What is window dressing? It is a “pleasant distraction” from the window.
Most of what passes for information in the mass media is window dressing. That is because how we feel about what we know is actually more important than what we know.
Think about it logically. We see a prostitute in a window. Do we see someone so desperate that they spend their days selling their body for the pleasure of strangers? Of course, we do, but we also perceive the window dressing. We imagine what the window dressing suggests. Then, if we are unwise, we let our lusts and desires override what little wisdom we might have. Driven by our feelings, we do something we know we will regret. This is why prostitution is illegal. There is no excuse.
We are in the midst of a great national struggle. To win our hearts, various factions contend in the mass media to manipulate our feelings. Unfortunately, too few of us do a good job of separating the bare facts from from the window dressing. As a result we now have two types of justice, one type for the “deplorables” and another type for the Establishment.
Think not? Have you seriously considered the significance of that special prosecutor going after President Trump? It has been two years. Anybody with any sense knows that that investigation never had anything to do with Trump colluding with the Russians. That was window dressing.
Liberal Democrats have just used the special prosecutor, Obama appointed judges, and deep state bureaucrats to hound Trump and his appointees. The goal is and always was to RESIST, not justice.
So far, the only punishment Democrats have suffered for such abuses of power is that about half a dozen or more officials in the DOJ and the FBI have been fired. No one has been punished for forging evidence. No one has been punished for using national intelligence agencies to get their political opponents. No one has been firing for litigating “defendants” until the are bankrupt and desperate for a plea deal.
It is sad, but too many Americans have let themselves be taken in by window dressing. So instead of letting Trump fire an obviously rogue special prosecutor, Congress has threatened him with impeachment if he fires the special prosecutor. Supposedly, Robert Mueller must finish his sacred investigation. Window dressing! It is not obvious the Establishment wants to drive Trump from office? It is not obvious having sex with a prostitute is unwise?
Do you believe in playing by the rules? What happens when we play with someone who believes in cheating? What happens if we play with someone who only pretends to follow the rules, that is, someone who dresses a broken and dirty window? How much fun is playing a game with that cheater going to be?
Rules matter. Integrity matters. We have to hold everyone, even Liberal Democrats, accountable.
