidst a "drip, drip, drip" background of continued Wikileaks revelations about what utter scumbags so many Democrats are. Anti-Catholic and anti-Evangelical bigotry...belittling Hispanics...encouraging and seeking to provoke violence at Trump rallies...promotion of open borders....collusion by the media and Hillary (i.e., providing interview questions in advance)....collusion with the State Department and White House to cover up Hillary's email transgressions....two-faced behavior by the candidate, who admitted she has private and public positions on the issues... The extent of crime, corruption and collusion is breathtaking. The hypocrisy is sickening.
Additionally, the Department of Health and Human Services just announced that Obamacare rates will spike once again. Meanwhile, health care exchanges set up under the disastrous law -- a law I have dubbed "The Unaffordable Steaming Pile Act" -- are dropping like flies, which restricts consumers' choices even as prices rise. The hits just keep on coming.
At some point, one must wonder: Will any voters who once thought they would vote for Hillary have serious qualms, to the extent that they either won't vote for anyone, will vote for a third-party candidate or might even vote for Trump? That may be wishful thinking, but the cesspool engulfing us is truly becoming overwhelming.
It's tough to accept that half the American population has zero scruples and will vote for a train wreck. But sadly, too many of them will. Their state of mind is kind of like the randy drunk who knows he can go home with a certain bar wench. He really wants to get it on, and he's buzzed. But not so buzzed that his judgment has evaporated. Something inside him (call it one of his "better angels") is telling him: "Steve! DON'T DO IT!" But alas, the little head will do the thinking for the big head, and Steve will go and do his dirty deed. But he may want to kick himself in the morning.
Corruption overspill. It's causing extensive flooding, and the stench is overwhelming. Dead frogs, rodents and snakes are appearing on living room floors and in driveways. But, gee, untold homeowners are just too damned shit-faced with apathy and ignorance to give a shit!
