Did we walk through the looking glass already? I forgot to pack.

POTR_self_reflection“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, or you wouldn’t have come here.”

and now to go  though the looking glass Freaks:

(Washington Times) President Obama continues to enjoy a better approval rating than Republican leaders in Congress, according to a new poll from the Pew Research Center for the People.

The survey found that Mr. Obama’s job performance climbed from 47 percent in March to 51 percent, and that just 22 percent approve of the job performance of GOP leaders in Congress.

There is a madness among us now.  Denialism is choosing to deny reality as a way to avoid an uncomfortable truth.  It was once a quirky trait of hippies and academic fantasy land pontificators.  Now it has spread into a nationalized virus by the willing carriers to cull the hapless masses.   The denied truth?  We are enslaving ourselves to staggering generational debit while surrendering our liberties in exchange for “feel good” political correctness and the laziness of perceived entitlement to that which we did not earn nor have a right to take from others.

“In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
