PostJuly 4th Pageantry: Bread and Circus (John Heelan, UK, 07/04/19 5:59 am)
Nero would have been proud to witness The Donald's attempt at the latter-day "Bread and Circuses" planned for July 4th. Where is Juvenal's satire when you need him to puncture the balloon that is Trump's ego?
JE comments: The tanks have rolled into DC. Our beloved colleague on the Isle of Wight, John Heelan, usually receives the honor of the first WAIS post of July 4th. With The Donald now in charge in America, the Mother Country is finally vindicated: we colonists are incapable of self-rule.
