The Way Things Are!

Sometimes you don’t have to look too far to find a summary of the way things are these days.  So it was this morning when I read the World-Wide column in the Wall Street Journal. 

The lead item said that our “European allies were bracing for the U.S. to withdraw from the Iran nuclear accord.”  A wrong-headed move that further distances us from our friends.

Then – “Iran’s president said that his country would fiercely resist efforts to contain its regional influence.”  Our behavior strengthens those who oppose us.

“Hezbollah and its allies won a majority of seats in Lebanon’s parliamentary election.”  On the ground evidence for my previous point.

“New York’s attorney general resigned after four women alleged he physically abused them.”  #MeToo takes no prisoners.  A good thing.

“The administration plans to step up prosecution of parents who cross into the U.S. illegally with their children, separating more families.”  Another example of government-sponsored cruelty.  For these guys compassion is a weakness.

“The White House proposes to cut federal spending by $15 billion, half of which would come from a children’s health insurance program.”  More evidence of government-sponsored cruelty.

Giuliani says Trump may not testify if Mueller asks him to.  They deserve each other, Trump and Giuliani that is.

“The NRA names Oliver North as its next president.”  They deserve each other too, North and the NRA that is.

And that’s the way things are!
