The New Normal?

The average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline for the past 2 years in the U.S. (as of this writing)?  Over $3 per gallon.

The national unemployment rate for the U.S. since early 2009? Not lower than 7.8% and as high as 15%+ (depending on how the total is calculated.)

The Outstanding Public Debt as of January 6, 2013?-

$16,439,668,195, 953

(The U.S. National Debt has continued to increase at an average pace of $3.86 billion per day since September 28, 2007.)

Ever-intrusive privacy concerns.  Higher confiscatory taxation. Increased dependence by citizens the world over on government handouts. Paparazzi “journalism” and the ever-widening gap of style over substance in all things.  Crony capitalism masquerading as concern for the environment.  The continuing dominance of religion over Spirit.

And the band played on…

This is the new normal?

It makes this Zendian’s Heart weep.
