The euphemisms used in this small article to compare America to an airline flight gone wrong, quite accurately, describes the political situation of the United States, as well as the somber mood of the people who are along for the ride.
“America is akin to an airliner whose passengers were once enjoying a peaceful nap, leaving the flight responsibilities to the ‘professionals‘. In mid-flight, some of the passengers woke up and took notice that the plane was flying in a circular motion to the left, slowly descending. When these passengers questioned the crew about the airliner’s strange behavior, they were left uneasy with the crew’s explanations, so they began waking up other passengers and alerting them. Some went back to sleep, trusting that the crew had everything under control while others continued awakening people. Finally, a few visibly shaken crew members begin to inform the passengers that their concerns were brought to the pilot who, despite the increasing left bank and descent rate of the airliner, insists that the navigation systems are functioning perfectly. Passengers are then informed that the pilot, as well as some of the crew members, have locked and secured the cockpit because they are positive the navigation systems are working and feel threatened by the ‘crazies‘ among the passengers and crew who are only pointing out the obvious.” – Slammin’
America can not afford to continue its left-leaning downward descent. Eventually, it will either crash into the ground or land in a foreign destination. The question remains, “can the ‘crazies‘ among the passengers and crew remain calm enough to figure out how to break into the cockpit, take-over America, and steer her right and upward before she hits the ground?”
