If We Could Turn Back Time

 Last night I watched CNN with a friend of mine and good old Wolf Blitzer was interviewing a Republican congressman about Hillary Clinton and all the emails, he tried at least three times to get this "expert" to say the word Russia.
They haven't come out and said the Russian government has done anything, because they can't prove anything. I find it really weird that this tired old Cold War Russian boogieman is being used, again. Trump is in with the Russians, and they are trying to take down Hillary. Really? But if you watch CNN or Fox, I am pretty sure you probably think what Wolf Blitzer says or Sean Hannity says is true.
Whatever mainstream media plays out, seems far removed from reality for everyday Americans. I haven't talked to anyone when I am out getting my coffee who thinks about Russia at all, at least not anyone from my generation and younger. This Russian McCarthy era communism crap is over.
What I do hear is there is a great mistrust of Hillary. I live in a very Republican small New Jersey town. These people are angry and bitter and they are voting Trump. I haven't talked to anyone who wants to vote for Hillary. That will probably be the people in Northern New Jersey, closer to the epicenter of the ruling class, in New York City.
Everyday there are more leaks, more emails, more FBI, more Russia, maybe with some Syria thrown in for good measure, another place Americans are weary of.
 Rest assured, if Hillary is elected we will get more war, defense contractors will get wealthier. There is no way out of this vicious cycle. We need an enemy whether by proxy or direct confrontation. Wall Street needs to keep the banks propped up, that keep the oil industry investments going. Big oil will continue to pepper spray, tase and shoot rubber bullets, using National Guards paid for with the American peoples tax dollars, until they can find a way to disburse Native Americans and steal Treaty land, again. So it goes...
You just can't make this stuff up. Could you get a more dysfunctional government, incapable of governing? Then you are offered a "choice" of two of the most unlikable candidates ever, since maybe Herbert Hoover or President Polk, You are expected to swallow this poison in the voting booth. You can elect Hillary and maintain the status quo if you are content with that or vote for Trump and anything can happen, however, he doesn't want a war.
Really? We are using DST from OVER 50 years ago!
How is that progress?
Just to reinforce America's dysfunction, this weekend we have to set our clocks back an hour, in order to stay in the last century. I have already blogged more than once about this quaint tradition that we keep to because studies show that the retail industry makes more money with daylight savings time. No one likes it, no one wants to lose an hours time, but Americans just go along with it and don't even know why. It's a lot like voting. You don't really like or want either of these candidates, but you go and vote any way, wasting time that could be put to better use.
No thanks.
Nothing against Cher, but that's a weird war like propaganda vid on a battleship. Look at her sitting on that giant cannon!
