Un Balo in Maschera

“An enlightened citizenry is indispensable for the proper functioning of a republic”. T.J.

On Friday I titled an article “DYI Government” expecting someone would “correct” me to tell me that “Do it Yourself” is “DIY” and I had the I and Y reversed. No one bothered or noticed so I could not respond with my clever lesson-driving explanation…

DYI stands for “Do Yourself In”. That is what Americans have done and are still doing, since given the opportunity to self govern over 240 years ago. We were given a “DIY” government and we turned it into “DYI” simply because we refused to be an informed electorate or hold our representatives accountable.

Here is proof positive that we are not worthy trustees of a Republic, as if the election of Barak Obama isn’t proof enough.
