Chicken Little For President

Is the sky falling? In this case, one would have to agree with chicken little. Say no more. One big dark cloud, made up of a host of pollutants, is moving towards modernity and threatening a Mad Max scenario where humankind is thrust back into the Middle Ages. The anti-Vax movement supported by Proud Boy goons recalling the Beer Hall Putsch of nascent Nazism are the prime example of a return to the desolate landscape famously memorialized in the famous chess game between Death and the Knight in Bergman's Seventh Seal. Inflation is running rampant along with Omicron. Biden’s approval ratings are falling, as Joe Manchin has trashed the l.7 Trillion social safety net bill. Roe v. Wade is in danger of being repealed by a politicized Supreme Court which has begun to show its true colors. The Republicans are likely to prevail in the midterm elections. In the unlikely event they don’t, the results run the possibility of being thrown out by Republican controlled legislatures. If David Perdue wins, Georgia is in trouble since Brian Kemp and Brad Raffensburger will no longer be able to hold the line against the forces eager to selectively delegitimize the electoral process. What else can possibly go wrong?
