One person I didn't miss while on vacation

In his game, politics trumps truth so with such a rotten noggin at the very top, it’s not surprising honesty has been moved to the back of the bus. And everybody knows what flows downhill.

Last week came another Baby Ruth rolling into the pool. Apparently government has cast a very wide net over our phone and Internet activities.

Back in the day when we could have faith in the institutional integrity of those analyzing this information, I’d have no problem with it. But now every agency is suspect.

Throughout my vacation, it was quite nice not seeing or hearing the president. I did catch some video of him in our hotel room, but it was dubbed into Italian. He looked like an actor in a bad Japanese movie. Where’s Godzilla when you need him?

I guess I should take a clue from the respite and wean myself away from all TV news programs. This nasty circus has three years left on its engagement. Then the cleanup can begin.

On the plus side, there’s a personal silver lining for us older folks. We’re pretty much bullet-proof because liberals can’t ruin a life already lived, and most of mine has passed.

In the minus column, today’s young folks don’t seem to have — or want — a clue. Have you seen random street interviews of average college students? Scary and sad.
