The Emperor has NO clothes

My regular readers know that when it comes to American politics, I am an interested outsider/observer. I read all sorts of things, and am always interested to see how Americans interpret the events unfolding within their country. My observer status does NOT mean I have no opinions, and sometimes I even find American commentators who share my own conclusions.

The following had me saying: "Yes! Right on!" Of course, that means I have to share it with you. Read on:

Exclusive: Welcome to the United States of Make-Believe

In case you have not noticed, our country is at a crossroads. No, not between glory and disaster – that fork was fatally chosen on the first Tuesday in November. No, not between capitalism and socialism – that fork was chosen that day as well. This choice is not between government for the people and government by the media. That mess was allowed to brew for months and ripen on, you guessed it, that same November day. In fact, the fork in the road is not even between proactive leadership and reactive victimization. That circus trip has been festering in the hands of liberal efforts for some time now. No, the fork in the road facing this nation today is between rational reality and absurd delusion.

The Signs are In the Air
Just as dark clouds tell us that rain approaches and a frost in the air tells us that snow is on the way, so too the signs are everywhere of the fate that awaits America as a result of the recent election results. Rosie O’Donnell, Roseanne Barr, Joy Behar, Whoopie Goldberg and Bill Maher actually believe that the drivel that comes out of their mouths nearly represents what most Americans believe. Furthermore, the media is allowing that drivel to spread as if it carried an ounce of relevance, accuracy and objectivity.
Political nightmares such as Cynthia McKinney, Barbara Boxer and Nancy Pelosi are being allowed to impose their will and views on our ears as if their opinion on garden hoses much less our nation’s future meant anything to anyone beyond their immediate family, handlers and groupies. Hollywood and entertainment elites are increasingly deluded into thinking that they are not only qualified to preach about breakfast cereal, but also how one should lead one’s life, run one’s home, manage one’s relationships or make a difference in this world. Panting imbeciles are running to the newsstands to absorb marital, parenting and even wardrobe advice from Obama and Michelle.
Like it or not, the great pretense has started. This fable begins with the entrance of a new King and his Queen and the dawn of a new day full of possibilities and opportunities to make America the most popular kid on the world block again. The story continues with that King’s promises to juggle conflicting interests, match contradictory plans and carve marble masterpieces out of fertilizer. The formula seems simple: America is bad, Obama is good, and Obama will make America good again.
Yes, the dark clouds are surrounding us, but liberals and their pet media will have us believe that the resulting darkness is merely caused by the approaching evening rather than the impending doom.
The Naked Emperor with a Twist...

Just as The Emperor has no clothes" is a cautionary tale - written in 1837 by Hans Christian Andersen, for children - this writer lays out America's cautionary tale for OUR times, and it is no children's story!......Go read the rest of this here.
