UNEXPECTED

March 02, 2014

 

          Washington is abuzz with the unexpected news flowing from Crimea and Vladimer Putin's latest moves in the diplomatic chess game of governments. The legacy media cackles the same line as to the "unexpected" actions of various foreign government officials. It is ever thus in D.C. Blame cannot be allowed to fall upon The Great One or his appointees any more than guilt may be found for another Kennedy driving in a stupor on or off the public highways as the case may be. Forgive me but it has been my impression that my elected officials, their appointees and the permanent leeches who operate the goverment were far too knowledgeable to be surprised by a crude Russian such as Putin.

 

           Yet again, it appears that unexpected events overcame the genius of the Supreme Leader in the White House. But, like most who live in public housing, he appears to have little information outside of his own project as he is constantly surprised by unexpected events which trip up his plans for the lives of Americans, those citizens of a nation he dislikes so much that he promised to transform it as soon as he became its leader. Most of us know about the unexpected; we face it regularly: the car breaks down and we need another $400; one of the kids breaks his arm playing; my new boss doesn't like me and suggested I find other employment. Rather than commiseration, most of us learn we have to, somehow, deal with it. We should have planned for the unexpected as it is to be expected in life. Except in Washington where nothing is ever anybody's fault, where nobody is ever fired and where nobody expects the unexpected.Washington is abuzz with the unexpected news flowing from Crimea and Vladimer Putin's latest moves in the diplomatic chess game of governments.
