Mass denial, the American people are asleep at the wheel.

I have trouble deciding whether we are just allowing ourselves to get distracted because we have real problems (mass denial), or if Trump is so masterful that he is  distracting us while Rome burns. Most likely he is a buffoon and we are chasing the latest spectacle.


Defense One: Air Force Putting B-52s Back on 24-hour Alert

So why isn’t this a huge story?

Basically B52’s are being out on 24 hour alert for the first time since 1991. This is huge yet I cannot find it on google trending news. The American people are asleep at the wheel.

If you buy that Trump is a master distractor then it is proven by the politics subreddit. Here are a selection of articles from the the subreddits front page:

Ex-Governor of Puerto Rico tweets photo of surgeons operating by cellphone light after Trump dubs aide efforts a 10

‘It made me cry’: Gold Star widow Myeshia Johnson breaks silence over Trump’s condolence call

After Gold Star widow breaks silence, Trump immediately calls her a liar on Twitter

John Kelly Is ‘Donald Trump’s Puppet And Owes Me An Apology,’ Rep. Frederica Wilson Says

Of course there are legitimate stories there but most of it is culture wars and following the spectacle. The American people don’t think, don’t care or are in denial that we may be headed to war and a possible economic crash. If not a crash and at least a stock market correction.

Look, I don’t know what the future holds. Hopefully I am wrong in my pessimism. If I am not wrong then what upsets me the most is that we are not going to see it coming. We are going to blame the mainstream media and the politicians for our predicament as we ignored all the warning signs and spiral down into more collective dysfunction.
