These are Heinlein’s Crazy Years — we just live in them:
Chuck Netzhammer said he ordered the image of the Confederate flag on a cake with the words, “Heritage Not Hate,” on Thursday at a Walmart in Slidell, Louisiana.

“I went back yesterday and managed to get an ISIS battleflag printed. ISIS happens to be somebody who we’re fighting against right now who are killing our men and boys overseas and are beheading Christians,” Netzhammer said.

It has set in.
And it isn’t mere decadence. American culture has descended into something like insanity.
I’ll have more on this in the next few days.
