Goose Stepping America!

What can one say about Biden’s inaugural address?  Nothing I have seen analyzed it better than what was written 100 years ago about Warren Harding’s inaugural speech: It was “an army of pompous phrases marching across the landscape in search of an idea.”  Pat Buchanan graciously excused it as “the most confusing, contradictory and incoherent ever delivered from the steps of the Capitol, reflective of the mind of its author and the state of the Union he now leads.”


We’re off to a hell of a start, folks.  Buckle up.  The thought control, “everyone-will-be-unified” police are knocking at the door.  America ought to be a land of diversity–not the phony “diversity” of the racist, gender and inclusion crowd–but the diversity of honest and open debate where ideas are hashed out and differences aired.  When the debate ends, the differences remain because we are individuals with our unique perspectives on life.  

The “unity”-above-all mirage is a tool of political thugs.  Must we all march in lockstep to their drum, to their ”truth,” to their insistence that we follow their script?

No thanks.  My America isn’t a hell hole of conformity.
