The Ninny-i-zation of everything.

We have become a nation of ninnies.

Half our politicians are science deniers.
Not believing in Darwin.
Or the evidence of global warming.

We blurt with diarrhetic regularity.
People go on a hiking vacation to Yellowstone
then tweet to tell you where they are.

We are fighting wars in three nations,
four if you count Mexico.
Yet we hear no news.

We are about to go bankrupt
in the face of political gamesmanship.

Our economy isn't growing and no one will say it structurally can't
because the top 1% has more wealth than the bottom 90%. An economy
can't be vibrant without a middle class.

I could give a rat's ass about Amy Winehouse.

Or Kim Kardashian.

Or Snookie.

We have become a stupocracy.
A rule of dumbness.

I'm checking out now for two weeks in the Caribbean.

I need it.
