Knightmare Scenario

The chosen knight in shining armor, whom characteristically rides bareback on his white horse, is saddling up for his nightmarish ride to save the damsel in distress.

Having assembled and conferred with the sagacious Round table elite, tactics are under review on just what to do. Failure not being an option, the ominous and daunting task of scaling the ivory tower has a history of being insurmountable.

As the fairy tale goes, the only way out of this mess may be for the broad to let her hair down, in 21st century terms of course.

As American history dictates, the people invariably and painstakingly resolve calamity generated by government policy, incompetence, and/or corruption.

Presently the nation is suffering from a catastrophic hat trick. Everything should be put upon the table, using the world as a working model.

Controversy and antiquated yardsticks aside, the new world disorder should include making the punishment not more damaging than the crime.

It has become painfully evident we can no longer continue our present course; tax dollars funding both sides of a war!

This opens the door to moral bankruptcy.
With Governors, Senators and Representatives being convicted of capital crimes;
The White House strutting about creating the perfect storm nightmare scenario; Worldwide...

With the American worker praying for another extension to unemployment benefits, (because jobs are out of the question- too lofty a goal)

The ethics of the people, a nation fleeced by the system of the pursuit of happiness, not to mention their life savings;
The ethics of the American people are far superior and admirable than their so called leaders.

So as Millions turn to Billions then inconceivably, turn into Trillions...we look to the Knight in shinning armor riding upon his white horse.

It's time we let our hair down to assist his climb up the ivory tower...

Fore there is no nightmare more frightening then when one is fully awake.

Moral banckruptcy being the primary issue. Double standards based on prominence in society; Wall street vs. Main, White collar vs. Blue, Connected vs unconnected.

This is the minutia we as Americans are forced to cut through to get to the crux.
Everything has to be put on the table when the table is all that's left.

Is the punishment worse than the crime? It depends on your station in society.

Point for Argument; Mr. Phelps, dedicated his entire life, won 8 golds, did more good for the nation in a matter of days than the previous administration did in years.
Sure he gets to keep his gold, but does he deserve to be publicly humiliated,
be stripped of his dignity, lose the Kellogs deal along with his cape and tights?

I'll take another Mr. Phelps before another Mr. Bush...gjf...9/08

      You are right in many ways John F Kennedy once said, " It is not what you're country can do for you, but what you can do for you're country."

      I would fight a fire with you. GBY.
