Could It Possibly Get Any Worse?
The stock market is in free fall.
The Islamic State is on the brink of taking Baghdad and Kobani.
The Ebola crisis is spreading and seems on the verge of becoming a pandemic while the CDC is being unmasked as incompetent.
The Iran talks are a charade and everyone expects that country to get the bomb.
Our vaunted college campuses are transfixed by so-called micro-agressions and a supposed rape epidemic while banning the likes of Ayaan Hirsi Ali and George Will (!) from speaking -- and they still cost nearly $70,000 a year.
Our putative ally Turkey -- you know, those guys who mass murdered the Armenians but never recanted and have a president who thinks democracy is just a pit stop on the way to totalitarianism, but are still "treasured" members of NATO -- are not helping the "coalition" but instead bombing the Kurds, virtually the only good guys in the neighborhood.
Donor nations -- including the ever popular Qatar -- are giving over 5 billion dollars to rebuild Gaza with no discernible penalties for Hamas and virtually no way of preventing the terror organization from rearming (they have already started) and reconstructing their tunnel system under Israel. Meanwhile, the UK, UN, Sweden and nearly everybody else are blaming the Jewish state for practically everything, with anti-Semitism more prevalent almost everywhere than since the 1930s.
Putin has already taken a good swathe of Ukraine, including Crimea, and is licking his chops for the rest of Eastern Europe. The Soviet Union is back and China is on the rise.
Europe is on the verge of recession. Even Germany appears to be stagnating.
The U.S. has its lowest labor participation rate since women went to work. The middle class is consistently losing ground.
Race relations in the U.S. seem to have gone backwards fifty years in the last six, African Americans overwhelmed with victimology and picking on cops before there is any evidence. Critics of the president are constantly accused of racism. Seventy percent of black children are born out of wedlock.
