Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, a co-author of the Federalist Papers — and an immigrant himself — argued that “high crimes and misdemeanors” could be defined as “abuse or violation of some public trust.” This president has clearly already exceeded these standards. Congress has impeached past presidents for far less.

Sometimes it can be difficult to get our heads around the massive injustice of the GOP tax plan. The numbers are staggering, and the sheer immorality of the Republican leaders is beyond comprehension.
The illustration above is an attempt to give a graphic picture of the reality of what’s going down. #BLOTUS and his Republican cohorts are desperate for a win, and they are obligated to pay back their mega donors. This tax bill will do both while most of us will suffer the consequences.
Every concerned/outraged citizen needs to contact their representatives and shout/scream “NO.” And we need to do it now.
While the White House waffles and delays any significant response to the deadliest mass shooting in US history, at least one member of Congress tell it like it is. #BLOTUS and his cronies are not about to antagonize their base by taking action. Where does it stop?
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.
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.
