Yep, folks, it’s a mental disorder.
Jews with a Kabbalistic bent like to use an Aramaic expression to describe this existence: Alma deshikra, world of falsehood. Through my life I have been comforted by the notion that much of the truth that does seep into contemporary consciousness begins its journey here in the United States. Yet with each new major utterance by our President, I am overwhelmed by the distorted lens through which he filters our experiences. The world Barack Obama describes is very close to being the exact opposite of reality. With the launching of a nuclear rocket by North Korea and his response in a major address in the Czech Republic, we are again confronted with this inversion of truth.
