A Pox On Both Their Houses

I grow very weary of the political assassination that passes for political discussion these days. The yellow journalistic media mentality has not changed in over 100 years, nor has pork barrel politics at the expense of the people. Most politicians and the media are not America serving or America loving, they are self serving and self loving. A friend has said, with ample justification, that half of the politicians and all of the media hate America. I believe he is right.

Those kinds of people cannot be trusted to lead or inform this nation. They cannot even be trusted to discipline themselves to resist treason for the dollar or political gain. To them, truth is unimportant and ethics passé. They are neither patriots nor our best and brightest. They are our shame.

The best of America are selflessly tracking our enemies through the sights of a rifle, delivering food and medicine to needy people and repairing decades of decay in the infrastructure of another country trying to give them a taste of the freedoms we so unthinkingly take for granted. In one day, the US military does more good for humanity than the media and politicians have ever done, or will ever do until the next American Revolution. A pox on both their houses.
