Pardon the reference to mans best friend, but the world is going to the dogs, isn't it?
Actually the dogs of which I speak are the human variety, nasty, stinky, angry dogs with attitudes. Dogs that would kill their own kin just to make a buck, or get ahead.
You know, the corporate elite and twisted politicos, whose main goal is to enrichen themselves
to the point of being filthy stinking rich. Yachts, Ferraris, palatial estates, servants, etc.,etc.
Shrouded in the veil of "success" it implies that those less fortunate, are not a "success", thereby branding the lessors as inferior. Not necessarily physically or spiritually, but monetarily. It is another form of discrimination, nothing else.
Watching the exodus of the masses from the Squaw Valley parking lot years back (80's), showed me the self importance some people had over others. I watched as all the SUV's converged on one of two entrances, pushing and shoving of automobiles commenced. No one looked to the side, only forward in and attempt to ignore others trying to merge in. If they did not see them they did not exist. Pushing closer to the car in front to not allow merging to the point of shoving other cars along was an exercise in selfishness I not seen on such a grand scale prior to this. Dogs against dogs.
It is the same way in DC with politicos shoving stubbornly ahead into the supposed end but in reality causing the end to become further and further away. Bush is shoving others along forging his way through the clogged masses, ignoring all sides to further his agenda.
Is this the way Americans should behave? Should not reason and prudence prevail?
They are humans, behaving badly, dogs eating dogs to get ahead.
Time to be human.
