So, this Is Christmas

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

As someone once said so it is Christmas and what have we got? Well, for one thing this past year proved once again the United States has been and continues to be caught off guard. Another year where more gun related deaths have far exceeded auto accidents. We also have had another year where this country gets deeper in debt. A country that is bankrupt, but you’d never know it with all the media hype to buy this and buy that. Where personal debt from student loans, credit cards, auto financing and mortgages have all hit all-time highs. Our whole financial system is nothing more than a house of cards poised and ready to fall. So, this is Christmas and this is what we get.
What presents are under those Christmas trees of late are filled with platitudes trying to fill the voids of woe and despair. Yet, for the upper echelon where gluttony abounds there is no pity or empathy for the unfortunate multitudes around. Let them eat cake is the rationale as they pass by all those charity kettles. So this is Christmas and what have we got?
As for many a wish list for this new year never mind the ones form last year. Those New Year resolutions that always fail so why should this year be any different? So this is Christmas and what have we got? A campaign season that is far too long. It is filled with wind bags who toot their own horn. Rigged elections that favor so few. Campaign debates that have turned into a three ring circus. The Republican ring master Trump himself whose venomous rhetoric continues to alienate too many Americans. Yet, for many the bravado of his style has drawn in the media to catapult him into the national spotlight where the voice of reason, compassion, humility and humanity is always drowned out. So this is Christmas and this is what we got.
The multitudes of impoverished souls keep multiplying day after day. The once filled food banks are now empty and bare. More people are so desperate this time of year. Now with the flood of immigrants trying to get in the Republicans have turned the times back to 1942. The reason of fear has done nothing to lighten this time of year. The cries of desperation by so many of late calling for the promise that America once held fall on deaf ears by the existing powers that be. For they are unwilling to extend that helping hand when so many are in need. This has only increased the frustration that is swelling. So this is Christmas and this is what we got.
When too many of those candidates for the highest office in the land skirt around the issues of late they continue to display an arrogance of style. Where the insecurity of this nation is plainly seen, only one has shown the fortitude to stand up for what is right. With reason behind him if only more would listen. But, the voice of this reason is constantly silenced. Drowned out by the media and voices of fear. The changes advocated by reason, merit and weight have been continually assaulted in trying to keep the status quo. And so this is Christmas and this is what we get.
