The emperor's new clothes

A lot has been said and even written, behind closed doors or at least far from the madding crowd ... "Where is the anger?" Why are not the people up in arms about everything?
But it really was a stroke of genius, whether deliberate or otherwise.
Everybody knows about Weimar, everybody knows about the Zimbabwe hundred trillion dollar bill. Everybody knows about the emperor. But nobody fliches, not even
the little boy.
Why not?
Of course, the little boy is far too busy trying to get away from Jerry Sandusky.
As for the rest of us, well, it just so happens that we are all clothed in the very same material as the emperor. Between veterans, federal employees, federal retirees, contractors, SNAP, section 8, social security, disability, etc etc etc, that's pretty much all of us, isn't it .....

Can't wait to see what happens next ....
