John Bolton who?
This guy, resigning from the White House in September of last year, was going to be a lightning rod of booming revelation, with respect to Trump’s wrongdoings.
Oh, I forgot, there was the book he was writing. He had to keep silent while getting ready for it to come out. His book is about to come out now but everyone seems to have forgotten poor John Bolton. The money was everything, however, and not the message that might have helped the country at that time. Now, with the advent of the virus and the civil rights resurgence, who cares? John got a big advance but how much will he have to pay back when his book about Russia and other junk lays there on a discount counter at Barnes and Noble with no purchasers?
These people! Armchair patriots.
The big general comes forth to indicate that it might have been a mistake to appear with Trump at the famous ‘this is somebody’s bible,’ moment in history a few weeks ago. He’s got his four stars and plenty of years behind him. So, he will move on into his Florida condo into retirement and wants to be a bit of standup kind of American when he gets there. That he demonstrated such bad judgment in going to the show, as a four-star general and chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, in the first place?
Well, that’s for later discussion on the shuffleboard court, ping pong table, or at the pool. Another ‘in the rear with the gear’ non-combat war leader. Another armchair patriot.
Where do these people come from, that have done literally nothing of benefit to get everything in return? That’s what this whole racial protest is really about. That’s what the nation’s response to the nation’s response to the virus is, and is going to be, all about. America must retreat from nepotism and favoritism, whether that is done through family, about race, or anything else.
Without a return to a meritocracy then there is and will remain, no merit. Without merit, there is simply the continued slogging through the mud of life while believing that it’s not mud at all.
I am sure you have some thoughts on this topic.
Without removing the corrupted, fossilized remains of many Congress and Senate members and replacing them with those that want to serve only to better the nation and the people ,I see no hope
I think someone else commented this, but i’ll reiterate it….Too many participation trophy holders are now in our gov’t and society….
Great observation, Art.
Yes that was well said!
Spot on again. These armchair patriots sell themselves to the highest bidder. It is disheartening to witness and yet nothing new. The entire Vietnam conflict was a clusterfuck of the first magnitude thanks to clowns like Miley, Mattis, Westmoreland et al. How many died because of their conceit and arrogance? Only God knows.

Well said JAMES very well SAID, but I fear it will fall on deaf ears !!!!!!
Wow LT, you really summed that one quite well. Our whole business model is basically who you know and not what have you done. Are we the voters and buyers guilty of it’s the other son and not mine?
Thanks for the thought.
Meritocracy – now there’s a name I haven’t heard in a long time. Smacks of liberty so it’s only used in quiet conversations in dark smoke filled pubs. We’re moving from meritocracy to socialism at a rapid pace and no one is calling it out. Churches are silent and retreat into their personal peace and prosperity. I’m jealous of the left’s persistence and single minded drive for their cause. Wish conservatives would get a bug up their ass and start pushing back. Every time one becomes successful, like Bolton, they are co-opted with an offer to join the establishment where taxpayers money is passed around to the connections you made in ivy league college. Trump is not my first choice for prez but I love his war on the establishment. Who will be his successor???
