As most in the Government, and members of the National Media are focusing their attentions on the many different crises that seem to come at us everyday from every possible direction and quarter of our National existence, and  countless Global concerns, it is easy for us to find ourselves on the edge of being overwhelmed, or teetering on near total frustration and submission. 

 
Take your pick!  Whether it be Revolution in Libya, Bahrain or any number of other Middle Eastern ( Muslim ) Nations, continuous troubling scenarios coming from Iran or North Korea, the ongoing strife between Israel and Palestine ( which is ironically supported by damn near every other Muslim or Arab Nation ), the world seems to be on fire.
 
With the PC fought wars in Afghanistan and Iraq still taking American Lives and fortune, The economic trampoline that is Europe, African violence and Pirating, and the new addition of the tragedy in Japan, It would be nice if we could at least look to our own borders and Nation, as the one place of stability and the blessed comfort that comes from confidence.
 
Unfortunately, this is not the case!  Here in America, We find ourselves awash in turmoil. Starting at our borders, ( that constant source of danger and division amongst the population ), and crossing every State line,  there is the a growing cloud of confusion and collective concern, as it relates to almost every facet of what We have all come to know as “Life in America”.
 
Each and almost Every State is riding the horse of insolvency, all the way to certain bankruptcy. When Governors or Legislators try to FINALLY do the right thing by their State’s budgets, their simple, honest and basic austerity measures are met with full frontal assault from the Unions, who have overly benefited for years from the deals made with the Government entities that they, through their vast donations and support, have helped keep in place.
 
 The FED is still printing money and pumping it into our economy, shrinking further the value of our Dollar with each day of their never ending Quantitative Easing Operations.  All the while, actively Monetizing our debt, which is basically going further into debt by borrowing from ourselves, to buy our own debt.      ( ????? )
 
Housing Markets are still in a state of foreclosure madness, and those at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, who were key in fermenting this situation, continue to borrow more money from the FED. ( all the while under Administration protection, avoiding investigation by the FEC )
 
Unemployment is still near 10%, and before anyone stands up and screams at their ceiling, telling me that it is only 9.6%, and that I am merely bloating figures to scare people.  Let’s be honest here for a moment. ” REAL ” unemployment is in the area of 15-17%  Nationally, and those weekly and monthly numbers that we are getting, are so easily and readily manipulated, as to show the lowest possible percentage, and not do anything to dissuade the Markets on Wall Street. ( The one and only ” ALMOST ” shining example of Economic Stabilization, from this Recession that is claimed to be OVER and hardly ever talked of anymore. )
 
Anyone who purchases ANYTHING is already feeling the hard pinch of INFLATION, even as the metrics that are used to calibrate the National Inflation rates, are themselves constantly altered to discount such things as FOOD and ENERGY in their calculations, thereby allowing the “RATE of INFLATION ” to APPEAR LOW or stagnate. Too bad for them, We who spend the money, and see how much LESS we are getting for it, are wise to their mathematical lies. 
 
In Washington, We are privy to a ” Theatre of the Absurd “, as Congress and the Administration battle over funding the Government for the remaining part of last year’s ” Budgetless ”  Democratic Congress, fighting each other over what are truly no more than mere pitence of proposed CUTS,  from a projected 1.5 Trillion Dollar annual Deficit for this current year. ( It is as if Last November Never Happened to these People- Once Again! )
 
Bi-Weekly Continuing Resolutions, with 4-6 Billion Dollar in cuts are being fought over, as Congress still cannot come to terms on this EXISTING YEAR’S BUDGET. A threatened closure of Government looming at each Fort-Night’s conclusion. All of this,  in the Face of a nearing deadline to perhaps increase the National Debt, AGAIN!,  allowing them to continue their Spendfest, at the cost of ourselves, and the futures of our children and grandchildren.
 
These National and Global Issues, added to the MANY others that column length prevents me from listing here, ( I can’t even touch on next years budget or his lack of a common sense Energy Plan ), stare each and everyone of us in the face and pocketbook everyday. Each day growing more precarious. Each minute stretching us closer to the point of no return in possible reconciliation.
 
We are all right now, as a Nation, at this moment, at a network of major crossroads. Critical decisions needing to be made, that will determine Our Future, Our Nations Future, and indeed the broader Future in general,  as it relates to how Nation’s will exist and co-exist around the Globe. A pivotal point that Cries, Begs, Screams and Prays for some small example of Leadership to help guide us towards the brighter future that we want, deserve, and are willing to earn.
 
It is at this point that I am forced by such daunting National challenges to ask myself, where is OUR LEADER? …and then I remember, “Oh Yeah!  He just finished playing Golf, Substitute Coaching a “Daughterless” Basketball Team, Choosing his bracket picks for the Final Four of College Hoops, and is now taking his Family on a Vacation/Executive trip to Rio, Chile, and some other Nation who as of  now, I couldn’t give a Rat’s Ass about, under the guise of improving North and South American Relations. All this from a man who continuously claims to be focused near laserlike on the issues that are driving this Great Nation to Ultimate and Impending Collapse!  ……BITCH PLEASE!
