The Corpse Flower

On Sunday in Washington D.C. a corpse flower bloomed. The bloom smells like rotting human flesh. It is no coincidence that this happened in the nation's capitol at this time because the politicians, starting in the White House and down to the lowliest congressman, smell like dead, rotting flesh. Honor and integrity, morals and character, truth and justice no longer exist in our capitol city. Instead pride, arrogance, greed, treachery, deceit, immorality and narcissism have taken over. It is like a stinking dead corpse. Indeed, all the things that used to make us a great nation are dead. What exists now is nothing but rotting flesh and dead hearts.

The following is an excerpt from an article in the Washington Post on Monday:

"Garden officials expect “peak smell” to occur early Monday morning, and the flower to remain open for an estimated 24 to 48 hours. Then it will begin to collapse on itself. The last corpse flower to bloom at the U.S. Botanic Garden was in 2007."

Notice the part that says that it will begin to collapse upon itself. Notice also that this flower bloomed in 2007 and the economy began to collapse upon itself shortly after. I believe that this time we will begin to see not only the nation's economy begin to collapse, but also the nation itself.
