If Hell Had a Budget: The GOP Breaks the Ten Commandments

Richard Eskow

A heat wave gripped Washington D.C. last week, its bright sun delineating each building’s sharp corners with Edward Hopper-like clarity. Commuters waited listlessly for trains and buses, fixed in their moments of misery like flies in amber.

If the city seemed like Hell, the resemblance was only heightened by the shadowy figures passing by in black chauffeured vehicles, their faces hidden by smoked glass as they glided through the city in air-conditioned comfort.

I am afraid there are too many Americans these days who will stick with the republican non-values. The Christo-fascists seem to love greed, lying, and brutality.

A strong essay and commentary, Richard! Very good analysis!
