Can This Get Even Worse?

Reading the news over the past few weeks has been tortuous for any American who cherishes the freedoms our Founding Fathers intended us to have.  It seems like there's little room for other news between the IRS scandals, the Benghazi coverups and mysteries, the AP phone records, the Rosen phone taps, the Verizon phone records (including mine!), the Bin Laden leak disclosures, and the IRS conference boondoggles.

It all leaves me with a sense of unreality.  It felt like a familiar feeling, and I finally placed it this morning: it feels like the way I felt when I left home to join the Navy.  The familiar place that I loved was gone, and instead I was rudely thrust into a new world with little to commend it.  Furthermore,  I had no idea what was going to happen to me – could be good, could be bad.  I was profoundly aware of the limits of my own influence of the future course of events.  It was mostly scary, and it was definitely hard to maintain a positive attitude. 

I feel like that now.

I also am being trained to expect more and more of this horrifying news.  I'm losing any ability to be surprised at what the Obama administration might do...
