listing the Liar’s lies

When was the last time a US president’s lies filled an entire page of the New York Times? When has there been a time in our nation’s history when so many ignored the lies to continue supporting such a real loser?

The growing shame of our country is not the ignorance, greed and total immorality of #BLOTUS. The true shame of our nation is the willing acceptance and continued support of such a man by all those who do not care about the reality of what he is and what he grabbing.

ramming through the “wealthcare” bill

This isn’t democracy at work…it is unadulterated greed;  partisan politics working to benefit the wealthy, with no pretense of helping those in our society with the greatest need. Every senator voting for this bill is sending a clear and unambiguous one-finger salute to the vast majority of our nation.

an uncertain future

The United Nations High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR) has just announced that there are over 65,000,000 refugees that have fled their homeland. That’s the highest number in history. Over 12,000,000 of these refugees are from one country, Syria.

At issue is not only their future, but the future of the world. How this part of our human family is received, how they are treated, and how they are accepted will determine not only what will ultimately happen to them, but exactly who we are and the values we truly espouse.

I have watched families fleeing their burning homes while dodging sniper fire. I have had the privilege to visit dozens of refugee camps and camps for the internally displaced, and have seen firsthand the fear, the anguish and the heartbreak of those driven from their homes.

In the end, it boils down to opening our arms to others in need, even as we would hope arms would be opened to our families if in the same tragic circumstances. We cannot go too far wrong just hewing as closely as possible to the Golden Rule.

lies of a wannabe king

Even George Orwell couldn’t have imagined this amount of doublespeak and overt lying. #BLOTUS is the undisputed “Lord of the Lies.” Bruce Riedel lets us know  once again that our Liar-in-Chief cannot be trusted.

And now  the Cheetos-colored, wannabe king is verbally attacking one of our biggest allies in the Middle East. Is he truly this stupid?

Not just a coincidence…
