So Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) is in the news again this week with further allegations of “inappropriate” photos being shared online with another woman. When the first photo appeared and Weiner gave the news conference, I appreciated his cheeky stylye, even to admit that people make fun of his last name. I gave him the benefit of the doubt.

Now it appears that more inappropriate photos may have made their way through the blogosphere.

The moral malaise of America is steadily declining. Democrats and Republicans are continually getting caught with their pants down and the people continue to blindly vote for them. The people give them the power. The people that the founding fathers of America fought so hard to free themselves from this kind of immoral tyranny, are voting without conscience, without compass.

Life is short and this ultimately will be between Weiner and his wife. (Now that is funny when I repeat it to myself!) The voters seem to find him in a favourable light, as they did with Willy when Monica Lewinsky had stains spread across her dress. I find it appalling that people are so forgiving of the politicians who are in power that control every minutiae of our lives, but if the indiscretion took place with a Christian leader, the media and the people hound them until they step aside.

One word: Hypocrites.

When it it occur? really occur? Looking back, into the days of Arthur Miller, the Boys of Summer (remember them?)..Those were the last days of the dream. Then it became corrupt,greedy, poisonous. Maybe it was the whole sixties that were to blame, maybe it was Vietnam. Archie Bunker sings that we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again, but I disagree. If anyone, we need an Austin Powers type, to help get the North American mojo back.

The Democrats are killing America. The liberals have piece mealed it away for their own pocketbooks. The Republicans have stirred the fear pot. Taught us to be afraid of everything from the communist hiding under my bed, to the terrorist sleep cell that “might” be next door. Threats and innuendos fill the news everyday. We are looking for invisible enemies, keeping us in fear.

Europe has given in to the threat and her sovereignty expired circa 1978. Russia, circa 1989. Bastions of hope are now found not in the political leaders, nor the religious leaders (for the West) but in the mundane stars and starlets of Hollywood. We are shown Angelina Brolie adopting children. Show us the way Angelina! Lindsay Lohan, better living through continued stints in rehab! Brittney Spears, guide our children. Oprah, tell us how to be spiritual!

Hey kids, the blog is called Ramblings and other Savageries. Sometimes, I need to vent.

I am 45. Old. Tired and a little grumpy today.
