I have no spur
To prick the sides of my intent, but only
Vaulting ambition, which o’erleaps itself,
And fall on th’other . . .
– Macbeth Act 1, scene 7.25-28
GOP-led House Authorizes Lawsuit Against Obama
Oh but the spittle and froth coming from the mouths of so many Republicans is to be feared by so many lost in fog of their own making. Can we mere humans grasp the lawlessness of our president? No. It is only seen by those who have seen the shimmering mirage of greatness created by their own masters.
Living in the bounded area called D.C. region, which tends to be a line scribbled on maps delineating about four million people. But, it fails to circle a large white building with a big dome over it. A building housing less than one thousand of the most powerful people on earth.
It is within that building that some of the nuttiest and craziest talk is emoted. Shakespeare would have dozens of concepts to turn into plays, most likely about the folly of fools. The bravado of the idiots must sound wonderful to their own ears. But, this makes Macbeth’s acts seem reasonable.
Impeach the most lawless president ever? That is outright crazy talk. Sue the guy. That will teach him a lesson. And, it is a warm-up act for the big, full stage performance of impeachment. Impeachment will show the black guy in the White House who is really running the country.
As fed up with war as the American public is, they have no appetite for the constant talk of the fools for impeachment. Can the Republicans understand that most, probably the 70% (at least) of the populous who are not Republican by signature, do not see what they see. The citizens do not hear what they hear. The voters do not feel what they feel.
Given that Republican gerrymandering has created safe districts for the fools, we have to live with them saying and doing things that if not for their protected seats would have them voted out or just plain ignored. Grabbing the microphone to spew talk intended to have the American public joining them on their march to a new world order — it is that very talk that tells the people to do the opposite.
Americans are not in favor of impeaching a president for any reason, let alone reasons that are created by and make sense only to a handful of elected representatives, senators and listeners of certain television channels or radio stations. Why do these creatures continually fall upon their swords while talking about standing up to a president? They must see some reward, but I believe it is only personal and limited; nothing any other American can understand or feel.
Macbeth is trying to create some reason to do the foul deed when no reason exists. Just like the jesters of the Republican party.
