GOP tax plan: test failed

Was just talking about the difference between the Roosevelts and people like William Randolph Hearst. The Roosevelts used their wealth to make the world a better place, as opposed to building a big mansion and filling it with European art.

Maybe this should be the test of tax reform as well…just a thought. From all I’ve seen, the Republican Tax Bill does just the opposite.

We really don’t need to”help” our already profitable corporations and the wealthiest of the wealthy in our country. This tax plan doesn’t move us forward as a nation. It rewards the rich and ignores those needing help the most.

The Republican tax plan doesn’t make our country great, and it has nothing to do with progress. It is simply another demonstration of those in power paying back their wealthy backers. It is shameful at best, and morally repugnant to the core.

David Letterman on #BLOTUS

I have never been a big fan of David Letterman. But, that said, he nailed it with this comment.

We have never seen a more corrupt leader in the White House. We have never, at least in my lifetime, seen a president  that has demonstrated such incompetence, ignorance and blatant disregard for the Constitution. We have never seen a president that consistently lies, attacks the media, or creates such discord and divisiveness.

And this is on top of all of us realizing the absolute strangle hold that Putin has on the Lord of the Lies. This presidency will go down as the worst in our history, It cannot end soon enough. And, as Letterman stated, it’s time to stand up and demand he be held accountable. Enough is enough. Mueller cannot move fast enough.

 

#BLOTUS at the UN (part II)

This snapshot of those listening to Trump’s speech at the UN is priceless. It really does capture the moment better than words. This is what happens when a “dotard” gets to play in public.

a hundred ways to kneel

Let the beauty we love be what we do. There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground. ~ Rumi

This beautiful quote by one of my favorite poets is especially meaningful to me this morning as I have been reading through the final printed proof of my newest book, The Language of Love. A book of ecstatic poetry in the Sufi tradition, it is my spin on contemporizing the attraction we all have for the great lover. I am planning to have the official release by the beginning of September, both for Amazon and Kindle.
