Blind Man's Bluff

Chances are you have never played this game.  It was the most popular one at church social functions, other than "pin the tail on the donkey".  They both required a blindfold.  Along with "The Mask", America is playing a dangerous game of the same.  To put it into perspective, we should call today's game, "Pin the Tale on the Donkey".  Our whole world is infected with a disease of "Blind Man's Bluff".   We truly do not know what is fact and what is fiction, since the fiction is abundantly available 24/7.   Appropriately, The Democratic Party's "Donkey" is symbolic.  They go around "braying" with arrogance.  They have finally conquered all that has ever been truly "good", and they are wallowing in the detritus remaining.  Politicians have become the Superb "Garbage Man" with litter and trash free for the asking.  It used to be that we could straighten things our at the Poll, but forget it today.  Technology Trumps! (sorry, couldn't help myself)  We used to be able to say, "If it quacks like a duck and walks like a duck, it must be a duck.  At the present time we all should simply "DUCK" or get hit slap in the face by feces. Since we are in polite company, I will call "it", "OOMGahWah"!

So, as we trudge blissfully along the dismal path of politics, don't step in the OOMGahWah!

You may put "GIG'em" on my blindfold, if you please.

And that's what I get from My Box of Chocolates right here in my corner studio under the shadow of Kyle Field.
