The following charades are currently on display:

Congress taking 60 days to evaluate the Iran nuclear deal.  Whether they admit it or not, they’ve already made up their minds.

The investigation of Hillary Clinton’s State Department emails.  It’s a political witch-hunt.

FIFA undertaking reforms to eliminate corruption.  It may happen sometime, but not as long as Blatter is in charge.

Moves to reduce or eliminate police outrages against black people.  Racial prejudice is permanently ingrained in our culture.

An honest and relevant debate about issues in the run-up to the 2016 election.  It’s more a case of who can best pander to the rich people who pay the political bills.

Sane, modest proposals to reduce gun violence in this country.  Ain’t gonna happen, buddy boy.  So continue to go to school, work, the mall, the movie theater, or out for a walk at your own peril.

More US support to train Iraqis to fight against Iraqis.  Been there, done that.  It won’t work until Iraq is committed to its own salvation.
