"You know those gamblers in Vegas, who go there and blow their house on the black jack tables? And then they go around town buying hookers and blow left and right, partying hard until the dawn, acting as if they didn’t have a care in the world? At least until the night runs out?
That’s the United States.
The American people—collectively, irrespective of political parties—blew their country like a gambler blows his house on the black jack tables. Whether it was on unsustainable entitlement programs, or unwinnable (and illegal) (and pointless) wars, or foolishly short-sighted tax policies, or crony corruption, or demands for absurd services—it doesn’t matter, the result is the same:
The American people collectively blew their country. So now, everyone’s pretending that everything’s fine, while they wait for the shit to hit the fan."
