A is for Anarchy

Everybody knows it had to happen eventually. They fought it, they feared it they did everything they could to avoid it. But in the end, they were it.

Anarchy my friends. Remember it. But before you get all up in arms about the use of the dreaded “A” word. Perhaps we should take a closer look.

By definition Anarchy is: “lawlessness and absence of government“. And it has “chaos, confusion, disorder and disorganization” as synonyms(for you folks in Redding, that is “like” meanings). It also means “hostility, disregard, mob rule, rebellion, turmoil and unrest, which pretty much describes what is going on right now in Washington, D.C..

So by definition, I don’t think it is much of a stretch to argue that we already have Anarchy, just nobody is doing anything about it. Certainly not the Executive Branch, who is pretty much rewriting “settled” law-- on their way to Socialism, the Justice Department, who is enforcing offenses they pick with a Ouija Board back in Chicago, nor the Supreme Court who are so busy shredding the Constitution, they don’t have time to be bothered with the unraveling of America.

In fact, the irony of all this is the antonyms of “Anarchy”: lawfulness, order and rule are the very opposite of what we are witnessing now on Pennsylvania Avenue.

So the moment we see some politicians heads explode like watermelons at a Gallagher show, you might just have to smile and wonder if all that “lawfulness, order and rule“, might be just around the corner. Then authorities, with cooler heads, can round up all the usual suspects in an ongoing investigation, while representatives ponder their allegiances.

Politicians may not understand what they are doing to this country, but they do understand fear. At least we won’t have to wait and wonder if “Order” will ever happen at the ballot box. I think about 5 or 6 well placed rounds ought to do it.
