Keeping Options Open or Spineless

Over the past few days I have observed behavior and more evidence, that even those politicians who are willing to express disagreement with the leaders of their parties, continue to vacillate and come up short of taking a stand which is in more accord with the views of their political opposition party than their own. This even though what they say would lead one to think that they actually agree with those of their opposition.

Isn't it finally time to call a spade a spade.? This is tribalism, pure and simple. Protect, promote, exonerate the members of the tribe; hang the public, and their naive views of fairness, justice, truth and honesty. Take care of your own, the rules of the Mafia, our elected Mafia.

My solace is to remember the admonition of Desiderata: "No doubt the universe is unfolding as it should". That helps me try to let it all go, and trust that my children and their's will somehow find a way as those of us in our time have.
