Last night I had the pleasure of going to the Music Hall in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and being entertained by the “Capitol Steps,” a satirical group of entertainers and political commentators.  They were funny, talented and iconoclastic.  I went with friends who do not always agree politically, but it was an enjoyable evening.  All spectrums of of the political world were lampooned, left, right, and middle.  Imitations of Hillary, Bernie, Obama, Schumer, McConnell, “W,” and the Donald were all presented.  After almost two hours of laughing, it dawned on me that this is not just comedy, but serious, especially when they did their skit on “The Supremes,” reflecting the upcoming debate in the Senate.  What is scary is that this is where we are as a nation, where the “truth does not set us free.”  We need to grow up as a people, especially those who supposedly represent us in government.  If all we want is to pass our agendas and make points against our opposition then we are in trouble.  Damn it America, grow up, from the President, Congress, down to the general public.  Because unless we do we will become the laughing stock of the world, if we haven’t done so already.  If we continue on our path the “art of the deal” will become “the art of the steal” as America’s reputation is demeaned and stolen, and rides off into insignificance, with everything that possible contemplation will bring.
