Now We Worry

The way, the why, the timing of the firing of FBI Director,  James Comey, baffles us.   No partisanship here,  however.

But now we worry.   We wrote in February,

When we held positions overnight on Wall Street, we used to go home worried about global instability and what was going on in the “Arab Street.”   Now we worry about the American Street.  –  Circus Trumps Politic

We often worry about the growing fragility of the stability of American society, especially given the rapidly widening wealth gap.

Who would have imagined the actions of a Tunisian street vendor would lead to the destabilizing effects of the Arab Spring?    Let us not allow the failure of our imagination to catch us off guard, folks.

Could the firing of Comey be the tipping point that sparks political instability in the most stable democracy in the world?   We don’t know and we sure hope not.

But the social fabric of our society sure seems fragile to us.   Keep it on your radar.

    The FBI Director should have been gone long ago. He compromised his office on the Clinton email investigation (and the Democrats wanted to fire him). From then on he has compromised his office and been a spokesman when it was not his place to do so. The firing was abrupt and unleaked (heaven forbid), but it was called for by both parties within the last 6 mo. Forget it; concentrate of the next appointment.
