                     Musing For Today

In 1933 then-President Franklin Delano Roosevelt issued a permanent "state of emergency" in which he also officially declared the citizens of the United States to be among the "enemy combatants".

Interesting:  Even THAT long ago the reality of the "ugly American" was manifesting itself to those in government and authority.

Cocksure, overconfident
Exaggerated feeling of entitlement
Short-fused, loose cannon, too easily offended

You don't suppose the rift between the average person and those in authority might have something to do with this ongoing decree in any way do you?
Most people aren't aware of it---but those-in-charge ARE and act on it, and often.
