Cheeseburgs in New Harmony, Indiana


Cheeseburgs and Sanctuary in New Harmony, Indiana


We are down the rabbit hole here in America, with the government shutdown, caprice by tantrum in foreign policy and the ever stronger whiff of fascism in our national domestic affairs. 

The founders could not in their wildest nightmares have ever anticipated the rise of a  …………………

…………………………………………….   the rise of a Trump.

The founders based our whole system on the theory of some minimum level of virtue among our citizens. Trump has shot the Hell out of that theory.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see him name Jim Tomes Chief of Staff next or suggest arming public school teachers with guns. Oh wait! Trump has already tried to arm school teachers with guns.

If one is to maintain a mental balance and not sink into despair in these times, one must look for some sort of silver lining to our national storm cloud.

The only comfort I see is, that many an other previous civilization has gone down the crapper before us, and despite their falls, mankind has always continued crawling back toward the light. Governments and religions decay and die, but humanity keeps on keeping on. And, the long term result is always progress.

Or, in the immortal words of that great Hoosier Kurt Vonnegut, “so it goes.” 

My best advice is to hunker down in some relatively safe and out of the way little bastion of sanity, such as New Harmony, Indiana or maybe Santa Fe, New Mexico and just wait things out. 

If you choose refuge in New  Harmony, Indiana, look me up and we can go to the Yellow Tavern for Cheeseburgers and then around the river walk on my golf cart.
