This post seemed perfect for these times, and nowhere is this story as needed as in the United States right now.
It is unbelievable to think that numerous prominent politicians (I dare not refer to them as leaders, as they are not what I would consider qualified to be actual leaders) not only question what general consensus among the scientific community considers facts, but defend their position by stating baldly that they are not themselves scientists.
Of course, we all know that money speaks, and nowhere does it speak as loudly as here in the United States. The roar of the sound of money everywhere is deafening in the United States, to the point that every decision that anyone makes seems motivated, on some level or another, by money.
When things reach an extreme like this, then what you get are a bunch of self-serving politicians who are willing to continue practices that seem clearly to be to the detriment of the health of the planet, all so that they can get their piece of the pie.
In the United States right now, greed is what continually triumphs, and trumps all other concerns. That is why we are in the mess that we are in. To justify this blind pursuit of money, people are willing to go to extremes, and to abandon fact and reason in order to argue in favor of their fantasies that things can just keep going as they are going, that we do not need to change or understand how the world works better than we presently do, even though there is now a mountain of evidence to suggest that many of these practices to make money are, in fact, destroying life on this planet.
Eventually, that is bound to catch up with us. It is not a question of if, but rather a question of when.
It is a gloomy topic, and it is all too easy to fall into a state of despair when one considers just how rough the world seems at this point. A perfect illustration of this are the "highlights" from last evenings Republican debate, when Donald Trump bragged about the size of his penis, and when there was a very bizarre exchange between Trump and Ted Cruz that was dismissed by that other imbecile sharing the stage, Marco Rubio.
Despite all of the incredible, daunting evidence in front of guys like that, they cannot help but trip over themselves in pursuit of positions of power and prominence, and usually in order to fatten their wallets and obtain the highest political office. Even scarier are the rabid supporters of each. Trump has numerous white supremacists who suddenly feel emboldened, while the religious extremists seem to really like Cruz. As for the Marcobot, well....let's see how long this establishment candidate stays in the race.
Everyone knows that these guys, as well as Hillary Clinton, represent mediocrity. Long ago seems the time when there was dignity among those who sought to be political leaders. Now, we get an entertainer like Trump leading the pack, and mental midgets like Cruz and Rubio. Or, we get the same old same old in Hillary, ensuring that politics as usual will be played at the expense of the American people.
What a ridiculous state of affairs, and that is why you can believe an article like the one that I posted the link to below:
